Apple’s Safari browser for iPad hasn’t seen any major changes in UI since iOS 3.x. The browser is very fast, intuitive but lacks in some key features. One of the major drawbacks of Safari is that it does not support tabbed browsing. The App Store offers some great alternatives to safari and now Terra for iPad 2 is here to offer superior browsing experience on Apple’s tablet.

Terra for iPad has been developed by Readdle, developers of popular document management app for iOS called ReaddleDocs. The app is rich in features and most importantly supports tabs!

Users who use iPad for browsing the web extensively will know that Apple’s current way of opening a new page is not very efficient when compared with a browser which supports tabs. So, that feature alone makes Terra a must have app and it is available for free on the App Store.

The app allows you to save webpages for offline viewing, enables you to download files and then open in supported native apps. Other noteworthy features include gestures to navigate to the next tab, forward and backward. You can also enable private browsing and password protect the app which are certainly very good privacy options. While testing the app we did find that when you click home button and then switch back to the app via multitasking tray the app shows the active tab for a split second before it shows the page asking for the passkey . This bug obviously affects reliability of the passkey option.

If you are looking for a new browser or just want to experience the web more efficiently then we highly recommend Terra for iPad.




]]> 1 PDF Expert for iPhone Caters To All Your PDF Needs Wed, 23 Mar 2011 22:33:56 +0000 Read More]]> PDF ExpertPDF Expert is a feature rich business tool that caters to nearly all of your PDF needs on the iPhone. This app takes PDFs to another level on your iPhone by allowing you to: read and annotate PDFs, highlight text, makes and save these changes so that they are viewable in Preview and Acrobat Reader. The money making feature of course is the app’s ability to allow PDF form filling, as it is the only app for the iPhone that allows you to do this.

The user interface is extremely simple to understand and makes for a very learnable application. When you load up the app you see pretty much everything you will need with the following options: Documents, Recents, Network and Settings. Along with viewing the document you have the options to: create bookmarks, create annotations, search the documents, go to certain page, send by email, text reflow, print or even open in another application. For instance, when I selected the open in option I had the following choices: DocsToGo, Easysign, GoDocs, Evernote, iBooks and Air Sharing. Obviously there is a lot that you can accomplish with all of these options.

PDF Expert iPhoneThe next tab happens to be incredibly useful as well. First you have your “Recents” tab which is fairly self-explanatory but being able to quickly access the documents that you have recently used is always a must for any document management app. Next you have the “Network” tab and this might be one of my favorite features that is included in this application. Of course the ability to fill in PDF forms is huge as this is the only app with that capability but what do you do if you can’t easily get the app to your computer. This is where the Network tab shines. This allows you to easily access files on your online storage sites as well as directly browse your phone for documents via your computer. This functionality is a must for me as many of my documents that I use are stored in my Dropbox account or my Google Docs account online in the cloud. This now means that I can grab my PDF forms for purchasing at work on my iPhone and fill them out and email them to my boss. I cannot tell you how useful this can be when I am out of the office or not in front of my laptop. The fact that you have the option to use your phone for yet another business solution is amazing.

PDF Expert ReviewThe storage options are plentiful as well. The options include: Readdle, MobileMe iDisk, Public iDisk, Dropbox, Google Docs, SugarSync, FTP Server, SFTP Server, Other WebDAV Server,,, filesanywhere, Storegate and iCloud. That covers most of the big players and even if you use something else it is worth looking at one of these if you often deal with PDFs.

Passkey Lock is an option that you will find under settings tab and can be very important if you work in an office that stresses security as mine does. You can configure Wi-Fi Drive here which is enabled from the jump. PDF Viewer options are also housed here and give you some pretty cool configurable options to customize your PDF viewing experience such as: highlight links, how to scroll pages, page zoom and highlight form fields. The options are straight-forward just as the application is.

PDF Expert App StoreI was able utilize all of the features in PDF Expert for iPhone without a hitch. I was easily able to download our monthly security report from my Google Docs account and create bookmarks for the Operations section that pertains to me as well as insert notes for our upcoming meeting. These are all things that I had traditionally done on my computer but now have the ability to take care of on my iPhone.

Overall the usability and simplicity of this application combines with the features make it a must have for those that use PDFs on a daily basis. They have truly changed the way I go about dealing with PDFs on an everyday basis.
