Blooming buds, chirping birds and sweet, sweet sunshine: Canadians are already eagerly watching for the first signs of spring, which officially begins Wednesday. In honour of the start of patio and BBQ season, we’re sharing some of our favourite Android apps for spring entertaining from the Google PLAY store.
Barbequing done right
A warm evening just begs for dinner to be thrown on the grill. The iGrill helps you cook burgers and steaks to perfection. This thermometer, which costs $80, communicates via Bluetooth with a free app from the Google PLAY store (it’s also available for iOS), to help you track cooking times and even serves up recipes.
Bored with burgers? Cooking apps such as Big Oven (free), which features more than 250,000 recipes, Epicurious (free), which boasts more than 28,000 meal ideas, and celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s 20-minute meals app ($3.80) will help spice up your menus to take advantage of all that fresh produce.
Entertaining made easy
If you’re serving dinner for a group, you can manage your party prep and planning with Pepperplate (free). This app lets users share recipes, create menus and shopping lists and run multiple cooking timers to make sure that pot on the stove doesn’t boil over while you’re mixing mojitos.
A night in the backyard or balcony also calls for a great soundtrack. Music-streaming concierge Songza (free) lets you choose playlists based on activity or mood, while the subscription-based Rdio (free) offers more than 18 million songs on demand.
Shoot like a pro
In this “Pictures or it didn’t happen” society, it doesn’t hurt to upgrade your phone’s editing software to make sure your home-cooked meals, hand-picked bouquets and perfect pedicures look their best on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and beyond. Adobe PhotoShop Touch ($3.99) brings Adobe’s popular photo-editing features, including layers, filters, tone and colour adjustment to your phone.
And if you’re looking for a new phone or tablet to go with your fresh spring wardrobe, you can get a $35 voucher – only available in Canada through Rogers – to spend on great apps in the Google PLAY store when you activate a Samsung Galaxy S III, Note 2 or another eligible Samsung Galaxy device with a two or three year plan before April 1.

Do you have any to add?
- Speed: We put a lot of emphasis on the ever-increasing speed of our networks this year. Have you tried the wild-and-crazy Rogers Speed Experience yet? Santa did! From our LTE network, to increasing our internet speeds to our full range of devices, speed was definitely on everyone’s lips in 2012.
- Innovation: We’ve always been an innovative company. Our Rogers Innovation Reports highlight our commitment to innovation through a series of surveys highlighting mobile and Internet usage by Canadians. Did you check out our latest? It highlights 2012 trends and your tech predictions for the years ahead. If all your holiday sugar and eggnog has made you data hungry, you can check out all our Rogers Innovation Reports on Slideshare.
- LTE: Innovation and speed came together for us in a big way in 2012 as we built upon our success as the first Canadian wireless company to launch an LTE network, in Ottawa, in 2011, followed by Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. 2012 brought the opening of additional markets from coast to coast, including cities like Victoria, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Kingston, Quebec City, Moncton and St. John’s.
- Rogers One Number: February blues? Not at Rogers! It was the month we launched Rogers One Number. “RON” as the service is known to its friends, lets you talk, text and send picture messages, and video chat with other Rogers One Number users, all from your computer using your existing phone number. By using Rogers One Number, all calls to Canadian numbers, video chats with other Rogers One Number users and outgoing wireless text messages are free. Did you catch our contest winners’ Rogers One Number chat with Canada’s very own Hedley?
- Mobile Payments and Rogers suretap: We teamed up with CIBC to bring mobile payment to Rogers customers earlier this year. Canadian athlete extraordinaire Simon Whitfield was on hand to make Rogers’ first mobile payment. To learn more about how mobile payments and Rogers suretap work, check out our Rogers suretap video on YouTube.
- Next is Now … More than Ever: this 2nd in our ongoing video series looks at statistics that speak to how much Canadians value the Internet, smart appliances, the development of the dual-screen experience with TVs and tablets, smartphone usage, digital wallets, and the impact the Internet is having on health, government, education, and shopping. Have you checked it out yet?
