Review: EasyAcc MegaCharge D20

icon

OK, I say this every time, but... we have a new winner. In the power bank stakes, at least. The combination of input and output flexibility, capacity, ruggedness, coupled with a camping-grade torch, all make the slightly cheesily named EasyAcc MegaCharge D20 the accessory to beat at the moment. Just a fabulous bit of kit.

Review: Vector Conversion Tool UWP

icon

Vector graphics is, it's fair to say, something that's a little specialist - you may well encounter examples in everyday life, in documents, even web pages, but you'll never be required to know what you're seeing. Vector images and formats are vital to how office infrastructure works though, and this is a handy UWP conversion utility that runs on any Windows 10 phone, hybrid or laptop.

Review: Blitzwolf BW-AS1

icon

Veering definitely towards form over value is the cosmetically stunning Blitzwolf BW-AS1 20W stereo Bluetooth speaker, styled in machined aluminium to fit right in with Apple Macbooks, Microsoft Surface Pros, and so on. At £60 or so, it's not cheap, but it's in for review, works well, and will appeal to many from a stylistic point of view, I suspect, price being no object...

Review: Flipboard PWA

icon

Yes, you read the title right, PWAs - Progressive Web Applications - are now a bona fide way of gaining new apps under Windows 10 Mobile. I have several examples, but I'll start with Flipboard. With the withdrawal of the old WP8.1 app last Autumn, the PWA provides an almost identical experience and will work on any device that runs a modern web browser (such as Edge).

Review: Sygic GPS Navigation UWP

icon

I know, I know, Sygic GPS Navigation is something I'd been meaning to review for years here on AAWP*, but it never quite worked right, despite multiple attempts. Yet the continued failure of Microsoft to offer real time traffic avoidance in Windows 10 Maps, added to the 'old' maps used (I'm still chasing that one down), led me to experimenting with Sygic all over again. And... it's a story of brickbats and bouquets. The latter because it's a first class navigation solution, the former because it's not 100% stable and because it too has old (2016) maps.

Review: Heart Box

icon

Who doesn't love a good physics-based arcade game? From Angry Birds right up to this, Heart Box, recently massively updated for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile (as well as other platforms) - it's unashamedly garish and brash, yet with new physics elements introduced steadily through the 160 levels - so you never get bored, only challenged.

Review: Vime - Ultimate Vimeo Client UWP

icon

When did applications start putting 'review-like' text in their title? Must be a new trend... In any case, 'Vime - 'Ultimate Vimeo Client' (I'm just going to call it 'Vime'!) is a cracking UWP application that delivers Vimeo into your Windows 10 Phone far more effectively - and beautifully - than just using the Edge browser.

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.
