In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Snap!. The developer describes Snap! as a camera app designed to turn the iPhone camera into a productivity tool: Snap a photo, write as many notes as you want, move them with your finger and the picture is saved with the notes overlaid on it. Sharing on Facebook, Twitter or email is just a touch away. Other apps can also do this but only Snap has a beautiful, fast and intuitive interface that makes all this easy and fun.

Countless entrepreneurs have set out to make their fortunes with the same idea: social media aggregation. The basic idea behind this movement is that you, the user, are overwhelmed by all of your social information. Every day you have to go through the hassle of checking your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Foursquare, Gowalla and other accounts and would like nothing better than to save yourself the trouble of app-hopping and get it all in one convenient place.

The argument seems sound doesn’t it? So why don’t we use these tools? Sure, we try them all and briefly maintain patronage, but in the end most of us end up using separate methods to access our various social networks. I believe there are several reasons for this phenomenon, the first of which is a modified version of an effect that has been present in technology for decades.

With the iPhone, Apple didn’t just take over the smart phone industry, they took over the photography industry as well! Geekaphone and other sources have been reporting that the iPhone has literally become the world’s most popular camera, not too bad for a device in a genre typically known for producing horrible images.

This of course makes a lot of sense. As one of the most popular phones on the planet, lots of people are carrying around an iPhone everywhere they go. Combine this convenience factor with the fact that Apple has done a phenomenal job with the camera setup on the iPhone 4 in addition to the wealth of awesome photography apps in the App Store and what you get is a recipe for photographic greatness.

Today we want to know how much you value your iPhone as a camera. On a typical day, do you bust out your Canon 5D mk II or simply reach into your pocket for your phone? Vote in the poll and leave a comment letting us know what other cameras you have and when you use your iPhone over them.

In the wake of our grand unveiling of iPad.AppStorm, we’re also shuffling some other things around here to keep the content dynamic.

There was a time back in primary school when my class had a math lesson that involved sticking to a budget as we went around the classroom ‘buying’ things with money that distinctively resembled Disney Dollars. That was the first and last time that I can remember finding the task of sticking to a budget and tracking expenses as being fun. That was until I came across the app, Toshl.

No longer will you need to hastily scribble your expenses on a crumpled piece of paper or try to mentally calculate how much of your holiday spending budget you have blown on drinks and tacky souvenirs. A few taps in the Toshl app and all will become clear, complete with a few nifty graphs thrown in for good measure. Whether you want to keep track of all your expenses or just a one off budget, such as your Christmas shopping, Toshl can be a real life (and hair) saver. Let’s take a look at Toshl’s main features, functionality and performance.

As rumors abound that Apple is moving towards an inevitable removal of the beloved home button, a second possibility crops up in the form of a capacitive sensor that replaces the woes of a physical button.

Today we’ll discuss why the home button is a central element of the iOS experience and whether or not it can be replaced with something such as a gesture or touch-sensitive switch without a dramatic reduction in usability.

Monopoly is a game that we’ve all played. It has a rich history and is the namesake of hundreds of different versions here in 2011. Its success is derived from a simple board game that can be traced back to 1903 where a similar game was created to explain tax theory.

Now, Monopoly is sold in a variety of editions with five of them living in my house alone. But for those not inclined to pull out the board game, there’s a solution available from EA Mobile and Hasbro, who teamed up to bring Monopoly to your iPhone. The game is, of course, available in the regular flavour, but today we’ll be looking at one of these variations: Here & Now.

The main difference between the two games, available on iPad or iPhone, is the place names. Monopoly opts for the regular names whilst Here & Now uses popular cities, such as London and Montreal to replace Illinois Avenue and Boardwalk, respectively. Transport and utilities are also rebranded to include more modern uses such as solar energy.
