Catch: Organize Notes from the Messy Desk



Catch
Catch

Steve Brown, CEO of Catch joined us. It’s a private journal for all your ideas on your mobile device. Catch takes the messy desk and lets the organization come together.

You just put your information in the phone. Tag it with specific names. Then, when you want to look back, search on the tags.

Catch looks at the stories. Instead of post-it notes all over the place, you can have the journal on the phone.

Steve was also catching all lyrics from his band. That way, he could come back to get all the words they were thinking of.

Catch Notes is a free service, and available on Android and iOS devices.

It includes “Find a Parking Spot” apps, and access to your entire media library that is already on your smartphone.  App Radio 2, introduced at CES2012, adds full Android support.

PrivacyStar: Call and SMS Blocking for Android and Blackberry



If you want to insure that you are on the Election Year “Do Not Call” list, this is the app for you.

Privacy Star allows you to block numbers from annoying pollsters and solicitors, and if they get really obnoxious, report them to the Federal Trade Commission.  Similar calls from bill collectors including date, time and frequency are logged for action.

There’s also an optional Do Not Disturb mode, which forwards all non blocked incoming calls to voicemail with the option to send a custom text message acknowledging the call.

IonRoad: Android Co-Pilot App Monitors Traffic



A Smart Phone Equals a Smarter Driver

This app from iOnRoad turns your Smartphone into a Personal Driving Assistant. This app (Android now, iOS to come) mounts in the center of your windshield and uses the built in video camera to look at the road ahead. It then computes the closing speed to vehicles or objects ahead and sounds a warning if things are moving too fast.

What does this mean ? It means that there are another pair of ‘eyes” on the road immediately in front of you. Collision warning, lane departure warning, and when you leave the car, a handy feature that allows you to locate your car when you come back after a flight.

CastIV iPhone, iPad, Tuner Mounts for Musicians – CastIV Sidekick – CES 2012



Castiv

There are many smartphone-tablet holders out there. CastIV is one of them, but they look to add a little more than just a stand.

Geared toward the musician, the CastIV sidekick allows you to put your iPhone or iPod in eyeshot so you can practice your tunes. Even a Korg guitar tuner fits well in the sidekick. Just place the belt on the strings, push together and clip with the mount.

If you would rather have the iPod, Android device or iPhone on your microphone stand, well, they make an interchangable clip so you can cuff it on the stand, put the device in place and start playing.

For those iPad or other tablet owners out there, you can also get the Tab station – a mount for your iPad that connects to a tripod or microphone stand.

The Guitar Sidekick and smart station are $24.99, with the Tab station for $34.99

YooTechPros Android Tablet



Todd talks with Ernest Wolf, CEO of YooTechPros, creators of an Android-based tablet PC that actually looks quite good.

Using the same LG touch screen as the iPad, this tablet offers twin USB ports, a microSD slot, front- and rear-facing cameras and runs Android 2.2. It’s also slightly lighter and thinner than the iPad. Unfortunately, the model in the video is a non-working prototype but it does look good. $399 for the 16 GB, wifi version and available in the Spring.

For the germ-adverse of us, YouTechPros offers an antibacterial screen film for tablets called the iProtector for $19.99.
