SugarSync Review - Flexible Cloud storage for everything!

image

SugarSync is a full-featured cloud backup and file syncing service (reviewed previously in our magazine by Doug Goldring here), but you can also create and edit documents on-line, play music from your synced collection, and transfer photos via iPad or other iOS device. There are clients for iOS, Android and several other mobile OS flavors, so you can sync from just about anywhere. I was specifically interested in the ability to write articles and save pictures and research to a consolidated folder I could later access on my computer. Currently, I use Evernote for the sometimes extensive article content I compile (mostly photo/text/weblink data), but it's somewhat aggravating to reformat everything for our blog editor later, so recently have taken to simply editing blog posts in raw HTML on our site (or in Notes), which is also a pain. SugarSync didn't bring my content together exactly the way I wanted, but it is a great file sync and backup product...



PDF Connoisseur for iPad Review

image

Anyone looking for an app to help expand their iPad's PDF capabilities will really not need to look any further than the PDF connoisseur.  So far this app has done everything I could have ever asked it to do and much more.  There are dozens of PDF apps on the market today but none can give you the full functionality like this one can. 



Review: Egg Punch by Pixel Juice

image

So do you like physics puzzle games where you roll an object around a level trying to gather items and ultimately make it to a particular spot like a hole or something of that nature?  I do too.  As such, I had really high hopes for Egg Punch.  At first the game didn’t disappoint, either.  Sadly, it didn’t take too long before the levels became overly difficult for how little I had progressed in the game.  Add to that a lack of explanation for how the scoring actually works and a claim that the game can be completed without in-app purchases that I’m beginning to question, and Egg Punch has lost any spark that it started out with.



GoCal for Google Calendar HD Review

The updated GoCal for Google calendar app is easily the best time management and productivity app available for people who already use the Google calendar feature.  This app syncs quickly and seamlessly with your calendar and provides you with a lot of great new features which you will find very useful. 



NoteLedge iPad App Review

image

NoteLedge is an app that allows you to write notes, sketch, and keep a journal and so much more. I mean really... a lot more. This application is packed with so many features, it will make you head spin and at $2.99 US, this app is a steal!

The application is by the guys that developed Animation Desk, PDF Reader and PDF Connoisseur which quite recently got a lot of attention due to, well... their attention to detail. The applications are very well made and the graphics are outstanding. Enough praise up front, let me tell you more about the app.

Musical Puzzle HD for iPad

image

Musical puzzle HD is, from what I have seen, a unique app for the iPad which combines the addictive fun of a jigsaw puzzle with classic songs.  Rather than moving pieces around to make a picture you have to touch the pieces to hear them play a sound which is just a second or two long.  You then place the pieces in order to make the full song.  This addicting game has many song options so you won’t get repeats and in my case I was very familiar with nearly every tune which was played.

Real Pinball HD Vampire Review

image


Real Pinball HD Vampire is an immersive pinball experience for iPad, and for a limited time only 99 cents (found it free using AppCube Explorer). I have some complaints about the action of the table--like flippers adjusted to make aiming harder--complaints one might make of a real pinball table. The fact that this is the kind of gripe I have about it, shows just how good the simulation of a real pinball experience RP HD has achieved...



Best iPad Apps for Photo/Video

image

Many IOS users will be taking more photographs this holiday season. I thought I would share some of the better IOS applications in the App Store for taking and editing photos. Pro Camera is one of my favorite alternative applications for taking the place of the native camera app on any idevice. Pro camera has many available options and settings for users. My favorite feature of Pro camera is the ability to zoom. Once you have the subject in the picture you can zoom in or out depending on what it needs to get the better picture. This is a great asset to any camera application and photographer.
