Bully Buster USA And Iconosys Team Up For The Release Of Word Bully 3.0 For Android

“Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me” pardon my language but that’s the biggest crock of shit we learned in school. Sure they don’t physically hurt you but they can drive the bullying victim to tears, withdraw and even suicide. Now bully’s have a new weapon, the mobile phone. If you don’t think this is happening at your son or daughter, or even your school your dead wrong.

Nowadays instead of writing on the bathroom wall “For a good time call Sally 555-1212” cyber bully’s obtain the victim’s cell phone number and text and taunt them. They are also notorious for spreading cell phone numbers around so whole groups can cyber bully the same victim.

How serious is cyber-bullying? It’s been covered here on thedroidguy.com, newspapers nationwide from the Baltimore Sun to the LA Times and on all of the network morning shows. Cyber Bullying is so serious that Jillian Naber a Los Gatos teenager killed herself after falling the victim to cyber-bullying.

A topless photo of Naber had surfaced at her school and had been spread around the community virally.

Iconosys, a major white label app developer in Laguna Niguel California has teamed up with and Bully Buster USA has teamed up for the 3rd release of Word Bully. The new release is Word Bully 3.0.

If You Take Medicine You Need This Android App: Digital Pillbox

A new app from our friends at Iconosys (who make thedroidguy app) has hit the Android Market. This app solves one of America’s biggest health problems.

The biggest illness is the fact that people do not take their medicines as they are directed and/or as their health requires.”  According to Dr. Silvio Margiles, a retired pediatrician and former chairman for the Argentina Medical Board.

That’s where DigitalPillBox comes in.  DigitalPillBox is like a pill box reminder app on steroids. It features a much more appealing graphical interface than other pill box reminder apps. It also has a library of images of the most common pills to remind people exactly what medicines they are supposed to be taking visually and with text. If the pill takers medicine isn’t in the library they can use their phones camera to take a picture of the exact medicine they are supposed to be taking. If you take three pills at the same time you can take a picture of all three together.

Features like that are great for people with chronic illness or take medicine at a regular basis. The picture feature is especially helpful when the person taking the medication is with others. Perhaps they aren’t feeling well and need help on a certain day, a friend or relative would be able to help figure out what medicine they are supposed to be taking by simply looking at the picture.

Keep Track Of Your Driving Speed With My Max Speed 2.0 For Android


Iconosys has announced the release of My Max Speed 2.0 to the Android Market. My Max Speed keeps track of the speed that you’re traveling at and makes a database notation every 5 seconds.

Why would you need this kind of information:

– To monitor how fast you actually drove on a trip
– To monitor how fast you actually drove on the way to work and then recalculating your commute
– To makes sure you stay within the legal limit
– To know if your new driver children are speeding

There are countless reasons that you could use information like this. My Max Speed 2.0 enters all this information into a spreadsheet that you can download as an excel file.  Not only that but within the spreadsheet, on an Android phone, you can tap the speed and it will show you on a map where you were traveling at.

Wayne Irving CEO of Iconosys and father of three teenage children said:”There are hundreds of reasons to run My Max Speed on your smart phone. We expect many will help protect drivers’ rights while others will make the roads safer. For example, our children are more apt to drive slower/safer if they know there is a chance that I will be checking their speed reports,”

All I Want From Santa App Keeps Track Of Your Childrens List And Letters To Santa

Back in the olden days before computers and the internet kids used to sit down with a pen and paper and write letters to Santa detailing what they wanted for Christmas. Those letters were either sent to the north pole, or dropped in Santa mailboxes.

In those days, if your kid was smart, like Wayne Irving II’s kids were, (co-creator of All I Want From Santa), then they sealed that letter up right away leaving parents wondering what they wanted. If your kids believed in Santa Claus than they probably didn’t want to tell their parents what they told Santa as to not spoil the surprise.

Well it’s 2011 and fulfilling your kids wish list just got easier with the help of the All I Want From Santa app.  This feature packed app keeps track of what’s on your kids Christmas list, what they’ve sent to Santa and now it even prioritizes those Christmas wants.
