Best podcast app – Pocket Casts


After using several podcast apps for about a year, I consider Pocket Casts to be the best podcast app on the App Store. It is better than what the competition has to offer. The app has a one-time fee of $3.99 UDS, but the other apps have subscription fees.

Pocket Cast has a beautiful design. It is very easy to use for a new podcast listener or for an enthusiast listener.

It is very easy to find the new podcast. Adding a new podcast to the main section of the app is very easy. The main section of the app is where you can listen to all your subscribed podcasts. I love the featured section. I have discovered a lot of new interesting podcasts from there. The feature section is curated by the Pocket Cast team and I recommend to visit this section of the app.

The best feature of the app is the cross-platform support. Pocket Cast sync between devices like a champ. I loved the web player. To access the web player, you need to pay a one-time fee of $9 USD. This will help to support the amazing team behind the app. To listen to a podcast on any computer, it is very simple. You need to log in the web player. The web player has a beautiful design and it is easy to use like the iOS app.


I recommend this app to the new, casual and hardcore podcasts listener. Pocket Cast has a well-designed interface for the iOS and web player. It is easy to use and has an excellent syncing ability.

You can check out the app on iOS and Android now.

Best app of 2016 – Gyroscope

A couple of weeks ago, I found Gyroscope, a health tracking app like no other. It integrates with several services to provide the most accurate report to the user. I strongly believe Gyroscope is the best app of 2016 and deserve to be on every phone. I tend to install a lot of apps, but I always end up deleting them. However, it was not the case for Gyroscope.

The app has a social part where the user can add their friends and compete with them even if they don’t use the same service that provides the health information. No other health tracking app offers to do that.

The app has the best UI design compared to any other health app with a clutter free and minimal design composed of a beautiful chart, card and summaries report.

Gyroscope can be connected to other services in order to have a better glimpse of your life. For example, it can be connected with services, such as Moves, Apple HealthKit, Rescue Time, Fitbit, Withings, Strava, Runkeeper, Instagram, Twitter, Jawbone, Google, Spotify, and Foursquare. I have never seen an app that connects with so many services easily.

When connected to other services, Gyroscope track steps, heart rate, location, time spend on the computer, running, cycling, workouts, and weight without the Pro version. With the Pro version, it can also track body fat, sleep, calories, music, meditation, and DNA.

The Pro version gives more information to the user such as a monthly report, annual report and much more. Here is everything the pro version offers.

Currently, I am using the free version of the service and I am planning to get an annual membership soon. The price varies on iOS and on the Gyroscope site. For the cheapest price, go to Gyroscope site which is

I would like Gyroscope to add a couple of features. The first one is a way to tell the app sick days. The second one is to add a way to grade your day and the final is a way to integrate with a journal app such as Day One.

I highly recommend the app to every person who wants to track their health and have an overview of their life.

You can check out the app on iOS now.

Must have app – Feelca B&W

Feelca B&W  released on October 14, 2016,  by IDEAMP Co., Ltd. on the AppStore is a beautiful app that helps create beautiful black and white pictures. The app is very easy to use and has a beautiful UX design.

The app developer has created this app so users can be able to take beautiful pictures like the famous photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson by choosing between one of the two exposures offered: 24 or 36.

I have been using the app since the release date. I don’t regret the 1.39$ CAD I paid. In fact, I personally believe they should charge more for the app.

I recommend every iOS user to download the app, especially if you are interested in photography.

Here are some pictures I took with the app.

Automate aspect of your life with IFTTT

The new App Icon

IFTTT is a free internet service created in 2010 that helps automate aspects of your life without doing the same boring step every time. I have been using IFTTT for a couple of years, it saved me time and helped me do things that I forget in my day to day life.

IFTTT is an abbreviation of “If This Then That”. A couple of days ago, IFTTT updated their app with a beautiful design, new app icon which is much better, simple and beautiful.The update brought the redesign of the Recipes (connected 2 services together)but with way more things to do. They are called Applets, it is easy to use ,manage, add new service and discover new Applets.

To add a new Applets, it is quite simple, you can search already made Applets or create your own.

To create a new Applets you just need to follow this simple step:

Firstly, go to the My Applets tabs on your iOS device ( I believe it is the same for Android devices) and tap the plus sign to the right top corner.

