Tracking those expenses – Company Mileage Logger

Available for Android and iOS, this is a simple application which will help you log business journeys. It’s ideal for claiming back your mileage later and lets you concentrate on the road rather than having to fiddle about with paperwork. Using GPS, the app comes in a

Mini Ninjas, now free

Nope. I’ve never heard of it. Sorry. Apparently though, lots of people have. This thing has had over 6 million downloads. It’s been available for 99c or 69p (yes, yes, I know that 99c is, in fact, 58p, but …) … now it’s free. You can get

Apple hook up with IBM to get further into your business

I remember laughing when business people started buying iPads. “Pah. They’ve got it all wrong”, I thought, “that’s not a business tool”. Even though a lot of tasks were still perhaps better done on a Windows laptop at the time, the iPad and iPhones took over and

New Sonic game hits Fever pitch

Apologies in advance for that “local free newspaper”-style headline that crow-bars the word “Fever” from “Sonic Jump Fever” in, it’s still early. :) Sega, who are perhaps best known for this intro sound would like me to mention their new Sonic game. It’s called “Jump Fever” and

blinkbox music – The new boy on the streaming scene

Tesco have sent me something. I think it’s because I’ve started shopping in Aldi more. Who knows, but they are trying to grab my attention. They own blinkbox music, which is another offering alongside their blinkbox TV and movie streaming service. Considering they’ve not sent the Coolsmartphone

Hooligans ‘The Bravest’ iOS revew

We’re British, it is therefore in our bones to love booze, brawls, and the beautiful game… In a twist to the myriad World Cup games comes a novel approach: Hooligans ‘The Bravest’. What can we expect of this celebration of all that makes us proud? According to

Saving a few quid on your purchases

Getting yourself a good deal, it’s always a bit of a minefield. You’ll no doubt have seen people in supermarkets, clothes and electronics stores using their phones to get a better deal on items they’re looking at in store. What apps are they using? How are they

WinZip for iOS – Now with Google Drive and OneDrive support

The people from WinZip contacted me. I figured I’d listen because I’ve pretty much used their software for absolutely ages, so I owe them. Anyhoo, they’ve now announced a new iOS app which costs a mere £1.49 (provided you buy it either today or tomorrow). There’s now

Token news item featuring Wayne Rooney

Clickbait? Us? Never. This one is a risky release, especially just a few hours before England play a vital World Cup match, but still, here’s Wayne Rooney with his football training app. It’s called a “soccer” training app because there’s apparently some confusion with some other sport

Controlling Pandora’s box

I know I’ve mentioned it before, and yes, I’m guilty of repeating myself. However, it’s something I’d like to bang my drum about because, for the most part, people tend to switch off when the words “online safety” are mentioned. Still there? Good, because a recent survey

Give your phone flower power!

If there’s one thing I’m never really much good at, it’s watering the plants. During my recent bike ride to Paris pretty much everyone at home forgot and my hanging baskets sadly fired dried up and became hanging soil carriers. It’s either a sad statement on modern

Get your uff-uff and your agga pang

If like a bit of Igglepiggle, Makka Pakka and Upsy Daisy then you’ll probably want to climb into the Ninky Nonk and perhaps take a flight on the Pinky Ponk. If, however, you have no idea what I’m on about then you’ll probably think I’ve gone mad.

Like your cars? Try the Drive.net app to meet other enthusiasts

The big social networks are all well and good, but if you want to meet like-minded people you’re probably best to create your own social network. For car enthusiasts the Drive.net website is already a popular place to be, but now the mobile app (available on iTunes and Google

Stay updated with the World Cup on your mobile

OK, OK. Here’s the token World Cup news post. We have been bombarded with emails from PR agencies who are trying desperately to make their accessory, phone or app have something to do with football. This, though, is the official app from FIFA. FIFA have been accused

Which device’s will run iOS 8

Following last night’s announcement by Apple announcing iOS 8, the latest version of its mobile operating system for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch people are wondering which device’s it will run on. For the moment the good news is, that unless you are running anything older

BBC iPlayer update for Android & IOS

Not long after we had the news about Windows Phone getting a nice update to BBC iPlayer, we see another press release from the BBC to tell us about the updated Android and iOS version. This seems to follow on from the smart TV update in March,

Where am I? Help is at hand thanks to OS Locate

My recent charity cycle ride (feel free to donate) was all “on road”, so a quick check of Google Maps would let me know where the next turning was. Now, if you’re planning to go off road then you’re going to need something a bit better. Finding

Buying music to download? Oh, that’s so 2010

The world of music and entertainment has changed significantly over the last decade or so. Before that, we saw vinyl getting replaced by CD’s and then MP3′s. In the last decade people have switched from traditional brick-and-mortar shops to downloading tunes online. However, streaming music services like

TuneIn Radio fixes those little irritants

The recently refreshed TuneIn Radio app introduced us to a brand new UI and a clean design, however it also brought with it some additional “features” which weren’t well received. First was the lack of an exit button, which had been available before, whilst the second annoyance

iOS apps now running on Android

You can now run Apple apps on Android. Sure, that’s the headline but in reality the solution isn’t a retail boxed product as yet. The software is called “Cider” and, well, let’s just get this out of the way and show it in action shall we? Researchers

Roadchef have released an app. Stop press!

Roadchef want us to mention their app. Roadchef, if you weren’t aware, are one of the UK’s leading “Motorway Service Area operators”. If you, like me, live in the UK you’ll have no doubt encountered the motorway services. They’re a place where you meet mortgage advisors in

UK Transportation now comes to Google Maps

For some time now Google Maps has shown Transportation info for the USA. However, Google has now updated Great Britain too. You can now get directions for travel using public transportation. The app update is available now for iOS and Android, as well as on the web

Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed now available for nothing

Love Sonic? Interested in playing Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed but don’t want to pay? Hey, your luck is in my friend. The game is now free, and that’s across all platforms – iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and via Google Play on Android. It’s an exciting and

WWDC 2014, Keep June 2nd Free

It’s that time of the year again when Apple set their date for WWDC and we are inundated with ideas of what might be released this year. Will it be the Ipad 12, Iphone 26S, Mac OS 134.23.  Okay they are a bit over exaggerated but we

Exclusivity agreements blocking you from getting that latest game

Just recently the new version of Cut The Rope arrived on Android. Trouble is,  it’d been released months before on iOS. Watching an app or game being used by your mates which you can’t download is difficult and, according to the Wall Street Journal,  it’s due in

Don’t worry, Sky Go and Now TV is back!

A couple of days ago BBC iPlayer, Sky Go and NOW TV packed up for iOS users. The reason behind this seems a little mysterious, with a temporary work-around involving setting the date back a day, but that’d cause other issues trying to get onto the App
