Verizon recently announced plans for an iPad application that will give Fios subscribers the ability to watch live television on their iPads. I don’t know about you but, I think that is by far one of the best app ideas yet.
S.N.A.P. is a free iPhone/iOS app that gives you a quick glance at your facebook privacy settings and grades it in a much more intuitive and understandable manner than even the social network itself does. Hopefully facebook takes a tip from this app and at least incorporates the simpler grading view. Via engadget.
Dazed & Confused just released their iPhone and iPad app. The app is free, searchable, and can be downloaded for offline reading. It contains the full issue, however it’s a little hard to navigate on the phone.
Flipboard is a “social magazine” that feeds off of your facebook, and twitter, consistently updating content with what your peers like and link to. If you’re not too much into social networking or have really lame friends, no worries, the app also let’s you pick from Flipboard’s own selection of deemed important resources.
This is a must have for the ADD set.

The leak in your hometown. Good stuff.
““the leak in your home town” is an iPhone app that lets users see the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill whenever they see a BP logo. A user simply launches the app and aims their iPhone’s camera at the nearest BP logo. What the user sees is one of the broken BP pipes coming out of the BP logo, and out of the pipe comes the oil, pluming upward.”

This is a beauty on the iPad too. Photography at its finest.

Maarten Baas‘s iPhone app based is based on his Real Time project where the artist painted time in real time. Check out the video after the jump to see it in action and understand it a bit more. Then, when you’re ready download it here.
The Motion X GPS app for iPad will be available shortly, showing off a larger, more usable footprint of data from the iPhone version. Gives me some interesting excuses for in-vehicle mounting. The existing version is pretty sweet- I’ve used it to log map routes by bike and car, and the data export can be used to geotag photos. It’s not a turn-by-turn navigation solution, but is a pretty robust tracking app for the data hound in me.
You are probably familar with Eboy, or have at least seen their work, Anyway, you have to check out this soon-to-be-available game for the iPhone, FixPix. The goal is to align the images to complete the image, Tetris on a whole nutha level.
Skipping past the news (or, non-news) of the weekend’s technology-world-a-tittering over reports of a new iPhone, I was digging around this morning for some fun photo apps and came across a reduced price on the Pano app. I’ve always been into true panoramic photography, even going so far as to rent some of the real deal, rotating-lens variety of cameras. So if you can’t justify carrying around a Linhoff, Horseman, or even the Lomo Horizon, at least there’s an app to get you wet. To quote RoboCop, “I’d buy that for a dollar!” (I stitched together the photo above by taking six portrait photos from left to right, covering a three block span of buildings. Another random test shot after the jump.)
Everyone will be spouting about all the fun apps and entertainment consumables for the iPad, but there are plenty of serious apps that push it beyond being yet another couch potato device. If you get your hands on one, here are a few that can help make it pay for itself…
Inner Fence’s Credit Card Terminal for iPad makes sure you get paid:
Webex has an app that handles meeting shares:
Mixr is a professional DJ app in that fits in your lap. The app features cross-fading, equalizing, cue, drang & drop tracks, and so much more. You’re basically removing the two laptops between your ipods from your DJ gear. It works like it looks, using the touch screen you can mix the tracks and scratch, pretty straight forward.
