DialApp (Android) - A context-aware phone dialer!


Developer Quote: "Yeah, what if the phone magically predicts whom you would call based on your context; your location, time, calendar, conversations etc. Adding context makes for an intelligent dialer."

If you've ever spent several minutes trying to bring up the contact info for someone you're trying to call on your Android phone, or even worse if you can't even remember who you were about to call at all, you know that this app has a great idea. Depending on the context, it can figure out who you're planning to call!



For example:

-You are home and it is night, you open dialer, it shows your girlfriend, mom, BFF.

-You are in the bus running late to office, open dialer and your boss's on the list.

-It is lunch time and you open dialer, your favorite home delivery restaurant is on the list.

Developer Quote: "This simple app allows you to use a homescreen widget to quickly toggle the default keyboard from the enabled keyboards on your Android device."

Or you may just get tired of one and feel the need to get something different up. Either way, this is a great little widget that works as advertised and makes switching keyboards simple and fast.

HotShots (Windows)

Developer Quote: "HotShots is an application for capturing screens and saving them in a variety of image formats as well as adding annotations and graphical data (arrows, lines, texts, ...)."


I'm always... I mean ALWAYS, looking for a great new screenshot tool. I've tried many, kept a couple, but this one looks like it's got tons of annotation/editing tools, which are a big part of the utility of an application like this. The other big feature I look for is easy of use. How easy is it to bring up and use, etc. So if you find the need to capture your screen, or part of your screen, and then jazz it up, try this one...

Fixya (Android) - How to fix almost anything


Developer Quote: "Have a product question? Ask almost anything by using your device’s video camera to easily communicate your problem instead of trying to describe it with just text."

Used to be, when we lived in villages and hamlets, if you needed to fix something and had no idea how to do it, you could ask the village expert. Now, it's true that their fixes had a substantial chance of being totally useless, but at least there was someone who supposedly knew how to do whatever it is you needed help doing.



Today we don't have the village expert nearby, but we do have the technology to reach out to the vast number of them who are far away and whom we do not know. One way to do this is to use this app. Record a short video of the problem and send it into the virtual crowd, and someone or many someones will watch you video and respond, hopefully with excellent advice.
