Price drops: Templates for Keynote Pro Free Today


Templates for Keynote Pro is available for free today – down from its standard price of $4.99.

This app is the best source of additional templates for Keynote that I’ve come across. It has over 30 templates and over 650 slides. The slides and templates cover a good range of styles and many of them are a lot more geared towards business presentations than the default set in the Keynote app.

I’ve used these templates Inappropriate several training sessions and for a number of presentations I’ve done – and they’ve always been very well received. If you do a lot of presentations with Keynote this app is a very good one to have around – so grab it for free today if you get a chance.

Here’s an App Store link for Templates for Keynote Pro.

MapQuest App Updated – Adds Traffic-based Routes & More

The MapQuest iOS app has been updated today, to Version 3.2. One of the headline new features in this update is the addition of traffic-based routes – which help you route around heavy traffic, road closures and the like.

Here’s the remainder of the change list for Version 3.2:

Added Stuff
Added helpful tips in the route list, like “Federal Blvd is just past Grove St”
Support for the iPhone 5′s four-inch display
Updated Stuff
You can now pause navigation at any time from the updated navigation display
Pick a fancy new icon for yourself by tapping on your current location icon
Fixed a crash some users were experiencing when using traffic

This is actually an iPhone app that does not yet have a full iPad version, but I’ve used it quite a bit on family road trips and it has always worked very well. In fact it often served us much better than the Maps app did – even back before iOS 6 when the Maps app was still powered by Google Maps.

Here’s an App Store link for MapQuest; it’s a free app.
