Have your App Reviewed by a Professional Writer
When I woke up this morning my RSS feed indicated that over 70 new apps and an equal amount of update apps arrived in the App Store over night. That is a whole lot o’ apps and I only slept for five hours last night!!!
Sad thing was, after making my typical initial pass in which I quickly go through my new RSS posts and mark those I actually want to read, only two app were actually marked. That’s right, over 140 new or updated apps and only two caught my eye enough for me to even take a second look. How very, very, very sad…
This explains why sorting through the crApp in the App Store is getting harder and harder as each day passes.
That isn’t the only headache emerging from the App Store these days, though. We recently received an email from a developer who is continuing to run into trouble because of the way Apple is organizing the overflowing App Store… but that’s another post.

The idea is neat… create a slide show of public images recently posted to Flickr. What an interesting way to see what is going on in the world at that very moment (okay, a few seconds prior to that very moment).
If you see a cool image you want to see again in the future all you need to do is tap the screen. Neat!
If you want to share an image with someone else it is simple to grab the link and email it out. Double Neat!!!
All of which is good fun and since the feeds are public there’s no issue with copyright etc.
But this app’s icon just creeps me out…

Documents To Go is a well known productivity suite that is currently available for Windows Mobile, Palm, Blackberry and more. Having used it during my Windows Mobile days I can attest to the fact that it is an incredibly powerful suite.
Judging by the web page to the left it is only a matter of time before this powerful application suite is also available for the iPhone/Touch.
This is huge news for those of us who use our iPhone/iPod Touch for work (and judging from our recent "Apps you use most" poll there are a whole lot of us).
This is yet another step in the progression of iPhone as "new computing platform". Something tells me I will seen be able to leave home with only my iPhone even MORE often.
A description of the windows Mobile Suite follows after the jump.
Ah yes, thanks to the Cult O’ Trek life is about to imitate art (or at least TV). Kirk’s Communicator was just released this morning turning your iPhone into a virtual communicator.
It is pretty amazing to realize that with all its techno-goodies, Star Trek ran from 1966 to 1969 and was cancelled after just three years due to LOW ratings. Go figure. Here we are 40 years later still watching the various runs of the show and creating gadgets and gizmos to satisfy our Trek-addiction.
Similar to some degree to Jules Verne, Gene Roddenberry’s work of fiction is increasingly non-fiction. Sure, we can’t beam from one place to another any more than we can use a tesseract to quickly move from one location to another. We do, however, have amazingly powerful handheld devices just like (okay, kind of similar to) the tricorder.
So why not go the extra step and turn your iPhone into a tricorder. Now you can.
It took much longer than expected but Gesture, the new iPhone painting app from our friends at Big Stone Phone/Stone Designs, has finally been released.
We posted about Gesture a full two weeks ago which gives some insight into how long it may be taking for apps to make their way through whatever flawed review process Apple has put in place. I just downloaded it and cannot wait to use it a bit. While my artistic talents are more than a bit challenged, Gesture does look like a fun way to express your creativity (or lack there of).
According to the folks at Stone Design-
Gesture lets you create digital paintings from your photos. With just a little imagination, you can can make beautiful works of art. Be as rough or tight as you like as Gesture translates your movements into paint strokes using a sampled color from the photo below. Bringing a popular artistic technique from the desktop to the iPhone and iPod touch, Gesture makes creating stunning works of art a breeze for the artist and non-artist alike. Gallery Features: – View your masterpieces in landscape mode – Add and delete paintings – Share and view paintings from other Gesture users online Studio Features: – Save your painting to Photos – Play back your painting like a movie – Instantly Pointilize your photo – Zoom in for detail work – Unlimited undo – Load any image on the internet
Gesture is available now for $4.99 and can be found here in the App Store.
NEW??? Web Apps???
Aren’t they like… so 1st generation iPhone???
Okay, seriously, when I posted about how great Amazon’s web app is earlier I had no idea the new app Web Apps would be released tonight. Really.
When I saw this app released I had to get it immediately and here is why…
I love the new resident apps that are flowing into the App Store. More accurately, I love the subset of excellent new resident apps that are mixed in with all the crApp flowing into the App Store. Some are absolutely amazing. They have not only changed the way I use my iPhone but how I work, as well.
I love reQall and ToDo, Evernote and eReader, NetNewsWire and Pandora, eWallet and Twittelator Pro, WriteRoom and well, you get the picture.
But as the Amazon web app shows, there are some amazing web apps out there, as well. Lots and lots of amazing web apps in fact. Too many to go search for. Too many to keep inputting urls. Too many to sort through. And too many that can (and on my iPhone HAVE) start filling home screen after home screen.
That is where Web Apps comes in.
