Geek of the Week: Parallel Space

Ever wish you could keep track of multiple facebook accounts on your phone without having to log-out and log back in? Maybe you have a personal profile and a work profile, maybe you're in charge of the company's account this week, maybe you have a super hero alter ego. Other multiple account monitoring apps don't give you the full app, just the ability to post.

You need Parallel Space. It allows you to run two instances of the same app, with different log-ins simultaneously. And it isn't just for Facebook, ANY app on your phone that requires a log-in can be accessed in Parallel Space. Twitter, Instagram, email, bank apps, even gaming apps, can all live in Parallel Space.

Open the app, select the app you wish to use with multiple accounts, enter the log-in info and BOOM! You have a second app! Even make a shortcut to your home screen for faster access. And you won't get the two confused because the shortcut from Parallel Space has a rainbow border around it.

The app is free on GooglePlay for your Android device.

Geek of the Week: Steppy Pants

 

This is a game for iPhone and iPad users. Sort of like Flappy Bird where you tap the screen to make your bird flap his wings...in this situation, you tap the screen every time you want the character to take a step.

Nobody wants to break their mother's back...so the object of the game is to avoid stepping on cracks (and other obstacles). It is way harder than you think.

Added bonus: the main character looks like he should be in a Dire Straits video.

Free on iTunes give it a try!
