I recently got an iPad and I’m rather fond of the interface. So fond, in fact, that I sort of started wishing my desktop had an application launcher like the iPad. I did a little digging and turned up iPadian. If it’s too off the wall feel free to disregard this tip, but I really think it’s clever. iPadian is a portable app that launches an alternative desktop which looks a lot like the iPad interface. I say looks like the iPad interface because this isn’t an emulator (alas); you can’t run iPad apps and what not. You can run Windows-based apps from it, however, and there is even an iPadian appstore system so you can quickly add open-source apps to your iPadian launcher. Anyways, thought it was neat and figured I’d send you a link to the site and a demo video! Your site rocks!


適用於iPhone的Easy Flashlight Access


I can’t figure out why this feature isn’t built into iOS from the get go, but hey, that’s why we jailbreak right? WeeFlashlight is a jailbreak-only app (you can find it in the BigBoss repository with all the other goodies) that puts a simple toggle in the notifcation bar. No more digging around for an app to turn the flashlight on and off, you just swipe down and turn it on. It’s awesome! Now if only I could find a jailbreak app that would let me double tap a hardware button to turn the flashlight on and off.


Kindle Collection Manager為Windows帶來輕鬆的Kindle Collection創作


Hey guys! So here’s my short problem and solution tip message. Problem: the only official way to put your books into Kindle collections is to use the annoying interface on the Kindle (it’s a huge pain). Solution: Kindle Collection Manager for Windows lets you create collections using your keyboard and monitor instead of the tiny keyboard and rocker switch on the Kindle. It’s so much easier to group your books into collections using the collection manager. The only bad thing I can say about the app is that it’s got a silly little email registration box when you go to download it (I hate stuff like that). Other than the minor annoyance in downloading it though, it’s very handy for manipulating collections without using the Kindle keyboard/interface.
