App Review: TimeAct Task Manager

In this day and era where most of people’s minds are bombarded with lots of non-sense trivial things, forgetting, it seems, is now as common as breathing. It’s as if technology has given us tons of stuff to think about which are perfectly camouflaged by the comfort it brings to our daily lives. A mobile device, offers instant communication but we can’t ever escape the tense feeling of guarding the device with all our might. Too much information means there are lesser space for us to think about the mundane but essential tidbits of our dailies; deadlines, for one.

Okay, there’s more to life than deadlines because there are also birthdays, anniversaries, getaways, holidays, first day of classes… etc. Unless you have a photographic memory or just a bad-ass type of brain that can remember things and shizz, then good for you. But for the unfortunate ones, we ought to rely on a trustee planner to dictate everything for us instead. Although that’s not forever the case, because we can even forget to write important reminders in the planner itself. Sad, isn’t it? But there might be a cure to that! Since what we can’t possibly forget is to bring our mobile devices with us, why not equip it with a task managing app that has all the right quirks to keep you in track? Read all about this Android app called after the cut.

Top 3 Thai Recipe Apps for iOS

It’s not only the Chinese, Japanese, and the Koreans whose national cuisines are being embraced worldwide. Yes, their delicious masterpieces might be the top sought after concoctions in Asia—or in any other continent—but the other yellow-skinned countries also have a lot to take pride for. An example of which is Thailand with their rich blend of spices and ingredients that makes their delicacies crave-worthy. Although their food might look bland caused by the simplicity of its color, believe you me, it’s far more than what meets the eye. From the first bite to the last, expect some good ‘ol yummy goodness that will keep you asking for another serving!

Since Applatter likes Thai cuisine so much (read on other Thai recipe apps), here are three more additions that should be included in the list. So instead of dining out, why not try and make your own Thai meal with these apps that’s sure to guide you in the process or stretch your tongue and say the food you want instead of pointing it out on the menu to the waiter. *wink*

iExplorer HD: A Multi-Purpose File Management Tool

Now that 2012 is drawing a close, it’s safe to assume that a new year means better business.

One of the good things about the current technology available at our fingertips will always be mobility. Nowadays we only have to take our mobile device (read: iPad) with us to access work-related files in a jiffy.

When it comes to managing files, Zhigang Chen’s iExplorer HD takes things to another level as it lets you access plenty of your files and lets you complete tasks anywhere you go.

iExplorer HD allows you to connect to remote servers such as Dropbox, Google Docs, WebDAV, and even SkyDrive. The productivity app is packed with features for your business as it is essentially a key to all the files you’ve got tucked somewhere. Reading files (including eBooks!) can take bit of time, though, since you will need to fully understand how the entire business application works and what it can do for you.

And once you’ve successfully synced your files, you can always view files offline if the server is not reachable.

Digital Scrapbooking with Coolibah!

A single photograph can hold a multitude of memories. One glance and your eyes and mind will be filled with different emotions as you absorb the creeping aura of that moment in time, captured through the eyes of another. It is meant to be stored, displayed even. And with each photograph I see, my mind goes on auto-pilot as I reach out to create a story in my mind on what could have happened right there and then when the photo was taken. The value of a single photograph during the “film camera” days are graver than what we have now. Having limited shots, people always made sure to have the Kodak moments immortalized but theses days, with our digital cameras, we can release our shutterbug selves and capture every single minute of an occasion.

Although digital photographs may prove to be a higher form of photography since you can produce high definition shots which you can choose from and keep without cluttering the house. That reminds me, I have a scrapbook back at home which is now collecting dust bunnies under my bed. All its blank pages scared me because I felt like it’s gonna be an epic fail if I dare try to create something so beautiful and artsy. And I have no knack of choosing the right materials to make everything work. All these years, I thought that making my own wonderfully messy scrapbook was a lost not until I accidentally saw an application called .
