4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough. Plays flawlessly from a USB stick, 10 Jun. 2016

Good enough. Plays flawlessly from a USB stick. Plays MKVs. Unfortunately is infected with Cinavia audio-watermark playback restrictions, as are all BluRay players with recent firmware. Otherwise fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good., 10 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exceptionally comfortable with no 'head-pinch', I can wear these literally all day.

They have clear, well-balanced sound, just like all the reviews say.

The cable is very long, but as it's detachable, is easily replaced with a shorter version should it prove unwieldy.

The best headphones I've owned.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lack of Insight, 8 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The app has many features, and is generally very good, but for me falls down in one major area (and chance two stars).

It has several bell sounds, all of which sound very good - many different options which should suit everyone. The timers you can set are very customisable; you can set different types of bell to begin and end sessions, and also different numbers of strikes at the beginning and end. There's also an option for interval chimes.

All in all, everything that you could want from a meditation timer app.

Apart from one crucial thing: allowing you to turn the screen off and save your battery.

It's crazy that an app which requires no visual attention (you're supposed to be meditating, remember) should insist on sitting there burning through your battery displaying a screen which its users will definitely not be looking at.

Why this app can't run in the background without the screen on is beyond me. I have another less featuresome app that easily does this.

If it ran in the background with the screen off and the device locked, it would deserve five stars, but forcing people to waste battery power like this means it's almost useless unless you plug your device in to charge to use it.

Being needlessly wasteful of battery power gets this app two stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buggy and a little bit rubbish, 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: KeepTrack Pro (App)
It's a good idea but the implementation could be better.
I used to get frequent Force Closes when starting the app, but once reopened it would work OK. Since the last update I can't open any of the data displays on any of my trackers, because it FCs every time.

It's a shame you can't just tap a calendar date to add an entry on that day as well.

Also it seems that if I'm tracking a cumulative number - such as time - adding another entry SUBTRACTS the second value from the first! Entering 40 for the first value and then adding another value of 15 means that for that day, the display shows 25 instead of 55. Why, I have no idea.

In conclusion, it was adequate but now I can't even use it at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best Music App on Android (so far), 1 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NodeBeat (App)
This is a lot of fun, and is mostly very slick. I've spent a lot of time getting lost in this app, trying different combinations, creating set ups and letting them play out.

There could be more options, like setting the volume of each generator, or allowing some to move, while others stay static, also individual speed settings would be great. Hopefully the author will consider such developments.

It does have a few flaws - the app doesn't retain some settings when it's started again - like shake to clear and the like. I imagine these will be fixed in no time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly Designed, 1 Dec. 2012

This review is from: 180 Ultra (App)
It just doesn't seem to work in the way that other "make things disappear" games do. Perhaps it's the rate of advancement, but before you know it, your game is over and it's not that satisfying.

It feels like a failed attempt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Remote Dektop app, 8 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Splashtop Remote Desktop (App)
I use it with my Nexus 7 and Windows 7 PC. I connect over my LAN and it displays my desktop in full resolution. I can scroll around it easily and open files and folders, launch programs, etc, easily.

The advantage of this app over the newer Splash top apps is that you don't have to creates Splashtop account to use it unless you're connecting over the internet. If you're only connecting on your LAN, you just make a security code, install the Splashtop server on the PC(s) you're using and connect.

Ignore the daft review that says this isn't a remote desktop app because you need to install Splashtop server - everything other than Windows remote desktop needs additional serving software of some sort.

In summary: for local area networking, you don't have to interact with Splashtop's servers at all, don't need an account, don't have to allow internet access. That's a plus in my book. And the software works smoothly and performs well - though, one slight criticism - it uses a lot of desktop processing power - as much as some games - to do its job. Maybe that's to be expected?

All in all, very good and worth getting over the newer 2 version because of the lack of need to connect to the internet.

It's a simple (?) Slider game, but it's done with such a huge amount of charm and polish that it really is a delight to play.

2.0 out of 5 stars not great, 31 Aug. 2012

A few questions, and some badly looped music - love the half-second pause in between - and you have a game that asks you questions and let's you answer them for a bit. Not exciting as there are no real stakes.

1.0 out of 5 stars crashy crashy freeze freeze, 31 Aug. 2012
Freezes up constantly, so you have to force quit it through the app's settings in order to get it to run again. Low resolution looks quite poor on the Nexus 7. It's a good game - I have it for the PC - but this port seems to have been done with no quality control. I would give the game 4 stars if it worked, but it doesn't, so it's a 1 from me.
