What can be more tiresome than trying to figure out how many teaspoons are in an ounce or yards in a mile? Having an all purpose conversion tool can be a boon to anyone whether a student, business person or home-maker. Here's where Convex can help to make your life a tad easier with its quick and easy answer to your measurement question! This is a cleverly created measurement conversion iPhone and iPad app that intuitively gives you the results you need without your having to worry about providing details.

Convex provides results for over 950 units in 20 categories. Some of the categories include: Length, Time, Illuminance, Fuel, Force, Density, Volumentric Flow, Area, Currency and much more! That's a lot of conversions with cool animations and sounds to illustrate each conversion! Select the preferred category, the unit, and then type in the measurement amount. Immediately the conversion will be displayed in large numbers on top of your display. Tap the swap icon to reverse units if you'd like. Use the slider bar on the sides of the diagram to move the measurement up or down without even typing!

Here's where Convex stands out in the crowd - it contains realistic sounds and animations that make your conversions come to life. In discovering how many liters are contained in 1 gallon, the beaker filled with liquid and made the sounds of water pouring in. The radioactivity module displayed flames and produced the sounds of crackling fire. I consider this very imaginative, unique and plain fun when there is a boring task at hand!
In addition to being helpful, Convex is a great educational tool, and one that kids will enjoy using while doing their homework. Sleek, shiny and incredibly helpful Convex is a must-have utility for your iOS device.

COOL CONCLUSION: "Convert over 950 measurements units effortlessly with the sleek, stylish, smart Convex utilities app."

Unfriended



Developer Quote: "Unfriended will show you exactly who removed you as a friend and who deactivated their account. "



- COST: Free     - APP STORE STARS: 4-1/2
- Categories: Communications, Lifestyle, Native, Social Networking

How large is your Facebook account? If it's over 50 people, it's too hard to keep track of all those status updates or activities of friends. If it's up to 500 folks, heck OJ Simpson could be on there, and you wouldn't even know it! I keep my account limited purposely so I can truly interact with my friends, and not just maintain a mass of people whom I may have met once in the past. Still, I'm never quite aware if anyone has unfriended me or deactivated their own account. Once or twice I've seen the account decrease by two, and wondered who the heck decided to wander off!

It's pretty easy with Unfriended to see exactly what's what with your Facebook account. It's the simplest app to use and very small in space as apps go. Basically you open the app and see tabs for History and Unfriended, along with an Edit button on top of your display. There is a refresh button to the bottom left of your screen. Tap that and it will sift through your Facebook friends and let you know on the spot if any changes have occurred. It's simple-no bells or whistles, just a clear answer. If all your friends are still there, you will see a message, "There are no new changes in your friends list to display." 



Fortunately, today all was well with my Facebook account, so I don't have an alternate answer to that one! One caveat here: Unfriended will only display results for who deactivated or removed you as a friend AFTER the time you installed this app. Therefore, after installing, you may wish to wait a day or two to check out the number of your friends on Facebook. And, remember, it doesn't really matter who unfriended you! You are an awesome person, and that other person is losing out on great interaction with you if he or she decided to retract a friendship!

COOL CONCLUSION: "Unfriended makes it simple to quickly view if anyone has unfriended you or deactivated his or her Facebook account."

Anyone currently enjoying a vacation, compiling memoirs of a get-together, writing a daily journal or otherwise engaged in a customized writing activity? All the above and many other note-taking methods have become a cinch using iPad which has increased productivity for both professionals and individuals. NoteLedge® for iPad caught my attention and has become part of my daily writing habit due to its many personalized methods of creating and containing my notes, memos and e-cards using built-in templates. What you do with these 3 writing options is totally up to your imagination and real life activities!
The customization with using multi-media, different writing tools and colors, cropping and moving all items on a page exactly where you want them is amazingly useful and oh so intuitive!

As you work, use the undo and redo buttons at top of the screen to fine-tune your thoughts. Of course, the final highlight of this creative app is sharing with whomever you want via multiple methods including DropBox, iDisk, GoogleDocs (all available under the cloud icon), Email Page, Note, Note With PDF, Share to Facebook, and of course save to your photo album.

