Is This New Phone Dongle Breathalyzer The Most Accurate? [Indiegogo]


The makers of Floome, a new breathalyzer dongle that clips into a smartphone’s headphone jack, say their gadget is more accurate than the Breathometer breathalyzer we featured in March, because Floome is equipped with a key ingredient missing from the former: a flowmeter.

Pixter, A Fast, Accurate And Good-Looking OCR App For iPhone


A few months back, I spent far too many hours trying to find an app which would scan a page of text and turn into actual, editable text. I found none. Or rather, I found nothing good.

Not only can I most of the time not get iOS 6 Maps to give me a correct  [Read More…]
