12 Days: Apple playing Santa!

20121220-033311.jpg

And it’s here… Finally it’s Christmas in five days. Come to think of it, I still haven’t posted about my Annual Holiday Wishlist… Soon, though. But Apple looks like they figured out what you want with the 12 Days App! I dunno though why it starts on December 26 rather than the 13th, but who cares? It still is free apps/music/who knows what from everybody’s no-longer-secret Santa!

So if I were you before the servers get crammed, go download it now. And let’s all have a happy holidays!

For now, they’re giving away Rod Stewart’s music video of Let It Snow! If it’s your thing, then go figure. Y’all know how I feel about Christmas tunes… So yeah. Hahahaha!

And it’s the most wonderful time of the year… You can sing all the songs about Christmas but you ain’t denyin’ that it is the busiest, single most hectic month of the year. Your boss rings your phone every five minutes, your dad, or mom, or both needs a couple of your advice for this gift, and you still need to plan that fucking Christmas/New Year/Reunion party. You don’t wanna end up being the haggard fag on your party that’s why you need an app to aid you in your schedule gone wild.

And my choice of schedule-that-shit app is Living Organized. I got this for free during Black Friday, and it’s been keeping my schedule tame for around two-three weeks already… I’m about to tell you how it works… First, let’s remember that it requires you to make an account online so your schedule is backed up on cloud, and a passcode to make it secure.

The interface is quite simple. You can enter your to-do’s at TASKS, personal data at VAULT, tick off your CHECKLISTS, upload important FILES, record your daily EXPENSES, Aand even create a day-to-day DIARY. A unique function of this app is that you can share content to partners. But it kinda requires payment… ‘Round 99 cents.

In the Tasks tab, you can indicate your task and assign people, or share to partners, complete with date, time, and location. It also syncs with your calendar so Living Organized can alert you.

Same goes with the Vault and Files tab. Every information you add can be shared to partners. Isn’tit convenient.

Same goes with Expenses. You can input your expenses with description, timestamp, and location.

What else? Of course we have the Diary app which helps you keep track of your day in the personal basis!

In summary, here’s how the Living Organized can help you :)

Living Organized is available in the App Store for $9.99, but I got it for free! Heard also, that it’s coming soon to Android! If it weren’t free, I would’ve bought it still just because I can do so much with it…

And there’s no hassle planning that holiday whatnot party. Or any party for that matter. Don’t be the stressed party planner who never enjoys his/her own party! And to think, it’s more than party planning… You can now have a one-stop tool to manage your schedule :)

Of course, even better, ’cause they use cloud backup, it’s even more effective with Globe Mobile Data Services! Click here to know more about their data plans and promos.

Happy Holidays everyone!

A zoo this cute must be kept by a cute zookeeper

Nah, disregard my title. My titles keeps on getting weirder and sometimes bordering on the naught, I know…

But, all I wanna zpazz about is this cute and simple game from the App Store! It was the featured app last week, and I really really am sorry for not sharing immediately when I saw it. Think it’s not free anymore, but there’s no harm in checking again, haha!

I can’t get over how CUTE this game is! Though it will most prolly remind you of the game Bejewelled, which if you don’t know where have you been hiding all these years, seriously?

And more cuteness! When the time is almost up, all the animals in the zoo wiggles (oh, I love seeing that!) but it’s so hard to screencap while playing so yeah, get it and see it for yourself, hehe…Nov 10, 2012, 3:00 AM

Who doesn’t have a knack for 8-bit graphic games here? This could be a great addition to your collection, along with Tiny Tower, Pocket Planes, and Sandbox!

Vintique is App of The Weeque

Haha, idk why I typed that, but it just rhymes and it sounds good. LOL!

20121019-125748.jpg

Ayway, this week, the App Store introduced its App of the Week featuring Vintique. At first glance Vintique looks like your usual Instagram shit – filters, frames, and that kind of stuff you see going on almost every Instagram-inspired app. But Vintique is different. It has more filters, and it has Photoshop-level powers! I think photographers who don't have time to open their laptops to edit their photos can take advantage of this app. It has saturation, temperature, tint, hue, exposure, and gamma levels available for tweaking if you're one OC photographer.

What I don't know is if it's a paid app before it became App of the Week. It wouldn't hurt to download it now, just in case it is though, haha.

You can download Vintique directly on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad here:

Can I just pay via an App?

Now you can! I just downloaded the GCASH App right after I heard there is (much to my surprise!) and I started testing the features. Apparently, GCASH had just relaunched and is now even better and more functional.

So all you need to do is to download the app (it’s free, btw) and launch it. Make sure that you have registered first via sending an SMS to 2882

Enter your MPIN, and you’re good to go with the app. With the GCASH App, you can now send money, pay bills, buy prepaid load, and even donate cash! Converting money, paying bills and buying prepaid load is free of charge.

 

It also has a summarized home view where you can view your transactions for a month, which is really useful especially if a bulk of your transactions are done thru GCASH.

All you need for this App is a smartphone (available in iOS, Android, and BlackBerry) and a Globe SIM.

***

In a world where there’s an app for everything, it’s really great that a local brand can come up with a very functional app. While it has a lot to improve at (like eliminating SMS registration and optimizing list of brands tied up with) it’s a still a  big leap forward for a local brand like Globe.

What do you think of the GCASH App? Can you think of ways to incorporate it in your daily lives? Let me know in the comments section below :)
