I don’t know what it is, but as long as I have been working with software (and now apps), if it looks good, I like it. The Dub Music Player + Equalizer is no exception. Instead of the flat look that developers are working toward, Dub Music Player + Equalizer has a simple, effective and real-like interface that sports an awesome looking vue meter. I am not into playlists and I like the idea with this player I can select a folder of music and it will play the contents of the folder.
Enjoy your music in a new way.

Turn your Android devices (i.e. smartphones and tablets) into a baby (or pet) monitor with Munchkin Monitor.
The Munchkin Monitor app needs to be installed on at least two devices. One device acts as the Munchkin (baby) Station and stays with the baby, while the other acts a Parent Station and stays with you. Together they form a single baby monitor. The stations need to be paired before first use.
During monitoring the Munchkin Station uses its microphone to detect noise and transmits this information over the cloud to any paired & listening Parent Stations. The Parent Station then notifies you if it’s too noisy for too long, or if the connection fails. Additionally, a Parent Station can request a photo from the Munchkin Station.

If you are familiar with sticky notes, then you need to take a look at Google Keep. Google Keep is Google’s electronic version of sticky notes. With Google Keep you can create notes quickly and easily; AND, since it is a Google Application you can sync your notes using your Google account. This means you can get to your notes from virtually anywhere (i.e. Android Phone, Android Tablet, Android Wearable, and through the Google Chrome Web App on the internet).
I have thoroughly tested (and used) Google Keep since its’ inception; making it one of my favorite applications.
Initially when Google released Google Keep there was a lot of hype comparing it to the popular notekeeping app called Evernote. To me this was a inaccurate comparison. Evernote is at the more comprehensive level of note keeping, whereas Google Keep is at the basic level of note keeping (such as grocery lists, check lists, products you want to remember, and the list goes on and on). The more I use Google Keep, the more I love it.
To get you started, Google Keep for the Google Chrome Browser is available [here] and Google Keep for the Android tablet and smartphone platforms is available [here]
Notes & lists in Google Keep – You can create notes on the go with Google Keep on your Android phone or tablet, on your Android wearable, and on your browser. You can pick colorful notes, make a check list, insert a picture and can create an archive to keep old notes
Reminders in Google Keep – You can add time and location reminders to new and existing notes in Google Keep.
Search & sync in Google Keep – Your notes are automatically synced to Google so you can view them on other devices and the web.

I have multiple email accounts through multiple email providers (i.e. Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo) which serve specific purposes (to prevent drowning in email). To manage my accounts from my Android devices (smartphone and tablet) I use an email client called MailWise.
I recently started using MailWise; and, in comparison to some of the other Android email clients I have used, I am finding that load time is fast and managing my multiple accounts (from one app instead of many) is easy to do.
The best thing I like is that it just plain looks good on my smartphone. My email, from these multiple accounts are displayed chronologically in a quick and accessible format. The excessive formatting that you find in standard email is sorted out by MailWise, getting you to the heart of the email.
Another factor with MailWise is that none of your data is stored in the cloud anywhere. All email data that transpires is stored locally on your device.
- Get all your mail in one app with the best conversation view on the market.
- Safe & Secure – a pure client side email app – all data is stored locally on your device. Your data can’t leak from our server – we don’t have a server.
- Manage multiple email accounts from different providers conveniently in one email client app.
- Optimize your Inbox – a smart way to make email fun again.
- The best Exchange mail app & easiest way to access and manage your ActiveSync Exchange & Outlook Email account on your mobile.
- Completely Free!
- Please allow up to 24 hours after installation for the app to become faster as it merges your inbox into conversations locally
