Best Android/iOS Online Shopping App 2018!

AliExpress is a very cool shopping app that you can get to your phone. The cool thing with this company behind the app is that it truly has everything!

Some of the main categories that exist are clothes for men and women, beauty and health products, cellphones, computers, consumer electronics, furniture, home appliances, toys, shoes and watches! As you can see this app is a little bit like the Amazon app! They truly cover most of the key areas that people find the most exciting.

Another very nice thing is that they offer coins and coupons to get amazing deals. First you have a daily coin feature that reward you for every check in. Then you have the options of being able to win coins by playing fun games. These coins can then later be traded to products or coupons.

There is also a freebies section where you can get free product to then be able to review. Although at the moment it looks a bit silly since there is thousands of requests per item and only a few units being sent out so you will probably not win but at least it’s nice they give you the opportunity to win.

There is also a zone in AliExpress  app which is being called the Fan Zone where you can see influencers and their favourite products! This is great if you are a blogger and want to get on-board to get free review samples! They have a section called star bloggers where you can end up in if you do a great job!

Another amazing thing that you can do is image search. So you can take a photo of something and it will search the store for that product. I tried with my cup and it worked! This is amazing since it makes shopping so much more fun and easy!

Another thing that I find very cool with this AliExpress shopping app is the share feature. After you made a first order then you can use share feature which allows you to share other items and get over 10% commission! This is way higher than many other websites will give you! And you can see the click and order stats right in the app!

When you open up the app there is also a section that is called Flash Deals. This let’s you quickly see great products where the price has been cut down!

There is also an inspiration section in these categories: Tech, Fashion, Kids, Beauty, Home and Hair. Great if you are bored but want to buy something but needs to be inspired first.

The key feature that I like with this app is that they are creating a community aspect around shopping so they are making it more engaging and social. You can clearly see how they have put work into this app. You can see that they care about making a great experience.

Another thing that is nice is how it keeps loading up new products if you keep scrolling down. Just as YouTube does! So no need for any complicated search. Eventually with Machine Learning and AI it will probably just keep getting more intelligent to find out what you may want for the moment. You also have a built in message feature and you can leave app suggestions!

Another feature is wish list. Just as Amazon have. If there is a cool product that you want to save for later just use this! What do you think about the AliExpress shopping app? It’s my new favourite shopping app!

Top 1 Android Game April 2018 Samsung Galaxy S8 Gameplay Review!

1LINE is currently the most downloaded Android Play Store game. This is a puzzle game. You draw 1 line and you need to connect all the dots with it.

This game is already a bit hard at the beginning. Just like other puzzle games this requires some thinking. Other games like Angry Birds is a bit easier to get into since you only aim and shoot. This requires thinking. Surely this will improve your brain skills when it comes to coming up with solutions quick.

The amount of levels in 1LINE that exist are 10 but they also included 500 stages in total. You can also get hints for how to clear various stages. This is good if you feel that the game is too difficult. Then you have some special lines that will make you having to use your imagination to solve the puzzle!

The shapes the stages comes in is a bit fascinating. It’s very creative I would say. The graphics in the game is also great looking. The sound in the background is also very relaxing. Just as other Android games this one have a built in leaderboard. They also have a recommend section where they show you other awesome apps that are very similar that you may be interested in.

People in the comment section say that 1LINE is a quite addictive experience. Games like this reminds me a little bit about AdVenture Capitalist. Which also is very addicting.

Games will just improve as we move further into the future. And people will have a harder time to try to stay away from them. But we are also now going to implement cryptocurrency in new games which means you will be able to earn currency that you later could go trade to Fiat currency.

I’m really looking forward to see what will happen with games in the future especially in the virtual reality space.

New VLC Video App Updated For iPhone X!

VLC is updating their iOS app so that you can watch 4K videos if you have the latest iPhone X! This latest release is version 2.8.6 and it doesn’t just add support for 4K with HEVC but it also comes with a tweaked user interface that fits the latest iPhone better.

Some bug fixes have been added and a app termination issue that was on when it was running on iOS 7 and iOS 8.

This free VLC app is much better than the more controlled and locked iTunes alternative for movie watching. With VLC you get more options to sync videos from various cloud sources like OneDrive, Box, iCloud Drive, DropBox and more.

And then in terms of streaming you get other nice options as stream over SMB, FTP, UPnP or DLNA. You also get nice support for subtitles, playback speed control and multi-track audio. This app also comes with the regular orange theme which we are so familiar with when it comes to VLC. I personally use VLC when I am streaming videos on my MacBook Pro. It’s much better than Quicktime because you can move the video around much better, better file support, better subtitles and a bunch of other great options as sync audio or tweak little things.

This app is also designed to work on both iPhone and iPad. It’s an app made by a company that is being called VideoLAN. Only 80MB in file size. And as we know with iTunes apps is that they always are quality tested. With Android it’s usually a bit worse quality control but I bet Google is working on making improvements in that regard. But the good with Android is that you have more app alternatives. And usually a bit easier when it comes to streaming when you do it on Android.

Microsoft Is Releasing a New Launcher For Android Smartphones!

Microsoft is launching a launcher for Android smartphones. In case you didn’t know the good thing with Android is your freedom ability to customize the OS experience. This is something you can’t do with iPhones or iOS 11. Apple wants to control the whole experience. That’s why Microsoft only is releasing a launcher for Android and not iOS.

Some famous launchers currently for Android are Nova, Google Now, CM, XOS and Apex. Let’s see what this new Microsoft Launcher brings you.

The main feature is that your recent photos, documents and more can be continued on your PC. So this is mainly great if you are a big fan of Windows products and use Windows 10 a lot on a daily basis and takes lots of photos and need an easy way to transfer them over to your PC.

