StuffMerge Clipboard Composer – Indie app of the day

Posted by wicked October - 20 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

What is StuffMerge Clipboard Composer?

StuffMerge Clipboard Composer is an application that gives you a more rich copy and paste experience. It’s true that such a task is generally mundane but if you copy and paste a lot of things then this could be very useful. It’s free to use in the Google Play Store with a pro version available for $1.17US.

Here’s how the app works. You open StuffMerge Clipboard Composer and a white tab will appear on the left side of the screen. You then go forth and copy many things. Everything you copy will be automatically pasted into the app which you can then bring up by tapping on the white tab. You can do with this list of copied things as you wish such as exporting to Evernote, emailing to a friend, or sharing on social media.

You can also do a host of things inside of the app. You can create groups if you need to copy and paste from multiple sources and it can even handle things like copying an image. The video shows a great example of this with the eBay app. You can copy the link and then you can also copy the thumbnail image so you can have both. There is even an experimental OCR feature that will attempt to copy text and images even on sites and from apps that don’t let you select text to copy.

StuffMerge Clipboard Composer review

It’s a clipboard on steroids!

PROS
  • Allows you to copy multiple things that get pasted directly into the app.
  • That includes images.
  • Some cursory organizational features that get expanded in the paid version allow you copy/paste more things.
  • Free with no in app purchases for the free version.
  • Share anywhere once you’re done.
  • Easier than copying something, opening an app, pasting it, then going back and copying something else and re-opening the app and pasting it.
CONS
  • It has an admittedly slim use case.
  • Some issues here and there but nothing serious.
  • You’ll have to figure out what to do with your copy/paste info unless you buy it because the app won’t store data in the free version.

8.0

Overall, the use case for an app like this is admittedly slim. It’s great for things like online Christmas shopping and being able to export to anywhere is quite handy. The free version gives you all of the core features with the paid version expanding on those features including the ability to store the data after the app has been closed.

SeatGeek 2.0 is out, introduces more customized ticket buying experience [video]

Posted by wicked October - 20 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off


SeatGeek is an application that’s already fairly popular. It keeps track of over 140,000 live events that range from sports and music to live theater and festivals. Using SeatGeek, you can browse events that interest you and buy tickets to those events. Usually they’re at discounted prices or at least at the lowest prices they can possibly sell for. It’s earned a pretty decent following that’s about to get bigger because SeatGeek 2.0 has been released.

The new version brings a lot of interesting features. They include:

  • Tracking – Users can now track their favorite artists, teams, and events. That means if you’d like to stay up to date on your local sports team, you can sort of “subscribe” to them on SeatGeek and track tickets to those events. If your favorite musician or band goes on tour, you’ll be able to get updates on that when it happens.
  • Notifications – Along with tracking comes notifications. The app will now notify you when your favorite things come to town.
  • Curated browsing – A more specific browsing experience that lets people narrow down their searches to find the things they actually want instead of browsing through a bunch of stuff they don’t want.

SeatGeek 2.0 update
According to the press release, all of the current core features will remain intact so current users should only see new stuff and not the removal of older stuff. The update is rolling out starting today and it’s totally free to use with no in app purchases. It really is an application that all fans of live events should have in their app drawer. If you want to see this app and its new features in action, check out the quick look video embedded at the top of the page. Should you want to try it out, here’s a link to SeatGeek in the Google Play Store.

Pluto.TV – Indie app of the day

Posted by wicked October - 19 - 2014 - Sunday Comments Off

PlutoTV featured

What is Pluto.TV

Pluto.TV is a video aggregation service that finds interesting video content on the web and allows you to follow and watch it. It utilizes a familiar and interesting user interface that is reminiscent of your standard TV guide. It’s currently free to use with no in app purchases.

Here’s how it works. You open the application and you’ll see what looks like a TV guide. There are “channels” that you can tune into that show you content relevant to that channel’s name. For instance, you can find tech news from various tech sources or music channels from various artists. You simply “tune in” to that station and it begins playing video. Then you can set up your device somewhere and have what is essentially a little TV.

The interface will be familiar to most people but it does feel incomplete in some ways. There isn’t a settings menu so you can’t change anything. That means if a setting like the push notifications bother you then you can’t do anything about it. The functionality is cool but it’s also somewhat limited. We would’ve liked to have seen more features. The service also only pulls from a select few sources for right now so you’ll see a lot of content from the same sources without much variance.

