This site was created by Jeff Maynard to review the best-in-class of a variety of apps for Apple devices (Mac, iPad, iPhone, iPod, TV, Watch).
In each category I have reviewed a number of apps (anything from two to ten) and selected the one I think is best - this is the one reviewed.
My process is simple (but comprehensive): use each app for weeks in 'normal' working and doing every day stuff. In this way I can better understand the nuances of use and don't rely on the PR stuff from the app developer.I do not review apps I am not planning to keep...
This Apple app review site does not really need a Help section. From the Home page choose the category of app you are interested in (Mac, iPadOS, iOS - iPadOS, iOS only - Mac only) and read the details of the app in which you are interested.
You can click on the link following to see screenshots or click on the brief description to see more details.
See the About tab for details of how the apps are chosen and reviewed.
There are very many weather apps available for all your devices but Hello Weather just seems to be one to enjoy using.
Hello Weather shows everything that matters in one simple screen with the current conditions and future forecast seen in an instant; more details are just one tap away.
Hello Weather is powered by the best data sources including Dark Sky, AccuWeather, ClimaCell, The Weather Company, and AerisWeather.
Many of the esoteric elements of weather forecasting (such as dewpoint and barometric pressure) are presented in a more human-friendly manner
The team behind Hello Weather has invested much effort in simplifying the display of new and forthcoming conditions.
As with weather forecasting, there are lots and lots of speedometer apps available.
However, this seems to be the only speedometer app that offers a watch complication.
And that is what sets it aside and makes it your best choice.
There are lots of activities (such as running, canoeing, boating, jogging and more) where you want to know your speed but don't want to get your phone out or tap and scroll on a watch.
Instead, just lift your wrist and see your current speed on your watch complication.
Such is the additional functionality (compared with the Philips Hue app) of iConnectHue that it is endorsed by Philips themselves!.
iConnectHue uses intelligent timers to activate Hue-Lamps at sunrise, sunset or any defined time – you can even have a timer recognise if you are at home or only act if a designated group is on or off.
Add up to 8 actions and 5 alternations to a Hue Smart Button. On your Dimmer or Smart Button, you can set press AND hold functions.
iOS 14 widgets can be set for Scenes, Magic Scenes, group and light switches, apply colours to groups, sleep timers, reminders, group dimmer, see group light states, your temperature (from any motion sensor), disable/enable motion sensors or even start animations.
iConnectHue comes with a animation package included, and offers you several more optional animation packages.
Infuse really comes into its own if used on an Apple TV.
Apple TV's native video player has limited support for the multitude of formats currently available; in particular it does not support .MKV files.
Infuse removes the pain of converting video files to one of the Apple TV supported formats (such as .MP4) since it will play just about any video format.
You can also host your videos on any local device (Mac, NAS, or PC) or one of several Cloud services (inc Box, Dropbox, OneDrive and Google Drive).
If you store videos on multiple platforms, Infuse will show a single library view that is automatically populated with metadata.
Playback progress is synched, via iCloud, between apple TV and iOS devices.
