NEW – Software Downloads Page (with hundreds of titles — updated daily)

January 3, 2017

Just did a revamping of the software Downloads Page…  The page consists of feeds from numerous reputable software and app sites that primarily specializes in FREE software. I am currently using this as my “go to” source to review software listings and to see what is new and/or has been updated. The list is very, very long…  If you hover your mouse pointer over a software title that interests you, a floating description will appear.

Haystack TV For Your Chromecast

December 17, 2016

On Black Friday I took advantage of the $25 Chromecast and installed it on my TV in my garage. My wife hasn’t seen me since. You can still take advantage of the $25 Chromecast at the official Google site (click here), until December 24th. After getting the Chromecast I was like a kid with a new toy and it wasn’t long before I was looking for Chromecast ready apps (that you install on your Android phone or tablet then cast or display on the TV).  

One of my favorites so far, is Haystack TV… In a nutshell it is like a high-def visual feed reader that specializes mostly in news; however, I found that you can customize (search for and save sources & topics) that can be quite entertaining (like late night TV segments).  Even if you do not have a Chromecast, Haystack TV is worth downloading on your smartphone or tablet.

Haystack TV is a free and Google Cast™ Ready app, a great alternative to cable news. Haystack has featured repeatedly for Chromecast and Android TV the latest politics, local, national and world news from top news organizations such as CNN, AP, MSNBC, NYTimes and the BBC.

Text From Your Computer (or Android Tablet) Using Your Current Android Phone Number

May 17, 2016

Here’s how this works… Install Yappy on your Android phone; then, install Yappy on computer (and/or tablet). Another option, if you use Google Chrome or Firefox, is to install their browser extensions for Yappy. The key here is to make sure you have the app installed on your phone to make sure your texts sync between your phone and computer (and vice versa). If you are confused with my instructions, then visit the Yappy web site to learn more. I have been using Yappy and it has worked quite well for me.

May 12, 2016

When performing a google search on your mobile devices (phones, tablets, etc.); Google now gives you a search tab to look for apps. Of course you can go to Google Play to do the same thing, but this is pretty convenient; especially, if you are into apps (and software) as I am…
