We are almost to the end of another hurricane season and so far, it hasn't been all that terrible. Full disclosure here, I am writing this from Vermont and hurricane season is never terrible here, but I still watch with great interest.
Imagine this.....You are at a meeting or seminar, and you are distracted by the guy next to you who is talking with the lady next to him. You have missed some pivotal point that was being made because you were listening to the blah, blah next to you....
what the speaker was saying is gone....
Now imagine this.... not only do you have the notes you were taking, but you also have a recording of what was being said at that very moment, and all you have to do is tap on your notes and you can hear what was being said that you missed.
vs. This comparison between my beloved Newton and my new best friend iPad, has been out for a while, but I never get tired of watching them side by side.
In my life as a real estate agent, I am out on the road alot. I am always looking for a nice place to stop, work, drink coffee, and get a free wifi hookup. In the past couple of years, they have become more and more available, and now I can have a database of the most current ones right on my iPod Touch thanks to jWire.
ToDo (by Appigo, $4.99) has become one of my most used apps for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, , I have a tendency to forget things. Second, my todo's are synced to my iPad, iPod Touch and desktop. ToDo uses a web based task organizer called ToodleDo to complete this magic.
This contacts manager is an app that will stay for ever on your iPhone once you try it. After you open it up you will see that the developer was thinking about the you and what you'd want to do.
Within each contact you can e-mail or text with one tap....and it will keep a history of them within that contact. So if you want to know, or document, when you sent a text, e-mail or phone call to a particular person, all you have to do is pull them up and look under the History tab.
I love Mac magazines! It feels like Christmas every time one arrives in the mail. I have been a subscriber to iPhone Life since the beginning, and MacWorld and MacLife for well over 10 years. I still have MacAddict cd's dating back to 2003. Remember when all the magazines included cd's with each issue?
A day or so ago I wrote a post about AppShopper and how you can scoop up some great apps for discounts. Well I came across this one today and felt it was such a good deal I had to let people know about it. It has been selling for $39.99 in the iTunes store and is free for a limited time.

If you're like me you are constantly checking to see what's new in the iPhone/iPad app world. I love it when new apps come out that help me enjoy my devices more.....and do things more efficiently. There are two apps that make my searching much easier. One is Appshopper which keeps an updated list of new apps. You can search by iPhone or iPad, review price history, look for only free apps and a whole lot more. You can add apps to a wish list so at any point you can see if they have dropped in price. But if you are really looking for a way to catch a deal as soon as it happens Appsniper is for you. This is not a universal app but still works on the iPad.
