Budget, Calculate and Track With Notes.xls Tiny Spreadsheet

Total Score:  28.5


Notes.xls logo
Notes.xls tiny spreadsheet is an extremely useful app – especially if you are an excel fan – as I am. I find this app easier to use on the iPhone than Apple’s Number app or Microsoft Excel. It is definitely for use with only two-column sheets, but that leaves a lot of functionality.

This app, Glasses.com, is the perfect companion to help you shop for frames for your lenses.   I don’t know about you, but when I am standing in a store I would prefer to shop for frames with my glasses on!  This app allows you to see how frames look on your face and order them through the app.  With the information provided, you could, of course, find a local store, go try them on and then arrange for your purchase through them.  I happen to be in the market for new frames, so this app came along at a perfect time.

Taskboard – Simple Lists and Visual Worklow

Total Score:  29.5

I have a lot of tasks on my plate.  I continue to search for a simple way to keep track of them.  About a year ago someone told me to write my tasks on index cards and prioritize them by color.  I liked the method, but I couldn’t really keep it up because I needed to see all the tasks at once.  This app, Taskboard – Simple Lists and Visual Workflow is just what I needed.  I love the ability to see an overview of what is outstanding and the ease of moving the tasks around.  I think you will too.     Continue reading “Taskboard – Simple Lists and Visual Worklow”

Add Fun to Your Photos With Halftone

Total Score:  29.5

Photography is not my forte so I have not focused on photo enhancing apps. However, I discovered Halftone and think it has the right balance of ease of use and photo sharing that makes it interesting to me.

Instagram – Social Media Through Photos

Total Score:  27.5

Instagram is an enormously popular app.  It has over 200 million users.  I’m a little late to the party here, but decided I would be remiss if I didn’t review it as well.  I’m not of the “take a picture of my buddies at a party” generation, but I do think Instagram offers a lot of potential for the casual user.  You could create an account account for just your family or share your hobby with others (more on this below).  Continue reading “Instagram – Social Media Through Photos”
