Photo Table brings back that old school feel of handling photographs

image

When I first saw an early version of Photo Table, I was instantly reminded of Microsoft's Surface which itself is designed to remind users of how we used to handle photographs, before the digital age.  Here, in Rochester, New York, that was the golden age for the one-time largest local employer, Kodak.  Remember ordering prints from "film" and then opening the envelope and scattering them across a table for viewing?  Now, we see photos instantly and rarely print them.  Even then, if we print them, it's the ones we specifically wanted in hardcopy.

App Review: Tiny Flashlight 

 

The great thing about the iPhone 4 and 4s is the fact it carries a nice little LED Flash.  However it’s very rare that it gets used, unless doing a lot of indoor photography.  Even then, the flash is rarely called upon.

 



Spotify for iPhone - Another Look

Shortly after it was released in the US, I wrote a First Look post about Spotify. You can read my post here. During that initial look at Spotify I was very impressed with the service.

 



Smart Words FREE iPhone App Review

image

 

At first I thought Smart Words was just another scrabble clone but after reading through the scoring instructions and playing a couple games I realized it’s actually quite a bit different and has a lot of fun improvements.  The scoring seemed a lot more complex at first because you get a multiplayer bonus for each syllable your word has.  In addition, unlike scrabble, you can use proper nouns and you have nine tiles in your tray so you can often make much longer and more complex words.  To allow this, the game board is also quite a bit bigger.



The Best Part of the Movies

What is the best part of going to the movies? Watching all of the trailers. I found a free app that lets me see all the trailers I want, without having to step over buttered popcorn or candy wrappers.






HeadFinder iPhone App Review

image

 

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.



Wall of Sound - cool free way to browse your collection!

image

Can't count how many music player alternatives I have tried over the years (have to take off my shoes for sure). Suffice to say, I can't really say any jumped out and made me go, "THAT'S IT!"--like Charlie Brown's epiphany when Lucy tells him he has the fear of everything. Wall of Sound didn't really make me do that, except maybe a little bit. Then it had a couple of glitches, so I calmed down. Still, it is pretty well done for a freebie, and provides a unique way to find and play tunes...



JumiCam iPhone App Review

image

The JumiCam app allows you to view streaming video from any web cam you want with ease.  I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to set up the software on my PC and then connect from my phone to see what’s going on at my house.  The JumiCam app also works very well on either a 3G connection or WiFi which I was initially concerned about because streaming video can sometimes have issues on 3G. 



Filamente SharePoint App Review

Filamente SharePoint is an app that every professional should have.  Especially for those that are constantly involved with documents; this app is perfect for your needs.  In a basic sense; Filamente allows you to upload, download, and share all of your desired documents.  Even though that doesn’t seem like much; if you do a lot of business from your iPad or iPhone, then you realize the difficulty in viewing and uploading certain documents due to format.  Luckily; this is where Filament SharePoint comes in to make things easier.
