Lifestyle apps

Document, share, list and rank all your favorite things and places

There was a time when folks used to always have a small notebook or a diary tucked away in their pocket wherever they went. It was vital to keep a note of all those important things like phone numbers and addresses and to write stuff down that you didn't want to forget. At home they might keep a scrapbook to paste in photos and the like or a travel log if they'd been on vacation. I wonder if anyone does that stuff anymore - especially when you can keep all that stuff and more on an app for your iPhone in your pocket. The curiously named aRoo is a new lifestyle app for iOS where you can ...  More

Discover museums, culture, historic places and the weird and wonderful wherever you visit

If i asked you which was the more popular entertainment for American families between major league sporting events, theme parks and museums, my guess is that you wouldn't pick museums. They have long been considered to be a bit old hat and stodgy and full of nothing but ancient relics. Surely no kid would want to see that, would they? Well, according to a 2011 study, there are over 850 million visits to museums each year. That's just about the same amount as the other two put together. Museums are actually very popular, it seems.  More

A modern day Cyrano de Bergerac for your pocket for texting success

Much of the stigma has gone out of using online dating apps over the last couple of years. 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

A simple, fun and free app to remind you of everything that you need to do

Aaahh, life used to be so simple, didn't it? It used to be that we could rely on our memory, a diary or copious post-it notes plastered all over the fridge to remind us of the things that we or our family and friends need to do. But these days we all seem to be so busy that it's hard to keep on top of everything. Whether it be birthdays and anniversaries, upcoming bills, business meetings or scholastic events, it's a pain if they get lost in your busy schedule. What we all really need is a personal assistant to guide us through the day.  More

Over 40,000 audiobooks at the best prices

The debate between kindle readers and physical paper book readers has raged for a few years now and avid readers seem to have divided into one or the other. Ebook readers love the ease and simplicity of reading a book on their kindle without having shelf loads of books cluttering up their homes while paper book readers love the pure pleasure of holding a book in their hands rather than a piece of plastic. Personally, I think the kindle has a fair way to go to fulfill its obvious potential. However, there is another way of 'reading' books that seems to have got lost in the argument. The ...  More

Character building for 10-14 year olds using goals, rewards and consequences

We often hear talk about kids today having a much easier life than we had and how good and moral behavior seems to have gone out of the window. Of course, that isn't true for all children but, as our lives have got busier and more complicated, it's probably safe to say that a strict regimen of manners, discipline and maybe even moral standard has slipped away a little over the years. Many of us spend more time haranguing and arguing with our kids than we do in guiding them into, what is, a very competitive and harsh world. To address this problem, developer and parent of four Todd Duplain ...  More

An artistic showroom on your mobile device

For some reason, there is a problem with most art related online apps and websites. Basically, most look rather pitiful. I can only assume that they are put together by the artists themselves who have no idea how the online audience views them. I guess they use the other side of their brain. So, when a beautiful online art gallery like The Ether Gallery comes along and features a bunch of extremely talented artists and sculptors - it could be time to sit up and take notice. Take your time, relax and click your way through an array of inspiring and powerful art that includes sculptures, ...  More

Document everything that happens on your important days

One can only assume that the reason this app is named Kennedy is because of the events on November 22nd 1963 in Dallas, Texas when US Resident John F Kennedy was assassinated. It is said that anyone who was aware of what was going on that day - no matter where they were in the world - can remember exactly where they were standing and what they were doing. And that's a mirror of what this journal app for iOS does too, really. It lets you capture a moment in time and automatically notes everything that happened on that day including your location, the weather and the newspaper headlines. ...  More
