Both a unique marketing tool and a fun photosharing surprise

Rickrolling was a phrase that came about because of a unique piece of music marketing some years ago. Some genius marketer came up with a 'bait and switch' concept that provided a hyperlink being triggered when a person clicked on an interesting picture. Rather than the link taking them where they were expecting to go, it took them to a music video by British singer Rick Astley and his hit single "Never Gonna Give You Up." People who clicked were known as rickrollers. The campaign was hailed as an innovative - if rather sneaky - marketing success and had the effect of rejuvenating ...  More

A simple, fun and free app to remind you of everything that you need to do

Aaahh, life used to be so simple, didn't it? It used to be that we could rely on our memory, a diary or copious post-it notes plastered all over the fridge to remind us of the things that we or our family and friends need to do. But these days we all seem to be so busy that it's hard to keep on top of everything. Whether it be birthdays and anniversaries, upcoming bills, business meetings or scholastic events, it's a pain if they get lost in your busy schedule. What we all really need is a personal assistant to guide us through the day.  More

A free, fully customizable forum and commentary box for your website

Its a strange thing but the comments box at the bottom of a website page often offers some of the most incisive comments that you can find. I don't know about you but it's often the first thing I look at after perusing a page about a product or service. Sometimes there are a few iffy comments in there but, generally speaking, you can find out tips and recommendations and it's a really good way for developers to find out what their visitors are really thinking. It's also an opportunity to answer queries as well as engaging your community and keeping them interested in what you have to say. ...  More

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

The first online and in-person game to use GIFs to get your message across

It's not easy to come up with an original game concept these days. YIX is a new game for iOS that actually manages to come up with something a little bit different to keep us amused. Well, to be honest, you can't really call this entertaining and very social game truly original because it's origins lie in games like Cards Against Humanity and Apples To Apples but, with it's use of animated GIFs rather than cards, it offers a unique take on a fun and often hilarious piece of entertainment that you can play with family and friends.   The creation and consumption of GIFs has risen to ...  More

Get social while you find great new movies

It seems to get more and more difficult to find a really good movie these days - especially if your taste runs to more than multi million dollar blockbusters that seem to dominate the multiplexes. There used to be the local DVD store down the road that would always have someone working that knows their stuff but they are few and far between in the digital age. So there needs to be another knowledge base of good films to tap into that ensures that lesser known masterpieces like Donnie Darko and Cloud Atlas don't slip through the cracks. We've seen plenty of movie recommendation apps over ...  More

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
