When it comes to Mobile applications , the sheer number of choices can prove a bit overwhelming. Depending on which mobile device you own, you may have access to tens of thousands of applications. While choice is ordinarily a good thing, deciding between thousands of different apps can eat up time that would have been otherwise better spent.
So, where do you start? As we mentioned, it really does depend upon the device you own. For instance, if you are an iPhone user, then you have access through their online App Store to nearly one hundred thousand applications. But rather than confounding yourself with thousands of choices, it is best to decide first what you really need.
Regardless of which device you own, mobile applications or apps can often be separated into a few distinct categories. There are mobile games, office apps, and general applications. (more...)
The way things are going, in the next few years, people will have more computing power in their tiny little mobiles phones and PDAs than any hi-end computer available a few years ago. new communication trends are emerging, ones that were completely unforeseen in the past.
It is mindboggling how much technology has progressed in this field. It seems the smaller and sleeker the phone gets on the outside, companies manage to fit more brain power on the inside! What is now known to everybody as mobile apps, is basically advanced software, which makes these innocuous little devices perform tasks of enormous complexity.
Apps are being developed on the most eclectic subjects. They range from financial management software, to language learning software, to home decoration and design! Some applications are freely available. They are either pre-installed in the handset or can be downloaded from the internet. However, not all apps are free. There are some apps that need to be bought and installed on your phone. (more...)
After launching its App Store in 2008, the Apple app store recently hit the one billion download mark! Within first weekend of the launch there had been ten million app downloads by users. iPhone apps were the pioneers in the smart phone app revolution and today, there are thousands of iPhone apps for just about anything.
There are apps for entertainment, many apps for music, and of course there are gaming apps. Apart from this, there are several other functional apps as well. This ranges from weather and news, to travel, education etc.
Before downloading apps, one does need to know what exactly the app does, how it works, and how good it is. In such a situation, it can be greatly beneficial to have a video demo of the app in question. Reading a review is all very well but actually seeing the app at work can be exponentially more helpful! appvideos.com gives video demonstrations of various apps. (more...)
With thousands of new apps being released each and every month, it can be difficult for smartphone users to find the best ones. Of course, the word best itself is rather subjective when it comes to apps. After all, some people enjoy mobile game apps, while others like apps that can help them get things done.
For the purposes of this article, however, we are going to focus on apps that we deem helpful to iPhone users. So, even though mobile games are currently the most popular applications on the planet, they are obviously only used for entertainment purposes. Therefore, we will not be including them in our survey, since they do not actually help people accomplish anything.
But one group of increasingly popular apps that you can read more here is office or business apps. These apps are available on all smartphones and they give users the ability to accomplish standard office functions over the phone. They are particularly useful for people who spend a lot of time on the road away from their computers. (more...)
What does it take to be a citizen reporter? Much like citizen journalists, reporters often concentrate on local events and news stories that are not covered by the media. While they may not have any formal training, citizen reporters often add a fresh perspective and provide viewers with interesting stories they may have otherwise missed.
How do you become a citizen reporter? No classes or training is required. All you need is a curious mind, a mobile phone that can capture video, and access to the internet. You may also have to download a video posting application like motioncast video . This app will give you the ability to post your news stories with video on the internet.
Local or community news stories can include anything that you believe is news worthy. Since many sites like MotionCast do consider themselves news sites, it is important to post something that has merit. If you want to post something silly, it will likely be rejected. (more...)
There is a growing trend in our society that people do not like to be lost. This concern for disorientation has enabled the rise of handheld navigation devices that are both accurate and simple to use.
Navigation devices are no longer limited to GPS systems, they are now found on everyday mobile phones. Any phone that is able to run applications should be able to run a navigation application.
There are many websites that are devoted to navigation apps such as navigationapps.com that provide the user with detailed information on navigation app usage. (more...)
How does one find the apps that are best suited to their phone? With thousands of apps flooding the market, is it possible to find the top apps in any given field? The answer is, of course it is possible!
Instead of getting carried away with the most popular apps blindly, it is best to ask yourself what you use your phone for the most. If it is for business purposes, clearly you need apps that make work easier for you. if it is for entertainment and personal use, there is no dearth of gaming apps, entertainment apps, and social networking apps.
The best way to find apps that are worth your time and money is review sites. Obviously, not all review sites are equal. Some are clearly better than others, and these usually categorize apps according to their field, and then give ratings for individual categories. Apps dealing with all popular fields will have a list of the best ones. (more...)
Whether you are using Blackberry, iPhone or Android, chances are you will sooner or later want to download apps . Unless you are living the life of a hermit, and cut off from the marketing activities, reviews and articles relating to this multi million pound industry, at some stage you will succumb to the pressure.
And just as we now wonder how we used to live our lives without the latest mobile phone, soon our lives will be reliant on that strange little downloadable widget, the app. And what a difference they can make to our lives. Whilst there are many mindless apps out there which are downloaded and used purely to pass the time, there are also many apps out there which can genuinely make our lives easier.
The first thing is to weed out those apps which actually improve our effectiveness and productivity rather than hinder it. There is a whole raft of review sites springing up, some geared towards entertainment, and some towards the more serious and useful apps. Most of these contain unbiased reviews and ratings, and some even contain video reviews, so make the most of the advice on offer. (more...)
There are a variety of poker apps available for iPhone, Blackberry and Android, many of them specialising in Texas Hold’em. Each of the various apps has its strengths and weaknesses, so it is advisable to do some online research before downloading to make sure that is the best one for you.

With a catalogue of over one-hundred thousand apps, finding the best applications for iphone can be like finding that proverbial needle in the haystack. But even so, users download tens of millions of applications from the Apple site each day. How do they do it? We will explain.
But before we begin, we should explain exactly what an application is. An application or app is really nothing more than a simple computer program that can be downloaded and used on a Smartphone. These applications let users connect to the internet and perform almost any action they could complete on a personal computer.
And though the iPhone is not the most popular Smartphone, it does have the most popular applications, which obviously means that its users download more of them than other Smartphone owners. We also know that the iPhone has access to a much larger catalogue of apps than competing devices. (more...)
Facebook is the world's most popular social networking site. With over four-hundred million members in nearly every country on earth, its popularity and influence is impossible to deny. But some people are sick of the site they say likes to brag about each new member.
Is that fair? Well, Facebook does make a point of updating their membership statistics quite frequently. And yes, countless articles have been written about the site's amazing growth. And yes, their supercilious founder gives way too many interviews. And yes, yes, yes — Facebook likes to brag about itself!
But what are we supposed to do about it? Well, a number of fed up, tech-savvy souls have already taken the first shot across the Facebook formidable bow by establishing funny Facebook parody sites. (more...)
The iPhone is one of the most successful products in the history of Apple Inc. According to the company, they have sold fifty million units worldwide since the product was introduced less than three years ago. The incredible popularity of the iPhone has forced Apple to expand their already impressive apps catalogue.
At present, the company has more than one hundred thousand applications available for download at their Apps Store. And while most of these apps cost a pound or two to download, around five thousand of them can be downloaded for free.
How popular are free apps? You would expect them to be a fan favourite. But that is not the case. One of the reasons for this is that they are really quite useless. In fact, most of them are simple mobile games that few folks want to play. However, there are groups of useful free applications for iphone if you know where to look. (more...)
