SnapTax by TurboTax lets you e-file your taxes with your iPhone camera

Gearing up for tax season and looking for the easiest way to get it over with? TurboTax is making tax filing in 2014 as easy snapping a photo with your iPhone. Seriously.

Similar to many banking apps that allow you to take a photo of a physical check to make a deposit, SnapTax app by TurboTax allows you to focus your camera at your W-2 (1040EZ/A) to quickly input most of the important information required for filing your taxes.

After you capture the photo, the app uses optical character recognition to parse out the important information and asks you a few remaining questions and you’re on your way.

This year, TurboTax notes its app is the first of its kind to allow you to e-file your taxes on a mobile device in Spanish making it easier for everyone to take advantage of the app.

Duolingo, the fun language-learning app for iPhone and iPad, beautifully redesigned for iOS 7

Duolingo for iPhone and iPad joined the collection of apps designed with iOS 7 in mind today with the release of Duolingo 3.

Duolingo is a free iOS app that makes learning a second language like Spanish or French easy and fun, and its redesign for iOS 7 is certainly delightful.

We don’t always redesign the app for iOS 7, but when we do, we prefer to go the whole way. From an entirely new look to exciting end screens showing your weekly progress, Duolingo has been completely redesigned for iOS 7. It’s faster, better, and more fun!

You can find Duolingo for free on the App Store.
