Get All Your Mail In One App With MailWise (Android)

September 16, 2014

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.

GEEK SQUEAK – Android Authority Posts List of “35 of the best free Android Apps”

September 15, 2014

I am big into the Android apps and not afraid to take them for a spin (on my smartphone or tablet). Android Authority recently drafted a nice review on “35 of the best free Android Apps“. After reading the article, I must say my taste for Android Apps must be right on. Out of the 35 apps they had listed, I already had 23 of those apps installed on my devices and the other 12 that I do not have installed, I can tell you, are highly rated apps.

If you are an Android smartphone or tablet user, this list is a “must see”…

ANDROID – A FREE Smartphone And Tablet GPS Navigation App That Requires No Internet Connection

September 2, 2014

When you use your smartphone or tablet as a GPS Navigator, the mapping component often needs to handshake with the internet in order to perform the map updates. This is all fine and good if you are in areas where the updates can occur. An alternative solution that will make your phone and/or tablet a true GPS device is to download the app called MapFactor: GPS Navigator.

MapFactor: GPS Navigation

MapFactor Navigator is a free turn-by-turn GPS navigation app for Android phones and tablets using OpenStreetMaps data. Maps are installed on the SD card so there is no need for an Internet connection when traveling. Map and app updates are FREE every month.  If you live in the U.S., you will have option to download map data for sub-regions and individual states.


Geek Squeak – Android Authority Reporting Pushbullet Updated With Cross-Device Copy/Paste

August 20, 2014

Pushbullet is an app that gives you the ability to move files, pictures, links, and more between your devices (and computers). If you have multiple computers and devices (such as smartphones and tablets), then Pushbullet is a must have app that works across those platforms. Android Authority has an article posted reporting that Pushbullet Updated With Cross-Device Copy/Paste. This goes to show that this app continues to get better and better and serves a real purpose.

The service continues to evolve with improved notifications and more support for cross-device data sharing. Today’s app update is unique in that it takes the service’s functionality past simple notifications – users can now copy/paste across different computing units… @Android Authority

A TTS (Text To Speech) Program With Functionality Of ASR (Automatic Speed Recognition Integrated)

August 11, 2014

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] A TTS (Text To Speech) Program With Functionality Of ASR (Automatic Speed Recognition Integrated) – One of my hobbies in life is this blog. To assist me with getting a good read on what I publish, I use a TTS (Text To Speech) program that allows me to hear my written words. Typically when we write it is all visual; however, when something is read back to you it changes the whole perspective of things.

The program that I use for this purpose is a FREE (portable app) standalone program called DSpeech.

DSpeech gives you the ability to copy and paste text into the DSpeech reader and have it read back to you using different voices. You can also save the audio output to a variety of different audio file formats (such as WAV, .MP3, AAC, WMA or OGG).

DSpeech is a TTS (Text To Speech) program with functionality of ASR (Automatic Speech Recognition) integrated. It is able to to read aloud the written text and choose the sentences to be pronounced based upon the vocal answers of the user. It is specifically designed to quickly and directly provide the functions and improved practical usefulness that are requested by this kind of program. In the meantime, the invasiveness and resource consumption is minimal.

Periodically Change The Background Image On Your Computer (like every hour or every day)

June 30, 2014

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] Periodically Change The Background Image On Your Computer (like every hour or every day) – You may have figured out that in Windows 7 and Windows 8 you have the ability to setup a screensaver that will display your photos and images on your computer as a slideshow (when the computer goes idle for a preset period of time).  The problem with this is that it is limited in what you can do. Actually screensavers are really a thing of the past (that was designed to save your screen from burn in).

If you really want something that I consider an awesome piece of software, that is periodically updated (and improved), I encourage you to take a look at John’s Background Switcher (aka: JBS).

John’s Background Switcher

What does John’s Background Switcher do?  John best describes it as this: “JBS sits in your system tray (down by the clock) and changes your background at the time interval of your choosing. You tell it where to get pictures from and how to show them – maybe you just want to see one photo at a time or maybe you’d like to see a ‘Snapshot Scrapbook‘ of photos thrown across your desktop. It’s up to you and you never know what’s coming next!”

Take a look at John’s Background Switcher; and, that dull boring computer background will be transformed into a beautiful display that makes good use of your images (and photos) with the ability to pull images from various sources on the internet.  Get it here (for FREE)!
