Healthy Star

Healthy Star is designed to introduce children to the
benefits of staying fit and healthy using a pleasantly
designed interactive eBook. It works using positive
affirmations to make the child feel more confident,

children, who will benefit from
some relaxation every day. The
app's young users are
encouraged to repeat positive
phrases over and over again as
part of a daily routine. If this is

Education and fun in one free package
Few children’s eBooks manage to combine education

Adobe® CreatePDF Infinity CV Builder
Convert multiple files to PDF

Create a CV while on the go

Adobe CreatePDF for the iPhone makes it possible
to convert various file formats into PDF documents
that can be shared directly from the handset.
CreatePDF works by uploading documents to
Adobe, where they are converted in the cloud and sent back to
the handset. On the upside, it keeps the app small and
lightweight. However, this also means that without a data
connection the conversion process won’t work. The app itself is
very simple in execution – find an app that uses an ‘Open in…’
command and select Adobe CreatePDF.
Our tests revealed varying results, depending on the source
formats. More complicated sources such as InDesign documents
were converted quickly and with impressive results. By contrast
every text file we converted didn’t work at all. There’s also no
editing of completed PDF files, nor is it possible to zoom in to
further inspect the quality of each conversion.
These shortcomings combined with the price tag prevent
CreatePDF from being a dead cert recommendation.

Creating a good CV can be a difficult first hurdle
for any jobseeker, and not fully knowing what
information to include and how to structure it can
be a stressful situation. Infinity CV Builder is a free
iPhone-sized CV creation tool and job advice wizard.
Creating a CV is a simple process where the user is prompted
for the relevant information for each section, and the app offers
advice on what kinds of details to include. Each section also
includes audio clips that offer advice on how to deliver a CV
with impact. Once the CV is finished, it can be previewed
within the app and then printed, tweeted or emailed directly
to a potential employer.
The additional ‘Job Tips’ section includes a generous 50
tips spread over five topics. It’s an excellent resource. For any
jobseeker looking for help, Infinity CV Builder is a superb free app.

Remote control computer trickery

Getting into debt is never a pleasant experience,
and without essential planning it’s possible to let
the problem get out of control. DebtMinder is an
app that can analyse a user’s financial situation,
develop a payoff plan, and help dig them out of a hole.
DebtMinder offers simple and effective data
synchronisation between iOS devices via the cloud, perfect
for keeping team members updated on the current situation.
Data can also be synced with sister app BillMinder. Syncing
data is reliant upon setting up an account, but if you don’t
want to do this it is not required, as the app still works fine as
a standalone product. DebtMinder calculates payoff plans
based on interest rates, starting dates and opening. The
progress of a plan can be viewed in the Reports section of the
app where line graphs and pie charts visualise your current
financial status. For someone looking to wrestle some control
over their vanishing finances, DebtMinder is an ideal app for
turning the tide.

GoToMyPC is a remote control software service
that enables a user to operate their computer from
another device over the internet. In recent times
the service has branched out to iOS, allowing control
from an iPhone or iPad.
An active subscription is required to use the service,
although free trials are available that last for 30 days with no
up-front requirement for payment information. Considering the
complicated technical aspects involved in network connections
such as this, the installation process of GoToMyPC is reassuringly
easy. Once the client is installed on a computer, simply enter
the same account details on the app and the two will connect.
Upon startup, the app displays the various ways of controlling the
computer via a touch device, easing new users into the app in
the process. The response time works well and the initially strange
controls become more intuitive over time. As an easy-to-install
remote computer solution, GoToMyPC is hard to beat.

Divided Bill Splitter

Test the legal compliance of your company

Split complicated bills directly on your iPhone

For employers with larger workforces, employment
law is an important concern. HR Audit is a free app
that provides a number of questions designed to
assess risk factors and provide support for human
resources professionals.
With sections for both
administration and
employment, the supplied
questionnaires total to 60
questions with simple Yes/No/
Don’t Know answers. It’s an easy,
no-frills app, but its simple
approach may not be ideal for
those requiring a slightly more
concise guide to American
employment law.

When dining out with friends, splitting the bill can
be a time-consuming pain and a cause of
disagreements. Instead of breaking out a calculator
app, Divided Bill Splitter can be applied to effectively
split the cost. The
straightforward interface allows
for totals to be calculated with
or without a tip, also making it
more functional than the builtin calculator. If a straight split
isn’t ideal, it’s similarly possible
to apply separate costs for
individuals within a group.
Divided Bill Splitter is a simple
yet perfectly functional app that
we would certainly recommend.

If you’ve recently started
your own business, and
have so far given no
thought whatsoever to
a logo to sell your company then this
is an app designed to help. Input the
name of your company, choose the
industry it operates in, and the app
will spew out a selection of logos.
However, they struck us as rather
bland and unimaginative. There is no
artistic freedom to tweak or redraw
the logos in-app, and options are
limited to simply changing the colours
of whatever logo you have picked out
from the selection on offer.

There are a few apps
that make you sit back
and wonder how the
developer manages to
make such a useful solution available
for free, and Employment Law Cloud
is one of them. It contains essential
legal facts relating to employment law,
and is presented in a way that makes
it easily accessible to lawyers and the
general public alike. It may not be an
app that you use every single day, but
for those times when free advice is
needed, this is a solution that will give
you the answers you need.

