App review: Frametastic

Posted by Charmed in review , iPod Touch , iPhone , ipad , frametastic , app


I downloaded Frametastic a few weeks ago and it is listed (currently) as “free for a limited time” in its description on iTunes. If you are reading this and own any compatible device – iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (running iOS 4.0 or later), I suggest you download it – you won’t regret it.

iOS 5: wireless update

Posted by Charmed in wireless software update , iPhone , ios 5 , Apple


I got to try one of iOS 5′s new features earlier today – wireless software update, because I left my cable at home. It was very simple, all I had to do was go into Settings > General > Software Update and begin!

GlamBox: try before you buy

Posted by Charmed in online shopping , glambox , beauty


GlamBox is a ‘try before you buy’ online service for cosmetic samples, make up and beauty products. As someone who never has time to for these things, all the beauty products I own are months/years old. I read somewhere that mascara should be thrown out every 6 months. Oops.

Likes & dislikes: Nokia N9

Posted by Charmed in Nokia N9 , Nokia , MeeGo


I'm two minded about the Nokia N9. While a lot of effort went into its design, Nokia itself have given up on the MeeGo operating system in favour of open source Tizen (not forgetting that Symbian is being replaced by Windows Phone).

Although we knew why Steve Jobs left Apple when he did, it was still a shock reading about his death via Twitter and Facebook yesterday.

Lenovo IdeaPad K1

Posted by Charmed in tablet , Lenovo , IdeaPad K1 , Android Honeycomb , andriod


I received the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 tablet to use over the next few years. It runs Android 3.1 Honeycomb, and if you're familiar with Android, you know that you need a Google account to access almost everything on it.
