The thing I’ve noticed about having iOS devices is that I’m always looking for ways to consolidate my life; when there’s an app that does the same thing as one of my tools, I’m eager to try it and see if it can simplify my life. That’s why Andrew (of Classics fame) and Alexa Kaz created Ruler.
To learn how fun it is to use Ruler to measure things from your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, keep reading after the fold.

In the past few years Apple’s core strategy and media coverage seem to have taken a shift from desktop computers and software suites like iLife towards the newer and more exciting field of touch-screen computing.
The iPod Nano, iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad together are a perfect picture of how much time, money and effort Apple is sinking into their new favorite technology. Since the day Apple released the iPhone, we all started dreaming about multi-touch in a place Apple hasn’t yet delivered: on our Macs.
I am a movie fanatic. There is not a week when I don’t watch at least one movie I haven’t seen before. Not to speak of all the TV shows I am following. While watching, I often have “geek moments” – those are times when I go “Oh, what’s that actor’s name?” or “What was the other recent movie this actress starred in?”
Before the time of iPhone and iPad, I had to move over to my Mac and fire up IMDB in Safari to check it out. With the IMDB app for iPad I can remain slouching on my couch and get all the information I desire. The comforts of the 21st century.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Shuzzle. The developer describes “an engaging and deceptively simple puzzle game that’s fun, interactive, and addictive. The purpose of the game is to challenge players to match shapes to colors while under the stress of a timer. The timer speeds up the longer you play making it more difficult every second. The objective In Shuzzle, is to match the center shape with one of the six surrounding shapes.”

While with almost all other apps in the productivity category you have to choose between task and time management, Pocket Informant takes an integrated approach. Read on to find out how well it works out in every day life.
Ever since rumors surfaced claiming that Apple was working on a tablet, we knew the coming of such a device would launch a new product war. Despite the looming certainty that copycats would arise, in the months following the launch of the iPad, the tablet market has remained fairly lackluster regarding viable alternatives.
However, with a few recent and quite impressive entrants, the tablet war is finally upon us.
Today we’ll look at the new BlackBerry PlayBook and the Samsung Galaxy Tab, both of which pack a feature set to rival (and top in many cases) Apple’s iconic device.
Will Apple dominate this market as they’ve done with the iPod (what’s a Zune?), or will these shiny new competitors deal a decisive blow to the iPad’s reign? You be the judge.
