Amazon Fire stick – video streaming made simple

The 2017 version of the fire stick has a few surprises up its sleeve. As if a  library of movies to stream was not enough you can now find your favorite movie with your voice.

The fire stick remote now has a Alexa search button. You can also ask Alexa to dim the lights and lock the front door if you have some home automation in place.

(Note: Alexa is not yet officially launched in India, so India users can only search for movies, TV shows and apps)

There’s something about trees and nature that calms our minds. We walk through parks, grow plants in our baloney and now its time to bring that to our phones.

Eye Care Plus – better eyesight made achievable

Strengthening eyes could be easier if you knew what exercises to do. Eye care plus suggests exercises based on times like morning or evening. The gamified approach to building a eye exercise habit works well too.

This app has been caring for our eyes over the past week and we must say there is a slight difference in focus on nearby objects, psychological? not really sure but definitely seems to make a difference.

SimpleMind – the art of mind mapping

The mind is a curious place with thoughts on everything that makes us what we are. The idea of mind mapping is to note down important ones and keep adding related ideas, tasks, links and just about any material to it. Mastering mind maps is less of a science and more of an art that is built up over experience.

SimplyMind brings mind mapping to mobile phones. Nothing could be more convenient than capturing thoughts as they occur.

Do large screen phones mean more productivity?

We’ve been small screen fans for ages until one of us started commuting longer distances on public transport.

Though buses and trains take the traffic stress out of your life we are left with a small void of time to fill with something other than commute noise and radio chatter. Its the perfect time to reflect on the day and priorities, or take some time to chalk out  an outline for your next blog post.

If you happen to be serious enough you can also manage reviewing/reading documents, and even attend virtual meetings on the go. That’s what road warriors are all about.
