MacJournal (iPad), $5.99

MacJournal is an Apple blogging and journaling tool new to the iPad. If you do a lot of blogging on Mac products (and would like to add your iPad to that list), check this one out.

You can manage several blog accounts from within MacJournal, as well as keep them all well-organized from within the app. Oh, and you can blog from it, to any of those journals – or to all of them. Beyond that, MacJournal gives you lots of ways to keep track of what you’ve written or find entries quickly and easily.

AARP (iPhone), Free

Hate to break it to you, but this is your grandpa’s iPhone. And now he has the app to prove it.AARP’s mobile app actually makes me wish I was a member. Of course, it has access to all AARP’s usual discounts and member benefits within the app. But is also makes a digital copy of your membership card, so you never miss a chance to save money because you left your card at home.

And the app is full of information, such as articles from AARP’s magazine and video clips you can stream. Toss in Twitter and Facebook functionality for sharing everything, and AARP jumps up to become a pretty slick, money saving social tool.

360 Web Browser (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

The Safari Web browser on iPhone is okay, but it’s nothing to scream at, and it definitely has no style. If you’re looking for style, check out 360 Web Browser.

In addition to just looking cool, the browser app is an award-winner that supports all kinds of cool features, such as tabs and plug-ins. For only a buck, it sounds like a great alternative to Apple’s native apps.

 

Prostopleer (iPhone) Free

Yes, Prostopleer (I can’t pronounce it, either) may be an app that streams music from Russian servers over the Internet, but I assure you, it works in English and is full of recognizable American music.

It’s a streaming radio app that’s actually pretty full of available music with an extremely simple presentation. Pop open Prostopleer and you get a search bar. Type in what you want to listen to, either by artist or by track title, and Prostopleer retrieves it almost instantly. Hit play and a few seconds later, you’re streaming the track.

It won’t be free forever, so I suggest you grab Prostopleer now while you can.
