    Review: TV Guide Mobile for iOS

    Posted October 6, 2012 - 7:20 am

    TV Guidehas earned cred in television listings--the company has produced a printed guide of TV show listings since 1953. However, the way we watch TV has changed quite a bit since then, and the app that bears the company's name attempts to keep up with the times. If you like a traditional list-type guide to find what's on, TV Guide's free app is a solid choice. The app makes it easy to find what's new and if streaming versions are available, though its social features lack in comparison to other TV companion options.

    Fit Tech: Track your workouts with Physique for iOS

    Posted September 29, 2012 - 7:03 am

    In my high school's strength training class, we used an old-fashioned file and folder method to keep track of our workouts: We opened up our folders, put our workout schedules on one side (complete with little boxes where we filled in how much weight we lifted and the number of reps we did on each exercise), and put a 1RM weight chart (that's one repetition maximum) on the other side. Our weight room had clipboards on the walls, so we could hang our folders while we were working out.

    Google's Chrome browser for iOS is well made and a pleasure to use, particularly if you're deeply entrenched in Google's ecosystem.
