Ultra Edit for Mac

Ultra Edit for Mac

One of the few things I’ve been missing when I switched from Mac to PC was a really good text editor. I have tried a bunch of the Mac apps, but I haven’t found any one that I have liked more than Ultra Edit. So, today I’m very happy that I read over at TUAW that Ultra Edit is available in a Mac version. It’s $79.95 and available here:

Broken Sword for iPad – free

Broken Sword for iPad - free

Broken Sword Director’s Cut is currently free for download in the App Store. It’s not my cup of tea regarding games, but it has got nice ratings:

“…this is a must-play game: a latter day blockbuster in a director’s cut form”. The Independent online (5/5)

“An extraordinary example of how to properly remake a classic”. Pocket Gamer (9/10)

So if you got some 600MB to spare on your iPad, go get it!

Facepad for iPad

Facepad for iPad

There’s a shame that there isn’t an official Facebook iPad out yet and other software companies are trying to benefit from that fact. Facepad from Loytr is a free app that is commercialized by showing ads in the bottom of the app.

However it’s really not worth a download. It’s a bit buggy (crashes every now and then), uses a very tiny and blurry font and really doesn’t offer you anything that justifies a download – even though it’s free.

I actually prefer surfing to Facebook through Safari than using this app.

Verdict: Not worth a download.

Read about what’s new inside:

iPad finally launched in Scandinavia

iPad

Tomorrow iPad will finally be launched in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. Many Apple lovers have of course already bought one from abroad (there’s approximately 40 000 iPads already in Sweden according to the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet) but now it’s possible to buy an official iPad. The actual launch will take place in about 20 minutes (30 Nov, 00:00, GMT +1) and some stores have open during the night to start deliver the goods. I guess Apple isn’t to happy about this launch since some of the sites started publishing the information about the upcoming iPad way too early, like MediaMarkt.se.
