You probably order 1,000 paper business cards at one time, and then when they unexpectedly run out, you wonder if the dog ate them for dinner or what! Paper cards do take up room in your wallet or desk, and you often pay quite a bit to get them customized the way you want. Why not try using The Card which resides in your phone and takes up no space, and right now costs you $0! With The Card you can electronically send your digital business card to new clients with a tap, as well as conveniently grouping your contacts with their location information.




The Card is simple to use with minimal keystrokes but provides maximum utility! Basically, you just fill in the fields with name, address, phone, web URL etc. , enter the recipient's email and any optional identifier tags, tap Send Your Card, and off your contact info goes! You will be easily able to share your digital business card (using the .vcf format) with anyone. Additionally, enjoy the functionality of logging all the contacts with whom you've shared the card. Use The Card to make sure you don't get caught without your business contact info again when you've met an important business or personal contact, and want to exchange information.

COOL CONCLUSION: "The Card is a useful tool to quickly, conveniently and always exchange and send your contact information!"

iOS 5 Tips & Tricks Guide by Lifehack (-Tech Reads)





Now that you've downloaded iOS 5, you're probably eagerly trying to uncover the many secrets hidden therein. Some are obvious and easy to find, others take a little research. Personally, there's nothing I love more than to delve into the software and ferret out secrets. Today we are presenting you with a guest post: Lifehack’s iOS 5 Tips and Tricks Guide (one of my favorite sites because of its useful and productive articles) on iOS 5 Tips & Tricks. Read on to see what Lifehack has to say about this new operating system that has so much to offer.

Camera

Quick access – To get to your camera quickly just double tap your home button when your iPhone is locked or asleep. You will see a small camera button on the bottom left of the lock screen. Touching it will take you to your camera app. Snap away.

Grid – Under options, where the HDR option is, you are now given an option to place a grid over your shot, allowing you to line it up. Power of thirds!

Slide to album / camera – When you are on your camera screen you can flick the camera to the right to go straight to your album. Then you can flick left to get back to your camera.

No need for too many camera apps – The iPhone’s camera app now has built in cropping, red-eye removal, and auto-enhancements. So for quick and simple editing you can stick with the built in app.

Hardware snap – You can now snap a picture by clicking your volume up button while in the Camera app.

Notification Center

Notification Center is a much needed addition to iOS as the very modal popups have gotten quite annoying over the years. Notifications are now on par with Android and could be even better by some aspects.

Organize your notifications – It’s easy to organize what notifications you want to see and in what order you want to see them. Going to Settings > Notifications you have access to all the apps that support the new Notification Center. Tap the Edit button in the top right and you can organize the order as well as move some apps’ notifications to “Not in Notification Center”. Also, you can skip organizing notifications by order and choose to view them by time.

Adjust your notifications – By tapping on each app in Notification Center you can adjust the alert’s style (None, Banners, and (old school) Alerts). You can also control the app’s badges and if the notifications show up in the lock screen.

iCloud

iCloud is a huge advancement in iOS 5. Here are some of the things that you will love to know about it.

iCloud Backup – When you are setting up iOS 5 for the first time, you are asked whether-or-not you want to backup to iCloud. Regardless if you answered yes or now you can always go to Setting > iCloud > Storage and Backup and turn on iCloud Backup. Your iPhone will now backup automatically when you are connected to power and WiFi and with your screen locked. You can backup manually by pressing the Backup Now button. You have to be connected to WiFi to backup.

Managing iCloud storage – If you are running low on iCloud storage, which you can check by going to Settings > iCloud > Storage and Backup > Manage Storage, you can easily delete backups of iOS or even documents that you have put “in the cloud”. That is if you have any iWork apps on your device.

General sync items – Of course, you can turn off any iCloud sync items from Settings > iCloud.

Maps

Multiple route choices – The biggest addition to maps is the ability to choose among multiple routes when getting directions. To choose a different route after getting directions, simply click on the alternate route’s blue line.
Safari


Reading List
– Oh, no! Is it an Instapaper killer!? Not really at all. But it is easy to use and a great feature to have integrated into the OS. When you are on an article that you want to read later, click the middle bookmark button and choose “Add to Reading List”. Then to get to your Reading List click the little Open Book Button (the second from the right) and choose Reading List. There you will see a list of all the articles that you added.

