Index Card iPad App Makes Organizing Stories or World Domination Schemes Easy [Review]

Index Card iPad App Makes Organizing Stories or World Domination Schemes Easy [Review]

Index Card allows you to easily create and drag your cards around its simulated corkboard.

Index Card allows users to organize their stories, articles or thoughts without adding a lot of unnecessary weight to the app. When I first tried Index Card about two months ago, I tried it against a number of other apps that contained similar index cards features. For the sheer act of organizing a story, which is why I originally downloaded the app, Index Card came out on top above other apps like, for example, Storyist. Storyist, while working great as a story writing app, didn’t offer some of the features in its index cards feature that the Index Cards app offered. And if you want to check out the app, now’s a good time — it’s on sale for $2 (from $5) till early tomorrow morning.

iHealth HS3 Wireless Bluetooth Scale: Down to the Bare Bones [Review, Fitness Special]

iHealth HS3 Wireless Bluetooth Scale: Down to the Bare Bones [Review, Fitness Special]

Out of the box, the iHealth HS3 Wireless Bluetooth Scale ($70) is somewhat impressive. With its digital (albeit not backlit) display and snazzy looking-glass top, this is a scale that will at least look spiffy in your bathroom when company is over. Even in the box, the scale makes a good case for gadget adoption: It promises to keep track of your weight, calories and exercise easily using only the scale itself and an accompanying app that can be used on your iPhone or iPad. Technically, the iHealth Scale does do that, but there are a few kinks that make this product’s promises fall flat.
