Continuing on from last week’s episode about iOS podcast client apps, Vic Hudson of App Story Podcast loves Downcast, Ronnie loves Castro, and Scott loves and hates the Evernote iOS app. Ok, Evernote’s not a podcast app. But Scott still wants to talk about the lack of text color formatting as well as the great business card scanner in Evernote anyway. Also Ronnie and Vic talk about some of their podcast listening habits, and John Nemo refuels your mojo with the Mojo Refuel Aqua S battery case in World’s Shortest Reviewcast.
Unread is a really nice iOS RSS reading app developed by Jared Sinclair. Jared joins Ronnie and Scott to talk about Unread, the development process behind it, why he developed it, and what it offers users for optimal RSS feed article reading on iOS. John Nemo hears it all with SteelSeries headphones in World’s Shortest Reviewcast.
iOS 7.1 is new. CarPlay is… sort of new. Ronnie and Scott talk shift keys, 7.1 stability, and what chance CarPlay might have in the automotive industry. John Nemo comes up with the world’s weirdest iPhone case in the World’s Shortest Reviewcast.
Ben Alexander of Fiat Lux podcasting syndicate joins Scott and Peter to talk about Fiat Lux, iPhones, podcasting, and more. John Nemo of World’s Shortest Reviewcast talks about short cables for iOS devices.
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.
Peter has an IFTTT, or maybe it has him. Scott and Peter discuss the comings and goings of Peter Nikolaidis and the lights that go on and off and don’t go on and off thanks to the IFTTT iOS app. John Nemo has the power to be portable with the StarTech Portable Wireless N WiFi Router for iPad.
Retinally pleasing iPad minis are out, but they are hard to get. Everpix is dead, and Ronnie is searching for its successor. Scott disagrees with things he heard on the Talk Show about iOS 7 on older iOS devices. We clarify last time’s rant slightly, and Scott teaches Ronnie and our friend Timothy Gregoire how iPhone app icon management is done.
Allister Jenks is a Kiwi geek with a love for Apple products. Scott and Allister talk briefly about last week’s Apple event which brought new iPads and new iLife and iWork iOS apps. Then Allister gives his thoughts on his iPad use versus his iPhone use. John Nemo brings us the World’s Shortest Reviewcast with cases of cases.
Scott and Peter speak with special guest cryptographer and security expert Bruce Schneier about Touch ID, biometrics, and general mobile phone security and privacy issues. Bruce is an outstanding speaker on these topics – you don’t want to miss this. John Nemo puts a charge in World’s Shortest Reviewcast with ChargeOnTheGo.
I’m sorry, but this is a bit of a rant cast. Ronnie rants about the how messed up his attempts to buy an iPhone 5s were. Scott rants about the photo and video problem in the iOS world, and then follows that up with rants about Evernote and the iOS 7 app switcher. Also, an App Folder on Boinx PhotoPresenter. Can’t stand your iPad? John Nemo can, in World’s Shortest Reviewcast, with one iPad case and one iPad stand.
