360 Panorama ($.99) http://occipital.com/360/app 

Capturing panoramas are now easier than ever! Just open the app, tap the screen and pan your phone in any direction. Your panorama gets stitched together as you go. When you're done, you can instantly save your panorama or share via email, Twitter, or Facebook. 

In real estate, we used to pay hundreds of dollars to have this done for virtual tours and we would have to wait days to get it back. Now it can be done and on a website before we leave the house.



Steve Jobs Day in California

Gov. Brown has declared today Sunday October 16 Steve Jobs day in California.

In honor, I found this video created on a Macintosh, with only Macintosh sounds and Steve's voice.

 

 



I Can't Help It, I Still Miss My Newton

As much as I love my iPad and iPhone, I missed being able to simply write on my iDevice and have it magically turned into typed text.
With the rollout of Siri, we will can now just talk to our iPhone and have it type text....something I might add was temporarily available back in 1997 on my Newton. Yes that's right, Dragon Software, the brains behind Siri, made voice recognition software for Newton, but was quickly squashed by Apple, for some reason. But I digress....



GPS Navigation App for Free

image

I just discovered a free GPS app for my iPhone called Waze. Free is usually an indicator of a light version of a full app. Not here. I have played around with and paid for some full featured navigation apps and have not been terribly impressed. I actually just drove from NYC with my brother, to Greensboro NC. We had two iPad, two iPhones and a built in GPS in my brothers vehicle. It was a Mo, Larry, Curly moment. We stopped multiple times by the side of the road to determine why all the devices were giving us different info, and actually got lost once. I am just glad my wife wasn't in the car or I would still be hearing about it. Anyway, I digress.

How About an iPhone For $9?

I have a confession to make. I have never owned an iPhone. There I've said it.



Awesome Note Upgraded and it is still that.....Awesome!

image

Awesome Note by Bridworks ($4.99) has been around for a while filling the need for a place to store and categorize notes. Visually it is amazing and functionally it is inspiring. It uses a filing system that makes sense and is easy to understand from the start. There are a real variety of templates so notes don't look boring, but don't worry you can still keep it bland and boring if you like.



Access Your iPhoto Library on Your iPad From Anywhere

image

I can't tell you how many times I have been at work and wanted to get a photo I had saved on my iMac at home. How I have handled it until now is through LogMein. I love the app and how it lets me access my desktop from away, but here is a free option that will let you scoop photos from your desktop/laptop iPhoto library and put them right onto your iPad. The app is called Cinq. The app is free and all you need to do is register with them, download a free app to your desktop/laptop and be on wifi. What happens then is almost magical. Simply open the Cinq app on your iPad, log into your account and before you can say holy toledo, you will be looking at your iPhoto library.
