Everybody loves RedLaser. I do too. However, there is one thing that RedLaser relies on that's the UPC barcode. So as long as you're holding the item in your hand or know the barcode number you can look up the price of the item. However, if you don't have the barcode info you're pretty much out of luck.
Save Benjis+ does both!
I've been a long time user of Save Benjis.. Save Benjis allows you to do a keyword search to look up the price of an item and compare that price at different locations. Now they have a new version called Save Benjis+ and as you might have guessed, the "+" is Barcode Scanning. Now you get one app that can check the price of an item if you have access to the barcode or if you just key in the name of the item.
The original Jawbone bluetooth headset was my least favorite headset of all time. However, I can easily see the Jawbone ICON quickly becoming my favorite. They got the size and fitting right as well as the iPhone integration can't be beat!
As far as sound quality goes, it's no better or no worse than any other headset I've used. It simply works, but it's not stellar. My callers tell me that I sound "OK" and I can hear them just fine.
I'm a fan of Netflix and therefore I'm always looking for a good app to manage my Netflix queue. One of the things I love to do is when I go to the movies and they are playing the trailers for movies that are coming soon, I like to add the ones to my queue right then and there that I want to see, but most likely will not see in theaters. Unfortunately Netflix doesn't offer their own native app so if you want to do this on your iPhone you'll have to use a 3rd party app.
I've tried several apps, but MovieFlick is my pick for "Best Netflix Queue Manager"
Honestly, none of the Netflix queue managers are perfect. Each one has things I like and things I don't like. So for me a Netflix app has to have a few things that I use all the time before I'll even consider it. First of all it has to have the a good, fast search. Those movie previews go by pretty quick, so I need to be able to find a movie fast and add it to my queue. I also need the app to have a good user interface that displays my regular queue and separates out my "Saved queue" for the movies I add that aren't out on disc yet. I also want to see what's available for "Instant" streaming on my TiVo HD. I should also be able to easily rearrange the order of the movies in my queue and of course see ratings, make ratings, see Rotten Tomatoes reviews, make reviews and see trailers. I also want to see if the movie is on Blu-ray vs. DVD. MovieFlick has all of this
Photoshop.com mobile has been updated to version 1.1, sporting some brand new features. First off, you now have the ability to open videos from your Photoshop.com account into the app and play these in slideshows.
On the photo side, they have added brand new straighten, sharpen and contrast tools which work in the way that you drag your finger over the photo to set the amount of the effect.
As a finishing-touches bit, eight artistic borders are now available from the effects menu, letting you add some nice-looking frames before you export out.
