How to Transfer Contact Info on Your iPhone or iPod Touch

image

How many times have you wanted to send someone contact information from your iPhone or iPod Touch, but you couldn’t do it? Instead, you had to manually type the information into an Email to send it or tell them the information over the phone. Big time waster!



Not awake early enough to catch the Today Show? No problem.

image

Do you wake up early enough to catch the Today Show? I don't. We're computer nerds who can easily stay awake until 3:a if we're not careful & dawn? It's a 4-letter word in this house. Thanks to the Today Show app, I can finally see what I've been missing during those early hours.



Free apps for making calls via your iPod Touch

image

If you're an iPod Touch user, you need not be incommunicado. If you're in the vicinity of a Wi-Fi hotspot, you can use your device to make calls, including calls to landline and cell phones. In this review in the Wall Street Journal, Walt Mossberg tests three apps — all FREE — that let you make calls without needing $70/month phone service like your iPhone brethren.



Cute Math is Not Only Cute, It's Effective!

I love all these new educational apps for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Many of us have been in situations where we wish we had something for our children to do while waiting. These educational apps serve just that purpose.



App Treasures: New Independent Label Formed

image

I was recently contacted by Noel from Snappy Touch to let me know about a new software label being formed by several prominent independent developers.  Now I could ramble on in my own words about it, but thankfully he was kind enough to provide me with a press release, so here goes:

This free utility puts your AT&T Wireless account right at your fingertips. I installed this app thinking it was probably just a quick & easy way to pay my bill without having to log in on my home PC.

Recently I reviewed a great game called Peggle from PopCap. I happen to have a couple of free copies for 2 lucky winners that comment on this post (or the original review post). The $10 gift codes can also include an additional PopCap game of your choosing!



Summer - A Good Time for Review

image

Getting a child to review the multiplication tables over the summer is not an easy task. But, a game that your child can do while waiting for appointments or while you shop might make it easier. 24x7digital has developed an app called TimesTables (v. 1.1) for the iPhone or iPod Touch. The challenge is to see how many multiplication problems your child can get right in the fastest amount of time. 



Yahoo app adds voice search

image

The Yahoo! app for the iPhone is in the News category in iTunes, which is a bit odd, since the app does so many things. Most recently the company added voice search to its app, so that you can speak your queries. (Voice search has been available in Google Mobile App for some time.) In addition to offering search, Yahoo's app offers news, e-mail (Yahoo, Google, Hotmail, or AOL), status updates from Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks, RSS feeds, Yahoo Calendar, Address Book, and Messenger — and much more.



Review: Treasures Of Montezuma

image

The reality is that match 3 games - the genre made famous by the game Bejeweled - are currently a dime a dozen in the App Store.  So what does a developer need to do to make their take on the match 3 game stand out from the crowd?  I'd say that taking lessons from Treasures Of Montezuma would be a great start.  I have several of the hotly anticipated iDevice titles that have come out over the past couple of months sitting on my device, yet I find myself continually drawn to playing TOM instead.  To me that speaks to both the addictive nature of the genre and the creativity the designers employed to make TOM a match 3 experience unlike most others on the iDevice.
