HBO Now

It was only a matter of time until HBO joined the ranks of Hulu Plus and Netflix to offer a monthly subscription service. With more and more people cutting the cord and opting out of cable subscriptions, this is the perfect way to enjoy the excellent programming HBO has to offer.  Award winning shows like Game of Thrones, VEEP, and endless documentaries like The Jinx at our fingertips for only $14.99 a month? Yes please!

 

 

iExit

Ever been on a road trip and had to rely on billboards to find the next rest stop to walk your dog or grab a bite to eat — only to find that no pets are not allowed and the Starbucks has been turned into an oil change station? Frustrating. How awesome would it be to never rely on highway and billboard signs again? Look no further than iExit!  iExit uses a smartphone’s location to determine where a user is located on the interstate and then displays upcoming exits and businesses without the press of a button. Its powerful search engine allows users to filter upcoming exits by whatever they’re looking for, whether that’s for a business, an amenity, or a location. The Search experience has been completely rethought in it’s latest update and comes with 25 “preset searches” designed to quickly address common road trip needs.

Sleep Cycle

Mornings can be a drag. Sometimes no matter how much sleep we get, waking up can feel just plain terrible! We’ve tried Sleep Cycle and we love the results! And you don’t have to take our word for it, it’s been featured in CNN, Wired, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, BBC, The New York Times and many more.  Place your smartphone under your pillow and the app actually monitors your movement during sleep using the extremely sensitive accelerometer in your phone.  Sleep Cycle then finds the optimal time to wake you up during a 30 minute window that ends at your set alarm time. Amazing! Waking up the natural way to wake up feeling rested and relaxed. Two thumbs up!