Reader – Reading List doesn’t inherently do much of anything other than give you a simple list of stuff you want to read later. The real magic is in the Reader function of Safari. This strips down the page and lets you see just the content of the article in a nicely formatted way. On any article in Safari, just tap the Reader button in the address bar.
Twitter

Twitter integration. It’s a shame that no other apps can hook into iOS this way, but it’s very nice to see Twitter get the rock star treatment.

System-wide sign in – Go to Settings > Twitter. You can sign in with your Twitter credentials as well as install the official Twitter app. You don’t “need” to install the official Twitter app to take advantage of using Twitter in mobile Safari. After signing in you can update your iOS contacts with information from your Twitter contacts.

Tweeting from Safari – On any page in mobile Safari tap the middle “Bookmark” button. In the list choose “Tweet”. Fill in your Tweet. Couldn’t be easier and more convenient! You can also add your location by tapping the “Add location” label at the bottom of the Tweet prompt.

Calendar

The calendar on iOS is pretty mature but there were a few tweaks that iOS 5 brought to it.

Adjust appointments – To adjust the time-span or time of an appointment long tap on the appointment and then drag it wherever you want to move it to. After long tapping you can let go and then adjust the span of the appointment by dragging the small top and bottom handles.

Week view – You can go to week view by rotating the device to landscape.

Year view – On iPad you can go to year view by rotating the device to landscape.

Reminders

I was super excited about reminders when they were announced at WWDC. The idea of having a nice, simple task and reminder manager built directly into iOS is compelling. Personally, I am an OmniFocus user, but to set up a quick reminder, Reminders is the is perfect.

Add and adjust lists – Tap on the list button on the top left and then tap “Edit” on the top right. You can then adjust the order of your lists as well as add new lists by tapping “Create New List…”

Navigate and using lists – You can navigate all of your lists by swiping left and right or by tapping the list button in the top left and then tapping which list you want to go to. Adding tasks is simple. Just hit the plus button on the list and type the name of the task.

You can rapidly type in tasks by typing and tapping return and typing more. Tapping Done on the top right will get you out of “task adding mode.” To edit a task, tap the task and edit the task’s details. You can add a reminder for the task at your current location, or set a specific due date. You will then be notified through Notification Center (as long as you set up the notification).

Mail

I don’t like to use any email application more than I have to and with the new iOS 5 enhancements to the stock mail app, Apple has made it easier and faster to use.

Searching mailboxes – To search any “mailbox” (that is any label for you Gmail peeps or any folder for you regular mail guys) tap which one you want to search then scroll up all the way and start typing. When you start typing four buttons show up below your query allowing you to search the fields From, To, Subject, or All. All searches every aspect of your email messages.

Notifications – This goes with any app that allows notifications. You can turn on lock screen previews of your incoming mail, choose how many messages you want to see, choose the way you want to be interrupted (I mean notified) by the message, and also turn off the mail unread count badge completely.

Rich Text – You can now add some rich text formatting to your messages. Long hold on any word, select the text you want to format, tap the small right arrow, then tap ‘BIU’ to choose either bold, italics or underline. You can also change the quote level of the sentence you are working on.

Move recipients – You can quickly move mail recipients from the To, CC, and BCC fields by long holding their little blue name labels and dragging them to the desired field.

Well, there's much more to see on this very helpful page and site. So to continue learning more about features of iOS 5, stop on by Lifehack and get your iDevice working up to its full potential!

Class Mate




Developer Quote: "Class Mate is an attendance app that can be used for tracking any type of member based activity from classrooms to boardrooms."

