My friend Bonnie bought a DSLR Camera and hardly knows how to use most of its features. In my quest to find out what most of the features were, I stumbled upon “Photo Academy”, a photography encyclopedia of sorts which I think is really helpful.
Though I love my iPhone, I’m not a big fan of Apple’s built-in voice recorder app. In fact, after having used sophisticated recording apps such as Vox Studio and Awave Audio on my PC, using the iPhone voice recorder simply sucks. Therefore, I’ve been scanning the App Store for feature rich voice recording apps for the iPhone and I recently stumbled across Mega Recorder +.
I have never understood the importance of Apps for Editing Photos. Its one of those things you need to use first to appreciate. However, if the App make its easy to dramatically alter your photos with a well thought of interface, its an added bonus. For ease of use and features, Snapseed has always been on the top of the list for me.

Japanese Phrases FREE is a language learning app which recently caught my eye at the App Store. It is a feature-packed app that presents a cool way to learn Japanese lessons. It is designed to make language learning fun and is apt for beginners who are eager to pick up conversational Nihongo (Japanese).
The Internet has eliminated boundaries with regards to expressing your views. The blogosphere has allowed everyone to have their little soapbox to express their views for people to follow, tweet about, and discuss. Personally, I am a closet introvert. I don’t have that much I wish to share about, so I have avoided starting any sort of Blog (personal or otherwise) despite encouragement from friends.
The App Store is just amazing at churning out some impressive Apps. Video Time Machine is a testament to that. Created by the same guys that gave us YouTube Time Machine (YYTM), Video Time Machine is a curation of over 10,000 selected videos – from 1860 to 2011.
You can watch specific categories including TV, Music, Advertisements, Trailers, Video Games, Sports, and so much more. As with quite a lot of good Apps, Video Time Machine has a simple interface. You get to select the year and category of what you want to watch with a rolling Tab on the top right of the screen.
Today we will review yet another unique game for the iPhone and iPad (and even iPod touch) that comes from the same developers who developed the Paper Toss game which we reviewed recently.This game, known as NinJump, features a the player as a ninja who has to climb up towards the top of the wall in straight line, against the gravity. In the process of climbing, he faces distractions and obstacles such as squirrels that attack him to kill and so do some angry birds and enemy ninjas. The ninja is also attacked by high speed stars that travel towards him and bombs that on explosion, can take the ninja down without giving a life-line in the long climb.
I love watching videos on Facebook. In fact, I hardly visit YouTube for watching videos anymore. While there’s an iPhone app for YouTube, I always wished for a Facebook videos app which would display only Facebook videos and cut the crap on status updates, likes and other features in which I’m least interested. I recently came across the VideoGet for Facebook iPhone app and I must admit it’s pretty close to what I had in mind as the perfect Facebook video watching app.
For the last 5 years I have not owned a car, instead my preferred mode of transportation is the subway. I shuttle between 2 cities – Shanghai and Singapore – both have relatively safe and efficient subway systems. So far I have managed to revolve my life around subways, choosing to stay near central stations to accommodate my movement in these cities.
One of my go-to Apps for planning subway trips has been Explore Metro’s Subway App. The most important thing about this App is that it is really up to date. Unlike some other Apps, the team at Explore Metro work hard behind the scenes to update the new lines, stations, and traveling times. As Asian cities develop, more lines and stations are constantly being added, so it is important that the App’s details remain relevant.
I have been looking for an Office Suite for the iPad for a long time. In this arena, Documents to Go rules. But I wanted to try out an alternative. I read decent reviews about Office 2 HD and downloaded it. I am happy to report that it is now my go-to App for reading and editing Office documents on my iPad.
Office 2 HD is a first cloud-friendly productivity option for the iPad. The app integrates file-sharing feature in iTunes or you can set up access to a cloud service such as Google Docs, MobileMe, DropBox, MyDisk, Box or others.
