One of the first developers to hit the App Store running when it was launched back in 2008, the folks at Readdle are celebrating their fifth anniversary this week by slashing prices on all of their iOS productivity apps.
Few third-party productivity apps are as lauded as Evernote. If you're the type of person who insists upon always-synced organization of all your ideas and projects, the program is invaluable. But even as the Evernote desktop client stands high atop the pillar of productivity tools, its iOS app leaves something to be desired. If you're looking for an alternative, Springpad is probably the best bet.
Holiday weekend coming up and you know what that means! Some of the biggest and best developers out there are chopping their prices, so you know it's time to fire up the credit card and head on down to the App Store.
Ever since Apple launched the first generation iPad, we've increasingly been using it in place of our iMacs and MacBooks, for more than just web browsing. While originally touted as a device for consumption and entertainment, these days we use the iPad for tons of productive tasks. And, with the new iPad's Retina display and quad-core graphics, we love using it instead of our computers more than ever. Here are five ways the new iPad will replace your computer.
We know there are plenty more -- let us know your favorites in the comments!
iCal is an amazing app. It's free, powerful, and syncs over all Mac platforms for free, thanks to iCloud. But, like any other app, you don't have to use iCal as-is--it can be so much more. These 12 apps and add-ons will all help you push your favorite workhorse calendar app to its limits. We don't recommend you use them all at once, but we hope you find a solution or two that works for you!
Your business has developed a workflow around FileMaker Pro. With the proliferation of iPads and iPhones, your employees now have more need than ever to be able to access that FileMaker Pro data on their portable devices. Enter FileMaker Go, a portable, flexible product to add to your road warriors' arsenal.
If there’s anything wrong with Dropbox -- and we’re not saying there is -- it’s that its friendly, free file storage is a little too reliant on outside apps. Getting an edited Pages file from our Mac to our iPad and back to our Mac, for example, is a multi-step affair: 1) open Dropbox; 2) export the file to Pages; 3) make changes; 4) email the file to our Maclife.com address; 5) open the file on our Mac; 6) save; and 7) overwrite the old file on our Dropbox account.
There has to be an easier way. And Notesy for Dropbox has found it.
This week, we've got three apps that help you get those goals completed, pay those bills, remember to feed your dependents (plants count, too), and even get inspired with more ideas! But remember: you don't have to start being productive today of all days. It's Friday, after all! It can wait until Monday. Anything can wait until Monday.
Hey, iPad owners! This one's for you. iPad apps tend to be more expensive than their smaller-screened counterparts, but luckily they go on sale just as often. This week we found iPad apps for making comic-book heroes out of you and your friends, apps to give you a reason to haul your trusty iPad to meetings, and a game that lets you take over the world. And you can get all of 'em for less than the price of a six-dollar burger...
As great as iOS is, it’s had one missing feature since the days of the original iPhone: lack of built-in to-do management. That will change with iOS 5’s upcoming Reminders app, but you can take charge of to-do’s today with BusyToDo, which brings familiar to-do management to your iDevice. How familiar? Picture iCal’s to-do features, then imagine most of them transplanted to a no-nonsense iOS app. That’s BusyToDo.
