    When you take the time to share your soul through writing about a service or product you've used, it suggests three things. You really like it, you dislike it, or the service or product fell short in delivering its promise. Trolls and haters try to artificially skew the sense of love or distaste about consumable items in public reviews. You and I may question the validity of these reviews. However over the long haul, opinions do even out so you can trust what you are seeing in the trends as they average out. Many of our mobile apps get tens of thousands of downloads. Many do not, but... What we always look at is the rating score, a running average of the thumbs up or thumbs down 'votes' you leave in app stores after using and engaging with our apps. Here are our Top 7 mobiles apps (as of April, 2021) based on user satisfaction ranked by your rating on a 1 to 5 scale with 5 being the top rating.   What I really like about written app reviews beyond the numeric rating is the wealth of user feedback. There is a lot to learn about fine-tuning your craft in order to meet the needs of your community of app users. As a matter of fact, several or our apps were created to answer the firestorm of criticism about the apps of other developers who just didn't have their foot on the gas. Usually, if you see a single, 3 or 4 word, one sentence summary with bad grammar many of those reviews are fakes by artificial intelligence bots that have downloaded the app using boilerplate 'review' responses to fool you. Some of these phony reviews never reference the app or what it does. When it comes to appraising public app ratings and reviews, remember the Latin phrase caveat emptor. You are responsible for checking the quality, suitability and believability of the public bulletin board. With that said, we do thank you for reviewing, rating, and enjoying all of our apps! Grab a free download, and share your opinion anytime in the review.

  • 0 Quit Smoking App Ignores Doctors Nicotine Knowledge

    What do doctors know about cigarettes, nicotine, and the toxic substances in cigarette smoke? Apparently, not enough to correctly identify the causes of cancer. A national study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, surveying more than 1,000 doctors from six specialties between September 2018 and February 2019 about their knowledge of tobacco use, found that 80 percent of those surveyed believe it is the nicotine that directly causes cancer. This Rutgers University (my alma mater) led survey asked physicians about their understanding of tobacco treatment practices, harm reduction beliefs and tobacco and e-cigarette use. A summary of the study in the publication Rutgers Today articulates the following: ----- Less than one-third of the doctors surveyed correctly agreed that nicotine directly contributed to birth defects, while 30 percent did not answer the question, indicating they did not know the answer. Younger and female doctors were more likely than males to perceive correct nicotine risks causing birth defects, while OB/GYNs surprisingly misidentified them more than other specialties. Family doctors were more likely than oncologists to misunderstand nicotine as a cancer-causing substance. ----- 34 million people smoke cigarettes in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control. It's a frightening statistic, which is why we developed and released the Android app Quit Smoking Audiobook in April, 2017 quickly followed by an iOS version. The app doesn't dive into medical debates. What it does do is offer tips to stop smoking together with alternative behaviors you can embrace during the withdrawal period. The dangers of nicotine, second-hand smoke, and the impact on heart health are all covered in the audiobook app. You'll discover an abundance of stark reminders if you aren’t already convinced or aware of the damaging effects of cigarette usage.

    The theme is People Power! See below. The first examples: smart heads creating three data driven pictures to visually simplify complex problems in the USA from COVID-19 to floods to the police. 1) In this NPR interactive map The Coronavirus Crisis Tracking The Pandemic: Are Coronavirus Cases Rising Or Falling In Your State? middle page, you can touch the circle in your state (laptop only) for the latest numbers. 2) Climate changes notwithstanding, among the 50 states, what's your home's flood factor whether or not you live in an apartment or house? Enter your zip code to find out at FloodFactor.com. 3) Garden State residents, The ForceReport.com for New Jersey lets you search the most comprehensive statewide database of police use of force in the USA by the name of a police department or an officer. ForceReport is especially important to us since we are headquartered in New Jersey. The interactive Coronavirus map, the FloodFactor risk models, and the New Jersey statewide database of police use of force hits home how simplifying the display of information helps people better understand significant issues. We all do work. Work is a job. Your work may not be "database wiz," but it matters. When we created our mobile app People Power Jigsaw Puzzle we were thinking about what people do all around us. We cover the professions and pastimes, blue and white collar, urban, suburban, and rural in the puzzles. Dive into the three data driven resources above, and have some fun with our People Power Jigsaw Puzzles for iOS and Android that you can grab free from the app stores.

    In early October, 2019 we received an email from Albert G. who asked "Is there any way to add different comments to the emojis?" The stickers Albert was referencing are called AAeMojis for iPhone and Android. This is our app. AAeMojis are 137 African American emojis. Three weeks later after his suggestion, we've come up with a brand new sister app for AAeMojis called AAeMojis Comments Editor. This is a working title and may be changed before release! The app is finished and is in extreme testing for an Android release. It couldn't be any easier to add your own comments or caption to the emojis. There are 6 emojis included in the new app that are not in the original AAeMojis. If you grabbed AAeMojis for Android, the app creates a custom gallery in your phone (if you completed that optional step). Now in the new app AAeMojis Comments Editor you can load an emoji from the app (6 included) or from your phone gallery and add you own comment or shout out using different built-in type fonts! Super cool! Here is a screen shot example using an AAeMoji from the original collection (loaded from a gallery) with a caption added: Big bonus. You can use your camera inside of the app to take pictures, then add emojis to the picture. You can also grab any image from any gallery on your phone you want, customize, save, and share. These are only a few of the app benefits. We kept things really simple without going crazy with mindless features.  If you have AAeMojis on your phone (Android) you will get an instant notification when the comments editor is available for action. Look for the release of the free AAeMojis Comments Editor in early November 2019. We'll also produce a video showing you how to use the app. ** Update October 28, 2019. Final app name is AAeMojis Caption Editor. After testing on real phones and tablets using Android 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 we have released the app! If you have an older phone, no problem! Go creative crazy using AAeMojis Caption Editor on Google Play Watch the two how-to videos below:
