NeuBible Review: A Bible App With An Emphasis On Design

In some way or another, every Bible app available for the iPhone seems to be on an amateurish level when it comes to design and usability. Features, however difficult to make use of and ugly to look at, take priority over something that looks and works great. NeuBible is different. It’s the first Bible app […]

Flipboard

How To Get Your First 3,600 Flipboard Followers

Flipboard is one of my favorite, most-used apps. The reason is simple: it keeps me informed. But until very recently, I had only been using Flipboard to read content. I was really missing out on 50% of the experience and many of the benefits. What changed? I merely began organizing content in my main feed […]

Pixelmator Quick Review: The Best Photoshop Alternative Hands-Down

I am a long time graphic, app and web designer. I learned how to design using Adobe Photoshop 7 (before there was such as thing as Creative Suite, much less Creative Cloud). So I’ve seen a lot of changes come to Photoshop over the years. I’ve also been on the lookout for a cheaper alternative. […]

How To Take Better iPhone Pictures + The Best Photo Apps

My iPhone IS my camera. I have a DSLR laying around the house somewhere, but I hardly ever use it anymore. My iPhone is more convenient and the quality improves with every new model. There are even rumors that the iPhone 6s or 7 may be able to take DSLR-like images. But the iPhone is […]

The Best White Noise Apps for iPhone and Mac Reviewed

As I type this article on my brand new 11″ Macbook Air I’ve got some white noise playing in the background. There are days when I just can’t work without it and today is one of them. People use white noise for all kinds of things. Some people use it to help them fall asleep […]

Galcon 2 is the Best iPhone, iPad and Mac Game You’ve Never Played

Are you bored of being bored with the game selection on your iPhone, iPad and/or Mac? Do you crave a game with infinite replay-ability—that’s never the same twice? That takes some strategy to master? That can be played solo or multiplayer? How about a game that can be played in as quick as 1 minute […]

Enlight App Review: An Outstanding, Unique Mobile Photo Editing Powerhouse

Wow. There are a lot of photo editing, filtering and manipulating apps available for iOS. Did we really need another one? Well, ya. Apart from the slightly different filters and editing tools, we really needed one that has an intuitive user interface (UI); something powerful but easy to use. That’s Enlight. In my view the […]

Do Banking Apps Really Suck?

Editor’s note: This is a guest post by Dave Landry jr, a marketing and finance expert who spends his free time writing and salivating over the latest tech releases. Before the first ATM machine debuted in 1969, people who needed cash had to go to a bank branch and write themselves a check — if they could […]

If Product Hunt Was Just For Apps…

Product Hunt is awesome. But what if there was a Product Hunt that was, and always would be, exclusively focused on apps; a place where non-app “clutter” didn’t exist? What if the site was built for the masses who USE tech products, rather than the great folks that MAKE them? What if being a curator (deciding which […]

These Red Apps Keep You Well Read

I’m starting to wonder whether or not some smart developers behind great reading apps choose the color red for their icons, interfaces and general branding on purpose (red = read?). On my iPhone, at least, every app I use to get some sort of reading done is red with the exceptions of iBooks and Yahoo’s […]

15 new tools for app developers

Awhile back I wrote 100 terrific tools for coders and developers. It was a big hit—the day it was published became DailyTekk’s highest traffic day ever. That was, of course, because it was featured on the homepage of Hacker News (thank you to whoever submitted it!). More recently, a guest author contributed a  list of 100 […]

Strides habit tracking app review: it works

We all want to be better people. There’s no question about that. But can an app really help make that happen? I’ve recently tested an app that can, at least incrementally, help people improve. It’s called Strides ($3.99), it’s a goal and habit tracker and it’s one of the top paid apps in the App […]

Horizon: shoot perfectly horizontal video every time (review)

Horizon ($1.99)—an iPhone app that can [highlight]ensure you’re filming only horizontal videos[/highlight] despite how you may be holding the phone—has been around for awhile already, but recently came out with an update. In other words, even though I already loved the idea of the app, I now had the perfect excuse for testing it out […]

Togethera: private family photo and video sharing done right (review)

For months I had been searching for an app that would allow me to share thoughts, photos and videos or a more personal nature with close family members. My search started with Path and ended with Togethera. Path, and a number of additional apps I tried, just weren’t private enough and/or didn’t have the feature […]

There are a few things I like about Theneeds that set it apart from other apps. Before you […]

Passible: the best password management app, hands-down (review)

Passwords are the bane of digital existence. They’re a pain to remember, they’re hackable and there’s way too many of them. Until I came across the [highlight style=”dark”]simple, secure and design-driven password management solution[/highlight] Passible (free to $9.99 per year for premium version), I hated all password managers more than the passwords they attempted to manage.
