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

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

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

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

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
