My mother loves to entertain, and when I was a kid she started keeping a guest book. Whoever visited our home would sign it, along with a little note and their address. I still like looking back at it now, because it brings up memories of family gatherings, dinner parties, and holiday celebrations. While the concept…
Everyone is afraid of sharks but who doesn't think they're wicked cool? Come on! The beasts of the sea, the killers of the ocean, the king of the water. Don't you want to know what they're like? This wonderful iPad app tells you (without any chance of getting bit).
As expected, Moleskine's app has been given a thumb's up by Apple and is now free on the App Store for iPhone and iPad. In true Moleskine style, you can write notes on your selection of paper, as well as sketch drawings; insert photos and even geotag your notes, too.
The video doesn't give much away, but Moleskine's official blog has reported they're just awaiting Apple's authorization before the app is available to download on iPhones and iPads. I presume it's some sort of note-taking app styled to look like a Moleskine, but what would you like to see? [Moleskine via Moleskinerie]
Almost a year ago, I fell in love with the Alice for iPad app. I declared it the cleverest iPad book yet and happily recommended to friends. Now I get to recommend its silly sequel, Alice in New York.
Before you go scrambling to download this $6 LetterMPress iPad app, I must warn you: it's not yet available. The developer is seeking money on Kickstarter to build a letterpress studio, so users' creations can be printed out and sent their way.
Despite all the technological advances made over the years, pilots are still frequently relying on paper maps when it comes to navigation. That's about to change though.
Victor Pauca has a genetic disorder that makes his speech development slower than other kids. So his father, Paul Pauca, along with his students at Wake Forest, made an iPhone and iPad app that helps Victor speak. It's rather inspirational.
Ooh la la! Looks like the Instapaper iOS app, one of our favorite tools, has received quite a makeover and plenty of new features in its latest update:
There's no clever functionality, no swish design—just reams and reams of vintage Japanese robots for salivating over. It's like a flipbook of otaku porn—only won't attract too many stares on public transport.
Anyone familiar with the minimalist Japanese store Muji (which has shops all around the world) will expect these three apps to be cleanly-designed and stylish. The Calendar app is my favorite, but Notebook is bound to be the digital Moleskine-equivalent.
Recently we were rather skeptical about a report claiming that a third of iPad users have never downloaded an app. Now there's confirmation that we weren't just paranoid: Nielsen, the media-survey firm behind the numbers, has posted a major correction.
I love my iPad so much that I hug it daily, but I don't think it could ever replace newspapers. After all, how could I ever use my magical gadget to murder an innocent creature?
Using the popular iOS comic book platform created by the folks at comiXology, Image Comics is bound to become a great way for us to purchase and read independent titles. The app looks great and can be downloaded for free.
There's something incredibly satisfying about watching a torpedo shoot from your battleship and crash into your opponent's submarine with a booming sound. There's something even more satisfying about watching this happen from the safety of your iPad.
