iPhone App of the Week: BADLAND 2

Who doesn’t like great iPhone apps? At iPhone Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPhone app published here each week.  Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite phone.

This week’s pick is BADLAND 2, by Frogmind.  The app is currently 50% off–what a great reason to give the sequel to Apple’s App of the Year a try!  Game apps on my iPhone are a tricky proposition for me.  For the most part they reside in one of two categories–apps that I would really like to try for one reason or another, or apps that I have played a few times, but have since been forgotten and now just take up space in my extra storage space.  One thing I’ve noticed over the last few weeks, is that I don’t make time in my day for any leisure/fun time–even if just for a 10 minutes at a time.  I haven’t made it a resolution or anything serious like that, but I’d like to allow myself a little more down time.

iPhone App of the Week: Runtastic Results: Strength & Fitness Workout

Runtastic for iPhone

Who doesn’t like great iPhone apps? At iPhone Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPhone app published here each week.  Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite phone.

This week’s pick is Runtastic Results: Strength & Fitness Workout, by Runtastic.  Perhaps on the surface it might seem like a copout to select an exercise app for the App of the week, being that it is the first week in a brand new year.  However, being that losing weight and getting in shape is one of the most reported New Year’s resolutions, I actually think that it’s the perfect choice.  Although many of us try to use a new year to get back on track with a variety of causes in our lives, many just don’t know where to start when it comes to exercise.

My Two Favourite RSS Apps for iPhone

screen-shot-2017-01-02-at-12-38-58-pm

I tried an experiment a few years ago where I used Twitter in lieu of RSS. The idea was to try and get my news and online interactions in a single platform. I kept the number of people I followed to a minimum, but I focused on creating different lists to suit different types of interests (long reads, tech news, photography, etc.). I deemed the experiment a failure after a few weeks because using Twitter like that made me feel like I could never make any progress in my news feed. That’s one of the addicting things about RSS for me: it’s an inbox that I can actually conquer.

I’ve tried quite a number of different RSS apps over the years, and the ones I’ve stuck with the longest have been Unread and Reeder for iPhone. I tend to use Reeder more often, but I’ll download Unread every few months just for a change of pace.

Review: Darkroom for iPhone

review of Darkroom for iPhone5

Darkroom is a photo editing app that deserves a lot more attention than it currently gets. The photo editing market is already quite crowded, and there are a ton of apps out there that can a decent shot and make it a great one in a couple of taps. You know the drill: you load an app up, tap it to open a photo from a camera roll or album, edit, and then save that photo. Rinse and repeat. The vast majority of photo apps haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about how else users might browse and edit photos. The developers of Darkroom obviously have, and this is one of its killer features.
