iPad in Business -- Doctors Want it, Omni Group Gets it

While much of iPad presentation thus far has been focused on content consumption, Apple's iWork demo and the ability to run iPhone productivity apps -- and eventually iPad-specific apps -- as well as 1024x768 web apps means it's got a fighting chance in business, especially key verticals like medicine, and with developers like Omni Group.

Apple: No Location-based Ads for Non Location-based Apps -- Controversy de Jour?

Apple's iPhone Developer News feed has posted a note saying developers should enhance their App Store apps with Core Location... but not if they just want to use it to serve up location-based ads. Of course, this has set off yet another round of conspiracy theories and Apple accusations. Here's what Apple had to say:

The Core Location framework allows you to build applications which know where your users are and can deliver information based on their location, such as local weather, nearby restaurants, ATMs, and other location-based information.

iPhone Skype App Going 3G: "Real Soon"

For those of you holding your breath for Skype to work over AT&T's 3G network, you will soon be able to relax as Skype has told TiPb it's only a matter of time. From their blog:

<

blockquote>You may have seen other apps offering calls over 3G, but we’re holding ours back for a little bit longer. Why? So that we can give you the very best audio quality we can. When our 3G-capable Skype for iPhone app is released, it’ll let you make calls in wideband audio, giving you greater clarity and fidelity – because that’s what you expect from Skype.

We've been waiting since way back in November, when AT&T decided to allow VoIP over their 3G network, and Apple's iPhone 3.2 SDK for iPad has now removed the last hurdle.

It's no surprise we heard earlier that AT&T has been working with Apple to improve their network before the release of the highly anticipated Apple iPad. Perfect timing don't you think?

More from Skype via video, after the break!

Quick App: Cookmate Recipe Finder for iPhone

Cookmate made by Tapmates [$1.99 - iTunes Link] for iPhone and iPod touch lets you tell it what you already have in your pantry and then finds you a recipe to use it.

The graphics are so beautifully rendered and the interface so user-friendly it makes choosing what to cook for dinner much less stressful. In fact, it's so easy that I even allow my 4 year old to help out.

Cookmate includes a grocery list that you can use to add and later check off any ingredient or items you may be missing.

There is also a user-based rating system for each recipe. On the downside, that means that if no one likes the high-rated meal you prepared, it is probably not the recipe but your cooking. ;)

Video after the break. If you try it, let us know what you think!

Major Textbook Publishers Sign with ScrollMotion to get on iPad

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that publishers, McGraw-Hill Cos, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt K-12, Pearson Education, and Kaplan Inc., have signed with ScrollMotion to adapt their textbooks for Apple's new iPad tablet.

Though Apple didn't outline its strategy to target the educational sector with its iPad last week, people familiar with Apple's thinking have said that the iPad's use in schools was one of the focal points of discussions in developing the product. In its exploration of electronic book technology, it thought particularly about how it could re-invent textbooks, these people said. Apple declined to comment on the role of textbooks on the iPad. Apple has an edge in the educational sector becauseits Macintosh computers have always enjoyed a strong following in the academic sphere, and it already offers educational audio and video content through its iTunes U service.
