 Foxcard: Business Card Scan and Digitizer iPhone App

Reviewed by Philip Chan

Foxcard pro, from MINGFEI LIU, is a very useful app for any business person who has to keep track of the many business cards that you receive in your day-to-day dealings with customers, suppliers, associates, and the like.

It allows you to digitize your business cards. Simply boot the app up, then tap the Camera icon. You’ll be taken to a screen where you can snap a photo of the business card.

When using Foxcard you will need to use the best lighting to get the best results. Take the photo, then the app will scan in the details (nice little animation here) and show you the final digitized contact. I found this process worked about 75% of the time, with traditional business cards working the best (sorry to all those newfangled-eye catching ones, they don’t seem to scan in as well!).

Then, you can add additional details to the contact, of correct errors in the scanning process. Next, you can import it to your contacts, contact them through email using the built in tab, or even instant message them, if you have their phone number on the card.

Each card you scan will also save the original card to your app as well for original reference. There is also multi-language support (8 or so) with the app.

All in all, I found the scanner worked fairly well but not perfectly, especially with non-traditional business card formats.

Foxcard looks sharp on the iPhone. The graphics are polished and the layout very professional. It’s really quite easy to scroll through the app and add contacts using the photo button. You can also import existing photos from your Gallery into the app and scan them in as well.

The layout allows for even first time users to start snapping and scanning business cards right away.

Foxcard offers a neat service, but at a fairly steep price ($6.99). Now, there is a free “Lite” version available, which I would recommend to first-time users hesitant to make a relatively big purchase for this app.

Foxcard pro is a solid business app. I like it and I like its multiple features; but honestly there are many apps doing the same thing and often for a much more affordable price. So, it was a little disappointing to see the high price for this business card scanner app.

Functionally speaking, it is a solid business card scanner app that quickly allows you to digitize your contacts onto your iOS device.

Reviewed by Adam Itkoff

If you’re like me, you first heard of Twitter in the summer of 2010. The little bird had been floating around since 2006, but about four years into the company launch, this thing really started to take off.

Artists and musicians began live tweeting their performance pieces and shows, and suddenly if you didn’t have an @ in front of your name, you were behind the ball.

Now, tweetary (tweetary for iPad and tweetary for iPhone) from Tappnology (Pty) Ltd, has come out of the gate, and is picking up steam as a must-have full twitter client. This app allows you to archive and annotate important tweets, organize tweets into collections, manage separate accounts and access real-time analytics.

With a hotbed of comprehensive features, tweetary carves out a place as a one stop shop for Twitter fanatics across the globe.

The latest version of this app has undergone a comprehensive aesthetic overhaul for iOS 7, and is designed with speed and accessibility in mind.

It’s designed for iPhone and iPad, and comes with a pack of 6 separate info-graphics that allow you to gain invaluable insight on how to utilize Twitters, and what your favorite “tweeters” might be doing to leverage their 140 characters to the best of their ability.

It’s easy to hop between accounts, sync to iCloud, access long forgotten archived tweets, and crunch a plethora of miscellaneous data provided by the app.

If you’ve got a Social Media team working for your company, but they have yet to check out tweetary, you’ll want to immediately spring for this app.

It leaves no stone unturned, and generally prides itself on being your source for in-depth Twitter analysis.

With a recent IPO and steadily increasing user-base, tweetary provides the easiest way to maximize your use of Twitter and fully leverage what the platform can offer.

The only asterisk here, is that the app isn’t necessary for the majority of Twitter users. Beginning Twitter users shouldn’t need more than their 140 characters and a few re-tweets; something as comprehensive as this app might just downright confuse them.

However, for those of you who are looking to boost your account and really see the inner-workings of this miraculous app, tweetary is pretty much a must-have.

The price tag is substantiated through the clean interface, accessibility, simple importation of accounts, and variety of analytic uses. If you rarely, “tweet”, you can leave this one behind.

But if you can’t get enough and 140 characters hardly contains you, tweetary will let you tweet and soar to new heights.

weather traveler PRO, from Sena Lee, is a cool way to check out the weather all around the world. This handy app not only allows you to check the forecast, but browse photos, too!

As a self-proclaimed weather fanatic, I always enjoy seeing what’s new in the weather category on the App Store. Weather Traveler PRO is a fascinating combination of useful weather information coupled with location-based photos.

This makes for a very unique weather experience, as it’s meant to help you feel like you’re there. The background photos even match the time of day and current weather of the location.

In terms of information, weather data is supplied by Wunderground.com. Known as a trusted source for weather, this is a great thing about Weather Traveler PRO because this means you’re getting reliable weather information and forecasts.

From wind speed and humidity to UV indexes, pretty much everything you need to know about the day ahead is conveniently located on the main screen of the app.

The only thing I didn’t like about Weather Traveler PRO is the small font for weather data. To me it feels like the app focuses more on the photos than the weather, and it’s pretty hard to read and interact with weather data. Luckily this is an easy fix, though. That or creating a separate screen for full-screen weather info would work, as well.

Weather Traveler PRO comes with too many features to individually list, but there are a few which are noteworthy. First, the app has a separate photo browser, adequately named “Around the World”.

Users can browse all of the available photos in the Weather Traveler PRO database. Photos can even be downloaded, which is definitely a neat feature.

