Development Personal apps

Make neighborhoods safer with this personal tracking app

AidMaid is one of those apps that one hopes neither you nor your friends will ever need to use. I guess that's a strange first line for a review but, if I told you that it's a personal alarm and tracking app, I'm sure you'll come around to my way of thinking. As I'm sure you are aware, these are dangerous times. In some neighborhoods around the world, you can be taking your life in your hands every time you walk home at night. However, with the AidMaid Trusted Companion app on your Android or iOS, you'll be able to contact a hero nearby in a matter of seconds if you think you might be in ...  More

Log the ages and birthdays of your friends and family with a countdown to the big day

When I first looked at AgeLog I figured that it was just another birthday reminder for your iPhone. I was trying to work out why there was yet another app like this when there were so many others on the market already. However, while it does include many of the features that many birthday apps have, AgeLog puts a slightly different emphasis on proceedings. It's 'raisin d'être' is to log the ages of all the people around us.  More

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

Simple, interactive and beautiful code sharing that wont cost you a penny

The first thing I should come clean about regarding the sharing of codes is that I'm really no expert on the subject. However, i have done a fair bit of research in the last few days and one thing is certain. While it looks incredibly complicated, it seems that it's a hell of a lot easier when you have the right tools to do the job. There are plenty of code sharing apps on the market - Github, Pastebin, Pastie, Bitbucket and Google Code are the obvious ones. Some of these offer a simple cut and paste option and some are more complex but you will probably end up paying a monthly fee for the ...  More

Keep up with your team's HipChat and Slack progress wherever they are

For quite a few years now, businesses have been using HipChat as a communication method so that their teams can keep in touch with each other wherever they are in the world. It's basically a web service for internal private chat and instant messaging but also features cloud based file storage, video calling, searchable message history and inline image viewing.
