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?