On the home screen you can also do other things like put icons on your favourite people to access them quickly. The main thing in this launcher is “The Feed” where you can swipe to the right to see important events, top news, recent activities, favourite people and most frequently used apps.

The core good things here I see is recent activity and used apps that could be helpful. But this news thing I have always found to be kind of stressful to having to see world news that usually try to rely on shock stories to get you to react. I hope you can disable this function. I would love if it worked like an RSS reader where you could customize the feed exactly the way you want it. Just like Feedly is doing.

The cool thing Microsoft gives in this launcher is the ability to customize things. Colors and Theme and some other tweaks. It looks like the UI looks better than what I have seen from Windows 10 so maybe it will be great.

The problem with Microsoft can be that they usually aren’t experts at great design. Windows 10 I find is they use two themes one is the new tablet theme where they use lots of focus on making it “look cool” but it just gets more complicated.

The settings are in two areas one with new theme and one section with old theme. It’s not having Harmony in design like iOS and Mac products have. Windows 7 was the best designed Windows they should have sticked with that UI. But I think they panicked when they saw they missed out on phones and now they try to make up for it.

I am sure this launcher can be great! Microsoft actually had an Android launcher already called Arrow. But now they are renaming that to Microsoft Launcher. I really hope Microsoft can come back because they can do real great stuff. But I feel they are in a decline. Let’s see how they do in the future!

Earth HD Deluxe Edition Samsung Galaxy S8 Android App Review!

Audio Version:

Today I want to write a review on an Android app called Earth HD Deluxe Edition. It will display the earth on your Android phone! Either on the lock screen of the device or just as a wallpaper. Depending on what phone you have.

When you swipe across the Home screen or Up/Down the Earth will start to spin around and move.

Inside the settings you can tweak many things. For example you can change the camera mode to Linear, Orbit, Fixed or Free.

With Orbit it only goes to the side not Up and Down.

With Fixed the earth still spins but it doesn’t move around more when you swipe your fingers on the screen.

You can also rotate the camera and have it slowly rotate around the earth. And you can select the speed on that option. You can also position the earth at the center if you want or any other custom position. They have added some cool theme’s you can switch between. Classic, Realistic, Future, Post-apocalyptic and Frozen earth!

To be honest I loved the classic the most. And then the Frozen Earth. Post-apocalyptic looked depressing. Realistic is a bit warmer in colors but reminds about classic. But I enjoy the classic more for it’s lighter softer colors. The texture I wish it could be a little bit higher graphics when you have camera distance normal or closer. A “little further” mode looks great. But would be amazing if higher textures was available for the closeups. Maybe in a few years with the Samsung Galaxy S9!

You can also switch the earth’s rotation speed. I think that with slow speed here it looks more realistic and makes you calm and peaceful when looking at. Here is the most amazing part with this app! It allows you to focus on satellites and still have the beautiful earth in the background! So you have two options here. Either Satellite Space Station V or Space Station V-II.

Both are super beautiful but I like the first one the most. It is a little bit smaller! And has cool rings! You can also add a realistic earth position. That will line it up depending on the current date. And you also have the option to add the moon!

If you feel the need to save battery life then you can change the FPS speed of this live wallpaper. FPS limit options are: 5 FPS, 15 FPS, 30 FPS, 60 FPS and Maximum!

Overall I really love this app a great developer with tons of other amazing apps. I checked out their Solar System HD Deluxe Live Wallpaper. Which is a mind-blowing app as well. Especially if you want more planets and Starfields to see and choose from!

Let me know in the comment section down below if you want me to check out another cool app that you know about!

Other apps from same developer are Into the Void, Zombie City Defense, Deep Galaxies HD, Snow HD Deluxe. I’m sure that I am going to check out many of them in the future. Because of the quality put into the apps.

While using this app on Samsung Galaxy S8 you may want to disable Bixby that’s available on home screen if you scroll a lot to the left side. Because that can get annoying. To disable Bixby hold in on an empty area of your home screen and go to the left and in the corner you can turn off the Bixby page.

Something that also is super cool with this app is how the earth is 50% dark so very realistic when you spin it around. If you spin to the dark side then you will be able to see the sun from far away. With it’s amazing sunlight it looks very realistic.

You can also see on the dark side of the earth some places where there is still light going on. As you know with large cities they have lots of lamps so you can see it from space! How magical effect it creates!

If you have the earth enabled to move when you swipe up then it will move when you enter the app drawer on the S8 which has the shortcut of swiping up on the home screen. It’s interesting because even inside the app drawer if you swipe the earth will still move. If you swipe on the lock screen then it doesn’t seem to move.

With the Solar System live wallpaper app from same developer that app was using your gyroscope to move things around while moving the phone. This app does not have that gyroscope support.

How could this app be improved if we play with that idea? Well first I think in it’s themes I see ton’s of potential over there. With adding maybe 30 cool themes in various colors and effects it would be extremely interesting. Because people truly love special premium themes that nobody else is using. Also to be able to maybe have more satellites would be extremely interesting.

Maybe be able to see an Elon Musk Mars spaceship, That would be so epic! Or see astronauts in space working on a space platform! There are many ideas and things you can do here. But I also believe that the live wallpaper is a bit limited by Android OS in what you can do more in depth.

But I am impressed with the latest versions of Android it’s premium speed. When the first iPhone came out in 2007 it was truly amazing and Android was a joke. Android was still a joke 2010 but with dual-core processors by 2011 thing’s started to shift and Android became interesting.

And finally these days to be able to use live wallpapers like this is perfect! Something that Apple gadgets cannot use if they don’t jailbreak.

It becomes clear to me that in the future we will be able to do even more amazing customize options with our phones. To make them truly stand out. This is the power of Android.

Thanks for reading!

Best Regards,

Adrian
