Recently, I have found FlipBoard for the iPad. If you haven’t seen this product, where have you been. Seriously, they’re even in Newsweek and I just saw them in an iPad ad this evening. Here’s a demo of the app: Pretty freaking sweet isn’t it. And its free! Yes, FREE! I still don’t get this. Its getting such great buzz around the web, why not charge some money for the app.
Today, I’m finally able to let the cat out of the bag about a side project that I have been working on. My fellow brother in song, Brent Bierstedt and I have been working over the past several months on a better way of accessing, ranking and organizing iPhone apps. We love the iPhone and think that the store is pretty killer. But there are a few things lacking that with a little bit of technology, we can bring out the best of the store and make it easy to find, search, share and rank applications that you find.
Read any tech blog out there and you will surely find a story about the new Kindle App for the iPhone. I’ve been wanting a Kindle for a while now but the price is a bit steep for the amount of reading that I do. My wife on the other hand goes through books like no other so I’m thinking that eventually we’ll pick on up for her. But in the mean time, the app is free so let’s give it a whirl and see what it is like for a non-Kindle owner.
I’m an avid follower of the 37signals blogs and they happened to be giving out some promo codes for a new iPhone app called Outpost. All I had to do was send a tweet to the develoers and I just happened to be one of the lucky ones to secure one of these promo codes. w00t! I must say, as someone that is planning on releasing some software for the iPhone here in the near future, I’m pretty impressed with the promo codes.
If you are looking for a highly addictive fun game, I suggest you check out Frenzic. Frenzic is brought to you by The Iconfactory and ARTIS Software. You may recognize The Iconfactory as they are well known for bringing the iPhone world Twitterrific. And once again they have delivered a kick ass application! This game is fast paced, frantic and I can’t stop playing it. Its pretty simple to play. Think of it as Tetris played with the games pieces from Trivial Pursuit.
