Mail clients are becoming a big deal in the App Store. Only a few weeks ago, Orchestra launched their popular Mailbox app to much fanfare. Before this, Twitter clients were trending, before that, RSS readers. Mail clients are likely to be the next wave of iOS apps for the months ahead.
Evomail is another mail client for the iPad to recently hit the App Store. This Gmail-specific app lets users access, organize, and respond to their mail in a way that incorporates Gmail’s interactions with Apple’s native Mail app…Design
As mail clients go, this one looks great. It has a classic design with clean features. It definitely has a modern business-like feel to it. The app can be used in portrait or landscape mode and looks about the same in either view. You just have more layers in portrait mode.
The app shows your email accounts at the far left of the screen, with your profile picture in a button at the top corner. The next section shows the inbox of the account you currently have selected. If you tap the three vertical lines at the top of the inbox, you will be able to see the email folders for that account.
To the far right is the actual email. When you have multiple emails in a single thread, all prior messages are listed in chronological order below the most current one.
Emails are created the same way they would be in Apple’s Mail app. When you enter the name of a person into the address line, a list of contacts will appear. To add an image, tap the attachment icon on the subject line.
The inbox, account folders, and messages are all displayed at the same time so that you can access any section without having to “tap back” to a different screen.App Use
The first thing you will need to do is log into your Gmail account. You can have multiple accounts attached to Evomail, but at the moment, they must be Gmail accounts. The developers are promising other service support in the future. Once logged in, you will see your accounts listed on the right side of the app. The number of unread messages will be listed next to the account name.
Select one of your accounts to see your mail’s inbox. When you select the account, a new section will appear to the right that shows all mail in that account’s inbox. You can see your account’s different folders by tapping the icon in the section’s upper-left corner.
The folders will appear in a new section to the left of the inbox. Your labeled folders will have colored dots next to them.
You can label new mail in the inbox by tapping the label icon at the bottom of the screen. Once labeled, you can archive the mail by tapping the check mark icon right next to the label icon. To delete a currently selected mail item, tap the “x.”
You can also move, archive, or delete groups of mail by selecting the “Edit” tab in the inbox section. You can then select any number of messages and then move them to a specific folder, archive them, or delete them all at once.
To respond to an email, tap one of the arrows at the bottom of the message. Like Apple’s Mail app, you can respond to the sender, reply to all, or forward to a new recipient. You can also respond to an email by swiping to the left from the current message. A response mail window will appear.
To start a new email, tap the create mail icon at the bottom left of the screen. You iPad’s contacts will automatically appear when you start typing into the address line. You can add images from your photo app, but you can’t attach documents.The Good
This email client looks good and runs smoothly. I love being able to label messages and redirect them to their appropriate folder. I also like being able to see all messages in an email thread instead of only the most recent ones. Being able to see your account’s inbox, folders, and current message all on one screen is a very efficient use of the iPad’s screen.The Bad
There are still some bugs to work out. On more than one occasion, I was unable to send an email. I’d tap the “Send” button and nothing would happen. When I closed the app in the multitasking bar and reopened it, it worked properly.
I also had trouble receiving email notifications. I only received two notifications in the two days that I used the app. One of the notifications came hours after the email was sent to me.
There is also no way to see the tutorial again after the first time. I wanted to know how to save an email address to my contacts, but wasn’t able to figure it out. The starting tutorial may have shown that, but I don’t remember and couldn’t find it in the app.
I also noticed a couple of bugs with the number of unread mail messages. Finally, I’d like to be able to join multiple account inboxes into a single inbox.Value
This email client costs $2.99. You are getting a fairly useful app for the price. However, because it is still in the early stages of existence, there are a few features that are missing and a lot of bugs to work out. If this were a free email client, I’d say it is a great bargain. However, for the three-dollar price tag, I wish it had launched with less bugs and more features.Conclusion
Evomail is a great starting point for what will hopefully become an outstanding app. It looks fantastic, but has a couple of rough edges. First impressions are very important. Evomail is like a young go-getter entering the workforce who shows up to an interview wearing a really nice suit, but sports some ratty sneakers that smell bad. You will definitely give him a chance, but you hope he does something about those shoes.
