A fun and effective way of learning conversational Japanese

They say that if you are going to learn a language then the earlier you start the better. But why is that I wonder? Surely, the brain power of an adult with their learning capacity and drive is going to be able to pick up a language at least as quickly as a little kid. So maybe the learning pattern is not quite right. StudyChat Japanese was developed to incorporate an element of fun into language learning in the same way that kids are taught new words and phrases in another language.  It uses the simple and fun  idea of flash cards to encourage better understanding of the ...  More

On Our Way was developed by a couple of foodie guys after one specific road trip on the 1-5N from San Diego to San Francisco proved to be underwhelming on the food front.

Illustrate your photo spreads with the stories behind them

Much as I love it when my friends put personal photos up there is something so much better when they are accompanied by a bit of a spiel to tell us viewers the circumstances of the event. A picture of a beach is a picture of a beach no matter how photogenic it is but if you knew that it was the place where your friends saw dolphins in the water and had a romantic picnic then it changes the whole scenario. Rewindy is a photoshare app that turns into a storytelling app by allowing you to create a visual story of your photos accompanied by some personal thoughts about the time and place. ...  More

Touristlink is a very social travel application that pins its reputation on the personalities of the locals.

Find great parking in major US cities

Parking is one of the banes of the modern city, isn't it? It can be hard to find and quite expensive. Very expensive if you get parking fines. For the city council it causes headaches as well as a valuable form of income. For the commuter there is little more frustrating than being behind someone new to the city looking for somewhere to park their car and see the sights. ParkMe goes some way to alleviating many of those problems by providing parking data to give solutions to the seemingly eternal problem of big city parking. This free transport and travel application for smartphone rolls ...  More

Put a voiceover on your photos

I guess we are going to refer to pretty well every photoshare with comments application as Pinteresting from here on in. There are lots of them springing up all over the place and each one seems to have its own specific quirk to set it apart from the others. Enpixa is a free photo share app for iPhone where you can add your voice to it so you can tell everyone the circumstances of when it was taken. Well, you weren't expecting that, we're you? When you have chosen or taken your photo just record your 30 second voice over and share it on email or through your favorite social networking ...  More

Calm your fear of flying

When I flew to LA just after 9/11 so many people asked me if I was petrified at the thought of it. In truth, it was probably the safest time to fly. The fact is, it's much safer to fly than it is to drive and you've probably got a bigger chance of being struck by lightning than going down in a plane. But try telling that to the guy sitting next to you that's clutching the seat so tightly his fingers are turning white. Turbcast is an air travel application for iphone and ipad that delivers stone cold information to allay the fears of flying for even the most white knuckled of ...  More
