The Best Book-Based Apps

Category: Content & WritingFeaturedReading ListTechnology Comments: No comments

Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 11.27.43 AMReading can be rough … as can tech. With both subjects, there is simply too much to navigate. Too many books that have been written, too many aps to explore – so many choices that it’s overwhelming to even know where to begin. Which is why we rely on the advice and reviews of others who have tried them out first. Expert advice from fellow book nerds, and opinions from others who were there already … hence, the best and most useful book apps around.

Out of all our reading days and tested tech experience, here are our favorite models.

Goodreads

Not only is this app great for looking up reviews and determining whether or not you’ll like a book, it’s ideal for keeping track of what you’ve already read. If you’re into that type of thing...

3 iOS Aps to Help Make Writing Easier

Category: Content & WritingEducationFeatured Comments: No comments

By now, there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that there’s an app for absolutely everything. Even those that we’ll never get to because they’re so beyond our understanding in any particular subject (or just beyond our phone’s storage capacity). But when it comes to writing (like any other subject of apps), there are those that are better than others. In order to get the most out of your keyboard strokes (or lack thereof), test out these voted faves.

Crushing It with Candy: The Game We Can’t Stop Playing

Category: Et ceteraFeaturedInfographics Comments: No comments

If you’re like millions of others (us included), you’ve jumped on board the Candy Crush train. And in all likelihood, the Soda Saga as well. You’re matching and playing your way to the top any chance you get. Whether that means bedtime, while watching TV, or any other spare moment you might happen to get, you’re in the trance. After all, there’s a reason this game is one of the highest grossing of all time. Which is even more impressive considering most of its players opt for free versions. (But maybe accidentally hit the new lives button every week or so.)

For the low-down on your favorite game’s stats (and more), check out this comprehensive infographic.

Why it’s Time to Create an Internet Lingo App

Category: EducationFeaturedMobile Comments: No comments

the lingo show with bugsAbout three times per week (sometimes more) I come across a new piece of Internet lingo. It might be an acronym, it might be a hashtag, or just some generalized term that’s been turned into something different. Simply of context from its traditional dictionary definition. Whatever its journey into Internet understanding, however, it’s clear that pretty much everyone else knows what it means. So I look up the phrase (usually on Urban Dictionary), and roll my eyes at how ridiculous it is. Either the term in general or my not having known it.

Personal feelings aside, however, it’s high time someone invented an acronym identifier. Preferably in app form. That way, whenever I look at some rando phrase and have no idea what it means, I’m roughly two taps away from getting an answer...
