iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

We're only a few weeks away from federal taxes being due but I can bet there are a whole lot of people out there who haven't even looked at their W2s yet. If you're in the procrastination boat then don't panic, as a new mobile version of CompleteTax is here to help you fill out all your paperwork and get your taxes filed before the IRS decides to take notice and pay special attention to you.

The app allows anyone who's filing a 1040EZ form to fill out all their info on their phone and send it in without hassle. The program asks basic information, as well as pertinent financial info and then puts all the numbers in the right boxes. It's fast, it's simple and you can go on with your life.

Just take note that the app is only built for those file a 1040EZ, if you have a more complex tax situation or plan to itemize your deductions then you'd best find a more thorough solution. No matter what your method you'd better get on it, you really should be finishing your taxes instead of reading this article. Get to work!

C-Span debuts on App Store - Free

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

C-SPAN, the Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network which broadcasts coverage of government proceedings and public affairs programming, has launched its first application (free) bringing a number of these services to the iPhone and iPod Touch. These services are:

C-SPAN Radio
C-SPAN: Live coverage of House of Representatives
C-SPAN 2: Live coverage of Senate

The application is light and quick to load on an iPhone 3G, but there is a distinct lack of iPhone integration and features commonly seen in the majority of third party applications - the design is lacking a certain something. There is no live video, but the radio stream quality is excellent. It also works over 3G.

We'll keep you posted as updates for this long-awaited application arrive, until then you can download it for free by visiting its App Store page here: http://bit.ly/4IRa0d
