We all know about the wonders by now that the app Evernote can do for us, and how it has built on the ways that we can stay organized. Now, the company has done it again, by coming up with a new way to help your mind keep sharp, while utilizing the iPad 2's Smart Cover at the same time!
A sad fact of life is that most working adults are too busy. We have appointments and engagements to make (and keep!), contact information to remember, and random thoughts to write down. Bare-bones TapTask makes that easier to accomplish with your iPhone or iPod touch.
It's Friday, it's summer, it's almost time for WWDC, and everyone's in a great mood. Saving money on fun iOS games -- or getting helpful non-game apps for free -- is just the icing on the cupcake. This weekend's price drops have something for everyone.
The Mac App Store certainly has made buying Mac software a convenient affair -- just a click and a password, and boom, there it is. But like the iOS App Store, it's starting to fill up fast. That's good news for you -- lots of choice -- but it also means that when you type in a keyword or open up a category, you're faced with multiple options.
We're here to help.
We put dozens of Mac App Store offerings through our ringer of a reviews process and settled on 20 diverse applications that all scored well and come with our recommendation. Even better? They're less than $20 a pop.
You’ve got to spend money to make money. But with the rise of iDevices, you don’t need to spend much to make a lot. With a few well-planned purchases, you can get your business going with nothing but an iPhone, iPad, and a few good ideas.
An iOS business is a highly mobile one, so get the Wi-Fi hotspot on your iPhone for an additional $25 a month on your AT&T or Verizon bill.
If you’re still looking for the perfect note-taking app for the iPad, your search may just have ended. The creators of the popular Comic Zeal Comic Reader have just released ThinkBook, an “organizational marvel” for notebooks and outlines.
Compressed data has been the norm in computers forever. Crunching down files without losing fidelity and being able to decompress them later in perfect condition? Great idea. And with data caps being placed on mobile users, compressed files can only grow in importance. But RAR, ZIP, TAR, 7Z, GZIP? It's an alphabet soup awaiting you out there. You don't want to buy five different apps to handle every format, and Apple hasn’t gone native on this. So what are your options?
Let's face it: We all have different needs when it comes to to-do lists. Some of us can get by with simply editing a text file; others need priorities and action-items and project labels.
But chances are good you're somewhere in the middle. And that means chances are good that Google's oft-overlooked Tasks web app can satisfy your needs. It supports basic hierarchical structure, allowing you to create sub-tasks for larger projects. It supports due dates for tasks, and provides a field to enter notes for each task. And it supports drag-and-drop reordering, which may not be as elegant as a priority system, but can serve the same purpose with limited fuss.
Trouble is, most of us need to be able to access a to-do list without having to load up a web page. Luckily, with some free tools (and a Google account, natch), you can do just that -- and embed Tasks as an always-accessible drop-down window on your menu bar.
Back when it was just the iPhone, there wasn't much demand for mobile word processing, but when the iPad came along, people expected full computer functionality. Apple heeded the call with mobile versions of iWork, but Microsoft Office still remains king of document software. The popular .doc is still the number one format with a bullet, and a variety of office-based software has arisen to handle it.
In our special cage match office productivity App Showdown, we go three rounds to find out who is the undisputed master of the mobile domain, Apple or its competitors.
Applications like iCal, OutLook and Entourage are great for keeping track of the many appointments, tasks and deadlines in our lives--but unless you keep the the programs open and running all the time, they're hardly handy for preforming simple tasks such as telling us what the date or day of the week it is. Fortunately, thanks to a clever, but often ignored set of options in your Mac's System Preferences, there's an easy method for doing both without the need to open up any calendar software.
