iPad App of the Week: Afterlight

 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 Afterlight…although I’m not really talking about the base app, but isn’t actually the app per se, but its excellent extension. Afterlight fulfills the promise of iOS 8 for me: the ability to use the Photos app for photo management, viewing, and editing.

Greetings Meatbag

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 CARROT Weather – Talking Forecast Robot -  a wise-cracking, snark serving ‘weatherbot’ in the form of an iPad app.

Now there are plenty of very good iPad weather apps – from those with beautiful still and video imagery to others with copious amounts of detailed maps and comprehensive weather information. But … CARROT Weather serves up the weather with a healthy dose of sarcasm and humor – and that’s quite a nice new spin on a weather app.

Right from the first time you launch it CARROT Weather sets the tone – as you can see in the screencap above – with its ‘Greetings meatbag’ message. It follow that up by letting you know it needs just a moment while it is ‘meteorologizing’.

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 March Madness Live, the 2015 version of the official iPad and iOS app for the madness that is the NCAA Mens basketball tournament.

For those of you scoring at home, this is the third year in a row I’m picking this app at around this time of year. Here’s the single feature that justifies the repeat picks and makes this a true must-have app for fans of college basketball:

Watch every game from the 2015 NCAA® Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament live on your iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch

Boom. This app could have no other features at all and that’s more than enough to make it great. March Madness is arguably the most thrilling annual sporting event anywhere – with its constant stream of underdog heroics, last second buzzer-beating clutch shots, and just great basketball from start to finish.

This week’s pick is Instacart, a service which delivers groceries to your doorstep within as little as one hour. It works with orders from local stores like Whole Foods Market, Costco, Kroger, The Food Emporium, Super Fresh and others depending on the area you live in.

As someone who spends a lot of quality time in a large grocery store at least once a week, and usually on Sundays, this sort of service has huge appeal – even if it means paying a bit extra once in a while to indulge some laziness.
