Android Candy: Free, Family, Fun—Fantastic
I've mentioned geocaching before, but if you've never taken the time to go out and do it, you're really missing out. Whether you're dragging your family through two feet of snow in the middle of the woods (yeah, I did that last year, I'm still not sure they've forgiven me) or following your GPS around a parking lot looking for a tiny micro-cache, geocaching is fun. You need only a few things to go geocaching:
A sense of adventure.
Friends or family (not required, but more fun).
A sharp mind (there often are brain puzzles involved).
A GPS or smartphone app to guide you.
That's where c:geo comes in. There are several geocaching apps for Android, and they vary in price from free to very not free. The c:geo app is one of the free ones, and it also happens to be one of the best. It will show you clues, help you find local geocaches and guide you on a map to the GPS location you need. Whether you're a hard-core geocacher or just want to go out for a little fun with the family, c:geo is a great tool for your Android device that will make geocaching easier and more enjoyable. You can find it in the Google Play Store.
Because it's such an incredible application, and because it relates to our three favorite F words (Free, Family, Fun), c:geo gets our Editors' Choice award this month. Download it now, and get out there and find stuff: http://www.cgeo.org.

Pick up any e-commerce web or mobile app today, and you’ll be holding a mashup of interconnected applications and services from a variety of different providers. For instance, when you connect to Amazon’s e-commerce app, cookies, tags and pixels that are monitored by solutions like Exact Target, BazaarVoice, Bing, Shopzilla, Liveramp and Google Tag Manager track every action you take. You’re presented with special offers and coupons based on your viewing and buying patterns. If you find something you want for your birthday, a third party manages your wish list, which you can share through multiple social- media outlets or email to a friend. When you select something to buy, you find yourself presented with similar items as kind suggestions. And when you finally check out, you’re offered the ability to pay with promo codes, gifts cards, PayPal or a variety of credit cards.Get the Guide
