Who doesn’t like great iPad apps? At iPad Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPad app, or a few great iPad apps, here each week.

Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday. Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.

This week’s pick is 120 Sports, another very good iPad app for US sports fans that offers up over 10 hours of live programming every day.

One of the nicest things about this app right out of the box is that it doesn’t require any cable subscription or authentication – and it’s a free app too, with no In-App purchases needed or offered.

It’s great to see Microsoft accelerating its efforts to bring more of its software to iOS (and Android too with these 5 new apps) – and these look like quite good little free apps.

iPad App of the Week: Wars and Battles – Turn-based Strategy Wargames

Wars and Battles iPad game

Who doesn’t like great iPad apps? At iPad Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPad app, or a few great iPad apps, here each week.

Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday. Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.

This week’s pick is Wars and Battles – Turn-based Strategy Wargames.  I’m a huge fan of strategic wargames, so I love seeing this short intro to this app:

Wars and Battles is a platform of turn-based wargames that simulate historical battles and campaigns over several centuries and continents. Wars and Battles offers you rich and immersive graphics, intuitive yet sophisticated gameplay and hours and hours of game. Integrating the sophistication of traditional wargames into tablets is our commitment to players fond of strategy, history or the military.

I was lucky enough to be offered a pre-release look at the app, and I’ve been enjoying it over the last week or so. For now, the game offers its first battle – Normandy 1944, from the D-Day landing through to the Battle of the Falaise Pocket. It has over 300 units and more than 30 scenarios to play through, varying weather, and 9 types of terrain to contend with.

Healthy Recipes by SparkRecipes for iPad

Who doesn’t like great iPad apps? At iPad Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPad app, or a few great iPad apps, here each week.

Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday. Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.

This week’s pick is Healthy Recipes by SparkRecipes for iPad, which I’m going to shorten to Healthy Recipes in the rest of this post to try to keep my wrists healthy. The app’s name lets you know what’s on offer – a great collection of healthy recipes – over 500,000 in fact – from SparkRecipes.com, which is touted as the world’s largest healthy recipes site.

I’m just about the perfect target audience for this app, because I’m continually trying to eat healthier but my cooking skills are pretty much non-existent. There are a huge number of cooking and cookbook apps for the iPad and I’ve looked at and installed quite a few of them. Healthy Recipes has been the one that gave me a good comfort level quickly and didn’t scare me off.

iPad App of the Week: VSCO Cam for iPad

Who doesn’t like great iPad apps? At iPad Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPad app, or a few great iPad apps, here each week.

Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday. Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.

This week’s pick is VSCO Cam, a universal photo shooting and editing app for iPhone and iPad.

VSCO Cam was actually one of the app extensions teased this year at the iOS 8 announcement, but strangely enough, still does not feature any kind of photo extension. You’ve still got to do all the edits in the app, but that’s now a little easier with native apps across both types of iOS devices, and iCloud sync.

This means I can shoot photos on the iPhone and take advantage of the app’s manual focus and ISO settings, and then load the app up on my iPad to edit those same shots on the glorious 10-inch Retina Display. It honestly took a while for me to get into VSCO’s style of menu buttons and edits, but now that I am, I think it’s my favourite iOS photo editor.

There are options to view photos in nearly fullscreen, as large thumbnails, or as a smaller grid of pictures. This is why VSCO is great not just as an editing app, but as a place to sit back and actually review a day’s worth of shots.

There are simple on-screen sliders for adjusting contrast/brightness/saturation (and more), and the large numbers of filters can be adjusted so that they just add flavour to a photograph, instead of overtaking it with a shock of colour or graphical effects.
