Google Drive mini Review for Desktop

The reason why Google Drive will succeed is its instant ties with the rest of Google's heavily branded set of services. That's all I really should have to say in this review, as all Google's web-based applications end up powering through with the brand power of Google (with a few choice examples of apps going the way of the appasaurus rex.)

It's time to make the opening of ZIP files easy, finally, on the the iOS platform for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. This application takes files that have been compressed with the .ZIP file extension and opens them up for you - but more than that, it's able to show you what's inside without you having to run the files in other applications.

Pinterest for iPhone Review

As the sharing environment and website known as Pinterest gain heavy steam in the art and design community around the world, it's only natural that the developers behind this already massively successful platform would create a mobile app. It's the iPhone 4S we're taking a look at Pinterest's version 1.4.2 app with, and it's the iPhone that this app is made for. What you'll find is that not only do you have most of the abilities you've got in the web browser version of this app at your disposal, the fact that you've got Pinterest in your hand rather than on your computer screen makes it more entertaining than ever before - and that's saying something, Pinterest is addicting!

QuickShot with Dropbox for iPhone Review

QuickShot with Dropbox for iPhone Review

The app you're about to see a very brief review of requires little introduction and only a small explanation as it's only got a couple of functions, and it does them well. This app is made to do three things: capture video, capture photos, and upload media to Dropbox. This app does this uploading function in a unique manner as we've seen no application work with Dropbox in the background as effectively or in as perfectly simple a manner as we're seeing here - it just works!
