By | October 6th, 2012|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , , |

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.

The Addictive Social Word Game iOS App – Can’t Say That!

By | July 22nd, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , |

If you like "Words with Friends" or other social word games for iPhone or iPad then you are going to love this iOS application "Can't Say That!" developed by Fugazo -  I love Turn- taking, arcade type games like this and I'm already addicted to this one after a few days, its great fun. Getting Started with Can't Say That! Fugazo have realised their error of only allowing you to play via Facebook and are currently working on allowing you to create an account via email, which I would much prefer. I do hate it when you are forced to sign in with your Facebook account. However right now, when you first sign in to - Can't Say That -  you are requested to sign in using Facebook, you do not need to have to post to Facebook at all, just change that option - and nothing goes through as far as I have seen. You can chose to play with one of your friends or just someone random, random people pop up right away and so far they have been quick to [...]

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 [...]

SoundHound can name that tune, just sing or hum.

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 [...]

Calibre ebook management for Kindle or ebook reader

By | December 11th, 2011|Categories: Reviews|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

I love Calibre - Calibre is a free open source e-book library management application.  In short - it manages your eBooks like iTunes does for your tracks. I'm late to this game, as Calibre actually launched in 2006 after the release of the first e-ink based reader the Sony PRS-500. Kovid Goyal immediately realised that there were no good tools to convert the books in to the correct formats to be able to read them on the Sony, so with the help of mobileread.com libres500 was born, later to be changed to Calibre in 2008. Today calibre is a vibrant open-source community with half a dozen developers and many, many testers and bug reporters. It is used in over 200 countries and has been translated into a dozen different languages by volunteers. calibre has become a comprehensive tool for the management of digital texts, allowing you to do whatever you could possibly imagine with your e-book library - Kovid Goyal 2009.  How to use Calibre eBook management tool on the Kindle Its so simple to use but I will run you though the options on the interface [...]

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 [...]

By | October 24th, 2011|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

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 [...]
