You are hereMonthly archive / November 2010
If you are like me, you are just too busy to keep a diary or journal. Hell, it is hard enough just keep a blog going these days. But what if I were to say that you are already keeping a diary or journal without even knowing it? If you are posting messages to Twitter, updating your status on Facebook, posting your photos to Flickr, checking in with Gowalla, placing videos up on YouTube, etc. you are already keeping a public journal scattered across the net. Now what if you could corral them all together and include private entries and keep it all in your pocket (via the iPhone of iPod touch)?
Outside of a possible coffee run or something of that magnitude, the one place you won't find me on what is known by some as "Black Friday" (the day after Thanksgiving in the States) is at a retail store. That doesn't mean you won't find me on the iTunes App Store looking for a deal.
This Thanksgiving weekend is no exception and it wouldn't be the same without some great app deals for your iOS device (Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod touch). Here are some deals I discovered this year in the Apple iTunes App Store. I may be updating this article if I find more over the course of the weekend, so check back here for possible additions or follow me on Twitter: @LouisTrapani for shout outs about them.

Earlier this week, the DW Podshock Companion App (iTunes link) version 1.1.0 has been submitted to iTunes and we expect it will be available soon. Because it was based on iOS 4.2, most likely it will not be released before Apple releases iOS 4.2 which is due this month. Rumor had it possibly being released today, but there was a problem discovered with the wi-fi functionality in the Gold Master (pre-release) version of iOS 4.2 if so, it would likely mean it would have to be addressed before it is released.
As mentioned in Doctor Who: Podshock 226 and in Doctor Who: Podshock 227, if you are a current Podshock Supporting Subscriber, you can request a promo code for the DW Podshock Companion App (iTunes link). We are limited on how many we have to give out though. Therefore only one code per supporter and they are limited to availability.
Also please note that the free promo code is limited to Podshock Supporting Subscribers in the US. The codes will only work with the US Apple iTunes Store. We tested it in the UK. We are sorry for this limitation.
