1. JSON Designer App

    October 10, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    JSON Designer is another nice little developer utility. It's not earth shattering but it is useful.

    At a most basic level, JSON Designer provides an interface to visually create and dissemble JSON structures. The interface is attractive and easy to orient. It feels a lot like iThoughts HD but ...

  2. iGist App Review

    October 10, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    iGist is a free app for iPad. It's a basic utility for accessing GitHub Gists. It has basic features, but it's worth the price. It is a convenient way to quickly access Gists.

    Accessing private and favorite gists is very easy. The lack of search makes general explorations ...

  3. iThoughts Update Adds Web Research Tools

    October 07, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Yeah, I'm pushing iThoughts HD again.1 The latest update adds a new standard feature for web research. It provides a builtin browser that can send links directly to the current outline. This might be the easiest way to quickly build a research outline on any platform. Did I ...

  5. Trapit App

    July 23, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    This will be the shortest review I have done for an app. I installed Trapit for iPad because I am a big Zite user.

    1. I configured Trapit to customize my news.
    2. I received a "Daily Digest Email" from Trapit the next day.
    3. I immediately deleted Trapit because they can't ...
  6. On Choosing the iPad [Link]

    July 20, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    The sole reason why I used the iPad to create the site was because it was the device that was available at the moment...

    Great explanation although it does sound like Robert needed to defend his use of an iPad. That's like defending the use of a laptop over ...

  7. Not So Brief Histories

    July 18, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Dave Caolo is doing some impressive research and writing over at 52Tiger.net.

    These are instant classics:

    Brief History of the iPad: Prologue

    Brief History of the iPad: Rumors

    This is top quality stuff and could easily be an eBook I would buy.

  8. Wordflex App Review

    July 09, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I like words. I'm not a word snob, but I've always loved opening a dictionary or encyclopedia and reading a random passage. I loved my high school thesaurus until the cover fell off and pages trickled across my college campus.

    It's nice to know that there are ...

  9. iThoughts HD 4 Update

    June 19, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    iThoughts HD1 is out with a new update. For the uninitiated, iThoughts is the best visual outliner available on any device. It's that good. I still love to open it up just to slide an outline around. His rendering is like butter.

    There are two interesting aspects to ...

  10. Mail Gesture of the Day

    June 06, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Maybe I'm a bit slow but my latest accidental discovery is the gesture to show the Inbox in Mail on iPad.

    While in portrait orientation, slide a finger from left to right to show the current mailbox. To hide the mail box, slide from right to left (or just ...
