  • The FBReader network, which allows you to control your library on all your devices and across the different platforms;
  • The App runs smoothly and fast;
  • It already has some catalogs enabled to save you time;
  • It’s a great app for traditional text, as well as for comic book readers;
  • The free synchronization is definitely a plus that allows you to be in control.

Cons:

The settings menu is not very clear; It should be more customizable, especially in terms of fonts; Despite the FBReader App is intuitive in most part, it just feels a little too basic, especially when you compare it with other apps in the store; The FBReader App is very quickly when you’re downloading an ebook. But it can be a mess when you’re downloading external apps; The iOS app is still missing.

Bottom Line:

When you’re looking to have the complete control over your library, the FBReader App is the perfect candidate. Allowing you to read multiple formats and to easily synchronize all your platforms on all your devices, it’s definitely an option. However, the down points are that it’s not very customizable when you want to take advantage of the reader and it sure is missing the app for the App Store.

Bottom Line:

There’s no question that the Bookmate App is a great app when you’re looking for books to read. With a varied library, you’ll be able to find many classics and more recent books. However, for these last ones, you’ll need to have a subscription.

  • It’s extremely easy to use and even a beginner who never used an app will be able to use it without having any problems.
  • The “aged-paper” that serves as the background for your ebooks may be simply great, giving you a touch of vintage.

Cons:

It’s definitely ready for a make-over; It should also have an app for the iOS App Store. The “aged-paper”, for some people, may need an urgent upgrade because it just seems antiquated.

Bottom Line:

Despite there are many reader apps in the market, either for Android, for Apple, or for both, we can’t just say that the Cool Reader App is just one more similar app. Yes, it has some flaws like the fact that it may seem a little old-fashioned with the “aged-paper”, but it certainly deserves its place as one of the best reader apps in the market.

It’s incredibly difficult to find a regular app that is able to open so many different formats as the Cool Reader App. And the fact that also allows you to customize some of the features it’s also a plus.

And you can never forget that the Cool Reader App is a free app. And if it’s only available for Android, so be it. At least, it’s available for more than 90% of the tablet and smartphone users.

Cons:

The FourSquare App may be a little complicated for first-time users since it has so many information Some labels and icons may not be very intuitive You’ll need to practice to use filters the way you want.

Bottom Line:

Without any doubt, when you’re looking for a great restaurant, bar. coffee, or whatever place you have in mind, the FourSquare App is the place to go. With so many detailed reviews about each place you have the intention to visit, you’ll get a pretty good idea about it. Despite the reviews are more concise than on Yelp, for example, you’ll still have a pretty good idea of what to expect. However, you just can’t forget the design and usability. Despite we understand it’s not easy to put so much information together in just one place, as well as they have been improving, it may still be overwhelming.

LoungeBuddy

loungebuddy_logo

It’s incredible how they are able to have such an easy to use interface and have so many information at your disposal at the same time. Even the search is amazing. If it weren’t’ for the maps to take so long to load, we could say that this was the perfect app for any traveler, regular or occasional.

SkyScanner App

flight-seach-skyscanner

  • They have included a Top Deals feature where you can see the best offers for summer vacations and weekend getaways.
  • Easy to follow and well-presented information.
  • No added fees when you book your flights, hotels, and car rentals.

Cons:

Since SkyScanner doesn’t sell flight tickets themselves, and if you’re using multiple airlines during your trip, you’ll have to book each trip in the respective airline’s page. Although this might not sound like a big deal but you should keep your fingers crossed to make sure you book one flight and that the prices won’t change for the other one.

Bottom Line:

Searching for the best flights, car rentals, and hotels can easily be transformed into a daunting and endless journey. However, when you have such a simple app like SkyScanner on your side, you can be sure that you’ll find the best deals.

  • The private messages and requests are a great feature that works very well.

Having too many users may be considered a disadvantage as well because it may take you some time to select the right host you’re looking for.

Bottom Line:

When traveling has become so expensive, it’s great to have an opportunity to travel the world without worrying about staying at hotels. And with the added security that the Couchsurfing app brings to the table, it couldn’t be better.

The same remains true to when you are the host. Being able to meet different people, with different cultures allow you to learn and to evolve. And you have always the chance to say that you’re not available in case you don’t like the other person’s profile.

  • Very easy to use and navigate.
  • Hosts usually provide many different photos that allow you to see exactly what you can expect.
  • Different options to choose the location you want: either use regular search or see the available hosts in a specific area in a map.

Bottom Line:

The Airbnb App is a great app when you’re looking to have a different experience with your accommodation. Instead of just choosing a simple apartment or a room to spend the night (or days), you can also search for houses, caves, castles, and even igloos. This will allow you to have a really remarkable experience that you’ll remember for the rest of your life.

As a host, depending on what accommodation you’re offering and where you’re located, you can make some extra money by renting a place you’re simply not using. By providing great images of the property, you will be able to attract more travelers.

