Review - Le Menu Dit translate menus from English to French without an Internet connection (2.0)

As a faithful reader of this site, you might’ve noticed that we’ve just reviewed this application, however this is version 2.0, a new full point release. The previous review you can read here.

Le Menu Dit has a better translation in this version as well as an improved user interface with better instructions and a new Feedback page. So let’s translate some menus and see for the results.

The first menu I tried was interesting because it has fish too, fishes are hard to recognise when you don’t speak the language, while everyone worldwide knows what chicken or taco means. “6 Oysters on the half shell” was translated into “6 hunters sur la demi-coquille”.

Review - UsefulAlarm -Ringtones and Radio Player

iOS developer Stefano Galizia from Beautiful apps, has released his third application in the Appstore, this time it’s an alarm app. Not just an average alarm app, but a useful one like the name implies.

Until now I must admit that I’ve only used the standard iOS alarm since 2007, but UsefulAlarm got me interested to change this habit. The app can wake you up with radio, which is something I really like. At work I listen in the morning to News radio and the afternoon to alternative radio.

This week I’ve been waking up with my favourite radiostation and must admit that this is really much nicer, it’s more subtle and relaxed to wakeup versus the harsh normal iOS wakeup sound.

Review - Ctrip travel agent app

This week we are reviewing a travel app, it’s called Ctrip. You might guess from the name that it’s a Chinese travel app. In fact Ctrip is China’s biggest and leading travel agent, which has released a nice iPhone application.

For our international readers it’s an opportunity to learn about Ctrip because they are a competitor with the booking.com’s of this world.

Although Ctrip is Chinese, it doesn’t mean that you can’t use it if you’re not from China. By default the app gives hotel prices in Yen, but that can easily be changed to almost any important currency of the world, in the settings menu. The same applies for languages.

At first glance the app looks nice (important) and is super intuitive, all scrolls smooth and is quick. The app consists of 4 main topics;

1. Hotels
2. Flights
3. Trains
4. Flight Status

Another FBI bummer - USMobile’s Scramble3 app lets you call under the radar

USMobile, a developer of private mobile services, today launched Scrambl3 (Scrambl3.com, pronounced “scramble”), a smartphone App for the iPhone and iPad enabling users to make the world’s most secure calls and messages (requires iOS 9.2 or higher). USMobile’s collaboration with the NSA, IBM and Apple has produced the first Enterprise-grade Calling and Messaging App for the iPhone and iPad.

What Makes Scrambl3 So Secure?

First Enterprise-grade secure mobile voice and messaging App illustrated
“Existing consumer-grade calling and messaging mobile Apps from Blackberry, Skype, WhatsApp, Symphony, Wickr, Silent Circle and others don’t go far enough to protect people from hackers seeking high-value information,” said USMobile CEO Jon Hanour. “Only Scrambl3 takes the additional, critical, step of creating a ‘Dark Internet Tunnel,’ – USMobile’s Top Secret-grade Virtual Private Network (VPN). In this unique way, communication is ‘Cloaked,’ or made invisible to those who wish to intercept it,” said Hanour, calling the result “the first Enterprise-grade mobile security App.”
