Taking the sting out of chores is nothing new. In fact, there are a number of avenues ranging from activity books for children to the ever-entertaining Chore Wars. However, it's rare in Free App Friday that we get the chance to share an app that's as useful for parents as it is for the twenty-something looking for pizza money in the couch.
Cultured Code's Things can help you get organized and keep tasks, ideas, and inspiration from falling through the cracks. And through January 31 it's on sale for half off, $24.99. I'm here to tell you, it's worth every penny.
It's the battle of the social media titans. LOL, JK. Facebook unveiled some rather interesting stuff today if you like searching among your friends for plumbers or Grateful Dead fans (you probably know who, right?) and making calls to your Facebook friends. And on the other hand, former player MySpace is letting itself be used by Justin Timberlake to launch his new album. Heck, they're probably paying him. What a gig. So what else happened that wasn't about social media? Let's have a peek.
Accounting is probably a chore to most of us (professional accountants aside), which is why we're thankful there are companies like Acclivity, who has just released their 2013 edition of AccountEdge Pro to tackle them on our Mac or iOS device.
Last year, a group of architects and designers started The Morpholio Project, which led to producing the Morpholio app, an impressive way to collaborate and receive feedback on visual projects. The group's next iOS outing, Morpholio Trace, brings the creative freedom of a trace-paper notebook to your iPad.
Getting organized may be a chore for most of us, but it's a boon for app developers, who keep coming up with creative ways to help. One of the latest is Projectbook, billed as the first "active" notebook for iPad users.
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.
It’s hardly a new rumor: Microsoft Office is widely expected to arrive on the iPad at some point in the future, given how Redmond has been embracing the platform with practically all of its other software. But a new report claims it may be a little closer to reality than previously thought.
With so many apps now available in the App Store, it’s not often that one comes along that makes everyone swoon over it. Let’s face it: We’re jaded by having so many cool apps on the iOS platform, so we stand up and take notice when one gets so much attention. This week, it’s Realmac Software’s Clear which has everyone talking.
