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!


Kik Messenger Review – Chat like its 1999…

Very cool! A friend of mine introduced me to a great program called Kik. It allows you to chat across all smartphone platforms, quickly and easily, without having to jump through any hoops. It totally reminds me of the glory days of chat, where Msn or Yahoo or AOL were our social networks… I have never installed a chat program on my phone, read my full review to see why I changed my mind!


Minecraft, I see the light

A few weeks ago, I read a blog post about a game called minecraft. It didnt really have a point, you just walk around a randomly generated world, and are able to lay down blocks, of different types. (more…)

Zip Realty App

Software Review: Ziprealty Android App

Zip Realty AppMe and my lovely wife are looking for a home! We currently live in a nice manufactured home, but with home prices being so low, we want to take advantage of the market and prepare for our future (with hopefully a few little ones running around). Because of this, I started looking for a good realtor. In my search I found a few websites that offered realtor services, but out of all of these, I was most impressed with Ziprealty, for a few reasons. (more…)

Livezilla, the godzilla of chat!

Wow, can you say awesomesauce? Every time I find a free product that does a good job I’m always blown away. But every time I find a free product that goes above and beyond, I am almost moved to tears. That is how I feel about Live!Zilla. I almost felt silly for not looking for something like this in the past. So your asking, what does Live!Zilla do for me? (more…)

osTicket :: Support Ticket System

I must say, I think I am in love! The other day, I was working like mad to finish a project at work, when I suddenly realized that I had a much more important project that needed to be done even sooner than the one I was working on. I wanted to rip my hair out! How could I have forgotten the other project?? I took a moment to write out what needed to be done, scouring my emails, and 3 todo lists, and found I actually had a ton of things that needed to be done! What was I to do??? I started thinking back to some of the conversations I’ve had with my dad, wondering how a large organization can handle so many requests and needs, and how to prioritize them so that you can get done quickly what needs to get done.
