Take Me Home -- free app puts contact info on lock-screen in case you lose your iPhone

Most people are honest, at least here in rural Iowa. I know that if I lost my iPhone, they'd likely try to return it. But I've often wondered how easy it would be for them to contact me if they did find it, especially if they weren't familiar with the iPhone. One solution is to put your contact information on the lock-screen of your device, so that it's readily available if someone should find your iOS device. A free app, Take Me Home, lets you easily do this. The free version is fully functional, and comes with an attractive home screen.

Missed the days when festive and celebration greeting cards came with penned message? Wasn't the meaning more personal? Now, with new gen technology, greeting message come in the form of a single SMS send, BCC-ed or forwarded to all recipients. The personal feeling is lost together with the meaningful message contained in those mass produced greeting SMS/Texts. Some greeting text are getting so generic you get back the same greeting you send!

When I was asked to review GoGo Navigator, I admit I was a little skeptical - could it really match my beloved TomTom app for such a reasonable price? Much to my surprise, GoGo Navigator is a brilliant GPS app that does a terrific job for a fraction of the entry fee.
