Since it’s release in June 2012, TodoMovies has been a choice app for managing a queue of movies you want to watch. The app didn’t feature many bells and whistles, but instead focused on performing one task well. Originally, I enjoyed the concept and execution of TodoMovies, but at the time was maintaining a list of movies in the IMDb app. I decided to stick with IMDb instead of making a permanent switch, since I already used the app for so many things.

However, with the recent release of TodoMovies 2.0, which includes an impressive list of updates, it may be time to seriously reconsider making the switch after all. Join me after the jump as I detail these new features, and ultimately decide if TodoMovies lands itself a permanent spot on my iPhone. (more…)

I’m not a huge sports guy, but out of the big four U.S. leagues, the MLB is my deal. I grew up outside of Boston, and being a kid from that area means you’re required to like the Boston Red Sox. Seriously, I think it’s a law.

And despite their rough 2012, things are looking up so far in 2013, and so I wanted to find an app that helped me keep up on the current happenings but didn’t have a ton of extra stuff going on. That app is Race to the Pennant. Spoiler: It’s awesome. (more…)

I check the weather constantly, and I prefer the app I use to look nice. If I have to be constantly peeking into something ugly, I’m going to stop peeking. That’s how I end up in a rainstorm without my umbrella or wearing three cardigans in blistering sun. Apparently, “the sky looks cold” lacks accuracy, and I really need help finding a good weather app.

Speaking of good weather apps, Good Weather looks great, stores multiple locations, has built-in minigames and comes with more whimsy than you could shake a very whimsical stick at. But how does it hold up as a weather app? Let’s try it out! (more…)

Moves is so much more than a pedometer. In addition to keeping track of how many steps you take every day, the app can automatically recognize whether you’re walking, cycling or running, plus chart your route on a map and more. All you have to do is carry your iPhone in your pocket or in a bag.

Best of all, it visualizes your daily, weekly and monthly activity, allowing you to set and achieve simple goals for yourself. I’ll show you how it works after the jump. (more…)

Some people are just impossible to shop for, am I right? You always end up directly asking them what they want — or at least wishing you could.

Fontain is an app designed to remove this kind of stress from the equation of shopping for others, plus notify your friends and family members what it is you’re lusting after, too. The app will remind you of upcoming gift-giving dates, inform you when your friends or family receive gifts (no embarrassing duplicates!) and more. Click through to take a look. (more…)

Last June, Apple released a standalone podcasts management app with the rather simple moniker, Podcasts. To say the app was met with little fanfare is putting it quite mildly. In my original review of Podcasts, I too found the app to be underwhelming, with a list of issues and very few features for power users.

Recently, Apple released version 1.2 of Podcasts, bringing with it an all-new Now Playing view, custom stations, and a host of supposed syncing and stability improvements. Aftering putting Podcasts through its paces, I’m ready to give each and everyone of you fine readers the inside scoop on what these updates have to offer. (more…)

Beautylish is an online social network totally focused on beauty, including resources, product reviews, video tutorials, makeup tips, trends, celeb looks and more.

The iPhone app feels very much like a magazine chock-full of user-generated content. Browse what other beauty-obsessed individuals are discovering and experimenting with, plus learn how to get the cool looks they’re coming up with and share your own.

There are more Twitter clients available for iPhone than you can shake a stick at, and some of them are quite powerful. For a new Twitter app to break through the noise, it has to do something differently. It has to make the Twitter experience feel new, fresh and unique — a tall order when the communication exchanged doesn’t change from app to app.

Most Twitter apps try to make it as easy as possible to communicate with other people online. Slices‘ priority is similar, yet different. Its primary goal is to act as both a discovery tool and a sophisticated newsfeed that allows you to easily group your Twitter feed into different categories — called “slices,” of course — that are similar to Twitter’s built-in lists feature. Let’s find out more after the break.  (more…)

For the past few days I have been able to play around with Clinch, which is somewhat similar to another app I just reviewed, Qwiki, but it does things a little different. If you read my review on Qwiki, you’ll see how much I raved about it and how simple and easy it was to use. Well, I didn’t think I would say this, but I think I may have found one that is even simpler. On top of that, Clinch adds some features that I think are pretty neat.

Let me show you more about what I am talking about after the jump. (more…)
