data-layout=\"button_count\" data-action=\"like\" data-share=\"false\"></div></div></div><h2>For Android</h2>\n<p>On Android devices, it is extremely easy to restrict microphone access to multiple apps through the Settings app. To do this, users first need to go to their<em> Settings app, Apps tab, and then select the different apps that they would like to limit access to</em>. For example, users can select Facebook to see which permissions have been granted to the app and then limit what it has access to so that it does not listen in on conversations. From there, users are also able to <em>limit other access points such as the camera or location services</em> if they are not essential to the app. For those who wish to increase the privacy on their device by stopping apps from being able to access the microphone and potentially listen in on conversations to display targeted ads, this method is able to quickly stop the different apps from having this level of access.</p>\n<h2>For iOS</h2>\n<p>For iOS devices, it is just as easy to restrict the access of the microphone to apps such as Facebook through the Settings app. With this, users need to first go to into their <em>Settings app</em> and then <em>scroll down until they find the app that they want to restrict access to</em>. In this case, users would scroll down until they get to the Facebook app and then click on it. From there, users can see exactly what kind of access a particular app has so that it can be restricted if it is not essential to the performance. For example, the <em>Facebook app may have access to the microphone, the GPS, and camera at which point users would be able to select which one they want to restrict</em>. With this, users can effectively stop apps from having too much access to the phone to ensure the greatest degree of privacy.</p>\n<p>A tip with regards to limiting microphone access is to ensure users review what permissions they are giving to the different apps that are installed. Often, users do not carefully read what the app has access to and so they give access to all of the requested functions without knowing what the consequences are. Therefore, it is highly recommended that users always <strong>review the permissions that are requested when installing an app</strong> instead of simply agreeing without reading.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FiRFDFM4qo\">How to Disable Microphones to Prevent Facebook Google and Apps from Spying</a></h4>\n<p>For more details on any of the ideas or products visit: https://techwellness.com/products/creepblockers-webcam-covers-cyber-security-for-all-devices Let&#8217;s Be Social: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/techwellness/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/techwellness/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/tech__wellness Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/techwellness/pins/</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<p>As an increasing number of people are concerned about the access that apps have on their mobile phone, the methods listed in this article are able to restrict different kinds of permissions that the apps have such as to the microphone.

data-layout=\"button_count\" data-action=\"like\" data-share=\"false\"></div></div></div><h2>For iPhone Users</h2>\n<p>For iPhone users, checking the health of the battery is extremely easy as Apple has introduced a new tool which helps to check the health without the need for third-party tools. With this, users can go into their Settings app and then Battery where they have the option to display the battery percentage or activate Low Power Mode to optimize battery life at the expense of performance. In the Battery Health (Beta) tab, users can see exactly what the Maximum Capacity for their battery is to evaluate the power relative to a new battery. For example, if the maximum capacity of the battery is only 90%, then at full charge the battery is only 90% of what a new battery could hold. However, this feature is still in Beta and is only available for certain iPhone versions. For those who are not on this iPhone version, users are able to download a third-party app that is able to display this information which is mentioned below.</p>\n<h3>Battery Life &#8211; check runtimes (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/battery-life-check-runtimes/id1080930585?mt=8\">iOS</a>)</h3>\n<p>For those with an iPhone that does not come with the Battery Health (Beta) option, Battery Life is an app that can be downloaded to perform many of the same functions and even more. For example, users are able to see the capacity of the battery and how much a full charge would be relative to this amount. Furthermore, users can see the runtime of different services on the phone such as 3G Talk Time and LTE Browsing so that they can tell which services are running the most batteries and for how long. In being able to see the different data through the app, those without the Battery Health (Beta) feature on the iPhone can get the information about the capacity of their battery.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 1080930585) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-821433d220582c38933ce4e809e0465a appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fbattery-life-check-runtimes%2Fid1080930585%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Battery Life - check runtimes\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/battery-life-check-runtimes/id1080930585?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is3-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple128/v4/39/bb/12/39bb12f0-e32d-6c36-fe42-1ad6db1405bb/AppIcon-1x_U007emarketing-85-220-0-6.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"Battery Life - check runtimes\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/battery-life-check-runtimes/id1080930585?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-821433d220582c38933ce4e809e0465a .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-821433d220582c38933ce4e809e0465a .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/battery-life-check-runtimes/id1080930585?mt=8\" title=\"Battery Life - check runtimes\" class=\"apptitle\">Battery Life - check runtimes</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/rbt-digital-llc/id1208547221?mt=8\">RBT Digital LLC</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"4.6 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars45\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h2>For Android</h2>\n<p>Android devices do not have a built in feature that allows users to see their battery life such as with the iPhone but are able to download third-party apps which help to show the battery capacity. AccuBattery (<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digibites.accubattery&amp;hl=en\">Android</a>) is an app that not only detects the battery capacity of the Android device and displays it, but also has several different tools which help to prevent instances of overcharging that can lead to a deteriorating battery. For example, if a battery is fully charged, it is recommended that users stop charging their phone otherwise it could possibly damage the capacity. With this, the app has an alarm that notifiesusers that the charge is complete. Furthermore, there are other insights that are offered through AccuBattery such as charge speed, charge history, and apps that have taken up the most batteries so that users know to limit usage of these tools. With the combination of these functions, AccuBattery is one of the best apps that can be used by Android users to evaluate battery performance and capacity as well as a range of other metrics.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.digibites.accubattery) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-ebffc6f71e770bb64c0c95af4a0ac973 googleplay colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.digibites.accubattery&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Accu​Battery\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digibites.accubattery\"><img src=\"//lh3.googleusercontent.com/RntdG3YJNFXq3V2FZn8aOU2hPqyPqwXG-cr7_HBcjMjDGcMTVg9AHxkiP3s3LkXUR_s=s180\" alt=\"Accu​Battery\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digibites.accubattery\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-ebffc6f71e770bb64c0c95af4a0ac973 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-ebffc6f71e770bb64c0c95af4a0ac973 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digibites.accubattery\" title=\"Accu​Battery\" class=\"apptitle\">Accu​Battery</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/dev?id=6700229384117889767\">Digibites</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<p>As the battery percentage that is shown on the phone is often misleading as the battery capacity is lower than what it was when it was brand new, users are now able to tell what their battery capacity really is with these tools. From built-in functions on the iPhone which display this information to third-party apps that perform the same function on Android devices, this article shows the different tools available to display the true capacity.</p>\n<p>An additional tip that can be used to ensure that the capacity of battery does not deteriorate over a long period of time is Battery Doctor-Battery Life Saver &amp; Battery Cooler (<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ijinshan.kbatterydoctor_en&amp;hl=en\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>) which is one of the best tools designed to help prolong battery life and capacity. With the app, users are able to control different settings that affect battery performance to include different chagrining times and charging cycles depending on what is best for the device. Furthermore, users can toggle different options that optimize battery performance and phone temperature so that it does not overheat by closing the apps that are taking the most batteries. As few built-in features are made available for battery maintenance on phones coupled with the fact that fewer and fewer phones are built to be replaceable with new batteries easily, this tool is highly recommended to ensure that the battery is healthy and can last a longer period of time.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.ijinshan.kbatterydoctor_en) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-0445a372223bda821cdbc34b8956dc61 googleplay colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.ijinshan.kbatterydoctor_en&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Battery Doctor-Battery Life Saver &amp; Battery Cooler\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ijinshan.kbatterydoctor_en\"><img src=\"//lh3.ggpht.com/cz9lA4HH9JvO9JVAcINIO68pTdaSc3whWwtAUsuOnVUbaY-CUf6hIaYbrnPOE4Ma6A=s180\" alt=\"Battery Doctor-Battery Life Saver &amp; Battery Cooler\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ijinshan.kbatterydoctor_en\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-0445a372223bda821cdbc34b8956dc61 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-0445a372223bda821cdbc34b8956dc61 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ijinshan.kbatterydoctor_en\" title=\"Battery Doctor-Battery Life Saver &amp; Battery Cooler\" class=\"apptitle\">Battery Doctor-Battery Life Saver &amp; Battery Cooler</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Cheetah+Mobile+Inc.+%28NYSE:+CMCM%29\">Cheetah Mobile Inc.

have a myriad of heroes along the top that corresponds to your ball colors. Also, there are monsters that keep appearing. Huh&#8230; weird.</p>\n<p>After a few rounds of normal Bejewelled play, you might realise that this isn&#8217;t just a basic game of bejeweled, but in fact an in-depth adventure RPG.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">After a few rounds of normal Bejewelled play, you might realise that this isn't just a basic game of bejeweled, but in fact an in-depth adventure RPG.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>Each level of the progressively more difficult story, you fight a different variety of monsters, culminating in the final boss. You deal damage and interact with the monsters through up to 5 Heroes, each of which is prescribed a specific colour that matches that of the available balls in the bejeweled game below.</p>\n<p>When you manage to connect a ball to one of similar colouring, any hero of that colour will attack and deal damage.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/RECYr7gmMUA\">YouTube</a></h4>\n<p>No Description</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<p>However, they’re not limited specifically to dealing damage – each colour also has a specific effect that is applied. Red appears to deal extra damage, Yellow allows you to gain some damage reflection, Green adds a shield to protect your health bar and Blue actually heals you.</p>\n<p>This means that, while what colour is available to you is predetermined by the game; you are able to create different effects based on what colours you manage to connect.  Alongside that, different characters have special effects depending on if you can hit up to five bubbles at once. For example, red characters are able to damage all enemies at the same time.</p>\n<p>This means that it is always to your benefit to hit as many bubbles as possible to affect the battlefield as much as possible.</p>\n<p>Considering it’s just a pretty basic bejewelled game at the bottom, it is surprising how much you can feel motivated to do well, considering the difficulty of the fights on the top of the screen. Even just from the beginning, the pacing feels difficult and challenging, allowing you to understandably need to prepare and pace yourself well to not die horribly to a dragon.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">Even just from the beginning, the pacing feels difficult and challenging, allowing you to understandably need to prepare and pace yourself well to not die horribly to a dragon.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>The loot system for Lightslinger feels somewhat confusing, however, as each enemy has a chance to drop a chest that contains loot you don’t really understand or seemingly need. In between levels you can level up your characters or improve their abilities, but the actual loot gained from the fights seems inconsequential – likely it has some grander purpose, but upon immediate receipt of the item, you are left with no real idea of what this item is, leaving you confused and a little annoyed.</p>\n<p>Lightslinger combines an elemental, bejewelled-style puzzle game with an adventure RPG system that captivates you sufficiently to keep going. There is strong impetus to do well, as well as a myriad of additional effects and party combinations you can include to alter the playing field.</p>\n<p>Lightslinger Heroes manages to turn a simplistic concept and add in other elements to make it something pretty special. Not amazing, mind you, but special enough to play a decent amount.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.skybornegames.battlepop) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-a0bee697546db1bbdbecc8195fd370b2 googleplay colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.skybornegames.battlepop&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"LightSlinger Heroes: Puzzle RPG\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.skybornegames.battlepop\"><img src=\"//lh3.googleusercontent.com/PtYdhQTm1JmSfwzCaXJLqGSSget5j4YrfanAssSELM9DmKh45YAneycOmdmnHYAPlxA=s180\" alt=\"LightSlinger Heroes: Puzzle RPG\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.skybornegames.battlepop\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-a0bee697546db1bbdbecc8195fd370b2 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-a0bee697546db1bbdbecc8195fd370b2 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.skybornegames.battlepop\" title=\"LightSlinger Heroes: Puzzle RPG\" class=\"apptitle\">LightSlinger Heroes: Puzzle RPG</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Skyborne+Games+Inc\">Skyborne Games Inc</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 1106212569) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-d924cec2ce6c4bcf74ecb950f0519293 appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Flightslinger-heroes%2Fid1106212569%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"LightSlinger Heroes\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lightslinger-heroes/id1106212569?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is1-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple118/v4/6b/d2/2c/6bd22c4b-9ea6-1e49-05f0-859b347d1d9d/AppIcon-1x_U007emarketing-85-220-0-9.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"LightSlinger Heroes\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lightslinger-heroes/id1106212569?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-d924cec2ce6c4bcf74ecb950f0519293 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-d924cec2ce6c4bcf74ecb950f0519293 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lightslinger-heroes/id1106212569?mt=8\" title=\"LightSlinger Heroes\" class=\"apptitle\">LightSlinger Heroes</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/skyborne-games-inc/id1065670450?mt=8\">Skyborne Games Inc</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"4.6 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars45\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n"},"date":"2018-05-22T15:38:11","date_gmt":"2018-05-22T15:38:11","excerpt":{"protected":false,"rendered":"<p>Lightslinger Heroes is a bejeweled game mixed somehow with an adventure RPG that manages to make an actually quite fun game.</p>\n"},"featured_media":80607,"format":"standard","guid":{"rendered":"https://appolicious.com/?p=80554"},"id":80554,"link":"https://backend.appolicious.com/lightslinger-heroes-bejewelled-rpg-combined/","modified":"2018-05-22T15:38:11","modified_gmt":"2018-05-22T15:38:11","ping_status":"open","slug":"lightslinger-heroes-bejewelled-rpg-combined","status":"publish","sticky":false,"template":"","title":{"rendered":"Lightslinger Heroes &#8211; Bejewelled &amp; RPG Combined"},"type":"post"}},{"authorDescription":"Sam is a YouTuber, Streamer &amp;amp;amp; Games Journalist.

