Love this. Love the flight options and comparisons.
I like having all my bank transactions at my fingertips; however, Mint doesn't always update...meaning that I've had a few heart attacks thinking that direct deposit didn't go through. Wish it was a little more accurate and quick.
Does what it's supposed to: keep a steady beat in a variety of tempi and time signatures. I use this a LOT when I'm teaching music. Not so much when I'm playing, because it isn't loud enough (even with headphones). Still useful and definitely worth the price!
There is no way I could imagine living without this app. Living in Pittsburgh and being a RABID Yankees fans, I listen to practically every game. I finally bought an mlb.tv subscription, so now I can watch them! Watching over wifi is flawless; not so much over 3G, although the radio plays beautifully over either.
I like the multiple-team following this year, and I like the news feed as well. The player cards need work. Being able to call up the box score during the video is pretty amazing as well!
BIG ups for this year: the ability to throw the radio feed to Safari and do stuff on your phone with it playing in the background. That's an amazing, if battery-hogging, feature that I've used a LOT.
I'm enjoying Tweetie 2 immensely; as have many others, considering that this company was just bought by Twitter to become their mobile client. What's not to love? Easy, intuitive interface; follow / unfollow / block easily; manage your profiles and profile pictures; best of all, it restarts EXACTLY back where you left! So, if you click on a link and want to read it in Safari or email it, the app reopens back to where you started. That's the best feature, and one I'm immensely appreciative of. Great Twitter app, and this should be the last one (of five) that I ever use!
Okay, I freely admit two things: 1) I bought this on sale a couple of weeks ago, so it was only $1.99; and 2) I spent WAY more than two bucks, back in the day, on this game.
What's not to love? Beautiful graphics, unique gameplay, options to help make it a bit easier, lots of continues and restarts... and only $5! This brings me back into the '80s, when this game was cutting edge and top-of-the-line. Amazing!
I've downloaded and deleted a half-dozen games since I first downloaded this. It's still sticking, even over a couple of paid apps. Why? It's FUN. It's easy enough to get through, on the lowest levels, without much knowledge of the tower defense genre; it's challenging enough for any tower defense junkie to play. The accomplishments are fun to earn and are rewarding, and the extra twists and options in gameplay are interesting and challenging. Definitely worth the price!
Nice app for keeping track of what you want to keep track of - I keep track of calories, carbs, fats, and protein. It gives daily and weekly averages of your eating, and it's very easy to customize meals and recipes that you frequently eat. Easier than Livestrong, even though the database isn't as thorough.
I've played a relaunch of Final Fantasy, but never got to Final Fantasy 2. I love it! It's awesome! I love the games, the sidequests, the plots, the levelling system, the combat... it's a great RPG, particularly considering it's from 1988. I'm at 25 hours of gametime, with about 7 or 8 more to go before I'm done! On a dollar per hour ratio, this is one of the best apps I've downloaded.
Hooking my to-do list with Open Feint makes this app a clear winner! I enjoy doing my work and personal tasks while earning accomplishments and points on Open Feint. I'm booking for a top-100 spot! Plus, this encourages me to get stuff done a little faster, and to keep accurate track of things in my life.
This is the 4th RSS reader / Google Reader app that I've downloaded, and I think this one is finally the one. It downloads only new feeds - no repeat feeds, keeps track of where you are in the article you're reading, keeps accurate track of the orientation, etc. Nice job for this, and I can finally follow the 20-something RSS feeds!
Super helpful all of those times that you need to convert something from German into Filipino.
Or, you know, when you're doing your Spanish homework and you cannot for the life of you remember how to say "canteloupe" en espanol.
This free translation app allows you to choose the source language (what you're converting it from) and target language (what you want to convert it to) and displays the word/sentence/paragraph right there for you, accent marks and all.
You can even translate text and send it as an e-mail, directly from the app!
Ever go to a conference in a new city and have no idea where anything is in relation to you and all you really want in life is to be comforted by a venti iced skinny vanilla latte from Starbucks? No? Is that just me?
Well for those of us who find ourselves in foreign places on a regular basis, Vicinity allows you to find bars/restaurants/banks/cafes/salons/hospitals/etc. that are nearby.
It taps into your phone's GPS and gives you lots of options for what's around you. Once you click on a location, it provides the address and phone number and you can even view it on a map! How convenient.
Sometimes it's a little buggy and takes a bit to update your location, but if you have some patience it's all worth it.
You can participate in a GoToMeeting on your iPad. My friend conducted a meeting and showed off some websites, and it worked beautifully. You can use your phone for the audio or get audio directly from the iPad (a roundabout way of using the iPad as a phone...). I didn't use headphones during my experiment, but I think the audio would sound better that way...it was a little faint.
I downloaded v1.0 of this app way back on July 11, 2008, the day I got my iPhone 3G.
Billed in the AppStore as 'entertainment for toddlers', I thought it would be perfect for impressing my niece, who was two years old at the time.
I don't even remember showing it to her now, and I know it didn't stay on my phone for long. I had to transfer it again to my device for this review, in fact.
I'm not a mom, so maybe I don't know what a toddler is. I *do* know, however, that even at two years old, Nakayla would have found this app interesting for about 30 seconds. Maybe 60.
Here's how it works: as you drag your finger across the screen bubbles appear. Tap them and they pop, making an appropriately fun sound.
They disappear pretty fast, even without popping them, which means for me that mom or dad (or auntie) would have to be the bubble-maker so that our little rugrat doesn't get frustrated. Because it seems to me that the only child who'd be entertained by the app long-term is a *very* young one who'd have a hard time understanding or performing the drag.
Would that be a one-year-old? And is that a toddler? I sure don't know.
I do think the kind of kid that likes this even a little bit is going to prefer putting your phone in his or her cute little mouth, though.
It took me a little trial an error, which almost had me ditching the whole thing, cause things don't move fast, and it's moving one piece at a time, but once you've got it figured out, it really is a simple but complex game.
The second scenario in 'The South Guard' playing as a soldier did me in the first three times, but rest assured, if you enjoy strategy and don't mind more careful considerations and slightly long turns, then this might be a definite game for you. It presents challenging scenarios, and a bit of a storyline. The graphics are decent, a change of music would be nice though.
This app is a good supplement for those that are learning to read, write and speak French. It does not have audio or tell you how to pronounce the words, but if you are not an absolute beginner, you should manage just fine.
