Need your iPad to pull a little more weight? Get a case that helps accommodate. I just made a rhyme! Seriously, that wasn't planned.
This week, I took a look at iPad cases that tack on that one additional function you really need from your trusty tablet device. Read on for my review of the Handstand iPad holder, Belkin's Bluetooth Keyboard Folio, the ZooGue iPad Binder frame, and iHome's iPad folio with built-in speakers.
Most apps about apps are obsessed with freebies. Rather than cater to an obsessive's notion of thrift, Discovr Apps takes a more organic approach to broadening your handheld horizons. It won't tell you what's on sale, what's brand new, or what became of the missing e in its own title. Nor will it examine past purchases and fashion a list of tailored recommendations. What it does do, and with elegant simplicity, is use any application as the starting point for an elaborate spider web of interrelated App Store offerings.
It's no secret that Apple products go hand-in-hand with education. In fact, for many Generation Xers, an Apple was the first computer ever seen in their classroom (shout out to the IIe!). With regular discounts for teachers and students, Apple products are the perfect back to school gift. And once you get back to school, time to hit the books and keep up that GPA. And here's some apps to help you do just that.
It's time for another whirlwind, around-the-world tour of Apple's latest lawsuits, this time with developments occurring on three different continents. In Europe, Samsung and Apple are dueling it out in Germany, and Down Under a judge tells Apple to cough up payment documents to prove Samsung's really a threat. We'll also discuss Apple's latest legal troubles in Asia, where the company sent a threatening letter to a Chinese food company to stop its trademark infringement.
Adobe announced its next iOS app today at Photoshop World, called Adobe Carousel. This cross-platform app allows users to access their whole photo libraries on an iPad, iPhone, and Mac, make edits that sync automatically, and share those photos with family and friends. We got a demo of the new app-slash-cloud service last week, with plenty of screenshots inside.
Apple is quickly moving toward the release of iOS 5 this fall, and one of the major new features revealed at WWDC back in June was Newsstand, the company’s solution for organizing subscription content on your device -- and now, digital publishers can prepare for the feature with support from Adobe Digital Publishing Suite.
As the calendar moves from summer to fall, many of our thoughts turn to OfficeMax and their free, now-legendary ElfYourself service -- we’ve all been sent one (or more!) by a friend or family member, right? Now the creators of that clever holiday fun have turned their focus to the App Store with a free iPad only app called JibJab Jr. Books.
As the world waits to see what Apple will offer with the next iPhone, rumors continue to build about another highly anticipated device: The Amazon tablet. Built around Google’s Android, many believe Amazon will be the first successful challenge to the iPad thanks to its famous brand and millions of account holders.
