Infuse 6 Review

Infuse is for people with large local media libraries. For those who use Plex, have shows on USB sticks or cloud storage, Infuse is perfect for.

Xiaomi Mi Band 3 Review

The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is the best budget fitness tracker you’ll find online. With the ability to track exercise, heart rate and sleep, the Mi Band 3 has nearly all the features of the Fitbit Charge 3, but for under a quarter of the price.

At £26.99, the Mi Band 3 is a great choice for those who want fitness tracking at an affordable price, but still get all the features they need, including a OLED screen and app notifications.

Blitzwolf BW-FYE5 True Wireless Earphones Review

I’ve been using the Blitzwolf BW-FYE1 as my daily drivers since I received them, and was delighted to be able to review the FYE5, a different version of them.

These come in a small pill shaped charging case, with small circle shaped earphones. With 1.5 hours of continuous listening, and the ability to be charged 3 times by the case, the BW-FYE5 are a nice set of budget, truly wireless earphones.

Marvis Music Player – A Review

I’ve began using my local library to listen to music, moving away from streaming services such as Spotify. However, I’ve never really been a fan of the Apple Music interface, and that’s where Marvis comes in. Marvis offers a better interface for Music.app. With support for Apple Music or your library, Marvis lets you have a greatly customisable interface and other powerful features.

Uni-Ball Kuru Toga Mechanical Pencil – A Review

I’ve been using mechanical pencils for years – mainly an orange Parker Jotter style one. However, one thing I disliked about the pencil was that the lead wear down and become smooth on one side, and you’d often have to rotate the pencil in order to keep on the sharp side of the lead. The pencil in this review, the Uni-Ball Kuru Toga, does this automatically. Each time the lead hits paper, the lead is rotated, ensuring that your lead is always sharp.

ProtonVPN Review

The VPN market is a crowded space, with thousands of different apps offering different pricing structures, features, security levels and speeds.

If you know of ProtonMail, chances are you know of ProtonVPN, by the same developers. Privacy is now a big thing, with many people becoming more aware of the dangers of the internet, and more and more people wanting to have more privacy when they are online.

Offered for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS, you can use ProtonVPN on all your devices. ProtonVPN is a great free, and paid, VPN service. It’s secure, reliable, has good terms and conditions, and is made by a trusted company. However, there are also drawbacks, which will be looked at in this review.

Why I Switched from Todoist to Things 3

I used to be an avid user of Todoist. The app was available on all platforms, even web, and I liked the ability to set smart filters to see the tasks I wanted to, and also the karma feature. However, Todoist was missing one vital feature that I’ve covered in both my Things 3 review, and in my post on how I use Things 3.

If you want to read an in-depth comparison of Things and Todoist, you can do so here.

Things vs Todoist

Todoist and Things 3 are some of the most popular todo apps on the market. Both have their pros and cons – Todoist is available on all platforms and has powerful sorting features, whilst Things 3 is beautifully designed and has a great interface.

So, which one is right for you?

KeySmart Accessories Review – Pliers and Expansion Pack

Since I began using my KeySmart around a month ago, I have added two accessories sold by KeySmart to it. The pliers, as they are always handy to have, and the KeySmart expansion pack. These allow you to expand your KeySmart so you can fit more keys onto it, or in my case, have an easier time fitting a Chubb key into the KeySmart.
