Jul-10-2011 By nitrousworx

My wife’s iPhone has Viber app and I didn’t believe how useful it was until I talked to my brother who is a hundred miles away from us and the call was free!

  • International free calls to other Viber users using 3G or Wi-Fi.
  • Check your contacts, you can see which of your iPhone contacts is already on Viber.
  • Go ahead and call or text. It’s free and it works great!

iCloud, What is it?

Jun-17-2011 By nitrousworx

Another new from Apple?


Coming this Fall!

Your content. On all your devices.

iCloud is so much more than a hard drive in the sky. It’s the effortless way to access just about everything on all your devices. iCloud stores your content so it’s always accessible from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac, or PC. It gives you instant access to your music, apps, latest photos, and more. And it keeps your email, contacts, and calendars up to date across all your devices. No syncing required. No management required. In fact, no anything required. iCloud does it all for you.

Free gets you a lot.

When you sign up for iCloud, you automatically get 5GB of free storage. And that’s plenty of room, because of the way iCloud stores your content. Your purchased music, apps, and books, as well as your Photo Stream, don’t count against your free storage. That leaves your mail, documents, Camera Roll, account information, settings, and other app data. And since those things don’t use as much space, you’ll find that 5GB goes a long way.

I still have so much to learn about iCloud, you too can learn more. Visit their site for further info.

My wife encouraged me to install Zinio in my netbook since I love reading magazines. She even told me that I can use her paypal to buy a couple of issues since they have categories like hobbies and technology.


So what is Zinio?

Zinio is a publishing technology and services company, which provides sales and distribution of printed material in digital format including magazines, books, catalogs, newsletters and research.

AroundMe Rocks

Jul-25-2010 By nitrousworx

I discovered AroundMe through my sister in law who lives in Canada and recently is in our country for a vacation. They used the app in Canada to locate different establishments from restaurants to cafe to stores. So me and my wife tried the app and first the app should locate you and then the app is now on it’s very useful mode.

Like the name applies, it lists all the critical services around you — banks, coffee shops, bars, gas stations, hospitals, movie theaters, restaurants and so on. Using geolocation, the app orders each service by its proximity to you — how many yards away — and, like other apps aimed at the traveler, maps out a route from here to there, if requested. It also creates a contact page for every entry, which you can save to your own contacts list.

Typed in National Bookstore and all the store branches to the nearest from my location popped. Really cool! I love this new app, definitely a must!