Developer Quote: "OrganiDoc HD provides you a wonderful way to browse docs, pics, videos in a uniquely different user interface."

 
- COST: $4.99    - APP STORE STARS: 5
- Categories: Communications, iPad, Lifestyle, Native, Organization, Photos, Productivity, Storage, Videos
Life can get so complicated with juggling and sharing personal and business tasks, communications and media. If you are constantly on the go, this can make things even more stressful with needing files you suddenly discovered are not in your possession! That's why it's super important nowadays to have all your important information at hand. I found a really superb answer to this dilemma - OrganiDoc HD. This app keeps you completely organized and ready to produce media, docs or what-have-you at a minute's notice!


With this excellent iOS app, you will be able to manage all your special photos, videos and documents from your computer, and even have them password protected, in case a friend or relative is using your iPad. (Password protection is worth a million to me as I really don't like having my photos and email exposed to others). Still, if that's not enough, OrganiDoc HD utilizes Dropbox, Google Docs, Mobileme, along with other sites, to easily and quickly access and import your materials from all "safe-houses" to a single place for your review.
Some of the excellent features of this storage and file management iPad app are as follows:

▪ Simply transfer docs, pics and videos from your PC through iTunes enabling browsing and management anytime, anywhere.
▪ Revolutionary way to present your files in their respective presentation and interfaces, allowing more efficient file management.
▪ Manage your docs, pics and videos in both public and protected mode.
▪ Easily save your attachments within email to OrganiDoc HD.
▪ Use free Dropbox, Google Docs or other cloud disk services for backup remotely and download them on demand to your iPad.
▪ Observe sharing status of your Google docs or Dropbox on iPad anytime.
▪ Compression files such as ZIP or RAR can be extracted in OrganiDoc HD. Password protected ZIP or RAR are also supported. Files and folders can be compressed to a ZIP file.
▪ Use OrganiDoc HD as your one stop file management app for emailing or dispatching file to other apps for further editing.
▪ Use Wifi to transfer file from PC to iPad when there is no access to USB cable.
▪ Support Air print features to print out files in iPad easily.
▪ Support TV out features. Users can easily connect iPad to TV or projectors to do presentation.
▪ Pics are saved with complete information such as GPS, focus, resolution and so on.
▪ Converting wmv, flv, f4v, rm, rmvb, avi, mpg, asf, mkv, 3gp video files to iPad playable mp4 or audio-only mp3 files. ▪ During the conversion, you can still play other video files.

The detailed video below provided by CrazyMikesApps will show you just how useful and invaluable you will find OrganiDoc HD.



Below are the many
file formats you can enjoy on your iPad:

a. MS Office (doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, pps, ppsx…)
b. iWorks '09, '08, '06 files (key, numbers, pages, key.zip, numbers.zip, pages.zip)
c. PDF file (pdf)
d. Text files (txt, rtf, rtfd)
e. Web files (htm, html, xml, svg), Safari Web Archives (webarchive).
f. Compressed files (zip, rar)
g. Image files (jpg, tif, png, gif, bmp, BMPf, ico, cur, xbm)
h. Video files (mp4, mov, m4v…), Audio files (aac, mp3, m4a…)

When you open OrganiDoc HD, tap My iPad, My Doc to find a Quick Start Guide that will instruct you on how to transfer files of all types between your computer and iPad. Now you can begin to make your files easily accessible to you at all times. Tap Cloud Storage in the left of your display to view the many storage facilities where you may currently have docs, videos or photos. These site include GoogleDocs, Dropbox, MobileMe iDisk, Public iDisk, WebDAV Server, Box.net and Soonr. Enter your account information in each and you're all set to go with docs at the ready! To set a Passcode on a file, just tap the Protected File tab. The same method applies to iTunes File Sharing. On the top of your screen, you will see tabs for Doc, Photo, Media. This is where your files will appear when added to OrganiDoc HD.

