Here’s looking at you kid! New mobile app for families

New free mobile app 23snaps offers parents a private social network to keep close family and friends updated on their children’s lives

Grandparents all over the world will be celebrating the launch of 23snaps, the new free app that enables parents to privately share with a select network of family and friends, every special moment of their child’s lives. Featuring real-time updates of photos and footage, the app links families via their iPhone, iPad, or an email alert, so they can instantly see the first smile, step, or word!

23snaps is the brainchild of technology entrepreneur and father-to-be Ivailo Jordanov who says: “We thought there needed to be a quick and easy way to capture your child’s special moments, keep them in one place, always with you, and share them with your loved ones in real time. There is no better place to do this than on your phone. There are existing social networks where you are connected with a wide group of people, whereas 23snaps enables you to share these private moments with a small hand-selected group of family and close friends.”

Developed by a team of fathers and fathers-to-be the app will keep your family connected, simply and speedily, just add a child to your profile and get snapping! Mark the moments in your children’s lives on a virtual timeline and ‘tag’ them in different entries, whether it’s a photo, video, status update or a development milestone. The updates are in real-time, so the second something is added, your chosen few will get an instant notification. And if you don’t have an iPhone, no problem! Group members can still receive all posts, photos and updates via email in a daily or weekly package.

But more than just for family members, the app is perfect for parents themselves who are forced through work to spend time away from their family. Whether that be short business trips abroad or more prolonged periods of time such as working in the armed forces, wherever you are, the app allows you to stay connected with your child so you can still enjoy their every precious move.

The app allows families to share ‘snapshots’ in time. And with the 23rd chromosome deciding your baby’s sex – either an X (girl) or a Y (boy), and the combination of the two determining what you’re having – ‘23’ ‘snaps’ was born!

Cool music sharing site: This is my Jam

This is my Jam is a cool new music sharing site where you can recommend tracks to your friends and followers.

Each week you can pick a new track (your “jam”), which is optionally shared over Twitter and Facebook. Your friends will similarly be recommending tracks and you can listen to them all in one set list – a kind of mix tape for the 21st century. You can also listen to a random jam, drawn from the thousands on the site, or a popular jam, which has had the most listens this week.

One downside of the site is that the list of songs is not comprehensive, but this has been nicely sidestepped by allowing subscribers to also select their jam from YouTube music videos, widening the selection considerably.

Fitness at your fingertips with ThinQ fitness app

Have you ever wanted a one-to-one yoga class outdoors instead of sharing a stuffy room in a gym or having to watch a DVD at home? Maybe you would just like to learn to dance, take up martial arts, or squeeze in some cardio training, in your own time, wherever you choose?

Online fitness video provider ThinQ Fitness (www.thinqfitness.com) has launched a brand new free App which will help those who want step-by-step fitness training take their favourite classes wherever and whenever they like. The App will allow users to stream hundreds of simple video fitness classes, which are currently available on the main website, from their iPhone and iPad.

From aerobics to belly dancing there are plenty of different workouts to try. There are even workouts that you can try at the gym. The app is free and you have access to a wide selection of videos but you can always upgrade to a ThinQ Fitness membership so that you can watch all the videos on the site for only £4.99 a month.

A qualified Personal Trainer takes you through each video step-by-step and gives you pointers on how to do the workout safely. You can also pick videos that suit the amount of time you have available, for example, if you are on your lunch break and only have time for a quick workout you can pick a 10 minute routine.

The App is simple to use – pause, rewind, fast forward all at the touch of a button. You won’t even need to bring a music player with you as each video session has music you’ll want to sing along to.

ThinQ Fitness App users can also browse all the latest health, fitness and nutrition articles straight from professional health and fitness experts using the ‘Lifestyle’ feature, and benefit from regular advice from personal trainers using the Blog feature.
