Some people want better file management on the iPad, which means that they’ll probably need Documents. The app comes as a total revamp of ReaddleDocs and is even more capable than the old version. Readdle claims that its 4.0 update makes it the must-have app for iPad and its actual rhetoric claims that Documents makes your iPad worth its high price are especially bold— especially for an app that’s completely free.

According to the app’s description, it claims to be a “document viewer, PDF reader, download manager, music player and read it later” replacement, along with a whole host of other things. I’m always wary of apps that do this much, as there’s always the potential to be a jack of all trades and master of none, or worse: completely impossible and inelegant to use. The simple question is, though, can Documents be as powerful as its developer claims while still remaining easy to use? Let’s find out.

When it was teased on their home page a couple of days back, forums and blogs around the world exploded with rumours about what the new app from the “shockingly good software developers” Panic was going to be. And today, those rumours have been debunked. Panic have released an iPad dashboard app, innocently named Status Board, making it the sixth app from these acclaimed developers.
Panic’s foray into iOS app development has been limited to Diet Coda (which we reviewed back in June 2012) and Prompt, an SSH client for the iPhone and iPad, however Status Board marks a radical shift towards more consumer-orientated apps — something which your dear author appreciates terribly. Their reputation for making functionality and features sexy at the same time is something that has grabbed everybody’s attention, and Status Board is absolutely no exception to this.

There’s not a lot you can do with your notes in iOS for the most part. Most notes apps let you type and that’s about it. If you need to call out specific sections of text or give emphasis to certain phrases, there’s only so much you can do.
Rich Notes is an app that allows you to not only create notes with bold, underlined, and italicised text, but you can also add color and even highlight passages. If you’ve been looking for a notes app that will let you create rich text in iOS, this may be the one. We’ll take a look at it and see how it holds up against the rest. (more…)
