The original Reeder was widely regarded as the best feed reader on the iPhone, something we wholeheartedly agreed with. Unfortunately, Google Reader was shut down earlier this year which not only forced its users to find a replacement platform but also had developers scrambling to update their apps.
Silvio Rizzi, the developer of Reeder, wanted to ensure that any update to one of the most popular RSS apps wasn’t just a rush job, taking the decision to release one last update for the iPhone version to provide support for services such as Feed Wrangler and Fever, something to tide us over until an all-new Reeder would appear.
Well, Reeder 2 is now in the App Store with an all-new app for both iPad and iPhone. Does absence really make the heart grow fonder or has Reeder been gone too long? (more…)
Lot of exciting technologies came up at the dawn of the Web 2.0 era. Some succeeded early and have turned into dominant platforms today. On the other hand, some failed all too miserably despite being equally awesome. Podcasting is one such tech trend that never quite reached the masses (although you will hear arguments to the contrary).
YouTube and other video sharing sites grabbed the audience early on and audio publishing never really had a chance. Today, audio publishing is targeted mostly at geeks, influentials and power users, but that doesn’t stop entrepreneurs from launching cool stuff involving audio every now and then. Snackr dishes out news in tiny, bite-sized audio clips. Sounds interesting, right? (more…)
I prefer applications that provide some sort of syncing service. This is pretty advantageous compared to other apps, since you don’t need to worry about backing anything up in case you restore your iPhone (or if you lose it), and you can use the same information from different devices and even different services. For example, you can use Wunderlist from nearly any device or computer, even a browser, which is a lot more comfortable than just having your tasks on your iPhone.
Considering the advantage of having an app that syncs with any service, here’s a list of approximately 40 apps that have this functionality.
When it was first released, Mobile Safari was quite groundbreaking. It was a pioneer in blurring the lines between experiencing the web on a desktop and a mobile device. However, since then, it doesn’t feel like Mobile Safari has gained a lot of ground. Consequently, many users are looking elsewhere to either supplement or replace the iPhone’s default browser altogether.
The problem with searching for a replacement browser is that the App Store is bursting with horrible homegrown browsers that are far worse than Safari. Today we wanted to aid your search with a brief list of browsers that are actually worth trying. All of the apps below have decent or great reviews on iTunes and many have been reviewed right here on iPhone.AppStorm. Whether you’re looking for full screen browsing, more privacy, better tab management or even offline viewing, you’ll find the perfect solution here!
I was a big fan of Envato long before I began writing for AppStorm. One of my favorite aspects of the Envato network is the Envato Marketplaces, where I’ve been an author for quite a while. The Envato Marketplaces serve as both an excellent way for designers, developers and musicians to make a little extra income as well as pick up a few quick resources. This ever-growing network of sites includes ThemeForest, ActiveDen, AudioJungle, VideoHive, GraphicRiver, 3DOcean and CodeCanyon.
As an Envato Marketplace author, you frequently have to stop by a site to check in on your earnings, comments, etc. Recently, Envato released an API for the marketplaces that has led to a sudden crop of awesome apps allowing you to perform this task right on your iPhone. Below we’ll take a look at all the apps currently available for marketplace authors so you can decide which is right for you.
With enough users to populate a small planet, Facebook has become the quintessential Internet experience. We’re all hopelessly addicted to it whether or not we agree with some of its business practices.
Since I’m a big fan of the iPhone Facebook iPhone app, I naturally went straight to the App Store when I bought my iPad in search of the iPad version and was quite disappointed to see that one doesn’t exist. In lieu of an official app, today we’ll look at your three primary options for getting Facebook free on your iPad.
Since the beginning of iOS time, there have been a number of Twitter applications ranging from the most simple to the utterly complex. If you can do it with Twitter, then there’s probably an app that can do it too.
Then, with the release of the iPad, there came a new wave of Twitter accessing apps to fill up the larger screen with even more tweet-bling! So, if you are unsure of the Twitter clients available for iOS, are unsatisfied with your current client, or are even curious to glance at some alternatives, read on. I’ve listed 25 iOS apps that range from feature-packed to action-specific just for you!
The iPod has come a long way since 2001. The second generation model sitting on my desk doesn’t have a color screen, weighs enough to be used as a self-defense aid and does little else than play music (though block breaker was a pretty cool feature at the time).
My iPod Touch on the other hand is an astonishing technological feat rivaling that of the iPhone. However, there are definitely a few major features that iPhone users enjoy that I miss out on. Fortunately, several app developers are on the task of closing this feature gap and have significantly extended the functionality of the iPod Touch.
Today we’ll look at ten apps that help make your iPod Touch a lot cooler by mimicking some of the basic features found on iPhones.
