At a few of my past (and current) jobs it’s been necessary to send large photos and videos back and forth on Dropbox, and my attempts to request photos often got lost in the shuffle. Not to mention there were a few unfortunate Dropbox deleting accidents, which effectively wiped out entire folders. If only there was an app that was super simple to send, receive and store files and didn’t require clients and the occasional contributors to log in. Oh, and it would be nice to be able to have accurate data about all of those files, like when and who added to the folders and downloaded files. If only, right? Well, as luck would have it, ShareFile is on the horizon and it’s going to make life easier.
Find out how after the jump. (more…)
There was a bit of a ruckus in December when Instagram changed its Terms of Service and then changed them back. At the same time, Yahoo released an all-new Flickr app for iPhone that was clearly an Instagram competitor, but word on the street quickly grew and word was good: Flickr was a good competitor. I wasn’t attached to Instagram and decided to give it a shot over the holidays to see if I would prefer it, and I’m glad I did.
Flickr has been around since 2004 in many different iterations, with this app being their most recent stab at remaining relevant. Flickr is more professional than Instagram — I’d argue in a whole other league (not unlike 500px, reviewed here), but its embracing of filters makes it real competition for that other app. Flickr isn’t perfect (we’ll get into that), but as an app, I like it more than I like Instagram.

There are apps we discover because we need them, and then there are apps we discover and then only later come to realize how useful they are. For most people, I would think that Sitegeist will fall into that latter category.
Allowed to use your current location, Sitegeist can present you with a wealth of information pertaining to where you live or are vacationing. What kind of information? Everything from the median age and annual household income of local residents to the weather report, nearest movie theater, and best place to eat breakfast. Click through to take a look. (more…)
As a tech guy, I tend to collect way too much “stuff,” whether it be the latest iPhone case, or some other random tech gadget that I impulsively bought on Kickstarter. My wife is making me get rid of some of the things that I hardly use, and so I started my quest to find a good way to make some cash selling it. I could go the eBay route, but that takes too much time and it is such a hassle for smaller things. I could also use Craigslist, but you just never know what kind of people you will find on there.
Then the other day I got an invite to try out Tangibles, which I forgot I had signed up for a while back. They just launched and I decided to give it a spin to see if it would be worth my time. We did a review of Yard Sale, which is somewhat similar, but I didn’t get many hits there, so I decided to give this one a try to see if I could have more luck getting rid of my stuff. (more…)
It’s always nice to find something with a truly new and inventive look, and that’s what I found with Clay Jam. The graphics are really surprising and charming to say the least, reminiscent of stop motion claymation. After downloading Clay Jam based solely on looks, I wondered if there was anything to the gameplay. Would this be just another pretty face that relied on nice graphics? Or is the action a match for the animation? (more…)
My wife is pregnant with our second child, and since we’re just over two months away from the big day, she’s already quite tired of carrying a few extra pounds. The other day she says, “I want to hit the gym after our little girl is born. Hard.” Good for her!
The last time we had gym memberships, we rocked our iPods and considered that enough. But today would we use our iPhones instead?
How about you? Do you use your iPhone to workout or do you use something else? Let us know in the poll to the right!

I have mixed feelings about most games that I play on my iPhone. Sure, they’re fun, particularly for quick spells here and there, but put me in front of something that takes more time and I just lose interest.
But then there are games that go above and beyond the normal. They’re easy to pick up and play, yet addictive enough to lose yourself in for hours. They’re puzzlers, yet there’s something still beneath the surface. That, in essence, is Hundreds. (more…)
