Todd’s Apps

Todds Top Apps – a monthly review of must have, worthy of looking or just plain interesting apps that are relevant to the design industry.


Wallet heaving with store and loyalty cards? Woolworths, Myers, Anaconda, BCF, super cheap auto.  Essentially any card with a bar code on it is generally compatible; can quickly and easily be scanned and held electronically on your phone. Whenever you need one simply open up the app, select your card and it’s all ready for the shop keeper to scan.  A great space saving app to get the often or rarely used cards out out of your wallet and always available. Another handy feature allows you to check what deals are on offer by any of the store cards – so you can decide if it’s worth a trip to the shops or not.  For me just getting them out of my wallet is worth the free price tag!


Is your phone loaded full of contacts some of which you can remember or are so old you really don’t need them anymore.  Dread the task of going through them all and deleting? Cinder is here to help – offering a quick and efficient sorting – either delete or flag for delete interface. So you can very quickly and brutally work through all your contacts decide who goes and who stays and who is likely to go and you just want to think about it for a moment.  So if your contacts list is getting out of control and you need a quick way to tidy things up.  Definitely look up cinder.

Just press record

Need a personal assistant to help you in meetings? Just press record could be the cheapest option. For a small cost this app will record meetings and conversations at a press of a button (also compatible with a[pole watch). From there you will of course have the recording but you also ask it to transcribe into written words ready to file! Sounds too good to be true? Maybe – I haven’t tried it so can’t vouch for it – but sounds really handy if you don’t fancy taking notes…and it works.
