iPad App (bundle) of the Week: Ultimate Productivity Bundle by Readdle

Ultimate Productivity Bundle by Readdle

Great apps make great platforms, and iOS and iPad are a great proof of that. One of the most captivating things about the iPad is the incredible range of great apps we are able to use and enjoy on Apple’s tablet. Each Saturday we share a favorite outstanding app as iPad App of the Week.

This week’s pick is an app bundle rather than a single app. App Bundles are brand new to the App Store and offer up sets of apps or games from the same developer available at special prices. Our pick this week is Ultimate Productivity Bundle by Readdle. This is a set of excellent productivity apps from one of the very best developers in that category of apps, at 25% off.

The four apps include in the Ultimate Productivity Bundle are PDF Expert 5, Printer Pro, Scanner Pro, and Calendars 5. I own three out of these four apps – not Calendars 5 as I’m just not a power calendar user – and I can vouch for the stellar quality of each of them.

This week’s pick is Ask Me Anything – official reddit AMA app. This is of course reddit’s hugley popular and always interesting AMA interviews, brought to iOS. I should mention that this is actually an iPhone app that’s compatible with the iPad – not a full-blown iPad app yet. Having said that, for this type of app the iPhone version is more than good enough to use happily on an iPad.

Reddit Ask Me Anything, or AMA, are free-flowing interviews or Q&A sessions where community members ask their subject anything that springs to mind. They’re known for being some of the most open and interesting interviews around. And the Ask Me Anything app has packaged these nicely for iOS.

iPad App of the Week: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Dual Destinies

Great apps make great platforms, and iOS and iPad are a great proof of that. One of the most captivating things about the iPad is the incredible range of great apps we are able to use and enjoy on Apple’s tablet. Each Saturday we share a favorite outstanding app as iPad App of the Week.

I was surprised and delighted to find Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Dual Destinies available on the App Store yesterday. I really loved the series of Phoenix Wright games on the Nintendo DS and 3DS. Yes, the series is a bit formulaic and the basic gameplay of questioning witnesses and finding evidence at crime scenes hasn’t changed much, but the dialogue is always spot-on and the storyline would usually keep me up for hours.

The game feels like it snuck onto the front page carousel, and the iTunes reviews say that it’s the very best port yet. The older Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD is a functional set of games, but they feel like literal cut-and-paste jobs of the Nintendo DS versions. Dual Destinies, on the other hand, looks right at home on the iPad.
