I’ve been having a few issues with Gmail of late, the iOS app in particular, where it’s not showing my new emails despite sending me notifications that I have new email. It’ll load on say the iPhone, but not the iPad, and vice versa….so right now I’m gagging for a new email client that works well with Google Apps.
Mailbox looks like it might be a solution. Can’t wait to check it out.

It’s gorgeous, it’s stable, it’s full-featured, andI like its icon.
To be fair, he’s right, it is a great app with a pretty decent icon..
Holy Crap, I’m Programming on My iPad: A Web Developer’s look at Diet Coda
Diet Coda is great. Seriously. This app might not be your first choice to do serious work on (yet). However, if the only reason you’re taking your huge, heavy laptop with you on that otherwise relaxing vacation is just in case you get the 5-alarm-fire call from your boss because of a major bug that needs to get fixed RIGHT NOW (don’t they all?), Diet Coda and an iPad with an LTE/3G connection could be all you need.
Just in case you didn’t like my quick write up on Diet Coda.

The Australian Financial Review has recently released their iPad version. If you’re familiar with some of Fairfax’s other digital offerings the interface will be very familiar.
As per Fairfax’s other digital ‘news papers’ all the media and text is responsive, allowing you to read in both portrait and landscape formats, swiping around the different sections is quick and responsive, and unlike many of the magazines available on Newsstand The Australian Financial Review is quick to download for offline viewing.
The app itself is free, there’s a 14 day trial offer, and of course you can subscribe for $59 per month.
I take loads of screen shots on my iPad and iPhone, and it sucks that they end up syncing with iCloud and invariably end up on my Apple TV screen saver….this doesn’t fix it, unless you’ve got ninja fast skills and launch Screenshot Journal before iCloud sucks up your photos, but at least it lets you organise them and remove them from Photos app.
Definitely worth the $1.99 in the App Store if you grab loads of screen shots.

A pretty nifty sensor that you put in the soil of your indoor plants that measures moisture, ambient temperature, and a few other things, and sends them to an iPhone app letting you know if it needs more water, light, etc.

From the retro desktop-style interface through to the clunky name — Documents Unlimited PDF & Office Editor Apps for iPad — not a single aspect of this experience has been left untouched by the clunky hand of open-source UI design committees.
It’s pretty damn ugly, and expensive too…even at it’s sale price of $5.

I just love the title of Eddie’s post, and this quite;
It almost feels like I’m lifting a piece of paper off the table and into the digital world.
(ps. there’s a couple of useful tips too)
(pps. the article’s about scanning things with your iPad and editing them and what not)
I’m a total sucker for a gorgeous looking app, and Paper is a gorgeous looking drawing, sketching, writing, moleskine replacement, app. Check out their demo video below.
It’s in-app purchase model is a little weird I guess, the app itself is free but you pay $1.99 a go for the drawing tools you want, i.e. sketching, outlining, writing, colouring…or for $7.99 you can get the lot.
Anyway, it’s in the App Store now.