- COST:   99 cents - APP STORE STARS: 4
- Categories: Education, Lifestyle, Locator, Native, Utilities

There are so many occasions on which you need to take a head count whether for legal, social or personal reasons. Teachers do this in class every day, sports coaches do the same at games and practices, business meetings need to keep track of attendees, and that is just to name a few occasions. Class Mate does a great job, very easily with no fuss, of keeping track of attendees at any event. It has a simple and efficient interface that allows for entry of one or many classes and its members. Features include configurable classes and member list, session tracking, both check-in and check-out buttons, and a session summary that can be emailed and used in a spreadsheet application.

We've mentioned that using this counter app is very simple. Here's a rough idea of how to use it to your benefit:

1. Tap the Edit button in the upper left hand corner to edit the sample class.
2. Add new classes with the plus button in the upper right.
3. You can select a class using the arrow buttons in the lower middle. There is also a list button that lets you change the order of your classes.
4. Once you have a class selected, you can tap the Class button in the lower left to add class members. You'll need to set up all of your class members before you add a session.
5. The session button in the lower right takes you to the sessions screen. You can view, add, and email a report on all of our session for that class.
6. There are three check boxes for each class member.
In - Class member is present.
Late - Class member is present and was late.
Out - Class member is present and has been checked out of the class.

Don't try to guess or draw with paper and pencil the participant information of your group meeting. It's so much simpler to whip out your iDevice and tap in the numbers needed to keep an accurate account of attendance. It's an uncomplicated process to document participants and session information with this attendance app.

COOL CONCLUSION: "ClassMate is a handy tool to keep track of attendees so you don't need to recall any names or faces after the meeting."

Keeper® Password & Data Vault



Developer Quote: "Store your passwords and private information. Protect yourself from hackers."

 
- COST: Free    - APP STORE STARS: 3-1/2
- Categories: Lists, Native, Safe, Storage, Utilities
If you're anything like me, your memory just can not hold in all the loads of information, passwords, special notes etc. that pass through your life on a daily basis. I'm constantly having to look at a password vault to check the combinations of my User ID, email and password to one site or another. It's time to give your memory a rest, considering all the other tasks you must do in the space of 24 hours! Have you tried using Keeper Password to contain your important information securely? Keeper Password has many excellent features that you can utilize to simplify life as shown below:

- Keeper® stores information on your iPhone using military-grade AES encryption.

- Keeper® protects your identity by creating high-strength security passwords and remembers them for you.

- Protects You Against Hackers:
Secures and safeguards your private information on your mobile device.

- Convenient & Easy-to-Use:
Quickly enter, organize, save and access your private information.

- Auto-Launch:
Launch websites from within Keeper records.

- Instant Search:
Find records fast.

- Unlimited Records:
Never run out of space for your stored information.

- Secure:
Records are encrypted with military-grade ciphers and stored on your device.

- Customization:
Create your own folder names and themes.

- Universal:
Works on iPhone, iPad, Mac, PC and all other mobile platforms.

- Backup:
Store your information in the cloud or to your computer. (* Premium Version)

- Secured Cloud Storage:
Your data can be encrypted and archived in our Cloud Security Vault™ (* Premium Version)

- Supports multiple devices:
Sync your records on all your devices and computers. (* Premium Version)

- Live Customer Support:
Access customer support during business hours via live chat, phone or email. (* Premium Version)


There are certainly many worthwhile features to Keeper. However, be aware that only some are offered in the free version while the rest are given in the paid version which is basically a top-in app purchase. Here's a summary of the differences between the two:

* After 30 days, your free trial of Keeper Backup will expire. You will still be able to use the free version of Keeper on your mobile device which will allow you to enter, access and store all of your private information on your mobile device BUT you will not be able to use the following premium features:
Cloud Backup, Multi-Device Sync, Data Restore and Live Customer Support.
To use these premium features of Keeper beyond the free-trial period, you can purchase the full version for only $9.99 per year.

I think using the this free version is satisfactory enough for me. I don't feel I need any of the Premium features, although multi-device sync and Cloud backup may be nice. I've noticed some people prefer password apps that back up to the web, while others rather not have any sensitive information on the web and rather store this stuff only on their device which is exactly what Keeper Password does. This utility app does a fine job of easily tracking your passwords and other sensitive data so that it is easily available to you.

