App Review – Secret Word

This application was released on August 31, 2009 into the App Store.  I am often having to reset some of the employees passwords since they are always forgetting them or what not.  This tool has helped me come up with some very nice random passwords to use for them instead of thinking up something that will satisfy the password requirements.  I like the ability to be able to include symbols and also to turn that off.  I have noticed that if I set a maximum password length that sometimes it will be longer than what I specify.  Other than that, great little utility to have on your iPhone, especially for the IT Admins.  Below is the applications description.  Head on over to the App Store and download Secret Word today!

Secret Word Description:

Secret Word is a clean and easy to use password generator.  It can make passwords between 4 and 12 characters in length, using letters, numbers, and optionally symbols.

Making a new, secure password is as easy as tapping the reload symbol, or shaking your device.

Tap the password to save it to the clipboard, or email it anywhere with the built-in email interface.

App Review – iPoisonX

This application was released on July 31, 2009 into the App Store.  This app has a beautiful interface from the menu to the text scrolling above the graphic background.  It looks like a very informative application to help you out with the poison ivy family.  I would love to see this application evolve into more than this, snakes, spiders, insects, etc.  The only other thing that could make this application be any better would be to have multiple pictures and/or the ability to add your own pictures to this.  I have shown our kids this out in the woods before but went back over all of this with them again, great little science lesson.  Below is the applications description.  Head on over to the App Store and download iPoisonX today!

iPoisonX Description:

Do you know what Poison Ivy looks like?  Better yet, do you know what Poison Oak or Poison Sumac look like?  No, you say?  Well, if you plan on spending any time outside this season then you need to learn how to spot them now and what to do if you get Poison Ivy/Oak/Sumac on your skin.

This is a must have pocket resource for hikers and campers alike.
