4 best iPad apps to manage your photo collection

There are so many, in fact, that not all have been able to successfully stay in business, as evidenced by the recent shutdown of the popular photo app Everpix.

To master mobile photo management, explore these high-quality, longstanding choices which should be around for a very long time.

Dropbox

Dropbox has seriously stepped up its game in the photo space. Installing the app the first time will prompt you to automatically backup your photos. It will import any existing images taken as well as future photos for those times when taking pictures with your iPad is the best, if not awkward, option.

A photo album feature exists inside Dropbox where users can create [...]

7 best reasons to use HTML5 for future business apps development

It’s multi-platform

The beauty of web apps is that they can work across numerous operating systems, regardless of whether they're powering a smartphone, tablet or laptop. What this essentially means is that one colleague/customer could be using the app on an iPad, while another checks it out on an Android smartphone (note: this is however providing that both platforms support all the APIs used in your app).

So, what are the advantages of doing so? Besides saving on costly app development (more on that below), it means your app is more likely to support some of the newer devices to come to market, even if they sport a different screen size, resolution and aspect [...]

4 best FaceTime alternatives for the iPad

When looking to connect through video calls, look to these staple apps as essentials to have on your iPad.

Skype

The fact that Skype is used as a verb speaks to its pervasiveness in the video calling space.  Microsoft has been effective at ensuring it is on all major platforms: iOS, Android, and of course its Windows devices.

Skype is especially well done on the iPad, offering easy access to starting and receiving video conversations as well as instant messages. The most recent update gave it a fresher coat of polish that blends well with iOS 7.

Google+ Hangouts

One of the most successful elements of Google's social network had been its Hangouts [...]

Flipboard arrives on Windows 8.1 with Live Tile support

The Windows 8.1 application is now live in the Windows Store and will work on both Windows 8 and RT machines.

As with the firm’s iOS and Android apps, readers will find that the conventional controls remain in place. They can still flip through magazines (both curated and those created by other Flipboard users), subscribe and add content to magazines.

That’s where the familiarity ends however as the new app has been slightly tweaked to suit Windows 8. For example, users now need to swipe up from the bottom of the screen to display action icons like Subscribe, Refresh, Edit and Flip It, while swiping down presents recommended users to follow and magazines [...]

Looks like Google will launch the new Nexus 10 tablet next week

A product page for the device was temporarily listed on the Google Play store earlier this week and the page indicated that the tablet would go on sale on November 21. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Google has since deleted the page from its website.

The story was first spotted by Ubergizmo, although the tech website has since removed its article on the issue.

Little is known about the second-gen Nexus 10 at this time — although a recent leak claimed that the device comes with the same 2560 x 1600 resolution display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU and 3GB of RAM. It is also expected to launch with Android 4.4 Kit Kat, the latest iteration of Android which is now [...]

Wells Fargo has over a million iPad app customers for online banking

NEW YORK – In a keynote address kicking off the TabletBiz conference here, Wells Fargo Executive VP Steve Ellis said tablets, particularly the iPad, have led the bank to think differently about how it provides financial services.

Today Wells Fargo has over 12 million mobile customers and Ellis sees a rapid migration from PCs.

“We have over a million iPad users that use our app for online banking,” said Ellis. (Editor's note: an earlier version of this story incorrectly quoted Ellis as saying these customers used only the iPad for all their banking needs).

At the same time Ellis also notes it’s a mistake to think the future of [...]

Google finally launches education-themed version of Google Play

Announcing the news on its Android Developers blog, the firm confirmed that the app storefront will allow school administrators to bulk order and instantly distribute apps, videos and other educational content to classes and school districts.

Developers will, in turn, able to push their applications to teachers and students by marking their apps for inclusion in Google Play for Education when using the Google Play Developer Console. That said, these developers will have to ensure that their applications are suitable for the US K-12 educational market and will have to wait patiently for educators to approve the app’s inclusion on the app storefront.
