locket

A new app called Locket allows you to earn money by displaying ads on your smartphone’s lock screen.

Ads are annoying, but would you voluntarily look at them if someone paid you to do so? One app developer is asking that question. Earlier this month, Locket launched on Android, and this new app will pay you to look at ads on your phone’s lock screen.

swirl it wine app

I give a big thumbs up to any tool that makes it easier for me to find new wines to sip. If you’re an oenophile like me, check out Swirl It, a new iPhone app to help you pick out wines at your favorite restaurants and bars.

On the “Our Story” page on Swirl It’s website, its team is referred to as “a bunch of boozers on a mission.” Co-founders Brittany Hawkins and Nic Werner built Swirl It to combat a common problem in the wine world: in order to discover new wines, you typically have to drink a lot of bad bottles. Instead of purchasing a bottle or paying a premium for wine by the glass, the next time you’re out to eat, you can use Swirl It for personal wine recommendations based on availability and your personal tastes.

Fashion makers have long been on the forefront of new technologies as the early adapters and often trendsetters for popular apps and social media. Brands like Target and H&M were among the first companies in 2007 to use Facebook groups and later pages to reach out to their loyal fashion followings, and Twitter and Tumblr have become a mainstay for the fashion elite to blog, post, tweet, what have you, a throng of mid-America style addicts.

Released in July, the Snapchat App now places in the top ten most popular free apps for the Apple iOS market and the newly released Android version places 33 on the list of top 100 free apps in the Google Play market.

Unless you’re 20-something or the parent of teenager chances are you haven’t heard of this popular picture chatting app. The concept is simple the user can snap a picture, add text to it or draw on the image, and then set a time limit (three to ten seconds) for the viewer to see the image. The concept is that the image self destructs at the end of the viewing time leaving no trace of the picture or video behind on the viewers phone.

With the release of the iPhone 5, the debate of which phone to choose, the Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone, is hotter than ever. I weigh in on the pros and cons with my feedback on the Samsung Galaxy S3.

To be quite honest, I generally use my phone for email, voice calls, texting, calendar and not much else. So bear with me, because this review will only focus around the usability of these items.

The iPhone 5 was just released this past Friday; I’ve been pleased with my iPhone 4 for just over 2 years now so I was sure I would love the iPhone 5, but I couldn’t help but wonder if there was something better out there. I was super excited when Samsung sent me the Galaxy S3 to review; the timing couldn’t be better!
