Honestly, from a design perspective, we are just loving all the little nuances. Control Center went from a slab of monochrome to having Apple Watch-esque icon colors; Notification Center is lighter gray; wallpaper isn’t blurred when swiping to Proactive, etc.But, iOS 10 is missing some previous features and has a few obvious bugs that they are going to fix. We think people are going to like the new app. We just don’t like how bulky it is. The only advantage for the bulkiness is on the music player and on the lock screen. Earlier, it was impossible to read the artist and album from the lock screen. Besides all these here are some unique and amazing features of iOS 10 that you would love:
- As someone who has to use VoIP apps for work, the new API seems pretty cool: Apps can now extend themselves into more places, including the lock screen to look like a phone call of it’s a VoIP app. It’ll look like you’re getting a call with an option to maybe “slide to answer” or something instead of looking like a push notification that is asking you to open the app to answer the call. This is a part of Apple’s initiative to open up more parts of the UI to developers in a secure, consistent, and stable method, including letting apps use Siri, and extend into maps, messages, notifications, etc
- You would love Home shortcuts in Control Center – very quick way to change light settings.
- Widgets still available in Notification Center when in apps : Keep widgets in NC in all instances (after all, why not?), and let the user decide which appears first: widgets or notifications.
- Home button always takes you to an icon page, never the widget page.
- Seriously, they’re a ton easier and much more useful!
- HomeKit scenes and accessories in the new Home app.
- You don’t see auto information until you authenticate by putting a finger on the TouchID sensor without pressing the home button. So some random person can’t just pick up your phone and see data from your widgets.
- The one thing that you would notice is that the wake alarm seems a bit buggy. Apple Music’s UI is buggy too. Nothing that really impacts usability, though.
- Fullscreen GIF playback doesn’t stop music now either!
- iMessage is surprisingly quick. Predictive/adaptive text is spot on.
- You would love the swipe left to open camera from lock screen. Swiping up from the lock screen was hit or miss. This could probably be your favorite feature. It’s so minor but it will come handy on a backpacking trip or any short trip.
- The maps interface has really grown up and you would like it. Our only complaint is we feel the search is lacking and they need to improve updating the data.
- Definitely your most USED feature will be the text from the lock screen 3D touch.
- Clear all notifications and clear all tabs in Safari.
- You may find the new bedtime feature in the clock app to be an awesome addition.It covers the whole screen when it’s time to go to bed.
- All of the added 3D Touch integration. 3D Touch integration works now in so many new places, and interacts very well with the new widget/notification objects. You would also like how new notification response that comes from 3D Touch works, and that hitting home just closes the notification.
Google Opinion Rewards for Android: Cannot emphasize enough, this app is awesome!It’s based on how you answer the questions. It creates a profile about you and if you fit into one demographic over another, your demographic might just serve no use for Google.If you recall, small business owners, family providers, and most likely higher demands tends to be with any demographic that has a high consumer. Whereas students, young adults or entry level workers are pretty much of no interest to surveyors.We would also warn against lying as Google does put out fake surveys designed to detect, well liars! We believe the penalty for being caught removes you from the program.Disclaimer : We found that it depends on the accuracy, location, and the frequency of your responses. People in Manhattan are more likely to get questions than those in the midst of nowhere. Also, from time to time they make sure whether you answer bs or not by putting in some nonexistent answer choices.Continue reading
1.The Walking Dead – if you’re interested in emotionally story driven games at all, get this on whatever platform you can play it on. Never before has a video game affected me so emotionally as this one did.2. Frozen Synapse – more multiplayer turn based tactics – except this time turns play out simultaneously. If you’re familiar with the old Maxis classic Robosport, that is exactly what this game is, it’s nearly identical in every way.3. Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP – sort of a modern take on classic point and click games. Amazing Highly recommend this one.4. New World Colony – multiplayer turn based strategy game similar to Catan. This is an excellent game if you think you can reliably get a few friends to play with you. If not, you might want to pass on this one.5. Spaceward Ho! – turn based strategy. Build up a massive interstellar fleet of shark headed dreadnaughts and crush your opponents. Or squids. You can also build squids. And eat your opponents. Or your own people. Hee-ya!6. FTL: Faster Than Light – sort of a rogue-like / adventure game. Lots of resource management, unforgiving difficult gameplay, just all around crazy fun. Outfit your starship, recruit a diverse crew, traverse the galaxy and stop the rebels!7. Out There – conceptually this is sort of similar to FTL but it focuses much more on the exploration aspect as opposed to the combat aspect of FTL. It’s probably safe to say that if you like FTL there’s a reasonably good chance you may enjoy this as well.8. Wayward Souls – procedurally generated levels wrapped around an action-adventure rogue-like that sort of plays like the bastard child of an old school JRPG and Gauntlet. It’s as awesome as it sounds.9. Shadowrun Returns – turn-based tactical RPG set in a cyberpunk world with a great noir storyline. Seriously one of the best games iOS has to offer. Fair warning: there are numerous reports of this game not playing nice with older model iPads (lots of