mRelease Lets You Create & Sign Model Releases On Your iPhone/touch

If you do any kind of photography, video or other projects involving actors, models, a crew or location, then chances are you need a release form signed. The problem with paper forms is remembering to bring them with you. It seems I forget all to often. Now I have a model release with me at all times and it's in the device that I always carry. It's in my iPhone. This App is very cool by design. You enter some basic information about the shoot/project, then you enter some info about the model, property, etc. and lastly you can even take or use a photo from your library. Once you've entered this info a release is generated and can be signed right on screen. At this point the signed release will be generated as a PDF that you can email out to all that need it. 

Never forget your model release forms again

I love the idea behind this App. It's brilliant! The thought of whipping up a release form right in the palm of my hand and having the model sign it with their finger sounds soooo 2010 :) Also being able to add a photo right there on the spot is helpful too. A lot of photographers will use this to take a photo of the model's drivers license as proof of age/identity.

Navigon goes Regional at a Lower Cost!

I travel all over North America and the World. Already being a fan of the Navigon GPS App for iPhone and iPod touch I have both the North America and Europe versions of the App. However, I can certainly see the needs of those that only travel regionally. You're in luck! Navigon has just released "MyRegion"  versions of their App! It makes sense. If you only drive in a certain area, why pay for the entire country?

Now you can get:

MyRegion US East – covering: (AL, CT, DE, FL, GA, IN, KY, MA, ME, MD, MI, NH, NJ, NY, NC, OH, PA, Ri, SC, TN, VT, VA, WV) for an introductory price of $24.99

MyRegion US Central – covering: (AL, AR, CO, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, MI, MN, MO, MS, MT, NE, NM, ND, OH, OK, SD, TN, TX, WI, WY) for an introductory price of $24.99

MyRegion US West - covering: (AZ, CA, CO, ID, MT, NV, NM, OR, UT, WA, WY) for an introductory price of $24.99

Need a little more? Say two regions? No worries, just buy the main region you need and you can expand your coverage with an in-app purchase of up to two additional regions. So this way you can start with the main region you need, but add on later and only if you need to.

This is the kind of pricing that I felt these GPS Navigation Apps should have had all along! So don't hesitate. Jump on these introductory prices while the getting is good.

Also if you have an iPod touch or you just want a great Car Kit to go with your Navigon App, check out this one by Magellan.

Feathers enhances your tweets

If you use SMS texting, Twitter, Facebook or other social networking sites, then chances are you do regular status updates. While it's fun to do the occasional emoticon :) you can take it to the next level with Feathers.

Feathers allows you to turn your plain status messages into something more interesting

The App is simple to use. Just key in your message and then choose a style for it. You can even do upside down text. Once you've styled your text you can send it straight to Twitter. You can also copy the styled text and paste it into other apps. How does this work? Are there special fonts at work here? Nope! That's the beauty of it. It uses standard unicode characters and that's why you can use the text in just about any application.

TomTom plays catch up

Although I'm largely a fan of the Navigon North America GPS Navigation App because of the frequent feature updates, I believe that the competition we're seeing amongst these GPS Navigation Apps benefits us all. The New TomTom update brings Real-TimeTraffic Updates (an In App purchase), Google Local Search (the ability to find more current points of interest and navigate to them – this does require an internet connection, an updated Map and Music Fading.

All in all a sound update and welcomed features and I'm glad to see the competition continue to heat up!

Read websites on the go and offline with Read It Later Pro

As a frequent traveler there are times where I have no connectivity to the internet. As much progress is being made to equip planes with WiFi, I have yet to be on one that actually has a WiFi connection. Although I have a really good RSS reader on my iPhone that can cache my favorite sites, there are times when I run across articles on the web that are not in my regular feeds. These are articles of interest that I may not have the time to read right then and there. Luckily there's an App for that.

Read It Later Pro let's me take it all with me

Read It Later Pro works as a standalone App that basically allows you to download webpages and read them later offline. Simple concept and it's great that this App does that. However, Read It Later Pro goes way beyond that. My favorite way to use the App is in conjunction with my free account at readitlaterlist.com. Most times I run across sites that I just don't have time to read right then and there while I'm on my computer. So with the click of a button in my web browser toolbar I can add the page right then and there to my account on readitlaterlist.com. Once I bring up the App (say before getting on a plane) and hit the sync button, it will download all of those pages into my iPhone for reading while in flight and offline. You can even email links to the site for adding without having to go through your browser first. There are several ways to integrate this service into the different sites you already work with including Google Reader. You can add a link right in Google Reader that will send any article to Read It Later. This way you get the best of both worlds.
