Helpful Apps

Post by Dena M Dahl »

Hi all,

I wanted to share a couple of apps I am now using that I find quite helpful. The first one is called Blur (formerly Do Not Track Me). It is a method of blocking your real email address whenever signing up for online newsletters, etc, so that companies are not able to track your information.

It masks your email address by assigning an email that looks somewhat like Sara's passwords :) which then forward to your real email addy. https://www.abine.com/index.html

For those on Facebook, http://socialfixer.com/ helps streamline FB, making it much nicer to use.

Thank you, Dena!

Another helpful one that many of you already know about is Ad Block Plus. It blocks ads that pop up in your web browser or Facebook.

And there's https://justgetflux.com/.
From the website:

Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow?

Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?

During the day, computer screens look good—they're designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn't be looking at the sun.

f.lux
f.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.

It's even possible that you're staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.

Good Sabbath,

A Bible App i'd recommend, for those with smart devices, is the "Strong's Concordance with KJV" (Tecarta INc.) This application is the best $1.99 purchase I've made, as it is excellent with researching the original Hebrew and Greek words.
