The iPad was designed from the start as a great way to read, but few developers have been able to crack the perfect app for absorbing such content. Readdle is throwing its own hat into the ring with its free Documents app, now available on the App Store.
Hot on the heels of Corel announcing its acquisition of Avid's consumer product division in July, the company has wasted no time in debuting one of the fruits of that labor with the free Pinnacle Studio 2.0 video editing app for iPad.
So how about that YouTube app? With Apple confirming that YouTube isn't being invited to the iOS 6 party, it certainly appears Cupertino is working hard to ditch as much of Google as humanly possible from its mobile OS. Thankfully, iOS 5 seems as if it will be safe, so if you've got an older device or no plans to upgrade right away, you can keep 'Tubin' the same way you have been. Meanwhile, here's what else is making headlines for this Monday, August 6, 2012.
With not even a press release, Amazon has made the lives of video streaming fans a little bit nicer this week by finally releasing an Instant Video app for the iPad. Could an iPhone app be just around the corner?
Acquisitions are all the rage these days, and one of the companies making some of the most interesting acquires is Evernote. After bringing Skitch into the fold, the company has announced Penultimate as the next to join the Evernote family.
Square is on a roll with its iOS-based payment system, but much like Apple itself, the company isn’t content to rest on its previous success. Instead, they’ve introduced a new free app called Square Register with the intention of converting an iPad into a full-fledged point of sale cash register.
When it comes to Twitter clients, everyone has a favorite -- and much to the company’s chagrin, rarely does it seem to be its own free apps. Thankfully, there’s no shortage of excellent third-party apps, and iOS users in particular seem to have no problem forking over hard-earned money for them. Among the best is Tweetbot, billed as “a Twitter client with personality.” This week, developer Tapbots LLC gave Twitter fans a one-two punch in the form of a major version 2.0 update to the iPhone and iPod touch app, as well as a native iPad app that users have been clamoring for.
With much of the internet blacked out today in protest of the pending SOPA bill, you’re probably ready to read about something -- anything! -- else to wind down your mid-week “hump day.” Of course, we’re all waiting to see what Apple will serve up to the educational community tomorrow, but in the meantime they’re busy slapping Samsung with another patent lawsuit aimed at the Korean manufacturer’s smartphones -- so there’s no end in sight. In the meantime, here’s what else is making news for this wonderful Wednesday, January 18, 2012.
The war of words between iOS and Android goes on, with Google’s mobile boss now claiming the lion’s share of new device activations over the Christmas holiday. How Apple will respond is anyone’s guess, but with the close of another calendar quarter just days away, we’d expect some serious revenue boasting next month when Cupertino reports revenue from their holiday quarter. In the meantime, there’s plenty of other tech items making news for this Wednesday, December 28, 2011.
If you’ve been following the saga of Facebook’s native iPad app, you already know that yes, it does exist and according to reports circulating on Monday from a former developer, it’s been “feature complete” since May. So what’s the holdup? The social network may be using it as leverage to cozy up to Apple.
