There are plenty of ways to find out how to get to the destinations you want to visit. Your iPhone includes Google Maps, which works great for finding precise directions, and there are a number of other GPS apps that give you turn-by-turn directions and more. But how are you going to find new restaurants, libraries, doctor offices, and more?
Today, there’s tons of new data being saved daily about places all around you. The problem is just that it’s hard to put all of the info together. You could search on Google or Bing, or check Foursquare and Twitter to see where people are going. The Problem is, this can be time consuming. Localscope is an exciting new app that does the legwork for you and makes it surprisingly easy to find destinations all around you. Keep reading to find out more.

Earlier today Apple made good on their promise to wow us once more with yet another new multi-touch wonder: the iPad 2 (Steve Jobs himself kicked off the presentation). Rumors have been flying for months about what it would and wouldn’t include, many of which were proven true, though as always Apple still had a few surprises up its sleeve.
Keep reading to see what the hype is all about. We’ll go over all the details of the new and improved iPad so you can see whether or not it’s time to give in and get one!
You’re thousands of miles away from your home computer and you need to access a specific file. There are ample VNC (Virtual Network Computing) apps that let you connect to your computer with your iPhone or iPad, but what if you aren’t on the same network as your computer? Sure, advanced users could setup a VPN that allows you to remotely connect to your home network, but what about average users? How would you access your computer from anywhere in the world? With LogMeIn Ignition for iOS, you can do just that. Just log in with your LogMeIn account and it will handle everything. Within seconds, you will be connected to your home computer without having to setup a VPN, get an static external IP address, or use tools like DynDNS.
LogMeIn Ignition leverages their sophisticated remote software which connects two computers together without a VPN. We’re reviewed LogMeIn for Mac before on Mac.AppStorm and LogMeIn Ignition for iOS works just as seamlessly with an interface that’s easy to use on a touch screen.
LogMeIn for iOS allows me to remotely manage my home server and home computer from literally anywhere. I’m able to perform software updates, launch applications, and much more. It’s great when you need to find a specific file that you forgot to take with you.

Poor Microsoft. After Apple jumpstarted the PDA craze with the Newton, Microsoft’s Windows Mobile became one of the most used mobile operating systems on PDAs and then smartphones for the first part of the 21st century. Fast forward to 2007, though, and Apple once again got the upper hand with iPhone. Today, iOS is much more popular than Windows Mobile, and even the new Windows Phone 7 has struggled to gain marketshare.
Since Microsoft is primarily a software company (they even makes software for Mac OS X), it’s almost surprising that they’ve never made a mobile version of their popular Microsoft Office suite for competing mobile operating systems. That has now changed, as Microsoft has finally brought OneNote to the iPhone. OneNote is Microsoft’s often-overlooked notetaking app that’s included with Office 2010 for Windows, and now with OneNote for iPhone you can take your notes on the go just like you could with a Windows Phone 7 device. We’re going to take a tour of OneNote’s features and see if it’s time to switch notetaking apps.
