I have been reading and writing for a living since 2006, and am a fan of Apple products for the creativity and convenience they bring to my work and the rest of my life. For more info about me, you can visit my website or follow me on Twitter.

Use the app as an everyday music player, at get-togethers with friends, or while you’re at the gym. The app displays the beats per minute for every song, so you can take that into consideration when crafting your playlist. Hit the jump and I’ll show you how it works. (more…)

Forget coupons. If you’ve ever gone through the checkout line at the grocery store or other market and been dismayed at the grand total flashing across the register, you are going to be excited about ibotta, an app that rewards you for buying certain brands and products: with cold, hard cash.

OK, maybe more like digital cash, but it’s still deposited directly into your PayPal account, from which you could then turn it into, yep, cold hard cash. The service is completely simple and free to use. Sound like an offer you can’t refuse? Click “more” and I’ll give you the details. (more…)

It seems like just about everyone I know could use a little less stress in their lives these days. With all that has to get done on a day-to-day basis it can be hard to find the time — or to make the time — to just relax and catch your breath.

Tapestry offers users a new way to share stories with others. Move forward through each story, which is something a little like a slideshow, via taps. You can’t go backward, only forward, and every time you tap a bit more information or part of the story is revealed.

It sounds so simple, and yet Tapestry’s concept is incredibly versatile, and pretty fun. Let’s face it, sometimes stories or jokes just have more impact when a tap reveals a twist or punchline. Come on, click “more” and I’ll show you what I mean. (more…)

If you already use Buffer in conjunction with your desktop or laptop, you’ll no doubt be pleased with this mobile incarnation. And if you’re among the uninitiated, get ready for your life to become a whole lot easier.

Buffer for Twitter and Facebook automatically schedules your tweets and posts for you, even spreading them out over the course of a day so that they don’t go live all at once. If you read a share-worthy article (or more) while browsing the web on your iPhone, you can instantly add it to your Buffer to be shared later. I’ll show you how easy it is after the jump. (more…)

It took me way too long to write this review. That’s because every time I opened the app to reference something I’d get sucked back into the game. But I couldn’t help it — there was just so much to be done in my town! I needed to review proposals; read up-to-the-minute headlines about my decisions; and check on my construction projects.

See, Run That Town is a strategy game grounded in reality: You are put in charge of a neighborhood in Australia and must use real Census data to decide what will be best for your citizens. Your actions will determine whether they applaud you — or chase you out of office. Click “more” to see what it’s all about. (more…)

Oh and here’s a fun fact: inBloom was built by Andrew Ross of the band OK Go, and Eytan Oren of Eytan and The Embassy. So, after you finish table-drumming your favorite song by either band, click “more” to take a closer look at what this app can do. (more…)
