So you’re sitting in this airport with your iPad when all of a sudden you get the urge to play around with designing a website. What are you supposed to do? You don’t have your computer on-hand, and surely the iPad couldn’t help you brainstorm, design, and build a website, right?
Wrong. With the proper tools the iPad could easily be a useful crutch in this scenario, allowing you to capitalize on a burst of inspiration or kill time in a productive way. Let’s dig in.
Thanks to everyone who took part in the giveaway this week, and special thanks to the kind people at Good.iWare! I’m excited to let you know that the winners have now been chosen. Congratulations are in order to:

Last week we ran a poll entitled “What Are You Most Excited About in 2012?” The response was great, but relatively unsurprising. People want to see what the next generation of both the iPad and the iPhone looks like!
There has been a huge amount of speculation surrounding Apple making a new move in the television market, and that showed up in the polls – there was also concrete interest in a potential Apple Television. However, today I want to look at a few of the reasons I’m personally excited about the new iPad…
The Lovely Charts app hit the App Store on the 8th December. It takes a different approach to creating charts on your iPad, based on gestures, and tap and touch, rather than selecting from menus.
It has entered a fierce competition space, with the powerful TouchDraw and OmniGraffle being 2 such competitors. So can Lovely Charts live up to its name? And can it compete with the well established charting apps? Let’s take a look.
It’s easy to get lost in the iPad gaming market. More than any other type of app, there are tons and tons of games, and even more of them coming out every day. We all know and have played the usual games that everybody buys: Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja and Cut The Rope. But what about the more immersive, time-consuming games? All of the games I mentioned are great, but what about the other great games that are out there?
This roundup is of games that are a little deeper than those – 15 awesome games for your iPad!
I know that you’re sick of reading this. Frankly, I’m sick of writing this, but it bears repeating: the iPad can be used for something besides watching videos, reading, or other leisure activities. While it certainly excels at those types of tasks, it can also be used to create things as well.
Enter Textastic. Textastic is a text editor for the iPad that allows you to write in several different programming languages, with many of the features of a desktop text editor. If you’re ready to begin coding from your iPad, Textastic just might be the place to start.
It’s the New Year, and the perfect time to take a poll about what’s getting people excited! Rather than publish an exasperating poll that encompasses all eventualities, from the Olympics to finally playing Monopoly all the way through, I’ve decided to stick with Apple and the possible/probably/likely launches that are due this year.
Are you giddy about the next iPad, a guaranteed appearance this calendar year, or is it the spurious and much-rumoured Apple Television that’s getting you worked up?
Click on the right and lodge your feelings on the internet, what harm can it do? I’m hoping there’ll be some iPad sympathy here on iPad.AppStorm, but I’ve got a feeling that the iPhone 5 might just edge it out in the expectation and excite stakes…
Am I right?
Feel free to leave any comments or thoughts below – are some of these things definitely not going to happen this year? Have I missed something massive?
We’ve collected the top four reviews, roundups and how-to articles from across the AppStorm network in February. Whether you’re interested in Mac, iPhone, Web, or Android apps, there’s bound to be something you didn’t spot over the course of the month. Now would be a good time to explore a part of the AppStorm Network you’ve never seen before!
Thanks for reading AppStorm, and I hope you enjoy looking over some of our favourite posts from last month!
Accepting payments used to be a pain. If you weren’t an authorized business with a way of actually charging a credit or debit card, you were forced to only accept cash. As we continue to grow more reliant on online payments and swiping our plastic cards, this excludes a large number of people – like myself – that would gladly give you some money, if you would let me.
Enter Square. Square is an easy way to get paid, with a full, end-to-end system that will allow you to start accepting payments right away. Is Square worth your time, or is it another ‘easy’ payment system (ahem, PayPal) that promises the sky but fails to deliver? That’s what I’d like to discuss today.
