We’re kicking off another competition today, to win a copy of Code Collector Pro. We reviewed the application a few days ago, and found it to be a solid solution for managing a library of code snippets and sharing them online.

We have two licenses to give away, and entering is remarkably easy (as always!). All you need to do is become a fan of our Facebook page. We’ll be selecting two of our awesome Facebook fans as winners in one week, on Monday 16th November.

PS. We’re also working on an absolutely huge Christmas giveaway across the AppStorm sites. Full details will be coming soon, but our prize fund is currently at around $6,000 of hardware and software. Stay tuned!

Today we’ll be offering a quick overview of a new iPhone app, Balloons, that caught my eye as a really interesting form of social interaction. Balloons allows you to take a photo or write a message, attach it to a virtual balloon, then send it off around the world. It can then be “caught” by someone in a completely different part of the globe.

When caught, you can add extra content to a message and send it back off into the sky! It’s a fascinating concept, and a particularly unique way of interacting with other iPhone users around the world.

We all know and love Dropbox, the amazing online file storage, backup, syncing and sharing service. It allows you to keep all of your computers in perfect harmony, your documents, music and more in each location.

That’s great, but what if you wanted to remotely control a computer, synchronize passwords, or sync your to-do lists? Dropbox offers a range of extra functionality that isn’t immediately obvious, and today we’ll be showing you how to achieve some of this interesting functionality!

A wide range of different iPhone apps are available for reading news – whether via RSS, or another method. Today I’m taking a look at Broadersheet, a $3.99 iPhone application that aims to be your portable electronic newspaper, aggregating the content that interests you most from a range of different sources.

A few features make it stand out from the crowd: it’s intelligent, and learns which stories interest you most as you rate them, you can read stories offline, and also view a simplified version of a website – optimised for the iPhone’s screen.

I’ll be looking at these features in greater detail, and assessing whether it’s a good solution for reading news on-the-go.

Delicious is a fantastic service for organizing, sharing, and finding great bookmarks on the web. However I’ve never thought much of the bland appearance of the site and as a result I’ve never felt the urge to sign up. Until now.

After finding out about Delibar, a new Delicious client for Mac from Shiny Frog, I’ve realized the potential of Delicious bookmarking and Delibar feels like the perfect way to do it. Delibar lets you search, share, discover, and organize your Delicious account right from within the Menu Bar on your Mac. This review will take a look at exactly what Delibar is capable of.

It’s nice to be able to memorize multiple lines of code, and I applaud you if you’re able to do so. For others like me, though, remembering every different snippet of code can be a challenge. You could always refer to your 300-page programming book, but that’s a lengthy process to repeat on a regular basis.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a library of your most important code snippets always available on your Mac? If the answer is yes, Code Collector Pro could be a good solution. In this article, we are going to take a detailed look at Code Collector Pro and it’s companion web application, codecollector.net.
