Track Your Weight The Smart Way With Libra [Android]

Track Your Weight The Smart Way With Libra [Android]

Today I’d like to tell you about an Android application I have been using every day since March 16, 2011. That’s over 300 days of use, day in, day out. It’s a free application called Libra, and it’s used for entering your weight every morning and then getting a picture of where you are going. Libra is so good, that it is one of the applications hand-picked for our Best Android Apps page.

Listen To Full Length Music Albums For Free With Bandcamp

Sometimes it feels like the entrenched music industry (embodied by the big labels) is doing everything it can to keep us feeling like pirates for wanting to download music. But no matter how much they try to keep the old model (“artist to label, label to consumer”) alive, it is actually dying. Things are changing, and artists have amazing tools for reaching listeners directly these days.

Gentle Alarm – A Fantastic Way To Wake Up Gradually Every Morning [Android 1.5+]

Gentle Alarm is everything I could wish for in an alarm clock. Its paid version (linked) costs around $3, and yet has over 50,000 downloads with a 4.5-star average out of 7,475 reviews. In fact, it is so good, we put it on our Best Android Apps page. So what’s so great about this alarm clock? Let me explain and you might be convinced at least to try its free version.

Keep Prying Eyes Off Your Personal Data With App Protector Pro [Android]

You’re sitting somewhere fiddling with your phone, when suddenly someone gets all excited. “Hey, is that the new [insert model here]? Can I see it?!” If this is a stranger, they’re obviously crazy. But if this is someone you know (family or friends), it would be strange not to hand over the phone. Then again, they might stumble onto something they’re really not supposed to see.

Is Adobe Actively Encouraging International Software Piracy? [Opinion]

Does Adobe have an intentionally discriminatory international pricing policy? It certainly seems so because if you are outside of the US, you will often have to pay much more for the same exact bits and bytes a US customer gets.

How To Design Your Own Awesome Workstation

I work in a tiny apartment, and use two 24” monitors. I needed a workstation that fits into a tiny niche, but can still accommodate me for many hours every day and let me work productively. This called for a custom solution, and I rose to the challenge, designing my one-of-a-kind workstation. While it’s fun to show and tell, I think I’ve learned some valuable lessons along the way.

My Favorite Apps of 2011: The Best of the Best [Mostly For Android]

2011 has been an intense year for me. I started writing for MakeUseOf early May, and it has been an absolute blast so far. I often like to take an in-depth look at a single app or website when I write (although I’ve been known to write up the occasional round-up). Some of the apps I got to review this year were real gems, so I thought it might be nice to compose a list of the cream of the crop

What Is Telnet & What Are Its Uses? [MakeUseOf Explains]

Telnet is one of those tech terms you may occasionally hear, but not in an ad or a feature laundry list of any product you may buy. That’s because it’s a protocol, or a language used to talk to computers and other machines; not only that, but Telnet is actually ancient in Internet terms, dating back from 1973. So what is Telnet, and what is it good for, anyway?
