Before Apple Mobile iOS 6’s new Passbook app even arrives on the market in a few months, Lemon.com Wallet app is poised to grab the market before Apple even gets a crack at them. It does more than Passbook will, but also has its struggles due to not being a native iOS app. Is it […]
I’m all about apps that make my life easier. I always find little apps that can help me increase my productivity, but every once in a while, I will hit the jackpot and find a gem among the stones, like I’ve just done today with the Dunno app.
The more business that is being doing via Internet, the more it’s being done internationally. Being able to conduct business via email, text, and social networks means people are reaching out to people in other countries that might be speaking a different language. While we used to use books and translators to help translate, these […]
Podcasts were a great thing when they first debuted. It was great to listen to these recordings about subjects you were interested in. Yet, the more iTunes came up with other interesting things they were developing, the more podcasts began to take a back seat, being relegated to the “More” section in the iOS app.
This app definitely goes under the category of “what will they think of next.” I didn’t even know such a thing existed, but now that I do, I can’t imagine ever not using it. It could be life-saving. There are dozens of Reminder apps for iOS, but Pillboxie is a specific one. As the name […]
It’s never been more fun to be a photographer, and that counts for if you’re a professional or an amateur. The advent of home computers, and even more apps, makes digitally altering photos not just fun, but easy as well. One of my favorite photo-altering apps is ColorSplash Pro for Mac. My photography student daughter […]
In this current bad economy, one of the hardest things to do is to find a job, any job really. They’re very hard to come by. Many people are working at jobs they’re over-qualified for, just to have something. It used to be that people would check out the want ads in the newspaper to […]

Sure, Pandora caters to your likes, allowing you to build stations around songs and/or artists you like, but what if you could narrow that scope down even more? The Songza app for iOS allows for just that. It allows you to […]
One of the best changes to be made in the Apple iOS was the ability to synch devices wirelessly. Previously, to sync your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, or to initialize it after your first purchase, you would have to plug it in through a USB port which would automatically initiate the sync. Recent changes […]
I’m always looking for ways to make my job a little easier. No matter how great the apps I currently use are, I’m always looking for ones that are even better. I found that with InkFlow. In the description of the app they discuss it being even better than pen and paper, and I think […]
As much as I enjoyed my Roku streaming media player, I’m an Apple user and always have been. I still craved the Apple TV. Everything on the Roku was great, but I really wanted to be able to utilize iTunes, something that isn’t available on the Roku. Once we finally upgraded to an HDTV, I […]
Everyone knows if you don’t appreciate being contacted by someone on Facebook, you can either unfriend them or block them. But sometimes, just blocking them or taking them off your friends list isn’t enough. Occasionally, other Facebook users do something so offensive it requires more than being blocked. It can be so bad that you […]
Facebook has just increased their visibility in the iOS market. They have had a Facebook app, that has its own share of problems, for awhile. The photo uploading options with this are definitely limited. Recently Facebook acquired the rights to the Instagram service, and many thought they would be moving their photos in that direction, […]
While everyone knows about Skyping and Facebook Chat, TinyChat is much lesser known. Just like the other forms of chatting, TinyChat is available across multiple platforms. It’s available both on the web as well as on mobile devices. However, unlike the others, you can do more than chat. You can also listen to music or […]
This goes under the category of “Things You Didn’t Even Know You Wanted.” It never even occurred to me that there might be alternatives out there to the Mac Store. It was just fulfilling a need. Up until a few years ago, we didn’t even have a Mac Store, and just having one seemed to […]
