USB Disk for iPad – Document Transfers Made Easy

Total Score:  28

I went shopping on iTunes for a simple document transfer app. There are a lot of good ones that make use of a cloud, but I wanted one that was between my iPad and me.  USB Disk for iPad and USB Disk Pro for iPad were just what I needed.   Using iTunes, you can easily transfer files from your drives to the app.  Once the files are in the app, you can create folders, move them from one folder to the next and view the files.  It is a handy way to store documents you use regularly.

This app (I use the pro version) gets a thumbs up for sustainability.  I’ve had it downloaded for two years and continue to find it valuable.

Clear Your Mind and Clear Your Task List with the Clear App

Total Score:  29.5

I am constantly searching for a great to-do list app.  I have tried and used a number of them.  All of them work if I put in the effort to keep them up.  So, why didn’t I stay with them?  I think it’s because I haven’t found one that easily lets me move tasks around, create multiple lists, and frankly is just great looking.  Clear has it all. I have been using it for both my personal and work life for about a week now and have been very pleased.  I have already recommended it to my friends – which to me is the best review I can give.

WebMD for iPad Helps You Manage Your Healthcare

Total Score:  27.5

The WebMD that you have used for years is now available on your iPad.  I think this version is a little better than the internet one because of the touch features.  Searching symptoms, conditions, drugs and treatment, first aid and even the closest local health listings are as easy as opening up the app. Continue reading “WebMD for iPad Helps You Manage Your Healthcare”

Pinterest – Photos with Friends

Total Score:  29

The  Pinterest app for iPhone and iPad is social media – with a twist.  It is designed for people to share photos and videos that intrigue, inspire or challenge them.  With this app you can see what others have added — or pinned — and, if you have an account, upload your own photos.   If it’s true that a picture is worth a thousand words, then Pinterest has a lot to say.  It is fun to explore and is visually appealing.

Discovr Finds Connections Between Apps

Total Score:  28.5

 I have to admit that it is counterintuitive for an app review site to suggest an app that can help you find new apps.   Nevertheless, I have to recommend Discovr.  It is in the entertainment category and is both informative and entertaining.  The simple explanation of this app is that you type in the name of an app you like and it plots possible connections to other apps with similar features.   For instance, if you type in KINDLE, you are connected to iBooks, MegaReader, Bluefire Reader and Book Crawler.   It’s a visual, “If you like this, you might like this.” Continue reading “Discovr Finds Connections Between Apps”
