TypeText review

TypeText gives you the ability to enter in lines of text that you type often and then have the program auto-type them with just a few taps. This is a great help if you find yourself typing out certain items over and over again.

Pros

Good functionality: With this program, you can enter in a list of terms, phrases, e-mail addresses, or anything else that you type out frequently, and then call that list up by pressing "CTRL+B" whenever you want to type any of them. Select the item you want from the list that pops up, … Read more

UnityPDF review

UnityPDF gives you the tools to combine multiple PDFs into one file, or to split a single PDF into multiple files, with just a few clicks. With multiple options for customization, this app can carry out just about any type of merging or division you need.

Pros

Splitting options: When you're dividing up a PDF with UnityPDF, you have the option of using a Quick Split, which turns each page of the original document into its own file, or specifying page numbers for each new file. This lets you control exactly where you want each part of an existing … Read more

Firefly GO Launcher Theme review

With its dainty icons and delicate design, Firefly GO Launcher Theme stands out as one of the prettiest fantasy-inspired themes in the Play Store. If Peter Pan in Neverland had a smartphone, this is the theme he'd be using.

Pros

Exquisite icons: Firefly GO Launcher Theme's 25 unique, leafy icons look spectacular. From the fancy green to the flourishes like dewdrops or ladybugs, these icons look like some of the best crafted ones we've ever seen on Android. They look especially great on a smartphone screen.

Graceful: Just like a fairy, this theme moves swiftly and smoothly, … Read more

EverClip review

Designed for the popular note-taking app Evernote, EverClip (Web Clipper) proves a handy app to have, but could do with some interface and accessibility improvements. Still, it remains one of the better Web clippers for Android.

Pros

Works: You can clip content either by saving text or graphics to the clipboard, or more conveniently, by sharing URLs to EverClip and then using the app's clumsy yet functional clipping frame to select what you want to save. While the process isn't as straightforward as it could have been if this app was a browser extension, it does work.

Clipboard … Read more

Descripto integrates with Skype to give you a platform for taking notes about all of your contacts, making it easy to keep track of who's who. Never get stuck in an awkward Skype conversation again with this handy app.

Pros

Smooth installation: In order to use this app, you have to have a Skype account and have the Skype app installed on your PC.

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 Combos review

AppGo calls Bubble Combo "a very classic bubble puzzle game," though the swiping motion and high-quality graphics make this up-to-date Android app fun and easy to play, too. Bubble Combo is free but ad-supported; it runs in Android 2.3.3 or higher and played nicely in Android 4.3.

Pros

Easy to play: The premise is basic: line up three or more of the same color balloons to pop them all, score points, and reshuffle the board.

Levels: Easy, Normal, and Hard levels keep Bubble Combo from becoming like cold bath water (we hate that!) and provide … Read more

Disk BoostUp for Mac review

Disk BoostUp for Mac only partially lives up to its claim of addressing sluggish performance, restoring responsiveness, and maintaining fast startup times. It's a useful but not indispensable app.

Pros

Eases the process of correcting permission conflicts: Disk BoostUp for Mac can fix permission problems in no time, requiring only a few clicks, and easing a process that otherwise requires several steps.

Light and easy to use: The installer weighs only 1.46MB. The application launches very quickly. All you need to do to put this app to work is click on the "Scan and Fix" button.… Read more

Light and fast: You don't need more than 1MB of space for this app. It is also snappy, although the loading speed of the app selections available depends on your … Read more
