Jaxx wallet

The days are gone when you had to manage Blockchain assets manually and in the process learn new systems, wallets and interfaces. Decentral launched their new wallet Jaxx which supports highly valued Blockchain assets (BTC, ZEC, LTC, Doge, Dash, ETH, ETC, DAO, REP) and continues to add more cryptocurrencies based on the demand of the communities.

It also ships with ShapeShift integration this means you can exchange the cryptocurrencies without exiting the wallet. (For example, if you are interested in investing in ZCash by exchanging it with Bitcoin.)

Security wise it is quite secure because it keeps the private key on the device and not the centralized servers.

The best part is, it supports all the popular OS platforms and recovering the assets is easy because you only require a single recovery pass phase.

Here are some screenshots of the wallet. Don’t send funds to these addresses.

This is my first ever write up in the cryptocurrency world, feedback is always accepted, let me know what you think about this wallet, I would like to hear from you guys.

Typora Markdown editor

Typora is a free cross-platform Markdown editor for Mac/Windows/Linux), it currently in beta stage and under active development. You might be thinking not another Markdown editor, with keyboard shortcuts and side panel preview and custom CSS options. Typora is a WYSIWYG (WhatYouSeeIsWhatYouGet) editor, this means you would not have a separate preview panel to the side for preview, this is a great way for writing content, because your source editor is your preview editor, that updates as you are typing, so you have more screen space for writing and focus while typing will be on the same window and not a separate panel. As the video below

It is one of the best Markdown editors I have ever used till date.

It has many other features similar to the other Markdown editors like Mou

  • Custom theme
  • Font customization
  • Window style(how the app should appear)
  • Word count

It is a great editor for a writer who wants to edit and view the preview in the same place and wants to have a larger amount of screen space used for editing area. Thank you for reading, if you have any question feel free to leave a comment below.

WhatsApp on Mac

WhatsApp had recently made their online web service available for user to connect their smartphone using QR Code, this let the user access WhatsApp with a Web UI, this could be done by scanning the QR Code with your smartphone camera

This service turned very popular, the problem with this was you need to have a web browser tab open or sometimes a separate new window for the Web Interface.

So, I discovered this app while browsing GitHub for interesting projects, I discovered ChitChat an open source, app available for Mac.

I tried it out and found it interesting and was the right solution for this problem.

You can install it by downloading it from here

This application lets you have WhatsApp Web as a Mac app and integrates well with the Notification Center and lets you access some options from the Apple menu bar.

The app is under active development, so there might be a few bugs, and certain features might not be currently completely functional like the media upload option

App Review: Pocket

Pocket is an app that lets you save web content for reading it later, it is a great app for users, like me who like reading on the go and want to access all their web content in one place.

It lets you save the specific web page using a browser extension or pasting the URL in the “Save a URL” option, in its web interface or Chrome app or mobile application.

The app is available on a wide range of popular platforms, which lets you access all the content you love reading, on every device you have this app installed.

It automatically syncs your content on all your devices. It offers offline support, which makes it a must have for users who don’t use mobile data or don’t have internet access in every place they travel.

I discovered this app while searching for an app that stores all my web content, that can be made available on all my devices, so it would save my time and let me read a thing I love when I am at college in my free.

The app offers tagging which is a very helpful, especially if you read web content on various genres and like to sort, things you are going to read. It also lets you archive and ticks articles you have read so you have only a list of things you have not read.

The app comes with a dark theme, which turns the background to dark gray and gray text, it’s good for users who read in the night or who don’t like a white background with black text.

I am not a big fan of the dark theme, because it does not style everything nicely and only makes text reading better in dark.

The overall styling feels very nice.

The app has made me more comfortable and systematic because it lets me manage and sort web content, I love reading and I don’t have to keep a lot of tabs open in my browser when I come back home for continuing to read. This app is a lifestyle changer as a reader.

The app sports a feature called “Listen”, it lets the app read for you.

Recently the Pocket team added a recommended list, this list will offer content based on the genre you read and prefer reading and will try its best to serve relevant content, that you might love reading.

In my case, most of the time the app has given me relevant content.

Everything at once.

The app is great for reading, offers dark theme, available on all the popular platforms, saves time and has a nice way of sorting, offers an offline reading. Recommended list give the right recommendations most of the time, a must have if you read a lot of webs content

With the launch of iOS 9 and updated version of Pocket, you can now search your web content using spotlight. It also has an option called “Listen” that lets the app read for you in “Siri’s voice”.
