Who doesn’t love music videos? We were all teenagers once, rocking out to MTV and VH1 as we watched songs from our favorite artists unfold in an artistic drama on the screen.
For a very short while, Apple had a section where you could watch free music videos on iTunes, but this was quickly replaced by paid downloads, leaving a void for free music video content for Apple fans. Vevo HD fills this void for iPad owners and brings a ton of great music videos for music fans of all types, no big downloads or expensive purchases necessary. Today we’ll go over the app’s features and interface and discuss whether or not you should download it.
If you’re reading this from the U.S., the fact that you might be doing so from a Verizon iPhone is big news. Many Apple fans have waited not-so-patiently for four long years for this opportunity and customers of other carriers are no doubt licking their lips wondering when their turn will come.
Now that the Verizon iPhone is officially in the wild, what effect did it have on the market? How are other carriers responding? Has someone hacked it yet? Today we’ll take a brief look at a world where Verizon iPhones exist.
This is a real life story of my experience working at an Apple Reseller before a major shopping holiday.
It was a few days before a major shopping holiday and we had a huge supply of iMacs, Macbooks, and iPods in our store. It was the perfect time for a holiday robbery, with thieves being able to steal a huge amount of valuable computers. Sure, we had an alarm, but alarms aren’t foolproof. We didn’t want to take a chance with so much product on the line. We also didn’t want to spent hours watching a surveillance camera in hopes we would catch someone breaking in.
We wanted something that would alert us if it detected motion. We wanted something portable enough to run on a few laptops or connect to our current security camera system. We turned to an app called iCam. iCam allowed us to connect several Macbooks to iCams software, giving us access to a live video stream from anywhere in the world.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Coin Pirates. The developer describes Coin Pirates as a coin pusher game which drop coins and gain treasures. Treasure-trove on the pirate ship! Drop coins and spin the reel, then get tons of treasures!!
Some treasures are for collection, but some are special and not for collection… It’s a secret until you play game and drop it.

Recently, we looked at the our favorite apps from Macworld followed by a post on the future of the Expo. Today we’ll wrap up this series with a post on some of our favorite hardware accessories that made an appearance at Macworld 2011.
Many of the accessories were quite useful, but even more interesting to us were all of the bizarre ideas inventors have come up with. From iPad jackets to cases for using your iPhone underwater, this post has it all.
We’re going to be kicking off a new series next week, called “Ask the Editor”. This will run a few times each month, and give you a chance to submit questions to be answered by our editorial team (and a few expert writers, if we need some assistance!)
Whether you have a question related to iPhone apps, accessories or hardware problems, I’d really love to hear it! I’ll do my best to answer a series of diverse questions that will be interesting for everyone.
Without further ado, here’s a quick form to submit your question for next week’s post. Hopefully you’ll be seeing my response up on AppStorm soon. Thanks for contributing!
When it comes to iPhone games, they all pretty much fall into two broad categories: Games you can play on the go, and immersive games that take a while to play.
Shuzzle falls into the play-on-the-go category, because it’s not only easy to pick up and play, but it’s easy to turn off as well. So is this game worth the 99 cent entry fee? Hop in after the jump to find out.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting DanceSteps. The developer describes DanceSteps as follows: DanceSteps allows you to experiment with and finally learn the basic steps of a dance by using your iPhone or iPod Touch. It achieves this with a very simple user interface and with provided high quality rhythm-tunes that can help you learn the steps even easier.
Useful information and tips are provided for each dance, like how partners must hold each other, on which foot body weight should be, etc.

As you know, the AppStorm team just returned from our very first Macworld Expo. To us, this was the stuff of legend. In years past we had spent Macworld glued to our computer monitors, taking in every scrap of information from bloggers making live posts about the newest developments from the world of Apple.
However, we soon found out that the atmosphere had changed dramatically from previous expos. The massive and legendary event that we had seen and heard from afar has been replaced by something else. Nearly every developer, exhibitor, and attendee we spoke with throughout the week talked about the change that had taken place.
Is Macworld a shadow of what it once was? Is the conference on a downward spiral? What will the future hold? We’ll discuss all this and more below.
Have you ever wished you could access any computer you need from the comfort of your iPad on the couch, or from your iPhone in a park, all with the same simplicity of using a native iOS app? iPads and iPhones are powerful on their own, but you still can’t do everything from them. Whether you’re needing to change network settings on your work computer or start a movie download on your home computer, your iOS device just can’t do it on its own.
Since the early 2000’s, VNC (Virtual Network Computing) technology has been widely available for most mainstream operating systems to let you remotely login to your computer and use your programs and data without being in front of it. The latest wave of powerful smartphones and mobile devices have sparked an increasing interest in using your computer remotely, and the App Store currently contains many VNC apps for iPhone and iPad.
There’s only one problem. Most VNC apps make you drag the remote mouse cursor around, treating your iPad as a giant laptop touchpad. That’s where Screens comes in. This new VNC app from Endovia aims to bring the best of the iOS touch interface and VNC together to make your desktop feel like a native iOS app. Best of all, it’s a universal app so you can use the same app on your iPad and iPhone. Let’s take a look and see if this is the app that can make remote computing easier for you.
