Add text to your baby pics or LOLCat or photonovel with the classy TitleFx

Not long ago I tested a horrific app for adding text to photos, but I’ve found a much better one, which may even be The One, even though I’m still a strong believer in going easy on the text on … Continue reading

You won’t be so crabby in the morning with Oscar and Erik waking you up: DayDream

It sucks that sometimes you wake up with residual anger (or sadness) because of dreams, and it sucks that you often have no recollection of what made you angry/sad, and it sucks that whoever’s waking up next to you usually … Continue reading

Color is happy and it’s everywhere and you can collect it and use it with Color ViewFinder

If you’re into mobile photography, you’ve probably noticed that it makes you hyper aware of the world around you; all its little faults, but especially the hidden beauty. I found a seedpod in the country one summer and I wanted … Continue reading

A spoonful of live music is a sure-fire cure for old fuddy-duddiness: Timbr

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I fall into a routine and start feeling like I’m my grandmother or something. My life feels like nothing but work eat sleep and it’s seriously lacking in shiny sparkly moments. When this … Continue reading

France is a nice place to visit but you don’t have to live here with Fotopedia France

If you’re a hardcore francophile, you get all gooey at the mere thought of pretty little postcard France, with its castles, and cute little old dudes tossing pétanque balls in village squares, and long-legged, long-haired bombshell brunettes with couture handbags … Continue reading

Let your kid toss a (cartoon) hamster rather than his food: Geared 2

I brought along a little baggie of cheese crackers to my cousin’s wedding because my kid was two and I figured I’d slip him one every time he started to get fidgety. It worked for a bit, but then he … Continue reading

You could always make your honey a naked Heart Collage for V Day

The first thing my husband said when he was helping me test Heart Collage was “You should do a naked one.” Guys… Actually, it had already occurred to me that couples could have a little fun with this app… I … Continue reading

I’m just not quite desperate enough to listen to these Audiobooks right now

I listened to an audiobook once long ago, a cassette of some borderline pulp novel that I’d borrowed from the library for a long road trip up the middle of California. Here in Paris, I don’t have a car (most … Continue reading

Shakespeare, you can send me push notifications any time you want to

Over 20 years ago, there was this sweet, smart, handsome guy I worked with who one day just stopped in front of my desk and started quoting Shakespeare at me. Specifically, that line from Antony and Cleopatra that starts with … Continue reading

Read this book, get this album, you gotta see this movie… Remember them all with Recall

In the last three days alone my mother-in-law raved to me about the book she’s reading and said I would love it (over the phone), a friend told me about four good books (at lunch), and my brother told me … Continue reading

You don’t need ruby slippers (although I’d like a pair) to be somewhere else right NOW

I’m an expat, a foreigner, an immigrant. For as long as I live in France, which may be forever, I’ll be an outsider. Paris is where I live, but San Diego is home, and on days like today, I feel … Continue reading

Printic: shiny, happy, nostalgic prints of your digital pics

I’m old enough to remember when we got a Polaroid camera, when it was the hottest new gadget. The sound it made when it spit the photo out, my dad waving the not-yet-picture around in the air to dry it, … Continue reading
