iOS 5.0 and iCloud 


Has Apple changed the enterprise game again?

The iOS 5.0 announcement in June unveiled the much anticipated iCloud service that enables users to synchronize their information automatically between devices. Now when you purchase a song, book, or application through iTunes (or rip your own music to your iPod) it will automatically be backed-up and copied to any other iOS or Mac OS devices you have registered for the service. It's a pretty cool addition to the platform, and will relieve a lot of consumer pain; but the corresponding announcement of an iCloud API raises some questions about how this will further impact iPhone and iPad use in the workplace.

Feeding the Need to Read: 
RSS Feed Readers on the iPad


When I started writing about mobile devices, I found the best way to track the latest events was to follow a number of my favorite websites. Unfortunately, the number of websites I followed grew, and eventually, my entire morning commute was spent jumping from one site to the next gathering information. There simply had to be a better way… and as I soon learned, there was. It was not long before I finally discovered the little orange button which hovers on the side of virtually every website I read. Of course, I am referring to the RSS feed button.

App Review - iTask

Keeping track of everything you have to do these days is hard!  Calendars are cumbersome and involve constant updating, crossing out and who/what is going to remind you to look at the calendar in the first place?!Your iPhone is most likely near you all the time, right?  You already know how to use the alarm, the timer, etc. Perhaps you even utilize the calendar feature as well. 

The iTask app aims to take control of your projects, your appointments and scheduling and allow you to control and keep track (this is an important point) of everything at each stage through completion.  As every good project manager knows, projects aren’t controlled and perfected by the end results alone, but by the milestones along the way.

Remember "ACT!" the database program?  Back in the late 1980's and 1990's, DOS and Windows users (like me) relied on it for contact management long before Salesforce.com ever existed.  Well, you can thank Mike Muhney, one of the creators of ACT, for that powerful software.  Now, Muhney brings a similar set of features to the iPhone world, where such capabilities are even more valuable, in an app called VIPorbit.
