iPad App Reviews: All next week on sjhoward.co.uk

Warning: This post was published more than 6 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 6 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

The iPad 2 was released in the UK a couple of weeks ago, and caused quite a stir. Just a week or so beforehand, I’d bought an original iPad at a bargain price, and I’ve been loving it ever since. I haven’t coveted the iPad 2 at all – the original one is perfect for my needs.

So, with the number of iPads increasing, I thought it would be nice to review some of the Apps I’ve loaded onto my device, to help new owners decide what they want.

Hence, all next week on sjhoward.co.uk, I’ll be doing a series of App Reviews – one a day, published at midday.

If you’ve read my reviews in the past, you’ll be familiar with the fact that I’m not a great reviewer, and tend to ramble more than a bit without ever really reaching a conclusion. I don’t think it’s ruining the blogging magic too much to say that this series of five reviews is already drafted, and fits in with that pretext pretty well.

The first App coming before me for judgement is News International’s “The Times” iPad App.

Will I like it? Will I hate it? The suspense is killing me!

Find out on Monday!

We, http://www.BragItUp.com, have just released an iPhone and browser app called the Amazon Discount Finder.

I hope that it will be suitable for your readers.

The app is available for iPhones or for your computer’s toolbar (alternatively you can just use the one on our homepage). It lets you search Amazon by percentage discount (something that you cannot do on the Amazon website) so you are guaranteed of finding the best bargains without having to trawl through the 1000’s of search results.

Here are the relevant links:

iPhone – http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/amazon-discount-finder/id436344250?mt=8&ls=1

Browser – http://apps.conduit.com/BragItUp-Amazon_Deal_Widget?appid=b2feca1e-40b2-48d6-947e-62b782dc4499

Try it on our homepage – http://www.BragItUp.com

It is particularly good for watches and jewellery as there is usually such a huge choice that you want to narrow down to e.g. only those with at least 80% off.
