Posted by Tom Starks On February - 29 - 2012

The 7Notes HD iPad App is an extremely helpful application for people taking notes on a regular basis, such as students or psychologists. Basically, the application allows you to simply write on the touch screen instead of having to type. You can use your finger or a stylus, but the idea is that the 7Notes HD iPad App recognizes your handwriting. It is quite a tall aspiration, especially considering how many other similar tools are on the market without enjoying any success, but 7Notes HD iPad App clears the high bar.

It is quite neat about the 7Notes HD iPad app that it offers a free trail version for you to get accustomed with the application and see if it fits your needs or if you could use it easily. Of course that can’t be much of a hassle, as the application comes with several suggestions of what you might be wanting to write while you do it. Plus, the only difference between the free and premium version seems to be the ability to later convert your notes.

7Notes HD iPad app has as main focus the recognition of the handwriting, but it also offers plenty of editing features for those who need more than just taking notes. And, as sharing means caring, you have the option of posting your notes on Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox and others.

Facebook Timeline App for iPad

Posted by Tom Starks On February - 24 - 2012

It is widely acknowledged that Facebook is not only the most popular social network of the moment, but also the application that is most used on both major mobile platforms, Android and iOS. Therefore, a new Facebook application is something of an event and the Facebook Timeline App for iPad sure left fans waiting after its release was delayed. However, now that it is on the market, users have several new features of the Facebook for iPad to play with.

The fresh Facebook application enables users to rearrange their post, latest news or personal info chronologically, in the idea of letting people know how your life changed over time. But that is not the only trick of the Facebook Timeline App for iPad, as some functions seem to have improved compared with the last version of Facebook for iPad. The photos, for example, are loading much faster and the response time is a lot smaller. The notifications feature now activates pop-up windows or takeovers of half the screen, as opposed to sending users to different pages, which also speaks to the easier and quicker access provided by the new Facebook application.

Another great new feature is that you can now add friends to specific lists, rather than just to a general “Friends” section, and also enables “Subscribers” and “Subscriptions” features, just like on the website, allowing users to be kept up to date with posts from friends or to keep them updated.

Combining the easiness and speed of the desktop experience with the multi-touch features of the iPad, the Facebook for iPad application is an awesome app, which will make the social network even more popular, if that is even possible.


Angry Birds iPad App

Posted by Tom Starks On February - 21 - 2012

The Angry Birds game has got to be the simplest iPad game ever! The basic concept of the application is easy: green pigs have stolen some eggs from the birds, which has made the birds angry, hence the name of the game. Now as a player, your mission is to help the birds find the pigs and take them down. So, these little red birds are jumping into a sling shot and, using the touch ability of the iPad, you have to fire them away with your finger, obviously after aiming at a pig.

The more you advance along the Angry Birds iPad App, the more you discover special birds who have particular abilities and are of different colors. The blue birds for example have the power of separating into three different birds one they are in the air, if you tap them with your finger. The yellow birds are super charged and there are the white ones that have the power to drop bombs shaped as eggs. Finally, there are the black birds who become ticking bombs themselves.

The Angry Birds for iPad application can be really fun when you have some time to kill and, believe it or not, it can become very addictive, because it is not so easy to take down the pigs. Their houses are made of different materials, glass, which is easier to break, wood and then brick, off which birds bounce, so it becomes harder and harder.

Anyway, it is fairly fun to try and destroy the hiding pigs with flying birds and it can be a very relaxing way to spend some time, so if you own an iPad then you should definitely give it a go and download the Angry Birds game.

Noisepad iPad App

Posted by Tom Starks On February - 15 - 2012

Noisepad iPad app is a synthesizer application that allows you to add different and various sound effects to live shows. It has quite a potential, with its simple touch controls and great processor, which make the Noisepad an original sound board for the iPad. The very first thing that sets the Noisepad apart from the other iPad music tools is that it provides the user with a mixing boards and pads, as opposed to the other applications, which present full, digital synthesizer.

The Noisepad iPad app comes with several default samples, which are pre-recorded portions of music and the user can trigger them in order to compose original combinations.

But, while the option of mixing boards is one of the first noticeable differences, it is nothing of great magnitude. The feature that sets the Noisepad iPad app over the top is the freedom users have to upload their own music and combine it with the default sounds from the application. Now, if you have some experience with mixing and mastering audio pieces, you may not think this is so great, but rather a normal advantage, but for the rookies in the field, playback control will make Noisepad a real treat.

