Documents To Go Upgrade Available

image

For all you users out there using the regular version of Documents To Go like me, there has been an update to it.The new additions include an in app upgrade via purchase to their premium version, the ability to freeze rows and columns, PDF view rotation, and the now viewing of RTF and TIFF files. You can also set up a gmail account for apparent attachment viewing from there (I do not have a gmail account so I can't comment on that).



Use Find In Page to find text in Mobile Safari

image

 Our uber-smart man Werner posted up a great tutorial on how to do this last year using a simple cut/paste operation of some javascript code, but if you want a more iPhone-integrated page search--one that is a real app (without having to trick up a bookmark)--for 99 cents you can grab "Find In Page" in the app store. The dev (blog link below) is trying to get the word out, and it looks like a valuable addition, at least until a future iPhone version adds the feature.

Jumping into the middle of the iPhone video camera fray is Qik Video Camera ($1.99) by Qik Inc.which is amazing, and has edged my other favorites iVideoCamera and ShowTime out of the lead.



Need an Upgrade, There’s an App For That..

image

          I thought I would write a little bit about my switch from my old pocket PC to my touch. I did some research on the productivity and organization software I used and wanted before I decided to change last year. I see discussions now and then about people wanting to upgrade to a newer or replacement device that is not phone related, such as myself. I had written an article for a long term test that was featured in a UK magazine last year. Some of my notes are below as well as some current updates I have done since.



Awesome Note

image



I found an awesome way to keep all my tasks and thoughts together.  The app is Awesome Note.  I could describe it - but the pictures below are worth 1,000 words. 

I wrote a review of Evernote a couple weeks ago.  That is still the best at keeping my research, recipes, etc. notes together.  What makes Awesome Note even more awesome - it syncs with Evernote.  It also syncs with Google docs - if you haven't jumped on the Evernote bandwagon yet. 

There is a small learning curve with Awesome Note - but it is very small - the video below will help. 

Bottom Line: 
Worth $3.99 - a must have for moms. I give it 8/10.

Creative Notebooking

 I love notebooks and I love to write in them, whether traditional paper notebooks or notes on my iPhone. KabukiVision offers an iPhone app especially for people like me called NoteMaster.



iLend

Do you wonder where that book is you enjoyed so much last month? How about your favorite drill? Maybe you lent it out and can’t remember who you lent it to. You need iLend.  

This simple little app easily keeps track of whom you lent what, whether it’s a book, tool, article of clothing, or any other object.

Dragon Dictation-The Killer Ap?

image

At last I think I've found my killer ap for the iPhone.  It is "Dragon Dictation" from Nuance Software (http://www.nuance.com). Based on their "Dragon Naturally Speaking" for the PC software, they have ported a significant portion of the functionality to the iPhone platform.  I found the speed and accuracy of this ap to be extraordinary... especially given that it is FREE (at the moment). Search for "Dragon Dictation" at the iTunes Application store to locate this ap.
