- COST: Free    - APP STORE STARS: 5
- Categories: Cards, Communications, Email, Lifestyle, Native, Social Networking

There are so many aisles of greeting cards in the store for every occasion and sentiment. Still, sometimes it's hard to find just the right one. I personally like a card that is sentimental, but not overly so, and using a dash of humor blended in for balance. It's a time saver being able to use my phone to send cards for every imaginable occasion. justWink Greeting Cards have more than 200 cards that will fit all the obvious and not-so-obvious occasions for sending them. Some of the sensational features of this greeting card, social networking iPhone app are as follows:

- Cards that shuffle between, funny, bold, cute, trendy, sassy, heartfelt, sweet, and beautiful

- Cards that open and flip and make people smile just like real card

- Send paper cards hand-delivered by your local mail carrier

- Customize these cards like you can any greeting card: Add your own note, drop in a photo, and even add your own signature (or finger doodle) for that authentic “I Actually Care About You” feel!

- Personalization – choose to add inside the cards: Your own message, signature, photo from your phone

- Share via mail, email, Facebook, text message
Sure, there are always Birthdays, but you have other intriguing categories in justWink Greeting Cards such as Just Because, Congrats, Thanks, On The Fly!, Bromance!, Friendship, Couples and much more. Within each category, there are sub-categories. For example, inside of the Thanks group you will find Funny Thanks and Just Thanks. View the cards on a shelf just like in your local store or swipe sideways to see each one at a time. Swipe again to open the card and read the sentiment on the inside. These cards are unique in both graphics and images, not clich├ęd and can be sweet, flirty and downright funny. The feature I find most unique from other greeting card apps is the way that the cards animate in opening just like a regular paper card would. It's a really special touch. Add your photo or message if you wish, your signature, and you're done! Your card is on its way in a matter of minutes - a relief if you've remembered your friend's birthday too late!

Winq



Developer Quote: "Within seconds Winq lets you share your contact details with a new friend, save new contacts in iPhone Address Book and even find people on social networks."

 
- COST: 99 cents    - APP STORE STARS: 4
- Categories: Communications, Lifestyle, Lists, Native, Productivity, Social Networking, Utilities

*PROMOS available. E-mail cooliphoneapps1@gmail.com for one.*


We are a very social and high-tech generation. Almost everyone these days has several social network IDs, addresses, phone numbers and perhaps a website. There is a great deal of time and effort used to input all this data into your Contacts list when you need to store a business acquaintance, friend or family member's information. Do you really want to type this one letter at a time into your device?

Winq takes this big data input job and makes it incredibly simple! Winq is a QR-code (or type of bar code) which when scanned yields all the information that has been entered into it. The function of these codes is to enable instant action accessing data. Some of the useful scanning bar code features of Winq are as follows:

- Create multiple contact cards and store them in QR-format on your iPhone;
- Share your contact cards with others in fractions of a second;
- E-mail contact QR-codes;
- Scan and decode QR-codes: all formats are supported;
- Automatically add new people to your Address Book;
- Find and befriend people on social networks;
- Support for multiple QR-code standards
- Winq can read and decode just about any type of QR-code
- Create QR-codes right on your iPhone.
- Extremely intuitive QR-scanning app
- Facebook and Twitter compatibility




I have made my own winq (or barcode) for my social networks and other contact info. That winq can now be scanned by a friend and inserted into their Address Book, or I can simply mail the winq to whomever I please. Quite frankly, it is a snap to share your contact info once your winq is set up. But the icing on the cake is then using one tap to access your friends' networks from their winq barcode which you have saved on your device. So what do you think - do you really need to exchange paper business cards any more? Here's how to use this awesome QR-code, social networking app.

