McAfee SafeKey review

McAfee SafeKey can hold all of your passwords safely, but it takes a while to set up. Depending on how much you use McAfee products, you may have to sign up for multiple accounts just to access this app's features. That doesn't bode well for this program, especially when there are other easy-to-use, effective password managers available.

This program serves as a home for all of your passwords. It can log in for you on some Web sites, as well, and syncs to your desktop or tablet app if you have one. Your passwords are all held in … Read more

SpeedyPassword review

SpeedyPassword makes it easier than ever to manage secure passwords for virtually any Web site with a single Master Password. It doesn't store your passwords but hides and encodes them using military-grade encryption. You don't have to type in passwords, so keyloggers can't capture the keystrokes. Seamless browser integration is available for Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer 10+.

You'll need to be logged in as an administrator to add SpeedyPassword to a Windows PC (XP to 8). We installed SpeedyPassword's browser extension in Chrome. It's easy: Just click the big green bar labeled "… Read more

Review: Sharpen up your shooting skills in Extreme Shooting Adventure

Extreme Shooting Adventure isn't very challenging or innovative, but it is a relatively fun shooter. There is enough here to please most gun fans -- even if the game is really repetitive. If you like neverending shooting games, this one is worth playing.

This game gives you unlimited ammo to shoot down bottles, explosives, munitions crates, and more across a seemingly endless number of levels. You don't get to choose your weapon or choose the level you want to start with, though. Instead, the game starts you at the beginning and advances you to the next level the … Read more

Review: Type-To-Navigate for Mac allows for Web browsing without a mouse or trackpad

Type-To-Navigate for Mac offers you a fast way to surf the Web by typing any text included in a link you would ordinarily click on with a mouse. It's a Safari extension that comes with a handful of options, including a handy blacklist of sites. In terms of speed, the extension is snappy, facilitating even faster Web surfing.

Type-To-Navigate for Mac installs as an ordinary Safari extension, but there will be no new buttons visible on the toolbar. The moment you start typing on the keyboard, when not in a text field, you will notice the extension trying to … Read more

Review: Songify turns your humming or singing into a cool tune

Songify auto-tunes anything you say or sing into a song, but you can only enjoy your music through the app. Sharing and downloading the track can be a pain, too. Still, this app is quite unique and worth trying just to hear the cool effect.

This app turns any noise you make into a hip-hop, dance, or pop track. It's made by the folks behind Autotune The News -- to give you a better idea of the gist of the app. The app works surprisingly quickly, but it doesn't let you adjust your vocals or the finished song … Read more

Race through vibrant international vistas with cash to spare playing Asphalt 7

The hot trend right now in big name apps from top publishers like EA and Gameloft is freemium. The games are free, but the content is not. For casual gamers that want a nice diversion, it's a wonderful thing -- allowing you to try out otherwise grade-A games for free -- while hardcore gamers who want to unlock everything a game has to offer are often left between a rock and a very expensive hard place. Asphalt 7 Heat manages to toe the line between freemium micro transactions and solid game design as well as any racer currently out … Read more

GetCocoon doesn't live up to its promise

A lot of people don't realize that browsing the Web on your smartphone can be just as dangerous as browsing the Web on your PC. Your phone is just as susceptible to malware as your computer. GetCocoon is a browser for your phone that offers you a layer of protection. However, we found its performance spotty, and the lack of privacy options for unpaid members left a lot to be desired.

When getting started, you have the option of logging in with a username and password, or selecting the Browse Without Logging In option. We selected the latter option, … Read more
