Keynote may be the least-essential app in the iWork suite -- after all, most of us don’t give presentations at sold-out convention centers -- but we have to admit it’s a perfect fit for the iPad. More than Numbers and even Pages, the iPad’s wide, Multi-Touch screen naturally lends itself to Keynote’s guides, gestures, and general interface.
But with such creative possibilities at your fingertips, Keynote’s built-in themes are surprisingly lacking. None of them are all that inspiring, and some are borderline insulting. White? Black? Really? Should those even count?
Of course, you could spend hours designing your own templates with subtle design flourishes, fonts, charts, shadows, and textures. Or you could let Templates for Keynote Pro do it for you.

Can’t get enough of Cut the Rope and that loveable little monster Om Nom? Developer ZeptoLab has just released the latest chapter in the saga to the App Store, available in both an HD version for the iPad as well as a small-screen edition for the iPhone/iPod touch.
Demand for the iPad 2 is just now beginning to stabilize and already we're clamoring about the next iPad 3. Even iPhone 5 rumors are out of control, and that's no thanks to the companies that make the components for these devices, who are already working several models ahead of us and feeling the heat to keep the wow factor high with each new launch.
According to a new report, display makers are stuggling to keep up with the industry's appetite for innovation.
Steve Uy established himself well in the comic book industry over the last decade, illustrating covers for Marvel's Uncanny X-Men and Iceman, along with DC's JSA Classified and other books, as well as providing full artwork for several issues of Marvel's Avengers: The Initiative.

There's an old saw that says you should never hold a garage sale on Memorial Day or Labor Day weekend. There's a new one that says watch out for your kidneys if you buy anything on Craigslist. That last one's really just an urban legend, but Craigslist has made our garage sale shopping and selling less dependent on calendars, except there's no mobile version of their site and we find the design makes our head hurt. If only there were an app that could make Craigslist a joy, we'd buy that for a dollar.