their device wirelessly as all that is required is to buy a wireless charging pad without any additional modifications. Given that so many wireless charging pads are available to be purchased online, the price can range from $10-$50 depending on the quality and brand of the charger. For example, the <a href=\"https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Certified-Wireless-Charger-Pad/dp/B00UCZGS6S/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Samsung Qi Charger Pad</a> is a device that lets users charge either their iOS or Android device by simply placing the phone onto the pad. At only $20, users can charge with more confidence as the cord would never break or become less efficient while the pad also has a light indicator to let the user know what percentage their phone battery is at. As a universal charging device that is able to accommodate any device that has wireless charging enabled, the Samsung Qi Charger Pad is a great tool for moving from a corded charging system to one that is wireless.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7GZjDKS6E0\">Samsung Qi Wireless Charging Pad for Galaxy S6 Review</a></h4>\n<p>Beau HD takes a look at the official black sapphire wireless charging pad for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.

However, in order to do this, users need to purchase additional hardware for their device such as the <a href=\"https://www.gearbest.com/power-banks/pp_582703.html\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Charger Receiver</a> for Android devices or the <a href=\"https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Qi-Wireless-Charger-Receiver-Charging-Adapter-Receptor-micro-USB-for-iPhone-5-6-6s-plus-type/32843392665.html\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Qi Wireless Charging Receiver Charger</a> for iOS devices. With these receivers, users plug one end into their device while the other end is placed flat on the back side. The receivers are so thin that users would not be affected with the usability of the overall device as the physical profile is so thin. With this setup, users are then able to place their device on a wireless charging pad such as the Samsung Qi Charger Pad to charge the device without a cord. While the cost to enable wireless charging may be slightly higher for devices that do not enable for wireless charging by default, the long-run costs associated with replacing multiple cords does not surpass that of the receiver and pad, making it a more economical and convenient solution.</p>\n<p>For those who are looking for wireless charging solutions that deviate from traditional charging cords, this article offers the different solutions available for the mobile device.

data-action=\"like\" data-share=\"false\"></div></div></div><h3>For iOS Devices</h3>\n<p>One of the most common tools that is used on the iPhone is iMessages which sends texts and also displays the read receipts. However, this can be turned off quite simply so that the sender of a message is not notified once the user has read their message. In order to do this, users must first go into their <em>Settings app, Messages, and then toggle the Send Read Receipts button</em>. Once these steps have been taken, the sender of a message will no longer see that a user has read their message once they have. While Android devices do not have read receipts for the texts that are sent on the default texting app, this is not applicable to non-iOS devices.</p>\n<h3>For WhatsApp</h3>\n<p>For those who are looking to remove the read receipt of messages that are sent through the WhatsApp app, users are able to do so right on the app. In order to deactivate this feature, users first need to open their WhatsApp application, click the three vertical circles on the top right side of the screen, and then select <em>Settings</em>. From there, <em>Accounts</em> need to be selected and then <em>Privacy</em>. From the privacy screen, the <em>Read Receipts option can be switched on or off</em> depending on the preferences of the user. If the box remains unticked, the sender of a message will not be notified of when the receiver has actually read the message but instead only know that the message has been delivered. Furthermore, the toggling of the settings is applicable to both the iOS and Android versions of WhatsApp to simplify the process.</p>\n<h3>Facebook Messenger</h3>\n<p>Although the Facebook Messenger app does not have specific settings which users are able to stop the read receipts from occurring, a trick that lets users read messages without sending an actual receipt is to simply <em>pull down on the top of the screen or the pull down menu at which point users can preview the message without the app actually recognizing this as read</em>. In doing so, users are able to read entire messages that have been sent through Facebook without sending the read receipt although a drawback to this method is that users are not able to reply to the messages but can simply only read it without having the sender see the receipt.

