Currency – An Easy Way To Get Money Conversions On The Go [iOS]

When you are on the go, one of the most important pieces of information to have is currency conversions. After all, you need to know how far your money will go where you are. Are you getting a positive conversion or a negative one? How much of a hit will you take and will you need to bring more money to compensate for the conversion? Thankfully, the aptly named iPhone app Currency has all the conversions you need in one place.

Use Data Master To Keep Track Of Your iPhone’s Data Usage [iOS, Free For A Limited Time]

In the United States, there was a time not long ago when everyone with an iPhone had unlimited data. It was actually a requirement with AT&T. If you wanted to walk into an AT&T store and walk out with an iPhone, you had no choice. Now, most cellular carriers in the US are not even offering unlimited data, and for those grandfathered in, the carriers are even working on ways to remove the unlimited data you already have.

The Most Overpriced Products In Video Game History [MUO Gaming]

I think at this point, all gamers have accepted that playing and buying video games is an expensive hobby. Between the cost of games, consoles, and accessories, it’s easy for a gamer to drop a large portion of their income on gaming. This is to be expected, as we are involved in a hobby that often uses the latest and greatest technology, which is bound to cost a pretty penny. In some cases, the cost of being a gamer gets a little crazy.

PicZoom Allows You To Make Fun Pictures With A Zoomed Emphasis [iOS, Free For A Limited Time]

One of my favorite memes online is the old “Soon” pictures. These are the ones where it zooms in on a person in the background making a devious face in the photo. They took Reddit and other places where memes run the show by storm, and these photos are always good for a laugh. The subject doesn’t always have to be in the background, but in my opinion, the “soon” memes that zoom are by far the funniest.

Persona 4 Golden Is The Best Game On PlayStation Vita [MUO Gaming]

Since its initial release, things have slowed down a great deal for the PlayStation Vita. The system is just not getting enough games to create a compelling argument to drop the money on one. Amazon’s Black Friday deal on the Vita certainly put a few more units in the hands of gamers, but what game is the one they really need to get? The answer is simple: Persona 4 Golden.

Our To Do List – A Simple Task Manager for Multiple Users [iOS, Free For A Limited Time]

One thing there is no shortage of on iOS is to do list applications. If you own an iPhone, it seems like it would be almost impossible to get off track, what with a thousand applications out there that will tell you to do the tasks you need to accomplish. So, if there are so many to do applications on the iPhone, why am I bothering to write about another one? This app is different in that it allows multiple users to access and manage a to do list.

Traveling is a giant pain in the rear. You have to book all of your flights, hotels, rental cars, dinner reservations, and so on. After you book it, you have to keep track of all the important times and information for the trip. Sure, once you get to your destination and start doing all the fun stuff, it is enjoyable, but the preparation for a trip is usually less than pleasant.
