The App Store is full of great apps and games but it can be nearly impossible to find gems to choose from. That’s what we’re here for and if you read about you’ll find three apps you probably haven’t heard of, but really should try.
This week’s list of apps includes a great iPad Dashboard app for holding all kinds of information, as well as an app that gives astrophotographers a way to share their images and browse what others have shared. We round things off with an app for bookmarking everything, so you’ll never forget that article you wanted to read.
With that out of the way, let’s dive into some App Store gems.
Dashkit: Free with IAP
The humble iPad is a great device for all kinds of things, but what do you do with your old iPad when it comes to upgrades? Some people trade them, while others put them in a drawer and forget about them. Those folks now have a better option – rearrange that iPad as a dashboard that displays all kinds of information.
DashKit is an app that allows people to create and resize tiles on the dashboard and then fills those tiles with information. what kind of information? All types like RSS feeds, countdown, charts, photos etc. You can also buy in-app purchases and put your email in there.
You can now download DashKit from the App Store (opens in new tab) and it’s well worth your time.
