iPad and GoodReader: the perfect mobile office and vacation companion

From ZDNet:

It’s a good thing I brought the iPad since as I was sitting on the plane waiting to take off, I received a text asking me for my opinion on a presentation. I quickly fired up my iPad, downloaded the presentation and launched it into GoodReader. This way I had it saved for later viewing on the plane. I also launched a number of other attachments, to go along with the presentation. The nice thing about GoodReader is that it can view a ton of different attachment types, and also has a built-in file manager. This was helpful since I organized the attachments into different folders, and then even renamed some of the attachments.

We’ve covered WritePad quite a bit here on the pages of GBM and I personally think that if handwriting recognition is your thing, and you own an iPad, you can’t do any better than this App on that platform.

PhatWare WritePad 5 for the iPad updated

From Ubergizmo:

Entering text into a tablet can be a troublesome affair – especially when you don’t have an external physical keyboard, and you dislike typing on the touchscreen keyboard. Well the folks over at PhatWare have developed an app called WritePad that attempts to alleviate the situation. What if you could write your text instead of typing on a non-tactile keyboard?

In and Out Of Office: Putting iPads To Work

From Wall Street Journal's All Things Digital (Walt Mossberg):

Some apps for the iPad let you store large numbers of different types of files, view them and even annotate them. My favorite, GoodReader, is a $4.99 app that handles all the Microsoft Office file types, plus PDFs and more.
GoodReader even lets you type notes on, or draw on, PDFs, and then save and email the annotated version. It also allows you to organize files into folders and rename them. And it lets you retrieve files from cloud-based services, without having to switch to a separate app provided by those services. Among the cloud services it supports are Google Docs, Dropbox, SugarSync and iDisk.

Ringtone Remix Pro is Fresh


Ringtone Remix’s Magic Tone Maker makes it a snap to make a new ringtone or alert tone – just press the Magic Wand button and Ringtone Remix will automatically skip any quiet intros and give you a great ringtone!

Review: Ringtone Remix Pro for the iPhone

From RunAroundTech:

Ringtone Remix has some pretty unique features that separate it from the pack of other ringtone apps.  All these apps have one thing in common.  Steps.  They all require several.  You first create the ringtone on your phone using the app itself.  Then sync it to iTunes then back to your phone.  Where Ringtone Remix steps ahead of the rest is with its ability to sync over Dropbox. 

I found Ringtone Remix Pro incredibly easy to use.  The entire process of creating a ringtone, from editing it, to emailing it, to syncing it took under 10 minutes and worked perfectly.  You can’t ask for much more than that.
