    Who Wants To Be A Millionaire HD

    Platform : Android only

    Price : Free

    I was just looking on the Amazon Appstore and they have Who Wants To Be A Millionaire 2012 HD for free today. This is the full previously paid for version. It doesn`t say how long it is free for, so it is worth getting today while free, also it is the HD version and looks great on either a tablet or phone. Downloaded in 30 seconds and it plays superbly with
    the spooky music and timer just like on the box and you can phone a friend or ask the audience.

    Dropbox

    Platform : All platforms

    Price : Free

    Back up all your important files simply and efficiently to the “Cloud”.

    Have been enjoying Dropbox for the last week.

    The 2800 files in “My Documents” are now safely backed up to Dropbox. I can instantly access them
    from iPod, Android, Laptop, PC, Library, Anywhere.

    Suddenly I realise that this is the way to go. I do not have to worry about losing or damaging
    my computer. No longer is it an issue how many Gb of storage on the Apple or Android device.

    This is the way forward.

    Excellent Question and right on the point.

    Dropbox are a commercial organisation and want you to have the paid
    for versions that give you hundreds of Gigabytes of space.

    The Free allowance is 2 Gb, with options to easily gain more free space up to 32 Gb.

    I invited a few friends, liked them on Facebook and now have 6 Gb.

    This is enough for me to upload 2800 documents and over 20,000 pictures and still have 2Gb free.

    All I will ever need.

    AMG very cleverly raises the thorny subject of Cloudy Music.

    As she points out music files are larger and and any decent music buff will have by now
    a large collection of their fave tunes.

    The three large players in this field are :-

    iCloud from our good and wealthy friends at Apple. This gives you 5Gb free to store your music,
    apps and videos that you have bought from Apple. You do though have to download to your IOS device to play them.

    Amazon Cloud Player AKA Amazon MP3 player is an Android App that stores all your music that you have
    bought on Amazon and delightfully you can play it direct from the player on your computer or android device.
    No need to download files or take up storage space. For free you can upload a paltry 250 of your own songs.

    Google Play Music is an android App that lets you listen to your music collection anywhere. All your
    Google purchases are stored online and synced and accessed from most of your devices. You can
    add 20,000 more songs from your computer for free and even share with friends on Google plus.

    Price : Free

    Platform : IOS and Android

    I thought this was a bog standard graphics application but after an intoxicating session with AMG
    at our local hostelry I am informed that this is the ultimate photo sharing and creative graphics manipulation
    tool. Does all sorts of stuff I do not even begin to understand.

    Instantly syncs to all your social media applications and you can interact with everyone and his uncle.

    WooHoo – I have downloaded it and will give it a test drive this weekend. Some of the critical reviews are scathing about the advert intrusion, the lists look interesting there are a couple of comedy movies I might try.

    Will report back [once the battery has died nd I cannot be distracted further, lol]

    But will she brave the scandalous debauchery of “Kentucky Fried Movie”?…..they definitely did not make any
    more movies like that.

    The adverts are not as bad as some of these Apps.

    Re: The Appy Corner…..

    Has tune-in radio been mentioned ? Allows you to listen to numerous commercial radio stations from Europe definitely, maybe even Worldwide. Bought the Photon browser which enables you to watch flash content on the ipad. Viber, since the demise (supposedly) of msn, Kristel & I had to look for another cam programme so we could talk & viber fits the bill & now you can use it on pc & phone. I’ve found a work around though on msn & it’s still working if you know how ;)

    Re: The Appy Corner…..

    I had a plan this morning to print some labels so that when my carer got in I could ask her to pop out and post some things I’ve sold on eBay. I remembered to ask for the laptop so that when I’d finished my tea I could open it up and get started. I hadn’t noticed that the laptop was upside down (back and front of cover look the same. It is too heavy for me to turn over so there I sat drumming my fingers and staring out the window… Wouldn’t it be good if I could create documents on my phone and print them!!

    What do you know??

    I can :yes:

    App Store = Documents app

    It’s very basic stuff but perfect for what I needed to do and looking over AT&T printer that is iPhone compatible I can see it has come out ok!

    This is very good to hear.

    A person with problems caused by their disability coming up with a workable solution using
    the rapidly expanding range of technological innovations that are arriving fast. Many of them
    are accessible to us through these wonderful Apps that we are discussing.

    Well Done Sarah.

    Airplay printers, bluetooth headsets, wireless speakers, wireless lock technology, digital streamported music,
    voice recognition and control.

    Finally things are all moving in our direction.

    I.M.D.B.

    The absolutely marvelous “Internet Movie Database”.

    Platform : Android and IOS

    Price : Free

    This is a recommendation from AMG who remained sensible in the Hub Pub yesterday while
    the rest of us were singing rude songs and throwing up in ashtrays.

    IMDB is the ultimate guide to Film and Television. It has every conceivable fact and detail that you
    could ever want on any movie or TV programme. I always have it open as I watch to check up
    on cast lists, plot scenarios, series details, timings, background information. You can
    immediately check each and every actor and everything they have ever appeared in, even chat
    shows appearances.

    This is GOOD !