COOL CONCLUSION: "Keeper® Password & Data Vault makes it easy to have all your valuable passwords and data at hand so you'll never get locked out of a website again!"
--Date/Version: Updated 9/14/11 - Version 4.10
--iOS/Age Rating:  This app requires iOS 3.0 or later. Rated 4+.

UniQPass Pro-Secure Password Manager & Photo Wallet



Developer Quote: "Keep your credit cards, passwords, and other personal information at your fingertips."

 
- COST: $1.99    - APP STORE STARS: 3
- Categories: Lists, Native, Organization, Safe, Storage, Utilities
I've recently kept a paper copy of all the club, membership and credit cards in my wallet - this in case my wallet is ever stolen. And, yes, that has happened once before at a gym! What a hassle it was back then to remember everything in my wallet as I had not yet begun my paper copies habit. Even better than that method now, however, is UniQPass Pro-Secure Password Manager & Photo Wallet. This app allows you to securely enter data into your device where it is easily, but securely, accessible at any time. In addition, if you register online at UniQPass Windows version, which is now free, you can sync to your iDevice.

Basically, with UniQPass, you enter important card information (any type card normally kept in your wallet), and UniQPass encrypts and saves your info in the cloud where you can access it at any time, from anywhere. UniQPass uses powerful and secure 256-bit AES encryption which is of prime importance to me. Another handy feature is that the Auto-Sync feature enables you to access your updated data on all your devices right away. As your information is kept in the cloud, this means when you reset your device (as happens on occasion), you won’t need to retype your data and all files will be restored! If you like, you can use Instant Capture to take a photo of your cards as a convenient way to store their details without typing them in. Here are some of the super convenient and useful features of UniQPass Pro-Secure Password Manager & Photo Wallet:

- Ultra secure: 256-bit AES encryption technology to protect your data in the local device, cloud server, and even during the data transmission.

- Instant Capture: UniQPass allows you to capture and store images of your cards into the photo library so you can always use it as an image associated with your card.

- Auto-Sync and backup: Just logon to your account and you will instantly get access to all the data you need on your devices. Even when you reset the device, UniQPass will automatically restore your data for you. It allows you to synchronize your data with a cloud server so you can access it anywhere, anytime, on any device, via Wi-Fi, 3G or GPRS.

- Store Important Information: Stores and protects your credit card or membership details from any unauthorized access, keeping your information secret and safe.

- Pre-defined Templates: UniQPass lets you choose from 22 different themes and folder types to make your E-wallet more interesting, fun and personal.

- Flexible Organizer: UniQPass allows you to create and rename your own category according to your individual preferences.

- Cross Platform Support: UniQPass supports iPhone, iPad, Android Smartphone and tablet, Windows PC.



I opened the app and registered my e-mail and password. I was looking for instructions, but was not able to find them. However, my poor brain was able to figure out the input method. Once registered, you will find 2 folders labeled Quick Start and Samples. I ignored these and instead tapped the + button in top right of the screen to make my own Credit Card, Memberships and other Category List folders. Once my Credit Card folder was ready, I tapped the + sign again then chose the type credit card I was planning to enter. (There are many sample template pictures from which you can choose to match your card type).

Next, I tapped the first icon (I think it represents a padlock), entered the name of my credit card and lastly used each of the Details, Picture and Comment buttons at the bottom of the screen. The Picture button allows you to take a picture of your card, or use one from your photo library. The Details button gives you several fields to fill in with your card data, if you wish. Comments is for any particular notes you care to add to the card data. Once all information was entered and saved, I then tapped the sync (double arrow) button to save it to the cloud so I could access it from my computer while on the road, if necessary. Word of caution - after inputting your cards, be sure to go back to the app Logon Screen before exiting since if app sits in multi-tasking tray on data page, anyone could access your info.

I did go online and register for UniQPass so I could have web access. Like the app, all that is required is e-mail and password. Sure enough, the info I had just entered in my iPhone appeared on my computer! It's wonderful how organized you can become with tools like these that also give you peace of mind. I have two words to describe this photo wallet app, "Super Handy"!