[UPDATE: Evomail is now optimized for the iPhone and iPad and is also compatible with Yahoo, iCloud, and IMAP servers.]
You're reading Evomail Review: A Modern Email App For Your Ipad
Status Board is a data display that allows users to see various panels of information, all on one screen. You can see tweets, calendar events, news feeds, email, and much more. You can customize graphs and tables and even make your own panel using HTML. Once you’ve created your board, you can display it on your big-screen TV using Apple TV AirPlay Mirroring or with an HDMI cable and iPad adapter. Status Board is the ultimate data collection display panel…Design
The whole point of this app is its design, so it is a good thing that it is excellent. The entire display is based on a shadowed black theme with rounded corners and a modern, businesslike look. Bold colors from the graphs and tables stand out against the stark background. The font is bold white with subtext in gray.
Since it is the user’s job to design the display, it is up to you to make it look the way you want. You can make the weather section huge and the Twitter feed a ticker, or make your business graph take up the entire bottom of the screen while showing the time, your RSS feed, and your email across the top.
You can display your newly designed board either as a full-screen iPad image, or as wide-screen HDTV. The HDTV feature is for displaying the board on a large screen TV. However, to access the full image, it costs an additional $9.99. Don’t worry, you can still show your beautiful status update display on your big screen using Apple TV and AirPlay mirroring. It will show up as a letterbox display instead. Personally, I think it looks great that way, but I can see how some businesses would want to upgrade to full HDTV to show off their board at the office.App Use
Depending on your level of business needs, this app is either the easiest display app ever, or something that will take a bit of work. If you just want to see your Twitter feed, RSS updates, the local weather, the time, and your calendar events, you just have to add the panel. If you want to include your own graphs, tables, or DIY panels, you will need to follow a couple of additional steps. The good news is that there is a tutorial for everything.
To add a clock panel, touch the clock icon at the bottom of the screen and drag it to the board. You can place it anywhere and then resize it according to your personal taste. You can switch between analog and digital by tapping the newly added panel. Tapping a panel allows you to edit it. If the clock is set to New York Time, but you want it to show California time, change the location in the edit screen.
Do the same thing with the weather panel. Drag it to the board and tap it to edit. You can switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit and change the location.
Adding the calendar app is as easy as allowing your iPad to access it. If you didn’t see the pop up access request when you first opened the app, you can manually allow Status Board to access your calendar by going to your settings app, selecting Privacy, and then Calendar.
To add your mail account, you must enter your username, password, and IMAP server. I use Google Mail and the IMAP information automatically added when I entered my email address. I’m not sure how it works with mail servers like Outlook.
Adding Twitter is just as easy as adding the calendar. If you’ve allowed Status Board to access your Twitter account, you can then edit what feed you see on your display. You can view your personal tweets, timelines you follow, how many followers you have, mentions, and a feed for a specific search term. You could have an entire Status Board dedicated to nothing but Twitter.
If you want to add an RSS panel, you can chose from a short list that Panic has already included, or add your own websites using the site or feed URL. The thing I don’t like about this is that I have to manually add my favorite RSS feeds. I follow a lot of them and it would be great if there were a way to search popular feeds or select websites within certain categories. I know this is not an RSS reader, but manually adding the URL for every website I follow is an arduous task.
However, Status Board includes a very comprehensive step-by-step guide to creating CSV graphs and adding them to the app. I was able to create a monthly sales graph for my record label in just a couple of minutes. The app also allows for creating JSON graphs. However, that was a little beyond my abilities. If you use JSON formatted graphs, the tutorial explains how to add them to Status Board.
You can also add your own data table in a very similar way to making a graph. You can add a simple data table using CSV formatting, or create a richer visual table using HTML. If you don’t know how to use HTML coding, the app’s tutorial includes some simple instructions and even has the coding text for a sample table.
