PLANET OF THE APPS: 1ST NOVEMBER 2011

Post categories:

Jon Teamlaverne Jon Teamlaverne | 11:00 UK time, Tuesday, 1 November 2011

Stuart Dredge; king of the apps, swings by with this week's reviews. For this week's news, listen back to Tuesday's show on the iPlayer.

 

Shoebox by 1000memories (iPhone)

This is an app for people with a mouldering box of old family photographs and an iPhone. It helps you use the phone's camera to scan the pics and upload them to a digital locker, while also posting them on Facebook if you like.

 

Zeebox (iPad / mobile web)

This app wants to be your go-to application for social TV, i.e. loafing about on the sofa tweeting. It's part electronic programme guide showing you what's on now and next in the UK, and part social media client - you can see what your friends are watching and saying.

 

Timmy Time HD (iPad)

The latest children's TV series to get the iPad book-app treatment is Timmy Time: the spin-off from Shaun The Sheep. It's a combination of stories, a baa-keyboard with downloadable sheet music, colouring and voice narration from Josie Lawrence.
