Did you know the U.S. Government is creating apps for mobile devices? They currently have 18 apps available including an alternative fuel locator, FBI's Most Wanted, Product Recalls, and WhiteHouse.Gov. Of course, they are all free! Check them out on the US Government Website.

 



Review: Kensington PowerBolt Micro Charger

image

This is a pretty neat little car charger if you want to charge your devices while on the go. Best of all it chargers a multitude of idevices (as you can see below) including the iPad and the new iPhone 4. I think that adds value.

In my test, I used my iPod Touch and iPad. I had no issues providing power to them from my car. With the purchase, you get the micro plug and a black cable. The cable looks and feels heavy duty, thicker than the standard cable that comes from Apple.

Preschool Memory Match might be for preschoolers, but I had fun with it, too!

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

image

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!"

According to the Atlantic Monthly, on Monday, a bible app cracked the top 10 highest grossing iPad book apps of all time. The NIV Bible Reader is currently getting 3,000 downloads a day.  The app is also ranked number 2 on the iPhone just behind Green Eggs and Ham.



Mix: Free iPad Apps

image

I downloaded an app the other day for my ipad called Appstream for iPad. It reminded me of the old apple store window display that had all the cardboard apps hanging. This is kind of a fun way to find an app. I chose the setting to show me free iPad apps. The apps are displayed in real time. Click on an icon and a new box comes up that gives the pertinent information as well as screenshots and it redirects you to the app store.

 

I downloaded the below other apps that I am mentioning from Appstream also.
