How old do you look? Microsoft Knows
03 May 15
Microsoft recently launched a service that guesses your age and gender based on a photo which you supply. The Phonefinder team have had some photos come really close to their actual age (some have been far off!), however 100% of the time the Microsoft engine guesses gender perfectly. This may seem like a bit of a gimmick, and it is, however Microsoft believe that their path towards accurate f...



Take a digital detox
30 Apr 15
People are becoming addicted to their phones and in the process they are diluting meaningful relationships.

Top new app for your phone - DeeMe
26 Apr 15
This is a new instant messaging app that to be very honest, is pretty cool. It combines photos, video and text. Simply take a photo or video and add text (this is the cool bit) – the text comes in various typography styles and can be accompanied by various graphics. While DeeMe may not replace WhatsApp just yet (or ever) it certainly adds a level of fun to your chats on your smart phone.Check...



Phonefinder Mobi – Just In Time
25 Apr 15
It’s been nearly a week since Google introduced their new algorithm which basically rendered non mobi-friendly websites buried on the second or third page of a mobile Google query. In otherwords, websites which do not render well on a mobile phone will likely not appear on a Google search result.The change will affect millions of websites worldwide, but not Phonefinder, South Africa’s mobile marke...



The Apple Watch is here

Now the same may be true for the watch, how m...

Twitter SMS from MTN
23 Apr 15
MTN recently launched a free, and somewhat strange service called Twitter to SMS. The service allows MTN users to receive free SMS Twitter notifications from people they follow.

Samsung Galaxy S6 – it’s Got the Edge
12 Apr 15
Samsung’s latest flagship phone has just been released into South Africa, and it has a distinct difference to the competition – it has a curved edge.

Play the Phil on April Fools’ Day
31 Mar 15
April Fools’ Day is just simply brilliant. It’s a day where pranksters can openly get away with pranking unsuspecting victims (to be fair it is April Fools’ Day so there is no excuse to be an "unsuspecting victim”). The day is sometimes called All Fools’ Day but it always falls on 1 April. The origin of the day differs slightly depending on your source of information, however the common belie...
