Get a Free Stylus!

Not only is Soonr Scribble currently at a promotional one-time price of $3.99! (Scribble is a feature of Soonr Workplace which costs $9.95 / month) But when you buy the app the great guys over at Soonr will send you a Soonr Stylus that you can use on your iPhone and iPad. Simply visit Soonr, fill out the form and they’ll send you their insanely great stylus that works on your iPhone and iPad!

A free stylus with an app that costs $3.99, sounds good to me!

You can signup for a free trial of Soonr Workplace and experience additional features like document editing and enhanced file sharing.

So the new iPad is here, or very nearly here, and the predictable press disappointment has set in. What’s so amazing about it? The retina display is old news! We already knew all the things that were being added!

While I, personally, think that a lot of this is missing the point, I’m intrigued to find out what you would tout as the biggest new feature of the iPad?

I was impressed to learn that Apple nearly doubled the capacity of the battery in order to keep the running time the same with 4G and a Retina display, but that’s never going to be the thing you tell your friends about. If you had to name the one feature that you would consider the biggest, what would that be?

I understand that the Retina display is probably going to win this fight, but I’m a little biased because I live in a country that’s well behind in the 4G stakes (note to Apple: feel free to use your cash reserves to build the UK’s 4G network and become the only decent mobile carrier).

This week we have a superb competition for you – 10 (count em’) promo codes for Writing Kit are up for grabs! We reviewed Writing Kit back in August and found it to be a truly impressive writing app.

While it maintains the simplicity of a focused writing app, it includes the features to take your writing beyond basic text.

We gave it a strong 8/10, I’m sure you’ll love it – read on to find out how to enter!

To appropriately mark the downloading of the 25 billionth app, I think it’s important to take a fresh look at the App Store itself. Some of you might argue that I should tone down my approach, surely it’s a grave misnomer to use such strong language in reference to an imaginary (or at least virtual) shop. Much like the way it’s slightly creepy and weird to refer to the iPad, or any other technology for that matter, as sexy…

Love and hate are strong emotions, but I’m feeling opinionated so I’ll stick with them for sheer simplicity. Today I want to look at the App Store, a place we’re all abundantly familiar with, and why I think it’s a brilliant nightmare, a terrible masterpiece.

It’s a good day to be an iPad.AppStorm reader, not only is this the week of the iPad announcement, but we have a bonus competition for you! We reviewed PDFpen from Smile less than a week ago and Chris had some great things to say.

PDFpen is a powerhouse when it comes to both editing and marking up PDF documents, and it’s hard to believe that this high level of functionality comes from an iPad application.

PDFpen is a powerful PDF editor that provides a wide variety of markup and editing features. With PDFpen, it’s possible to highlight text, add PDF comments, or even change a pesky typo in the original PDF. Read on to find out how to enter!

We’re Looking for Writers!

Do you love iPad apps? Are you always on the look-out for the latest and greatest iOS software to work faster, be more productive, and enjoy your free time? You sound like the type of iPad expert that we’d love to have on our team!

We’re always on the look out for fantastic new writers across the AppStorm network, but we’re particularly wanting to find a few new contributors to iPad.AppStorm over the next few days. All our writing positions are paid, and we’ll work with you to choose apps to review and suggest article ideas.

If you’re passionate about writing and can’t get enough of your iPad, we’d love to hear from you. Register your interest here, and we’ll be in touch!

Do you like Safari on your iPad? Really?

I’ll admit that it is pretty quick, but that doesn’t make up for the dire lack of extensions – I just want to be able to use 1Password, is that so much to ask?

The question today is, would you use a different default browser on your iPad if you could? You can freely use a whole multitude of different browsers on the iPad, but not being able to set them as the default makes things awkward. That little settings change could mean so much.

You could have that gesture based browser you love always pop up when you click a link in your email, you could even use a browser that supports Flash as your default!

I’ve got a feeling that most people aren’t too fussed about the default browser, and the fact that Safari is pretty good helps to keep people from investigating the other options. But maybe I’m wrong, would you change the default browser if you could?

Text editors are a dime a dozen on the App Store, so it’s always a pleasure to find one that’s a little different! Phraseology is a text editor that offers a powerful set of language tools. Users can easily rearrange text, look up words, and inspect word usage for repetition or reading difficulty. We reviewed Phraseology at the end of January and gave it 9/10!

Phraseology is an absolute joy to use. It took some time to adjust to the sandy colors, but the app’s unique and powerful features are game changers for anyone looking for an app that does more with language.

Apple today sent out invites to journalists for their annual iPad event. This year, the event will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco on March 7th at 10:00 AM Pacific Time. Accompanying the invitations, Apple included the traditional image, which reads “We have something you really have to see. And touch.”

While there has been a great deal of speculation regarding this device in the past few months, there are a few things that have remained the same in most of them. Hit the break to see some detailed information on what Apple’s next-generation tablet may include.
