Ex-Apple engineers turn your iOS or Android device into a high performance second display for your Mac & PC…

Duet is the first high performance solution to use your iPad or Android device as a second display for your Mac or PC – unlike other second display apps, Duet Display has zero lag.

accomplish this by turning your mobile device into a second display using the USB to 30 Pin, lightning, or USB-C connection. It is far more stable than Wi-Fi, especially for people on the go. You don’t have to worry about your 802.11n network, your router settings, whether you’re on a VPN, or if you’re downloading or uploading too much data to use your display.

Wakelet – An Amazing Way To Organize Your Online Content Into Collections

I encourage you to take a look at Wakelet, which is an online FREE service that is an amazing way to bookmark, organize and curate content from across the web and use it to create beautiful, informative and engaging collections. What sold me on Wakelet is that I can create collections that can be easily managed, annotated, shared, etc… I can see this service being very useful for educators.

Dark Sky Weather Service Has Joined Apple

Dark Sky is my favorite weather service on the internet. Today they announced they have joined Apple. This may be a good thing; but, the bad thing is for Android and Wear OS App users, the app will no longer be available for download. Service to existing users and subscribers will continue until July 1, 2020, at which point the app will be shut down. Subscribers who are still active at that time will receive a refund.

SmartNews- The Only News App You Will Ever Need

I am a news junky and can tell you, I have tried every “news source” app out for my phone and tablet. What I settled on and have used for over a year, is an app called “SmartNews“… This app uses a specially engineered algorithm that automatically curates the must-read stories that matter now (from numerous news sources). With today’s political climate being as it is, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of using more than one source to get your news. Not only will this app pull down news worldwide, you can add official channels from USA Today to TechCrunch, Vox, VICE, People, NBC and more–for free! This app has been downloaded over 20 million times and I can tell you from a personal standpoint, this is the only news app you will ever need. So, save space on your phone or tablet and give SmartNews a try. SmartNews is available as an Android and Apple app (see links below).

An Impressive and Simple Video Calling App

My daughter wanted me to try Facebook Messenger so that we could video chat with the Grand kids… I told her I do not like Facebook and I would have to find an alternative. Within minutes (actually), I found Google Duo in the Google Play Store (see source link below) and we were up and running in no time. (Note: Google Duo is also available at the Apple Store)…

If you want a low overhead video calling app, Google Duo is it. I was majorly impressed… After installing the app and giving the app permission to access my contacts, I simply called my daughter’s cell phone number. She had already installed it and as a result the connection was seamless. You can actually preview who is calling before answering. If you do call someone that does not have the app installed simply tap on “invite” or prearrange that they install the app. Google Duo is as simple as it gets and the video quality is great…

Knock Knock
See the caller before you pick up with Duo’s live preview feature.

Experience faster and more reliable video calls whether you’re on Wi-Fi or on-the-go.

Cross-platform
