Massively extend your knowledge-gathering power with Curiyo (Browser Extension)


So I'm reading a super-interesting article on Mega's plan for email privacy (well, interesting to me, anyway), and I start running into tech terms the make me scratch my head. What the heck is WebRTC? What's Perfect Forward Secrecy? No clue. In the old days I'd have to open a new browser tab and do a search for those geeky terms. No more!

With the Curiyo browser add-on I can simply click on the term (if it has a subtle dotted line under it, meaning that Curiyo found it an interesting term I might want to know more about), or long-click on any word in the text (if Curiyo either found the term uninteresting or thought I ought to know what it meant already, since I have a college degree for crying out loud).

Developer Description: "Curiyo saves you time and instantly brings relevant info to you without leaving the page!"

Features:

Long-click: This feature allows you to decide which topic you’d like to know more about, by just long-clicking the term for a full second.

Topic Detection: Curiyo automatically identifies interesting topics on the page you’re reading and subtly underlines them.

Relevant content: Curiyo gives you dynamic content from top publishers on the web.

Smart word detection: Curiyo is easy to use! If for instance you want to click on Lana Del Rey, there’s no need to select the whole name (all three parts of it), just long-click anywhere in the word.

Check out the screenshot to see an actual, real-life example of Curiyo in action!

Find out which apps you've recently installed with Recently Installed (Android)


Developer Quote: "Many times we download apps we find interesting from the Play Store and as time adds up we often forget what apps we downloaded. It is the most difficult task to find recently downloaded apps from the hundreds of other apps on your device. Recently Installed makes your life easier by maintaining a list of all the apps you downloaded by date and sorts them by the most recent app first."

That pretty much says it folks, but let me repeat in my own words. This happens to me all the time. I install an app, it goes into my app drawer, then I want to use it. What was the apps name? Can't remember. Do I want to go through my entire inventory of apps to find it? Even assuming I'd recognize it when I see it? That's a big fat NO! Hence the inestimable usefulness of this app!

The Best Free Voice Recording App for Android - Tape-a-Talk


Friends, this is a perfect example of what I bring to our table here at Barry's Best. First, I see a need for an app in my own life. Second, I search for and try just about all the apps available. Third, I choose the best one (IMO). And finally, I share it with all of you! See how much time I saved you?

A couple of weeks ago I was in a meeting with the president of the company I work for in real life, along with a few others, and he (the prez) asked us if we minded if he taped our conversation. He wanted to remember all our great ideas! He placed his phone on the conference table, tapped on the big microphone icon, and off we went. I thought, why don't I do that?

So I went in search of the best, free voice recording app for my Android. My considerations? No hidden costs, like you can only tape 5 minutes free, so buy the pro. Attractive. And simple to use. Here's what I found...

Developer Quote: "Tape-a-Talk is a high quality voice recorder designed for simplicity and is able to record voice notes/voice memos/audio even when the display is off."

Features:

RECORD
✔ Record in high or low quality, in background and with pause function (.wav)
✔ backwards/fast-forward during a recording as on your dictation machine (.wav)
✔ Record by Widget

SHARE
✔ Send, rename and delete recordings
✔ "Fast" Send, now with custom mail recipients
✔ upload to Dropbox, FTP (needs additional apps)

MANAGE
✔ Choose recordings as ringtone
✔ Cut recordings (only wav)
✔ Repair recordings (fix header information of wav-files)
✔ Samplerate and -format can be configured in the settings (working modes may vary from device to device)
✔ ...and much more!

What Has iOS 7 Done to Your iPhone 4/4S?

Here's how to fix some of the lagginess hitting iPhone 4/4S users who've upgraded to iOS 7...

readwrite - October 15, 2013, by Adriana Lee 


According to users Web-wide, the latest iOS 7 seems to have made legacy Apple smartphones a bit dumber. Reports continue to pour in describing crashes, slowness and erratic behavior overtaking iPhone 4s and 4Ses that have upgraded to the newest version of iOS.

Unfortunately for these users, there's no going back. They can't downgrade back to iOS 6—Apple saw to that—which means they're effectively held hostage now. Sure, the captivity is of their own making, but if they ever want to see decent iPhone performance again, the fact remains that they'll have to pay up for a new handset.

Perhaps it should come as no surprise; iOS 7 was designed with the more powerful iPhone 5S and 5C in mind. Yet many users are surprised, to say nothing of annoyed and frustrated. And, mostly, disappointed—especially the longtime users who believed Apple when it said they too could enjoy the strange, new technicolor world.

Convertbee (Android) - A cute and well-designed unit conversion app


Developer Quote: "Convertbee is a good-looking and easy-to-use currency converter and unit converter for length, weight, temperature and multiple other units of measurement. Convertbee is useful for international travelers, students, cooks, construction workers, engineers and anyone else who needs to convert bee-tween units. This unit converter works offline, but an Internet connection is required if you want to update currency exchange rates. Auto updates can be disabled."

Let's all admit that bees are cute. Not the real ones that sting and have weird-looking compound eyes of course, but the cartoon ones. They're chubby and fuzzy and have adorable little antennae. So why not name your unit conversion app after bees, and use the delightful little creature as your mascot, too?


I recently had to do some quick unit conversions and realized I'd failed to add a good app for this purpose to my Android device. I went looking for one and chose this one out of a virtual mountain of them, because of its attractiveness and ease of use. Check it out and see if you agree with my choice.
