I reviewed an app back in January 2010 (http://www.iphonelife.com/blog/3963/awesome-note) called Awesome Note.
I still love the app. I use it everyday and have recommended it to many of my friends and family.

I've just been watching the demo videos of the newly released version of HoloToy and I couldn't resist buying it. The 3-D effects look great on an iPad. The app is a work in progress but definitely has a wow factor. People are always wanting to see my iPad so it's fun having a few apps that show it off.

Penultimate is another version of a note app for the iPad and iPhone. The difference in this one is that you write with a stylus or your finger, rather than type. The big plus with this app is the Wrist Protection mode, where you can rest your wrist as you write. This makes for a much better writing experience – no stray marks! I like that.

Apple will likely be announcing the next iPhone at their developers conference next month, so we don't have long to wait. But if you're impatient to know what's in the pipeline, The Next Web has put together a handy overview of what seems to be known so far about this new phone, based in part on the two ill-gotten prototypes that have surfaced in the past month. For each of the features described in the article, the author rates the likelihood that it's true on a scale of one to five.

If you have been waiting to get a new iPhone 3Gs, your patience has certainly paid off. Starting today, Walmart stores will begin selling the 16GB version of Apple's iPhone 3Gs for a new low price of $97 with a two year contract.
Considering that the same iPhone sold for $197 at Walmart until now, you may be asking why the iPhone's are being put on a fire sale. Considering past price drop patterns on Apple devices, this can only be signaling that the new iPhone can't be too far off from being released and Apple wants to clear its current inventories as fast as possible.

With the advent of the next iPhone OS featuring the ability, according to Apple's website to "make a Voice over IP call while playing a game," iPhone-targeted VoIP-enabled SIP (Session Initiated Protocol) clients will receive renewed focus once this new OS ships. In preparation for this event, I have taken a look at one of the more well-received commercially available SIP clients for the current iPhone OS. WeePhone, developed by iPhone programmer Justin Brady. Justin has progressively improved this client application over time - the version reviewed in this article is 1.5.4.

I am not narcissistic. I do not enjoy seeing my face (especially in the morning) every time I grab my iPad. The glare is beyond ridiculous. The smudges are unbearable. I'm getting an anti-glare guard, asap.
Why doesn't the Apple Store carry the anti-glare screens? Me doth think Sir Jobs might be a touch narcissistic.

If you get an iPad 3G and are faced with the choice of buying a 250MB or unlimited data plan, my advice is to go for the cheaper 250MB at $14.95 per month. If you find that you use up the 250MB in less than two weeks, and it seems like your usage will continue at about the same level, then when your 250MB runs out, go for the $29.95 unlimited.
But in every case if your 250MB lasts longer than two weeks, you're going to be better off buying 250MB at a time.

Getting photos from my iPhone used to be a hassle -- email it to myself, download the generically-named Photo.jpg, save it as something else, then finally edit it and use it. Now, with Air Sharing Pro, transferring photos via Wi-Fi is a drag-and-drop pleasure.

There's an app called Mirror that is actually #1 in Lifestyle. It does nothing, essentially, except display a black screen (with fake lightbulbs around it), and users are expected to use it as a mirror. Now, the developer might be in the right, as Apple approved it (while lambasting Adobe Flash for the lack of quality apps it produces).
Since Apple doesn't display the full description, in iTunes, unless you click "More", they say, below the 'fold' that "You will get the same effect you have when the device is off, with a nice frame." But I've noticed that they keep changing the screenshots to somewhat overstate what it can do, and then change them back when the heat is on.

All you need to do is match the colors on the rotating tube. That’s it, just spin the rings on the cylinder, like a codex, in order to match the colors and remove them. Sounds pretty cool, and a bit on the unique side to me, so I was happy to take a look when the developers offered to send over a copy for review.

My friend, Patrick, tweeted this: AT&T's $325 termination fee hike proves they know they can't compete when their iPhone exclusivity ends. Verizon should match it as a rebate.
