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.
Most of us rely on Google Maps and Search to get through the day, and never give the choice much thought. Today we’re going to look at the Bing app for iOS and see if it’s worth switching to a new search engine.
In a world where Google is now used as a verb for searching the web, most wouldn’t consider using any other search engine. That’s why Microsoft surprised the world when it released Bing and now they’ve made it accessible even to Apple’s mobile devices with the Bing iPhone app. There’s no such thing as a perfect search engine, so we’ll take you through the Bing app so you can see what it offers and decide for yourself.
The web has become saturated with surprisingly high quality content created entirely on iPhones. Never before has a device that contains a camera merely as a secondary feature so impacted the worlds of photography and cinematography.
The question is, are these industries better or worse with the arrival of the iPhone? Is this device improving the digital world by putting multimedia-based art forms into the hands of the masses or is it critically cheapening decades of hard work from serious professionals? Let’s discuss.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting On Air. The developer describes On Air as “A simple teleprompter app for iPad. Choose font color, font size, scroll speed, background color, and toggle a 3 second countdown. On Air will smoothly scroll your script, and store as many scripts as you need. Settings are saved with each script. Coming soon: On Air for iPhone & iPod Touch. The update will include the ability to mirror text for use in a teleprompter rig, and remote control ability.”

One of the most enjoyable aspects of the iPad for me has been the richly interactive new ways it has brought to consume content. There is simply no better experience for reading the news from your favorite sources than that provided by the host of innovative iPad apps.
In order to better target our articles to our reader base, we want to know which Apple multi-touch devices you own (check all that apply). Are you dedicated (wealthy?) enough to own all of the available options or are you perfectly happy with your iPod Touch?
We’ll use this information to continue offering content that is useful and interesting to you so be sure and fill out the poll so you can be counted!
Also, leave a comment below and let us know more about the devices you own. Is your iPhone a 16 GB 3GS or a 32GB iPhone 4? We want to know!
Welcome to November, everyone!
Hope you’ve had a spooky end of October. This week, alongside unhealthy amounts of candy, we’ve been enjoying the following app store games. Take a look, give them a try, and let us know if we’ve missed any good ones!
Today we’re going to look at one of the most powerful vector illustration applications you’ll find on the App Store: iDraw. This excellent app goes well beyond providing you with a few simple brushes and gives you the power to create professional quality artwork on your iPad using many of the same tools you’re used to on a desktop computer.
We’ll go over why it’s different than the other drawing apps you’ve seen and dive into the rich feature set so you can get the full story before you decide whether or not to make the purchase.
The original Palm Pre launched with no small amount of excitement. Largely due to its beautiful WebOS platform, the Pre was instantly hailed as an “iPhone Killer” by countless tech journalists and bloggers (aren’t they all?). Even I thought this phone looked amazing. It just had so much that the iPhone didn’t (at the time). An innovative multi-tasking system, a slideout physical keyboard, cool gestures to bring up hidden menus, global search, Facebook contact syncing, and more. All of this of course came in addition to various iPhone-like features that had Apple calling their patent lawyers.
However, here we are well over a year later and the iPhone is still the king (though Android is a serious threat). Even the newer Palm Pre Plus and the Palm Pixi failed to gain the interest of consumers. Meanwhile, the horribly performing Palm, Inc. has been acquired by HP in hopes that the PC titan can revive the Palm brand. Now after a considerable period of silence, HP has launched the Palm Pre 2 along with WebOS2.
With HP’s backing, will this new Pre finally gain a considerable following and challenge the iPhone?
