Nuzzel Review: Don’t Miss the News on Twitter

Nuzzel iOS app Featured Image

Reading news is something I do everyday. I try not to miss out on anything at all, but let’s face it, it’s hard to read everything these days due to the huge amount of info and news being thrown at us each hour if not each minute.

People solved this by subscribing to the sites they like using RSS Services like InoReader, Feedja, FeedlyFeed Wrangler…etc, some people use apps that curate the news for them like: Flipboard, Pulse and SmartNews.
But there’s a problem with both of these options, RSS Services are not up to the second, and apps that curate the news for you, don’t always show you what you want or what’s relevant to you.

I solved this issue by using Twitter as a main source for news, it’s great, all my friends use it, many news site and news stations share their articles and breaking news on it, it’s perfect. But there’s also a tiny problem here, I follow 947 person on Twitter, I do my best to read all their tweets but sometimes things get out of hand, especially in case of breaking news or big evets like every time there’s an Apple event.

You can solve this problem in many ways, you can create lists and add group of people that you always want to keep an eye on, you can favorite tweets to read them later, and something I do all the time is to send any link I find interesting to Pocket.

That’s great and all but, at the end I’m only a human, and I need to sleep, this mean that I will lose about 6 to 7 hours of news each day, and since I live in Turkey and with the difference of time between Turkey and the United State I lose a good amount of news and sometimes its breaking news.

Here comes Nuzzel to the rescue:

MailDeck Review: A Gorgeous Looking Mail App for iOS

Since the day Mailbox arrived on iOS, I didn’t think that I would need another Mail App on iOS, that’s all changed when I started this website. I had to manage more emails coming my way and in order to do that I started the hunt for the perfect Email App on iOS that support IMAP.
Sadly Mailbox doesn’t support it yet, they told me that they would do it soon but until now there’s nothing.

Then I discovered MailDeck, a gorgeous looking app that support IMAP. The app is indescribable.

How To Sync Firefox Bookmarks With iPhone

Recently I wanted to try other web browsers on both OSX and iOS. There’s a lot of options out there, from Chrome, Firefox and Opera.

Here’s the top browsers that my readers use to visit this site:

  1. Chrome.
  2. Safari.
  3. Firefox.

The only challenge that I had is syncing my bookmarks from MacBook running Snow Leopard to my iPhone running iOS 7.1.2 and iPad running iOS 8.1. Safari has iCloud bookmark syncing but i can’t use it since i’m running SL, And Chrome (Dev Channel) is already my Browser of choice so I looked for something new.

Reddit acquires Alien Blue, Jase Morrissey joins Reddit

Reddit announced today that they acquired the pixel perfect Reddit client app Alien Blue and renaming it to Alien Blue – reddit official client. Along with this acquisition, Jase Morrissey – The App Developer – is joining the Reddit team and will continue developing his beloved app.

Reddit Alien Blue new iconNo major changes for the app itself except for a brand new icon that is similar to the Reddit official AMA app icon that I reviewed before.

Due to how the App Store app transfer works, old users need to redownload the app again, as for users who purchased the pro upgrade they need to purchase it again, but because this is Reddit and Reddit is awesome, they are making the pro upgrades free for an entire week. Reddit also said in it’s post that they are going to continue to work with developers who work on other Reddit 3rd party app.

Please make sure to export your setting from the old app an import it to the new app before deleting the old one.

Apple accidentally leaks iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3

Forget about today’s new security vulnerability named Poodle and forget about Google’s new Android OS named Lollipop, Apple today did a funnier thing than both of these names.

Apple leaked by “mistake” iOS 8.1 iPad user guide that include photos of the upcoming iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. The photos included in the user guide which were reported first by Mark Gurman from 9To5Mac shows that the both new iPads will include a Touch ID sensor.

So incase something bad happened in tomorrow’s Apple live event, you sure won’t miss out on anything, thanks to this “accidental leak”.
