Shotlist, a film directing organizer for iPhone and iPad, now availalbe

Shotlist is an iPhone and iPad app designed to help with planning and tracking video shoots. It brings the “Production Stripboard” system used in the industry to the palm of your hand.

  • Add, edit, delete or re-order scenes freely across multiple shooting days – with instant updating of the total number of script pages to be shot each day.
  • Each scene can be clearly marked as “To Do”, “Delay”, “Cut” or “Done” as you shoot, ensuring a vital scene is not missed.
  • View up to 6 storyboard frames per scene. Each frame can be individually marked off as it is completed.
  • Store notes for each scene, hotlinked for instant dial-up of critical phone numbers or access to web addresses (such as location information, or train or tide timetables).
  • Keep everyone informed by emailing them the latest “one-line schedule”, or use Dropbox™ to exchange updated project files with other ShotList users on your team and for backing up your work.
  • Track and schedule scripted drama, commercials, radio production or motion capture shoots.

If you pick this one up, let us know what you think! Check out the screenshots and video demo after the break.

Classics - Arcade Buttons bring physical buttons to the iPhone and iPad [video]

Classics - Arcade Buttons bring physical buttons to the iPhone and iPad [video]

Classics - Arcade Buttons is another accessory aimed at improving the gaming experience on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. The Classics - Arcade Buttons enables you to use real hardware buttons on the screen of your device. We already have a couple of alternatives to replace the on-screen joystick, namely the Fling and Joystick-IT; now we can address the buttons too.

The Classics bring tactile feel to gaming on the iPhone, iPad, Android, and all other capacitive touch screen phones and tablets. The Classics use a special micro-suction cup material that sticks onto the screen of your device and holds on tight, but is easily removed. No adhesive and no unsightly, large suction cups to get in your way of pure pwnage.

The buttons come in packs of three and cost $19.95, available in mid July. Take a look at the short video after the break. We would love to know what you think of these!

TiPb Asks: How do you watch videos on your iPhone and iPad?

How do you watch videos on your iPhone? When the original iPhone launched -- 4 years ago today! -- it came with an iPod app that could play iTunes/H.264 MP4 movies and video podcasts, and a last minute YouTube app addition for online videos. Fast forward to today and iOS 5 is set to break the iPod app in two, Videos and Music just like iPod touch and iPad, YouTube can be played in Safari and embedded web views via Google's web app, and a host of other sites and services now make apps and web apps as well.

There's Netflix and Hulu, ABC and Global, and BBC and MLB, HBO and Comcast, Ustream and Air Video, and a ton of others.

Samsung asks ITC to ban import of iPhone, iPod, iPad

The escalation continues in the dispute between Apple and Samsung, with the Korean conglomerate now asking the International Trade Commission (ITC) to ban the import of iPhones, iPods, and iPads.

If the ITC agrees to investigate such a complaint (which is pretty certain to happen here), a final decision is reached within 16 to 18 months.

The Pope tweets for the first time and uses an iPad to do it [video]

The Pope has used Twitter for the very first time. To write his first tweet, he used an iPad and the official Twitter for iPad app. The tweet was to announce the launch of a new Vatican news portal. He also received a short demonstration of the news portal, again using the iPad. He did not seem to have any problem getting to grips with the iPad touch screen or the user interface; no surprise there!

The video is after the break; let us know what you think!

Top 5 apps "Sherlocked" by iOS 5

Top 5 apps "Sherlocked" by iOS 5

Apple's iOS 5 built-in a lot of new, basic functionality previously filled by 3rd party App Store apps, which effectively "Sherlocked" those apps, rendering them redundant in a post-iOS 5 world. Or did it? There's a world of difference between basic functionality that serves the needs of only the most casual user, and advanced functionality with enough control and features to satisfy a hardcore pro.

What Apple did with iOS 5, as with previous generations of iOS, is take away the entry-level business of several prominent 3rd party apps, but still left them with the premium, higher order market. While it's always dangerous creating an enterprise based on glaring functionality holes Apple will almost certainly fill at some point in the future, there's just as much opportunity building a great product that Apple's entry into the space can benefit.

Here are a 5 apps (and a couple things more) I think could make that case.

Google announces social network Google+, should Facebook worry?

Google announces social network Google+, should Facebook worry?

Google has finally taken the wraps off their long awaited, highly-anticipated (what?) social network, Google+ and it looks like a really clever take on the age-old problem of mapping personal relationships to a virtual space. It will eventually roll out across Google's web properties, but rather than one monolithic service, it's comprised of several parts:

  • Circles, which let you define your relationships and how much you want to share with who and when. These are usually annoying to set up so no one uses them. Google aims to change that.
  • Sparks, which brings you content based on your interests and hopes to strike up conversations
  • Hangouts, which is multi-person video chat. FaceTime is currently only one-to-one...
  • Mobile, which lets you share and upload from your devices (iOS app in the works?)
  • Huddle, a group messaging platform now in competition with the mature BBM on BlackBerry and nascent iMessage on iOS

Google hasn't had much luck with previous projects like [http://www.imore.com/tag/wave/) and Buzz, but this feels both more ambitious and far better considered. Whether it will be enough to put a dent in Facebook's 750 million member and growing dominance of the social space remains to be seen. (See how I snuck them into the post? I thought you did.)

One thing is clear, with Apple integrating Twitter into iOS and introducing Game Center, Ping (no snickering), and replacing MobileMe with iCloud, they're getting more serious (if not yet more adapt) at Social. And Google's just re-entered, once again, that game in a big way. Are you going to switch?

Videos after the break.
