Calendar-7 review

Calendar-7 is an app designed to help you keep track of important dates, tasks, and appointments through a standard calendar interface. The app appears in the lower right-hand corner of your screen with a split interface featuring a month below and an image above, just like a wall calendar.

Pros

Multiple display options: You can customize the display of this app to show one, two, or 12 months at a time. You can also turn off the image displayed with each month, and the calendar shows both the current time and the year displayed in addition to the days of … Read more

AutoTypewriter review

AutoTypewriter lets you assign certain blocks of text to hot keys, so you can fill in items you type out often with just a few taps. Select your own hot keys, and type in custom lines of text, and then let the program do the rest.

Pros

Complete customization: This app gives you the power to select the keys you'd like to use for each often-used item of text. You can select from the drop-down menu, or just type in the key you want. Handy check boxes also let you determine whether you want to press "Alt," &… Read more

Bubble Shoot Legend review

Bubble Shoot Legend combines two of our favorite arcade game schemes, shooting stuff and popping bubbles, in one free Android game. Grouping three or more bubbles of the same color causes them to drop, and the bubbles behind them, too, which occasionally leads to a chain reaction and big score. If you don't drop enough bubbles before the descending mass hits bottom, you lose the round.

Pros

Fast and fun: You can shift the color of the shooting bubble; the quicker you recognize the color change, the quicker you can target bubbles.

Bank shots: You can (and sometimes must) … Read more

Face2Face for Mac review

Face2Face for Mac can look up a specific image on Google+, Flickr, and Facebook and link it to the corresponding contact in your Mail.app. It installs as a plugin for the default Mac mail app, with which it integrates seamlessly. Overall, it's fast and easy to use.

While the Face2Face installation process lacks information about how to configure the app, a guided configuration shows you the main features and setup once you open Mail. The app has the option to show the contact icon on every listed e-mail and lets you choose what social networks the images are … Read more

EasyRaterLite for iTunes for Mac review

EasyRaterLite for iTunes for Mac lets you rate the songs, which you are listening to with no need to bring iTunes to the front. It gives you a small and unobtrusive menu bar icon that displays the current track's rating or a question mark if the track has no rating, and offers you a faster way to rate songs. Nothing more, nothing less.

After a drag-and-drop install, EasyRaterLite for iTunes for Mac shows you the rating of the song currently playing in iTunes as well as basic track info such as album name, cover art, artist, song name, and … Read more

DayCalc for Mac review

DayCalc for Mac calculates the number of days between two dates and then shows you the weekdays, weekend days, and the total count of days. It's a small utility that can be helpful if you want to check how far away a specific event is.

DayCalc's installation requires you to run an installer, something odd for a basic application such as a calculator. It has a basic interface, not too appealing but easy to figure out, and almost no options beside its main function. It doesn't have any preferences to change, no alarm or dynamic countdown to … Read more

TagoMan for Mac helps you easily access files even if you don't have the time to meticulously place them in their appropriate folders. With this app you can tag not only files, but also e-mails, notes, and links.

Pros

Familiar and intuitive user interface: TagoMan for Mac somewhat resembles the Finder window of Mac, so you should easily figure out how to use it.

Tagging opens a variety of usage possibilities: Through tags, TagoMan for Mac can serve as your note manager. The application has its own note-taking feature but it can manage other notes by tagging them. It … Read more

Insta Collage Photo Frame review

Insta Collage Photo Frame is an easy-to-use app that provides users with a variety of different frames for creating photo collages. We really wanted to like this app -- there's a lot to like about it -- but its intrusive advertising ruins the user experience.

Pros

Lots of options: Insta Collage Photo Frame offers a wide variety of frames arranged in categories by aspect ratio. There are 48 frames in all, but each of these basic frames can be customized with colors, patterns, and shapes, giving users many options to choose from.

Easy collage creation: Once you've chosen … Read more

iBlendy2 review

iBlendy2 is a photo editing app that lets you combine and blend two images together. Although the app works, the interface is difficult to navigate, and we weren't particularly impressed with the results.

Pros

Plenty of options: iBlendy2 contains a large number of blending masks and filters, as well as tools that let you add text, adjust image transparency, and more. We're not able to tell you in any detail exactly what that "more" consists of, however, because the app's features are hidden in a series of poorly-organized menus that make the app a guessing … Read more
