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.

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

Store, manage, collaborate and have complete control over your digital assets

Control of your business data used to be reasonably easy in the old days of paper. There was probably a rickety old filing cabinet where all your photos and documents were kept and there was probably one person who knew exactly what was going on.

An online game that is better than the original

Along with Go and Chess, Backgammon is reckoned to be one of the oldest games in existence. It was originally thought to have been played about 5,000 years ago and seems to have originated in what today we call Iraq - though it was then known as Mesopotamia. Equally, real-time online backgammon play was just as quick off the mark with the first internet backgammon server coming online being established in 1992. However, the online game has come a long way since those days. BackgammonAce is an exciting, fast and free game application for iOS and Android that turns the traditional board game ...  More

It has always left me totally flummoxed that it costs such a lot to produce true legal documents. Wills are probably the most perplexing.

Monitor all your networked computers from one place and keep your workers honest

The introduction of the computer systems has been such a boon to business over the last twenty years or so that it's impossible to envisage life without them. But with them comes other problems - especially now that every man and his dog seems to belong to some form of social network. There is always the temptation for them to log into their Facebook or Twitter account, play online games or, God forbid, watch porn sites and waste the time that you are paying them for. So, how can you monitor what they are doing behind their computer screens and ensure that the time they spend at work is ...  More
