Reader Review – Feeds


On January 31, 2009

I am I huge fan of WOiP and check it more often than any other iPhone feed by far (username: derickvaladao).  I recently bought Byline off your recommendation and really enjoyed it.  However, I started to dislike it for a number of reasons.  First, they rarely engage with their user community and updates are few and far between.  Second, their app is really slow when trying to handle a large amount of folders.

I recently went searching for a better app and stumbled across Feeds by prime31 software.  They launched their first version a while back and it wasn’t very impressive.  However, they have been updating it regularly and actively engaging with their customers to make the product better.  I purchased it last night and realized that it is better than Byline in a number of ways:

Quick Look From JAiB – Death Cab for Cutie App



Patrick over on JAiB was pretty excited about the Death Cab for Cutie app he stumbled upon. Turns out he found a great app AND a new band to enjoy.

Patrick can be a pretty critical critic when it comes to apps so when he writes…

Wow – the new Death Cab for Cutie iPhone app is very slick, very good looking, and very impressive. One of my first thoughts after discovering it tonight, is that *every* band should be producing an app like this – right away! If this isn’t a superb promotional tool then I don’t know what is…

…you KNOW it’s an app worth a look.

You can get the app HERE in the App Store.

Pocket Informant – Status Update



A number of people have asked me about the status of what it is, at least for me, perhaps most eagerly awaited out yet — Pocket Informant.

The good news is that the WebIS website is showing an introductory price of just $12.95 (as steal IMO). (Plus we’ll have some promo codes to share early on for some lucky WOiP readers.)

As far as the app itself goes, over the past few weeks I’ve had the opportunity to use a number of different builds and it’s looking terrific. There have been some snags along the way with regard to sync with Google Calendar and Toodledo but things are getting worked out and… 

JAMM Reviews 7 Cities


On January 30, 2009

My buddy Doug Goldring just posted a complete (does Doug do any other kind?) review of 7 Cities. 

As he notes-

As the title suggests, this game consists of seven cities, which you must protect.  Each city is built on a river, which provides the only access to the city and its riches.  Waves of pirates (and some other creatures associated with the pirates) try to approach and overtake the cities.  Because this is a tower defense game, your job is to build towers to stop the pirates.  Let the fun begin!

No longer!

An update to the app…

– fixes all known reliability issues
