- Adobe Slate
You can plug in your accounts from email services including Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo or iCloud. There’s also options to add your Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Docs and even your Twitter, Facebook or Instagram apps.Once you do, it will drag out every photo, document, pdf, media file and even links and arrange them all by type, person, interest or service, meaning you don’t have to add meta tags for everything that gets added. All your files are then presented in a series of elegant tiles on an infinite scrolling UI.
You can add additional cubes or channels, which in turn can be customized to show only certain types of file. There’s also an ‘add contact’ feature which allows you to see all the files exchanged between you and that person – they don’t need to have the app for the feature to work.
It’s a nice way of keeping on top of all the files you send to the cloud and helps you dig them out when you need them.

Meet Flipp: an app that helps you discover flyers about deals on stuff that you buy and then do things like “favorite” them, “clip” them, not to forget sync them across your iPhones and iPads and then use them when you are out shopping. The bottom-line is clear: you save money on almost every purchase.
Flipp is one of those easy-to-use apps built for the iPhone and iPad. With Flipp, you can browse flyers for things that you buy. The app shows you a lot of discount/deal flyers that you can use the next time you are out shopping. The app also lets you search for discounts on stuff but all of that comes through flyers. I think it’s kind of local but since it currently aims at major retail/wholesale stores across the country, most of the discounts are going to be available everywhere.
PHHHOTO might be called the next-generation of photography-based social networking. Instead of plain, non-moving snapshots of your trip to the fair, you can create one-second animated GIFs to share with the world. t’s super minimalist tech, simply grabbing four photos in direct succession and stringing them together to form a GIF. But with quick app-switching to Instagram and integration with other social media, the app seems like one of many natural successors to our ingrained Instagram behavior.
They are more faster than video, best than stand stills. The global app users could simply use features of Like, comment, share, follow and invite all close friends. In addition the eminent Apple’s built-in iPhone camera could shoot Live Photos, finish with sound and motion, also efficaciously capturing footage before and after the respective shot.
There are two flavors of Scanbot, each of which is impressive in its own right. For free, you get a superb iPhone scanner with cloud storage integration, QR code support, and the means to detect edges for any paper document you want to digitize. Upgrade to Scanbot Pro and things get more interesting. You can add pages to existing scans, quickly name files using a clever smart-naming system, and search/extract text from previous scans.
There’s also an automated actions feature, where the app finds the likes of phone numbers and email addresses within your scans, turning them into single-tap buttons within each item’s actions menu. It’s not quite accurate enough to be witchcraft, but we nonetheless happily leave important scans within Scanbot these days, rather than immediately deleting after export.
