A notepad test: take a pen and a piece of paper or notepad and write a few words or your name. Easy, isn’t it? Now what about doing that on your iPad, but add the ability to carry with you many pens and paper types, preprepared perfect shapes, highlighter pens and a virtually unlimited reference book that you could cut and paste from (the Internet). Sound a little bit better than the pad and pencil? You’d like to think so.
Here’s the ultimate question: can you replace a notebook in college or your workplace with an iPad and some good software? Well, lets take a look at some of the best offerings out there and see how well they match or exceed your notepad test. (more…)
Flow Free is a puzzle game that involves connecting colored dots on a grid. The concept is as simple as can be, and yet as the levels progress, this becomes more of a challenge than you might think.
If you like puzzles that require some meditation and strategy, and if you’re the kind of player who just has to dominate a level — no matter how many times you have to replay it — before moving on to the next, then Flow Free is right up your alley. Click “more” to take a look. (more…)
When it comes to buying things online, there are definitely a lot of options. One of the most popular websites to purchase new swag, without a doubt, is eBay. There are people that spend most of their day combing the online auction website (even when they’re supposed to be working), trying to place the winning bid, while trying to avoid those pesky snipers. With the popularity of the iPad, it comes as no surprise that an online seller of goods would want to provide their service in the form of an app.
EBay for iPad has been around since August 2010, and since it’s release the app has been able to maintain a four star rating (out of five) with over 35,000 ratings, which is no small feat when it comes to App Store reviews. With such high praise from users, it’s high time that eBay for iPad received the AppStorm treatment. All you need to do is hit the jump. (more…)
Since the start of 2013, I’ve been on the journaling bandwagon, and I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect journal app. I’m not of the feeling that one app is going to suit everyone, though, or even fulfill all my needs. With daily questions to encourage more thoughtful journaling and even more questions to download, I decided to give Roller Journal a go. Will the gimmick get old or will Roller Journal win a space on my home screen? (more…)
There are several problems with traditional radio. One is that there is a limited number of frequencies available, and this limits the number of stations that you are able to pick up. It is something that has been addressed to some extent by digital radio, but it has not solved things completely.
Then, of course, there is Internet radio. This opened up a whole new world of listening opportunities and if you want to avoid having to navigate from one station’s web site to another, you’re going to need a dedicated app. This is exactly what TuneIn Radio is. (more…)
Well, 2012 has come and gone, and we at AppStorm have seen and used many great apps on iOS. Though we surely couldn’t ever go through each and every quality app recently released, we’ve put together a list of a few of our most treasured titles that have earned a permanent spot on our iPads.
If you were one of the lucky ones that received a shiny new iPad this holiday season, you’ll find many gems worth downloading here. Some are free, some are not, but they’re all guaranteed to be worth your time. Take a look! (more…)
When I bought my first iPad, I got home, unwrapped it and put most of my movies on the shiny device. But the music? That stayed right in my iTunes library because I didn’t need it. And why would I? There was never a point where I could see myself hanging around and listening to music on my iPad when my iPhone was just as close and more convenient.
But what about you? Do you listen to your music collection on your iPad? Let us know in the poll to the right!

Hope you stretched. You’ve got your work cut out for you this week, since you’re bound to be busy helping a little flying squirrel defeat some evil owl enemies; aiding a HoverBot return to another dimension; exploring (or re-exploring) all there is to know about Riven; commanding your own military faction; and giving a character named Marsh Mal a hand in popping some blobs.
While this week’s games could not be more different, they all have one thing in common: a high fun factor in my book. Click “more” to check them out for yourself and let me know what you think. (more…)
