No matter what activities the family has planned for you on Sunday, you'll be able to stay up to date with the US Open. The tournament starts tomorrow, but the real action won't be until the final round on Sunday.
The official app of the U.S. Open Golf Championship features 4 channels of live streaming coverage, live score updates, shot-by-shot states, plus a map of the course – complete with current players wherabouts! You can also set the app to sent alerts when there's a scoring update for your favorite player or players.
Stopping for gas on the way home from work, blocking out a few hours for an oil change or a car wash are a thing of the past with this app!
Sign-up for the service and the Yoshi crew will stop by your work once a week to fill up your tank, or they'll take it for an oil change and a wash. You don't need to worry about it, they'll take care of it all for you.
Note: Nothing about this is free. There's a $20/month membership fee, plus the price of gas and oil-changes. BUT, your first month's membership is free.
Cleveland is one of 12 cities across the country where Yoshi is available.
Students at Rocky River High School have developed an app that can help in an active shooter situation. The app uses crowed sourced information to track the shooter in real time.
The idea: Every student and teacher have the app on their phone. When there is an active shooter situation, they open the app and it tracks their location in real time. If they see the shooter they press on the screen and their name pops up, like a location on a Google Map, and says [for instance] “Dan Deely just saw the shooter here”.
Every time someone presses the screen, it plots a point on the school map. Not only does it show you where the shooter is, it shows where he's been, and gives you an idea where he's going. Letting students and teachers know whether to hunker-in-place, or its okay to run.
They're still testing the app, so it isn't widely available yet.
But in some of their drills, the school says they've had half the student body out of the building BEFORE there was an “active shooter” announcement over the PA system.
A new dating app was released last week – and it was created by a company in Cleveland.
The app is called “DateFit” and it matches up people who are into staying fit and exercising. Similar to the other dating apps, you swipe one direction to like someone, swipe the other way to reject them...but this app lets you “super like” someone.
The creators say that sometimes approaching someone at the gym can be tough...their app makes it easier.
** note ** while there may be 9,000 people currently using the app, the odds are pretty good that not many of them are in Cleveland, so pickings may be pretty slim until this thing catches on. It's only been out a couple weeks.
