Dance music has recently undergone a major transformation in the music industry, but with Size Record's newest foray into the app/'augmented reality' world, the forward thinking movement has reached a new frontier. Now, using your iOS or Android powered phone, you can dive into the world of Size by pointing your camera at certain predefined images. Sound cool? Let me explain.
Once you download the app (available here for Android and here for iOS) your phone will launch a camera like application, but you don't use it to take pictures. Simply point the camera at the Size marker, and voila! You enter a world of artist bios, concert calenders and streaming, bass-thumping EDM from the likes of Steve Angello and the rest of the Size crew. Download the app today and connect with some of the biggest names in EDM or be doomed to live in an unaugmented world forever.
Google Shopper: This app finds products at the lowest prices in your area. You also get access to special offers from "deal sites" like Groupon and Living Social.
Gas Buddy: If you're one of the lucky travelers who can drive to your destination this holiday season, you'll definitely want to download Gas Buddy. This app locates nearby stations and gives you gas prices so you can find the best deal.
Premiering today is Amazon’s application store for Android users. To sweeten the deal Amazon is making Angry Bird Rio free to download for the entire day. An offshoot of probably the most famous cell phone game, it’s probably a nice little bonus for new users.
Amazon’s app store will also let users try out apps that cost money for 30 minutes. This is a luxury usually not afforded to app customers. The “try before you buy” idea might be great for people looking through a myriad of similar games or eReaders only to find that the one with the best description was the lousiest out of the 10 or 20 available for the same exact price.
Don't think about de-friending Facebook quite yet users. Even though your obsessive ways with checking on the site every hour wouldn't allow you to do such a thing anyway.
The Wall Street Journal has been researching how companies use databases in order to track potential employees online and found on the way that Facebook user's aren't hard to find. Applications on the site can be used as a gateway to send the user's name to dozens of Internet and advertising tracking companies. In other words, un-tag that photo immediately!
