Satellite Safari for iOS review

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.

Evomail for iPad Aims to Re-Invent Email, At a Cost

10:00 AM, May. 2nd, 2013 · · Quick Look Review

I've been testing the release candidate they submitted to Apple, and from what I've seen it's a respectable first volley of a product whose path will be, in the words of its founders, "a marathon and not a sprint." Part of the reinvention is UI-related, and part is functionality, specifically allowing full-time push notifications from a 3rd party client. This reinvention, however, comes at a cost: you need to provide Evomail access to your email account so their servers can log in to check for mail and deliver these push notifications.
