Glide Video Texting App

By | July 31st, 2013|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

This Free Glide Video Texting App looks really cool. With Glide you are able to send video messages that are saved in the cloud to watch later or you can use the video to have real time chat.  With just one person or even in a group. To me, right now glide does sound just awesome. They just did one thing to let me down. Log in with Facebook The only down side for me is that you have to (at the moment) log in via Facebook.  However don't freak out, they are working on some other sign up options.  In one way signing up with Facebook does give the app some security.  As obviously its only people you call  your friends that can send you Glides.  However with a stand alone app you could have it so that only people you allow can send you video messages, maybe even with a code like BBM. Another thing I'm concerned with using Facebook or Twitter to sign in are the extra messages you will get, and I have seen reports of spam [...]

Curiosity – whats inside the cube – iPhone Application

By | November 8th, 2012|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Curiosity - I hope it didn't kill the cat My son just showed me a Yogscast video about a new application on the iPhone that has been created by Peter Molyneux at 22cans - and has already taken the world by storm.  The servers have already collapsed under the stress of the popularity of this game. 22cans call it an experiment or a competition. Curiosity the cube When you first open the application it just says - Are you curious ! Its simple but its so exciting!!!!!!  Why is Curiosity so exciting? The aim of the game to click madly at the blocks or cubelets on a GIANT rotating cube to destroy them  all with everyone else that has the application at the same time to see what is inside the box ...... CRAZY .... gaming gone mad. Everyone that has the application is chipping away at the same box, some people are creating pictures, text messages and even QR codes while they chip away at the side of the box... This website shows some of the creations - many aren't very tasteful so don't look if [...]

What does 1GB data allowance mean – Mobile

By | October 27th, 2012|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , , |

What is data allowance I hate being restricted to how much mobile data allowance I have - you are never sure how  much you you are using.  Thats why if I can, I will always go for unlimited, or as Three.uk call it  All-you-can-eat-data when sorting out my tariffs. When going on holiday people are always asking me - how long can I go on the internet for if I only have so much data allowance per day - the trouble is it doesn't really work that way - it depends what you are doing. Orange now have an app to help you with holiday useage called Travel Angel - on iTunes - I haven't tested it yet, and to be honest it doesn't have good reviews but it looks to be perfect for setting up holiday packages and keeping an eye on data usage - more about that later. Three uk know that people are very confused about how much data certain websites or operations use, so they have created this infographic to show the difference between All-you-can-eat-data and 1GB data [...]

DrawingSomething Application including Bugs and Fixes

By | April 15th, 2012|Categories: Mobile apps, Reviews|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Its been all go recently with Intragram being bought by Facebook and now DrawSomething from OMGPOP being bought by Zynga of Farmville fame for massive amounts of money it seems. Hopefully Zynga will sort out some of the problems that people are experiencing. Where can I play DrawSomething If you still don't know what Drawsomething is (where have you been?) - it is a drawing game similar to Pictionary where you draw a picture and people guess what it is, you can play this with Facebook friends or random people using the iPhone or iPad from iTunes. You can also play it directly from Facebook or on Google Plus. The app has a free game and a paid game - the only difference I can see is that you do not get adverts on the paid game. People are really good at this game, you can see some of the drawings on the DrawSomething Facebook page  iSketch I played DrawSomething on Facebook first because it reminded me of a browser based game which I was addicted to about 12 years ago called iSketch which is still [...]

Need an honest opinion? Ask Opinionaided.

By | November 12th, 2011|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Opinionaided is a mobile social networking application designed for asking opinions and advice to a large community in realtime.   Similar to Quora (which came after)  but from what I've seen it seems that this one is more used by the younger generation for questions such as.. Do you like my new hairstyle?  or Am I good-looking  -  where as Quora is more for business type questions I find.  However you can filter these questions out and just go to a specific topic. Opinionaided was launched in 2010 by founder Dan Kurani and co-founders Mike Melli and Matt Holloway and already has many users. Originally for iphone, ipod, and iPad, but is now available on Android and Online. The interesting thing about Opinionaided is the phenomenal response rate - the first time I used it I asked a pretty lame question and within seconds I had 10 answers!  What networking site can you say that about? Its very easy to use there are five buttons at the bottom of the screen which are Home - Where you get two options - Ask [...]

Blippar – The QR code killer ?

Who or what is Blippar... and why is it going to kill the QR code!? Blippar is a Uk Company that launched its free image recognition application earlier this year in android and apple stores. Blippar™ is the first universal augmented reality platform aimed at advertisers.   Blippar is a new way to advertise or to get people interested in your brand. Its a great way to use marketing and the technology we love at the same time. Blippar call it a little bit of magic in our phones. Turn a real world object in front of you into an interactive experience by using your phone, genius! What it does is similar to the QR code, which I do love - but it is far, far more. The application uses the camera to recognise products. It might be actual bottles and packets or maybe posters, adverts, a building or even your logo on your business card or cup anything in the real word that is blippable you can turn into digital connections, information or interactive entertainment. The list is in fact endless! You hold your [...]

At last iTunes has a Google+ App for Apple iPhone !

By | July 19th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

  The Google+ app has arrived for iPhone!  Since the Android app was launched for Google plus, we Apple users on Google+ have been patiently waiting (for a couple of weeks!) for an iTunes application, although to be fair it was pretty good using Safari. As far as I know Apple has had it for over a week for approval. Finally it is available for 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4 - Nothing for the iPod Touch, or the iPad available yet! I couldn't actually find it via the App Store from the iPhone yet  (it is appearing now under realease date) however Download Google+ for iPhone here using itunes   http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google/id447119634   This is a free application and it will be interesting to see, what it will creep up to in the free application charts and how long it will take. Be aware, as I did find another application created by someone else that was 69p   Message recieved on - Google+ via iTunes from +Punit Soni  We discovered an issue with the version of the iPhone Google+ App that was on the [...]