The Noisepad iPad app has a timer function, which users can profit by to select a speed, and amazing mixing controls. The application has a cut-off, a pitch control, crush functions and a delay effect, all of which speak to the intent of the app, that of the live rig.

Siri For IPhone 4 And IPhone 3GS Is Available

Posted by Tom Starks On February - 13 - 2012

I know that you all heard of Siri and know Siri is available for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS. The developers from the jailbreak scene have made a great job porting Siri on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and even on the iPod Touch 4G.

For Siri on iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS we need to thank to people like “chpwn” and “Steve Troughton-Smith” but for finding a way to extract from the iPhone 4S IPSW file all Siri files to be moved with success on the iPhone 4 and 3GS and on all other iDevices that support iOS 5 we will have to stay at the mercy of the other developers.

If you are distributing the Siri files from the iPhone 4S over the internet it is called piracy because the developers from Apple, as a marketing strategy, made Siri available just for iPhone 4S. Being some law abiding citizens the developers from Chronic Dev team and iPhone Dev Team will try to find out a way to get the files from the IPSW file, because if they will realize that everybody will be capable to access the files just downloading them from the Apple servers.

Being available, Siri on iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, you can transfer the files from a device to another only if you have an iPhone 4S.

As I told you Siri for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS is available but the extracting thing is the problem, which I hope that I will be solved soon by the jailbreakers out there that are working at it.

The newest update is that with the help of HISiri you can install siri on iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G.

If you are trying hard to install siri on iPhone 4 I want to let you know that HiSiri can help you with that. This is actually a tweak for jailbreakers and it will let you to install Siri’s GUI server connectivity on another device like iPhone 4.

After you have finished installing HiSiri on your device you will not be able to connect to the Apple servers but you can still connect to the private servers that are offered by the jailbreakers.

Not being an official Apple support you will experience some bugs or some small issues with HiSiri. We still hope that the developers from Apple to reconsider and to release an official support that can let you install Siri on iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS.

iPad 3 Release Date

Posted by Tom Starks On February - 8 - 2012

Being in the news for a long while the iPad 3 Release Date makes rumors. The latest rumor is from a Japanese website that is dealing with Apple, Macotakara, and they say that iPad 3 will be released in an early February or in an early March by the Apple and that I think will make a lot of people happy.

Building on the iPad 2 this new tablet, iPad 3, is a top product. The most important update at the iPad 3 is the display. First time the Apple developers announced that they were thinking at a dula-LED design for make it thicker than iPad 2. Later they said that they have achieved a work at the display and with the dual-LED backlights the display will go on higher values at the resolution. After the iPhone 4S had a great success with the retina display I think that this display will go on iPad 3 too and that will mean that it will give us an amazing high-definition on iPad 3.

On the iPad 3 could appear thinks like Siri that also is very popular on the iPhone 4S. If Siri will come on iPad 3 that will mean that this device will have the lates iOS and if the current 5.1 iOS that is beta will be launched before the iPad 3 that will mean that iPad 3 surely will have it.

Finally I think that iPad 3 release date is going to be on March. The Ipad 3 specifications and release date are the most famous things that are from the highest speculated things.

iPad 3 Features & Specs Expectation

Retina Display: The retina display was expected on the iPad 2 and as you know it iPad 2 has the same display at iPad 1 and that really disappointed the fans. Now everybody has great expectations from iPad 3 and one of them is the retina display

SD Card Slot:Another feature that everybody want on the iPad 3 is the SD card slot. Let’s hope that the developers from Apple will make us happy and introduce a SD card slot at the third generation on iPad.

Improved HDMI:I know that iPad 2 also supports HDMI playback but for this you were obligated to buy the Apple digital AV adapter and that was like $39. I think that what everybody wants is a HDMI port on the iPad 3 so we can get rid of the additional cable.

Camera Flash: This think was expected on the iPad 2 too but hopefully we see it at the iPad 3.

Thunderbolt: Another feature that iPad 3 may have it is the Thunderbolt port that will offer us video, power and data connectivity at the speed of light.

Wireless Synchronize: Another expectation is that the wireless sync of content and the traditional wired connectivity to be forgotten.
