This week's New App Recap features a big update for one of the best home entertainment apps around, a slick new way to read news, improvements to Parallels Access, a fun way to count steps, an app for tracking numbers and other information, how to keep tabs on your family tree, an iPad app for gathering data from a variety of sources, and enhancements to a leading calling/messaging app. Best of all, these updates are only a click away, so check 'em out!
We love Dashboard on our Macs. It feels like a bit of iOS on OS X, with tiny apps that look pretty and perform simple functions amazingly well. With a beautiful interface and a dynamic set of customizable widgets, Panic's ambitious Status Board attempts to bring that experience to our iPads, with at-a-glance access to your most important data and a fantastic new playground for coders.