crashes and lost progress) – I’ve been playing on an iPad 3 (“new iPad”) without incident, but earlier models apparently have a hard time with this game.10. Oceanhorn – this one is sort of like Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. It’s one of those rare “AAA” experiences to be found on iOS (XCOM being another). It plays well, looks great, gets frequent updates from the developer (recent 60fps update), and has absolutely no IAPs. This is definitely one worthy of supporting.11. The Wolf Among Us – by the same developers as The Walking Dead (first one on this list), this game plays very similarly but takes place in a very different world. I haven’t yet completed the first season, but I’m far enough along that I feel confident recommending this to anyone that enjoyed The Walking Dead season 1.12. XCOM: Enemy Unknown – more turn based tactics. This one is a pretty faithful port of the console / PC game. It’s a beautifully done port too – it makes the transition to tablet controls flawlessly. I highly recommend this one.13. Skulls of the Shogun – turn-based strategy / tactics supporting both single and multiplayer. This is a really great game polished to near perfection. I highly recommend this one to anyone even remotely interested.14. Super KO Boxing 2 – the next best thing to Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!! This is basically a modern take / knock-off of the old Nintendo classic. It looks great and plays very well on a touch screen, I’m actually surprised there aren’t more clones of this in the App Store.15. Sword of Fargoal – classic retro rogue-like with procedurally generated dungeons. Very simple yet endlessly entertaining game.Based on the length of the experience rather than the depth and quality of said experience I would advise you to stay clear of this one as it can be completed start to finish in two hours (under an hour even, if you’re speedy).

A10 must have apps for android and iOS users :I’m only talking about those apps which you must install in your android and iOS mobile device both :
- FastCustomer : Reason why i mentioned this app is, it calls customer service, navigates the phone tree, saves a place in line and then calls you when there’s a real person to talk to. It’s a must have app if you are a Businessman or if you don’t have free time to attend every calls thinking it might be important.
- Zombies, Run!: Best workout app ever. It is the only thing I’ve ever used that actually motivates me to get out and run. It’s basically an audio storybook that tracks your running pace. You join a post-apocalyptic township and go on missions to gather intel and supplies. The app sees how fast you’re running and during certain times, zombies chase you and you need to run a certain speed to escape. Also uses your playlists to interject music between story broadcasts. Love this thing!
- OutOfMilk : Surprised it’s not been mentioned anywhere. My girlfriend and I use a shopping list app called OutOfMilk forAndroid, or for iOS. We add items to our shopping list as we run out, grouped by shop, and it syncs across our phones. So, if either of us happen to be passing the shops, we can just pop in and get everything, and tick everything off and they disappear on both devices. No more issues with trying to remember which brand of this or that to get (you can add additional details, and it remembers them when you put the item on the list again), and no more both buying the same thing on our way home. Cool, Eh? Check OurGroceries app too. 😉
- IFTTT (If This Then That) : It’s an interesting app that uses triggers online to automatically take action for you. Huge functionality, A couple examples are that I have mine setup to save any picture I’m tagged in on Facebook into a Dropbox folder. Takes my phone off silent when I connect to my home WiFi. Backs up contacts into a Google docs spreadsheet. Really useful, and I love that it does busy work for me.
- GasBuddy : Let’s you know gas prices in the area and when they are going up! Iuse this a lot for road trips. Great for figuring out if I should fill up now or wait a couple more exits.
- Period Tracker : For the ladies – period tracker. You can have the lite version, and it’s awesome. You tap a button when your period starts, and you can input symptoms, heaviness of flow, etc. You tap the button again when your period ends, and it pulls up graphs, charts, and a calendar that track your period. It’ll even give you a day’s notice the day before. No more counting days. The lite version is free. There’s a lite and deluxe version of the app.
- Safe Trek : Turn the app on whenever you don’t feel safe. You keep your finger on the button the entire time until you’re at a safe location. As soon as you take your finger off you have about 5 seconds to enter your 4 digit password. If you don’t enter it then the police are called and given your location. It’s amazing! It’s available for $2 but for some reason it was free when I downloaded it, so it may go on sale sometimes. Everyone must have it.
- SwiftKey : Basically a highly intelligent keyboard which predicts what words you would like to type next, based on your previous behavior.
- Sleep Cycle : I didn’t believe in it either until I started using it, but itactually changed the way I sleep, and resulted in me feeling way better rested.
- Google Translate : Type to translate 90 languages. Use your camera to translate text instantly in 26 languages. Two-way automatic speech translation in 40 languages. Draw with your finger as a keyboard alternative. You can download language packs for when you’re traveling, or if your connection is expensive or slow. You can take pictures of text for higher-quality translations or for languages not supported by instant camera translation.
Well, you must be familiar with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Sway – Office goes mobile and it being touch friendly gives it a slight edge if you’re a light weight user that just has to edit some documents or do stuff on the go. But here are the list of top 8 awesome must have apps for office work that you you must know and ease off some burdens of your office works :-Continue reading