- Windows 8: How proud were we to be chosen by Microsoft as the preferred Canadian wireless partner for the launch of the highly anticipated Windows 8! We’re bringing the largest selection of Windows 8 devices to the Canadian market, releasing the Nokia 920 back in October. For all the latest details on our Windows 8 offering, visit rogers.com/windows8.
- iPhone 5: what would a Rogers year be without an iPhone launch? It sends our sales and marketing teams, our call centres and our clients into an excited frenzy every time. The iPhone 5 brought us a slimmer device with an improved camera and loads of other rich features. Which iPhone 5 feature is your favourite?
- BlackBerry 10: Not to be outdone, the upcoming BlackBerry 10 is causing quite a stir. So much so that we’re already taking orders for it! Head over to rogers.com to reserve yours today.
- Exclusive devices: Whether it’s the Windows Phone 8X by HTC (8 GB), Nokia Lumia 920, the Samsung ATIV Smart PC and ATIV S Smartphone or the LG Optimus G 2600, 2012 brought Rogers customers access to an exciting range of exclusive smartphones, tablets and apps. Which is your current fave?
- Rogers Smart Home Monitoring: Remember the Jetsons? How cool is it that the life George, Jane, Judy and Elroy lived is (almost) here? Ok so maybe we don’t all have our own personal Rosey-the-robot-maid, and we’re not heading off to work in flying cars, but George and Jane would definitely feel at home with Rogers Smart Home Monitoring. From controlling sensors, cameras, thermostats, lights and small appliances remotely through your computer or smartphone, Rogers gives you a taste of the world Hanna Barbara could only imagine when they created the Jetson universe 50 years ago.
- Rogers Anyplace TV: Sports on your tablet. What more could a die-hard fan want? Sure, from Vancouver to Toronto to Montreal and everywhere in between we’re mourning our hockey season, but being able to watch the Jays or Raptors or the NBA or Sportsnet on our tablets helps ease the pain. And if sports aren’t your thing, no worries: Rogers Anyplace TV has something for you too. Ring in the New Year with any one of our new releases. Men in Black 3 maybe? Or how about Resident Evil: Retribution? Paranorman? I know! Why not enjoy the perfect merge of sports and Hollywood with Clint Eastwood’s Trouble with the Curve? So many choices! Stop me now or I’ll be recommending movies into 2014!
Wow! What a year! So … have we forgotten anything? Which one of these great innovations changed your life in 2012? Drop by one of our newly revamped concept stores to tell us all about it! (I just had to slip a 13th in there … we’re on the cusp of 2013 after all!)
Happy new year everyone! All the best to you and yours: health and happiness for 2013, from our family to yours.

Some weeks are bigger news weeks than others, and this week was a great one for tech news – in fact, I had a hard time narrowing it down to my top picks this week! However, I finally settled on 4 I think you’ll enjoy – a gift guide for digital cameras, reviews on a top selling tablet (which is also sure to be popular this Christmas), and more info on Windows 8 and mobile security, which both remain hot topics as well.
Digital camera gift guide
Did you know: Christmas is only 37 days away?! As a result, we’re starting to see a lot of holiday gift guides being released, including a great one this week from Engadget. This week they released a gift guide entirely devoted to digital cameras, with emphasis on popular styles including point-and-click, mirrorless, and Digital SLR. Check out their list and start inquiring about what matters most to your shutterbug – since reading this you’re down to only 36 days and 23 ½ hours left for shopping!
Tablet Reviews: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
In our last Rogers Innovation report, we reported that 35% of youth believe tablets will replace textbooks within the next 5 years. We wanted to put that theory to the test so we asked La Lobana and Med Lab Maven to use the Samsung Galaxy tablet for a week and asked them if tablets could replace their textbooks. See how they fared in Lo Lobana’s post here, and Med Lab Maven’s post here.
See Windows 8 devices& read why you should upgrade
Connected Magazine recently put together two great guides for their readers – a hands-on introduction to Windows 8 devices, and another one highlighting the key differences between Windows 7.5 and 8. Start out by getting a crash course on the Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung ATIVS, Windows Phone 8X HTC, and Samsung ATIV smart PC. Once you’ve got a better knowledge of the hardware, take a deeper look into the software by reading up on features like Kid’s Corner, SkyDrive, and of course, mobile wallet.
