Look to Livio to make your next car more iOS friendly

image

Our readers know of Livio Radio (see my review here) for their Bluetooth in car radio hardware kit, available at your local Radio Shack, but you may not know that they have created Livio Connect, an API targeted at hardware makers and app developers. I had the opportunity to speak with Jake Sigal, CEO of Radio.



Buzan Brings MindMapping Freedom to the iPad

image

I like to Mindmap. I organize my life, my writing and my projects with mindmaps. And ThinkBuzan, the software arm of mindmap inventor Tony Buzan, has just released what may be the ultimate experience for mind mappers: iMindMap Freedom. Before Freedom, iMindMap was an OK app on iOS and a pretty substaintial authoring environment on the Mac and PC.



Middle School Confidential graphic novel apps offer novel ways to enhance confidence

image
I've written before about this company's (Electric Eggplant) first app, but the latest one, Real Friends and the other kind, builds on the past one and focuses on friendships. It's hard for middle school kids to make friends and deal with the cattiness and prejudices that seem to crop up as kids enter a new school.

How are you guys loving your new iPads?

Right?

The improvements are just incredible. I’ve been cradling mine in my arms like a proud papa since the day I picked it up, and I’m pretty stoked to use it to help me with my travel plans this summer. I found some really cool iPad apps over at Market Watch, and I picked out a few of my favorites to test out for you guys.



VIP Orbit: Groups, circles and orbits, oh my!

image

I wrote about VIP Orbit a while ago, but they've made some enhancements that leverage the real estate of the iPad, and address some of the cosmetic concerns I raised in my initial review. As Hannibal used to say on the A Team, I love it when a plan comes together. Well, Mike Muhney, the creator of both VIP Orbit and of the highly popular ACT database program must love how the world has migrated to both circles in the case of Google and the cloud in the case of Apple and others.



Apple's iPad Textbook Initiative Doesn't Go Far Enough

Learning is an act of assembly. The iPad textbook initiative goes some way toward the assembly of content, but it remains artifact-centric. In other words, the world moves from revolving around a next book, to revolving around an e-textbook.

Here are the advantages I see to the current approach:



InFrame Foto: Powerful Functionality, Simple Interface, Instant Art and its Free!

image

It takes a great development team to put the power of iOS to work doing something useful in a third party app.  It takes a really great dev team to create something that’s not only useful, but produces superior results.  Apparently, InFrame Foto has a really, really great dev team.

InFrame Foto is a photo editing app that shines most when it comes to creating your own personal photo collages.  Rather than being an overall photo editor, InFrame Foto focuses on being the best of the best at giving you options to create great mash-ups of your pics.
