With our education system in such disarray I sincerely hope this no tech savvy kids get their hands on this application. A company called MicroLink has developed an app that can easily solve mathematics equation with the click of a button – it takes a photo of the equation and calculated the answer for you.

MicroLink’s newly unveiled PhotoMath for iOS and Windows Phone – with an Android version expected in early 2015 – uses your smartphone’s camera to scan math equations and not only solve them, but show the steps involved. (more…)

City of Cape Town unveils new transport app

CT TCT App

Cape Town is proving, once again, why it is one of the best cities in the world – no offense to Northerners!

The mother of the Mother City, Mayor Patricia de Lille, unveiled a new transport app designed specifically for Cape Town on Monday, which looks to make traveling through Cape Town as easy as finding the mountain.

The Transport for Cape Town app – or TCT for short – is aimed at making traveling, through public or private transport, easy and accessible for both locals and tourists. De Lille billed the app as the “first of its kind in Africa”, but we have seen similar apps in the past year – like this one. Nevertheless, the app still looks great and will definitely (hopefully) improve traveling in and around Cape Town.

The app has two main functions. The first being a ‘journey planning’ feature which essentially enables the user to plan their trip, in detail, using the various feature and information provided by the app.

One of these features include maps of all scheduled public transport services in Cape Town. These include the MyCiti bus service, Golden Arrow bus service, Metrorail, sight seeing busses and even the UCT Jammie Shuttle.

The app will provide users with these service’s individual routes, stops and the stations that they stop at. In addition, it will also recommend to users which mode of transport – be it bus or train – to take. Or even a combination of the two.

It will also tell users where exactly they will find the closest station or stop in accordance to their current location, and will also give them directions on how to get there as well as the distance from where they are – all through GPS, of course.  (more…)

Apple has shown growth over the last couple of years, even amidst fear that the company is doomed without the great and powerful Jobs. Apple has just published its Q4 2014 results, and things have never looked better. (more…)

Ive, on the other hand, focuses on his design philosophies and processes (as you might expect from the Apple exec). Check out both interviews below: (more…)