Mobile payments and security
Speaking of mobile wallet, this week we were fortunate enough to speak with two leaders in the mobile tech industry for a Q&A on security – the Huffington Post’s Dan Tencer, and Gemalto security expert Paul Bradley.
If you’ve ever wanted to know what happens to your personal info when your phone is lost or stolen, how apps are secured to ensure your banking and shopping info is safe, or how to keep track of what data third party vendors have access to, you’ll definitely want to check out our Q&A here.

Inside access. That’s what Jack Harding, from Oh Wow You Wore That has. Inside access to Toronto’s Fashion Week and a demo of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2, now available at Rogers locations. Check out what Jack had to say about fashion week and his first experience with an Android device below:
Tell us about Toronto Fashion Week, what was your favourite moment?
Toronto Fashion Week is always a fantastic opportunity for me. I find that it is such a great place to gather people from various sectors within the industry to all work together for one common goal (and that is to put on a show). You get to see old friends and new, and you get to see not only fantastic style on the attendees, but you get to see new looks come down the runway for the following season. I think though if I had to choose my favorite moment it was the Bustle show. Known for fun shows, this year was unlike any other. With a great Safari theme, and models with a fantastic sense of humor, it was definitely a show not to be missed.
You got to preview a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 smartphone for the week. What was your favourite feature?
Having the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for a week made me realize I did not want to give it back. It didn’t just have one feature that I liked, but it had many features that I LOVED. The camera burst feature which allowed me to take 20 photos at a time over a period of a few seconds was great for runway shots. The note function allowed me to scribble down things fast and it was great at recognizing my hand-writing. It was also really intuitive. With different motion controls and fantastic word recognition, this phone was amazing.
How do you like the Android platform?
I never used to like the Android platform, but after this, I am a total convert. Everything is made to fit the needs of the user, and it is adjustable to whatever you want the phone to do. I like that opposed to other operating systems which pigeon hole you into certain functions and only one set of functionalities.
What did you notice about the Rogers LTE Network?
What I noticed about the Rogers LTE Network was that I have never had an internet connection on a phone so fast in my life. I had my photos instantly being shared with dropbox, and I was tweeting away, and I was using the internet and GPS tracking devices all at the same time, and I never had my phone slow down, never had the internet slow down, and I noticed that it was always super speedy no matter what time of the day it was.
How did the Samsung Note 2 smartphone enhance your experience at Toronto Fashion Week?
The Samsung Galazy Note 2 made Toronto Fashion Week so much easier for me. The device is convenient and gave me access to my email, my texts, my calls, my camera, my social media networks and my drop box. I went from carrying a bag with everything I needed to merely this phone. It took such beautiful images that I couldn’t believe a smartphone could do, and it even allowed me to be able to update my website from the device, making on the spot site updates a breeze. This is truly a techy, a blogger, and a media mavens best friend.
Are you excited to see Psy perform Gangnam Style tonight at the Kool Haus?
I’ve been ranting and raving about being able to see Psy and watch him perform at the Kool Haus. It is going to be such an amazing performance and is looking to be like a stunning night overall. I cannot wait.
Did you visit Toronto Fashion Week? What was your favourite runway show?

Last week, Rogers hosted 15 bloggers to talk about how a tablet, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE could help make their hectic lives a little easier. They chatted about everything from sharing their calendars to whether technology, such as tablets, belongs in the household. Using Storify, a social curating tool, we captured the best of what they had to say. Check it out:

Our LTE one year anniversary contest ended last week and you blew us away with your creative entries about how LTE has transformed your digital lives. We had more than 100 entries detailing how LTE has helped keep your families connected, make your businesses more efficient and helped you be more productive on-the-go. From tech-savvy students to connected grandmothers, your stories really inspired us.
It was a tough decision to pull out the final 8. In fact, it was so tough that we’ve decided to add another prize: a Nokia Lumia 900! Of the 8 finalists below, we will now be doing a random draw for 5 prizes.
We’ll be announcing the final 5 winners on Monday, July 9 to mark the one-year anniversary of LTE in Canada. We’ll be updating this post with the names of the winners at that time.
