Within the past decade, mobile devices have allowed us all to communicate with others in variety of ways – calling, texting, tweeting, emailing, and the list goes on and on. Such a convenience comes with a price though. Mobile devices are just that – mobile, and it’s just as easy to slip the phone in your pocket as it is for it to slip out of your pocket. When that happens, let’s hope you had Prey installed. Continue reading →

The Google+ Android app has been downloaded at least 1 million times, and just two days ago Apple approved the official Google+ iPhone app. Just one day after it’s release, you can find the app as the top free app in Apple’s App Store.

Trillian: An Old Friend New Again

Back in the day I used to be an avid chat user. To keep up with all my buddies on chat I used a plethora of instant messenger programs. This happened over time as one messenger program replaced another, but alas there were always the few friends who wouldn’t switch. So I had to keep all these programs to keep in touch with all my friends.

I used a program back then called Trillian (yes, named after the girl from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy). It was the first of its kind: a program that integrated all messenger programs into one interface. As time went on I started chatting less, and friends migrated primarily to MSN. Trillian was forgotten until about a month ago when I was browsing the new Mac App store, and behold there was Trillian. Has Trillian changed with the times? Can it integrate my new social addictions? Yeah, maybe it can. Continue reading →

My New Addiction: Tiny Wings for iPhone

I’m not a frequent visitor to the Apple App Store. I update my apps and get out quickly. I don’t browse. I don’t rate apps, and I especially don’t read the god-awful reviews. So you’re probably wondering how I find out about new apps. It’s always through word of mouth. If someone writes a blog post of a worthy app, I’ll download it. Or maybe someone tweeting about a favorite app. You get the idea. There is a collection of apps I have installed, and I usually just stick with those.

And then there are the games. I like playing video games, but I rarely play them on my iPhone. It’s not very often I come across an app (let alone a game) that makes me want to jump on my phone at any chance I get. All this changed a few days ago when I stumbled across an app called Tiny Wings. God help me. This game is addicting. Continue reading →