Secondly, by tapping you are granted with the “If This Then That” statement. For this example, I will create an Applets for if I post a new article for this website to tweet the URL. By tapping “this” I will choose the service WordPress and click on any new post.

Finally, I will click on “that” and chose Twitter and then tap post a tweet and then tap on the finish button and know I will never need to tweet the URL of any new post on this website. The app will do it for me and no need to worry no more.

One of the most useful Applets for me is the weather Applets.It sends me a notification every day at 7am for the weather. This is a quite simple Applets. There are Applets that will send you a notification on your phone if it will rain so that you don’t forget to bring an umbrella. No worry to open the weather app again to see the weather or to see if it will rain or not.

screen-shot-2016-11-04-at-4-30-07-pm_macbookgrey_frontAnother useful Applet for me is the Stock Applet. With the new update, I don’t need to open my stock app to see the closing price of the stock that I follow. No more waiting for the Stock app to open load and then see the closing price of a stock that I follow. With this Applet, I do nothing and I get the notification on my phone.

For me, IFTTT app is a must and everyone should install it. It will help with day to day use and for the things that need a particular step that you forget to do or don’t want to do.

Best game – Mekorama

Screen Shot 2016-05-17 at 8.53.49 AMMekorama is not only the best puzzle game on iOS, it is the best game on any mobile device that I have used. The app is extremely well done with beautiful animation and the gameplay is awesome. Mekorame is better than Monument Valley, which is an awesome puzzle game, for a couple of reasons. The game has more levels than Monument Valley. You can import levels created by other people from the web and you can create your own level.

I love how the creator has implanted the in-app purchases. The game is free on the AppStore and the Google Play. Though, if you want to support the creator, which you should because it is the best game on any handheld device, you can pay what you want by choosing one of the six prices that are offered. This in-app purchases also unlocks hits for all 50 levels that are build in the game.

Mekorama will be a game that will stay on my home screen for a long time and I am curious what Martin Magni‘s next project will be.

Stock App – Yahoo! Finance


After using several Stock apps for the couples of months, I found Yahoo! Finance to be the best stock app in the App Store. Yahoo! Finance is better than Stock Tracker which is one of the top stock market apps on the App Store. Yahoo! Finance has a better design than Stock Tracker which is ugly and a better design than Apple own stock app, by the way, iOS native stocks app is powered by Yahoo! Finance. Yahoo! Finance is also better than Stock Touch which is a paid app in the App Store because it takes less time to get the information of a company compared to Stock Touch.

The app is divided into three sections. The first one is watchlist where you can track the stock price of companies that are in the NYSE and NASDAQ in real time and the price of a company listed on the TSX with a delay of a couple of minutes. I don’t know if there is a delay for the other major stock exchanges in the app. You can also add in this section you hold in the app to track your daily gains and your total gains. To add your holding it’s quite simple, just up the price you paid, the numbers of share you own and your trade date.You can also have different watch lists and you can rename them whatever you want to be more efficient. Under the watchlist table, there is news about all companies you follow.

Every company that is listed have their own page with a graph to see the price through time, the company history and all the information such as previously closed, open, low, high, market cap and mush more. They also have a newsfeed for the company coming from different media companies.

In the news section, you have news aggregating from differents website such as Yahoo! Finance, Reuters, Business Insider, CNBSThe Motley Fool and mush more. I don’t personally use this part of the app because I read the news about the company I follow on the page or in the watchlist section. You kind also find adds thought the app where they are news section. They are not that annoying compared to other stock apps.

3 Market

In the market section, there is 3 sections for all the major market (US, Europe, Asia) and an overview of all the market moves, top gainers, top losers, bonds, currencies, commodities, mutual fund and EFTs for all tree market. In this compartment, I come to see mostly the market movers, top gainers, top losers.

Yahoo! Finance is the best stock app because it has a beautiful design with beautiful graphs, animation, a nice font. Yahoo! Finance compare to other app has a life it has colors! It makes you want’s to check the stock market more often. It is easier to use, it has less crap than the competition. Yahoo! Finance, is the best app in the App Store. The only thing that I would like to change is to bring the real-time price for companies listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
