Getting frustrated with that red "archive" button when you try to delete a message on your iOS device? Melissa Holt is here to report that there's a trick to select whether you want to archive or delete each message, and you can also turn off the archiving feature entirely. Hooray! She also reports that she likes pie, which is somewhat less relevant.
We hope you never need the apps Vern Seward looks at this week in Free on iTunes, but you'll be glad to have one if you are ever involved in an auto accident. Car Accident Report, Car Accident Sidekick, and Accident Wizard. Check it out.
Your iPhone or iPod touch makes for a handy camera, and both can take nice images. That doesn't, however, mean you won't need to make some quick adjustments on the go. You can turn to a long list of apps designed to help with that, including Apple's own iPhoto, but if you only need to make some minor adjustments, the Photos app has a nearly-hidden editor just waiting to help out.
Amazon unveiled its Cloud Drive Photos for the iPhone and iPod touch over the weekend along with a companion Mac app in what looks like a move to compete with Apple's iCloud Photo Stream feature.

Several companies offer individual solutions that compete with iCloud features, but they aren't tied in at the system level like Apple's service is on iOS and OS X. Even still, competing services like Cloud Drive Photos tend to offer more storage for free, and that may be enough to turn some iCloud users to alternatives.
Like shooting videos, but hate making movies with them? Vern Seward offers up three quick movie makers for iPhone or iPad that may fit the bill in this week's Free on iTunes. Perfect Video Lite, Drop n Roll, and Takes.
Satellite Safari is a realtime, visual guide to hundreds of satellites in orbit. This universal iOS app will tell when they pass overhead and where they are right now. You can follow along in orbit, with the satellite, see what it looks like, look at the ground track or watch it pass overhead from your location on the ground. It's also the official app for the Kickstarter SkyCube mission.
Those who want to charge an iPhone and an iPad, on the go, at the same time with one charger should check out the Gum Max Duo from Just Mobile. It does both and fits in most pockets.
Are you a man? Then you'll want to take a look as the apps Vern Seward has lined up in this week's Free on iTunes. iPedia Wiki, Uncrate, and WhatKnot.
