An online game that is better than the original

Along with Go and Chess, Backgammon is reckoned to be one of the oldest games in existence. It was originally thought to have been played about 5,000 years ago and seems to have originated in what today we call Iraq - though it was then known as Mesopotamia. Equally, real-time online backgammon play was just as quick off the mark with the first internet backgammon server coming online being established in 1992. However, the online game has come a long way since those days. BackgammonAce is an exciting, fast and free game application for iOS and Android that turns the traditional board game ...  More

Scan on your smartphone to check if your vegan food really is vegan

Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal-derived products with an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of sentient animals. Dietary vegans (or strict vegetarians) refrain from consuming all animal related products. This means meat, fish, chicken, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived substances. A trip to the supermarket however, often turns into a nightmare for vegans, because of the often confusing ingredient labeling on many of the items. Vegan Scanner lets you scan the item's barcode with your iOS or Android's camera and get ...  More

Turn your spelling skills into an exciting game

I really don't wanna appear to be some crazed grammar and spelling freak here but, I have to admit, there's little that get's my goat up more than poor spelling and grammar on the Internet. I'm sure we've all seen memes on our Facebook feed begging people to acknowledge the difference between there, their and they're. That’s just the half of it. The thing is, standards in spelling have dropped over the years - probably because of a change in scholastic emphasis and, let's face it, bad Internet habits. Many would rather play a mindless online game than spend some time online improving ...  More

The $156 million dollar artist that many have never heard of

valuable painting in the world a few years ago, it turned the art world on it’s head. The reason for this was that it wasn't painted by Van Gogh, Picasso, Rembrandt or even Bacon. It was a painting by the Austrian artist Gustav Klimt and it catapulted this lesser known artist into the big league. However, his work is still not appreciated anywhere near enough outside the critics and his loyal fans. My Guide to Gustav Klimt is a beautiful looking Android art application that offers an appreciation of this great artist's work that has been put together by long time fan, Ken Herman. ...  More

Trap that Crazy Dot with strategy and mind games

There are heaps of free puzzle games available in the Google Play store. They are massively popular. But here is a new kind of puzzle game that's a little bit different from the others. Rather than playing 'join the dots,' Crazy Dot is a strategy game for Android that is more about using the art of collision to win the points and the game rather than using more complicated gameplay. However, don't get the idea that Crazy Dot is a bash n crash mindless experience. It may seem easy-to-play but this game will prove hard to master and you will need to use all your patience, concentration, ...  More

The best, fastest and cheapest way of getting around town

You might have noticed the kerfuffle that has been kicked up about this next generation taxi application - actually they call it private hire and ride sharing - over the last few months. Uber has been featured on the front pages of newspapers all over the world from New York to Australia. So, why is it causing such a fuss? Well, Uber has come into conflict with Government and traditional taxi companies who believe that there are insurance issues and that both cars and drivers should have to be licensed.  But, the fact of the matter is, Uber appears to be a better system and is ...  More

An easy way to assess mental health in young people

This is not a review like the ones that we usually feature here. It's not going to solve your business conundrums and it's not an addictive and fun game that'll keep you amused for a few hours. Child Harm Risk Assessment is a health and wellbeing application for Android that was put together by noted Australian mental health professional Peter Kohleis with the object of laying down all the information needed when assessing the mental health of young people. It offers an easy-to-use, evidence informed clinical assessment of a young person's state of mind and meets all the requirements of ...  More

Digitize and manage your paper content and create editable PDF's

The scanner really hasn't been utilized as well as it could as a legitimate piece of business software. We tend to use them as a peripheral device and rarely as a vital part of everyday business life. But if you are still using a lot of paper documents - whether it be receipts, invoices, bank statements, lecture notes or even the odd recipe that you want to keep for later use - its a hell of a lot easier to keep track of them if you can get your hands on a decent scanning app with some organizing abilities. Smart Document Scanner is a free Android scanning and management app that makes it ...  More

The only mobile Android app that gives you everything that iMovie does ... and then gives you more

They reckon that all those movie directors like Spielberg, Lucas and Scorsese cut their teeth by making short films with their Super 8 cameras. They would get their friends to act out scenes and amaze their parents and friends at film night when they showed their editing prowess with a finished film that took them ages to make. It makes it all the more impressive when you look at an app like this one. KineMaster is a fabulously fast and responsive video-editing app for Android that gives you a virtual film-editing suite at your fingertips. It is the only app out there for Android that ...  More

One of the essential travel apps for travel in Asia

Wouldn't it be great if you could take your very own interpreter with you when you visit a country where you don't speak or understand the language? You could hire one with some local knowledge when you get to your destination but that can be quite pricey and there's no guarantee that your guide will have all the answers you need. What's more, you are going to need them to hang around with you wherever you go. The sensible alternative may be to turn to an iOS and Android travel application like this one. Tripper, or 'The World's Local Assistant' as it is known, instantly connects you with ...  More
