Software review of Infuse

Icon

Paid review: No (Standard)

Name: Infuse
Developer: FireCore
Version: 6.5.2
Platforms: iOS, TvOS, Romours about a future MacOS
Price: Free to download and use but if you want it all it is either a subscription at $0.99 for monthly, Yearly $9.99 Infuse Pro or Lifetime $59.99

The app is a movie player which packs everything you need from downloading of the movie from your NAS, showing them no matter what format you pick, and it just works. My old NAS is too old to run Plex anymore so was thinking about getting a new one but this awesome software shows me all the meta data about my movies and TV-shows and it is no longer feeling slow. The only 2 small minus I have is one you cannot play your music but I use Apple Music now so do not care and two you cannot edit you own data inside the app which sometimes annoy me by showing Russian covers for my movies when the movie is English. I use it very often as I am a big movie freak and it offers to tell you what you have seen and everything. So super awesome movie player, the step after VLC which I also used before.

Famous last words: If your movies is on a NAS which is too slow for plex (another great steaming software of own media) then use this for your devices and if Mac version is coming soon it is going to me player of players

Software review of Usage

Icon

Paid review: No (Standard)

Name: Usage
Developer: Oleh Stasula
Version: 4.7.0
Platforms: iOS
Price: Free to download but $2.99 for the pro version which allow you to compare iPhones and amounts various tips.

The app is a pretty simple app as it a way to see anything you ever wanted to know about your phone. It shows you your network where it tracks your uses and you can set a limit so you know when you are getting lost without data if you do not have unlimited. It also checks network connection, speeds and everything else you want to know about your network. Check your Memory allocation and Storage usage too which is just as simple so you can always see it inside the app as the network. It also have have Battery Status in case you want some better look than the one in your menu bar. It can tell you everything about your phone better than yourself and if you ever want to compare to the latest iPhone or iPad look no further and check inside the app too. As all apps updated to iOS 14, it also have widgets and I am mainly using it network as I love to follow how much data I use but all the things I mention can be seen as widget but remember they are not update as much as the old widgets. The last thing you can do is that the design is very very much up to you so if you want blue icon and red widgets you can do that. So all in all a complete app in my mind, that gets better and better which each update.

Famous last words: Check out your phone before it check you out with no ads or subscriptions at a low price of $2.99

Software review of Paper

Icon

Paid review: No (Standard)

Name: Paper
Developer: Mihhail Lapushkin
Version: 1.11 (iOS) 2.28 (MacOS)
Platforms: iOS, MacOS
Price: Free to download and use but if you want it all, it cost a one time fee of 49.99usd for MacOS, $8.99 for iPhone and $17.99 for iPad

The app is a super simple writing app where you pick a place to save your files (iCloud Drive for sync) and then you just start writing. It is using markdown which is a coding syntax which makes things easy to do without making your focus on the bling everywhere. This is one of the things I love as I love simple things and I recently switched over to it from Ulysses so now I am writing my novel there. I want to say a lot of things about it but it is so simple that I just will shut up and let you enjoy it yourself. It comes in black and white lol.

Famous last words: if simple + writing = you will love paper

Software review of Headspace

Paid review: No (Standard)

Name: Headspace: Meditation & Sleep
Developer: Headspace Inc.
Version: 3.125.0 on iOS (requires iOS 12.0)
Platforms: iOS, Android and web
Price: 12,99usd a month or 69,99usd a year.

Now that we have the boring part of the review out of the way I would like to features. What better way to do that other than that to show you some exceptional photos from inside the app I kidnapped from their website.

I use the app daily every morning and I am trying to make myself use it for sleeping too. So far I have 411 days in a row and it could be a lot higher if I have focused 100%

Famous last words: buy it now or regret it later and it the price it is a steal on what it does to your mind.

Software review of Slowly

Icon

Paid review: No (Standard)

Name: Slowly
Developer: Slowly Communications Ltd.
Version: 6.2.11
Platforms: iOS, Android, Web
Price: Free to download and use all you want but if you want to support them it cost $42.99 a year, while you also can buy coins to buy new stamps.

The app take a place in my heart and I have only used it for a few days which is very rare for an app. The app is a way of finding penpals and now I know some of you think penpals is expensive and no one sends letters anymore. Wrong, this app named slowly is penpals made digital so you send letters as mails but instead of being instant like messenger and other digital services this takes longer depending on how far away you are. The app is free to use all you want, but if you want to support them you can do so and get dubble up at all features like number of freinds and few settings. It also have a web version but that is a bit like runing whatsapp in a browser so far I have understood so far but still great to have. You are also having lots of settings to decide what to talk about and not to talk about or what sex you want to contact. All in all this is making a great app that I cannot wait to support and use even more.

Famous last words: Penpals made digital

Software review of Drops & Scripts

Icon

Paid review: No (Standard)

Name: Drops & Scrips
Developer: PLANB LABS OU
Version: 35.7 for Drops and 8.4 for Scripts on iOS 8.4
Platforms: iOS, Android and web
Price: 10usd a month or 69,99usd a year.

The apps are very simple to learn and use as they are very finger freindly but lets us start with drops:

Drops

Drops works by you pick a language and a subject you want to learn and then the words drops one by one and quickly you have a few words to play with. You can decide if you want to learn the word or not and it work simple like the rest. The words you want to learn show ups in different ways, from spelling to picking between other words.

Scrips

Scrips starts the same but instead of seeing the signs you get to play with them yourself and that works too so lots of differernt drawing and which works good too. It is a bit hard to remember them but guess I learn it slowly.

