Do you use Google Docs?
I do, and it’s a great way to share documents and have it anywhere in the cloud, at any time, and that’s exactly the purpose of iDocs Pro for Google Docs™ and Google Drive™ [HD], by ICSOFT.
Within this app you will find every required tool to review, fix and create documents directly to the cloud.
It has a great editing interface, and it works just as if you were on your home PC.
If you hurry up, you’ll get the iPhone version for free today, so I wouldn’t think too much about it.
What about a nice, simple and clean FTP client? Good idea, right?
FTP Sprite by ujweng does the job very well and you can install it free (for a limited time)
This Universal app feels just right on any device and there are no tricks. Configure it with the basic information and off you go.
You can configure it with several hosts and then one-click them to connect to each one of them.
Deleting a remote file is as easy as sliding your finger over it and tapping “Delete”.
Also, as in every FTP client, you are able to Upload/Download files from and to your device. Those files become then accessible via iTunes.
This is an application that I use quite often, and if you are used to connecting to FTP servers, you should install it right away.
This app is free for a limited time, so don’t overthink it.
Now that the new iPad is out there, it is likely that we have lots of iOS newbies, eager to know which apps to install first.
This app is a great guide to start using your device, separated in different categories to help you sorting your stuff out.
This could be used even if you’re an experienced user. There is always that sneaky app that you don’t know about and makes all the difference.
As it’s free, I suggest you test it. If you don’t like it, just delete the darned thing. No harm done.
There is also an iPhone version of the app, but it’s not free.
I’m puzzled. Doesn’t “WinZip” mean something like “Windows Zip”? If so, why would someone release a WinZip for iOS? Coherence issues.
With this useful app, you are able to browse and open zip files, view all files inside and even visualize images and other file types.
It will also work for encrypted files (of course you will need the password).
This app is particularly useful for mail attachments, that are very frequently in the zip format.
You can visualize the following formats from within the ZIP file:
.txt, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pptx, .rtf, .pdf, .key, .numbers, .pages, .htm, .htm, .jsp, .bmp, .jpg, .jpeg, .tif, .tiff, .png, .gif
This is a great productivity tool, and it’s Universal and free.
If you are an IT technician or just need to access your home/work PC at any time, maybe you already have heard of the LogMeIn service, and perhaps you even use it by now.
In a nutshell, LogMeIn allows a fella to access his computers from anywhere, provided he has the access passwords.
The operation is pretty straight forward. You access the LogMeIn website, enter you login and password, and there you go, a list of available hosts will be presented to you. Select the one you want to control and have fun.
So now, with the app LogMeIn by LogMeIn Inc you can do that very same thing using your iOS device, for free.
The app is universal and will work particularly well on iPads.
This app is suited for those who need to have constant access to their stuff back at home (or at work).
It works very nice as well for those who need remote support, or need to help someone who has less IT know-how.
How many times did you have to drive to your parents house to configure the printer?
LogMeIn gets rid of that for you. Just connect to their computer directly and get it done.
Also, you can upgrade in-app to LogMeIn Pro, to get additional features:
• HD video and sound streaming for seamless remote control from any device or Pro enabled computer (available for Windows, Mac coming soon)
• My Cloud Bank integration that links your LogMeIn app with popular cloud services
• File Manager for transferring files and folders between computers and saving them to your device
• Remote printing to any AirPrint compatible printer
• Photo App Management for accessing and transferring photos from/to your iPad or iPhone photo library
This upgrade costs $39.99 for a year.
Alternatively, you could buy Ignition, the “lifetime Pro” version of LogMeIn. It has all features (standard + pro) forever, but it will cost you.
Right now Ignition goes for $99.99, so make sure you really need it.
Now here’s a cool useful app for your device.
iDownloader Plus – Universal Downloader and Download Manager by GameStruct is not only an app with a long-as-hell name, but it is also something you could need at anytime.
We all know that the iOS system is not known by its ability to download files, or be used as a file server, but as people usually say, there’s an app for that!
The problem is that the best apps are, of course, paid.
Not today. iDownloader Plus is currently free (for a limited time) and it’s unlocked. No ads, no banners, full featured.
And even more than a downloader, it also handles a lot of formats, allowing you to open, the most diverse file types.

This app will work on iPhones/iPods and iPads, so you really shouldn’t avoid this one.

Once again, this app is free for a limited time, so don’t waste any more of it and install this awesome app.
Well, this might be interesting.
It seems AppAnnex may have something cool in the oven for the near January 19th. I’m talking about Tap Alarm Clock, an app that will make it easy for you to set up an alarm on your iPhone/iPod or iPad.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
Next Thursday, January 19, our company is planning to release a new app iPhone/iPad compatible product called the Tap Alarm Clock.
We worked really hard to make this app to stand out from the crowd, and finally, we came up with very stylish and slick product that simplifies setting an alarm down with just a couple of taps and swipes!
With super stylish touch wheel you can easily set up alarm. And you can always see alarm status without opening the app. What is more useful is that unique snooze interface lets you see how long it will take for alarm to sound again and lets you deactivate alarm during the snooze.
I usually have no problems with the native iPhone alarm system, but I can agree to the fact that it can be improved. Sometimes I still fumble a little bit with my iPhone to turn off the darned thing, so a big button can come in handy.
Also, I’m intrigued by this new way to set up an alarm using gestures and only a virtual dial to accomplish it.
You have my attention, AppAnnex.
It will be a universal app, so I’m guessing this would be also interesting to test out on the iPad. I don’t usually have it near my bed, but we can give it a go and see what gives, right?
This “one-button-app-for-a-one-button-device” concept makes me curious, and if you are too, keep your eyes open for its release on the 19th.
Do you already use a different alarm app, or do you prefer to stick to the native iOS one? Will you try this one out?
Good news everyone!
Remember a few days ago when we talked about Net Master HD, an amazing app for IT technicians?
Well, it seems its little iPhone brother is now available for free (for a limited time), so don’t wait anymore. Just grab it!
Check the review (link above) and take it!
Do you have a limited amount of data usage from your phone carrier? Are you having trouble controlling it? I do. I mean, I did.
My Data Manager by Mobidia Technology is a great app that will help you managing your network data usage, roaming, or even WiFi traffic amount.
The app has great visuals, with charts and a lot of information.
When you install it, you’ll be able to set the monthly limit, and the first day of your billing cycle.
Additionally, you may enter the amount of data you’ve already used for the current month, but this is optional.
This is a simple app that will self-reset at the beginning of each cycle, but will maintain the “old” data for reporting purposes.
It’s user-friendly, provides nice information, and you can set up 3 different notifications, as warnings. For example, if you have 600MB per month, you can set a notification for when you reach 500MB, another for 550MB, and the 3rd for 600MB.
If you want to use it full throttle, you can also check the Usage Map, where you check the places you’ve used the different types of data traffic.
This app is free for a limited time, so you better grab it!
