Meeting New Online People 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

Save and share small parts of videos rather than having to keep the whole thing

I'm sure that we've all been in a position at one time or another where we've been watching a longish video on YouTube and found a part of it really interesting. So interesting, in fact, that we want to keep it and watch it again later or share it with our friends. The process at the moment seems to be to save the whole video to your playlist or to add it to the "watch later" feature. However, it can get a little annoying when the section that you want to keep is only one or two minutes out of a sixty minute video. When you share it with others, the best you can do is to tell them to tune ...  More

Secure and manage all your social networks from one place and with one password

If there's one word that comes to mind regarding our online activities over the last few years it is security. Not only are there people from as far as the Ukraine and China trying to access our private information but there's also been plenty of occasions when friends, family and co workers have felt the compulsion to see what we are up to on our devices. I've lost count of the number of times that I've seen an embarrassing post on a friend's social media account which has obviously been entered by someone other than themselves when they have left their mobile unattended. What's more, we ...  More

Take the hassle out of conference room bookings

You wouldn't think that there would be too many problems in managing physical conference room reservations, would you? One would figure that you just invite people after checking their schedules and then find a room and work out a convenient time for everyone. There are even models in Outlook and Google Calendar that work on that system. Unfortunately, it's not always that simple. What tends to happen is that some rooms get double booked while others remain empty - causing frustration on all sides. After years of testing, a company in Cambridge, Massachusetts has put together a faultless, ...  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

An exciting and addictive role playing game to keep you amused for hours

The Tower Defense (TD) style of video game is a sub-genre of real time strategy games where the idea is to try to stop an invading force from making inroads into your territory by using various fighting methods - and anything else you can get your hands on. I guess the genre began when Atari introduces the game Rampart way back in the early 90's. The graphics have changed a lot over the years but the gameplay is basically pretty similar. Hero TD - Ancient Continent is a multiplayer online role-playing game for Android, Blackberry10 and iOS that proves to be an exciting and addictive ...  More

Everything you need to run your retail shop or restaurant

I asked a retail owner friend of mine the other day how long she spent on 'paperwork' in her three salons and she reckoned it was close-on a day a week. She told me that she would have to laboriously plough through Excel spreadsheets and various notepads for hours every week diligently copying the nightly information from store to head office. I was telling her then that, with the right apps, she could run her entire business from her smartphone and cut her 'paperwork' time in half. Bizimply is the perfect app to illustrate that. It provides an online platform to manage your daily business ...  More

Take your swimming log to the pool with you and track your routine

When it comes to daily exercise there are many different ways of getting your body going whether it be first thing in the morning or at any other time of the day. Some will go for a jog first thing and some will choose things like yoga or fit into a trip to the gym to keep their body in trim. Some have the luxury of having a public or private swimming pool and will indulge in a regular swimming program. While there are plenty personal trainers (not to mention heaps of health and fitness apps) to check your progress at the gym or in your routine, there are not so many ways of tracking your ...  More
