iPad Apps

Disp Recorder

Disp Recorder, the useful screen recording app for iPad and iPhone, is currently on sale for 50% off. It’s down from $9.99 to $4.99.

I just did a post and a video demo of Disp Recorder (formerly known as Display Recorder) a few days ago – and I think it’s impressive to see this app back on the iPad. Before this app came along, iPad screen recording required using AirPlay Mirroring to a desktop PC and a screen recording app on the desktop as well. Now it can all be done on the iPad.

The current sale price is listed as being for a limited time, so now is a great time to grab this app if you’ve got any interest in screen recording on the iPad.

Here’s an App Store link for Disp Recorder.

Evernote for iPad

Evernote – the excellent, feature rich note-taking app for iPad and iOS – has been updated this week, to Version 4.3.

There’s only a single new feature listed in the change list for this update, but what a sight for sore eyes it is:

Start editing a note simply by tapping into the note body

To which I say … Hurrah! Prior to this update you had to type on a little pencil icon to edit a note. For me, that was always by far and away the most annoying feature of the Evernote app. Now you just tap anywhere in a note to start typing, just as in nearly all the other good notes and writing apps for the iPad. This makes it so much faster and nicer to work with.

Evernote was a recent (and long overdue) pick as Best Free iPad App of the Week, and it’s great to see this feature finally addressed.

Here’s an App Store link for Evernote; it’s a free app and a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
