Save it, track it, treat it

I may be a little too cynical to provide an objective review of this application and I wouldn’t want to give the impression that I don’t consider stress to be a serious issue because I do. What I am finding difficult is in trying to work out what angle it’s coming from. Is it trying to put some "fun" into stress, which is an oxymoron of gargantuan proportions, or is it to be taken as a serious aid to reducing the condition?  More

Online Notes Services - Fast . Easy . Short

This site is obviously still in the development stage as 80% of the functions are still "coming soon". Either that or the cash has run out and finding more is proving difficult. I must say if I’d been asked to consider funding it I would have probably politely declined. Let’s consider the ground breaking capability of the app. Firstly it’s a note taking system that allows you to" take notes quickly and browse your archive".  More

you complete me

There is no use in denying it, we’ve all been there. I’m sure all children no matter where they come from are guilty of the same secret pleasure when confronted with their first dictionary and a quiet adult-less corner. That’s right, naughty words!   More

I confess I gave this app a go in the naughty word department and it didn’t disappoint. Far from it and I wondered if DH Lawrence had taken a crafty trip in the Tardis to the 21st century and punched in a few lines that were giving him some sleepless nights.  More

First Web-based Book Proposal Software

BP Wiz is not a publisher but it can certainly help you find one in a professional manner and in the way the industry expects.

Those rejection letters can be soul destroying.  More
