IDC: Android To Maintain Strong Market Lead Over iOS During The Next Four Years

Three Months After Firing Much of Its Staff, Hipstamatic Releases Gangster-Themed FreePak

Three Months After Firing Much of Its Staff, Hipstamatic Releases Gangster-Themed FreePak

The jury’s still out on what effect the firing in August of some key players at Hipstamatic will have on the app itself — but the toy-camera simulator is still pumping out the FreePaks, those cute virtual lens-and-film pairings that often tie in with some pop-culture reference. This time it’s based off the star-stuffed Gangster Squad flick, set to be released early next year. Oh, and they’re giving away a Canon 5D Mk III in a contest, if you’re interested.

Use Typist to Sharpen Your Typing Fingers Till They Bleed [Daily Freebie]

Use Typist to Sharpen Your Typing Fingers Till They Bleed [Daily Freebie]

It’s rarer now, but once in a while I still come across a journalist or blogger agonizingly hunting-and-pecking a story to completion — in a world where a low WPM means starvation (or at least, a diet of Ramen noodles).

It makes me smile, because I used to be like that. I’m much faster now, thanks to an abundance of repetition. But I’m still no maestro — so I’ve employed a secret weapon to help fashion me into a typing cyborg: The free Typist Mac app. Although I suppose it isn’t much of a secret since I’ve blabbed this to practically the entire Internet.

HoursTracker for iPhone Goes Free Today [Daily Freebie]

Sometimes, discovering a free app is like finding gold; other times, it’s more like finding a rock covered in gold paint. Case in point: While we really dig the free version of HoursTracker HD for iPad, the freebie of the iPhone version is severely hobbled — and not nearly as useful.

But just for today, the superb full version of the HoursTracker iPhone app is free.

Stan Lee’s First iOS Game, Verticus, Hits the App Store

Stan Lee’s First iOS Game, Verticus, Hits the App Store

That’s right: The game Verticus, which dropped onto the App Store today, was crafted with input from comic legend Stan Lee (is the “comic” part even necessary?), who wrote the story and created the titular character. Oh, and did I mention that he also lent his 89-year-old voice for the game’s Mission Commander?

Logitech Releases Long-Awaited Mac Compatible Software for Its Alert Security Cameras

Logitech Releases Long-Awaited Mac Compatible Software for Its Alert Security Cameras

Finally.

Logitech’s Alert security system seemed pretty impressive when it first popped up on our radar: advanced indoor and outdoor cameras, night vision, lots of options — and here’s where your ears should perk up — the ability to view and control the cameras from an iPad or iPhone through the Logitech Alert iOS app. Only problem was, Logitech somehow forgot to make a Mac version of the Alert Commander software that comes with, and controls, the system.

But today Logitech has indeed released the a Mac version of the Alert Commander software (available as a free download at the App Store). Better late than never, and now we’re happy. But did it really have to take this long?

Goodbye Pinterest, Hello Pornterest: Keep Your Fetishes Private With Pinterest’s New Secret Boards

After being bombarded with requests, Pinterest is finally going to allow users to create private boards. Pinterest is calling them “Secret Boards” and rolling them out in hopes that users will use them to create their holiday shopping lists. I’d call that wishful thinking, since we all know what those “Secret Boards” are really going to be used for.

Mosaic Lets You Make Gorgeous, Stress-Free Photobooks From Your iPhone

Mosaic Lets You Make Gorgeous, Stress-Free Photobooks From Your iPhone

With the holidays coming, maybe there’s no such thing as “too many photobook makers.” At least, that’s probably what Mixbook is banking on with their new Mosaic app, which lets you quickly create a hard-cover photobook for $20.

This one’s a little different though: Not only can you create and order your photobook with your iPhone, but the books are created with an unusual effect where photo thumbnails peek through windows in the book’s cover. Definitely  attention-grabbing.
