Spraffl: Is Anonymous Local Networking The Way Of The Future?

After writing up a news article about Spraffl, I grew very curious about how it worked. The app is described as one that connects people to an “anonymous social experiment”. I chatted up a few of my peers about the peculiar piece of software, but all of the responses I received were fairly similar – “what’s the point?” Each person I spoke to offered very valid reasons. However, I still see some potential in Spraffl.

Skype For Mac: Video Call All Your Friends, Apple-Style [Mac]

There are already a few articles on MakeUseOf about the features available for Mac’s Skype such as its group video client, experience-enhancing tips, and even some shortcuts that you may not know about. However, we’ve never really talked about the app itself. Overall, Skype for Mac is an app that performs in a solid manner, and I have a feeling that I will end up using it time and time again.

Get A Visual Taste Of History With Google Maps & Google Earth

Google Maps and Google Earth have always been known for helping mobility-impaired wunderlusters virtually adventure all over the globe. However, despite any of your current obstacles, it’s always possible – whether it be after time or financial gain – to travel at least once in your life.

Are Your Children Circumventing Internet Filters?

You may say to yourself that you’ve installed the finest web filter available, and I’m sure that it’s a solid piece of work. However, no filter is impenetrable, and the truth is that the only 100% complete protection against the Internet is no Internet. Alas, we can’t just get rid of the web, can we? Instead, maybe we can at least explore how filters are bypassed.

Draw, Color & More In An Uncluttered Environment With Sketchbook Express [Mac]

People have always adapted technology to their creativity, and computers are no different. What originally started out as a gigantic calculator became a device for communication, office filing, and now, artwork. With Sketchbook Express for Mac, you can draw all kinds of pictures with the aid of a pen and stylus. Furthermore, it’s free, and although there’s a price for its older brother – Sketchbook Pro – you can use Sketchbook Express for more basic image creation.

Take Your iPhone Photos To The Next Level With Adobe Photoshop Express [iPhone]

Adobe is already known for its amazing artistic applications like After Effects, Flash, and Photoshop. However, it has always typically established its home in the desktop realm. The company’s software was typically meant for professionals, and since most professionals do not use their iPhone to create work for clients, there was not much of a reason to venture away from this territory.
