Android App List

January 30, 2013 Leave a comment

Here’s a list of must-have applications for your Android device.  While there are a lot of other apps you may enjoy, you might consider this list as mandatory installs.

  • Dropbox – take your files with you everywhere
  • Evernote – go paperless and get super organized
  • Netflix – entertainment
  • Pandora – find new music and listen to your favorite tunes
  • Amazon Kindle – buy your books on Amazon and read them on any device or OS.  Not all companies offer you so much flexibility.
  • Skype – keep connected with your friends and family with free video calls
  • KeyPassDroid – keep track of all your other accounts.  You need Dropbox for this, too
  • Lookout – secure your device and make it ready to find in case you lose it

Mountain Tweaks

January 8, 2013 Leave a comment

Modify some annoying behaviors in Lion Mountain (MacOS) with a free util called Mountain Tweaks.

I use it to:
  • Show the library folder within home.
  • Get rid of the leather look on ical and contacts.
  • Show hidden files.
  • Get rid of iCloud as default place to save.  Great for quick notes in textedit.
