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.



Note Goal Pro – App Review

image

Learning the piano has never been easy, but with app introductions such as Note Goal Pro; it makes learning the piano a lot more fun!  This app is able to teach about note placement, how to read music, and the definition of each note per key.  It’s very similar to taking piano lessons in your very own home, but without a piano; and seems to be just as efficient.  The only that is needed after you’ve mastered this app is an actual piano to practice with. 



EA Shift 2 Unleashed FREE TODAY!

image

Man the Apps store is like going down the rabbit hole. Every time I open iTunes or go there on the iPad/Pod, I end up downloading 3 or 4 apps and ebooks I didn't know I needed (most freebies). It can trigger more impulse-shopping than a trip to Staples or Home Depot. Anyway, today EA has SHIFT 2 Unleashed up there for free, and I found that out using another freebie app called AppsCube Explorer (3-D app explorer which is cool all by itself), which I'll swing back and post up more info on in my next "What I Played" edition.



FlamingIgloo iPhone App Review

image

The Flaming Igloo game is a fairly enjoyable yet challenging game.  The basic premise is you have to put out fires on your igloo by throwing snow balls at it.  If the fire goes on to long you’ll have to throw a large piece of ice at the igloo to fix it.  The makers of this game did a good job with the physics of the game making it challenging to throw the ice or snow at the right spot on the igloo.  There are many levels which get more challenging as you go and add in additional options.

What I played - Gobble edition!

image

Welcome to the Thanksgiving edition of my somewhat-weekly column featuring the games, apps or even gadgets I played with during the week. It's not always strictly iOS related, as last week (or was it the week before?) I reviewed the HP TouchPad, though a couple of the apps mentioned also have iOS versions. This week, it's all iPhone/iPod/iPad and all free, so if you want to get some game on this turkey day weekend, it won't cost you a cent. Bowmaster Lite brings you the thrill of the early pilgrims, who couldn't go to the supermarket to bag a turkey. Chromian Wars is a new war strategy sim game with AR features. My fav of the bunch has to be Falling Stars--quickly make funky tones/beats with this addictive and free music maker game.