BHT Group is one of
Ireland’s largest suppliers
of building, heating and
home improvement
materials. Their free iOS app makes it
possible to find local suppliers, view
brochures or browse the Tips & Advice
section. This is a functional app that
provides a decent service, but to look
at and navigate, it is about as exciting
as holidaying in B&Q. Aesthetics aside
though, for professional and retail
markets based in Ireland, BHT Group is
a useful information resource and this
free app will definitely prove to be a
very useful one.

For some individuals the
UK phenomenon of the
car boot sale is a serious
business. Carboot.com
is the UK’s fastest growing interactive
database covering car boot sales, and
the Carboot app provides mobile
access to that database. Each entry
comes complete with pictures, event
descriptions, map locations and
helpful weather updates, so whether
you have a garage full of tat you
want to peddle, or you fancy a good
rummage through someone’s wares
first thing on a Sunday morning, this
app will show you where to go.

Anyone who is reliant
on the Royal Mail should
find plenty of practical
use for Post Prices. This
free app can calculate the cost of
posting an item based on its size,
weight and postal service required.
It could save you a long trip to the
Post Office if you find that posting
a particular item won’t prove cost
effective for the value of the goods
inside. And even though this app
doesn’t support international postage
costs at the moment, we still highly
recommend it.

This incredible pricing
tool enables you to
search for literally
anything you need to
check prices for. Each search comes
back with a list of prices from a wide
range of online retailers. Each entry
leeches item descriptions from the
seller’s site so you know exactly what
you’re looking for and the service
is quick, delivering the information
that you crave in the blink of an eye.
The fact you have to type stuff puts it
behind the cleverer barcode-reading
apps, but it’s still worth consideration if
you like shopping for bargains.

SCM Supplier Profiling
can be applied to
analyse the working
relationship between
a company and its suppliers. There’s
some useful advice on offer but
nothing that can’t be found elsewhere.
The included questions are limited
and the app mostly serves as an
advert for Simply Joined, the company
behind it. We frown on shameless
self-promotion apps, and the fact that
you actually have to pay money for
this should surely spare you from such
blatant self-stroking.

Knowing the tricks and
tweaks around iOS is
a necessity for anyone
who relies on their
iPhone for their day-to-day business
needs. Secrets for iPhone (iOS 5
Edition) has 160 tips covering topics
to help improve the usability of your
iPhone. It even updates with each
new iOS release. The value of the app
largely depends on how much time
you have to read up on operating tips
to speed up your iPhone productivity,
as all of the content can be obtained
for free with a single Google search. So
proceed with caution.

Genetics

Explore the human hand and
the basic biology behind it
Budding biologists will enjoy exploring this app.
Zoom in on a human hand, and take a scientific
tour of the cells and genetics. Zoom into the skin’s
surface, and delve further to discover cells, cell
parts, mitosis, DNA replication, translation and transcription.
Built like a game, you can collect points when opting to
interact with an area, although there are no rewards or quizzes.
This interactive app is extremely easy to use, and well
designed. Responding quickly to touch, you can zoom in and
out with ease, or use the zoom bar to jump between layers.
It’s not overly expensive, but you are limited to just touring
the human hand. It is, however, a good start to what could
become a great scientific series.

Leafsnap

Trees of northeast America
Curious minds and green-fingered enthusiasts will
find Leafsnap a great app tool when they are out and
about exploring greenery that is native to the
northeast of America.
This fantastic app currently has 184 species in its database with
over 2,590 high-resolution, illustrative images to browse through.
Still in its early stages, this resource has a lot of promise and will
continue to be developed.
Easy to use, the app has been well designed with enough layers
and features to keep anyone engaged. Select the Browse option
from the bottom menu to search through the database by leaf,
flower, seed or berry. Once you’ve selected the correct species, you
are able to preview other images that relate to the leaf and find out
more information about the particular tree from which it originates.
The fantastic interactive Snap It! feature is what really makes this
app stand out, enabling you to photograph a leaf before
presenting possible match results. You can browse through

alternative tree types from which your leaf may have originated,
selecting the most suitable one to label. Your leaf will then appear
as part of your own collection database, which you can continue to
build upon. A great way to encourage regular use, the Snap It!
feature will only work when your iOS device is connected to the
internet via Wi-Fi or 3G, which unfortunately is not practical if you
are out exploring in the wilderness. It is worth noting, however,
that you can still take a photograph in the app without internet
connection to match up with results later on when you have found
a Wi-Fi area, which is something.
Overall this is a very well thought-out app with the potential to
be great – it just needs a little more development to make it a
fantastic pocket companion. Because it is free, though, it’s well
worth the download to check out the database, and perhaps we
will see further developments in the future.

miCoach Football

Monitor Adidas’ new superboots

This app works in conjunction with the catchily
named miCoach SPEED_CELL, a clever device
that slots into a cavity on the underside of Adidas’
new adiZero F50 football boots. This cell collects
and stores data as you play, such as the number of sprints,
distance covered and maximum running speed, and this app
collates the data and presents it in neat graphs and charts for
you to monitor your performance and compare stats against
other users. It’s an amazing fusion of technologies, but to use
this app properly you obviously have to fork out for the
professional-standard boots and be playing at a decent level. If
you do neither then the app also features a somewhat clunky
street-style football game to play and earn achievements
through – which really isn’t a bad consolation prize considering
that the app itself is totally free. So while the app and the
technology that drives it is a great tool for players and coaches
alike to monitor player performance, for most of us it doesn’t
really serve much of a purpose.

Informative publication for sailing fanatics

A video tutorial app, Basketball DIY shows you how

a better player on the court. The app contains
15 videos, covering a range of topics, from game

Obviously the content is highly
specialist, but a sign of the
quality is that some features

whether you know anything
