You can even use someone else’s clips, or let others use yours, to make their own mini movie. This app is available for free.

Bitwarden Password Manager


Recently, I started using password manager applications since I wanted to keep my credentials a bit more secure and not easily guessable. I have nearly tried all the popular password manager solutions out there but decided to settle down with Bitwarden. What’s special here is the fact that it is completely free and has no restrictions whatsoever.

Bitwarden is an open-source password manager meaning the build code is public and anyone can contribute to making the experience better. Since the app is open source, you don’t need to worry about the security and privacy of your data. Of course, there are few downsides here as well such as lack of folders in folders and autofill feature.

Considering the service is completely free, these two should hardly be a deal-breaker. If it is, then you can always switch to some other options out there.

An open-source password manager that is completely free

No restrictions whatsoever

cross-platform support

AES-256 bit encryption, salted hashing, and PBKDF2 SHA-256

Mini-ism for KWGT

If you’re new to the world of Android customization, then you might have no idea about KWGT. Well, it is a ‘kustom’ widget maker that allows you to add some custom widgets to your homescreen or launcher. You can either create your own or use the ones created by the community. We’re going to talk about a widget pack for KWGT that goes by the name mini-ism.

As the name suggests, the app offers minimal widgets for your Android smartphone. The app offers a plethora of widgets to choose from and all of that for free. There is no hidden charges or in-app purchases – it’s completely free. Persoanlly, I love the calender widgets that this app offers. Again to use this, you’ll need to have a Pro version of KWGT widget maker app.

While you might have to tweat the widgets a bit to make it suitable as per your setup, but hey! it’s free so no complaints. It is worth noting that this app is currently at version 6.8 which is the final version meaning no new widgets in future. The app has 200 widgets that you can choose from which is a lot. Overall, a must checkout for those who’re looking to spice their homescreen up.

Price: Free

App page: Download Mini-ism for KWGT from Google Play Store

Kitty Letter


No! It’s not Kitty Litter – it’s Kitty Letter. As you might have already guessed, it’s a word game in which you use your power of vocabulary to beat the opponent. From the gameplay experience to visuals, the developers have managed to excel at everything. You can play the game with stranders or friends online. If that’s not your jam, then there’s a single player campaign as well.

There’s no concept of coins or leveling up in the game so it would be like simply playing and destroying the opponent. One thing to note here is the lack of individual level as it makes harder to find a good opponent since you can be matched with a newbie. This would not only ruin the experience for the newcomer but also for the experienced player as well.

Price: Free (with some in-app purchases)

App page: Download Kitty Letter from Google Play Store 

And, with that, we’re now done with yet another edition of our weekly best free Android apps and games. If you haven’t checked out the previous edition, then you can find some useful apps and games there as well. Well, we’ll be back with some more free android apps and games next week so make sure to stay tuned.

We like the Trips section, which lets you track all of the flights for a trip on one screen. Rather than scrambling to learn how much time you have between flights, you can find out with just a tap. We also appreciate the option to search an airport’s flights for a given time period, to see if flights are leaving on time or if there are massive delays.

Jailbreak Tweaks Of The Week: Diamond, Sphere, Volumemixer, And More…

As the final day of the weekend rears its ugly head, the good news is that we’re back with another jailbreak tweak roundup showcasing all the latest releases from this past work week.

This roundup will encompass releases from Monday, November 2nd to Sunday, November 8th. As usual, we’ll start things off by talking about our favorite releases first and then wrap things up with an outline of everything else afterward.

Our favorite releases this week Diamond – $2.30

There’s no disputing the fact that the iPhone’s Dock and Status Bar interfaces have changed very little over the years. Fortunately for those looking for something new and refreshing, a jailbreak tweak called Diamond brings a lot to the table.

Diamond conjoined the two interfaces into one, and it can be accessed by tapping on the SpringBoard icon or with the Reachability gesture. What appears in the Diamond interface is fully configurable, as are its aesthetics and behavior, among other things.

You can learn more about Diamond and what it can do for you in our full review.

Sphere – $2.99

Multitasking is a component of iOS that we don’t yet think has reached maturity. While it’s fairly decent on the iPad these days, iPhone users still need to jump from one application to another on a stock device. That’s why we like a new jailbreak tweak called Sphere.

You can learn more about Sphere and how it works in our full review.

VolumeMixer – FREE

One of the fundamental problems that we think iOS still has with regard to volume controls is that users can’t yet configure their volume level on a per-app basis.

VolumeMixer is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak that resolves this issue by letting users configure volume levels for their applications independently of one another.

You can learn more about VolumeMixer and how it works in our full review.

Jailbreak Tweaks Of The Week: Dndallow, Instalauncher, Reachit, Videoswipes, And More

If you have a jailbroken iOS 11 or iOS 12 device in your possession and you’re wondering what you should install on it to make it better, then you’ve come to the right place.

In this roundup, we’ll summarize each of this week’s new jailbreak tweak releases from Monday, April 22nd to Sunday, April 28th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorites and then outline the rest afterward.

Our favorite releases this week DNDAllow – FREE

DNDAllow is an ingenious jailbreak tweak that lets Do Not Disturb users permit specific apps through iOS’ Do Not Disturb filter, effectively letting you toggle the feature on a per-app basis.

With it, you can silence notifications from your most annoying apps and work-related apps when you’re relaxing, but still receive notifications of interest, such as text messages from your significant other.

You can learn more about DNDAllow in our full review.

InstaLauncher – $3.00

InstaLauncher is a quick app launcher that can help you access your favorite apps in a jiff. The tweak lets you search installed apps in alphabetical order with a letter scroller and access your more recently-used apps more quickly than you could in the App Switcher.

InstaLauncher is a particularly old tweak, but it has been refreshed for iOS 11 and 12. It looks and works just a good today as it did so many years ago, and we think it’s still relevant if you want a faster and easier way to launch apps on a cluttered Home screen.

You can learn more about InstaLauncher in our full review.

ReachIt – FREE

ReachIt makes the top end of the Reachability interface useful by filling the void with a Now Playing music interface so that you can see more about what’s currently playing and interact with playback controls.

There’s not much to say here besides ‘why didn’t Apple think of that,’ but if you’re interested in learning more about the tweak and where to get it, then we recommend checking out our full review.

VideoSwipes – FREE

VideoSwipes is a simple jailbreak tweak that, again, Apple should have implemented into iOS right out of the box and didn’t.

As the name implies, this tweak brings swipe gestures to iOS’ native video player interface. You can now swipe left or right on the video interface to either rewind or fast-forward by 15 seconds, much like you can in YouTube.

You can learn more about VideoSwipes and where to get it in our full review.
