We’ve all seen the videos before: Some adventurous soul took one picture each day for a year and turned it into a video. Whether it’s a guy growing an epic beard or a girl posing the same way for 15 months, the videos are fascinating to watch and quite popular as well. If only you could make one yourself.
Well if you were motivated, you probably could. Just put that tripod and camera in the living room, set a daily timer and get after it. Most of us aren’t motivated though — not for this type of project anyways — so we just watch the videos on YouTube and think about how cool it would be to make one of our own.
Everyday is out to change that idea. It’s a very simple app that reminds you to take a picture of yourself every day, then forms it into a movie. Now, there’s a bit more to it than just that, so let’s get into it after the break.
Have you ever wanted an easier way to take photographs on your iPhone? Something that takes the simplicity of the Camera app and mixes it with features of a traditional DSLR? While the Apple camera application only offers a few features, perhaps you wanted an easy way to create a time lapse or take a family self portrait. With Canopy Camera Tools, a new iPhone app, you can do all that and more.
While many camera applications offer hundreds of bloated features, Canopy focuses on bringing you easy to use features without having to read a manual. Its combination of accurate icons and intuitive controls make it easy to use, while its Time Lapse features and integration with the Kopok case make it fun.
If you’re a fan of music, then you should be a fan of satellite radio. That’s because it offers over 140 sports, talk and music stations, most of which are commercial free. Currently, the big leader in the market is SiriusXM, the combo pack made up of both Sirius and XM Radio. It used to be that to enjoy their offerings you needed a special receiver connected to a branded radio at your home or in your car, but now all you need is your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Now you might be thinking, “I remember the Sirius app coming out a long time ago. Why should I get excited about it this time around?” Well, the app has been refreshed but more importantly, so has the content. So what makes it so special? Hit the jump and we’ll work it out.
Granted, the app store is flooded with text editing applications. But now and then a gem comes along that makes you rethink your current workflow. Essay for iPhone is such a gem.
Plain text notes are easy enough to accomplish. For that, the Notes app from Apple suffices. But what if you want structure and emphasis to your document? Maybe a heading? Some italics or even a list? That’s what’s called rich text editing and that’s where Essay rocks. The universal app takes rich text editing to a new level, paired with accessible file formats and easy synchronization. We’ll take an in-depth look at Essay and how it compares to other popular apps.
The term “scalping” has such a negative tone to it. The word conjures up images of guys standing near a stadium holding signs that say “I need tickets” in big letters and cash-only transactions. Although those people will still be around for a while, there are now legitimate means for getting your tickets, and it’s all done online and on your iPhone.
It’s called StubHub, and don’t just assume this is a ticket broker like so many others. After all, it’s the MLB’s official “fan-to-fan ticket marketplace,” so the company has some big time supporters. Until recently, buying or selling tickets from StubHub meant that you had to log on to their website and do your business, but now StubHub makes that a bit easier with the introduction of an iPhone app. Is it worth the download? Find out after the break.
Voice modification apps are always good for a few laughs. They allow the toughest of men to sound like squeaky wimps and the littlest of girls to sound big and scary.
Today we’re going to take a look at VoiceMod. An app that just may be the best voice-modification app around and the most fun than you’ve had in years on your iPhone.
Recording and publishing video has become incredibly easy in the last couple of years. Services like YouTube and Vimeo provide great places to share our professional and amateur videos alike. High definition video capture is built into many smartphones (iPhone 4 included) so we have a high quality camera with us all the time ready to capture whenever the moment calls.
Vimeo is a fantastic platform for sharing video and they have recently released an accompanying iPhone application. The app aims to be a full companion to the website while offering some services which utilize the hardware of the iPhone itself. It seems like a perfect place for Vimeo to be, but does their app do everything we hope it does? Let’s find out.
Your day is busy, packed with all sorts of events and meetings. You need a task manager that’s going to keep you on track with your schedule, like Task Eater for iOS. Task Eater makes it really easy to add new tasks, providing you with a simple interface to create a title and add additional notes about your task. Use the notes field to add information like the event location, important phone numbers, or other information relevant to the event.
Task Eater has several features that separate it from the sea of task managers in the App Store, features like assigning task categories based on a chosen icon, local notifications, a great user interface, and much more. Let’s see how you can chomp away at your daily schedule with Task Eater.
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.
