7 must-have free apps for your new iPhone or iPad

image

I've seen a number of lists of apps recommended for those lucky individuals who got a new iPhone or iPad from Santa, but CNET's listing strikes me as being the most useful. They include a number of free apps that are my favorites and that I use every day. Let's take a look at some of their recommended apps. 

Flipboard — This is likely the most popular aggregator of news and content ever developed for iOS devices. Its interface is gorgeous and intuitive, and very easy to customize to your interests. Many people find it to be their favorite window onto Facebook or news or entertainment or sports, or whatever your interest is. 

 

Google Maps — When Apple dumped Google Maps in favor of its own maps solution, many were disappointed that Apple's effort was missing some of their favorite features, such as transit directions and Google Street View. Fortunately, Google eventually came out with a full-featured version of their app for iOS devices that has almost all the functionality of their highly popular maps app for Android devices. 



New York Coffee Guide App Review

If you’re a coffee lover who is living in, or planning to visit the New York area you’re going to want to download the free New York Coffee Guide.  This app was developed for and by coffee enthusiasts in the NYC area with the specific intent of finding all the best local coffee houses that brew and serve locally roasted coffees.  The app focuses only on independent coffee shops which serve coffee, though they will also review any food items that they offer as well so you know what to expect.



More iWatch rumors; Report says thinner, low-power IGZO displays coming

As we head toward the New Year, rumors are floating around of forthcoming goodies from Apple. Many people think, and Apple has hinted as much, that wearable computing will be among the Next Big Things from Apple. It would be great to see Apple do something like Google Glass, which are essentially glasses with all the capabilities of a high-powered smartphone. Today's Apple rumor is that an iWatch is in development.

What I Played this Week - Angry Birds Space HD, and Starbase Gunship!

image

Two awesome 99 cent titles this week, and likely my last WIPTW article of 2012, so a happy holidays to everyone, and here is hoping you have a great new year in 2013! Starbase Gunship is a new game from Capital j Media. A stationary 3D shooting game that puts you at the center of the action as enemy ships and incoming weapons head toward your base station. Blasting through and surviving enemy waves will allow you to build up enough creds to update your base firepower and protection levels. Angry Birds Space HD is pig busting in zero-G, and like every other Angry Birds (all of which are currently on sale), powerfully addictive.



A 6-inch iPad mini? Only a Matter of Time...

image

 

This is what I'm talking about! So many Apple pundits had complaints and negative words to say about the iPad mini before it was released, and now that this tablet-that-should-never-be has hit the market, it is one of the best selling devices in the industry. So mark my words when I say the iPad mini isn't the end of the line for new and different iDevice form factors.

 

This should really go without saying and yet, when I suggest that Apple will need to continue to create new iDevice size options to keep up with the competitive nature of the game (see HERE for my previous post on the topic), the backlash and nay saying can be intense. However, to remain relevant I feel Apple must continue to do as they have done and diversify their line to remain a top player in a world where the lines between tablet, phone and even PC continue to blur more and more with each passing year.
