Back in the middle of July, when third party applications were first available for download to the iPhone, I wrote a piece praising Alex Kac of WebIS for being upfront about why a planned iPhone version of his well-known Pocket Informant was not yet available for the iPhone. In a post on the WebIS blog, Alex made it clear, that he would rather take the time to do the job properly then rush an application to market. I immediately expressed my respect for in his decision. In light of the fact that firmware 2.0 should never have been released due to its high degree of bugginess and my numerous experiences with applications which didn’t get their act together until after a number of updates, my opinion that Alex was correct in his decision was reinforced more than once.
More than six months later I still have deep respect for Alex’s choice. But I will say… it has already been six months and that is an eternity in the fast-moving world of iPhone applications!

Out just a few weeks, Iconic Notes, which takes an unusual and useful approach to iPhone note organization, has received yet another update.
This time it includes–
-the ability to add lines or squares to the notepaper’s background
-improved color pickers
-the ability to access note settings while in landscape
-increased control when settings images as icons.
A huge update? No. Then again, Iconic Notes has only been out a few weeks and it is already up to version 1.3.
Now that is impressive.
iFog is one of those “special effect” apps that bring cool effects to your iPhone. In this case when you blow into the iPhone’s mic the screen fogs up. You can then use a finger to write, draw shapes etc. It’s a cool effect that takes you back to childhood when you used to play on cold days.
And when you are done you can shake your phone to clear it off.
In addition, you can
Change backgrounds: Switch between our themed, pre-loaded backgrounds, your own photos stored on the iPhone, or take a new picture and use it as a background.Share: use iFog to share fogged up messages using our email functionality! Just write something on your fogged up screen and select ’email’ from the main menu.
iFog is silly but fun and… is free right now so go grab it HERE.
There is no question that we most innovative RSS reader currently available in the act store is newsstand. It’s a full featured RSS reader whose interface is different than any other currently available. While you can use it as a standard linear newsreader, when you turn it to landscape it actually transforms itself into a newsstand which you can then flick through as if looking through a shelf of newspapers or magazines.
Newsstand takes the experience of quickly accessing your feeds and reading them from utilitarian to enjoyable. More than anything else it stands out because it actually makes use of the iPhone’s innovative interface. It has a terrific set of standard features such as — automatic feed discovery, integration with Google blog search, the ability to organize your feeds into folders, and integrated browser for reading full items within the app itself and the ability to share articles via e-mail or delicious.com. And the interface adds so much to the experience of using it.
While this is all well and good, though, the app was removed from iPhone after my initial review for one specific reason —
I love the Google Mobile App now that it is juiced with voice search. Quite frankly, it never ceases to amaze me that I can bring my iPhone to my ear, say what it is I am looking to find, and the app finds it. I can’t even do that on my Mac!
Google just revealed that they hid a few Easter eggs in the settings menu. While MacWorld is the suggested venue for something/s to b revealed they went ad shared one today.
Go to the settings menu, use one finger to "pull up" the screen a bit and use another to rub the space below "About". After a bit a previously hidden ‘Bells and Whistles’ selection appears. While it isn’t a huge deal, adding new theme colors, new sounds (monkeys and chickens and Google Oh my!), a live waveform when you speak, and the option to open links in the app itself rather than Safari, it is kinda neat to discover something new in an already familiar app.
I can’t wait to see what MacWorld reveals!
If I had to choose just one productivity app it would, of course, be Evernote. While not without it’s flaws, (for example, only specific types of text can be edited, the method they use for local storage is cumbersome, and they are the only company who have, consistently not responsed to my emails), Evernote is still the most powerful productivity tool around. The fact that it is
–flexible; you can use the iPhone app to take text, picture, voice notes and more. You can use the geolocation power of the iPhone to tag pictures.
–"cross-platform"; it works with mac, windows, windows mobile and more
— employs the "hybrid-web": data is stored on the web and locally and the two are kept in sync.
–ever evolvong; it adds powerful new functionality, such as the recent update brought "universal file sync" and expanded the type of files it can handle to a remarkable extent.
all combine to make Evernote a highly effective app that uses cutting edge technology AND really worlks.
I recently received an email from Evernote, the subtext of which suggests that the focus of Evernote’s evolution over the next year will be in areas other than the iPhone app. Because Evernote is an overall system, however, changes anywhere in the Evernote environment may potentially improve it’s use and functionality everywhere. Among the coming advances–
