iCloud a name many still don’t know how to use effectively since it debuted in 2011 in Apple’s Developers conference. Since its my first posts since i stopped I’ve decided to make things easy on many out there giving a really simple explaination on iCloud. iCloud is not an app or service by its own but rather an application suite its main use is to sync all of your iOS devices and Mac ( Photos, Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Reminders, Safari, Notes, Keychain ( saved Passwords) ) wirelessly though apple servers. For example No matter where you add a new Note you will find it on all of your iOS & Mac which have the same iCloud account which is basically your apple account.
Now how to setup iCloud on your devices, first if you own a Mac go to System Preferences, iCloud and insert your account and simply check the things you wanna sync through iCloud.
Now go to you iOS device (iPhone, iPad) into settings, iCloud and again do the same thing toggle the switch of the application data you wanna sync though all your apple devices.
Keep in mind that for each iCloud account you only get 5 GB on sync data no matter how many apple devices you own its 5GB if you need more storage especially for your photos i would recommend you upgrade.
Have you ever thought of time traveling, going back in time or jumping into the future ?
Check out this funny video explaining why time traveling is so frustrating.
If you had the chance to travel in time which decade would like to go to ???
For me I would like to go back to the 90’s
How do you usually pay your mobile bills & Network’s provider subscribtions ?
Do you waste your time going through different websites just to find a certain product & compare each one ?
Do you own a small business & couldn’t find an online payment method suitable for your customers ?
Im glad to announce that a new era for mobile payment has arrived. A new way to get away from all the annoyance mentioned above. We live in a mobile world where more than 35% of our time (according to some study) is spent using our mobiles & PCs and one of the most annoying things to do is sell & buy stuff online mainly because most of the local services don’t provide online payment through their websites, or if the do some are not user or mobile friendly, well thats all gonna change with TAP.
Last week we had a chance to meet Ali Abu-Alhasan One of the master minds behind Tap, to get a preview of this new service that I believe gonna be a big hit in Kuwait. Aziz & I burned Ali with our questions and concerns & he answered all our question professionally & honesty. We are really proud of those awesome Kuwaiti developers behind Tap.
Tap is a web app that enables you to buy, pay your bills and sell your products/services online without the need to go to the official website of the seller. Whats really interesting about Tap is the ability to create your business/personal profile and start selling your products within minutes without the need to worry about security, all small businesses gonna benefit from this service and you the cunsumer are the beneficiary, paying your bills, subscriptions, buying stuff and browsing through various products while enjoying your coffee or being in your comfort zone.
Check the demo above and be amazed.
Tap is basically a web app which is much better in my personal opinion than a mobile app, you just log into it from you browser no matter what mobile you are using (iphone, Android, Blackberry) and thats the main advantage of a web app, just open your browser and you are browsing through an app-like interface. Tap will official launch on May 6th but the site is live now for you to preview.
For more information on Tap, visit gotapnow.com or visit the following social media channels:
I wont be exaggerating if i say that the most asked question by anyone I’ve met since I got the Blackberry Z10 is whether it has Instagram or not, and I would like to confirm that the official Instagram app is coming to BB10 but I found a simple solution for those who cant live without Instagram and cant wait for the official app.

I know this solution might sound so simple to some of you but I know many do not know that this option exists, of course you may Like, Comment & view your friends profiles but you can not upload any pics into your account. Its a temporary solution till the official Instagram app finds its way to Blackberry World app store.
Finally I have to mention that the only app available in Blackberry World app store to view Instagram photos is called FlipStagram but it only shows your photo feed as a grid and I personally didnt like it much.
تناقلت بعض المواقع خبر أن البلاك بيري ١٠ لا يحتاج إلى خدمه بلاك بيري من شركه الاتصالات و طبعاً المعلومة جداً خاطئة لان خدمه البلاك بيري مسنجر لن تعمل فقط المتصفح و تويتر سوف يعملون بدون الخدمه.
Some website have been posting wrong info since the early morning about BB10 & the new Z10 from Blackberry. Those websites have mentioned that you don’t need a Blackberry subscription from your mobile provider to use the new Z10 or any BB10 of course that info is so wrong, you can never use BBM (I have tested it out myself although I know it wont work) the only thing you may use is the Browser, Twitter and some apps but BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) won’t work without a subscription. If you are interested in getting the new Z10 or any BB10 upcoming devices you should get a blackberry subscription with it
Mada have offered us an ISDN service to test and make use of their portable landline included in their package.We’ve received it since Ramadan and it might seem late to publish a review now but the past period was a torture testing period for their service. I wanted to make sure that internet service would be reliable in most residential areas in Kuwait. Since Mada is a wireless internet provider internet speed may vary according to the area, although they have their own coverage area table i just wanted to run my own tests. You may check it on their website Here coz the table down below represents my own testing results.
Mada ISDN service comes with a portable landline that could be so appropriate for small businesses, of course the landline works fine for receiving and making calls so basically nothing to test other than call quality and as i mentioned before its fine. Now for the their internet service, one issue that may be annoying to some users that the router has to be near a window to get the best signal available in your area. Basically you have to run a speed test next to each window in your house to know exactly the best place for the router. Some times the best place for the router is not the best place for you but that is something you have to bare with especially when using a wireless internet provider. Due to my personal horrible experience with Fasttelco & QualityNet i began to favour wireless net providers (Zain,Viva & Mada) although it might not be as stable in connection speed but at least they have a qualified technical staff for support rather than Fasttelco who always claim that your house wiring is the problem or coz you use a Mac not windows, i could go on and on talking about how horrible their service is and their support. Dont get my wrong that im bashing them now coz of Mada but i couldnt help remembering their stupidity anyway back to our topic. Below you will find a table i gathered with the help of my friends testing the internet speed in various areas and the speed mentioned in the table is the average speed taken mostly 2 to 3 times a day, the main purpose of this table is just to get an idea on the connection speed. Since its a wireless provider speeds may vary also your house location versus their tower would have a huge effect of the speed you might experience so take it with a grain of salt dont totally rely on it coz each location in the same residential area may experience different speed.
Finally i would like to thank Mada for the ISDN service & of course my friends who helped alot in the making of this test (Thanks Guys 🙂 )
