iPad as Cash register, best combination!

Whoever that have thought of this idea of making iPad your Cash Register has the million dollar idea. iPad has large enough screen, very sensitive touch screen plus fast processor. All this actually adds up to be a very good Cash Register as you can touch on the “button” which are the pricing, then open up cash register.

Cash Register System such as Revel Systems has done a great job of implementing that.

Check out the video on how iPad can be used as a iPad Cash Register:

Of course, Apple pushed Mac App Store as a Software Update on the OS Level, so you will need to do a reboot after installation.

After you are done, I’m sure you will be spending hours in the store, looking for good free apps, and great paid apps yeah? Currently Angry Birds is already the top paid App in Mac App Store.

The top free app on Mac App Store is Twitter currently. It looks and feel exactly like Tweetie,  so you all will be able to download and install it now with ease.

I’m able to quickly download games, twitter and many other apps on it and it is really the easiest way to install App on Mac. And Honestly, it will be the easiest way to spend lots of money on them!

There are quite a large collection of apps/software in there, like Evernote, Apple’s iWorks and iLife, lots of games that we are very familiar, for eg Flight Control HD, Tori Tori and Angry Birds.

I’m sure most of you iPhone users have been using WhatApp as your replacement for SMS, as it free, and you can send text to your friends regardless where, and only use up your data usage, now you can call your friends worldwide and just use data!

Viber is different, there ain’t much you need to do, just download the app, enter your phone number, receive a sms from them, key in the pass code and you can start calling your friends for free!

Tactile D-Pad for iPhone and iPad

One main issue with iPhone and iPad gaming is that the lack of physical buttons, so playing games that requires D-Pads or pushing of buttons is weird as most iPhone/iPad games now uses virtual D-Pads and buttons. It makes the games harder to play as the buttons and virtual d-pad are not as ease to use, especially when you need to look at the d-pad to make the move rather than the screen play itself.

Japan as always come out with very creative stuff, now they have come out with this Stick-on Tactile D-Pad and Buttons for iPhone and iPad! You can now stick them onto your iPhone/iPad screen so you can have a “Physical” buttons and D-Pad, and you can enjoy your gaming on iPhone or iPad even more! You can buy the stick on buttons from Japan at around 630yen which is around USD$7.80 or around Singapore Dollar $10.

We have no idea how many times you can pull out and stick back the stick on buttons, mostly they can last for at least a few stick-on else, it will be $10 per game, which is totally not worth it.
