Shoot down those bad grannies before they fireball all of us

Well, here's a new one. As far as I can remember, we haven't had a game with marauding grannies shooting fireballs at us before! Grannies are meant to be kind and gentle creatures who make cakes and look after us when our parents aren't around, aren't they? Mind you, one of mine did used to kick me under the table when I was a kid so I guess there is a bit of a precedence there. So...back to the game...  More

The ultimate digital vehicle inspection app for motor vehicles and fleets

For many years, motor mechanics have tended to be one of the last bastions of old school technology. The image of the overall clad worker covered in grease and oil is one that most of us are very familiar with. At the end of a car inspection we are handed a sheet of paper (often also covered in oil and grease) with hand written notes on it that are often hard to decipher. That's if they can find them, of course. Mechanics file keeping has never been particularly brilliant at the best of times. From my experience, most of their extensive knowledge is in their head rather than in a filing ...  More

Help find stolen vehicles and make money at the same time

Amazingly enough, it's reckoned that between 700,000 and 1 million vehicles are stolen every year in the US, depending on which figures you believe. Just think about that figure. To make it easier, we'll do the stats on the lower figure. At 700,000 that's nearly 60,000 per month, close to 14,000 per week or damn near 2,000 vehicles per day. You've got to think that law enforcement is fighting a losing battle with those kinds of figures. Clearly, there just aren't enough police on the streets of America and they need a hand. So, both this reviewer and an enterprising and innovative app ...  More App Mar 20th 2019

Why buy audiobooks when you can rent them?

I guess it was really only a matter of time before renting audiobooks was an option. It happened many years ago to the music industry before the digital revolution kicked in. Back when that happened though, you had to physically take yourself to a music rental store and hand over your personal details and a small fee to take home your vinyl, cd or cassette tape. At the time, record companies were incensed because renters would generally take their goodies home and copy them so they could 'own' them forever.  More

If you're looking for the cheapest and most reliable international phone calls, look no further

When you create a communication app with an aim to save customers money on overseas phone calls and you stick on a tagline that says that you 'want to be the cheapest calling app' you know that you've got a lot to live up to. The truth is, there are a squillion apps out there that all claim to be the cheapest on the market. However, when one does come along with that tagline and you find out that the developer has been working at Telecom for over fifteen years and has contacts galore all around the globe, it might be time to sit up and take a little more notice.  More

Ah-ha, me hearties. A challenging game where you must sail your ship through hazardous waters

When I was a kid I lived in a small seaside town where nothing much really happened. Every year, however, a travelling fair would turn up to provide entertainment for the townsfolk. There'd be the usual mix of typical carnival style rides and games to spend our money on. Most of the games were pretty easy to play - capturing plastic ducks with a hook and flipping ping pong balls into a fishbowl - but there was one game that was almost impossible to beat. It was called Buzz Wire. It was a 'steady hand' game with the aim being to guide a grip mounted loop through a wire maze without touching ...  More

An addictive and fun game thats taking the internet by storm

It never ceases to amaze me just how many people play games on their phones as we all commute to and from work each day. It's hard not to peek over a shoulder and watch as their fingers and brains work overtime in the morning and evening travels. Games like Candy Crush and Angry Birds are still pretty popular but there's always the odd one that surprises me because I haven't seen it before as I 'eavesdrop.' Sometimes, you see a game that looks like it could be the next 'big thing' and that's where this games comes in.   More

Automate your friends so you never miss their birthday again

There was a time in life when we had all this information safely tucked away in our brain. We could remember people's street addresses, their phone numbers, their birthdays. It was all in our heads. I can still remember telephone numbers that I had many, many years ago. These days we are all so busy and pre-occupied so we have our mobiles to remind us of some of the things that are important. We don't have to worry about street addresses anymore because nobody sends letters but phone numbers and birthdays are essential.   More

Find the best localised social media, discounts and deals worldwide

You know, I'm always appreciative of a new method of getting one's advertising material across to the general public. Advertisers have tried so many different methods over the years but they generally get thwarted by the majority of their intended audience - much of the time on principle. With a lot of app advertising these days, you can pay a small premium so you don't have to see them. But, in reality, all these advertisers want to do is to show you their goods, place a good deal in front of you and save you a bit money. To put it bluntly, advertising is a legitimate part of everyday ...  More
