9-Toolbox in Review – Convenience at its best

9toolbox1Rather than calling 9-Toolbox “an” app, I would consider this a collection of apps; grouped together into one icon on the Home Screen of my iDevice, and allowing me to access nine different applications, all with different functionalities.

I kind of like this idea a lot; I really hate to have to search through many pages on my Home Screen to look for that particular app (although this will change with iPhone OS 3.0, but in the meantime it’s a pain). I now know that I only need to look for this particular app, and I can have access to “eight” useful utilities.

SaveMyDocs in Review – An Interesting Solution

savemydocs1If you’re one of those brain sucked zombies that views the iDevice platform as religious zealots do, then there is absolutely nothing wrong with it at all. It is complete. It is whole.

If you are of more sober mind and thought, you realize that while it is an amazing system that has pushed the limits of mobile devices, there is still much to be desired. Things such as cut-and-paste and the lack of flash animation while browsing are things that need to be addressed. One other issue is the inability to download files from your safari browser. This is where SaveMyDocs comes in.
