I’m a big fan of new technology … but I think the rumors of the upcoming launch of the iPhone 5S having a biometric fingerprint reader are, well, false. But why do I think it won’t be there? The real question is why would it? Look at the last several iPhone iterations … see any major additional features beside case, processor and storage updates? Nope. See any sci-fi type security integrations besides pinlock? Nope.
It’s not that I don’t think Apple is capable of adding it in, it’s just that I don’t see the need for it. I wonder how many people actually use a pin to have to unlock their phone. Continue reading iPhone 5S Getting Biometric Fingerprint Reader Security? Who Cares?
Introducing the free Adoo to-do list and task manager, the simple mobile to-do app that gets things done with the swipe of your finger for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Ditch the checkmark and swipe your to-do’s to the left to complete or to the right to do later.
When I started out to make the new mobile to-do list app Adoo, I wanted something simple enough to use that I spent the least amount of time in the app and more time actually finishing my to-do’s.

Do you ever feel like you have the worst phone service ever? A new iPhone app called CarrierCompare will confirm or shed a little light on just how your carrier compares against the others.
For instance, I have AT&T and I’ve had it since time began (I was ported over via the Cingular buyout) and lately I’ve been feeling that my house was made of some sort of impenetrable super metal that I’ve never heard of before. One check of this app and I noticed that things could be worse.
AT&T actually scored higher than Verizon and Sprint. Continue reading CarrierCompare iPhone App Shows Best Service at Your Location
Education is probably one of the fastest growing categories on the App Store and rightly so as the iPad and iPhone are great learning tools for kids. Two kids apps we’re going to take a look at today are Sarah Little Fairy Grandma ($2.99 iPad only), which helps kids learn about Alzheimer’s disease and KarPooler (free), not an education app, but it does help coordinate carpools and that’s fine by me.
Developed by a real-life mom and dad, KarPooler is the fastest, quickest and most effective way to communicate with all the adults and children in your carpool(s), without wasting time searching or scrolling around your contact list.
