Wordflex Oxford Dictionary Now Free!

image

The Wordflex Touch Dictionary (free) is the most beautifully rendered touch-based reference technology you will hold in your hand. I only barely exaggerate how amazing it is to use. The last thing I want to do when researching a topic or looking for word substitutes (like the word "amazing"—I so overuse that word) is have to crack open an actual dictionary or thesaurus. It's both boring and silly in 2015. Why not watch the English language and it's various phylum unfold in graceful symmetry on the iPad screen!? The new version is now available without the need to spend one's shekels to attain it. Witness the beauty after the break!

Party People, Follow Your Favorite Bartenders with Hoozetending

image

I've been using an app called Hoozetending (free) from Hoozetending, Inc. The idea is to let potential customers and partygoers know which of their favorite bartenders is working where and when, and what deals their favorite establishments have to offer. Of course, users can discover new places and bartenders, too. It's a bit like Pinterest for nightlife.

Leef iBRIDGE Mobile Memory Adds Storage But at a Price

image

Leef gave me their iBRIDGE Mobile Memory (starts at $59.99) to try. I wanted to like it, but I have mixed feelings. It does the job, which is to provide extra storage for your iOS device, and allow for easy transfer between those iOS devices and a computer. But there are some deficiencies.

image

Skylink allowed me to try its SK-200 Alarm System Starter Kit ($149.99). This is a compact, easily giftable solution for anyone looking for home security without the contract and monthly payments. Because it is mostly wireless and compact, it could be a great solution for apartment or dorm dwellers looking to add a little security without permanently installing a wired system.



App Review: getAbstract

image

In a world of digital content, publishersnow a wider range of publishers than ever— while continuing to create bound books, increasingly create digital-only publications. Combine all those books with economics reports from think tanks and talks on the TED stage, and business people looking for the latest insight could spend more time trolling, curating, and reading than they do working and living. So in a world of outsourced assistance and quick returns comes the app getAbstract (free), from getAbstract, the company that condenses the essential lessons from business books and makes them available in a quick-to-read format.