After much debate and deliberation, here are your top 8 finalists.
I travel a lot between Halifax, Montreal and Toronto and like to keep up with my kids on the road. With the new LTE network and my HTC One X, our video calls are just as good as face-to-face conversations. It’s great to be able to say good night and sing lullabies in real time.
Ever since I switched to LTE I can now have alittle me time. I’m a full time student who’s working, so rarely have any free time. Now with LTE and my tablet I can actually remote into my desktop and play Skyrim through SplashtTop app. It’s unbelievable that it works so well latency is nearly zero, no lag! I’m getting a desktop experience in the palm of my hands. Now when I get a break or two I can squeeze in some me time thanks to LTE. Now if only I can find a tree with a power outlet.
As a photographer I’ve been using cloud storage services to store my photographs, work and portfolios. Before LTE I relied on more traditional methods of storage such as on device local storage, numerous SD cards etc. It was too cumbersome sometimes I’d run out of space or didn’t have all my work. Making the switch to LTE and cloud storage made things far simpler, it just made sense. All my work could be stored to the cloud and could be retrieved almost instantaneously. It just works! With LTE it just became simple to show my work to clients and alike.
I have to say, Rogers bringing LTE to Canada first was one of their best moves in recent years. Jumping on the ball like that really showed their willingness to take risks in a untested market. I no longer have to be embarrassed by never-ending buffering screens or weak signal strength The blazing speeds really help when downloading games/apps/music. I really do love rubbing the fact that I get speeds of up to 35 Mb/s via speed test to my tech savvy friends who barely get 10 Mb/s.
10752 minutes a year! I’ve calculated and this how much time I am saving because of LTE. That’s about 7.4 days so a week and a bit. Before it just to be a dragged to take a pic and send it off or watch netflix (I travel lots so this is a super plus). It sucked having to wait for netflix or youtube videos. I feel like LTE allows me to keep up with my life. I would never go back. What’s great is that now I know for sure that I have an extra week a year for holidays.
I use LTE when we travel to Vancouver from Victoria. We go quite often to take our son to children’s hospital. LTE is extremely beneficial and makes our life easier. I wish I could say it was business or something fancy like that but it’s not. It keeps us connected and keeps the other two kids entertained while waiting for us. Thanks Rogers
I became an uncle last night, went to the hospital straight from work. Didnt get a chance to pick up iPad/book or anything to pass time with from home. So in the boring waiting room with no tv to watch the end of the spain portugal match, i followed it online. Then i downloaded many games from Google Play to kill time, watched some stuff off youtube. When my niece was born took lots of pictures and emailed them to people. LTE kept me from getting bored and kept people who couldnt get to the hospital in the loop
I visit my granny often in Vancouver BC, and visiting her is such a delight, especially since i get to use my Samsung SII LTE! The speeds i receive make using my GPS over network a breeze while navigating in such a big city! I love LTE, i don’t know how i ever lived without it!
UPDATE: (July 9, 2012, 5:05 pm): We’ve completed the draw for the 5 prizes! Here are the names of our winners and prizes:
- May K from Mississauga, ON is the winner of the Nokia Lumia 900

There’s nothing like the Friday before a long weekend. It’s so close you can almost smell the barbecues, see the fireworks, and hear loons on the lake! It’s important to remember why we’re celebrating though – its Canada’s 145th birthday!
Every year on July 1st Canadians gather to celebrate living in this beautiful country. But how skilled are you on our country’s history? Do you know the year we first officially had the Canadian flag? Can you name our first Prime Minister? If not, brush up on Canada’s history with About.com’s handy checklist – it will give you an even deeper appreciation amidst celebrating with friends and loved ones! If you’re confident in your knowledge, test it with Maclean’s interactive survey and determine “How Canadian Are You?”
This Canada Day, Rogers is celebrating the launch of Citytv in Saskatchewan. Teaming up with SCN, the SCN.ca website also offers full episodes of Citytv programming for online viewing. Now viewers in Saskatchewan can access even more hit TV shows, with programming that includes Cityline, America’s Got Talent, Modern Family, and the upcoming The Bachelor Canada. You’ll also want to watch for upcoming Saskatchewan productions such as The Neighbor’s Dog, 15 Minutes of Fame, and The Edge of War. By the fall, Citytv plans to be in eight provinces and reach nine million homes.