Open the app, and you will be prompted to use the Tutorial to learn the few, easy steps involved in making a winq. You will also see a file cabinet drawer with 3 folders labeled My winqs, Make a winq and Accept a winq. If you don't read the tutorial immediately, you will find it very easily at the bottom of your screen under the Support tab. Tap Make a winq and name it. Tap Add Details (top left) button to insert the fields you want included. You may choose details including Name, E-mail, Address, Phone, Middle Name, Web page, Mobile phone, Work phone, Home fax, Work fax, Organization, Job title, Work address, Home address, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Skype, Google Talk, AIM, MSN and Note. Add or delete fields using the Edit (top right) button.

Once your own winq is created you can easily share it. Have a friend or new acquaintance scan your winq with his phone, or tap Send to mail via in-app e-mail. The winq will be saved in the Photo Library. To Accept a winq, simply go to this Library and select a winq. Tap on the Address Book shown to insert this winq (information) into your Contacts. You can also immediately access your friend's social networks, or data entered into other fields by tapping the icon next to it. Winqs are a real time saver especially because they can read any QR-code available, which has just made your life a whole lot easier!
COOL CONCLUSION: "Use versatile Winq to instantly exchange social contact data via QR-code in a snap!"

Air Media Center



Developer Quote: "Air Media Center's high-performance, retina optimized streaming leaves other standard media streaming apps in the dust when it comes to directly accessing the movies, personal videos, photos and music stored on your Mac or PC."


- COST:   99 cents   - APP STORE STARS: 4-1/2
- Categories: Entertainment, Lifestyle, Native, Storage, Universal, Utilities


Space is always at a premium on your device. When it comes to carrying your entire photo, video or music library in your hands, it's not likely you're going to fit it all in addition to the apps and other stuff already located there. Air Media Center makes it easy to have your media library at hand with seamless play, no glitches, buffering or grainy images. What's different about Air Media Center? Well, it codes your music, video and photos without any help needed from you! No need to sit through aggravating file conversions, especially because the supports so many file formats. Some of the excellent portability features of this media files streaming app are as follows:

• Retina display optimized video and photo streaming
• Specially designed with AirPlay in mind
• Works with all official TV adapters
• Uses the latest SL/Lion+Windows 7 security model
• Authenticate using your Mac or PC user accounts
• Hide files or folders using file system permissions
• Play videos, music, photos of any form or shape
• Provides instant live transcoding if needed
• Folder, iTunes playlist and iPhoto album sharing
• Compatible with universal dock + remote
• Enable access over the Internet using Air Media Server: http://www.airmediacenter.com/downloads/pc/AirMediaServer-1.0.11.msi

Take a look at all these supported files/formats:
AVI, DIVX, XVID, MKV, MP4, M4V, MOV, MPG, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, EyeTV MPEG2, MPEG-4, ASF, WMV, WMA, WAV, MP3, 3GP, OGG, FLAC, MPEG audio, ADTS AAC audio, Real Audio and Video, Macromedia Flash (Only embedded audio is decoded), FLV (Macromedia Flash video files), DVR-MS, WTV, CDR, ISO

To explain a bit better, Air Media Center is composed of two different applications: Air Media Center, the app that you install on your iOS device, and Air Media Server, the server application that you install on your computer. After installing and launching both programs, you can then browse and select media from your computer by using your Air Media Center app.


The amount of space this app could save on your phone is phenomenal. Get the free server application to your Mac or PC from the Air Dynamic website here . This file sharing app makes it so easy to stream your special media collection from your computer to your iPhone or iPad. What I like best about it though is that it lets you index and search photos on your computer. Select alphabetical indexing, indexing by date, or even ascending and descending lists. For my large photo collection, this is ideal. I really don't want to waste room on my phone having photos physically reside there. Just tap to enlarge photos, flip or scroll through thumbnails to view. For other folks, being able to access their huge video files is another space saving wonder. Just tap on a movie to play. Oh, and get this cool music feature - you can use AirPlay from your iOS device to your Mac running AirServer, or to your Apple TV! Lots of goodies indeed on this media streaming app!
COOL CONCLUSION: "Air Media Center provides the ultimate in media center portability when it comes to streaming your favorite photo, video or music files."

