GO Multiple Wallpaper review

Go Multiple Wallpaper enables you to set up a unique wallpaper for each of your screens, offering nine beautiful nature-inspired wallpapers, as well as the option to choose your own custom images. Transitions can't be customized and occasionally overlap and lag, especially if you flip through screens quickly.

To use Go Multiple Wallpaper you need a third-party home screen launcher, preferably GoLauncherEx. After a quick installation, you are taken to the wallpaper customization screen. Initially there … Read more

Review: Email Multiple Photos and Videos attaches multiple images/videos to e-mails

Email Multiple Photos and Videos is an easy-to-use app that allows you to attach more than one image or video to your e-mails from your iOS device, but it has some issues. The trial limitations aside, the app had numerous performance issues during our tests, including a handful of crashes in situations in which we changed which photos or videos we wanted to send. This can lead to some degree of frustration.

This app is designed to do essentially one thing -- attach multiple images or videos to an e-mail instead of the default method from the iOS camera app. … Read more

Add, manage multiple Google+ profiles in latest Android update

For those of us with more than one Google+ account, the recent update to the Android app was welcome news.

Prior to the update, the workflow to manage multiple accounts in the Google+ app required you to log out of one account, then relaunch the Google+ app and select the account you'd like log back in to. It was a pain. Not only that, but alerts would not come through for the logged out account.

Now with the update, you're able to add multiple accounts, say for a business page you manage and your personal account, and still … Read more

This brings up a small window where the user can drag and drop folders … Read more

Review: Smart Multiplication visualizes core concepts but lacks depth

Smart Multiplication uses visualization tools to teach the core concepts of multiplication in a well-designed, but restricted educational tool. It starts off well, but quickly shows its limits in terms of menu modes, unlockables, and other features that are not immediately available to players.

The basic idea of Smart Multiplication is to visualize how it works. The classic diagonal slash method that children have been taught in school for decades is used here to show how the numbers interact with each other; and a well-designed interface, combined with well-executed tutorials, make for an easy-to-follow start to the app. The higher-level … Read more
