How to stay on task with OmniFocus

image

Juggling school, work, volunteer activities and personal time is not easy. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for a better way to prioritize and manage my time. I recently received a review copy of the OmniFocus iPhone app (Omni Group (http://www.omnigroup.com) along with the OmniFocus desktop application for Macintosh. After working through the tutorials and using the OmniFocus system for the last three month, I’m delighted to say I’ve found the perfect solution for me!

A New Way to Give: Shopping!

image

I love apps that not only are useful, but make me feel good. The Real Miracles app fits the bill perfectly.   This app supports The Children’s Miracle Network, which is one of the leading children’s charities in the world that helps in fundraising efforts for 170 Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. With this app, you easily find out more information about The Children’s Network, the children it is helping, or local Children's Miracle Network hospitals. Making a donation is easy: you can use your Paypal account or simply add $5 to your phone bill with just a few clicks.



Turbo Subs: Makin' Sandwiches At High Speed

image

If you’re familiar with Cake Mania, your first impression of Turbo Subs is going to be “isn’t this Cake Mania in a sub shop?”  In some ways it feels like it, though as far as I’m concerned that’s merely a testament of how well the Cake Mania format of game play works.  Turbo Subs has its own atmosphere, its own set of challenges, and its own rewards.  Best of all, it’s just as fun as Cake Mania.  Game play can get quite frantic, but in the end it’s all worth it and the game is a delight to play.



Vary your routine - with Routine Timer

image

My wife likes to run early in the morning, but her running routine alternates ten minutes of running with a one-minute walk-break. If you're out there in the darkness of pre-dawn, how do you figure out when to go from one to the other?

With your iPhone, of course! 

Nancy wasn't happy with the simple timer included as one of the base apps, though it's served me well as a one-time alarm. So she searched the App Store and found Routine Timer (Practiphone LLC, $2.99 limited time price they say).

With this app, she starts with a walk of five minutes, just to get the blood going. When it's time to run, she's got a metal gong sounding.

CopterKid: New Face On An Old Favorite

image

You've probably played the game before, though the protagonist is usually a helicopter or spaceship and more often than not you're confined to some subterranean tunnel system.  Copter Kids definitely breaks the mold from the perspective of atmosphere, but there's not much else to set it apart from the pack.  A silly back story, cute visuals and decent music are not fully utilized on what's mostly "just another clone".



TechCrunch Reviews WorldMate 1.5...a Traveller "must-have"!

image

TechCrunch and the folks at WorldMate recently sponsored a giveaway (sorry this is too late for our readers to get it on the action), and in the posted blog review, TC called it the "Swiss army knife" of travel apps. Anyhoo, I'll see if we can get a contest going here in the near future for the Gold version.



Lose weight with your iPhone - I did!

image

In the spring 2009 issue of iPhone Life, I wrote about how to "Lose Weight with the iPhone." The photo that illustrated the piece showed my 11-pound weight loss in two months. I was standing at 199 at the time - down from 210 at Christmas.

I also wrote that the Edibles app said that I'd have to get down to 170 before I could consider myself "healthy." Well, on August 3rd I tipped the same scale at 169.8 pounds! I followed my own advice and did what my iPhone told me I was allowed to do.
