QuickOffice HD for iPad- app review

This week I am looking at QuickOffice HD for iPad. In my ongoing pursuit of productivity apps, I am very pleased with what is coming out of the development community for iPad. Does QuickOffice HD raise the bar again? Let's dive right in and take a look.

Getting documents into QuickOffice HD is a relative snap. First you have the familiar ability to sync from iTunes. Just add your documents and when you sync, they appear in the app. However, the more useful feature is the ability to sync to the cloud. QuickOffice supports the basic usual suspects: MobileMe iDisk- both public and private, Google Docs, Dropbox and Box.net. You enter in your login credentials and QuickOffice will sync the folders to your iPad, but not the content. The folder content will give a preview but only load when you access the document. Once accessed, it stored locally. You can also open and save documents from email and that is always a bonus.

Did you get an iPhone 4?

http://www.engadget.com/2010/06/23/iphone-4-and-iphone-3g-screens-go-head-to-head-under-the-microsc/

Apple has finally released iPhone 4 -- at least in the first wave of countries -- and many of you pre-ordered for delivery or reserved and stood in line just to get yours. I'm curious as to how many?

Anyone not get an iPhone 4? If not, was it because you couldn't or you chose not to?

Vote in the poll up top and let us know which iPhone 4 you got, or why you didn't get an iPhone 4, in the comments below.

UPDATED: Steve Jobs: During FaceTime, mute is the new hold

UPDATED: Steve Jobs: During FaceTime, mute is the new hold

How do you place a call on hold when you're both on iPhone 4 and Wi-Fi, and the FaceTime button has replaced the Hold button, but you're not using FaceTime?

Jonathan Cowperthwait emailed Apple's CEO to find out:

During many voice calls on my new iPhone 4, the "hold" icon has been replaced with a FaceTime icon, even when I'm not talking to a fellow iPhone 4 user. During such calls, how do I put someone on hold? Yes, there's still a mute button, but these functions are discrete (which is why iOS ≤ 3 had both buttons...).

Official "I survived iPhone 4 release day" comment thread

Official "I survived iPhone 4 release day" comment thread

Kachow. We did it TiPb nation. The great iPhone 4 release day of 2010 in is in the books. And what a release day it was -- lineups started the night before and extended around (and around) the block. No white iPhones were available, of course, and if you didn't have a reservation odds of even scoring a black one diminished rapidly as the day wore on.

iPhone 4 Jailbreak - when will it come and does it still matter?

iPhone 4 Jailbreak - when will it come and does it still matter?

With iOS 4 and iPhone 4 Apple has again closed the functionality gap, but is it enough to retire Jailbreak once and for all?

iPhone 4 and iOS4 brings with it many welcome additions that some users have obtained via jailbreak for years now. While iOS 4 Jailbreak is no possible for some older devices, it will likely be a while before it's possible on iPhone 4. Geohot has claimed he has an exploit and no doubt the iPhone Dev Team is also hard at work. For most of us, we'll just have to wait patiently for them to announced something.

But the question on some people's minds is, "so I still have a need to jailbreak?" Well, to be quite honest - it's really going to be unique to each user. For myself, I know I'll continue to jailbreak until Apple gives me the complete functionality iPhone users should natively have.

Apple has always been known to have a streamline interface and a clean UI. But to be honest, that isn't what "all" users want. Some want to customize and tweak. I'm one of them. Hit the jump to see some of my own opinions on why I'll most likely still continue to jailbreak.

iPhone 4 features: FaceTime hands-on

iPhone 4 features: FaceTime hands-on

Leanna and Chad go hands-on -- and faces on! -- with iPhone 4 FaceTime video calling

One of the big game-changers of the iPhone 4 is FaceTime, Apple's version of video-calling. Chad and I were very excited to try it out and recorded our experience.

A few things first. You can initiate a FaceTime call either from the person's Contact entry, or while on a phone call. It's incredibly simple and easy to do -- except for one glaring omission Dieter and Marcus already noted...

You can't tell when the person you want to video call is available (on their iPhone 4 on Wi-Fi) so you can FaceTime them. If you're on a call chances are they'll tell you whether they're ready or not, but if you try it without asking, or from the Contact entry, it will time-out if it can't connect.

We should also point out that you can enable and disable FaceTime in the Settings. This is great for privacy but if it's off and you don't know it's off, it can be frustrating. Needless to say, if you want to use FaceTime, make sure it's enabled.

On with the video hands-on, after the break.

The iPhone 4 was officially launched today and after picking mine up, I was eager to test out the new cameras. The rear camera is 5 megapixels and features 5x digital zoom and 16:9, 720p HD video recording. It also has a built-in LED flash that can be used for photos or video. The front-facing camera is VGA quality and can be used for both 1.4 megapixel stills and 360p video as well.

So how do the iPhone 4 cameras perform? Find out after the break!
