A huge congratulations to all those receiving their A level results today. We hope you’ve got the grades you were anticipating and all that hard work has paid off.

It’s time to get excited about coming to University, especially to those attending Teesside. You will be the first freshers to experience skignz, the new exciting virtual mapping device to make finding your way around campus a whole lot easier.

Skignz doesn’t stop there… You’ll find skignz on nights out, letting you know what’s going on in the Students Union or updating you on the latest drinks promotions.

Not done yet… Skignz can also be used socially with your mates. Picture this: You’ve just met all your new friends in halls or student accommodation, your ready to smash your first big night out together, drinks starts flowing, you roll up to the Students Union for pre drinks, your at the bar, turn around after paying for your drinks and your friends are gone… Panic!!!

Don’t... With skignz you can place virtual signs above your friends heads. This allows you to use your phone to scan the crowd to find your friends there and then, as simple as that.

It’s no good constantly being worried about your kids!

It’s no good constantly being worried about your kids!

Kids in their younger years we all know it is a full time job to constantly watch them to make sure they are okay!
Then comes the time when they start to grow up and want to do their own thing, but you still constantly worry about them and cant always watch them like you used to.

This can be stressful for parents and what you need is to know that you can be stress free from worrying when your kids are not in your sight!

I know how this is as I have been in this situation with my parents. I live at home and one day when I got asked to go do the food shop by my Mum I went into town and in Iceland I never have signal on my phone to get calls or texts through.
When I arrive home from the food shop my Mum told me she was on the verge of calling the police thinking something had happened to me due to me not answering my phone, when I had just been to town to do the food shop for her bearing in mind I live about 10 minutes from the town, and I am 21 years old!

Imagine when your child moves away to University that’s even worse, not being able to see them all the time, or knowing what there up to when out partying! Bet the first thing you think is HELP!

But not to worry because there is a new way that you can make sure your kids are just fine. You don’t have to think about doing what parents do on sun, sea and suspicious parents, being sneaky then getting caught out!

New technology has now been developed, a new way for you to keep track of who you want. skignz lets you place a sign above someone’s head so that you can see where they are when you want. You can also become friends with someone and then wherever they are just follow them around seeing what they are up to.

This is new and exciting for both parents and your children to get involved in. It is trendy for everyone and can be really helpful for when your kids do not answer their mobiles! (If only my mum had this) All you have to do is download skignz to your mobile, tablet or portable device and then away you go.

It is fun, less stressful, free and you have less chance of getting caught out!
Has this helped you? Let us know!

Ever fretted about your partner?

Ever fretted about your partner?

Well there might just be a sneaky little answer to this problem!
We all know there is many people out there that love to spy on someone to see what there up to, and there is no way to find out everything they do unless you follow them in person!

Social media such as Facebook and Twitter have been patented as the best ways to know what someone is up to most of the time, just by taking a look at their profiles to see that status update or what they may be tagged in!

The Mail Online states that nearly 90% of jilted lovers are stalking their ex’s on social media sites. This is becoming more common as it is now easier to access information and more people are participating in it.

Imagine your wedding day coming up and you think that your partner might be stalking their ex; or even worse up to no good this would be a huge concern you would have to find out what there up to!

Want a sneaky way? Lets be realistic hiring a detective just costs too much.

The technology is now available to let you place a actual sign above someone’s head to see their whereabouts whenever and wherever they are. It has been that advanced and developed that you can now take advantage of this up to date technology that lets you find out what your partner is up to without the risk of getting caught!

Don’t let your relationship or wedding day be ruined by worrying and thinking nothing good. Check out what the new technology is all about; use it and help yourself out.

This can be a new way for you to keep track of your partner if needed and could even result in less divorce happening often and more happy marriages and relationships being saved!

Let us know if skignz has helped you in answering your concerns!

Heads up to the Brownies ;)

Heads up to the Brownies ;)

Now I’m not sure if this is just a girl thing or I am one of a minority but reading confusing road signs is not my strong point. I simply do not understand why I am in the northeast but a road sign says A1 north or A1 south as regardless of the direction I choose I’m still in the northeast hence the north. No south in there what so ever so why would I head south?! I know this sounds a bit crazy but surely I’m not the only one that finds these signs baffling. I’m not by any means saying I cannot read road signs as I can navigate around normal signs (stating destination) with ease but these that have the same road with two compass readings next to them throw me especially if its my first time in that location.

Following a discussion on this topic with my peers all the girls agreed that these signs were confusing and can relate to my story on numerous occasions. However one girl found it crazy that we didn’t get it. This girl had been a brownie as a child but what difference did this make? Answer. All the difference. She’d been taught from a young age how to read maps and basic survival tips. Something I’d only ever talked about with my old gramps! She knew how to co-ordinate and navigate using a standard map. I guess my reliance on Google maps hasn’t quite prepped me for map reading =S.

If you have had this experience then share it with us!
