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.

Showyou -- free video aggregator app wins top award from Apple

image

I recently finished an article for the next issue of iPhone Life (on newsstands in February) about video aggregator apps. These are a lot of fun, in that they collect videos from your social networks and other favorite news or web sources and present them in a Flipboard-like fashion. I've written about Plizy in the past, and in my article I also highlighted Showyou. These two are my favorites, and both are free.



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. 



More evidence for iPad 3 in March

DigiTimes can always be relied upon for rumors, though they have a mixed record regarding whether those rumors end up being true. Their sources of information are Apple's suppliers in Asia. And those sources are now saying that we can except the iPad 3 around March or so. The component manufacturers say that they're preparing to reduce production of iPad 2 components and are now delivering components for the iPad 3.



Snow Fight FREE Wintertime fun!

Flipboard is one of the most popular apps for the iPad. And it was so heavily downloaded when it was released earlier this week for the iPhone that the added traffic brought down Flipboard's servers. Now Google has jumped into this popular space — apps that aggregate your social media content, news, and other web content into a personally tailored, very attractive, magazine-like format. Google Currents (free) is available as a universal app for both the iPhone and iPad.

The iPad 2 is one of the sleekest and thinnest tablets on the market. Many iPad 2 users may choose not to add a case for protection due to adding weight or bulkiness to the iPad.

Everything iPad - Apps, Accessories, Reviews, Wallpapers etc | iPhone Life Magazine

What's bigger than an iPhone, smaller than a MacBook, and the most anticipated Apple product since the original iPhone? On January 27, at a special invitation only event at the San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Steve Jobs announced Apple's new "magical, revolutionary product" -- the iPad. Meant to fill the gap between the laptop and phone, Jobs said it was "way better" than either. Let's take a look at it.

Thin, lightweight, and powerful

The iPad shares many hardware features with the iPhone, including an accelerometer, an orientation sensor to switch from portrait to landscape mode, solid-state memory, and the same 30-pin doc connector. Connectivity is also virtually the same, with wireless 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 EDR included on all models.

iPad runs iPhone apps!

The iPad will run a version of iPhone OS, and the new device can run virtually any app developed for the iPhone or iPod touch. Aps developed for the iPhone can run on the iPad in native resolution but is large enough to touch type on.

The larger screen not only makes familiar iPhone apps like Calendar, Mail, and Safari look stunning, it also provides screen real estate for more complex elements in the UI. For example, Calendar display a split-sreen view that describes the day's appointments on the left and shows you a color map of used time slots on the right. The split-screen view in Contacts displays you contacts list on the left and the full information for the contact you've selected on the right.

An ebook reader and more

Although not build into the iPad, Apple will offer a free app called iBooks, which will allow you to download and read books from it's new virtual bookstore. The new iBooks store will be accessed from and as easy to use as iTunes.

The ultimate media device?

The iPad is not the world's first tablet PC or the first eBook reader. Toshiba, Lenovo, Acer, and others sell Windows-based tablets, and Amazon has had considerable success with it's Kindle. But Apple thinks the iPad will reinvent the category by offering a vastly superior multi-touch interface an easy access to a wide-variety of apps and media via iTunes. Aple hopes to make the iPad the ultimate media device by leveraging it's existing assets which include over 100 million paying iTunes customers, established relationships with music and video content providers, and over 100,000 iPhone OS app developers.