Tips & Tricks For Your iOS Device - Spotlight Search

Labels: author's note, #iOS 5, iPad, Lists, Lifestyle, Tips

TODAY'S TIP: SPOTLIGHT SEARCH RESULTS- iOS5
 

Question?

Perhaps you've been looking for a specific Voice Memo, Note or Mail, and so naturally you search for it using Spotlight Search (search function when you swipe to the left from your Home Screen). You will find on your display, loads of results covering all items on your phone, and it will take way too long to scroll through each to find the one you need. How do you speed up this search process?


Solution!

- Your iPhone is so easy to customize in many ways. So if you tend to use your Voice Memos more than anything else, for example, you will want to have those search results shown first when you use Spotlight Search. To arrange the order of results, go to: Settings, General, Spotlight Search where you will see all the categories of items on your phone. These include: Applications, Events, Contacts, Notes, Music, Videos, Audiobooks, Reminders, Voice Memos, Mail, Messages and Podcasts.

You can change the order above simply by tapping and holding the 3-line movable icon to the right of the category, and dragging it to your preferred position. Repeat the same steps to move the order of other functions which you may search the most. Tap and drag Mail to the top of the display or put it in 2nd place, if you wish. In this way, when you actually use your device's Search feature, the items displayed will be in the exact order in which you've customized them on the Settings page!

For instance, you may speak "New Line", "All Caps On", "Semicolon", "Equal Sign", "Open Quote", etc.

Go ahead and tap the microphone and wait till you see the words Connecting, and Start Recording. Begin speaking into the microphone and when finished, tap the mic again. Now touch the arrow icon at the right top of your screen, and you will see option buttons: Email, SMS & iMessage, Facebook, Twitter and Copy. Use any of these buttons to get your message sent where necessary. Each option will open the corresponding application right then and there to save time for you.

That's just how quick and easy it is to use Voice To Apps! I found the voice recognition iPhone app to be pretty much on target with what I actually spoke, and enjoyed staying within the app to open the various communication targets. When I think about it, I realize how much simpler life has been since using my new assistant, Voice to Apps, to take note of important thoughts and tasks.

COOL CONCLUSION: "Voice To Apps makes it a snap to dictate email, notes, documents and social updates with its easy-to-use, expert voice recognition capabilities!"

Maze Magic



Developer Quote: "Are you up for the challenge to safely navigate your wizard through the Maze Magic in high definition?"

 
- COST: 99 cents    - APP STORE STARS: 4-1/2
- Categories: 3D, Entertainment, Games, Native, Puzzle


Making your way through a real maze can be an entertaining and brain teasing activity. I always loved a maze of bushes as a child which was located in a popular theme park. I would run through the carefully carved 7' greenery trying to find my way out. With Maze Magic, you get all of this fun plus a whole lot of obstacles, potions and spells thrown in!

What is especially captivating about this iPhone puzzle maze is the use of 3D graphics throughout the game during 4 original stages with 40 varying levels. Just as in my real life maze, the game levels get more difficult the further you progress. Your mission is to conquer the secret of the maze and also defeat the wizards with their evil spells.
Fortunately, you will find in your travels special helpful potions (or powerups) which will assist you in evading and fighting off any wizardly nonsense that tries to get in your way! Some of the spellbinding features of Maze Magic are as follows:

- High Definition
- STUNNING 3D graphics
- New items added monthly
- Great Power-ups
- Share your experiences on HeyZap
- Take on the Game Center leader board and see how you rate against other keen gamers!
First of all, who doesn't like cute, little wizards? It's important to do a great job of making your way quickly and safely through the maze as your success will guarantee you coins. These unlock levels and allow you buy the powerups which help you survive. The sharp retina graphics and the clock ticking down make for an addicting and thrilling game with a bit of magic thrown in.

COOL CONCLUSION: "Maze Magic is a spellbinding and charming game with twists and turns aplenty!"
--Date/Version: Released 1/14/12 - Version 1.0
--iOS/Age Rating:  This app requires iOS 3.2 or later. Rated 4+.
--Device: Universal: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad.
