- Pocket Casts ($3.99 Universal) - A podcasting app totally redesigned from the ground up for iOS 7. A brand new interface and tons of new features including those that take advantage of iOS 7's auto download capabilities. It's been a little rocky with the sync service between the iPhone and the iPad, and some issues with the episode downloading but Shifty Jelly has released version 4.1 to Apple and it should be on the app store any day now. Overall, this is a very nice looking app. I have tried Downcast and Instacast on iOS 7 and Pocket Casts won out based on it's UI and feature set.
- Perfect Weather ($6.99 iPhone Only) - A great looking weather app with lots of useful data in a tab format. Check out my review here. Looking forward to a Universal version.
- Pocket Informant ($12.99 Pro / $3.99 PI Go Universal) - Quite simply the most complete and powerful personal information manager (PIM) available on the iOS platform . It received some minor interface updates to look good on iOS 7. One of the really nice features of the latest version is if you enter an event with a location, Pocket Informant will query map data and provide you with a time to arrive at the event location. The Pro version includes calendars, tasks, notes (Evernote too!), and contacts while the Go version has only events and tasks.
- The iOS stock music app once again makes an appearance on my home screen, primary due to iTunes Radio which I am really enjoying.
- TeeVee 2 ($1.99 - iPhone Only) - This is a very slick Television episode tracker and notification app. The app is currently iPhone only but still looks great in 2x mode. The developer is working on an universal version which is hopefully due out soon. TeeVee 2 does have iCloud sync so any new shows that I add on the iPhone version will get synced over to the version running on my iPad. Since I usually have my iPad in front or around me when watching TV, I am keeping this app loaded on my iPad home screen. I would like to see the developer use better data sources for episode information which is supposedly coming in a next update.
