The mixture of touchscreen technology with features like GPS and impressive on-board cameras makes the iPhone a virtual playground for clever developers with a novel idea.
Today we’ve compiled five crazy things you can do with your iPhone using various apps. Several of these apps seem too good to be true but they all work exactly as advertised. Intrigued? Read on!
Earlier this week Apple debuted the iPad 2 (check out our coverage here), and it’s a beauty. Two cameras, a dual core A5 chip (translation: much faster) and a slimmer, lighter design all make this one hard to resist product! Not to mention that amazing Smart Cover.
However, critics can still point to a few potential disappointments. No Thunderbolt support, retina display or an SD card slot. Further, several techies, like the folks over at Gizmodo, aren’t that impressed by the new specs in comparison to other tablet products like the Motorola Xoom.
So our question today is, what do you think? The single best way to state your opinion of the new iPad is with your wallet so we want to know whether or not it’s good enough for you to drop five hundred bucks on come March 11th. Vote in the poll to tell us whether or not you plan on getting one, then leave a comment below explaining your answer.
Seems like March has snuck up on us this year, and with the announcement of the iPad 2 and the “year of the iPad 2”, it will be interesting to see what that means for portable games.
While we wait though, here are some excellent new titles that are worth playing!
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Real Piano HD Pro. The developer describes Real Piano HD Pro as a full 88-key keyboard app that brings you not only real piano sound, but also other instruments like guitar, marimba, and music box. It also brings you smoothly moving and zooming, customizable key labels, and professional tuning & transposition functionalities.

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.
