Rest Thy Fingers! Talk Instead Of Typing!

By Bogdan Lazar   January - 27 - 2012    See more Apps inApp Reviews, Productivity & Utilities   No Comments

When Siri came out with the iPhone4S we were all ecstatic. Imagine the possibilities of your own personal assistant to whom you can issue plain, common commands and she does them, performing admirably. Of course, this meant that you had to get the latest iDevice from Apple, so you’d shell out 500 bucks to be able to use Siri. But if all you wanted was to give your thumbs a rest from all that typing, then there are other options and they won’t force you to buy a new phone.

VoiceToApps is an iPhone & iPad app that will let you talk to apps instead of typing. Whether you want to send an iMessage, a SMS, write an email or post to Facebook and Twitter, VoiceToApps lets you use your voice instead of your typing fingers.

Simply open up the app, select the language (only on first run) and tap record. The app will tell you when it’s ready to start [...]

Thoughts On Creating And Storing Strong Passwords

Is your email password the same with your Facebook login password and perhaps even your Twitter account? If you use the same password for your dozen or so accounts on the interweb, then you’re exposing yourself to a lot of security risks. Even more so if your password is something like “password” or “password1234” or any of the worst passwords that the year 2011 has seen. There are great ways to remember your passwords and a handful of guides to help you create a bullet-proof one for yourself without the risk of forgetting what it is (here’s one of them).

Still not satisfied with the level of “encryption” that you created for your passwords? Then you might want to try a commercial software that can take care of that for you. And Alphapass is one of them. It will run safely on iOS devices, and if you’re like me and you carry your iPhone with you [...]

Keep Your Personal Stuff Safe With MediaSafe

Our iPhones aren’t just devices that we use to call other people. They are sources that can sometimes reveal more personal information than we would like do disclose. But now, you can choose exactly what information on your iPhone you don’t mind sharing with other people, and what you want to keep to yourself. All you need is MediaSafe. And you can have it with a single download from the AppStore.

MediaSafe is the app that allows you to choose which photos, videos, contacts and notes you want to keep private. Once you start the app, just slide your finger on the screen, and create your own dot-lock code (very Android-like). It’s easier to remember than a four-digit code and it makes unlocking the app way more fun. Now, all that’s left for you to do is start adding the pictures, videos, contacts and notes that you want to keep to yourself.

And if [...]

On The Art Of Speed-Dialing With Your iPhone

TaggyDial lets you pair pictures of your friends and family with contact information already available on your iPhone by tagging faces in the pictures. Afterwards, you can just tap the face you previously tagged to call that person.

This iPhone app tries to make use of all the photos you already have on your device and lets you magically call a person by tapping on its face in a photo. Well, it’s not really magic, because you have to manually add photos to the app, tag each person in the photo and pair it with one of your contacts or create a new one.

Then, when you want to call your friend Bob, launch TaggyDial instead of the Phone or Contacts app and tap a picture and then tap your Bob’s face to bring up his contact card. Tap the number you want to call and you’re done.

You can also have more than one contact in a photo. This works [...]

We’ve reviewed remote access apps before and although they all ultimately do the same thing, it all comes down to ease of use, reliability and security. And UniQXcess passes the tests with flying colors, save for a few exceptions.

UniQXcess lets you set up any PC running the UniQXcess server to be accessible from your iPad, provided that you download UniQXcess from the AppStore. The setup process is painless and very intuitive on both the iPad and the PC.

On the iPad, you need to download the app and create your free account by providing your email and choosing a password. You can then start using the app, even without installing the server. The iPad app can connect to your Dropbox account and you can view your files from right within the app.

But if you want to be able to connect to your PC, you also need to set up the UniQXcess [...]

Remember when you were little and your mom used to turn off the lights to force you go to bed? Well, I bet that you never listened and most of the time, you wound up falling asleep with your flashlight on, reading your favorite magazines. And although you’re all grown up now, there are still some situations when you can’t control the lights from being turned off, whether it’s a blackout or your roommate decides to leave you in the dark, because he wants to sleep. And now, the closest store where you can find a Tiny Flashlight is the AppStore.

Tiny Flashlight can light your way anytime, since it is always in your pocket. And the great thing is that it doesn’t need any special room to fit inside your pocket, because, now, it’s part of your iPhone. So, whenever you find yourself in the dark, there’s no need to feel [...]
