Fooducate is an iPhone app which attempts to help you make better food purchasing and eating decisions.  It contains a bar code scanning technology, not unfamiliar to many other apps.  What Fooducate has that they don't, however, is a system which will pull up the scanned food product and grade them from A to D.  Read on for our Fooducate for iPhone review to see if this really does help us eat a bit better. … [Read more...]

Taposé Review for iPad


Microsoft had a promising concept a while ago with their proposed Courier Tablet.  This tablet never made it to market - actually as a result of the iPad's announcement. Microsoft killed the idea soon after.  However, app creator Benjamin Monnig had other plans.  He and his team used a popular idea/invention funding website named Kickstarter to gain necessary funding through individuals.  This site allows individuals and companies alike to "back" a product, service, creative idea, etc through pledging a dollar amount towards the project in return for some reward.  The initial goal was to raise a total of $10,000.  Taposé wound up with over 1200 backers and over $26,000 of pledges.  So what did they build and how well does it work?

Paper for iPad Review


Paper (App Store), by FiftyThree, holds the number one "free" spot in the App store at the time of this article's writing.  I put free in quotations because although the app does come with 1 style of drawing, any others will cost you $1.99 per style.  Paper takes the much known idea of drawing on the iPad, and simplifies the User Interface while delivering high performance artistic styles.

Word Lens Review for iPhone and iPad

Living in or traveling to a country which speaks Spanish or French and you don't?  Look no further than Word Lens.  While there are numerous apps that will provide word by word or sentence by sentence translation, none will do so in real-time using your iPhone or iPad's camera.  Word Lens does just that.  In real time, simply point your camera at a text of Spanish or French (depending on what pack you have) and the app will quickly translate the language in print to English (or vice-versa).  Read on for more on this app. … [Read more...]
