Meteoric Download Manager LITE -- free app is the only one to let you capture streaming video

I haven't checked out this claim, but according to the publicist, Meteoric Download Manager is the only iOS app that can capture streaming video. If there's an online video that you like, you can now capture and store it on your iOS device and keep it for offline viewing.

Billed as a "Swiss Army Knife for the iPhone," Meteroric allows you to download and manage content, sync to Firefox, play files on a media player, and grab IOS playable videos.

Bed Bug Alert -- If you're traveling, you might want to get this app

image

I guess there's an app for just about everything — including a new one called Bed Bug Alert ($1.99) that alerts you to infestations, and allows you to report sightings. You can view by your current location, view top 10 cities with infestations, and look up specific locations. The app also has facts about bed bugs, and you can use the app to report sightings.



Facing a Crisis?
 Your iPhone and iPad can help you through it!


Your iPhone and iPad can help you through it

Earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, tsunamis, and family tragedies are all stressful events, but you can keep the stress at a minimum with the help of your iPhone and iPad. Here we'll look at some apps and features you can take advantage of when life gets very difficult.

Thrutu -- new free app lets you share media and data during a call

Just out today, Thrutu (free) seems an amazingly useful app. You can actually share data and media with someone while you're talking to that person on your iPhone. It works with other iPhone users — and also with Android users. You can share your location such that you see each other's position updating live on a map. You can snap and share a photo, or send one from your gallery. And you can send contact information such that contact details appear instantly in the other caller's address book. One feature is perhaps more playful than functional: you can vibrate the other person’s phone.



This is how you will want to watch Flash(-only) videos and use dynamic Flash content

Flash support has always (according to some people, painfully) been missing from the iOS platform. In the article below, I explain how you can watch any kind of Flash videos (via SkyFire) and how you can use full(!) Flash (and even Silverlight!) applications on your iPad (via AlwaysOnPC). All this without having to jailbreak!
