Review: Comics, a digital comic reader and store for the iPhone

From Just Another iPhone Blog:

One thing that comics can’t easily achieve in paper form is the idea of a panned shot. You either have the whole two-page spread of the hero pulling out his weapon to kill the villain, or you do a reveal on the next page and leave the reader in suspense. This is an area where I think Comics, and its use of comiXology formatted issues, really shines. Each panel is specially formatted for the iPhone screen for maximum dramatic effect — turning the comic experience into something more of an awesome slideshow than a page turner. However, Comics does go beyond just the reading, as it’s also a place to buy your digital issues and locate stores around the city to buy paperback issues.

File Magic review

From Kathy Schrock's Kaffeeklatsch:

Okay...this is pretty cool. Using Splash Data's File Magic desktop and iPhone app, I am typing this blog post in the email component of the File Magic desktop app. Once I am done, since I have no data connection from my laptop, I simply hit "send" and the email moves over to the open File Magic app on the iPhone, and then I can simply use the iPhone's cellular data connection to send this post!

Review: SplashTravel for iPhone by SplashData

From Gear Diary:

SplashData has been creating software for mobile devices since 2000, beginning with Palm software and the SplashWallet suite. As new platforms began to gain traction, SplashData expanded and began releasing software for them (BlackBerry, Series 60), and for a year now they’ve been releasing applications for the iPhone. One of their most recent releases is a version of their travel application, SplashTravel, for the iPhone.
In a way, it was also nice that the look and feel of the user interface was consistent from platform to platform; users knew what they were getting if they were migrating from say, Windows Mobile to iPhone. In the case of SplashTravel, there isn’t a Windows Mobile equivalent, but there is a Palm equivalent. This time around, SplashData revamped the interface from the Palm version to be more suitable for the iPhone’s screen, although it still retains an aesthetic that is similar to other SplashData iPhone software.

Yes, among the 15,000+ apps in the App Store, there are several file transfer apps available, but having spent some time with File Magic from SplashData, available here in the App Store for $4.99, I can report that it’s easy to use and increases the functionality of your iPhone or iPod Touch.

Review of SplashID for iPhone

From The iPhone Blog:

SplashID [$4.99 - iTunes link] is an app for the iPhone and iPod touch that provides a great place to store your data securely with a password. Just how secure is it? Super secure. 256bit Blowfish secure.

I have used SplashID for years on the Palm OS. I was so excited to see that SplashData brought SplashID to the iPhone last year as I was easily able to port my old files over to the iPhone using their desktop companion app.

So what does SplashID do for you? A lot, let’s take a look after the break!

    File Magic 2.0 Review

    From Smartphone Fanatics:

    Have you ever felt constrained by the types of data you can sync to your iPhone or iPod touch? Apple’s iPhone 3.0 software can read Microsoft Office files and Adobe Acrobat documents that have been sent as email attachments, but there is no easy way to get commonly used documents on to your device. Wouldn’t it be cool if all it took to sync documents with your iPhone was to simply drag and drop the files into a window? If that seems like something you want, then you need SplashData’s File Magic!

    File Magic for iPhone review

    From The Gadgeteer:

    Many years ago, while using one of my Palm devices, I discovered a company named SplashData. They had, among other programs, an app called SplashPhoto. This pair of apps (one for Palm, one for Mac or PC) allowed me to sync photos with my Palm, creating an electronic brag book - photos I had taken, optimized for the small square of screen I carried everywhere. Recently, SplashData have begun to create apps for the iPhone. I’ve recently been asked to look at a new program called File Magic.

    SplashTravel Splashes Onto the iPhone

    From PC Mag's AppScout:

    SplashData unveiled its SplashTravel suite for the iPhone, an app that had previously only been available for Palm OS-powered Treo smartphones--and one that should give the more expensive WorldMate a run for its money.

    SplashTravel gives iPhone and iPod Touch users a trip organizer for air, hotel, and car reservations, along with a comprehensive flight tracker that lists gate, plane, and flight status info.

    Review: PhatWare’s WritePad Notes, Affairs, and Events

    From Gear Diary:

    Phatware has been making handwriting recognition and note taking software for [what were called at the time] pocket PCs and smartphones since 1997. I’ve used PhatPad on my Windows Mobile devices for quite a few years now, and it’s often one of the first things that I install when I get a new device. When they announced their first products for the iPhone at the end of May, Phatware offered Gear Diary an opportunity to review their first three programs: WritePad Notes, WritePad Affairs, and WritePad Events. All three programs feature PhatWare’s handwriting recognition software for the iPhone, WritePad.

    Android App Review: PhoneFace from Electric Pocket

    From HTC Source:

    PhoneFace is a simple contact manager that allows you to scroll through your contacts by their picture. A quick tap on one of your contact's pictures give you options to call, text, email, or map their address (depending on what information you already have filled in for their profile). There are a few apps on the market that already do this, but PhoneFace has a few extra features that make it stand out. If you don't have a picture for one of your contacts, PhoneFace can connect with your FaceBook or Twitter account and grab them for your. You have the option of adding your entire contact list to PhoneFace or simply selecting the contacts you want.

    PhoneFace: Android G1 Speed Dialer & Contact Picture Synchronization

    From AndroidandMe:

    Facebook and Twitter have a lot of pictures of people who may be in your T-Mobile G1 with Google contact list. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a way for your 3G enabled smart phone to go out to these services and synchronize the photograph attached to your contact with the one your friends use in either Facebook or Twitter? What if that app also operated as a speed dialer for you most frequently called people?

    PhoneFace does just that.
