Just like pretty much every single smartphone user around the planet, the first thing I do when I wake up (after I’ve come around, of course) is check my phone. Usually, it’s an endless list of notifications: e-mails, mentions on Twitter and pointless messages from apps such as appsfire saying that some generic freemium game is now offering me a complementary bag of gold or whatever (note to self: turn these off).
But besides all these notifications, I like to get a dose of what’s happening for the day. As a Brit, I need to know what the weather will be doing (as my life is based around it) and what appointments I’ve got coming up for the day and so on. Of course, I could check my calendar app (which is currently Agenda Calendar — highly recommended), my weather app and so on, but Top of the Morning from App Distillery lets you do this all from one screen. The developers very kindly provided me with a promotional code for the purposes of this review, so let’s dive straight in and see what it’s got to offer. (more…)
Even before the launch of the App Store, people were consumed with finding ways to be more productive. Technology has both hindered and attempted to help at solving that problem. The more things we do online, the more we find that we benefit from tools to help make those things easier and take them off our minds.
If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to be more productive. In fact, there are thousands of apps available on the app store dedicated to just that. One of those tools is the app Easilydo, which claims it can be your life assistant. That’s quite an impressive title to throw around. Read on to see if it lives up to that declaration. (more…)
There have been a few different assistant apps on the App Store in the past few years, including the popular Siri, which was so great that Apple bought it up. There are even rumors that soon Siri will be integrated into iOS 5, and we’ll all have personal assistants in our pockets.
Until then, Siri has languished from a lack of updates so in came Nuance Communications with their answer, Dragon Go! This is a voice-activated assistance app just like Siri, except on steroids. Want to know more? Hit that more link and let’s get talkin’.
