Tracking 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

A group trip planner that solves four familiar problems

Over the years we've seen hundreds of travel apps pass through the offices of FeedMyApp for review. I don't quite know why it is but I can honestly say that we've loved most of them. Maybe it is that hankering to get away from our humdrum lives and find a nice desert island somewhere to relax on - somewhere that’s away from wars, politicians and the Kardashians. We'd probably all go away together if it wasn't for the fact that it's a pain in the ass to organize.  More

A new way to meet friends and find out what's going on around you

A while back we reviewed a crowd-sourcing app called InAWord Reviews that asked people from all over the world their opinions on everything from movies to restaurants in just a word or two. Now here’s an app that takes the completely opposite approach to information gathering. Rather than reaching out to the world in general, AskMob is a new social tracking app for iOS and Android that concentrates on the people directly around you. It aims to find out what people in your local area are thinking about and what they are getting up to but only deals with people who are within an 11-mile ...  More

Get cheaper automobile insurance by tracking and improving your driving skills

It wasn't that long ago that car insurance was simply insurance. There wasn't a lot of difference between one company and the next and the main factors in determining the premiums we pay for insurance was our age and the classification of the vehicle we are driving. However, in many countries these days there's another area that can affect the level of payment. In most US states, for example, any moving violations can assess points on your driving record. As a result, with more points tending to indicate future violations, insurance companies review driving records every now and again and ...  More

The simplest way to analyze the effectiveness of your advertising

If you are currently running ads on your website or your app you might think that you have done the hard work and now's the time to reap the rewards. However, you might be paying for ads that don't have quite as much effect as they could do. Maybe you are running Twitter and Facebook campaigns as well as regular ads and are tracking the overall traffic that those campaigns attract. Fair enough, you might say, but what if the Twitter ads are generating twice as much interest as the other two? Taveo is a URL clicktracking and shortening service that helps you monitor and track incoming users ...  More

Security for your computer with added locate and alert features

You'd think we'd have all learned our lesson these days about computer security. While Edward Snowden's efforts are probably out of the leagues of most people, it does seem rather silly to leave our work computers unlocked and vulnerable when we are away from our desk or when we go home at night. That's why the Gatekeeper Chain (or GK Chains) app was created. It lets you auto-lock and unlock your computer when you walk away and toward it...amongst other things. Gatekeeper - Locate and Alert is an Android and iOS app that works in conjunction with the GK Chain and offers additional features ...  More

Get Black Friday-sized shopping bargains from the comfort of your own home

Does the whole concept of Black Friday scare the living daylights out of you? You've spotted an advertised price for a new TV but it's probably going to mean queuing up for hours, maybe days, in order to actually buy it at that price. Not only that but there's going to be a lot of pushing and shoving when you get in there. But it doesn't have to be like that. PWUL (Pay What You Like) is a new shopping application that constantly tracks thousands of websites to find the item that you want and at the price that you want to pay. When it becomes available at your nominated price, they'll send ...  More

Get your personal budget in order and know your monetary limits

It would appear that, after the horrors and belt-tightening that resulted from the GFC a few years ago, there seems to be a little bit of money back in the pocket again. It took around 10-15 years for the turnaround to happen after the crash of '29 so we've probably done a good job in minimizing the damage so far. I think we've learned a few things out of this crisis though. The main thing i think that we've learned is that it's never been more important to organize ourselves monetarily and that it's vital to live within our means. A budget is essential -especially where families are ...  More

Analyze Common Core tests with heat maps

I guess the best way to describe a heat map is probably to think of it as a table or a spreadsheet. Rather than detailing information with numbers, however, heat maps highlight the same information but use colors instead. This makes it clearer and easier for experienced users to analyze certain aspects of information. Read Heat is an education application that uses this technology to better analyze students to see how they react and respond to questions posed in the new Common Core standards testing. It aims to find out more about how students respond to the latest formats of standardized ...  More

A small business app to follow your leads

Big business has whole departments to follow up on any business leads in order to take them to fruition. They run vast CRM's that are overflowing with features and make sure that they do everything in their power to nurture even the merest hint of a lead and turn it into a business opportunity. That's not so easy if you are a freelancer, an entrepreneur or a small businessperson who might not have the time or the resources to follow things up quite as efficiently. Nectar is an easy-to-use and very manageable lead tracking solution that is designed for those of us that don't have copious ...  More
