Unfortunately, Apple doesn't allow SD card expansion and even the camera connection kit is limited in utility. If you haven't decided which model of the new iPad to buy, or if you wish the iPad or or iPhone you already own had more storage, you might want to consider the Wi-Drive from Kingston.

Contacts Duster Pro is one of those must have apps for anyone who uses their device to keep track of the information about their friends and family.  As just about anyone knows who has had their phone for any length of time it is very simple to let all your contacts get out of date and unorganized because people today are constantly moving, changing jobs and even getting new phone numbers.  This app will help you organize everything to make them easy to find and use any time you want.

Big Guns App Review

With the large success of mob boss games found on the market; many developers are tapping into its popularity to create the newest one.  This includes Big Gun; a mafia style game that offers deadly missions, amazing parties, loud music, and the opportunity to run an entire criminal gang.  Of course; you are not automatically the boss when you first begin.  As with any mob game; you have to work up to being the head honcho and this particular game will have you working hard. 



A first look at iOS 5.1 -- available now

image

Even if you're not getting a new iPad or Apple TV, yesterday's Apple event is relevant to your iOS world, thanks to the release of iOS 5.1. It's not a major upgrade, but it does add a few useful new features. You can see an overview on CNET. One of the most requested new features is now available: the ability to delete individual photos in Photo Stream. Another important feature is the ability to take a quick photo without unlocking your device. This was first available in iOS 5, but wasn't always visible. Now it is.



Apple News: By the numbers

image

A few numbers of note from today's Apple event:

585,000 apps, 25 billion downloaded (as noted a few days ago.)  200,000 specifically formatted for iPad!

315 million iOS devices through 2011

62 million iOS devices in Q4 2011

15.4 million iPads in Q4 2011 (they claim HP sold 15.1 million PCs in that quarter!)

362 retail stores, 110 million visitors in Q4 2011 including the bustling Grand Central store (I was there, the day a petition was submitted to improve working conditions at Foxconn.)

100 million iCloud users - Once your data is in the iCloud, it's unlikely you'll want to leave the Apple ecosystem and have to deal with transferring your iLife!  And that my friends, is why it's free!