You can also create your own panel using HTML coding from an outside web page. Make a BART schedule panel, or a ski report panel. Follow the app’s tutorial to get the panel to match the appearance of Status Board. One of the best aspects of the DIY panels is that there are already a bunch of them popping up on the web. Panic has added a list to their blog and there are even third-party websites being created specifically to list Status Board DIY panels. I added an AAPL stock tracker from Maccast by simply opening their link from within my iPad’s Safari browser.
I left Status Board open and running for about five hours without charging my iPad and it only drained down about 30 percent. For such a data-heavy app, I was surprised to see that it didn’t suck up more of my battery life than that.
The only issue I have is that I can’t have more than one Status Board at a time. If you want a board dedicated to your work data and a different one dedicated to your personal life, you’ll have to delete one in order to create another. I’d like to see Panic add the ability to have multiple boards.Value
This is a pricey productivity app at $9.99. If you just want to look at a clock and weather board, you may not want to spend the money. However, if you are a fan of data collection, or are the kind of person that creates graphs for fun, this is worth the high price. If you run a business and want to keep track of your sales figures, inventory status, or any other data collection information, you may benefit from spending the extra $9.99 on the full HDTV in-app purchase so you can display your board in your office.Conclusion
Status Board may be the best looking and most useful productivity app to hit the App Store to date. The reason it is such a great product is that you can create your own data panels using whatever information you want. You are not beholden to the developer’s idea of important information. Because of its high price tag, I can’t recommend it for everyone, but if you see yourself benefiting from creating various data graphs, tables, and panels that can be displayed on one screen, then the app is worth the price. Download it in the App Store today.
The iPad offers a ton of options for fun and games, but Apple’s tablet has plenty of potential as a business tool, too. Here are five apps that can transform your iPad into a must-have work accessory.Microsoft Office for iPad
Microsoft Word on the iPad retains the look and feel of using Word on a PC.
Apple’s iWork is sold as three separate iPad apps: Keynote, Numbers, and Pages.GotoMyPC for iPad
GotoMyPC has long been one of my favorite programs because of all the time I spend working on different computers. This remote access program was one of the best ways to access information stored on one PC when you’re miles and miles away, sitting in front of another computer. Still, I was hesitant about trying it out an iPad (it also works on Android devices and Amazon’s Kindle Fire).
GoToMyPC lets you see and use a PC remotely, but viewing all of its contents on the relatively small iPad screen can strain your eyes.
I needn’t have worried: GotoMyPC’s iPad app seamlessly connected me to my home computer, allowing me to slide, tap, and touch the screen to access the files and applications I needed. The iPad’s smaller screen limits how much you can do with the contents of your PC, but GotoMyPC for iPad is incredibly useful nonetheless.Cubby
LogMeIn is another excellent remote access tool, but with its Cubby service, I might never need to use it. That’s because Cubby stores files and folders in the cloud and allows you to access them from various devices—like an iPad, if you install the free Cubby app. (Cubby itself is free for limited personal use; plans with additional features, including more storage and security, start at $4 per month.) The app is easy to use and lets you access files and folders and save them for offline viewing. The iPad does limit what you can do with all of the files in your Cubby, as you might expect. Still, it’s a handy way to access important files when you’re on the go.
Cubby lets you view and share files stored in the cloud from your iPad.Note Taker HD
Note Taker HD lets you write notes by hand, but your handwriting may benefit from using a stylus.
I spend a lot of time jotting notes on a notepad. Then, when I need to find what I’ve written, I’m left digging through piles of paper, often left with what I need written on a crumpled piece of paper, if I can find it at all. Enter Note Taker HD: this $5 iPad app lets me create handwritten notes in digital form, right on the iPad screen. You can write notes with your finger, but you’ll have more control if you invest in an iPad stylus. Note Taker HD also lets you enter text by typing, insert images and shapes, and annotate PDFs. I like how you can organize multiples pages into one document and then store documents in folders. I may never have to dig around my bag for a crumpled notepad again.
