Opera Mini Browser updated – we take a quick look

Posted by wicked April - 22 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

Opera Mini Browser received a huge update recently that seemed to change everything about the browser. The UI saw a significant revamp and more features were added such as gesture controls, new omnibar support, and even some data compression and data saving features were implemented. With all these changes, we figured it was worth taking a quick look!  It might as well be a whole new browser so we wanted to take a closer quick look.


Opera Mini review

Design

Opera Mini’s new design is both clean and functional although it does take a moment to get used to. The omnibar is at the top along with a plus symbol for adding bookmarks. The bottom houses the menu button (which is just the Opera logo), tab controls, a button to take you to the Speed Dial feature, and back and forward buttons.

Inside the menu, you’ll see your data savings but more on that in a minute. Below that you’ll see four buttons for history, find-in-page functionality, a share button, and a button to close the tab. You can also access your downloads and the app settings below that.

In the settings you’ll be able to change the app layout depending on your preferences, determine new tab behaviors, change text size, access full screen features, and some advanced features like cookies, text wrap, protocol, and network test to see if you have a functioning connection. For power users, and others that like to have more control over their browsing experience, these features are a boon for control and functionality.

Overall, I found the experience to be quite nice and refreshing, as Opera puts a lot of controls in a relatively small amount of space and made them large and noticeable enough to find easily. That’s something that other browsers could definitely learn from.


Opera Mini review

Functionality

Along with the app comes a data compression feature that attempts to minimize how much data you use when you browse the web. In many cases, it’s highly functional and we managed to use about 10% of the data we would have using other browsers. If you’re one to want to conserve data consumption on mobile, or for other reasons, this is something to definitely take note of.

Opera’s data compression system is very aggressive which should help those who live in areas with slower network connections. The compression will also almost certainly help those on capped data plans to save more data.

The Speed Dial feature has been present in Opera’s main browser for a while and Opera Mini is no different. The Speed Dial allows you to set up sites you go to frequently so you can get there very quickly. You can also find your bookmarks, sites you saved for offline reading, and even a somewhat customizable news feed to keep you caught up on whatever kind of news you enjoy.

During our testing, we visited 50 websites in total and all 50 of them loaded relatively quickly. A few had some graphical and text formatting errors that are likely a result of Opera’s data compression but at no point did the websites cease to function as they should. A few larger websites may load more slowly than expected but there were very few instances where it was so slow that it was annoying.

Also included in the latest update is private tabs similar to Google’s incognito mode. You can also swipe to close tabs, swipe to delete bookmarks, and swipe up to search.


Overall

Pros:

  • The new UI revamp is clean and functional.
  • Dedicated tablet layout and two phone layouts that you can switch between.
  • Data compression saves you a lot of data.
  • Bookmarks can be synced across devices including computers.
  • Speed Dial is as useful as ever.
  • New private tab lets you browse without saving cookies or web history.

Cons:

  • Occasional graphical glitches on websites, likely from data compression.
  • likely from data compression.
  • Some sites may load slowly.
  • There doesn’t appear to be a way to turn data compression off.

Overall, this is a positive update for Opera Mini. It brings a lot of the features and looks from Opera’s full fledged browser and the performance is still very good. The data compression is fantastic and very helpful for those with limited data plans and connections. With the new features and looks, Opera Mini is now brought up to date with current browser options which is only a good thing. If you want to check it out, click the button!

14 best Android apps for artists

Posted by wicked April - 21 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Best Android apps for Artists
Being an artist is a lot of fun. You can choose your medium and most platforms have support for most mediums. It’s also one of the few hobbies and jobs out there where you can express yourself how you want. Believe it or not, you can produce art from your Android devices with these great Android apps for artists.


adobe lightroom mobilebest Android apps for artistsAdobe Lightroom Mobile

[Price: Free (requires Creative Cloud subscription)]
There are many photographers who use Adobe Lightroom and now you can also use it on mobile. Adobe’s Lightroom app acts as an extension of the desktop version which means you’ll also need the Creative Cloud version of Lightroom to fully enjoy the mobile experience. That’s sure to chase some people away, but if you happen to use that software already, the app will let you edit raw files along with files from your Android device’s gallery. You can also use a limited number of Lightroom tools to enhance images. You can also sync everything to your desktop so you can use the Lightroom desktop application too.
Get it on Google Play
adobe lightroom mobile best Android apps for artists


Photoshop Touch best android apps for artistsAdobe Photoshop Touch

[Price: $4.99]
Adobe does have a Photoshop option for Android as well. Much like their Lightroom mobile app, the Photoshop app can’t hold a candle to the desktop version. However, it does contain some tools and effects that can enhance images to your liking. The app comes with painting effects, filter brushes, text effects (such as drop shadows), and syncing to the desktop version for heavier editing if need be. It also comes with a bit of Creative Cloud storage (2GB).
Get it on Google Play

artflow Best Android apps for ArtistsArtFlow

[Price: Free / $4.99]
ArtFlow is a paint application that lets you, well, paint. It features a GPU-accelerated paint engine with over 70 brushes and tools, multiple layers, PSD/PNG/JPEG support, NVIDIA DirectStylus support, and many, many more features. It’s a very powerful paint app with a lot of features that you can use for free but you’ll have to pay to use everything. There is also Samsung S-Pen support for those rocking Samsung devices. It’s a lot of fun and worth a shot for painters.
Get it on Google Play


