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.

The only Canadian tax app that pushes you straight to a professional

It's tax time again in Canada. Income tax returns for individuals are due in by April 30th with the self employed needing theirs to be filed by June 15th. Nobody likes paying them but taxes are what makes the world go around. There's no reason, however, not to be sure of getting all your deductions in correctly and minimizing the amount that you pay. Big businesses do it all the time so there's no need to feel guilty about it.  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

Get your personal budget in order and know your monetary limits

It would appear that, after the horrors and belt-tightening that resulted from the GFC a few years ago, there seems to be a little bit of money back in the pocket again. It took around 10-15 years for the turnaround to happen after the crash of '29 so we've probably done a good job in minimizing the damage so far. I think we've learned a few things out of this crisis though. The main thing i think that we've learned is that it's never been more important to organize ourselves monetarily and that it's vital to live within our means. A budget is essential -especially where families are ...  More

Know your Bitcoins!

There has been much newspaper and TV talk recently about alternative online cryptocurrencies and how they fare in modern society. Bitcoin is one that has been heavily featured as the potential leader of the bunch but even that has been treated with mistrust and confusion as people struggle to get their heads around the concept of non-traditional, non-folding money. The fact is, however, that more and more online (and non-online) companies are finding it a very convenient way of paying and being paid for goods and services. Coinnext is an online cryptocurrency exchange that facilitates the ...  More