This week we’re also celebrating the release of the Samsung Galaxy SIII on our LTE network in Canada! With features such as ‘Smart Stay’ and ‘S Beam’, it’s no wonder Mobile Syrup called it “the best Android phone on the market,” while the Financial Post debated if it would be “an Apple iPhone killer.”
Check out our Redboard post featuring a new video displaying some of the Samsung Galaxy SIII’s coolest features. If you managed to snag one before the holiday weekend, you’ll definitely want to download the Rogers Anyplace TV Live mobile app to stay in touch with all your fave sports from the cottage as well! This weekend the Toronto Blue Jays take on the LA Angels, and you can watch the games LIVE from the new Samsung Galaxy SIII.
The Samsung Galaxy SIII is available in stores or online now.
Have you purchased the new Samsung Galaxy SIII yet? What features are you most excited to try out over the long weekend?
Kelly is a regular contributor to RedBoard
Arriving at Rogers locations today, the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III is the latest LTE smartphone to be added to the Rogers lineup. With intuitive and powerful features that make it easy to share your favourite content, this smartphone is bound to be your new best friend.
Most interesting features? Hands down features like ‘Smart Stay’ are at the top of the list. This feature recognizes eye motion to maintain a bright display so if you’re reading on your device the brightness won’t dim while you’re looking at the screen, so your screen is always optimized for the best viewing experience. There’s also ‘S Beam’ that allows you to share large files such as a 1 GB movie file simply by touching another Galaxy S III device. How awesome is that?
It’s not just what’s under the hood that makes the Samsung Galaxy S III so great, it’s also the hardware. This device has a 4.8” HD Super AMOLED screen capable of displaying 720 p video. Check out this hands-on video with Stephanie, our data girl, showcasing live-streaming of the Toronto Blue Jays on the Rogers Anyplace TV Live mobile app:
The Rogers Anyplace TV Live mobile app is available on Rogers smartphones through iTunes, Google Play and BlackBerry App World. For a monthly subscription of $5 a month, Rogers Anyplace TV Live gives you access to unlimited hours of viewing until October 31st after which, users can stream 5 hours per month, with $1 per each additional hour. Additional live sports content is also available, kids programming like Treehouse and YTV, and news such as CityNews.
The Samsung Galaxy S III is now available at Rogers retail locations. Check Rogers.com for more details.

Next month we will celebrate the one year anniversary of LTE in Canada. In July 2011, Rogers was the first to bring LTE to Canada with the launch of our network in Ottawa. Today, many city launches later, we offer LTE to 12 million Canadians and will cover 60 per cent of the population this year. We introduced even faster LTE speeds as the first to launch LTE devices that work on both the 1700/2100MHz and 2600 spectrum offering typical download speeds of up to 40 Mbps and maximum theoretical download speeds of up to 100 Mbps.* We’ve made exciting progress and the journey continues as we continue to expand our network and launch more LTE devices.
Many of you have told us that you love LTE and that it’s changed your digital lives. We want to hear your stories! In 100 words or less tell us how LTE has made your life better for a chance to win one of the following LTE devices:
- A Samsung Galaxy Note
- A Samsung Galaxy 8.9 LTE tablet
- A Samsung Galaxy SIII 16GB or,
- A Sierra Wireless LTE Hotspot Prize Pack including a Sierra Wireless LTE hotspot, backpack, water bottle and jacket.
Has LTE transformed your gaming experience? Allowed you to live stream sports in a way that was only a dream not that long ago? Made downloading music and movies so fast that it’s freed up time for other things and reduced your stress levels? Has it improved your business or given you flexibility to do more on the go and improve your bottomline? We are looking for specific examples.
We’ll be selecting the top 8 finalists and publishing their entries on RedBoard on June 28th. From the 8 finalists, we’ll be doing a random draw for 4 winners. For full contest details and rules, go here.
