Microsoft Courier Type App Ported to iOS – Tapose Review

Tapose

I’m loving this app but there’s much improvements to be made.  The media insert still not working after the latest update on Wednesday.  Turning pages is a real pain, you cannot just swipe for next page, instead you have to hit that top left or right page corner, now this is lame.  Some of the lag problem been tackled in the latest update but still traces of screen lock up here and there. For us in Asia, the worst part is that the app does not support Chinese nor Japanese input , real bummer (well, emoticons work at least, LOL).

Is it that bad? well, the app has real potential but I suspect it require much horsepower to get this app running. On the new iPad, it seems ok, more laggy on the iPad 2, for the iPad 1, well….don’t even think about it.

I hope the developers can work out the problem fast cause this app is getting a lot of attention for its innovative interface but at the same time, bad vibes for its problems.

Bendi – The Flexi iPad Stand – Now on Kickstarter

Yet another great Kickstarter project. Bendi is an iPad stand exactly like no other stand, and probably the only one you’ll need. Bendi works wherever you want it to work: on a table, on your desk, in the car, or in a meeting. It even works with all the major tablets, not just the iPad. Bendi comprised of three parts, a strong suction device to hold the iPad, a bendable arm and either a magnetic (cost extra) or clamp base to suit your needs. The Bendi is seeking a pledge goal of US$5,000 on Kickstarter and have so far doubled that already.  The lowest pledge for a Bendi is US$55, is that worth it? you be the judge. For more details, head over to their Kickstarter page linked here and check out the following video.

Nice Read – The Case for Buying iPads for Your Kids

Image from Henriksent

Came across this article today from Brad MOON-WIRED over at Gizmodo addressing an issue that a lot of parents faces – should we be buying our kids an iPad. Does it justify the cost? Would it be too early? Would they be just gaming on it all day?……

Brad raised a few good points in starting early with the iPad for your kids. I don’t want to hijack his post and extract the points here but definitely a good read especially if you’re a parent and with kids yearning for an iPad. Check out the article here, The Case for Buying iPads for Your Kids.

iPhoto on iPad Demo Video

Ever since the Apple big event last week, been getting a lot of questions from ppl regarding the new iPhoto app for iPad and iPhone.  Whether it’s any good and worth US$4.99. Well, to answer all, nothing beats a demo video so ppl can see it for themselves.  I personally find the iPad version more appealing with that extra screen estate.  For the iPhone….nah.

iPad 3 Pricing Rumors – Starts at US$499

This came in via the Mac Observer where they quoted off MacRumors’ post earlier this week, an iPad 3 pricing sheet posted to Sina Weibo.  All across we noted a price increase of about US$80.  The first column above states the model, the second column being the iPad 2 launch prices, the third column being the rumored iPad 3 prices and the fourth column, prices in Chinese RMB.

DOes the better display and faster chip justify the price hike, you tell me.
