Swiping in app’s has been given a boost since iOS 7 and now MacPaw have taken swiping to a completely new lever. Doing away with buttons and text labels, MacPaw release Listen, An App that’s “less app and more listening”
The iPhone’s camera has come on leaps and bounds since it’s original release but there’s always one constant that’s never changed, the position of the lens. Sure placement is great for taking photos in front of you or at eye level but what about if you wanted to get a little more creative.
Theres been a huge amount of press about the new podcasting App called Castro. First coming into the light via Jim Dalrymple of Loop insight fame, Dan Benjamin and then Gruber it seems that everyone is raving about this new podcasting app. So we asked for a review copy and they gladly obliged.
MixPal.FM is an iOS radio streaming app for Apple devices that’ll not only let you skip forward through tracks but also go back and revisit tracks and playlists. It’s an internet radio streaming app concentrating on a specific genre rather that the broader alternatives.
The market is incredibly well catered for when it comes to organising and finding matter data for your audio yet when it comes the video pickings are somewhat slimmer. iVI is an all in one meta data collector and video convertor meaning your iTunes library will show all cover art and show information.
Missing cover art or show information for your movies you’ve backed up? Looking to add program names to video files the easy way? iDentify 2 for Mac looks at your file, goes off to IMDB, TVDB and others to populate that missing information and download cover art.
If you’ve used a computer for any length of time you’ll be familiar with partition sizes, partition types during the setup phase but what about later on down the line? I’ve done it myself being overcautious or forgetting to create a spare one just for data. And so the search for Mac Partition manager brings us nicely onto this review.
A rival to Apple’s cards is here in the form of Touchnote Postcards and Greeting Card Printed and Posted in the Mail with Free Worldwide Postage. In the same vein as cards, take a picture, edit text, select address and it’s mailed to the recipiant from your iOS device.
OCR is a handy tool to have in the reviewers arsenal. Leadtools OCR tools is a handy way to grab text from an image, screen cap or anything so you don’t have to re type what’s already been typed. A valuable timesaver in so many way but only if it works (hence this review). Similar ocr app use online recognition processing, sending the image off and then emailing results. Lead tools does it all offline, prompting me to download an app with no App Store reviews.
