One of the things that I have greatly appreciated about my iPhone is the fact that I still have held onto my unlimited data plan since I first signed up. It still rubs me the wrong way how much you have to pay for smartphone plans now days. I get the fact that cell phone companies have to charge more because they are subsidizing the phone, but there has got to be a better solution.
I have always thought that VOIP could somehow challenge these big, corporate cell companies and make themselves competitive. When Google Voice came out, it looked like they might be able to do this. But as we have learned over the past couple of years, VOIP doesn’t look like it is ready to be a player just yet. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t developers out there that are creating some cool apps for it. Outside of Google Voice, one option is SendHub. Let’s take a look at it after the jump. (more…)
The App Store has way too many translator apps to do a first-timer any good. There are good ones like Google Translate and iTranslate, but others are either uglier than these two or buggy. Ever since it released, and especially after the iPad version debuted, I’ve used Google Translate as my main app for trying to speak in another language. It’s simple, accurate most of the time, has audio pronunciation and a lot of languages, and I’ve not had any major issues with it. Yet there’s still something more to look for in a translator.
I was searching around the other day for a new app to fill the void and after a few hours of browsing on and off, I came across Mutant Milk’s Language. Now, if there’s ever a way to get an app that functions well and has a truly well-designed user interface, I’ll go for it. With Language, the case is such. You’re probably still wondering if it’s worth the money, so why don’t we take a deeper look? (more…)
Voice modification apps are always good for a few laughs. They allow the toughest of men to sound like squeaky wimps and the littlest of girls to sound big and scary.
Today we’re going to take a look at VoiceMod. An app that just may be the best voice-modification app around and the most fun than you’ve had in years on your iPhone.
Voice augmentation has never been easier or more fun than with Voices for iPhone. With the push of a button, you can apply one of the 27 high quality audio filters. Choose from filters like Chipmunk, Underwater, or even Vocoder. Fool your friends with the Witness voice filter or impress party goers with some of the other interesting filters.
The newest update of Voices adds support for the iPhone 4’s Retina Display, adding higher resolution graphics. It also greatly improves the speed of applying audio effects. In the older version, it would take around twenty to thirty seconds for each filter. In iPhone time, thirty seconds can feel like an eternity. The new version only takes five seconds at most to apply each filter.
