Web design is a big profession, but some iPhone owners might not have the skills to develop nor the budget to hire a designer. Luckily, blogging platforms such as WordPress and Tumblr come with their own collections of themes for your free use. Theme design is a big business too and they have become very functional due to the massive number of features available in platforms like WordPress.
However, all those additional functions come with an added complexity and that might not be suited to everyone’s tastes. Maybe you just want to setup a quick blog to share some photos from your trip, or perhaps you just wanted to post links to some interesting articles you’ve found on your ventures around the internet.
Almost exactly one year ago we took at look at the brand new Apple Store app for iPhone, which allowed you to browse, find and make appointments at local stores as well as actually purchase products right from your phone.

TweetDeck has always been a popular choice among tweeters who want to maximise their potential on the social network. It’s by far the most popular third-party client with a 19% market share in June 2009 and it’s an application I’ve personally used for a long time.
TweetDeck started out as an Adobe Air application for desktop, but expanded into the mobile and tablet arena some twelve months later with an iPhone version. Now, nearly two years later, the iPhone experience has been completely overhauled and rebuilt with several new features alongside a brand new user interface. This changes everything. Again.
One short year ago, Tapbots announced that they had started working on a new Twitter app: Tweetbot. Twitter had just announced that they were buying out Tweetie, and soon turned it into the new free Twitter for iPhone. Since then, Twitter has made it obvious that they want their own apps to be the only standard consumer Twitter apps, and recommended developers find other things to focus on.
Overall, though, Twitter for iPhone is still a nice app, and is quite popular. However, it has had some recent problems including the recent addition (and quick removal) of the extremely unpopular Quick Bar, which showed trending and promoted topics on the top of your tweet stream. Even though Twitter has now removed the Quick Bar, the episode has left many iPhone users considering other Twitter apps again.
The stage was set for an all-new Twitter app to be released. And Tapbots stepped up to the challenge.

If the vast information repository that is the Internet were a solar system, Wikipedia might just be the sun (with Google being the rocket ship that takes us there). It’s the central element to most of our every day knowledge hunting expeditions. Any time you have a question to ask of the all-knowing Internet, there Wikipedia will be, sitting quietly near the beginning of your search results, holding the answer to your question.
Today’s app answers the question, “What if Wikipedia weren’t just an answer to our questions?” What if this great storehouse of knowledge could be transformed into an enjoyable daily reading experience that we visit for educational entertainment? Enter Discover — Wikipedia in a Magazine.
