data-colorscheme=\"light\" data-layout=\"button_count\" data-action=\"like\" data-share=\"false\"></div></div></div><p>In honor of #FoodAllergyAwarenessWeek, I set out to review the best mobile apps for people like myself who suffer from severe food allergies. It&#8217;s a near-invisible but deeply troubling problem that&#8217;s unfortunately growing in prominence over the past two decades. As such, you&#8217;d think in a market full of niche apps <strong>so</strong> wide that we have <a href=\"https://backend.appolicious.com/augmenting-your-reality-holo-with-arkit-interview/\">holograms</a> and <a href=\"https://backend.appolicious.com/the-best-meditation-apps-you-should-have-on-your-iphone-to-find-your-peace-of-mind/\">meditation guidance</a>&#8230; that you&#8217;d figure we have plenty great food allergy apps, right?</p>\n<p>You&#8217;d be wrong.</p>\n<p>I downloaded some of the reportedly best apps for someone with my condition, and here&#8217;s what I found. I&#8217;ve included both two that you should absolutely avoid, and the two most useful apps I discovered.</p>\n<h2><strong>The Worst:</strong></h2>\n<h3>For Kids &#8212; <em>Allergy Reality</em></h3>\n<p>This is one of several apps that aims to educate your whole family about what is and isn&#8217;t safe to eat. It does this with a series of mini-games with varying amounts of relevance, with the best being the simple act of asking players to pick out what food is or isn&#8217;t safe based on their allergy, while the worst is an infuriating matching game more likely to annoy a child than inform them.</p>\n<p>Then there&#8217;s the one asking kids to spell out an allergen&#8217;s name in a reversed form of hangman. Nevermind most of the children who will use this app won&#8217;t know how to spell &#8220;BRAZILIAN NUTS&#8221; and also for the record, they&#8217;re referred to typically as just &#8220;Brazil Nuts&#8221;.</p>\n<p>To be fair, I discovered another good one where the player has to pick out from what ingredients weren&#8217;t safe from an ingredient list on the back of a box, but there&#8217;s something you may be noticing &#8211; the best mini-games available are things you could <em>just do at home with actual food products</em>. The rest of the mini-games border on bizarre and outright ill-conceived. There&#8217;s no relevant lesson here that necessitates downloading the app. But hey, it&#8217;s got a theme song and some really strange-yet-boring mini-games, and apparently that&#8217;s warranted it being a popular download.</p>\n<h3>For Adults &#8212; <em>Spokin</em></h3>\n<p>Did you need a new social media platform that&#8217;s really hard to navigate, basically just doubles as an ad platform for a few (your mileage may vary, I saw mostly the same one over and over again) allergen-free brands? I didn&#8217;t, but apparently somebody thought we needed one. It seems no one told the developers of <em>Spokin</em> that there&#8217;s already dozens of Facebook groups dedicated to this. While there&#8217;s clearly good intentions behind this one, it&#8217;s only slightly less irrelevant than <em>Allergy Reality</em>.</p>\n<h2><strong>The Best:</strong></h2>\n<h3>For Kids &#8212; <em>Wizdy Diner</em></h3>\n<p>Apparently odd names are just a rule of thumb for allergy apps, but at least<em> Wizdy</em> offers a solid effort when it comes to conveying how easily allergens can slip in when you&#8217;re eating out at a restaurant. The core gameplay is a typical <em>Diner Dash</em> clone, except now you have to make sure to catch every person&#8217;s allergens before telling the chef what to cook up. The parade of customers gets faster and faster, increasing the odds some of your customers might be sent to the hospital if you aren&#8217;t careful. Along the way, you upgrade your diner and have to choose what food you have on offer &#8211; giving kids a light bit of management, in addition to consequences for if they don&#8217;t have allergen-friendly food on the menu.</p>\n<p>The game itself is basic, but achieves its goals better than any other child-friendly app that I tried. It&#8217;s genuinely possible to give your customers the wrong food order a few times, and the gravity of your actions &#8211; while not as severe as they would be in real life &#8211; are made clear. There&#8217;s even a secondary mini-game on the main menu about educating kids how to use an epinephrine shot. It&#8217;s not the most<em> exciting</em> game, but it translates the risks of food allergies at restaurants with the clear, easily understood language of gameplay mechanics. Edutainment done right.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 1059091444?ls=1&amp;mt=8) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fwizdy-diner-food-allergy-game%2Fid1059091444%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wizdy-diner-food-allergy-game/id1059091444?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is4-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple118/v4/6d/98/99/6d9899b3-23d6-183f-0e2a-c6f0d5ca2ec0/mzl.ojuiablb.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wizdy-diner-food-allergy-game/id1059091444?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wizdy-diner-food-allergy-game/id1059091444?mt=8\" title=\"Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game\" class=\"apptitle\">Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/lifeguard-games-inc/id819845868?mt=8\">LifeGuard Games, Inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-8a15fd8b4fc1994b5fb2221e529aa8c1 googleplay colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid\"><img src=\"//lh3.googleusercontent.com/HNk0uXtkknLuSGcTwvBEoX414xdlx2tmQCCsh0Iu_CDtK6U-AwYDX10arff6C7GOyg=s180\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-8a15fd8b4fc1994b5fb2221e529aa8c1 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-8a15fd8b4fc1994b5fb2221e529aa8c1 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid\" title=\"Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game\" class=\"apptitle\">Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=LifeGuard+Games,+Inc.\">LifeGuard Games, Inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h3>For Adults &#8212; <em>ipiit: The Food Ambassador</em></h3>\n<p>Yes, that&#8217;s actually it&#8217;s name, but <em>ipiit</em> is one of the more useful apps available. It&#8217;s a barcode scanner that can quickly inform you about many common products, and is supported in part by a public database that its users grow by taking pictures of products. The scanner function works fine so long as it knows the product, and if it doesn&#8217;t, you can easily take a few pictures and send it off to the app&#8217;s developers. It&#8217;s a brilliant use of crowd-sourcing that makes perfect sense. You can even specify what your allergen is &#8211; but that&#8217;s where things go downhill for an otherwise solid app.</p>\n<p>You see,<em> ipiit</em>, in all its unpronounceable wisdom, doesn&#8217;t feature support for all top 8 major allergens. It can tell you if the food has almonds or gluten, but there&#8217;s a laundry list of allergens that need added, and clearly the developers know this because there&#8217;s already an automated list for requested allergens. Now, I understand that in this case, it&#8217;s a daunting task to keep up with all the allergens in food, but the top 8 should all be in there. By offering such a narrow scope, <em>ipiit</em> feels more like a band-aid in its current state, which is a waste considering all the effort put in. It might spare you one or two phone calls at the grocery store when researching a product on the shelf, but it most certainly needs to grow if someone outside of its current allergen listings is ever to use it. It&#8217;s a great app, but there&#8217;s way too much missing here.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 536930786?mt=8) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-46935692acebb3817389f62c7f6487b2 appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets%2Fid536930786%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"ipiit - Grocery Scanner for Food Allergies &amp; Diets\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets/id536930786?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is5-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple127/v4/b6/c0/fa/b6c0faa9-7d3e-a7b1-7141-9fca5949c9a7/mzl.ggvqgstb.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"ipiit - Grocery Scanner for Food Allergies &amp; Diets\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets/id536930786?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-46935692acebb3817389f62c7f6487b2 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-46935692acebb3817389f62c7f6487b2 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets/id536930786?mt=8\" title=\"ipiit - Grocery Scanner for Food Allergies &amp; Diets\" class=\"apptitle\">ipiit - Grocery Scanner for Food Allergies & Diets</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/ipiit-inc/id536930889?mt=8\">ipiit, inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free</span> <div title=\"4.1 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars40\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.ipiit.ipiit&amp;hl=en_US) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-30e9bf82c9edf9049a203895b6ac7a6b googleplay colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.ipiit.ipiit&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"ipiit - Scan Food Ingredients\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ipiit.ipiit\"><img src=\"//lh3.ggpht.com/dLhoKPOMjrLEVUYHMOyBvIYcgqg3L5JsSvS7Sakc0Ec0EsjmZSOXY6lXpxLg8SD6UDY=s180\" alt=\"ipiit - Scan Food Ingredients\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ipiit.ipiit\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-30e9bf82c9edf9049a203895b6ac7a6b .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-30e9bf82c9edf9049a203895b6ac7a6b .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ipiit.ipiit\" title=\"ipiit - Scan Food Ingredients\" class=\"apptitle\">ipiit - Scan Food Ingredients</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=ipiit\">ipiit</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free</span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<p>Now, I want to be clear that these aren&#8217;t only the apps I tried, they&#8217;re just the most notable. A lot of the apps I tried were either a mediocre alternative of one of the apps listed above, or ineffectual at helping with the realities someone with food allergies faces. As food allergies fast become one of the biggest medical issues of our generation, but we can and should be trying to make things easier for those that suffer from them. While there are social circles and websites that help, that doesn&#8217;t mean mobile apps shouldn&#8217;t be offering decent alternatives. We need to be able to find a restaurant that&#8217;s safe to eat at, if there&#8217;s been cross-contamination alerts or ingredient changes in food, and most importantly of all &#8211; to know if a product is safe regardless of when customer service hours for the manufacturer run. These are basic quality of life needs that developers can help ease. I hope more answer the call, and present better options for our peers, and the generations to come.</p>\n<p>If you&#8217;ve heard of any great allergy apps we missed, be sure to let us know <a href=\"https://twitter.com/appolicious?lang=en\">@Appolicious</a>!</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n"},"date":"2018-05-18T01:46:02","date_gmt":"2018-05-18T01:46:02","excerpt":{"protected":false,"rendered":"<p>In a world full of life threatening food allergies, there should be better apps for families and allergic adults to rely on.</p>\n"},"featured_media":80498,"format":"standard","guid":{"rendered":"https://appolicious.com/?p=80307"},"id":80307,"link":"https://backend.appolicious.com/the-quest-for-quality-food-allergy-apps-foodallergyawarenessweek/","modified":"2018-05-18T01:46:02","modified_gmt":"2018-05-18T01:46:02","ping_status":"open","slug":"the-quest-for-quality-food-allergy-apps-foodallergyawarenessweek","status":"publish","sticky":false,"template":"","title":{"rendered":"The Quest for Quality Food Allergy Apps &#8211; #FoodAllergyAwarenessWeek"},"type":"post"}},{"authorDescription":"Sam is a YouTuber, Streamer &amp;amp; Games Journalist.

rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>As the Airbnb of car rentals, Turo is an app that facilitates the renting of cars between drivers. Without the need to pay significant fees for a vehicle as with traditional car rental locations, the app lets users rent different cars in the local area or in areas where the user will be which makes it perfect for those who are traveling. With so many vehicles available for rent through the app, users are able to specify the kind of cars that they want including features and geographical location so that they do not have to search through each individual post. Given the range of available cars from daily drivers to other, more luxurious cars, Turo is one of the best apps available for those who are looking to rent a car at a flexible duration and a highly competitive price.</p>\n<h3>Zipcar (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/zipcar/id329384702?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>/<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zc.android\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>Zipcar is an app that lets users have greater flexibility when renting a car compared to Turo. Prior to using the app, users need to first apply for an account at which point a Zipcar card will be delivered to them if approved. With the app, all that a user must do to rent a car is select how long they would like to rent the car for, whether it is by the hour or the day, choose from the selection of vehicles which are owned by private owners instead of a company, and then the time to pick up the car. Once a car has been selected and the time booked, users can then go to where their car is located and use the card they received to unlock the door.  This card will then be used to lock and unlock the doors during the rental process while the key remains in the car at all times. As one of the most cost-effective and flexible tools that help users get access to thousands of available vehicles, Zipcar is a highly recommended app for on-demand vehicles.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/BNhQYXChFBM\">How Sharing a Car with Zipcar Works (US Version) | Zipcar</a></h4>\n<p>http://pixvid.me/HowItWorksUS Hear from real members how to use Zipcar in just five steps.

