speedClock -- $0.99 app lets you use camera to measure the speed of objects

image

I like to write about novel uses of the iOS camera, and here's yet another astonishing instance: an app that lets you measure the speed of cars, boats, skaters, skiers, cyclists, running dogs, model cars, tennis serves, baseball pitches, soccer free-kicks — and anything that can be recorded by the video camera. Version 3.0 of speecClock - velocity radar ($0.99) was just released, adding the ability to measure small objects such as a tennis ball or baseball.

App Review: SpeedUpTV: Fully-loaded Video Player, File Viewer, Folder Manager & More

image

SpeedUpTV is a new highly rated video player for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, brimming with added features, from mix1009. With 4+ stars as of this review, it seemed time to find out what all the hype is about.  

As the name suggests, SpeedUpTV gives the user some control—actually, a lot of control—over playback speed.  Users can play back videos on their device from half the original rate of speed and up to twice as fast. While that’s the feature that the app pushes in its title, it offers a few pleasant surprises for those that expect nothing more.

 



iPhone App Review: ContactsXL 3 + Sync: Fully-loaded, Functional, Fun Contact Manager

image

When an app like ContactsXL3 + Sync from Jonathon Teboul hits the app store, one tends to wonder why it takes a third-party developer to provide iPhone users with this level of quality and functionality. 

ContactsXL 3 + Sync is a contact manager that blows the native app right out of the water.  Basically, the point of ContactsXL 3 + Sync is to do everything the native iPhone address book should do, but it doesn’t.  It’s also got some added extras you didn’t even know you were missing.

Coding tips: creating PNG (JPG) and QuickTime files – a benchmark video generator for iOS + OS X

UPDATE (09/12/2012): I've created two truly 1080p versions of the counter video. They're HERE (non-streaming-optimized) and HERE (optimized for streaming with Subler). The former has a H.264 level of 4.2 (the latter is 4.1) and, consequently,  can't be played in their Web browser. (Neither 4.1 nor 4.2 1080p60 can be synched to iOS devices directly. Playback from third-party apps using hardware decoding works, of course.) HERE's a 4.1-level version of the same file.



App Review: Seembee allows you to finally stop worrying about document management

image

There are a myriad of document management apps available in Apple's App Store; some of these apps rise above the rest, heads held high, and accomplish their set goal. Other apps of this type are as much a failure as that Super Mario Brothers film that we all like to pretend never happened. With Seembee, Appsli Business Development has created an app that they believe will simplify document management and storage once and for all, and I believe they've succeeded at accomplishing this lofty goal.
