Did I See U - Free Dating App
Have your App Reviewed by a Professional Writer
The other day I did a review of Watch It Change, a neat little app for creating stop motion movies with your iPhone.
In my initial tests I really liked it but found that no matter how steady I tried to hold it the slight movements of my hand got in the way. I tried resting it on the table but that wasn’t perfect either.
I noticed that Watch It Change offers an Animation Stand. The purpose of it is to
make it simple to film stop-motion animations with your iPhone and the Watch It Change application that is available on iTunes.
I ordered one and it came today.

I’ve never been one to worry all that much about the wallpaper I use on my iPhone. Every now and then I change it but, overall, I tend to be inclined toward the simplist image possible, if not to an actual solid color.
Others, though, seem to put a great deal of emphasis on it. In fact, I now of at least two people who jailbroke their first generaiton iPhones last year primarily because they wanted to be able to customize not just the wallpaper but also the look of the springboard. For them there is a neat little $2 app called Endless Walls. It doesn’t do springboard customization but the wallpaper selection can’t be beat.
While I recently began using reQall on a regular basis, Jott has been a central part of my workflow for the past two years. The ability to make a call, speak for 15 seconds and either receive a transcription back or send it to someone else has been a key productivity tool for me. Best of all, it was entirely free.
Well, as they say, all good things must come to an end. To a large extent, that is what happened with Jott yesterday when it left "Beta".
We reviewed Local Eats the other day and were quite taken with it. If you are going to be eating out in one of the USA’s 50 major cities and you like good food, this is a "must have" on your iPhone or iPod touch.
Not only does it help figure out where to eat, but it makes contacting the restaurant or finding your way there as simple as tapping the iPhone’s screen.
Tonight’s update enhances performance (I didn’t find it all that laggy to begin with ) It also adds what they are referring to as "NEW COMMUNITY FEATURES". Although the actual restaurants are picked by an excellent panel (and they did an awesome job from what I can tell) you will now find user comments and be able to share your own.
I have to hand it to Audi- creating a driving game, making it free and advertising the A4 the entire time. Who needs "product placement" when the entire app IS the placement. Brilliant!
In a manner that is increasingly familiar, the A4 Driving Challenge has you hold the iPhone in landscape and uses the iPhone’s accelerometer to steer the car through a series of 5 unique courses. In this game, however, accelerating and braking are done on-screen using the "gas" and "brake" pedals. Interestingly, as the description notes, "When braking the car’s steering response improves. Use this…"
The new LinkedIn app was just released this afternoon. It allows you to
-search your contact information
-learn about people before you meet them
-keep up to date with your network
The app is free and is available now on the App Store.
Yesterday we shared news of a key update coming to reQall in the next week or so. Today we have a sneak peak at an app currently awaiting approval for release on the App Store- The Tag Show from Dove Valley Apps.
By now anyone using an iPhone has likely run a slideshow of pictures taken either on, or transfered to, their iPhone. There are, however a bazillion (that IS the technical way to say "a boatload") images floating around the web these days.
The Tag Show makes it possible to use those images to create your own custom slideshow based upon the tags you choose. For example, if you select "cars" as your tag, the app will begin a slideshow of car images from a variety of web services. Using "Corvette" gives a more specific slideshow of images tagged with Corvette.
This is being widely blogged everywhere but is definitely worth mention here… One of the biggest criticisms of the iPhone since it was initially released has been the lack of "Cut and Paste". It is apparently on Apple’s todo list (hmm, do they use OmniFocus or Things) but not high enough that we have any clue when it will be seen.
We got a small taste of how cut and paste COULD work last month with the release of MagicPad. Unfortunately the app was on and the off my iPhone in minutes since it only worked in that program AND the program lacked the iPhone’s intelligent spellcheck (something I rely on heavily).
Seems the new Open Clip project takes MagicPad’s solution and expands it significantly so that any program can use it if the developer so desires. How does it work? Check out Cali Lewis’ demo over on Vimeothe here.
As the post over on 9to5 Mac explains-
Open Clip’s solution is simple, workable and supported: essentially it saves copy you select within an area of the iPhone’s memory which can then be accessed by other apps using the Open Clip framework. And the roll call of developers planning to use and support the solution includes: Dial Zero, Twittelator, Wordpress, Cocktail, Ultralingua and more.

No longer. The update adds 50 Hi Quality Stereo Sounds, as well as a volume slider for iPod Touch Users (since the Touch does not have hardware volume controls).
It is a simple app but a nice one if you are trying to relax at the end (or even in the middle) of a long day.
