Tap Notify: Contact Your Buddies With Just One Tap [iPhone]

You’re caught up in a roaring wave of busy airport travelers, and stopping for even a minute to jot down a text will get you trampled. What’s the best way to quickly contact your ride in this situation? Tap Notify has the solution, and all it will take is a few seconds of your time. Granted, you will have to briefly pull out your iPhone, but it’s much more convenient than writing an entire book with Messages.

Viber: Call & Text Other Users For Free [iPhone]

Free calling and texting for your iPhone. Yep. It’s real. With Viber, that’s exactly what you get since it works through whatever WiFi connection you happen to be using. This gives you one more reason to mooch off the neighbors! Despite a few reasonable hoops to jump through, the app is quite functional. It says it offers free calling and free texting, and it does. Nothing can beat that. As far as I can tell, Viber is a wonderful app with a variety of practical uses.

Whatever Happened To…? Following Up On Major Websites From The Dotcom Boom

Many of you remember the Dotcom Boom that happened in the late nineties. All it took to make your stock go up was a “.com” or an “e-” attached to your company’s name.

We have 5 of the top websites that came into existence because of the boom.

Waze: A Social GPS For Your Daily Commute [iOS]

Out of all the navigation apps that are currently on the market, Waze may very well have the best concept. The only catch is that it doesn’t have a “big name” backing it (like Google or Apple Maps).
