News : NPR

October 31, 2010 by Ryan Ray · 1 Comment 

The last of the almighty news apps reviews! I’ve been covering my four favorite news apps over the last week. If you’ve missed any of those here they are… AP, BBC, and CNN. So now that you’ve checked those out, or are about to, here is my last news app. I would have to say that this is my favorite news organization, slightly biased for them, and their app is pretty fun to use too. It’s NPR’s iPhone app of course, NPR stands for National Public Radio if you weren’t in the know. Now that you are, let’s check out the app!

Dragon Dictation Review

Have you ever wished you could just talk to your phone to type an email, or tell it what and who to text? Well thankfully we can tell our iPhones who to call, and what music to play. We can even ask it to shuffle or simply for the time. We just can’t use speech to text yet. There is an app out there though that tries to save us from this lack of features on our iPhones.

News : CNN Review

Back, back, back again with another news app review. This time this app isn’t free, but usually with a paid app you should get a bit more quality and features. Let’s see if CNN lives up to that. If you were wondering what it costs, right now it is $1.99 in the app store. Worth it? I think so, let’s see why.

Just a splash/loading screen. Nothing to see here, move a long…

Hey, I’m back again with the news apps part two! If you missed out on the first app, AP Mobile, click on the name to go check it out! This time we are going to jump across the Atlantic and talk about their shot at an iPhone app. It’s brought to us by the renown BBC. If you aren’t aware BBC stands for British Broadcasting Company headquartered in London, just wanted to make sure everyone was aware if they weren’t already. Just remember knowledge is power! Anyway let’s see how the BBC delivers the news via the iPhone

News : AP Mobile Review

Welcome to the evening news, I’m your host… That’s what we are used to hearing every day on the evening news. Before there was this thing called the internet, or the iPhone and it’s apps, that’s how we got our news. There was the news paper and the evening news on TV. You had to tune in at a certain time to stay informed. With the advent of the internet and mobile phones the news organizations have happily embraced them, and now we can get our news anytime we want. Heck we can even get push notifications on the iPhone of breaking news. It’s great!

Instagram App Review

Happy Sunday to everyone, I’m here to review yet ANOTHER photo app. Seriously I love them and it’s great that so many other developers keep building interesting photo apps. In past reviews I’ve always looked for one photo app to rule them all, I still haven’t quite found it. So I’m still out collecting great photo apps to fulfill one need. That need is to simply make some great photos on a camera that’s always with me.

Trainyard Review

Trainyard Express the game of the hour! This game is not only addicting, and very fun to play, it has a great backstory and is really cool the success it’s brought for one developer. Hopefully they continue into the future!

If there are two things out there a lot of us can agree upon, it’s great pictures and food! Definitely at least the food part right? Well there is definitely one thing I notice among smart phone users, and that is they love to share pictures of the food they are about to ingest. Count me in on that category, I don’t know what it is but it seems like a cool thing to share. No matter if it’s on Facebook, Twitter, or what have you, there is food everywhere. What does this have to do with the iPhone? Well, read on to see this new app and social service combining food and pictures.

Starbucks On The iPhone

October 8, 2010 by Ryan Ray · 1 Comment 

We’ve talked about Starbucks a little bit before, you can read a full on app review over here. But going a long with our series of apps you can order from this app takes a little different turn. Sadly you can’t order from the Starbucks app, but that’s why I wanted to bring it to everyone’s attention. I think you should be able to place a drink order and be able to stop by and pick it up without waiting. The current app allows you to get pretty close to that. You can build a custom drink, or order a familiar, old standby. You can check out different roasts, find store, check out food, even look for jobs! Sadly like said, no way to order and get your stuff at your local Starbucks. If you are out there Starbucks listen up and implement this somehow.

Pizza Hut App

October 6, 2010 by Ryan Ray · Leave a Comment 

Here we are again continuing with our short series of shopping apps. I’m trying to feature ones that let you order from your iPhone since it’s somewhat of a shift in the way we use our smart phones. No more hassle of communication errors when ordering, or waiting in line. Order by tapping and pick it up on your way by. The ultimate convenience!

Since I’m a college student, and we college students apparently worship Pizza I thought we’d talk about the Pizza Hut app right now. This app has one functionality and that is to get you to order Pizza Hut no matter where you are. So let’s take a look at how you do that.
