Are you an absolute pixel perfectionist? Do you live and breath design? Do you know the difference between Times New Roman and Helvetica? If you answered yes to all those questions, then let me introduce you to a beautiful application.
Calvetica by Mysterious Trousers is a simplistic way to organize your calendars and tasks. It requires no setup, grabs your calendar data from the built in calendar application, and it’s super easy to use. The app takes the concept of simplicity and brings it to your calendar.
With Calvetica, you get all the power of Apple’s built in calendar with the simplicity much like the idea behind Windows Phone 7.
Everyday, everyone completes numerous tasks and for some, the completion of the tasks can sometimes be forgotten. Luckily for us Apple users, there’s a wealth of apps available in our much-loved App Store to help us get through the daily grind. One interesting dollar-priced app is in this category is Sorted.
Unlike many other to-do apps, Sorted is quite simplistic in UI and functionality. It’s simple: add tasks, get reminded and then do them. It’s not tedious, even if the task might be. So whether you need to remember to pick up milk from the store or be sure to get that birthday present, Sorted might just be your solution.
Wikipedia now has over three and a half million articles in it’s massive database and its something most of us use every day. Whether you’re checking who the actor in that movie you just saw was or learning stoichiometry (don’t worry, i’ll wait while you Google it), Wikipedia is one site that the Internet could not be without.
Now, I don’t know about you but I use my iPad a lot for casual browsing and Wikipedia is one of those sites I browse. Sure, Wikipedia in Safari is a great experience, but native apps almost always act superior to their web counterparts. Wikipedia has a wealth of unofficial iOS apps, some of which we’ve reviewed and one that we haven’t: Wikipanion.
Wikipanion doesn’t provide any gimmicky special Wikipedia experience like rearranging it into a magazine-style layout, it just browses the site. And it does that well.
So you’re looking for a good task manger? Join the club. We all want the same thing: something beautiful with plenty of features and automatic cloud syncing. We also don’t want to pay for either the iPhone or desktop version. The current trend in web content has taught us that we are entitled to such a service completely free of charge.
Strangely enough, such apps do in fact exist! Today we’ll take a look at Wunderlist, a newcomer making a big splash in the task management world. Also be sure to check out our review of the Mac version over at Mac.AppStorm.
If you haven’t hopped on the Twitter bandwagon yet, then you’re late to the game. It’s the best way to get easily consumable bits of information fed to you on a regular basis, as well as find out what weird things celebrities do during their off time. But with all that data out there, it can get a bit overwhelming at times. When hearing your Tweetdeck chirp every 30 seconds on your Mac gets irritating or having to scroll through five pages of Twitter for iPhone with your thumb gets tedious, maybe there should be a different option. Something simple.
That’s what Trickle is all about. Get your tweets one at a time, in a nicely consumable bite. It’s like the perfect snack of information. But is it worth the money? Let’s find out after the jump.
It’s about time when most will be returning back to normal life after the holidays. And today we should talk about a must-have app for all those new iOS devices received by students this Christmas: iStudiez Pro.
iStudiez Pro is a simple tool for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad that offers students (or anyone who has a recurring schedule) to import their timetable for easy browsing but also add assignments and schedule exams. The idea is simple: making life a little bit more organised for students.
There are a few different options for online storage, and one option that’s not only easy to use but free (with a few limits), is CloudApp. Now there’s a free app for the iPhone named Cloudette for CloudApp, which allows you to access your CloudApp account on your iPhone, making it handy to get at your stored files when you’re on the go.
Sure it’s free, but is the app worth the download? Let’s find out.
Have you been frustrated by simplistic text editors and note apps for iOS? Whether you’re a dedicated writer or a code monkey who can’t quit pounding out code even when on the go, you’ve likely found that most office and note apps don’t quite cut it.
Nebulous Notes is a notepad-type app that aims to solve these problems. It includes tons of options to tweak so you can get your editing environment working just like you want, and even includes macros to help you enter common text or special characters without navigating through all the available keyboard layouts. Let’s look at how this app can help simplify your writing or coding on the go.
Way back before iPhone.AppStorm even existed, we did a few iPhone app reviews on Mac.AppStorm. The original Put Things Off application was one of the rare apps that made it in during that time period. It was an attractive and extremely unique task manager that we really enjoyed using.
Recently, we were thrilled to get our hands on the newest iteration of the app, Put Things Off 2. Below we’ll take a look at the beautifully upgraded interface and walk you through the apps features. This is one review you won’t want to “put off” reading!
If there’s one big advantage that Android has over iOS, it’s arguably the lock screen. Although it’s neat to customize the wallpaper on your lock screen with images of your uncle’s weird gun collection, it would be nice if you could see what you have to do for the day or check out a quick reminder. Well it turns out there is a way to do that via a quick workaround, as well as a way to have handy reminders on the lock screen.
It’s called Sticky Notes Pro, and it’s a cool little app that lets you do all that and more. It even comes with a handy video to show you all of the nuances of the program. So is it worth the low price? Good question. Fortunately, we have the answer.
