Like To Unlock: How To Build A Basic Facebook Fan Gate Without Paying For Hosting

One incredibly effective use of a Facebook hosted brand page is to incentivise people to like the page by creating some secret members-only content; commonly referred to as a “fan gate”. Facebook has also partnered with Heroku – a cloud hosting company – which means you can create your own basic Facebook app, and host it for free, on a secure server. Read on as I make a basic Facebook fan-gate page tab app, hosted for free, on Heroku.

Unraveling The Mystery Of The Missing Friend Updates On Facebook

There are a lot of things about Facebook that annoy people – not just the annoying things that people post. In my case, I got really frustrated at the beginning when there were certain friends that I realized I was missing updates from. These were really good friends, and I was interested in just about every single thing they posted.

8 Unmissable Widgets For All Android Versions (Even If Your Phone Is Old)

Android 4.0 has been out for some time now yet, according to usage studies, a large number of devices still run version 2.x. This can make buying widget apps frustrating. The latest and greatest may be attractive and filled with features, yet they also may not run on your phone. Let’s take a moment, then, to instead focus on Android widget apps that have been around for years and will work with version 2.1 or newer.

Gamer Droid: Video Game Themed Wallpapers For Android

I love video games! You love video games! The difference between you and I is that you probably actually play with them while I admire them from afar. Fact is, I’m still playing Icewind Dale. But that’s not the point. The point is I can still enjoy the presence of my favourite video games in new and exciting ways on my Samsung Android phone. And you can too! When I first went looking for video game wallpapers for my phone, I was vaguely aware of what a Live Wallpaper was.

Finder for the Cloud? Collections Brings Online Services To Your Mac Desktop

Love it or hate it, the OS X Finder is a capable tool when it comes to browsing local files, previewing media and connecting to network shares. There are actually a good number of Finder replacements out there, but for most people Apple’s stock offering does the job just fine. One thing Finder doesn’t (yet) do is integrate with online services, email or Twitter.

Wake up! Isn’t it great when someone shakes you up in the morning and makes absolutely sure you’re up?

NFC Task Launcher: Make Your Phone Smart And Location-Aware [Android]

For me, a big part of a smartphone being “smart” is about automation – my phone should know when to switch Wi-Fi on and off on its own; it should be smart enough to be silent when I want it to be silent, and to ring at other times. Generally, it should just do what I want it to do without me having to remember to fiddle with settings throughout the day. There are a few ways to accomplish that.

Clean & Optimize Your Computer for Better Performance With WinOptimizer

Over the last few years, I’ve tried quite a few applications that promise to clean up and optimize your computer. The thing is, there are a lot of different degrees of “clean” if you really think about it. You’ve got junk in the registry, junk in the hard drive like log files, old install files and Internet history, or even just poorly considered settings for Windows utilities. There are different programs out there that will supposedly clean up your PC, like BleachBit or CCleaner.

Is Office 2013 For You?

I’ve been running the Microsoft Office 2013 trial on my new Windows 8 tablet lately, in order to get a good look at the finished product and decide whether to upgrade from Office 2010. While researching the paid options, however, I noticed that there is a bit of a disparity between the various paid options and the free software offered as part of Microsoft Office Web Apps. In short, there is a good chance that many users could be suckered into purchasing a copy of Microsoft Office 2013
