iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Juggling free time to spend with friends and family can be a surprisingly stressful business. How often have you found yourself wondering when to fit people in, or worse of all, finding yourself with some extra time that you didn't realise you'd have, thus not having a plan sorted out? It's a blessed curse really, and it'd be so useful to be able to use that time better. Enter the solution: Glomper Free Time.

Glomper Free Time makes it much simpler to share free time with friends, colleagues and even strangers (if you so wish), by hitting the "I'm free" button, selecting a time and duration, with the app determining the location automatically.

Any friends nearby with the app can then see who's available and what kind of activity they want to get involved in for that period of time.

With enough users, Glomper Free Time should prove a great way of utilizing time better as well as meeting up with potential new friends. Just remember to encourage friends to sign up at the same time as yourself.

Glomper Free Time is out now and free to download.

Favorite Fifty: 148Apps Best Apps of 2011: 16 - 25

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on December 27th, 2011

In what was another fantastic year in the world of iOS apps & games, we are here to bring you the fifty titles that we, the staff of 148Apps, thought were the best of the year. Here are the app titles 16 - 25 in our Best Apps of 2011:

iMovie- Video editing on the iPhone is revolutionary enough, but the extra screen space on the iPad makes this activity truly useful. Making movies is fun again, thanks in no small part to Apple's attention to detail in this flagship app.

Facebook - The wait was long for the iPad version but between its iconic look and intuitive menus systems, the official Facebook Universal app renders the competition obsolete. It's fantastic to have this in both flavors, for checking on the go or on the couch.

FX Photo Studio HD - Offering a plethora (194 at last count) of different photo effects without forgetting the bare essentials like crop and rotate, FX Photo Studio is a one stop shop for everything anyone might need in a photo editing app.

Dolphin Browser - With gesture based controls and a speed dial system of visiting regularly used sites, Dolphin has made my browsing experience so much faster this year. Safari continues to dominate as the default browser, but Dolphin Browser does so much more so much better.

Daedalus Touch - When we're writing complex, thoughtful pieces of journalism, we like to be undistracted by the cruft of modern computing, like Facebook, or ads. Daedalus Touch makes this possible but doesn't forget to include useful features like iCloud and Dropbox support.

GroupMe - We use this app all the darn time to chat amongst ourselves, even when we have nothing much to say. For private team meetings, SMS integration, and just plain great usability, GroupMe is our go to app. It's also accessible via the web, so no matter where we are, we can join in the conversation.

Stitcher - We love podcasts, and we love Universal apps. Stitcher has both! Using iTunes to download and listen to podcasts is so last year; Stitcher allows us to grab our favorites while on the go, and even provides curated lists for those of us craving that something new we haven't heard before.

Free Time - What can we say? Time-management is very important to us and this app makes it much easier than it used to be. Instead of the standard question of "where do we need to be," Free Time answers the much more subtle - yet equally important, "when do we not need to be anywhere?" This allows us to take that downtime when we can find it, or at least know we're not double booking ourselves. What? Like you've never done that.

Voice Actions - It's not exactly something that we NEED to get through our day, but we're still impressed by just how comprehensive this app is. It also allows us to satisfy our Siri envy until we all get a 4S phone to use. Use Voice Actions to call, text, search the internet, and even bring up favorite apps all with your voice, on any iOS device.

7Notes Premium HD - Need a note taking app with just a bit more to it? 7Notes Premium is a fantastic blend of handwriting recognition, note taking facility, and Evernote compatibility that makes something greater than the sum of its parts. While we'd love a Universal app, there is a version for both the iPad and the smaller devices, so most folks can use this one.

Five for Friday: Week of June 3, 2011

Posted by John Bardinelli on June 3rd, 2011

Monster Hunter Dynamic Hunting:
Got a bit of Monster Hunter on your brain? The immensely popular open world RPG/action game has finally made its way to the iTunes App Store, focusing on two things gamers love most: combat, and loot from combat. Take on gigantic beasts from the Monster Hunter universe in one-on-one battles, swiping and touching your way to victory. Grab the goods when the fight is over and use it to craft new items and armor, strengthening yourself for the battles to come. It's definitely one of those "just one more battle" sort of games, even if you haven't been bitten by the Monster Hunter bug yet!

Why focus on meetings, appointments, and other time-eating activities when you can focus on what matters most: your free time? This slick-looking app is sort of the inverse of a calendar program, where instead of tracking actual events, it tracks and displays the time between them, pulling data from your local scheduling app to bring it all together. Enter your usual work day, factoring in meals, sleep, and average waking and going to bed times, then share your free times with friends. Surprisingly great for productivity, especially for those who consider free time more important than non-free time!

This V That:
Visually explore two seemingly unrelated things in a smart, stylish app that's all about comparing data for different parts of the world. For example: is there a relationship between coffee consumption and homicide rates? How about Olympic medalists versus number of Facebook users in different countries? There's an app for that, and it's This V That. Great for trivia enthusiasts and anyone who enjoys apps that raise as many questions as they ask.

Ever wanted to learn to play the guitar? Piano? How2Play is a universal app that contains a number of lessons, courses, background tracks and sheet music available to help you accomplish your musical goals. The download features a number of starter lessons, complete with instructional videos, and allows you to easily grab lessons from How2Play's website (around $6 per lesson) so you can hone your skills and learn to play specific songs.

The enemy of writing is the distraction, and with devices like portable gaming consoles and iPads floating around, an awesome game is never more than a few taps away. OmmWriter aims to help free your mind of the clutter by streamlining your writing experience with a simple layout and a keyboard designed for improved usability. Soothing sounds are available, or you can opt for silence, but the user-centric keyboard design is where the real strength lays.
