Apps Uncovered 3 November 2019 – Oh, The Horror!

Selected by Bob Weil Here in the United States earlier this week, we recognize All Hallow’s Eve (Halloween) as a holiday for children (and adults) to dress up in costume and frighten one another while collecting a cache of candy, or simply enjoying a night on the town.This week’s Apps Uncovered celebrates frightening, mysterious or

Apps Uncovered 20 October 2019 – In Nature’s Realm

Selected by Bob Weil This week’s Apps Uncovered presents a selection of images of nature posted to our Flickr group over the last week – all of spring, summer or fall, before the season rapidly gives way to winter.