Every week iDownloadblog brings a roundup of awesome apps for you to check out and enjoy. We try to vary our picks, but a lot of these apps usually come from the App Store. If an interesting web or jailbreak app catches our eye, we’ll include that in our picks, too.
This week, we’ve got three App Store apps that all serve very different purposes. Here’s this week’s picks!Ustream for iPad
Ustream has finally updated its iPhone-only app to also support for the iPad. With Ustream on the iPad, you can watch and follow your favorite channels, as well as broadcast straight from the iPad itself! If you’re looking for a free, online streaming solution on the iPad, Ustream’s universal app may be just what you need.
The app also supports AirPlay and social network integration for sharing your activity. Ustream on the iPad is a nice experience, and we recommend downloading the app for the free in the App Store.Tumblita
If you use the blogging/social network site Tumblr, then you may be familiar with its official iPhone app. There’s a new Tumblr app for the iPhone and iPad on the block, and she’s called Tumblita.
While most will probably prefer Tumblr’s own app for the iPhone, Tumblita on the iPad is really nice app for Tumblr users. Previously, you’d have to check Tumblr’s web interface on the iPad to see your feed and post content, but Tumblita lets you do all that inside a full-featured iPad app. Some of Tumblita’s perks include support for multiple accounts, excellent customization for posting content from the iPad, support for services like Instapaper, and a streamlined viewing window for your Tumblr feed.
Tumblita has a lot of really cool features and an interesting look, but I have a feeling that some may not like the way you have to browse through content from other blogs. You’ll just have to download Tumblita yourself and be the judge. It’s available as a universal app for $2.99 in the App Store.Task Rabbit
Task Rabbit is definitely one of the more creative productivity apps we’ve encountered in the App Store. The idea of Task Rabbit is that other people do your chores for you. The app ties into a collaborative service that allows you to post a task you don’t really want to do (ex: go to the grocery), along with how much you’re willing to pay to get it done. Ideally, other users will then respond and complete that task for you.
We’re a little skeptical of Task Rabbit, but the idea sounds awesome. Instead of having to take out the trash yourself, why not have someone do it for you for $5? People looking for a job are called “Rabbits,” and task categories include Cleaning, Donations, Shopping, Food Delivery, Cleaning, Donations, Delivery and Something Else.
Be cautious if you decide to give this app a try. You never know what kind of “Rabbit” you could get to do your chores for you. Task Rabbit is available for free in the App Store.
That’s it for this week’s picks! Let us know what you think of these apps. Better yet, what cool apps have you downloaded recently?
Portable Document Format (PDFs) are universal, and we use them in our daily life in college, office, homes, and elsewhere. Your teacher may share notes in this format. You may have your lease agreement, several office essentials like payslips, etc., as PDFs. Now, if you often deal with PDFs, it is wise to get an app that does everything across all the devices you own! This is where the PDFelement Pro iOS app comes in. It lets you have your way with the PDFs! In this full review, let’s learn more about the app and see how to use it.
Let us begin by opening a file in the app. For this, tap on Blue-white ‘+’ button to import PDF from the Files app, images from the Photos app, or transfer from the computer. You may also connect to Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, etc.Marking Up and Annotating PDFs
Once you have a PDF open inside the app, you get to witness its real powers. First, tap on the pen icon from the top. This opens a plethora of excellent tools.
Highlight: Tap on the left-most button and choose the desired highlight color. Now, use your finger (or Apple Pencil on iPad) to highlight important texts. You can also switch to a different color and highlight other parts. It is an excellent feature! To change color or remove a highlight, tap on it, and choose Color or Clear.
Strikethrough and Underline: Like highlight, you can also underline text for importance. And if there are texts that no longer hold value, you may cut a line through it. As expected, you are free to choose the desired strikethrough or underline color.
Draw or scribble on the PDF: Tapping on the thick pen icon inside PDFelement Pro lets you draw or handwrite anywhere on the PDF. You can set the pen thickness, opacity, and color. If you made a mistake, tap on the eraser icon to fix things.
