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.
We actually shouldn't say that because saying that word is like muttering Beetlejuice three times in a row--something awful happens, like some writer somewhere is just stuck and may never finish their novel because you dared to utter that evil phrase. Hopefully these apps will get you out of your situation and into the zone--where words flow out of your fingers like water out of a hose. Free flowin'.
Time Geeks takes unabashed inspiration from Where’s Waldo, but this great iPhone and iPad game arguably one-ups those classic find-the-character hunts by offering a diverse array of items and people to find on each map, plus randomized placements of each. With a visual style inspired by classic pixel graphics and several stages packed with pop culture references (including an island loaded with Lost gags), Time Geeks will keep you busy for weeks; mini-games and a level editor keep things interesting for even longer.
Sometimes, the best entertainment comes at the expense of a friend -- all in good fun, of course -- and these four apps will help you accomplish that. Trick your friends with a couple of these mischievous apps, but don’t dish it out unless you can take it back in return!
It seems like everything's got Wi-Fi these days: smartphones, tablets, weather monitors, baby monitors--even children's toys. More than we'd like to admit it, if it weren't for Wi-Fi, we might not know what's going on at all times of the day.
But there are other uses for Wi-Fi than merely surfing the internet. More specifically, Wi-Fi can be used to stream movies, control your Mac and--hey!--get you on the internet when you're in a far away country. This week, we highlighted three free apps that stream movies between your Macs, let you control iTunes or Apple TV with your iOS device and find a Wi-Fi hotspot in Sweden without even connecting to the internet.
If you're not too smitten with the idea of paying annually for The Daily's subscription price, we've got three apps that fully endorses the Freedom of Information Act. Actually, they're merely aggregators and RSS readers, but they work for those of you who'd rather troll Reddit and sift through Gawker headlines rather than subscribe to hard news.
If there was ever a relevant moment in the original Star Wars trilogy, it would have been during the Empire Strikes Back when an ancient Jedi Master named Yoda calmly stated that "Size matters not." Yoda then proceeded to lift a multi-ton spaceship out of a muddy bog and placed it exactly where he wanted it using nothing more than the force. With that inspirational moment in mind, we think of Sony's recent unveiling of the much-anticipated, next-generation handheld console, currently codenamed the "Next Generation Portable" -- or "iPod touch killer" in some circles.
The iPhone’s touch interface and crisp Retina Display make it a surprisingly adept platform for all sorts of games, from sports and shooters to action hits and puzzlers. A seemingly endless array of options can be found in the App Store, but for surefire gaming fun without delay, here’s some of our recent favorites.
