Two-Tap reminder now working on Windows Phone 8 – with voice commands

We added voice-command support to the best quick-and-dirty reminder app out there! Two taps are all you need to set a simple reminder, and 3 taps to set a reminder with text on it. With the Windows Phone 8 version, you can use voice commands to set up reminders. Pinning reminder-types to the start screen means you can pick and choose the ways you want to be reminded and use them as quickly as possible. In this version, you can also set up alarms (the benefit of which is that they will sound even when the phone is muted!)!).

To use voice commands, say one of the following:

  • Two tap, remind me about the kitchen in 30 minutes.
  • Two tap, remind me about the kids at 5:30 PM
  • Two tap, remind me about the kids tomorrow at 7:30 AM
  • Two tap, remind me about taking over thw world on Thursday at 5:30 PM
  • See all the options available for you by using the Voice Command help option

Clipboard Call – sweet and simple

There’s not a lot to say about Clipboard Call because it does one thing and does it well.. When you are in an app (Text, WhatsApp, Email etc) and you see a phone number that’s not recognized as such, you can copy that number, paste into this app, fix it, and call the number. That’s it! Nothing more nothing less. It’s free and without ads.

Social Birthday Tile now support sending birthday cards to friends on Facebook!

Version 2.5 of Social Birthday Tile is now available for download on the marketplace. With this version, we are adding the ability to create and send birthday cards directly to your friends’ wall. The feature is still in beta, but we feel like it’s cooked enough that users can start playing with it. One of the nice aspects of this is that the app will automatically search for photos tagged with both you and your friend – if it finds them, it will automatically place one of them on the card (and allow you to change it of course). we hope everybody likes this feature and use it!

The app is free to try and costs 99 cents to buy in the US.

Bubble Porn 1.2 released – get rid of ads + more content

Example of the generated image:

The brain is a pretty powerful piece of engineering. Part of what makes it so powerful is it’s capacity for imagination. Bubbling, Bubble Porn or “Mormon Porn”, are names for an optical illusion that makes your brain “fill in” gaps in an image with elements that were not originally there. The “Bubble Porn” app lets you view examples of this optical illusion as well as use your own photos (or photos from the web) to create the same effect.

The new version adds a few interesting features. First, it’s much easier to create Bubble Porn images now – the interface has been greatly simplified. On top of that, the app now has the ability to share your bubble porn (which you can create by using images from Image Search on the web, or from your own album) with the other app users – if your bubble porn becomes popular, the ads will be removed from the app!

northpolephotoboothqr

  • Use your own photos to generate bubble porn images.
  • Built in image-search capability will let you find your favorite pictures to bubble.
  • Simplified process for creating bubble porn
  • Share your work through Email, Text of Social Networks.
  • Save your images to the phone to show your friends.
  • Automatic imgur uploading to make sharing easier..
  • See what other users decided to share
  • Get rid of ads by creating popular bubble porn images!

Share To Friend & Group released to the Marketplace

Windows Phone has really good Social capabilities – the ability to easily share status and photos to your wall are one of the things that separates it from the rest of the pack. What it does lack, is the ability to easily share status updates and photos to friends and groups. With Friend & Group Share (wow! What an original name!), you can now do this with as little as 4 clicks. On top of that, the app is accessible from the share menu, so it’s very easy to share that special photo to your group or friend directly from the Picture hub or immediately after taking it.

Features

  • Integrates with the Sharing capabilities of Mango.
  • Recent photos makes selecting an image a breeze. You of course have access to all your albums as well.
  • Recently used groups propagate to the top so they are easy to find.
  • Recent friends have their own pivot pane so you can quickly find them.
  • Trial is fully functional – if you run out of shares, there’s an option to ask for an extended trial.
