Rube Goldberg App Is an Elegantly Complex Invention!


I've been a fan of Rube Goldberg's drawings of overly complicated inventions since I first saw one. Now, through the magic of the iPad and Rube Works ($2.99), you can recreate some of his inventions, using an elegant, sophisticated interface.

If you're not familiar with Rube Goldberg, you owe it to yourself to do a Google search. Basically, he takes simple tasks, like an alarm to wake you up, and combines a plethora of obscure devices and even animals to accomplish the task! Rube Goldberg machines are far more complex than they need to be, and that's the point.

Skilled Artist Plus Procreate iPad App Equal Best Portrait Ever


How does a picture of actor Morgan Freeman wind up featured here on iPhone Life? Well, while he is undoubtedly a respected and immensely gifted performer, the reason you see his face here is because this image was created with only fingertips, talent, an iPad, and an amazing app called Procreate ($5.99).

Invented by the music professionals of Donnerblech GmbH, it is the first video sound app of its kind.

Cologne, November 2013. We all know and love them – those typical sounds in TV sitcom classics: hearty laughter, compassionate “ohhs” and thunderous applause. They are just as much a part of it as the firework of gags.

Top 11 Apps Optimized for A7 and M7


The iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and new iPad Mini are now all packing the famous A7 microprocessor. This magnificent beast of engineering brilliance not only outperforms its predecessors in speed and battery life, it is also the first mobile 64-bit “system-on-a-chip” designed for mobile computing. What this means for fellow Candy Crush addicts (we have a Google Hangout every Sunday night) is the main CPU, graphics, and motion processor all sit together in a small cubical in the principal’s office and work together. Instead of delving deep into technical specifications of version numbers, register counts, cluster configurations and the like, let us assume the A7 is “the complete package,” doing everything a savvy person needs for updating Twitter or Facebook at a red light about the genius in front of you painting their toenails on their dashboard instead of updating Twitter or Facebook.
