As we approach the end of May, a lot of people are looking ahead to their summer vacation. If you're planning to visit a national park, you'll want to download Chimani National Parks (free), which has information and news about the nation's 394 National Parks System locations. The app includes details on all national parks, monuments, memorials, seashores, recreational areas, sites, battlefields, historical parks, and parkways. It also gives you access to the news provided by the National Park Traveler website.
First off, I am a BIG fan of Piel Frama cases. I had one for my first iPhone, my iPhone 4 and my iPad 1. When I purchased my iPad 2, I definitely wanted to protect it with their updated case.
With WindowSeat, you can view pictures and read information about landmarks, geographic locations and other points of interest as you fly over them.
i have been accused of being easily impressed when it comes to apps on my iPad. Well today Quest Visual released a translation app for the iPhone that caused my jaw to drop. It is called Word Lens and it's free with demos included. Each language is $10, on sale for $5 until Dec. 31 by in app purchase.
If you can watch this video and not be totally and completely blown away, then I'll shut up. But don't plan on that happening.
I took a three day getaway to Boston and Salem for the Halloween weekend. I took this opportunity to really put my iPad to use. It was very handy and convenient to have in my bag when we were out and about. The only thing that was a real downer was that the hotel wifi was very slow. But besides that, it worked great for downtime and for directions and event info. I did not use it for any work purposes. It worked great with the wifi when I was on the train into Boston on my first day.
Here are a few of the Apps that I have used this weekend as well as on previous visits there.
