Now where was that restaurant that we saw the other day?

Look, I have to tell you, Loc.Book was undoubtedly developed with people like me in mind. It's not that I get lost on a regular basis but, put me in one of those massive Westfield type multilevel shopping complexes that was probably designed by that Gruen fellow, and I'm a complete mess. Half the time I can't even remember which floor the shop I want to visit is on let alone it's location. I could use the store locator, I guess, but I could also use an app like Loc.Book to find my way back directly to the store I'm looking for. Loc.Book is a GPS-based geolocator that will store your ...  More

Track your friends and kids and make sure they get there safely

I'm not quite sure if this tracking application for iOS will be regarded as a good or a bad thing. To some it might feel to be a bit of an imposition to have one's every moved tracked but for others it might just be the lifeline that gets them to their arranged destination on time. Buddy Safe uses GPS tracking to track the progress of 'buddies' (or your kids) and make sure they don't trip up on their journey and get lost. While much of Buddy Safe's intended audience lies with children going to and from school it might prove just as useful when on holiday in unfamiliar territory.   ...  More

A more social kind of LinkedIn

Do you remember the fuss a while back when Facebook started to roll out their 'find friends nearby' feature and promptly had to withdraw it because they might have 'borrowed' the idea from elsewhere? Well, Friendthem had the patent on the idea and here is that very same (with a few improvements) app which now works in connection with Facebook but independently. I guess the big difference between Friendthem and other social networks is that while the likes of Facebook and Twitter are great at connecting with people they lack a little impetus when it comes to continuing those connections. ...  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

How to see your road maps when you're not online

MapsWithMe is what could be described as an almost masterpiece as a travel app for iDevices and iOS. Don't get me wrong - I love the idea of having a map app that you don't need an Internet connection to access and, believe me, there are times in my road tripping life that it would come in really useful to have a detailed map in front of me whilst negotiating the one way streets of San Francisco with only a wifi iDevice to navigate by. How this travel guide and GPS works is by downloading the relevant map and detailed city guides to your device before you leave.   So lets look at the ...  More

A social photoshare network to use on the go

Realikety is a very interesting new take on the social networking concept that works on the theory of 'liking' anything you see on your travels or just out on the street. Whereas Facebook gives you the ability to 'like' videos you love, photos you want to share and witty and clever updates from your friends, Realikety adds a new spin by getting you to snap photos of things and places you find while on the go, set the location of your shot, add relevant information to go with it and post it for friends to enjoy, react and comment on.   The snappily named Realikety was put together by ...  More
