Netflix and Android - chromecast, downloading, profiles - close to perfection!

Netflix and Android have always had a great relationship, but over recent years the app has really gone from strength to strength. The interface is fantastic and the feature set continues to grow in meaningful ways, making it one of my must-have apps.
The first example that comes to mind is obviously Chromecast support. Now this isn’t a Netflix exclusive option, and it is supported well in many media apps, but Netflix and Chromecast work so seamlessly well together that I struggle to think about how I survived before the pairing existed!
Next is the newly integrated ‘Download’ option, which allows users to download content and watch it on the go without a data connection.  Honestly, Netflix kicked it out of the park with this one – it could not be easier to use, it includes all the right settings (save to SD, definition quality control, etc) – and best of all it is all within the existing price brackets. I almost feel they could have charged extra for this service alone – but am ext…

Smart Tools


Today’s app of the day is Smart Tools.


Smart Tools is the Swiss-army-knife of android apps, providing a number of great tools for mobile
users. Included under the hood are roughly nine separate apps, allowing to you measure length and
angles, distances, direction (compasses) and sound and vibration.

What makes Smart Tools unique is the smart way it utilises your smart phones camera. With the
distance measurer for example, you simply turn on your camera, aim at a target, and using basic
geometry, your phone will tell you the distance to that object.

Other interesting apps include a vibration tester (allegedly the force on my desk by my keyboard
typing is equivalent to a category 1 earthquake) and a decibel counter (my typing is equivalent to a
Busy street or an alarm clock at 80dB!), as well as a metal detector.

All in all, Smart Tools is a great utility to have installed on your device, which will likely come in handy when you least expect it!




 

In the words of the developer:


You can measure length, angle, distance, height, direction, metal, sound ...
Smart Tools is a toolbox of a collection of 1-5 series.
It includes 5 Pro versions that have 15 tools. In a word, All-in-One.
Part 1. Length, Angle, Slope, Level : Smart Ruler Pro
Part 2. Distance, Height, Width, Area : Smart Measure Pro
Part 3. Compass, Metal detector, GPS : Smart Compass Pro
Part 4. Sound level meter, Vibrometer : Sound Meter Pro
Part 5. Flashlight : Smart Light Pro

For more information, see the manual for each of the apps, see the Youtube video and visit the blog. http://androidboy1.blogspot.com/
I know that several phones cannot turn on LED light. I'll support them one by one.
Even more tools will be added soon. The next is Speed Gun, ... etc.
Do you want to get more tools and features? Please send an email. I'll reply to it ASAP. I hope my apps are useful to your Smart Life.
Thanks.

Price: $2.50

Wish - shopping made fun - and easy - and cheap!

These days sites like Amazon or eBay make buying and selling online quick and easy. Unfortunately, sometimes the sheer breadth of products available (everything on earth!) makes it difficult to impulse buy or get the same experience one haves when wandering around a shop or past windows. Luckily, apps now exist to replicate that experience.

The best of the lot is Wish - which has the tagline 'shopping made fun' which could not be more true! When opening the app there are lots of categories to choose from, allowing you to pick the type of products you want to browse and going from there. Buying and checking out is only ever a few clicks away and if you are not careful you will very quickly load up on more products than you need!

I've launched sites that help out with buying cheap gadgets in the past, and it was heavily inspired by apps such as Wish which really allow someone to sit back and take pleasure in the shopping experience again! Download Wish now!

Hearthstone - better late than never - the best android card game!

I'll cut to it - Hearthstone is one of the best games you can get for your Android device - in fact, I am sure that plenty of people would argue it is one of the best games you can get at all - even on a PC! With that in mind, there's no reason not to jump in now and start experiencing this great offering from Blizzard. 
The gameplay is turn based card strategy, think Magic the Gathering, but fare more simple. Every turn the number of points you have to spend on cards increases, so it means that games start quite evenly handed but can escalate quickly, especially when more experienced players know how to string together the abilities of their cards.
The objective is to eliminate the health of your opponent - and once you succeed the victory is entirely satisfying, with some truly fantastic sounds and effects that drive home the sense of achievement. This is of course a free to play game, and it is possible to spend real world money in the store but it is not required to have …
