Web conferences and online meetings can be fraught with difficulties whether it’s connection problems, hardware issues or screen sharing issues, especially on mobile devices. GoToMeeting aims to make teleconferencing much smoother, easier and more reliable on your iPad.

GoToMeeting is a professional business solution that enables you to host or join meetings for free and even transfer a meeting to your Mac using Apple’s Continuity feature. Presenters can share both their screen and documents, including slide presentations, design mockups, spreadsheets, reports, etc. The good thing is that you don’t have to be a GoToMeeting subscriber to join a meeting either. Anyone can join a meeting with the free version of GoToMeeting or via the web, although if you want to host one, you must have a GoToMeeting subscription (which you can try free for 30 days).

I’m currently in the throes of consolidating as much of my information and workflows as possible, all the while, pruning redundant apps and services. In that respect, I’ve found myself using Pinboard increasingly more, not only for archival of my bookmarks but also for content discovery and as a read later service.

Therefore, I’ve been on a quest to find the best Pinboard client for iOS. Having sample a myriad of apps such as Pinner,Pinswift, Pinbrowser, Pinbook and Pincase (to name just a few) I now turn my attention to Pushpin to see how it fairs.

I was never much of a mind mapping person — that is until I stumbled into it a couple of years ago. Since then, its become an essential part of my thought process. I often turn to mind maps to help me flesh out ideas and having an app on my iOS device that allows me to do so, is game changing.

Mention mind mapping on iOS and immediately two names rise to the top: iThoughtsHD and MindNode. When time came to choose one, I opted for MindNode — Despite iThoughts being heralded as the best. It’s minimal, almost playful aesthetics drew me in and it was powerful and versatile enough for my needs while being a joy to use.

It did have it’s shortcomings however, but this update addresses many of them, adds a few new features and a new coat of paint too.

I love Tumblr. I didn’t think I would, after I saw some of the stuff that my younger sister was always checking out on it, but sometimes I surprise even myself. At this point, I keep two blogs up on the site: a rarely-updated personal blog that’s not even worth linking to and a music recommendations blog called Unsung Sundays, and I couldn’t be happier with the service. It’s one of the few CMS systems that doesn’t feel totally broken.

That being said, I didn’t think I’d ever start making posts on my iOS devices and keeping them. While the Tumblr app for iPhone and iPad has been capable of doing that sort of thing for a while, it hasn’t always been as smooth of an experience as it’s been on the desktop. But recently, that changed with the iOS 7 update for Tumblr, which makes it the best blogging app on iOS bar none. Read on to find out why you might consider taking up blogging again, but from your phone.

Writer Pro is a bit bipolar. On the Mac, the app takes writing to a different level; elevating Markdown and a clean workflow into a smooth running system that is a pleasure to use. But on iOS, it’s a mess with very little reason to appear on your homescreen. And both apps cost $19.95.

And so, I’m conflicted. I like using Writer Pro, but I don’t enjoy using it on both platforms. In addition, new additional information about the developers has appeared, making me feel even worse. So should you spend $20 or $40 on the Writer Pro app system, or is it best to just walk away? Let’s find out. (more…)

A lot of people talk about image editing on iPad, but I’m not sure it’s quite there yet. Until it handles RAW, I’m going to be continually disappointed by some of the controls these apps offer. But some of them are so promising that it’s hard not to be tantalized by them, not to think that they offer a real glimpse of the photo editing future.

Some people have said things like that about iPhoto. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fine app, but it’s never going to replace some of the finer tools we’re used to on our desktops. Other people have said similar things about Snapseed, an app I really admire for what it’s doing on an iPad. But at the same time, Snapseed feels like it’s a little non-intuitive. It takes me a long time to really “get” what it’s about. That’s not the case with Photoristic HD though. Photoristic is an iPad photo editor’s dreamland: it’s fast, powerful, and a lot of fun. Read on to find out what makes this a must-have image editor.

Dictionary! That likely isn’t the first type of app you rush to the App Store to install when you open up your new iPad. However, a handy, powerful dictionary can come in handy in almost all professions, and the iPad is the thinnest dictionary you’re likely to find.

The problem is, most dictionary apps are complete garage. They either rely on a constant internet connection (deal breaker for many), or have a poor layout that makes finding words and other information about each word cumbersome. WordBook tries to buck this trend by being optimized for iOS 7, and placing an emphasis on your information, instead of advertisements to pay for the service. (more…)

Last month, I was loafing round the house with my phone wondering how cold it was outside. Being the ridiculously technology-glued person I am, I started searching for a weather station that integrates with the Web, tablets, and smartphones. (Obviously, stepping into the sun was out of the question, because I’m a vampire [they’re real]). After a few clicks, I found the Netatmo, a very slick looking solution to checking the weather when you’re not in a walking mood.

The very idea of this may sound ridiculous, I know. However, there is a purpose for everything and I decided to give Netatmo a try. After all, Wired and Time wouldn’t feature it unless there is something more than the basic weather station. Or so I thought. (more…)
