As everybody knows from their own experience, thinking is an extremely chaotic process. And understanding the big picture is often very difficult, especially when trying to keep in mind all of the various bits and pieces that often don’t even seem connected in any way. Well, really smart people (a group with which I have no relation) have dreamed up of a special class of software to help us poor sods get our minds in order. That class is dubbed “mind mapping”, and is now available for the iPhone.
Been on the look out for an excellent app that will keep all your sensitive data safe from prying eyes, and one that won’t break the bank either? Look no further then as Agile Web Solutions’ 1Password application is now FREE (limited time offer). Mac users will likely be familiar with this immensely popular OSX utility that manages and safely stores your online passwords and personal data.
1Password will securely store your important information and can automatically log you into websites with a single tap. There’s no need to remember the username, password, or even the website address. With the ability to save and sync text notes, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information, everyone from Macworld to Apple itself loves 1Password!
Previously at $7.99, this Pro version of 1Password for the iPhone/iPod Touch will certainly come in handy, especially if you’re tired of manually entering username/passwords into mobile safari’s webpages. Needless to say, this is a superb deal that shouldn’t be missed.

Do you want to know how many kilometers is in a 100 miles? Or how much 100 euro is in US dollars tonight? Or how many days are left until Valentine’s day? Well, there’s an app for that. Too often, you’ll find these tools available as individual downloads, hence using up precious icon space on your iDevice. But not always! Introducing AppBox Pro, the place to go to for all those things you do on your iPhone once a year.
There’s no arguing that push notifications have been among the most sought after features on the iPhone; upon release, the flood gates pretty much opened up and now there are many push apps. One of the biggest features that I was waiting for was push for email. There are a handful of push mail apps out there and among them, Simon Patarin’s is one of the best.
Way before the iPhone, I had the misfortune of owning a *censored* WM PocketPC. I shudder when I remember the problems I had using it and luckily (probably) it was stolen only about a year after buying it. One thing I was sure about was that all my private info was safe since I used eWallet (yep, this app has been around for awhile) to store it. After getting my iPhone, I immediately started browsing the App Store for a PIM application and was relieved to find that my good old friend, eWallet has been resurrected for hallowed use on the Jesus Phone.
A favourite desktop download/file sharing tool has made its the downhill trek to the App Store, and for the right glint of the dime. Dropbox is free and will allow you to access 2GB worth of files between devices such as a Mac, Linux, or Windows computer and now, the iDevice.
In the Dev’s own words, dropbox is: “the easiest way to sync your files online and across computers, and share them with people”.
Groups: Drag & Drop Contacts Management in Review – Assigning groups is as easy as one, two, drag, drop
Hola, folks! Everybody knows that the iPhone’s stock contacts app is a load of pig’s poo. No field grouping, no mass sms, and no e-mail. Sometimes, even finding that one required phone number is next to impossible, even with the spotlight search. Don’t you wish it was as easy as one, two, three? Well, Guided Ways Technologies Ltd. (what a long name) have gone and done it: made it easy for plain folks like us to navigate our contacts. Presenting, Groups: Drag & Drop Contacts Management (an even longer name, sheesh!).
I know who you are. You are one of two people. Person number one has an unjailbroken iPhone and really despises the included Stock and Weather apps. He wishes to jailbreak his sacred device, but cherishes it too much to place the warranty at risk. So, how does he deal with apps that he never uses and cannot hide or remove? Well, he just leaves them on the last page of his iPhone/iPod Touch, thinking that he could forget about them forever. Think again. Person number two, on the other hand, has jailbroken it and is really happy he did so because now with SBSettings installed, he can hide the unwanted Voice Recorder app. After hiding those nasty preinstalled apps, you replaced them with better alternatives. Right? Don’t fret. Regardless of which person you are, the applications you will see in this post will make you wonder why Apple didn’t include these instead when they shipped the iDevice.
A little while ago I reviewed an app called DocScanner. Although I liked the idea of the app, I was less than impressed with the quality and control of the output. Today I had the pleasure of reviewing a competing product named JotNot from developers MobiTech 3000. Rather than do a side by side comparison I decided to review this app on its own merits and let you decide how you feel in the end.
It’s the end of August and summer is coming to an end (sob). Soon, students across the United States and other parts of the world will be sucked back into the thing they dread most: school. But do not despair. With your iPod Touch (or iPhone) in hand, you can download the following applications that could very well make your transition into the school year much more bearable.
