MakeUp

Granted, I don't use makeup. However, I can certainly appreciate what women must go through in trying different products or looks. I also have an appreciation for facial recognition software and that's what MakeUp uses. If you think about it, when you bring a photo into this app it has to figure out where your different features are to be able to apply the makeup in the right places.

Start with an existing photo, the built-in model photo or take one with your iPhone camera. Once you have the photo up you can either apply makeup to the eyes, skin or lips.

Ping!

Text Messaging is big business for the wireless carriers. This means that you either pay for a plan and stay within the limit (AT&T base plan 200 messages per month) or you go with an unlimited plan and of course pay more per month.  Ping is an iPhone/iPod touch app that allows you to text message other iPhone/iPod touch users over the internet via your 3G, EDGE or WiFi connection with no monthly fees!

Ping gives you the look and feel of a standard Text Messaging app. Setup was pretty straight forward and within minutes I was sending and receiving Pings. One of the most important aspects of an app like this is Push Notifications. Luckily Ping! has it implemented well.

Use your iPhone/iPod touch with your Tavo gloves

Hey, it's winter here and the average this week has been about 35°F. So needless to say I'm wearing my gloves a lot. The problem with gloves is that you usually have to take them off in order to use devices with a touch screen such as your iPhone or iPod touch. My friend Linda was showing me some gloves that she picked up that had special tips on the end of the index finger and thumb to allow you to make proper contact with a touch screen.

So needless to say I went in search for a pair of my very own. I had no luck finding any locally and didn't want to spend a lot of time fighting the crowds doing their holiday shopping. So I turned to online sources and found a pair of Tavo gloves. They arrived and I started using them immediately. 

 

How well do they work?

They do work as advertised. I was able to use my iPhone with minimal effort with the gloves on. I was even able to tap some of the smaller icons such as the Mail trash can.

Happy Holidays!

 

 

Monopoly

I used to play Monopoly quite a bit as a kid. I loved the board game and the fun I had with friends. I haven't played the board game in years. However, when I saw that Electronic Arts had brought this classic out as an iPhone/iPod touch game I had to give it a try. The user interface for this game is just too good to describe in words. So instead check out this video review:

Play the computer or play up to 3 other humans

Monopoly is one of those games that allows you to combine strategy and pure luck to crush your competition. The fact that you can mix both computer (AI) players and friends/family members over Bluetooth or WiFi connections is even better.
