Is There An App For That?
I have been playing around with a couple of apps for my iPhone. In addition to the normal photo and weather apps, I have been looking for something that is a good substitute for my google reader. I decided to try Newsify because it had decent reviews and seemed to have the features that I wanted. It synch’s with my google reader which is nice. I know WordPress offers a reader but it doesn’t work well for non WordPress blogs and I find it a bit cumbersome to use. So far I like Newsify and may eventually add the WordPress blogs I follow to this reader. I think the cost for this app was 99 cents.
For something really different, I am also playing around with a range finder app that uses my iPhone camera. When we are throwing marks, it would be nice to know the approximate distance. We can eyeball it, but sometimes it is difficult. The one I am trying out is Distance Cam +. You slide the little icon to match the size of the objects around where you want to measure. I realize it will never be as accurate as a $400 range finder, but for 99 cents, I will give it a whirl.
Little Brown Dogs 100 Or So Yards Away Are Really Little
Yep it is true. Trying to take pictures when the dog and handler are so far away are sort of beyond my camera’s range.
It Is Beginning To Look Like Autumn
It is starting to look a bit like autumn around here. Leaves are starting to turn and fall and the temperatures are finally cooler. The lake where we trained the other day looked beautiful.
I am sure we will have some warm weather before winter hits, but for now, I am enjoying the beginning of fall.
