Pocket Manager App is Free....for now

image

I have written about apps by this developer before. Intersog writes interactive educational apps for the business community. They are very extensive and well worth the $20 normal price. There are a couple of their apps available for free. I am not sure for how long they will remain free so hurry.



Another Note Taking Contender

image

There is another contender in the note taking category, GhostWriter Notes($3.99) by MajorSpot. At first glance this app appears to be very basic, and in some respects it is.



The iPad 3G Alternative

image

The iPad 2 is due to arrive any time now.

My first generation wifi-only iPad has been nothing short of amazing. I can't remember what life was like before it came into my life. The one regret I have had is that there wasn't a 3G model out when I bought mine. (early adopter's syndrome).



Pocket Informant on Sale!

image

Pocket Informant has been written about a number of times here and is probably my most used app. It's normally $14.99 for the iPad version and is now on sale during Macworld Expo for $6.99. It is also available at a discounted price of $4.99 for iPhone and iPod Touch too.



Get Back in Shape in 2011

image

Well, I am one of those that is taking on their exercise and diet regimen in the new year. It's almost a cliche, I know. Probably the most popular of New Year's resolutions. That said, I am still taking it on. Knowing I need help, I have enlisted friends to hold me accountable, gone public with a blog and I bought Fitness HD for my iPad ($3.99).



PhatPad Discounted!

image

I recently wrote a post about PhatPad and how it left me starry eyed for my Newton and it's handwriting recognition. Well I see now that they have cut their price in half for this weekend. So if you are quick on your feet, you can download it for $2.99 instead of $4.99. Hurry, bargains aren't forever.



iPhone on Verizon.....I Know, Yea Right.

Verizon...iPhone....iPhone....Verizon. It's what we have been hearing since the iPhone was released on AT&T.
....only thing is, it really does look like it's going to happen sometime soon.

The wifi only iPad has recently started selling in Verizon stores which seems odd because it's not a phone and Verizon only sells phones, then AT&T was voted the worst carrier by Consumer Reports.

I have been hearing rumors from people who seem to have direct lines to the Cupertino well, that point to a press release early January finally saying it's so.



The Newton's Back.....Well,Sort Of.

My heart went a'racing when I saw PhatWare release PhatPad ($4.99) for the iPad. The video shows how you can write on your iPad and have it recognize and transpose it into typed text.....just like my beloved Newton did.



Every Day I Am Amazed!

image

i have been accused of being easily impressed when it comes to apps on my iPad. Well today Quest Visual released a translation app for the iPhone that caused my jaw to drop. It is called Word Lens and it's free with demos included.  Each language is $10, on sale for $5 until Dec. 31 by in app purchase.

If you can watch this video and not be totally and completely blown away, then I'll shut up. But don't plan on that happening.
