iHelpPlus: Where Personal Safety Is Paramount

Posted by Jennifer Allen on August 13th, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Life, for the most part, is quite safe, but for those moments where we could do with help, it's useful to know that apps such as iHelpPlus exist.

iHelpPlus offers multiple useful features for those concerned about their safety. First of all, there's a built-in flashlight facility and a place to store personal and medical information.

More importantly comes the alarm functionality that means users can send a distress message to an emergency contact along with their current location and a request to contact the local police. Both audible and silent alarms are possible, lending itself to different situations.

A delayed alarm feature is also provided enabling users to set up a custom alarm that is activated if they don't enter a pass code in time, thereby offering an extra source of protection if something happens to them. In each case, if the alarm is activated, GPS monitoring kicks in and informs emergency contacts of the user's location.

Additionally, users can add 4 quick contacts that are always accessible at the tap of a button.

A subscription service is required to fully use iHelpPlus after the first month of use which comes free with the $0.99 purchase of the app. $6.99 seems pretty cheap to me for peace of mind, however.

iHelpPlus is available now.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Every music fan loves to attend concerts. It's not always practical or affordable, unfortunately. This is precisely where Qello helps out.

It's an app that allows its users to view concerts wherever they are, all through the Qello interface. For free, users get to view a track from every show as well as hours of free content that's also available. For $4.99 a month, users get the full experience.

The full experience allows users to create their own setlists, adding their favorite tracks in whatever order they wish. Content is available from the 1950s to the current day of music, with a plethora of music documentaries also accessible. Every genre thinkable is covered here. AirPlay support then makes it possible to stream all this content to the big screen via Apple TV.

Qello is out now for both iPhone and iPad. It's free to check out samples of the content on offer with a $4.99 monthly subscription required to view everything available through the service.

Knitting Ideas From Creative Knitting

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Knitting is an unsung cool hobby to have. While some people may think it's all knitting sweaters and scarves, the only restriction really is the person's imagination. As someone instrumental in the creation of a baby Link (from The Legend of Zelda series) costume, I should know. {Ed note: leave her a comment below if you want to see an image!}

While Creative Knitting doesn't provide such a pattern, it does provide plenty of great ideas for other knitting projects, and on a regular basis.

The app is initially free with subscription packages priced between $6.99 and $15.99 to unlock all that great content. Each issue comes with a basic stitch guide, metric conversion chart, abbreviation glossary and technique reference page. Every issue also comes with two dozen or more projects covering every kind of knitware from young to old.

Whether just starting out with knitting or a seasoned pro, Creative Knitting is a great app and subscription service to glean inspiration from.

It's out now and it's an Universal app.
