Everyone has their favorite Bond growing up and with every passing generation there’s a new Bond actor, movie and book. This app helps you track everything Bond.
James Bond, Licenced to Thrill
Everyone has a favorite Bond and a James Bond they remember growing up with. There have been so many books, movies and even video games spanning a total of 60 years since it’s first conception in 1953 by author, journalist and naval intelligence officer Ian Lancaster Fleming that we thought we needed a handy device to log all this great entertainment.
This app was a lot of fun to create. As well as being huge fans of Bond, we love putting together useful apps to help make life a little more fun and a little easier to handle especially when there is so much information out there.
Have you looked at the web lately, phew, you can get lost out there.
We started to find that we just couldn’t remember what we had watched – call it loss of brain matter or the advancing years creeping up on us I guess! Was there a new movie, book or game out that we’d be interested in and if there was wouldn’t it be great to have something handy to help us find the info as well as help us remember too.
We’ve done the hard work for you. Let me be your Q and explain how this app works…and Bond, please do try not to break it…

The Talk! Speech Synthesizer App for iOS is a lot of fun. Add some fun phrases or words that you like to say a lot and let your device speak for you.
How it works?
Open the app on either your iPhone or iPad and tap the + sign to add a new phrase. Once it’s been stored just tap the phrase and your iOS will begin to speak your phrase back to you. Keep adding as many phrases as you like.
You can also change the language and hear your phrase in your particular dialect or try some out just for fun. Select from British, American, Australian, German, South African, Irish to name but a few and choose whether you would like a male or female voice.
There’s also an option to change pitch and speed rate so you can play around with a high or low voice and make the voice speak really fast or ultra slow.
The app is currently available for iPhone but you can supersize it to fit the iPad screen for now. There are plans to release an iPad interface as well as iCloud integration to make it easier to share your phrases across multiple devices.
You can download Talk! Speech Synthesizer on the App Store. Check it out today and enjoy!
Miss Jane Marple comes to iOS so you can keep track of your favorite knitting detective on your iOS device. Easily track all your favorite Books, Movies and TV shows.
Miss Marple, the nosy but friendly busy-body, now on iOS
If you love all things Agatha Christie, but especially everyone’s favorite spinster amateur detective Miss Jane Marple, then you are in for a treat with our new app – Miss Marple for iOS.
The thing about Miss Marple, is that you can’t really ignore her, even though you may not see her at first. She moves around like some frail old lady often muttering something of great importance under her breath and the only sound you may hear is the faint clicking away of needles in the distance, expertly putting a new knitting project together.
Come to think of it, has anyone ever seen any of her finished results? A jumper for her nephew perhaps or a scarf for one of her many ladies that lunch or take tea and cake in her wonderful garden. I’m not sure I have, but then it’s all part of the devious mask behind the clever brain that’s working on so many things at once.
Settle in and I’ll explain how the app that we have made will help you keep track of all your favorite movies, books and tv shows.
Spruce up your space with a splash of color. It has been well documented that having white or magnolia walls keeps things neutral but you don’t have to live somewhere that looks too clinical or boring
The Wall…A Blank Canvas
It has been well documented that having white or magnolia walls keeps things neutral, but you don’t have to live somewhere that looks too clinical or boring, even if it is calm and will help you sell your home in the future.
So why not make an impact and a statement showcasing some fabulous artwork on your wall.
The key to adding color to your home, is to pick some pieces that make a statement and draw the eye to one or two items that you want to make the centerpiece of your design. Adding accessories and art that can be swapped out, moved around or changed when you fancy a different look is much easier than getting the decorators back in.
Murder, She Wrote has long been a classic TV show and the books are a great way to indulge our addiction. Let me show you a few novels you may have missed along the way.
Murder, She Wrote
I’ve always been a bookworm right from an early age. I love words. Put those words into a great story and I can lose myself in the journey for hours.
I like Mysteries, they can be in the form of novels, movies or a TV series. I guess I have a brain that likes to help the good guys save the day and help solve the crime from the comfort of my couch. Don’t you?
That’s what I love about the Murder She Wrote series. The descriptions are wonderful and as the story is told from Jessica Fletcher’s perspective you feel like you are seeing everything through her eyes, so ultimately you are drawn into solving the who dun-nit? They are also an easy read, just what you want if you have a busy life.
I especially like a good mystery novel to read with a nice cup of coffee, relaxing on those long hazy days sitting outdoors in the park or in my own backyard or even on my Summer vacation. Summer is Summer wherever you are, so as long as the sun is shining and you have a good book to read, your favorite drink next to you and a relaxing setting, getting lost in the plot of the story will be easy.
Intrigued enough to carry on? I hope so, as I want to share my fascination and love of the Murder, She Wrote books. I’m sure you’ve seen the popular TV show, maybe even the original when it first aired and countless re-runs in-between, but did you know there are some great novels too?
Are you sitting comfortably, don’t forget that drink, then we’ll begin…

We had a lot of fun putting this app together. We found that we were losing track of which books we had read, I know that sounds impossible but it’s true, maybe it’s the advancing years of age shrinking our little grey cells but we needed some help. Even if you don’t forget which books, movies or shows you have read or watched, it is also useful as an aide to ensure you don’t miss anything.
So hence the app was conceived and born.
I’ve put together this article to delve into the app and help you understand how it works.
