New App Grapeful Looks to Help iOS Users with the Delicate Art of Selecting Wine

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Grapeful is a new universal app that looks to be a portable wine database for iOS users – kind of a “sommelier in your pocket.”

The app can do things like suggest a wine based on inputted meal or food, deliver wine facts, explain where to get a specific type, and even pair wine to cheese for a great culinary experience. An upcoming update promises to up the “surprise” functionality by allowing the user to exclude specific colors and allowing the app to suggest one that might not be selected otherwise.

Grapeful is available for free on the App Store.

New Roxio Mediabook App Helps Turn Content into Feature-Rich Media Books

iPad Only App - Designed for iPad

Corel Inc. has released an app called Roxio MediaBooks, and it aims to please. The app has the ability to compile images, videos, text, and audio to create and share digital storyboards – multimedia ebooks, if you will.

The creation process promises to be easy with professional templates available, and gives the user a large amount of control over the creative process. The applications are endless: scrapbooking, social interactions, even business publications can be crafted with the app. Creations can be shared to iBooks as well.

The basic app is free, and there is advanced functionality (stuff like unlimited pages, filters, video trimming, and more) available via in-app purchase for $4.99.

Additionally, the app will be offering the advanced functionality free until March 31. As noted previously, Roxio MediaBooks is currently available for free on the App Store.

Child-friendly apps are always of a premium, and games that help shape admirable behavior are even more desireable. Development house If You Can is introducing a new app called IF …, which looks to help kids get a hold of that which is sometimes hard to control: their emotions.

The process is framed as a role-playing adventure. Through various interactions in different social situations, the player gets to explore responses to said situations. The first chapter is free, and the developer promises more levels are on the way. IF … promises nice graphics, surprises, and simple sequences.

IF … is currently available for free in the App Store.


The design team behind the new Decide Now decisions-making app is running a contest to try and find the most interesting and creative ideas to be added to their app. What’s in it for you? Well, a pretty nice Bluetooth headset or one of two iPhone 4 cases, is what. All you need do is give them a neat idea or suggestion, your honest and creative feedback on the app itself and the best three ideas will win the prizes.

Decide Now is an app for those who can’t seem to make up their minds. I’m sure I’m not the only one who will instantly think of Office Space’s “Jump to Conclusions” mat as the possible inspiration for this app. But the idea makes sense, and I know there are probably a couple times that I’d rather someone decide for me instead of having to think about all the options in a given situation.

What it offers is 10 predefined wheel templates for varying situations. Also, you can create your own custom options, so if you want it to decide what movie you should see, simply enter in each of the movies, and spin the wheel. Leaving it to chance or even letting Decide Now narrow down your choices for any situations might relieve you of any worry or stress associated with tough choices. Although, obviously this is for entertainment purposes — please people, don’t spin this thing for any major life-choices.

The description boasts of different color design options and that the graphics are retina display quality, so this app should be easy on the eyes. Try it out, and if you think you have a brilliant idea on how to improve it, head over to the contest page website and enter the contest. Not only will you help make the app better, but you could be walking away with a sweet new case or better still, bluetooth headset. The contest started September 28th, and runs until October 10th! Good luck!
