I was recently asked to review the Cardio Lie Detector Premium from Ubinuri the Korean software application company who also brought us the app MyLAB PRO.  Ubinuri interesting has recently been invested in by INFOCOM  - Infocom is one of the leading IT companies in Japan. Cardio Lie Detector Cardio Lie Detector Premium is an simple application for your iPhone or iPad that can tell if you are telling a lie or the truth.   The lie detector uses the camera to first sample your heart rate and then when you are being subjected to questioning it compares it to your heart rate to the original sample - because when you lie your heart rate increases.  You can watch this all happening the screen as the application detects your heartbeat. 1. Put your finger over the Camera at the back of the Phone 2. Press start to measure normal heart rate 3. Press start again to ask questions 4. You will get a percentage rating to say if what percentage of a chance it is you are lying.         [...]

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 [...]

New 4s iPhone Twitter app has protected tweets #140

By | January 2nd, 2012|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , , , |

I've finally joined the iPhone 4s club ! When the phone arrived I must admit I was a little nervous about transferring all of the information from one iPhone to the other, I'd heard of people losing information and I don't have the best of records with iTunes. Before registering the new micro Sim I ... Backed up my iPhone to Orange backup Backed up to iCloud iOS5 Synced the iPhone with iTunes Now I was ready.. There was a problem with completing the Sim Swap on line, there was no option for my plan oddly - but Orange did it all over the phone, then I synced the new iPhone 4s with iTunes - Done. Some of the applications on the 4s wanted me to re-input my user name and password and some applications didn't but that was fine. Protected tweets!? Until I went to use the Twitter App for iPhone  - it logged me in fine but it wouldn't let me view my tweets, it said protected tweets or I was not authorised to view the tweets, so although I was logged [...]

By | January 2nd, 2012|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

What song is this - What's that track - Tra la la. Is that a familiar question? All day you have had that annoying song going around in your head, you have no idea what the artist or the title of the track is, and you only know a few words, which doesn't come up in a Google search. (Yes this is me!) SoundHound could let you keep your sanity! SoundHound is a music recognition application by SoundHound Inc. which can recognise tracks from your singing - well most of the time, and that's with my bad singing!  It is said to have the worlds fastest music recognition, exclusive singing search, voice search and lyrics. This application has been around in one form or another for some time - once known as Midomi - It has had many updates and changes to it!  It is also listed as a New York Times top ten app for iPhone and Android. When I first saw Shazam I thought that was amazing, but this has the extras that I wanted Shazam to have, lyrics and [...]

Paddington Bear Application Launched on iTunes

By | December 4th, 2011|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

I used to love cute little Paddington Bear when I was a child and seeing the Paddington Bear Application being launched brought it all back to me. Who is Paddington Bear? Paddington Bear is a classic story of a young bear from Darkest Peru, who ended up at Paddington Station, London, England.  Mr and Mrs Brown found him there and took him home to live with them in a semi detached house in Nottinghill London. Written by OBE Michael Bond, now 85, the first book entitled  "A Bear Called Paddington" was published in 1958 by HarpersCollins then known as William Collins and sons and the illustrator then was, Peggy Fortnum.  However picture books for younger children were published in 1975 and were illustrated by Fred Banbery. The Paddington books have sold more than thirty-five million copies worldwide and have been translated into over forty languages. Paddington made the big screen, well, Television in 1975, Please Look After This Bear designed and directed by Ivor Wood and made in the UK by FilmFair Ltd.  Pretty good stuff for 1975! :) And now we've moved on [...]

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 [...]