What differentiates the app from other car rental alternatives is that there is a greater degree of customer service such as 24/7 cancelation, modifications, and upgrades. One of the best aspects of Avis Car Rental is that roadside assistance is available immediately for those who use the service so that users do not have to be concerned with previous drivers who may have damaged the vehicle. With these features, Avis Car Rental is a great app for those who wish to rent cars from a company instead of through private car owners.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/0BsPKTXHQsg\">The New Avis App</a></h4>\n<p>Check out the functions of the all new Avis app here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/avis-car-rental/id308342527?mt=8</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<h3>Enterprise Rent-A-Car (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/enterprise-rent-a-car/id1020641417?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>/<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ehi.enterprise.android\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>One of the easiest tools that can be used to rent cars is Enterprise Rent-A-Car which lets users rent vehicles right from their device in a matter of minutes.

Although the number of radio channels may be overwhelming in that users are not able to find the stations that they are interested in, one of the best aspects about Audials is that users can enter in the musicians or genre of music that they like while the app then returns the recommended selection so that users do not have to find the stations manually themselves.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/MEVemDqpfvI\">Audials Radio Mobile App &#8211; Over 80,000+ Radio Stations on your Mobile Device!</a></h4>\n<p>Today we take a look at the New Mobile App Audials Radio, an Amazing Radio App that lets you listen to over 80,000+ Radio Stations &#038; 100,000+ Podcasts on the go for Free!

Beyond this, the app also encompasses many of the common features that are familiar among other radio apps such as the ability to record the station and setting it as an alarm clock so that none of these functions are lost when using this specific app.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">For those who are looking for mobile tools that enable them to listen to the radio while on-the-go, Audials is one of the most comprehensive apps in the mobile space for all radio needs.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>Despite the app having one of the larger selections in terms of radio stations than many other alternatives available, there are many comparable apps on the Google Play Store that are more popular such as Tunein Radio which can make it difficult for Audials to stand out from the crowd. As a result, many people may not know of the app given the competitive landscape of radio apps among Android devices. However, Audials aims to differentiate itself by offering more than just simple radio stations as with other radio apps, but rather introduces additional elements to include over 260,000 podcasts for nearly every category available which adds to the breadth of its scope. In offering podcasts that range from tech to comedy, there is something of interest for every listener, making it an app that is suitable not only for older listeners, but one that can accommodate the taste of nearly any demographic.</p>\n<p><img class=\"alignright size-full wp-image-80527\" src=\"https://appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"607\" srcset=\"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials.jpg 1024w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials-300x178.jpg 300w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials-768x455.jpg 768w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials-350x207.jpg 350w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials-130x78.jpg 130w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials-830x492.jpg 830w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n<p>For those who are looking for mobile tools that enable them to listen to the radio while on-the-go, Audials is one of the most comprehensive apps in the mobile space for all radio needs.

href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/motivate-daily-motivation/id1068278823?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>)</h3>\n<p>While seeking fresh, inspirational messages on a daily basis can be time consuming, Motivate: Daily Motivation is an app that quickly curates motivational content into a single source.  From videos to quotes and even audio files, users of the app are able to receive motivational content through a clean interface that integrates various images with the message. Furthermore, as motivation stems from a broad spectrum for different people, various categories are made available ranging from courage, potential, mindset, and many more. Given that so many quotes are made available which can be difficult to read and follow, one of the best features associated with Motivate is that users are able to save the content to be read or watched later. In doing so, no important content is missed and can always be referred to at a later time if needed. With so many different media formats that are updated on a regular basis, Motivate is a highly recommended app for those who wish to receive a list of motivational quotes, videos, and audio files in a single place.</p>\n<h3>Fabulous: Motivate Me! Meditate, Relax, Sleep (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fabulous-motivate-me/id1203637303?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>/<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.thefabulous.app&amp;hl=en\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>Although being motivated is essential to achieving goals, what is more important than simply remaining motivated is to actually take action. With this in mind, Fabulous is an app that helps users enforce effective goals and then offer motivation throughout a 19 day period so that they become habits. For example, if a user had the goal of eating vegetables each day but found it difficult to maintain motivation over a longer period of time, the app would offer reminders, motivational quotes, and even tags that show what the end goal is such as to lose weight.

that needs to be taken is to go into the Settings app and then select Wallet &amp; Apple Pay. After that, users can select Add Credit or Debit Card at the top of the screen at which point they are able to enter in the card details to the app. Instead of having to enter in all of the digits that are associated with the card, users can simply use the scanning method which then uses the camera to automatically extract the relevant information on the card so that users do not have to enter it in manually. Once the card has been verified and added, users need to enter in the verification code that is sent either through text or their email. Upon doing so, the card has now been added and is ready to be used with POS systems that are compatible with Apple Pay. Users can then go into the Wallet app at which point the card should appear there and be ready to be used. The quickest way to then access the card to make a payment is to double click the home button at which point the card will appear and then users can make purchases by confirming their passcode with their touch ID. As multiple cards can be added, it is a mobile wallet that is highly comprehensive in what users are able to carry.</p>\n<h3>For Google Pay</h3>\n<p>For Android users, mobile card payment first needs to be accessed by downloading the <a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.walletnfcrel\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Google Pay app</a> as opposed to having an app already preloaded onto the phone as with iOS devices. After the app has been downloaded, the app has a walkthrough which helps users get started with loading their cards onto the phone. For users who have already made purchases through their Google account, the cards will already be loaded but for completely new cards, users can load these by entering their card details such as name and card number. After this information has been loaded, users can then select their preferred payment methods. What makes the Google Pay app more intuitive than Apple Pay is that users do not need to do anything special to activate the payment method as all that is required is for users to simply hold up their phone to a payment terminal without opening the app. With this, it becomes as intuitive to use as tapping the card on POS systems without the need to do any extra steps.</p>\n<h3>Cards – Mobile Wallet (<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cardsapp.android\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>Although not strictly just a mobile payments app, Cards is an app that encompasses all of the cards that a user may need on a daily basis. For example, health cards and identification along with payment cards can be kept in the mobile wallet so that no physical wallet is needed to carry the cards. With the cards that are not payment based, barcodes can be presented and scanned by regular POS systems or presented as a normal card. One of the best features of Cards is that users are able to utilize their smartwatch in order to display the barcodes to be scanned so that the phone is not required to display the cards. As one of the most comprehensive apps available that encompasses nearly all cards including identification, payments, and even tickets, Cards is an app that is highly recommended for those who wish to utilize their phone as a substitute to the physical cards in their wallet.</p>\n<p>For those who are looking for ways in which to use the mobile payment feature that is offered on their device, this article discusses the ways in which users can load their cards onto the phones to use at applicable POS systems. On both the Android and iOS devices, the NFC technology enables users to substitute the physical cards in their wallets which this article discusses how to do so. With the apps listed in this article, users are able to not only load their payment cards to the apps, but also their loyalty and points card as well so that they can apply discounts or gain rewards for their purchases.</p>\n"},"date":"2018-04-20T08:29:21","date_gmt":"2018-04-20T08:29:21","excerpt":{"protected":false,"rendered":"<p>A method of payments that is quickly growing in popularity is through loading credit and debit cards on the mobile phone and then using the NFC technology to tap the device on point of sale (POS) systems.

href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/rosetta-stone-learn-language/id435588892?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>, <a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.com.rosettastone.mobile.CoursePlayer\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>Before we all had a smartphone in our pockets Rosetta Stone was the most popular tool for learning languages at home, you signed up and they sent you a pack including DVDs and fun activities to help you practice. Fast forward to 2018 and you can now have the complete Rosetta Stone package on your phone. Rosetta Stone trains you to associate words with imagery in real-life situations. Rosetta’s aim is to teach you a new language in a natural way, building your confidence to speak your new language in any situation.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/EBmy7Qw2HpI\">NEW RS APP PREVIEW phone 1920&#215;1080</a></h4>\n<p>http://www.rosettastone.com http://www.facebook.com/RosettaStone http://twitter.com/rosettastone http://www.youtube.com/user/rosettastone</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<p>In each lesson, students match photographs to phrases and vocabulary words and are tasked at certain intervals with pronouncing them. As they progress, the app offers less guidance to encourage independent comprehension and improved fluency. The repetitive lessons encourage users to naturally pronounce words without prompting. Upon completing a lesson, students receive a percentage score factoring correct and incorrect answers, as well as those skipped (which is not recommended). The first lesson is free, but a subscription to 5 levels of any language costs $199.99.</p>\n<h3>Busuu – Easy Language Learning (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/busuu-learn-languages/id379968583?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>, <a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.busuu.android.enc\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>If you’re looking for a less costly option than Rosetta Stone, Busuu covers the four mainstay languages–English, Spanish, French, German–and nine more that aren’t as common in a primary school setting.  Busuu provides you with a customizable experience right from the beginning, starting with a quick test to assess your current knowledge of your chosen language and will then recommend the perfect level to get you on the road to language success. With lessons as short as 10 minutes Busuu is easy to fit into your everyday life and makes this the perfect app for anyone who cannot commit to a longer time commitment. The app quizzes users during the learning process with drag-and-drop exercises, hangman-like spelling puzzles, and more. Busuu includes a fluency tracker, making it easier than ever to monitor the progress you are making and stay motivated. Users can upgrade to the Premium version with an in-app purchase, and the most popular option costs $49.99 per year.</p>\n<h3>Duolingo (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/duolingo/id570060128?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>, <a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.duolingo\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>Duolingo has become one of the most popular language apps on the market and for a very good reason, with personalized lessons and an easy to use interface it is an obvious first choice. The idea behind Duolingo is to make learning a new language feel like playing a game, rather than a task. You can practice your reading and writing skills through a rage of different activities and using the intelligent chatbot you can test your conversation skills. Lessons are broken down into manageable chunks, making it easy to fit learning a new language into your daily routine. There’s also Duo the friendly owl to keep you motivated and giving you the push we all sometimes need.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/qu0ALDUBgjw\">Duolingo Android Preview (English)</a></h4>\n<p>Find out why Duolingo is the #1 way to learn Spanish, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean and Chinese.

