Readdledocs – Document and File Management Solution

Available In: App Store       Price: $9.99  

ReaddledocsInterestingly, after writing a review about iDownload, and reading and responding to a reader’s comment, I began to consider what it would be like to tap into the possibility of using the iPhone as a mobile storage utility. First, I explored Air Sharing, since I downloaded it for free a few months ago, but never actually setup the program. I was impressed with its ease of use, but was disappointed that only WiFi access was available. Upon reading that Readdledocs supported 3G or EDGE connections as well, I became further intrigued.

Similar to Air Sharing, upon opening Readdledocs, you can view your files and file folders available on your iPhone. When you open a file, the document appears on screen, and the application supports many file formats including the common MS Office file types and PDF files. There is an extensive PDF manual that comes with the program that effectively explains all of the features that come with this program. There are a lot of bells and whistles included (reading ebooks, iDisk access, and exchanging files with other users), but I will stick to the ones that mattered to me the most. In addition to the iPhone’s storage, your purchase of Readdledocs comes with a 512 MB of online storage where you can keep more files of your choosing. A web browser is also included for you to download documents directly into Readdledocs. For an extensive list of features, check out their website. [Read more…]

Apple Allowing 3rd Party Browsers into App Store?

Apple I found this to be an interesting development! It seems that in the last day or so, Apple has begun allowing 3rd party browsing applications into the AppStore. Apparently, these type of applications were not approved in the past due to “duplicating functionality.” However, it seems that someone has changed their mind because applications dating back as far as October are now being approved and added to the App Store. Gizmodo explains a couple of the new applications; [Read more…]

Search 1.0

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

Search Search is an application that allows you to search for keywords in your Mail, SMS, Notes, Contacts and even on the web. When you open Search, you will notice a lower menu bar with the options; Mail, SMS, Notes, Contacts and Web. At the top of the screen is a Search bar. You can select any of the options in the lower menu bar and then use the search bar to search within that application. The thing that I like about this application is that once it has found an entry you can then select it to see the full Email, SMS message, Note, Contact etc. The Web option will search Google keeping you in the application instead of directing you to Safari so…that is also nice.

Hahlo 3.0 – Legendary Edition

Hahlo 3.0 With Twitter becoming more popular every day, there seems to be more and more ways to tweet. Hahlo (no idea how to pronounce it) has been around for quite a while but now there is Hahlo 3. Although it’s in beta testing, you can become a tester pretty easy. Just email beta@hahlo.com to signup. The new version organizes menus better and even has a nice popup for more menu choices. Looks like another feature is the ability to search. The timeline does something I wish other Twitter clients like twhirl and Twinkle did; [Read more…]
