When I travel, I need a way to move documents back and forth from my computer to my clients. Finally, I've found an application that meets that need — ReaddleDocs.
With ReaddleDocs, I can:
• Transfer files with or without WiFi (I can use my 3G network)
• Read TXT, PDF, Word, Excel, HTML, and Powerpoint documents
• Password protect my documents

Use these iPhone tips to have the edge on all the other shoppers.
There's an app for everything, including Thanksgiving. MacWorld reviews eight of the apps, ranging from recipes to a TurkeyTimer. Thanksgiving Dinner Recipes ($1.99) gets the highest rating — four mice on a five-mouse scale. Each of the 60 recipes includes a picture of the dish, description, list of ingredients, and steps for preparing. You can mark favorites, and automatically generate a shopping list.

This is one of those iPhone apps that looks simple on the surface, but is potentially useful beyond what you might expect. Yes, the app store is chock full of picture manipulation apps, but Peter Facinelli’s (one of the hit Twilight series movie stars) Vampire Transformer (by 211me.com) provides some clever pix editing tools, a good menu system, and adds social network sharing to the mix. It was indeed fun turning my wife into a vampiress...and a hot one, too if I do say so…
Check out this 1-minute video. A guy uses his iPhone to blow out candles, via the Blower app.
It's kind of silly, but fun to see that it actually works. App is $0.99, but the reviews say that it doesn't work that well.
Not only is this a useful app, but there's also an interesting backstory. The person who got the idea, Shayne Faerber, is a waiter. An iPhone development company picked up the idea, and now Shayne is dreaming of riches. Mall Maps ($2.99) contains over 1,000 malls in the U.S. and uses your iPhone's GPS to find the malls nearest you. Or you can browse by city/state or Zip Code. Once you identify a mall that you want to go to, the app gives you store listings and actual floor plans. Plus, the app gives you Google Maps directions to the mall location. Seems like just the app for this shopping season.
With NumPad, you can use your iPhone or iPod Touch as a numeric keypad, an extended keyboard, or to annotate music. If you use a Mac with OS X 10.4 or later, NumPad does not require any additional software on your computer. The app connects easily through Screen Sharing, simply by following the directions found on the app. Windows users will need a VNC Server software like RealVNC.
