Coaching sports can be both one of the most fulfilling, yet thankless jobs on the planet. You are tasked with taking fundamentally challenged players and transforming them into polished athletes. When it comes to instructing these players it is helpful to have any innovative technology at your disposal. And what could be more helpful than having slow motion video analysis, all available at a moment’s notice. The new tool Coach’s Eye aims to bring this functionality to any iOS device with a camera.
Here is how the application could be put to use:
Without question, this could be put to good use by any trained sports educator. Being able to playback the footage of a player to themselves could be just what they need to make career defining adjustments that could help differentiate between riding the pine or leading off to start an inning. Really, isn’t $4.99 a small price to pay for success?

Life is busy enough as it is, without having to figure schedule balancing into the mix. With so many different calendar services like iCal, Google Calendar and even Facebook events, it is becoming impossible to keep up!

Say hello to Upto, because it is ready to transform your social life for the better.

With the kind of press it has been receiving, it could very well be the wave of the future.
At this point it is safe to assume that any electronic device with some kind of a screen most likely has some permutation of UNO available for purchase. If that wasn’t the case before, it sure is now, thanks to
HasbroMattel and Gameloft and the upcoming release of their newest entry into the UNO franchise: UNO & Friends. While this in and of itself isn’t that big of news, what makes it interesting are the new multiplatform features coming to the game.
The title is planned to launch on iOS and Android this fall, wit hNintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita versions coming early next year. What makes this so cool is that all versions of the game will be able to play together simultaneously. Taking things even one step further, there will also be a Facebook version of the game as well, that can also be used to take part in the action. Suddenly the concept of playing games with friends became even more enticing. Have fun ignoring all those game requests from family members and former classmates!
Sneaking candid shots of yourself and sharing them with the world has become a staple of the iOS ownership experience. There was always the issue of security when it came to apps like instagram. Under most circumstances your photos were essentially being broadcast into the ether, for everyone with an internet connection to consume. Who would you expect to come to the aid of users who wanted to share their images in a more discrete manner? If you guessed Warner Bros. you may want to consider getting your head checked, but oddly enough that is actually the correct answer.
Despite coming from a completely unlikely source, outmywindow is a hybrid of social networking and photo storage that allows you full control of who can see your photos. Users can even import images from their iOS libraries and create albums to once again share with only those that are worthy of permission. The app is free and looks to be a solid alternative to other providers on the market. Plus, when they are offering 5GB of free storage, there is always an added incentive.
Employers are constantly fighting an uphill battle these days. In an age where tax laws are constantly in flux, it has become virtually impossible to conduct business without the aid of serious financial software. Intuit, the developer of the extremely popular Quicken and QuickBooks suites, has decided to lend a small hand to folks struggling to keep their payroll records in order with the release of Snap Payroll.
Though it may not contain the overwhelming feature set of its PC centric counterparts, Snap Payroll is a handy way to calculate paychecks on the move. Here is a video demonstrating the application’s capabilities:
As you can see, the uses of this tool are rather focused, but how can you complain when the app is free? One other thing to note is that it is currently only available in twelve states, with more coming soon. Check to see if you are among the lucky few and take it out for a spin. Let us know if it would be helpful to your business in the comments.
It has been said that music is the one true universal language. Going along those same lines, music can speak to your mood and feelings as well. For example, who wants to listen to “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” when they are depressed? That is why death metal was created! With this specific scenario in mind, developer Gravity Mobile set out to make a tool to provide folks with tunes to suit their emotions. The result of these efforts is the new multimedia app, HABU Music.
Thanks to a little help from Gracenote, users will be able to analyze their music collection to see what it says about their personality. Along the same lines, HABU Music will also help in organizing specialized playlist that cater to the whim of a listener. Remember those wicked mood rings from grade school? Now there is finally a multimedia player that can adapt just as easily. The future of music has arrived!
