Attractive to look at, Thinglist suffers badly for being far too basic for the price, despite offering a handy place to store ideas and thoughts.

Weddings are commonly considered as one of the most important and memorable events in many people’s lives. They’re also quite often expensive and can cause a lot of stress. While, unlike other wedding focused apps, Make Your Wedding: Inspiration, Planning, and DIY Projects doesn’t explain how to take out the stressful elements, it does provide plenty of ideas for those who want to add a creative and personal touch to their day.

As the name suggests, the app includes 30 DIY projects, for a wide variety of skill levels, each providing a great and inexpensive solution for an important part of a wedding day. Information is provided on how to create attractive wedding favors and ring cushions, as well as table centerpieces and even jewellery for the bridesmaids.

In each case, things are divided up according to style, making it easy to browse when looking for some inspiration. Rustic Elegance, Soft Vintage, Colorful Whimsy, Breezy Beach and Modern Metallic are the themes covering a wide range of tastes. Everything is laid out attractively, too, as would be expected from an Open Air Publishing app. A mixture of videos and photos show visually how to achieve such things, as well as comprehensive lists and tips on all that’s needed to know. A difficulty rating ensures that no one tries to tackle something out of their skill level.

Rounding off the package is a short section on how to prepare for such DIY tasks. It’s not hugely comprehensive, but it does cover enough detail for most users. Being able to look up individual words within the text means that a glossary is already catered for, as well as breakdowns of measurements in both imperial and metric varieties.

Relatively inexpensive for such an interesting tome, Make Your Wedding: Inspiration, Planning, and DIY Projects should provide a plentiful and attractive supply of inspiration for those who are planning a wedding in 2013 or beyond.

TED Launches For iPhone

Previously only available for the iPad, TED is now available for iPhone and the iPod touch courtesy of this new official app.

TED, for those not already in the know, is a global collection of conferences that focus on new and innovative ideas.

The app allows users to browse and watch TEDTalks, videos ranging from 3 minutes to 18 minutes in length, offering a great bitesized explanation of some very cool ideas from speakers on everything possible from genetics and geopolitics to sculpture and creativity. It’s a great way to learn about something new and get thinking.

The iPhone app has been tailored specifically to the mobile user’s needs with the option to simply listen to TEDTalks rather than watch the videos. TED Radio also exists to stream curated audio 24/7, for whenever the user wants to check in.

Also new to the app is the Bookmarks feature, allowing users to flag and save talks they don’t have time to watch/listen to just yet. It means it’s easy to access again later and with no need to wait for the TEDTalk to download either.

All in all, TED is an interesting way of discovering new things at any time and anywhere.

It’s out now.

Be Inspired by TED

TED (Technology, Entertainment & Design) is a twice-yearly free conference that focuses on spreading ideas. “We’re building … a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired leaders,” writes TED, “and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.”

Now, TED is available on the iPad App Store. The applications supports videos of TEDTalks (18 minute speeches from those with ideas) in high or low resolution, online or offline; as well as a ‘tag’ search facility to make it easy to find specific ideas. Speakers include Al Gore to Jane Goodall to Sir Ken Robinson. And everything’s free – from the download to the watching.

The iPad presents a thrilling new platform for delivering a TED experience,” said June Cohen, Executive Producer of TED Media. “We rethought the user experience to take advantage of the portability, the touchscreen and the focused media time people have when they travel or settle in for an evening. We think TED fans will particularly love the “Inspire me” button, which creates a custom playlist to fill the exact amount of time they have free.” Available now, with or without subtitles.
