Quick App: BugMe! for iPhone

One of my favorite apps from my days using Palm OS was BugMe! Back in the day, it offered functionality that the Palm OS did not have in its Memo/Notes applications. You can pick up BugMe in the app store for a deal [$0.99 - iTunes Link]. Let's take a look at what BugMe! For iPhone has to offer.

BugMe! is setup to have a cork board-like interface where you can stick your notes and rearrange them in any order you like.  From the launch screen you can view and rearrange your notes as you want by tapping and holding. You can tap the "New Note" button to create a new note. Once created, you have several options available to you:

  • Ink or eraser
  • Change ink thickness
  • Change note color and add an image to the note
  • Share note (email, Twitter, Home Screen, Photo Album)
  • Alarm

One of the innovative features with this release is the ability to take a note and send it to your home screen. Typically, this is done via the "+" at the bottom of a webpage. How does BugMe! do it? If you decided to share your note  to the home screen, the app sends the image to the web on BugMe!'s servers. This then allows you to save the note to your home screen. Once saved, it will take you to the web interface, it does not take you back to the BugMe! app; disappointing.

Another nice feature is the ability to set custom alarms with push notifications. This can come in really handy if you jot down a quick note and need to be reminded later.

I  like this 1.x release of BugMe!. It is simple and fun, but lacks some features such as resizable notes (ya just can't fit in a lot of the release given, even with a smaller ink size) and options to not size-to-fit images you place on a note. Other than that, if you are looking for a simple ink note app for your iPhone, BugMe! fits the bill! Lots of pictures after the break!

Meebo IM for iPhone and iPod touch

It's been a long time coming, but instant messaging client, Meebo, [iTunes Link - Free] has finally made it into the App Store. The last time TiPb mentioned Meebo was back in 2008 when Chad reviewed their web app. Since then, several other IM apps have become popular. What does Meembo have to offer?

  • Push notifications even when the app is closed
  • Stay connected as you move from Edge to 3G to WiFi
  • Meebo's proven multi-network access protocols
  • Automatically reconnect if you lose coverage so you don't miss a message
  • Swipe to switch between multiple conversations
  • Rotate for landscape mode and a wider keyboard.
  • Message preview from the Chats List
  • Full Meebo emoticon support
  • Searchable Chat History
  • Sort chats by most recent or full view
  • Support for all the major IM networks, and many more

We've been using Meebo for about a week now and it is a very good effort for a 1.0 release. You can really tell the app was optimized for speed, simplicity, and performance as claimed. While the UI could use a little work, it does have all of the bells and whistles imaginable to compete with with the current crop of IM client top contenders.

The 2010 Winter Olympics officially began yesterday and if you want to keep up with your country to see how well they are performing, the NBC Olympics Mobile app [iTunes Link - Free] for iPhone and iPod touch is a great companion piece that offers a ton of great features.

  • News, results and medal counts are all updated live.
  • Video on-demand: Those of you in the U.S. can watch NBC Olympics video clips and highlights. Sorry Canada!
  • Favorites: Save athletes, sports and nations as favorites
  • Push Notifications: Have results for your favorite sports pushed directly to your iPhone.
  • TV Coverage Schedule: View NBC's TV and online coverage schedule and set program reminders.
  • Athlete Bios and Sports Information: You can read up on all of the sports rules and get the full details about nations and teams.
  • Social networking: Share Olympic Games content with your friends directly on your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts.

Why Canadian users would be omitted from viewing video is beyond us, especially since they are hosting all of the events. Surely some sort of deal could have been made for those of you in Canada? Now if you throw that major fail aside, you have a great app to give you your daily dose of the 2010 Winter Olympics.
