Busy Web Product Manager Creates Time for Home Life

(Author’s note: This article is based on a conversation I had with Christian Zambrano, Project Manager of the JACI Group, Inc.)

PalringoChristian Zambrano’s work is never done! He works for a company that has a Midwest office and programming staff in India. Because of time differences, he gets urgent questions sent to him at all hours of the day. His iPhone lets him take the office with him. He can be anywhere and check his two work-related accounts and one personal e-mail account.

SafeWallet Winners

 The SafeWallet Contest is over, and just want to thank SBSH for sponsoring this giveaway and to all the great comments from our readers. Winners, and instructions on getting prizes are posted after the break. I personally use Spb Wallet on my touch (see my review), but that is only because they had PC syncing before SBSH (which SBSH now has also added). It's good to see that people are being serious about their sensative data and protecting it.



Radio client news: Clock Radio at a 66% off; major roundup update

I've just finished posting a major update to my radio client roundup (more precisely, in the second part).

In it, I review two radio applications containing a timer - one, Clock Radio, containing even a very nice and big clock. Incidentally, the latter is at a 66% off this weekend and is offered for $1 only. (Hurry up if you need it.)

I've also elaborated on which radio clients can be put in the bckground on jailbroken devices.

 



Remote

Apple’s Remote app turns your iPhone into a universal controller for iTunes on your computer. With this app, which works through your home’s Wi-Fi network, you can control your tunes from anywhere in the house. Use it to shuffle, skip, play, edit, and pause songs in your iTunes library. It also works nicely with the Apple TV digital media receiver. 


 

Have2P

Have2PWhen you gotta go, you gotta go, right? And when you gotta go, you gotta know where the nearest restroom is. Have2P uses the iPhone’s GPS locator to find and display the locations of the nearest restrooms in your area. It also lets you know if it’s a public or customer-only restroom, if it offers changing tables, and how clean it is (thumbs up or down). Have2P displays the restroom locations on a pretty map with your current location clearly marked, making it easy to find a restroom.

Lose It

I turn to the Lose It app to help me monitor my diet and track my workouts. All you have to do is enter the foods you’re eating and your physical activity and Lose It will tell you if you are within your daily caloric budget. Yet another great reason to use an iPhone!
