Helps me, so I never have a problem again.
I went through several RSS reader apps before settling on NewsRob. Not only does it seamlessly sync with my Google Reader (folders and all!), it has the ability to open links within the application, so I can go to mobile sites and leave comments instead of always needing to open the full browser and skip about. It's a great option to have.
This one really is just for fun. The interface is almost like an old-fashioned toy camera, and lets you play with special effects like scratch and vignette. It's more of a supplement to your stock camera app than, a replacement, but fun to have on board.
Oh, this one is fun! It's got a "normal" setting for you to use if you choose, but the whole point of this app is to really jazz up your photos. Turn your subject into a 4-part Warhol painting, or take a Polaroid with a vintage film look (sadly, it won't PRINT the Polaroid). You can play with color filters and photo sizes, but this one may not be for the serious photographer
It’s just an innocuous blue button on your homescreen, but hit it at the right time and you’ll be the life of the party. Inspired by the “sad trombone” Internet meme (at www.sadtrombone.com, of course), this app makes the pathetic “mwah mwah mwaaaaah” noise right when you need it. Someone tripped and fell? Got a wrong answer at trivia? Shot down by a cute guy at a bar? Sad Trombone is there to make you feel...well... even worse.
Click along for a series of quotes from renowned NFL coach Mike Ditka, and instantly share them on Twitter, Facebook, and other social sites. You just have to imagine the clipped Chicago accent.
Google Translate will turn "I love you" into "Je t'aime" or "Te quiero" (or is it te amo?) or a number of other languages. There is voice input that is fun to try but doesn't always work, so I wouldn't count on it in an important situation. I need to explore more - it seems like if you write basic, simple sentences you will get a decent translation. Need to play with this to see how good translation is with more complicated sentences or phrases.
I just zoomed from the Jersey Shore to the Westside of LA to Santa Fe, New Mexico. And by the way, I flew over the Asbury Park Boardwalk, the ferris wheel on the Santa Monica Pier, and the art galleries on Canyon Road. Get a birds'-eye view of anywhere in the world, and even find businesses in the area by doing a search such as "coffee shops in Paris".
I popped open the Dalai Lama Quotes app and read: "Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions." Yesterday's quote? "In the practice of tolerance, one's enemy is the best teacher." And tomorrow? "If you must be selfish, then be wise and not narrow-minded in your selfishness." Okay, I'm addicted. I mean, in an unattached way.
