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.
Among things like the iMovie for iPad and a little thing called the iPad 2, Apple today announced the upcoming availability of GarageBand for iPad, and the little musical powerhouse has never looked sweeter. If you’ve ever used one of the piano iPad apps, you’ll understand immediately why this is something to get excited about. And it won’t just let you play piano, either; you can strum a guitar, play the bass, or bang on the drums. Since it won’t hit the app store until March 11, we don’t yet have a hands-on review of it, but what we do have an idea of what it is, and why it will be awesome.
We love the convenience of taking high-quality photos and video on the go with an iPhone 4 or fourth-generation iPod touch -- but unfortunately, Apple still hasn’t provided a way to wirelessly sync this media back to our computers, or even a way to back up precious photos in the cloud so you don’t have to import them so frequently. Thanks to the universal CameraSync app from Homegrown Software Ltd., this is now as easy as simply opening the app and letting it do its thing.
Imagine a mashup of podcasting, Twitter, and YouTube for audio files, and you’ll have an idea of what SoundCloud is all about. It’s a social media service that lets you share original music, rambling diatribes, drunken party chatter, and other sound recordings with eavesdroppers across the globe. It’s a cool idea, but SoundCloud’s desktop Mac application lets users in on only half the fun.
If you know and love the official Twitter client for iOS, you’ll be right at home in Twitter for OS X. It’s the same slick application, right down to a striking fresh-from-the-iPad appearance, but now sporting a host of Mac-specific tweeting tricks. Unfortunately, it’s still no replacement for twitter.com when it comes to managing your account.
Rumors and reports, hype and excitement, two sides to two different coins, but ones always in evidence when it comes to new Apple products and refreshes of the old. As we get closer and closer to the usually scheduled release announcements, both coins get hot hot hot on both sides and all around. While this stuff can take over the news, there's still plenty going on out there, just in case, among all the noise, you missed it.
By way of TechCrunch, security services company Lookout has released the results of a study about the App Store compared to the Android Market (in the U.S.). While the Android store is growing much faster than the App Store -- 127% since August 2010 to Apple's 44% -- Apple still has an upper-hand in the number of apps that will take a year for Android to match, assuming current growth-rates continue.
In this very special edition of GameTime we explore the possibility that the larger a protagonist's head is, the less intelligence required to enjoy the game. Now don't get us wrong, all the games we played for this very special edition of GameTime™ are awesome, but they aren't what you'd call "puzzlers" or "thinkin' games."
Sometimes, the best entertainment comes at the expense of a friend -- all in good fun, of course -- and these four apps will help you accomplish that. Trick your friends with a couple of these mischievous apps, but don’t dish it out unless you can take it back in return!
