Fantastical for iPhone gets even smarter and faster

Fantastical, the fantastically functional calendar app by Flexibits, has just been updated to version 1.1. I've been beta testing it for a while, and as clichéd as it sounds, it really does make the already great app even better.

Path adds messaging, stickers for messaging, and a shop to, um, buy stickers for messaging

Path, the eye-candy filled semi-private social network app for iPhone and iPad, has updated to version 3.0. New features center around messaging, which allows you to communicate directly with a specific friend, rather than posting things for all of them to see. They've also added stickers, or little graphics you can send via messaging, and a store to buy stickers.

Facebook Messenger updated with new naming, gesture, and search features

The dedicated Facebook Messenger app for iPhone has been updated to version 2.3. New and improved features include the ability to name a group from the top of a conversation, the ability to get to group conversation with left swipe from the sidebar, and the ability to search for group conversations by name or friend.

Charmingly, Facebook also seems to have forgotten to swap out their rather handsome looking, blueprint inspired beta icon. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Skating to where the customers are going to be

"Skating to where the puck is going to be" is an old Wayne Gretzky saying that Steve Jobs once quoted, and so it gets rehashed a lot when discussing Apple's strategy for moving into new markets. Typically that's with hardware like iPhone, iPad, or potential hardware like the rumored iWatch, or with features like iTunes, AirPlay or Passbook. It's also an apt way to describe Apple's commercial strategy.

Share photos with friends, collaborate on albums, and more with Albumatic

Albumatic for iPhone is somewhat similar to photo sharing services like Instagram but focuses more on creating albums and sharing them with the people you already know, not just anyone. It's somewhat simliar to Apple's own Photo Stream service but allows your friends to add to your albums, not just view them. Albumatic may be a great alternative for those who want to collaborate on albums instead of just sharing and viewing.

New Iron Man 3 trailer is high on tech, low on laughs

The last Iron Man 3 trailer looked disturbingly like a Dark Knight Rises rehash and while the new one is slightly more fun, it still doesn't show much of the humor of the first two films. Given how belabored and off-key Dark Knight Rises was, I'm nervous.

Still, it's Old Shell Head looking even more Golden Avenger than usual, with War Machine getting the Iron Patriot paint on, and the often superb Ben Kingsley crammed into the many rings of the Mandarin, so while a lot could go wrong, there's still every chance the mighty Marvel movie machine gets this right. Or right enough that, come repulsor and uni-beam time, I won't care.

Iron Man 3 lands in theaters on April 25 or May 3, depending on where you live. In the meantime, there's tons of great content to load up on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Here are some of my favorites.