COOL CONCLUSION: "Let UniQPass Pro-Secure Password Manager & Photo Wallet organize your wallet to keep all your cards, notes and membership info handy, accessible and secure."
--Date/Version: Updated 8/19/11 - Version 1.0.9.0
--iOS/Age Rating:  This app requires iOS 4.0 or later. Rated 4+.

Continue this process as it elongates the photo to capture all you need. Tap the Finish button or hold your device in Landscape mode so that the image can be stitched and created. Save the pic or cancel creation if you are not satisfied. You may then upload the image to Dermandar’s website to share with family and friends. It's that simple for you to create stunning panorama vistas!

COOL CONCLUSION: "Don't pass up the next occasion to get a shot of a truly memorable vista, large family gathering or award-winning photo moment using Dermandar Panorama!"

Off to bed!



Developer Quote: "Enjoy with your children a unique experience: A celebration of imagination and fantasy in attractive and innovative interactive scenes reading Off to bed!."

- COST:   $2.99   - APP STORE STARS:  N/A
- Categories: Books, Education, Entertainment, Native, Preschool, Elementary School


Children require infinite tenderness, care, nurturing, love and patience. Perhaps you've been the parent of a kindergartner sobbing on the first day of school refusing to let go of your hand, or had a child loudly demand a toy or treat from the store. As I often say, "Been there, done that!" Something that requires patience on a daily basis, however, is the bed-time routine. When children are all snuggled up and ready for bed, they want and should have (from my point of view anyway) a soothing bed-time story. The bonding between parent and child is profound, and little ones are able to fill their imaginations with sweet dreams and happy thoughts to take away any fears of darkness or separation from their parents through the night.


Off to bed! is an absolutely lovely bedtime story that is filled with charming, soft lullaby music that will get your child ready for sleep. The book is written in verse which is always a favorite of children because of its easy cadence. Each page contains interactive fun and lots of giggling from the child in the story. The interactive objects move and make noises that are reminiscent of a parent's voice actually reading the book. Touch the page curls at the bottom of the display to move forward or backward throughout. Tap and hold the pink character in the bottom center of the screen to return to the Menu. In this story, the sweet, little child climbs into bed and is taken on a dreamy adventure in his cradle which has sprouted wings and a propeller to take him on a relaxing ride!


Some of the heart-warming features of this precious iPhone bedtime story book are as follows:

• Suitable for children of all ages
• Excellent graphic presentation
• Original and creative script
• Exquisite illustrations by Màriam Ben-Arab
• Rich variety of interactive elements, with playful animations and sounds that will create a surprising experience
• Intuitive and easy interface with direct access to all scenes
• Easy to read thanks to a dedicated typographic work
• Touch each phrase to repeat its sound: A wonderful feature for early readers
• Sweet and soothing original soundtrack
• Develops the early hand to eye coordination for children
• Reciting and counting numbers has never been more fun!
• You will be able to control:
- Activating/Deactivating the VOICEOVER. While activated it reads automatically each page of the story by a professional voiceover artist.
- Activating/Deactivating the MUSIC. It allows to listen or switch off the soundtrack
- Activating/Deactivating the AUTOMATIC TURN PAGE MODE. It limits the interactivity on each page to 15 seconds, after which time it turns the page automatically.


The story begins with the parents putting the child to bed, and this your own child can accomplish by dragging and dropping him into his cradle. You will soon notice the underlying theme of the story is that the parent is counting down on each page in series from 5 to 1 - whether counting sheep, stars or clouds. Near the end of the book, we finally reach to number 1 which is when the child is content and ready for sleep at least. I could not help but think what a wonderful aid this book is to a parent who wants their child to sleep dreaming of happy thoughts. The young child can enjoy gentle sounds, soothing graphics in soft colors, swiping items, listening to the sweet and simple story, and the terrific, heart-warming soundtrack.



