Google Nexus 4 Review and Giveaway

Even though I am an iPhone user and have been since the first generation iPhone was announced by the late Steve Jobs back in 2007, I’ve tried to keep an open mind about viable alternatives. I’ll be honest: I’ve been tempted to use an Android device. Several times. So when the opportunity to review the Nexus 4 presented itself, I leaped at the chance. We’ll be giving this review unit away, so stick around if you want it!

Bitrix24 Android Application Review + HTC Butterfly Giveaway

Back in October last year, I wrote about an interesting web service called Bitrix24. Basically, it’s a project management service and allows for teams to assign tasks, track progress and discussion, as well as providing a platform for interaction between employees — in other words, a social intranet for companies. Today, almost every cloud service is accompanied by some sort of mobile platform; and Bitrix24 is no different. So in this review, we’ll take a look at their free Android application which is available from Google Play. What’s more, we’ll also be giving away 25 Bitrix Startup licenses, and a HTC Butterfly!

ZIIIRO Saturn Watch Review and Giveaway

The last time I reviewed a ZIIIRO watch, I absolutely fell in love with it. To be honest, I nearly didn’t want to part with it. Now, the designer watch company has just released a brand new model called the ZIIIRO Saturn. Will it fill the void left by the ZIIIRO Celeste? How will the ZIIIRO Saturn, a somewhat digitised version of the ZIIIRO Celeste, hold up against my expectations? Will I like this €179 watch as much, and be willing to recommend it as highly as I did for its predecessor? We’ll just have to find out. We’re also giving away this designer watch away, so read through the review for more details about how you can win it!

We’re also giving away 5 iTwins at the end of this review! So if you’re into file security and encryption, or if you’re someone who values privacy, you won’t want to miss this giveaway.

Apple iPad Mini Review and Giveaway

This is a much overdue review, I’ll admit, but instead of publishing a breezy overview of the iPad mini, I wanted to experience and integrate it in my daily life in order to truly tell you if Apple’s latest creation — this overpriced 7.9″ tablet — is really worth spending so much money on. Before we begin, here’s a disclaimer: I love all Apple products from iPhones to iMacs. But when the iPad mini was announced, I wasn’t so sure. Anyway, we purchased a Slate 16GB iPad mini (WiFi-only model) for $329 to find out if Apple poured as much heart and soul into it; as they have for their previous products. After the review, we’re giving this 16GB iPad mini away to one MakeUseOf reader!