On app installation, Yomu EBook Reader gives you a few free classic texts for free so as to test out the readability and utilities of the app.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/H8kb2HfqZWE\">YouTube</a></h4>\n<p>No Description</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<p>The text quality is excellent, as is the page turning and overall feel of the reading experience. This might sound like a strange metric to consider, but many other EBook readers might struggle in this department, offering limited quality or perhaps giving users a clunky interface. Not so in Yomu EBook Reader.</p>\n<p>Not only can you simply read easily and excellently with Yomu EBook Reader, you can also use find and look up for within the text itself. The app allows you to search for individual words or phrases within your current text, making it easier than ever to find that one amazing quote you can’t remember in Game of Thrones.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">The app allows you to search for individual words or phrases within your current text, making it easier than ever to find that one amazing quote you can’t remember in Game of Thrones.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>To make it even more interesting, the app allows you to freely edit text and titles, allowing you to make custom designations for individual books within your collection. Similarly, you can make custom annotations easily and fluidly from within individual texts at the click of a button, allowing you to make notes for yourself on future re-reads, or to save some piece of information for later research.</p>\n<p>With any EBook reader, it is important to be able to source texts from a variety of locations; thankfully, Yomu EBook Reader excels in this department, allowing you to add EBook files from wherever you like, including your own dropbox and googledrive.</p>\n<p>What makes Yomu EBook Reader such an interesting app is not so much that it does its job so well – and it does! – It’s that, despite being just a simple utility app, it manages to include so many other functions as to enable a user complete control of their reading experience.</p>\n<p>Whether you want to read, annotate, edit or customize in whatever ways, Yomu EBook Reader has you covered.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">Whether you want to read, annotate, edit or customize in whatever ways, Yomu EBook Reader has you covered.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>Yomu EBook Reader puts Kindle users to shame, offering a variety of niche custom alterations and opportunities to make the reading experience as pleasant as possible. Not only is Yomu EBook Reader a great reading app, it’s a great example of a utility app being done perfectly.</p>\n<a name=\"review\"></a><div class=\"review\">\n\t\t<h2>Our Rating</h2>\n\t\t<div class=\"mainbox\">\n\t\t\t<div class=\"procons\">\n\t<table>\n\t\t\t<tr><th>Pros</th><th>Cons</th></tr>\n\t\t\t<tr><td>Excellent editing abilities for such a simple app. The reading interface is excellent.</td><td>Some small parts of the UI can feel a bit disorientating at the beginning.</td></tr>\n\t\t\t\n\t\t\t</table>\n\t\t\t</div>\n <table class=\"review_grid\">\n <tr><td class=\"review_label\">Rating</td><td><div class=\"rating_bg\" style=\"width: 450px\"><span class=\"rating_bar\" style=\"width: 405px;\"><span class=\"rating_bar_content\">9/10</span></span></div></td></tr>\n </table>\n\t\t</div></div>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 562211012) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-6f54f4eb48928077a5b2b3bab887311e appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fyomu-ebook-reader%2Fid562211012%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Yomu EBook Reader\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/yomu-ebook-reader/id562211012?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is3-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple118/v4/40/07/48/4007487f-8d3f-d6e2-2a52-65ec30622f5d/AppIcon-1x_U007emarketing-0-0-GLES2_U002c0-512MB-sRGB-0-0-0-85-220-0-0-0-6.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"Yomu EBook Reader\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/yomu-ebook-reader/id562211012?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-6f54f4eb48928077a5b2b3bab887311e .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-6f54f4eb48928077a5b2b3bab887311e .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/yomu-ebook-reader/id562211012?mt=8\" title=\"Yomu EBook Reader\" class=\"apptitle\">Yomu EBook Reader</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/beat-raess/id381075846?mt=8\">Beat Raess</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"4.2 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars40\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n"},"date":"2018-04-17T13:39:53","date_gmt":"2018-04-17T13:39:53","excerpt":{"protected":false,"rendered":"<p>Yomu EBook Reader is an Ebook reading app that gives you everything you’d need to read a book on your phone, plus more you didn’t even know about.</p>\n"},"featured_media":80351,"format":"standard","guid":{"rendered":"http://backend.appolicious.com/?p=80346"},"id":80346,"link":"https://backend.appolicious.com/yomu-ebook-reader-everything-you-could-need-and-more/","modified":"2018-04-17T13:43:51","modified_gmt":"2018-04-17T13:43:51","ping_status":"open","slug":"yomu-ebook-reader-everything-you-could-need-and-more","status":"publish","sticky":false,"template":"","title":{"rendered":"Yomu EBook Reader &#8211; Everything You Could Need, And More"},"type":"post"}},{"authorDescription":"Elijah is a man who can&amp;#39;t stop talking about games, geeky things, and to the chagrin of his colleagues, horrible puns.

/>\n</div>\n<p><strong>Alex Gitlin:</strong> O<span style=\"font-size: medium;\">ne day our Founder &amp; CEO, Amit On, was in a very important meeting and his mobile phone rang. Sounds fairly normal right? Well the number was unknown, and Amit had to decide on the spot if it was important enough to answer. Amit answered the call, only to find out it was a spam call&#8230; That was the moment when Amit decided that it makes no sense not having information about the person calling you, when it’s already publicly available. Think about this scenario… Someone knocks on your door at home and puts their hand on the peep-hole. It might be a nice girl-scout selling cookies, but on the other part of the spectrum it could be a burglar. Would you open the door? Of Course not. So why is it the 21st century and we are not able to know who’s the caller behind each phone call? After this pivotal moment, Amit used smart data to create proprietary algorithms which are now the backbone of <em>CallApp</em>.</span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: What challenges did your team face developing an app to enhance a feature, Caller ID, that so many take for granted?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG:</strong> <span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">These aren’t the beginning days of Caller ID anymore, no longer can you just have a textual name based incoming call screen. This is what sets us apart from our industry contemporaries. We truly provide the best “Caller ID” space available on the market. We’re the whole package, providing a full-blown communication ID including identification for phone calls, text messages, WhatsApp messages, etc. </span></span></p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/0Ejouy79AMY\">📞 Caller ID &#038; Block, Call Recorder, Phone Number Lookup &#038; Detailed Contacts📞</a></h4>\n<p>Download today for Free: callapp.com/sp</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<p><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">It’s a known fact that people like personalization and that’s exactly what we give them. Our Caller ID gives you a fully personalized experience about the person calling: the name, mutual friends, photos. It’s different for each person and that’s what makes us stand out. Sure, the name will be the same, but the rest of the details are customized to the user.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: <em>CallApp</em> is one of many apps now that&#8217;s in active development while available for users. How has this approach of early access influenced the app&#8217;s design?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\"><em>CallApp</em> is ever changing and ever growing. It will always be in development no matter how big we get. Here at <em>CallApp</em> we’re always iterating based on User wishes and the outcome of these wishes. We don’t want just “ok” features, </span></span><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">every feature is fully tested and made sure to be of highest quality. Anything less than perfect for our users is not ok for us. We never release a new feature just so we can put it on our roster. </span><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\"> Our Users come first, being the reason why we will always be in development.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: In what ways has this method altered your team&#8217;s approach from a traditional development process? </div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">Maybe the traditional development process is good for some apps, but when you truly want to be the best in your industry this simply just doesn’t cut it. There are apps out there who release updates every couple of months, this isn’t us. Our development cycles are much shorter, we’re releasing new versions multiple times a month. The majority of our company consists of a first-class development team. With this, we’re able to do everything in house and release more often.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: How has active development and immediate community feedback guided <em>CallApp</em>&#8216;s marketing?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">Just like with any company, regardless of the size, we need to be changing and adapting to fit our users’ needs. Everything we do here at <em>CallApp</em> can be measured, we don’t rely on ideas that we think “are good ideas”. We are constantly A/B testing, which helps us improve in every aspect. With A/B testing, we know exactly what our users want and when they want it.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: What&#8217;s informed your team&#8217;s approach to shielding users from telemarketers?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">We are not a team of just average developers. The leads of our Research and Development team have all had lead roles in their country’s Special Intelligence Technology Units. We didn’t just take an open source Caller ID &amp; Call Blocking code someone already created. Instead we took smart data to create proprietary algorithms which are now the backbone of <em>CallApp</em>. We don’t stop there… what makes our application so great is that our users are actively helping in blocking calls and tagging spammers. One reason people download our app is to get rid of telemarketers, therefore it’s known our users want to be shielded. With this being said, they take an active part in our service by flagging telemarketers, so others can gain the benefit of not getting hit with spam calls.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: How did your team find was the best way to monetize a free app like <em>CallApp</em>?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">It’s very tough to monetize free apps in today’s world. We think we are one of the few apps that were actually able to crack this. We are always reiterating our business model in order to maximize monetization without hurting the User Experience. We’re always trying different models. If the channels work [then] we keep them, if not we move onto the next one.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: <em>CallApp</em> is currently an Android exclusive. What drew you to Google&#8217;s platform, and is there a chance iOS users may reap the benefits of <em>CallApp</em> later down the line?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">As we said before, our Users come first. Now why would we want to provide them with “ok” apps on two different operating systems? Instead we want to deliver the best product possible, so for right now we’re focusing on Android. Android currently has almost 90% market share, so we thought this was the better operating system to start on. Of course, in the future we plan to be on iOS as well.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: Recording conversations is a useful tool, but can also be a privacy/legal concern. How has your team addressed the gnarlier aspects on that front?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">As the first ever app to have Caller ID and Call Recording in the same app, we had to do a lot of research on this subject. In the finished product, the user is obligated to accept and agree prior to enabling the call recording feature inside the app. <em>CallApp</em> doesn’t store the recordings on the <em>CallApp</em> server either, it’s only stored on the user’s device, the user has full control to save and delete the files.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: What&#8217;s the most important thing you&#8217;d say the team has learned over the course of<em> CallApp</em>&#8216;s development?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong>T<span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">he most important thing we have learned is good ideas don’t necessarily equal successful ideas. Everything we do here is tracked thanks to advanced analytics programs. This has helped us realize that not every idea we have will perform well. When the idea isn’t performing, we accept this and try to figure out how to improve it. When the idea is performing, we don’t just let it sit idle, we develop ways to make it even stronger. We don’t have nearly 40 Million Users just by a fluke, everything we do here is deeply planned and carefully implemented.</span></span></p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.callapp.contacts) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-db2875e748a69715f44ad27e6fd35398 googleplay colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.callapp.contacts&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"CallApp: Caller ID, Block &amp; Phone Call Recorder\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.callapp.contacts\"><img src=\"//lh3.googleusercontent.com/tKCHMOQyCDL3RiwPAKpn3uVzKKub0J-lMY1Z4e6Gaf6PJFgYUqJZPF2MoV185yflXg8=s180\" alt=\"CallApp: Caller ID, Block &amp; Phone Call Recorder\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.callapp.contacts\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-db2875e748a69715f44ad27e6fd35398 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-db2875e748a69715f44ad27e6fd35398 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.callapp.contacts\" title=\"CallApp: Caller ID, Block &amp; Phone Call Recorder\" class=\"apptitle\">CallApp: Caller ID, Block &amp; Phone Call Recorder</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/dev?id=6882074241033486164\">CallApp Caller ID &amp; Call Recording Contacts</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n"},"date":"2018-04-14T10:48:42","date_gmt":"2018-04-14T10:48:42","excerpt":{"protected":false,"rendered":"<p>Who is that calling you?