PlutoTV review

It’s like YouTube and television had a baby.

PROS
  • You can tune into ‘channels’ that play the kind of content you like much like a television.
  • Simple, familiar interface is easy to use and looks really good.
  • For most, videos will play well and there is an HD/SD option to turn down the resolution if your internet speed is slower.
  • Free to use with no in app purchases.
CONS
  • The Chromecast was basically made for apps like this and this app doesn’t support it.
  • No settings menu, no option to do things like select favorite stations or search for content. It really bottlenecks the experience.
  • Some people have had issues playing video. It’s not widespread but that may be a problem you run into.

7.0

Overall, Pluto.TV is a pretty fun little application. It does fall short here and there but it’s also a new application and we hope more things get added in the future. If you’re interested, the app is free to use with no in app purchases for right now.

Tingz.Me – Indie app of the day

Posted by wicked October - 18 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

What is Tingz.Me?

Tingz.Me is an application that helps you discover applications. According to the app description, it’s an app discovery platform that tailors its recommendations based on what you search for and what you like. It’s free to use with no in app purchases.

Here’s how it works. You download the application, open it, and it’ll show you a cursory set of recommendations. Then the app will work in the background as you live your life and occasionally toss you more apps that may be of use to you based on your interests. It’s a classic “fire and forget” kind of app in that it does most of the work while you’re not paying any attention to it.

During our testing, the app seemed to work pretty well. I installed it on my test device which is a veritable hodgepodge of apps and games and it seemed to toss out recommendations based on those things. For instance, I reviewed a lock screen app earlier this week and one of the recommendations was for another lock screen app and for Dashclock, a widget that goes on your lock screen. That means the service does work but you do need to give it time to figure things out. Especially if you’re like and you install a lot of apps or you have a lot of interests.

TingzMe screenshot review

Let it find some apps for you.

PROS
  • Recommendation system based on your searches and installed apps works fairly well a good amount of the time.
  • Free to use with no in app purchases.
  • Very simple to use. Just open the app and forget about it. Check back every now and then for new recommendations.
  • Over time, you may find quite a few useful apps.
CONS
  • It has a slow start and its easy to turn away from it early on. Initially, it only recommended four apps to me.
  • The interface is a little simple but it’s also a little bit dated. Not a horrible thing but things like app icons appear in low resolution and that’s just sloppy.

7.0

Overall, Tingz.Me is a fun little app to have. It won’t change your life and it doesn’t compare to the Google Play Store in most cases. However, with all the apps on the Play Store, it does get hard to find stuff you like once you’ve exhausted all the most popular options. It’s free to use with no in app purchases so it can’t hurt to try it out.

And now here are five Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week!


Ready Contact List Android appsReady Contact List

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Ready Contact List has been out for a couple of weeks but it seems to be growing in popularity by the moment. It’s a contact and dialer app that fuses card UI and a little Material Design which makes the app look really good. There is also a number of features you can get that you don’t see in regular contacts apps. It’s free to use with in app purchases.
Get it on Google Play


notifwidget android appsNotifWidget

[Price: $1.26]
NotifWidget a unique application that allows you to check your notifications almost anywhere.

Camera51 Android appsCamera51

[Price: Free]
Camera51 is a newer camera app and it’s aimed at people who are not very good at photography. The app uses a proprietary engine to help you aim your camera where it needs to be aimed to get everything you should need in a photo. This is also fairly useful for people who take selfies.

Get it on Google Play


SuperSU android appsSuperSU

[Price: Free / $2.49]
SuperSU got a huge update this last week to prepare itself for a lot of exciting stuff that’s coming up including Android L and Android TV. There is, of course, a huge list of other things including bug fixes, performance improvements, and architecture specific binaries for all version of Android.

Get it on Google Play
SuperSU Android apps


Dragon Quest II android appsDragon Quest II

[Price: $4.99]
A while back, the original Dragon Quest was re-released on Android by Square Enix and we figured it was only a matter of time before they started porting more. As per the norm, people who are huge fans of Square Enix games, jRPGs in general, or retro graphics will probably get a kick out of this. It takes place 100 years after the end of the first Dragon Quest so you should probably play that one first. It’s $5 in the Google Play Store which isn’t bad because this game is pretty long.
