MapQuest 4 Mobile: A Nice Throwback To Downloadable Maps [iPhone]

By now, if you’re a smartphone user (and yes, we know that some of you stay away from smartphones) you are already likely reliant on Google, Nokia, or Apple for your map-related needs. But why not kick it old school with MapQuest, the original travel assistant?

I remember when my family used MapQuest printouts for long trips from Tennessee to Montana and Colorado, and it’s a miracle we got by using just that.

Echograph iPhone Review: Can This Cinemagraph App Steal The Throne From Cinemagram?

Cinemagraphs blend selective animation and a static image to create a unique looping scene, popularised using Photoshop to adapt famous film scenes into contemplative GIFs a few years ago. Since the concept is so promising, app developers have pounced on the idea after the original release of Cinemagram. There’s now a new contender for the throne in the form of Echograph, an app which on first glance is remarkably similar.

Clean Up Your Facebook News Feed With Social Fixer Filtering [Weekly Facebook Tips]

Facebook has become a one size fits all social networking platform. The typical News Feed is filled with randomly mixed updates from friends, family, colleagues, and various pages. While you may want to see all of those posts, at least sometimes, you might not want to see all of them at the same time. Unfortunately, Facebook doesn’t really offer easy solutions to prune or categorize the News Feed.

Become a Pro Outlook User By Avoiding Common Mistakes

If you work in a typical office environment, the odds are pretty good that the mail system is an Exchange sever and that the mail client of choice is Outlook. We’ve covered Outlook here at MUO from a few angles, including Outlook Journal and backing up your Outlook data. We even covered some cool VBA scripting in Outlook where you could export your tasks into an Excel spreadsheet. In this article, I’m going to take a closer look at the Outlook client itself.

Should I Put My PC To Sleep Or Leave It On & Save The World?

Most people put their PCs to sleep, hibernate them, or turn them off when they’re not in-use. However, you can also choose to run your PC 24/7, contributing your PC’s processing power to distributed computing projects. With these projects, your PC can help fight cancer, test climate change models, or even search for alien life. However, computers use power when they’re on, and they use more power when their CPUs (or GPUs) are going full-throttle.

Look At That Photograph: 7 Websites Full Of Funny Photos

There are quite a few of us here at MakeUseOf who are very keen on photography. I count myself as one of those people, though I do it purely for fun. I’m not even that good at it, but in an age when smartphones have made everyone capable photographers (as well as making life easier) the quantity of shots taken has somewhat taken over from the quality of shots taken.

Figure Out Website Problems With Chrome Developer Tools Or Firebug

If you’ve been following my jQuery tutorials so far, you may have already run into some code problems and not known how to fix them. When faced with a non-functional bit of code, it’s very difficult to actually pinpoint the offending line of code – and that’s where debugging and developer tools come in. So before continuing with some more complex jQuery code, I thought we’d examine the tools available in the world’s most popular browser – Chrome.
