If you tend to share a simple document type of a file then you can use email to do this or you can also instant message it to your friends. But the problem comes when you want to share a file of considerably larger size with multiple friends who are not at all tech savvy to use cloud storage services like Dropbox.

Skype for iPad is one of the most awaited iPhone app after Facebook for iPad. Finally after little hiccup, Skype for iPad is finally available on app store to download. And as expected, Skype on iPad is awesome. Earlier I was using Skype for iPhone on my iPad and experience was not so great.

So far, I’m enjoying this iPad optimized version of Skype and it’s getting into my list of must have iPad apps. Skype for iPad will use both the cameras of iPad. (Front and rear). More over, you can make video calls over Wi-fi or 3G. It also automatically sync contacts with your existing contacts on Skype.

Here are couple of screenshots of Skype running on my iPad2:

Skype keep the design very simple and clean. Though many users are complaining about the tiny buttons within the app. You can quickly navigate to all contacts, online contacts, iPad contacts and other quick links by clicking on tag at the top left. Though Skype should add an option to allow user to create their own list in tags.

Skype-tags-pages Skype-online-contacts

Skype-call-option

Skype-call

Overall I would give 4.5/5 to this app and if you have an iPad, you can’t resist this app. You can download Skype for iPad from Apple app store. <Link>

If you are looking other options for video call from your iPad, I would suggest to look into other options too. If you have installed Skype on your iPad, do let us know how is your experience with it?

App’s photo viewer is also pretty cool, you can view photo albums in a slide show and also download these photos in a flash.

People search for software to recover deleted information all the time. Be it on computers or mobile phones, but we do delete files unintentionally and then regret about it. Hence, there are softwares that can recover deleted information to some extent, it all depends on various things. The Message feature on an iPhone has no deleted messages folder, but certain phones do. If you’ve deleted a message on your iPhone and want to recover it, then you can try UndeleteSMS, which happens to be a new tweak in Cydia.

UndeleteSMS is a paid Cydia app that can recover deleted messages from your iOS device’s Spotlight or SMS database. Though, there is no guarantee that this will work as it relies on crumbs to collect lost data. It’s fairly simple to use as well. You just launch the application and hit the Okay button. Once it collects whatever data it can gain it’s sight on, it’ll output the same in a text form. You can then copy and paste it into your notepad or better send an e-mail to you if the recovered data is very important.

I must however say that you may not want to install this on your device, not that it won’t work, but because it’ll cost you $6.99 to buy. Too much don’t you think? I believe it’s much better to be careful before deleted messages that you don’t want to delete. If you’re really careless, then it may be right to get this app right away. Recovering messages also depends on how quick you respond to “No, I deleted an important message” and then fire up this app. Because once the data is overwritten in Spotlight and other SMS databases, then there’s no point in using this app. Check out the video after the break if you believe you should get this;

What do you think? Are you willing to spend $6.99 for this app? Do you usually keep deleting your important messages? Really?

To gauge the optimal read & write speed of your USB Flash drive sometimes become a hassle because there is a lack of requisite tools and softwares on the internet. Normally the data transfer rate varies drastically during our operations on the PC, sometimes you will observer a data rate of almost 25 MB and in some instances it might drop down to almost 2 MB.

I guess that checking the optimum potential of the read & write speed of your flash drive is quite worth doing because this process can determine that what other PC processes running at back end are hampering your flash drive read & write process. So recently I tried a very useful application that will very much solve this issue, have a brief look at it:

USBFlashSpeed App Features

UsbFlashSpeed.com

To be precise, USBFlashSpeed is a minuscule portable application that provides you with an interface to directly test the read and write speed of USB with different data sizes. It has various tests that calculates the write & read with levels ranging from 1KB to 15MB. The data for both the read & write speed is plotted in real-time on a graph.

How to Use USBFlashSpeed?

 

UsbFlashSpeed.com  Benchmark result

You have to select the USB drive from the applications drop-down menu and just click on the Benchmark button to start testing the read and write speed of your flash drive. A graph will also be generated automatically that will show you detailed graphical and numerical data about the read & write speed. On the graph, the read rate is displayed as a Green line whereas the write rate is displayed as a red line. The result generation can take almost upto 20 minutes and you can’t cancel the test during its running.

Once the application is done with the testing, an automatic URL is generated that will give details of the entire test on the application’s developer website. A summarized version of the entire benchmarking results that is displayed on the website shows the information like USB’s manufacturer’s name, USB model, serial number along with the main constituent i.e. read and write speed of the USB. For the comparison, read and write speeds of different USB’s are displayed for comparison.

The application USBFlashSpeed works well on all the version of Windows. Try it out and Let us know in comments about this applications usability.
