Dinner on Demand

October 14, 2015

 

IMG_4416Don’t you sometimes wish you could order up a fresh, homemade dinner instead of your regular repetroire of takeout? Well, New York City friends, now you can!
We are excited to announce that we just partnered with a new app called Homemade, which allows you to order featured meals and food items from local cooks around the city. You can arrange to pick up your dinner to enjoy in the privacy of your own home, without the shopping, cooking or dirty dishes. Delivery options are also available.

We will be offering full meals, as well as select baked goods starting next week. Let us know what you would like our first dish to be in the comments below, and then head over to the app store and download HOMEMADE. We’ll be there next week as Indigo Jones Eats. 

We can’t wait to make dinner for you soon!

Sites We Love: Slimkicker

October 2, 2012

You all know I can be a bit obsessive when it comes to exercise and nutrition. My concept is to eat as perfectly and healthfully as possible, except when I choose not to.

Ok, I know what you are thinking; don’t we all do that?

The answer is yes, but most people choose to eat poorly more often than not.
Keeping a food and exercise journal is one way to keep yourself honest, and to really understand what you are eating and how much activity you are doing.  There are many on-line journals and apps available to do this.

Slimkicker is both a website and a free smartphone app, that not only helps you log your activity and food intake, but also tracks your intake of sodium, sugar, fiber and fat. Unlike other sites, it helps you set goals and lets you know when it’s time to reward yourself for your hard work.

There is also an on-line community of Slimkickers to offer support, comments or even serve up group challenges.

The company launched in March 2012, and has plans to expand their services in 2013.

Don’t Be A Slouch

May 9, 2012

Everyday, I start out sitting at my desk with near perfect posture. That very quickly deteriorates into a slouch, and by 4:00 I have slipped down so low in my chair, that my feet are under someone else’s desk.

Sound familiar? Guess what? There’s an app for that!

LUMOback is currently developing a flexible wireless sensor, that will monitor and measure the wearer’s posture. When the user slouches, it will send gentle vibrations to the small of the back, as a reminder to sit up straight. The sensors are connected to a mobile app that not only monitors the user’s posture, but also offers advice on back health.

The LUMOback app is still in development but expects to be ready to launch their Beta program soon.

Check out their website to be part of the trail.

Gay? There’s an App for That!

March 24, 2011

Apple has recently withdrawn the “anti-gay” iPhone application, created by religious group, Exodus.

The app is purported to cure homosexuality by giving users a chance of “freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus.”

The free application is aimed at helping “ those struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction to live a life congruent with biblical teaching.”

A Facebook campaign accrued over 146,000 signatures, in an effort to get Apple to remove the app from the iTunes store.  As of today, the app is no longer available, and a donation to fight California’s gay marriage ban has been made by the company.

Isn’t it ironic, that in an age of high technology and futuristic thinking, that an app was created to promote an antiquated and bigoted point of view?

It just goes to show you, that there truly is an app for just about anything these days.