be unalterable for use of contracts. The problem lies in trying to turn one type of document into a PDF so that, when you send it, that nefarious recipient doesn’t change the text.</p>\n<p>In Windows, you can change a word document to a PDF easily enough, but there is essentially no way to do this when using a mobile device.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/tSVIEVMx8Fw\">YouTube</a></h4>\n<p>No Description</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<p>In today’s modern world, more people are using mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones, than ever before. Gone are the days of hulking around a giant laptop, instead today’s modern businessman needs to use his phone on the go.</p>\n<p>Despite this, people are still forced to shift to their PC if they want to create, edit or send PDFs easily.</p>\n<p>With <a href=\"https://pdf.wondershare.com\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">PDFelement</a>, that has all changed.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">With PDFelement, that has all changed.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>PDFelement may seem a simple, limited-in-features app, but that’s because it is a utility app. You don’t want your utility applications to do anything but what they say on the tin – anything else is just further complications.</p>\n<p>PDFelement allows you to fully edit and customize your PDFs, coming pre-equipped with Font recognition and the ability to change whole details far more easily than when using Adobe Reader on your PC.</p>\n<p>Even more usefully, you can highlight individual sections of the document, useful when you’re disputing a legal clause or you just want to highlight something important in a video game manual.</p>\n<p><img class=\"alignright size-full wp-image-80320\" src=\"https://appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/pdfelement2.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"515\" srcset=\"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/pdfelement2.jpg 1024w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/pdfelement2-300x151.jpg 300w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/pdfelement2-768x386.jpg 768w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/pdfelement2-350x176.jpg 350w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/pdfelement2-830x417.jpg 830w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n<p>Alongside this, taking directly from the most commonly used Adobe Reader feature, you can fill and sign forms with ease.</p>\n<p>Another options that absolutely dwarfs the capability of other PDF apps, even the ones available for PC, is the ability to take a photo using your phone’s camera and convert <em>that </em>to a PDF! This allows you to quickly make PDFs on the go, including that hand written legal document you hope will hold up in court – it’s even signed!</p>\n<p>To allow complete usability for your PDFs, you have a huge amount of sharing options available – you can sync the app to Dropbox, Google Drive and a myriad of others, allowing you to send and share your PDFs to whomever you wish.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">To allow complete usability for your PDFs, you have a huge amount of sharing options available – you can sync the app to Dropbox, Google Drive and a myriad of others, allowing you to send and share your PDFs to whomever you wish.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>PDFelement manages to cram literally everything you could possible need in a PDF app into one handy, minimalist program. It’s hard to imagine any other feature that a PDF user could need; from alteration and sharing, all the way to actual creation of new PDFs – as well as storing your signature for easy placement on documents – PDFelement has you completely covered.</p>\n<p>As a simplistic utility app, PDFelement has everything you need to utilise PDFs properly, whether they be for personal or professional use.

a highly recommended app which lets users interact with the stars through the use of their camera. For example, users can identify various celestial bodies by simply pointing the camera at the sky at which point the app will show the constellation, stars, and planets. Furthermore, by rotating the camera, the app automatically recognizes the different points in the sky and adjusts accordingly. Even in sub-optimal viewing conditions such as with light pollution and a bright sky, the app can still identify different objects. With this, Skyview makes it simple to interact with different elements in the sky through the power of AR that would not be possible otherwise. Beyond just simply naming the objects that are in the sky, the app also has different information such as the location of the Hubble and International Space Station as well as the location of stars at different points in time. As the process of stargazing can be difficult especially in city centers, the app is one that leverages AR to make it easier.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 413936865) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-b839c377bfc156ccca4e877aff526528 appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fskyview-lite%2Fid413936865%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"SkyView® Lite\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skyview-lite/id413936865?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is4-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple118/v4/9e/93/55/9e9355c3-58f4-53e6-557b-ed4aef33fca1/AppIcon-1x_U007emarketing-0-0-GLES2_U002c0-512MB-sRGB-0-0-0-85-220-0-0-0-4.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"SkyView® Lite\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skyview-lite/id413936865?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-b839c377bfc156ccca4e877aff526528 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-b839c377bfc156ccca4e877aff526528 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skyview-lite/id413936865?mt=8\" title=\"SkyView® Lite\" class=\"apptitle\">SkyView® Lite</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/terminal-eleven-llc/id378238417?mt=8\">Terminal Eleven LLC</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"4.6 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars45\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h3>Augment &#8211; 3D Augmented Reality</h3>\n<p>To increase engagement during online sales, Augment is a powerful app which lets users visualize their online purchases at home. For companies that have integrated Augment, consumers are able to get a virtual version of their goods through their device so that they do not have to imagine what it would look like. For the purchaser, a better grasp of the product can be understood as users simply have to point their camera and select the product that they are looking to buy for it to be shown in the physical space. From large furniture to smaller accessories, many products can be displayed in the environment. Furthermore, the app aims to replicate the size and look of the item by being able to turn the product at different angles and even adjust the size automatically depending on where it is placed in the room. On the other hand, companies that utilize Augment are able to convert higher sales as their customers better understand the product prior to placing a purchase, making it one of the best apps in the augmented reality space.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 506463171) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-09d815c808fdcb3667818bcfcb3f073a appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Faugment-3d-augmented-reality%2Fid506463171%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Augment - 3D Augmented Reality\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/augment-3d-augmented-reality/id506463171?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is4-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple128/v4/40/fb/9c/40fb9c13-d7f7-2430-35c9-b4afb24a4dca/mzl.refmftrg.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"Augment - 3D Augmented Reality\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/augment-3d-augmented-reality/id506463171?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-09d815c808fdcb3667818bcfcb3f073a .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-09d815c808fdcb3667818bcfcb3f073a .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/augment-3d-augmented-reality/id506463171?mt=8\" title=\"Augment - 3D Augmented Reality\" class=\"apptitle\">Augment - 3D Augmented Reality</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/augment/id506463174?mt=8\">Augment</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free</span> <div title=\"3 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars30\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h3>iOnRoad &#8211; Augmented Reality Driving</h3>\n<p>To incorporate augmented reality into the process of driving, iOnRoad introduces proprietary algorithms to identify various metrics related to the road. For example, if a camera is mounted on the dashboard to face the front, the app can identify how far the car in front of the user’s vehicle is as well as various indicators. In being able to process information intelligently, drivers can get notifications while they drive in a non-intrusive manner. For example, safety alerts are made possible if a car is driving too close to the vehicle ahead of it. Beyond this, off-road alerts also exist so that if a driver is driving too close to the left or right side of the road, an alert will notify them. Through these features, physical objects on the road are made to interact with virtual elements such as a popup box that hovers over the vehicle ahead of the driver.  Combining factors such as acceleration, highly accurate statistics can be obtained to enhance road safety.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 569507817) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-80fa31589448204921f10961d5bf89b3 appstore colorful deprecated simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fionroad-augmented-reality-driving%2Fid569507817%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"iOnRoad - Augmented Reality Driving\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ionroad-augmented-reality-driving/id569507817?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is1-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple3/v4/43/39/6a/43396a0a-3b94-cecc-79ee-3f8a3bf958e3/mzl.xkrndbac.jpg/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"iOnRoad - Augmented Reality Driving\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ionroad-augmented-reality-driving/id569507817?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-80fa31589448204921f10961d5bf89b3 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-80fa31589448204921f10961d5bf89b3 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ionroad-augmented-reality-driving/id569507817?mt=8\" title=\"iOnRoad - Augmented Reality Driving\" class=\"apptitle\">iOnRoad - Augmented Reality Driving</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/ionroad-ltd/id569501562?mt=8\">iOnRoad Ltd</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: $0.99</span> <div title=\"2 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars20\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h3>Pokémon GO (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pok%C3%A9mon-go/id1094591345?mt=8\">iOS</a>)</h3>\n<p>One of the fastest growing mobile games has been Pokémon GO which has recently caught the interest of millions of players around the world. Based on catching Pokémon, the game has players going to different locations to throw virtual Pokeballs at different creatures to capture them. To introduce the elements of augmented reality, the creatures are placed in the surrounding environment which players can then interact with. Furthermore, players can use their existing captures to battle other Pokémon with various swipes and different interactions that combines the animation of the game with the physical surroundings. Utilizing both location and camera based gaming, the game introduces a new degree of reality that has not been seen before. With the high level of augmented reality that is integrated, the level of entertainment that Pokémon go provides is unprecedented when compared to other, more static games.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 1094591345) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-ac8b79b44b719034fd275c96a2f2316a appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fpok%25C3%25A9mon-go%2Fid1094591345%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Pokémon GO\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pok%C3%A9mon-go/id1094591345?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is5-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple125/v4/d4/86/8f/d4868f97-ac5d-20cb-972f-30e168f4d065/AppIcon-1x_U007emarketing-85-220-0-8.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"Pokémon GO\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pok%C3%A9mon-go/id1094591345?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-ac8b79b44b719034fd275c96a2f2316a .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-ac8b79b44b719034fd275c96a2f2316a .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pok%C3%A9mon-go/id1094591345?mt=8\" title=\"Pokémon GO\" class=\"apptitle\">Pokémon GO</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/niantic-inc/id1037205060?mt=8\">Niantic, Inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"3.9 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars40\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h3>ARBasketball &#8211; Augmented Reality Basketball Game</h3>\n<p>Another game that leverages augmented reality is ARBasketball which allows players to throw virtual balls at a basketball hoop.

