Android + iOS App Review – FlightTrack 5

As a flight attendant, flight monitoring is my life. Gate changes? Delays? Weather? All of this is pretty important to our lives and livelihood. Our company is kind enough to issue us apps and programs to monitor this, but none of them give you notifications. If you are curious about any of that information, you need to go back into the app and double check it. That is where FlightTrack shines! Once you enter in your flights, you are set! It calculates your layovers, your gate changes, and delays and notifies you if any of these things change. It has made my job a lot easier and the notifications are practically in real time. I have even used the app to help my passengers figure out if there are gate changes or delays if they are connecting gates. So, do I like FlightTrack? Absolutely! Is it perfect? Nope! Read on for my full review. (more…)

Android App Review – Image Shrink Lite (Resizer)

Ever wanted to share photos with someone on your phone, but your phone network took forever to upload it? Well have no fear, Image Shrink Lite is here! I use Groupme a lot to communicate with my friends and family, and one of the great features is that it allows you to share full resolution photos! This is great but sometimes when you are out and about it, without wifi, it can take forever to send a photo. What I do instead, is run the photo through Image Shrink Lite and it makes the file much smaller, without losing much quality. It’s a great little tool, and the Lite version is free. It supports a ton of image resolutions and if you buy the pro version, you can even batch shrink photos, so you can share them that much easier! (more…)

Mobile App Review – Cluster – Photo Sharing Done Right

When it comes to photo sharing, Facebook is usually the way to go. Unfortunately, not everyone is on Facebook (yeah, crazy right?). Well I have found a great app that is on both Android and iOS that helps bridge that gap. It’s called cluster, and in a nutshell, it allows people to create a space to share photos for different events. A great example is going to be coming up in February, I have a skiing trip planned with a group of my close friends. Usually we would have to create a dropbox folder, and if any of my friends don’t have a dropbox account they would then need to create one. Normally this isn’t bad, but it is complicated, and a bit much for what we need. We just need a place to share photos as a group, and download them all in one go. This is great if you are normally the designated photographer of a group, and are never in photos because you are the one taking them! This way everyone can take photos of everyone and have them in one place! Cluster makes this quick and efficient. Read on for more!

Android App Review – Grumpy Bears

So today my buddy sent me a link to a new game that he is playing and it cracked me up! If you haven’t played Grumpy Bears yet, click on the image below and download it (Android version, iOS version coming soon according to the developer)! Think of the game as a cross between whack a mole, and angry birds, requiring precision and quick reflexes to master.  On top of the fast paced action, there is also the ability to buy weapons upgrades and level yourself up. The crazy bears will have you laughing and the nutty weapons will crack you up. My absolute favorite so far is Thor’s hammer, that zaps the stuffing out of any bear that gets to close to the vehicle.

The game is very polished and looks like a lot of work went into making it. It runs a little slow on my Galaxy S3 sometimes but that might have more to do with my background apps that I have rather than the game. Otherwise, 98% of the time it runs smooth as silk. If you are bored and want to have a bit of fun, do yourself a favor and check out the game! Screenshots after the break!

Why Picasa is the Non-Professional photographers best friend

Many of my friends like to take pictures and video, but more and more of my friends, dont use any kind of photo or video management system for their photos, instead opting for using windows to manage their files. This is well and dandy, but it can lead to confusion, and its easy to lose track of your photos if your collection is large enough. When importing photos or videos from the camera, where are your photos placed? How can you access them later? And how can you easily edit them? (more…)
