Two weeks ago, Jeff Niles asked me whether my app development company would be interested in helping him propose to his now-fiancée (congratulations, Jeff and Diana!) as the two of them flew over the Statue of Liberty in a helicopter. No, we didn’t assist with the actual flying part—that feature is sadly absent from iOS 6. What we did contribute: A Push notification in our New York Travel Guide app, triggered by proximity to Liberty Island (and a few other tricks my developers had up their sleeves).
Apple and House of Marley have joined forces for a limited time to promote the children's charity Little Kids Rock.
House of Marley, the lifestyle accessory company formed by Bob Marley's offspring, Rohan Marley, brings to market an original, earth-friendly and conscientous brand of quality gear. House of Marley is already recognized for it's charitable works and environmentally responsible business model, annually giving 5% of their profits to the 1Love Foundation, which was formed by Bob Marley's wife Rita. Now, and for the rest of October, Apple is proudly featuring House of Marley audio products and carry bags in the Apple store. Together, they are "doubling the love" and doubling the ammount donated to charity. Through the month of October, 10% of House of Marley's profits from Apple store sales will be donated to the charity Little Kid's Rock, which serves to bring musical intruments and music education to under-served schools and students.
As Bob Marley sings: "Give Thanks And Praises!" And indeed, today is a day for doing just that!
If you follow me online (Click HERE or HERE for more on House Of Marley), you likely already know that House Of Marley is one of my favorite developers of iOS accessories and gear out there. Taking the Honarable Robert Nesta Marley's timeless vision of love and "inity" his many offspring have formed various charitable foundations to spread that love, while consciously raising awareness, as well as funds for children in need. In particular, House Of Marley has created an outstanding line up of products to support us in our iOS enjoyment. Now House Of Marley and Apple have officially teamed up to raise money for the charity "Little Kids Rock" which helps support music education in "under-served" schools.
The world is becoming a hugely digital society, and the pen and paper technique that we all used to use is coming closer and closer to being obsolete. One thing that people still tend to do with the pen, though, is write out their schedules, shopping lists, and other little notes that act as reminders throughout the day. Well, now you can put down the pen once more, because the new app by Custom Mobile Apps Pty Ltd will allow you to organize your shopping lists right on your smartphone. The Ultimate Shopping List app puts all of your lists in an organized, easily navigational format so everyday errands can become a bit simpler.
