Check Out “If This Then That” to Harness the Power of Your Mobile Device!

IFTT

A great free app that let’s you set up if this, then that actions with a simple to use interface.  It also provides “recipes” of “if this, then that” actions that others have created, or come with the app.

For example, you can create a recipe that checks the weather each day for rain and, if true, sends you a text message that you should take an umbrella to work.

Darn cool and available on the Apple store.

Carousel from Dropbox

Carousel

If you are a Dropbox user, Carousel will help you reclaim space on your device. The app will also make it easier to browse through your older photos with the new Flashback feature.

Carousel will allow you to free space on your device when it’s running low by removing photos and videos from your device that are already stored in Dropbox.  Tap the app’s notification that warns you about low space, and you’ll be taken to a page that shows you how much space can be regained by deleting photos and videos.  Tap the button to free up space.  This feature will also be available through the app’s settings.

An App that Measures?!

There’s an app for that and it’s free on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

EasyMeasure allows you to measure anything from small items to buildings and more. Just point your mobile device’s camera at the object and the app will calculate the size.

Pretty cool if you need to determine the size of something, but don’t have a tape measure with you, or the item is much bigger than something you could measure on your own.

A Cool App that Helps Identify Points of Interest!

Tagwhat

When you’re traveling, or just in an unfamiliar place and needed to know what a particular building was, a landmark,…?  Then try out this cool app!

Start the app and enable the camera.  Aim the camera at a point of interest, business, whatever.  The app will compare this to information in it’s data base and tell you about it!

It will also provide information on places near your location.

Very handy when traveling to places you’ve never been before.  And, maybe, even places you have been before and didn’t know the details of your surroundings!

Available for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Hate the Wait When Calling Customer Service?!

The team at AppTechnique found a great app for iOS and Android that can take the pain out of the wait when contacting customer service.

When you call customer service, FastCustomer waits on hold.  When they pick up, FastCustomer lets you know!

How’s that for taking the hassle out of the wait!  Available free on the Apple App Store and on Google Play.
