iTask Brings Task Dependencies to To Do Lists

Even if you’re fed up with ToDo apps, even if iOS5 will have its own Reminder app, even if you still use pen and paper, iTask is definitely worth a look. The iPhone app from TopLineSoft Systems provides its users with a more complex look at your classic ToDo lists. Its most notable characteristic is the diagramming interface it uses to create tasks and link them together in complex (or simple) dependencies.

You use them all the time, but perhaps you don’t call them that. Every project you work on is comprised of a number of tasks that follow a certain flow, a certain sequence, if you will. When writing a review for an iPhone app, for example, I first need to download the app (Task A), then test it and play with it (Task B), then I can work on any of the following, in any order I want (cutting my screenshots, getting the icon for the app, writing the review) and [...]

An All-In-One Money Planner

Starting up the app leaves you amidst a multitude of buttons, options and numbers. It seems like there are some options to configure pretty much everywhere you look. I won’t deny it, much like HomeBudget, LohasMoney seems to accentuate the fact that finances are not for everyone.

However, both apps do a good job at making your life easier. Things must first become complicated in order to become simple. So to start with, go ahead and configure some of the options in the Settings menu (bottom-right corner). There are a handful of options available, but what’s most important is selecting the currency and setting up a password lock.

Be aware that every button tap in the app had an annoying sound associated with it. Thankfully, these can be turned off, and you can safely concentrate on your finances.

One other important aspect to [...]

Server failures happen frequently, and even though they go unnoticed most of the times, IT guys always want to know what and why it happened and managers want to know how much it cost the business. DT Calculator from Storagepipe attempts to deal with the second part of the inquiry. DT Calculator allows users to calculate the cost of server failure by correlating various constants that define their business, such as Yearly Revenue, Business Hours in a Year and employee data.

The iPhone app features just one screen where you need to focus your attention. Fill in as little as six fields and the app calculates loss for you. Fields include Yearly Revenue, Business Hours in a Year, Impact on Sales, Number of Employees Affected, Average Employee Cost per Hours and Average Percentage They Are Affected. [...]

Spread Betting, Risky Business and CMC Market’s New iPhone App

By Bogdan Lazar   October - 15 - 2010    See more Apps inApp Reviews, Business & Finance   1 Comment

If you’re like me (ie. a tech-savvy guy with no knowledge of the stock market), then you’d probably disregard CMC Market’s newly launched spread betting app (link) bearing the same name as the company itself. But that would be to your loss, because spread betting is not the same as stock exchange. Spread betting is a simple and cheap way to make tax-free profits quickly, but at a high risk.

Spread betting simply allows you to speculate on whether the price of something will rise or fall by the end of the day. It’s a risky gamble to bet on whether the euro will rise or if Google’s share prices will fall. Take the risk and you stand to make a profit. You don’t need to buy the actual asset you want to trade, but rather bet on the prices offered by the spread betting provider. CMC Markets is one such provider.
