MyShelf Review - Note syncing bliss without the privacy issues!

image

I really gave Evernote a huge try. Pumped loads of web info, article research, photos and screenshots in there.  Even had my camera SD card configured to post images to my account (check out my review here on how to do this). The love affair ended really not because of any one thing, but a lot of nuisances. General sluggishness and sync issues that crept in. Bigger problems like somehow losing extensive posts or article content I had spent hours crafting, and more obnoxious things like crashing and hanging up. If you looking for an app that can give you simple note/interest gathering capability with little in the way of distractions, you might want to try out MyShelf as an alternative. It won't knock EN off it's lofty perch, but it does let you share note and interest data across your devices.



HotDoc for iPad

image

The iPad is one of the most powerful and versatile tablets available on the market today.  It does, however, have a few important things that are lacking.  One of them is the file management system that it uses.  There is no good and easy way to manage your office and other files, until now.  HotDoc was developed to have a focus on the ergonomic and aesthetic user interface of the iPad and put it to use in managing all your files.



Gibbets 2 for iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch

image

Gibbits 2 is an innovative arcade puzzle game where you have to help someone who is hanging from a hangman’s rope.  While this may sound quite simple and straight forward, it is actually a bit more complex than that.  To free the hanging man you need to carefully aim your bow and arrow to cut the rope.  Of course, you have to be extra careful not to accidently hit the man causing him further injury, and if you take too long he will die from suffocation. 



Browse and download anything to iPhone with Download Expert!

image

While reviewing Download Expert, I noted a rather annoying bug (at least for an English-reading person like myself). The app's browser was returning search queries in Cyrillic script, due to redirection to Google's .ua domain. I was mad, because I really wanted to review this ingenuous universal file downloading app, with it's cool 3-D cube browser! I asked the devs to fix it, after which I would try it again when it was available (quick tip--grab previously installed apps from iCloud), and not only did the folks at Synaptic Wave deliver, they dropped the price to $1.99! So I'll be posting up a full review later, but wanted to get the news out that the app is fixed, and very reasonably priced--also now with Dropbox support. If you want to download videos, images, files of all kinds to your iOS device, this is the app you need... Grab it at the link above! YouTube vid follows the break...



Use Streamweaver to effortlessly stitch together camera angles!

You and your friends are at the game, and a fly ball sails up over your section. You and 2 of your buddies capture hilarious clips of another friend dashing and clawing his way through the crowd to the abandoned level above to retrieve the trophy. After the game, you compare the individual videos thinking how cool it would be to be able to stitch together the different angles side-by-side into one super funny production. Now you can, and it's easy and free, using Streamweaver... Full PR about this excellent startup effort follows.



The Iron Mouse App Review

image

There are some pretty fantastic games available for the iPhone and the iPad, each with its own set of challenges, its own creativity, and its own unique design. One that really stood though was called The Iron Mouse. The gameplay was clever, the scenery and design were colorful, and it is always a fun play. Some games are only fun and interesting for the first few levels, but then they get boring as you get used to the gameplay. The Iron Mouse however, is super addictive and will leave you struggling to put down your device. It shares some of the best qualities of today’s most popular games, but rest assured it remains an entirely unique game.

Doc Editing Shootout - CloudOn versus Documents Free!!

image

Cloud document services are becoming the defacto standard for creating and editing documents. The advent and rise of iPad is encroaching heavily into computing realms that were previously a firm domain of the PC. Gone are the days when you wrung your hands over a Word file marooned on your home computer. In this review, I compare two popular iPad cloud editors; one free and one free-with-ads. CloudOn is an excellent and completely free app that is as good as any editing suite I have used, being MS Office based. Documents Free is a capable editing alternative with fewer features. Both of these apps will allow you to connect to popular cloud storage services, access and upload your important docs. Who will be the last editor standing?... Read on to find out!



Phoenix Bird App Review

image

This app ushers in an entirely new standard for gaming apps in the future. Designed for the iPad and iPhone in particular, Phoenix Bird is a 3D masterpiece. It is unlike any app I have seen to date, and I was in love the minute I touched the icon. It has an incredibly addictive gameplay coupled with an incredible view of the world. Anytime you find yourself waiting in a waiting room or have some time to kill on the bus, playing this new game will take you on a beautifully creative and colorful adventure that will make time fly. It is absolutely incredible what developer Imagination Apps has done with such a simple concept.
