Excellent free appointment scheduling, booking and more for teams of 1 to 100

Even if your business life is hectic, it's more important than ever these days to give customers the impression that you do actually know what you are doing. You know what they say...first impressions are lasting impressions, and all that. It may be mayhem behind the scenes but it's very important that the first contact with customers is a positive one. Even more so if you are an independent practitioner, a tutor, a coach or a small business.  More

An easily searchable database to find the Bible's most relevant passages

Religion in general gets a pretty bad rap these days, doesn't it? Some say that it's on the decline. While a recent Gallop survey suggests that 40% of Americans go to church on the weekends, figures from the church itself put that figure at closer to 20%. That doesn't make it any less relevant to the way of life of millions of people around the world, though. I think it was comedian Steve Martin who said in the film "Grand Canyon" that "the answer to all life's problems are in the movies." Well, to many, the answer to all of life's problems are actually in the bible. It's just a question ...  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

A fully portable autism aid for when you are on the go

According to Wikipedia, Autism is defined as ' a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and verbal and non-verbal communication and by restricted, repetitive or stereotypical behavior.' Sufferers, more often than not young children, regularly have trouble understanding concepts that can generally only be solved using pictures to back up vocabulary and diligent parents will spend hours at home setting up image cards to help kids understand better, the world that they live in. A year or so back, an Italian developer - aided by a team of ...  More

A novel new kind of vampire ebook

Despite the fact that ebooks have taken off to the extent that Amazon's ebooks now sell more digital books than paper ones, I still feel that there is something missing with the format. It's just not the same as picking up a book and reading it from cover-to-cover. The ebook needs to deliver more to convince the rest of us non believers that it has something else to offer besides a kindle. And this iOS application could well be the kind of thing to convince me. Carmilla is a new app by DraculApps (yep, you heard it right) that not only gives you the story of a young vampire girl but also ...  More

Turn your Facebook updates, photos and memories into a real-life coffee table book

It seems kind of ironic to even contemplate turning Facebook into a coffee table book. After all, the most successful social media experiment in history has effectively replaced paper in many cases - especially when it comes to photo sharing. But, how about if I said to you that you could have a beautiful coffee table book filled with all your status updates and photos from your Facebook history. Would you think I was mad? Well, that is exactly what Likebook is. You can have your Likebook - in soft or hard cover - delivered quickly to your door and see everything you were doing and feeling ...  More

Use voice command to tell your book what to save

Back in the days of paper books, researchers and serious book readers would always need a note pad handy to jot down relevant and important moments within the text so that it was simple to find those passages again later. Either that or there would be tiny scrawled hand written notes in the margins of the book itself. It used to be quite exciting to buy a second hand book and have someone's detailed notes explaining certain moments and drawing attention to other significant passages. In the 21st century and with the popularity of the eBook at an all time high we have taken on a much neater ...  More

Encourage your kids to read with 3D Pilo

Yesterday we reviewed the first edition of a new interactive 3D storybook application called Pilo. Pilo is a beautifully animated and multi award winning iOS app that, while looking great, is a real winner because of its storyline as much as its look. Now comes the second release in the series. Pilo2 still carries the same stunning 3D animation but this time the action is in the form of puzzles, music and more interaction to capture a child's attention. Choose a character, dress them up, play musical instruments and get them to dance just by tapping on them. This multi award winning ...  More
