This week you are in for a treat, boy are you ever. This week we have some App Store essentials that went on sale. We're talking apps that are must-haves. So if you've been putting off making your App Life that much better, simpler, cooler, then this is the week for you to get out your wallet.
I need to play my videos using codecs not recognized by default on the iPad. Are there any more alternative video players for the iPad that will oblige? My friend uses an app called VLC Player on his iPad, but it’s no longer in the App Store.
In the April issue’s Ask column, you recommended “CineXPlayer for iPad ($1.99) or the universal GoodPlayer ($2.99)” for watching AVI videos without needing to convert them first. But you left out the free VLC Player application! Its capabilities appear to be equivalent, but it doesn’t require any financial commitment.
I went on vacation and took a whole bunch of videos with my digital camera. They show up in iPhoto and I can publish them to Facebook and MobileMe, but I can’t get these videos to transfer onto my iPhone or iPad.
