Apps

Sync-iTunes

As an Android user, I always wanted to know if there was an easy way to transfer music/books from my iTunes account onto my android phone. Imagine my glee when I came across the Sync iTunes app that does just that. The best part about it is the app transfers the music wirelessly. I not [...]

Pushbullet

I recently downloaded the Pushbullet app and it has made my writing life easier. Often times when I’m writing I find myself repeating the phrase “I wish I could just…” or “It would be nice if I were able to…” When I hear myself say that too many times its time to go app shopping. As a [...]

roots

Back in December of 2013, I aired my frustration about the Samsung Galaxy Note’s bloatware and the inability to install certain apps because I did not have root access. For you newbies like me, root access is tantamount to having administrative privileges on the device. Imagine that… I bought a device and I don’t have [...]

Family-Locator

After using Sygic’s GPS navigation app (I’ll write a more detailed review of the navigation app in the near future) I decided to try their Family Locator app. It has proven to be rather useful. Just as the name implies, it locates members of your family. Once the app is installed, you have the option [...]

Lost

A little over a year ago I wrote a post regarding cell phone GPS apps. I had a tough time using the on-screen navigation systems and things did not improve over the year. Not only did the GPS use quite a bit of my monthly data allotment, it was cumbersome with plenty of hiccups. Having [...]

Gmail-Accounts

With more than one Gmail account comes more than one Google Drive storage cloud. More than one storage cloud could be a good thing or a confusing thing. It’s a good thing when you carefully register your various Android devices using the same Google Gmail account. It becomes more confusing when you use different accounts [...]

Mobile-Deposit

Save gas and save time by using your smartphone or mobile device to make bank deposits. Why drive to the bank when you can deposit your checks right where you stand (or sit). If this old dinosaur can handle the task, so can you. Most, if not all financial institutions have their own banking app [...]

Google-Docs

Since I’m in the middle of reformatting my computer (that’s a long story), I don’t have access to my usual software. Being that I’m inspired to write, I needed software that would facilitate writing and still be operational on a computer that is not fully functional. Since I have a Google Drive, I thought why [...]

iPod-to-Smartphone

This was not a conscious decision. I abandoned my iPod because my iPod abandoned me first. How the Split Occurred My iPod died. Well, it didn’t die, but the On/Off button stopped working. The iPod remained on but without having the button to activate the screen, I couldn’t control what played. I had an endless [...]

Samsung-Netflix

I had the scare of my life when my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 crashed and wouldn’t turn back on. I was so shocked that all I could do was stare at the device in disbelief. Having had the device for all of about 6 months, this wasn’t what I expected. Here’s the scenario leading up [...]
