    Geolary Shows How Your Salary Lives Up to Your Neighbours’ 

    We’ve all heard the saying “Keeping up with the Jones’”. Well, now with a new iPhone app called Geolary, you can see if you’re even financially able to compete with your neighbours in the race to flaunt the latest and greatest.

    This new app, Geolary, gives you a pretty sound idea of where your income level compares to others in your neighbourhood – or in other locations you might be consider moving to. Wait… what??, you ask? How is that possible? Well, the app asks you for your own salary and then compares it based on location to other salary data, letting you know where you stand in comparison. So you can soon find out why your neighbour just drove home in a shiny, new Mercedes while you’re buffing out scratches on your Corolla.

    Geloary requires location data to work, and will localize your income based on your country’s currency, automatically. Once you’ve picked a location to search, the app tells you the lowest and average salary in the area. It also delivers the gap between your salary and the salaries of others.

    The app is useful if you’re in the job market and want to know what you’d need to earn to maintain your income at a level that the rest of those in the area you are searching are at. Nothing like a little bargaining power.

    Efficient and Effective (and Free) Mobile Apps For Busy Folks – DigiFams 

    If you’re like me, you probably at one point have downloaded a lot of apps because they’re…well…FREE, but only to find out that they either just waste your time and not worthy of the space it occupied or it becomes one that only gets used when killing time. Well, after 2 years of carrying a smart phone I finally narrowed down my list of apps. I kept the ones I use frequently and are now my mainstay iPhone residents that I can’t do without. These are ones that keep me efficient and effective as I go about my daily routine.

    New Apps for Your Smartphone, November Edition 

    There are some 225,000 mobile applications for the iPhone now and 70,000 for Android, so every so often we like to highlight a few that have caught our attention. This latest edition of our favorite smartphone apps includes a few in testing, a few we’re madly in love with, some notable updates and some you may not have even heard of yet.

    New & Awesome

    Instagram (iPhone): OK, we’re dubbing this one the “app of the month.” Initially called Burbn, the original app was transformed into Instagram, a photo-sharing service and image editor. With a number of built-in filters, you can turn your iPhone photos into more attractive and interesting versions of themselves, then share them either publicly or privately with fellow app users. Your friends’ photos are in a section called “Feed” and the most popular photos from across Instagram are found in the “Popular” section. While what Instagram is doing is not revolutionary, there’s something to be said for a well-designed app like this. There’s no learning curve here, it’s easy and, frankly, it’s just fun. Oh yeah, it’s totally free, too. (Download)