data-colorscheme=\"light\" data-layout=\"button_count\" data-action=\"like\" data-share=\"false\"></div></div></div><p>In honor of #FoodAllergyAwarenessWeek, I set out to review the best mobile apps for people like myself who suffer from severe food allergies. It&#8217;s a near-invisible but deeply troubling problem that&#8217;s unfortunately growing in prominence over the past two decades. As such, you&#8217;d think in a market full of niche apps <strong>so</strong> wide that we have <a href=\"https://backend.appolicious.com/augmenting-your-reality-holo-with-arkit-interview/\">holograms</a> and <a href=\"https://backend.appolicious.com/the-best-meditation-apps-you-should-have-on-your-iphone-to-find-your-peace-of-mind/\">meditation guidance</a>&#8230; that you&#8217;d figure we have plenty great food allergy apps, right?</p>\n<p>You&#8217;d be wrong.</p>\n<p>I downloaded some of the reportedly best apps for someone with my condition, and here&#8217;s what I found. I&#8217;ve included both two that you should absolutely avoid, and the two most useful apps I discovered.</p>\n<h2><strong>The Worst:</strong></h2>\n<h3>For Kids &#8212; <em>Allergy Reality</em></h3>\n<p>This is one of several apps that aims to educate your whole family about what is and isn&#8217;t safe to eat. It does this with a series of mini-games with varying amounts of relevance, with the best being the simple act of asking players to pick out what food is or isn&#8217;t safe based on their allergy, while the worst is an infuriating matching game more likely to annoy a child than inform them.</p>\n<p>Then there&#8217;s the one asking kids to spell out an allergen&#8217;s name in a reversed form of hangman. Nevermind most of the children who will use this app won&#8217;t know how to spell &#8220;BRAZILIAN NUTS&#8221; and also for the record, they&#8217;re referred to typically as just &#8220;Brazil Nuts&#8221;.</p>\n<p>To be fair, I discovered another good one where the player has to pick out from what ingredients weren&#8217;t safe from an ingredient list on the back of a box, but there&#8217;s something you may be noticing &#8211; the best mini-games available are things you could <em>just do at home with actual food products</em>. The rest of the mini-games border on bizarre and outright ill-conceived. There&#8217;s no relevant lesson here that necessitates downloading the app. But hey, it&#8217;s got a theme song and some really strange-yet-boring mini-games, and apparently that&#8217;s warranted it being a popular download.</p>\n<h3>For Adults &#8212; <em>Spokin</em></h3>\n<p>Did you need a new social media platform that&#8217;s really hard to navigate, basically just doubles as an ad platform for a few (your mileage may vary, I saw mostly the same one over and over again) allergen-free brands? I didn&#8217;t, but apparently somebody thought we needed one. It seems no one told the developers of <em>Spokin</em> that there&#8217;s already dozens of Facebook groups dedicated to this. While there&#8217;s clearly good intentions behind this one, it&#8217;s only slightly less irrelevant than <em>Allergy Reality</em>.</p>\n<h2><strong>The Best:</strong></h2>\n<h3>For Kids &#8212; <em>Wizdy Diner</em></h3>\n<p>Apparently odd names are just a rule of thumb for allergy apps, but at least<em> Wizdy</em> offers a solid effort when it comes to conveying how easily allergens can slip in when you&#8217;re eating out at a restaurant. The core gameplay is a typical <em>Diner Dash</em> clone, except now you have to make sure to catch every person&#8217;s allergens before telling the chef what to cook up. The parade of customers gets faster and faster, increasing the odds some of your customers might be sent to the hospital if you aren&#8217;t careful. Along the way, you upgrade your diner and have to choose what food you have on offer &#8211; giving kids a light bit of management, in addition to consequences for if they don&#8217;t have allergen-friendly food on the menu.</p>\n<p>The game itself is basic, but achieves its goals better than any other child-friendly app that I tried. It&#8217;s genuinely possible to give your customers the wrong food order a few times, and the gravity of your actions &#8211; while not as severe as they would be in real life &#8211; are made clear. There&#8217;s even a secondary mini-game on the main menu about educating kids how to use an epinephrine shot. It&#8217;s not the most<em> exciting</em> game, but it translates the risks of food allergies at restaurants with the clear, easily understood language of gameplay mechanics. Edutainment done right.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 1059091444?ls=1&amp;mt=8) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fwizdy-diner-food-allergy-game%2Fid1059091444%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wizdy-diner-food-allergy-game/id1059091444?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is4-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple118/v4/6d/98/99/6d9899b3-23d6-183f-0e2a-c6f0d5ca2ec0/mzl.ojuiablb.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wizdy-diner-food-allergy-game/id1059091444?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wizdy-diner-food-allergy-game/id1059091444?mt=8\" title=\"Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game\" class=\"apptitle\">Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/lifeguard-games-inc/id819845868?mt=8\">LifeGuard Games, Inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-8a15fd8b4fc1994b5fb2221e529aa8c1 googleplay colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid\"><img src=\"//lh3.googleusercontent.com/HNk0uXtkknLuSGcTwvBEoX414xdlx2tmQCCsh0Iu_CDtK6U-AwYDX10arff6C7GOyg=s180\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-8a15fd8b4fc1994b5fb2221e529aa8c1 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-8a15fd8b4fc1994b5fb2221e529aa8c1 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid\" title=\"Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game\" class=\"apptitle\">Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=LifeGuard+Games,+Inc.\">LifeGuard Games, Inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h3>For Adults &#8212; <em>ipiit: The Food Ambassador</em></h3>\n<p>Yes, that&#8217;s actually it&#8217;s name, but <em>ipiit</em> is one of the more useful apps available. It&#8217;s a barcode scanner that can quickly inform you about many common products, and is supported in part by a public database that its users grow by taking pictures of products. The scanner function works fine so long as it knows the product, and if it doesn&#8217;t, you can easily take a few pictures and send it off to the app&#8217;s developers. It&#8217;s a brilliant use of crowd-sourcing that makes perfect sense. You can even specify what your allergen is &#8211; but that&#8217;s where things go downhill for an otherwise solid app.</p>\n<p>You see,<em> ipiit</em>, in all its unpronounceable wisdom, doesn&#8217;t feature support for all top 8 major allergens. It can tell you if the food has almonds or gluten, but there&#8217;s a laundry list of allergens that need added, and clearly the developers know this because there&#8217;s already an automated list for requested allergens. Now, I understand that in this case, it&#8217;s a daunting task to keep up with all the allergens in food, but the top 8 should all be in there. By offering such a narrow scope, <em>ipiit</em> feels more like a band-aid in its current state, which is a waste considering all the effort put in. It might spare you one or two phone calls at the grocery store when researching a product on the shelf, but it most certainly needs to grow if someone outside of its current allergen listings is ever to use it. It&#8217;s a great app, but there&#8217;s way too much missing here.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 536930786?mt=8) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-46935692acebb3817389f62c7f6487b2 appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets%2Fid536930786%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"ipiit - Grocery Scanner for Food Allergies &amp; Diets\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets/id536930786?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is5-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple127/v4/b6/c0/fa/b6c0faa9-7d3e-a7b1-7141-9fca5949c9a7/mzl.ggvqgstb.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"ipiit - Grocery Scanner for Food Allergies &amp; Diets\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets/id536930786?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-46935692acebb3817389f62c7f6487b2 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-46935692acebb3817389f62c7f6487b2 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets/id536930786?mt=8\" title=\"ipiit - Grocery Scanner for Food Allergies &amp; Diets\" class=\"apptitle\">ipiit - Grocery Scanner for Food Allergies & Diets</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/ipiit-inc/id536930889?mt=8\">ipiit, inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free</span> <div title=\"4.1 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars40\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.ipiit.ipiit&amp;hl=en_US) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-30e9bf82c9edf9049a203895b6ac7a6b googleplay colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.ipiit.ipiit&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"ipiit - Scan Food Ingredients\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ipiit.ipiit\"><img src=\"//lh3.ggpht.com/dLhoKPOMjrLEVUYHMOyBvIYcgqg3L5JsSvS7Sakc0Ec0EsjmZSOXY6lXpxLg8SD6UDY=s180\" alt=\"ipiit - Scan Food Ingredients\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ipiit.ipiit\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-30e9bf82c9edf9049a203895b6ac7a6b .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-30e9bf82c9edf9049a203895b6ac7a6b .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ipiit.ipiit\" title=\"ipiit - Scan Food Ingredients\" class=\"apptitle\">ipiit - Scan Food Ingredients</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=ipiit\">ipiit</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free</span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<p>Now, I want to be clear that these aren&#8217;t only the apps I tried, they&#8217;re just the most notable. A lot of the apps I tried were either a mediocre alternative of one of the apps listed above, or ineffectual at helping with the realities someone with food allergies faces. As food allergies fast become one of the biggest medical issues of our generation, but we can and should be trying to make things easier for those that suffer from them. While there are social circles and websites that help, that doesn&#8217;t mean mobile apps shouldn&#8217;t be offering decent alternatives. We need to be able to find a restaurant that&#8217;s safe to eat at, if there&#8217;s been cross-contamination alerts or ingredient changes in food, and most importantly of all &#8211; to know if a product is safe regardless of when customer service hours for the manufacturer run. These are basic quality of life needs that developers can help ease. I hope more answer the call, and present better options for our peers, and the generations to come.</p>\n<p>If you&#8217;ve heard of any great allergy apps we missed, be sure to let us know <a href=\"https://twitter.com/appolicious?lang=en\">@Appolicious</a>!</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n"},"date":"2018-05-18T01:46:02","date_gmt":"2018-05-18T01:46:02","excerpt":{"protected":false,"rendered":"<p>In a world full of life threatening food allergies, there should be better apps for families and allergic adults to rely on.</p>\n"},"featured_media":80498,"format":"standard","guid":{"rendered":"https://appolicious.com/?p=80307"},"id":80307,"link":"https://backend.appolicious.com/the-quest-for-quality-food-allergy-apps-foodallergyawarenessweek/","modified":"2018-05-18T01:46:02","modified_gmt":"2018-05-18T01:46:02","ping_status":"open","slug":"the-quest-for-quality-food-allergy-apps-foodallergyawarenessweek","status":"publish","sticky":false,"template":"","title":{"rendered":"The Quest for Quality Food Allergy Apps &#8211; #FoodAllergyAwarenessWeek"},"type":"post"}},{"authorDescription":"Sam is a YouTuber, Streamer &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; Games Journalist.

rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>As the Airbnb of car rentals, Turo is an app that facilitates the renting of cars between drivers. Without the need to pay significant fees for a vehicle as with traditional car rental locations, the app lets users rent different cars in the local area or in areas where the user will be which makes it perfect for those who are traveling. With so many vehicles available for rent through the app, users are able to specify the kind of cars that they want including features and geographical location so that they do not have to search through each individual post. Given the range of available cars from daily drivers to other, more luxurious cars, Turo is one of the best apps available for those who are looking to rent a car at a flexible duration and a highly competitive price.</p>\n<h3>Zipcar (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/zipcar/id329384702?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>/<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zc.android\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>Zipcar is an app that lets users have greater flexibility when renting a car compared to Turo. Prior to using the app, users need to first apply for an account at which point a Zipcar card will be delivered to them if approved. With the app, all that a user must do to rent a car is select how long they would like to rent the car for, whether it is by the hour or the day, choose from the selection of vehicles which are owned by private owners instead of a company, and then the time to pick up the car. Once a car has been selected and the time booked, users can then go to where their car is located and use the card they received to unlock the door.  This card will then be used to lock and unlock the doors during the rental process while the key remains in the car at all times. As one of the most cost-effective and flexible tools that help users get access to thousands of available vehicles, Zipcar is a highly recommended app for on-demand vehicles.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/BNhQYXChFBM\">How Sharing a Car with Zipcar Works (US Version) | Zipcar</a></h4>\n<p>http://pixvid.me/HowItWorksUS Hear from real members how to use Zipcar in just five steps.

What differentiates the app from other car rental alternatives is that there is a greater degree of customer service such as 24/7 cancelation, modifications, and upgrades. One of the best aspects of Avis Car Rental is that roadside assistance is available immediately for those who use the service so that users do not have to be concerned with previous drivers who may have damaged the vehicle. With these features, Avis Car Rental is a great app for those who wish to rent cars from a company instead of through private car owners.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/0BsPKTXHQsg\">The New Avis App</a></h4>\n<p>Check out the functions of the all new Avis app here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/avis-car-rental/id308342527?mt=8</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<h3>Enterprise Rent-A-Car (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/enterprise-rent-a-car/id1020641417?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>/<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ehi.enterprise.android\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>One of the easiest tools that can be used to rent cars is Enterprise Rent-A-Car which lets users rent vehicles right from their device in a matter of minutes.

Although the number of radio channels may be overwhelming in that users are not able to find the stations that they are interested in, one of the best aspects about Audials is that users can enter in the musicians or genre of music that they like while the app then returns the recommended selection so that users do not have to find the stations manually themselves.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/MEVemDqpfvI\">Audials Radio Mobile App &#8211; Over 80,000+ Radio Stations on your Mobile Device!</a></h4>\n<p>Today we take a look at the New Mobile App Audials Radio, an Amazing Radio App that lets you listen to over 80,000+ Radio Stations &#038; 100,000+ Podcasts on the go for Free!

