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.
Hang your iPad on an exercise bike, a microphone, a camera tripod, in your garage, or under your car while you work on it. Where is up to you. How is built into the Monkey Kit.
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.
The MXL AC-406 Professional Series USB desktop speakerphone functions as a high quality speaker phone for web conferencing and as a speaker for playing music from your desktop in between those calls.
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.
Ulysses III is a complete rewrite of the legendary Ulysses II writing tool. It uses a wide range of OS X technologies to create a focused, elegant writing environment. By using Markdown, it separates how the document looks from the content. Version 1.0.1 is missing a few minor features, but is a solid and impressive initial release. John Martellaro liked it a lot.
Evomail, an iPad-only email client that aims to truly "re-invent email," was released today. 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.
The Versastand from Ergotech provides a sturdy desktop stand for your iPad that provides 360 degree rotation when needed, and then folds to 1.5-in thick for portability. This one is a winner on many levels.
