As much as the iPad is touted as a great portable content creation device, it still makes a stellar video player. In fact, I watch more video content on my iPad than any other device, including my TV, and most of that comes from independent sources like YouTube channels and blogs.
Denso is a video consumption, discovery and organisation app, allowing you to watch content from more than 250 different sources from around the web, all in one place. With Denso, you can subscribe to channels of content to be watched back in a continuous, auto-playing playlist and even downloaded to be watched later. Read on to see just how good it is!
My average workday consists of me sitting in front of the computer, hammering away at a keyboard while I try to let some kind of ambient noise filter through the house. Sometimes that’s my iTunes library, but since baseball season ended, I’ve been looking for some kind of video option that would keep me peripherally entertained while I got some work done.
Then I discovered DirecTV App for iPad, an app that with its recent update now has the ability to stream live TV. But is it worth the hype? Let’s figure things out after the break.
Booking a hotel for your vacation used to be fairly boring. Unless you were rich you would probably end up staying in some Super–8 or Holiday Inn (my apologies if these aren’t well known outside of the US) leaving a lack of variety and only the promise of a free ‘Continental Breakfast’ getting you through the trip.
Jetsetter is going to change that. While the name implies that the app is focused on getting you to your vacation, Jetsetter is actually an app that allows you to view sales for places that you can stay while you’re on your vacation.
HowStuffWorks was originally established as a website in 1998 by former college professor Marshall Brain. Beginning with a focus on technical topics such as science and engineering, the website eventually expanded and broadened its horizons to encompass other areas such as health, history, and politics, becoming a powerhouse of ‘edutainment’ in the process.
Here the HowStuffWorks team follow up on their popular iPhone app to venture once again into iOS and offer a version optimised for the iPad. Read on after the break to see how well the HowStuffWorks experience translates to Apple’s tablet.
I’ve mentioned before how there is an abundance of reader apps available on the App Store and here at iPad.AppStorm we just can’t get enough of them. So, this month I decided to take a look at the latest version of FLUD.
With the popularity of apps increasing on Facebook we now are able to easily share with others what we’re listening to, reading, and watching in realtime. FLUD is a reader that looks to add a social experience to your everyday reading by giving each user the ability to create their own “news personality” based on what they read and share with others.
There are many ways to explore the world. Some folks prefer to go by plane, while others would rather to take cruises or stowaway on ships. These are usually the desired means of transportation for if you wish to travel across the pond, so to speak.
On the other hand, if you want to visit majestic places in your own homeland, you’ll usually take a plane, car, bus, or train to get there. The one element of the travel equation that’s missing is the map. All explorers carry a map with them, but things have changed a lot since the days of paper and compasses. In this day and age explorers prefer to take along a smartphone that has all of the tools they’ll need. The only problem with this solution is the device’s small screen, which poses a limitation if you’re looking to use it as a replacement for your map. This is where the new iPad app Stuck on Earth enters the scene.
Stuck in Earth is a free app invented by the renowned HDR photographer Trey Ratcliff. The app’s name is modeled on his photography blog, Stuck in Customs. Ratcliff designed the app to help photographers and explorers find the prime spot to take a photo while on their travels. It works like a traditional map, except with community involvement and photo sharing that spreads the word if there’s a great spot somewhere near where you’ll be traveling. If you love to explore the great abyss and take photos while doing so, then read on to discover an app that will assist you with your endeavors.
What is it about us guys and our cars? Simple 4-wheeled machines with the primary purpose of getting us from A to B; and yet there’s something so elegant and enchanting about supercars that allures many of us into (almost) impossible fantasies about one day owning one.
Cars have developed into more than straightforward transportation methods and into a form of artwork; with the design being as important as function in many cases, and millions and millions of pounds being spent every year striving to reach an ultimatum of the two. Road Inc is a wonderful museum to showcase some of the greatest cars that ever roamed the earth, head past the break for an in-depth review.
Let’s face it. The app store is overflowing with RSS readers.
On the iPad it began with the highly publicized Flipboard and developers took off from there. While I’m quite an avid blog reader, all the reader apps can begin to blend together after awhile – to a point where I find myself not paying much attention anymore. However, there are a few, like Reeder, that find ways to stand out.
Typically what causes them to stand out is a wealth of features, a beautiful design that has visual appeal, and a twist on the basic concept of reader apps. I quickly found that The Early Edition 2 fits that mold and has quite a bit to offer.
Despite a suffering economy, or perhaps because of it, the entertainment industry is booming. One area in particular that continues to get better and better is film, with new releases every week and scores of excellent movies shown every year. Going to the theater is one of the last cheap options for a date or get-together with friends, and the only question after you decide to go to a theater is which movie you should see.
Apple has released their own movie app, called iTunes Movie Trailers, that will help you decide on every aspect of the movie experience, from which trailers to watch to which theater is showing the movie you’re dying to see. Is this app a red-carpet masterpiece, or a B-movie at best? Read on to find out.
The ubiquity of the internet and availability of a high speed connection wherever you are has undoubtedly been an awesome boost for tourism! A huge number of apps have surfaced that try to bring all relevant local information to your fingertips.
One smart way of doing this is to basically tie up Google Maps – a standard compendium of geographical data – and Wikipedia – a standard compendium of knowledge about places. This is exactly what Wikihood has done, let’s see if it’s any good.
