In the age of iCloud, does Apple need to maintain a monstrous iTunes?

Breaking up iTunes is Peter Cohen's number one want for OS X 10.9. He's probably not alone on that front, I myself went as far as saying I'd love to see the Podcasts app broken away from iTunes and released as a stand alone as on iOS. On their iOS devices, Apple has made the iTunes experience so much better than on the desktop, and it's been this way for a long time. And, with iCloud at their disposal, Apple could easily strip apart the "bloated, unwieldy mess" that is the current iTunes desktop experience.

Dispatch for iPhone review: If you're buried in emails, you need this app now!

For those of us that have lots of emails to keep up on everyday, the default iPhone mail app can be somewhat lacking. There are other options in the App Store but it always seems to be give and take. Dispatch aims to close a good majority of that gap by providing functionality that makes you more productive. With support for snippets, multiple account types, extensive share sheets, and more, Dispatch may just give apps like Mailbox a run for its money.

Vesper for iPhone review: Collect your thoughts with one part notes app, one part lists app, shaken, not stirred

Vesper -- Brent Simmons, Dave Wiskus, and John Gruber's Vesper -- is part list-maker and part note-taker, and so strongly opinionated about how it balances both that you'll fall instantly in love... or want to kill it on sight. This isn't your UIKit convention, your lowest common denominator, or any other concession to the mass-market. Everything about Vesper, every choice about every feature, liberates only through constraint. Because it allows for just a very small set of very deliberate actions, Vesper frees you from the cognitive overhead of managing the management app, and forces you to simply fulfill its purpose -- collecting your thoughts.
