September 3rd saw the launch of the much awaited for PostSecret app. If you are a regular follower of PostSecret then you, no doubt, were aware of the impending launch. But in case you don’t follow PostSecret, let me bring you up to speed. PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where individuals craft a postcard that contains a secret and then anonymously send it to Frank Warren, the creator of the project. Every Sunday a selection of those postcards appear on the PostSecret blog.

Up until now, viewing and interacting with the secrets was limited. Each week only about twenty secrets were posted on the blog along with a small handful of selected comments. The PostSecret app now changes this. Owners of the app are able to discover new secrets as they are uploaded by users, can share their own secrets via the app and the opportunity to interact with posted secrets is now possible. This review will walk you through the nuts and bolts of the app including the process of discovering, sharing and replying to secrets.

There is nothing worse than standing in the middle of the supermarket with a copy of a recipe for “Ultimate Double Chocolate Cake” that you pulled off the Internet and realizing that all the ingredients are in a measurement system not used in your country. Sure, the Internet can help you convert those measurements, but it can be long-winded, time-consuming and let’s face it, you don’t always have an Internet connection.

Luckily, that’s where the app Kitchen Calculator Pro can step in and save the day (or at least the recipe). Kitchen Calculator Pro lets you quickly and easily convert measurements and scale recipes. So, no matter if you are standing in your kitchen or in the supermarket, you can always convert the amounts into a measurement unit that works for you. Let’s run through how the app works in more detail and explain what the various buttons do.

There was a time back in primary school when my class had a math lesson that involved sticking to a budget as we went around the classroom ‘buying’ things with money that distinctively resembled Disney Dollars. That was the first and last time that I can remember finding the task of sticking to a budget and tracking expenses as being fun. That was until I came across the app, Toshl.

No longer will you need to hastily scribble your expenses on a crumpled piece of paper or try to mentally calculate how much of your holiday spending budget you have blown on drinks and tacky souvenirs. A few taps in the Toshl app and all will become clear, complete with a few nifty graphs thrown in for good measure. Whether you want to keep track of all your expenses or just a one off budget, such as your Christmas shopping, Toshl can be a real life (and hair) saver. Let’s take a look at Toshl’s main features, functionality and performance.
