What’s Your Favorite Gmail Client On The iPhone?

Probably there are a lot of you who don’t have the Gmail app installed on your device. And why should you, when your iPhones and iPads came with a pre-installed Mail app, where you can check all your mails with one tap. I, for one, didn’t even know Google had a mail app until today. But you know what? You should really give it a try. And even stick with it, especially if you only have Google mail accounts.

The Gmail app is extremely similar to your regular Mail app. There’s no surprise there. I liked the design a bit better, but basically it’s the same. Same window, same buttons, but not necessarily in the same place you can find them with the regular email app. Basically, it’s the same. But that’s only at a first glance.

The first difference between Gmail and Mail is clear: while one only supports your Gmail accounts, the other can hold all type of email [...]

What’s the nearest pizza place or who is Albert Einstein might be questions you would normally ask Siri or pop open a browser window and search. But did you know you have an easier way of doing this? It’s called Google Search and it’s *the* app to have on your home screen. Take Google Search with you anywhere you go and enjoy the power and speed of Google’s search engine right in your pocket.

If with other Google apps for the iPhone you had to either go through a couple of setup steps or you had to already have an account on Google, with Google Search, all you need is the app. Open it and you can search the web without any hassle. Having this quick initial setup was a joy for me!

Google Search comes bundled with your regular desktop search options. You can search images, which will show you results side by side, with a quick preview for each [...]

iFile Download Manager iPhone App Review.

It’s always hard to keep track of all your files. Because, although all this technological development was meant to smooth things up, sometimes it does just the opposite. And having so many devices only means more files scattered all around the place. You start a project on your laptop, take [...]

Years from now, I think people will no longer use actual notebooks, sketch books or planners. Because who needs to carry all these things around when you have all sorts of apps that help you write down just what you need, when you need it, with a single tap on your light, beautifully designed iPhone or iPad. Can’t think of any of these apps that could make your life easier? Well, then let me introduce you to Paper. Apple’s pick for 2012’s iPad app of the year, available on the AppStore, of course.

Paper is literally all the paper you need no matter what you are looking to do. Write down your ideas, draw a chart, make a sketch, take notes…all you need is Paper. Forget about buying tons of notebooks. With Paper, you have all the notebooks you need. As many pages as you need. Customized just the way you want them to. Who needs actual paper, when you [...]

If you’ve followed along with our IFTTT article last week, you’ve seen how easy it is to set up some simple email notifications for when your favorite blog (Appbite, wink, wink) posts a new article. But what happens if you have more than a few blogs you’re following and they’re all pretty active publishers? WEll, the gist of it is that you’ll see a ton of email coming to your account. That may be fine for some of us who live in our Inbox, but for others, email is counter-productive. But fear not, there’s an easy way to stay up to date with Appbite and other blogs without worrying about email overload. Enter RSS readers.

In short, a RSS reader is a piece of software, desktop, mobile or browser-based, that allows its users to read RSS and atom feeds. Whenever a blog or publication that supports these types of feeds (and they pretty much all do have it) [...]

Manage The Important Aspects Of Your Business With Beesy

I’ve seen my share of project management software. They’re all so future rich and it seems that developers are tempted to stuff everything but the kitchen sink into one, just to market it as an all-in-one. A lot of the times, it’s not really working and we’re left to trying to make different software fit for different purposes play well together on the same device. Or even stick to using a todo.txt file on the desktop for managing lists. I’ve personally been using Wunderlist since it came out. It doesn’t pack a powerful punch, but has (almost) everything I need to manage tasks. Their iOS version (as opposed to the stable Mac desktop version), was a disappointment. I’m waiting on Wunderslist 2 to come out, but until they prove otherwise, I must admit that when it comes to all-in-ones, I’m still stuck to using different things for different purposes. Perhaps Beesy [...]

Too Lazy To Search For A Contact? Get iCallU!

iCallU is a simple iPhone app that tries to transform your iPhone into a traditional phone by letting you search for a contact old-school style: spelling a name on the dialing keypad. The app’s T9 search function will take over and show you a contact associated with that name. The app is available for $0.99 on the AppStore.

Open up the app and notice that every number on the keypad has a set of letters associated. For example, “2″ has the letters A, B and C. To call someone, start typing his name. So if I want to call Alex, I just have to touch “2″ and Alex’s name is displayed. If you have more than one name beginning with that letter, continue typying to fine-tune the search. Once you found the contact, tap “Call.” Now, iCallU will just launch the regular Phone app and call that contact.

So far, I have not [...]
