Numerous is a pretty cool iOS App built on a unique premise, to let you stay updated with the important events in your life through numbers. It can keep track of numbers, like: temperature, days until a friend’s or a family member’s birthday, stock quotes, time until your favorite movie comes out to the theaters etc. You can either pick a set of numbers from the suggested popular categories to follow, or create an event of your own to keep track of. What’s more, you can even share your numbers with others on social networks like Facebook, Twitter etc. Sounds pretty interesting, doesn’t it? Let’s know a little bit more about it, past the break!
Numbers have always been important, but are even more so in today’s world. For example, revenue numbers of a corporation determine its market value, user figures of web services are a measure of their popularity etc. During the course of our day to day activities, we have to keep track of a lot of figures. Birthdays of friends and family members, gas prices, stock quotes, likes and shares on our posts, re-tweets on our tweets, the list goes on. That’s a whole lot of digits to keep track of, don’t you think?
Today, I’m reviewing an app that might just be what you need to keep track of the numerous important numbers in your life. Say hola to, well, Numerous.
Numerous: Signing Up and Choosing a User Name
Numerous is quite an amazing app. It lets you keep track of a handful number of important numbers, which are constantly updated without any need of manual refreshes. The app essentially requires you to log-in with either a Facebook or Twitter account. Once you do that, you are required to choose a username. Check out the combo screenshot below:
Numerous: Selecting a category and Adding numbers to follow
Once you choose a username and are logged into your account, you can choose from a variety of categories like Editor’s picks, Popular, Temperature, Events etc. Tapping a category lets you see the numbers that it consists of as small squares. To select the numbers you want to keep track of, just tap the relevant squares, and tap Follow on the top right corner to add them to your list. Check out the following combo screenshot:
Removing a number category is also easy. Just tap and hold on any number until a small cross appears on all the number squares. Simply tap the cross on the number that you no longer want to keep track of, and it’s gone. Quite simple, isn’t it?
