The typical alarm clock will wake you in the morning by emanating a terrible pulsing screech or similarly upsetting noise. True that newer models offer better options than the 5AM screech, but wouldn't you rather your alarm clock do something smarter than that? Maybe tell you the weather, the latest news, your calendar events for the day followed by your favorite tunes (without commercials and other distractions)? Wake Smarter does all of those things. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that it uses voice recognition so you can even yell at it!
I love my new iPhone 4S. I had to get one to use Siri.
The temptation of having an assistant at my fingertips was more than I could bear.
There are millions of protective apps that are on the market, but only a few of them are actually effective. Master Key – Lock, Protect, and Manage Your Info is an app that provides exactly what it states. Since digital has become the way of life; passwords, pin codes, credit cards, passport information, and many other things vital to know. But, you can’t be expected to remember it all! This is why storing it somewhere without fear of it being seen is very important.
One thing that all photographers have to do is to obtain and store model releases. Easy Release makes that chore a easier.
Easy Release was designed by a professional photographer to replace paper model releases. It comes with pre-bundled, industry-standard model and property releases in 13 languages. The legal text is customizable so you can either use it “as is” or customize it to your own needs. (Note: The app is approved for use by Getty Images.)
A few weeks ago there was a lot of hoopla around the arrival of a new Gmail app (free). But it was quickly pulled from the App Store because of serious bugs. Now it's back, without the bugs. Gmail has a large base of users, and the arrival of a dedicated app is welcome. Reviews have been lukewarm, however, with the main criticism being that it doesn't support multiple email accounts.
The Head Finder app is a task management or schedule management app to help you organize all the different things you have to do. This app has a very simple user interface and it seems they designed all the most common functions to be done with as little tapping and typing as possible which is a real time saver. I’ve used several time management apps in the past and it always seemed like I was wasting more time entering my events and tasks into the app than I saved by being more organized. With Head Finder you can have a new task entered in less than thirty seconds with their quick three tap process to create a reminder.
UniQXcess is an app that in its basic format is a file viewer; however, it boasts that you can access your files from your PC remotely. Which seems pretty cool; however, there is no Mac support, which to me seems a bit ironic, really. Anyway, I wasn’t able to test the remote access of the file viewer because I have a Mac. But I was still able to access the file viewer and view local files and files from my Dropbox account.
