Hands On: Edjing Pro 1.0.9 (iOS)

05/27, 7:35am

DJs have been mixing their magic on turntables and large, expensive basement studio setups for decades at this point, bringing us incredible mashups and original songs. However, there's no reason that DJs should be chained to heavy, expensive equipment when a perfectly viable resource sits within their hands. Today we checked out Edjing Pro, a professional DJ mixing tool for the iPad and iPhone.

Living with: Drafts 4 (iOS)

05/27, 7:35am

Woke up one morning -- dah da dah duh -- with an entire short play in my head. As you do. I would like to tell you that I picked up my iPad, opened Drafts 4 and wrote the whole thing in one go because that is what I should have done. Instead, as much of a fan of Drafts on iOS as I am, I tried writing it in Final Draft instead.

Hands On: iKlip Grip

05/26, 5:28pm

While IK Multimedia is perhaps better known for the audio software it creates, the past few years has seen the company growing more and more into the mobile accessory space. Products like the iRig, iRig Mic HD, and iLoud have given the company a reputation for creating products that are not only well built, but also easy to use. Most recently, the company has announced the launch of the iKlip Grip, a new multifunction product aimed towards mobile photographers.

Hands On: Kindo 1.0.1 (iOS)

05/26, 4:30pm

Kindo by Space Bears is a two player board game where the players take over spaces in an attempt to capture the King of their opponent. The developers describe it as a "fresh new medieval board game", which sounds odd; it's a pretty good description. The style of the design is fairly simple and we could see it in the same category as Checkers, Go, or most of all Othello. The mechanics are certainly interesting, and it includes all the game modes one could ever want from a board game app. We're still not sure how we feel about the choices of colors in the various themes though.

Hands On: Movie Pass 2.0.7 (iOS, Android)

05/26, 3:24pm

MoviePass is a subscription service for people who go out to the movies often. The member uses an app to "check into" a movie at a nearby theater, and then uses a special card to pay for the ticket. The directions say the number of movies a member can see through MoviePass is "unlimited," but what they really mean by that is there aren't any blackout dates. In reality, there are a number of restrictions, but they're not onerous. For people who find themselves going out to the movies often, this has the potential of being a pretty good deal.

Hands On: Monodraw 1.0 (OS X)

05/26, 1:57pm

You're not going to need this often but let's work it out. What Monodraw 1.0 does it let you produce ASCII art – and already if you're blinking at that, you're not the market for this – like those images you've seen that are made up entirely of letters. They used to be done on typewriters because we knew no better, they were then done on computers because we were young. The makers of Monodraw want you to do ASCII art because it will last forever. They're right.
