How far away is that storm, Tiger?

There are apparently some 25 million lightning strikes in the US every year with around 400 people struck by lightning strikes and many of them on the wide open fields of sporting events. The most dangerous place to be, of course, is on the golf course where golf addicts always seem to want to play one more hole before the weather really kicks in. Now, I was always told you count five seconds for every mile that the storm is away, after the  lightning strike and when the thunder sounds. Storm Distance Calculator works on this theory and, with a couple of clicks on your mobile, you'll ...  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

Track your friends and kids and make sure they get there safely

I'm not quite sure if this tracking application for iOS will be regarded as a good or a bad thing. To some it might feel to be a bit of an imposition to have one's every moved tracked but for others it might just be the lifeline that gets them to their arranged destination on time. Buddy Safe uses GPS tracking to track the progress of 'buddies' (or your kids) and make sure they don't trip up on their journey and get lost. While much of Buddy Safe's intended audience lies with children going to and from school it might prove just as useful when on holiday in unfamiliar territory.   ...  More

Find out if, and when, your emails get read

One of the great drawbacks to email is that you never really know whether the message you have sent has actually been read by the recipient and you won't know that for sure until you get a reply. I would think that if they could have their time again, the email developers would have added that feature when they designed it. It could be your resume you are sending for a job or you could be applying for a college position so you will probably be biting your nails waiting for an answer. Let's hope your email hasn't gone to the wrong department or been missed in the logjam. Was It Viewed is an ...  More

There are over two million burglaries in the US each year and, in about half of those cases, there is someone in the house when the perpetrator gets in. So, what do you do? Call 9-1-1, obviously. But when we throw in the equation of hearing impaired people at home it gets even scarier. There are some 30 million hearing impaired people in the US for whom SMS texting is not an option as it is not supported by most US 911 centers. Advanced911 comes to the rescue with this security and tracking application for iOS that lets you send an instant message and your location details to participating ...  More
