WeQ4U – free app feeds you through call centers and switchboards with no pain [Freeware]

WeQ4U is a free iPhone and Android app which does all the hard work of queuing up for business and government 08 numbers in the UK, so you can get on with other things. The app not only saves you time hanging around on long boring switchboard call queues, but it also saves money, because the app hangs up but stays in the queue until a customer service agent arrives on the other end.

Helmut – turn your phone into a cool instant film scanner [Freeware]

There are many ways to scan old slides and film stock to convert to digital, but most of these involve some sort of expensive or cumbersome equipment.

Tawkon – track your phone radiation and stay safe [Freeware]

We’ve all become very reliant on mobile phones, simply because they’re an awesome invention. But even so it is probably prudent to minimize extensive exposure to the radiation from the handsets during a long call. And before you trot out the old nonsense about non-ionizing radiation being completely safe, just remember that microwave ovens also use non-ionizing radiation, which most definitely is not safe unless properly shielded.

Twilight helps you sleep better by adjusting your melatonin levels [Freeware]

Buycott – finally there’s a guilt free way to shop [Freeware]

It’s hard to remain a ‘concerned’ citizen nowadays because you can never tell whether a product you’re buying comes from a company whose ethics are questionable or worse. There are so many different degrees of ownership in the major corporates, that it’s almost impossible to trace who owns what when it comes to consumer products on the shelves.

How to Double Your PC Productivity With Just 65 MB of Free Software [Freeware]

Like many readers of the Red Ferret, I spend much of my working day in front of a computer, and like others I have an inbox flooded with emails arriving every minute, in addition to client and business partner phone calls…and in between all of this I need to get work done.
