Appy Geek gets update!

image

One of my fav news reader apps (see our Appy Geek review here) got an update last week. The only thing that jumped out at me on iPad was additional footer ads that now appear (which seemed to disappear by changing screen orientation). Apparently, there are more features under the hood now for iPhone/iPod touch. Things like a new "Word Cloud" feature that I still don't quite understand, but maybe the added PR release below will help explain better than I can...



APPY Geek - Now available for iPad!

One of my personal all-time favorite news reader apps has finally made it to iPad, and I am a little late in getting the word out (sorry, APPY Geek). It is, in my opinion, a great (and free) news reader sporting a dock-like interface, a slick tag browser, and decent library of news sources! I use it when I can on my wife's TouchPad, and now (finally) can use it on my iPad regularly. You looking to stay updated on the latest tech news, then this is a pretty darn good way to do it, in my opinion!



What I played - Gun Bros on HP webOS!

This will definitely be a different kind of "What I played this week" post. The HP TouchPad tablet might be remembered--if remembered at all--in the annals of gadget ignominy. Just another iPad contender that hardly made it to the ring, before HP decided to pull the plug. I won't be the first or last to say that it's a shame. The product has some rough edges to be sure, but serious potential as well. I played several decent apps on it this week that I felt deserved (along with the device itself) at least a minor review (2 recommendations mentioned here--free Gun Bros and Appy Geek have iOS equivalent in the App store). Though it isn't strictly iPhoneLife material, this review might interest the gadget nut curious how the TouchPad stacks up to our beloved iPad. Actually pretty well...
