WebMD for iPad Review

webMD iPad review

Medical apps can become quite expensive for the iPad or iPhone.  I have seen a few medical apps heading upwards of $499 (DDS GP).  You won’t find that here.  In fact, the WebMD app is free and the account that you can create to use with the app is too.  WebMD’s claim to fame was their Symptom Checker.  This same symptom checker is available in their iPad app and works in a very similar fashion.  Meant to be an unofficial diagnostic tool, WebMD does a good job of giving you medical information. Read on for our full WebMD for iPad Review. … [Read more...]

With iTunes Match, you can listen to your music from any iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple TV. All of your music gets stored in iCloud, including those songs you ripped from your CD’s.

iResize review for iPhone and iPad

mzm.ebhpfnfw.256x256-75

iResize fills a very specific need and is an app that I have found extremely helpful.  There are literally hundreds of apps dealing with editing photos, most recently iPhoto which is Apples premier photo editing app.  However, I found myself needing to resize images on the iPad in order to upload on wesbites, email, or just to save file space.  Usually, I do not just want to resize 1 image, but multiples at a time.  Most apps require each image to be opened, resized, and saved.  I find this tedious and time consuming.  iResize allows batch resizing of images based on a preselected default.  Read on for details of how it works in our iResize review for iPhone and iPad. Setup On launch you will select a button called ‘Set Up Quick … [Read more...]
