Get First-Hand Business Insight with Best Manager Secrets

Whether you’ve just obtained a new job or are a seasoned pro, advice from someone who has walked the same road can often be a comfort.  Hearing about their experiences can often teach you secondhand lessons that will help you make better decisions in your own position.

With Best Manager Secrets by Umbrella Business Development Ltd, users in the managerial field will find a book-like guide of advice, ranging from logical topics such as listening and sharing, to more business related topics such as marketing and promotion. While the guide offers a simple tone written in the most basic of styles, the general content of Best Manager Secrets can be considered logical and predictable, making one realize that most of what they’ve read could very well have been knowledge obtained for free through personal experience or the tales of a co-worker, friend or relative.

Though the author, Ziv, as he calls himself, could have used an editor to polish up some sentence structure and typo faux pas, he certainly provides a lengthy account of what he has learned as a manager.  One can always learn something from the first-hand experience of another in the same profession.  However, users should also take such advice with caution as no two scenarios are the same.  What Ziv may suggest only serves as guidance, as with any advice.  In the end, Best Manager Secrets simply promises to provide users with a general sense of how they may approach their job and suggest key skills that have been known to prove worthwhile.

Users who wish to get an idea of what Best Manager Secrets offers may choose to try the free version, Manager Secrets, first.  This version allows users access the first three chapters, giving them a taste that will hopefully entice them to buy the full version, which can indeed be purchased within the free application itself.

Best Manager Secrets [iTunes Link] requires iPhone OS 3.1.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

Road Hog Minimizes Road Rage with Addictive Nature

Price: $.99    Score: 9/10    By A. Papachristosbadge appstore sm Road Hog Minimizes Road Rage with Addictive Nature

Driving on an actual road, whether for work or for play, can prove to be quite an annoyance.  People now have to beware of the dozens of oblivious drivers who dart out in front of them sans blinker, as opposed to the occasional squirrel or groundhog.  However, with Road Hog by one1eleven, users can reclaim the road as they dodge walls and road signs, racking up points and proving they are the true king of the road (according to the worldwide leaderboard, at least).

When you begin, you will find a screen that explains all the necessary controls and markings on the screen.  Users will find the Pause button in the upper left corner, while their score and lives are visible in the upper right corner.  To control the car itself, simply tap and drag the vehicle to move.  Use your second hand to tap the car whenever you need to jump.  If you wish to access this information again at any time, visit the Tutorial listed on the main page.

Once you reach the main screen, users will find a simple yet useful main menu, including a Facebook connect button at the top of the screen that does just that, which allows you to share your latest scores with all of your friends.  Before you begin, head down to Settings, where you can choose you car’s color (red, yellow, green, blue, or pink), as well as adjust the volume of the music and sounds throughout the game.  As you play, users can monitor their score in comparison to Road Hog’s world leaderboard.  Unfortunately, no matter how many times I played, my scores never appeared on the ‘Me’ scoreboard, though Road Hog does also promise to track your personal scores as well.

The basic idea is to drive, avoiding the myriad obstacles in your way, while also collecting as many stars as you can to increase your score.  Tap with your other hand to jump, or, when you acquire a bonus button, tap using your other hand to trigger the action when necessary.  Faced with oil slicks, open manholes, shifting road signs and brick walls that will cause your car to explode, users face the most dangerous roadway of their lives.  However, the extremely smooth tap and drag controls make navigating Road Hog so enjoyable that I have come to completely agree with the fact that this game may become truly addictive. And considering Road Hog induces much less rage than the actual road, it’s a shame one can’t just tap and drag themselves to work each morning.

Road Hog [iTunes Link] requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Schedule Conference Calls Fast with Powwownow

Price: FREE     Score: 10/10     By M. Schustermanbadge appstore sm Schedule Conference Calls Fast with Powwownow

Here’s the thing about holding a conference call on your iPhone; it’s supposed to be easy and convenient. If not, you’d spend the time setting up your headset and downloading the correct software on your desktop instead. So when I see conferencing apps that make you jump through a bunch of hoops just to hold a quick phone meetings, I think, “Why bother?”

Developed by Powwownow, the application Powwownow got it right. Within minutes of downloading this app – which, it’s worth pointing out, is free – I’d added a contact, scheduled a conference call, and successfully held a short chat through the app.

The first time you open the app, you’ll have to register, which requires entering your email address and then verifying in your email account. Along the bottom, you can navigate between your scheduled conferences, your settings, and “Join Call,” which allows you to join scheduled calls or manually enter a number for a call.

Scheduling a conference and inviting others is done on one screen; enter a title, choose a date and type, add a description and choose the participants (from your Powwownow contacts, iPhone contacts, or a manually-entered contact).

The app will generate a PIN number, which is automatically stored under “Details” in your conference information. (Don’t forget to glance at it once you start the call, as you can’t go back to that screen and look once you’ve dialed in.)

Everything about this app was quick. It’s extremely simple to navigate, registration was fast, and starting the conference was a piece of cake. I can honestly see workers who are truly on the go using Powwownow to hold a short but important five minute conference while standing in line for a latte. If you’re looking for a conference call app, the price is right on this one – I’d recommend checking it out.

Powwownow [iTunes link] requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
