Glad you enjoyed it!

I tend to place a high priority on looks in apps. Not always, but many times. Reddit is no exception. RiF looks too dense to me, the font is too small, and it resembles the website way too much. I like Relay for how nice and airy it looks, there's a bit of space between posts. It's smooth, and I can scroll between comments using the volume key.

I greatly prefer My Effectiveness over Todoist. The main reason that made me shun Todoist was it's complexity and the requirement to sign up with an account or login using Facebook/Google. In contrast, ME is free and is based on your phone. But the biggest thing keeping me with ME is it's philosophy. It helps you keep everything in context, to sort to dos (or "actions", the way they call them) by not priority but objective ("Importance") and subjective ("Urgent") urgency. The way it is designed is based on the book 7 habits of highly effective people (Amazon, university PDF), which I haven't read but just based on this app is probably worth a read.

I highly recommend you check out their description of how the app is intended to be used.

Edit: Just saw your edit. Yeah, aCalendar and Etar are pretty familiar. What sold me on Etar was that it is open source and completely free, no in app purchases even. The developer even put his github source on the app page. I've been trying to move to FOSS (free and open source software) apps as much as possible. My only concern is that the app hasn't been updated since December 6. Not really a major concern for now, since it works great and looks great with not bugs that I can tell, but it makes me wonder if it is still in development.

Sounds like a lot of goddamn control over my phone being given to an alarm clock. That permission list is full of a whole mess of things I don't generally feel comfortable existing inside a solitary app, especially one that's meant to serve such a simple purpose.

You want an obnoxious but effective alarm clock that doesn't require a crazy amount of control over your phone? Try something like Clocky. That wandering asshole does a great job of prying you out of bed & pissing you off early in the morning.

Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but I could never bring myself to trust an app like this.

Any to-do app would work. I'm a big fan of Todoist, and one of the features is that it allows you to import lists other people have made. Here's a template for keeping a clean house inspired by Mrs. Meyer's Clean Home.

VPNs don't really work on the Play Store afaik. It might be easier getting it from the Amazon app store instead.

I used to use it with Tunnelbear and it worked fine. Just make sure your VPN and Amazon account are set to the same country.

If you want to do WiFi streaming, install $3.50 BubbleUPnP on the phone and use the Windows 10 built-in DLNA streaming. If you're on Ubuntu you can install pulseaudio-dlna and use it as output from sound settings. I'm sure there's something for Mac as well.

For USB, what you're looking for is called a USB DAC. If you're really strapped for cash and don't have fancy tastes in sound quality, or quality headphones, then one of these $5-7 puppies will take care of it. Quality is touch and go, some may be DOA and need replacing, but they'll get the job done. You can also go for a $20 Signstek (PCM2704), but I wouldn't recommend more expensive ones without knowing what headphones you're using and what you want from them.

If you do, I can recommend the $40 FiiO K1, $65 SMSL SD793-II or $75 FiiO E10K, but if you do that you should also look into putting $50-200 into decent headphones and you're probably not looking for that.

Whatever you do DO NOT get USB headphones. Decent ones are expensive, cheap ones are absolute crap. A $5 DAC like above and a $25 pair of Sennheiser HD202 will be better and can be replaced separately or even taken apart and repaired if they break.

No smartphone device can do that on its own. All of them use the external micro to record sound. Actually, you need a special device for that. There is one new kind of earphone that can do that, and are the GameDuck earphones

Hope it helps you ;)

u/Trek7553 · 2 pointsr/androidapps

I use this one. It sticks out a little far so I can't leave it plugged in all the time, but it works great. I use Torque Pro for the app.

u/piggybankcowboy · 2 pointsr/androidapps

Understandable. Keep an eye on it on Amazon, I've seen it go on sale and drop to your target price range, and for a day back in November, it was free. It's very popular, and will likely see more sales.

Bought 3 before I got one to work on my 02 Grand Prix. GM doesn't work with them all. Of course NONE of the products info tell you this.
Bought the BAFX which worked.

This is a wonderful device, get some Velcro from home depot. I think it comes in 3" strips, cut that in half. Separate the velcro strip, stick one half on recorder, other half to what you want to adhere the recorder too. You can set it to only record when there is sound, set it so all the lights are off. You can place it somewhere and depending on noise level, it can record for up to three days, on one set of AAA batteries. Attach to your computer, download MP3.

As long as you go to sleep early enough to give yourself 6+ hours of sleep then it should get much easier to wake up on time after a week or so. Until then there's always Clocky

u/muhaski · 2 pointsr/androidapps

I gotcha. Time to invest in some headphones or a cheap pair of speakers! Either should outplay your phone speakers. You may also be able to grab a Stereo to RCA adapter which would allow you to send your audio output on your computer to the audio inputs on your tv.

u/mimetic-polyalloy · 1 pointr/androidapps

You should ask what the advantages of that one vs this one are. Mine is a third of the price and posits with my phone, laptop, and tablet running a few different programs.

u/eightbitchris · 1 pointr/androidapps

I have an S7 Edge. If the cards in your phone, just plug the cable you got with the phone in to the PC USB. I've also got one of these, but you don't need it.

Just plug it straight into the PC with the cable you use to charge it.

u/10GuyIsDrunk · 2 pointsr/androidapps

I played the fuck out of the latest Pokemon game while I quit, was a great distraction. Also obtain (however you have to) this book and give it a read.

u/sohegimmedawatch · 3 pointsr/androidapps

Get yourself a 2 amp charger and "charge only cables" from porta-pow.

DriveDroid didn't even work properly on Android 9 for me (no matter what iso image I tried to boot, I got errors about corrupted data). In my use case, I resorted to EtchDroid, an app that can write iso images on usb drives.

(You might need an extra cable to connect your flash memory to your smartphone. Example of USB C to USB A type)

u/makingtracks · 1 pointr/androidapps

Don't know about best, because I only have one.

BAFX Products - Bluetooth OBD2. $24 shipped from Amazon -

I don't use it for realtime stats, mostly to precheck before getting a smog check.

I dabbled a little bit with the realtime stats, and seems to be working as intended.

Works for what I need it for.

u/pavlpants · 3 pointsr/androidapps

You said your audio jack is broken. Can you buy a cheap USB to stereo out adapter and use that with normal speakers or headphones?

There are apps like SoundWire but I don't if anything like that will have low enough latency for gaming.

u/mkanet · 1 pointr/androidapps

It's actually even worse than that. They said if I want to record internal audio like it did with the Samsung version, I had to buy these headphones. I ended up buying the headphones and subscribing to their annual membership. Video recordings (with internal and/or external audio) are still better than other alternatives out there; but, it really rubbed me the wrong way. I don't think Mobizen wanted to do this. I heard they may have been forced to make this change due to Google policies due to copy protection concerns.
