Instagram Video: Vine's Newest Rival

July 03, 2013 | by Jacqueline Bailey

Just when I thought the next big thing for smartphones was a video app created by Twitter called Vine, Facebook changes the game. Instagram, a smartphone app downloadable in the Google Play store and the iTunes app store, has been around since 2010, and has gained popularity with more than 130 million users. Instagram began as a simple smartphone app made to enhance your photos and share them with your... read more

Vine: “Share life in motion”

June 19, 2013 | by Jacqueline Bailey

Vine is quickly becoming a favorite among social networking apps for smartphones. It is a six-second looping video with the ability to record continuously or stop-and-go for unlimited periods of time, which is especially easy to use on the DROID RAZR MAXX HD by Motorola because it has 32 hours of battery life! This will allow you to record and watch posts on Vine for hours without draining the battery.

Vine started off solely on iOS smartphones but was recently made available to Andriod smartphones in the ... read more

Google Now Helps Keep You Connected

Google Now: Sharing Events & Staying Connected Has Never Been More Fun!

June 07, 2013 | by Megan Murray

My Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone is running on the latest technology and has amazing features. My favorite part about the Android 4.2.1 operating system is the pre-installed Google Now app. 

My absolute favorite function of this app is the one that keeps me on schedule. When you have an upcoming calendar event that includes an address, a warning (called a 'card') will pop-up on your phone's display telling you what time you need to leave by to arrive on time for the event. Brilliant!

Even more amazing, Google Now seems to learn your habits and display cards as you need them, even without requesting the information. For example,... read more

EAT24 Food Delivery App Homescreen

EAT24: A food delivery app so good, you'll want seconds

May 16, 2013 | by Rachel Leake

EAT24 is an awesome food delivery service that works with local restaurants, providing a seamless mobile and web delivery takeout platform. With a sleek user interface and 24 hour live customer support, having food delivered is a breeze.

They partner with local restaurants, most who don't offer delivery on their own, so you have a wide variety of restaurants to choose from. You can filter results based on proximity, cuisine, delivery fee (if applicable), etc. You can store your favorite menu items and restaurants in your favorites to make re-ordering next week even quicker.

My favorite part of this app is that you can split a check by adding other credit card's information to the bill- taking all the hassle and I-owe-you's out of ordering the office lunch! You can also... read more

Baby Connect: A dream app for new moms

May 10, 2013 | by Casey Fox

I'd heard the stories from of sleep deprived mothers. When was the baby fed last? Changed? What shots did they get at 3 months? Since carrying around a large binder in addition to all the other baby gear was just not practical, I went in search for an app to do the job. When I found the Baby Connect app, I was probably far too excited, but it was exactly what I needed!

Here's a few things you can track with this app: Feedings (nursing, bottles, solids, cups), Sleeping (where, when, duration, pacifier, etc), Diapers (type, quantity, etc), Mood, Medical (vaccinations, measurements, medicines, doctor visits, etc), Milestones, Diary, Messages, Photos, Potty, and more. It's incredibly handy to pull out at the first few doctor appointments to tell them exactly how she is eating,... read more

Parking meters still exist...but pocket change doesn't

May 09, 2013 | by Candace Owens

Saturday 1pm, and you've just picked up your mother and little bratty sister from the airport. In between happy hugs from your mom and major attitude from your little sister, the only thing that is constant is their want to go to lunch in the middle of downtown. After you roll your eyes and ask yourself why you invited them to visit, of course you turn the car onto the freeway and head into the city... THE CITY! Are they serious? The place that locals avoid on the weekends. The home of the millions of lost tourist. The place of no parking lots and high priced valets. The place that if not prepared, can eat you up and spit you out as opposed to you enjoying your nice afternoon lunch! 

Alas, you make it to the city in one piece and start the dreaded hunt for a parking space and... read more
