Stop arguing with your housemates about chores and food shopping.

Given the high price of rental residences in major cities it's hardly surprising that there are more and more share houses these days with several people splitting the cost of the rent and household expenses. In many cases, the first time they meet each other is when they move in - especially when we are talking about student accommodation. It's all good fun at first. Parties every night and new friends to get to know. But then comes the crunch when the place starts to get dirty and one person ends up doing most of the cleaning and another gets lumped with buying the food. That's the point ...  More

Save and share small parts of videos rather than having to keep the whole thing

I'm sure that we've all been in a position at one time or another where we've been watching a longish video on YouTube and found a part of it really interesting. So interesting, in fact, that we want to keep it and watch it again later or share it with our friends. The process at the moment seems to be to save the whole video to your playlist or to add it to the "watch later" feature. However, it can get a little annoying when the section that you want to keep is only one or two minutes out of a sixty minute video. When you share it with others, the best you can do is to tell them to tune ...  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

An exciting and addictive role playing game to keep you amused for hours

The Tower Defense (TD) style of video game is a sub-genre of real time strategy games where the idea is to try to stop an invading force from making inroads into your territory by using various fighting methods - and anything else you can get your hands on. I guess the genre began when Atari introduces the game Rampart way back in the early 90's. The graphics have changed a lot over the years but the gameplay is basically pretty similar. Hero TD - Ancient Continent is a multiplayer online role-playing game for Android, Blackberry10 and iOS that proves to be an exciting and addictive ...  More

More background checks, tighter regulations and cooling off periods have all been suggested to try to curb the alarming number of gun related shootings around the world.

Mini Showdown is a beautiful-looking, free shooting game for iOS the gives you real-time and realistic duels with fellow shooters and find out who really is the fastest and most ...  More

Take your swimming log to the pool with you and track your routine

When it comes to daily exercise there are many different ways of getting your body going whether it be first thing in the morning or at any other time of the day. Some will go for a jog first thing and some will choose things like yoga or fit into a trip to the gym to keep their body in trim. Some have the luxury of having a public or private swimming pool and will indulge in a regular swimming program. While there are plenty personal trainers (not to mention heaps of health and fitness apps) to check your progress at the gym or in your routine, there are not so many ways of tracking your ...  More

Perfect accounting and billing for small business and sole traders

One of the most difficult aspects of running a business seems to be billing and paperwork. I've lost count of the number of mistakes and stupid accounting procedures that I've seen over the years - more often from big companies rather than small ones. Those careless billing problems can cost you customers. So, how on earth can small businesses and freelancers get their accounting act together when the bigger ones, with their much bigger budgets, manage to screw it up on a regular basis? Well, Zervant is an invoicing, accounting and time tracking application that seems to be a pretty good ...  More

A great set of free photo edit tools to create GIF's and other cool stuff for your blog

Readers who tune into our reviews on a reasonably regular basis will know just how much we love a good photo editing application. Usually they tend to be a single function set of tools that will use different filters to turn your photos into something special. Quite often, these days, I will use two or maybe three different apps to achieve some truly artistic masterpieces - well, I think so, anyway. So it's kinda rare when a free app comes along that gives you multiple photo editing tools. Viscomsoft Social Galleries is a photo sharing and photo editing tool that gives you over twenty ...  More

Move into the 21st Century with this next gen lesson planner for teachers of all kinds.

The image that immediately comes to mind when thinking of planning and preparing teaching lessons is of the kindly teacher, laboriously trudging through large amounts of paper and mapping out the direction of the upcoming lesson. Oh, hang on...that was a Dickens book i was reading. Well, its either that or you can update it to the 20th Century by imagining the same scenario with its modern day equivalent - Excel spreadsheets and Word documents. Now it's time to move on from those efficient but bad old days and move into the next generation of lesson planning. Common Core is a great new ...  More
