I have always been heavy in some form or another. When I was a kid, it was just by a little bit — maybe five, ten pounds. In college, I put on the Freshman 15 eating ice cream sandwiches with chocolate milk. When I got older and my metabolism started to go, the pounds began to add up. Soon I was excessively heavy, to the point that I was concerned for my health, but a combination of depression, neglect and apathy kept me at status quo for years.
The birth of my first child didn’t change that. The birth of my second didn’t either, but it was a wake-up call when a close friend of mine died, and he was just a few years older than me. That’s when I decided I had to do something about my weight or else I’d never see my kids make it to college. And that’s when I turned to my iPhone to get it going. (more…)
Navigating the world of wine can be complicated. Some people (like myself) love to geek out on all the details (grape variety, region, terroir), but most people just want something delicious to drink with dinner tonight. It’s all too easy for many wine apps to get lost in the details, failing to give users a mobile experience that makes selecting a wine easier. The goal is to provide good information that helps users make quick decisions on the go. Plonk promises to keep things simple, helping you find wines you like based on your taste preferences. It’s a great concept, but can Plonk deliver? (more…)
Lately, I have been in a bit of a rut food-wise. Each week, I seem to be eating the same old meals, day in and day out, and so when browsing the App Store for a solution, it is easy to see why Dinner Spinner caught my eye.
Dinner Spinner is a free app developed by popular food website AllRecipes.com. It contains thousands of recipes that are displayed at random by simply shaking your iPhone. Sound interesting? Hit the jump to find out more. (more…)
I’ve made it no secret that I love the new Flickr. I think it’s a great way to share photos. I use it for my business all the time to privately share photos with my clients using Flickr’s Guest Pass feature, and so far they’ve all loved the experiences, too.
But nothing is perfect. It’s nice to see alternative takes on a product we love, so I was really excited to see Pure for Flickr. It’s a lightweight, minimalist way to browse Flickr photos. Naturally, I downloaded it right away. Read on to find out more. (more…)
Innovation has stagnated for productivity apps on the web. On the mobile front however, multitouch interfaces have opened up the floodgates of creativity. Productivity apps like Clear, Soonr, Any.DO, Wunderlist and many others push the limits of the platform to make staying productive fun and efficient.
The latest to join the list is Task Player, which is doubly unique. It targets the niche of pomodoro users and lets you play your tasks like music! I’m equally curious to see what that’s all about. Join me after the jump! (more…)
Probably my least favorite thing about creating tasks is scheduling. I always end up with a giant task list filled to the brim with todos all scheduled for tomorrow or, worse yet, yesterday. I never take the time to schedule tasks because all that scrolling and figuring out what day of the week July 30 falls on is such a pain.
Good news, gamers! If you’ve run out of things to play on your iPhones, you’ll find five excellent titles to liven up your fun folder.
Everything from classic tower defense, an industry-leading shoot-em-up, innovative runners and stunning pocket aviation await you after the jump … (more…)
This is not something that we do here at iPhone.AppStorm. We don’t do interviews with people who have Kickstarter projects, because otherwise that’s all we’d do. But in this case, I will freely admit that I’m biased. That’s because Adam Holcomb from The UDDA is not only a talented artist and designer, but he’s also one of my favorite people.
Adam and I worked together at a magazine in Arizona back in 2008. He was the quiet art director in the corner who only opened his mouth to say something crazy, and I was the new guy who was in a bit over his head. He was — and is — excessively talented in what he does, and that’s why when he approached me about a new iPhone app that he was working on, there was just no way that I could turn him down.
