Users will be able to schedule everything, any way they want with the new InstantNote+ app from Aquilonis

With today’s busy pace of life more and more people are looking for gadgets, devices and iPhone apps that will do all their planning for them, aiding them in living more productive lives. A few decades ago the closest people could get to this was with a filofax. However, over recent years technology has come a long way with a range of devices that make it possible to organize your everyday life. Short of cooking your dinner and cleaning your home, these devices are able to do many things to help with your daily life!

One such device is the iPhone which comes with a range of apps that can help make life more convenient. InstantNote+ is one of these apps, offering a wide selection of scheduling tools that makes day-to-day tasks quite a bit easier.

Usability Factor

As productivity apps are concerned the InstantNote+ app is a brilliant scheduling tool that lets you essentially plan out your entire day, down to finest detail.

The initial impression of this app slightly overwhelming. When opening this iPhone app you are hit by a main screen filled with rows of times at intervals of 15 minutes and a row of buttons at the bottom of the screen that appear to allow you to apply a variety of settings to the times on the main screen. The app does provide an information button that explains how the app works, but it still takes a while to get used to setting up the schedules.

InstantNote+ is not simply a one function wonder. Rather, it aids you in scheduling a gamut of tasks including text reminders, voice reminders, a call scheduler, SMS scheduler, alarms, and email schedulers.  By having access to all of these features, and maintaining them within one simple to use app, you will find that your tasks will be streamlined, and thus more easily manageable.

Ah, the days of old. I often hear the tales my parents weave of unlocked doors and windows, car keys left in the visor, personal belongings shared, with no question that they would rightfully be returned in due course. Fast forward to 2011 <gulp> … let’s just say I check my locks twice before turning in.

BuddyGuard to the Rescue

It is no surprise that personal protection is a large and looming concern, but can an iPhone app really help? BuddyGuard says yes! Whether you are using an ATM, or meeting the cute guy who has been winking at you on the personal sites, having BuddyGuard on and activated can be quite effective.

An iPhone App + Ingenuity = Priceless Vision For the Blind

LookTel Money Reader - IPPLEX

 

Price: $1.99
Rating:

iPhone apps have been known to provide countless hours of gaming fun, simplification of life via utilities, a higher level of social connectivity, and yes, they even allow us to mimic the sounds of farts – whether we want to or not. However, iPhone apps can offer us much more than fun and games; now they can even bring sight to the blind, metaphorically.

Making a simple purchase and paying in cash may seem par for the course for you and I, however, for the millions who are blind, identifying the value on dollar bills can be a daunting task.  In fact, in other countries, the currency is printed or manufactured in a variety of shapes, helping to discern the value simply by size. However, this is not the case for those who live with blindness in America. Hence, a new iPhone app called Looktel aims to resolve this difficult matter by reading the value of each dollar via the iPhone camera and “speaking” the amount out loud.
