Best Prompter



Developer Quote: "Professional teleprompter for iPad and iPhone allows you to create and smoothly scroll scripts during a speech."

- COST:   Free  - APP STORE STARS:  3
- Categories: Business, Lifestyle, Native, Productivity, Recorder, Universal
Part of getting your college degree is taking a public speaking class. As a business associate, you may have to make speeches on a regular basis. I know it comes naturally to some - great ease and warmth in delivering words to huge audiences. For others, it can become a nightmare getting the words out without stammering or losing your place. Here to help is Best Prompter, a convenient way to have your speech scroll down your device so you don't have to stand at the podium sweating!

Best Prompter is helpful for presenters, teachers, lecturers, students, video and podcast makers or anyone who needs to use scripts, notes or cue cards while speaking in front of a group. Best Prompter has many savvy features to make your speeches a breeze. Let's take a look at some of them below:

AUDIO RECORDER:
- Allows recording multiple audio files for one script
- Use it during the training sessions to check your speech
- Listen to audio records to analyse and improve your speech
- Record speeches during a presentation to evaluate how good you were
- Share audio records via iTunes file sharing to your iMac or PC

BBCODE TEXT FORMATTING:
- BBCode - native formatting tags for internet forums.
- Create a layout and highlight your script with headers, bold, italic and other tags
- Create the table of contents for the script basing on header tags

GENERAL FEATURES:
- In-app script editing
- Smooth text scrolling
- Full screen mode
- Change scrolling speed, text size, mirror mode, all caps mode on the fly
- Scroll text with gestures and scroll bar
- Easy navigation via the table of contents
- Elapsed time of the speech

MARKERS:
- Markers help focusing attention on the recent parts of the scrolled script.
- Markers positions can be rearranged.


The multitude of features in Best Prompter guarantees you ease in re-arranging the speech to make it easy to see and read. In my opinion, the font size and color are the greatest assists in your delivery. Scrolling, of course, is a must-have for any teleprompter.

Besides general "must have" features such as varying text sizes, colors, smooth scrolling, mirror mode and so on, Best Prompter also has text formatting. This allows formatting the text in bold, italic, lists, etc. and creating a table of contents with header tags. You can take advantage of In App purchase to add audio recorder functionality. This function allows recording speeches. Try using Best Prompter next time you have an important speech prepared and ready to deliver!
COOL CONCLUSION: "Best Prompter will have you speaking clearly, easily and stress free with its teleprompting features to the most discriminating audiences."

Steinway Etude



Developer Quote: "Etude is the ultimate app for learning music on the piano. It's all part of Steinway's new suite of digital tools for the 21st century musician."

 
- COST: Free    - APP STORE STARS: 4
- Categories: Education, Entertainment, iPad, Lifestyle, Music, Native

Learning to play music is a huge benefit to anyone for so many reasons. There are mathematical factors to music that help students better comprehend that subject in school. The engrossing and soothing nature of physically playing music distracts from daily stresses, while also being a huge help in anger management and depression. Moreover, just for the love of music, learning an instrument is simply a joy! Steinway Etude will help coach you on on how to understand and play notes and chords. Still, it does even more than that as you can see from the examples for everyone below!

FOR BEGINNERS:
This is one of the easiest ways to begin learning. Select the song you like from the In-App music store, download it, and Etude will show you the exact keys to press throughout the song. Improve your practice by slowing the beat, and using each hand separately.

FOR PROS
No need to tote around bulky paper or turn music book pages. Digital sheet music is so much simpler.

MUSIC STORE
Steinway has collaborated with major music publishers to provide authentic piano arrangements of your favorite songs.




Some of the musical and helpful features of Steinway Etude are as follows:

- Built-in MIDI synthesizer lets you hear the piece aloud. Change tempo and toggle parts on and off.

- On-screen keyboard display shows the keys being played, distinguishing each part with separate colors.

- Two ways to see music: sheet music and piano roll visualization.

