Keep up with your team's HipChat and Slack progress wherever they are

For quite a few years now, businesses have been using HipChat as a communication method so that their teams can keep in touch with each other wherever they are in the world. It's basically a web service for internal private chat and instant messaging but also features cloud based file storage, video calling, searchable message history and inline image viewing. Of late, there have been several other services that have jumped on board with similar models. The most popular of these newbies has been Slack. Both services are great at keeping teams connected whether they be in Kathmandu, ...  More

Both a unique marketing tool and a fun photosharing surprise

Rickrolling was a phrase that came about because of a unique piece of music marketing some years ago. Some genius marketer came up with a 'bait and switch' concept that provided a hyperlink being triggered when a person clicked on an interesting picture. Rather than the link taking them where they were expecting to go, it took them to a music video by British singer Rick Astley and his hit single "Never Gonna Give You Up." People who clicked were known as rickrollers. The campaign was hailed as an innovative - if rather sneaky - marketing success and had the effect of rejuvenating ...  More

A great looking movie app for recommendations and info

Back in an earlier life I ran DVD and video stores. Good ones too, if I do say so myself. They were stores where you could come in and talk to the people behind the counter and walk out with a great film that you might or might not have heard of. You could rely on those kinda stores to provide you with good knowledge and excellent film recommendations because we knew what we were doing and we loved movies of all kinds.   More

Over 40,000 audiobooks at the best prices

The debate between kindle readers and physical paper book readers has raged for a few years now and avid readers seem to have divided into one or the other. Ebook readers love the ease and simplicity of reading a book on their kindle without having shelf loads of books cluttering up their homes while paper book readers love the pure pleasure of holding a book in their hands rather than a piece of plastic. Personally, I think the kindle has a fair way to go to fulfill its obvious potential. However, there is another way of 'reading' books that seems to have got lost in the argument. The ...  More

Security for your computer with added locate and alert features

You'd think we'd have all learned our lesson these days about computer security. While Edward Snowden's efforts are probably out of the leagues of most people, it does seem rather silly to leave our work computers unlocked and vulnerable when we are away from our desk or when we go home at night. That's why the Gatekeeper Chain (or GK Chains) app was created. It lets you auto-lock and unlock your computer when you walk away and toward it...amongst other things. Gatekeeper - Locate and Alert is an Android and iOS app that works in conjunction with the GK Chain and offers additional features ...  More

Answer your customer queries immediately by putting a live chat widget on your website

Without a doubt, one of the most frustrating things about dealing with businesses is trying to communicate with them. Whether it is dealing with an automated telephone system where you have to press countless buttons just to reach a human being or simply being kept on hold for ages listening to bad Kenny G musak. It's not an ideal situation. Big business does have the benefit of having plenty of staff to answer queries but, if you are a small organization, you generally aren't afforded that luxury. Pure Chat is a live chat application for iOS and Android that lets you place a fully ...  More

The best way to protect your 'sensitive' mobile photos and data from leaks and scandals

Privacy on our mobile phones has been much discussed over the last few years. Whether it be the 'theft' of photos or personal details, it's probably even more of a problem now than it was two years ago - and we still haven't really come to grips with it. Many of us are lazy with our devices and they are often left hanging around unattended for anyone to pick up and view. The solutions have often been weighty, clumsy or expensive apps that are inconvenient to use and can offer up as many problems as they solve. Privacy Lock is a new privacy application for Android that enables you to lock ...  More

A customizable and unique weather app where you only see what you want to see

Being a bit of an artist in my spare time, I've been looking at a lot of clouds lately. The most amazing thing about them is that, apart from their basic atmospheric structure, every single one of them is completely different. Unfortunately, most of the apps that track and inform us about our weather, tend not to be quite so unique. Here is one that takes its name from one of the most beautiful cloud formations up there and offers something a little more bespoke. Cirrus One has been in development for a number of years and finally gets its chance to add a bit of sunshine to the tired ...  More
