In last week’s poll, we asked if you still thought the iPad mini was worth it, and we received an interesting comment from kralnor:
It won’t be until apps start taking full advantage of the processing power available in the full sized iPads that people will start feeling differently I think. But again that will only be power users at that point.
The sticking point for me was “power user,” a term I had never really applied to iPad users before. But it makes sense. They’re the people who use their iPads for everything, from work to hobbies and everything in between.
What about you? Do you consider yourself to be an iPad power user? Let us know in the poll to the right!

You pack them up when going on vacation. Tabasco is one of these. Someone who cleans public places. A dessert like a muffin but has buttercream on top.
The sentences above might seem like nonsense, but it is your job to decipher them in Guess!, one of the newest word games on the iPad. This game truly tests your ability to sort out what’s important from a sea of gibberish. Read more about it after the break. (more…)
Since Siri first made its appearance on the iPhone 4S in 2011, Apple has taken great strides in improving its functionality, specifically over the last few months. Though it’s pretty well known that Siri certainly isn’t perfect, you can’t deny its usefulness in certain situations where other voice recognition software just fall short.
Now that Google has updated their already great Google Search app on iOS to include their much praised voice recognition functionality from Android Jelly Bean, I can’t help but be excited about the possibilities of having access to the best of both worlds.
Let’s take a closer look at how to effectively utilize both Siri and Google Search’s voice recognition to help you get things done the right way. Read on for more. (more…)
There are many wonderful note taking apps available for the iPad. Some would even say there’s an abundance.

Catch Notes has approached this challenge by continually adding some nifty features since it’s version 5.0 update earlier this year; but is it enough to break out from the pack? Find out after the jump. (more…)

You may enhance the odd photo here and there, or you may go a little bit Color-Crazy and churn out photo after photo as I did in my testing, simply because it is genuinely good fun. Either way, this little gem is sure to add a little more color to your life. (more…)
