Google Tasks Review - Google's Second Attempt at To-Do List

Image

Believe it or not, to-do lists have played quite an important part in my life. They (obviously) help me keep track of my tasks, my shopping lists, and even my blogging process. I do admire Apple's Reminder app, as it is simple, user friendly, and just works. It effortlessly and automatically syncs across your devices (mac, iPhone, iPad), so the principle of 'write once, see everywhere' is gracefully and elegantly applied here.

I wish I could've said the same about Google, though. For some reason, I cannot bear using iOS as my primary mobile OS, so I cannot maximize that Reminder app's full potential. Unfortunately, Google didn't have the same app that works as good as Apple's Reminder. They do have Keep, but you can't possibly call keep a full to-do list app, no? For me, Google Keep is more like a versatile, all-in-one notes app, which is not what I'm looking for. I could also use …

P.S.: Please excuse some of the pictures. Currently, I'm testing a watermarking software. Watermarking is needed to prevent misuse of the pictures in this blog. Pictures will only be watermarked if I personally took or made them.

If you’re looking for an easy, no-nonsense blogging platform, Wordpress is still the way to go. It’s supported by many hosting companies, has solid community, thousands of plugins and themes, and regular updates. Installing it is also a breeze, with many hosting companies offer automatic, scripted installation for free. If you want an example, our sister blog, Technoverse, is based on Wordpress.

But, the problem with a lot of hosting platforms is that sometimes, we feel the urge to move. This urge can be caused by many things: cheaper rates, promotions, better and faster servers, etc. This move calls for migration, and for some people, it's a terrifying word.

Quick Tip - Quickly Switching Phones

I'll admit this last few weeks are kind of slow, so that's why I'm writing this. In this article, I'm going to share a tip on how to quickly move between devices. A decade ago, moving between devices is a pain. You have to manually backup your contacts, photos, etc. using PC Suite, if you still remember the term. Coupled with the limited technology back then, it was a painful chore. But now, thanks to cloud technology, everything is a snap. I'll show you.

Oh, and before we begin, let me tell you that I'll be using the most common services, which should be used by most people. You may use other services, but I bet that you are currently using at least one of these. Oh, and this guide is mainly aimed for switching from one Android phone to another. I'll mention iOS at some points, but that's not our main topic.

I'm a gaming accessories hater-turned-fan, especially after trying Steelseries' Rival 500 (review here). I then bought a MSi laptop (which happens to have Steelseries keyboard), and the next thing I knew, I was already entrenched in Steelseries' ecosystem. Funny how your mind can be changed just by trying out the real-life product.

I'm on the verge of buying their mousepad, but that's a story for another day. What I'm going to talk about today is the latest mouse on their lineup, the Rival 600. Its beautiful design and symmetric streams of colors enticed me into buying it. I've used it for both gaming and working for approximately a week now, and I'm ready to share my experience. Okay, so shall we start?

Parallel Space Review - Feels Like Having Two Phones

Until a couple of months ago, I've been having two smartphones with me. That's because I still believed that one phone will never be able to have two WhatsApps. If it was, it would take a toll on the battery.

However, I then felt burdened. Not only because I had to maintain both of them, but also because one felt neglected. So, I decided to give MIUI's Dual Apps a shot (I've been a loyal Xiaomi fan)... And it works like a charm.

Okay. One device was sold. Then, I needed to switch phone because mine was actually my father's. Okay, I decided to move to Zenfone, simply because I wanted to try something different. Then, I missed MIUI's Dual Apps. The ZenUI 3 at the time didn't support twin apps yet.

So, I went ahead and tried Parallel Space. It kept coming up in search results, not sure if it was good marketing or the app was really good. And you know what, I've been happy. I even bought…

Infinix Zero 5 Review: A Worthy Flagship Upgrade

Even though I thought I already suspended device reviews, an opportunity suddenly popped up. My father decided that he wanted to try out Infinix's latest Zero flagship, the Zero 5. I suspect there were a few things that tempted him to upgrade: Dual camera, large screen, and most importantly: insanely affordable price. Yeah, the latter is the most important because at the moment, there's no phone at that price range which has 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.

The specs seem beastly. Add a slew of accessories into the packaging and dedicated SD card slot (in addition to 2 SIM slots), you'll have yourself a great flagship. My father chose the flashy red color, and fortunate enough, I have the chance to try the phone out for a week, before sending it to him.

So, the million-dollar question is, is it worth your money? Or rather, why is it worth your money? Let's find that out!
