If you are a relatively new Windows Phone 7 user, chances are that you are thinking “What did I miss?” It is common for trends in apps to keep on changing with time. One app which is famous today might become completely unknown in the Marketplace within a month. This doesn’t mean that the app has lost its productivity or positives. It’s just that most people have already downloaded it and the world moved on. There is no easier way to search for such apps in the Marketplace, or rather, there hasn't been one until now. Meet App Flow -
a search engine and comprehensive app discovery tool for the WP7 Marketplace.
Today seems to be the day of note-taking apps. After covering 7Notes for handwritten notes
, we ran into another handy app from the same genre. If you're an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch user who likes to write as much as we do, then Post-it’s PopNotes

There are many other post-it apps available in the App Store, but PopNotes distinguishes itself from other due to the way it presents information on notes, and its own map that lets you see exactly where you created a particular note. So if you like to stay in touch with your loved ones via notes, and happen to be living in the US, then read on to learn more about this app.

One of the many anticipated features of Windows 8 is the ability to dynamically change Aero Glass color according to the color scheme of the current wallpaper. We last reviewed a third party application called Aura
which brings this functionality to Windows 7. Aura was later updated with an additional feature
i.e. to change Windows Aero Glass color according to currently opened Internet Explorer 9 tab. AeroRainbow
is another 3rd party application which can automatically change the Aero color shade according to current wallpaper, active window, or by predefined shades.
is a portable application to create macro commands and assign hotkey combinations in order to perform almost any kind of task, such as, open files, run applications, shut down, log off or restart your PC, change windows opacity, simulate mouse actions and so on. HotkeyP also supports multimedia keys for assigning commands (for keyboard which may have multimedia keys). For example, you can select a game, assign a hotkey combination to the executable followed by a command to simulate a mouse movement to the hotkey, as you might find it more convenient to automate the game action rather than using the mouse. You can edit any command and hotkey combination, assign certain process priority and set to automatically run at Windows startup.
We’ve previously reviewed two apps that help you create color schemes; Chroma
was a Chrome app and ColorSpire
was a web app that made it easy to find the right color or the right shade for whatever you wanted to design. While both apps in their own capacity worked well, the Color Scheme Designer
out does them by a mile. This web application lets you create color schemes with a single color or in a combination of two, three or four colors. You can adjust the brightness and hue of the colors, select from many preset contrast options, and view samples of what a web page would like in the current scheme. Each scheme that’s created has it’s own link that you can use to share it with your designer, a co-worker or a client.
You might have heard about the Chinese teacher who made it compulsory for students to have an iPad in order to attend his lectures. While this might be taking things to an extreme, the truth of the matter is that an iPad really is a perfect tool for schools and teaching. It’s about the size of an ordinary book (and weighs less than one) and there are a number of educational apps available at the App Store which might be helpful for any student. 7Notes
is an addition to such apps, and brings quick note-taking to your iOS device.
