The simplest Couch-to-5K app/podcast/anything

I'd like to start running (again). First thing tomorrow morning. Can you recommend a simple C25K app or podcast or something that I would just load on my (Android) smartphone and press "Start" tomorrow morning? I don't want to use my own music, because everything I have is too slow. Thanks in advance.

Video Presentation App With Automatic Pauses

Is there an iOS app that lets you build pauses into a video's playback at specific points? Here's my dream scenario: a video begins playing on the iPad until it hits the first pause point, like at 0:07. The video stays paused there until the user next taps the screen, at which point it plays until the next pause point, and waits there. Is there anything out there like that?

Any recovery options for data of deleted iPhone app?

I accidentally deleted an iPhone app (Voice Recorder). Associated with the app were audio files that I didn't have anywhere else, some of which I'd be pretty bummed to lose. There are no phone backups. Is it possible that these files still exist on my phone, and with the right tools, one could recover them? [more inside]

Mobile app design for beginners

Are there any basic online tips for how to approach mobile app design (for print designers who have a formal training)? Resources for how to design for different screen sizes (there are so many of them), latest trends in UI/UX, and most helpful critique/help forums for beginners would be a great help.

Grocery list apps, late 2015 edition

I need a grocery app that my husband and I can both add to/sync lists for iOS (web interface nice but not mandatory). We've been using Buy Me a Pie, but it's gotten glitchy for us and won't let me add him to lists. I've seen this post, and will check out the other recs, but it's a year old, which is forever in app development time. Possible complication: spouse beta tests new iOS versions on his phone for work reasons.

Tools for input and reporting? Especially for lesson observation?

At work, we're creating a digital classroom observation tool. There will be short-answer questions resulting in a report. Google Forms and Survey Monkey aren't getting us there. Do you know other general purpose platforms or specific lesson observation tools I should consider? I'm interested in complete tools, or neat features to include if we end up custom-developing our own. [more inside]

Looking for iOS music apps with specific hard-to-find features

I'm looking for an iOS music app that has one or more specific features and my searching hasn't turned anything up.. it could be that these things aren't technically possible. I'll accept that as an answer. But what I would like is the ability to see the date last played for each song and be able to view and/or edit the iTunes Comments field. I would also like to be able to edit the stars rating AND view the lyrics (the official music app doesn't let you do both).

Voice-activate voice memo app for iOS?

I'm using my iPod's built in voice memo tool. It's ok, but I'd like one that is entirely voice activated. That is, I don't want to have to control start, stop and other features by touching the screen. Is there one that will respond to simple voice commands? If not, how about for Android OS?

I need an app launcher, for a single app, not the popular kind.

I make Windows videogames, and my latest engine doesn't let you select screen resolutions. I could change it so it does, but I'd rather make a small program that first lets you choose resolution (and set fullscreen and such), then launches the game app. But then wait (I said in my head), hasn't someone already created this launcher tool? Please help me out. Have they? [more inside]

Minimalist iOS calorie counter

There are one million calorie counters in the App Store, and I've tried all of them, and none of them rise above "arguably adequate." Assuming that I've already tested all the big players—I've literally downloaded every app on the first page of search results—is there a hidden gem out there with an uncluttered interface and a singular focus on just recording calories consumed?

Looking for an IOS app to shift the pitch of my music in real time

I'm looking for an IOS app that will let me play a song from my music library at a different (chosen) pitch, on the fly, without impacting song length. I know IOS audio editors can do this but I was hoping for something that didn't require loading, editing and saving each song before listening. Any ideas? (Case you were wondering, I'm trying to re-hear my music collection, and shifting pitch is one way to do it.)

How to turn off Google Photos

I don't think there's any way to uninstall the Google Photo bloatware on my unrooted Android phone, which is super-annoying. I've turned off "upload to Google+" but am angsty that one day, after an update or whatever, it might re-default to upload. I don't want Google saving copies of my stuff, and I am not reassured by their help materials, which talk about me "not seeing" the images anymore if I delete them. That's not the same as Google not having them, which is what I'm trying to avoid. Without rooting my phone, is there a way I can delete the app, or stop it from storing my stuff? [more inside]

Mac to-do app in Calendar form

I cannot seem to find a good app that will let me: 1) have recurring tasks 2) allow me to check them off as done (like disappear or strike or some other indicator) 3) presented in calendar form (not a "reminders" list). I don't ask for much. I have checked out many many free apps, none of which accomplish what I want. I'm sure this gem is a paid app and I will gladly fork over based on a suggestion, knowing my criteria. I have yet to find one that has all three of these requirements spelled out. Thanks!

Looking for recommendations for a design inspiration app

I'm hunting for an app (ideally on iPad) that offers you a curated, regularly-updated feed of images of great design, for a daily dose of inspiration. The content can be drawn from pretty much any source: advertising, photography, web design, home decor, whatever. DesignScene used to do a pretty good job of this a few years back, but unfortunately got discontinued. Any ideas, guys?
