Skyfire Web browser App

The Skyfire Web browser app for the iphone is THE browser for the iphone. It has tabs and bookmarks like Safari but what makes it stand out is it plays flash. For whatever reason why Apple and Adobe aren’t getting along and won’t allow flash on the iphone this app allows you to view those websites that have flash embedded in them without getting the ‘flash player needed’ message. There’s an option in the settings where you can load page as iPhone or Desktop, as well as, a private browsing option. There’s also easier access to clear cookies, cache, etc. If you get a link from somewhere else say an email you can just copy the link then open up Skyfire and it will ask if you want to visit the link that is on the clipboard. This app does cost a little, it is $2.99 in the App store, however, if you frequent flash sites it is worth it.   ****UPDATE**** If you have a jailbroken iPhone you can change the default browser so sites launch in Skyfire.

weather HD app

There are many weather apps out there for iphone and android phones, but one that stands out is WeatherHD. This app has HD animated graphics and all. At only .99 in the app store, it is well worth it. You can have multiple cities and swipe left/right to get to them. There’s an option for extended forecast too, and hide it to see the full view of the stunning graphics. Overall, this app is much better than the one that comes with the iphone. Check it out in the Apple App store.

iPad review

I have had the iPad for over a month now and still think it’s an amazing device. I recently took it on a trip back home to Buffalo and I did not bring a laptop. It was a success for mostly using email and the web, there is no facebook app but it worked well in the browser. Watching movies and online video like hulu is nice. There was a slight issue with the wifi for it would not always stay connected after coming out of sleep mode, I would have to go into the wifi settings and rejoin the network. I do not have a stand for it so sometimes trying to type and hold it against my leg while sitting can be a pain if your typing a lot. Other wise, iBooks and the amazon kindle app worked well, especially while reading on the plane. There are also more and more magazine apps coming out, the wired magazine app is well worth it. Overall, if your thinking of getting one, get it. Preferably the wifi version, there’s wifi everywhere and free, in airports, hotels, starbucks and borders. So you don’t really need the 3G version and it’ll save you an extra $30 a month.
