Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to get out bed, open the curtains and face the sunlight to see a beautiful depiction of the weather outside your house?
Outside allows you to do just that! It even goes a step further and brings push notifications and weather forecasting together in an intriguing fusion. Will the weather ever be the same again?
The Mac ships with a wonderful dictionary app. You get a dictionary, thesaurus, and optimized wikipedia browser all in one beautiful app. Unfortunately, the iPhone ships with nothing of the sort. There are a number of good 3rd party options out there. Today I’ll be taking a look at Terminology PH.

With over 225,000 applications available on the iTunes App Store, there is no shortage of apps that can do just about anything. Many of these pack in the features and over time, become more and more complex.

Let’s get this out of the way up front: a great application should do one thing, and do it very, very well. Bento for iPad is not a great app. All the same, it deserves a full review, partly as an iPad app created by a subsidiary of Apple and partly in the hope that I’ll have the opportunity to review a much-improved version somewhere down the line.
Bento for iPad is a mobile version of FileMaker’s consumer-oriented Bento database app. It’s meant to contain information about any collection, series of events, or other information that can be expressed in the form of a database. That information can either be entered directly on the iPad, or synced to the iPad app from the desktop app. Using the latest version of the desktop app, databases can even be synced between a Mac, an iPad, and an iPhone.
According to Neustar, somewhere around 2.5 billion text messages are sent in the US every day. In fact, approximately one third of teenagers send just over 100 texts in a single 24 hour period! (source)
The complete cost of all this texting about is no doubt astronomical. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could join the conversation for free? A number of services have cropped up in the past few years promising to do that very thing. Today we’ll look at Textie, an iPhone app from the creators of Borange and Tweetie that allows you to send and receive free SMS text messages.
GoodReader has earned a lot of praise online and in the App Store for being a superb PDF reader, showing the high demand for this kind of functionality on both the iPad and iPhone/iPod touch. It was one of the first file management apps for the iPad, and connects to a huge range of different servers and devices.
As this review is going to show, GoodReader’s capabilities are not limited to just viewing PDF’s, but a large number of file types including audio and even video.
Sahil Lavingia has created an application called Dayta (in a week!) that allows you to track almost anything! The app gives you the freedom to choose the unit of measurement for your data log, leading to an almost endless variety of potential uses for the app.
Dayta is a unique application to the App Store because it doesn’t focus on tracking just one item. The only limit to what you can track is your imagination. Participants in the test group tracked data such as days absent from smoking, kill to death ratio in Call of Duty and even how many words they have memorised in Japanese.
In this review, we’ll be taking a look at how to set the application up, and how the process of inputting and tracking your “data” works.
When it comes to keeping track of accounts such as cellular and data, nothing is more important than knowing exactly what your usage is. Logging in and searching your account online can become a hassle, especially when on-the-go.
