Apps of the week


Apps of the week
Each week in The Scene in the Irish Daily Star, I round up some of the best new smartphone and tablet PC apps doing the rounds. Here are this week's apps...
Tweekaboo, Free, iPhone:
Tweekaboo was established in September by Cork consulting engineer Eugene Murphy. It allows users to quickly upload texts, photos and videos on the go to an online diary of you or your child’s life. You use your iPhone to upload and save precious moments to your Tweekaboo diary. The diary is only shared with whom you choose — private social networking.

Trello, Free, iPhone:
Trello is a clever new web app for small teams trying to organise anything at all — from work to weddings. You don’t download anything — it all happens inside your web browser. You can create custom lists to meet all your needs and can add as many users as you like, so that the whole team can log in from anywhere and see all the lists. Within a short time, you can build a smart online team system to use anywhere.

UPC Remote Record
, Free, iPhone:

This is one of the most useful apps released recently. UPC’s Remote Record app means telly addicts never need worry again about missing their favourite TV shows when they are not at home. Users choose the shows they want to watch, press the ‘record’ or ‘reminder’ button and a notification is sent to their Digital or Digital+ set top box to schedule the recording or reminder.

AA Ireland Breakdown App
, Free, iPhone:

The AA Ireland App gives members of the AA and non-members an easy way to contact AA Breakdown in an emergency.As well as breakdown assistance, users can also access location-based AA Roadwatch traffic updates and look at map views of traffic. If it added the handy route planner feature used on the AA website, this app would truly be a driver’s dream.
