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.
If hotcakes were selling like iPads, IHOP would be the hottest investment on the block. But hold the maple syrup -- despite the higher price tag on most Macs, Apple’s making more money off iPads these days. Its Q3 2011 iPad earnings were $6.05 billion, up 179 percent since the previous year. Meanwhile, Mac sales raked in $5.1 billion…representing gains of only 16 percent.
What’s driving the iPad’s explosive growth? The “cool factor” is certainly part of it, but the iPad’s utility is the foundation of its success. It’s terrific as a second computing device (the first being a Mac or PC), and for many of us, it’s taking the spotlight as our primary platform for work, email, browsing, and beyond. Thanks to the cutting-edge offerings in the App Store (15 billion downloads served!), it’s even more practical than ever before to handle all your productivity needs with an iPad. We’re talking photographing checks to deposit them, piping video calls to your TV, and loads more. But how?
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.
