iDygest for iPhone - app review

iDygest is just what it sounds like -- an app that will congregate all feeds Apple into one sleek timeline for you to browse through.  I know I have quite a few iRelated websites that I browse through everyday, I've even got an Apple group in Google Reader that syncs with my RSS app on my phone.  But lately I've found myself opening up iDygest if I just want to see a quick highlight of what's been going on the world of all things Apple.

PEOPLE Magazine for iPad available, free for print subscribers

PEOPLE magazine is now available for iPad. The application is free to download, but each issue is a $3.99 in-app purchase. However, if you are a subscriber to the print version of PEOPLE, you get the iPad version for free! Unfortunately, there is not a subscription model in place with the app. So subscribing to strictly the iPad version is not an option.

In addition to the content of the print version of PEOPLE, the iPad version offers even more:

Clearcam for iPhone - app review

Clearcam for iPhone is an app that compliments the already existing camera app. Instead of tapping camera, you take your pictures through Clearcam. I found myself using this app when I wanted clearer pictures or when I was in an area that pictures came out either blurry or dark. The concept is quite simple, it'll take several shots of the same thing and either overlays the shots or chooses the best one (depending on what setting you choose).  The app claims to up quality of the camera from 5MP images to around 11MP images.

Google stacks Gmail for iPad

Google continues to rapidly reincarnate their iPad Gmail web app, this time introducing Apple Mail-style stacks into the mix. Back when the iPad optimized version of Gmail was launched, Google emphasized their new code base would allow for just this kind of fast feature development, and now hot on the heels of the new compose screen, stacks will allow for easier grouping and organizing of mail. They also gave Google's team a chance to play with CSS transitions to try and get closer in look and feel to native apps.

Facebook 3.2 brings Places to iPhone

Facebook's iPhone app has been updated to version 3.2 and, among other things, brings support for the new Places service that lets you see where your friends are and what location-based social activities they're up to. (At least in the US, when I tried it it said it wasn't yet available in my region.)

What else is new?
