Planner S, “Social Diary” Merges Friends and Functionality in a New Way



A social networking integrated calendar app?  That’s what AKAON seems to have launched in the App Store.  I was skeptical, but the more you play with Planner S, the more sense it makes. It’s own kind of quirky sense, to be sure, but sense.



It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year—For Shopping Apps!


It’s the holidays, people.

I’ve got my credit card out and I’m ready to hit the shopping mall, baby! Let’s do this!



More like, I’ve got a thermos full of “special” hot chocolate in my coat pocket and an intense hatred for parking garages, filthy men’s rooms, and interminably long lines.

Oh, and bleeding money for a month solid? I’m not a fan.

Holiday shopping makes weep like Frosty the Snowman on a sunny day, but I managed to find a few apps that make it a little less painful, and I thought I’d share them with you today—just in time for you to hit the mall.

iPhoneCaptain Goes HollyWood w/ Jon Brandmeier


A few weeks ago, I had the honor of meeting Jon Brandmeier. We discussed the passing of Steve Jobs and also the iPhone 4S. He's a great guy who has had many great accomplishments. Brandmeier currently has his own show that he hosts at NBC Chicago. What a way to have your first interview. He has a great show covering many topics. Check out the short clip of my interview with Brandmeier. I was so nervous, I thought I was going to fall out of my chair.

The best iCade / iControlPad games Part I

I've always liked ­playing on my mobile devices, even back in the Pocket PC / Windows Mobile / Palm OS days. They revitalize me quite a lot, particularly after a hard, exhausting day.

Playing without physical controls (buttons), only using the touchscreen, is pretty hard. This includes a lot of game types, particularly ones where quick direction changes are needed and / or you can't make the smallest mistake and must be absolutely sure even the smallest movements on the directional pads (D-pad for short) is registered. In games like these, physical D-pad / button feedback is of extreme importance.