data-colorscheme=\"light\" data-layout=\"button_count\" data-action=\"like\" data-share=\"false\"></div></div></div><p>In honor of #FoodAllergyAwarenessWeek, I set out to review the best mobile apps for people like myself who suffer from severe food allergies. It&#8217;s a near-invisible but deeply troubling problem that&#8217;s unfortunately growing in prominence over the past two decades. As such, you&#8217;d think in a market full of niche apps <strong>so</strong> wide that we have <a href=\"https://backend.appolicious.com/augmenting-your-reality-holo-with-arkit-interview/\">holograms</a> and <a href=\"https://backend.appolicious.com/the-best-meditation-apps-you-should-have-on-your-iphone-to-find-your-peace-of-mind/\">meditation guidance</a>&#8230; that you&#8217;d figure we have plenty great food allergy apps, right?</p>\n<p>You&#8217;d be wrong.</p>\n<p>I downloaded some of the reportedly best apps for someone with my condition, and here&#8217;s what I found. I&#8217;ve included both two that you should absolutely avoid, and the two most useful apps I discovered.</p>\n<h2><strong>The Worst:</strong></h2>\n<h3>For Kids &#8212; <em>Allergy Reality</em></h3>\n<p>This is one of several apps that aims to educate your whole family about what is and isn&#8217;t safe to eat. It does this with a series of mini-games with varying amounts of relevance, with the best being the simple act of asking players to pick out what food is or isn&#8217;t safe based on their allergy, while the worst is an infuriating matching game more likely to annoy a child than inform them.</p>\n<p>Then there&#8217;s the one asking kids to spell out an allergen&#8217;s name in a reversed form of hangman. Nevermind most of the children who will use this app won&#8217;t know how to spell &#8220;BRAZILIAN NUTS&#8221; and also for the record, they&#8217;re referred to typically as just &#8220;Brazil Nuts&#8221;.</p>\n<p>To be fair, I discovered another good one where the player has to pick out from what ingredients weren&#8217;t safe from an ingredient list on the back of a box, but there&#8217;s something you may be noticing &#8211; the best mini-games available are things you could <em>just do at home with actual food products</em>. The rest of the mini-games border on bizarre and outright ill-conceived. There&#8217;s no relevant lesson here that necessitates downloading the app. But hey, it&#8217;s got a theme song and some really strange-yet-boring mini-games, and apparently that&#8217;s warranted it being a popular download.</p>\n<h3>For Adults &#8212; <em>Spokin</em></h3>\n<p>Did you need a new social media platform that&#8217;s really hard to navigate, basically just doubles as an ad platform for a few (your mileage may vary, I saw mostly the same one over and over again) allergen-free brands? I didn&#8217;t, but apparently somebody thought we needed one. It seems no one told the developers of <em>Spokin</em> that there&#8217;s already dozens of Facebook groups dedicated to this. While there&#8217;s clearly good intentions behind this one, it&#8217;s only slightly less irrelevant than <em>Allergy Reality</em>.</p>\n<h2><strong>The Best:</strong></h2>\n<h3>For Kids &#8212; <em>Wizdy Diner</em></h3>\n<p>Apparently odd names are just a rule of thumb for allergy apps, but at least<em> Wizdy</em> offers a solid effort when it comes to conveying how easily allergens can slip in when you&#8217;re eating out at a restaurant. The core gameplay is a typical <em>Diner Dash</em> clone, except now you have to make sure to catch every person&#8217;s allergens before telling the chef what to cook up. The parade of customers gets faster and faster, increasing the odds some of your customers might be sent to the hospital if you aren&#8217;t careful. Along the way, you upgrade your diner and have to choose what food you have on offer &#8211; giving kids a light bit of management, in addition to consequences for if they don&#8217;t have allergen-friendly food on the menu.</p>\n<p>The game itself is basic, but achieves its goals better than any other child-friendly app that I tried. It&#8217;s genuinely possible to give your customers the wrong food order a few times, and the gravity of your actions &#8211; while not as severe as they would be in real life &#8211; are made clear. There&#8217;s even a secondary mini-game on the main menu about educating kids how to use an epinephrine shot. It&#8217;s not the most<em> exciting</em> game, but it translates the risks of food allergies at restaurants with the clear, easily understood language of gameplay mechanics. Edutainment done right.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 1059091444?ls=1&amp;mt=8) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fwizdy-diner-food-allergy-game%2Fid1059091444%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wizdy-diner-food-allergy-game/id1059091444?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is4-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple118/v4/6d/98/99/6d9899b3-23d6-183f-0e2a-c6f0d5ca2ec0/mzl.ojuiablb.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wizdy-diner-food-allergy-game/id1059091444?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wizdy-diner-food-allergy-game/id1059091444?mt=8\" title=\"Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game\" class=\"apptitle\">Wizdy Diner: Food allergy game</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/lifeguard-games-inc/id819845868?mt=8\">LifeGuard Games, Inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-8a15fd8b4fc1994b5fb2221e529aa8c1 googleplay colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid\"><img src=\"//lh3.googleusercontent.com/HNk0uXtkknLuSGcTwvBEoX414xdlx2tmQCCsh0Iu_CDtK6U-AwYDX10arff6C7GOyg=s180\" alt=\"Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-8a15fd8b4fc1994b5fb2221e529aa8c1 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-8a15fd8b4fc1994b5fb2221e529aa8c1 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LifeGuardGames.FoodAllergyAndroid\" title=\"Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game\" class=\"apptitle\">Wizdy Diner: Food Allergy Game</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=LifeGuard+Games,+Inc.\">LifeGuard Games, Inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free<sup>+</sup></span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<h3>For Adults &#8212; <em>ipiit: The Food Ambassador</em></h3>\n<p>Yes, that&#8217;s actually it&#8217;s name, but <em>ipiit</em> is one of the more useful apps available. It&#8217;s a barcode scanner that can quickly inform you about many common products, and is supported in part by a public database that its users grow by taking pictures of products. The scanner function works fine so long as it knows the product, and if it doesn&#8217;t, you can easily take a few pictures and send it off to the app&#8217;s developers. It&#8217;s a brilliant use of crowd-sourcing that makes perfect sense. You can even specify what your allergen is &#8211; but that&#8217;s where things go downhill for an otherwise solid app.</p>\n<p>You see,<em> ipiit</em>, in all its unpronounceable wisdom, doesn&#8217;t feature support for all top 8 major allergens. It can tell you if the food has almonds or gluten, but there&#8217;s a laundry list of allergens that need added, and clearly the developers know this because there&#8217;s already an automated list for requested allergens. Now, I understand that in this case, it&#8217;s a daunting task to keep up with all the allergens in food, but the top 8 should all be in there. By offering such a narrow scope, <em>ipiit</em> feels more like a band-aid in its current state, which is a waste considering all the effort put in. It might spare you one or two phone calls at the grocery store when researching a product on the shelf, but it most certainly needs to grow if someone outside of its current allergen listings is ever to use it. It&#8217;s a great app, but there&#8217;s way too much missing here.</p>\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 536930786?mt=8) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-46935692acebb3817389f62c7f6487b2 appstore colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets%2Fid536930786%3Fmt%3D8&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"ipiit - Grocery Scanner for Food Allergies &amp; Diets\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets/id536930786?mt=8\"><img src=\"//is5-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple127/v4/b6/c0/fa/b6c0faa9-7d3e-a7b1-7141-9fca5949c9a7/mzl.ggvqgstb.png/246x0w.jpg\" alt=\"ipiit - Grocery Scanner for Food Allergies &amp; Diets\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets/id536930786?mt=8\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-46935692acebb3817389f62c7f6487b2 .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-46935692acebb3817389f62c7f6487b2 .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets/id536930786?mt=8\" title=\"ipiit - Grocery Scanner for Food Allergies &amp; Diets\" class=\"apptitle\">ipiit - Grocery Scanner for Food Allergies & Diets</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/ipiit-inc/id536930889?mt=8\">ipiit, inc.</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free</span> <div title=\"4.1 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars40\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.ipiit.ipiit&amp;hl=en_US) -->\n<div class=\"wpappbox wpappbox-30e9bf82c9edf9049a203895b6ac7a6b googleplay colorful simple\">\n\t<div class=\"qrcode\"><img src=\"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.ipiit.ipiit&chs=200x200&chld=L|0\" alt=\"ipiit - Scan Food Ingredients\" /></div>\n\t<div class=\"appicon\">\n\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ipiit.ipiit\"><img src=\"//lh3.ggpht.com/dLhoKPOMjrLEVUYHMOyBvIYcgqg3L5JsSvS7Sakc0Ec0EsjmZSOXY6lXpxLg8SD6UDY=s180\" alt=\"ipiit - Scan Food Ingredients\" /></a>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"applinks\">\n\t\t<div class=\"appbuttons\">\n\t\t\t<a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ipiit.ipiit\">Download</a>\n\t\t\t<span onMouseOver=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-30e9bf82c9edf9049a203895b6ac7a6b .qrcode').show();\" onMouseOut=\"jQuery('.wpappbox-30e9bf82c9edf9049a203895b6ac7a6b .qrcode').hide();\">QR-Code</span>\n\t\t</div>\n\t</div>\n\t<div class=\"appdetails\">\n\t\t<div class=\"apptitle\"><a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ipiit.ipiit\" title=\"ipiit - Scan Food Ingredients\" class=\"apptitle\">ipiit - Scan Food Ingredients</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"developer\">Developer: <a target=\"_blank\" rel=\"nofollow\" href=\"https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=ipiit\">ipiit</a></div>\n\t\t<div class=\"price\"><span>Price: Free</span> <div title=\"0 of 5 stars\" class=\"rating-stars stars-colorful stars00\"></div></div>\n\t</div>\n</div><!-- /WP-Appbox -->\n<p>Now, I want to be clear that these aren&#8217;t only the apps I tried, they&#8217;re just the most notable. A lot of the apps I tried were either a mediocre alternative of one of the apps listed above, or ineffectual at helping with the realities someone with food allergies faces. As food allergies fast become one of the biggest medical issues of our generation, but we can and should be trying to make things easier for those that suffer from them. While there are social circles and websites that help, that doesn&#8217;t mean mobile apps shouldn&#8217;t be offering decent alternatives. We need to be able to find a restaurant that&#8217;s safe to eat at, if there&#8217;s been cross-contamination alerts or ingredient changes in food, and most importantly of all &#8211; to know if a product is safe regardless of when customer service hours for the manufacturer run. These are basic quality of life needs that developers can help ease. I hope more answer the call, and present better options for our peers, and the generations to come.</p>\n<p>If you&#8217;ve heard of any great allergy apps we missed, be sure to let us know <a href=\"https://twitter.com/appolicious?lang=en\">@Appolicious</a>!</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n"},"date":"2018-05-18T01:46:02","date_gmt":"2018-05-18T01:46:02","excerpt":{"protected":false,"rendered":"<p>In a world full of life threatening food allergies, there should be better apps for families and allergic adults to rely on.</p>\n"},"featured_media":80498,"format":"standard","guid":{"rendered":"https://appolicious.com/?p=80307"},"id":80307,"link":"https://backend.appolicious.com/the-quest-for-quality-food-allergy-apps-foodallergyawarenessweek/","modified":"2018-05-18T01:46:02","modified_gmt":"2018-05-18T01:46:02","ping_status":"open","slug":"the-quest-for-quality-food-allergy-apps-foodallergyawarenessweek","status":"publish","sticky":false,"template":"","title":{"rendered":"The Quest for Quality Food Allergy Apps &#8211; #FoodAllergyAwarenessWeek"},"type":"post"}},{"authorDescription":"Sam is a YouTuber, Streamer &amp;amp;amp;amp; Games Journalist.

you with open spaces to type letters in, some kind of block or obstacle and a small black pellet you need to crash into so as to win the level. To get that annoying little black pellet, you need to pick the right letters to write down.</p>\n<p>Different letters have different shapes; different bits sticking out from different directions. Supertype does a great job at reminding you how weirdly varied our English alphabet can be.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">Supertype does a great job at reminding you how weirdly varied our English alphabet can be.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>You use P’s and Q’s to pivot around obstacles, or U’s and J’s to try and swing around smaller blockers. All this variety creates an amazing challenge; not only do you need to keep in mind the shape of letters, you actually need to consider their physical effects on the environment to try to reach the objective.</p>\n<p>Sometimes the only way to reach the objective is to utilize a very, very small, specific part of a letter. In some cases, you need to use the slimness of an I or an L, whereas other times, the gaps to break through are even smaller than that. In those circumstances, using I’s or J’s, as their lowercase forms contain a helpful dot that breaks away, allowing it to roll right into victory.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/s7vEXjTXs7A\">YouTube</a></h4>\n<p>No Description</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<p>Supertype is one of those few mobile games that manage to blend in education with gameplay. Not only are you learning more about the alphabet and the shapes and variety they possess, but you’re practicing your spatial awareness.</p>\n<p>Each level will see you trying out a different variety of letters, maybe even writing individual words. Sometimes the correct letters to solve a puzzle are not the specific letters themselves, but the ones around them.</p>\n<p>For example, as whenever you type your letters, they drop down a short distance; different letters react in different ways to the fall. P’s and Q’s will fall right or left, respectively, allowing them to influence the letter adjacent to them.</p>\n<p>All this combines to turn Supertype into an incredibly complex, yet easy to understand puzzle game. The variety of gameplay is further enhanced by the inclusion of line puzzles – sometimes, the letters are already written, so you only need to draw the obstacles with which to affect the letters with your fingers.</p>\n<p>This latter addition to the game feels like it could be its own game entirely, but in Supertype, it just feels like a brand new addition that keeps the gameplay feeling fresh consistently.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">This latter addition to the game feels like it could be its own game entirely, but in Supertype, it just feels like a brand new addition that keeps the gameplay feeling fresh consistently.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>Supertype is an odd, odd game. It is part writing, part drawing, part spatial awareness, but it’s a whole lot of fun. You will be challenged, intrigued and, every so often, just a little bit frustrated, but you can always work out the solution in the end.</p>\n<p>It takes inventiveness, creativity and a little bit of outside the box thinking, but you’ll get there in the end.</p>\n<a name=\"review\"></a><div class=\"review\">\n\t\t<h2>Our Rating</h2>\n\t\t<div class=\"mainbox\">\n\t\t\t<div class=\"procons\">\n\t<table>\n\t\t\t<tr><th>Pros</th><th>Cons</th></tr>\n\t\t\t<tr><td>The variety of gameplay is constantly fresh.

