Set the app to full-screen and you have little emote than a beige sheet of virtual paper and a mouse  [Read More...]

It is often said that Japan is a weird country.

Case in point, can you imagine any other country in which Domino’s Pizza Japanese president Scott Oelkers would make a commercial in which, over the course of a two minute period, he shills a new iPhone app featuring a virtual anime girlfriend named Hatsune Miku who “exists in a software called Vocaloid which enables you to create songs” that Hatsune Miku then sings.

On my Mac and Windows PCs, where I have access to a speedy connection, I have mounted my Box and Dropbox account to act as a local virtual storage. This allows me to seamlessly transfer files between them and my local storage drives with a simple copy & paste, and it makes my cloud storage services much more useful.

Infinite Dreams has come a long way since we first discovered their virtual-pottery app, Let’s Create Pottery HD at the App Store in 2010. They’ve since created a smash-hit tower defense game, and unveiled the first touchscreen coin-slot arcade console based off an iOS game.

Infinite Dreams partnered with custom 3D-printing powerhouse Sculpteo for this one. Simply create  [Read More...]

You’ll need to have Maps view set in either Hybrid or Satellite mode to be able to see the globe view, that can be done by tapping the page curl in the corner then selecting either one,  [Read More...]

I love the iPod Classic. I don’t own one. But I love it all the same and wish it still played an important roll in my life, the way it used to back in 2006. Luckily, the iPod Classic is now alive on your computer.

Inventika Solutions created this virtual iPod Classic that functions just like the real deal. You can play music on it, move your mouse around the click-wheel to  [Read More...]

Concept Is A Slick Virtual Cork Board For The iPad



Concept is one of the nicest implementations of the virtual corkboard/scrapbook we’ve seen. You can add photos, post-its and index-cards to various “boards,” and rearrange them at will.

It’s a 1.0 release, and as such lacks a few basic niceties (like portrait orientation) but the polish and ease of use make up for it.


Open or create a board and tap on it. You can add a new object from the  [Read More...]
