If you've used MyFitnessPal or any other kind of food logging app, you'd know that it can be daunting to log every single thing you eat. And if you've tried to follow diets to lose weight or build muscle, you'd know that there are so many strategies and that implementing them takes a lot of work and time especially when you take on the impossible task of finding adequate recipes and organizing them in a way that makes sense. Having lived through both scenarios, I am completely drawn to Eat This Much's concept.
Instead of painstakingly logging what you ate and discovering at the end of the day that you didn't meet your goal, or browsing through thousands of recipes trying to find the ones that seem to fit your goal, you just tell Eat This Much what your dietary preference and fitness goals are, and it uses its smarts to automate everything and take the guesswork out of meal planning.

Opera Max isn't a browser, but it utilizes the company's well known data compression prowess to save you a lot of bandwidth and Megabytes, regardless of the app you're using to sip through your data. However, prior to today, Max was only optimized for phones and didn't work well, or at all, on tablets.
With version 1.7.5, Opera Max is adding a tablet layout that utilizes the bigger screen estate to display more of your monitored app usage, data compression results, and settings. You can enable Opera Max on your data network, your WiFi connection, or both. You can blacklist some apps, allowing them to use as much bandwidth as they want, or go drastic and prevent an app's background data usage if you don't like what it's doing when you're not using it.

Telegram has just received a huge update to version 3.8 with plenty of goodies for all its loyal users to enjoy. There's a pretty important new version of the Bots API, but before we get to that, the app also got redesigned chat screens and a couple of small functional changes too.
I don't use Telegram enough to be able to tell the difference between these new chat screens (in the image above this post) and the old ones, but the most apparent change to me is that the bubble's anchor is at the bottom now as opposed to slightly higher. Read More
Ten cents. What can you buy at the store with ten cents? Nothing. You can't even buy a Tootsie Roll Pop for that price, those suckers cost at least a quarter now! You might not be able to buy any physical goods for a dime these days, but today you can buy an awesome game with mechanized warfare for that price. The game I'm talking about is Epic War Tower Defense 2 by developer AMT games.
Epic War TD 2 has been out for a little over a year now, so it's likely this sale is a just a way for the developer to drum up interest for a new title by getting naïve tech bloggers to write about the steep discount in an... Read More
It was almost a year ago that Google posted the session list for I/O 2015 with an interesting "voice access" talk. That was eventually removed from the schedule and we didn't hear anything about it in Android M. Now, Google has announced Voice Actions as a beta in the Play Store (Android 5.0 and higher). Once you join up, you can install the app and literally control your entire phone by voice. It's incredibly cool. Read More
