iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad


When people want to just get away from this digital, modern world of ours, there’s no better place to go than the great outdoors. However, doing that usually also forces one to forfeit some of the conveniences of our digital, modern world. With Columbia Sportswear’s new GPS PAL app though, that does not have to be the case.

GPS PAL is designed to enhance one’s outdoor experience through its plethora of features. Users can keep records of their journeys through geotagged text, videos and photos. This user-created media can then be uploaded online to all sorts of websites and social networks. Users can also create and store routes along with their distance and elevation as well as set GPS markers at their favorite spots. Basically, the app is a living journal of one’s outdoor adventures.

Be one with nature while still being in the 21st century. GPS PAL is available now for free on the App Store.

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: IDEAL MOTIVATION :: Read Review »

Good weather season is here and, along with that, the urge to look good and get in shape for it. One such way is through new workout app Pushing Weight.

Pushing Weight is designed for beginners to intermediate levels and dispenses with teaching users how to do relevant moves, instead focusing on providing a means to log and plan workouts.

Essentially, it means that the user can track and visualize their workout patterns, working out what works best for them. Training frequently rewards the user with a streak for each session they complete, represented by charge bars that fill up. It's a neat touch that helps users check at a glance what they need to work on to keep those bars full.

For those in need of an easy way of tracking their workout routines, Pushing Weight is an ideal and easy to use solution.

It's out now, priced at $2.99.

Keep Watch On Nearby Boats With Boat Beacon

Posted by Jennifer Allen on March 20th, 2012
+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch

Boat Beacon - AIS Marine Navigation has recently been released on the App Store and for seafarers, this is the perfect app to pick up.

The app offers a form of tracking that, like an AIS transponder, enables users to see each other and their boats out at sea. Using Boat Beacon maps and global AIS systems like AIS Hub, Marine Traffic and Shipfinder, users can keep watch of what's going on around them without any need for external AIS transponder equipment.

While it's not a transponder so users won't be visible to other ships on their AIS systems, Boat Beacon - AIS Marine Navigation is an ideal backup plus it has the added benefit of being usable by friends and family to check that all is well at sea. There's even Ship to Ship instant messaging through the app.

A specialist app for sure, Boat Beacon - AIS Marine Navigation is worth checking out for any seafarers out there that want some extra visibility.

Monitor Gas Usage, Expenses and More with Gas Logs

Posted by Rob Rich on February 17th, 2012

Now I'll admit that I don't do much driving nowadays because I use mass transit (i.e. the subway), but I did drive a lot once upon a time. And it was quite the pain to deal with all of the extraneous annoyances like traffic, insurance, and gas. Guess which of those problems Gas Logs addresses?

The latest app from JAS Appications allows users to track their mileage, their spending, etc... All manner of values can be adjusted to fit a user's region, including gallons/liters, and a number of different currencies. Of course, it just wouldn't be a JAS Applications app if it didn't also include a super-useful GPS feature. Which it does. Yup, as expected Gas Logs can do all this in addition to finding nearby gas stations by using the iOS device's built-in GPS.

Again, someone like myself who doesn't even own a car won't have much use for it but there are billions of people out there who drive, and at least millions who own an iPhone. Chances are good that there's a decent market for something like this.

App Store Bargain Hunting From AppZapp

Posted by Jennifer Allen on August 18th, 2011

Back when the App Store was a new and shiny invention, I remember being able to browse the entire contents of the store within the space of an hour at most. These days however, it would take so long to browse the store that more apps would have been added by the time anyone got to the end. While we at 148apps can help iOS owners keep up to date with all the best and most interesting apps out there, even we can miss out on a hidden gem or forgotten bargain. This is precisely where AppZapp enters the picture.

AppZapp promises to be the Bargain Guide for the App Store and a quick glance will confirm that for all. AppZapp keeps track of all the price drops going on at any one time then lists them in appropriately organised lists for easy consultation.

The Live Stream is of particular interest offering a whole bunch of apps that have had their price adjusted. The difference here is that the Stream keeps track of what other users of AppZapp have been downloading at the current time forming an ideal way of seeing exactly what's popular at any given time. The Top List offers a similar facility along with the option to view the App Store charts easily without having to delve into the App Store app. Sales and Now Free sections supply apps in order of when the price dropped. There's even an AppZapp news section that informs users of the best apps out there that have recently gone down in price.

AppZapp has the potential to save its users a heck of a lot of money which is pretty impressive stuff for such an inexpensive app. It's free for iPhone users while a mere $0.99 for a HD iPad version. Users can choose to pay $1.99 to remove ads if they so wish. There's also the option to pay $0.99 for a Push Service Notification system.

However readers of 148apps don't have to worry about this as we have an exclusive code to gain that for free! All users have to do is go to Settings and Coupon Code then simply enter 148apps to gain the service for free!

Surely a perfect reason to give AppZapp a try, right?
