Sunrise Calendar

Finally! A great calendar application.

It’s only been a week but i’m impressed with Sunrise Calendar, especially with how well it is integrates with various other applications i’m using (Evernote, Toodledo, Google Calendar).

I will slowly start phasing out Toodledo (which i like) because i want to streamline/consolidate things a bit and use a combination of Evernote and Sunrise for my reminders and To Do Lists.

Apart from the tablet versions there is also a web version.

Q2 Internet Radio

My goddaughter’s birthday (6 years old) is coming up next week and she wanted a device so that she could listen to music. Ideally, that something would have been an Ipod touch but it’s far too expensive for a 6 year old. So i got her this Q2 speaker from amazon to listen to internet radio music in her room.

It’s brilliant and because it’s a 2 year old device it’s very reasonably priced now. What Hi-Fi rated it with 5* at GBP90. Easy to setup (simply drag and drop stations) and smart in how you can change the channels and volume levels simply by moving it around.

“No displays, knobs, buttons, switches or dials, simply flip the Q2 Radio to change channels and tilt to adjust the volume.”

I set it up yesterday so that it’s ready to use. If it wasn’t pink i would have kept it for myself. 🙂

Spotify

Spotify Logo New

Last Sunday i got a text from a friend who lives in London.

“Try Spotify. I think it works in CY.”

I had tried both Spotify and Pandora before but neither provided the service in Cyprus unless you messed around with the network/ip etc. But Spotify is now available (Pandora is not) and it’s fantastic. While i enjoyed Jango for what it was this is on a different level in terms of content and options. With the premium service you can also download albums and listen to them offline.