rel=\"noopener\">PrivacyCase</a></h3>\n<p>One of the easiest and least technical methods of protecting the phone is to place it into a PrivacyCase which disables many of the connective features that allow for hackers and organizations to access the device. For example, while many people are aware that government organizations are able to remotely access the GPS, camera, and microphone of the device without the user knowing or even when the phone is off, few are familiar with what can be done to stop this from happening. With the PrivacyCase, users simply place their phone into the case which then stops all access from the device so that hackers and other organizations have no way to remotely access the contents of the device. Although expensive, it is now relevant more than ever in terms of cyber security and can even act as a protective case that is also waterproof. With versions for multiple phones or a single phone, the PrivacyCase is a highly recommended tool that should be used to counter mass surveillance and hackers from gaining access to confidential and private data.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a href=\"https://youtu.be/_qSFwHbZoBU\">PrivacyCase Product Description</a></h4>\n<p>What Is PrivacyCase</p>\n</blockquote>\n<p><script async src=\"//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js\" charset=\"UTF-8\"></script></p>\n<h3>Folder Lock (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/folder-lock/id372925917?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>/<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.newsoftwares.folderlock_v1&amp;hl=en\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>In terms of an app-based solution that can help to protect the files that are stored on the device, Folder Lock password protects the selected file on the device so that even if the phone is lost or stolen, the data cannot be accessed. Functional for both large and small files, the app is extremely intelligent in protecting the files as users can get notification on suspicious activities regarding their files such as temporary unlocks or compromised data. Furthermore, users will also be given a notification if they unlock a file but forget to lock it again to ensure that files are never left unprotected for a long period of time accidentally. As the password is not stored anywhere, there is a very small possibility that it can be hacked or stolen, making Folder Lock one of the best tools that can be used for those who store confidential and private data on their mobile phones.</p>\n<h3>SSE &#8211; Universal Encryption App (<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paranoiaworks.unicus.android.sse&amp;hl=en\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>Beyond simply being able to password protect files with Folder Lock, an added layer of file security involves encryption which is essentially converting information into code so that it cannot be accessed without being decrypted. With this, SSE – Universal Encryption App is a tool that encrypts files directly on the phone so that it can never be compromised. For example, some of the files that can be encrypted include text, emails, and passwords which ensures a secure location for the majority of information in a single place. Introducing advanced algorithms for the strongest possible security, users are able to keep their files on their phone with a high degree of peace of mind. As SSE – Universal Encryption App is available on desktop and web versions as well, the data that is encrypted on one location can be decrypted on another to make file transferring extremely secure. One of the most interesting features of the app is that it can also engage in steganography so that messages can be hidden in image files. With this, if a user needs to save a password or message on their phone, the app can convert it into an image and then decrypt it later in order to access it while the message remains hidden to everyone else.</p>\n<h3>Send Anywhere (<a href=\"https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/send-anywhere-file-transfer/id596642855?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iOS</a>/<a href=\"https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.estmob.android.sendanywhere&amp;hl=en\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Android</a>)</h3>\n<p>One of the most vulnerable moments in storing files on the mobile device is during the transfer process, especially if it is being done through the internet which opens opportunities for intercepting the data. As a result, Send Anywhere is a recommended tool that secures this process. When sharing files without a cord, the app requires a 6-digit key which will then grant access to the files otherwise it would be locked. With this, even if the network is compromised during the file transfer process, the files will remain safe as a result of the passcode. Beyond this, sharing a file is made easy as it can be done through generating a link that can be shared with others. In order to further protect this process, the link is only live for a limited period of time before it is automatically broken and can no longer be accessed which limits the risk associated with sending data. In transferring files of any size that are confidential, Send Anywhere is a tool that should be utilized to ensure its protection.</p>\n<p>Although mobile phones are continuously improving in their security measures to protect the files that are stored, there still exist many points of vulnerability that can lead to compromised data. As a result of the increase in surveillance and cyber-attacks that have occurred, the apps and tools listed in this article are highly recommended to ensure the greatest degree of file security in terms of the transfer, storage, and management phases.</p>\n"},"date":"2018-05-15T14:23:39","date_gmt":"2018-05-15T14:23:39","excerpt":{"protected":false,"rendered":"<p>As the available storage and versatility of the phone continues to grow with every iteration, it is increasingly being used for business and personal applications such as storing and transferring files.

matching similar colours to achieve some kind of effect or victory is a game as old as time.</p>\n<p>However, Sdorica – Sunset pairs this with a story-based RPG experience directly tied to the matching games.</p>\n<blockquote class=\"embedly-card\" data-card-controls=\"1\" data-card-align=\"center\" data-card-theme=\"light\" data-card-key=\"2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7\">\n<h4><a

to the very beginning of the story. A military officer meets a giant tiger, as well as a luckily a talented magic user, fully rounding out your party.</p>\n<p>Combat plays out by swiping at least two of the same coloured balls along the bottom section of the interface. As you swipe over them, you’re made aware of the total damage dealt by your attacks, depending on the colour. Each of your characters possesses different strengths and abilities, activated by these coloured balls.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">Each of your characters possesses different strengths and abilities, activated by these coloured balls.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>Swiping over at least four of the balls activates an upgraded form of the attacks, allowing you to strategically plan your attacks based on when you need them. As each ball floats in a line from the side, you can strategically plan out your battle plan; you know you’re going to need to attack more hard at a certain time, so try to sync up the colours properly when you need them.</p>\n<p>Outside of the combat levels itself, the overland map is confusing to the extreme – there are extraneous menus, UI icons and weird stuff everywhere, so it starts to leave you confused beyond belief.</p>\n<p>Luckily though, except for leveling up your individual characters, there’s not much you need to pay attention to with the rest of the level. It’s the combat levels themselves that are the important thing.</p>\n<p>The story everything is based on is in-depth and decently well written – there are a lot of cutesy moments, anime-esque expressions performed by the characters are animated beautifully, with nice little details constantly hidden within.</p>\n<p>The detail within the story is&#8230; well&#8230; it’s a bit silly and very common to anime storylines, but that doesn’t make it <em>bad</em>, per se. It just makes it very silly.<!-- Start Shortcoder content --><blockquote class=\"right mainquote\">The detail within the story is... well... it’s a bit silly and very common to anime storylines, but that doesn’t make it <em>bad</em>, per se. It just makes it very silly.</blockquote><!-- End Shortcoder content -->\n<p>The gameplay is strong, the visual effects and animation pleasing and continuously engaging, so much so that you find yourself not properly reading the descriptions and text of the writing, instead focusing on the moving characters, silly dances and emotions they’re expressing oh so beautifully.</p>\n<p>It might be best if it were a bit clearer exactly how you can predicate the meta in Sdorica – Sunset, but overall the gameplay is consistent enough to be enjoyable without too much frustration.</p>\n<p>Sdorica – Sunset is an especially decent game with a good blend of both tactical combat and colour matching gameplay. Assuming you’re looking for some decent story-based game that manages to blend its gameplay elements well, you likely won’t go wrong with Sdorica – Sunset.</p>\n<a name=\"review\"></a><div class=\"review\">\n\t\t<h2>Our Rating</h2>\n\t\t<div class=\"mainbox\">\n\t\t\t<div class=\"procons\">\n\t<table>\n\t\t\t<tr><th>Pros</th><th>Cons</th></tr>\n\t\t\t<tr><td>The gameplay is nicely blended between the two genres.

A conclusion that has been drawn is that mobile apps and even the phone have been listening in on conversations even when the phone app is not being used in order to get the data to target the ads. Although the reliability of these accusations have not been completely proven, many people have found various ways to increase their privacy be limiting their microphone access to certain apps. As a result, this article discusses ways in which users can block their microphone for certain apps so that it cannot listen in on conversations.\\n\",\n \"articleSection\": \"How To\",\n \"keywords\": \"How To\",\n \"thumbnailUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/microphone-430x430.jpg\",\n \"articleBody\": \"&lt;div class=&quot;fcbk_share&quot;&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;fcbk_like&quot;&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;fb-like&quot; data-href=&quot;https://backend.appolicious.com/how-to-stop-apps-from-accessing-the-microphone/&quot; data-colorscheme=&quot;light&quot; data-layout=&quot;button_count&quot; data-action=&quot;like&quot; data-share=&quot;false&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;h2&gt;For Android&lt;/h2&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;On Android devices, it is extremely easy to restrict microphone access to multiple apps through the Settings app. To do this, users first need to go to their&lt;em&gt; Settings app, Apps tab, and then select the different apps that they would like to limit access to&lt;/em&gt;. For example, users can select Facebook to see which permissions have been granted to the app and then limit what it has access to so that it does not listen in on conversations. From there, users are also able to &lt;em&gt;limit other access points such as the camera or location services&lt;/em&gt; if they are not essential to the app. For those who wish to increase the privacy on their device by stopping apps from being able to access the microphone and potentially listen in on conversations to display targeted ads, this method is able to quickly stop the different apps from having this level of access.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;h2&gt;For iOS&lt;/h2&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;For iOS devices, it is just as easy to restrict the access of the microphone to apps such as Facebook through the Settings app. With this, users need to first go to into their &lt;em&gt;Settings app&lt;/em&gt; and then &lt;em&gt;scroll down until they find the app that they want to restrict access to&lt;/em&gt;. In this case, users would scroll down until they get to the Facebook app and then click on it. From there, users can see exactly what kind of access a particular app has so that it can be restricted if it is not essential to the performance. For example, the &lt;em&gt;Facebook app may have access to the microphone, the GPS, and camera at which point users would be able to select which one they want to restrict&lt;/em&gt;. With this, users can effectively stop apps from having too much access to the phone to ensure the greatest degree of privacy.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;A tip with regards to limiting microphone access is to ensure users review what permissions they are giving to the different apps that are installed. Often, users do not carefully read what the app has access to and so they give access to all of the requested functions without knowing what the consequences are. Therefore, it is highly recommended that users always &lt;strong&gt;review the permissions that are requested when installing an app&lt;/strong&gt; instead of simply agreeing without reading.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;blockquote class=&quot;embedly-card&quot; data-card-controls=&quot;1&quot; data-card-align=&quot;center&quot; data-card-theme=&quot;light&quot; data-card-key=&quot;2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7&quot;&gt;\\n&lt;h4&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FiRFDFM4qo&quot;&gt;How to Disable Microphones to Prevent Facebook Google and Apps from Spying&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/h4&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;For more details on any of the ideas or products visit: https://techwellness.com/products/creepblockers-webcam-covers-cyber-security-for-all-devices Let&amp;#8217;s Be Social: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/techwellness/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/techwellness/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/tech__wellness Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/techwellness/pins/&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;/blockquote&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;&lt;script async src=&quot;//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js&quot; charset=&quot;UTF-8&quot;&gt;&lt;/script&gt;&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;As an increasing number of people are concerned about the access that apps have on their mobile phone, the methods listed in this article are able to restrict different kinds of permissions that the apps have such as to the microphone.

With this, users are able to upload multiple images at once and then “stitch” them together so that it is one larger picture on their profile. As this is not a default option on Instagram, 9square for Instagram is an app that takes a whole image and then divides it up into 9 separate sections that are numbered so that users know what order to upload them in. After this is done, users are able to upload the images to form a larger image on their profile which other people do not currently do to enhance their profile.  Although the images may not make sense on their own as they are divided into smaller grids to form a larger picture on the profile, 9square for Instagram is one of the easiest ways to differentiate a profile.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;h3&gt;Reports+ Followers Analytics for Instagram (&lt;a href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/reports-for-instagram/id1156192844?mt=8&quot;&gt;iOS&lt;/a&gt;/&lt;a href=&quot;https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mobilearts.instareport&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener&quot;&gt;Android&lt;/a&gt;)&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;A tool that is currently not being leveraged to grow Instagram followers is advanced analytics which helps to reveal the details behind the followers of the user.

