Now, I’m not saying all teenagers lack focus … but most do; I was one and you probably were also. Michael Sayman, however, is focused. With over 2 million downloads under his belt, and an iOS developer title at the ripe age of 12, this kid is one to watch. To that end, his latest endeavor is 4 Snaps, an app that brings together the best things of youth: friends, games and twerking.
Want to see what the cool kids are into these days? Sure you do. (more…)
I’ve made it no secret that I’m in love with App.net, but my review of Whisper made it pretty clear that I also love the apps being built on the service. Whisper is a phenomenal app worth every penny and in-app purchase.
You can find Jared Sinclair and Jamin Guy, the developers of both Riposte and Whisper, on App.net. I was so excited about Whisper that I just had to talk with them about the creative process behind it and what’s coming up in Whisper’s future. As you can see, they were happy to oblige. (more…)

Come on in to test your skills at adventuring, piloting submarines and even performing surgery! (more…)
Time is a great healer. With enough perseverance, it isn’t very hard to weather testing times knowing that it will all end one day. Alright, that was downright cheesy. But, it is so very true, isn’t it? Counting down to something spectacular is a great way to channel excitement or to secretly vent your anger.
Being able to see the countdown ticking whenever you want is a great way to stay motivated. And, now we have an app for that! The makers of Working Days Countdown didn’t actually put much effort into naming the app. With a verbose and self explanatory name, I hope they put some effort into making this app a fun one atleast. Let’s go check it out! (more…)
I don’t have time to read the news anymore; I barely have time to listen to my favorite news podcasts. It’s hard to stay informed, but I want to know what’s going on in the world. It’s just that trying to stay on top of all of the latest happenings is a lot of work.
Like a DJ in your pocket, Splyce is a beautiful music player that lets you select songs and order the playlist before mixing the beats, displaying visual effects, creating a light show and more. All it takes is just some basic instruction from you, and Splyce will get the party started.
Use the app as an everyday music player, at get-togethers with friends, or while you’re at the gym. The app displays the beats per minute for every song, so you can take that into consideration when crafting your playlist. Hit the jump and I’ll show you how it works. (more…)
Earlier this year, I adopted a seven-month-old Miniature Dachshund named Darwin. Sadly, Darwin did not have the best start in life, and arrived with no knowledge of basic obedience cues. Needless to say, I immediately enrolled Darwin in a six-week training course but since then, I have also discovered Dog Training Academy, which I plan on running alongside the course.
Dog Training Academy promises to help teach your dog to do just about anything, eliminating the need for expensive training courses and complicated literature, which is a very bold claim indeed. But can Dog Training Academy actually replace the structure and socialization of an obedience class? Find out after the jump. (more…)

It’s that time of year—back to school! I used to love starting a new school year every autumn because it meant new clothes, reconnecting with old friends and a fresh start. A lot of people mourn the end of summer, though, so luckily my latest app pick will satisfy everyone by inspiring vibrant, delicious packed lunches to provide brain fuel for the whole day.

Let’s be honest, the stock Calendar app on the iPhone isn’t that great. If it was everything some of us made it out to be, we probably wouldn’t go searching for alternatives like Fantastical or Horizon (my preferred app). But every calendar app I tried was still missing something that seemed like an intuitive addition to me: Reminders integration.
Every calendar app except Agenda, that it is. Agenda 4.0 is a rethinking of the popular app that includes integration with Reminders and a host of other features that’s going to keep app junkies really happy. In fact, I’d wager to say most app junkies already have it. But is it for everybody? Read on to find out. (more…)
