Scan on your smartphone to check if your vegan food really is vegan

Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal-derived products with an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of sentient animals. Dietary vegans (or strict vegetarians) refrain from consuming all animal related products. This means meat, fish, chicken, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived substances. A trip to the supermarket however, often turns into a nightmare for vegans, because of the often confusing ingredient labeling on many of the items. Vegan Scanner lets you scan the item's barcode with your iOS or Android's camera and get ...  More

Take selfies of the thieves that use your phone and view them on Dropbox

According to recent figures, crime in NYC was actually down last year - except in one area. The theft of iDevices represented close to 30% of all crime to the extent that the NYPD now has its own department that only deals with the theft of Apple products. Many have argued that it would be simple for manufacturers to install a simple 'cut-off' switch that would render the device inoperable if it was established that it has been stolen but there has been much navel gazing when it comes to actually doing anything about it. Apple and their cohorts claim that it could leave devices wide open ...  More

Keep your device screen active and viewable all the time

While we enjoy the benefits of our device's default energy saving capabilities there are times when it's actually kind of aggravating. Probably the most annoying is when using the GPS system or reading a map. The last thing that you need is for your device to dim out or go into sleep mode when you need it in a hurry. It can be downright dangerous, if it comes to that. Stay Alive! is a free, simple and effective mobile and tablet application that is guaranteed to keep your device's screen active when you need it and off when you don't.   Stay Alive! keeps your device's screen up, ...  More

Turn your iPad into your new business receptionist

The iPad tablet has proved to be such a revelation over its four year existence. Originally, it was pitched as an iOS device that was all about fun and games and allowed you to take a lot of your PC stuff on the road with you. But of late, we have seen the iPad come of age as a business device by providing a workable platform to enhance your business potential - especially when we are talking about small business with their very tight budgets. Welco is a smart little set of office tools that turn your iPad into a mobile receptionist. As visitors turn up for an appointment they can 'sign ...  More

Intuitive tools to help your writing to flow naturally

The art of writing can be a difficult thing unless you are well organized and have the right equipment at your disposal.

Gingko is a new word processor that is the only one that allows you to see the structure of your writing as well as the content on one page at the same time.

Design inspiration when you've hit the wall

I'm sure any of you designers out there will know only too well that great design is all about the initial inspiration for a project. There is little more satisfying than visualizing a finished image in your head of how the end project is going to look. When that inspiration is there, all is good and all tends to run smoothly, but there is little more frustrating for a designer when it doesn't. Maybe you are stumped for a logo for your project or some type of illustration to make it more eye catching? So, what do you do when you just can't find what you are looking for? You turn to an ...  More

A great set of free photo edit tools to create GIF's and other cool stuff for your blog

Readers who tune into our reviews on a reasonably regular basis will know just how much we love a good photo editing application. Usually they tend to be a single function set of tools that will use different filters to turn your photos into something special. Quite often, these days, I will use two or maybe three different apps to achieve some truly artistic masterpieces - well, I think so, anyway. So it's kinda rare when a free app comes along that gives you multiple photo editing tools. Viscomsoft Social Galleries is a photo sharing and photo editing tool that gives you over twenty ...  More