Beyond this, the app also encompasses many of the common features that are familiar among other radio apps such as the ability to record the station and setting it as an alarm clock so that none of these functions are lost when using this specific app.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">For those who are looking for mobile tools that enable them to listen to the radio while on-the-go, Audials is one of the most comprehensive apps in the mobile space for all radio needs.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>Despite the app having one of the larger selections in terms of radio stations than many other alternatives available, there are many comparable apps on the Google Play Store that are more popular such as Tunein Radio which can make it difficult for Audials to stand out from the crowd. As a result, many people may not know of the app given the competitive landscape of radio apps among Android devices. However, Audials aims to differentiate itself by offering more than just simple radio stations as with other radio apps, but rather introduces additional elements to include over 260,000 podcasts for nearly every category available which adds to the breadth of its scope. In offering podcasts that range from tech to comedy, there is something of interest for every listener, making it an app that is suitable not only for older listeners, but one that can accommodate the taste of nearly any demographic.</p>\n<p><img class=\"alignright size-full wp-image-80527\" src=\"https://appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"607\" srcset=\"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials.jpg 1024w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials-300x178.jpg 300w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials-768x455.jpg 768w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials-350x207.jpg 350w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials-130x78.jpg 130w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/audials-830x492.jpg 830w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n<p>For those who are looking for mobile tools that enable them to listen to the radio while on-the-go, Audials is one of the most comprehensive apps in the mobile space for all radio needs.

href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/motivate-daily-motivation/id1068278823?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>)</h3>\n<p>While seeking fresh, inspirational messages on a daily basis can be time consuming, Motivate: Daily Motivation is an app that quickly curates motivational content into a single source.  From videos to quotes and even audio files, users of the app are able to receive motivational content through a clean interface that integrates various images with the message. Furthermore, as motivation stems from a broad spectrum for different people, various categories are made available ranging from courage, potential, mindset, and many more. Given that so many quotes are made available which can be difficult to read and follow, one of the best features associated with Motivate is that users are able to save the content to be read or watched later. In doing so, no important content is missed and can always be referred to at a later time if needed. With so many different media formats that are updated on a regular basis, Motivate is a highly recommended app for those who wish to receive a list of motivational quotes, videos, and audio files in a single place.</p>\n<h3>Fabulous: Motivate Me! Meditate, Relax, Sleep (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fabulous-motivate-me/id1203637303?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>/<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.thefabulous.app&amp;hl=en\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>Although being motivated is essential to achieving goals, what is more important than simply remaining motivated is to actually take action. With this in mind, Fabulous is an app that helps users enforce effective goals and then offer motivation throughout a 19 day period so that they become habits. For example, if a user had the goal of eating vegetables each day but found it difficult to maintain motivation over a longer period of time, the app would offer reminders, motivational quotes, and even tags that show what the end goal is such as to lose weight.

that needs to be taken is to go into the Settings app and then select Wallet &amp; Apple Pay. After that, users can select Add Credit or Debit Card at the top of the screen at which point they are able to enter in the card details to the app. Instead of having to enter in all of the digits that are associated with the card, users can simply use the scanning method which then uses the camera to automatically extract the relevant information on the card so that users do not have to enter it in manually. Once the card has been verified and added, users need to enter in the verification code that is sent either through text or their email. Upon doing so, the card has now been added and is ready to be used with POS systems that are compatible with Apple Pay. Users can then go into the Wallet app at which point the card should appear there and be ready to be used. The quickest way to then access the card to make a payment is to double click the home button at which point the card will appear and then users can make purchases by confirming their passcode with their touch ID. As multiple cards can be added, it is a mobile wallet that is highly comprehensive in what users are able to carry.</p>\n<h3>For Google Pay</h3>\n<p>For Android users, mobile card payment first needs to be accessed by downloading the <a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.walletnfcrel\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Google Pay app</a> as opposed to having an app already preloaded onto the phone as with iOS devices. After the app has been downloaded, the app has a walkthrough which helps users get started with loading their cards onto the phone. For users who have already made purchases through their Google account, the cards will already be loaded but for completely new cards, users can load these by entering their card details such as name and card number. After this information has been loaded, users can then select their preferred payment methods. What makes the Google Pay app more intuitive than Apple Pay is that users do not need to do anything special to activate the payment method as all that is required is for users to simply hold up their phone to a payment terminal without opening the app. With this, it becomes as intuitive to use as tapping the card on POS systems without the need to do any extra steps.</p>\n<h3>Cards – Mobile Wallet (<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cardsapp.android\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>Although not strictly just a mobile payments app, Cards is an app that encompasses all of the cards that a user may need on a daily basis. For example, health cards and identification along with payment cards can be kept in the mobile wallet so that no physical wallet is needed to carry the cards. With the cards that are not payment based, barcodes can be presented and scanned by regular POS systems or presented as a normal card. One of the best features of Cards is that users are able to utilize their smartwatch in order to display the barcodes to be scanned so that the phone is not required to display the cards. As one of the most comprehensive apps available that encompasses nearly all cards including identification, payments, and even tickets, Cards is an app that is highly recommended for those who wish to utilize their phone as a substitute to the physical cards in their wallet.</p>\n<p>For those who are looking for ways in which to use the mobile payment feature that is offered on their device, this article discusses the ways in which users can load their cards onto the phones to use at applicable POS systems. On both the Android and iOS devices, the NFC technology enables users to substitute the physical cards in their wallets which this article discusses how to do so. With the apps listed in this article, users are able to not only load their payment cards to the apps, but also their loyalty and points card as well so that they can apply discounts or gain rewards for their purchases.</p>\n"},"date":"2018-04-20T08:29:21","date_gmt":"2018-04-20T08:29:21","excerpt":{"protected":false,"rendered":"<p>A method of payments that is quickly growing in popularity is through loading credit and debit cards on the mobile phone and then using the NFC technology to tap the device on point of sale (POS) systems.

href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/rosetta-stone-learn-language/id435588892?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>, <a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.com.rosettastone.mobile.CoursePlayer\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>Before we all had a smartphone in our pockets Rosetta Stone was the most popular tool for learning languages at home, you signed up and they sent you a pack including DVDs and fun activities to help you practice. Fast forward to 2018 and you can now have the complete Rosetta Stone package on your phone. Rosetta Stone trains you to associate words with imagery in real-life situations. Rosetta’s aim is to teach you a new language in a natural way, building your confidence to speak your new language in any situation.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/EBmy7Qw2HpI\">NEW RS APP PREVIEW phone 1920&#215;1080</a></h4>\n<p>http://www.rosettastone.com http://www.facebook.com/RosettaStone http://twitter.com/rosettastone http://www.youtube.com/user/rosettastone</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<p>In each lesson, students match photographs to phrases and vocabulary words and are tasked at certain intervals with pronouncing them. As they progress, the app offers less guidance to encourage independent comprehension and improved fluency. The repetitive lessons encourage users to naturally pronounce words without prompting. Upon completing a lesson, students receive a percentage score factoring correct and incorrect answers, as well as those skipped (which is not recommended). The first lesson is free, but a subscription to 5 levels of any language costs $199.99.</p>\n<h3>Busuu – Easy Language Learning (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/busuu-learn-languages/id379968583?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>, <a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.busuu.android.enc\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>If you’re looking for a less costly option than Rosetta Stone, Busuu covers the four mainstay languages–English, Spanish, French, German–and nine more that aren’t as common in a primary school setting.  Busuu provides you with a customizable experience right from the beginning, starting with a quick test to assess your current knowledge of your chosen language and will then recommend the perfect level to get you on the road to language success. With lessons as short as 10 minutes Busuu is easy to fit into your everyday life and makes this the perfect app for anyone who cannot commit to a longer time commitment. The app quizzes users during the learning process with drag-and-drop exercises, hangman-like spelling puzzles, and more. Busuu includes a fluency tracker, making it easier than ever to monitor the progress you are making and stay motivated. Users can upgrade to the Premium version with an in-app purchase, and the most popular option costs $49.99 per year.</p>\n<h3>Duolingo (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/duolingo/id570060128?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>, <a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.duolingo\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>Duolingo has become one of the most popular language apps on the market and for a very good reason, with personalized lessons and an easy to use interface it is an obvious first choice. The idea behind Duolingo is to make learning a new language feel like playing a game, rather than a task. You can practice your reading and writing skills through a rage of different activities and using the intelligent chatbot you can test your conversation skills. Lessons are broken down into manageable chunks, making it easy to fit learning a new language into your daily routine. There’s also Duo the friendly owl to keep you motivated and giving you the push we all sometimes need.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/qu0ALDUBgjw\">Duolingo Android Preview (English)</a></h4>\n<p>Find out why Duolingo is the #1 way to learn Spanish, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean and Chinese.

On app installation, Yomu EBook Reader gives you a few free classic texts for free so as to test out the readability and utilities of the app.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/H8kb2HfqZWE\">YouTube</a></h4>\n<p>No Description</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<p>The text quality is excellent, as is the page turning and overall feel of the reading experience. This might sound like a strange metric to consider, but many other EBook readers might struggle in this department, offering limited quality or perhaps giving users a clunky interface. Not so in Yomu EBook Reader.</p>\n<p>Not only can you simply read easily and excellently with Yomu EBook Reader, you can also use find and look up for within the text itself. The app allows you to search for individual words or phrases within your current text, making it easier than ever to find that one amazing quote you can’t remember in Game of Thrones.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">The app allows you to search for individual words or phrases within your current text, making it easier than ever to find that one amazing quote you can’t remember in Game of Thrones.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>To make it even more interesting, the app allows you to freely edit text and titles, allowing you to make custom designations for individual books within your collection. Similarly, you can make custom annotations easily and fluidly from within individual texts at the click of a button, allowing you to make notes for yourself on future re-reads, or to save some piece of information for later research.</p>\n<p>With any EBook reader, it is important to be able to source texts from a variety of locations; thankfully, Yomu EBook Reader excels in this department, allowing you to add EBook files from wherever you like, including your own dropbox and googledrive.</p>\n<p>What makes Yomu EBook Reader such an interesting app is not so much that it does its job so well – and it does! – It’s that, despite being just a simple utility app, it manages to include so many other functions as to enable a user complete control of their reading experience.</p>\n<p>Whether you want to read, annotate, edit or customize in whatever ways, Yomu EBook Reader has you covered.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">Whether you want to read, annotate, edit or customize in whatever ways, Yomu EBook Reader has you covered.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>Yomu EBook Reader puts Kindle users to shame, offering a variety of niche custom alterations and opportunities to make the reading experience as pleasant as possible. Not only is Yomu EBook Reader a great reading app, it’s a great example of a utility app being done perfectly.</p>\n<a name=\"review\"></a><div class=\"review\">\n\t\t<h2>Our Rating</h2>\n\t\t<div class=\"mainbox\">\n\t\t\t<div class=\"procons\">\n\t<table>\n\t\t\t<tr><th>Pros</th><th>Cons</th></tr>\n\t\t\t<tr><td>Excellent editing abilities for such a simple app. The reading interface is excellent.</td><td>Some small parts of the UI can feel a bit disorientating at the beginning.</td></tr>\n\t\t\t\n\t\t\t</table>\n\t\t\t</div>\n <table class=\"review_grid\">\n <tr><td class=\"review_label\">Rating</td><td><div class=\"rating_bg\" style=\"width: 450px\"><span class=\"rating_bar\" style=\"width: 405px;\"><span class=\"rating_bar_content\">9/10</span></span></div></td></tr>\n </table>\n\t\t</div></div>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 562211012) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-6f54f4eb48928077a5b2b3bab887311e appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fyomu-ebook-reader%2Fid562211012%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Yomu EBook Reader\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/yomu-ebook-reader/id562211012?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is3-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple118/v4/40/07/48/4007487f-8d3f-d6e2-2a52-65ec30622f5d/AppIcon-1x_U007emarketing-0-0-GLES2_U002c0-512MB-sRGB-0-0-0-85-220-0-0-0-6.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"Yomu EBook Reader\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/yomu-ebook-reader/id562211012?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-6f54f4eb48928077a5b2b3bab887311e .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-6f54f4eb48928077a5b2b3bab887311e .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/yomu-ebook-reader/id562211012?mt=8\" title=\"Yomu EBook Reader\" class=\"apptitle\">Yomu EBook Reader</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/beat-raess/id381075846?mt=8\">Beat Raess</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"4.2 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars40\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n"},"date":"2018-04-17T13:39:53","date_gmt":"2018-04-17T13:39:53","excerpt":{"protected":false,"rendered":"<p>Yomu EBook Reader is an Ebook reading app that gives you everything you’d need to read a book on your phone, plus more you didn’t even know about.</p>\n"},"featured_media":80351,"format":"standard","guid":{"rendered":"http://backend.appolicious.com/?p=80346"},"id":80346,"link":"https://backend.appolicious.com/yomu-ebook-reader-everything-you-could-need-and-more/","modified":"2018-04-17T13:43:51","modified_gmt":"2018-04-17T13:43:51","ping_status":"open","slug":"yomu-ebook-reader-everything-you-could-need-and-more","status":"publish","sticky":false,"template":"","title":{"rendered":"Yomu EBook Reader &#8211; Everything You Could Need, And More"},"type":"post"}},{"authorDescription":"Elijah is a man who can&amp;amp;amp;#39;t stop talking about games, geeky things, and to the chagrin of his colleagues, horrible puns.

