Pocket Sized Podcast 142: Podcast in a Picturebook

Subscribe in iTunes

Ronnie revisits the photo managment issue with Loom, thislife, and Picturelife. Scott kind of just sits there and doesn’t do a whole lot. Then Scott and Ronnie talk about some speedo apps (no, not that kind), unit converters, typing utilities, and an Evernote update. John Nemo brings the World’s Shortest Reviewcast with the AirTurn Manos universal tablet mount and iPhone: The Missing Manual 7th edition.
