Simon Sage – You Do not Be aware of Jack
I am now not a lot of a man for Minutiae Evening, however You Do not Be aware of Jack has been a favourite sport of mine because again within the day once they did weekly webisodes. Their up to date push into cellular has saved the irreverent, hilarious, and quick motion of the unique, although with a freemium twist. Which you can simplest play so time and again a day, although that you can spend your in-recreation winnings for additonal rounds. Leaderboards are all the time on the forefront, due to the fact YDKJ has at all times promoted unhealthy and imply-spirited competitors.

Jerry Hildenbrand – Dashlane Password Manager
If you’re like me, you have logins spread all over the Internet. There’s no way you can keep up with them all if you use separate and secure passwords, and writing them all down on post-it notes isn’t a very good solution. For folks like us, a password manager is a must. I’ve used several, including some popular ones as well as some not-so-popular ones, but I think I’ve stumbled across the one I’ll be keeping — Dashlane Password Manager.
With the same features as some of the more expensive options, like AES-256 encryption, secure password generation and smart autofill (a must while using on the small screen of a phone) the free version of Dashlane works really well. Even the free desktop version (Windows and Mac OS) has plenty of features and configurable plug-ins for Chrome, Firefox and Safari. The app and the desktop program do everything you’d want or need from a password utility, all for free.
There is a premium version of Dashlane, and for $ 20 a year you can have unlimited devices synchronized through the service (the free version limits you to one mobile device) if you’re that person who has a bunch of devices laying around. Give Dashlane a try and I’ll bet you find it suits your needs.

Andrew Martonik – reClock
I’m usually one to have the home screens on my phone laid out as efficiently as possible, limiting the amount of flair that looks nice but just gets in the way. But every once and a while I come across a widget that draws my attention enough to want to use precious screen real estate on it. That widget this time around is reClock, and as the name would suggest its a clock widget, but this one has an unconventional time display. Right off the bat it uses words rather than a traditional clock face, but reClock goes one further and doesn’t display the time in a standard format — it makes you think about it.
Rather than saying “Twelve Fourty Three PM” or something of the like, reClock will say “Eleven after Twelve Thirty Two” or “Four Till Twelve Fourty Seven”, making a bit of a word puzzle that you have to think about in order to consider the time. It’s a fun way to think about a clock that probably isn’t for everyone, but those looking for a funky design and an original clock this may enjoy it. It’s available for free with a whole bunch of font, color and display options with an in-app donation (of about $ 1.40) to unlock even more.

Alex Dobie – Falcon Pro
I’ll admit it — since the official Twitter client for Android got updated with a new Holo-centric design, swiping between tabs and no more ugly menu button, that’s what I’ve been using for my mobile tweeting. But Falcon Pro has received a big update this week which has tempted me back from the official app. In version 2.0, Falcon now supports multiple accounts — a long-requested feature for those of us managing an organization’s accounts as well as our own. In addition, swiping between tabs is now possible on Android 3.0+ devices, and there’s a sleek new “black” theme to complement the grey and white skins.
Falcon Pro is one of the best Android Twitter clients still standing, and it’s well worth your two bucks. Grab it from the link below.
