    I’ve tried all these apps, but I still think Inbox Cube is the best email client out there, and it’s FREE!

    • Kevin Patterson

      I’ve tried several email apps as well, but Gusto is my favorite. It does a fantastic job of sorting my files and photos for easy searching and attaching, makes my life easier when I’m on the go!

    im looking for an app that allows you to set up a html signature (a signature that references cloud based images via html). Similar to what Gmail does with its desktop client which also filters into the Gmail app. So the same signature is added no matter where the email has been sent from. Any suggestions?

  • Your websites facebook popup is incredibly obnoxious and guarantees I shall never return.

      Get AdBlocker and you can stop telling everyone how little you know about the web with comments like that one. 🙂

      • I like to give blogs a chance before I block their, you know.. livelihood.
        Publications I like I let through the filters to help them prosper, I might not know much, but at least I don’t cheat people out of their ad revenue when they deserve it. 😉

        • DaleC

          The site doesn’t get paid when I see the content, they get paid when I click on it, so my using AdBlock doesn’t hurt the site I am viewing.

          I don’t “cheat” them out of what they “deserve” either.

            Agreed. People like Greg just try to one up you by taking some skewed up moral high ground.

            BTW Greg: if the ad companies decide they want a pop up, that’s what you’re gonna get from the blogs. Why don’t you instead complain to the advertisers who are paying them? Write them a letter and are their response.

          • Sean

            Someone in the ad space here….. NO they do not get paid when you click and ad. Almost no one pays on or will pay a site owner on a per click basis. And site owners don’t want this because it is sporadic. Their are lots of reasons why this was phased out several years ago. All display ads like you see on the site ares one on a com basis which is per 1,000 impressions/ ad loads. The better targeted their ads are and the better placement they have on the site the more they make on a cpm basis. So crappy sites might make 0.75 per 1000 impressions and great ones make 4.00 per cpm. The more users that block ads the less they potentially make. Site owners understand this which is why they try and make them unobtrusive. So don’t say they get paid when Johnny the site vibist or clicks an ad because that simply isn’t true.

            well that’s still the blog owners problem. you don’t like ad-blockers too bad. don’t serve content freely accessible. make it a paid site, simple. people who are interested will sign up and pay.

    • Hey Greg! Thanks for the feedback and apologies for the (very) late reply. The Facebook popup you were referring to in your comment was removed after a few weeks of testing. The reason for removing was we too hated that, even though it was generating likes for the blog.

    why is it that when i search for something along the lines of ‘seed’ or ‘evo+’, etc., the App Store (iPhone 5, newest iOS for that model) prompts me that the app is not available in the US store?
