[Review] iPhone app: Moonlight Mahjong Lite

In Tech on September 22, 2008 at 1:03 pm

Cost: Free

I love mahjong. I enjoy the puzzle of matching tiles. One very interesting thing about this program is the way it rotates through the view. 1 finger drag, 2 finger drag and pinch all give you different ways of movement.

[Review] iPhone app: CheckPlease

Cost: Free

CheckPlease is a tip calculator. Enter the total amount of the check. Then select on the scroll wheel the tip and the number of people splitting it. The tip percentage can be 0 to 99 percent. The number of people between 1 and 30. It also allows you to post to Pocket Money. I don’t use this so I don’t know how it works. The newer layout is a lot like TIP and is much better than the old layout (which is still an option).

[Review] iPhone apps: Last.FM

In Tech on August 27, 2008 at 1:34 pm

Website: http://www.last.fm
iPhone site: N/A
App Store link: [1]
Cost: Free
Uses: 3G Network

photo.jpgThis is an internet radio app similar to Pandora [2], but with a few different approaches. It accesses your Last.FM profile [tatianamik]. You can pick radio stations based on your library, your friend’s listens, or recommendations for you. It also keeps your most recently listened to stations handy. If you simply just want similar artists it will handle that as well as artists that have been tagged. You can access your Top Artist, Albums & Tracks charts. When you are listening to radio you can look up the artist’s bio, similar artists, upcoming events & more. You can also share with someone in your contacts or among Last.FM friends. It also had the ever convenient Buy on iTunes button.

If you want to use the My Library function you probably want to be using the desktop version with your iTunes. It’s free from the website.

[Review] iPhone app: AIM

In Tech on August 18, 2008 at 1:02 pm

Website: www.aim.com
iPhone site: N/A
App Store link: [1]
Cost: Free
Uses: Network

photo.jpgUntil Push technology is implemented, I hate AIM on the iPhone. In the best of times, I only pop in and out of IM. That’s cause I’m usually online at weird times, like 3 am on my nights off. You will have much better luck using something asynchronous such as email or twitter. AIM you have to keep the program open. And frankly I don’t want to just sit there with my phone powered up with AIM sitting on the screen in case someone wants to IM me. Just ain’t going to happen.

[Review] iPhone App: Remote

Sites: None
App store link: [1]
Cost: Free
This is an app written by Apple. It does a very simple thing. Over your wifi connection it controls your iTunes. You can browse the music/video library on your computer and play it. Just like you can play the part of your library that’s on your phone. See the album art. Everything. The great thing about it being Wifi is you don’t have to be within line of sight to access it. You can be in another room. Or downstairs. As long as your library and your phone are on the same wifi network it will work. Very useful, even if it is a pretty simple concept.

[Review] iPhone App: Evernote

In Tech on July 25, 2008 at 1:48 pm

Website: www.evernote.com
iPhone site: same
App Store Link: [1]
Cost: Free for less than 40 MB per month; $5/mo or $45/yr for 500 MB (last month I only used 1.1 MB)
Uses: Camera, Audio
3 great iPhotos
Notes, Lots of little Notes. This is my Gmail of Notes. It can even search test within a photo. Now I know people who have multiple notebooks made on evernote and use tags religiously. The tag I use the most is “inprogress” for notes I am working on. Me, I’m more of a chaotic stream of conscious person. I don’t file my Gmail messages or label my email (unless I have the autofilter set to automatically do it). I use the search feature to just search what I’m looking for. Evernote allows me to do this with my notes. And believe me the infophile inside me is happy to keep my notes in a way that I don’t have to spend hours looking for them. The handwriting recognition and the ability to search for text in photos also set this application apart from the crowd. So just snap a photo of someone’s handwritten note. It will be searchable.

Suggestions for improvement:
-The ability to edit notes.
