When it comes to database management there’s no question in my mind that FileMaker is one of the best companies out there. A little over a year ago, I reviewed their app Bento for the iPhone and thought it was a great tool for both seasoned databasers and newcomers looking to simplify and better organise their lives. Well recently, the folks at FileMaker have released FileMaker Go catered to those seasoned users for all 3 iOS devices.
I’ve waxed poetic in the past about my love for “pick up and play” titles. So far that has not changed. Devices like the iPhone are great for short burst of gaming sessions, be it at home, work or during daily commutes. Luckily for me, the folks over at Magic Cube have nailed it down with their latest title Infect Them All.
For the past 3 years, Readdle has grown to become one of the most successful developers of business applications for the iPlatform. Today marks their 3 year anniversary and they are celebrating with all of you by giving away 1 of 3 iPads and selling all their iDevice apps for only $0.99 (48 Hour sale). That’s right, you can now pick up some great productivity apps like Take A Note, ReaddleDocs (both iPhone and iPad) and Scanner Pro for only a buck.
I’ve been looking for some new games to enjoy on my iPad. There are a fair amount out there but I’ve also noticed that many are simply iPad versions of original iPhone titles (aka ports). I wanted something new.
“What if you could transform lead into gold? Or distil the essence of life itself?…”. That’s the opening line in the description for Master of Alchemy HD. As far as openers go, that one is definitely an attention grabber. Using the practices and methodology of medieval days gone by, you’re tasked with taking on the Mechanologists and bringing alchemy to supremacy.
Twitepad is a Twitter client designed for your shiny new Jesus tablet, made to maximize what you can see and do on the popular social networking service. It offers column after column of content (similar to what you’ve seen in apps like TweetDeck) allowing you to keep up to date on all your twitter content in one fell swoop. Read on to see if i can sum up my experience in 140 or less.
One of the first things I thought the iPad would be good for was reading my PDFs. Whether it’s work or personal, I have a lot of manuals, paperwork and magazines in PDF format and hate not being able to have them on me at all times. Readdle is no stranger to the App Store. Having already seen great success with their iPhone apps (including the very popular ReaddleDocs for the iPhone) I was extremely pleased to see that they were remaking their premier document reading app for the iPad .
Back in March I reviewed Office² for the iPhone. It was a great app that provided me with all the office tools that I used on a regular basis – word documents and spreadsheets. And recently I had the opportunity to review the latest creation from developers ByteSquared, Office² HD. As expected it’s a remake of their popular iPhone app, developed specifically for the iPad.
One of the pitfalls of any PC or Mac is usable screen space. It’s not always practical to add another monitor to your setup and in some cases, you just don’t have the room. Thankfully, with Avatron Software’s Air Display (developers of popular storage app Air Sharing) you can turn that pretty new iPad into an on-the-spot extension of any display within seconds.
To state the obvious, my latest post (for the app-development tool DAPP) was officially my 100th review here for TouchMyApps. As such, I decided that I’m gonna have a damn party. Now I know that I’m not the first to hit that milestone and of course I won’t be the last but that isn’t gonna stop me from having a little fun.
So to start things off, I thought I would answer a question. As I’ve been pushing out reviews, one of the questions that I get asked most was “what are your favorites?”. Well I decided to finally answer that. Having said that, here are my 10 current favorite apps/games out of the last 100 I’ve reviewed.
With all the apps that I’ve used and/or reviewed, it’s given me a bit of an itch to try my hands at designing one myself. One major thing that has been holding me back is just figuring out where and how to start. Luckily for me (and those in the same boat) developers Froggie have put together Dapp. Described as a “rapid application development tool”, Dapp will help you design your vision as well as generate actual iPhone code from your mock ups.