The only weather feature I think Weather Traveler PRO is missing is the ability to push storm warnings and other severe weather alerts to users. Weather alerts would only pertain to the location that the user has marked as their home city. This would be a fantastic safety feature, and would easily allow Weather Traveler PRO to replace major weather apps if users prefer it over them.

Weather Traveler PRO is available to download from the App Store for $1.99 and is designed for iPhone. Overall, if you love browsing photos and find yourself checking weather all around the world at your favorite destinations, this is a must-have app.

Even when you’re not looking at the forecast, it’s fun to browse the photo database and travel the world from the comfort of your phone.

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

BigTweets by AppsTizers4U enables users to post tweets over the normal 140 character limit on Twitter. Available for $0.99 through the iTunes Store, this app converts text into images in order to get around the Twitter word count regulations.

Features: star Make Long Posts with BigTweetsstar Make Long Posts with BigTweetsstar Make Long Posts with BigTweetsstar Make Long Posts with BigTweetsemptystar Make Long Posts with BigTweets

Just like its name suggests, BigTweets is an app that lets users post “big” (long) tweets. The regular 140 character limit that regulates the length of a single post on Twitter is done away with when using this app because Big Tweets converts text files into images which can then be easily posted onto Twitter without any restriction.

Regular 140-character tweets can also easily be generated through this app as well. This way, users can utilize just one app to create all of their tweets, as opposed to having to go between the regular Twitter app and BigTweets.

However, users still must have the regular Twitter app installed on their chosen iOS devices, and, of course, you still have to have an active Twitter account in order for BigTweets to run and to post anything.

Overall, I found the ease of generating an extra long tweet through this app to be just as simple and easy as possible. While it is going to be obvious to all of you Twitter followers that you are successfully navigating around the regular Twitter character count limit, I suppose that if you’re using BigTweets in the first place you’re also probably not too concerned about your followers receiving verbose posts from you.

The layout of BigTweets is simple to navigate, making this app extremely easy to use overall. Everything is clearly marked, and there is no hassle with getting the app to link directly to your Twitter account (provided you already have the general Twitter app installed on your chosen iOS device.)

Fonts are easily readable on screens of all sizes. While the features of BigTweets are all perfectly functional, the appearance of the app could probably use a makeover. The choice to use primary colors as the different background screens within the app is less than aesthetically impressive.

So, while the app actually operates quite well, the backgrounds tend to make the app look a bit clunky overall . Basically, the functionality of this app is definitely not matched up by the appearance of it at all.

BigTweets currently is $0.99 through the iTunes Store. Although a somewhat minimal fee, the overall “value” of this app could probably be improved. Anyone who is attracted by the aesthetics of an app will certainly find this one lacking, and anyone who appreciates the forced laconic expressions on Twitter may not appreciate what BigTweets has to offer.

Still, the bottom line is that those who want to post more than 140 characters in one tweet will make good use of this app and will no doubt find the $0.99 price tag to be perfectly reasonable.

Flipstream – Reciprocal, Ephemeral & Secure Private Messaging

Reviewed by Adam Itkoff

Snapchat came onto the scene and totally re-invented the wheel when it comes to methods of communicating between iPhones and mobile devices. By erasing sent and received messages after 10 seconds or less, the app revolutionized chatting and added a surreptitious element to online world of messaging.

Now, in the same vein of Snapchat, Flipstream, from Flipback Social Networking, has come into the App marketplace in full swing. This amazing app allows you to share photos with friends, and cloak the photos with a distortion effect, until you receive one in return.

This means that you can capture your girlfriend’s attention with a vibrant snap, but keep this snap hidden until you’ve received yours. It’s this emphasis on reciprocity, or “reciprocal messaging”, that allows Flipstream to capitalize on a niche’s niche, and shows some major conceptual and developmental capability at the same time.

There’s a viral feel to this entire app, which encourages you to “Snap, Cloak, Swap!” and puts its own spin on the art of communication.

Features: star Flipstream Turns Snapchat Upside Down star Flipstream Turns Snapchat Upside Down star Flipstream Turns Snapchat Upside Down star Flipstream Turns Snapchat Upside Down star Flipstream Turns Snapchat Upside Down

Signing up for this app only requires your phone number and then it will allow you to import your contact list and message your friends to get started quickly enough.

Input your phone number, confirm your verification code, and then begin to message your friends distorted images to capture their interest. The more friends you add, the more filters you’ll be able to use.

With frequent updates and a genuine desire to spice up the App world, Flipstream is definitely an interesting addition to your communication rotation and we think it deserves a permanent spot on the home screen.

The app earns its high accolades and has a light and entertaining feel that’s bound to attract scores of users.

The fact is, Snapchat made International headlines when it rejected Facebook’s $3 billion offer. That left the door wide open for spin offs that could at least hit a valuation of a few million if they can capitalize on even a segment of Snapchat’s market. Flipstream is this very attempt, to take a successful formula, dye it a new color, and make the big-time. And who is to say they won’t?

This app has a lot going for it; stellar functionality, a fun theme, and a huge market all lead to an optimistic review for Flipstream. You won’t spend cold cash downloading, and can get extra kicks by doing so. With an International rollout coming next month, it’s only a matter of time until this one blows up.
