Keeper DNA uses a person’s connected objects and IoT devices to create a unique “Keeper DNA Profile” for that user’s identity. It can be thought of similar to DNA in the human body; a unique “strand” of molecules (in this case, unique devices and physical factors) that define and identify a person. With Keeper DNA, users no longer have to manually enter numeric two-factor codes on their devices to access Keeper.
Keeper DNA is launching this breakthrough solution on Apple Watch. Users simply register their Apple Watch as part of their Keeper DNA profile and with one touch, verify their identity for fast, secure access to their Keeper vault on all their iOS devices including iPhone®, iPad®, iPod Touch® and Mac computers.
Easy Ten reinvents language learning with new Apple Watch App: the ability to learn ten foreign words per day without using your iPhone! During the day, users will receive “push” notifications with ten un-translated foreign words. To check if they have memorized words they have to take a short quiz and pick the correct translation. Learning ten foreign words a day is now as easy as checking the time. We like to call this “learning on the go.”
It doesn’t matter where the wearer is located or what their activities are: sports, meetings, lunch in a restaurant, driving a car – Apple Watch is with them at all times. For example, Easy Ten lets anyone combine a 15-minute morning run with learning a foreign language. Over a year, an Easy Ten user can learn 3000 words from seven foreign languages – enough for entry level communication. Now you can learn a foreign language anywhere, anytime, without the iPhone via Apple Watch.

NDrive you might’ve heard and read about on our site in one of the GPS review articles we’ve published before. Recently I was getting annoyed with the latest update of Navigon, where it kept asking me to calibrate the compass. One a small trip it happened twice and I looked foolish as a head of the family doing the calibrate yoga session. Because my partner leaves on holidays earlier than me, I don’t want to bother her with that, so I decided to look for new GPS software in the App Store.
There I found NLife (version 1.4.14), it has been released a while ago now, and it’s a rewrite of NDrive which is no longer available at the moment. I decided to buy the Western Europe Maps which are from TomTom and paid around 40 Euros for a lifetime license. I threw in another 10 Euros for the traffic cameras which is a yearly fee. Not too bad if they’re updated actively. I didn’t install the traffic feature because I don’t drive daily.