The only negative side of the Airbnb App are the extra fees for both the travelers and hosts.

XE Currency

XE Currency

unnamed-_5_

Pros:

  • Supports more than 180 currency rates.
  • You can see the historical chart of the currency you want for over 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months and 1 year.
  • The graphics are interactive and with precise values.
  • You can store the last currency rates you downloaded and continue to use the app offline.

Cons:

The only con that we see is the fact that the Android version still doesn’t allow you to create or define any alerts for when a currency reaches a pre-determined price.

Bottom Line:

With over 40 million downloads, the XE Currency App is definitely the best app in what concerns with currency converters. It’s not a simple app to use as it’s practical and you can even use it offline.

When you use the XE Currency App you immediately understand what it does and what you need to do to get what you want. So, in terms of usability, it couldn’t be better.

Daily Horoscope

Daily Horoscope

screen696x696 (2)

Pros:

Daily Horoscope is an amazing app if you’re interested in learning the meaning of the of year, month, or day you were born in. It runs extremely smooth and doesn’t seem to have any effect on your smartphone’s overall battery life. The user interface is easy to navigate ,and switching between Horoscopes is easy and fluid.

Cons:

Even though I have personally never experienced any ads when using this app, some users experience ads. And on some of the older versions of Android devices the app can take a while to boot-up ,but this rarely happens.

Bottom Line:

Should you use Daily Horoscope? Depending on your beliefs of Horoscopes, this app is made for you. But if you don’t believe in Horoscopes, you can still find this as being a daily motivation. Even though my views on Horoscopes is conflicted, some of the personality traits tied to my Horoscope are a pretty accurate representation of me.

Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go

logo

Pros:

Pokemon is an amazing trip down memory lane for many. This game fulfill the childhood wishes of many and for many it was a long time coming. It can help you get your exercise and help you socialize with many other people using the app. It’s easy to get into and hard to put down; the overall community of Pokemon is large and you can meet some amazing people playing this game. Android version experiences less crashes and stutters then its iPhone counterpart.

Cons:

Pokemon Go without the Pokemon name wouldn’t be much special. The hype along is the reason most people are avid users of this game. It boasts many problems with constant crashing and the app randomly powering off. It hasn’t yet been noticed, but the replay problem will soon be a problem. There isn’t much to do. Even though catching Pokemon can be addictive, you will soon notice that there aren’t any real differences between the higher level Pokemon and the lower level Pokemon. There are several complaints on the Android version of Pokemon randomly deleting itself, and the app taking to much space on their harddrive.

Bottom Line:

Should you go into Pokemon?

Joining the wave and meeting new extraordinary people through this app makes me say yes. But the many problems this app boasts makes me say no. Depending on your faith and passion for the Pokemon universe, this game can either be a must get or a pass.

Marvel Future Fight

Marvel Future Fight

Marvel Future Fight Logo

Pros:

Finally us Marvel fans can rejoice with playing with our favorite character in a well fleshed out game that will keep your attention for a long time. With a fluid fighting system and an amazing array of characters you can choose from, this game should satisfy the cult of the newer generation and the older generation. The game till this day is still updated regularly, and the developers listen to the community on what should be added to the game.

Cons:

The story is forgettable and won’t keep you interested long enough. The in-app purchases can be unfair at times and grinding your way to the top is bitter-sweet. The levels can be short and once at a high enough level, you will be able to breeze through most of it. In addition, the replay value is low once you have reached a high enough level and skillset.

Bottom Line:

Should you join the fight?

Yes! Even with its problems and lackluster story, this game can still be a blast to play to kill time. Playing as your favorite Marvel hero or villain through this well thought out RPG adaptation is promising with lower expectations. It can be a time waster as you slowly grind your way to the top of the leader boards, and assemble your crew to reign yourself a supreme Avenger.

Waze

Waze

Waze Logo

Pros:

The smart and unique design brings Waze up to the competition of Apple Maps. Even though this wouldn’t be a great substitute for Google maps, it’s still an amazing app for those who would prefer something else. It still stands strong as a standalone app and Google’s ownership of the company hasn’t taken a huge impact on its outstandingly smart algorithm and intelligent navigation. Its data driven, community based software works like magic and no matter the circumstances or the complexity of the road the fastest route will always show.

Cons:

There are no pedestrian, bicycle, or slow moving truck directions. At times, the icons can be hard to distinguish, and at areas with large amount of traffic icons it can make it hard to read.

Bottom Line:

Ride the Waze

So should you use Waze? There are much better options now compared to Waze, and any navigation app that isn’t Google Maps or Apple Maps isn’t really taken seriously. But that doesn’t take away the fact that Waze still holds its own identity. The community driven app is still unique and outstanding. Its crowd-sourced data and its amazing algorithms that collects data from your frequent drives; this app is still a great investment of your time.
