Quad is the first group chat app for college students that lets up to 500 people communicate, plan and get things done more efficiently than conventional email lists. To the quad! Aside from …

Stop Missing Life’s Most Important Photos

The best photos aren’t always the prettiest, but it’s the prettiest that get shared on Facebook and Instagram. There are many ways to share photos with friends and family but none stand out in my mind in terms of uniqueness and usefulness as Cluster. Cluster allows people to build private, collaborative photo albums with friends. Though originally built for events, …

Self-Storage Used to Suck

We all have junk memories that we’ve got to store somewhere. If you have run out of room in your basement, closets, garage and shed (assuming you have one) and you have already exhausted the storage areas of any friends and family willing to give your stuff asylum, you really only have one option left: put your stuff in storage. …

Sphero Review: This Is The Future of Fun

Ever since I first laid eyes on it, I wanted it. It goes by an interesting name: Sphero. It’s a toy, and like you might have derived from the name it’s a sphere. Not just any sphere. Nope—this is a sphere that you can control with your smartphone or tablet. It glows, it sounds like R2D2 and it comes with …

Locality makes every service at every local business searchable online by price, ratings, and availability. “Consumers thank us for helping them save money and time on the services and errands they run in real …

This Is The Coolest Pet Accessory Ever

A few years ago I adopted a dog who absolutely hates being home alone. Alex Neskin had a dog named Rocky who could relate. The technical term is separation anxiety. Alex invented an ingenious device called the Petcube that helps dogs de-stress when they are left at home. As the website says, “Petcube is a home gadget that lets you …

Appboy: Improving Apps for Everyone

When I use an app, I want the experience to be as close to perfect as possible. I can’t stand it when I download an app and must immediately give it the stanky boot. If an app doesn’t work as I think it should (or as advertised) it is a failure. Often times I want apps that fail to have …

Prompts vs iA Writer: A Dual iPad Writing App Review

I’ve been writing a lot lately and I’ve been doing most of it on my iPad. I love writing on the iPad. I’ve got an Origami case/stand with a full-sized Bluetooth Apple keyboard (of course I don’t write long-form content using the on-screen keyboard!). I’ve been testing out two writing apps recently: iA Writer and Prompts. Both offer distraction-reduced writing …

At The Pool: An Easy Way to Get Social Offline

When you hear social media, ironically, I bet you only think about online services like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. Many a person has complained that “social media” has actually disconnected the world, more than connected it. Sure, you can “hangout” with someone on Google+, but that’s not the same as seeing someone live and in person right in front of you. …

Inside Flipboard

Flipboard is, and always has been, one of my favorite iPad (and now iPhone) apps. It’s often imitated but never, ever duplicated. It’s not just a news reader, it’s an experience. Part of what I love is discovering new sites dug up by Flipboard’s curation team. The user experience and interface were game-changers and continue to be considered among the …

Undrip

Great social media content is constantly slipping through your fingers, leaking through the faulty pipes and infrastructure available to you to soak it all up.

Review: Day One Journal App Is Worth Downloading and Using

What do Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin all have in common? They all kept journals. Somehow journaling became a “girly” thing to do in recent years, but in reality it’s perfectly manly. While sites like Facebook will chronicle things in your life automatically for you, there is no replacement for a private repository of your thoughts. I realized …