With this, users can go into their Settings app and then Battery where they have the option to display the battery percentage or activate Low Power Mode to optimize battery life at the expense of performance. In the Battery Health (Beta) tab, users can see exactly what the Maximum Capacity for their battery is to evaluate the power relative to a new battery. For example, if the maximum capacity of the battery is only 90%, then at full charge the battery is only 90% of what a new battery could hold. However, this feature is still in Beta and is only available for certain iPhone versions. For those who are not on this iPhone version, users are able to download a third-party app that is able to display this information which is mentioned below.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;h3&gt;Battery Life &amp;#8211; check runtimes (&lt;a href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/battery-life-check-runtimes/id1080930585?mt=8&quot;&gt;iOS&lt;/a&gt;)&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;For those with an iPhone that does not come with the Battery Health (Beta) option, Battery Life is an app that can be downloaded to perform many of the same functions and even more. For example, users are able to see the capacity of the battery and how much a full charge would be relative to this amount. Furthermore, users can see the runtime of different services on the phone such as 3G Talk Time and LTE Browsing so that they can tell which services are running the most batteries and for how long. In being able to see the different data through the app, those without the Battery Health (Beta) feature on the iPhone can get the information about the capacity of their battery.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 1080930585) --&gt;\\n&lt;div class=&quot;wpappbox wpappbox-821433d220582c38933ce4e809e0465a appstore colorful simple&quot;&gt;\\n\\t&lt;div class=&quot;qrcode&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&amp;chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fbattery-life-check-runtimes%2Fid1080930585%3Fmt%3D8&amp;chs=200x200&amp;chld=L|0&quot; alt=&quot;Battery Life - check runtimes&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t&lt;div class=&quot;appicon&quot;&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;a target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot; href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/battery-life-check-runtimes/id1080930585?mt=8&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;//is3-ssl.mzstatic.com/image/thumb/Purple128/v4/39/bb/12/39bb12f0-e32d-6c36-fe42-1ad6db1405bb/AppIcon-1x_U007emarketing-85-220-0-6.png/246x0w.jpg&quot; alt=&quot;Battery Life - check runtimes&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;\\n\\t&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t&lt;div class=&quot;applinks&quot;&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;div class=&quot;appbuttons&quot;&gt;\\n\\t\\t\\t&lt;a target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot; href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/battery-life-check-runtimes/id1080930585?mt=8&quot;&gt;Download&lt;/a&gt;\\n\\t\\t\\t&lt;span onMouseOver=&quot;jQuery(&#39;.wpappbox-821433d220582c38933ce4e809e0465a .qrcode&#39;).show();&quot; onMouseOut=&quot;jQuery(&#39;.wpappbox-821433d220582c38933ce4e809e0465a .qrcode&#39;).hide();&quot;&gt;QR-Code&lt;/span&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t&lt;div class=&quot;appdetails&quot;&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;div class=&quot;apptitle&quot;&gt;&lt;a target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot; href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/battery-life-check-runtimes/id1080930585?mt=8&quot; title=&quot;Battery Life - check runtimes&quot; class=&quot;apptitle&quot;&gt;Battery Life - check runtimes&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;div class=&quot;developer&quot;&gt;Developer: &lt;a target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot; href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/rbt-digital-llc/id1208547221?mt=8&quot;&gt;RBT Digital LLC&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;div class=&quot;price&quot;&gt;&lt;span&gt;Price: Free&lt;sup&gt;+&lt;/sup&gt;&lt;/span&gt; &lt;div title=&quot;4.6 of 5 stars&quot; class=&quot;rating-stars stars-colorful stars45&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t&lt;/div&gt;\\n&lt;/div&gt;&lt;!-- /WP-Appbox --&gt;\\n&lt;h2&gt;For Android&lt;/h2&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Android devices do not have a built in feature that allows users to see their battery life such as with the iPhone but are able to download third-party apps which help to show the battery capacity. AccuBattery (&lt;a href=&quot;https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digibites.accubattery&amp;amp;hl=en&quot;&gt;Android&lt;/a&gt;) is an app that not only detects the battery capacity of the Android device and displays it, but also has several different tools which help to prevent instances of overcharging that can lead to a deteriorating battery. For example, if a battery is fully charged, it is recommended that users stop charging their phone otherwise it could possibly damage the capacity. With this, the app has an alarm that notifiesusers that the charge is complete. Furthermore, there are other insights that are offered through AccuBattery such as charge speed, charge history, and apps that have taken up the most batteries so that users know to limit usage of these tools. With the combination of these functions, AccuBattery is one of the best apps that can be used by Android users to evaluate battery performance and capacity as well as a range of other metrics.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.digibites.accubattery) --&gt;\\n&lt;div class=&quot;wpappbox wpappbox-ebffc6f71e770bb64c0c95af4a0ac973 googleplay colorful simple&quot;&gt;\\n\\t&lt;div class=&quot;qrcode&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&amp;chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.digibites.accubattery&amp;chs=200x200&amp;chld=L|0&quot; alt=&quot;Accu​Battery&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t&lt;div class=&quot;appicon&quot;&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;a target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot; href=&quot;https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digibites.accubattery&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;//lh3.googleusercontent.com/RntdG3YJNFXq3V2FZn8aOU2hPqyPqwXG-cr7_HBcjMjDGcMTVg9AHxkiP3s3LkXUR_s=s180&quot; alt=&quot;Accu​Battery&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;\\n\\t&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t&lt;div class=&quot;applinks&quot;&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;div class=&quot;appbuttons&quot;&gt;\\n\\t\\t\\t&lt;a target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot; href=&quot;https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digibites.accubattery&quot;&gt;Download&lt;/a&gt;\\n\\t\\t\\t&lt;span onMouseOver=&quot;jQuery(&#39;.wpappbox-ebffc6f71e770bb64c0c95af4a0ac973 .qrcode&#39;).show();&quot; onMouseOut=&quot;jQuery(&#39;.wpappbox-ebffc6f71e770bb64c0c95af4a0ac973 .qrcode&#39;).hide();&quot;&gt;QR-Code&lt;/span&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t&lt;div class=&quot;appdetails&quot;&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;div class=&quot;apptitle&quot;&gt;&lt;a target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot; href=&quot;https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digibites.accubattery&quot; title=&quot;Accu​Battery&quot; class=&quot;apptitle&quot;&gt;Accu​Battery&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;div class=&quot;developer&quot;&gt;Developer: &lt;a target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;nofollow&quot; href=&quot;https://play.google.comhttps://play.google.com/store/apps/dev?id=6700229384117889767&quot;&gt;Digibites&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;div class=&quot;price&quot;&gt;&lt;span&gt;Price: Free&lt;sup&gt;+&lt;/sup&gt;&lt;/span&gt; &lt;div title=&quot;0 of 5 stars&quot; class=&quot;rating-stars stars-colorful stars00&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;\\n\\t&lt;/div&gt;\\n&lt;/div&gt;&lt;!-- /WP-Appbox --&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;As the battery percentage that is shown on the phone is often misleading as the battery capacity is lower than what it was when it was brand new, users are now able to tell what their battery capacity really is with these tools.

Furthermore, users can toggle different options that optimize battery performance and phone temperature so that it does not overheat by closing the apps that are taking the most batteries.

For example, red characters are able to damage all enemies at the same time.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;This means that it is always to your benefit to hit as many bubbles as possible to affect the battlefield as much as possible.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Considering it’s just a pretty basic bejewelled game at the bottom, it is surprising how much you can feel motivated to do well, considering the difficulty of the fights on the top of the screen. Even just from the beginning, the pacing feels difficult and challenging, allowing you to understandably need to prepare and pace yourself well to not die horribly to a dragon.&lt;!-- Start Shortcoder content --&gt;&lt;blockquote class=&quot;right mainquote&quot;&gt;Even just from the beginning, the pacing feels difficult and challenging, allowing you to understandably need to prepare and pace yourself well to not die horribly to a dragon.&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;!-- End Shortcoder content --&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;The loot system for Lightslinger feels somewhat confusing, however, as each enemy has a chance to drop a chest that contains loot you don’t really understand or seemingly need. In between levels you can level up your characters or improve their abilities, but the actual loot gained from the fights seems inconsequential – likely it has some grander purpose, but upon immediate receipt of the item, you are left with no real idea of what this item is, leaving you confused and a little annoyed.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Lightslinger combines an elemental, bejewelled-style puzzle game with an adventure RPG system that captivates you sufficiently to keep going. There is strong impetus to do well, as well as a myriad of additional effects and party combinations you can include to alter the playing field.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Lightslinger Heroes manages to turn a simplistic concept and add in other elements to make it something pretty special. Not amazing, mind you, but special enough to play a decent amount.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: googleplay // ID: com.skybornegames.battlepop) --&gt;\\n&lt;div class=&quot;wpappbox wpappbox-a0bee697546db1bbdbecc8195fd370b2 googleplay colorful simple&quot;&gt;\\n\\t&lt;div class=&quot;qrcode&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&amp;chl=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.skybornegames.battlepop&amp;chs=200x200&amp;chld=L|0&quot;

