WaveDeck Voice Messenger Lets You Speak Instead of Type

WaveDeck Voice Messenger app icon

With the addition of Siri, I've learned to rely more on voice and less on text. The only problem I've had with Siri is that sometimes I have to tweak the speech-to-text results for whatever reason — noise, bad connection, who  knows.

An Unofficial Guide to Disneyland Paris

Two of my best childhood memories include driving down the Pacific Coast from Washington State to California to embark on a magical discovery. Every bit as enchanting as I'd hoped, Disneyland was absolutely amazing—except for the seond time when we went on New Years Eve expecting the place to be vacant.

Wannabat is a Home Run on the App Store for Baseball Fans

wannabat app icon

Baseball was one of my favorite sports to play growing up. Then I grew up and with no scholarship in sight, I took to watching it from the stands and the couch. I've also taken to playing baseball games on consoles, but have never been a big fan of them as they're too detailed and take too much time.

DiskHUB Pro is a file downloader and browser that makes downloading anything from the Web, cloud storage or your local desktop a snap. However, the question on my mind when taking the app for a spin was one necessity.

PDF Connoisseur Perfect for Forms, Contracts, File Transfer and More

PDF Connoisseur for iPad

Let me say up front that I detest handling PDFs on mobile devices. Sure, they're easy to muck around with on the desktop and yes, it's easy to view on your mobile devices such as the iPad, but when it comes to getting a signature or exporting a file to a PDF, the desktop reigns supreme.

Brandnew Boy: Brawler + RPG Action = Winning Combo

Brandnew Boy iPhone game

Brandnew Boy is one of the reasons I continue to look through thousands of apps constantly to try and uncover the best. Not all apps have a huge marketing campaign surrounding their launch and some, like this one, tend to burn up the charts based on pure merit.

Buy warpspeed 2 on the App Store

Space fighter apps are extremely fun to play and warpspeed 2 by Borderline Interactive is no different. The fast-paced action along with its visually stunning and equally trippy visuals will have a lot of budding Viper pilots coming back again and again for more action.

Awesome Calendar Syncs with Google Cal and Offers Collaboration Option

Awesome Calendar for iPhone

The amazing aspect about the App Store is that there is always room for competition. Take for instance calendar and list maker apps, there is probably a new addition everyday and just when I think it's a crowded arena, something such as Awesome Calendar pops up and improves on the category.

Bug and Weed Identifier by Spectracide

As a homeowner, I can attest to the problems figuring out how to care for a fledgeling lawn and arachnid infestation after a harsh winter. And now that spring has sprung, I've turned my hours of waiting for the sun to hours of trying to become a professional green thumb and pest controller.
