Review: Animotica - Video Editor UWP

icon

First impressions can be deceptive. Animotica opens to a HTML front end and the fear is that this is an online editing service with a wrapper of some kind for Windows 10. However, there's also a proper editing UI and a great many trimming/merging/enhancement functions that can be applied successfully to both local and (e.g.) OneDrive-hosted photos and videos.

Review: mSecure UWP

icon

Unbelievably, we don't seem to have reviewed this secure database (i.e. secret stuff manager) system before on AAWP. Even in the days of the WP8.1 version. And at some point a Windows 10 UWP version was released... and we still didn't review it. Partly the developers' fault for not, you know, contacting us - ever, but we should have spotted it anyway. Making up for lost time, here's a look at the latest generation of this massively sophisticated personal security tool.

Review: iNi Reader UWP - finally!

icon

I have a confession to make - the 'finally!' in the title refers to my logistics, not to the application or its developer. 'ini Reader' has been a Windows Phone 8.1 application for years, letting users browse their Feedly aggregated news, and some time (cough - over a year) ago it got a big Windows 10 UWP rewrite. And it sat in my to-do list ever since. But I'm making that right with a review now.

Review: MapFactor GPS Navigator

icon

It's a fair cop - MapFactor GPS Navigator isn't new and is in fact a Windows Phone 8.1 application. But - interestingly - it uses bang up to date OSM (Open Street Map) err.... maps. Which, as I ranted recently, doesn't apply to Windows 10 Maps, which are missing recent roads. So is this worth using instead?

Review: Short.y UWP

icon

We've all seen 'short' URLs, and there are dozens of services which create them, but Short.y is a new UWP utility that lets you create short links on your Windows 10 phone/tablet/laptop, either manually or via 'Share'. As a bonus, it safely inspects where short links you've been sent actually point to. A top notch addition to any Windows 10 device.

Review: Wallpaper Studio 10 UWP

icon

Wallpapers first, Windows first. A fully featured wallpaper browsing, upload and management system, Wallpaper Studio 10 is also a shining example of how flexible, powerful and downright pretty a UWP application for Windows 10 can be.

Review: Pixel Battle: Gun Strike 3D UWP

icon

Take the retro cutesiness of 'pixel' artwork and splice in a full 3D world and FPS shooter, make sure that the in-app-purchases are sensible and restrained, and what have you got? A top UWP game, that's what. The graphics do look a little over-the-top in terms of deliberate pixellation, but the gameplay is top notch and everything's very well thought out.

Review: Kamal Star Lumia 950 Replacement Battery

icon

Possibly THE biggest 'Frequently Asked Question' in the Windows phone world is 'Where can I buy a spare battery for device X?' Yes, we're dealing, in many cases, with phones with replaceable batteries - an admirable attribute but only if you can buy the spares! With this in mind, I'm 'reviewing' a third party Lumia 950 battery here - and it's not terrible. Somewhat to my surprise!

Review: Cartograph Maps Pro UWP

icon

It's not often when I admit that a review of mine is horribly incomplete. However, in this case, the only way to really, truly review Cartograph Maps Pro UWP is to head out into the wilds and find some mountains, treks and trails, and I'm going to leave that to Gilbert, one of AAWP's guest reviewers(!) In the meantime, I can at least show you the basics of the application - it's a comprehensive mapping and tracking system for all Windows 10 form factors, with a steep but manageable learning curve.

Review: BlitzWolf PF-2 - ultimate in-pocket power?

icon

You may remember that I reviewed the nifty BlitzWolf PF-1 last year? Ultra-compact build, Type C-equipped, but with a foot planted firmly in the past with regards to fast charging standards. Jump forward to 2018 and AAWP (exclusively) has access to its successor, the more current (pun intended!) and more capable PF-2, which is shaping up to my ultimate pocket power bank. There's only one catch...
