Today I’m over at Dmacrye Tech discussing the JuiceDefender App for Android:
If you ask most Android phone users what their biggest complaint is, more than likely the answer is battery life. We love our phones and we use them for…well, for everything. And then we wonder why the battery rarely lasts a day.
JuiceDefender is a free power manager app for your Android phone that will save your battery’s power and extend its life. It has been said that it can increase battery life by 1.78 times more in 48 hours of usage (mine was 1.63). What JuiceDefender does is tackle the phone properties that kill your battery – WiFi, Bluetooth, the display and when accounts sync. Read more
By now I am sure you’ve heard that Verizon has followed in AT&T’s footsteps and will no longer be offering unlimited data plans. I know, it sucks.
But if you happen to own an iPhone, there’s an app that can help monitor your data usage so you don’t go over your plan. Read more
When I’m in my car, my phone automatically goes into a cup holder. When does this become a problem? When I have a cup. Well yes, Toyota did put four cup holders up front for the driver and passenger, but they fill up rather quickly.
When it comes to being organized, you’re either a tech person or a pen and paper person. Oddly enough, I happen to be both. I keep a running task list on my phone with Astrid Tasks (LOVE their new update, btw). But I also write down the next few days of tasks on a post-it so I can visually see what needs to be done.
If you’re a paper person, this notebook has a big advantage over any smart phone or app. It’s waterproof. Read more
Even for someone as organized as myself, medical records are difficult to keep updated and in order. The latest idea of keeping your medical records and emergency information in your wallet is just so smart.
And for anyone who has health issues, this product is great for them to carry around in case something happens to them while they’re out and alone. There are two options out there - The Medical USB Data Card and the 911 Medical ID Card. Read more
Many of us use our smart phone as our primary camera to take pictures. And let me just say that one should only do this if they have a quality camera on their phone. If I see one more blurry photo taken by a BlackBerry on Facebook, I am going to scream.
The question is, what do you do with those phone pics? So many of us just leave them on there, never to see the light of day. But the iPhone Photo Cube Printer makes it easy to print your photos. Only the good, non-blurry ones! Read more
The Neat Geek is once again guest posting over at Tech Ature, which is a great site for tech reviews and news.
Sure there are thousands of apps you download for fun. But there are some apps that are serious and can help you stay healthy. And after you use them, you can go back to making fart noises with iFart Mobile.
No matter what we have going on in our lives, the one thing we have in common is that we all have to eat. And for some of us, we also have to feed other people. I’ve tried to get my five-year old to cook her own dinner, but that hasn’t worked out yet.
I’m big on meal planning. Every Sunday I go through my recipe book, pull out meals for the week and then I add the needed items to my grocery list (right now I’m using Grocery King for Android). But I would love to try MealBoard – Meal and Grocery Planner for iPhone.
Girls love adorable little accessories to dress us their phones. Guys love a cell phone case to protect their phone from…well from themselves.
Below are two cases for your iPhone that offer the cuteness for the ladies and the protection for the men. Read more
You know that there are times when you’re on your iPhone and you think, wow it would be nice to type on a full size keyboard right now. And then there may be times when you’re on your desktop and think, I would love a touchscreen to control my computer.
There are items that belong on your to-do list – renew car insurance policy, book a rental car for your next trip, get estimates for new pool. And yes, those are all items on my task list.
But then there are small things like water the plants and defrost chicken for dinner – also on my list. Do they belong on your almighty to-do list or someplace else? How about Daily Deeds.
For parents of school children, organizing all school documents, photos and report cards can be overwhelming. Do you keep it, do you throw it out, do you scan it?
And for these types of memories, there is only so much technology can do. Parents sometimes just need a place to store those precious Thanksgiving hand turkeys. And momAgenda knows this.
You’re busy. You have places to go and people to see. You don’t have time to bring your car to the mechanic every time a light comes on.
So the next time your dashboard starts flashing lights at you, simply connect the goPoint Technology GL1 OBD Car Diagnostic Gadget to your engine and download the goLINK free app to your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
We all know we’re supposed to drink eight glasses of water per day. Some of us do, some forget and some say Are you crazy, I can’t drink that much water.
For those of us who often forget, like yours truly, your iPhone can now nag – er, remind – you. Read more
