App of the week: Swing Copters

Swing-Copters_hero

When Flappy Bird disappeared from the App Store, we missed it.

We missed it so much that we tried to fill the gap. We played recreations of the game in various formats; were tempted by those auctioning off phones with the game installed; we even looked to similar games for our next quick-fix!

But the gap was there. The gap was true.

Many of us thought that Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen would never return to pocket games… until now.

4 simple steps to improve your small business cash flow

Small-Biz-Owner_hero

Jeremy Kwong-Law is one of the co-founders of Vistr, along with Mark Collins and Alex Sze. Vistr is one of nine innovative start-ups in the inaugural muru-D accelerator

Owning a small business can be very rewarding, but it takes a lot of hard work. Between managing teams, marketing your business and getting your product or service to your customers sometimes the most important things can get overlooked. Cash flow ultimately determines the survival and growth of your business, but often it’s one area which can be neglected – until it’s too late.

There have always been ways of monitoring cash flow forecasts, usually requiring hiring a full time accountant or book-keeper. But now, with the advances in cloud software, you can manage and improve your cash flow easily, quickly and cheaply.

Running out of juice? How to quickly extend your battery life

Battery-Tips_hero

My first mobile phone was a Nokia 3310; a clunky old thing that my mum insisted I carry for safety.

I didn’t want it at first, but its little green and black screen grew on me quickly. I soon found myself playing snake to pass the time, as did my friends.

We all could spend days playing that game of snake – all without recharging the phone!

How to extend the ring time of your mobile

Filed under: ,,

Extend-Ringtime-on-Mobile_hero

The other day I was cooking spaghetti when I heard the distant ring of my mobile phone.

Elbow-deep in bolognese sauce; I was in no position to try and answer. But try I did! And by the time I washed my hands, raced to the lounge room and threw around my cushions like a mad woman to find my phone, it was too late; the call had gone to MessageBank.

Deflated, I returned to my sauce (which was delicious, thanks for asking!). As it was an unknown number and they left no message, I had no idea who the call was from – and I will never know who the call was from! :(

No doubt you’ve been there before. But here’s a solution we shared a while back that I thought you’d like to be reminded of. You can extend the ring time on your mobile before it diverts to MessageBank. Genius!

Ultimate-Context-Finale_hero

On August 27 2005, Telstra Museum volunteer Les Edwards entered the record books for the fastest Morse Code sent and received.

He still holds the record to this day.

In July, we invited you to beat Les at his own game. Five contestants faced off to see who could challenge Telstra’s very own Morse code legend in a battle of ultimate messaging glory.
