Flipboard: What Was Old Is New Again

Flipboard exemplifies the modern, successful application. Since its release, it has outwitted some of the most successful magazine and news organizations of the century. Many attribute its success to the innovative interface, which combines elements found in high-profile magazines with the fluidity of modern digital design, but others find the very idea behind the app to be the most intriguing aspect. The premise of Flipboard is obvious: in an age when opening a Twitter client also downloads a deluge of updates and information, Flipboard automatically sifts through the rubble and reveals only the truly great content hiding in the mundane updates that populate modern social networks.

10 Green-Fingered Apps for Gardeners

Here in the United Kingdom, we are still experiencing cold, wet, and downright miserable weather even though it is almost summer. Heck, over ten inches of snow fell at the end of April, leaving my partner and I housebound for a week!

As you can probably imagine, these conditions have seriously affected my sowing schedule, and I am now frantically playing catch up, using my iPad to help stay organized. Here, I have compiled a list of ten apps that will appeal to both new and experienced gardeners alike. Click “more” to read on.


Most of us have seen the hilariously yet morbidly cute video called Dumb Ways to Die that went viral earlier this year. Something about those cute little cartoon characters singing and dancing to the tune of stupid decisions is just so luring. I mean, setting fire to your hair had never been that catchy before this video.

Now, that adorable video has been transformed into its own iOS game. It is your job to correct the characters’ poor decisions to save them from what would be an inevitable death. Can you survive? Find out after the break.


Note-taking apps for the iPad come at a dime a dozen. From the more popular offerings such as Evernote and Simplenote to fairly obscure ones, there’s something out there on the App Store for almost every kind of iPad user. And now, with Beesy, from French developers BeesApps the business user is also covered as well. It’s received rave reviews from publications such as MacWorld and was recently featured as an Evernote Pick — a pretty astounding achievement, especially from such a massive and well-established company.

Beesy helps to make note-taking in the workplace a simple and painless task. At $5.99, it’s certainly priced towards the business end of the market so let’s find out whether or not Beesy is the note-taking app for professional use.

Party Monster Turns Your House Into a Club

The standard Music app on my iPhone has always been one of my favourite iPhone apps. It does what it does really well. Let’s be honest, for many of us, it was likely the reason we got an iPhone or an iPod Touch to begin with in the early days. Over the years though, there have been a lot of changes to the app. With the iPad, we really saw some huge changes. When the iPad 2 dropped, the iPad’s Music interface was rejiggered again and there was a huge outcry. With iOS 6, Apple gave the Music app a huge visual overhaul with a lot of chrome (which, for the record, looks terrible on anything smaller than the iPhone 5’s taller display). But there’s not a lot of new functionality to go with it.

iTunes for Mac, on the other hand, got a ton of new functionality last year. There’s absolutely no comparison. For all of its flaws, iTunes is still the best music player I know of for OS X. It’s a powerful jukebox. One of my favourite features from last year’s massive update was Up Next, a feature that lets you add any song and play it next before returning to your current playlist. I can’t tell you how handy this feature has been at my house parties. The iOS Music app still doesn’t have this feature (or many others). Party Monster aims to fix that.

Well now it’s time to graduate even further, and look at where the real power and potential in Pythonista comes from: modules.