- Fullscreen button lets you hide everything except for the music.

- Songs include classical music, pop hits, showtunes, and themes from movies and TV shows.

- Request your fave song, and you will be notified when it is available.

Digital sheet music is really a genius idea. The page automatically scrolls when the notes are finished playing on a page. It's really a great tool for pianists. You can still page through the sheets manually as needed though. Here you'll find crisp, clear print of the notes, or a view of the notes by color as they are about to be played. Use the Play button to practice as much as you want. Adjust the speed, or adjust the settings to use one hand at a time. This is truly an excellent app for those wanting to practice on their piano or keyboard. The app comes with 2 sets of sheet music. You can purchase additional music for $2.99 or get it free in-app. Since I have personally purchased a number of paper sheet music pages for my own practice over the years, I can tell you this is a great price. No more crinkled, yellowed or old papers in the piano bench. Have it all on your iPad for the ultimate in convenience!

COOL CONCLUSION: "Steinway Etude is a crisp, sleek and modern way to view sheet music while playing your keyboard or piano."

When you have a box of photos you want to display with not a whole lot of shelf or wall in your room, it's really helpful to use a collage effect in a frame to get as many pictures as possible in one place. Such collages are made attractive by their outer frame design and inner photo separators. Frame Magic merges photos into one lovely and unique framed photo in this way. You can try out up to 30 frames with 6 photos. Many options are included such as border width adjustment, corner roundness, shadow size and frame ratio, accomplished with only one tap. You can also apply background color and 10 beautiful predefined background patterns. Frame Magic can be used in both portrait and landscape mode. Some of the creative features of this photography app are as follows:

You basically are shown the various templates in which you may insert your photos. Choose your backgrounds, make your size and preference adjustments, and you have completed an original photo collage created from your snapshot collection! There are little levers that you tap to adjust width, corners and sizes of photo openings.

Wooords




Developer Quote: "Wooords is a freeform wooord game with unique fridge magnet gameplay that removes all distractions, it's just you and the letters."

- COST: $1.99     - APP STORE STARS: 5
- Categories: Entertainment, Games, Native, Word Game


Word gamers, there are a multitude of games which give you the opportunity to test your brain and vocabulary. How about a game with simple rules such as moving refrigerator magnets around repeatedly to form as many words as possible? This is the theme of Wooords. The high-resolution letters just glide around the board easily, and you get bonus points for larger words, of course. Each puzzle has one or more 9-letter words providing you an opportunity to rack up a huge amount of points. Some of the fun features of Wooords are as follows:

- Create words in quick succession to get combos and multipliers.
- 3 game modes to test your vocabulary, speed and concentration.
- 60+ puzzles will push you to the limits.
- Challenge your friends to a daily puzzle.
- GameCenter Leaderboards and Achievements.
- Original sound track
- Synced across multiple devices


I found the game rather addicting once I started to play. Instead of just putting in a few minutes worth, I started puzzling over the letters knowing there were tons more words I hadn't even begun to form yet. Another great bonus to Wooords is that the whole family can enjoy and benefit from playing an educational and brain busting game. There are no lengthy rules to learn, no maneuvers to figure out. Just move those brightly colored magnets at will, and make the longest and most words you can!

COOL CONCLUSION: "Wooords is simple and yet challenging word game fun that all ages can enjoy at any time, no refrigerator needed!"

Developer Quote: "Orchestra is the to-do list that's connected to everyone you work with."

 
- COST: Free    - APP STORE STARS: 4-1/2
- Categories: Communications, Lifestyle, Lists, Native, Organization, Productivity
We always have tasks to accomplish. Not a day goes by without checking off a few items on a list. Sometimes you may share this list with others. Perhaps you are working with your kids on completing a project, have lists of supplies that are constantly added to by family, work with associates on business tasks at work, etc. We just seem to work in teams more than by ourselves sometimes, and let's face it, the extra help is always a bonus!