I transferred several special photos from my computer using iTunes and they appeared within a couple minutes. I tested importing documents as well as videos, and everything functioned smoothly as I expected. Remember, you can also transfer files from your iPad back to iTunes on your computer or to any of the storage facilities mentioned. The neat thing I noticed when viewing my imported photos is that I could password protect each, as well as see complete file format information on the photo itself. Another intuitive feature is being able to see a preview of your file in the left column of your screen. Tap on the file name to view it in entirety. You are able to Rename, Share, Move, Zip, etc. your files when you tap the Edit button on the top of your display.
I've mentioned several favorite features that I found, but here's one of the neatest! Use the List or Swipe icon buttons at the end of the display to view your materials. Swipe is done via carousel method. The bottom line here is that after testing and using OrganiDoc HD for the day, I found it to be absolutely invaluable and totally productive. I found no glitches or problems that befuddled me. The app is cleverly constructed, straightforward, extremely useful and a must-have for all iPad users!

COOL CONCLUSION: "OrganiDoc HD is a sleek and excellent productivity tool allowing file management, storage and organization with great care put into each solid feature!"

Pinterest



Developer Quote: "Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard which lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find in your life."

- COST: Free     - APP STORE STARS: 4-1/2
- Categories: Entertainment, Lifestyle, Native, Photos, Social Networking
 

If you're planning an event, or engaging in some task in which you welcome the creative ideas of friends and family, you need a place to hold this wealth of information. Wouldn't it be easy to have everything in one place so you could take a look at all this helpful input? How about placing it all on a type of photo board? In fact, I've noticed that on TV shows, the detectives use a whiteboard to illustrate their thoughts on solving a crime. On this one board they will list all the tips, pics and ideas they may have. By using one place in which to host all their crime solving ideas, they are able to think more clearly. Well, Pinterest is a place where you can "pin" all your interests in one location, similar to the ideas above. You can also have a look at boards made by other people if you'd like to get some ideas in a variety of categories, or just to enjoy some creative genius. Some of the great uses of this social networking iPhone and iPad app are as follows:

• Browse pins from people and pinboards you follow.
• Repin, like and comment on your favorite pins.
• Pin with your camera!
How are some of the ways you can utilize Pinterest? Well, I thought about this for a while and can see some excellent uses for it. You can use a Pinterest board to decorate a house, plan an office party, baby shower, family vacation and so much more. Paste your images in your area of interest on your wall, and write your thoughts under that graphic. So, if you're planning a party, invite friends to give you their recipes, pics, games, themes or anything at all to do with the event. You can post this info on your board, or have your friends do it themselves. If your kids are part of a soccer or basketball team, post team pics, scores, game news or anything else at all. Can you see now how useful a social networking tool Pinterest can be? So go ahead and get started fleshing out all your areas of interest on walls that reflect your thoughts! It's a great way to stay in touch with friends!

COOL CONCLUSION: "Pinterest is a unique social networking tool that allows you to post (pin) and share with friends your pics, ideas, plans and thoughts on a specially designated wall!"

Have you you ever wondered how your brother's face would look on your uncle's head? Or maybe even how your sister's face would look on her grandmother's head? There's always tons of amusing possibilities available when you can play around with photo effects. Face Fun provides you with just that type of amusement, and the creativity is endless. You can use this app when out at parties or clubs with friends, at the ballpark with kids, or just at home with your photo collection and feeling bored! Some of the editing fun of this photo effects app are as follows:

• Easy to use: snap/import -> fine tune -> share
• Universal app – buy once and use on all your iOS devices (iPhone/iPod/iPad)
• Sharing via Facebook, Twitter and email
• Supports tagging of people in the photos
• Built-in photo editing tools
All you have to do is take a pic or grab one from your photo album, then let Face Fun do all the work! This app will sense, scan and locate the faces with which you want to work. Polish up the finished result a bit, and there you have it! You've exchanged the heads of two of your favorite (or not) people! There are a few editing features in Face Fun which let you play around with your images before you share them. You can actually perform minor adjustments to size, position and rotation of the faces.
