iPad Apps of the Week: Ikea, ACI Cockpit360, and More

Imgur: Imgur, everyone's favorite super simple image hosting site, has had an Android app out for about a month now. As of today, though, the app is also available for iOS users, and now nearly everyone can be just a little bit less productive, together. You can do virtually everything you'd be doing on the web: browse images, upload, and manage your account and albums. And of course, all the interactive features that make Imgur such a huge draw are in teh app in full force. You can comment and vote on other people's uploads to your heart's content. [Free]

ACI Cockpit360: Dying to get a first-hand look at some of the greatest exhibits places like the Museum of Flight, Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum, and Tillamoook Air Museum have to offer, but don't have the time or money for a cross-country flight history tour? Thanks to ACI Cockpit360, that last part won't matter in the slightest. ACI Cockpit360 gives you a 360-degree virtual tour of some of history's most famous cockpits including P51 Mustangs, 747 jumbo jets, and NASA's first space shuttle Crew Compartment Trainer (CCT-1). You can choose from over 50 aircrafts from Museum collections all across the country. [$6]


iPad Apps of the Week: Ikea, ACI Cockpit360, and More Amazon Kindle: Amazon just released a new update to its Kindle app for iOS, and it basically just told Apple to go f*** itself in the process. The Apple App Store bible absolutely forbids in-app purchases unless the company is willing to give Apple a 30 percent cut, but Amazon has finally found a way around this little speed bump: likely-soon-to-be-banned free samples.

Ikea: Ikea's messed around with augmented reality before, but this year they've really outdone themselves. With just a phone and a copy of the catalog, you can now call up a digital version of any piece of furniture and put it anywhere in your home. All you have to do is throw the catalog on the floor to set an anchor for the illusion and you're all set. [Free]
