While it may be Apple's newest object of affection, iPad mini is a far cry from being a tablet that can be considered to boast the features of the latest-and-greatest in such a competitively over-saturated market. Ironically, iPad mini misses quite of a few of the marks that its 9.7" counterpart set itself and manages to surpass. While iPad for the most part makes other tablet efforts look embarrassing, iPad mini starts behind the race of the oft-desired features that makes a tablet cutting-edge; even breaking some trends that Apple had kick-started.
iHome recently released their first app for the iPhone and iPod touch called iHome+Sleep [App Store]. It's essentially an alarm clock app with a ton of other features built in, like weather and custom backgrounds. It also has something called Overnight News which shows you a recap of your Twitter and Facebook feeds from the night before. You can even have it tweet for you when your alarm goes off!
There's even more stuffed in there, but I recommend that you check it out in the App Store. It's free!
