Traveling with your iPhone


These apps make business trips or vacations easier and a lot more fun!


 The iPhone can help you do just about anything, and if one of the built-in apps can’t handle the task, one or more of the 50,000 plus titles in the App Store can. A good example of this is travel. Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Maps, Weather, and other built-in apps can be a godsend when you’re on the road, but there are hundreds of App Store titles that can make your travels even easier and more enjoyable.

A Busy Baby Boomer's Life

A day in the life of a very busy baby boomer—and the apps that help her get things done.

Weather  Channel MaxiNewsAlbert Einstein was once asked how many feet are in a mile. He answered, “I don’t know. Why should I fill my head with things like that when I could look them up in any reference book in two minutes?” Like Einstein, I’d rather not keep everything in my head either. Unlike Einstein, I don’t have to look it up in a book—I’ve got an iPhone in my pocket!

Free Entertainment Apps!

Stream music, find movies and games, and stay on top of entertainment news

There are few words that grab your attention like “free”! If you can get your hands on something without spending your hard earned money, it feels like Christmas. Since I purchased my iPhone, I’ve found that there are a lot of excellent apps available for free; you just have to do a little digging to find them.

Some of my favorite applications are found in the Entertainment category. I love spending my spare time listening to music, watching movies, and playing games. In this article, I look at some of the best free apps I’ve found. They keep me entertained and help keep money in my wallet.

Social Networking on the iPhone

Myspace Mobile, Facebook, LinkedIn, Fresh Feed, and Personal Assistant—all on the iPhone

It is always amazing to watch the tides of change flow through the world of technology. It seems like just yesterday, e-mail was the big new mode of communication. (Imagine! You can write a letter and send it anywhere in the world…no stamp required.) Then instant messaging came along, but now it doesn’t seem quite instant enough for many users. Social networking is the hot new technology, giving users the ability to communicate instantly with large groups of people.

LOVE the new WeightWatchers App!

WeightWatchers Mobile App is everything a mobile app should be. I am currently on WeightWatchers and use the WeightWatcher’s e-tools. With this mobile app, I can now do everything I did on the Web site, on my iPhone.

When you first open the program (after you’ve registered your account), you will see a screen that shows your daily and weekly points remaining. From there, you can go to your favorites, recently added or featured recipes.

Review: Bricks Of Camelot from Donut Games

image

After a certain number of variations of a particular genre come out, you begin to wonder what else can be done with that style of game.  That’s the way I’ve felt about breakout clones for quite some time, especially since I don’t particularly care for the genre in the first place.  Then one came out called Bricks Of Camelot that caught my eye because of the slick visuals.  Once I found out that it was from Donut Games I had to give it a try.  Turns out that I have not been disappointed at all. In fact, for the first time I think I can say that I actually really enjoy a breakout style game.  There’s not really anything new in the mechanics of the game, but rather in the power ups and attention to detail in the environment that make this game so much fun.
