Mom develops app so son can’t ignore her text messages

Published by on Aug 21st, 2014, 3 Comments

Ignore No More

Teenagers; they are constantly in their own world and are only interested in texting their friends – definitely not their parents.

And for one Texas mom this was not going to fly. She got so fed up with her teenage son not replying to her text messages or phone calls, that she decided to fight fire with fire – by developing an app that would force him to reply.

Ignore No More is an app that allows parents to block their kids’ phones remotely, even when they are not in the house.

The app essentially disables the child’s phone – that is until he or she decides to reply to mom or dad. It blocks them from texting or calling anyone else (or even use the internet) except contacts listed on an emergency number list or emergency responders like the police or paramedics.

To unblock their phone, they will be forced to call their parents to receive a passcode to disable the block.  (more…)

LokLok Review: No more boring lock screens

Published by on Aug 20th, 2014, No Comments

Imagine having a shared lock screen with friends where you can draw on your lock screen and it shows up on theirs. LokLok is a new application that does just that. We are all so used to the social media  apps out there like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram but LokLok is a fresh a addition to communicating with close friends and loved ones.

The concept of it is, you connect and add friends found on Facebook or via their Email address, and once connected with each other you now share a lock screen where you can leave messages, drawings and even photos.

Playing something like a platformer on a PC can be quite cumbersome with a keyboard and mouse, and Ideum believe they have the answer. It has created an Android app called GestureWorks Gameplay which is used as a virtual controller, letting you use your phone or tablet to steer the action instead of either a real gamepad or on-screen buttons.

Huawei Ascend P7 Review: Elegantly designed and surprisingly fun

Mention Huawei in public and you will not get the impression that people are aware that Huawei is, in fact, the third largest smartphone maker in the world. What is more likely to occur is a brief (and sometimes heated) discussion on how exactly to pronounce Huawei. If you are a company hoping to enter the mainstream mobile market, this is generally bad news.

Sensing this apprehension, Huawei have made a concerted effort to force themselves onto the global public’s consciousness, even making this laboured and perfectly ridiculous advert in Times Square to educate New Yorkers on the correct pronunciation of Huawei (It’s Wah-Way for those who want to win an argument). The fact that this video has scored more than 300,000 views suggests that even people outside China are starting to take Huawei seriously. (more…)

360-best-buy

Today’s news are all about wearables, strangely enough. We are expecting the official Moto 360 launch on September 4th, and many questions were being asked about the pricing of this device.

Many believed it would have to cost much more than the recently released Android Wear smartwatches, but that seems not to be the case. If the leak from Best Buy is to be believed, the Moto 360’s price will be very much in line with that of its competitors. (more…)

LG G Watch 2 launching already?

LG-G-Watch-Android

It has only been a couple of months since the LG G Watch debuted at Google I/O, but it seems LG already have plans to release a successor. Rumours are suggesting that the company could introduce a G Watch 2 at IFA next month.

If I had paid hard-earned money to buy a G Watch only to find out that a new one is dropping a couple of months later I would certainly be peeved (to say the least). Why would LG have such a short turnaround time between wearables? It might be because of the short amounts of time between Samsung releasing their various wearables. (more…)
