******************

I just saw this app on Google Play and I tried it. I think it is indeed a must-have for smartphones! It has 32 useful apps which are listed above. The purpose of this post is just to show you the different apps within the Smart Kit 360 app. Most of the app’s functionalities are self-explanatory anyway and I do not want to bore you with too much details.

Notepad and Translator

Exercise and Free Music

File Manager and Trim Audio

Metronome and Recorder

Flashlight and Mirror

Magnifier and Code Scan

Cleaner and Battery Saver

Stopwatch and Checklist

Abacus and Calculator

Currency and Unit Converter

Altimeter and Compass

Heart Rate Monitor ad Leveller

Magnetic and Map

Protractor and Ruler

Sound Meter and Tuner

Speedometer and Vibrometer

Quite a lot of apps, isn’t it? The advantage is that you do not need to install separate apps for the ruler, unit converter, etc thus this app helps lower RAM consumption.

The apps are also easy to use since you can activate widgets for each of them.

Unfortunately, my phone is just a very basic smartphone thus I was not able to test the apps requiring sensors (magnetic sensors, leveller etc). The heart rate monitor is what intrigued me, I wonder how it works. What do you think?

Try this app now! 🙂

******************************

This app basically gives you free recipes. It has many features such as the recipe book, shopping list, shake n’ make, snap n’ cook and get inspired. These features caught my attention, although I do not know how to cook (haha).

Here are some of the recipe categories that are available in the app. I cannot show everything here since there are lots of categories.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

You can also upload your own recipes:

Here is a sample of one recipe (pad thai). As you can see, the app provides you with the preparation time, cooking time, number of servings and the nutrition details. Great isn’t it? You can save the recipe by clicking the “heart” symbol. The ingredients and directions are listed at the bottom. Suggestions for other recipes are also listed at the end.

Another nice feature is the Shake N’ Make. This is very handy if you do not know what dish to cook using the ingredients you currently have on hand. You only need to select the ingredients you have and then shake your phone. The app will then give you recipes that you can use to cook the ingredients that you have. Amazing!

I did one example here: I selected pineapple, orange, mango and strawberry. The app gave me recipe suggestions such as sorbet, salsa and smoothie.

The last feature is the Snap N’ Cook. It is similar to the Shake N’ Make, but you will snap photos of your ingredients and the app will detect your ingredients. Shake your phone and then get recipe suggestions. I haven’t tried this actually, but will do this as soon as I am able.

Try this app! 🙂

Features (taken from Google Play):

Best of 2016 App, Top Trending App and Best Self-Improvement App selected by Google Play.

Water Drink Reminder reminds you to drink enough water. Proper hydration keeps your skin healthy and helps you lose weight.
Featured by Google Play! No.1 heath app over 30 countries, top 5 over 90 countries! The best water tracker app ever! Helps you stay hydrated.

GOOGLE PLAY AWARD: TOP DEVELOPER
The Water Drink Reminder now supports Google Fit

Do you drink enough water?
Do you always forget to drink water regularly?
Are you in good shape?
You need Water Drink Reminder – a water tracker app to help you develop good habits of water drinking!

This water tracker app reminds you to drink water every day to keep you hydrated.

Just enter your current weight, and Water Drink Reminder will help you determine how much water your body needs every day. Remember to update the app each time you drink a cup of water. Then the app will remind you when it’s time for another drink. Hydration helper not only tracks what you drink, but also reminds you when it’s time for another drink.

The benefits of drinking water:
* Stay in shape and keep fit; water is calorie free
* Clears up your skin
* Keeps your skin and nails healthy
* Helps prevent kidney stones
* Keeps you hydrated

Key Features include:
* Water tracker that will remind you when and how much water to drink throughout the day
* Customized cup and standard (oz) or metric (ml) units
* You can set your start and end time to drink water for each day
* Graph and logs of your schedule
* Syncs weight data with Google Fit.
* Syncs weight and drink water data with S Health.
* You can login through your Google account.
* You can backup and restore your drinking data through the water tracker.

In our day-to day life, drinking water regularly can be challenging, despite its numerous health benefits. This water tracker app makes it easier to stay hydrated. It may even help you lose weight and prevent certain illnesses.

drinkwater-2I am one of those people who isn’t a fan of drinking water (I know, it sounds awful, but I prefer juice or coffee over plain water), but I am improving now because of this app.

This app tracks the volume of water you have consumed, and also reminds you if you are lagging behind your drink target. The volume of water needed is based on your weight.

The app allows you to customize your cup size/volume, thus I used the 250 ml cup here for consistency. You can also opt to activate notifications/reminders so you don’t forget to drink.

As of now, I don’t use the reminders anymore because I always remember to drink. I now use the app just to track my water consumption, to make sure I am well hydrated.

 

 

 

So for you people out there, try this app! I am certain it will help you out.
