Awesome Note Update

image

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.

They have recently added some really cool features.  I'm going to include all the screen shots from their website for those of you who are not familiar with it.  It's easier to see it, than explain it.



Penultimate - for drawings

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.



iThoughtsHD Product Review

I have been a big fan of mind mapping software since my good friend and former co-worker Glenn Ferrel introduced the concept to me nearly 10 years ago.  He showed me how a complex project or process with multiple relationships could be easily described and managed using the mind map approach.  This allows relationships to be clumped together to help show relationships between concepts and activities.  These ideas branch out from a centralized theme or objective and fluidly show the connections between the thoughts, ideas and objectives identified.  Unlike more strict and discrete project management tools like Gantt charts,  mind maps allow free association/disassociation as ideas formulate, shift and re-synthesize into a more crystalized state.  The best us



Whistle Phone, how it sounds

Windows XP on an iPad? I declare!

What you're seeing in the picture to the right is lots of folks' worst nightmare: Windows XP on an iPad. The real thing and fully functional. How is this possible? With a VNC client (I use VNC Viewer). The iPad is not really running Windows XP, of course; it's just running a piece of software that lets you view, control and use Macs, Linux boxes and, yes, PCs. 



Never too old to learn

Since getting my iPad I've been wanting to find out what my parents think about the device, so this past weekend I headed down to the coast with my son and iPad to relax and visit with my parents, and find out if they would like to try using an iPad.



Opera Mini — speed test shows free browser loads pages 4 times faster, but loses to Safari in other tests

image

I came across some speed tests on Lifehacker for the free Opera Mini browser. When it comes to loading web pages it's over 4 times faster than Safari. But the testing shows that it's slower than Safari in a couple other respects. The review says this is likely due to Safari's privileged position as the default browser and the fact that this is first version of Opera Mini.



New free iPhone browser Opera Mini downloaded over 1 million times on first day in App Store

image

Be sure to read our blogger Werner's review of this new, free web browser for the iPhone. Opera Mini was downloaded over 1 million times on its first day in the App Store yesterday! That's amazing. It's currently the top download among all categories. The beauty of Opera Mini is that it routes web pages to a server before they get to your iPhone. That server compresses the pages up to 90%, greatly speeding up your web browsing. Plus, it has other great features.



iPad post number two

image

I figured that maybe with a little help from BlogPress ($2.99) I might have some luck being able to upload images to my iPL blog since I was having difficulty uploading images from my iPad via my regular Safari log in. Still getting used to BlogPress, oops how to I change the image orientation?

When comparing Notes to Store with Pages on the iPad, Notes to Store is a viable alternative for some users.
