I must warn you. Those of you that really need their cup of joe before even attempting to do anything else in the morning, you won’t get a kick out of this next app. If you’re constantly getting up from bed, putting one your slippers sideways, and saying good morning to the cat on your way to the bathroom, then solving Math problems bright and early might not be up your alley.

If on the other hand you’re looking for a way too boost your morning routing and jump start your day, then Smart Alarm from Vapssky is your ideal morning coach. The app works just like a regular alarm, just that in order to shut it off in the morning, you need to solve the Math problem or the Dots puzzle game that it throws at you.

Don’t worry! You’re not up against irregular expressions and Pythagorean problems. The Math problems themselves are just simple equations you wouldn’t think [...]

If you’re running Windows and would like total control over your PC via your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, JumiOne is a good choice to look at. It’s an all in one desktop, remote, keyboard, mouse, webcam and media controller for your PC.

To get it working you need two things. An iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad with JumiOne installed and a PC running Windows with the JumiController (available free of charge from JumiTech.com) installed and running. Minor configurations are required in the Jumi Controller (like a password and/or enabling guest access), and JumiOne will autodetect the PCs in range running the controller and will prompt you for the password in order to connect.

While the app itself is free to download, there’s not much you can do without those in-app purchases. JumiOne is merely the app that brings together another set of apps that [...]

I can’t even begin to tell you how useful this next app might have been a few months ago. I was doing a little remodeling to my apartment and needless to say I took the project upon myself. Measuring each wall, the furniture, the carpet, my desk, everything but the kitchen sink, well, that took a lot of my energy and I couldn’t get really organized with all the notes on paper.

This is where My Measures & Dimensions would have been a life-saver. If you need to keep track of dimensions, this is for you. You can pretty much use this app for everything from home decorating projects to fun things like keeping track of your little one’s height over time.

First off, you need something to measure. You can either take a picture of what’s in front of you, or choose one from your Camera roll. The photo can be of any object or [...]

With the Holidays around the corner, shopping is the activity on everyone’s mind. What do we need to for the Christmas dinner? What presents should we buy for mom and dad? Do we have all the Christmas tree decorations we need? It’s a busy time for everyone and technology should be here to help us keep track of these things. In come shopping lists right on your iPhone. There’s a big variety of such productivity apps in the AppStore. Today, we’re going to stop for a second and review ShoppingList – an iPhone app with great potential but, in my humble opinion, one that missed the mark.

The screens for the app are fairly easy. Tap the “Add New” button at the corner of your screen and enter the item you want to add to the list. You can either select the item from a list that the app provides or write it yourself. You can add a picture for [...]

CuteTag – As Useful As It Is Cute

By AppBite Team   November - 8 - 2010    See more Apps inApp Reviews, Productivity & Utilities   Comments

Productivity apps are in no way in short supply in the iTunes AppStore. ToDos, organization apps, note-taking, all you need is at the touch of your finger tips. A lot of them however offer perhaps too a complex solution for what is too simple a problem. If all you need is a way to write your ideas down and have an easy way to categorize each, then CuteTag might prove to be your answer.

CuteTag is a note-taking app at heart, but instead of relying on complex systems of categorization, it only does it one way: tagging. The developers’ idea seemed to be that it “allows you to explore your personal information in a way your natural brain does, by logical links.” (read full press release here). These logical links they assumed to be tags.

Other apps out there offer tagging as a way to keep track of your thoughts [...]

The Genius App That Lets You Multitask On The iPhone

By AppBite Team   January - 19 - 2010    See more Apps inApp Reviews, Productivity & Utilities   Comments

If the iPhone can’t multitask, that doesn’t mean you can’t either. Back in the older days, I was always in the habit of texting while walking on the street. My Nokia 6300 was pretty reliable and one hand was enough to be able to type out correctly what I wanted. Upgrading to the iPhone meant getting rid of this habit of walking and typing on my phone. For once, you can’t do it with one hand. And then, you need to pay 100% attention to the screen and the virtual keys. For me, it was simply impossible.

Perhaps two years too late, but with great pleasure I can say that typing and walking is back in the books for me, thanks to Easy Walk & Type. This little gimmick for the iPhone will keep you and your iPhone out of harms way while allowing you to see where you’re going and type your SMS at the same time.[...]
