A couple years ago, unlike what seemed to be everyone else, I didn’t have a smart phone. I did have an iPod touch. One of the most convenient apps I had was a free texting app because if my outdated dinosaur of a phone died on me, I still had ways to communicate with friends. I used Textfree with voice, but I recently downloaded TextNow to use with my iPad. In my opinion, it is a much more user friendly app. With TextNow, there are no hidden charges, or limits on the number of free texts you can send, whereas with Textfree, you must earn your texts by sifting through sponsors’ promotional material. You can opt to pay for a text free version of TextNow, but that is entirely optional.
This app is the mobile equivilent of Woot.com. For those of you who have never heard of Woot, it is a daily deal website that features a daily gadget at a serious discout. There is also Shirt Woot, which features a unique shirt design daily. And for the 21+ mobile users, you can even buy wine—mostly in bulk— using Wine Woot. This is especially a great site to find gifts on (cough, cough Mother’s Day).
While I’m not a huge history geek, I even think this app is pretty cool. National Geographic has put together a specialty app which compiles a visual timeline of the building process of the titanic. Using the scrubber at the bottom of your screen, you can literally watch as Titanic is assembled. Stop along different points along the timeline to learn about different features of the ship and other stories. It also goes past the basic mechanics of the ship to also give you background on the stakeholders including the architect and White Star.
