    By Jeffery Battersby | 04 April, 2014 08:22

    It took less than 5 minutes of using Word for iPad to have an overwhelming first impression: I hope Word on every platform becomes what Word on the iPad is. Sleek, uncluttered, well organized, and beautiful, Word for iPad is impressive. An app that encompasses everything great about the desktop application, with none of the clutter. If Word for iPad is in your future, it's an app I expect you'll love to use.

    By Brian Beam | 05 February, 2014 19:40

    I spend lots of time listening to music on my iPhone. I don't consider myself an audiophile but I'm always on the lookout for ways to tweak the quality of the audio coming out of my device. The built-in iOS Music app provides quite a few stock equalizer settings to choose from, and I've looked at a few other audio-enhancing music apps, but I can't help thinking that there's something better out there. So I thought I'd give GoodHertz's $3 CanOpener--for Headphones a spin.
