Battery Go (Battery Life Tool)



COST: Free
DESCRIPTION: Native, Utilities
..RELEASED: 7/5/09, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 3 Stars..


If you are lucky enough to have a Mophie Air Pack, Kensington or other battery back-up pack, perhaps the short life of your phone's battery does not distress you too much. However, for other people like myself that constantly use the phone as a mini-laptop, battery usage is of prime importance. With Battery Go, you get a simple and easy-to-use app which gives you a display of what really counts. This would be icons designating the functions of the Web, Phone, Music and Video. The numbers displaying hours and minutes are beneath each function, and there is a slider bar on top of all these icons displaying the percentage of what is left in overall battery time. This app is simple enough to use and read, and functions pretty accurately. Keep it handy so you don't get caught with your battery on "red".

"Say you're sitting at your sister's high-school graduation, but you'd rather be watching your favorite movie, and want to know if you'll have enough battery life to last through the whole ceremony. Maybe you're on a plane wanting to listen to your favorite tunes, but you're not sure if you'll have enough juice to call your mom once you land. Just launch Battery Go and see the percentage and how much time you have remaining to use all the features of your phone."

--OS and Age Rating:  This app requires OS 3.0 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: Use the slider to calculate various hypothetical scenarios.

Phobias 500



COST: Free
DESCRIPTION: Entertainment, Native, Reference
..RELEASED: 8/27/09, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 3-1/2 Stars..


Phobias 500 is certainly an interesting app with a whole new set of terminology for me to learn. I can't think of any phobias which I have. I mean, I don't like reptiles, but I'm not phobic about them. However, I find it pretty interesting to see all the different phobias that do exist because it helps to understand certain people in a better way. Phobias 500 contains a selection of 500 phobias and definitions. There is one listed per page, and you only have to shake or tap your phone to move to the next page and phobia. You may also swipe left/right or up/down to move to previous and next phobias. You will be amazed at the amount of phobias you will find. The app is educational, but could be slightly more organized with alphabetical or type listings. I'm sure that will soon be remedied, however. In the meantime, you can impress your friends with your new found knowledge.

"What makes your heart pound, heart tremble and spine tingle with terror. Do you have autophobia (fear of being alone), mysophobia (fear of germs), or dentophobia (fear of dentists)? Up to 18% of Americans suffer from Phobias. A phobia is defined as an intense, irrational fear out of proportion to the danger and beyond voluntary control."

--OS and Age Rating:  This app requires OS 3.0 or later. Rated 12+ for Infrequent/Mild Horror/Fear Themes and Infrequent/Mild Sexual Content or Nudity.

Some of the new features include: landscape mode, see your Events and RSVP, see your friends' birthdays, upload videos from an iPhone 3GS, complete photo management (create, edit and delete albums), change your Profile picture, zoom into photos, etc. My favorite addition is being able to create favorite shortcuts to my favorite Friends.

2009 US Open



COST: Free
DESCRIPTION: Entertainment, Native, Sports
..RELEASED: 8/20/09, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 4 Stars..


Although I am unathletic, I do love watching professional tennis on TV. I love the big games such as Wimbledon, and the French and US Opens. I can't always keep up with the news and scores though because of work and family obligations. Now with the 2009 US Open app, I am going to be very educated about this big upcoming game. The app is a very polished and attractive one. When you open it, you have a screen with 12 buttons designating the following: News (news updates on and off the court), Scores (live, scoring updates), Schedule (daily play schedule), Draws (main draw brackets), Video (on demand video highlights), Photos (stunning photo coverage), Players, Tweets (US Open official tweets), US Open.org Radio (live, streaming radio and play-by-play coverage), Spectator Info (a fan's guide to the Open, featuring maps to the ground, etc.), IBM & The US Open and Share. There are helpful text zoom buttons to increase/decrease font size. These are designated as 'T-' and 'T+'. If you are in a particular section of the app such as Photos, just tap 'Home' at the bottom of the screen to get back to the 12 buttons. The app runs smoothly and well, and will be very informative especially when the 2009 Open is up and running.

"The USTA and IBM with special features from American Express are pleased to offer the official iPhone app for the 2009 US Open Tennis championships. Follow the action live during the open August 31st to September 13th, 2009."

Pin Me



COST: 99 cents
DESCRIPTION: Locator, Native, Utilities, Travel
..RELEASED: 7/16/09, VERSION: 1.0.1 -- RATING: 3-1/2 Stars..


I think Pin Me is a really helpful tool to have when traveling, or when you are having friends over. If you are traveling and get lost, simply send a Pin Me e-mail to your host and then they can help you with directions from there. Conversely, if someone is coming over or meeting you out somewhere, you can send them your location so they can easily find you. If you are stuck in traffic somewhere and late for a date or appointment, go ahead and send a Pin Me e-mail so that your date knows you are where you really say you are, and knows to expect you later! When you send out an e-mail with Pin Me, it is a plain text mail that carries the URL of the Google map location. The link should be clickable on most phones and e-mail software. You can also use Pin Me to send a text message by using the recipient's e-mail address carrier domain. There is no end to the host of useful scenarios whereby you can use this locator map. I would definitely keep it handy to avoid frustration in getting to a location, and meeting up with friends.

"Pin Me sends out an e-mail or an SMS with a Google Map map link to show your current location. It works on all generations of iPhone and iPod Touch though OS 3.0 is required. Everything is done within the app. When Pin Me is launched it shows a map with your current location. Compose and send the e-mail within the app. The e-mail address are obtained from within your iPhone Contacts settings.

--OS and Age Rating:  This app requires OS 3.0 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: Let your friends know your exact location when you're on your way over.

Journals: Middle School Love and War



COST: Free
DESCRIPTION: Books, Education, Lifestyle, Middle-School, Native
..RELEASED: 8/24/09, VERSION: 1.5 -- RATING: 4 Stars..


Middle School is a really tough time for kids. It is a time of testing the waters, of being independent-yet not willing to take the responsibility, of dealing with the cruelty and snide comments of peers, and of not being comfortable inside your own skin just yet. This book is the first in a series about Lanie Spurdle, and has received a great response from all types of readers. In this book, you will see just how hard kids are trying to grow up, and all the obstacles and unknowns thrown in their way. Lanie's own discovery is that, even though she is filled with questions of all kinds, the most important thing she can do to help herself is to ask questions, and not keep them bottled up inside. She learns that talking and sharing her thoughts and fears is what will help her to emerge as a beautiful butterfly, and will also help others in the process.

"Journals by Louise Palanker is the story of a young girl who takes a forbidden journey into family history and learns that, more important than reaching her destination is, is being bold enough to take the trip. Kids, parents and teachers are raving about Journals: Middle School Love and War."

--Tech Jargon: spoofing - Generally speaking, it is to forge the IP address of a machine that's attacking a server on the Internet, something a hacker might do if the opportunity was available. More specifically is the act of email spoofing, which may occur in different forms but all have a similar result: A user receives email that appears to have originated from one source when it actually was sent from another source. Similar to phishing, email spoofing is often an attempt to trick the user into making a damaging statement or releasing sensitive information (such as passwords).
