Fast Flashlight - It Does What It Says

Fast Flashlight – It Does What It Says

iOS developers tap tap tap of Camera+ fame have released a new, cutting edge and dead simple app which features flat design and does just one thing; turn on the flashlight. What follows will be the most ridiculous, inane and undeniably the most fun app review I’ll have ever written. There’s something about human beings -- call it the eternal struggle, call it the human condition, call it our knack for being easily distracted -- that...

Only A Fool Steps In Dog Poop While Texting

Only A Fool Steps In Dog Poop While Texting

On an almost daily basis, I nearly walk into someone on the street because one, or both of us, is trying to send a text message while walking. Since thought-reading cell phones don't exist yet, and I personally think dictating text messages in public is still creepy and weird, there must be a different solution to this very specific problem... right? Enter Sidewalk Buddy, a fairly new Android app designed specifically for this purpose. The...

Photoshop Touch For iPhone And Android

Photoshop Touch For iPhone And Android

Oh yes. This app is modeled after the big time desktop photo editing software on Mac and PC, and has finally found its way onto the iPhone and Android smartphones for your on-the-go photo editing needs. For years I’ve tried to predict exactly when anyone might have the guts to develop such software for a device that has just a fraction of a computer’s power. Smartphones and tablets are still a hot topic with...

Use An App To Get Sex? You’re Doing It Wrong!

Let’s start here: There exists such a thing as an app called “Bang With Friends.” As you might expect, the app is all about facilitating coitus between friends, because that’s something our society needs. (No no, settle down, Harper…don’t get angry yet.) This app is meant to “confidentially” bring two amorous and heterosexual Facebook friends together in the throes of lust. Of course, it’s only confidential if your friends don’t sign up for the service, which totally ruins...

Phone App For Your Inner Smart-Ass

What’s the best way to be the life of the party? Have something interesting to share, of course. Did you know rats don’t possess the capability to throw up, or did you know Ivan the terrible blinded his architects after the finished St. Basil’s Cathedral? Crazy, huh? These are things I just learned. They’re also practically useless unless I end up on Jeopardy or Who Wants to be a Millionaire, but that’s beside the point. In my weekly...

Sex On The App-le

Sex On The APP-le

With more than a half million apps available for download at the App Store, Apple by far has the most apps available in any one spot on the web, and most likely also offers the widest array of categories. However, one category Apple has tried to keep out of the limelight is perhaps the one many people want to see more of. The tech giant has tried hard to keep content in its App Store...

Keep Your Influence In The Palm Of Your Hands

Do you blog, own a business, or just want to measure your online influence? Ever wanted to know how you stack up to other people in your industry or field of interest online? There’s an app for that. The app that measures a users’ online presence, Klout, is now available for iOS and Android users, and is probably soon to be the next big thing. It’s kind of a mixture of Pinterest, and Twitter, without actually being...

Epic Fail: Apple Map App Slammed!

Epic Fail: Apple Map App Slammed!

Released yesterday as part of Apple’s iOS 6 update, the Map App is already being heavily criticized around the globe for a whole host of errors, including some major geographical blunders. Users have found misidentified cities, incorrect icons, unlabeled locations, and even duplicating an island group in the Pacific. One screw-up was picked up by Irish Minister for Justice Alan Shatter. He is urging Apple to remove the airline icon for Airfield House because the...

Fantasy Football Just Got A Little Easier

Love playing Fantasy Football? Then why don’t you already have this App? There’s nothing like spending your Sunday afternoons nestled into your favorite spot on the couch, the one with your butt grooves permanently impressed in it, dressed from head to toe in fan gear, watching your favorite team dominate the grid iron. A cold beer in your favorite Koozie, emblazoned with your team, a platter of chicken wings, or maybe some brats on the grill,...

Prank Caller’s Paradise: The “Pay-As-You-Go-Phone” App

The App Store and Crank Yankers made sweet sweet love, and the outcome was a handy app with a number of uses! I don’t know if I should be admitting this publically, but I absolutely loved crank calling people as a kid; my friends and I would stay up late into the wee hours of the morning crank calling all sorts of people from old teachers, to news stations, and doctors offices. We even recorded...
