I haven't quite decided if this app is useful or useless.  You know how your desk or fridge are covered in Post-its?  This app lets you digitize these reminders and notes using your phone's camera, then sort, store and organize them right on your phone.  

 

This app is extremely useful if you're in an industry that uses Post-its in a collaborative environment to prepare for presentations.  Digitizing the notes allows you to share them with other services like DropBox or GoogleDrive, so the whole group is kept up to date and remains a part of the process.

On the other hand, if your sticky notes are reminders and motivational thoughts of the day...do you really need two copies?

Decide for yourself.  Post-it Plus is free on iTunes and works with iOS8.

The Wave changed streaming providers to improve our quality and with that comes a new and improved streaming app! (the old one is defunct, uninstall it). Along with improved quality, less commercial interruptions and more music, we added new features including album art, song and artist information, a list of recently played songs, a sleep timer and an alarm feature!

 

 

When searching for the app, it is important that you use WNWV. “The Wave” or “107.3” are helpful but won't get you the immediate results you're hoping for.

 

Free in the App Store and on Google Play

 

OR you can scan the QR code in this post and download the app immediately!  (if you need a good QR code scanner, may I recommend i-nigma also free for Android and iPhone)

Last week, U2 released their new album "Songs of Innocence" on iTunes, and gave it, for free, to everyone with an iTunes account.  With about a half-billion iTunes accounts out there, not surprisingly, there were one or two people who didn't appreciate the gift and tried to remove it from their library.  They were unsuccessful.  The album or the songs could not be deleted...until now.

Monday, Apple released a removal tool.  

To remove the album from your iTunes library, go to itunes.com/soi-remove.  You will be asked to confirm your decision, then enter your AppleID and password.  That's all there is to it.

After introducing the new iPhone 6, 6Plus and the Apple Watch, this week, Apple announced Apple Pay, a digital wallet, integrated into the new devices that will let you use your phone to pay for purchases online and at the register. Like some credit and debit cards are already doing, the technology uses near-field communications. While pressing your fingerprint to the phone's screen, hold the phone near the credit card keypad at the register and your payment will be accepted. Macys, Walgreens, McDonald's, Subway and Staples are already on board and planning to participate with the service rolls out in October.

Online, Apple Pay will act like PayPal, where you pay for goods by entering your Apple Pay account information, not your credit card number.

The service is free...but the iPhone 6 will set you back $299 (with a two-year carrier contract)
