How to avoid creating a pickup basketball game where no one turns up

Okay, here's the scenario. You have the day off work and you fancy a well organised game of basketball, a competitive soccer kick around or an afternoon of surfing. The only trouble is, your friends are mostly at work themselves and can't help you out. So, what do you do? Trawl the likes of Facebook and search for possible likeminded individuals who might want to play? Head for the local sports area and hope there's a few people hanging around? Or do you just head to the local pub and take your chances there'll be a few likely candidates who aren't too drunk yet? I think it's safe to ...  More

The best way to create an event and let your guests know all about it

What do you do when you are planning to invite a whole bunch of people to a wedding, a gala opening or a birthday party? Do you pick up the phone and start calling, whip round to the local stationers to get invites printed up or start messaging? We've all had to do it at some stage in our life but it's hardly an efficient way of going about things, is it? Especially in this digital age when other options are available. Apart from anything else, it's hard to keep track of everyone and involves a heck of a lot of paperwork...not to mention brain power. Naturally, there's an online answer to ...  More

Take a photo of your restaurant meal and share a review with fellow users

I read an article not so long back about how some New York restauranteurs were banning customers from taking arty photographs of their plates of food because it disrupts the ambience of the venue. Rather than surreptitiously taking a quick snap of the food they were about to devour, diners were going so far as to stand on their chair to get the perfect shot of their culinary delight. While we can only sympathise with restaurants who are having to put up with these excessive antics from customers, I feel that they are probably missing out on a great marketing tool that could make them even ...  More

An easy way to check the status of your phone

I bet most of you have absolutely no idea what an IMEI number is, have you? I certainly didn’t before I started researching for this review. It turns out that every hand held device – ie your smartphone – has its very own unique 15 digit IMEI (International Mobile Station Equipment Identity) identity number. You can find it by entering *#06# on your call screen, apparently. So, apart from being the phone’s identity number, what else does it do for you? Well, you might need it if you want to unlock your device to use with another network or you might be asked for it ...  More

Be ahead of your competitors by adding an automated chatbot for your Facebook business page

How many people do you think there are out there that use Facebook Messenger each month? 100,000? 1,000,000? 50,000,000? Well, hold onto your hats because, at the last count, there were 1.2 billion of them. That's a heck of a lot of people. Most people use it to chat with friends or to share news and photos but there's a business aspect to it that hasn't been fully utilised as yet. How about if you used Messenger to get your message across to customers on your Facebook business page using autonomous chatbots?   More

A new kind of dating app for people of all persuasions

In a recent study of dating and relationships in the digital era, Pew Research Center claims that 11% of American adults - and 38% of those who are currently 'single and looking' for a partner - have used online or mobile dating apps. Things have changed dramatically regarding online dating over the years with attitudes towards them becoming far more positive. In the 12 years since Pew's last survey in 2005 there has been a 15% increase in the number of people who think that online dating is a good way to meet people. Consequently, the number of online dating apps these days has gone ...  More

A new dating site for men where you decide the level of commitment

If you look through the many gay dating sites available online you'll see that the predominant feature of many is the quick hook-up. While it has changed its emphasis more recently, an app like Grindr for example, built its reputation on being the place to go to meet up with like-minded people with sex as the ultimate goal. However, gay folks - just like heterosexual folks - have a myriad of reasons for wanting to meet up with new friends. Some indeed are looking for sex. But many others are simply looking for friendship or are looking for someone to settle down with in a long-term ...  More

An augmented reality game that could turn building blocks into the next Pokemon Go

It wasn't so long ago that, if you mentioned the words 'augmented reality' when talking about the games industry, no one would have a clue what you were talking about. AR was thought of mostly as a learning device in the early days and an image comes into our minds of optical projections and headsets that put the user into a real-world environment even though they might be seated in a darkened room. Then the games industry took it on board and embraced it. Games like AR Air Hockey, Titans Of Space and AR-enhanced pool table games hit the market and blew people's minds. More recently, a ...  More

A free version of your favorite time tracking app

For many professional industries, time tracking software is an essential part of daily business. It enables both employees and employers an easy way of keeping track of the billable hours spent working on tasks for specific clients. This is especially relevant for businesses that bill their clients by the hour - like agencies, lawyers, freelancers and accountants. However, time tracking doesn't just keep track of hours spent. It's also a very useful tool for helping improve productivity by giving business a better understanding of where time might be wasted. With all time spent on a ...  More

What's better than a real life postcard from a friend

Let's face it, as nice as it can be to receive an online postcard from a friend, it's nothing in comparison to getting a real one in the mail. But that would involve them having to go to the store and to sort through the measly selection of cards to find something that seems appropriate to send. Your friend probably has better and more appropriate photographs on their smartphone than the ones on offer in the store. Then, of course, they would have to sit down and write a few lines on the card before heading off to the post office, buying a stamp and sending it to you. Then you just have to ...  More
