After quite some time of waiting, the Facebook iPad Application is available at the AppStore. From what I’ve heard, Facebook was to announce it at the Apple Keynote speech, but recent events didn’t let Apple make it happen. The update was pushed yesterday and it is now a universal application for all the devices.
To tell you the truth, I didn’t think that Facebook could create a good experience for the iPad but
My Little Pomodoro is a cute productivity app by Voltage Software for MacOS. Being a freelancer (mostly specializing in procrastination!), I decided to try out its effectiveness and use, and see if it can help us out with our daily activities.
The tiny application is based on The Pomodoro Technique by Francesco Cirillo. The Pomodoro Technique is based on the idea that short bursts of productivity, or “pomodoros“, without any distractions, (which are a procrastinator’s nightmare!) can be the key to a freelancer’s productive work day.
We won’t say anything else than that since we won’t want to be one of all the other blogs that will analyze what will happen to Apple now that Steve Jobs is not with us. We won’t promote this post and we’d suggest you do the same. All we know is that one part has ended and a new era for Apple is starting, hoping for the better. Steve Jobs was an amazing person and we’ll miss him a lot.
I stumbled upon Elemites from an Adsense ad. And I’m really glad I did
It’s one of those games that you don’t have to spend 1million hours playing just to get the hang of it. You just start playing.
To begin with, it’s a realtime strategy game where you are a wizard and summon Elemites (golems) to fight with you. The best part is that the application is free: you can download it, play the first few stages and then decide if you want to upgrade to the full version for only a buck!
Glitch is a web-based massively-multiplayer game and, as they perfectly describe it: There are quests to go on, skills to learn, races to run, puzzles to solve and piggies to nibble. You can specialize as a chef, build your own multinational construction company, or just hang out with your friends. The world is your big, colorful, non-smelly oyster.
If you seek the new and improved every day [in any niche], you realize that nothing is set in stone.
I recently reviewed Quicksilver, an application I absolutely adore because it makes my everyday life so much easier. Not because it has a stylish user interface, or because it has flashy features that I can’t live without, but because it does one thing right. I’m not much of a mouse clicker, and getting from point A to point B as fast as possible is what I’m looking for, so when it comes to opening applications and managing tasks that once seemed long and distracting, Quicksilver did it great for me.
And then came Alfred…
If you are into Search Engine Optimization and Internet Marketing in general, it’s all about the stats game. Trying to stay updated all the time on how many visitors came to your site yesterday, bounce rates, click-through rates, etc., is a time-demanding task. Can’t say it’s pointless; I’m the number one person admitting to be a stats junkie, but at least I am trying to stay sober as long as I can! One thing though that is really crucial is the Search Engine Results Pages (SERP), and the history of your main keyword’s rank though time can be a invaluable resource for your promotional efforts. Knowing what changed made your keywords jump some positions up is an amazing thing to know, giving you a competitive advantage against the competition.
The tool is called TotalFinder. It is a band-aid fix on the native Finder that embeds some features that Mac user have always been requesting.
There’s quite a need for a fast free and easy way for image compression. And if you’re a webmaster you can feel my need!
You might say, why go into all that trouble just to compress an image from 200 Kb to 100? Is it really worth it? The simple answer is totally, but let me explain my self.
I own a popular website that uses images extensively. At the beginning I had no problems hosting the images on the same server, but when the traffic started to kick in, we had serious issues. First it was the bandwidth that the images were consuming but the most important issue we had was that when our posts became viral on social networks, our 100 Mbit line wasn’t enough to serve 1600 concurrent users.
Catchy title but it’s the absolute truth! If you’re like me, you’re reading whatever you can find about the upcoming Diablo 3 Release and start of its beta. After a while it gets to a point that every new search is almost futile…
Since I thought that when any news are released I’ll hear them from friends, I decided to stop worrying and try to find a simple (and not time consuming) game to help with breaks from work. Fortunately, Pocket RPG got my attention and I’m glad I bought it! It was created from the guys at Crescent Moon Games. It’s a simple dungeon – hack n’ slash – dual-stick game for the iPhone and iPad and it’s a no-brainer dungeon crawler. What more could a person ask from his iPhone?
