Apps Plus Comms- Battlefront Part 10

Today, another pocket of resistance has sprung up on the planet Mustafar! Ernesto Guillermo and the Cake Loving Artist must put down a rogue Geonosian who threatens to plunge the galaxy into another round of Clone Wars. Unfortunately, he's created a shield of battleships between himself and our Star Destroyer, so we must blast our way through them to reach him. It's a good thing we're flying the most sophisticated fighter craft in the galaxy: TIE Fighters...

Apps Plus Comms- TIE Fighter Part 18

Today, Commander? AppsPlus continues to make way for the new space station! Imperial High Command has decided that the space station should be located right where a group of pirates has made their base. We would ask them nicely to move, but us Imperials do not negotiate with terrorists. So we blow them up.

Apps Plus Comms- Battlefront Part 9

Welcome back to Battlefront! The Republic has fallen and a New Order has risen to take its place. However, even though the Clone Wars are finished, the galaxy is not at peace. Small pockets of resistance fight back against Emperor Palpatine's rule. One of these groups of rebels is on Naboo, where the Queen there is raising an army of Jedi to overthrow the Empire. As loyal stormtroopers, we cannot let that happen, and now that we have our new armour, weapons, and tanks, not even an army of Jedi and a nearly invincible Queen can stop us!

App Bites #41: Fotor

Welcome back to another App Bite. Before the break we were talking about some of the best apps found on Windows 8 and we will continue this trend today with Fotor.


Fotor is a photo-editing app that lets you play around and do all the very basic type of editing things that you might like to do. I like to think of Fotor as a the photo editor tool for the people of casual intentions. So what can you edit? Well basic things like the tint, temperature, contrast, brightness, etc. You also can add borders, captions, effects, and you can crop the picture. So like I said these are very basic photo editing tools, but this isn't what makes the app great. What makes it great is how nice the setup is, how smooth everything works, and how great the overall experience is. For someone who just wants to quickly make some minor adjustments to their photo this app is perfect. So to those people I recommend checking out Fotor in the Windows 8 app store, or just follow the link here. (Note that Fotor is also on Android here and iOS here) (Second Note: Fotor is free on Windows 8 and Android but three dollars on iOS)

Recommendations of the Week: January 9th

And with that nice winter break I am back and alongside me is a plethora of posts. In other words the normal Apps Plus schedule is going to be reinstated, starting with Recommendations of the Week. So, let's begin.

Bask In It:

Yes many of you will have just received a few items for Christmas and now is the time to live it up. You've got all these great new items, now make use of them! We both know that in a few weeks time anything you got will seem like something you've had forever and you'll no longer get that excited feeling every time you look at it, so make use of that excitement while it is still around.


Of course now is also the time of the year that everyone sets some new years resolutions and starts going to the gym. And now is also around the time that people start getting lazy and stop going to the gym. So to them I say, you need to re-evaluate your resolutions. Pick something much smaller and more attainable. That way it is much easier to accomplish your goal and if you fail, you won't feel so bad. And remember, you're still in your prime, you've got decades and decades of new years resolutions to set ahead of you. So instead of aiming to knock 15 pounds off, why not aim for five? Sure it will take you three times as long to reach your goal, but you'll feel better and be much more likely to achieve it.
