For those that are fortunate enough to have both an iPhone and an iPad, I suppose that dressing them up like twins is worth a shot if the right look presents itself.  If you’re into that concept at all, Mashable has a nice post up today with a short list of 5 matching iPhone and iPad cases.

My favorites – by far – are the Vers Audio Wooden Cases shown above.  They’re a little on the pricy side, but quite sharp looking.

Check out all five iDevice case-twinning options at Mashable’s post here:

Apple have announced today that iPad sales have passed the two million mark, in less than sixty days since its launch on April 3rd.

iPad sales seem to be continuing at an amazing pace – especially since it has only very recently gone on sale in nine nations outside the US, with nine more due to have it available in July and others later this year.

ProSwitcher – the iPhone’s Best App Switching App – Coming to the iPad Soon

ProSwitcher HD

ProSwitcher – easily the best quick app switching app for the iPhone – should soon be coming to the iPad. 

The screenshot above is a sight for sore eyes.  It shows ProSwitcher HD – which is the iPad version of PoSwitcher, and it was shared in a tweet from one of its lead developers, chpwn.

The tweet only says that ProSwitcher HD is ‘moving forward’ – so there is no projected release date yet, but based on the activity on the ProSwitcher timeline it looks like they are working through many issues and making good progress.

ProSwitcher is an app that requires a jailbroken device.  Combined with Backgrounder, it provides a superb method for switching rapidly and easily between multiple apps running in the background.  Here’s hoping we see ProSwitcher HD very soon.

I spotted this news via a tweet from my friend Sebastien.

New iPad Apps: Project Pad Promises Project Management Made Easy

Project Pad for iPad

Project Pad is a new iPad app with a tag line of ‘Project management made easy‘.  It’s the first project management focused app for the iPad that I’ve seen. There are a good number of iPhone apps in this area, but the iPad’s bigger screen should lead to superior offerings I would imagine – and it looks like Project Pad is aiming to be one of those.

Project Pad was designed specifically to take advantage of the unique features of the amazing iPad platform and deliver a touch-based, easy-to-use tool to professionals and non-professionals alike.

WiFi Sync Now Works on iPad (jailbreak only)

Wi-Fi Sync for iPad

The excellent Wi-Fi Sync jailbreak app is now available for the iPad – and it works and provides lovely wireless iTunes sync.

Now here’s a good reason for having kept my iPad jailbroken, even though I haven’t been using many jailbreak apps.  Wi-Fi Sync was an instant favorite app on my iPhone, as I am a big hater of having to be cable-connected in order to sync.  So I’m very, very happy to see Wi-Fi Sync hit the iPad, and to see that it works well in my very quick testing of it.

Crazy iPad Numbers: Outselling Mac in International Markets?


Early reports suggest that Apple has sold most of its first run of international iPad shipments, which has lead one analyst to predict that the iPad will outsell the Mac internationally this quarter.

Mike Abramsky with RBC Capital Markets said Friday that he believes between 600,000 and 700,000 iPads will be sold overseas in June, though the number could go even higher. If that forecast is accurate, it would well exceed the 500,000 Macs expected to be sold in June.

Impressive numbers, if they prove to be accurate – especially as the article goes on to point out that the iPad is still not available in 78 out of 88 countries where the iPhone is.

Abramsky is also quoted as saying he thinks Apple will ramp up production to compensate for initial supply shortages, and predicts sales of 8.1 million iPads in 2010.

Quick Look – FryPaper, Stephen Fry’s First iPad App

FryPaper iPad app

Stephen Fry’s first iPad app – FryPaper – has launched today, as expected, to go along with the launch of the iPad in the UK (and eight other nations).  The name of the app – originally said to be FryPad – looks to have been changed to fall in line with Apple’s policy on no usage of the word ‘pad’ within app titles.

The app is a very basic and bare bones one for now, in which some of Fry’s latest writings are shared.
