Android App of the Week #1 100 Doors 2013

I thought I would start sharing what apps I have installed on my phone.  To get things going I am going to start with 100 Doors 2013. 

100 Doors 2013 is the sequel to 100 Doors. This is a challenging puzzle game where you have to figure out how to open the door to advance to the next level.  The game utilizes all the technology in you phone, for example you may need to shake your phone to get items to fall off shelves.   If you are looking for a challenge and way to pass some time give it a try.

Program of the Week #1 TeamViewer

Do you have a family member or friend that needs help with their computer?  Well TeamViewer may be of use.  TeamViewer is a remote control application.  Best of all it is free for personal use.

TeamViewer is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Mobile platforms.  With TeamViewer you will be able to access devices remotely through the Internet.  I stumbled across this application about a year ago and have been using it ever since.

TeamViewer is very simple to use.  All you have to do is download and install the application.  If you prefer not to install the application there is a instant support option.

After the application is installed or downloaded you just open it up. If the computer you are using is connected to the Internet, you will be prompted with a information window.  This windows has two parts  Allow Remote control and Control Remote computer.   The Allow Remote control portion provides the information needed to remote into your computer.  This information needs to be given to the user you want to allow remote control access.

TeamViewer has lots of features built in that I am still discovering. It definitely makes supporting family and friends much easier.  So if you are like me and need to see what is happening on the screen to repair it, check TeamViewer out.  They also have an app available on Android, IPhone, and IPad.  So you can lend a helping hand on the go or access your computer from the road.

Graph Search (Facebook)

Facebook launched its new Graph Search today.  It was announced as a way to learn more about others and make new connections.  The new search will allow you to search for people, places, photos and more.  Anytime there is a change, the first question seems to be what about my privacy.  Well Facebook says that it uses your current privacy settings and only searches content shared with you.

Unfortunately Graph is still in a beta stage. If you want to give it you can go to to join the waiting list.

The iLumina case is unique.
It allows you to customize the look of your iPhone by choosing a base case color, followed by a band color. What makes the iLuminia stand out is the inserts. There are lots of graphics and art to choose from. There will also be a mirror, card holder and other inserts available. The case is made of scratch resistant plastic.

Each iLumina will come with 1 case, 1 iBand, 1 LuminArt (insert).

There is also a iLumina APP.  The APP utilizes PUSH Technology directly to your iPhone 5.  A text notification will prompt you when you are eligible for free iBands and LuminArt.

Overall the quality is very good.  This product is great for the iPhone user that likes to change the look of their phone frequently.
