After losing 50 lbs in 3 months, this is the iPhone app that will help keep me on track

Ex-Googlers launch exciting new iPhone app that could change the way you read the news

Ex-Googlers launch exciting new iPhone app that could change the way you read the news

A pair of ex-Googlers is bringing another player to the news app space today with their launch of Spotter, an app that crawls hundreds of news sites to try to bring users information that matters to them and could help their careers.

The app, which launches first for the iPhone and iPad, and is headed to the Web and Android soon, was developed by Jon Emerson and Tom Charytoniuk, both of whom worked on various aspects of the Google+ experience, among other things, while they were with the search giant.

They built Spotter, they explained, on the premise that the most relevant articles to a user can come from anywhere – from Medium posts to The New York Times and everything in between. And rather than jump into different streams or manually pick content creators to follow, their goal is for Spotter itself to do the heavy lifting of picking and choosing.  More →

Google Tips Tricks

5 great Google tricks you’ll wonder how you ever lived without

5 great Google tricks you’ll wonder how you ever lived without

If there is one single app that we would miss most if it ever vanished, there is no question that it would be the Google app on either Android or the iPhone. Beyond being a portal into the amazing world of Google Now on both platforms, it provides fast and easy access to a Google search box, which you can either type in to perform a search or use voice dictation.

But as many people know, Google search is about much more than just hunting down answers to your questions or finding the right webpage to explain how something works. Google can perform all sorts of functions for you — in fact, Google can probably replace more apps and services than you realize.

Here are five great Google tricks you can use on your smartphone, tablet or computer, and you might not know how you ever lived without them. More →

Meet Duet, the charging dock Apple Watch owners are going to love

The Apple Watch is one of the best smartwatches you can buy, but it’s far from being perfect. The main problem with it for many users is its battery life. You’ll need to recharge the device nearly on a daily basis, even though the Watch can beat Apple’s own usage estimates. That means Apple Watch owners now have to worry about charging two devices and packing two different cables when traveling. More →
