Take a 'Moment' to check out this amazing new iPhone application!

How much time do you think you spend on your phone? Really? If you're like most people, then it's probably more time than that. Our smartphones are practically an extension of us these days, so it's no surprise the word 'addiction' is commonly used to describe ourselves and people we know when speaking our relationships with our devices.

However, thanks to Kevin Holesh, the creator of the brand-new iOS application, "Moment," you no longer have to worry about why all your battery life diminishes so quickly, or how much time you're actually spending on that cherised device of yours. Check out this quick video demonstration he put together, showing off the features of the app!



Moment is in the App Store now! https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/moment-track-where-you-go/id771541926?ls=1&mt=8

If you try the application, please leave a review with comments and suggestions for the next version of the application.

AOL's Hardwired, hosted by iJustine, Season 2!

Hey everyone!

Last year, AOL debuted a handful of new shows. One of those was Hardwired, featuring online personality Justine Ezarik, also known as iJustine. Last year, I blogged about it, and I was a huge fan of the show from the start.

AOL announced that it would be renewing a few of their new shows, and one of those was HardWired!

Last season focused on wearable technology exclusively. However, season 2 (now called HardWired 2.0) will be focusing on a wider variety of technologies, such as those in the food and fashion industry.

The first episode premiered May 21st, and currently there are 3 available to watch. I've seen them all so far and I've enjoyed each and every one. Check it out!




Enjoy! New HardWired 2.0 episodes premiere every Wednesday on the AOL Originals YouTube channel.

Jotterpad X: My Favorite Text Editor and Writing App for Android

It's not often that an app comes along that I just can't stop using. I install something new, become fascinated, even a little obsessed, then get bored and uninstall. But some applications have become a staple on my devices lately. One of those is Jotterpad X.

Jotterpad X is a minimalist writing app for Android devices. I love its "Styles" feature, which can inspire the way you write by changing the layout and font styles of your work.
