Send Video Directly to Your YouTube Channel


YouTube is clearly the place most people go to post their videos... at least for now.

Historically, it has been a multiple step process. However, Google has released an app called YouTube Capture to simplify the process. After you shoot your video, all you have to do is edit by trimming, stabilizing, color correcting or adding a music track, then send the video to your YouTube channel. That's it. Can you say Easy?

Never Miss Perfect Holiday Photos


Back in January I wrote a review of an amazing photo editing app called Groupshot (read it here). In short, it is an app that lets you take the best shots of people in multiple photos and merge them into one. It's the time of year again when you'll probably be taking family photos and will need to edit weird looks out of the final picture. Groupshot is the best app for doing just that. It's still only $.99

iPhone Maps App Update

It's all good in my world. Since Apple kicked Google Maps to the curb, they have been dodging arrows from critics because it's not perfect. I am not about to apologize or justify for Apple, only check in about my real life testing here in rural Vermont.

Panorama Photos for Free


I think I have written about DMD - (Dermander) before, but if you haven't heard of them before, DMD is a panorama app. It may seem redundant with iOS 6 having a native app, but I know quite a few people holding off upgrading, plus the app is now free for a time.

Free Stock Photos!

I just got a notice that the pro stock photo website Dreamstime.com is offering 3 free stock photos for anyone new that registers on their site in the next 24 hours. They have a huge collection of stock and royalty free photos of just about anything you can imagine. I use them frequently for photos for website banners and general photos.

Once you register at dreamstime.com, simply type in nf123 as a discount code and you will instantly have credit for three photos of your choice. I think once you see what they have to offer, you'll be downloading more photos in the future.

As John Hodgeman would say.....You're Welcome.

The Jury Is In, You Owe $1 Billion




That's what Samsung heard today.

The trial we have all been paying attention to has arrived at it's initial decision. Although we are smart enough to know that it's not over and that there will be appeals and other legal maneuvering, the largest question has been answered. The jury took a short time to conclude that Samsung did indeed infringe 7 out of 8 of Apples patents.

What's Within Walking Distance?


What Is Within Walking Distance?

If one of the parameters for finding a place to live is being close to shopping or theaters or parks, this is the app for you.

It scores potential neighborhoods for their 'walk score'. That is, what's within walking distance from your home.
Simply, it's called Walk Score (free).

Let Birds Transfer Your Photos


There I was on Thursday listening to Leo Laporte's podcast that I had downloaded on my iPhone. One of his guests was talking about a new app called Chirp. It's an app that transfers photos and some types of data by sound from one iOS device to another.

"But I can do that through iMessage or by e-mail" I hear you say....and you are right.

More Than Just Contact Management for Real Estate


I have been searching for a contact manager that integrates with real estate since the iPhone was launched. I have even worked with a developer to build one from scratch. That didn't pan out as expected so I continued searching. Many apps go part of the way in merging contacts, calendars & to do's as well as integrate tracking listings, showings and closing info.

Pocket Informant On Sale Again


I know I have written about this app multiple times, but I still rely on it as my go-to calendar app and feel so strongly about it that I would feel guilty if I let this opportunity go by without letting you know.
