I’m a huge fan of quote books. As a matter of fact, I probably have a dozen or more quote books in my library. And now, I have 23,000 Great Quotes HD – way more convenient!
23,000 Great Quotes contains quotes from celebrities, authors, politicians, philosophers, movies and books. You can add a quote to your “favorites,” browse the quotes by author, or search for a quote by keyword.
To try the search feature, I did a search for “quote” and found this one very appropriate:
If you haven't heard, movie cinemas have begun increasing their prices to view 3D movies! Some theaters have begun raising their prices on all movies viewed in their cinema. What happened to the good old days of living vicariously through Hollywood actors without spending a whole week's check? Well, due to the state of our economy, affordable living has become a spark that most households are eagerly looking for. Welcome the redbox iPhone app! Great for affordable date nights, family time, and just wanting to see the latest release without spending $5 to watch it once.
This is one of those just-in-case apps that you might want to have. If you're in an unfamiliar city and have an urgent need to find a restroom, Where to Wee ($0.99) is here to help. It has a database of 60,000 restrooms worldwide, with more being added all the time. It shows the nearest washroom based on your GPS location and includes information on amenities such as handicap access and changing tables, as well as ratings for cleanliness.
Very cool indeed, is what I think of Amir Markish’s Radio Hungary ($1.99) which has a very user friendly interface allowing you to search Hungarian Radio stations being broadcast online. Save your favorites and play.
"Apple has reversed their policy". If I've heard it once, I've heard it a million times. Actually, I google'd those words and found 994,000 results, so that's not an exaggeration! Apple has had enough of the 'bikini' apps and has begun removing such apps from the App Store.
I must admit, I am a bit conflicted here. As a father, it can be frustrating seeing 17+ apps when doing searches or browsing the App Store. Those apps obviously sell, but that pushes other apps down in the rankings, making it harder to sell. As a developer of family-friendly apps, this is also frustrating because it means less "exposure" (pun intended) for my apps!
I love plants, but I do NOT have a green thumb. As a matter of fact, most plants die within two days of arriving at my house. Not a pretty sight.
Jumping into the middle of the iPhone video camera fray is Qik Video Camera ($1.99) by Qik Inc.which is amazing, and has edged my other favorites iVideoCamera and ShowTime out of the lead.
Apps that make a busy mom’s life a lot easier
In the 1966 song by the Rolling Stones, busy mothers need “a little yellow pill” to get them through the day. In 2010, the iPhone is a far more life supporting way to make a busy mom’s life a lot easier.
And if the factory-installed apps alone don’t do the job, there are over 100,000 applications available to make just about any task easier. Whether it’s a trip to the neighborhood grocery store or a vacation in Paris, the iPhone can help make the life of an on-the-go mom a lot less harried.
