FlexBright iPad and iPhone App Review

This is a review on the FlexBright App for iPad and iPhone. FlexBright will help keep your eyes healthy and detect eye fatigue throughout the day. The familiar glow of small cellphone screens and tablets in a darkened room is a familiar sight to most Americans, and with an increasing number using these smart devices every year, eye health problems are on the rise.

The blue light that emanates from these devices has been linked to eye fatigue, and has even been shown to prevent a good night’s sleep—even if the brightness has been adjusted. Raleigh, NC company Intelligent Apps’ new offering, FlexBright, offers a smart solution to this ticking health time bomb.

“Using your smart devices during the night time exposes the eye to blue light which simply isn’t naturally present, which fools the brain into thinking that it’s earlier than it really is,” said the CEO of Intelligent Apps, Sam Aljamal. “Combined with an overly bright phone light, or even over-dimming of the light, eye strain joins in. Over time, that has a catastrophic effect on the quality of your sleep—and your actual eyesight. We created FlexBright as a way to minimize this risk.”

FlexBright highlights:

-Smart eye strain calculator to monitor exposure to blue light.

– Prompt you if high blue light exposure is detected before bedtime.

– Provide warning and exercises to rest your eyes when high strain is detected throughout the
day.

– Set daytime brightness and nighttime brightness for your device

– App will determine your local sunrise and sunset times to use for day and night brightness if
you like

– App will record your device brightness for 24 hours and present it in beautiful and dynamic
bar chart.

FlexBright works in the background monitoring users’ exposure to blue light, prompting users to change their screen brightness to acceptable levels when eye-strain has been detected, as well as an automatic adjustment for the screen’s brightness at certain times of day, including sunrise and sundown.

For data lovers, an analytical tool has been included in Flexbright, offering dynamic charts that show you all the adjustments that the app has made over the past twenty-four hour period.

Doctors have noted in recent years that not only does blue light disrupt the body’s natural circadian rhythm —the natural human cycle of sleep and wakefulness—but also disrupts melatonin, the sleep hormone. However, a disrupted melatonin cycle also spells bad news for general health: it also works as an antioxidant that many researchers say may help slow the progression of cancer and other serious health issues that come later in life.

The smart thing for all users of cellular and tablet devices to do is to protect their eyesight and melatonin production by installing FlexBright. The app automatically adjusts screen brightness and offer prompts when it is time to take a break from watch YouTube, catching up on emails or browsing social media. FlexBright is currently available for iPhone and iPad, and can be downloaded at the Apple store.

Turmeric: The Healthy Wonder Spice

Turmeric: The Healthy Wonder Spice

In an article by world-renowned holistic doctor, Andrew Weil, MD, entitled, 3 Reasons to Eat Turmeric, under the heading, What is Turmeric? He states:

“Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a culinary spice that spans cultures – it is a major ingredient in Indian curries, and makes American mustard yellow. But evidence is accumulating that this brightly colored relative of ginger is a promising disease-preventive agent as well, probably due largely to its anti-inflammatory action.”

The article goes on to state that, “…turmeric appears to outperform many pharmaceuticals in its effects against several chronic, debilitating diseases, and does so with virtually no adverse side effects.”

The Turmeric Extract Curcumin Found to Reduce Symptoms of Anxiety and Depression in a Recent Study Out of Australia

A randomized, double-blind study of the benefits of turmeric/curcumin as it applies to anxiety and depression recently backed up the results of former studies that showed the effectiveness of the turmeric extract in functioning as an anxiolytic. Dr. Adrian Lopressor, who headed up the research study at Murdoch University in Australia, said:

“Curcumin’s positive antidepressant and anti-anxiety effects are likely due to its ability to normalize specific physiological pathways. It appears to elevate neurotransmitters such as serotonin, while lowering stress hormones, such as cortisol, and is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Curcumin also provides protection to the brain.”

