A few weeks back, Paula DuPont took a good look at Codex – a new approach to notetaking on the iPad. The app, according to the developers, is designed to replace your trusty Moleskine (it costs about the same as a standard notebook) and there’s plenty of flexibility and notetaking tools within, allowing you to add colour, diagrams and text to your notes.
We’ve updated the link with 100 new invites!
App.net (ADN) is probably the most talked-about social network of recent times — and it’s extremely easy to see why. OK, so microblogging is nothing new in the virtual world (yes, I’m looking at you, Twitter) but ADN really is the model that I’d love to see Twitter emulate.
For starters, you can post messages of up to 256 characters (sometimes, 140 just isn’t enough) and it feels a lot cleaner than Twitter — there’s no spam bots, sponsored links or pretentious retweets — just pure, unadulterated bliss. And with developers cottoning on to ADN, it’s now supported by a growing number of programs — including a number of iPad clients which Nathan Snelgrove rounded up for you recently.
Last week, Phillip Johns looked at Mail Pilot, an alternative e-mail client for your iPad. Judging by the results of our weekly poll, out of a total of 340 votes, 249 of you (nearly three-quarters) thought that the iPad deserved something different to Mail.app, and Mail Pilot for some may be the answer.
Instead of focusing on working through your e-mails as and when you receive them, Mail Pilot lets you put off e-mails and will remind you later on to take a look at them. This approach has also been taken by Mailbox – for the time being it only supports the iPhone and Gmail accounts — but Mail Pilot features a few nifty features up its sleeve that can help you reach that beautiful feeling of “inbox zero” in no time at all.
This Monday, Pedro Lobo looked at Actions, an absolutely fantastic automation app for your iPad. You can control virtually everything about your Mac or Windows computer (separate versions are available) right from your tablet and you can also create some pretty nifty shortcuts that will not only save you time but also make you a lot more productive in whatever you do.

We reviewed the excellent PhotoToaster around a week ago, and I’m now pleased to announce that we have 3 promo codes available for a giveaway!
In said review I noted how:
PhotoToaster is a beautiful app for making photo processing enjoyable and accessible, while still retaining a good degree of depth and power.
It’s perfect for almost any level of photo processing! From the very casual user who wants to add a little extra ‘pop’ to their photos, to the more avid photographer looking for inspiration.
