Evernote bought Skitch and put it free on Mac App Store

This is one of the greatest news for Mac for far for the month. I love both Evernote and Skitch, and now Skitch is free on Mac App Store. How cool is that man.

Skitch is a easiest Screen shot taking App on Mac, not only that is also the easiest app to help you edit and share the screen shot! With just 1 click, you can take screen shot, with another few clicks, you can edit and upload the photo up to your server or skitch server. A very neat software which I will highly recommend any Mac users.

Here’s 60 Seconds about Skitch Video:

The ever better news is that although Evernote, my favorite note-taking app, have bought Skitch, but they will be keeping Skitch as a separate Mac App, and is free! So be sure to download the Skitch App from Mac App Store now!

Girl with an iPad head walking down the street [Video]

iPad Head Girl on New York Street

What will be your reaction when you see an iPad head girl walking down the street? I would be surprised like the guys in the video. Of course, this is Cosmo for guy’s publicity, as they launch their new iPad App. You will realize it at the end of the video, where a guy sat infront of the lady and browsed the magazine app on her face.

What is cool is that the girl is actually holding a camera inside her purse, which live feed to a pair of video glasses that she was wearing, enabling her to walk without issue. Else I’m sure she will be banging to lamp posts or trees. Pretty neat idea. Do check out the video.


iCloud Web App on Beta now! [Video]

iCloud.com now on Beta!

Apple announced a new cloud service – iCloud, which will allow iOS and Mac users to be able to share, sync and upload files to iCloud.com. This service will not be just a cloud storage service like dropbox or box.net. But it will be integrated down to OS level on iOS devices to ensure a smooth syncing experience.

But Apple did not stop there, Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Find my iPhone and iWorks will have their own respective Web Apps. I have just tried some of them for awhile, and man I tell you it is very cool. Honestly, I am not able to tell this is web app, it feels and looks just like iPad Apps. I am really amazed by how Apple developed their web app. Don’t believe? Check out this video below:

Facebook for iPad leaked!

One of the most important App that is still missing on iPad till today is Facebook App. Currently, we can only get Facebook for iPhone/iPod Touch, but there is no native app for iPad. Although u can say that you will still have a very nice browsing experience on mobile Safari on iPad, but nothing can beat the customization and viewing experience on an native App.

Facebook for iPad is finally coming to App Store soon?

MG Siegler from TechCrunch actually found out that Facebook for iPad might be launch very soon, but I kid you not, an executable Facebook for iPad is already on your Facebook App for iPhone! So if that’s the case, then it might be a universe app for Facebook.

Overall the view of the App seems very clean and cool, I already love the UI of the App even before using. Let’s hope that we won’t have to wait too long for it to be launch, I’m kind of tired of using 3rd party apps which don’t really run as good as the one that I got on my iPhone.

More pictures below, or you can visit TechCrunch for all the screenshot of the app.
