Ever since I cut the cord on cable about a year ago, I have increased my watching and searching for videos on the net. Both Hulu Plus and Netflix have been a staple on my iOS devices for watching mainstream shows. But I have been noticing the trend in media which, like a lot of other things, have started to become more social and interactive.

To be perfectly honest, I never really got into the social aspect of watching videos and the apps that came out for them. But, for some reason, when I saw this app named Denso, it started to all make sense to me a bit more and I actually started to get more interested in the videos that are being shared on my social accounts and around the net. Was it the app or was it the fact that I just now “got it?” I’m not sure, but feel free to read more and you can be the judge. (more…)

If you are familiar with the real estate market then you have likely heard about Zillow.com. They are a powerful marketplace where buyers and sellers can post listings, photos and information about homes. You can search for properties by area, or even request a specific addresses.

The best part about Zillow is their fully featured mobile app experience. Their native app supports both iPhone and iPad devices, both with all of the same featured functionality. You can look up addresses and see previous listings/sale prices over the years. Anybody with an interest in the housing market will love to check this out. (more…)

When it comes to iOS games, there aren’t too many that come out that people are waiting for with baited breath. Infinity Blade I and II come to mind, but other than that, not much else. And then there’s Angry Birds Space, the latest version of the popular Angry Birds franchise. And that’s when the world exploded.

This is the game that my father has been waiting for. My dad, the guy who got a Playstation 2 for Christmas a few years back and returned it because it made him “too violent” has been patiently waiting for Angry Birds Space. Yes, this is the game your parents want — but it’s probably the one you’ve been waiting for as well.  (more…)

There’s a big market for photography apps on the App Store, proven by fantastic apps like Instagram which allow on device editing and styling of your photos. However, while capturing detail in a scene isn’t an issue, photos are fairly shallow when there’s much more that can be recorded of a scene.

Picle takes photography to a new level, by merging it with audio recording to create incredible, unique stories. Instead of capturing a photo, Picle lets you record a “picle,” a photograph with a couple of seconds of background audio merged together. Let’s get into it after the jump. (more…)

There are a ridiculous number of iPhone games available in the App Store and that number is growing faster than ever. What’s even more interesting is seeing what different and interesting things developers are doing with their games. The creativity of the developers keeps me coming back to explore new titles in the games category all the time.

Beat Sneak Bandit takes touch interaction up a level and combines audio and touch to create really interesting gameplay and something I hadn’t experienced before — It was just too different to avoid. Let’s explore Beat Sneak Bandit. (more…)

I know that we’re well past all of the Valentines Day hullabaloo, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late for some groan-worthy cuteness, now does it? If you have a significant other, chances are pretty good that you share things with them on a daily basis. Well that’s all well and good, but wouldn’t it be nice to have one private channel through which you can share all of this stuff? And furthermore, creating memories with that special person is part of the fun of being in a relationship, so how do you chronicle all of your photos and text messages for future nostalgia?

Enter Cupple, an app for iPhone that lets you privately share and catalogue your experiences with that special someone. The folks behind the app describe it as “the worlds first social network for two people in a relationship.” If this sentiment makes you bit nauseous, I’d understand. If it sounds like fun, though, hit the jump to learn more about how it works. (more…)

Is iPhoneography real photography? There are quite a few discussions concerning this subject and I myself am noticing the changes in my own life when it comes to capturing those special moments. While I used to lug my 20-pound camera equipement everywhere with me, nowadays I find myself relying on my iPhone more often.

I do miss some things, of course. Among them is the ability to use bokeh as an element of composition and make an object stand out from a blurry background. The iPhone lens can’t deliver results like that, but with Big Lens I can achieve results that look almost like the real deal. Read along to learn more about this app. (more…)

If you have an iPhone, chances are you use or have heard of Instagram. The service is great; the user interface, on the other hand, not so much. Browsing has always been a pain in the app as features are buried under layers and layers of content.

That is where Gramory comes into the picture. Gramory offers an intuitive solution to Instagram’s user interface problems by providing a clean and simple browsing experience. But what makes it an app that you’ll really need?

One of the great things about the Internet is the constant stream of information available all the time. If you’re reading this review, there’s a pretty good chance you also enjoy browsing other websites to learn about what’s going on in the world. In doing so, I’m sure you’ve found yourself in a situation in which you wanted to read something but didn’t have time. Perhaps you left a tab open on your browser to read it later, or thought that you’d remember to check it next time you were online (but didn’t).

In situations such as this, it would be nice to save the article so that you could read it at your leisure, possibly on a multitude of devices.Now, I know that my scenario may conjure up images of Instapaper or even Safari’s Reading List feature, however, Instapaper will run your $4.99 and Safari’s Reading List is limited by the fact that you have to use Safari. If you want a service as great (if not greater in some aspects) as Instapaper at none of the cost, then Readability is just the service for you. Find out more after the jump. (more…)
