I’m amazed how often the question ‘What’s your favorite iPhone/iPad app?’ comes up. Well, for all those who are interested, here’s my current favorite iOS app … and it’s not Angry Birds!

Apple’s making commercials again, but this time they’re really really good. If you’re not sold on picking up an iPhone 5 yet, these ads spotted by Macstories will probably get you stoked.
Each ad has a theme and a one word name. The ads show off different capabilities of the iPhone 5, and I must say that they’re extremely compelling.
