Review: PCMag

Many messaging apps require you to give up your phone number to those who you chat with, but Kik only requires a username. And with a bot store already boasting more than 6,000 bots, Kik beat Facebook Messenger and Skype to the punch in the field of artificial conversationalists. Group chat, photo and video sharing, and gaming add to this youth-focused app’s appeal.

Download on iTunes

Review: iTunes

This app is really good! This app is really good like source of information if you know what you need/want or at least about what you need/want to know. It’s not app where you can go to home page and see interesting article. You need to search article which you need so you need to know its name.

It is not a news app, yes it has a news section, but there are not much news and it is very difficult to find news on a particular topic in which you are interested, for example, there you can filter news by country but results will be really bad. It is not news app, but it’s good source of information.

This app also like the website supports many languages. It’s an international app. Full list of supported languages you can find in the app description.

But some people say that Wikipedia is not accurate source of information. Partially I agree with this statement because anyone can edit or create an article in Wikipedia, so for scientists this source is not good.

Also in different languages this app has different articles with a little bit different information.

Review: G2

What do you like best?

I really like the easy interface because in the different wallets I have used it is a bit more complicated to understand where everything is located and in this case it is very simple since in the beginning it shows directly your balance in the different currencies and without any complication, I also think it’s great the security with which it is counted since to initiate session always ask for verification by phone to avoid a possible theft of the account and make it more secure

What do you dislike?

among the negative aspects I think there are very few since most major functions works perfectly well in the only thing that could improve is that when I want to log in my account asks me to authorize the pc in which I am initiating session when practically always use the same for what I think is a bit tedious failure because it is a process that I have to perform every time I want to enter my account

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend taking care not to start session in disconnected equipment since it can lead to the theft of the account and to keep the account secure associate direct means of communication such as email among others

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

in my particular case it has helped me to receive payments from my clients without any inconvenience since in most cases they are immediately available to be able to use the funds removing a weight from me regarding the way in which I can receive payments of clients abroad

I have loved using Hipmunk. The design is beautiful. Prioritization buttons are just right. I like being able to optimize the return and then go back to the outbound flight. The main problem is a lack of coverage of Delta. Is Delta just saying no to use of their data? Is it a matter of paying them for data?

Signal offers the easiest way to send secure messages. The ZRTP protocol it uses for calling is thoroughly tested as is the open source Signal protocol for sending text. The organization that supports it is run on grant money by volunteers and is disinterested in monetizing Signal’s users or their data. It’s so trusted that messaging apps from Facebook and Google use it for their secure messaging options.

Review: iTunes

This app was great for a long time easy and fun to use, but some things the app has been and now aren’t doing have been given me problems let me explain, first on add a pic when I place a pic with a background I get all options for editing that added pic, but if it’s a png pic that has no background the options goes down from 10 options to five and the main one I’m speaking of is the crop options they’re just not there anymore and I need those options for my pics I make, second when I use multiple pics and I move them out of the main screen they disappear behind the black wall of the outer screen and I can’t see them unless I tag on them and if I forget where I put it I have to go tapping around to find it that didn’t use to happen, third on the text option when I type a word or set of words there use to be outline points around the word to make it fit how I want the words place on the pic, now all I can do is make it bigger or smaller and when I move the words any way they either end up one long bar of a word or they’re stack on top of each other centered not placed like I want them.

Now do I need to wait until a new update comes or find a new app !
