Terra -- free iPad web browser offers tabs, importing of bookmarks

image

I can't live without tabs. When I browse my personalized Yahoo news page, I click on links to items of interest and have them load in a background tab. That way I don't have to wait for pages to load when I'm ready to read specific news stories or blog posts. Terra is a free web browser for the iPad that offers tabs. It has an unusually high rating in the App Store and was recently ranked as the top free iPad app in the U.S. App Store. The new version 1.2 now adds importing of bookmarks from Safari, Firefox, and Chrome.

Home Design 3D by Livecad, might be amongst the coolest (and useful) apps for iOS I have found (if only it had Visio integration). The app works well in too many ways to count. If you are planning on redecorating, redesigning a part of your home/apartment, or want to plan your ultimate dream pad, you will want to grab this app.

Monica -- free voice-controlled personal assistant app talks to you

image

Monica (free) is a fun personal assistant that not only gives you voice control but also speaks. You can ask Monica to read aloud your email, news articles, horoscope, or Google Docs, or to access Facebook. You can also ask Monica questions, but you do have to enter text. Monica will, however, read the answer to you. A nice feature is that you don’t need to tap any buttons or anything; you get Monica’s attention by simply saying, “Monica,” and then Monica responds by giving you menu of options, from which you speak your choice.

Writepad app offers handwriting recognition

I had the opportunity to see a demo of Phatware's Writepad at Macworld and was very impressed. It lets you simply write on the screen using your finger or a stylus pen rather than using the onscreen keyboard, and translates your writing into typed characters. You can then edit that text — copy, paste, insert characters, etc. — via simple gestures. The app has a ton of features, such as shorthand, which lets you enter just two characters to evoke frequently used words or phrases.

I've been using alternate browsers for some time, mainly because I wasn't at all satisfied with Safari's tabbed browsing. I've used iCab quite a bit on my iPad, and like it a lot. I've also been using a preview copy of 360 Web Browser ($0.99), with version 3.0 finally being released in the App Store yesterday. This version is optimized for the iPad.
