…Ben the Bodyguard walks the streets of the web?

Ben The Bodyguard

Ben the Bodyguard is a new app being developed for iOS that will protect passwords, photos, contacts, and anything else that you want to keep away from the prying eyes of anyone else.

What’s really neat about Ben though is his website, which features a really innovative navigation method to ‘walk’ you through the features.

Make sure to check it out before the release in January, though I’d imagine they’ll replace it with something equally amazing at that time as well.

…It’s Things Thursday: Birdhouse?

Birdhouse

Birdhouse is a Twitter incubator where tweets can be saved and edited over and over until each of the 140 characters is crafted to perfection.

It’s also an iPhone app with one of the best demo videos ever made, so be sure to check it out:

…iTunes makes you the world’s best DJ?

iTunes DJ

The iTunes 8.1 update includes a new feature that I think has gone unjustly unnoticed: The new iTunes DJ. Now, in addition to acting as the world’s cheapest Sonos, the iPhone and iTunes combo can help turn you into the world’s best DJ.

The iTunes DJ playlist builder, which is designed to keep the music flowing at any party, allows you to collaboratively build a playlist with any of your friends that have an iPhone and the Remote app installed. With the app, they can log into the iTunes DJ playlist builder, view your library, suggest songs that should be added to the playlist, vote on upcoming songs, and generally help match the music to the mood of a party.

It’s easy to set up, with just a few check boxes and a welcome screen to enable, and once you’re up and running, the music you play will always be what a majority of the party-goers want to hear. (Hopefully…)

How cool is that?

…The Mac Bundle Box sells apps for charity?

Mac Bundle Box

There’s something about Macs that just makes the app developers want to bundle, and the latest offering is the Mac Bundle Box (their fourth!), a collection of thirteen apps worth more than $333 that is selling for just $49.

In addition to the great deal they’re offering buyers, they’re also offering to do some good too, with 5% of each sale is going to Charity:Water, an organization that’s helping to build wells for the more than 1.1 billion people who don’t have safe drinking water.

The included applications are Relationship, Code Collector, DrawIt, Espionage, Cover Stream, DEVONnote, QuickScale, Project Calculator, Transcriva, Magnet, Involer, Stuf and Blog Assist, so if you’ve been looking to pick up any one of those, then perhaps now’s the time to pick up all of them and do some good while you’re at it.
