Sassy pants!

  • App review for iris.

Iris seemed like the coolest looking app from all the ones I downloaded on my search for the best Siri-like application for the Android OS.

Looks can be deceiving however and this app is really only worth a good laugh.

When I asked Iris to "send a text message to FirstName, good morning!" it went through the motions correctly and got the whom and what I was trying to send correctly but no matter who I sent a text to I got an error "Error 0: Bad number" even thought the number was correct for the contact. While the text showed up in my sent messages correctly it never did reach it's intended audience. I tried this with multiple contacts with no success.

The second test I did was to ask Iris for "Directions to the nearest Starbuck" and this is where it got interesting. Now you'd expect that it would open maps and try to send me some place poorly phrased or maybe even to the nearest Starbucks as intended. Nope, it flat out asked me "Why do you want it?" Uhm.... excuse me? So I replied "because I want coffee" and it replied "no."

So I guess I don't get coffee today because my AI Personal Assistant wants me to suffer..

Needless to say, this application has some flaws and unless you're into being told what to do, you should maybe try out on of the other apps on the market until this one has a conversation with an exorcist.

Best shopping app!

Love browsing all the catalogs from my tablet. This is a great way to be green - and to go shopping on the go!

iris was unhelpful

Iris was unable to answer a single question. Even when it asks you a question back there's no way to answer. At least not that I could discover. It might be neat someday but right now in 11/2011 it stinks.

Love to play it

It's very nice to play it, few games are very addictive and encourage you to play more and more and response frequently.

VisR is a really nice app that organizes photos based on the corresponding event. Super useful for people who take a lot of photos.

It works very well

I have extremely eclectic musical tastes. And have about 75 gigs of music stored on my PC, and even though I tried to stump this app with several obscure pieces of music, it recognized everything I threw at it. I highly recommend this app.

Kick booty music app!

  • App review for Spotify
  • Posted by AndroidSteph August 26, 2011
  • Recommended for Music Fans, Social Butterflies or Tech/Social Networking Junkies

Adore this app with a passion. It keeps all of my local music as well as adds additional music that I pick to my playlist. I've always been a big fan of cloud anything but cloud music is my favorite. I love the idea that I could just listen to music wirelessly without having to sync it up with my computer or even download it. I'm reserving a 5 bars rating for this app as some of the cooler features are locked unless you have a subscription. To me, if you use this app enough, the $3.99 min a month is totally worth it. Move over Pandora!

A simply laid out, yet useful reference for PC users

While the layout is fairly basic, the guide itself is very informative. The guide contains three major sections, which cover computer issues, installation guides, and reference guides. The app could use a better UI and a few more reference guides, but overall, its very well written and is a bargain at 0.99 cents. Some of the issues covered are Windows installation, virus removal, network issues, and even some hardware installation guides.

It's on the cards

Nice Klondike version with plenty of options and features, plus it's 100% free.

Three in one

Now there's no need to go to three separate sites (or three different apps) just to see what your friends have been up to.

Planner

Cool app for scheduling and calendar entries. The name may sound a little confusing, but it's a nice way to keep organized.

Remember to drink water!

If you forget to drink enough water - this app is for you. You set the number of cups of water you want to drink per day, and the app will remind you during the day to drink the water! It also tracks how much water you drink and will show you a neat graph.

Must have widgets!

  • App review for Beautiful Widgets Pro
  • Posted by LadyX July 27, 2011
  • Recommended for Students, Career People or Tech/Social Networking Junkies

Beautiful Widgets is an amazing widgets app that will give you many different useful widgets for your Android phone or tablet. It even has Honeycomb support so it will work flawlessly on your Galaxy Tab 10.1 of Xoom!
I personally use the Smaller Home Widget because I don’t like a lot of clutter, it has everything I need (clock, weather, and date / time info). The weather piece of the app can be used with either Google Weather or Accuweather. There are neat weather animations when you tap on the weather icon (actual rain when it’s raining, etc) and weather alerts as well.

This widget pack also comes with toggles which I haven’t used because I used CyanogenMod which has toggles built in but they are super handy if you don’t have another mod that will turn on / off your services (wifi, Bluetooth, airplane mode, etc).

This app is full of customization options so if you’re looking for an amazing widget set or something to help modify your phone - check out this app!

Fun, educational and entertaining!

  • App review for Sky Map
  • Posted by LadyX July 26, 2011
  • Recommended for Road Warriors, Parents, Students, Outdoors Enthusiasts, Career People or Tech/Social Networking Junkies

If you’ve ever wondered where a certain constellation was or what the one right up there is, this is the app for you. This app has a beautifully simple interface and works on all Android devices. I like using it on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 because you can see even more of the screen.

Basically this app uses it’s GPS and gyroscope to figure out where you’re pointing it (hold it like a driving wheel and move it around) and gives you a portal to the nights sky, even in the daylight!

I love showing this to people and pointing it at the ground and seeing which stars are below us. Great app for kids too!

Ready set swim

This app gives you access to a swim workout database that includes multiple distances and swimming levels from which to choose. It's like having your own private swim coach and I find it gives me greater incentive to do a stronger swim.

Name that position

This app is handy as a reference when you are viewing a ballet performance or need to brush up on terms as a beginning ballerina. I adore both doing and watching ballet so this app with its flash card presentation is informational and fun.

Must have for getting in shape!

I LOVE this app! I’ve been using it to keep track of my walks around the lake and other long walks. I’ve found it very motivating and I love that RunKeeper will send me an email letting me know that I’ve bested my previous stats.

It has options for many different workouts and plans, including treadmill activities which I plan to try out as soon as I buy my new treadmill. It will also show you your route on a map as well as the speed, distance, intervals and calories burned! I've turned off all the sounds and guidance but they are also included.

It will also link to your Facebook and automatically post your newest activity if you choose to allow it.

Share What You Want, Hide the Rest

  • App review for GenialWriting
  • Posted by Gabellini July 21, 2011
  • Recommended for Students or Tech/Social Networking Junkies

This App is great for anyone who likes to write down thoughts, ideas or really anything, regularly. Then you have a capability of sharing it via text, email and even facebook so that you can carefully select what you want people to see. This always seems to help me clear my thoughts because I'll write down everything that's on my mind, and then be able to pick out stuff to share that won't offend anyone or cause drama
