Google Street View 1.0 for iOS iPhone screenshot 001

A month ago, Google promised to release a standalone Street View mobile app “early next month.” Today, the Internet giant has made good on that promise as the all-new Google Street View app just hit the App Store (actually, it soft-launched in August 2014, but today’s update feels like a whole new app and anyone can use it now).

Available for the iPhone and iPod touch, it lets you browse and enjoy Google’s awesome street-level photography.

With this software, you can move and pan around by dragging your finger on the screen and even upload your own 360-degree photography to Google Maps to share your photo spheres with the world.... Read the rest of this post here

Review: WatchWeb for Apple Watch kinda brings web browsing to your wrist

WatchWeb 1.0 for iOS Apple Watch screenshot 002

Like the Apple TV, your Apple Watch lacks the built-in Safari browser. Even though the case can be made quite easily for surfing the web on a big screen TV from the comfort of your couch, who in their right mind—and why— would want to squint at the tiny screen to read webpages?

No one, that’s right. But still, what if you could browse the web from your wrist? If you argue that an Apple Watch web browser is a terrible, terrible idea, I’m with you.

But what if there was a way to quickly look up information, sports scores or anything else on the Apple Watch that Siri can’t do for you? Enter WatchWeb, a web browser of sorts for the Apple Watch by Conifer Apps.

It’s a novel idea that certainly has legs, but boy is it iffy. I had mixed results during my hands-on time with WatchWeb so read on my review for the full reveal.... Read the rest of this post here

Review: ReBoard keyboard boosts your productivity and cuts down on app switching

ReBoard Keyboard 1.0 for iOS teaser 001

The biggest thing about iOS 8 for me is a productivity boost stemming from new technologies such as pervasive inter-app communications, third-party actions in system-wide Share sheets and more. But for all the good work Apple’s done from a productivity standpoint, iOS (version 9 included) still has some way to go before it’s capable to exceed multitasking features on Microsoft’s Surface tablets or Samsung’s Note phablet, for example.

ReBoard, a new software keyboard for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad created by India’s independent developer Gursimranjeet Singh, puts useful actions for performing common tasks and all sorts of look ups right into the keyboard itself so you won’t need to switch back and forth between apps like an animal.

By embedding useful third-party shortcuts within the context of the keyboard, ReBoard can save you a lot of time and boost your productivity.... Read the rest of this post here

Bing for iPhone picks up Interests and News, gains private searching, Apple Watch app and more

Bing Search 5.7 for iOS iPhone screenshot 001

Microsoft’s Bing for iPhone app was updated last evening with several new features such as Bing Interests, Bing News, a private searching mode, the Popular Now section on your Apple Watch and other enhancements.

I typically use Google’s native search app on my iPhone, but Bing saw some rather interesting improvements in recent months. In my personal opinion, Microsoft’s search-based app is better designed than Google’s with richer descriptions and prettier images.

More importunely, Bing’s popular searches feature produces way more relevant results than Google, at least for me.... Read the rest of this post here
