Tonight, I'm going to the movies. I'm going to go see 50/50 and I'm hoping that I get a few laughs out of it (and hey, maybe even shed a few tears considering the subject matter). And maybe you feel like going to the movies tonight with a friend or a significant other, or plopping yourself down on the couch with the cat to a rental. Whether you're into mainstream movies, B-movies, Bollywood, or Disney flicks, here's a few apps to help you catch the best of them.
Going somewhere neat this weekend? Or are you one of those people who seized the off season opportunity and purchased plane tickets for a vacation in the fall? You should use these free apps to check in to the places you're going and find new places to discover.
As the fall television season gears up here in the U.S., networks are aiming to make it a more portable one by releasing fresh new iPad apps capable of streaming full episodes right to a tablet -- but unfortunately, some of them won’t do you much good unless you subscribe to the channel in the first place.
It's September, the kids are back in school, the NFL is back on the air (GO PACKERS!), and since it's Friday we have another roundup of discounted iPhone and iPad apps for you -- including a free app for iPhone and iPad that can teach you all kinds of Man vs. Wild trickery. Happy Friday!
We all use our iOS devices for a little more than keeping in contact with friends and surfing the web. Photo editing is one feature that has become ubiquitous among iPad and iPhone users. In today's Free App Friday, here are three apps for iOS that let you edit your mobile photos with flair. Plus, a Google Chrome app that enables you to transform your photos into vintage masterpieces without having to go through Instagram.
The built-in camera in the MacBook Pro and Apple Cinema Displays isn't just for FaceTime and Facebook photos -- it can be used to record dynamic video to send out to friends and family, or even to bravely start your own YouTube channel. But even if you wanted to record video, you'd still have to edit it and make it interesting to watch, though you might not want to pay for any of that fancy studio editing software, and iMovie can only do so much. Fortunately, there's two gems in the Mac App Store that'll help you make more interesting-to-watch, candid videos without knowing a thing about time tables.
If you’re a fan of chatting with friends and family through Facebook, developer SHAPE Services has a treat for you, and just in time for the Labor Day weekend here in the U.S. -- IM+ Video is a new free app offering unrestricted video and voice calls to and from your iPhone through Facebook.
The announcement of Steve Jobs stepping down as Apple CEO hit the internet hard this week, so I thought it'd be appropriate to theme Free App Friday with current events. Now, Steve Jobs isn't completely gone here, people. He's still around in some form or another on Apple's Board of Directors, and you can probably still spot him out once in awhile near his favorite pizza joint in San Francisco. But if you want to keep his legacy going on your Mac and iOS devices, check out these free apps that let you pretend Steve Jobs is still the CEO of Apple.
Summer time is almost to an end, and you've probably got a ton of photos to sift through and upload to the web. Our suggestion is that you start with the incriminating blackmail photos first to get that over with, and then work your way up to the all-smiles group pictures. To get those photos to the web from your phone, here are four free apps that work in conjunction with your favorite social networks. Because it's Free App Friday and no one should have to pay for an app on a day like today.
It's really heartening to see the tide turn back towards Mac game development since the launch of the Mac App Store, with big-budget blockbusters and familiar iOS apps alike coming to Mac screens everywhere. While paid games are in steady supply, it may be tougher to locate worthwhile free offerings amidst the loaded listings -- and sure enough, the selection isn't quite as robust as you'd expect from the iOS App Store. But give it time! Until then, we've rifled through the current selection and picked out 10 worthwhile offerings that cover a wide variety of genres (and attention spans).
