Geek of the Week: STOPit

There's a new anti-bullying app that let's students anonymously report bullies. Its called STOPit.

Schools or districts who opt to participate in the program are assigned a local code so administrators don't have to weed through reports from across the country to find ones that apply locally.

Students with the app are able to communicate with faculty and staff totally anonymously to report bullying, or other problems around the school, or to ask for help and advice.


STOPit is a free app for iphone and android. Talk to your school district or the principal to recommend implementing it at your kids' school. Lakewood High School rolled it out earlier this month and have already had several tips.

Geek of the Week: Weather Apps

This is the time of year where the weather can change from minute to minute. Today, almost every app on the market does the same thing, you get the forecast, the radar, and the hour-by-hour, for any given zip code. For the layperson, the difference is in the presentation and the navigation.

Everyone has a favorite and they swear by it...but the truth is, they're all basically the same.

Some of the popular free apps are AccuWeather, The Weather Channel, Weather Bug, and Weather Underground. Then there's the one you've probably seen screenshots from on social media...the one that hurls insults at you, based on the [bleeping] weather. That app is called What the Forecast.

It's also worth noting that all the local TV stations have their own app with forecasts...the added advantage here is they come with local news and sports stories.

When you want to be informed about the weather, get an app. Any app.


Links to popular weather apps:

Yahoo! Weather












The Weather Channel








Weather Bug




Weather Underground




What the Forecast




Cleveland TV

**Note:  most of the TV station have stand alone weather apps.  Listed below are their main app that includes news, sports and weather.