One of my favorite, interactive objects is the music staff with stars which when touched actually plays musical notes sounding as if played on a xylophone. The soft, cottony sheep look sleepy and "Baaaa" as they are counted down then disappear one by one. All the objects and colors of this book are designed to induce sleep and contentment. The mobile rocking above the child's head is as slow and hypnotic as the narrator's voice. The soft cotton-candy pink clouds drift in the sky hiding a peek-a-boo rainbow. Another one of my favorite pages, for it is such a sweet sight, is the moonbeam cradling and kissing the child goodnight. The child finally happily falls asleep with many of the book's characters fondly looking on. The book ends when the parents come in to check their child is sleeping well - all is well in their home this night!
COOL CONCLUSION: "Off to bed! is a gorgeous, melodic and perfect bedtime story book for young children, as well as a parent's best friend!"

Tips & Tricks For Your Device: Setting Tones for Communications-iOS5

TODAY'S TIP: SETTING TONES FOR COMMUNICATIONS - iOS5
 

Question?

So many messages, calendar alerts, emails and reminders are sent out daily. Usually though, only a handful are urgent or from a special someone. The rest can wait and don't require your immediate attention. So what to do if you're at a business meeting and your phone is quietly alerting you? Should you look down and scroll through your notifications? You could be on pins and needles every time your phone alerts you, which is literally all day long!



Solution!

There's an easier way to find out which communications really need your attention. Note that there are two parts to this tip:

Go to your Settings and tap Sounds where you'll see all the choices available to you. You may set the following: Vibration On/Off, Ringtone, Text Tone, New Voicemail, New Mail, Sent Mail, Tweet, Calendar Alerts, Reminder Alerts and Vibration Patterns too! Tap on any one of these items and then select a sound from the choices given. These are all the basic tones/vibrations which sound for your collective contact list.

However, you can also further fine tune your tone choices under each contact name. Here you are able to customize the following: Ringtone, Vibration and Text Tone. There is no custom setting as yet for Email. (Still, with the help of other ringtone and text tone apps, I have been able to set up a large selection from which to choose for all these categories). The Vibration alert is particularly fun as you can tap out a vibration you like and save it. 

Go to your Contacts, select a specific name, then Edit. From here, you can choose any field to answer. Also, go near the end of the page where it says Add Field and tap that to reveal even more field selections available to you. When you are finished customizing, tap Done.

So now when I get a message or call from someone, if I have assigned them a specific tone or vibration, then I know immediately who is trying to reach me. If I'm interested, I'll look down and deal with it, but if I'm not, I can continue doing what I was involved in prior to the interruption!

How many times have you visited a lovely spot on vacation, or even found a beautiful home while house-hunting, seen trendy clothes at the mall or had any other of those "Ooooh....Aaaah!" moments as you rush around every day? Sometimes you may take a pic of the item that interests you, or of your child doing something really cute, but you don't write down that specific location, time or other details that will help you remember more about that moment and place.

You can make life simple for yourself by using Voice Photo Recorder to record all the tips, notes and details you need for memories that will last forever. You never again have to ponder over where you were at any time such as by that picturesque park, or when you last visited Aunt Sue. Your notes and photos will be with you at all times to jog your memory. Once you have your photo/audio composition, go ahead and post it to Facebook to show friends, or even e-mail it to family. Some of the helpful and memorable features of Voice Photo Recorder are as follows:

Record/play/pause/append/delete your voice recording easily. Your recording will be saved as a .wav file and can be synced with iTunes.

To do/Shopping/Family/Travel/Ideas/Meeting/Business/Food
- Email: Both voice recording and photo can be emailed as attachments.
- Facebook posting: You can post both voice recording and photo to your Facebook account.


Basically, to use this app, you start your recording or narration of what you want to let others know. Then attach a photo by camera or from your photo album. You may play your recording back, append to your your recording (which is a super awesome feature), edit or add categories of the nature of your composition (an organizational must), and finally, email your recording or post it to Facebook. Simply tap the "i" information button when in the app to get the details you need on the meaning of each icon. Voice Photo Recorder is a truly helpful app to record those warm and fuzzy moments in life or the important details you need to document your photos!
