iPad App Review: Desktop

Although the iPad is a fantastic piece of technology, it is much like the iPhone in the way that it only allows you to run one app at a time. For example, it isn’t possible to browse the web while you are writing an email. To a lot of iPad users this is a huge drawback for the product, but don’t worry, there is now a solution. This comes in the form of an app called Desktop which has been created by Aqua Eagle. But does it really do what it claims?

The simple answer is yes, the app allows you to run any two of the apps that on your iPad at the same time. However, it does only allow a certain amount of apps, so you will not be able to play the latest game you have just downloaded whilst browsed the web, for example.  The app works by splitting the screen, the app then puts each one of the apps you are running on each side of the screen, much like a desktop computer. This allows you to multitask, a feature that is yet to be seen on the iPhone or iPad operating system.Desktop

The app is extremely simple to use. When using the split screen, you choose how the screen is split; you can choose either to have an app at the top and bottom of the screen or to have an app to the left and right of the screen, depending on whether or not you opt for portrait or landscape mode. Although currently the app is limited to being able to run only the basic apps, such as Browser, Calculator, Currency Converter, Dictionary, E-mail composer, Maps, Weather, and a few others, it is still very useful. The app is also very intuitive and does most of the work for you, the user will never have to worry about resizing, moving, or maximizing the windows as the app takes care of this for you by itself. Until Apple brings in the next OS 4 update for the iPad, this is the closest we have to a complete multitasking system.

Overall, this is a brilliant and extremely useful app. There have been countless times where I have just wanted to check my email without exiting my current application or search for a song without quitting the app I’m currently using. The app is very easy to use and the developers also state that there are new modules coming in the next update, which will expand the variety of apps that you can use with the device. The app is very modestly priced in the app store so we highly recommended the purchase of it if you have a few dollars to spare.

iPad App Review: Evernote

If you have an iPad then you will know that since its release from Apple around 2 months ago, there have been a whole lot of third party apps being developed, all of which aim to make your life easier or more fun. One of the things that you will probably have noticed there is a lot of if you have browsed the iPad app store recently is notes applications. Now, this might seem a bit strange as you will probably know that the iPad actually comes with a notes application already installed, much like on the iPhone. However, there are a lot of iPad apps out there that claim to offer a lot more features than the already installed notes app offers, and one of these applications is called Evernote.

The idea of this application is that it will help you to remember everything that you ever want to remember, in fact, on the app store it actually describes the application as being an extension of your brain, meaning that they have made it extremely intuitive and easy to use.

The first thing we will talk about is the overall look of the app. The app has been designed extremely well and when you launch it for the first time, you will probably think that it looks pretty blank. The only reason for this is actually that you simply do not yet have any saved notes, therefore there isn’t really much to show you. However, the app is designed quite simply and there are no cluttered views or anything that might confuse you. The app features a large area where the notes are kept as well as a small taskbar at the top of the screen where you can select what you need.Evernote

Now, the application has some pretty cool features that will really make your life a lot easier. One of the best features we think is that with the app, you will have the ability to create text, photo, and audio notes. This means that if you can create notes like you usually would with the iPad on-screen keypad, but you can also add a photo into the notes and comment on it as well as making a quick audio note if you are in a hurry. This is a great feature and it will really speed things up. Another thing that you can do with this application actually syncs your notes with your PC or Mac so you can keep track of your notes wherever you are.

Overall, this is a fantastic note application for the iPad and the absolute best thing about it is that it is available free of charge from the app store, so give it a go.

iPad App Review: Penultimate

Penultimate is an app for the iPad that allows you to write, sketch, and draw almost anything you want to, simply using the touch of your finger on the iPad’s screen. The app is similar to the notes app that you get with the iPhone and iPod Touch, however, it’s more like ‘notes on steroids’ as it allows you to do so much more than was ever possible with notes.

The overall layout of this app is excellent. It features a beautifully designed interface and all of the different options and menus are set out in a very user-friendly manner, making them easy to read and understand. The app has great responsiveness and the iPad’s processor really comes into its own when you are using this app. At no point when we tested this app did it lag behind or need time to process what we were trying to draw or write. The second your finger touches the screen is the second that your writing or sketches will be transferred to the iPad device.Penultimate

The idea of the app is that it allows you to record your ideas, right then, at the moment that you think of them. You are able to create hand-drawn notebooks that can feature an unlimited amount of pages. Each page in the notebook can feature almost anything you care to scribble down, whether it be text, sketches, or even a mixture of both.

iPad App Review: PrintCentral

PrintCentral is a great idea for an iPad app that actually allows you to print a variety of different files right from your iPad. The idea of the app is that it will make it easier for many people to print the files that they want to print as they won’t have to waste time logging on to their computer; opening their files and printing in a conventional way like many of us are used to. Of course, as with many applications, the idea of this app sounds like a great idea, but a lot of applications are never really as good as they claim to be.

However, this is certainly not the case with this app as it seems to be one of the best web design websites for translating your thoughts into reality. The website is extremely well designed and the user interface is extremely simple. Even if you have not used an app like this for the iPad or iPhone devices before, you are sure to pick it up almost straight away and you will be printing your files from your iPad in no time. The app is laid out with a list of your files on the left-hand side of the screen, then on the right-hand side of the screen, you will get a preview of whichever file you decide to select. This is great as it sort of acts as a print preview and you can make sure that the file you want to print is actually the file you have selected before sending it to the printer. The menu bar is located along the bottom of the screen and has a variety of different options, including the print button of course.PrintCentral

The app has some pretty useful features that will really make life easier for a lot of people. One of these features is that you will have the ability to open attachments from the Apple Mail app that is pre-installed on the iPad and print them using this app. You are also able to print various web pages that you come across whilst browsing on your device and you are able to access your MobileMe account and print files that are located on that. As to the kinds of files that this app supports, there are very few that you will find it doesn’t support. You are able to print Word documents, PDF files, .txt files, image files, and many others.

Overall, this app is extremely useful and will really make printing those important documents easy. We would say that this app would be especially useful for business users who need to print those files as soon as possible without delay. The app is available from the App Store for just $9.99 and although that may seem like quite a hefty price just for an iPad app, you really are getting an array of extremely useful features.
