Audiolio: A multitasking note-taking and audio recording app for iPad

There are a ton of note-taking apps for the iPad, since the portable hands-on device is so analogous to the traditional pen and notepad. Many of these apps also allow a way to record audio in the background as you take notes. Audiolio (US$2.99) looks at taking notes in another way, providing...

Dear Aunt TUAW: Help me tame my bookmarks

Dear Aunt TUAW, Help me Auntie! I've got a zillion--maybe 3 or 4 less--bookmarks. I want to validate the good ones and discard the bad. Is there an app for that? I mean automatically do this and then give me options for saving the good/tossing the bad and perhaps even seeing if the root...

TUAW Tip: Sync your bookmarks to an iPhone or iPod touch with Xmarks

I'm an avid user of Xmarks (formerly Foxmarks) as are probably many of you. I browse the Internet regularly on three different computers, and so it helps immensely to have all of my Firefox bookmarks and passwords synced. But the one fly in my ointment has been my iPhone's mobile Safari...

I went to an Apple Store on Halloween and they gave me... a bookmark

Several TUAW readers have tipped us to the fact that many Apple Stores were in the Halloween spirit last night, handing out treats for ghouls, goblins, and Mac nerds who wandered by. However, it sounds like Apple was playing the anonymous homeowner to Charlie Brown, who always got a rock instead...

SayAgain - an audio bookmarking app

A few weeks ago we covered the Bookmark app, a subsystem for playing and bookmarking audio books. I was quite impressed with it, but some comments dinged it for not playing in the background when the app is closed. It also only handled audiobooks and some felt it would be more useful if it covered...

TUAW Tip: use the Help menu to search Safari bookmarks and history

Note: This tip is Leopard-only, sorry Tiger holdouts. The Command-? trick is easily one of my favorites among the less-ballyhooed feature expansions of Leopard. If you missed that one, it allows you to search for menu items in any application by pulling down the "Help" menu, which can be triggered...

Beta Beat: fruux keeps you in sync

One of the most frequent questions we hear from readers on our Ask TUAW posts (and for our doting Aunt TUAW) is a simple one, with no simple answer: "How can I replace the synchronization features of MobileMe with a free service or a software package that doesn't cost me $99 a year?" We feel your...

Keep your bookmarks in sync with BookIt

I have an admission to make: I change browsers on a fairly regular basis (normally, I'm found swapping between Camino and Safari in short succession as I struggle to find a nirvana between the two of them). But what to do with my favourites? Some people I know like to keep browser favourites...

Delibar 0.9: del.icio.us menu gains performance and custom list options

It's been a while since we've mentioned Delibar, the del.icio.us client from Shiny Frog that gives you access to all your bookmarks from the menubar, but a recent v0.9 update brings some noteworthy new features and enhancements. While you could already sort your bookmarks into nested folders...

TUAW Tip: Camino does bookmarks in the Dock, Tab groups

Camino is a great browser that exists somewhere in that place between Safari and Firefox. It's a spawn of Mozilla's darling browser, but it is decidedly far more Mac-like in its functionality and UI. Even cooler still is that Camino has plenty of tricks up its sleeve, such as the ability to add a...
