App Review: Location Alerts

Wouldn’t it be swell if we’re to have someone or something remind us of what we’re supposed to do or even send text messages for us when we know we wouldn’t be able to hold our phones? For the reminding bit, yes, there are quite a number of apps dedicated to do just that but what if we roll it into one with an application that can both remind us of the things we have to do and send out text messages or dial calls? I bet that’s going to be a wonder unto itself because forgetting is as innate as breathing unless you have a photographic memory. But if you’re a common app monger who clings on mobile software to make your routinary life more bearable and easy, take a look at Location Alerts, an app triggered by your vicinity, which can do all the mundane things for you.

Handy Memo: Easy, Fast and Neat Note-Taking!

In a student’s lifestyle, it is very inevitable for them to take down notes with a use of a pen and paper.

Have you ever made a bet with your friends that you could do something for a few bucks?

Jot down your Notes on Life

Writing is considered as one of the best and powerful expression of one’s thoughts, feelings and desires. Some people would be more comfortable when they keep everything in private – no one has a say on whatever they are going through. To most people, their best bud would be their handy dandy little notebook where they can write, draw or even plan out something that pops in their head. This notebook full of blank pages may be filled up with plans, dreams, desires, imaginations and everything in between. But having separate notebooks for each would be such a hassle when all we want to do is to enjoy the comfort of living in this high-tech world, right?

I know we can’t remember everything so writing them down on a piece of paper is a very essential thing to do. For the creative artists, having a platform that they can grab easily and bring with them everywhere is a big help in making their lives easier. Whether you’re a poet, an artist, or an Obsessive Compulsive parent, I’m pretty sure I got everything you need in just one application.

Whatever life throws at you, be ready to document it and keep it on your little virtual notebook because Notes on Life got you covered.

As you ponder on your daily musings on life, why don’t you read on my Android app review for more life-changing details after the break.

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.

App Review: Photo Printing + Mail Delivery

This digital age where everything is contained in cyberspace to be immortalized as long as the internet exists makes tangible things slant toward the obsolete side. It’s too obvious a scene that no soul can possibly claim the opposite. However convenient and clutter-free we may be because of the efficient cloud storages at our disposal, there will always be a file or a photo that’s much better appreciated if printed.

Bulky photo albums that used to be piled up under the center table in the living room are being replaced by digital albums on Facebook or other social networking sites whathaveyou. Instead of flipping pages and pages of the past, all we do now is click ourselves away. There’s no question about the convenienve technology brings because photos are probably safer in an invisible storage. But if you prefer images that are printed out, then you might wanna check this app called .
