Apps That Will Make Your Life Easier

November 6, 2016 Paul 0

We are going to talk about two of the most popular note taking apps that you can find on your smartphone, sure to increase your productivity level up a few notches. Be it Android, iPhone, iPad or Windows 7, Evernote is available on almost all of the OS. It comes with the advantage of allowing users capture virtually whatever they want. To create notes has been oversimplified by Evernote – plus the note will support different types of media. This integrates into a part of a notepad.

 

 

What’s so new about the Evernote?main

 

You never would be tired of searching because searching on Evernote is really easy and convenient. Be it a hand written text inside an image, you can find it using Evernote. You will find variable options for entering text, photos, attachments; you can tell Evernote where you are currently located and you can enter calendar links, email and tags too.

 

 

Now what are tags? They are actually keywords which can be associated with the user created notes to be a connecting link to similar and related subjects. Thus comes in place the powerful search database which is always a single click away and this is made possible only with the ability of adding, removing tags whenever a note is created. Medical professions love this app for making work convenient and quicker.

 

 

What surprises the user is that Evernote has integral cloud sync, and the ability to access notes from anywhere. There are many applications for healthcare professionals, and it can successfully be used to store patient data. The sheer genius of Evernote is that all data we feed to it is properly organised, totally effective and highly productive, and that’s what makes it adaptable to the needs of almost any person’s individual requirements. Thus Evernote can prove to be useful for medical professionals by creating a searchable, organised place to put all our notes and thoughts.

 

 

What’s different with Skitch?skitch-evernote-logo-e1439811160198

 

Skitch, another great app comes into effect when used in conjunction with Evernote. In simple terms, it is a photo annotation tool. This is another product that had been launched by the makers of Evernote. Available on Mac, iPhone and Windows, it’s easy to start off. Your start can be a bare beginning like taking a photo, choosing one from the already uploaded files.

 

 

You can also start things off with a map or a web search. To give the teaching a jump start, you can add texts and highlights to the same. The menu is also very easy to go through and things are made even simpler with the navigable controls. It is too obvious to state that it is a very user friendly app.

 

 

You can create a highly efficient interface using a simple image along with the tags you added. It lets you open up an iOS map of the locality that makes it easy to locate hospitals in the locality. There is an auto save feature which directly transfers all the image annotations to the Evernote library.

 

 

Skitch is at best very simple and useful and it facilitates users to clip from maps from within the app. This along with Evernote can become a time saver for all medical professionals. Simplicity sometimes is the way to go about when it comes to apps helpful for medical professionals – skitch is an example.

The Best Multi-Platform Games of 2016

September 5, 2016 Paul 0

 

There was a time when a “multi-platform” release meant that a game would come out for all available platforms; Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo (including handheld) and PC. In recent years, because the Wii and Nintendo DS launched with non traditional control schemes (the latter also comparatively underpowered) true-multiformat development became impractical, so a multi-platform release has come to mean the two “serious” consoles and PC. Despite this shrinking of the term, 2016 continues to deliver some outstanding multi-platform releases, available on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4.

Overwatchoverwatch-share-3d5a268515283007bdf3452e877adac466d579f4b44abbd05aa0a98aba582eeaebc4541f1154e57ec5a43693345bebda953381a7b75b58adbd29d3f3eb439ad2


Overwatch is an insanely addictive team shooter that gives players the choice between over 20 unique and memorable characters. From a peace-loving combat droid to a Korea pro-gamer and an armour-clad geriatric knight, each character plays differently, meaning you’re sure to find a play-style that suits you, and must team up with friends and strangers to account for each character’s strengths and weaknesses. Blizzard Entertainment have even stated that all future downloadable content, including new characters and maps, will be entirely free. It’s easy to be dubious about a game with as much hype behind it as Overwatch, but it has lived up to expectations so far.

Final Fantasy XVFinal_Fantasy_XV_key_art;_characters_in_battle


Having been in development for over ten years, fans are ravenous for the release of the fifteenth numbered entry in the venerated Final Fantasy series. Featuring a Kingdom Heartsstyle fight system, battles are played out in real time and seamlessly integrated into the game, allowing for hectic and exciting battles to take place. Story is a vital part of any RPG and FFXV doesn’t look like it’s going to disappoint; players take the role of Prince Noctis, who, along with his friends (the game features a series first – an all male party) must travel across the land using a customizable car, and, in a nod to survival games, must eat and sleep in order to maintain optimum battle performance. With fan anticipation sky high, only time will tell if FFXV manages to meet expectations.

Hyper Light DrifterHLD_Screenshot_01_rise_1080

 

This stunning 2D action game is a love letter to 8 and 16-bit titles of the past and really has to be seen to be believed. The pixel art, somehow simultaneously simplistic and ultra detailed, is absolutely beautiful, and incredible music direction compliments it perfectly. The story has been compared to some of Studio Ghibli’s iconic titles, and those looking for old-school style challenges need look no further than the games tight learning curve. In an era where games are becoming increasingly similar, Hyper Light Drifter isn’t afraid to stand on its own two feet.

 

 

Dishonored 2dishonored-2-fb-share-8ef325c803


This sequel to 2012’s stealth action title sees players return to the dark world of The Outsider, this time letting players choose between returning protagonist Corvo Attano or the now grown up Princess Emily Kaldwin. Each character will have individual powers, and given the choice between high and low chaos, the separate characters further provide immense replay value. If this sequel can be as confident and fully realized as its predecessor then there can be no doubt that Dishonored 2 will be a stand out title of 2016.
