Best World News App for Android and Apple Smartphones (and devices)…

You have to take my word on this. The best world news app for Android and Apple Smartphones (and devices) is “SmartNews”… It is one of the first apps I install on my phone and other supported devices (tablet, Chromebook, etc…). This app is a news aggregator that will automatically curate must-read stories in an attractive tabbed interface that is categorized. You can even customize and add specific news sources. Trust me, if you want the news as it is breaking, this is the news app to get…

A “killer app” file manager for your Android phone…

Being a tech guy, having a good file manager (or file explorer) is a must. On our Android phones, the baked-in file managers they ship with the phones are rudimentary and in my opinion horrible. Then there are the third-party file managers that are a great step above, but what I have found is that many of these file managers (some good and some not so good) have become bloated to the point that they can leave a pretty big footprint on your device (and are not easy to navigate). So, I went on the hunt again in the Google Play Store and came across a file manager called “Cx File Explorer”. I almost overlooked it and I am glad I did not.

How to turn your Android Phone into a file server and quickly transfer files to any computer …

Using a web browser on any computer, you can access the files on your phone (and transfer them to any computer) using an Android app called “Recall”. First, install Recall on your phone from the Google Play Store. With Recall you don’t have to install anything to a PC or laptop to access your files. Just go to web.recall.im, scan a QR-code, and you can list, search, preview and download your files. End-to-end encryption, no passwords to lose. The “Recall” app, once installed and ran, turns your phone into a file server. Transfer of files uses end-to-end encryption for security and the developer’s web site touts the app is safer than using many of the popular online cloud services. Recall, at the moment appears to be relatively new; is FREE at the moment; but, if this app takes off (like I think it will), there will be a paid or pro option made available.

Square Launcher – Best Android Launcher for your Phone, Tablet or TV Box

I have always had an obsession for organization; and as a result, when it comes to computers, phones, etc…, I love the ability to organize my stuff on these devices and make it visually appealing. I have messed around with just about every Android launcher out there and just recently I started messing around with a launcher called Square Launcher. This launcher is different in that it replicates the Windows 10 Metro UI (user interface). Once I downloaded and installed Square Launcher, it took me short time to learn my way around and before I knew it I had a visually designed Metro type interface on my phone (see below) that no one else has. How good is this app? I am buying this app ($4.99) to unlock the other features; it is that good…

Visually Organize Anything

If you are like me, you save a lot of internet based information. The problem is that you can get “discombobulated” and forget where you saved this information that results in that feeling of being disorganized. Recently, I came across a web based app called “Bublup” that works across multiple platforms (web, android, ios) that gives you the ability to keep links in the same folders as PDFs, photos, videos, GIFs, notes, and other files. In other words, you can visually organize anything with one application. Add the browser extension and you can rocket anything you save to Bublup. Here at “Tech News for You” I have been testing this application and have come to the conclusion that “Bublup” may just end up being the app of the year.

Bublup – A visually appealing bookmarking app where you can save, collect, and share just about anything…

Bublup is the new modern visually appealing way to collect and save, not only links, but PDF’s, photos, videos, GIF’s, notes, emails and other types of files. These items can be saved in the same folders together, making it ideal for research and for establishing collections. A cool component of Bublup is when you save something, other relevant information relating to the topic you saved, will bubble up. There is also a method to import your bookmarks into Bublup from Chrome, Safari and Firefox. With a FREE account you get 3 GB of storage and if that is not enough, go for one of the paid options. So far, here at Tech News for You, we are liking what we see with Bublup… Almost forgot, you can create Roll web pages instantly from Bublup folders. Customize them easily into beautiful stories and collections of your content including links, photos, videos, GIFs, notes, PDFs, and other files. Bublup is available on the web, in your browser, and as an iOS and Android app.
