iPhone App Review: Coolibah

January 16, 2010 by  
Filed under Girlie Geekness, Links and Resources, Reviews

Name: Coolibah [itunes link="http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/coolibah-digital-scrapbooking/id325079858?mt=8&uo=4" title="Coolibah_Partners-Coolibah_-_Digital_Scrapbooking"]
Written By: Coolibah.me
Category: Lifestyle
Price: $4.99 FREE

Size: 16.5 MB
Requirements: iPhone / iPod Touch
Version: 1.0
Rate: 4.5 out of 5 Stars

If you love scrapbooking, you’ll definitely love the iPhone/iPod touch app called Coolibah. It’s a premium digital scrapbooking app for all your iPhone and iPod Touch photos.

Creating a new scrapbook is very simple and only takes seconds! There’s a free kit that’s pre-installed when you purchase the app. Start a new page by picking a background for your layout. Then add a photo, a few embellishments, and maybe some text. Then viola, you’re done creating your first digital iPhone scrapbook page! Now repeat the steps by adding another page to it and another, and before you know it, you’ll have an entire book documenting your vacation or subject!

Once you’re done, export the book and the pages will be added into your Photo roll. If you like, these can be easily used to print great 4×6 prints as well, or be uploaded to various social networks.

To me, browsing the gallery is one of my favorite things to do in the app. The gallery includes beautiful kits with embellishments created by premium designers. Kits are free or costs about 99 cents each. This is denoted by a gift icon (free) or a dollar sign. You can even browse the elements in the kits before purchasing them.

Some editing features include adding one or more photos to pages, resizing, rotating, and adding shadow to embellishments, as well as sending elements to the foreground or background. There is also the undo, redo, and delete options. When selecting an element to edit, it will be highlighted in yellow. Use one finger to move it on the page, two-finger pinch to resize it, and three fingers to rotate the embellishment. You can personalize your page even further by adding text in a variety of fonts and colors.

Some features I’d like to see in future builds would be:

  • Ability to view new kits in the gallery on any type of connection (currently viewable on only wifi)
  • Ability to reorder the pages in a scrapbook
  • Ability to combine pages indifferent scrapbooks

Overall, this app is a fabulous solution on how to organize and dress up your iPhone photos, or fill in that scrapbooking itch while on the road! It’s a lot of fun, especially when you’re on vacation. It only takes a few seconds to create a fun postcard to email or post! For more tips, tutorials, and information, see the official website or the App Store.

Do You Wanna Date my Avatar Video

August 23, 2009 by  
Filed under Geek Fun & Humor, Girlie Geekness, Multimedia

If you’re a gamer, know of a gamer, play World of Warcraft, or a big Felicia Day fan, then you probably have already seen this amazing The Guild music video! The song was written by Felicia Day and Jed Whedon and I can’t seem to stop watching it!

I got my first glimpse of the video at Comic-Con 2009, and believe me, the crowd there went wild! The song and video were recently released to the public on Aug. 17th, 2009. And yes, I purchased them the minute they hit the iTune store. You can too!

If you’re interested in Felica Day’s work, check out WatchTheGuild.com, Dr. Horrible, Dollhouse, and her blog.

I'm Tweeting This

I originally bought the “I’m Tweeting This” tee from ThinkGeek to wear at Twestival LA. But when it got too cold, I put on a a TweetTee hoodie on. :) It’s quite comfy, so I thought I’d put it on today. Feeling a little sick and tired, but also quite geeky today.

*points to the bottom* I just installed the Disqus wordpress comment plugin today. Care to test it out for me? :)

The Guild

I just realized I never blogged about my favorite webisode! After seeing Mahalo Daily’s report on Comic-Con, I discovered an actress named Felicia Day who did a webisode series called The Guild.

I watched episode 10 one night and loved it. I ended up staying up the rest of the night to watch all 10 episodes! Totally loved it! The characters reminded me so much of my close friends!

The Guild is a independent sitcom webisode about a group of online gamers. It is written for gamers, about gamers by a gamer. Episodes vary from 3-6 minutes in length, and follow the Guild members’ lives online and offline.

“The Guild” is the winner of the YouTube and Yahoo 2007 Video Awards for Best Web Series, as well as recipient of the SXSW/On Networks 2007 Greenlight Award for Best Series.

Here are all 10 episodes. Let me know if you enjoyed it as much as me!
Season 1 – Watch all 10 Webisodes!

X2 Stylebook – Laptop Designed for Women

April 19, 2005 by  
Filed under Gadgets and Accessories, Girlie Geekness

*chuckles* I’m such a girlie geek. This laptop actually looks attractive to me. Well, maybe the bag is more attractive than the laptop. I just love being color coordinated. ^_^ Oh, and I love purses and bags too!

Introducing X2’s StyleBooks, the first line of notebooks designed specifically for women. Coming in chic designs and a vibrant color palette of the latest Spring colors, the StyleBook represents a new take on how notebooks are designed. The SyleBooks are designed to not only be stylish but also powerful yet compact and portable. The first notebook in the series is the StyleBook 2000, a sub-4 pound notebook that sports a 12.1” Widescreen LCD Display and a powerful Intel processor. Unlike other notebooks its size, the StyleBook 2000 features a full-size keyboard that is surprisingly easy to type on. The SyleBook is also a functional road warrior with 802.11b+g Wi-Fi wireless networking built in. On the fashion side, the StyleBook comes in a range of colors with matching coordinated laptop bags that come in your choice of Microfiber, Faux Croc, Leather and Suade material to suit your style. These bags look nothing like traditional notebook bags and virtually hide the fact that you’re even carrying a notebook. Yet, each bag has a built-in protective compartment to store and protect your notebook. Despite its stylish looks, these bags are also very functional with lots of pockets and can also be used as a purse so you don’t need to carry around two bags.
