Apps: Written iPad App Review
Apps is an application available for all iOS devices; iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. The goal of the app is to provide you with all the app news you need, in a convenient iOS application. The application even has a free and paid genre selection so you can look up the best apps right from your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. Apps is primarily a news application and takes it’s news from a wide variety of sources. These sources include Gizmodo, TechCrunch, The Verge, and Cult of Mac. These are very high profile sites, so you are guaranteed great content. The app also is in Russian, so if you’re a Russian reader, this may be the perfect application news app for you.
Being a news application, the most important thing to have is content. As I mentioned above, the app has several popular sites to provide this content. The articles within this app are very well written and should keep you up-to-date on all the mobile news. I suspect that the developer will continually add new sites to expand the amount of content that is available within the app.
The format and design of the application is very well thought out. The news articles are spread out on the screen in a way that is easy to navigate through them. Apps even has a way to sort different articles. The articles can be sorted into Recent, Popular, and Discussed. You can even write and publish articles to Apps with an additional add-on app available by the same developers. The navigation between the pages is smart too. The tabs at the bottom redirect you to different pages within the app. The application has the news section, an app listing section, a search section, and a favorites section. The search section let’s you search for apps and reviews while looking at a playful telescope animation.
The favorites section is also useful, and let’s you favorite your most loved articles or apps so you can be updated on all the news surrounding your app. Or you can use it to just check on an article later. The application also has a social aspect where you can like or comment on articles. This brings more people together to have discussions within the application.
Overall, Apps has the potential to be a valuable resource to anyone that likes reading about apps and the mobile world. With top tier content providers, the articles are excellent. The design is flawless and makes the app simple to navigate. The application even comes in Russian to provide a useful localization if you don’t speak English. In total, this app has a lot of potential.
Apps is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
