April 14 – LogoQuiz

Now there are a lot of quiz apps out there but I love this one

LogoQuiz gives you a logo and you have to work out the company name, ie. Volkswagon

It currently has 12 levels and you open the next level by having so many right in the previous level.

This is a great one to play with or against friends and family.

Other apps that are like this one are Ultimate Quiz, QC movies, QC Character, Famous Faces, Logo Quiz, IconPopQuiz, Icomania, IconPopBrand, Pic Combo and 4 Pics 1 Word.

Good Luck

April 13 – Four Square

One of my most favourite apps

For those people that love to check in everywhere you go, well Four Square is for you.

Four Square not only lets you check in, but it will also send your check in on your Facebook and Twitter accounts as well, it also lets you add an image and add the people that you are with. You can also turn off Facebook &/or Twitter if you only want to put a certain post on FourSquare

So whats different?

Well here is the best part, Four square has an explore feature so if you are in a new town you can select what is the “Best Nearby” or you can select Nightlife, Coffee, Food, sights. Four Square will not only tell you what is nearby it will tell you how far away they are and you can select an item from the list and see the exact address, how many people have checked in and reviews people have left.

Four Square also offer deals at participating places, I went to a restaurant the other day that offered a free soft drink on my 4th check in, there are offers better than this one

I am in love with this one and use it almost every day.

Good Luck

April 12 – Vintage Cam

Another Photo app you say… No this one is different

This app allows you to take photos that you already have on your device and add effects to them similar to what you can do in Instagram, you can then post the images on your favourite social media.

Yes I agree it is very much like Instagram but it is always fun to try different effects for your images

Good Luck

April 11 – IncrediBooth

An app for those out there that love to take Selfies… you know who you are

This app is just like the old fashion photo booths, you set yourself up in the box where it asks you to set your eye level and then hit the button. The booth will now take 4 images of you so remember to change something after each photo. The images are then delivered to you outside the booth in Black and White.

An app that is loads of fun

Good Luck

April 10 – Secret Server

An app for your secrets

No not really but this is an app where you can record all your logon details for all the different websites, apps and programs that we use these days

When you first set up Secret Server you will enter a password and you will be given a Org code, you will need both of these to login. You can also set a passcode, this is a 4 digit code that you enter whenever you want to access the app.

Within the app you are free to set up everything from social media passwords to bank account details, it all comes down to your comfort level but I know with the amount of apps and passwords I have on the go at the moment this little app can be a lifesaver.

Good Luck

April 9 – Run Keeper

Do you like to run or walk? Well RunKeeper is for you

Gone are the days when you need to wear a pedometer to track the number of steps you take and they are so cumbersome and make your clothes look lumpy anyway.

RunKeeper is a fun way to track the distance you have walked or run. You can set goals for yourself like, how many kilometres you would like to walk in say a year, your goal weight or you might want to finish a race.

The app will keep track of how far you have walked this week, your average pace, how many times you have walked, calories burned, elevation and time spent walking.

When you start and activity you set the type (walk or run), you can select a route and a playlist, runkeeper will then use GPS signals to track your route, pace, calories, time, steps and distance and all you have to do is walk.

RunKeeper also lets you connect your activity with social media like Facebook and Twitter and connect with friends.

Another app I just love

Good Luck

April 8 – Wikipanion

Another app for iPad

Wikipanion is your access to wikipedia without having to open a browser on your ipad.

Once you are in it is as simple to search as it is on the website. Side view allows you to see the contents, related topic and bookmarks regarding your search topic

The app also allows you to email a link or post it on social media like Facebook or Twitter

I love this app

Good Luck
