4.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Photo editiing, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: XnExpress Pro (App)
I've just downloaded this app. and before that, I just had the bundled software from my phone (Samsung Galaxy S).

There's like two different worlds, one with the photo editing software and the other without. If you really want your pictures to be as they were when you took them with a decent camera, or if you'd like to add some effects to make them look better.

This app. uses sliders for the various different settings such as shadows, highlights, midtone, saturation, sharpness, contrast, although, there's no histogram, which would have been nice.
You can see what they've done, and on the mobile platform, it works well.

You can take a picture, alter it and publish it.

4 Stats.

= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Been playing this game since Civ II in the 90's.

Maybe it's just a little too smooth nowadays...

I'm going to find something else to play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game for free, 12 July 2013

This review is from: Quell Reflect (App)
Don't play it all the time , but it's a great time filler and slightly challenging to the old grey stuff.
I got it for free on apps store. So I gave it 4.
If you like cute puzzlers it may be worth a five.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love this app, 12 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clean Master Phone Boost (App)
Does all the cleaning. Closes down unwanted programs.
'1-touch boost' - provides a home-page mountable icon and a nice little sweeping ani when pressed.

If you like to have the place clean, but can't be bothered yourself, then try this app. It's whizzy doodle!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, 12 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: CNN Breaking US & World News (App)
CNN and it's extensive network of journalists and reporters available to read in a condensed and regularly updated format.

If you're serious about news, this is the app for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a game, a re-hashed book., 12 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This took under a day to complete.
More of a novelty item.
Maybe a book, as essentially nothing has been added since it was published in book form.

1.0 out of 5 stars This camera sucks, 21 Mar 2013
I can't believe how many good reviews this camera gets.

Compact-wise, it's a less advanced offering than the very 1st compact, the Optio-S. It takes worse pictures, it's more complex and this is 8 years on.

Other than that, I can think of the following to say about this camera:-

Pro's: It will fit in your pocket.

Con's: It's made by an appliance maker who clearly knows nothing about making cameras.

I've traveled all over the world taking pictures. It's my job.
This camera is trash, literally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really glad I bought this..., 10 May 2012
I walked into HMV whilst Cut Copy was playing on CD#2.

Amazing track. I asked the assistant, he got the CD which turned out to be 'Wevvers' which was new in that day.
Took that to be my invitation to buy, and I didn't regret it.

This CD is full of lush melodies, solid beats and swirling backings + the odd vocal thrown in.
Seeing as it's the 1st solid state music format I've bought for many a year, I'm pretty happy with it.

Musically it seems to press all the buttons.

For £10 and 3 CD's. It's a surefire thing..

3.0 out of 5 stars Hunt for accommodations, 2 Oct 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More pictures better maps more references and in-depth. This has more information than the other guides on the area.
The thing that lets it down an accommodation section which leaves you to pin point locations yourself :(

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview, 2 Oct 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More of an accompaniment guide, you'll not find any practical information in here but there are some good pictures & cultural references.
More of a bed book, not too heavy on factual so as to ruin a trip.
