Social Network OverView Lite: Your social feeds in one place

by: Carl ParkerNovember 29, 2012

Social networking sites have become essential parts of some people’s lives. Keeping connected to friends and family using the Internet is now one of the activities one cannot afford to skip out on, most especially when the Internet is accessible anywhere and everywhere.

Settling for just one social networking site today is not that common anymore; the more social networking sites you maintain, the more chances of not missing out on anything your friends or the whole community is currently into. With that said, news feeds are definitely important. Want an easier way to access not only your Facebook news feed but your Google+’s and Twitter’s, as well? [...]

Draw a Stickman: Adventure, RPG, and puzzle game in one

by: Carl ParkerNovember 29, 2012

Drawing was one of my frustrations when I was a kid. I would always gape in awe every time I watched my older brother draw shapes, lines, and curves with so little effort to come up with a sketch. Lacking the talent to draw, I was limited to drawing anime and basic figures. People who share the same sentiment have settled for drawing the most elementary manifestation of the human form — the stick figure.

This time around, you can watch your drawings come to life in Hitcents’ innovative game, Draw a Stickman: EPIC. The game is an adventure game, RPG, and puzzle game in one with a cool new game mechanism mixed in.

Draw a Stickman: EPIC follows [...]

Facebook Image Grabber: Saving FB photos to your phone easily

by: Carl ParkerNovember 29, 2012

Pictures, pictures, pictures; everyone just loves pictures. We collect pictures of people, events, or random silly things and store them in our albums, cameras, computers, phones, and of course, our favorite social media sites. It’s little wonder why social media sites are trending like wildfire across the Internet. And, with Mark Zuckerberg as my witness, Facebook is one of the leading social media sites where you can find a gazillion pictures.

It becomes frustrating when you’re browsing Facebook and you find a really nice picture but you can’t save it. You’ll have to wait until you get home and scour your News Feed before you find the picture [...]

by: Carl ParkerNovember 28, 2012

If you have a cluttered work desk, it becomes a challenge to find what you need right away. That’s why a lot of people spend a lot of time and effort arranging things in the way that works best for them.
