review-appbox-main

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.

Apps to Replace your iDevice’s Preinstalled Applications

ipod-stock-screen1

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.

JotNot in Review – Digitizing Your daily Documents Diligently

jot-not-review1

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.

Convertbot now FREE for a limited time

convertbot_previewFor many, some of the most useful apps on the iDevice are ones that convert one form of measurement/unit into another. If you’re one of these users, then this post will definitely be of interest to you. Convertbot, a conversion app developed by Tapbots, is now FREE for a limited time. Long considered one of the best in the genre, Convertbot offers a unique and user friendly interface while supporting more than 400 units for conversion.

Convertbot is a unit conversion robot. Convert currency, length, mass, time and much more in an exciting new way! Converting numbers will never again be a mundane task. In addition to its innovative interface, our robot is smart enough to convert to and from mixed units. Are you 5 foot 9 inches tall? Other converters require you to convert that to 5.75 ft in your head before being able to enter it. Convertbot allows mixed units like Foot + Inches, Pounds + Ounces, and more!

At its current price (FREE), Convertbot could be that indispensable app all users should have on their iDevice. Hurry though, as the developer has stated that it will only last for a very limited time.

HideHere – for when you just got to blot it out

Preview-Utilities-HideHere-01

Don’t ask me what I meant, I just pounded the keyboard and a title popped up on the screen. What I do know is that developer sonson made this unique app to work extremely well with photos. So, while candiding about the city with your respectable 3GS camera, you have a backup plan in case any of your photos require discretionary measures. In Japanese, the blurring effect is called モザイク or mosaic, but in English, I cannot think of the name. Anyway, (cue the jingle) – there’s an app for that.
