Advice apps

The best free advice you'll get all year

I was just saying to a friend the other day that, apart from singing Stevie Wonder songs, I seem to come up with some of my better ideas in the shower in the morning. I don't think I've managed to solve world peace in there yet but I think most of the things I come up with have more merit than anything that any of the Republican Party presidential candidates have come up with so far. Taking my ideas to the next level is the tricky bit though. How nice it would be to be able to take one or two of those ideas to someone with some serious business experience and ask them a few questions about ...  More

Positive advice from your guardian angels

I think it was Steve Martin who said in the Grand Canyon movie, "The answer to all of life's problems are in the movies." There are a lot of movies out there so I'm sure that's true in general but I don't think any movie has offered up a remedy for world peace just yet. I think we all agree that the big problems can be very difficult to solve but smaller ones might have a chance...given the right advice.

In fact, according to a major recent survey in the US, one in ten of the serious relationships that started in the last decade actually originated from online contact. But as this new way of meeting people comes to the fore, there is also a need to understand that there is a right and a wrong way to communicate textually in a way that encourages the other person. If you don't have the confidence to verbalize on your own then you might want to give an app like this one a chance. Textpert is a ...  More

Everything you ever wanted to know about Japanese animation

No, Anime Doctor isn't a virtual medical app where you can submit your ailments for online appraisal nor is it the home of an online vet. For the uninitiated, Anime began as a Japanese art form from the early part of the 20th Century. However, since the 1960's it has become one of the fastest moving and most influential art movements of our time. Anime, and the  Manga magazines that put it on the street, reflects populist art and design that has not only inspired much of Disney's recent work but often gives an insight into Japanese society that is hidden from other media forms.