/>\n</div>\n<p><strong>Alex Gitlin:</strong> O<span style=\"font-size: medium;\">ne day our Founder &amp; CEO, Amit On, was in a very important meeting and his mobile phone rang. Sounds fairly normal right? Well the number was unknown, and Amit had to decide on the spot if it was important enough to answer. Amit answered the call, only to find out it was a spam call&#8230; That was the moment when Amit decided that it makes no sense not having information about the person calling you, when it’s already publicly available. Think about this scenario… Someone knocks on your door at home and puts their hand on the peep-hole. It might be a nice girl-scout selling cookies, but on the other part of the spectrum it could be a burglar. Would you open the door? Of Course not. So why is it the 21st century and we are not able to know who’s the caller behind each phone call? After this pivotal moment, Amit used smart data to create proprietary algorithms which are now the backbone of <em>CallApp</em>.</span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: What challenges did your team face developing an app to enhance a feature, Caller ID, that so many take for granted?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG:</strong> <span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">These aren’t the beginning days of Caller ID anymore, no longer can you just have a textual name based incoming call screen. This is what sets us apart from our industry contemporaries. We truly provide the best “Caller ID” space available on the market. We’re the whole package, providing a full-blown communication ID including identification for phone calls, text messages, WhatsApp messages, etc. </span></span></p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/0Ejouy79AMY\">📞 Caller ID &#038; Block, Call Recorder, Phone Number Lookup &#038; Detailed Contacts📞</a></h4>\n<p>Download today for Free: callapp.com/sp</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<p><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">It’s a known fact that people like personalization and that’s exactly what we give them. Our Caller ID gives you a fully personalized experience about the person calling: the name, mutual friends, photos. It’s different for each person and that’s what makes us stand out. Sure, the name will be the same, but the rest of the details are customized to the user.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: <em>CallApp</em> is one of many apps now that&#8217;s in active development while available for users. How has this approach of early access influenced the app&#8217;s design?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\"><em>CallApp</em> is ever changing and ever growing. It will always be in development no matter how big we get. Here at <em>CallApp</em> we’re always iterating based on User wishes and the outcome of these wishes. We don’t want just “ok” features, </span></span><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">every feature is fully tested and made sure to be of highest quality. Anything less than perfect for our users is not ok for us. We never release a new feature just so we can put it on our roster. </span><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\"> Our Users come first, being the reason why we will always be in development.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: In what ways has this method altered your team&#8217;s approach from a traditional development process? </div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">Maybe the traditional development process is good for some apps, but when you truly want to be the best in your industry this simply just doesn’t cut it. There are apps out there who release updates every couple of months, this isn’t us. Our development cycles are much shorter, we’re releasing new versions multiple times a month. The majority of our company consists of a first-class development team. With this, we’re able to do everything in house and release more often.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: How has active development and immediate community feedback guided <em>CallApp</em>&#8216;s marketing?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">Just like with any company, regardless of the size, we need to be changing and adapting to fit our users’ needs. Everything we do here at <em>CallApp</em> can be measured, we don’t rely on ideas that we think “are good ideas”. We are constantly A/B testing, which helps us improve in every aspect. With A/B testing, we know exactly what our users want and when they want it.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: What&#8217;s informed your team&#8217;s approach to shielding users from telemarketers?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">We are not a team of just average developers. The leads of our Research and Development team have all had lead roles in their country’s Special Intelligence Technology Units. We didn’t just take an open source Caller ID &amp; Call Blocking code someone already created. Instead we took smart data to create proprietary algorithms which are now the backbone of <em>CallApp</em>. We don’t stop there… what makes our application so great is that our users are actively helping in blocking calls and tagging spammers. One reason people download our app is to get rid of telemarketers, therefore it’s known our users want to be shielded. With this being said, they take an active part in our service by flagging telemarketers, so others can gain the benefit of not getting hit with spam calls.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: How did your team find was the best way to monetize a free app like <em>CallApp</em>?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">It’s very tough to monetize free apps in today’s world. We think we are one of the few apps that were actually able to crack this. We are always reiterating our business model in order to maximize monetization without hurting the User Experience. We’re always trying different models. If the channels work [then] we keep them, if not we move onto the next one.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: <em>CallApp</em> is currently an Android exclusive. What drew you to Google&#8217;s platform, and is there a chance iOS users may reap the benefits of <em>CallApp</em> later down the line?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">As we said before, our Users come first. Now why would we want to provide them with “ok” apps on two different operating systems? Instead we want to deliver the best product possible, so for right now we’re focusing on Android. Android currently has almost 90% market share, so we thought this was the better operating system to start on. Of course, in the future we plan to be on iOS as well.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: Recording conversations is a useful tool, but can also be a privacy/legal concern. How has your team addressed the gnarlier aspects on that front?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong><span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">As the first ever app to have Caller ID and Call Recording in the same app, we had to do a lot of research on this subject. In the finished product, the user is obligated to accept and agree prior to enabling the call recording feature inside the app. <em>CallApp</em> doesn’t store the recordings on the <em>CallApp</em> server either, it’s only stored on the user’s device, the user has full control to save and delete the files.</span></span></p>\n<div class=\"boxsucces\">\n<strong>Appolicious</strong>: What&#8217;s the most important thing you&#8217;d say the team has learned over the course of<em> CallApp</em>&#8216;s development?<br />\n</div>\n<p><strong>AG: </strong>T<span style=\"color: #353535;\"><span style=\"font-size: medium;\">he most important thing we have learned is good ideas don’t necessarily equal successful ideas. Everything we do here is tracked thanks to advanced analytics programs. This has helped us realize that not every idea we have will perform well. When the idea isn’t performing, we accept this and try to figure out how to improve it. When the idea is performing, we don’t just let it sit idle, we develop ways to make it even stronger. We don’t have nearly 40 Million Users just by a fluke, everything we do here is deeply planned and carefully implemented.</span></span></p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.callapp.contacts) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-db2875e748a69715f44ad27e6fd35398 googleplay colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.callapp.contacts&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"CallApp: Caller ID, Block &amp; Phone Call Recorder\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.callapp.contacts\"><img src=\"//lh3.googleusercontent.com/tKCHMOQyCDL3RiwPAKpn3uVzKKub0J-lMY1Z4e6Gaf6PJFgYUqJZPF2MoV185yflXg8=s180\" alt=\"CallApp: Caller ID, Block &amp; Phone Call Recorder\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.callapp.contacts\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-db2875e748a69715f44ad27e6fd35398 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-db2875e748a69715f44ad27e6fd35398 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.callapp.contacts\" title=\"CallApp: Caller ID, Block &amp; Phone Call Recorder\" class=\"apptitle\">CallApp: Caller ID, Block &amp; Phone Call Recorder</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/dev?id=6882074241033486164\">CallApp Caller ID &amp; Call Recording Contacts</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n"},"date":"2018-04-14T10:48:42","date_gmt":"2018-04-14T10:48:42","excerpt":{"protected":false,"rendered":"<p>Who is that calling you?

be unalterable for use of contracts. The problem lies in trying to turn one type of document into a PDF so that, when you send it, that nefarious recipient doesn’t change the text.</p>\n<p>In Windows, you can change a word document to a PDF easily enough, but there is essentially no way to do this when using a mobile device.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/tSVIEVMx8Fw\">YouTube</a></h4>\n<p>No Description</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<p>In today’s modern world, more people are using mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones, than ever before. Gone are the days of hulking around a giant laptop, instead today’s modern businessman needs to use his phone on the go.</p>\n<p>Despite this, people are still forced to shift to their PC if they want to create, edit or send PDFs easily.</p>\n<p>With <a href=\"https://pdf.wondershare.com\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">PDFelement</a>, that has all changed.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">With PDFelement, that has all changed.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>PDFelement may seem a simple, limited-in-features app, but that’s because it is a utility app. You don’t want your utility applications to do anything but what they say on the tin – anything else is just further complications.</p>\n<p>PDFelement allows you to fully edit and customize your PDFs, coming pre-equipped with Font recognition and the ability to change whole details far more easily than when using Adobe Reader on your PC.</p>\n<p>Even more usefully, you can highlight individual sections of the document, useful when you’re disputing a legal clause or you just want to highlight something important in a video game manual.</p>\n<p><img class=\"alignright size-full wp-image-80320\" src=\"https://appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/pdfelement2.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"515\" srcset=\"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/pdfelement2.jpg 1024w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/pdfelement2-300x151.jpg 300w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/pdfelement2-768x386.jpg 768w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/pdfelement2-350x176.jpg 350w, https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/pdfelement2-830x417.jpg 830w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n<p>Alongside this, taking directly from the most commonly used Adobe Reader feature, you can fill and sign forms with ease.</p>\n<p>Another options that absolutely dwarfs the capability of other PDF apps, even the ones available for PC, is the ability to take a photo using your phone’s camera and convert <em>that </em>to a PDF! This allows you to quickly make PDFs on the go, including that hand written legal document you hope will hold up in court – it’s even signed!</p>\n<p>To allow complete usability for your PDFs, you have a huge amount of sharing options available – you can sync the app to Dropbox, Google Drive and a myriad of others, allowing you to send and share your PDFs to whomever you wish.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">To allow complete usability for your PDFs, you have a huge amount of sharing options available – you can sync the app to Dropbox, Google Drive and a myriad of others, allowing you to send and share your PDFs to whomever you wish.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>PDFelement manages to cram literally everything you could possible need in a PDF app into one handy, minimalist program. It’s hard to imagine any other feature that a PDF user could need; from alteration and sharing, all the way to actual creation of new PDFs – as well as storing your signature for easy placement on documents – PDFelement has you completely covered.</p>\n<p>As a simplistic utility app, PDFelement has everything you need to utilise PDFs properly, whether they be for personal or professional use.

