I defy you to guess what kind of music I want to listen to when I feel sexy, Stereomood!

Just not possible! Seriously. Because for any woman it might be princess sexy or dominatrix sexy or anything in between, and they all have different soundtracks. Right? Plus, it looks like a bunch of 25-year-old guys (mostly) put together the … Continue reading

Really, don’t add text to your photos (tacky tacky tacky), but if you must, there’s Phonto

I had no choice. Well, you always have a choice. But anyway. The only reason I went looking for an app that would add text to pictures was to publish a final pic on Instagram to tell people I’d moved … Continue reading

If you’re still seeking an Instagram alternative, eyeball EyeEm

As an avowed fauxto sharing hussy, I’ve been closely following the recent news on Instagram. Pam and I even held an impromptu confab this past Saturday. The thrill is gone, but I’m not quite sure that I’m ready to leave my … Continue reading

Pictarine, like nectarine, because staying connected has suddenly become sweeter

I met Guillaume a couple of weeks ago at a party for LeWeb. (If you click that link, you’ll see how cute he is.) Oh, but keep reading, here, if you want to know why he’s a genius. Ladies, face it … Continue reading

Yes, Virginia, the world really DOES need another photo app: Starmatic

I am one of those Instagram (IG) people (although with only three food pics out of 642, I’m not one of those Instagram people). But a little part of me died the day Facebook bought IG. I knew that little by … Continue reading

Little Photo filters the wow factor into mobile snapshots

Everything’s big in Boldomatic

TuneIn to the world’s radio stations
