iLium’s ListPro! It’s Free

image

Many of you have either used ILium’s ListPro on another software platform or are at least aware of it. Today, iLium released ListPro for the iPod Touch and iPhone. It does require iOS 4.0 or later. But the cool part is that it’s free. I downloaded it earlier today and replaced my existing list software with this. I have never used ListPro before but I am a faithful eWallet customer (for years), and I know and like the quality that goes into that.

ZumoCast -- free app for streaming your videos and music from your computer to your iPhone or iPad

Just released today, ZumoCast (free) sounds like a great app. It lets you stream your videos and music that are on your computer to your iPhone or iPad wirelessly via 3G or Wi-Fi. No syncing necessary. It automatically converts the streaming content on-the-fly to a format appropriate for your device. One advantage of this is that because your files stay on your computer, you can avoid filling up the memory of your device. The app also lets you save music and video for offline viewing or listening.

If you have an iPhone/iPod or iPad, you don't have to buy a remote for your computer.



App Review - Zip Buddy

Have you ever needed to mail a package from a different location, and didn't know the zip code there?



Did you know that you can refresh your iDevice's memory without rebooting?

You can, it's really easy and here how. It's like a soft reset as opposed to a hard reset.



It's official folks, you can have FaceTime on your 3G network if you really want to.

Based on the choppiness of the FaceTime video, it appears to me that this is the reason at&t does not allow this to happen right now. It looks like the 3G network will work great with Data however, not with Video yet. Please read the entire blog first.



Add a second or even third monitor for $10 with Air Display!

Remember when the iPad came out and all the naysayers said "It's just a big iPod touch?"  Well, my response was "Yeah, but wouldn't a big iPod touch be GREAT?!"  It's like saying a 42" TV is just a big 13" TV.  Yes, and sign me up for the big one!  If I can have a larger screen, I'm all for it, and if I can have multiple screens, that's good too!

My colleague, Jim Karpen, wrote a preview of the $10 Air Display app from Avatron Software back in May and I've had a chance to play with the app, on my iPad and all I can say is "Holy Cow!"
