Perfect accounting and billing for small business and sole traders

One of the most difficult aspects of running a business seems to be billing and paperwork. I've lost count of the number of mistakes and stupid accounting procedures that I've seen over the years - more often from big companies rather than small ones. Those careless billing problems can cost you customers. So, how on earth can small businesses and freelancers get their accounting act together when the bigger ones, with their much bigger budgets, manage to screw it up on a regular basis? Well, Zervant is an invoicing, accounting and time tracking application that seems to be a pretty good ...  More

A great set of free photo edit tools to create GIF's and other cool stuff for your blog

Readers who tune into our reviews on a reasonably regular basis will know just how much we love a good photo editing application. Usually they tend to be a single function set of tools that will use different filters to turn your photos into something special. Quite often, these days, I will use two or maybe three different apps to achieve some truly artistic masterpieces - well, I think so, anyway. So it's kinda rare when a free app comes along that gives you multiple photo editing tools. Viscomsoft Social Galleries is a photo sharing and photo editing tool that gives you over twenty ...  More

30 minute language learning with native speakers

They say that the only way you can really master another language is by conversing with native speakers in a one-on-one situation. This, however, can be an expensive and time consuming business.

Fluently takes advantage of this by offering 30 minute language learning sessions - with native speakers with a shared interest, no less - at probably the cheapest rates that you will find.   Fluentify connects language learners with real ...  More

Move into the 21st Century with this next gen lesson planner for teachers of all kinds.

The image that immediately comes to mind when thinking of planning and preparing teaching lessons is of the kindly teacher, laboriously trudging through large amounts of paper and mapping out the direction of the upcoming lesson. Oh, hang on...that was a Dickens book i was reading. Well, its either that or you can update it to the 20th Century by imagining the same scenario with its modern day equivalent - Excel spreadsheets and Word documents. Now it's time to move on from those efficient but bad old days and move into the next generation of lesson planning. Common Core is a great new ...  More

Find out of school activities easier and realize your true potential

It seems like a parent's life takes a bit of a  back seat as soon as a child comes along and takes up the majority of their time. Trying to further yourself with classes and courses can turn into a bit of a nightmare.

If only Brian Wilson had this music app when he created Pet Sounds

I've listened to a lot of music in my lifetime and I think I can pick a bum note as well as anyone but, by no stretch of the imagination, could I be regarded as an expert on the more technical side of music.

A superior learning management system to evaluate and train your staff

Staff training and evaluation used to be a quite labor-intensive and time consuming activity and generally used to involve bringing in people from outside the business who were trained in the process. This is disruptive for your staff as well as being somewhat costly. While this may be fine for multinationals it doesn't necessarily suit the budget of the smaller organization. SkyPrep is a new cloud-based, online LMS (Learning Management System) application that is designed to train and test your employees simply and easily. Upload all your source material, create tests and discover how ...  More

Train your small business like the big boys

Things are changing for the  better for small business. In the past there has been a bit of a defeatist attitude from them when comparing their opportunities of bettering themselves and their workers against a larger organization. When it came to training staff, the argument has always been that it was too expensive and took up too much time so a more ad hoc approach was taken up. But if the small business person is canny, they can find everything they want as apps and quite often for little on no cost. TalentLMS is one such app that will be of great benefit. This cloud-based ...  More