Given that so many wireless charging pads are available to be purchased online, the price can range from $10-$50 depending on the quality and brand of the charger. For example, the &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Certified-Wireless-Charger-Pad/dp/B00UCZGS6S/&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener&quot;&gt;Samsung Qi Charger Pad&lt;/a&gt; is a device that lets users charge either their iOS or Android device by simply placing the phone onto the pad. At only $20, users can charge with more confidence as the cord would never break or become less efficient while the pad also has a light indicator to let the user know what percentage their phone battery is at. As a universal charging device that is able to accommodate any device that has wireless charging enabled, the Samsung Qi Charger Pad is a great tool for moving from a corded charging system to one that is wireless.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;blockquote class=&quot;embedly-card&quot; data-card-controls=&quot;1&quot; data-card-align=&quot;center&quot; data-card-theme=&quot;light&quot; data-card-key=&quot;2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7&quot;&gt;\\n&lt;h4&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7GZjDKS6E0&quot;&gt;Samsung Qi Wireless Charging Pad for Galaxy S6 Review&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/h4&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Beau HD takes a look at the official black sapphire wireless charging pad for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. For $50, the Samsung Wireless Charging Pad works with all Qi-certified devices. All you have to do is place your compatible phone on the charger pad and it will begin charging without ever needing to insert any type of charging cable into your device.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;/blockquote&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;&lt;script async src=&quot;//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js&quot; charset=&quot;UTF-8&quot;&gt;&lt;/script&gt;&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;For devices that do not have wireless charging enabled because they are older models, users are able to modify the device in such a way that enables them to utilize a wireless charging pad as if it were a newer device. However, in order to do this, users need to purchase additional hardware for their device such as the &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.gearbest.com/power-banks/pp_582703.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener&quot;&gt;Charger Receiver&lt;/a&gt; for Android devices or the &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Qi-Wireless-Charger-Receiver-Charging-Adapter-Receptor-micro-USB-for-iPhone-5-6-6s-plus-type/32843392665.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener&quot;&gt;Qi Wireless Charging Receiver Charger&lt;/a&gt; for iOS devices. With these receivers, users plug one end into their device while the other end is placed flat on the back side. The receivers are so thin that users would not be affected with the usability of the overall device as the physical profile is so thin. With this setup, users are then able to place their device on a wireless charging pad such as the Samsung Qi Charger Pad to charge the device without a cord. While the cost to enable wireless charging may be slightly higher for devices that do not enable for wireless charging by default, the long-run costs associated with replacing multiple cords does not surpass that of the receiver and pad, making it a more economical and convenient solution.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;For those who are looking for wireless charging solutions that deviate from traditional charging cords, this article offers the different solutions available for the mobile device. Even for devices that do not have wireless charging built in, additional hardware solutions exist for converting the charging system to a wireless one which can help users increase the efficiency at which they charge their device and save money on broken cords over long-term usage.&lt;/p&gt;\\n\",\n \"publisher\": {\n \"@type\": \"Organization\",\n \"name\": \"Appolicious mobile apps\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/\",\n \"logo\": {\n \"@type\": \"ImageObject\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/appologo.png\"\n }\n },\n \"author\": {\n \"@type\": \"Person\",\n \"name\": \"kevin_chau\",\n \"description\": \"model.authorInformation[author][3]\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/author/kevin_chau\",\n \"image\": {\n \"@type\": \"ImageObject\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/author/kevin_chau.png\",\n \"contentUrl\": \"https://appolicious.com/author/kevin_chau.png\",\n \"encodingFormat\": \"image/jpeg\",\n \"width\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"128\"\n },\n \"height\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"128\"\n }\n }\n }\n}</script>","<script type='application/ld+json'>{\n \"@context\": \"http://schema.org/\",\n \"@type\": \"Article\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/how-to-disable-read-receipts\",\n \"image\": {\n \"@type\": \"ImageObject\",\n \"name\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/read-650x350.jpg\",\n \"url\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/read-650x350.jpg\",\n \"sameAs\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/read-650x350.jpg\",\n \"thumbnailUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/read-650x350.jpg\",\n \"contentUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/read-650x350.jpg\",\n \"encodingFormat\": \"image/png\",\n \"width\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"550\"\n },\n \"height\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"350\"\n }\n },\n \"mainEntityOfPage\": \"https://appolicious.com/how-to-disable-read-receipts\",\n \"datePublished\": \"2018-05-18T11:13:07\",\n \"dateModified\": \"2018-05-18T11:13:07\",\n \"copyrightYear\": \"2018\",\n \"inLanguage\": \"en_US\",\n \"name\": \"How to Disable Read Receipts\",\n \"headline\": \"How to Disable Read Receipts\",\n \"description\": \"One of the most annoying aspects about communicating on many social media networks is that read receipts are given to the others in a conversation which a sender may not want other people to know. As this can result in privacy issues or general awkwardness when a recipient sees that a message has been read but not replied to, this article discusses the different ways in which users are able to disable this feature on the mobile device.\\n\",\n \"articleSection\": \"How To\",\n \"keywords\": \"How To\",\n \"thumbnailUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/read-430x430.jpg\",\n \"articleBody\": \"&lt;div class=&quot;fcbk_share&quot;&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;fcbk_like&quot;&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;fb-like&quot; data-href=&quot;https://backend.appolicious.com/how-to-disable-read-receipts/&quot; data-colorscheme=&quot;light&quot; data-layout=&quot;button_count&quot; data-action=&quot;like&quot; data-share=&quot;false&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;h3&gt;For iOS Devices&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;One of the most common tools that is used on the iPhone is iMessages which sends texts and also displays the read receipts. However, this can be turned off quite simply so that the sender of a message is not notified once the user has read their message. In order to do this, users must first go into their &lt;em&gt;Settings app, Messages, and then toggle the Send Read Receipts button&lt;/em&gt;. Once these steps have been taken, the sender of a message will no longer see that a user has read their message once they have. While Android devices do not have read receipts for the texts that are sent on the default texting app, this is not applicable to non-iOS devices.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;h3&gt;For WhatsApp&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;For those who are looking to remove the read receipt of messages that are sent through the WhatsApp app, users are able to do so right on the app. In order to deactivate this feature, users first need to open their WhatsApp application, click the three vertical circles on the top right side of the screen, and then select &lt;em&gt;Settings&lt;/em&gt;. From there, &lt;em&gt;Accounts&lt;/em&gt; need to be selected and then &lt;em&gt;Privacy&lt;/em&gt;. From the privacy screen, the &lt;em&gt;Read Receipts option can be switched on or off&lt;/em&gt; depending on the preferences of the user. If the box remains unticked, the sender of a message will not be notified of when the receiver has actually read the message but instead only know that the message has been delivered. Furthermore, the toggling of the settings is applicable to both the iOS and Android versions of WhatsApp to simplify the process.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;h3&gt;Facebook Messenger&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Although the Facebook Messenger app does not have specific settings which users are able to stop the read receipts from occurring, a trick that lets users read messages without sending an actual receipt is to simply &lt;em&gt;pull down on the top of the screen or the pull down menu at which point users can preview the message without the app actually recognizing this as read&lt;/em&gt;. In doing so, users are able to read entire messages that have been sent through Facebook without sending the read receipt although a drawback to this method is that users are not able to reply to the messages but can simply only read it without having the sender see the receipt. However, replying to the message requires users to open the app at which point it will be marked as read to the original sender or group chat.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;For those who are looking for ways in which to stop the sender of messages from seeing that they have read it, this article discusses the various ways users can stop the read receipts from being sent. For various apps on both iOS and Android devices, these methods can prevent read receipts from being sent through iMessages, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger which are some of the most popular apps that contain read receipts. Using the outlined methods for these apps, most read receipts will no longer be sent to any of the original senders for a greater degree of privacy.&lt;/p&gt;\\n\",\n \"publisher\": {\n \"@type\": \"Organization\",\n \"name\": \"Appolicious mobile apps\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/\",\n \"logo\": {\n \"@type\": \"ImageObject\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/appologo.png\"\n }\n },\n \"author\": {\n \"@type\": \"Person\",\n \"name\": \"kevin_chau\",\n \"description\": \"model.authorInformation[author][3]\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/author/kevin_chau\",\n \"image\": {\n \"@type\": \"ImageObject\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/author/kevin_chau.png\",\n \"contentUrl\": \"https://appolicious.com/author/kevin_chau.png\",\n \"encodingFormat\": \"image/jpeg\",\n \"width\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"128\"\n },\n \"height\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"128\"\n }\n }\n }\n}</script>","<script type='application/ld+json'>{\n \"@context\": \"http://schema.org/\",\n \"@type\": \"Article\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/the-quest-for-quality-food-allergy-apps-foodallergyawarenessweek\",\n \"image\": {\n \"@type\": \"ImageObject\",\n \"name\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/FoodAllergyApps-650x350.jpg\",\n \"url\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/FoodAllergyApps-650x350.jpg\",\n \"sameAs\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/FoodAllergyApps-650x350.jpg\",\n \"thumbnailUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/FoodAllergyApps-650x350.jpg\",\n \"contentUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/FoodAllergyApps-650x350.jpg\",\n \"encodingFormat\": \"image/png\",\n \"width\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"550\"\n },\n \"height\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"350\"\n }\n },\n \"mainEntityOfPage\": \"https://appolicious.com/the-quest-for-quality-food-allergy-apps-foodallergyawarenessweek\",\n \"datePublished\": \"2018-05-18T01:46:02\",\n \"dateModified\": \"2018-05-18T01:46:02\",\n \"copyrightYear\": \"2018\",\n \"inLanguage\": \"en_US\",\n \"name\": \"The Quest for Quality Food Allergy Apps &#8211; #FoodAllergyAwarenessWeek\",\n \"headline\": \"The Quest for Quality Food Allergy Apps &#8211; #FoodAllergyAwarenessWeek\",\n \"description\": \"In a world full of life threatening food allergies, there should be better apps for families and allergic adults to rely on.\\n\",\n \"articleSection\": \"Apps\",\n \"keywords\": \"Apps\",\n \"thumbnailUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/FoodAllergyApps-430x430.jpg\",\n \"articleBody\": \"&lt;div class=&quot;fcbk_share&quot;&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;fcbk_like&quot;&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;fb-like&quot; data-href=&quot;https://backend.appolicious.com/the-quest-for-quality-food-allergy-apps-foodallergyawarenessweek/&quot; data-colorscheme=&quot;light&quot; data-layout=&quot;button_count&quot; data-action=&quot;like&quot; data-share=&quot;false&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;p&gt;In honor of #FoodAllergyAwarenessWeek, I set out to review the best mobile apps for people like myself who suffer from severe food allergies. It&amp;#8217;s a near-invisible but deeply troubling problem that&amp;#8217;s unfortunately growing in prominence over the past two decades. As such, you&amp;#8217;d think in a market full of niche apps &lt;strong&gt;so&lt;/strong&gt; wide that we have &lt;a href=&quot;https://backend.appolicious.com/augmenting-your-reality-holo-with-arkit-interview/&quot;&gt;holograms&lt;/a&gt; and &lt;a href=&quot;https://backend.appolicious.com/the-best-meditation-apps-you-should-have-on-your-iphone-to-find-your-peace-of-mind/&quot;&gt;meditation guidance&lt;/a&gt;&amp;#8230; that you&amp;#8217;d figure we have plenty great food allergy apps, right?&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;You&amp;#8217;d be wrong.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;I downloaded some of the reportedly best apps for someone with my condition, and here&amp;#8217;s what I found. I&amp;#8217;ve included both two that you should absolutely avoid, and the two most useful apps I discovered.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;h2&gt;&lt;strong&gt;The Worst:&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/h2&gt;\\n&lt;h3&gt;For Kids &amp;#8212; &lt;em&gt;Allergy Reality&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;This is one of several apps that aims to educate your whole family about what is and isn&amp;#8217;t safe to eat. It does this with a series of mini-games with varying amounts of relevance, with the best being the simple act of asking players to pick out what food is or isn&amp;#8217;t safe based on their allergy, while the worst is an infuriating matching game more likely to annoy a child than inform them.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Then there&amp;#8217;s the one asking kids to spell out an allergen&amp;#8217;s name in a reversed form of hangman. Nevermind most of the children who will use this app won&amp;#8217;t know how to spell &amp;#8220;BRAZILIAN NUTS&amp;#8221; and also for the record, they&amp;#8217;re referred to typically as just &amp;#8220;Brazil Nuts&amp;#8221;.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;To be fair, I discovered another good one where the player has to pick out from what ingredients weren&amp;#8217;t safe from an ingredient list on the back of a box, but there&amp;#8217;s something you may be noticing &amp;#8211; the best mini-games available are things you could &lt;em&gt;just do at home with actual food products&lt;/em&gt;. The rest of the mini-games border on bizarre and outright ill-conceived. There&amp;#8217;s no relevant lesson here that necessitates downloading the app. But hey, it&amp;#8217;s got a theme song and some really strange-yet-boring mini-games, and apparently that&amp;#8217;s warranted it being a popular download.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;h3&gt;For Adults &amp;#8212; &lt;em&gt;Spokin&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Did you need a new social media platform that&amp;#8217;s really hard to navigate, basically just doubles as an ad platform for a few (your mileage may vary, I saw mostly the same one over and over again) allergen-free brands? I didn&amp;#8217;t, but apparently somebody thought we needed one. It seems no one told the developers of &lt;em&gt;Spokin&lt;/em&gt; that there&amp;#8217;s already dozens of Facebook groups dedicated to this. While there&amp;#8217;s clearly good intentions behind this one, it&amp;#8217;s only slightly less irrelevant than &lt;em&gt;Allergy Reality&lt;/em&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;h2&gt;&lt;strong&gt;The Best:&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/h2&gt;\\n&lt;h3&gt;For Kids &amp;#8212; &lt;em&gt;Wizdy Diner&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Apparently odd names are just a rule of thumb for allergy apps, but at least&lt;em&gt; Wizdy&lt;/em&gt; offers a solid effort when it comes to conveying how easily allergens can slip in when you&amp;#8217;re eating out at a restaurant. The core gameplay is a typical &lt;em&gt;Diner Dash&lt;/em&gt; clone, except now you have to make sure to catch every person&amp;#8217;s allergens before telling the chef what to cook up. The parade of customers gets faster and faster, increasing the odds some of your customers might be sent to the hospital if you aren&amp;#8217;t careful. Along the way, you upgrade your diner and have to choose what food you have on offer &amp;#8211; giving kids a light bit of management, in addition to consequences for if they don&amp;#8217;t have allergen-friendly food on the menu.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;The game itself is basic, but achieves its goals better than any other child-friendly app that I tried. It&amp;#8217;s genuinely possible to give your customers the wrong food order a few times, and the gravity of your actions &amp;#8211; while not as severe as they would be in real life &amp;#8211; are made clear. There&amp;#8217;s even a secondary mini-game on the main menu about educating kids how to use an epinephrine shot. It&amp;#8217;s not the most&lt;em&gt; exciting&lt;/em&gt; game, but it translates the risks of food allergies at restaurants with the clear, easily understood language of gameplay mechanics. Edutainment done right.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 1059091444?ls=1&amp;amp;mt=8) --&gt;\\n&lt;div class=&quot;wpappbox wpappbox-487774954a1bbce741f8703dc01bb3e0 appstore colorful simple&quot;&gt;\\n\\t&lt;div class=&quot;qrcode&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&amp;chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fwizdy-diner-food-allergy-game%2Fid1059091444%3Fmt%3D8&amp;chs=200x200&amp;chld=L|0&quot;

