If you’re still looking for the perfect note-taking app for the iPad, your search may just have ended. The creators of the popular Comic Zeal Comic Reader have just released ThinkBook, an “organizational marvel” for notebooks and outlines.
This week, Amazon unveiled its new cloud-based storage solution, which gives everyone 5 GB of online storage for whatever you might need to store. The kicker to Amazon's largess? Any MP3s you have in your space can be streamed anywhere you are, and if you buy an MP3 album from Amazon, they up your storage to 20 GB. The kicker to the kicker? It's for the web and Android; there's no iOS app.
In light of this, we thought we'd take a look at some of the alternatives to this nice new cloud service.
Why should your iPad have all the fun? That’s what developer Readdle is asking this week as the company rolls out PDF Expert 2.0, a major new version of their iPhone edition which brings feature parity with the iPad edition, including text highlighting, form filling and much more.
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.
Being able to take photos with your iPhone on the go is great. Getting them off of your iPhone? Not so much. For many of us, our busy lives preclude the ability to sync our iOS devices on a regular basis, leaving all of the images we take on the go unprotected by the benefit of a backup. As such, everyone using an iPhone is always at risk of losing their precious photographic memories. Unacceptable! Today, we'll show you how you can easily back every photo you take with your iPhone, thanks to an ingenious iOS application and our friends at Dropbox.
Well, by now all our regular readers should have nursed their hangovers into sweet regular living, cleaned up their homes, made bail, and managed to find their ways home from three states over where they awoke the next morning. We don't blame you. Most everyone we know was all too ready to say sayonara to 2010, and no matter what the Mayans say, it's full speed ahead 2011. So pour yourself some coffee and let us take you back in time to the last week of the year, the one you've oh so blessedly blotted from your memories, because after this New Year's Eve, this really was a true case of In Case You Missed It.
It used to be that being asked to bring some tunes to your buddy's New Years Eve party meant sticking a few CDs and cassettes into a bag before heading out the door. Nowadays, with so many people turning to the internet to download their music, you might consider burning a few discs to take to the party with you (lame), or even bringing along an iPod or iPad loaded up with your whole collection. While both will get the job done, neither are perfect solutions. For starters, Burning CDs means having to keep blank physical discs on hand, and unless you plan on bringing a car load of discs, the selection of music you'll be able to bring with you is going to be pretty limited. As for bringing an iOS device to a party? Well, we'd like to take this time to remind you that Apple's warranty programs don't cover liquid damages. Fortunately, there's a quick, easy--and most importantly, free--method for bringing a good chunk of your iTunes library with you. It involves our good friends at Dropbox, and just a few minutes of your time.
Small business owners and freelancers can rejoice -- as promised, the folks at Acclivity LLC have released their free AccountEdge Mobile app for the iPad, a mobile companion to their Mac and Windows AccountEdge 2011 desktop application which now syncs key data via Dropbox.
In computer years, it seems like Dropbox has been around forever -- that is, until you realize that it has only just this week finally landed at version 1.0, a pretty big milestone for the cloud storage service that has brought the Mac and Windows together with mobile devices at long last.