You need to keep tabs though on who is accomplishing what, and how much is left of the list or project to be completed. Sometimes you need to send a quick message to verify an answer or plan outline. These are the perfect occasions on which to use Orchestra for both your personal and business task lists. It is a super helpful product that organizes your task while allowing you to communicate with those on your team.

- Chat with others you're working with (faster than SMS)

The voice recognition feature of Orchestra comes in handy when you don't want to stop and type your notes. The clean and simple outline makes it a breeze to interact with participants. Orchestra is available on the web at www.orchestra.com, so those who don't have iDevices can still benefit from using this productive, task management system. You can assign tasks to anyone in the world via email or text message, and chat with others in real-time about what needs to be accomplished. When used on your device, Orchestra syncs automatically between your phone and the web so you always obtain access to your lists. I can't think of a better way to simplify life with your family and business needs in mind than with this organizational tool!

Tips & Tricks For Your Device: 9/18/11-Street View Images



Tips & Tricks For Your Device may teach you something new, or remind you of a neat function you've forgotten about! Tap the title of TODAY'S TIP to see other helpful tips!



TODAY'S TIP: STREET VIEW IMAGES -

Question?
You are heading out to a friend's house for dinner. You have the directions from Google Maps, but you would like to know what to expect when you reach the actual neighborhood. Are you in the right place? What exactly does the house look like so you'll recognize it when you drive up?


Solution!
Street View helps solve this little dilemma. Did you know that when you have a complete address in your Contacts, if you tap on it, the name of the Contact will pop up along with a little orange circle with a peg man in it. Tap on the man, and you will be instantly shown the neighborhood with the exact house pinpointed of the friend whom you are going to visit. It's actually amazing to see the house, car and entire neighborhood.

Okay, don't panic. There are a few privacy issues Google has addressed here. First off, they have blurred the license plates of cars, as well as included a Report button if you don't want your home shown. You can rotate your view, and actually walk the street by tapping on the white arrows superimposed on the street with the street name. You can also use this feature directly in Google Maps. Street View is not live, and information probably has been gathered within the past 6 months. So as a friend demonstrated to me, Street View lives right in your Contacts, and not just in the main Google Maps icon!

Vocre



Developer Quote: "Want to have a conversation with someone who doesn't speak your language? Try Vocre, it's a free app that is incredibly easy and fun to use."

- COST:   Free  - APP STORE STARS: 2-1/2
- Categories: Languages, Lifestyle, Native, Travel

Traveling is part of everyone's life today. And I don't mean just domestic travel. More often that not, your business will take you overseas. If not that, then vacation plans whether by cruise or plane will. It's exciting though to sample the worlds of others and to absorb their culture. What needs to be dealt with here though is the language barrier. You can use Vocre to take care of that small problem as it translates right there on the spot so that whatever you want to say is instantly spoken in the destination language right when you need it.

Vocre lets you set your native and target languages first of all. Also, you may set your speaker to male or female. Then you speak into the mic with your question or comment, rotate the phone and it puts out your words in the language chosen as your target one. Tap the button to reverse the languages, and the recipient of your speech can then answer you back. As you can imagine, you then flip the phone again to hear the translation in your native tongue.

This all seems easy enough, and is honestly a great attempt at solving language barriers between travelers. However, a few fixes are needed. You have to flip the phone a specific way to enable the translation. This takes some wrist flexibility and patience till you get it down pat. Additionally, you are given a specific amount of credits which when used up, you would need to replenish in order to continue using the app. Top in App purchases allow you to purchase additional credits so that is easy enough, but could become expensive.



Considering the app is free, I would definitely give it a try to see how well you adapt to it. With Vocre, you are essentially able to talk in any language. It is kind of neat to say something, flip the phone and hear it repeated in another language (although not in your voice). Take Vocre on your travels with you, or use if it a non-native speaking business client with whom you must interact comes into town. You'll be pleased you had a handy translator in your pocket!

