This App Gets Me Out of the Couch

Oh yeah! I’m not kidding!

It’s a simple app, but it really drags me out of my sedentary existence. Ha! I work on the computer all day long so yeah, I’m really so in need of getting up and getting going.

I’ve tried countless ways and motivations and I’ve also tried complicated apps, to no avail. I’ll be up and about when its new but end up slouching off again.

I’m blabbing about Noom Walk!! A simple pedometer that has now made me obsessed with reaching my daily ‘walk/steps’ goal.

Pedometer App

I tell you, I’ve used complicated apps with slews of features and they’ve never gotten me to move like this little pedometer has done. In fact, I’ve used the Noom Weight Loss app but found it to need to much attention, logs that I lost interest after a week.

Best of all, its FREE. And works awesome especially if you’re a beginner. Now I partner my walks with flow yoga and I can’t believe how much I’m gaining strength and toning.

Mobile Camera Lens for Samsung Galaxy Phones

As a blogger, I always have a camera with me. It’s a necessary thing to lug around. I used to bring a huge DLSR with me, but its just too heavy. I only bring it now when I go on travel. For everyday use, I use a compact camera and my phone.

Right now I’m using an S3 and a Galaxy Note 2 and it does take superb photos. I wanted to take it to the next level though so I won’t really need to lug around a DLSR when I travel. So I’m on the hunt for a mobile camera lens. I’m only featuring mobile camera lenses for Samsung Galaxy phones because that’s what I use. I’ll do a post for iPhones soon.

And I was surprised, there are lots of affordable options out there. Here’s just some camera lens kit for Galaxy I saw and on my ‘to check out list’:

Considering a Huawei Phone

For my mom that is.

I’m thinking of buying her a smartphone. And mind you, for a grandma she is techno savvy. She’s a gamer, on PC or in a console she can find her way. I think she is a much better gamer than me, and that’s one reason she gets along so well with my daughter. I suspect they talk all games every day.

Anyway, I’m thinking of getting her a smartphone so she can play games and also connect. It has to be big screened but nothing too pricey. She keeps a tight fist on her budget and would freak out if I spend a lot on something. Someone suggested a Huawei P1 Phone.

We looked it up in the nearest shop here, and it looks nice. Although I find the colors a bit washed  but it looked great. Anyone with experience using this? Any reviews?

Free Android Music Making Apps?

A year or two ago, Android didn’t have much in terms of music making apps. But now, the scene is changing. There are now loads of available music making apps, a lot of them paid. You can check this list for some of them – Best Android Music Making Apps in the World Today.

The reason I’m on the lookout for an Android music making app is that someone (my kiddo) is absolutely nutso about music. But she can be quite fickle too so I’d like her to try out free music making apps first before I plunge into buying paid apps. Buying lots of assorted paid apps isn’t easy as getting Cymbals & Gongs at WWBW, so if there are lite versions, I usually go for that first before buying the full version.

Free Android Music Making Apps

Here’s some free Android apps for making music you might wanna check out if you’re into music.

  • Caustic – a music creation tool inspired by rack-mount synthesizers / samplers rigs. Everything is real-time and optimized for mobile devices.
  • Androsynth – a full featured multi track audio composer. You can import audio files, slice them in samples and compose new music using those samples.
  • Musical Piano Free – A musical toolkit including instruments (grand piano, piano keyboard, drums), tools (metronome, pitch pipe), a game (piano practice), and more
  • Music Composition –  an excellent tool for music students, artists and singer song writers. Features  musical notation editor, Calculates the size of each measure and fills automatically, Change tempo, clef, key signature, time signature, keys and instruments, Playable with 128 different instruments (Piano, Organ, Guitar, Electric Guitar, Bass, Violin, Cello, Trumpet, Drum and more)
  • Music Composer Lite –  a simple MIDI music creation app that lets you play improvisational piano and compose a music composition simply by sliding around the screen of your device.
  • Ensemble Composer –  ‘ The most full-featured and easiest to use music notation editing software for Android devices.’
  • Satan – or Signal Applications To Any Network is a fully fledged musical sequencer studio for your smartphone, or tablet device! Inspired by an old sound tracker of the past, SATAN takes music production in to the portable future.
  • Etherophone – Turn your phone into a musical instrument! Etherophone is a theremin synthesizer. Just touch the screen to play: vertical position determines pitch and horizontal position determines volume.

There will be more so watch out for my occasional android app roundup..

A Budget Canon Camcorder

I’ve been mulling over this buying decision for about two weeks already. I’ve been planning to buy a camcorder since last year but I always end up postponing it. Mind you, this is not exactly necessary, more like an indulgence. I’d like a camcorder to just record some moments and some of our travels. I don’t want or need a fancy one, just something that works and within my budget range of $200-$350.

I’ve been looking up different camcorders and I have these two picks earmarked. The main thing now is deciding which one I want to buy.

[amazon_link id=”B0012SCVWO” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Canon FS100 Flash Memory Camcorder with 48x Advanced Zoom (Blue)[/amazon_link] [amazon_link id=”B0012SCVWO” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Canon FS100 Flash Memory Camcorder with 48x Advanced Zoom[/amazon_link]

 

[amazon_link id=”B006UMMP2I” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Canon Vixia HF R300 Full HD Flash Memory Camcorder with 51x Advanced Zoom[/amazon_link] [amazon_link id=”B006UMMP2I” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Canon Vixia HF R300 Full HD Flash Memory Camcorder with 51x Advanced Zoom[/amazon_link]

 

The main difference between the two is the price point and of course the more pricey one has more added features. I’m thinking this over, if I need the features or not. Otherwise, I would like to go for the first option. What do you think? Which one would you pick if it were you making the purchase decision.

Top Rated iPad Cases & Sleeves

This post is really for my sister (and those who share similar fates with her hahahaha). She is forever changing and changing her iPad cases and sleeves. I guess she uses it so often that she has to buy several of them at a time. She goes through it like its just some sort of toy.

I told her I’ll check out the top rated ones from Amazon, perhaps its high time she purchases one that would last long on her iPad.
