Texas Hill reverse


This app lets you give verbal richness to photos on your phone (for example, "A fun shot of our exhibitors doing business in their booth!"). You can e-mail, text, tweet, or share the images online, complete with narration! Use it to sing Happy Birthday to a coworker, or instruct the hotel as to exactly how you want that oddly-shaped room set up. Free in iTunes.


For that 2014 resolution to work more and Facebook less...Recommended by Real Simple magazine (you know, the one with the great photography), SelfControl is a free and open-source application for Mac OS X (10.5 or above) that lets you block your own access to distracting websites, your mail servers, or anything else on the Internet. Just set a period of time to block for, add sites to your blacklist, and click "Start." Until that timer expires, you will be unable to access those sites - even if you restart your computer or delete the application! Free; visit www.selfcontrolapp.com.


It's December, the holidays are coming...let's just be fun. MoviePop is quick and addicting if you're a movie buff. It shows you movie clips in various categories, and you identify the movie (or actor) as fast as you can against an opponent (you don't play at the same time). You play against other people (friends or strangers...your choice) and it's fun to play a round and come back to see if your opponent took their turn yet. The better you do, the more new clips open up to you (repetitions can get boring, but they certainly become easy to ID). Don't play around kids unless you want them to see Joe Pesci get pummeled in "Casino" (lesson learned).
Free on Apple devices and on GooglePlay for the Android.


This baby will let you test the speed of wired or wireless WiFi connections in your meeting space, venue lobby and hotel rooms. Keep in mind that speed depends on number of simultaneous users, but it's a great start!


This one looks intense but it's free in the App Store and also looks cool. There's more to it than this, but basically it allows expo attendees to use "albums" to store photos of products that catch their attention and - most interestingly -users can see a live stream of what's being snapped by other attendees (filtered to reflect the app user's interests). It's nice and voyeuristic, the way we all like it these days! The "map" section will cost, though. A lot. Read more about it here...and maybe take a pass on that part. Or not.

We can't do AppChat without you!
