Apps

Gatwick Airport, England

I’m a US citizen that recently went on a 10-day holiday across the pond to the UK. Before leaving the US I researched to see if my cell phone would work while overseas. I went to the Consumer Cellular site with fingers crossed looking for a way to use my cell phone outside of the United [...]

Duolingo

Not too long ago I did a quick review of a website called Duolingo. It’s helping me to learn how to speak Spanish. Back when I did the review I was 6% Spanish fluent. Now, according to Duolingo, I’m a whopping 30% fluent (I’m taking it slow). In my earlier review, I failed to mention [...]

DuoLingo

As we age we are constantly reminded that we must “use it or lose it.” In this case, I’m talking about physical exercise and mental acumen. Who would have thought there would be apps to help keep both intact? Let me rephrase that. The mere fact of downloading the app and getting it to work [...]

Hands-Free

For quite some time I had been trying to figure out how to use a headset with the Dragon NaturallySpeaking remote microphone app. While the remote app frees me from being tethered to the computer when dictating, I ran into the problem of having only one hand free. The other hand is stuck holding the [...]

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 [...]
