Financial megalith Intuit, the company most famously know for its Quickbooks application, has picked up independent financial mac app maker Midnight Apps and its popular Cha-Ching product. What does that mean for Cha-Ching users? It’s not altogether clear yet, but given Intuit’s history with their users after the Mint.com acquisition, you’d be forgiven for thinking things are about to go downhill with Cha-Ching. (more…)

I’m currently putting the finishing touches on our very first AppStorm book, and I need your help!

We are running a two-minute survey relating to how you use the App Store, your iPhone, and why you purchase certain applications over others. All the information we collect will be anonymously analysed and published as part of the book, to help developers make even better apps for your Apple gadgets.

It would be awesome to have the insight of all our readers included, and we’re running a competition to give away a $10 iTunes Gift Vouchers to five lucky participants.

Please only take part if you do own an iPhone or iPod touch, otherwise our results won’t be quite as accurate as they should be!

All you need to do to enter is fill out our two-minute survey. You’ll have the opportunity to bag a $10 Gift Voucher, and I would be really grateful to hear what you have to say.

The survey will be open for a few days, but get your submission in soon to be sure that you stand a chance of winning. We’ll update this post when we have made the random draw (the competition is running on iPhone.AppStorm as well).

Thanks for reading, and best of luck!

Out of the box, your Mac is a relatively secure piece of equipment. It comes with a firewall, is more-or-less immune to viruses, and can be locked in a number of different ways. Airlock is a new piece of software that aims to add an extra level of security, in conjunction with an iPhone or iPod touch.

Whenever your phone moves a certain distance away from your computer, Airlock can automatically lock the screen. When you return, your Mac unlocks automatically. It’s a very simple idea, but one that could prove useful in many different circumstances.

With cloud storage becoming more popular, cost effective, and accessible, many different tools and services seem to be cropping up in the market almost every week. Dropbox remains one of the most popular services available (and we’re big fans of it at Mac.AppStorm!).

If you are not familiar with Dropbox, it’s probably worth reading our article “Delving Deeper Into Dropbox” before you continue.

A few weeks ago, Dropbox revealed their iPhone application to make your file syncing life even easier. It’s completely free, and available from App Store. Today I’ll be walking you through the setup process, and explaining what the mobile Dropbox app is capable of.

There is no doubt Twitter and Facebook have changed the landscape of communication, both between individuals and between companies and their customers, and the list of ways for interacting with or through both platforms keeps growing day by day.

Well, on every list there is a first item leading the way, and in the crowded space of Twitter clients, there is one king second only to Twitter’s very own web. Today we’ll take a look at TweetDeck, a multi-platform Twitter client built on AIR and also available for the iPhone, which has some very nice Facebook and MySpace features up it’s sleeve.
