I used to use Safari’s search field or Siri up until Google introduced Google Now and it caught my attention.
Google app provides voice search, which understands my pronunciation better than Siri and now you can view cards related to the things you recently searched for. From the main window you can also view the local weather and set reminders.
Let’s view the screenshots.
You can also see access all other Google apps from this window.
If you’re using an iPhone, you probably came across the problem with custom ringtones. On all my earlier phones, it was quite easy – I just selected the music from my library as a ringtone.
Unfortunately, Apple made it quite painful to do that. One way to do it is to buy the ringtone from iTunes Store. But, as much as I respect copyright and paying artists for the music and so on, paying $1.29 for 30 second ringtone (the same amount you pay for the track) is a bit too much. Especially, if you have different ringtones for different contacts + you like to change them often, as I do, cause I get annoyed with the same melody after short time.
Luckily, there is another way to fix this problem. It is not very short, but it works. There are several apps that cut the song from your library and turn it into a ringtone. I prefer Ringtones app for it’s easy interface and video with understandable instructions.
This is the main window when you open the app.
After you tap the button, it takes you to your music library.
After you selected the song you would like to turn into a ringtone, you have 2 options -> you can create Ringtone or Text message tone.
Then you slide your finger over a sound-wave to capture the best part of the song. Touch Play to make sure you’re happy with the result and then touch the Save button.
On the next screen you see your ringtone being saved.
Now you have to do annoying part on the computer, but it’s not difficult. See the video below.
Hope the info was useful for you and have a great day!
Nothing can substitute the excitement of purchasing a new book for me. I love going to a good book store, going through my favorite sections like art, design and self-enrichment, picking up a book, flipping through the pages and taking the time to select the next book to read. If I order the books online, then there is an excitement of getting the package, opening it and that fresh smell of paper and ink.
But it is time to take advantage of the technological era and enjoy the ability to read on the go. I like to use my time efficiently while traveling or waiting somewhere and having iBooks on my iPhone or iPad makes the reading experience convenient and easy-to-use.
You can easily navigate to contents, bookmarks and notes.
Customize the background, fonts and the colors as you wish.
The store holds thousands of titles to choose from.
You can also create collections of books and organize your library.
Another app that was recently suggested by one of my friends and have earned my respect is Noom Weight. Noom weight is the tracking tool or a journal of what you eat. First, when you download and install the app, it asks you to enter your age, current weight and height and your goal weight. After that you enter your meals and workouts (what’s cool here is that even activities like housework and driving count). After entering a meal or a workout, the app shows you motivational messages on what kind of foods you should reduce and what should you eat more and encourages you to have a healthy lifestyle! I’m recently became an addict of healthy eating and working out and I absolutely adore this app! Plus, I love apps that have slick and neat design and this app surely has it!
Now, this app is absolutely my favorite. I wake up and I turn it on and it’s on all day whenever and wherever wifi is available. From easy to use and neat design to the huge selection of probably all existing radio stations on Earth, this app got my heart and I actually purchased Pro version, which I rarely do. Pro version removes annoying ads and allows you to record favorite show or a song.
5 stars! See for yourself ->
The app also allows you to view recent radio stations list and it also gives you recommendation based on your previous selection.