Add shapes in the PDF: Tap on the circle-square icon to play with shapes. You can draw a square, circle, line, or arrow. You can also fill the shapes with solid colors, change the border color, thickness, and play with the overall opacity. This tool opens up the possibility of creating fantastic shapes and filling them with text, images, etc.
Add stamp and signature: Tap on the stamp icon and choose one of the several pre-made designs. Next, please tap on the fountain pen icon to create a signature and add it to the contract or agreement PDF.
Undo Redo: Tap on the left curved arrow to undo. For redo, long-press on it and choose Redo.
Thanks to smart font recognition, you can completely change the existing text of a PDF. For this, open the PDF file inside PDFelement Pro and tap on the ‘T’ icon from the top center. You will see a faint gray border across text boxes. You can now drag and move the block to a different location or even change the length and breadth.
Next, tap anywhere on the text to erase it, change it, or add new words.
Another exciting thing is that you can tweak the font size, style, color, make it bold or italic, and change the text alignment. To do this, select text inside the box and choose desired option from toolset above the keyboard. The results are astonishingly accurate and look as good as the original PDF.Playing with Images in a PDF
Images make the PDF exciting and convey the message quickly, even to untrained eyes. Inserting photos using PDFelement Pro is a cakewalk. Simply tap on the image icon from the top, tap on Add Image, and choose one from your Photos app.
This tool also lets you work on the images that are already in the PDF. Tap on the same photo icon from the top. Next, tap on an existing PDF image. You can now rotate, crop, replace, copy, delete, or extract the picture and save it to the device Photos app.Creating a New PDF using PDFelement Pro
Once you install the app, launch it on your iPhone or iPad. Next, tap on the plus icon and select Create PDF. Choose the desired paper style. You are now on the blank canvas. From here, you can tap on the pen icon from the top. Now select the appropriate tool like a pen, text box, shapes, stamp, signature, etc.
Tap on the ‘T’ icon from the top and then tap on Add Text to type things into the PDF.
I can go on and on explaining things, but the truth is, the app is straightforward to use. Once you are there, you will be able to figure out things on your own.
When you are done, tap the three dots icon from the top right. From here, you can save it, print, or set a password, email it, upload it to cloud storage, share it on any other application via the iOS Share Sheet, and more.PDFelement Pro as an Excellent PDF Reader
Besides editing, annotating, and creating PDFs, this app also discharges the duty of a PDF reader robustly. All you have to do is open the file inside PDFelement Pro.
For convenience, tap on the open book icon and choose the desired scrolling orientation. You may also set a comfortable brightness level for long reading sessions.Excellent Multitasking Capabilities on iPad
PDFelement Pro on iPad gains new multitasking powers! You can open it in Split View with another app or slide it over an existing app.
You can also drag PDFs inside it from the Files app or other supported apps, as well as drag PDFs out of it to other compatible applications. Our full guide on how to multitask on an iPad will tell you the steps to perform these actions.
Finally, you can also use the Apple Pencil for perfect precision while drawing, scribbling, underlining, etc. This app seems to do it all!Platform Wide Availability
For maximum productivity, we often use multiple devices. For example, all day I sit in front of a computer in the office. When I am in transit or at home, I use my iPhone. Thus, it becomes a godsend when an application you use often and love is available on all devices you use. Plus, they will launch a desktop Windows version in the end of Nov, please stay tunes.Available on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and PC
PDFelement Pro is available on iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and Windows. This lets you have a consistent experience on all the devices you might own.One Account for all Devices and Platform
Another icing on top is that you just need one account for all platforms and devices. This keeps your workflow hassle-free. You can also buy a single plan that works on all these devices (iOS, iPadOS, macOS, Windows). More on it later in the ‘Price’ section below.Our Verdict!
PDFelement does so many things right that it is hard not to recommend it. In addition to a robust feature set that supercharges your PDFs, one other pleasing factor is decent, calm color along with an intuitive, easy to use app design.
I had been on PDFexpert (on and off). No doubt that it’s a potent app. But PDFelement Pro’s affordable pricing, clutter-free clean design (eye-pleasing sky blue and white color combination), and the perfect mix of essential tools make me prefer it over the competition!
