How did your relationship start?

I hate to admit it, but I’m old enough to remember a time before mobile phones were available. When I was a teenager we then started getting mobile phones, but apart from the odd text and a play with the ringtones there wasn’t a great deal you

That whole cartridge-buying nightmare. Sorted.

Watch out everyone, because I’ve had a few days off. This usually means that I have a number of articles where I need to get something off my chest. This is the sort of blog post that usually ends up on my personal blog but I guess,

When free really isn’t free

Wondering how the makers of mobile apps can afford TV advertising when they’re free to download? Well, we seem to quite like a model named “Freemium”. The word itself, which is a mash-up of “free” and “premium”, means that you get the entire game or app for

The Poppy Appeal enters the smartphone world

This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday. It’s the Sunday closest to Armistice Day on November 11th, the end of the First World War hostilities in 1918. It’s also a chance for us all to remember, commemorate and pay our respects to those who’ve fought for the freedom we

Chromecast app updated, now add your own backdrops

OK Google, can you work like the advert please?

You’ve seen those clever “OK Google” adverts on TV. There’s plenty of them and here in Old Blighty but one I spotted last night doesn’t actually work. It’s this one.. We’ve tested this particular scenario on iOS, Android and even the Chrome browser on a PC. The

Keep safe while you’re exercising with RunSafe

Going out running, cycling or even for a quick stroll is great for your health. Trouble is, if you get stuck or if your loved ones don’t know where you are, it can be tricky for them to call you. Especially when you’re bombing along on your

Oi! Oi! Saveloy! Become a DJ on the bus

I’ve just found a rather fantastic app. It’s one that popped up on the “Recommended” listings on Google Play and I just had to write about it here. This year, if you went to Ibiza, you may have noticed a few things about the DJs. Gone are

StartApp – iOS 8 supporting Mobile Ad Networks

Developers! So, you’ve done the hard bit. You’ve made your app, you’ve crafted it, you’ve spent many sleepless nights ensuring that it’s perfect and squishing any bugs that might be there. That, though, could be the easy bit. Getting noticed out there on the  internet, unless you’ve

Reviews is an iOS app targeted towards developers. It allows you to monitor reviews for apps from all App Store territories. The creators clearly have an eye for design: leaving out all unnecessary chrome and features. Reviews first opens without any apps added. This is probably for the

Fireman Sam shows how it’s done

When I was a kid, perhaps 18 or 19, I used to love Fireman Sam. I’m sure there’s quite a few of you out there who remember the song… He’s always on the scene, Fireman Sam And his engine’s bright and clean, Fireman Sam You can not

I get a lot of requests to post stuff. This one is for free.

People often ask me to post stuff here. I get a lot of very random emails from companies from Shenzhen in China especially. Usually they start with “Hello friend, battery supply we can. You buy we price good. You review?” However, my mate wanted me to mention
