The best place to gossip anonymously

There's a little bit of voyeurism in all of us it appears. Theres nothing more exciting for some than to hear or share a bit of gossip with others. Youve only got to have watched one episode of the tv series "Pretty Little Liars" to realize that. Many of us also seem to like to be fairly anonymous ourselves - especially when we are sharing our private information with others. Local Anonymous is a free, social sharing application for iOS where you can post and share your secrets and confessions in your local area without anyone ever finding out who you are.   Local Anonymous is your ...  More

Get locals to tell you what's good through social networks

I have a friend who runs a cafe locally and I checked out the online reviews for the place the other day. They varied from ultra-complimentary (probably written by themselves) to ultra-critical (probably written by people from rival cafes.) To be quite honest, it didn't tell me much about the place. The whole concept of reviews needs to be thrown back on the people that matter most - customers - and Sooligan is a social review site with a difference. It takes it's 'reviews' from the comments on the pages of social media to give you a much broader overview of the localized places around ...  More

Listen to what your social interest network has to say

Secretly, whether we like to admit it or not, there is a little bit of voyeurism in most of us. We want to know what is happening around us. It might be listening into someone's conversation about the restaurant they ate in last night or hearing someone else's opinion about a new store that has just opened. But eavesdropping in on other people's conversations is probably not the best or the most reliable way of finding out what is being said. Evzdrop (which is pronounced eavesdrop) is a new type of app that lets you tap into what people are saying about the places around you. It may be ...  More

It's like a QR Code for location tracing

While GPS is a marvelous thing there are times in life where it's not quite enough to get you to the place you are looking for. In a business sense, it is vitally important that your customers can find you easily. POCode was designed originally when the developers were having a meltdown while trying to find a potential customer using only their GPS to find them. They longed for a map or some other foolproof way of locating their destination and came up with the idea of POCode. Think of it like this. If there are barcodes for things to purchase, and QRCodes for identifying documents and ...  More

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

Localize your social media posts

The way you share information through your social network can, at times, be a little flawed. It's all very well if the story you are trying to tell is specific to your social friends but what about if you want to get your message across to people in your local area for advertising or promotional purposes? You could fiddle with your Facebook settings and send your message to local friends and hope they pass it on or you can turn to something a little more specific. Sunlize offers a different way of spreading the word through your local area and turns this social sharing application into a ...  More

Search your local community for tradespeople

It used to be your local paper or phone book that you went to when you needed a local tradesman or service but sadly, the local paper probably went out of business and the days of the phone book are well numbered.

Skillendar is a community social network application that lets you look into your own neighborhood to find services and skilled tradespeople that might not have a Main Street shop at their disposal but have all the skills to complete the job you need done.
