An iPhone User's Opinions On the Samsung Galaxy S5 Event

Let me start by saying that just because I love my iPhone, doesn't mean I hate every other phone on the market. Frankly, I love pure Android but more importantly, I love technology in general, Apple just happens to be my choice based on my personal preference. Google is great, Samsung is great and competition is essential BUT, I won't hold back comparing to my beloved iPhone if it's called for.

Chrome Notifications Out of Beta

A few weeks ago Google released Chrome Notifications within a beta version for Windows, OS X and Chrome OS. The beta version brought Google Now to the desktop which has been a mobile only service thus far. This means you can start receiving useful information such as weather, the route back home, flight information and more effortlessly. Now, Chrome Notifications seem to be out of beta for Mac users. With a simple update a bell shaped button will begin showing up on your menu-bar behaving as a hub for all notifications sent by Chrome Apps and Extensions. However, surprisingly Google Now seems to be absent at the moment. Originally, in the beta version, there existed three buttons instead of the two present now. This included a mute button, a settings button and a cards button for Google Now which is lacking from the update.

If You Use OS X Then You Need BetterSnapTool

A long, long time ago I used to be a Windows user but, ever since switching to Mac and OS X, I haven't looked back. However, one feature that I undoubtedly missed was window snapping. For those unfamiliar with window snapping, it is the ability to simply re-size a window to completely fill or take up either half of the screen by dragging the window to the respective edge of the desktop. It is extremely convenient and is probably something you already do manually. Also, it satisfies the perfectionists like me that enjoy knowing each window takes up exactly half the screen - pixel by pixel.

Top Apps - January 2014

Here's a round-up of our favorite apps for the month of January.

Swiftkey Note

Swiftkey Note is just as good as any other note taking app but where it really shines is with its "Magical Prediction Technology." Swiftkey is able to predict what words you are intending to use next as you type. It also offers syncing with Evernote, easy tagging, and multiple language support.
