Add live chat to your site for instant customer support

One of the things that we all seem to remember about dealings with a business is the way they handle their customer service. While we expect a business to do what they do well, it's often how they handle things when something goes wrong that is the thing that most gets our goat up, as my mother used to say. They reckon that, for every one person that complains about a service you offer, there are another six who will simply tell their friends. So when a problem crops up it would be good to nip it in the bud early on and Userlike is a CRM that offers a very professional live chat feature ...  More

Easy 911 contact for the hearing impaired

There are over two million burglaries in the US each year and, in about half of those cases, there is someone in the house when the perpetrator gets in. So, what do you do? Call 9-1-1, obviously. But when we throw in the equation of hearing impaired people at home it gets even scarier. There are some 30 million hearing impaired people in the US for whom SMS texting is not an option as it is not supported by most US 911 centers. Advanced911 comes to the rescue with this security and tracking application for iOS that lets you send an instant message and your location details to participating ...  More

Keep in touch with friends and colleagues in real time

When you think about it, Glassmap owes as much to the Starship Enterprise as it does to evolving geolocation technology. All this comprehensive GPS and communication application needs to complete it is a button that says "Beam me up Scotty" and it would fit nicely on Spock's utility belt. Glassmap goes under the title of a geolocation device but, in reality, it's way more than just that. Not only does it let you share your exact location with friends but there are also tools to share photos in real time, co-ordinate meetings, chat messaging and VoIP. In fact, pretty well everything you ...  More

Apps for the Socially Awkward

Guest post from Zach Beattie, Rockupied LLC. Let's face it: not everyone is a social butterfly. For years we have put the spotlight on apps that make social interaction more prevalent- apps that allow people to talk more, tweet more, comment more, and even find their friends at a downtown bar. But where are the apps for the socially awkward? What good is knowing about that party if you are too nervous to talk to your crush when you get there. Traditionally, gamers and developers have been considered part of this elusive demographic, the people who stumble upon their words and get sweaty ...  More
