Check Out GoodReader

From Dubuque Telegraph-Herald:

If you work with large PDF or text files, you know the challenge of working with them on the small screen.
GoodReader helps solve that problem.

Simply download the file into the program. Then when you access the file, you'll see how it can be manipulated and rotated for ease of reading.

The program also works with other formats, and can even play some audio files.

There are other bells and whistles, such as various download options (Wi-Fi, e-mail and Web), managing files and integration with some other apps.

But it's strength is reading PDFs. Any size can be read relatively easily. Several tools are available with just a tap on the screen.

There are quite a few good-looking notes applications for iPhone, but this one is probably one of my favorites.

6 Best iPad Apps for Business Users

From Mashable:

#1 - GoodReader. GoodReader is hands-down, the best PDF reader for the iPhone and the iPad version is even better. What makes GoodReader special is that it can not only view local files (and you can transfer files to it from iTunes), including PDF, Word, Excel, PNG, TXT, JPEG and more, but you can download files from a URL or connect to a web server.

It handles really large files extremely well (it can even unzip files) and it connects to Google Docs () so you can download your Google Docs files for offline reading or to open in another application for easy editing. At only $0.99, GoodReader is a steal and then some.

Review: BugMe! for Android, webOS, and iPhone OS

From ZDNet:

I started using Palm PDAs back in 1997 and one application that I used back then and found to be extremely helpful was BugMe!. BugMe! was a note taking application that gave you a virtual sticky note on your Palm PDA and the ability to write on your display too. Electric Pocket has evolved over the years as mobile devices have and today they have BugMe! for RIM BlackBerry, iPhone/iPod touch, iPad, Android, and Palm webOS devices.

Do You Need a Password Manager?


Ultimately, IT security geeks caution us into believing that any one system can deter all cyber crime.The so-called Aurora attack on Google is prime example number one. Yet the pros reiterate that the more difficult you can make it on a would-be attacker, the better your defense stands a chance. Eliminating the risk of phishing scams is a sure-fire shot in favor of good password managers (those that can handle complex logins, such as SplashID) as is mitigating your risk of malware (no small task).

Back from a previous life - Bug Me for the iPhone

From PalmAddicts:

Anyone who has had a Palm has certainly used BugMe sometime in his life.  I certainly did, and I think it was loaded onto every Palm that I owned.  Well, it's back for the iPhone and works really well - and it does a lot more than the Palm edition ever could do.

Great little app for only $.99, and now they have an iPad version as well.  It really takes me back to the old days.

SplashID review

From Know Your Mobile:

SplashID is a surprisingly useful tool. It’s easy to use, and keeps your passwords and secret information where you’re not likely to lose them. Keeping then on a secure Blackberry and backing up to a PC makes a lot of sense, especially when you can remotely wipe any lost devices, making sure no one gets their hands on your digital identity.

BugMe! review

From Know Your Mobile:

Way back when, back before smartphones, there was Palm and the first real PDA. There was also a rather useful little piece of software called BugMe! that did one thing, taking short notes, and did it well. Now BugMe! has made it to BlackBerry, and it’s still just that simple, and just that good – only now it can also take advantage of BlackBerry’s smartphone features.

How I Will Know When Megan Fox Calls Me – App Review: Ringo Pro

From Absolutely Android:

Well, first I would need her direct dial number, but I am working that. When that time comes, I will be ready with Ringo Pro. There are many applications that can set up a specific ringtone for certain people: even the stock phone and contacts apps on my G1 would do that 18 months ago. This application goes a little bit further though.  In addition to being able to assign a ringtone to certain contacts, Ringo Pro will also assign specific ringtones AND specific led colors AND specific vibrates to those contacts as well.

GoodReader comes to the iPad

From Macworld:

With all the new screen real estate that the iPad affords, it's a great candidate for an all-purpose reader device. While iBooks offers a lovely interface for e-books, there's also all those other files that clutter our desktops: PDFs, documents, spreadsheets, presentations, HTML pages, high-resolution images, and more. Luckily, GoodReader, one of the best all-purpose readers for the iPhone and the iPad Touch, is ready for the iPad's debut.
