When the iPhone 3GS came out one of the things I looked forward to the most was the built-in video camera. Sure it's not the best, HD or even widescreen, but if we take a chapter from the Chase Jarvis playbook: "the best camera is the one you have." So having an OK video camera is better than not having one at all when you need to capture the moment.
iVideoCamera allows you to capture video with any iPhone! That's right if you have a first generation iPhone or iPhone 3G, you can use this app to enable to the built-in still camera and mic to record video. The videos can then be shared via email, Facebook, YouTube and Vimeo.
Now that I have a job with the word "Worldwide" in the title, I need to get a better handle on dealing with multiple time zones. I need to set up conference calls and Adobe Acrobat Connect sessions with people all over the globe. Although the iPhone has a great World Clock feature built-in, it only deals with the current time and day.
TimeScroller allows you to view up to 9 cities without scrolling. You can then just tap to select the ones you need to include. At that point you can either advance manually to a time that's suitable for each of the selected cities or use the "Suggest a Time Feature" to come up with the best time for all the cities selected to have a web meeting or conference call.
It's that time of year again where I get to choose my picks for the Hottest, Baddest Apps of Year! There were certainly several great apps this year, but I had to narrow it down to this list of KILLER APPS! These apps are the Best of the Best and either are extremely useful, additively entertaining or really push the envelope of the iPhone/iPod touch platform. So in no particular order…
RedLaser is an amazing app from a technology standpoint and it was one of the hottest selling apps of 2009! With redlaser your iPhone becomes a barcode scanner that looks up the price of an item scan from multiple sources over the internet. They even added a "Local" category to find the item at local vendors based on your current location.
Comparison shopping has never been better! See my original review here. Get RedLaser from the App Store here:
