How to hire mobile app developer

Despite all the popularity of mobile applications, it’s not very clear how much it costs to build one. Yes, there’s app creation tools out there that’ll make a free app, but if you want something a bit less generic, you need to go and find yourself a developer. …

An iPhone 11 for £25.99 a month? It is possible

Black Friday. Save even more with some excellent refurbished phones.

I don’t like spending too much money. That’s why you’ll find me applauding well-priced or sensible-priced phones here because, if you look into it deeply enough, phones really shouldn’t cost over £700. So, even if you want to have a phone that’s normally expensive, you can find ways …

Remember when we used to locally installed Office on a PC?

I didn’t used to rate Microsoft products, but on mobile phones their cloud offerings are rather spectacular. Office 365, and the ability to work anywhere, is refreshing and simple. Today I’ve been using Excel, and it’s got me thinking about how useful and how integrated with the office …

Unlocking your iPhone and removing the iCloud lock too

A few months ago I told you my story about buying a reconditioned phone and generally saving a bit of cash in the process. It pinged back in my head following our earlier eBay sales story because there’s a number of places selling really cheap iPhones which are …

The uncontainable expansion of mobile apps

Virtually every segment of our lives is monitored by an app. We use them to track our diet and exercise routines, meditate and unwind, run our business or just have fun. Since their conception, these apps have come a long way. From a so-called hand extension, they have …

iOS 12: Full preview and insight into key features

My son now has an iPhone and just recently I noticed that it hadn’t been fully updated. Usually I’m the one in the family who has a weird need to ensure that all the apps are updated on my phone and that the OS is the very latest …

Got yourself a PS4 or an Xbox? Why?

We’ve spoken lots here about mobile gaming, but there’s a battle that many smartphone manufacturers have fought for many years now. Running a graphic-heavy, high frame-rate game on your phone needs grunt. Lots of grunt. It sucks your battery, it makes your CPU work hard, you need more …

Buying a reconditioned iPhone and saving money. My story..

Yes, an iPhone. Wait though, let me explain. :) I’ve always pushed back on giving my son a phone, but this year he’s heading to high school and will be travelling further, plus all his mates now communicate via Facetime, WhatsApp or text. He’s used an Android tablet …
