Bet you haven’t seen a camera app like this one before. It turns your whole family Japanese. Or in our case, my Japanese family into Anime. The most fun was watching hubby translate the captions into pseudo Batman english. Manga Camera, at the app store.     What’s your favorite camera app?  Check out a […]

One of my favorite pastimes when I have a moment to indulge is to connect with my Twitter friends from all over the world.  On Thursdays, starting at 10pm EST, you’ll find me under the hashtag #mediachat where journalists converse in 140 characters to learn the latest in traditional and modern media. @newsle I get […]

It’s official. Summer is half over. So before it slips completely away, put down your glass of iced cold lemonade, place your right hand over your heart and repeat after me, “I pledge to make this one of the best, most memorable summers ever.” Well done. Now let’s get started. So you’ve done the picnic […]

While my body may not be bikini-clad and poolside-ready, or sporting the great tan I’d envisioned having by this Memorial Day Weekend, at least my iPhone apps are in great shape and ready to hit the road, thanks to much well thought-out preparation. The big weekend starts tomorrow and if you haven’t booked a place […]

My first reaction was, and I’m a tough critic, “Oh sure, you can make a slideshow on any Apple computer just as easily using iMovie” Then I tried it. With one click, I was logged in through facebook and able to […]

My good friend and fellow mom Camelia sent me an instant message the other day saying, “I think they have to make an iPhone for the ladies with a mirror.” It’s a brilliant idea. And I couldn’t help but wonder if it wasn’t  spawned after I’d secretly trained her SIRI to call her “Beautiful.” Camelia […]

My family is on vacation and I simply feel guilty if I don’t  share one of my all-time favorite mobile apps for travel—and for loads of other things too—called shoot it. Not to be confused with similarly named gaming apps, shoot it let’s you take a photo from your phone, or pull one in from […]

It’s probably a good thing we only have one child. Because I just can’t imagine packing for anymore than him and myself— and I undoubtedly always forget something. Like his underwear in Hawaii. Or enough long-sleeved shirts in Canada. My husband insists on packing for himself, always has what he needs, and it all shockingly […]

No doubt, I go through an extraordinary number of mobile apps, testing them out, keeping  a handful, then falling in and out of love. One app that’s withstood the test of time and handsdown keeps my attention monthly is a fairly simple application called BillMinder.  For $1.99 in the iTunes app store, it lets you […]
