Here in the U.S., T-Mobile has been the last carrier without the iPhone — at least officially. Unofficially, people have been buying iPhones and jailbreaking them to use on T-Mobile for years, because the AT&T model could be used with a T-Mobile SIM card.
But now, T-Mobile is carrying the iPhone, and they’re doing it without a contract. That’s right, you pay $99 for the iPhone initially, then $20/month for two years for a total of $580. The overall numbers aren’t quite a slam dunk, but it’s still pretty nice for people who want to get away from contracts.
If you live in the U.S., would you switch to T-Mobile for the iPhone? Let us know in the poll to the right!
Let me get one thing straight: The last thing that the world needs is another minimalist weather app. Honestly, take a quick look at the App Store and tell me the Weather category isn’t a little overcrowded. It used to be that weather apps were made for pretentious snobs who wanted to be able to tell their friends that the wind wasn’t just a little strong — “in fact, it’s blowing 55.3 km/hr northeast and it’s coming from the coast!” But maybe that’s overkill. Maybe minimalist weather apps have their place, because there’s something to be said for getting only the information that you need.
With that in mind, the most recent minimalist weather app to really trend the charts is Conditions. The basic idea is that Conditions only gives you the information that you need to get through your day: Temperature and, of course, current weather conditions. Can an elegant design outshine apps with more information? And more importantly, should it? (more…)
There are multiple theories on how to best track spending. Many people employ budgeting, while others choose to use alternative methods such as the envelope system. Personally, I’ve always found it best to simply keep track of my spending by using a checkbook app (I’m currently using Moni). But the main problem with most of these methods, especially my preferred method, is that most people simply don’t know what they’re using their money to buy.
Sure, I know in the immediate present that I purchased a tank of gas for $45, but how much am I spending on gas a month? Every once in awhile, I’ll break down my spending habits to get a bigger picture, and I’m always amazed on where I can cut costs. The problem is, it’s an extremely tedious task that I wish were a lot more simple. Developers noidentity hope to make big picture expense tracking very simple with their new app, Next. (more…)
We’re often admonished to be tourists in our own cities, and with money tight for a lot of people, a vacation in your own town isn’t such bad advice. It’s easier said than done, though, because we fall into ruts, visiting the same familiar restaurants, attractions and finding it hard to venture outside that bubble.
If I just had someone to tell me all the fun and cool things to do, I’d be fine. Well, Field Trip by Google does just that. It finds where you are and then tells you all the neat stuff nearby. But is Field Trip just another Google Maps search app or is there really something more here? (more…)
