Upcoming Listener Special!

Hey Apptasticans! (Yup, I'm going with that) We're doing a special episode in a few weeks where we'd like to feature YOU! Or your apps, at least. We'd like you to send in submissions of apps you'd like us to review, whether they're apps you love, apps you hate, or apps you just haven't bothered to try yet. Better yet, send us a recording of you telling us about an app and why you would recommend it. Just send us your suggestions by e-mail at before March 15, 2013 and we'll put them together for the following week's episode.

Quick Announcement from the Apptastic Reviewers

This week's episode is just a quick update to keep everyone in the loop about what's been happening and will be happening within the Apptastic crew. If you'd like to show your support for Amy and her family, you can join the TechJives network in sending Flowers for Nique. Thank you for your patience during these difficult times!  New episodes will be returning starting next week, and as always you can contact us with feedback, show ideas or thoughts for Amy at

No new episode this week!

We apologize, but you're going to have to wait an extra week for the next episode of Apptastic due to those pesky unforeseen circumstances. In the meantime, why don't you check out some of the other TechJives shows? I recommend Developology and On Vox, especially! :) See you next week for Apptastic #43!
