Safeway's New App Reinvents Shopping Experience

image

Last week, as I was walking through my local Safeway, a louder-than-usual announcement came over the internal sound system, informing shoppers of the new Safeway app. I downloaded it immediately using the store’s WiFi, but didn’t know which e-mail address was tied to my phone number. So I had to wait until I got home to explore.

Sign-up for the service required the web (unless you are new to the Safeway rewards program, and then you can sign-up on the app). I linked a new e-mail address to my phone, registered on the web and started browsing.

5 Of The Top, Rugged iPhone Cases In Review: Welcome to a review of heavy-duty cases by someone who really puts his iPhone's case through some vigorous testing! My iPhone accompanies me on many an outdoor adventure, and like me, has had its fair share of spills and thrills. So I have a good idea of what makes a "good rugged case", a good rugged case.



Save a tree, use Paper by 53

After a hiatus from writing, I couldn't really contain myself anymore, and wanted to share a great little app Paper by 53 (free) available from the app store.  It's hard to describe how elegant and useful this app is without giving some example of how you could use it, in my case as a journal sketching out concepts for piece of jewlery.  This app is sweet!



Unorganized?

To be the most successful person that one can possibly be, getting organized seems to be the first step.  With iExplorer, taking that step just gets easier by the minute.

 

iExplorer (HD) is an application that allows a user to basically view and manage files on their servers.  This is not just on the iphone, but in the office, at home and virtually anywhere possible!  The app does not just simply manage files though, because the user can play music, read books and do a whole lot more.



What If You Don't Have Siri? A Look At Personal Voice Assistant Alternatives To Siri.

   Not to negate the progress that has been made recently in the area of artificial intelligence vocal assistant apps, but relatively speaking, this technology, at a consumer level, is still in its infancy. Even Siri is technically still a BETA release. So we can expect to see some glitches and hang ups in all of the current alternatives for vocal assistant software. That said, some are definitely better than others.



New VoIP Adapter: free calls forever

 

Lose your landline, lose MagicJack. Get OBi100 VoIP adapter for $39.99 and make FREE calls over the Internet forever. It kinda bugged me when MagicJack raised their rates by 10 bucks a year to a captive audience this year. Well, here's something you can do about it. Get an OBi100 unit.

The Obi100 phone adapter plugs into your router for Internet connectivity. Then it makes calls using an interface like Google Voice. Of course you have to configure it to your Google Voice account or another service such as Sipgate, so it's not quite plug and play. But that's not a big deal.