I use the apps daily every morning in the train and I am trying to learn Chinsese and have tried Tagalog before

Famous last words: if you want an easy way to learn languages then you found the right place

Hardware review of Nimbus+

A Nimbus+ from steelseries

Paid review: No (Standard)

Name: Nimbus+
Creator: Steelseries
Platforms: iOS, MacOS, TvOS
Price: 69.99usd

First time in a long time that I am reviewing some hardware, but I really felt the need to do it when I got it. Lets us get the bad things away first, it has some bug that make you connect to your mac and such before the nimbus+ will freeze but a quick connect to the engine will fix and update it so it just works. So that was the only bad thing except for some of you who might want it on andriod and windows too but you can get your own version. I like that it works with all my Apple device with out me doing much other than connect to bluetooth and it have a not tested it yet but heard it should be working with Apple Arcade and I love that it has so long batteri life of 50 hours plus that it just charges with a lightning cable which in thise days a small issuse as it does not included it. It is laying good in my hands when I use it and already love it so is on my way to get Apple Arcade now.

Famous last words: Steelseries as Apple controller

Chapter 4 – Emperor’s palace – Part 6

“You are finally awake” the young man said even that 000001 tried to hide that she was awake. She stretched her body toot the pain stopped her before she could complete it. There was silence between them for a while as they looked into each other and neither of them knew what to say. “Where…?” Managed 000001 to say before the young man broke in. “You are in the emperor’s palace and forgive my manners but I am crown prince 000005…. I was the guy who landed on you, and I am sorry for the pain I gave you” 000005 said low while 000001 smiled a bit. 000001 wanted to reply him but her belly took the words out of her mouth and 000005 started laughing before quickly yelled loudly “Servants, bring food now” and before 000001 could say thanks or anything else 3 servants entered the room and started to serve food. 000001 could not believed all the food and started eating quickly as she was hunger after the trip there, she had not been eating since the evening 2 days ago. 000005 smiled and joined her eating while sending out the servants out again so they was alone again. “So what brings you here? 000004 has not spoke a word to me and just left the room with my father after you was place here” 000005 asked while trying to sound friendly and curious on the same time. 000001 smiled before taking another a big bite of the turkey leg she had gotten her hands in. She swallowed the food quickly and slowly started to the story about that she woke up expecting to meet her father after his months training with the men from Shinobe. But instead the town had been attacked by strangers and her mother had sent her away on the family horse, with only a sword and the family medallion. She stopped to eat some more before she showed the medallion before continuing the story. She had gotten to the forest but the bad weather had hidden a low hanging branch which she had hit with such force that it had killed the horse and leaved her very injuries but luckily she had reached 000004 who saved her from the soldiers following her. Later they traveled here she explained as she did not want to tell the crown prince about she had killed soldiers because she feared it would maybe scare him. Then they meet each other on top each other as 000001 had heard 000005 arguing with the guards and she had wanted to give him the family medallion. 000005 took a grip in it and enjoyed the sight of it for a while before letting go again. “I am sorry for your loses but It is a nice medallion you have” 000005 with sorrow in his voice. The plates had turned empty doing the story and it was time for bed again. “Good night, my lady” 000005 said before continuing “Just yell if you need me or a servant as I am sleeping in the room next door” 0000001 smiled and replied “Good night, my lord” and 000005 left the room. 000001 could feel the thoughts of her parents arrive in her mind once more but compared to before there was now a small light there too, the thoughts about crown prince 000005 and the thought of him made she fall asleep fast.

Main actor: Hugh Dancy, known from Hannibal and King Arthur

A woman Beth moves in next door and she is normal and very socail but at first she does not understand him but is still drawn to him in someway.

Bad: It is my favorite movie as I have Asperger’s too so it is hard to put a finger on bad thing. I would not say it is a bad thing but of course there needs some drama in the movie and one of the screens, Adam, learns he had been lied to by Beth because her parents really want to see him and Asperger’s do not normally like new people so she had arranged to meet them behind his back.

Good: Many of the screen have two answers which I will tell more about at my favorite screen

Stars: 7 out of 6 stars as it is done perfectly and my old specail school plus my work use it to explain new people about me.

Favorite screen: I have two since it is my favorite movie.

  1. screen is that Adam and Beth are in bed together, and Adam says he wants to do something again and because it is the middle of the night people would expect sex but instead he wants to pratrice for a job interview.
  2. screen is were Beth is sad, and she needs a hug and because she is learning about Aspergers she respects that he might not want to hug her so she ask if he can hug and he replied yes before she tells him to hug her because he do not get that she need one.

Watch again: Yes, already watched it a lot of times

Final words: If you need a love story with some specail about it, then watch it.

Software review of Apollo

Icon

Paid review: No (Standard)

Name: Apollo for Reddit
Developer: Christian Selig former Apple employee
Version: 1.10.3 on iOS (requires iOS 12.0)
Platforms: iOS
Price: Free to download and use but if you want extra features and cool stuff check the prices in the pictures bellow

This app is the best app there is for Reddit and it is so very awesome in every aspect and I use it daily when checking Reddit, almost better than watching it from a laptop or computer. I only have 2 minor issues and do not know if it possible to add. The first thing is that I wish I could sync my favorite subreddits between the web and the Apollo app and second I wish I could jump between pictures and gifs instead of close and open a new one. Other than that I cannot praise it enough. It got everything you expect for an Apple App and more.

Famous last words: Download it now as it is an awesome app for reddit and way better than the official one and buy the pro and ultra too as the creator is doing an awesome job.