Conclusion: If you often work with PDFs and are looking to get the best possible experience, PDFelement is the one app to invest in. It enhances your productivity and lets you #PDFYourWay!
Price: In the iOS app, you see two price options.
All Platforms: One plan for iPhone, iPad, Mac, & PC. You can choose to pay monthly ($19.99), quarterly ($39.99), or annually ($89.99).
Mobile Only plan: For only iPhone and iPad. The monthly subscription costs $4.99, quarterly $9.99, and the annual plan is just $29.99!

I have been an Apple user for over seven years now. At iGeeksBlog, I love creating how-tos and troubleshooting guides that help people do more with their iPhone, iPad, Mac, AirPods, and Apple Watch. In my free time, I like to watch stand up comedy videos, tech documentaries, news debates, and political speeches.
Over the weekend, we learned some preliminary details about Apple’s planned updates for two of their most popular Mac accessories, the Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Mouse, in the form of FCC filings. Aside from new and improved connectivity thanks to Bluetooth 4.2, both accessories appear to have design deviations from their existing models, as detailed by the rough sketches accompanying the FCC filings. Based on these sketches, I decided to more fully visualize the changes Apple could be planning for an all new and more modern wireless keyboard based on other modern Apple product designs.
Long Time Coming
The Apple Wireless Keyboard as we know it today is a dinosaur in terms of technology products. It was first introduced alongside its larger, wired counterpart way back in 2007, not long after the first iPhone debuted, and the iPod, now removed, still reigned supreme in the navigation on chúng tôi In 2009, the wireless model was updated slightly to use one less battery, and a smaller wired keyboard was introduced. In 2011, two function keys received updated graphics to coincide with UI changes in the then new Mac OS X Lion. Aside from those tweaks, everything about the keyboard has remained the same for 8 long years. It’s safe to say that a refreshed design is in order. Let’s take a look at what’s changed since then.
Macs no longer ship with optical disc drives. Yet every wireless keyboard still ships with an eject button in the upper right corner of the keyboard. This is no longer useful on newer Macs as software can control occasional uses with external SuperDrives, and makes absolutely no sense when paired with an iPad, another popular use of the keyboard.
With the Apple Watch, Apple introduced the font San Francisco, an all new, custom typeface that has been making its way across the product lines, most recently as the keycap font for the new MacBook and coming soon Mac and iOS devices with iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan. The Apple Wireless Keyboard and MacBook Pro still use the older VAG Rounded font.Finally, along with the 12″ MacBook came the butterfly mechanism, an improvement to both the stability and space efficiency of individual key caps. This allows each individual key to be 40% thinner and 17% larger than on previous Apple keyboards. Naturally, this change should trickle down to the wireless keyboard.
The FCC filing sketch for the new Apple keyboard appears to show a design that ditches the cylindrical AA battery compartment on the rear of the device, in favor of a flat, low profile design with four rubber feet, and a small power button on the top edge. While the final design could deviate from the drawing, this change would make sense. The flat profile would imply improved typing ergonomics similar to MacBooks, reducing upward bending of the wrist. Ditching the AA battery power source in favor of a rechargeable, internal battery could also play into Apple’s continued efforts towards environmental conservation, reducing the need for disposable batteries, and perhaps finally allowing the abandoned Apple Battery Charger to retire.
Apple’s new found love for the Silver, Space Gray, and Gold trifecta of colors has permeated to almost all of their products, from the new MacBook, to Beats headphones, to the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, all the way down to Apple gift cards. This new, colorful world would only be truly complete with keyboards to match. With an increased number of wireless keyboards being used with iOS devices, it would be fantastic to have matching finishes available across the line. Both white keys like are currently found on Apple’s keyboard and black caps like the ones found on MacBooks would work well, but Apple would likely choose one or the other. iOS devices in both silver and gold typically use white as their accent color.
Below you can view galleries of how each color configuration could look. Which is your favorite?
