[Review] iPhone app: Labyrinth Lite Edition

Cost: Free

Remember those wooden games where you try to get a marble from point A to be point B in a maze without falling in the holes by turning knobs to tilt the surface? This is the same thing ported to the iPhone. The lite edition has 10 levels. I promised myself I wouldn’t buy the paid version until I’d beaten the Lite version and so far it remains unbeaten.

[Review] iPhone app: Tip

Cost: $0.99

Tip is a tip calculator.  Enter the amount of bill, select the number of people and the tip percentage. Tip percentage ranges from 0 to 35 percent.  People splitting ranges from 1 to 25 people. It lets you pick from exact, rounded, or  mirrored. Mirrored gives you an amount like $35.53. I found this to be a unique feature. The layout seems to have been copied by CheckPlease’s new version.

[Review] iPhone app: CheckPlease

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 app: Instapaper Free

photo.jpgI’ve raved about Instapaper [2] cause it does one thing well. I used to keep tabs open because I wanted to read something “Later”.  Now I can click on that “Read Later” bookmarklet on my browser and close that tab. I also love that after I click that link and read the article it takes the link out of the queue.

Now to my delight there is the Instapaper app. It downloads the  10 most recent marked stories so you can read them offline. Very handy for when you’re stuck waiting somewhere.

Now for the iPhone platform, WordPress[2]! Use it with a WordPress.com blog or a self-hosted WordPress blog to write your blog posts on the go. If you can tolerate doing that amount of typing on such a small screen. Also you have to manually do your html tags. I’ve sort of adopted a hybridization of html entry and  the editor for most of my posts from the desktop. But it’s great to work on a short post. The ability to save drafts are also handy. My only problem is the on screen keyboard. I want a bluetooth keyboard already.