Speaking of protecting the brain, it seems that multiple studies have shown that the turmeric/curcumin extract is almost a wonder spice/herb. Of its many amazing benefits, the following are sited:

Anxiety and Depression

Alzheimer’s Disease

Heart Disease

Cancer

Arthritis

Longevity

Anti-aging

Studies have now revealed that what seems to account for the multiple health benefits found in the turmeric/curcumin extract are due in large part to its very strong and powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

It should be noted that the curcumin found in turmeric, although extremely low in weight, is what mostly accounts for the health benefits. Curcumin alone does not absorb well into the bloodstream. It is therefore important to be sure that it is combined with piperine (or bioperine). The piperine boosts absorption by about 2000%. If the turmeric/curcumin extract is taken alone, most of the extract will pass through your digestive tract without giving you the benefits you are trying to achieve.

While we are siting the benefits of turmeric/curcumin, here is another one that you will want to keep in mind. Due to its strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, curcumin strongly fights free radicals. But it gets even better. It stimulates your body to boost its own antioxidants.

With all of this research evidence, it’s no wonder that it prompted Kris Gunnars, a nutrition researcher with a BSc, to state the following:

“Turmeric may be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence.”

Jestr Social Media App Review

Today we review the social media app named Jestr. Jestr is a social media app built by comedians, but it’s for everyone. Share jokes with your friends and links to online content that make you laugh, check out the top trending humor among your friends and the world, and discovery jokes by new, rising comedy stars. Think of it as social media without all the negativity.

Do you think your friends aren’t funny? Than the Jestr App is probably not for you. If on the other hand your friends are rising comedy stars than the Jestr App is definitely something you should download. The app lets you share jokes with your friend or that hilarious video you found on Youtube. The IOS App gets a 5 out of 5 rating out of 15 reviewers.

To me this app seems like a great idea. Who else gets tired of the endless rants and raves on social media. There needs to be more comedy in everyone’s life and this app may just succeed in this pursuit.

Whopple.com Income Generating Social Media Network Review

An Indiegogo campaign has been launched to raise funds for the development of Whopple, a new and rewarding social sharing network designed to financially benefit its members. The platform allows social media users to capitalize on their activity through a unique sponsorship network. Users have the opportunity to not only engage with sub-sites that feature content of interest, but also sponsor them.

“Whopple is going to change the way you think about social media sharing,” said Jeff Baugh, founder. “For years I have wanted to build a better and entertaining method of earning an income online. With Whopple, you build themed sub-sites and share favorites just like you would on Facebook or Pinterest and you get paid to sponsor sites on the network.”

To join, users sign up at Whopple and choose a unique name for their site. It is recommended, but not required, that users build sites that are theme-specific. Once their site is established, they can begin sharing and finding other sites on topics of interest which they can request to sponsor. Users are allowed to sponsor up to six sites per every one site that they build.

Paid Whopple users participate in the platform’s sponsorship network starting at $25 per month with the basic package. This level is geared towards the every day social sharing person and includes the ability to post status updates and turn their favorite news feeds and social feeds into RSS feeds on their websites. The package also gives them access to a blogging platform powered by WordPress, a question and answer application, Wiki pages and a custom post type creator.

A business package is available for $250 per month and includes all of the tools featured in the basic package, plus tools for running a niche commerce website. Business package tools include a shopping cart system and store builder, membership manager, classified ads application, appointment management application, fundraiser application, job and freelance work posting application and professional and business profile publishing.

Free, affiliate-only packages are available for users who don’t want to participate in the sponsorship network but still enjoy the fun of Whopple. They have the ability to earn a reoccurring affiliate commission on members they refer to the website.

The founder of Whopple has established a crowdfunding goal of $25,000 primarily to support the cost of hosting a high traffic social media network. A portion of the funds raised will also be invested in marketing and graphic design.

Contributions of $1 or more will be rewarded. Perks include a shout out on the company’s Facebook community page, early adapter status, which includes an increase in sponsorship bonus earnings and affiliate earnings, handwritten thank you notes, bumper stickers, discounts on monthly membership fees, placement on a special curated page, and official t-shirts and badges.

For more information about Whopple and to participate in the crowdfunding campaign, visit the Indiegogo campaign page: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/you-need-to-whopple/#/
