Get a personalized TV guide with Peel for iPhone

Peel - Personal TV Show Guide is an iPhone app that generates a personal TV guide based on what shows you like.

As you are browsing through TV shows on Peel, pick a handful that you like or dislike and let Peel know about them. Within a couple of days, Peel will start pleasantly surprising you by suggesting TV shows that you will love. We call it magic!

  • Have fun browsing through crisp thumbnails of TV Shows
  • Touch one of the thumbnails and you will see what channel that show is on as well as a brief description of the episode that is playing
  • Swipe across to browse TV shows, Movies and Sports by genres
  • Mark the shows you like as favorites and cut the ones you don’t like. Your top picks will get precise as you interact more with the app.
  • Share what you're watching on Facebook and Twitter in one easy step
  • Use instant search to see what channel a specific show or game is on
  • See up to a week ahead of shows right on iPhone or iPod touch. No need of interrupting what you are currently watching by bringing up the onscreen guide.
  • Set alarms so you never miss an upcoming show

I've been desperately wanting to watch some new shows, so I look forward to seeing what Peel recommends for me. Has Peel given you any good recommendations?

Peel is available for free on the iPhone. Screenshots after the break.

Bluetooth keyboard support hidden in iOS 5 for Apple TV

9to5 Mac has uncovered an interesting feature of iOS 5 beta 3 for the Apple TV. The previously unused Bluetooth chip appears to have been activated. It looks like Bluetooth support is aimed at integrating a keyboard into your setup, rather than anything more exciting. The new Bluetooth feature can be found in the normal settings menu, enabling you to pair a keyboard with the usual passcode setup process.

Convert documents into PDFs with PDF Converter for iPad

Readdle has released their new iPad app, PDF Converter.

PDF Converter lets you transform any file you have on the iPad into a PDF document whenever you need it. Everything from a multi-million contract to a web page you want to read later can be saved as a PDF in several taps.

Make PDFs from:

  • Email Attachments
  • iWork and MS Office documents
  • Web pages
  • Files from other applications
  • Clipboard content
  • Photos
  • Documents on Dropbox and MobileMe iDisk
  • Contacts

I keep my PDFs organized in iBooks, and PDF Converter is the perfect companion. There are many times I come across something on the web that I want to save for future reference, like a tutorial, but I also hate cluttering up my bookmarks. Now, I convert it into a PDF, send to iBook, and organize in there - simple, yet effective.

PDF Converter is available for $6.99. Screenshots after the break.

Smoody for iPhone and iPad updated and free for today only!

Federico Kalayjian's iPhone and iPad apps Smoody and Smoody HD have been updated with a new chapter "Underwater" and include 20 new levels. There are also new in-app purchases for new characters and additional cuts.

The Smoodies are scattered throughout the universe and are searching for one another to begin a new era. Use your wit and creativity to help them reunite while travelling through space.

  • Just tap, slide and release to assist your Smoody in reaching the “black hole” using insanely realistic physics and interactive stage elements that you can actually destroy!
  • Work your way through 5 chapters spanning 100 insanely addicting levels using teleporters, ropes, magnets and much more! Easy to use gameplay, challenging levels and lovable characters make Smoody impossible to put down.
  • Think carefully and plan wisely to obtain the coveted 3 stars for each level. The faster and more precisely you can slice and dice your way through each level will earn you even more points! *Earn achievements and battle with friends and other players around the world for top score.
  • Share your scores and achievements with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

Smoody is such a fun little puzzle game! It has a similar feel to one of my favorite games, Cut the Rope. It has a simple premise but can be surprisingly challenging. If you're into these types of games, Smoody won't disappoint!

Smoody and Smoody HD are available for free today only! They are normally priced at $0.99 and $2.99, respectively. Screenshots and video after the break.
