Tonight, my wife and I went to dinner with friends, one being a local radio station manager. He was telling me one of his employees was super excited about a DJ app that was released recently. He said the guy had been waiting for the app and that I should check it out. Well, looking for videos for tonight’s Friday Night Movie Night I just happened to run across the same app and I’m telling you, from the video, it looks like it’s worth the $19.99 their asking for it. I’m gonna try hard to get a promo code for this app and get a video review of all it’s features. Being such an expensive app, you need to know what it can do before you buy. Here’s their promo video which is pretty convincing if you’re into this kinda stuff.

My wife and I like to play a game called “I liked it better when…” Whenever we see a movie, commercial, or something that seems to be duplicating a prior idea, we’ll say “I liked it better when…” and insert the name of the idea that’s being copied. In the case of Readdle’s Take a Note, I liked it better when it was called Evernote.
Almost eerily identical to Evernote, the opening user menu of Take a Note gives you options to add a text note, an audio note, a drawing note, and a photo note. All notes that are created on the iPhone are editable, sortable, and searchable. WiFi access gives you the option to transfer notes to and from your computer or other wireless enabled sources. Notes can be emailed directly from the program and the app uses your contacts list to add recipients. [Read more...]

The expected update is now out for Cycorder which includes audio. I tried it out this morning and the audio quality is really good. There’s a list of other updates in the change log in Cydia like colorized navigation buttons and minor badge fixes. But a really nice feature update is TV out supported playback. I assume that this means if you use the iPhone or iPod Touch TV Out Adapter from Apple that you can watch your videos from Cycorder on your TV. Another added feature keeps your iPhone from autolocking during recording.
Overall a very nice update and great quality. Now there just needs to be features to email or send to YouTube and it will be perfect! Leave your comments below on what other features you’d like to see

Talking Spanish PhraseBook is a handy little application that translates common English phrases into Spanish. The best part about the application is that you are able to play audio of the Spanish translation. When you open the application you will get a list of topics that include; Essentials, Travel, Accommodation, Food and Drink, Socializing, Shopping, Medical, Dates and Time, Numbers, Emergencies and Copyright Info.

For example in the Essentials topic, there are phrase such as; Do you speak English, I don’t Understand…etc. In the Accommodations topic there are four categories; Locating, Booking, Requesting and Complaints.

tt-clock is a 4-way digital clock that talks made by Jake Wolpert. When you start the application, you have to tap the screen once more in order to get to the clock. The clock is set in military time and there is no way to change that. Your iPhone/iPod Touch can be in landscape mode and upside down, or portrait mode and upside down. Either way, the digital clock will change according to the direction and it changes color according to the direction as well! Another thing I found was if you lay your device flat it will sometime go black and if you flip it over, the application will crash. If you tap the digital clock, you will hear a robotic voice telling you the time. The voice does not tell you the exact time but it [Read more...]
