There have been jailbreak apps that change fonts before but for the 4.x firmware I am liking an app called BytaFont. It’s free and there are a lot of fonts available with more being added all the time. Some are a little crazy but some are sweet. You can even have different fonts in different areas of your device. Here’s a list of all the areas: [Read more...]
The Realtor.com iPhone app is great. You can drive around and look for houses for sale using the location based search. There are a ton of great features and it’s easy to use. I remember when I first installed the app I went straight to my iPad to see if there was a version for it. At the time, there was not but now there is! It looks so great on the iPad and it makes great for sitting on the couch with my wife and looking for a new home. The app is free to download so check out the screenshots below and then go download it! [Read more...]
If you’re into photography on your iPhone or iPad then you’re going to like this app. Diptic starts you off with 19 different layouts to choose from and then let’s you insert photos using the camera, camera roll, photo library or even Flickr & Facebook. What makes the app great is the ability to customize your pictures. You can zoom and pan around each picture to get it cropped just right. You can also flip and rotate them. Even more, there’s effects and borders. I like to combine this app with Instagram for the ultimate effects. I’ve posted a video below to give you a look at some of the features and check out their Flickr photo pool for example pics. [Read more...]
Instagram is by far my new favorite image sharing/networking app! I love everything about the application… I love that it will share images to multiple places at once (Twitter, Facebook, Email, Flickr, Tumblr, Foursquare and Posterous), I love the photo filters… they are some of the best I have seen, I love that the networking part of the app is fun and easy to use, I love how well designed the overall application is and I love that it is free! :)
I recently installed this program on my work computer and it’s working great! This program goes above and beyond just printing to your printer. First I need to explain that this is not an app that is installed on your iPhone or iPad but is installed on your Mac. It basically shares your existing installed printers and makes them available from printing by your iPhone or iPad through the built in AirPrint feature. We have a big Savin C3535 printer/copier/scanner and it worked with no problems. [Read more...]
My son loves to do puzzles so I thought I’d check out this app for the iPad that lets you create your own puzzle from a picture you provide. First, you start off by picking the picture you want to use. You can choose from any picture in your saved pictures or the ones you sync to your iPad. Once you’ve selected your image, you can choose between 4 different size puzzle pieces. You can also change the background color or image from the setup button. Now that you’re ready you can hit the start button and start putting together the puzzle. As soon as you hit start, a timer begins counting how long it’s taking you. You can swipe back and forth through the pieces along the bottom and, just like a real puzzle, it’s easier to start with the border pieces. You can pinch and zoom on the picture and workspace to see better and there is a preview button, which I’d call a cheat button, because it allows you to see the finished picture dimmed in the background. After playing or finishing the puzzle you can save the game or the entire picture and send to Facebook and Twitter or email it. [Read more...]
This is one of the best inventions for the iPhone. They are little accessories that plug into your headphone jack and dock to protect them from water & dust. They also work in the iPad and iPod touch. Check out my video and pictures below. They are just $9.95 for the set plus shipping and can be purchased at icorkz.com. I recommend them and will be putting them the rest of my devices. [Read more...]
Normally this app is $4.99, but today (03-16-11) it’s on sale for just $0.99. It currently has 181 effects and filters and has some tools like rotate and crop. You can also combine effects for even more vacations. Some of the better known effects include Sepia, TiltShift, Posterize, Blur and the list goes on and on. I also like the many options you have in sharing your photos. Not only can you save it to your iPad but you can share it via Flickr, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter or email. Check out the screenshots and video below and make sure to grab it quick before the sale ends. [Read more...]
As suspected, the iOS 4.3 update was released today. If you are looking to upgrade to 4.3… you can plug your device into your computer, head over to iTunes and select the “Check for Update” option. This will allow you to update your device to iOS 4.3. Below is Apple’s official changelog for 4.3.
Remember: If you are jailbroke and want to keep your jailbreak… hold off on updating to iOS 4.3. We will let you know when there is a new jailbreak out. The Dev-Team says that the wait shouldn’t be too long because @i0n1c has a 4.3 untether ready. We’ll keep our eye out. [Read more...]
I’ve always wanted the WeatherIcon hack for my iPad but it never works. I looked into it again and found that part of the problem is that the iPad doesn’t have the Weather app from Apple like the iPhone does. After looking around in some forums I found out how to get it working. Here’s the steps I took using an iPhone 4 and a 1st gen iPad. [Read more...]
If you purchased a 1st generation iPad in the last two weeks… you may qualify for a $100 refund per Apple’s policy (see below). This is due to the fact that yesterday, Apple dropped the price of the 1st gen iPads by $100.

To receive the refund or credit you must contact Apple within 14 calendar days of the price change.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Keynote from yesterday’s iPad 2 Event, you will want to check out the video below. It is a recap video of the first year of the iPad and the impact is has had on the medical field, schools, autistic children and just people in general. Be warned, it’s kind of a tear jerker. You can check it out below.
Apple has posted the keynote for the iPad 2 Event. All 71 minutes and 21 seconds is viewable below. So, grab some popcorn and M&M’s (seriously guys, if you haven’t had M&M’s in your popcorn you are missing out), sit back and enjoy the keynote!
