Remember earlier in January of this year when we here at AlliOSNews encouraged you to take part in the Crono Kickstarter program for their new mail app for iPad? While it was a long and winding road, that Kickstarter plan evolved into MailDeck and the MailDeck app for iPad and iPad Mini has launched.
Oh it is so worth the wait!
MailDeck is touts as being a balance between beauty and robustness and in my short time of working with it, I think they have hit the mark spot on.
Here is the Press Release announcing the MailDeck app:
MailDeck, the latest and perhaps the most unique in a crowd of fresh email apps, launches today in the iPad App Store. Redesigned from the ground up, MailDeck is the product of a fine balance between beauty and robustness. In other words, this isn’t your grandma’s email client— although the founders will be quick to tell you, she could easily figure out how to
Utilizing the plethora of information contained within your inbox, MailDeck cleverly groups relevant bits of information together, bringing into view the associated contacts, messages, tasks, and attachments at the touch of a finger. The new application also employs an impressive search function with 11 available filters, effectively ending the days of generalized search terms and scrolling endlessly for a long lost email.
With the power of a desktop email client and portability and finesse of a quick moving mobile app, MailDeck has officially upgraded mobile email. Add to that the different view modes, personalized color schemes, and multi-account sharing capabilities, email starts to seem more like a charm than a chore.
MailDeck currently supports all IMAP accounts and is free to download. It is Ad supported but you can make an In-App purchase of $4.99 that removes those adverts plus gives you the ability to create custom signatures.
I’ll be working with the MailDeck app for the next few days as I prepare a review for you but don’t wait for me: Go to the App Store and download it and try it yourself.
There is talent and then there is this…
Visual artist Kyle Lambert has posted the most incredible video of him producing a photo-realistic painting of a portrait of Morgan Freeman and he used his finger, an iPad and the app Procreate. Mr. Lambert spent over 200 hours producing this incredible piece of digital art and if this doesn’t show you the power of an iPad and a built-for-purpose app in the right hands, nothing will convince you.
Take a look…
I’ve posted a few times on Procreate here on AlliOSNews and it is unquestionably one of the best painting applications for iPad today. If you are looking for such an app look no further. Clearly it is up to the task.
Announcing the SmartDay app – an integrated calendar, journal, task manager, and project planner for iPhone, iPad, and Mac computers. SmartDay automatically schedules pending tasks into the free time in one’s calendar and updates them adaptively as situations change. By combining tasks and events into a single time-line view, it’s easy to see what can be accomplished by the end of the day, taking the stress out of ‘getting things done.’ SmartDay synchronizes across all Apple devices via its free cloud hub, SmartDay Online.
A Truly Integrated Calendar:
The key to the SmartDay app is an integrated calendar that displays a proposed agenda for the entire day – fixed appointments and schedules, plus prioritized tasks, even important notes. The calendar adapts effortlessly to shifting priorities, to faster or slower completion of tasks, and even to changes in one’s working day (“My afternoon meeting was cancelled – what else can I get done?”).
Notes And Journaling:
Notes can be associated with any date by dragging them into the calendar. They can also be linked to other tasks and events – for example, notes from a meeting can be linked to action items from that meeting, and to an upcoming follow-up meeting, for easy reference.

It’s that time of the year! Turkey has been consumed, Christmas trees and Menorahs are being lit and a new update for Angry Birds Seasons is available in the app store for the holiday and winter seasons! That’s right, Rovio has just dropped version 4.0 of Angry Birds Seasons for iPhone and the HD version for iPad into the App Store and it brings us the Arctic “Eggspedition” for the winter 2013.
In this update of Angry Birds Seasons you have 25 new levels along with 4 bonus levels. These new levels take your bird-flingin-pig-poppin fun to the cold air and icy waters of the arctic. Like last year’s update, the 25 levels are arranged in an advent calendar meaning that you get one new level each day before Christmas in December. Yep, that means you have to
play Angry Birds Seasons Every. Single. Day. in December.
Everyone say “Awwww”…. I know, it’s a tough life….
Now if you are impatient and want to unlock all the levels at once, you can do so for an in-app purchase of .99 Cents.
Like previous versions of Seasons, you have the ability to launch birds into the water and have them come up from below to attack those piggies so it isn’t just a matter of working out the physics of the game in the air. You have to do it in the water as well.
Personally I love Angry Birds Seasons. It is one of my favourite version of the Angry Birds franchise and the updates each year make it just that much more fun. It is a constantly changing game and every update is free. Well worth the price of admission.
Angry Birds Seasons for iPhone and iPod Touch is .99 Cents while the HD version for iPad and iPad Mini is $2.99. There are multiple in-app purchases available but none are required to play the game to its completion.

Software development company, TappyTaps has announced a Thanksgiving event sale for Baby Monitor 3G for both iOS and Mac. The Baby Monitor 3G app lets you hear every noise from your baby’s room, and you can even see live video, talk to, and soothe your child remotely. Past versions required two iOS devices: the first remained in the child’s room as the monitor unit, while the second remained with the parents; and, until now, the Mac could only be used as the parent device.
But, following feedback and requests from our customers, this new update of Baby Monitor 3G for Mac also lets you use
your computer as a monitoring device. This gives you far greater flexibility and means you can check on your baby from an iPhone, iPad, iPad Touch, or even another Mac. This highly requested feature gives parents greater flexibility and even allows those without two iOS devices to use the app to its full potential.
