Pulse Review - Feeds at your fingertips!

image

I like Flipboard, but recently have started using Pulse, and in this review, compare it to the other great news and RSS aggregator/reader for iPad. Each is excellent in it's own way, though I must admit, the side-scrolling rows that Pulse collects your feeds into are perfect for quickly scanning through content. However, I like the large splashy news displays on Flipboard and the magazine-like page turning...ahhh, 2 awesome readers, so what's a geek to do..?! Use both...

Dension car dock for iPhone

In May 2011 Dension Audio Systems introduces a new and innovative product called Dension car dock for iPhone.

 

Dension car dock for iPhone is a custom designed cradle combined with an app. Both innovative products were developed to optimise the in-car use of iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G and enable the user to make the most of their iPhone on the move.
Dension car dock for iPhone is not only a windscreen mount or a dash mount but an easy-to-use car audio interface that offers a universal in car entertainment solution.


T.i.A.| #1 iPhone and iPad news source app

T.i.A.| #1 iPhone and iPad news source app

Eldar Murtazin, the editor-in-chief of Russian mobile phone blog Mobile-Review today tweeted that iOS 5 will not be compatible with the iPhone 3GS, limiting the new operating system to the iPhone 4 and the next released model. Just one comment. Apple iPhone 3Gs wont be upgradable to iOS 5.x. iPhone 4 will. It is unclear where Murtazin obtained the information, but he has a very solid reputation on the mobile phone rumor mill. iOS 4 was released last June and was compatible with the iPhone 3G,3GS and the iPhone 4, although all models were not compatible with all of the features. Apple finally discontinued support for the iPhone 3G with the release of iOS 4.3, leaving that device at a maximum operating system version of iOS 4.2.1 pretty much making it obsolete.


Flipboard -- amazing free iPad app is a personalized magazine for all your favorite content

image

Three things amaze me about Flipboard: 1) it's astonishingly high ratings in the App Store, 2) the fact that such a great app is free, and 3) that it made me want to start viewing my Facebook and Twitter accounts again. I kept hearing about Flipboard, and I kept ignoring it: yet another aggregator of social media and RSS content. But then I tried it, and was immediately hooked.

Zite: Your Everything Digital Magazine!

image

Back on April 1st, fellow blogger Steve Overton posted about a free news app called Zite. His link is below as it has a great video demo and link to the app store.

I have been using it for a while also and I really like it. The app is easy to set up and use. After a bit, it will actually learn what you like. Steve hit the nail on the head when he said that much of it was "pleasing on the eye." I keep customizing the topics and adding more stuff.



What I Played this Week, and More News!

image

Haven't done this in awhile, so maybe I should call this "What I played this quarter!". I had to post up on JetCar Stunts though, since it's the latest game I can't stop playing (it's not a new title--released in 2009). Crazy addictive time killer is what it should be called!. Featured in iTunes essential games, you can grab it here at $1.99. Expansion course packs also available. The concept is to race through 3D high-flying aerial stunt courses with your rocket powered jet car (who wouldn't want one of those)... More app news follows...

I enjoy using my iPad to read the latest news, and I'm excited about the free app Hitpad, which I just learned about. It has a gorgeous interface and, as the press release says, It distills the news about the most important topics of the day. Very similar to Google News, it presents trending topics and aggregates a wide assortment of content related to them: news, videos, tweets, web, and photos. It has trending topics in these categories: Top Stories, Entertainment, Business, Sports, Technology, and U.S. New.
