I’ve just finished porting MoonCalc Pro and Biorhythms from MeeGo/Symbian to BlackBerry 10 (Z10) and got them approved by RIM for distribution in the AppWorld store. The remaining applications will be released for the Z10 within the next two weeks, followed by Sailfish OS versions for the upcoming Jolla smartphones.

It’s almost frightening how quickly technology develops these days. It doesn’t seem like too long ago that phones were simple, making calls and sending texts. Now, we have phones that are essentially full computers, with full access to the internet and all its features; video calling, music sharing, maps, everything.
It’s quite fantastic really, knowing that you have full connectivity anywhere; that millions of pages of information are at your fingertips wherever you go and you’re never cut off from the world around you. The problem is that this applies to everyone that has a mobile phone, even your children. It means they can access the internet and all its videos, social media and app stores wherever they are, away from the protection of the family home and your watchful eye.
Some parents worry about what their children get up to on the internet, and that’s only natural. There are many opportunities for mischief on the internet and some all too well known dangers too. Some parents might have already had something of a close shave or seen some warning signs, and want to prevent things from getting out of hand.
Luckily, mobile phone developers have kept up with parental pleas and included control features so parents can determine what features a child can access on their mobile – the best of these being the Parental Control app on Blackberry.
What is Parental Controls?
Parental Controls is a Blackberry app that allows you to disable or edit certain features on your child’s phone. It is available for download from the BlackBerry® App World for any users on BlackBerry® 6 or BlackBerry® 7, and a version for BlackBerry® 5 should be available very soon. Those of you that purchased your phones after Summer 2012 should already have the application on your devices, so won’t need to download it yourself.
How Parental Controls can give you peace of mind
The Parental Controls application gives you an array of options, allowing you to disable certain features entirely or just to edit or limit a feature. It doesn’t only cover internet access and apps, but the phone’s own calling and messaging features as well, and even the camera. Editable features include:
Phone Calls: using this option you can enable or disable calls to the phone. You can also limit incoming calls only to contacts stored to the phone, meaning you child won’t receive calls from anyone unknown.
Text Messages: enable or disable text messages.
Bluetooth: enable or disable direct file transfers from phone to phone over Bluetooth – your children and their friends might use this to share photos.
Location Services: use this feature to turn the phone GPS feature either off or on. This feature can show your child’s location if used with certain apps, but is also needs to be on if they want directions to a destination from their location on Google Maps.
Browser: enable or disable internet access via the phone’s web browser.
Youtube Uploader: decide whether or not your child can upload videos straight from their phone to Youtube.
Application installation: this might come in useful if your child is spending too much on apps. You can use this to disable the ability to download new apps to the phone.
Email accounts: enable or disable the addition of new email accounts to the phone.
Facebook and Twitter: enable or disable access to these two social media applications on your child’s phone.
Camera: enable or disable the camera from use.
Blackberry Messenger: allow or prohibit access to the Blackberry Messenger application.
Once your chosen settings are in place, these are locked with a four number PIN to ensure your child can’t interfere with your settings. You can then allow your child to use their phone with complete peace of mind.
More information on Blackberry Parental Controls can be downloaded from the Vodafone website. There’s also plenty of good information and discussion available to read on the Blackberry blogs.

Tablet and mobile phones are the latest devices to be widely used by consumers. Of these perhaps the most recognizable tablet is the iPad and the iPhone is the most recognizable mobile phone. While many assume that the iPad is just a larger version of the iPhone, it is in fact not. Both devices, while sharing some of Apple’s trademark technology, present some differences that affect certain activities. Among this would be gaming which has become quite popular on both devices.
When comparing the iPad and the iPhone in regards to how they perform for gaming at online casinos, size is of course the first thing one notices. The latest iPhone 5, has a display size of 4 inches in comparison to the iPad which is 9.7 inches. For those who are avid gamers, the iPad is the much better choice for gaming. While both devices do have the patented retina displays, the reduced resolution does affect gaming. Also, the hardware found within the iPad is much more powerful in comparison to the iPhone. When using the devices to play online casino games, the iPad users have found much more satisfaction.
Once you’ve made a selection between a mobile phone or a tablet, there are many casino games that can be enjoyed. You might consider the table game of baccarat. Baccarat is one of the oldest card games that once was enjoyed mainly be rich gamblers. Of course with online casinos like Lucky Nugget, this has changed. Baccarat is now much more accessible so many people have learned how to play this casino game. Players bet on which hand, the dealer or the player, will have a value closest to nine. The online version shows two hands being dealt. Only two cards are dealt however, there are some versions or special rules that do allow a third card to be dealt under special circumstances.
