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.

Cloud – Easily the Best File and Link Sharing App for Mac

Ever want to share a file or a picture with your friends instantly? In the past, I used to upload whatever files or pictures I want to share with my buddies to Dropbox or SugarSync and then share it.  It is a bit cumbersome as I have to first upload and then share it.  Although I have quite a bit of storage on both my Dropbox and SugarSync account, but the files or pictures might not be something that I want to store.  That’s quite a bit of a problem as that creates a housekeeping chore, that is, I have to remember to go back and delete all those unwanted files.

In come CloudApp (or “Cloud” in the Mac App Store), a free file and link sharing app available on the Mac App Store last week.  The app itself been around for some time and this new version 1.5 is a gorgeous makeover which features a chic yet simple interface.

The application, once installed, sits on the menu bar.  You can drag any files or picture to it and it will copy the link to whatever you dragged to your clipboard and you can instantly paste it in Twitter, Facebook or email.  The uploaded file resides in your CloudApp webpage and another neat thing is there’s a view counter to each of the linked files, great for those stats lover.

The CloudApp also features plugins called Raindrops allowing you to share using CloudApp without leaving your favorite Mac apps. There’s a Raindrop to share pictures from iPhoto, bookmark the page in Safari, Chrome, and Firefox, the canvas you’re working on in Photoshop, automatically upload screenshots, upload selected iTunes tracks and many more.

To get your free copy of the CloudApp, hop over to the Mac App Store or check them out at he website, http://getcloudapp.com/.

First Look – BOOKback from DODOcase for iPad 2 and iPhone 4

DODOcase just launched a whole line of DODOcase for iPad 2 but I’m interested in is the back cover on the iPad 2 they have, called the BOOKback, which protects the backside of the iPad 2 as well as the iPhone 4.  Take a look at the above video from the guys over at the iphoneblog. It is pretty much the same as the GelaSkins I reviewed a while ago,  Very easy to apply and I bet those are 3M adhesive as well, meaning they can be taken off and reapply fairly easily. Judging by the looks of the BOOKback in the video, it sure looks neat. Pricing on the BOOKback, US$19.95 for the iPad 2 and US$8.95 for the iPhone 4.
