Call on Bluee for the chepest prices and best voice quality for international calls

Let's face it, everyone loves cheap phone calls, don't they? Even more so if you are traveling overseas where a call back home could potentially cost you a small fortune.  Of course, there are a squillion apps out there that offer 'the best deal in town.' Viber, HiTalk and WePhone all offer great deals but each has it's problems. With some,  it is poor sound quality with no texting option available and with others, their prices are not quite as cheap as you think they should be. Bluee Free International Calls is a new free phone app for Android and iPhone that offers the lowest ...  More

The next generation of customer support and website communication

One of the great things about bricks and mortar retail is the communication and rapport that can be built up between a store and its customers. A few simple words here and there can be the difference between a one-off shopping experience and a regular customer who comes back again and again. This is one aspect of online shopping that tends to get lost. There are so many alternative sites out there delivering similar products and services that customer loyalty is a tricky one to maintain. So, it's nice to see an app coming out that encourages customer interaction and makes the visitor seem ...  More

The only Canadian tax app that pushes you straight to a professional

It's tax time again in Canada. Income tax returns for individuals are due in by April 30th with the self employed needing theirs to be filed by June 15th. Nobody likes paying them but taxes are what makes the world go around. There's no reason, however, not to be sure of getting all your deductions in correctly and minimizing the amount that you pay. Big businesses do it all the time so there's no need to feel guilty about it.  More

Simplify your payroll and chat to your staff

While it should be incredibly simple, there's little that causes disharmony in the workplace more than payroll problems. All your employees’ want is to have their wages safely at their disposal on payday with no glitches, no problems and no stuff ups. Sometimes that’s not quite as easy to achieve as it seems - even more so if your staff are working in remote areas. 'halo pay for business' is South African based and a new style of pay vehicle - backed by Barclays Bank subsidiary ABSA bank - that goes some way to solving those problems.  More

A complete restaurant POS from ordering to billing for your Android

It's a strange thing we are going through at the moment with new startups entering the Main Street retail arena. Whenever I walk down the street in my local town, the biggest changes I'm seeing are plenty of massage and fitness clubs, nail adornment stores, women's clothing stores and new restaurants. Have a look yourself the next time you are in town. It's reckoned that if you are still in business after a year, you are doing pretty well.  So, if you are a new restaurant, it's more important than ever to be using the right point of sale (POS) system to ensure you are running ...  More

Dont let just any Tom, Dick or Harriett have your real mobile number

One of the more painful things about giving out your mobile phone number to people that you don't really know is that you are instantly vulnerable. If it’s a business that has your number, the chances are you'll be getting follow up calls offering 'the deal of a lifetime' for the next few weeks. While that's not so bad if you are at home receiving the call, you really don't want random phone calls while you are at work, out for dinner or - worst of all - when you are driving. DialMask is a very useful phone privacy app for iOS that offers an unlimited amount of substitute phone numbers so ...  More

Keep your notes, lectures and private thoughts locked away from prying eyes

A few years ago I had a friend who had been laboriously plotting a story that he hoped might be taken up as a tv series. He kept it tucked away on his mobile device and worked on it diligently for over a year. I contacted him again a couple of years later after I'd seen the pilot episode of a new series because the plot line bore a remarkable resemblance to his own. He told me that he'd seen the episode and put two and two together and worked out that, while he'd been at a writers’ workshop, he'd left his device unattended and a fellow writer had been able to access all of his notes. The ...  More

A group messaging app that would even make Don Draper proud

Just what the world needs, right? Another messenger app. And what's more, it's called Lemon? Are they kidding? But, don't you remember that advert that Don Draper kept in his portfolio in Mad Men? It was an ad for a new German car called a Volkswagen Beetle and there was one word at the top of the page - Lemon! Well, we all know how big the Beetle got. It just goes to show that there's more to a Lemon than meets the eye. So, what does this Lemon Group Messaging app for Android and iOS have to offer that the others don't? Well, apart from being totally free, very easy to use and fast ...  More

Take the hassle out of conference room bookings

You wouldn't think that there would be too many problems in managing physical conference room reservations, would you? One would figure that you just invite people after checking their schedules and then find a room and work out a convenient time for everyone. There are even models in Outlook and Google Calendar that work on that system. Unfortunately, it's not always that simple. What tends to happen is that some rooms get double booked while others remain empty - causing frustration on all sides. After years of testing, a company in Cambridge, Massachusetts has put together a faultless, ...  More

Collaborative data visualization thats easy to use, cost effective and all in one platform

When the app revolution got up and running a few years ago, most of the better apps coming onto the market tended to be rather socially oriented. While there was the odd app specifically made to make business life easier there was very little to help the small businessperson and give them some of the same advantages that big business - with their huge resources - benefited from. Of late, however, there has been a plethora of business apps that go some way to levelling the playing field and giving small business the chance to compete with the big boys.  More
