with the 148Apps Network since March 26, 2009

Graphic designer, grant writer and IT guy in the non-profit sector for 8 years. I am interested in mythic literature, poetry and the place of traditional forms of art in new media. I also tend to compulsively monitor rss feeds of new iphone and mac apps.

Billy is not currently writing for the 148Apps Network.

iConcertCal

iConcertCal

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
iConcertCal seems like a great answer for hometown concert information gathering and an amazing resource for the roadtrip enthusiast. One road trip justifies the purchase, one missed gig that was instead spent sitting at home justifies the purchase. If you like what you get from the desktop app, you'll love having the iPhone version of iConcertCal around.

Boggle

Boggle

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
I was interested to finally see Boggle launch on the App Store and more than ready to try it out. What I found was a good 1.0 game with an interesting approach and great additional game modes, but lacking a lot of the polish that the veteran apps have added along the way.

QuickOffice

QuickOffice

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Quickoffice emulates what we think of as an office suite on a desktop. While you probably won't wish to constantly edit documents on the go, it is definitely an office suite that is robust enough to meet most users' mobile needs.

CozyQuest

CozyQuest

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
CozyQuest is an answer to the desire for traditional RPG action in an MMORPG that is being built from the ground up and provides some of the best developer feedback around. While it needs time before it can completely dominate its space, there's an awful lot that's done right.

Groceries

Groceries

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Groceries is a shopping list app that leans in the simple direction but chooses its features wisely. The process of making a list within its interface is familiar in seconds.

MotionX Dice Plus

MotionX Dice Plus

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
When creating dice you gradually learn what looks best. When something is produced that looks exceptional in motion, it's a great feeling. I can see this being fun for everyone from young children to fandom enthusiasts to grandmothers who'd rather look at their darlings than standard pips on monopoly dice.

Reflexion

Reflexion

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Reflexion by Trileet stands out among a huge group of Breakout clones on the App Store. A few have shaken up the formula with 3-D perspectives and circular paddle paths, but this game takes things a step further.

Chimera

Chimera

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
The attempt at previews in realtime is truly impressive and the filters within Chimera are diverse. The interface could use some work and giving the user a choice on resolution would give casual shooters an option to sacrifice quality for speed. Some of the current limitations stem from the hardware it must employ. Still, this is definitely an application to watch as it reaches maturity.

Ant Hill

Ant Hill

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Ant Hill is an interesting, but limited, little simulation of an ant colony and the area around it. The ants swarm and meander about their environment fluidly while trying to deal with the sadistic actions of a, seemingly bored, observer.

Star Walk

Star Walk

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
When someone new asks to see what an iPhone can do, all of us have a list of apps prepared to wow them. Some of these apps may be useful, some may be beautiful, and some may have changed our lives. Star Walk is a gorgeous, dynamic application that, while it may not be technically useful to some, will tease your eyes skyward on clear, starry nights.

G-Map U.S. West

G-Map U.S. West

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
While on a trip to South by Southwest, I had the chance to use G-Map extensively for the first time. It was a great overall experience that was tempered by a few shortcomings. Thankfully, XRoad has recently updated their application and alleviated several of my complaints.

Flip Disc

Flip Disc

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
After some time with the game, it seems like a good concept that was delivered in a completely wrong way. I couldn't encourage anyone to purchase this game at this stage of its development. There are plenty of other really fun games out there that were made with the iPhone platform in mind.

Mariner Calc

Mariner Calc

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Spreadsheets on the iPhone are always a bit of a compromise. Still, there are those who would like the option to edit and, yes, even create simple spreadsheets from their phone. Mariner Calc is an ambitious effort to remove the boundaries that have been imposed on spreadsheet users.

CardSnap

CardSnap

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
In a couple of the cases I was genuinely surprised how well the software worked. Text that I could barely make out was interpreted perfectly. Conversely, perfectly legible text in standard fonts was not transferred at all.

Cisco Edge Quest 2

Cisco Edge Quest 2

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Cisco Edge Quest 2 is a very short, but well done racing game in which you guide a router along a data stream to insure fast and reliable networks. While the game is a promotional vehicle, the advertising is unobtrusive and the overall experience is good.

Gravulous

Gravulous

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Gravulous is a space themed hybrid of pool and marbles with planets as your playing pieces. However, in the middle of the Newtonian planet-cracking gameplay, a relativistic entity, the Gravulous, is waiting patiently to take advantage of even your smallest mistake.

Route Candle

Route Candle

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Route Candle is kind of like playing golf with fire in a dungeon. Only instead of holes, you light candles, and instead of being a golfer, you're a flame. Oh, and your useful little companions are matches.

Star Guitar

Star Guitar

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Muses don't schedule appointments. They aren't fine with being told to "please hold." If you don't have time for her at the moment, there are plenty of buskers down the street who will. Left your guitar at home? Not her problem. Of course, she might think that your iPhone merits some extra inspiration, that is, if you have Star Guitar.

1Password

1Password

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
If you're on the Mac and perform lots of online financial transactions or manage websites with secure data, I believe 1Password can simplify your life while enhancing your security. Grab the free iphone app, the free desktop trial and give it a try.

Photo FX

Photo FX

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
The Tiffen Company has brought their digital photography filters to the iPhone as Photo FX. Even if you use Photoshop to edit pictures on your computer, Photo FX might be just the thing for a quick tweak on-the-go.

Mint.com

Mint.com

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
As an experience online finance management often leaves consumers with a bad taste in their mouths. Mint.com claims to freshen that experience with an all-in-one, easy to use web interface that combines bank accounts, budget, credit and investments. Could their new iPhone application be just what you're looking for to simplify your mobile finances?
