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.

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”.

Korora 21 Darla Cinnamon Review

Korora Linux is a Linux distribution based on Fedora. Korora is basically a supercharged build of Fedora that comes with various flavors that make the Linux experience even better. It offers some of the desktop environments, that official spins of Fedora don’t offer. Korora offers Cinnamon based distribution that sports the Cinnamon desktop environment, that we are going to review today, and comes with the some really good application choices that is common in every build on Korora and one of the reasons why I use Korora over Fedora.

Korora Cinnamon  Terminal

In my opinion Korora fixes some of the issues that the stock builds of Fedora have, like good font library, media encoders and many other minor issues.

It also comes with extra repositories like RPMFusion and Google Chrome repositories. Korora is a great Linux distribution if you prefer Yum or RPM based Linux distributions and you want to have a great desktop environment experience at the same time spend less in configuring the system in your preference.

Korora is one of those Linux distributions that comes with a great Linux desktop experience without loosing functionality. The Cinnamon desktop environment works very smoothly and is really very snappy in response time and experience. Korora has really good driver support. The Wifi Card on my laptop (Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300) works better on Korora compared to most Linux distributions and delivers the signal strength I require.

After customizing Korora with change of theme Cinnamon theme and the GTK theme (Numix theme). I felt it was perfect and could not get any better.

Korora Cinnamon Terminal U-name

Korora works really great on my system, It runs on lower operational temperature compared to other Linux distributions.

After installing the additional drivers the Cinnamon desktop environment turned even more snappier.

Korora Linux is one of those Linux distributions that can deliver a really good desktop environment experience and the same time serve the purpose and let you do your work you love to do on your system without any issues.
