Mac OS Apps We Can’t Live Without – Part Two

It’s time for me to do my indispensable Mac Os Apps list, following Rob’s post last week. Some of the Mac OS Apps we use are the same, but we do have some noticeable differences (because I’m better, obviously 😉 just kidding, boss) Chrome (free) – while Rob is a big Safari fan I’m much more of a Chrome advocate for my browser of choice. It’s a...

Mac Apps I Use Daily – Rob

It’s amazing to think it was just 10 years ago when we hung our head each time we read the words “Available for Windows XP/2000/98 only” in the latest computer magazine. Nowadays, I could take you for a beer and chat for hours about all the great tools available for OS X. But everyone has a certain group of apps that they use every day. Those...

Hello, iPad mini

Only a few weeks ago, we were all sitting around our Macs and Apple TVs watching Tim Cook et al introduce the new iPad mini at their October special event. Few of us were surprised, we all knew deep down that Apple would one day introduce a smaller, more affordable iPad. Well here it is, the iPad mini featuring a 7.9″ screen and mostly the same...

Handheld 2012 – The Round Up

A while ago we wrote a post talking about Handheld Conference organised by Craig Lockwood. Well, it took place yesterday in St David’s Hotel, overlooking Cardiff Bay and the sea! (Although it was a bit rainy and grey, so the view of the sea wasn’t the best, boo).  The theme for the day was ‘all things mobile, web & native’ and talks covered everything from device specific...

Localization, iOS and Mac OS Resources

We spend a lot of time online at Applingua, which is probably understandable given that our entire business resides on the internet. We read blogs, tweet fun people and play with apps. (It’s a hard life). We’ve put together a list of some of our favourite resources for finding new and interesting information in the worlds of localization, iOS and Mac OS. We’re always interested to...

We Made An App! Introducing CDF Hotspots

Although it’s our bread and butter, we don’t just handle localization at Applingua. Several months ago, Neil Cocker created a WiFi Hotspots Map to help office-less nomads find WiFi in Cardiff. The map has been invaluable to the many people who have scoured the city for a fast connection, but unfortunately Google don’t make it terribly easy to navigate when you’re on the go. When you’re using a 3G connection...

5 Apps We’d Like to See Localized

Back in August Ben Thomas picked five of his favorite apps that aren’t yet localized. We’ve come up with another list of five that we think should be available in everyone’s native language. To try and spur on the developers we’re offering a 10% discount again on localization to all the apps featured in this post. Don’t say we never do anything nice for you  CoBook (Mac)...

Idiom fun! A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush

This one’s a bit of a mouthful, don’t you think? A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush is an excellent expression that can be applied to so many different scenarios. Sometimes we just don’t know how lucky we are with what we already have. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush The bible contains our first written...

Idiom fun! It’s a small world

Travel anywhere and you’re likely to find someone or something you can somehow relate to. Thanks to social networks, proving Frigyes Karinthy’s six degrees of separation (he was a translator, no less) seems to get easier every year. It’s a small world The idiom ‘it’s a small world’ is used when you meet or see people in an unexpected location or meet a person who...
