Boomerang, the email add-on that lets you control when to send email, is now a free full-featured email app on iOS. We've included the Android version in our Android download pack for years and the app started in 2010 as a Gmail add-on, so this has been a long time coming. The iOS version is in beta, according to a FAQ buried inside the app's settings menu.
One of the Pixel 2's most interesting features is Active Edge, which lets you launch Google Assistant by simply squeezing your smartphone. Unfortunately, Google made the annoying decision to lock this function to its AI assistant, but one developer has already found a way to get around the company's restrictions.
Even if you're not a freelancer or a "creative", you'll probably benefit from a page that lays out your accomplishments and not just your work history. If you ever want to give a talk, get quoted in an article, work a side hustle, start your own business, or just get a job offer, then you need a public portfolio.
Though weather forecasting is a notoriously inexact science, thanks to voice assistants, pop-up notifications and buzzing smartwatches, it's easier than ever to keep tabs on the day's weather (and dress accordingly). Of course, checking the truncated weather forecast on your phone might be convenient, but it could also mean you're losing out on valuable information that could help you deal with the heat, rain, or general mugginess outside. That's where desktop weather apps come in.
WhatsApp announced on Wednesday that it's adding live location sharing, making it easier to find your friends in real life with the Facebook-owned messaging app. It's also great for sharing your commute so people know when you'll arrive and that you're safe.
What operating system do you use? For some, that question may as well be posed in Latin or Sanskrit. For others, it's an invitation to have a heated debate about the benefits of GUI vs. command line, modern day UI vs. old school metaphor, the pros/cons of Windows 10, LAMP vs. IIS... the list goes on and on. For most, however, the answer will be a variation on Windows or Mac.
AFL fans have a pretty, uh, rocky, relationship with Telstra's AFL Live Pass. Compared to other livestreaming services, Live Pass is just a little backward.
In 2016, the service was okay, but in 2017, seemingly without warning, the size of the viewing screen was reduced. Fans were not happy. Concerns raised by the ACCC are now seeing Telstra offer refunds.
On the back of the news that Victoria will be banning plastic shopping bags, I wondered how much plastic is actually in the ocean. I always hear big, crazy numbers and I've certainly seen the pictures but what is the reality? The science? How does it affect ocean life?

Mac: Flexibits, creators of Lifehacker's favourite calendar app Fantastical, has released its command-line approach to contacts with Cardhop. This new contacts app is oriented around actions rather than your contacts database; you mainly use it by writing commands, kind of like talking to Siri. It's a potentially compelling interface -- if you can remember to use it.
In today's fast-paced world, staying on top of your daily to-dos is no easy feat. While tools like Google Calendar and Drive help organise your workload, having your tasks spread across multiple apps tends to make things slip through the cracks. That's where Moo.do Premium comes into play.
If you think back to your high school geometry class, you might remember that "If/Then" statements were used in solving mathematical proofs. But even if maths wasn't your thing, you actually use If/Then statements every day: "If it's raining outside, then I will bring an umbrella." Or, "If I eat this doughnut, then I will be very guilt- um, happy."
