Recently we profiled a tremendous, free, app for using Microsoft Lync online on the go, but there’s a way to further enhance productivity when using the app and your iPad. Add InterCall Reservationless-Plus Conferencing.
Combining Microsoft Lync and Reservationless-Plus allows one to take a standard conference call and enhance the experience for hosts and participants alike.
To begin using this service, you need to download the “Microsoft Lync 2010” app for the iPad or iPhone and sign up for InterCall’s cloud-based audio conferencing.
Microsoft Lync Online, offered by Inte

rCall, combines industry-leading audio conferencing platform with Lync enabling participants to join via for PSTN phone lines and providing enhanced in-call controls.
There are two ways to get started:

Work with an InterCall sales representative to provide all the necessary information to set up new owners and add InterCall Reservationless-Plus to an existing account. Your representative can then provide you with a spreadsheet detailing all of your company’s owners and their conference codes.
Work with your new InterCall owner ID and web PIN to create an account at https://www.intercallonline.com. Then call account management at 800.374.2441 to have your account enabled as an administrator.

By becoming an administrator on InterCall Online, you can create accounts for new owners, assign vanity conference codes and pull reports on accounts and usage.
Once you’re ready to go, there are only 4 simple steps to uploading your account details into the Microsoft Portal:

Log into your Microsot Online Portal and select “Manage” under Lync Online in the Admin Overview section.
From the Lync Online Control Panel, select “Manage” under dial-in conferencing.
Select the users you want to edit by clicking their name.
Select “InterCall” from the drop-down menu, enter the conferencing details and click “Save.” In the “Toll Number Field” use numerical format only.  Do not use special characters such as hyphens, periods or parenthesis.

Once you’ve completed those steps, you’re ready to roll! It’s really that simple, but should you have any issues InterCall is there to help you by phone or email.
If you use Microsoft Lync with your iPad and want to maximize both while staying connected regardless of where your travels may take you, add InterCall today.

By now you've probably seen the movie Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol or at least the trailer. In one of the scenes Tom Cruise seeming barely escapes death by a flying car that crashes to the ground right behind him. We all know that these effects are often done with green screen and CGI, but what if you could do these kind of effects right on your iPhone with a few taps of your finger. That's exactly what Action Movie FX allows you to do. You fire up the App, choose your effect, record your scene in the App and then choose where in your clip's timeline you want the

effect to happen. Tap a button to process the video and you're done! The saved movie will be 720p resolution even on an iPhone 4s that can record in 1080p.
Here's one that I did last night while setting up for my event

I was blown away by the quality of the overlay considering that I had to do absolutely no keying on my own. What's even more amazing is that the App is FREE! Once you have your processed video you can save it to your Camera Roll, Send it via email or post it on Facebook right from the App. Of course once it's on your Camera Roll you can upload it to just about any other service or App such as YouTube. The App comes with three scenes, "Missile Attack", "Car Smash" and "Demolition Rock". There is an option to do an in-app purchase to buy more effects. However, to date I've not been able to get the store to load in the App. Once it does I'll gladly buy some more effects at $0.99 each.
UPDATE: The FX store finally loaded in the App and there are 4 more "2 Packs" of effects to choose from (8 total effects) at $0.99 per 2 pack.

You can get Action Movie FX for FREE here from the

Ringier Studios Champions League: True Passion, Big Business is an iPad app to be avoided. It’s one of the very worst iPad apps I’ve seen in any category.
This will not be a comprehensive review because this app turned me off and pissed me off so much that I could not force myself to spend enough time with it to do one. Yes, it’s that bad, and worse.
Strike 1, 2, and 3 against it: when you first open this app (after it has been downloaded and installed from the App Store) you get to a splash screen and a download status bar starts. The app is not ready to go after being install

ed; not anywhere near ready. The status bar shows that it needs to download 380MB of something, there’s no indication of what. That’s a bad enough start, but then you get the better news – you cannot do anything at all in the app while you wait on the download, and the download is slower than slow.
What’s slower than slow, you might ask. Right around TWENTY MINUTES. Yes, you read that right. You launch this app and there is nothing whatsoever to do in it until you wait 20 minutes to have content downloaded.

In the iTunes App Store there are plenty of iPad apps designed for productivity, but those that stand out for their ability to truly do so are in shorty supply.  Investing in one of these apps only to find you’ve made a poor purchase is a horrible feeling.
PDF Forms is different, in a grand way, giving one absolute control over your PDF files.
What PDF Forms offers is the ability to work with PDF documents and forms, commenting on PDF documents, completing forms, signing legal documents and sharing processed PDF documents via email or Dropbox.
Other features include:
Read More

Get PDF documents from any application using Open In, from iTunes or Dropbox folders
Manage PDF documents using folders
Sign legal documents (contracts, notices, etc.)
Fill out various forms
Mark and comment any text or image in any PDF document
Split any PDF documents into separate PDF files
Share ready PDFs via e-mail or Dropbox

My favorite feature of the app is the signature pad option.  All one has to do is save a copy of your signature for later use on PDFs. Your saved signature can be resized and placed in the required area of any PDF form or contract with couple of taps.
Simply put, PDF Forms for iPad is a great way to edit PDF documents. For all who regularly work with PDF files, PDF Forms is a must-have iPad app.