&lt;em&gt;ipiit: The Food Ambassador&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Yes, that&amp;#8217;s actually it&amp;#8217;s name, but &lt;em&gt;ipiit&lt;/em&gt; is one of the more useful apps available. It&amp;#8217;s a barcode scanner that can quickly inform you about many common products, and is supported in part by a public database that its users grow by taking pictures of products. The scanner function works fine so long as it knows the product, and if it doesn&amp;#8217;t, you can easily take a few pictures and send it off to the app&amp;#8217;s developers. It&amp;#8217;s a brilliant use of crowd-sourcing that makes perfect sense. You can even specify what your allergen is &amp;#8211; but that&amp;#8217;s where things go downhill for an otherwise solid app.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;You see,&lt;em&gt; ipiit&lt;/em&gt;, in all its unpronounceable wisdom, doesn&amp;#8217;t feature support for all top 8 major allergens. It can tell you if the food has almonds or gluten, but there&amp;#8217;s a laundry list of allergens that need added, and clearly the developers know this because there&amp;#8217;s already an automated list for requested allergens. Now, I understand that in this case, it&amp;#8217;s a daunting task to keep up with all the allergens in food, but the top 8 should all be in there. By offering such a narrow scope, &lt;em&gt;ipiit&lt;/em&gt; feels more like a band-aid in its current state, which is a waste considering all the effort put in. It might spare you one or two phone calls at the grocery store when researching a product on the shelf, but it most certainly needs to grow if someone outside of its current allergen listings is ever to use it. It&amp;#8217;s a great app, but there&amp;#8217;s way too much missing here.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;!-- WP-Appbox (Version: 4.0.40 // Store: appstore // ID: 536930786?mt=8) --&gt;\\n&lt;div class=&quot;wpappbox wpappbox-46935692acebb3817389f62c7f6487b2 appstore colorful simple&quot;&gt;\\n\\t&lt;div class=&quot;qrcode&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&amp;chl=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple.com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fipiit-grocery-scanner-for-food-allergies-diets%2Fid536930786%3Fmt%3D8&amp;chs=200x200&amp;chld=L|0&quot;

A lot of the apps I tried were either a mediocre alternative of one of the apps listed above, or ineffectual at helping with the realities someone with food allergies faces. As food allergies fast become one of the biggest medical issues of our generation, but we can and should be trying to make things easier for those that suffer from them. While there are social circles and websites that help, that doesn&amp;#8217;t mean mobile apps shouldn&amp;#8217;t be offering decent alternatives. We need to be able to find a restaurant that&amp;#8217;s safe to eat at, if there&amp;#8217;s been cross-contamination alerts or ingredient changes in food, and most importantly of all &amp;#8211; to know if a product is safe regardless of when customer service hours for the manufacturer run. These are basic quality of life needs that developers can help ease. I hope more answer the call, and present better options for our peers, and the generations to come.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;If you&amp;#8217;ve heard of any great allergy apps we missed, be sure to let us know &lt;a href=&quot;https://twitter.com/appolicious?lang=en&quot;&gt;@Appolicious&lt;/a&gt;!&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;\\n\",\n \"publisher\": {\n \"@type\": \"Organization\",\n \"name\": \"Appolicious mobile apps\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/\",\n \"logo\": {\n \"@type\": \"ImageObject\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/appologo.png\"\n }\n },\n \"author\": {\n \"@type\": \"Person\",\n \"name\": \"elijah_beahm\",\n \"description\": \"model.authorInformation[author][3]\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/author/elijah_beahm\",\n \"image\": {\n \"@type\": \"ImageObject\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/author/elijah_beahm.png\",\n \"contentUrl\": \"https://appolicious.com/author/elijah_beahm.png\",\n \"encodingFormat\": \"image/jpeg\",\n \"width\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"128\"\n },\n \"height\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"128\"\n }\n }\n }\n}</script>","<script type='application/ld+json'>{\n \"@context\": \"http://schema.org/\",\n \"@type\": \"Article\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/supertype-typing-to-victory\",\n \"image\": {\n \"@type\": \"ImageObject\",\n \"name\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/supertype-650x350.jpg\",\n \"url\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/supertype-650x350.jpg\",\n \"sameAs\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/supertype-650x350.jpg\",\n \"thumbnailUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/supertype-650x350.jpg\",\n \"contentUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/supertype-650x350.jpg\",\n \"encodingFormat\": \"image/png\",\n \"width\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"550\"\n },\n \"height\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"350\"\n }\n },\n \"mainEntityOfPage\": \"https://appolicious.com/supertype-typing-to-victory\",\n \"datePublished\": \"2018-05-17T12:34:14\",\n \"dateModified\": \"2018-05-17T12:34:14\",\n \"copyrightYear\": \"2018\",\n \"inLanguage\": \"en_US\",\n \"name\": \"Supertype &#8211; Typing To Victory\",\n \"headline\": \"Supertype &#8211; Typing To Victory\",\n \"description\": \"Supertype is a puzzle game based around writing and drawing your way to the solution.\\n\",\n \"articleSection\": \"Puzzle\",\n \"keywords\": \"Puzzle\",\n \"thumbnailUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/supertype-430x430.jpg\",\n \"articleBody\": \"&lt;div class=&quot;fcbk_share&quot;&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;fcbk_like&quot;&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;fb-like&quot; data-href=&quot;https://backend.appolicious.com/supertype-typing-to-victory/&quot; data-colorscheme=&quot;light&quot; data-layout=&quot;button_count&quot; data-action=&quot;like&quot; data-share=&quot;false&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;p&gt;The idea of typing out words to solve puzzles seems an odd one, but Supertype makes it work extremely well.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Each puzzle presents you with open spaces to type letters in, some kind of block or obstacle and a small black pellet you need to crash into so as to win the level. To get that annoying little black pellet, you need to pick the right letters to write down.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Different letters have different shapes; different bits sticking out from different directions. Supertype does a great job at reminding you how weirdly varied our English alphabet can be.&lt;!-- Start Shortcoder content --&gt;&lt;blockquote class=&quot;right mainquote&quot;&gt;Supertype does a great job at reminding you how weirdly varied our English alphabet can be.&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;!-- End Shortcoder content --&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;You use P’s and Q’s to pivot around obstacles, or U’s and J’s to try and swing around smaller blockers. All this variety creates an amazing challenge; not only do you need to keep in mind the shape of letters, you actually need to consider their physical effects on the environment to try to reach the objective.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Sometimes the only way to reach the objective is to utilize a very, very small, specific part of a letter. In some cases, you need to use the slimness of an I or an L, whereas other times, the gaps to break through are even smaller than that. In those circumstances, using I’s or J’s, as their lowercase forms contain a helpful dot that breaks away, allowing it to roll right into victory.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;blockquote class=&quot;embedly-card&quot; data-card-controls=&quot;1&quot; data-card-align=&quot;center&quot; data-card-theme=&quot;light&quot; data-card-key=&quot;2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7&quot;&gt;\\n&lt;h4&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;https://youtu.be/s7vEXjTXs7A&quot;&gt;YouTube&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/h4&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;No Description&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;/blockquote&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;&lt;script async src=&quot;//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js&quot; charset=&quot;UTF-8&quot;&gt;&lt;/script&gt;&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Supertype is one of those few mobile games that manage to blend in education with gameplay. Not only are you learning more about the alphabet and the shapes and variety they possess, but you’re practicing your spatial awareness.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Each level will see you trying out a different variety of letters, maybe even writing individual words. Sometimes the correct letters to solve a puzzle are not the specific letters themselves, but the ones around them.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;For example, as whenever you type your letters, they drop down a short distance; different letters react in different ways to the fall. P’s and Q’s will fall right or left, respectively, allowing them to influence the letter adjacent to them.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;All this combines to turn Supertype into an incredibly complex, yet easy to understand puzzle game. The variety of gameplay is further enhanced by the inclusion of line puzzles – sometimes, the letters are already written, so you only need to draw the obstacles with which to affect the letters with your fingers.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;This latter addition to the game feels like it could be its own game entirely, but in Supertype, it just feels like a brand new addition that keeps the gameplay feeling fresh consistently.&lt;!-- Start Shortcoder content --&gt;&lt;blockquote class=&quot;right mainquote&quot;&gt;This latter addition to the game feels like it could be its own game entirely, but in Supertype, it just feels like a brand new addition that keeps the gameplay feeling fresh consistently.&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;!-- End Shortcoder content --&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Supertype is an odd, odd game.

