Adobe has finally released Adobe Reader for iOS, an app that has was first introduced to Android phones nearly a year and a half ago. But as the saying goes, better late than never. As the name suggests, it’s predominantly a PDF reader without all the thrills; you won’t have the boat load of features that’s found in other apps, namely Goodreader and PDF Expert (both of which I use extensively). What is unique to Adobe’s app is its ability to open and view password protected PDF files, access Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management files, as well as encrypted PDFs, up to AES256. If you are already using some of the more robust PDF readers/annotators out there, you’ll probably want to skip Adobe Reader, but for Free, it may still be worth checking out.

They are: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.

“While competitors are still struggling to catch up with our first iPad, we’ve changed the game again with iPad 2,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’re experiencing amazing demand for iPad 2 in the US, and customers around the world have told us they can’t wait to get their hands on it. We appreciate everyone’s patience and we are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”
Hong Kong, Korea and Singapore will have to wait until April for the iPad 2 to become available, with even more countries to be included in launch in the coming months. Full press release after the gap.
I know many of you were left with a VLC shaped hole in your iOS souls when the original developers of the open source media player filed a complaint to Apple and had it removed. And all that for a technical inconsistency with the GPL license! Still, life moves on and other developers have moved in to grab at the now empty spot. Some time ago I reviewed AVPlayer (TMA Review) – quite a strong contender for the crown of universal multimedia players on the iPhone. Most recently I had the opportunity to take a nab at DOTORI PLAYER, a similar all-in-one media player app from a Korean developer.
Google’s surprisingly accurate translation service, first seen on the iPhone back in 2008 as a web app, is now here as a standalone app for the iDevice. Google Translate accepts voice input for 15 languages, and like the web app, it can translate a word or phrase into one of more than 50 languages. Even more impressive, you can listen to the translations spoken out loud in 1 of the 23 supported languages. There’s also a handy zoom feature that enlarges the translated text to fit the entire screen. Definitely a useful feature if you’re making your way around a foreign country and in need of directions and what not. As with all Google apps, this one’s free and well worth your while.

While certain Canadian icons such as RIM and maple syrup slide in popularity, Sonomax’s unique custom earphone, and XEquals’ BlueSLR, a gotta-have-it dongle that turns your iPod touch/iPad/iPhone into a remote shutter release for your camera, are hoisting the Canadian flag to new technological heights. For me, the latter rocks simple reason that: I always have my iPod touch with me, and that I’ve been looking for an integrated wireless shutter release for my camera for a long time. Considering that the BlueSLR also does GPS and a host of other things, I think that many photographers will agree that this is a revolutionary product.
Evidently, he got a nice part set from some clever kid in New York. Illegal shmelegal. Hell, I’ve got to pay some third party lending company to even get an iPhone 4 in Korea, so bugger it all. Sorry for the Flash video.
Being an Asian myself, I can say with a great deal of certainty that Asian dishes can more than hold their own with what the rest of the world can offer. There’s a reason why a good number of them are very popular in the world’s other six continents.
And as I discovered with Asian Cooking For Dummies, they’re also fairly easy to cook despite their elaborately-prepared appearances. With 60 traditional video recipes from China, India, Japan and Thailand, this easy-to-use app should make you kitchen-bound in no time.
