  • 5 Top Productivity Enhancing Apps of 2012

    Whether you are in the Apple iOS or Android smartphone camp, you most likely use productivity apps to make your life easier. And while mobile applications were originally fairly limited, public demand and advancing technology have made it possible for virtually anyone to develop them – with many dedicated to helping users make life more productive and organized. Here are some of our favorites.

    Dropbox is perfect for online file saving and sharing. It is a great application to use if you have multiple work locations or are constantly on the go and need files at your fingertips. It is free and easy to use and you can even share files, images or videos from anywhere with everyone on the project. Dropbox also allows you to store up to 2GB of data for free for an unlimited period of time and if you refer anyone to the service, you’ll receive an extra 500MB of extra storage space.  This app will work both on Android and iOS platforms.

    Evernote allows you to keep notes and to-do lists organized and available wherever and whenever you need them. You can create text, web-clips and PDF notes and you can synch between your computer and mobile devices. Want to share notes between friends and colleagues? Sure, it can do that. With a paid subscription you can also give multi-user editing permissions as well to ensure you’re always looking at the most up-to-date content. This app is compatible with both iOS and Android based platforms.

    Bump is an easy and free way to share images and contacts between two devices and has a very user-friendly interface. When you and a friend or colleague both tap “bump” and touch devices with the other user, you will share the relevant content instantly – no email, no texting required. Who knew that sharing could be this much fun? Bump is compatible with both iOS and Android.

    TeuxDeux is a simple browser-based application that allows you to keep your to-do list(s) with you at all times. Just keep adding to your lists while on the go and it will automatically synch with your account online. And while you can always organize ideas by day of the week, you also have the option to save these to a  “someday” tab in case it’s not something that needs to be addressed in the immediate future but you want to ensure you record it – neat!  iOS and Android-compatible. Free.

    Dragon Dictation is a great speech-to-text app for when you are on the go and need to write something down or if you think of something in the middle of the night. Just like you would with Siri, talk (“dictate”) into your phone and the Dragon app will turn your speech into text on it’s simple text pad interface. Best of all, it’s free and you can then share this app-produced text via Facebook, Twitter, text message, and/or email with the click of a button. Only iOS compatible.

    Do you have any other productivity apps that you can’t live without?

  • Top 5 Photography Enhancing Apps of 2012

    When it comes to mobile apps, how do you pick the best one for your needs? Do you go by reviews, word of mouth, or trial and error? No matter which direction you go to pick your apps, if you’re a photography enthusiast (or just want to learn more about photography), why not try some of these fun photography-enhancing apps that we have enjoyed so far.

    Instagram. This free and powerful photo-sharing app allows you to upload and share your pictures with your close friends and family, and anyone else for that matter. Just upload or take a new photo and choose a filter and your image is ready to go. You can even share your images directly to Facebook and Twitter.

    Hipstamatic. With the touch of a button, you can now make your digital photographs look like they were taken with a regular old-fashioned camera. You can easily change the lens, flash and film type used to make each of your photos look truly unique. Quickly and easily share these images on Instagram or other social media sites.

    ShakeIt. ShakeIt brings back everyone’s favorite camera directly onto your phone – the Polaroid camera. This app allows you to turn any of your phone’s photos into a perfect Polaroid image. Check out their blog for some really cool ideas and community-shared images!

    Color Splash. Color Splash allows you to quickly edit your image’s color palette by converting them to black and white while keeping select colors in the detail of every image. You can use your finger as a brush to paint sections of your image or bring back the original color. You can also zoom in and out of your picture to work up close and personal with each detail. Like the aforementioned apps, this one allows you to share your finished products on multiple social networks as well.

    InstaCollage. This app comes in both a free version and a paid version and works directly with the Instagram app mentioned above. This app will allow you to make a collage out of your current photo library and upload it directly to Instagram for all of your followers to see. This app has tons of collage layouts as well as fun boarders to use.

  • Holiday Shopping: Top Selling Gadgets of 2012

    It can be nearly impossible to come up with the perfect present for that techie in your life. With technology being so prevalent nowadays, gadgets have become the most popular category for people to shop for – everyone wants something electronic!

    But what would be the perfect techie present? We are here to help get your buying process started with a list of the top high tech gadgets this holiday season. Everyone has an opinion on different brands, so we left out specific products, but if you keep in mind the following categories in your holiday shopping you’ll be sure to get a smile when you give your gift.


    Even though modern smartphones can take pictures of sufficient quality for posting online, it’s good to have a dedicated camera to capture the shots you really want to keep – and dare we say it – print. For everyday usage, look for digital cameras with at least 10 megapixels. For more professional pictures, the prices definitely go up, and you will most likely want to look into getting a digital SLR instead of a point and shoot camera. To get the absolutely best print quality however, you still can’t beat an old school 35mm camera.

    Portable Media Players

    Media players have come a long way in the past few years. Although some people use their smart phones to listen to music and watch movies, many people prefer to have their media in a smaller, easier to carry media player. Media players now even have Wi-Fi access, making it easier to access the Internet on the go. Some offer photo and video capabilities as well.


    Tablets are the “in” tech toy of the year. Easier to transport than a laptop, but with all the same functionality, these devices offer the ultimate answer for staying connected to the world while also allowing for media sharing (pictures, books, movies, etc.). There is a major brand battle going on in this space, with multiple legitimate contenders vying for bragging rights. Do your research for the features your techie will want most, but getting a tablet gift is a virtual lock for being a favorite gift this holiday season.

    Smart Phones

    Smart phones are the cornerstone technology advancement of our generation. They offer safety and convenience with GPS options and allow them to stay connected with friends and family through social media, the web, and of course texts and calls – if you actually use a phone for its voice functionality anymore.


    It’s good practice to update your laptop at least every four years to stay on top of the latest technology. If you know someone lugging around a brick of a laptop, or who constantly complains that their programs take too long to load or have run out of storage space, a laptop would be a welcome gift. New laptops have better web cams, better Wi-Fi, Windows 8, and more.

    Protect Your Investments

    How do you keep the gifts you give as amazing as they are the first day? By taking care of them! Protective skin covers can help prolong their life, and keep them looking new throughout years of use and abuse. Don’t forget to order your Best Skins Ever protective skins along with your technology purchases.  Check out our tablet skins, media player skins, or Apple product skins to get started.
