All the dirt on growing your own veggies and herbs

We are constantly bombarded with facts suggesting that organic and home-grown vegetables are tastier and are better for us than their shop bought equivalents. Certainly, if you've ever grown your own tomatoes and plucked one off the vine to eat for breakfast you will believe it, for sure. If you have spare land and live outside the city it may be possible to create a vegetable garden to supply you with the food that you need but it's not quite so easy if you live in a high rise or have a small block in the city. Sprout it is a fully customized, lifestyle, food and gardening application for ...  More

An interactive and fully searchable app that tells you everything you need to know about liquor

This is an app that the alcohol lovers amongst us will truly adore. Not so much the beer and wine lovers because here we are talking about the wonderful world of the distilled liquor. The Wikipedia description of a distilled alcoholic beverage says that it is produced using ethanol to distill fermenting grain, fruit or vegetable product. So, what we are talking about here is vodka, gin, baijiu, tequila, rum, whisky, grappa, brandy and cognac, slivovitz, pisco and soju rather than the undistilled fermented beverages such as beer, wine and cider. Distilus is a completely interactive ...  More

Create your own personalized and meaningful eCards

Have you checked out the price of greetings cards recently? It's no wonder that so many people choose to use social networks to say happy birthday to their friends rather than their rather expensive paper equivalent. What's more, having looked at some of the examples of physical birthday cards in a shop the other day, let's just say that many of them leave a little to be desired. Happy Birthday Cards by Symbyoz lets you show your family and friends just how special you think they are by creating thoughtful, personalized and really special birthday cards that you can share via your favorite ...  More

A gay dating site with unlimited messaging

It seems that everywhere you look there are online dating apps these days. It's probably a sign of the times that we are just as happy to meet up with someone online as we are happy to meet up in some sweaty bar. It's cheaper, it's safer and you can do it from the comfort of your home. In fact, dating is probably more social now than its never been and dating sites give you a hell of a lot of information about a person before you even get to meet them. On the other hand, however, specific gay dating apps aren't quite so prevalent and some are a little sleazier than others.  Seed is a ...  More

A social community where you can really meet like-minded friends

Is your social network getting you down? I've been saying for some time now that, in order to be able to keep up with what your friends are doing, there is an optimum amount of Facebook friends you can have. Once you get above a couple of hundred it starts to turn into a full time job to keep up with your feed properly. What began as a great social experiment has turned, for many, into a race to the most number of friends - the vast majority of which you never have any contact with. Quantity over quality. Worthy is a social community for iOS that turns the social friendship concept on its ...  More

Can i top up your sun tan block?

With the sun blazing down furiously over many parts of the world right now it may be the right time to think about protecting your skin from its harshness. Skin cancers or Melanomas are responsible for more deaths than any other cancers worldwide these days so it is vitally important that we pay particular attention to skin protection.

The only fitness app with real, live, human, personal trainers

Many of us dedicated to getting our fitness back on schedule tend to go down one of two tracks these days. We either go the whole hog and hire a personal trainer to guide us back to a fitness regime we can handle or we invest in an app so that we can monitor our fitness ourselves. The only trouble there is that the cost of a personal trainer is pretty high and most apps tend to take a 'one size fits all' approach and assume everyone is at the same level of fitness to begin with. truTrainer combines those two different approaches by having real live personal trainers available on your very ...  More

Thankfully, most of us have absolutely no idea of the often devastating effects of stress, panic attacks and poor sleeping patterns. Very often, the three go together.
