My Frame is an iPad application that turns your iPad into a desktop with multiple features to keep you informed and occupied while having your iPad in a stand or frame type position. My Frame is being removed from the App Store due to new policies that disallow iPad app developers to “create their own desktops” within apps.
Here’s what you get with the My Frame iPad app:
Background Wallpaper – uses built in photos of beautify nature scenery or you can import any photos from your album to play in the “photo frame”. Tap left or right side of the screen to slide manually. Set photos to cycle for however often you like.
Weather – just type in a city or zip and nice flat icons with up to 3 day forecast update on top
Clock – A simple large easy to read 12 hour clock on the top right
Notes – A Yellow sticky note to write text messages on for your reference. Only 1 sticky is supported.
Alarm – Set up an alarm with some really nifty sounds built in
iPod controls – Load songs and control them using pause/play next/prev buttons.
Battery Level Indicator – Gives you a visual battery level and percentage remaining
Birthday reminders – in the form of nice message on the bottom.
Twitter updates – Login to your Twitter account and read updates from your friends in a little widget.
Couple of other good features are the ability to go full screen which turns off all widgets, and the ability to turn on/off any of the widgets on the frame. Another cool feature that we’re seeing a lot of photo frames is voice memo’s which would have been nice to have.
Get the app while its still out there. It’s one of those gems that won’t be around long.
