The next generation of customer support and website communication

One of the great things about bricks and mortar retail is the communication and rapport that can be built up between a store and its customers. A few simple words here and there can be the difference between a one-off shopping experience and a regular customer who comes back again and again. This is one aspect of online shopping that tends to get lost. There are so many alternative sites out there delivering similar products and services that customer loyalty is a tricky one to maintain. So, it's nice to see an app coming out that encourages customer interaction and makes the visitor seem ...  More

Dont let just any Tom, Dick or Harriett have your real mobile number

One of the more painful things about giving out your mobile phone number to people that you don't really know is that you are instantly vulnerable. If it’s a business that has your number, the chances are you'll be getting follow up calls offering 'the deal of a lifetime' for the next few weeks. While that's not so bad if you are at home receiving the call, you really don't want random phone calls while you are at work, out for dinner or - worst of all - when you are driving. DialMask is a very useful phone privacy app for iOS that offers an unlimited amount of substitute phone numbers so ...  More

Just what the world needs, right? Another messenger app. And what's more, it's called Lemon? Are they kidding? But, don't you remember that advert that Don Draper kept in his portfolio in Mad Men?

Smartphone to smartphone messaging that is free and totally private

There has been a huge amount of conversation lately about the security of our communications - whether it be online or on your phone. In America, Europe and Australia, Governments have been desperately trying to put legislation in place so that they can monitor the online activities of potential terrorists but many of these actions appear to be somewhat disproportionate responses. Apart from the obvious invasion of privacy issue, if the NSA can have access to your private information then, chances are, there are others who might also be able to get their hands on it. SQURE messenger 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

Real time messaging gives that walkie talkie experience

Probably the most amazing thing about this iOS video messaging application is the fact that delivery is instant. Vtalkie uses simple 'press and talk' technology that allows you to share video or text messages immediately. So, effectively, this turns this easy to use communication app into a back-and-forth,  real-time 'walkie talkie' messaging service. The app also adds a social element allowing you to search for friends via social profiles. Like Glide, Vtalkie video walkie talkie is a free application that lets you get your message across fast. However, the former is only available ...  More

Use your most interesting photos to meet new people - and get a picture back

I'm not sure why I really like Melt...but I do. After all, there's really nothing that's particularly groundbreaking about this social photo and messaging application for iOS. It might be the fact that it has a very cool name or it might be the very minimalistic qualities of its simple interface. Or it might well be that it's just the place to get your favorite photos vindicated, liked and commented on. While, of course, we can always post our interesting photos on Facebook or any number of other social networks, there's no guarantee that your blaze friends will acknowledge them. Melt is a ...  More
