There’s an App for that

A pretty common phrase… one that we’ve heard a lot – “there’s an app for that!”. And when you look at the sheer number of apps, you realize that there must really be an app for that. Now, it makes no difference if you’re on an iOS or Android device.  In fact, let’s include Blackberry, …

iOS 7 – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (or maybe not so pretty)

Unlike a lot of bloggers, I didn’t have the opportunity to use iOS 7 until the day it was released.  And because of that, I decided to wait a couple of days before I wrote anything about it.  Had I sat down an hour after I put it on my phone, this perspective most likely …
