Organize and manage your complete digital library and have access wherever you are

Once upon a time, the most frustrating aspect of a meeting away from your office was when you checked in your briefcase for a certain piece of paper only to find that you had forgotten or mislaid it. These days, with a computer close at hand, we seem to have alleviated much of that problem. Away from the computer is a different matter, however. Unless you had the forethought to email yourself the information so that it was easily accessible you still have the same problem. Your information is at one place and you are at another. PDF stash is a cloud-based productivity app that organizes ...  More

Eliminate grammatical mistakes with automatic and easy checking

Let's get this straight from the start. I'm big on good grammar. Anything that can be done to improve the writing capabilities of our students has got to be a good thing. If you are a reader, you will know that there is a big difference between the quality of writing of people like Bill Bryson, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling and John Grisham compared with lesser writing mortals like James Patterson and E.L. James. While we are not suggesting that a grammar checker will propel your prose to those heady heights, Grammar Checker Academic HD is an iOS education and language application that will ...  More

Improve your productivity by doubling your reading speed

I was running a movie rental business a few years ago and the owner asked me one day how we could improve the efficiency of the staff. Rather than sending everyone on a customer relations course my answer was to put them through a typing course. The point of the matter is that it's possible to achieve better results by improving on what you already have rather than taking on more. Legentas is an education application for schools, businesses and lecturers that will teach you how to read at least twice as fast as you do now. This increases productivity as well as looking good on your CV. ...  More

A step by step guide to help you write your first novel

It wasn't that long ago that I had an idea to write my first novel. I was fascinated with the concept of so many celebrities dying at the age of 27 (check it out...I'm serious) and I was thinking f a way of weaving the idea into a credible story. Needless to say, the idea of typing the whole thing out and working out various plot lines with little or no blueprint to work from got to me and the project got put on the back burner. The next thing I know, I'm casually doing an Internet search on '27' and there it is. Someone had written a screenplay and made a movie of the story that I wanted ...  More

Everything you need to run your homeschool

For one reason or another there are more and more parents pulling their kids out of the regular school routine to teach them at home. Its more often when they are younger rather than later in life but it's a growing trend that can't be ignored. Many live in outlying communities and it's not feasible or, in some cases, not possible to get to a school. So, homeschool is a great alternative as well as much as it is for the many that have decided to drop out of the system and reckon they can do it just as well or better themselves. However, even though you are doing it yourself, it doesn't ...  More

30 minute language learning with native speakers
