Reviews – Get Notified of Reviews of your favourite apps

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

HTC Zoe Now available for all Android Devices

One of the most innovative inclusions on recent HTC smartphones has been HTC Zoe, a clever simple to use app for sharing high quality and stylish highlight videos produced from your media gallery. It’s fair to say that sometimes the output is very impressive and the app

The long awaited spiritual successor to Peter Molyneux’s classic Populous, Godus has been launched today on iOS platforms and is free to download.

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

Can a smartphone really make you fitter? A look at My Fitness Pal

Smartphones are becoming an integral part of our life, and the phrase companion is frequently used to to describe how we interact with them. The barrier between what a phone can and can’t do is reducing all the time as apps and technology becomes more sophisticated, and

Free Windows Phone satnav to get you home

We all know about the ongoing issues with getting Google services on your Windows mobile, and that includes Google Maps for your satnav needs. Luckily Nokia Drive/Here Maps is available now, but there’s another entrant in the ring. Copilot was one of the original people who developed

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

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

Lloyds Bank mobile app switched off for root users

Got yourself a bank account with Lloyds? Keep getting sold stuff in their “account reviews” that you don’t need or want? Paying a monthly fee for some additional extras and a breakdown service that’d probably cost you less if you went direct? Welcome my friends. If you’ve

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

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

Dubstep Hero Review

I’m sure we’ve all had those visits to the services on the motorway. Usually, in between a coffee and a quick “comfort break” you’ll see one of those “Dancing Stage” machines. Perhaps, if you’re on a night out and had a few “shandies”, you’ll probably try and

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

Recovering lost data with MobiSaver.

Everyone must know that horrible sinking feeling when you’ve accidentally deleted something. It’s worse on phones, as there’s usually some pretty personal information on there such as photos, text messages and music. Imagine you’ve just lost some data. Whether it be an accidental deletion or someone resetting
