MyShelf Review - Note syncing bliss without the privacy issues!

image

I really gave Evernote a huge try. Pumped loads of web info, article research, photos and screenshots in there.  Even had my camera SD card configured to post images to my account (check out my review here on how to do this). The love affair ended really not because of any one thing, but a lot of nuisances. General sluggishness and sync issues that crept in. Bigger problems like somehow losing extensive posts or article content I had spent hours crafting, and more obnoxious things like crashing and hanging up. If you looking for an app that can give you simple note/interest gathering capability with little in the way of distractions, you might want to try out MyShelf as an alternative. It won't knock EN off it's lofty perch, but it does let you share note and interest data across your devices.



HotDoc for iPad

image

The iPad is one of the most powerful and versatile tablets available on the market today.  It does, however, have a few important things that are lacking.  One of them is the file management system that it uses.  There is no good and easy way to manage your office and other files, until now.  HotDoc was developed to have a focus on the ergonomic and aesthetic user interface of the iPad and put it to use in managing all your files.



New 1Tapps App, Bluetooth ON directly on your Home Screen, and much more

New 1Tapps App, Bluetooth ON directly on your Home Screen, and much more

 

1Tapps is a new app that lets users engage in the most popular smart phone activities just going back to the phone’s home screen. In today’s fast paced world, think of it as speed dial for phone applications. One tap gets users where they need to be.

1Tapps is really ingenious in that it takes all of the most commonly used apps, gathers them in one location and puts shortcuts directly on the user device home screen. It’s not just a second simulated home page, its actual icons on the device home screen and with just 1 tap, the phone user is able to accomplish their task. 1Tapps does all that its competitors do but it puts the shortcuts directly on the iPhone Home Screen.

New App Lets you Track Your iPhone/iPad or Locate Family Members On the Web

 

Santa Clara, CA — September 17th, 2012 — Mobile smart phones are changing the way we live, socialize and do our businesses. Our phones have replaced many other once-common tools, from GPS devices to handheld gaming consoles, notebooks, calendars, point-and-shoot cameras, newspapers and portable audio players.

Nexscience, a mobile software startup, announced the release of a new mobile application called Device Locator for iPhone and iPad. The app lets you track your iPhone or iPad in real time, from the web. Family members who are carrying an iPhone or iPad can also track each other.


Doc Editing Shootout - CloudOn versus Documents Free!!

image

Cloud document services are becoming the defacto standard for creating and editing documents. The advent and rise of iPad is encroaching heavily into computing realms that were previously a firm domain of the PC. Gone are the days when you wrung your hands over a Word file marooned on your home computer. In this review, I compare two popular iPad cloud editors; one free and one free-with-ads. CloudOn is an excellent and completely free app that is as good as any editing suite I have used, being MS Office based. Documents Free is a capable editing alternative with fewer features. Both of these apps will allow you to connect to popular cloud storage services, access and upload your important docs. Who will be the last editor standing?... Read on to find out!



Copper River Bags. Handcrafted leather iBags, guaranteed to last a lifetime.

image

That which makes something a “great deal” is very relative and subjective.

 

For instance, for the unrivaled security they provide, I would call the Lifeproof line of iDevice products a “deal”, even though they might be some of the pricier iDevice cases on the market. With regards to quality and protection, the old adage “You get what you pay for.” is often true, especially when it comes to products that claim to be durable and built to last.

 

When it comes to a quality manufacturer of iPad and laptop bags, you’d be hard pressed to find a better deal than a Copper River Bag. First of all, Copper River Bags come with a 100-year warranty! I guarantee you, not many companies would say such a thing about their product. This puts them in league with such reputable, top companies as Eddie Bauer, L.L. Bean, Leatherman and the handful of other manufacturers whose warranties extend throughout the life of their product.

 

Copper River Bags are nothing short of works of art. Practical, durable works of art mind you, but art nonetheless. Each bag is hand crafted here in America in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains. Using rugged, full grain leather, each Copper River Bag is built to carry your devices and gadgets, now and for generations to come. Truly, if you decide to invest in a Copper River Bag, it is something that, barring any unforeseen natural disaster, you will likely find yourself leaving to a loved one in your will.