a highly recommended app which lets users interact with the stars through the use of their camera. For example, users can identify various celestial bodies by simply pointing the camera at the sky at which point the app will show the constellation, stars, and planets. Furthermore, by rotating the camera, the app automatically recognizes the different points in the sky and adjusts accordingly. Even in sub-optimal viewing conditions such as with light pollution and a bright sky, the app can still identify different objects. With this, Skyview makes it simple to interact with different elements in the sky through the power of AR that would not be possible otherwise. Beyond just simply naming the objects that are in the sky, the app also has different information such as the location of the Hubble and International Space Station as well as the location of stars at different points in time. As the process of stargazing can be difficult especially in city centers, the app is one that leverages AR to make it easier.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 413936865) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-b839c377bfc156ccca4e877aff526528 appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fskyview-lite%2Fid413936865%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"SkyView® Lite\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skyview-lite/id413936865?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is4-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple118/v4/9e/93/55/9e9355c3-58f4-53e6-557b-ed4aef33fca1/AppIcon-1x_U007emarketing-0-0-GLES2_U002c0-512MB-sRGB-0-0-0-85-220-0-0-0-4.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"SkyView® Lite\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skyview-lite/id413936865?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-b839c377bfc156ccca4e877aff526528 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-b839c377bfc156ccca4e877aff526528 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skyview-lite/id413936865?mt=8\" title=\"SkyView® Lite\" class=\"apptitle\">SkyView® Lite</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/terminal-eleven-llc/id378238417?mt=8\">Terminal Eleven LLC</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"4.6 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars45\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h3>Augment &#8211; 3D Augmented Reality</h3>\n<p>To increase engagement during online sales, Augment is a powerful app which lets users visualize their online purchases at home. For companies that have integrated Augment, consumers are able to get a virtual version of their goods through their device so that they do not have to imagine what it would look like. For the purchaser, a better grasp of the product can be understood as users simply have to point their camera and select the product that they are looking to buy for it to be shown in the physical space. From large furniture to smaller accessories, many products can be displayed in the environment. Furthermore, the app aims to replicate the size and look of the item by being able to turn the product at different angles and even adjust the size automatically depending on where it is placed in the room. On the other hand, companies that utilize Augment are able to convert higher sales as their customers better understand the product prior to placing a purchase, making it one of the best apps in the augmented reality space.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 506463171) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-09d815c808fdcb3667818bcfcb3f073a appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Faugment-3d-augmented-reality%2Fid506463171%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Augment - 3D Augmented Reality\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/augment-3d-augmented-reality/id506463171?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is4-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple128/v4/40/fb/9c/40fb9c13-d7f7-2430-35c9-b4afb24a4dca/mzl.refmftrg.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"Augment - 3D Augmented Reality\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/augment-3d-augmented-reality/id506463171?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-09d815c808fdcb3667818bcfcb3f073a .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-09d815c808fdcb3667818bcfcb3f073a .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/augment-3d-augmented-reality/id506463171?mt=8\" title=\"Augment - 3D Augmented Reality\" class=\"apptitle\">Augment - 3D Augmented Reality</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/augment/id506463174?mt=8\">Augment</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free</span> <div title=\"3 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars30\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h3>iOnRoad &#8211; Augmented Reality Driving</h3>\n<p>To incorporate augmented reality into the process of driving, iOnRoad introduces proprietary algorithms to identify various metrics related to the road. For example, if a camera is mounted on the dashboard to face the front, the app can identify how far the car in front of the user’s vehicle is as well as various indicators. In being able to process information intelligently, drivers can get notifications while they drive in a non-intrusive manner. For example, safety alerts are made possible if a car is driving too close to the vehicle ahead of it. Beyond this, off-road alerts also exist so that if a driver is driving too close to the left or right side of the road, an alert will notify them. Through these features, physical objects on the road are made to interact with virtual elements such as a popup box that hovers over the vehicle ahead of the driver.  Combining factors such as acceleration, highly accurate statistics can be obtained to enhance road safety.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 569507817) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-80fa31589448204921f10961d5bf89b3 appstore colorful deprecated simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fionroad-augmented-reality-driving%2Fid569507817%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"iOnRoad - Augmented Reality Driving\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ionroad-augmented-reality-driving/id569507817?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is1-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple3/v4/43/39/6a/43396a0a-3b94-cecc-79ee-3f8a3bf958e3/mzl.xkrndbac.jpg/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"iOnRoad - Augmented Reality Driving\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ionroad-augmented-reality-driving/id569507817?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-80fa31589448204921f10961d5bf89b3 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-80fa31589448204921f10961d5bf89b3 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ionroad-augmented-reality-driving/id569507817?mt=8\" title=\"iOnRoad - Augmented Reality Driving\" class=\"apptitle\">iOnRoad - Augmented Reality Driving</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/ionroad-ltd/id569501562?mt=8\">iOnRoad Ltd</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: $0.99</span> <div title=\"2 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars20\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h3>Pokémon GO (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pok%C3%A9mon-go/id1094591345?mt=8\">iOS</a>)</h3>\n<p>One of the fastest growing mobile games has been Pokémon GO which has recently caught the interest of millions of players around the world. Based on catching Pokémon, the game has players going to different locations to throw virtual Pokeballs at different creatures to capture them. To introduce the elements of augmented reality, the creatures are placed in the surrounding environment which players can then interact with. Furthermore, players can use their existing captures to battle other Pokémon with various swipes and different interactions that combines the animation of the game with the physical surroundings. Utilizing both location and camera based gaming, the game introduces a new degree of reality that has not been seen before. With the high level of augmented reality that is integrated, the level of entertainment that Pokémon go provides is unprecedented when compared to other, more static games.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 1094591345) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-ac8b79b44b719034fd275c96a2f2316a appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fpok%25C3%25A9mon-go%2Fid1094591345%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Pokémon GO\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pok%C3%A9mon-go/id1094591345?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is5-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple125/v4/d4/86/8f/d4868f97-ac5d-20cb-972f-30e168f4d065/AppIcon-1x_U007emarketing-85-220-0-8.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"Pokémon GO\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pok%C3%A9mon-go/id1094591345?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-ac8b79b44b719034fd275c96a2f2316a .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-ac8b79b44b719034fd275c96a2f2316a .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pok%C3%A9mon-go/id1094591345?mt=8\" title=\"Pokémon GO\" class=\"apptitle\">Pokémon GO</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/niantic-inc/id1037205060?mt=8\">Niantic, Inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"3.9 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars40\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h3>ARBasketball &#8211; Augmented Reality Basketball Game</h3>\n<p>Another game that leverages augmented reality is ARBasketball which allows players to throw virtual balls at a basketball hoop.

for people like myself who suffer from severe food allergies. It&#8217;s a near-invisible but deeply troubling problem that&#8217;s unfortunately growing in prominence over the past two decades. As such, you&#8217;d think in a market full of niche apps <strong>so</strong> wide that we have <a href=\"https://backend.appolicious.com/augmenting-your-reality-holo-with-arkit-interview/\">holograms</a> and <a href=\"https://backend.appolicious.com/the-best-meditation-apps-you-should-have-on-your-iphone-to-find-your-peace-of-mind/\">meditation guidance</a>&#8230; that you&#8217;d figure we have plenty great food allergy apps, right?</p>\n<p>You&#8217;d be wrong.</p>\n<p>I downloaded some of the reportedly best apps for someone with my condition, and here&#8217;s what I found. I&#8217;ve included both two that you should absolutely avoid, and the two most useful apps I discovered.</p>\n<h2><strong>The Worst:</strong></h2>\n<h3>For Kids &#8212; <em>Allergy Reality</em></h3>\n<p>This is one of several apps that aims to educate your whole family about what is and isn&#8217;t safe to eat. It does this with a series of mini-games with varying amounts of relevance, with the best being the simple act of asking players to pick out what food is or isn&#8217;t safe based on their allergy, while the worst is an infuriating matching game more likely to annoy a child than inform them.</p>\n<p>Then there&#8217;s the one asking kids to spell out an allergen&#8217;s name in a reversed form of hangman. Nevermind most of the children who will use this app won&#8217;t know how to spell &#8220;BRAZILIAN NUTS&#8221; and also for the record, they&#8217;re referred to typically as just &#8220;Brazil Nuts&#8221;.</p>\n<p>To be fair, I discovered another good one where the player has to pick out from what ingredients weren&#8217;t safe from an ingredient list on the back of a box, but there&#8217;s something you may be noticing &#8211; the best mini-games available are things you could <em>just do at home with actual food products</em>. The rest of the mini-games border on bizarre and outright ill-conceived. There&#8217;s no relevant lesson here that necessitates downloading the app. But hey, it&#8217;s got a theme song and some really strange-yet-boring mini-games, and apparently that&#8217;s warranted it being a popular download.</p>\n<h3>For Adults &#8212; <em>Spokin</em></h3>\n<p>Did you need a new social media platform that&#8217;s really hard to navigate, basically just doubles as an ad platform for a few (your mileage may vary, I saw mostly the same one over and over again) allergen-free brands? I didn&#8217;t, but apparently somebody thought we needed one. It seems no one told the developers of <em>Spokin</em> that there&#8217;s already dozens of Facebook groups dedicated to this. While there&#8217;s clearly good intentions behind this one, it&#8217;s only slightly less irrelevant than <em>Allergy Reality</em>.</p>\n<h2><strong>The Best:</strong></h2>\n<h3>For Kids &#8212; <em>Wizdy Diner</em></h3>\n<p>Apparently odd names are just a rule of thumb for allergy apps, but at least<em> Wizdy</em> offers a solid effort when it comes to conveying how easily allergens can slip in when you&#8217;re eating out at a restaurant. The core gameplay is a typical <em>Diner Dash</em> clone, except now you have to make sure to catch every person&#8217;s allergens before telling the chef what to cook up. The parade of customers gets faster and faster, increasing the odds some of your customers might be sent to the hospital if you aren&#8217;t careful. Along the way, you upgrade your diner and have to choose what food you have on offer &#8211; giving kids a light bit of management, in addition to consequences for if they don&#8217;t have allergen-friendly food on the menu.</p>\n<p>The game itself is basic, but achieves its goals better than any other child-friendly app that I tried. It&#8217;s genuinely possible to give your customers the wrong food order a few times, and the gravity of your actions &#8211; while not as severe as they would be in real life &#8211; are made clear. There&#8217;s even a secondary mini-game on the main menu about educating kids how to use an epinephrine shot. It&#8217;s not the most<em> exciting</em> game, but it translates the risks of food allergies at restaurants with the clear, easily understood language of gameplay mechanics. Edutainment done right.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 1059091444?ls=1&amp;mt=8) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fwizdy-diner-food-allergy-game%2Fid1059091444%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wizdy-diner-food-allergy-game/id1059091444?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is4-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple118/v4/6d/98/99/6d9899b3-23d6-183f-0e2a-c6f0d5ca2ec0/mzl.ojuiablb.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wizdy-diner-food-allergy-game/id1059091444?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wizdy-diner-food-allergy-game/id1059091444?mt=8\" title=\"Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game\" class=\"apptitle\">Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/lifeguard-games-inc/id819845868?mt=8\">LifeGuard Games, Inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-8a15fd8b4fc1994b5fb2221e529aa8c1 googleplay colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid\"><img src=\"//lh3.googleusercontent.com/HNk0uXtkknLuSGcTwvBEoX414xdlx2tmQCCsh0Iu_CDtK6U-AwYDX10arff6C7GOyg=s180\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-8a15fd8b4fc1994b5fb2221e529aa8c1 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-8a15fd8b4fc1994b5fb2221e529aa8c1 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid\" title=\"Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game\" class=\"apptitle\">Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=LifeGuard+Games,+Inc.\">LifeGuard Games, Inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h3>For Adults &#8212; <em>ipiit: The Food Ambassador</em></h3>\n<p>Yes, that&#8217;s actually it&#8217;s name, but <em>ipiit</em> is one of the more useful apps available. It&#8217;s a barcode scanner that can quickly inform you about many common products, and is supported in part by a public database that its users grow by taking pictures of products. The scanner function works fine so long as it knows the product, and if it doesn&#8217;t, you can easily take a few pictures and send it off to the app&#8217;s developers. It&#8217;s a brilliant use of crowd-sourcing that makes perfect sense. You can even specify what your allergen is &#8211; but that&#8217;s where things go downhill for an otherwise solid app.</p>\n<p>You see,<em> ipiit</em>, in all its unpronounceable wisdom, doesn&#8217;t feature support for all top 8 major allergens. It can tell you if the
