Five Must Have Apps for Your iPad Air/Retina iPad Mini

Posted on Updated on

The iPad Air and Retina iPad mini are incredible devices. The 64-bit A7 processor in each is more than capable or running the absolute best mobile apps on the market today. But with over 1 million iOS apps to choose from it’s  hard to know where to start. Here is a list of five must have apps every iPad owner should download:

Flipboard (Free)

Flipboard is the best, most beautiful personal news aggregator for the iPad. Once you create an account you simply choose what type of news stories you want to read about. For example, I have chosen Sports, Travel, Technology, and Business with many more options available. You can even link your social networking accounts and view all your feeds and photos in Flipboard’s beautiful magazine like layout. There are also some new features like saving items to your own personalized ‘magazine’ for viewing later. You can easily spend hours within Flipboard and never be bored.

Netflix (Free)

While the iPad has come a long way in terms of content creation, its strongpoint is still content consumption, i.e. watching videos. If you have a Netflix subscription (and really, who doesn’t these days?) make sure to download the free iOS app. The app basically turns your iPad into a television anywhere you have an internet connection. This is great when you are on vacation, but I find myself

Five Must Have Apps For Your iPhone 5s

Posted on

One of the best reasons to own an iPhone is the App store. Apple now boasts over 1 million apps, up from 900,000 in June. Not only are these apps useful but many iOS apps are designed beautifully. While Android and their Google Play store have caught up in terms of number of apps, Apple’s App Store is still where developers take their product first.

Whether you just got your first iPhone or are just looking for new apps to bring excitement to your iOS experience, here are my 5 favorite apps for the iPhone 5s.

Tweetbot 3 ($2.99)

Tweetbot 3 is far and away my favorite 3rd party Twitter client. While the official Twitter for iPhone app received a fresh coat of paint when iOS 7 was released, it still doesn’t hold a candle to Tweetbot. Tweetbot allows for easy switching between multiple accounts by tapping on your avatar in the upper left hand corner. This works well for those that want to monitor a business’s account along with a personal account. When Tweetbot 3 was released its primarily white background bothered some users. It did bother me a bit when I would check my feed in bed with the lights off. Enter update 3.2 and Night Theme. This theme allows for optimized reading in dark situations. You can quickly change between Night Theme and the Default White theme by swiping up and down the screen with two fingers like a light switch. This is the Twitter app made for the power user but can still be enjoyed by those who just want to scroll their feed. Read the rest of this entry »

Chipotle Releases New Short Film And App Called ‘The Scarecrow’

Posted on Updated on

Chipotle has long been happy to tell anyone that will listen that they use only fresh ingredients at their restaurants. When you eat one of their burritos, rest assured you aren’t being force fed chicken or beef from large factory farms. While most of us don’t like to think about where our food comes from before we ingest it, Chiptole has put out a short film with an accompanying free iOS app, called “The Scarecrow“.

‘Ping’ App Promises To Change The Way You Think About Email

Posted on

For some time companies have been trying to come up with new ways to make email more enjoyable. Orchestra Inc. came out with a great new app earlier this year called Mailbox, which helps  clean up your inbox by using intuitive swiping gestures. Ping is looking to take things a step further and revolutionize your email habits.

Ping’s goal is to turn your emails into sleek IM- like conversations. Features include being able to see when the other person is typing and custom notifications for each contact.

The iOS app will be released on September 18th with Android and Web apps to follow. Ping will be taking reservations on a first come, first serve basis in order to not overload their servers upon launch. If you want to get your hands on the app soon after its release, head on over to their website to get yourself on their waiting list today.
