Finance is one area of my life where I always like to feel that I am in control and I know what is going on. When I was single it was easy to handle, but now with a wife, her small business and a son, the financial accounts have grown and become a little more complicated. I still want to stay on top of things and like to make sure that we are doing okay, but now I get a little help from an app called Personal Capital.
I have the bad habit of never keeping a very good record of our money, in that I don’t log somewhere every time we make a transaction. With debit cards and automatic withdrawals, it has made that process so much harder, in my opinion. What I would do is that I would just check my bank accounts every day to make sure that the transactions that took place the previous day, matched up with what I thought it should be. That can be a tedious process, and so I began searching for an app that could help me out, and that is where Personal Capital came into play for me. (more…)

The idea of “tethering” a phone to your computer is nothing new. However, as data plans become cheaper and more inclusive, the appeal of tethering is far greater than ever before. The basic idea involves connecting your iPhone to your Mac or PC – either over Bluetooth, or using a cable – to provide access to the web on your computer over 3G.
There are numerous solutions to achieve this, and we’ll be looking at a few different options today. Some of them depend heavily on the country you’re based in. Tethering isn’t officially supported in the US on AT&T yet, but rumours suggest that it’s coming in the next month or two.
Read on to find out how tethering works, and how you can start sharing that data connection with your computer!
Sahil Lavingia has created an application called Dayta (in a week!) that allows you to track almost anything! The app gives you the freedom to choose the unit of measurement for your data log, leading to an almost endless variety of potential uses for the app.
Dayta is a unique application to the App Store because it doesn’t focus on tracking just one item. The only limit to what you can track is your imagination. Participants in the test group tracked data such as days absent from smoking, kill to death ratio in Call of Duty and even how many words they have memorised in Japanese.
In this review, we’ll be taking a look at how to set the application up, and how the process of inputting and tracking your “data” works.
