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.

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.

With all the speculation surrounding a possible new Apple Tablet/Netbook, we thought it would be fun to take a look at 52 visually stunning Apple concept products. We’ve broken products down into categories such as Tablets, Netbooks, Notebooks, Desktops, iPod, iPhone and Media Centre.

It’s obviously important to note that none of these products are actually real! That said, there’s no harm in dreaming every once in a while…

The iPhone is a wonderfully designed device, sporting sleek curves and oozing minimalism. Fortunately, the great design doesn’t need to stop there. Ever since the App Store went live, we’ve seen some incredibly attractive software released for the platform.

When the words “financial management” come into mind, I’m sure you aren’t thinking about a fun way to spend your Saturday night. That must be because you haven’t given Cha-Ching from Midnight Apps a shot. Cha-Ching, available on both the Mac and iPhone/iPod Touch platforms. allows you to log your daily transactions, make and keep track of different bank accounts and helps you plan and stick to a budget.

Currently, the Mac version of the software is in its last stages of beta testing before its big 2.0 release. This means that you might run into some slight issues regarding features that have yet to be enabled but are sure to be included in the update. With that in mind, let’s jump right in!
