One standard has stood the passage of time and thats the ubiquitous office formats from the windows world. Being able to easily edit word, excel file on your iphone / iPad is now common place and with MobiSystems Office Suite app, even better than even Microsofts own offerings.
The Ministry of Sound have just released their own radio app for iOS allowing you to listen to their MoS offering and listening to their live weekender sets.
Glimpse brings website previews to your notification centre letting you “glimpse” at sites without having to unlock your iPhone. Finally notification centre has something to make it less nagging (at least in my case).
Theres several ways you can speed up your website, use a CDN, get a better host but none of that is going to help unless your images are properly optimised. JpegMini helps do just that, providing the optimum balance between compression, quality and clarity.
Billing itself as the best of Vine, Snapchat and Instagram combined, Nutshell makes it simple to create it a great way to share life’s special moments and all you need is three photos to get you started.
2014 was the year I started running and actually did the fabled “couch to 5k” running plan and all it took to drop a stone in weight and trim up was 20 minutes a day going up and beyond that. For kicks I’d have RunKeeper in the background so i could see my time and distances ever improving. But RunKeeper is not the only app out there.
Nothing makes for a better review than when it’s used in the real world for a practical purpose. Exactly what’s happened to me this last week. I’ve had OCR apps for my iPhone and whilst theyre fine for a quick capture, this project needed something meatier.
We make no secret here of just how much we love Blogo, the blogging app for the Mac that lets you do your blogging on your Mac and then publish to your wordpress powered blog. Yet it’s so much more than a simple type and push interface.
Back before the Amstrad PCW range of pc’s made by “business studies” group bearable I had to cut my chops on a manual typewriter and believe me there wasn’t a lot to miss when the moment you press the delete key, items deleted. Anyone reading this has probably never experienced the pain of manually counting a title so to be able to centre align. Yet there is a reason Hanx is a worthwhile app.
Trying to work out the best deals on your drink isn’t an easy business. Supermarkets know their psychology placing what “might” be the best deals on the ends of aisles but they aren’t always the best. Is that 4 pack really such a good deal per pint when compared to a multi pack. It’s all bothersome to work this out. PintSaver to the rescue.
