Tweetbot (for both iPhone and iPad)
When I first saw I thought it was a little industrial-feeling, but I've come to discover it's one of the purest, most essentially designed communication clients around. I can't go back to Twitter's first-party apps after this.
I can't wait for Tweetbot for Mac. The Mac clients are seriously lacking and need some Tapbots love.
This is by far my favorite app.
Same here, I've got buckets of love for Tweetbot.
The best RSS client for iOS. Simple and intuitive interface sets the standard for all other RSS apps.
Especially on the iPad.
I keep a couple of feeds in folders and all of the UI interactions are fantastic.
i seriously don't know how i'd ever keep up on the ever-growing rss feed without this app, and i combine it with pocket for any longer reads and for archiving purposes.
Reeder is great, but recently I´ve using Mr. Reader and I am liking it.
I wish it didn't require Google reader.
Ah but that's the genius behind it, everything syncs up so nicely, especially with multiple devices. :D
Instapaper. This one gets me through daily train rides - reading up on articles I've saved over the past few days, weeks, whatever.
Days, weeks... months perhaps; or, in my case, as I've recently discovered, early 2009.
My reading list goes back to 2009. That is insane. Instapaper is making me slowly slide into Second Inbox Guilt Disorder. This must not happen, ever.
Instagram. I know photo-sharing apps existed before it, and I even used some of them. But I can't imagine using anything else now. It works because it basically does one thing, and does it really well (two things, I suppose, if you count the filters, though they could probably drop them and not lose a single user).
It's probably my most used app after Facebook and Twitter.
Beats the pants off any other 'read later' app. The aesthetic of the app and website are excellent not to mention it's free.
I prefer Instapaper but Read it Later has a beautiful app now.
If you can't live without push email, this isn't the client for you (at least not yet -- they're working on it!). But if you can do without push and you're a Gmail addic, this might well be probably the best mobile email experience on any platform.
i want to love this app, i didn't realize how important push email was to me until i tried using Sparrow as my daily driver. and I understand why it's not there (not Sparrow's fault) and it's one of those things that irks me about iOS. It's THE best email app for the way i want to attack my inboxes, the ONLY feature it needs is that push.
I find it difficult to wait for the client to sync when i have been away from the inbox for any length of time, Mail downloads the messages in the background so they're already there when I go to read a backlog, and the Gmail iOS app doesn't have to sync at all, of course since it's just loading a webview in an iOS frame. Do you not have an issue with the time it takes for the app to manually update? I also wish that it would show unread message count on labels, I filter lots of email based on rules, but I still want to know when something is sitting there unread. I have raised these concerns with the developer, just thought I'd share my thoughts here as well, see if anyone else is experiencing the same issues, or I'm just a jerk.
Another problem I have with Sparrow on iOS as well as on the Mac version is that it doesn't do a very good job of keeping a correct count on the unread messages per label. I get a LOT of email from automated systems for work, and it is filtered into various categories because I want that information but I don't want it to be in my Inbox and pinging my phone every few minutes. I don't see how Sparrow enables me to be more efficient with handling my email when it's not an accurate representation of the total state of my email account. Am I not using it correctly? I'd really love to hear some thoughts here.
I am patiently waiting for the day they release the iPad version. I can pay in Australian Beer if that would motivate :)
Best email experience. 'Nuff said.
It's funny that it helped me realize how good life is *without* push email. That allows me to focus on what I'm doing and save battery.
I just hope it had Outlook Exchange support for my office mail so I can do away with the stock Mail app.
This app makes you want more to do just so you can use it.
Be sure to find all the easter eggs for new color schemes!
I've found the Tweetbot and the one for following their team on twitter. Any others I should know about?
There is one called nightowl for clearing a task in the middle of the night, not sure of the actual rules around it.
There is also one once you clear over 100 tasks I think? I just made a bunch of single letter tasks and swiped them away to reach it.
There is one if you have Path installed as well.
I agree wholeheartedly. I literally add/complete stuff just to see the animations!
This app is my favorite way to edit photos before i post them to Instagram, and then off to Facebook and Twitter. My favorite filter is the food filter, and I use it for almost all my food photos I post.
Tried VSCO Cam? I love it, and has replaced camera+ for me.
Looking to try mattebox too; an re-do for that one is coming soon too!
I haven't, but I'll check it out!
This post has been removed.
Enjoyed taking pictures with my 4S when I was visiting places. Separating focus and exposure has been a big deal for me!
Camera Awesome is a good alternative if you prefer a free app
yeah.. i also like that feature especially during trips to different places..Perfect for different scene/views.
Flipboard - I don't often read the newspaper, but when I do, I read the SF Chronicle's feed through Flipboard.
The problem with Flipboard is it looks extremely nice but does a poor job at curating/aggregating. Zite can learn from my preferences and deliver a much better news curation, in my experience. Those to should merge.
flipboard is great. I use it daily.
Can't you do all this (and more) in iPhoto for iOS?
snap seed does it a thousand times better, and faster
I prefer Alien Blue on my iPhone to reddit on my computer.
How does this compare to Stitcher? I've been loving Stitcher for the past 6 months or so realizing that I didn't have to sync and manually update my iPhone every time I wanted to listen to new podcasts.
Well, Stitcher is more focused on being a "radio aggregator", while Instacast is a clean-cut "podcatcher" app. My deduction from using Stitcher (albeit for a much shorter while than Instacast) was that 1) it's more of a mix-'n-match service for radio and 2) the apps are just not as well done as Instacast.
Instacast is a superb and, in my opinion, unmatched replacement for the iTunes/iOS podcast system. Stitcher has a different focus - still an interesting concept, but not the same (and definitely not for me).
It's worth trying Instacast - but only if you're comfortable spending those few bucks on something that might not work for you, personally.
