Birdseye Makes Email on the iPad More Visual, Dynamic, and Yes, Even Fun [Daily Freebie]

birdseye-1  The words “fun” and “email” probably don’t belong together. But of the small handful of email apps available for the iPad, Birdseye is certainly the most fun. It’s also the most dynamic, with some cool tricks that should come standard with the stock iPad Mail app. Birdseye’s interface is so streamlined it makes the […]

Anchor is Like Facebook, But More Fun, More Useful And For Coworkers Only [Daily Freebie]

anchor-2  The Cult of Mac team used Glassboard to help coordinate our reporting efforts at this year’s CES back in January. It was quick, simple, tied us all together and made the show a little less crazy. This time around, maybe we’ll dump Glassboard for Anchor, released today. It’s an app with the same basic […]

dataman-next-1

 

DataMan was one of the first iPhone data trackers when it debuted back in 2010, after AT&T 86ed the utopian guarantee of unlimited data.

This new iteration, DataMan Next, is much prettier, but essentially does the same thing: It tracks your data usage and warns you before you spend money needlessly on data overage charges; it can even predict whether you’ll end up going over your monthly allowance. And today,  [Read More…]

‘Snapshots’ Lets Everyone at an Event Pool Their iPhone Photos and Videos [Daily Freebie]

snapshots-2

 

Snapshots is a fantastic idea, and one I can see being used pretty heavily at weddings — or by, say, a gaggle of journalists who shoot an event and might need to pool their images.

The concept is spectacularly simple: Get a bunch of people together, and make sure they’re all running SnapShot on their iPhones; then have them upload all the images or videos they shoot via SnapShot  [Read More…]

So far, it’s been an interesting few weeks for digital publishing. Late last month saw the introduction of Flowboard, a digital publishing platform centered around an iPad app.

Now Disney has come out with their (highly simplified) take. Disney Story is a free iPhone app that lets you easily create a storyboard from photos on your iPhone, with accompanying text, which you can then share via email or on Facebook.

If you didn’t catch our post the other day about the newest game from living legend Sid Meier, the creator of Civilization and a heap of other ground-breaking games, here’s the nitty-gritty.

Rosetta Stone’s Free Navigator iPhone Apps Put Pronunciation Lessons in Your Pocket [Daily Freebie]

rosetta-stone-1

 

Most Mac users will experience one of three reactions after reading the word “Rosetta.”

The first involves breaking into a cold sweat, and possibly hives, after remembering that Apple no longer supports the translator that ran all those old, useful apps written for PowerPC-based Macs after Apple switched over to Intel chips.