COOL CONCLUSION: "Vocre provides instant spoken translations to make your travels easier and your comprehension complete."

Fotobabble



Developer Quote: "The Fotobabble iPhone App lets you quickly create and easily add your voice to photos and instantaneously share those Talking Photos with friends."

- COST: Free     - APP STORE STARS: 3
- Categories: Lifestyle, Native, Photos, Photography, Recorder, Social Networking


Have you ever sent your mom or grandma a talking photo frame in which was placed a beautiful picture of your family with your voice inserted in the memory chip of the frame? These frames have been very popular at connecting families and melting hearts. These frames can be pretty pricey, but you don't have to spend money on the purchase and shipment of this type of gift any more. Provided your family and friends use Facebook, Twitter or e-mail, you can send them a Fotobabble photo which contains your picture, some fancy editing and a recording of you or your family's voice. The best part of all is that it is extremely easy to snap, record and send your photo, yet brings so much delight to the recipient. Some of the charming features and uses of Fotobabble are as follows:

- Snap or select or a photo
- Speak into your microphone to record your voice
- Share with friends via email, Facebook or Twitter.
- Capture and share a special or funny moment immediately with both image and voice
- Send realtime Talking Postcards to friends from your travels
- Send holiday and birthday greetings personalized with your photo, your voice and one of our many themes
- Create personalized, engaging Facebook status messages
- Crop, rotate, and add fun effects, text and stickers to your Fotobabble photos
- Improved usability with bigger, slicker record and playback buttons
- Improved uploading performance and reliability




Basically, when you open the app, you need to create a Fotobabble account. This takes a minute to do. Then you link your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts (which you may also unlink at any time). Now you are ready to either snap a new photo, or use one from your photo album. Once you have your pic, (clear your throat a few times), add your recording and send the creation merrily on its way by one of the three sharing methods above! Photo creation and sharing could not be simpler!

Once you start using Fotobabble, you'll see how boring static photos can be. It's so much more exciting to receive a Fotobabble and get double the sensory input! Your photo is personalized which takes infinitely less time than it would to type a special note. Not only does Fotobabble work well on the app itself, but you can go straight to the website to create, enjoy and share your photos at any time and from anywhere.
COOL CONCLUSION: "Fotobabble is a fun, unique and engaging way to send auditory photo greetings to family and friends."

TNT's Crosswords for Men of a Certain Age



Developer Quote: "Being a middle-aged man is ripe with funny moments. Men of a Certain Age crossword app aims to encapsulate those times with words".
 
- COST: Free     - APP STORE STARS: 3-1/2
- Categories: Entertainment, Games, iPad, Native, Puzzle
Well, I've never been a crosswords puzzle genius. Although I love word games, I have a hard time being patient and fitting the right amount of letters into each crosswords grid. Since TNT's Crosswords for Men of a Certain Age looked interesting, not terribly difficult and with humorous undertones, I thought I would give it a try. I'm sure glad I did. This iPad app makes it relaxing and easy to do crosswords. With both a Hint and Solve button, you need never feel aggravated at not guessing the correct answers.

Each crossword focuses on those things that interest men, much like the show. From “Ego Friendly” to “Hot Babes, Stocks and Dogs”, the era of the 50-year "young" man is portrayed with themes and language that fit that stage perfectly. The crosswords have a pleasing degree of ease with a touch of challenge. Mostly, I appreciate the simplicity in moving around the grid. It is no trouble at all to skip around and answer those questions you think you may know, or delete those responses you know are definitely wrong. Try this fun game anytime you feel like stretching your brain a bit, and have some down time! Oh, and you don't need to be a man or even middle-aged to try out this crosswords game!


COOL CONCLUSION: "TNT's Crosswords for Men of a Certain Age is a crosswords puzzle game that will entertain, amuse and educate you all at the same time!"
--Date/Version: Released 6/14/11 - Version 1.0
--iOS/Age Rating:  This app requires iOS 3.2 or later. Rated 12+.
