• Top 8 apps for your Windows 8 to better your digital entertainment

    Posted on March 6th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    The Windows 8 Beta, which was released by Microsoft on February 29th, brings several excellent and user-friendly new features including the Windows Store, more Metro apps, Internet Explorer 10 platform preview 5, the integration of SkyDrive cloud services and many smaller tweaks. Just like what Microsoft has claimed, there are more than 100,000 changes since the release of the Developer Preview late last year. The launch of the Windows 8 beta also means the launch of the Windows 8 App Store beta. Now, the Windows 8 Customer Preview version is available for customers to free download. From the Windows 8 App Store beta, users could get more software programs and apps for their Windows 8 devices. Here I would like to introduce some top apps for you, from games and news aggregators to video and music apps, some of which are quoted from the Windows 8 App Store beta, while some others are from other resources, based on better digital entertainment on Windows 8 devices, like Windows 8 phone:

    Wordament (Games)

    WordamentThink of Wordament as a slightly modified — yet equally addictive — game of Boggle. The interface is a grid of letters, and you race with other players in real time to form as many words as you can use adjacent letters. This is a beta version of Wordament running on a prerelease version of Windows.  In practice it has been very stable, but it’s possible you will run into some glitches.

    Slacker Radio (Entertainment)

    Slacker RadioSlacker Radio is an interactive Internet radio service available in the US and Canada. Listeners can access the service on the web, through mobile apps on multiple smartphones as well as on Slacker Personal Radio Players and other devices. It allows users to create and share customized music stations. Slacker allows users to customize one of their programmed stations (for instance, Top hits) or start with music similar to an artist or song, and then customize that.

    Vimeo (Entertainment)

    VimeoVimeo is a respectful community of creative people who are passionate about sharing the videos they make. You can freely upload, share and view videos.

    FREE online video downloader (Entertainment)

    Free Online Video DownloaderA Free online video downloader is an app which could help you to free download online videos from online video sharing sites, just like Vimeo, YouTube, Myspace, etc. With this you can freely download online videos and movies for unlimited playback even without network connectivity.

    Blu-ray ripping app (Entertainment)

    Blu-ray Ripping programA Blu-ray ripping program would help you easily watch Blu-ray movies on Windows 8 devices with the ability to rip and convert Blu-ray to video friendly to your Windows 8, meanwhile you can also rip Blu-ray to video for online video sharing, which absolutely betters your digital entertainment.

    Evernote (Lifestyle)

    EvernoteEvernote is a suite of software and services designed for notetaking and archiving. A “note” can be a piece of formatted text, a full webpage or webpage excerpt, a photograph, a voice memo, or a handwritten “ink” note. Notes can also have file attachments. Notes can be sorted into folders, then tagged, annotated, edited, given comments, searched and exported as part of a notebook. Evernote supports a number of operating system platforms (including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Chrome OS, Android, iOS and WebOS), and also offers online synchronization and backup services.

    Elements Weather Forecast (Weather)

    Elements WetherElements puts Windows 8′s native weather app to shame. Its best feature is the live tile that’s pinned to your tablet’s homepage, which serves up the essential weather info you need to know at a glance — including the current conditions and three-day forecast. Elements also provides 7-day forecasts, 3-6 hour forecasts and interactive weather maps.

    USA Today (News)

    USA TodayUSA Today is a national American daily newspaper published by the Gannett Company. It was founded by Al Neuharth in 1982. The newspaper vies with The Wall Street Journal for the position of having the widest circulation of any newspaper in the United States, something it previously held since 2003. USA Today nicely matches Microsoft’s vision of the tablet experience.

  • Top 10 Best Paid Apps for Android Mobile Phones and Tablets of 2011

    Posted on December 5th, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    2011 has witnessed the fast and great development of electronic products, especially in mobile phones and portable devices like various tablets. Meanwhile, as the fast growing of electronic product market, various wonderful software programs and hardware devices are created to make these products more user-friendly. Today, I would like to share the Top 10 Best Paid Android Apps of 2011 with all of you guys. These paid Android apps are mostly useful and quite cheap for you to get for your Android mobile phones and tablets. In this year’s list, apps that make your smartphone even smarter, great games and plenty of entertainment options for your buck. Check the following list to get to know what the Top 10 Best Paid Android Apps are.

    Pano

    PanoPano is a little app from the App Store which you can pick up for just £1.79. As the name suggests it allows you to take a series of snaps to produce a really wide panoramic image of the scene – and it does in a beautifully simple and clever way. It allows you to create on-the-spot-panoramic photos by snapping a series of side-by-side individual shots. Different from a computer Video Editor program to stitch your photos together, this app can merge on the device up to 16 photos into a 360-degree high-resolution photo saved directly to the camera roll.