autodesk sketchbook best android apps for artistsAutodesk Sketchbook

[Price: Free / $3.99]
Autodesk is a well-known supplier of creative software and their Sketchbook Pro app is a long time mainstay in the artistic community. It boasts professional grade features including full-screen work spaces, up to 2500% zoom, more than 10 brushes, Dropbox support, and more features are unlockable by creating a (free) SketchBook account. If you pay for premium, you’ll have over 100 brushes, pencils, pens, markers, etc, layers, more advanced settings, and far more extra stuff. It’s about as close to a pro art tool as you can find on Android and it’s worth a shot.
Get it on Google Play


clover paint best android apps for artistsClover Paint

[Price: $7.56]
Clover Paint is another app that self-identifies as a professional grade drawing app. It features a rather complex layering system, plenty of drawing implements, selection tools, transform tools, and even custom hot keys. The only (potentially) negative thing about Clover Paint is the admittedly difficult learning curve. However, once you learn how to make your way around the app, it’s a fantastic and deep art app that has the potential to help you draw some excellent stuff.
Get it on Google Play


best android apps for artists handy art reference toolHandy Art Reference Tool

[Price: $2.99 with in app purchases]
Okay, admittedly this one is a little bit niche. Handy Art Reference Tool is a tool that artists, colorists, and other artistic ventures can use to draw hands. The app shows you a hand (in various positions). You can then rotate the hand and change the lighting to get the proper lighting and shadows. This is useful because hands are admittedly difficult to draw and this helps you plan and reference a hand for you to draw. It’s been recommended by Tony Moore, co-creator of The Walking Dead, ImagineFX, and more professionals and $2.99 isn’t expensive for a good hand reference tool.
Get it on Google Play


layerpaint best android apps for artistsLayerPaint and LayerPaint HD

[Price: $2.00 / $8.00]
LayerPaint and LayerPaint HD are a couple of semi-pro animation applications. LayerPaint is for phones while LayerPaint HD is specifically made for tablets with 7-inch screens or larger. Both versions have various tools and brushes to create amazing pieces of art although this seems to be more of an animation app than something for painters. The tablet version comes with some additional features including support for NVIDIA and Samsung styluses. Some people have said that the phone version still isn’t great on the phone, but it’s almost universally enjoyed on tablets.
Get it on Google Play


nvidia dabbler best android apps for artistsNVIDIA Dabbler

[Price: Free]
NVIDIA Dabbler is the stock painting app that comes on the NVIDIA Shield Tablet. It has direct support for its stylus and includes a decent selection of brushes, canvas types, and more. It has some fun effects like realistic watercolor and oil painting. It also has some unique features like the ability to record sessions and share/save for future reference. It doesn’t have the sheer feature set that you’ll find in something like LayerPaint, Clover Paint, or SketchBook Pro, but it’s good for hobbyists and those who own an NVIDIA Shield Tablet.
Get it on Google Play


pose tool 3d best android apps for artistsPose Tool 3D (3 total apps)

[Price: $6.99 each]
The Pose Tool 3D collection is a reference tool that artists can use to draw various things. The regular Pose Tool 3D focuses on the human body. You can contort, change, and move things around to get the pose you want so you can draw it in your comic, drawing, etc. The other two are for Manga (anime and manga style character poses) and Horse (for horses). The apps for a little expensive but they are considered the best 3D reference tools on Android and we agree with that assessment. If you draw, these are worth a second look.
Get it on Google Play


roughanimator best Android apps for artistsRoughAnimator

[Price: $2.99]
RoughAnimator is a long time favorite here at Android Authority and it even made our list of the best indie apps of 2014. This is an animation application where you can draw each frame and then combine the frames to create a cartoon. Drawings can be as complex or as a simple as you want. You have unlimited layers, onion skinning, and even the ability to import audio so you can incorporate voice overs. It also comes with S-Pen support (and other pressure sensitive styluses and devices) and you can export to QuickTime video, GIF, or image sequence. It’s not 100% pro grade, but it’s definitely more than good enough for most people.
Get it on Google Play


silk paints drawing best android apps for artistsSilk paints drawing

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Silk paints drawing isn’t a professional grade art app like others, but it’s still a lot of fun for those who want to do something a little bit different. It has direct support with Samsung’s S-Pen and PEN.UP apps so this is best suited for those running a Touchwiz device. Some other fun features include the ability to create, animate, and set your own live wallpaper, multiple brushes, and more. As stated, this isn’t professional grade, but it’s still fun to get a project started if you want something a little less intense.
Get it on Google Play


sketchbook express best android apps for artistsSketchBook Express

[Price: Free]
SketchBook Express is the totally free version of Autodesk’s SketchBook Pro. As such, it has some of the features of the full version including up to 2500% zoom, layer support (3 layers), 15 preset brushes, and more. Obviously, the pro version is better but this one is totally free to use. That makes it not just a good app for artists on a budget who don’t need all the features, but also a good way to preview the software in case you’re thinking of buying it.
Get it on Google Play


sketcher pro best android apps for artistsSketcher PRO

[Price: $0.99 (on sale)]
Sketcher Pro is another sketch app for those artists with a light wallet. It doesn’t have the gargantuan number of features that others have, but there is still a decent selection. There are 12 brushes, basic tools, multiple modes, and you can even order physical prints of your artwork sent to your door for an extra cost. It’s a tad more simple than most but completes well with something like SketchBook Express. It’s on sale at the time of this writing so the $0.99 cost will go up after a while.
Get it on Google Play
sketcher pro best android apps for artists


sketch master best android apps for artistsSketch Master

[Price: Free]
Last on our list is also one of the few free options and it’s called Sketch Master. Much like the other free selections, Sketch Master is a bit limited but still has seven brushes, unlimited layers, various editing tools, import from various places, and various color options. Pros will likely need something more complex and deep but semi pros and hobbyists should see enough here to keep them engaged.
