How-To

Since the powerful iOS 4 developer library was introduced, many fantastic app ideas have come to fruition. In the social networking realm we’ve seen Facebook and Twitter exploding into the mobile market. Previously, we had looked into popular check-in services using the powerful GPS feature within every iPhone and iPod touch.

The release of With by Path, Inc has shown some tremendous popularity. It’s a check-in service similar to Gowalla or Foursquare where you not only update your status but include @replies to who you’re currently with. It’s a stroke of genius and promotes a fantastic system for meeting new people in your area. If you’re looking to get started using With, hit the jump to find out more.

We’ve all re-visited a restaurant and after bit of menu wandering just cannot remember the amazing dish we had when we were here two months ago. It was the best thing you’d ever had and you told yourself you wouldn’t forget, but you did. Or maybe you’re trying to recreate that fantastic dinner you cooked up a few weeks ago, but you can’t remember exactly what you included in that salad. You knew you’d remember because it was so good, but guess what? You forgot.

Memorable Meals gives you a crutch in scenarios like these and some others as well. It allows you to quickly and easily catalog meals and their details to help you remember them. Seems like a killer idea, but how does it work?

Managing files on your iPhone can be a pain. iOS includes file viewers for most common file types, and with a few 3rd party apps you can easily edit many common office documents and other files you might receive in emails. You can even view or download any file in your Dropbox or SpiderOak accounts with their respective iPhone apps. The problem is, every app manages its own files, and there’s no built-in file explorer to let you save files and access them from any app.

Enter Berokyo. Berokyo is a powerful app that lets you manage files and organize them into folders, right on your iPhone or iPad. You can import files from many apps, then open files saved in Berokyo in other apps. It’s also fully integrated with Dropbox, so if you store most of your files in the cloud you’ll be able to use them from your iPhone easier than ever. In essence, it is the closest thing you can get to Finder or Explorer in iOS. Let’s dive in and see how Berokyo can make your mobile computing life easier in iOS.

You’re thousands of miles away from your home computer and you need to access a specific file. There are ample VNC (Virtual Network Computing) apps that let you connect to your computer with your iPhone or iPad, but what if you aren’t on the same network as your computer? Sure, advanced users could setup a VPN that allows you to remotely connect to your home network, but what about average users? How would you access your computer from anywhere in the world? With LogMeIn Ignition for iOS, you can do just that. Just log in with your LogMeIn account and it will handle everything. Within seconds, you will be connected to your home computer without having to setup a VPN, get an static external IP address, or use tools like DynDNS.

LogMeIn Ignition leverages their sophisticated remote software which connects two computers together without a VPN. We’re reviewed LogMeIn for Mac before on Mac.AppStorm and LogMeIn Ignition for iOS works just as seamlessly with an interface that’s easy to use on a touch screen.

LogMeIn for iOS allows me to remotely manage my home server and home computer from literally anywhere. I’m able to perform software updates, launch applications, and much more. It’s great when you need to find a specific file that you forgot to take with you.

If you’re an iPhone owner, I’m sure you’ve heard of the phenomenon that is Angry Birds. Writing this article at my desk I have an Angry Bird plush toy on top of my laptop in the corner and a fan-adapted theme song playing over the game on my iPad. It’s unreal just how much of a success Rovio has created.

While the idea of the game is very simple (kill pigs with birds catapulted from a slingshot), I’m surprised how many players don’t actually know what each bird does or what the difference between the blocks are. In addition to explaining what these are, in this article, we’ll be looking at some top strategies to bag more points in both Angry Birds and Seasons.

Need to use more than just English on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad? While many people may never need to use multiple languages, there are plenty of us that want to type in several languages. Plus, even if you only ever use English, you may sometimes want to insert special characters that aren’t on the normal keyboard layout.

Apple has included a wide range of languages directly in iOS, so you can change the main language on your device or simply add an extra keyboard so you can type in another language. Plus, the default English keyboard has a number of built-in special characters you might have never noticed. Here’s how you can use your favorite language on your iPhone or iPad.

This is a real life story of my experience working at an Apple Reseller before a major shopping holiday.

It was a few days before a major shopping holiday and we had a huge supply of iMacs, Macbooks, and iPods in our store. It was the perfect time for a holiday robbery, with thieves being able to steal a huge amount of valuable computers. Sure, we had an alarm, but alarms aren’t foolproof. We didn’t want to take a chance with so much product on the line. We also didn’t want to spent hours watching a surveillance camera in hopes we would catch someone breaking in.

We wanted something that would alert us if it detected motion. We wanted something portable enough to run on a few laptops or connect to our current security camera system. We turned to an app called iCam. iCam allowed us to connect several Macbooks to iCams software, giving us access to a live video stream from anywhere in the world.

Once upon a time, when people were hungry and in a hurry they had to either run through a fast-food drive-through or actually go through the trouble to make a phone call and talk with a human being to place an order to be picked up or delivered. Such archaic practices are giving way to online ordering, a much more cold and impersonal way to order your food.

All sarcasm aside, I actually love ordering food online. You skip the line, there’s much less chance of a failure in communication (which leads to improper orders), and you can take as much time as you want to look through the various options that are available without eating up anyone’s time but your own.

The restaurant industry has had large-scale ordering websites in place for years now, but we’re only just now starting to see the tip of this iceberg appear in the mobile app world. Today we’ll take a brief look at the state of ordering food using only iPhone apps.
