On my iPhone/Android…Saga – The Essential Lifelogging App

Saga – The Essential Lifelogging App

Download Saga for iPhone | Download Saga for Android

I have always had a desire to remember where I have been and what I have been doing. As you might imagine, my iPhone has made this even easier to do and also able to capture much more information. I have tried out a variety of apps for my phone, including Latitude, Foursquare and more, but Saga is looking to be the latest, and best app for capturing as much about my life as possible.

Battery life is often a concern when using any location based app, but Saga seems to have limited the burden on the battery by using other sensors in the iPhone to let it know when it needs to turn on the GPS system and locate you.

Saga allows me to confirm when I am at a particular place, notes my travel time between locations and also integrates my Facebook and Twitter posts in each day's journal.

Elsewhere Online: AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive

This story from TechDirt lays out yet another reason I recommend that folks DON'T use the email provided to them by their ISP. My typical recommendation right now is to get a Gmail account instead. It also points out why I want to manage all my SPAM on my end, without pre-filtering from an ISP. I will gladly manage my spam if it helps to insure that I see as many of my "real" messages as possible. Again, Gmail's tools work pretty good in this regard. Having an alternative email account also insures you will keep the same email, even if you decide to leave your current ISP. Witness all the folks holding onto AOL accounts just to keep their AOL email address. Thank goodness at least that is free now. AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive You can certainly understand why ISPs offer spam filters. It's a service for users who don't want to be totally bombarded with spam. But what I've never understood is that these ISPs rarely give the us

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...