    Vignette

    VignetteVignette allows you to create artsy photos with your phone’s camera, with 84 effects and almost 60 frames to choose from. You can use retro effects or Polaroid-style frames too, and the app supports the full resolution of your camera, so you get high-resolution photo results ready to print or share.

    SwiftKey Keyboard

    SwiftKey KeyboardSwiftKey Keyboard is an alternative keyboard for your device, with a twist. The keyboard learns the way you type by scanning your SMS messages to see what words you’re most likely to use, so it can accurately predict what words you want to type – making the whole typing process considerably faster.

    Tasker

    TaskerTasker makes your smartphone even smarter by allowing you to customize sets of actions based on triggers such as time, day or location. For example, you can automate your phone to decrease the ringer volume and brightness automatically when you get home, or to switch off Wi-Fi when you leave home.

    SketchBook Pro

    SketchBook ProSketchBook Pro turns your Honeycomb tablet into a canvas ready for you to draw or paint on. The wide range of tools and brushes available can help you create true masterpieces (it uses the same paint engine as its professional desktop counterparts), or just keep your kids entertained for a little while.

    Android Video Converter

    Android Video ConverterThe Android Video Converter is all-in-one best video converting software to operate on your computer, helping you easily convert various videos and movies and audios in different formats to Android compatible video and audio formats so as to let you freely watch videos/movies and enjoy music on Android devices. Of course, if you are using Mac computers, you need to use a Mac Android Video Converter.

    Plex

    PlexInstead of converting your movies to play on your phone or tablet, you can use Plex to stream them wirelessly directly from a PC or Mac (with the free companion app). The app interface combines your own media (music, video, photos) with popular online content from various sources too, and you can spend your time watching video rather than waiting for it to convert.

    Locale

    LocaleLocale is a powerful phone automator that allows you to manage settings based on predefined locations. You can set specific ringer types and volumes for work, home or any other locations detected via Wi-Fi or GPS. Additional paid extensions can give you extra functionality to control SMS messages or headphones.

    LogMeIn Ignition

    LogMeIn IgnitionLogMeIn Ignition allows you to remotely access your PC or Mac from an Android phone or tablet, so you can control desktop software or access files from the multitouch display. The app uses a free desktop counterpart for basic control functions, or you can go pro (free 30-day trial), which also allows you to do file transfers or print remotely,

    Amazon Free App Reminder

    Amazon Free App ReminderIt might be ironic to pay for an app that gets you a free app everyday, but you can save some good cash this way. Amazon Free App Reminder sends you daily notifications and details about the free app of the day offered in the alternative Amazon app store, so you don’t forget about your daily freebie.

    Most of these Top 10 Best Paid Android Apps offer trial free versions too, so you won’t be left out of pocket if they’re not for you. Still, there are many other paid and free Android apps for all Android users to enhance digital entertainment, like Domin Run, Read It Later, Priority Call Filter, etc. Android users could get more online. I would introduce more paid and free apps for all operation systems, including Android OS devices, iOS devices, Windows Microsoft devices, etc. So, stay tuned for more useful information.

    Who will be the big winners in the end? According to the results of last few years of Grammy Awards, the people who have been nominated most always become the final losers, but things may change this year. Among the seven nominations of Kanye West, there are 5 nominations belong to Kanye West’s rapping style, which means higher rate for being awarded. It would not even be surprised for Kanye West to win all of these five awards. But, Kanye West might lose in competing with Adele’s Rolling in the Deep for the Song of the Year Award. The second big winner might emerge between Adele and Bruno Mars, mostly Adele. Of course, these are just our guessing. We need to wait for the result next year. Stay tuned for more information about 2012 54th Grammy Awards.

    Posted on November 29th, 2011 David Brooks | 2 comments

    The pregnant pop super star Beyoncé just dropped the official music video for Dance for You, her sixth single off “4” album. This black-and-white Dance for You music video clip might be shot before or during the very early stages of her pregnancy, as the pregnant super star is seen without her now-famous baby bump in the video. Beyoncé’s also been out promoting her Live At Roseland: Elements Of 4 DVD, which not only includes incredible footage from her gig at NYC’s Roseland Ballroom, but the deluxe version is jam-packed with extra music as well.

    Beyonce - Dace for YouIn this moody, black-and-white, film noir style video, Beyoncé plays a fierce yet sultry woman in need of some detective services. Decked only in a trench coat and a minidress, Beyoncé slinks her way into the detective’s office and seduces him. She hops up on the detective’s desk, dramatically sweeps some papers to the ground and proceeds to give him a private lap dance rife with hair tossing, tie grabbing and leg twirling moves. With an impermeable smirk on his face, the detective watches in delight as Beyoncé confidently struts toward him. Check the bellow Beyoncé – Dance For You official music video from YouTube:
