LightboxHD is an App designed for creative people to show off their talents. Using the large iPad screen designers can easily demonstrate to clients before & after shots showing how their work will transform the subject.
I can’t even begin to tell you how useful this next app might have been a few months ago. I was doing a little remodeling to my apartment and needless to say I took the project upon myself. Measuring each wall, the furniture, the carpet, my desk, everything but the kitchen sink, well, that took a lot of my energy and I couldn’t get really organized with all the notes on paper.
This is where My Measures & Dimensions would have been a life-saver. If you need to keep track of dimensions, this is for you. You can pretty much use this app for everything from home decorating projects to fun things like keeping track of your little one’s height over time.
First off, you need something to measure. You can either take a picture of what’s in front of you, or choose one from your Camera roll. The photo can be of any object or [...]
With the Holidays around the corner, shopping is the activity on everyone’s mind. What do we need to for the Christmas dinner? What presents should we buy for mom and dad? Do we have all the Christmas tree decorations we need? It’s a busy time for everyone and technology should be here to help us keep track of these things. In come shopping lists right on your iPhone. There’s a big variety of such productivity apps in the AppStore. Today, we’re going to stop for a second and review ShoppingList – an iPhone app with great potential but, in my humble opinion, one that missed the mark.
The screens for the app are fairly easy. Tap the “Add New” button at the corner of your screen and enter the item you want to add to the list. You can either select the item from a list that the app provides or write it yourself. You can add a picture for [...]
Productivity apps are in no way in short supply in the iTunes AppStore. ToDos, organization apps, note-taking, all you need is at the touch of your finger tips. A lot of them however offer perhaps too a complex solution for what is too simple a problem. If all you need is a way to write your ideas down and have an easy way to categorize each, then CuteTag might prove to be your answer.
CuteTag is a note-taking app at heart, but instead of relying on complex systems of categorization, it only does it one way: tagging. The developers’ idea seemed to be that it “allows you to explore your personal information in a way your natural brain does, by logical links.” (read full press release here). These logical links they assumed to be tags.
Other apps out there offer tagging as a way to keep track of your thoughts [...]
If the iPhone can’t multitask, that doesn’t mean you can’t either. Back in the older days, I was always in the habit of texting while walking on the street. My Nokia 6300 was pretty reliable and one hand was enough to be able to type out correctly what I wanted. Upgrading to the iPhone meant getting rid of this habit of walking and typing on my phone. For once, you can’t do it with one hand. And then, you need to pay 100% attention to the screen and the virtual keys. For me, it was simply impossible.
Perhaps two years too late, but with great pleasure I can say that typing and walking is back in the books for me, thanks to Easy Walk & Type. This little gimmick for the iPhone will keep you and your iPhone out of harms way while allowing you to see where you’re going and type your SMS at the same time.[...]
With all the documents you come across on your iPhone and iPod Touch, there was a dire need to have them printed on paper. Add to the queue emails, attachments, images from your Camera Roll, contact files and Web Pages, and you have a real issue. Enter EuroSmartz with Print n Share, the simply elegant iPhone app that brings you the Print button closer to your finger tips. With Print n Share, you can send print jobs to any network-connected printer which you configured via WePrint.
Print n Share is stable and pretty easy to set up. First install WePrint (freely available on their website) on your MAC or PC, and then download and install Print n Share on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Simply start up the app and let it know that you have WePrint installed and connect to the same network as the desktop running it.[...]
The online culture has been rapidly growing and given birth to today’s generation, or what others have dubbed – the “Messenger Generation.” The use of shortcuts when chatting with friends online has been under a lot of criticism. Although it’s purely debatable whether “brb” or “ttyl” is undermining education, one thing is clear enough: the use of small pictures to add expression and emotion to the otherwise plain instant electronic message has grown as an integral part of online writing. For a device such as the iPhone, missing these emoticons was clearly not acceptable. Enter iEmoji to bring emoticons to your finger tips.
iEmoji allows iPhone users to turn on their emoticons while writing an sms, note or to-do task. If there’s writing involved, emoticons are available. By turning on this [...]
