Know who's sick in your neighborhood, and know what's “going around” with this real-time map of illness. Its crowdsourced outbreak information! The SickWeather app lets you know when there's a chicken pox outbreak near you, or how many people have the flu in your office building, and it'll give you the heads up that pinkeye might be going around school...maybe before the school knows.
And you can add to the information. When you don't feel well, or your kids are sick, make sure to enter it into the app so others know to steer clear.
Or check the map anytime on the web site: sickweather.com.
The latest update to the Amazon app has Augmented Reality functionality built it...so you can see how furniture will look in your living room before you buy it; or how a shirt will look on you. IKEA launched something similar last month.
Like the popular Pokemon go game, the app superimposes an image of the item over the image seen by your phone's camera. Point the lens in the dining room to see how the table will look with your wallpaper, or see how that comforter might look on your bed.
If you don't already have the Amazon app...you can download it for free on all devices.
Election day is next week, and if you're still confused on who's running for what, who are the other candidates in that race, and what the heck is the straight dope on Issue 2?
You're in luck!
Show up to the poll informed. Go to Vote411.org.
Its all there. Polling station information, races, candidates and their platforms, and you can read up on the referendums on the ballot!
Instead of spending time rush-reading through the issues at the polls, take your time to read and understand who and what you'll be voting for.
You can also register to vote on the site, but its a little too late for that today.
Everything you need to know before you vote is available at Vote411.org
Since Dan Deely is in Las Vegas this week, we thought we'd share an app he, no doubt, uses when planning his trips to the strip.
In Las Vegas, they know that the fun isn't just happening “now”, it's happening “next”. The web site and this mobile version app gives you insider information about what's happening around town.
Book tickets to shows, find off-the-beaten-path fun, locate the best meals or drink deals in town, and, since its on your phone, it can tell you the most important information of all: Where's the closest public restroom.
Ever been at a party, at a bar, at a restaurant, or the gym, and you really want to hear what's on TV, but you just can't because everyone around you is being too loud? You need this app. Now!
Open the app, aim it at the TV. The app scans the image on the screen, then searches the net to figure out what you're watching...and streams the audio directly to your phone (or bluetooth speaker)!
