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 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

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.
