Clipper review

Clipper promises to help users create and share attractive videos, offering an array of musical choices and effects for customizing your cinematic masterpiece. There's a lot to like about Clipper, but it falls short in one very important way: it doesn't always save your finished videos.

Pros

Attractive, intuitive interface: Clipper launches with a tutorial that walks you through the process of creating a video; but even without this, the app would be pretty easy to figure out. The interface is sleek and easy to navigate, allowing you to create and preview great-looking videos in a matter of … Read more

Invoice Maker review

Invoice Maker works as advertised, enabling you to create invoices and save them as PDFs or e-mail them, but comes with a few annoying accessibility issues that make it clumsy, slow, and at times annoying. Although in theory it supports all countries, it really feels like it's made for US users only.

Pros

Comprehensive: With Invoice Maker you can add extensive company, client, product, and invoice information, everything from addresses to product descriptions. Editing existing invoices or adding subcategories to products is also possible, making this app handy for small businesses.

Easy to use: Even if you're not … Read more

AutoKrypt for Mac review

AutoKrypt for Mac continuously runs a script in the background, enabling you to automate various tasks such as document encryption and decryption, the moving and archiving of files, as well as monitoring directory activities. It also features several wizards, which automate commonly set-up rules. This premium software performs well, overall, but due to its multiplatform nature, doesn't completely fit in with the rest of the OS.

AutoKrypt for Mac features a cluttered main interface with nested tabs and two toolbars. It requires Java and automatically launches a second process for the scheduling service, placing an additional generic Java icon … Read more

Video Player review

Video Player doesn't offer much over Android's default player, let alone other advanced video players you can find. Its better features are marred by its overreliance on ads and how difficult it is to set up. That makes it hard to recommend in a world of fantastic free players like VLC and MX Player.

This app lets you play most video formats around, but you have to download a second app just to get it to play anything. Once you download that small add-on, the video player works fine, but it doesn't offer much more than a … Read more