Given that the phone is regarded as a highly personalized device that can store a significant amount of confidential information, it is now more important than ever to ensure that the phone is secured from those who may want to access this information. As a result, this article discusses the apps and tools that can be utilized to ensure the highest degree of security in terms of storing confidential and private data on the phone.\\n\",\n \"articleSection\": \"Tech\",\n \"keywords\": \"Tech\",\n \"thumbnailUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/phonesecurity-430x430.jpg\",\n \"articleBody\": \"&lt;div class=&quot;fcbk_share&quot;&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;fcbk_like&quot;&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;fb-like&quot; data-href=&quot;https://backend.appolicious.com/the-ultimate-guide-to-phone-security/&quot; data-colorscheme=&quot;light&quot; data-layout=&quot;button_count&quot; data-action=&quot;like&quot; data-share=&quot;false&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;h3&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;https://www.privacycase.com/products/privacycase-mini-scif&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener&quot;&gt;PrivacyCase&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;One of the easiest and least technical methods of protecting the phone is to place it into a PrivacyCase which disables many of the connective features that allow for hackers and organizations to access the device. For example, while many people are aware that government organizations are able to remotely access the GPS, camera, and microphone of the device without the user knowing or even when the phone is off, few are familiar with what can be done to stop this from happening. With the PrivacyCase, users simply place their phone into the case which then stops all access from the device so that hackers and other organizations have no way to remotely access the contents of the device. Although expensive, it is now relevant more than ever in terms of cyber security and can even act as a protective case that is also waterproof. With versions for multiple phones or a single phone, the PrivacyCase is a highly recommended tool that should be used to counter mass surveillance and hackers from gaining access to confidential and private data.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;blockquote class=&quot;embedly-card&quot; data-card-controls=&quot;1&quot; data-card-align=&quot;center&quot; data-card-theme=&quot;light&quot; data-card-key=&quot;2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7&quot;&gt;\\n&lt;h4&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;https://youtu.be/_qSFwHbZoBU&quot;&gt;PrivacyCase Product Description&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/h4&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;What Is PrivacyCase&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;/blockquote&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;&lt;script async src=&quot;//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js&quot; charset=&quot;UTF-8&quot;&gt;&lt;/script&gt;&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;h3&gt;Folder Lock (&lt;a href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/folder-lock/id372925917?mt=8&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener&quot;&gt;iOS&lt;/a&gt;/&lt;a href=&quot;https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.newsoftwares.folderlock_v1&amp;amp;hl=en&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener&quot;&gt;Android&lt;/a&gt;)&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;In terms of an app-based solution that can help to protect the files that are stored on the device, Folder Lock password protects the selected file on the device so that even if the phone is lost or stolen, the data cannot be accessed. Functional for both large and small files, the app is extremely intelligent in protecting the files as users can get notification on suspicious activities regarding their files such as temporary unlocks or compromised data. Furthermore, users will also be given a notification if they unlock a file but forget to lock it again to ensure that files are never left unprotected for a long period of time accidentally. As the password is not stored anywhere, there is a very small possibility that it can be hacked or stolen, making Folder Lock one of the best tools that can be used for those who store confidential and private data on their mobile phones.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;h3&gt;SSE &amp;#8211; Universal Encryption App (&lt;a href=&quot;https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paranoiaworks.unicus.android.sse&amp;amp;hl=en&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener&quot;&gt;Android&lt;/a&gt;)&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Beyond simply being able to password protect files with Folder Lock, an added layer of file security involves encryption which is essentially converting information into code so that it cannot be accessed without being decrypted. With this, SSE – Universal Encryption App is a tool that encrypts files directly on the phone so that it can never be compromised. For example, some of the files that can be encrypted include text, emails, and passwords which ensures a secure location for the majority of information in a single place. Introducing advanced algorithms for the strongest possible security, users are able to keep their files on their phone with a high degree of peace of mind. As SSE – Universal Encryption App is available on desktop and web versions as well, the data that is encrypted on one location can be decrypted on another to make file transferring extremely secure. One of the most interesting features of the app is that it can also engage in steganography so that messages can be hidden in image files. With this, if a user needs to save a password or message on their phone, the app can convert it into an image and then decrypt it later in order to access it while the message remains hidden to everyone else.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;h3&gt;Send Anywhere (&lt;a href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/send-anywhere-file-transfer/id596642855?mt=8&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener&quot;&gt;iOS&lt;/a&gt;/&lt;a href=&quot;https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.estmob.android.sendanywhere&amp;amp;hl=en&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener&quot;&gt;Android&lt;/a&gt;)&lt;/h3&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;One of the most vulnerable moments in storing files on the mobile device is during the transfer process, especially if it is being done through the internet which opens opportunities for intercepting the data. As a result, Send Anywhere is a recommended tool that secures this process. When sharing files without a cord, the app requires a 6-digit key which will then grant access to the files otherwise it would be locked. With this, even if the network is compromised during the file transfer process, the files will remain safe as a result of the passcode. Beyond this, sharing a file is made easy as it can be done through generating a link that can be shared with others. In order to further protect this process, the link is only live for a limited period of time before it is automatically broken and can no longer be accessed which limits the risk associated with sending data. In transferring files of any size that are confidential, Send Anywhere is a tool that should be utilized to ensure its protection.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Although mobile phones are continuously improving in their security measures to protect the files that are stored, there still exist many points of vulnerability that can lead to compromised data. As a result of the increase in surveillance and cyber-attacks that have occurred, the apps and tools listed in this article are highly recommended to ensure the greatest degree of file security in terms of the transfer, storage, and management phases.&lt;/p&gt;\\n\",\n \"publisher\": {\n \"@type\": \"Organization\",\n \"name\": \"Appolicious mobile apps\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/\",\n \"logo\": {\n \"@type\": \"ImageObject\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/appologo.png\"\n }\n },\n \"author\": {\n \"@type\": \"Person\",\n \"name\": \"kevin_chau\",\n \"description\": \"model.authorInformation[author][3]\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/author/kevin_chau\",\n \"image\": {\n \"@type\": \"ImageObject\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/author/kevin_chau.png\",\n \"contentUrl\": \"https://appolicious.com/author/kevin_chau.png\",\n \"encodingFormat\": \"image/jpeg\",\n \"width\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"128\"\n },\n \"height\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"128\"\n }\n }\n }\n}</script>","<script type='application/ld+json'>{\n \"@context\": \"http://schema.org/\",\n \"@type\": \"Article\",\n \"url\": \"https://appolicious.com/sdorica-sunset-review-match-stuff-matches-rpg-surprisingly-well\",\n \"image\": {\n \"@type\": \"ImageObject\",\n \"name\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/sdorica-650x350.jpg\",\n \"url\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/sdorica-650x350.jpg\",\n \"sameAs\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/sdorica-650x350.jpg\",\n \"thumbnailUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/sdorica-650x350.jpg\",\n \"contentUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/sdorica-650x350.jpg\",\n \"encodingFormat\": \"image/png\",\n \"width\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"550\"\n },\n \"height\": {\n \"@type\": \"Intangible\",\n \"name\": \"350\"\n }\n },\n \"mainEntityOfPage\": \"https://appolicious.com/sdorica-sunset-review-match-stuff-matches-rpg-surprisingly-well\",\n \"datePublished\": \"2018-05-14T16:09:25\",\n \"dateModified\": \"2018-05-14T16:09:25\",\n \"copyrightYear\": \"2018\",\n \"inLanguage\": \"en_US\",\n \"name\": \"Sdorica &#8211; Sunset review &#8211; Match Stuff Matches RPG Surprisingly Well\",\n \"headline\": \"Sdorica &#8211; Sunset review &#8211; Match Stuff Matches RPG Surprisingly Well\",\n \"description\": \"Sdorica &amp;#8211; Sunset is a match-stuff RPG that tries to do something a little special with the genre.\\n\",\n \"articleSection\": \"Puzzle\",\n \"keywords\": \"Puzzle\",\n \"thumbnailUrl\": \"https://backend.appolicious.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/sdorica-430x430.jpg\",\n \"articleBody\": \"&lt;div class=&quot;fcbk_share&quot;&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;fcbk_like&quot;&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;fb-like&quot; data-href=&quot;https://backend.appolicious.com/sdorica-sunset-review-match-stuff-matches-rpg-surprisingly-well/&quot; data-colorscheme=&quot;light&quot; data-layout=&quot;button_count&quot; data-action=&quot;like&quot; data-share=&quot;false&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;p&gt;The generally described genre of “matching” games is a very broad category – matching similar colours to achieve some kind of effect or victory is a game as old as time.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;However, Sdorica – Sunset pairs this with a story-based RPG experience directly tied to the matching games.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;blockquote class=&quot;embedly-card&quot; data-card-controls=&quot;1&quot; data-card-align=&quot;center&quot; data-card-theme=&quot;light&quot; data-card-key=&quot;2b6e83bf70404a53ba1a6a86809725e7&quot;&gt;\\n&lt;h4&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;https://youtu.be/OhsewRORmHk&quot;&gt;YouTube&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/h4&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;No Description&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;/blockquote&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;&lt;script async src=&quot;//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js&quot; charset=&quot;UTF-8&quot;&gt;&lt;/script&gt;&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Starting as many anime-based games often seem to do, you start the game far in the future, going through a tutorial section, only to be then propelled back in time to the very beginning of the story. A military officer meets a giant tiger, as well as a luckily a talented magic user, fully rounding out your party.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Combat plays out by swiping at least two of the same coloured balls along the bottom section of the interface. As you swipe over them, you’re made aware of the total damage dealt by your attacks, depending on the colour.

As each ball floats in a line from the side, you can strategically plan out your battle plan; you know you’re going to need to attack more hard at a certain time, so try to sync up the colours properly when you need them.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Outside of the combat levels itself, the overland map is confusing to the extreme – there are extraneous menus, UI icons and weird stuff everywhere, so it starts to leave you confused beyond belief.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;Luckily though, except for leveling up your individual characters, there’s not much you need to pay attention to with the rest of the level. It’s the combat levels themselves that are the important thing.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;The story everything is based on is in-depth and decently well written – there are a lot of cutesy moments, anime-esque expressions performed by the characters are animated beautifully, with nice little details constantly hidden within.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;p&gt;The detail within the story is&amp;#8230; well&amp;#8230; it’s a bit silly and very common to anime storylines, but that doesn’t make it &lt;em&gt;bad&lt;/em&gt;, per se. It just makes it very silly.&lt;!-- Start Shortcoder content --&gt;&lt;blockquote class=&quot;right mainquote&quot;&gt;The detail within the story is... well... it’s a bit silly and very common to anime storylines, but that doesn’t make it &lt;em&gt;bad&lt;/em&gt;, per se.

Assuming you’re looking for some decent story-based game that manages to blend its gameplay elements well, you likely won’t go wrong with Sdorica – Sunset.&lt;/p&gt;\\n&lt;a name=&quot;review&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;review&quot;&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;h2&gt;Our Rating&lt;/h2&gt;\\n\\t\\t&lt;div class=&quot;mainbox&quot;&gt;\\n\\t\\t\\t&lt;div class=&quot;procons&quot;&gt;\\n\\t&lt;table&gt;\\n\\t\\t\\t&lt;tr&gt;&lt;th&gt;Pros&lt;/th&gt;&lt;th&gt;Cons&lt;/th&gt;&lt;/tr&gt;\\n\\t\\t\\t&lt;tr&gt;&lt;td&gt;The gameplay is nicely blended between the two genres.
