ReaddleDocs gives your phone a robust Documents folder that lets you do everything you need to do with important files, including edit and save, rename, move, copy, archive, mail and store -- and it supports everything from PDF to image files and web pages, as well as all your word processing documents.
For most of us, Apple’s Calendar app does a perfectly fine job of keeping our important dates in order. But those of you looking for a little extra oomph from your digital day planner might want to take a look at Calevents. Unlike the 17,000 other calendar apps overflowing the App Store, Calevents works as a sort of standalone plugin for Calendar, adding functionality without upsetting Apple’s traditional user experience.
Apple's iPad is certainly capable of replacing every notebook you'll ever need, but let's be serious -- nothing about Apple's Notes app is going to entice any fence-sitters to ditch their trusty pen and paper. Ginger Labs' Notability, however, just might.
Storyist is a tool to write novels or screenplays—fiction is its strength. The familiar screen layout includes a project manager that serves as the collection point for the manuscript, plot, characters, settings, and other information. However, we found adding new items to the project unnecessarily complicated. Users can set the modal main view to display the text editor, outline, or storyboard, and a pop-up inspector offers the necessary choices to style text.
Compressed data has been the norm in computers forever. Crunching down files without losing fidelity and being able to decompress them later in perfect condition? Great idea. And with data caps being placed on mobile users, compressed files can only grow in importance. But RAR, ZIP, TAR, 7Z, GZIP? It's an alphabet soup awaiting you out there. You don't want to buy five different apps to handle every format, and Apple hasn’t gone native on this. So what are your options?
How many times have you pulled into your driveway and realized you meant to stop for milk or pop by the dry cleaners? You could've saved yourself all those special trips if you had Task Ave chirp reminders whenever you cruise by particular places.
Dang! You needed to be somewhere -- 15 minutes ago! You need reminders on your iPhone, but you don't want some app chock full of complicated commands. That's more trouble than it's worth. Pop Culture Software's Nag Alarm succeeds with simplicity.
We've seen what Apple could dish up when it came to word processing, and we've seen the competitors bring occasionally impressive functionality to this realm. We've even seen word processing on the iPhone, which, while not glamorous or particularly easy, is still nice. Spreadsheets were likewise a solid contender for data crunching even if there were some major shortcomings in the apps which sought to dethrone Numbers from its rightful place.
The third and final installment is at last at hand. Presentations, the scourge of corporate meetings.
Spreadsheets aren't anyone's idea of sexy. Here's a cell, it adds up other cells; here's a cell, it averages other cells. And so on. In fact, this has long been the underappreciated workhorse in any office suite, but spreadsheets can pack loads of functionality into those little cells.
Just like Word, Microsoft's Excel has long dominated this realm. Apple has a worthy competitor in Numbers, but how does mobile spreadsheet creation stack up? Which mobile software gives you the spreadsheet power you've always wanted? Let's do the math.
As much as we love the Mac’s graphical menus-and-windows interface, taking repeated trips to the menu bar to execute commands is slow and cumbersome. In order to hone your Mac skills to ninja level, you need to get good with the keyboard. But remembering keyboard shortcuts for every menu command in all of your apps is asking a lot. Binary Bakery Software’s solution is the cleverly designed MenuPop, which instantly pops up the active application’s complete menus wherever your mouse cursor is located.
