Ashes — Make your iPad burn with Fever°

Fever is well regarded as the best way to manage RSS, allowing you to sift through stories instead of individual articles on individual sites. However, it’s crutch was that it didn’t have a native iPhone or iPad client, forcing many to use Google Reader with a client like Reeder. I think Fever° has achieved that user base that has prompted the creation of its first third party native iPad app — Ashes. Bringing the first native iPad app built on...

LivePitch: Pixel Love for the World Cup

This is an app you might have imagined, but never thought would be a reality in this day.

Movies Now HD dressed up pretty

It’s the app that started it all. Movies Now is the fantastically designed iPhone app that allows you to browse movies and buy tickets, skipping the queue altogether.

Consume – an iPad app by Bjango

Bjango is up to some more brilliant stuff. Thought I had posted this, apparently not. Better late than never, considering how chewable this app looks. Consume is a powerful and versatile usage monitor for your mobile phone, broadband, tolls, deliveries, rewards cards and more. Keep track of all your account balances and quotas to ensure you don’t incur any additional costs. Consume supports over 100 providers from 15 countries, including AT&T, O2, Rogers, Fido, T-Mobile, Vodafone and Orange. It’s still...
