One of the flagship features on these iDevices is the music-playing capabilities. Of course, if you listen to music as much as I do, you will be on the constant search for some new tunes. This is where Discovr Music comes into the picture. This nifty little application allows you to find new music literally in a tap.
Let’s dive into it after the jump. (more…)
Reading is part of our daily lives. You’ve probably heard people claiming they can read 200 pages in 20 minutes or similar, and you’re wondering if it’s possible. Also, there are a lot of applications and programs that will supposedly teach you how to read faster, but none of them seem very effective.
There might be an exception though: Reading Trainer. It’s an iPhone (and iPad) app that has become very popular on the App Store and is actually very well reviewed by their users. It claims that, with practice, you’ll be able to read 2 to 3 times faster than your current speed. I’ve been expecting an app like this for a while now, since reading fast has always been like a dream to me. Let’s see if the promises hold true. (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…)
