Though the exam week is still on, that still won’t stop me from posting here. Today’s post is a bit more personal maybe. To some it may even be helpful. To some it would be like, ‘Been there. Done that’. To some it would give them a little more insight on devices, apps and games. For me, its my bragging rights and yes, I just wrote that for real! 😀
So, here I will write about my devices, apps that I use most often and games that I have recently started playing and without further ado, here are my…
1. Sony Xperia L (Running 4.1.2 Jelly Bean)
Well, both my devices were bought from my Fiverr Funds but the L came first. I bought it when it launched and I must say aside from all the reviews on the Internet, this phone is pretty decent. The processor is fast and it has lagged just for once since I bought it. The GPU is great and the multi-tasking is good. People say a lot of crap about its camera but it is really good, if you learn to use it. Overall, it’s a pretty decent phone and I love it completely.
2. Google Nexus 7 (2012) (Running 4.3 Jelly Bean)
Recently bought, not a week old, I am in love with this device. Even though it’s the older version, this is really awesome. It’s so smooth and you can use it like butter. Though, I’m not a big fan of large games (Asphalt series, Modern Combat series) but they work frictionless on this awesomely crafted device. This again came from my Fiverr earnings probably the last batch of ’em. With OTG support (though I had to buy an app for it) and Stock firmware, the actual Android, this is a dream to those who want performance with design. Lightweight and perfect.
1. Google Keep
This is one of my favourite apps. It syncs across all devices and is neat. The best part is that it’s from Google so it is completely connected to Google account and carries the same Holo look that all Google apps have. I track like my whole life using its check-lists. Play Store Link.
2. Google Now
We live in the ‘Now’ now (pun intended). Google Now is the perfect app. It has voice, it has replies, it’s obviously better than Siri and it configures itself according to my actions, movements and preferences. It never shows me distance to school on Sundays which is really intelligent. Powered by Google’s famous Knowledge Graph it is the perfect search engine and phone client. Play Store Link.
P.S. – It even has a built-in Scientific Calculator. 😛
I was not a fan of this app earlier but since I started using it, I’ve read almost all articles on my Pocket even the ones which could have been easily read at the time. Why? It offers a clatter free, simple reading space which is really nice for people who read articles. No ads. No pop ups. Just the article and you. Play Store Link.
This is an app not from the Play Store but from those people who are legendary. This turns my phone/tab into a FTP server accessible by my PC or any other device connected to my router. Not only that, it also transfers GBs of data without crashing ever and since I started using this, I haven’t connected the USB cable to the PC. Google Code Link.
5. Wolfram Alpha
This is like that PC which Courage, the Cowardly Dog had. Ask it anything, show it anything and challenge it with anything – It gives results, checking calculus answers was never easier. It even does physics, chemistry, geography, history and many other subjects and it does them right. Play Store Link.
This is what its name suggests, it is a MedHelper. This app reminds you to take medicines, counts pills, alerts about low stocks and even saves your Doctors’ information. The interface is neat and this is one of the most useful apps a person can have. Play Store Link.
I was never a fan of having games on my mobile, but now I have them on my Nexus instead.
I am more a fan of games that boggle your brain and look good than that 3-D, hardcore, nerdy RPGs at least not on mobile devices.
I didn’t like it at start but now I’m addicted to it. It is the second perfect time-pass agent. The objective is to clear the maximum number of dots using lines within a time limit of 60 seconds or in 30 moves. Play Store Link.
This is another clean, Holo and interesting version of the original 7×7. There is a grid of 7×7 blocks and you need to place together at least 4 blocks so that they get cleared off. Sounds easy. Is not. Play Store Link.
These are the only two games I think which are worth mentioning. I play Asphalt and stuff too but they aren’t new, at least their concepts aren’t.
So, this ends this post hope you got one of those feelings I mentioned in the start.
