Management 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

Excellent free appointment scheduling, booking and more for teams of 1 to 100

Even if your business life is hectic, it's more important than ever these days to give customers the impression that you do actually know what you are doing. You know what they say...first impressions are lasting impressions, and all that. It may be mayhem behind the scenes but it's very important that the first contact with customers is a positive one. Even more so if you are an independent practitioner, a tutor, a coach or a small business.  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

Encrypt all of your data and keep it away from prying eyes

You might have seen a review that FeedMyApp ran recently for an iOS app called Notes Lock. It secured all your notes, recorded conversations and your private thoughts so that prying eyes wouldn't be able to get to them. Folder Lock Advanced is kind of an expanded version of that for both Android, iPhone and iPad that takes security one step further to protect and lock your personal folders, files, photos, apps, videos, notes, wallet and any other kind of data that you need to keep secure. This release is actually an updated and far more advanced version of the award winning desktop ...  More

Keep your notes, lectures and private thoughts locked away from prying eyes

A few years ago I had a friend who had been laboriously plotting a story that he hoped might be taken up as a tv series. He kept it tucked away on his mobile device and worked on it diligently for over a year. I contacted him again a couple of years later after I'd seen the pilot episode of a new series because the plot line bore a remarkable resemblance to his own. He told me that he'd seen the episode and put two and two together and worked out that, while he'd been at a writers’ workshop, he'd left his device unattended and a fellow writer had been able to access all of his notes. The ...  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
