Instapaper 3.0 is Here!

By far my favorite iOS app has been updated. Instalinks to Twitter and Facebook, but most of all the best reading app for long form journalism on the App Store.

Love, love, love it.

On My Way to iPhone Organizational Bliss

leave a comment

Starting to love iOS 4, so many things to love, so hard to choose. But the first item on my list is iOS 4′s new folders feature. So many apps on my iPhone and everything has been spread over several pages. Now, it’s all on my home screen in a nice little folder.

Twitter Blog: Twitter for iPhone

leave a comment

Pretty cool feature on the new Twitter for iPhone.

Something worth noting is that you don’t need a Twitter account to enjoy this application. Browsing trends, reading Top Tweets, finding popular users, and checking out public tweets geographically nearby are all possible immediately upon download.

No account necessary to enjoy Tweetie, er… Twitter for iPhone and iPod Touch. Sweet!

My Spark Radio Review is now up at Macworld.com. I love Spark Radio. It’s still on my iPhone and my iPad and I use it nearly every day. Great app for streaming audio.

Billings Touch Review @ Macworld.com

My Billings Touch Review is up at Macworld.com.

This slick little app offers a complete time billing and invoicing package from the comfort of your iPhone or iPod touch. I continue to use this app, even weeks after I finished writing the review.

Audubon Guides for iPhone Review Up @ Macworld.com

leave a comment

My Audubon Guides for iPhone Review is now up at Macworld.com.

While I won’t be giving up my copy of iBird Pro for Audubon’s Bird program, these Audubon apps offer more options for those who explore outdoors, including field guides for trees, plants, and mammals. All are great tools for helping you discover new species and figure out what you’re seeing in the wild or your own backyard.

Wise choice. Better yet, add downloading and put it on the iPad and Netflix has a killer deal.
