4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says..., 24 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GSam Screen Dimmer Free (App)
This is a great little app if you don't to see a bar or icon on your screen all the time, and which importantly allows you to see the effect on what your looking at as you change the setting. In this it's a little bit more user friendly than the standard app. The paid version also lets you change the brightness at a set time...useful if you use as a nightstand clock for example. I do wish there was the option to put a 'permanent' icon on the screen though, if so desired, for quick access. But that's my only suggestion for improved versatility. But it's simple is as simple does, so 5 stars what it does .

5.0 out of 5 stars Just The Weather - Simple!, 18 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy access to the weather, in a simple format, but on a illustrative background. Easy to read, good to look at and based on Accu Weather reports which are normally accurate. Less busy than other weather apps which try hard to do absolutely everything, but with a complexity that puts you off....especially first thing when your brain is a still asleep!!

Put your headphones on and dream... An off the cuff, wild card purchase. Simply beautiful. Try Hussain's other music...similarly dream inspiring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Raw, 9 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In this unassuming book, there is a little of everyone who has experienced the worst tragedy and the greatest love in their lives. Beautiful and raw. Funny and poignant. Simple yet complex. In the end we experience acceptance of life's bends, potholes and sweeping vistas. In the end I felt uplifted and optimistic, as the years roll on and I with them.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Guilty Pleasure of a Book, 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Okay, so it's not the most challenging, game changing, life affirming or literary classic of a book. But who cares! It's well written, literate, well paced & enjoyable. And not too long - not trying to take itself seriously by throwing more pages at the reader like other author's work. Mr Kusler knows when to stop...and when he's on to a good thing. The background is believable enough, the characters likeable. And his name sounds like that of another author who is another of my guilty pleasures!! Read this book. Don't judge, analyse or compare it. Just enjoy it as a welcome relief from other tomes - a mouthwash for the brain!. And it's just the first in a series.... Refreshed... Right now back to Nietzsche!! ;-)

4.0 out of 5 stars I hope this Book 1 of more!, 22 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An exciting and an interesting book in reasonably equal measure. Probably a first to be based on the PJ' s as a subject of thriller fiction.

I thoroughly enjoyable book...so why only 4 stars? A little too full of unexplained jargon and military in-lingo, led to the loss of understanding of some crucial points. This affected the impetus at times. And yes I do know there is a Glossary...but not every phrase is in there and who wants to keep looking things up? Also, I couldn't really get my head around that this was PJ rescue outfit. It could just have easily been about any "special forces" team, a lot of the time.

That said I learned a lot about these clearly unsung heroes, and when all is said and done this is a good book, exciting, well researched and competently stitched together with good dialogue and characters you care about. Just a bit more of the 'rescue' side of things please, as I suspect this is ever bit as thrilling as killing!! So Mr Robbins, let us have no.2 please... :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and ingenious, 11 Mar 2013

It's smart looking and it ingeniously "locks" onto a belt. For the price, look no further! Don't know how I did without it...

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use!, 11 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PassPal+ (App)
Used for keeping my web & other password, access or other secure details. It looks good and is nicely uncomplicated. My only criticism is that to change a password, or details within an entry, you have to change all details within that sub-entry. So if you keep a lot of details in the 'note' section within an entry, you have to re-enter all the details in the note section. Otherwise, it's big and bold and easy to use.
