The Huawei Nexus 6P quickly became my favourite Android device of the year. It had a great camera, a improved version of Android that brought great battery life, and to round it off it was wrapped up in a solid metal body.

Favourite Apps of 2015

As 2015 comes to a close, it’s that time of year for the annual “best of …” or “favourite thing of 2015.”

This post will be focusing on the apps that I used the most this year, so much that I consider them my favourite apps of 2015. Some of these apps might not have come out in 2015 but some have been significantly since last year’s post: Favourite Apps of 2014.

Some of these apps are just available on only one platform (just Android or just iOS) but some of them are multiplatform in which they are on both Android and iOS and have a web app as well.

The links to download these apps will be in the form of “Get on Google Play” or “Get it on the App Store” pictures after each app description.

Happy 4th Birthday, Google+

It has been four years since Google first introduced their own social network, Google+. When it first launched, it was invite-only (I was one of the lucky ones who got to be apart of the invite-only beta) then it eventually became necessary to have a Google+ account if you used any of Google’s services.

Happy 10th Birthday to Reddit

Exactly 10 years ago today (June 23rd, 2005) is when “the front page of the internet” was first launched. If you’re a redditor (like myself) then you’ll know that today would be considered as reddit’s cake day.

After the video, Tim Cook came on stage but he did things a bit different this year. He did not talk about all the record breaking numbers that Apple has achieved over the last year, he saved those for later on.
