Ladies and gents, the moment you've been waiting for since our last app went live is finally here. In version two, you can tweet, Facebook Like, and send emails about the stories you're reading and the products we cover in the app, without opening up another mobile browser app. Also, be sure to leave us your feedback about what you do and don't like, what works for you and what doesn't, what’s missing or what could be better. And we’ve given you an array of ways to provide that feedback within the app itself. This is just a taste of what's to come from MacLife's apps, and we hope you’ll be a part of the evolution.
So, what are you waiting for? Download it and let us know what you think!

You’d think that being crowned Apple’s iPad App of the Year (not to mention one of TIME magazine’s top 50 innovations of 2010) might make the cats at Flipboard lazy, but that’s not the case -- they’ve just rolled out a major 1.1 update which adds Google Reader, Flickr and a host of user-requested features.
The moment has at long last arrived puckheads! Now available as an In App purchase on the NHL Gamecenter Free App on the iPhone you can unlock GameCenter Live to gain access to live game video and more.
Apple just pushed out iBooks 1.2, a modest update to their universal e-reader app for iOS which lets you organize your e-books into Collections, print PDF documents and notes directly from the app via AirPrint and more. Here’s a look at what’s new!
Everything's gone digital. Long-playing records are now mp3 files, movies are downloadable, books can be read in electronic format, and farms and their crops are merely pixelized renditions of themselves. But they are so very fun to farm. The question you have to ask yourself then, is this: am I a Farmviller or something a lot Smurfier than that?
It’s the most wonderful time of the year--that is, until you have to fight your way through 12 months of knots and brave the cold so that Santa knows to stop at your house for some cookies. Of course, it’s just not Christmas without lights, and it’s just not Mac|Life without a few iPhone apps to help you deck your halls and keep everything calm and bright.
Very few things will get me out of bed before 5am. Okay, aside from snowboarding, nothing will get me out of bed before 5am. But getting up before the crack of dawn requires a plan. A plan that needs to be mobile and should be as fluid as possible.
Before I even pack my snowboarding bag, I fire up a few snow report apps on the iPhone. Right now my favorite is the North Face Snow Report (free). It’s possible that this is the only nonfleece North Face product I own (further research required). In addition to showing the required weather and snow report, the app also has trail maps and webcams of the resorts. So even if a resort exaggerates its report, you can see the half-inch of snow and decide for yourself if it’s really an “epic powder day.”
Google recently updated the mobile version of Google Docs for the iPad to allow editing while on-the-go, however, it wasn't as full-featured as you may have hoped. Today, however, you can access the full Desktop version of Google Docs right from Safari on your iPad. In this how to, we'll show you how you can enable this desktop version for all of your document editing needs.
Type "Twitter" in the App Store search bar and you will find page after page of apps, apps with integration, apps that convert voice to tweets, apps for image posting and searching, apps that only update your status and don't show you anything else at all, apps for this and apps for that. However, when you break it down, Twitter app users typically fall into one of two categories: users of the official Twitter app and users of popular third party solution, TweetDeck. Which one is the right one for you? Well, we guess that really depends.
