[Opinion] Whatsapp and Telegram - They Co-exist!

Image
When Telegram first launched in 2013, it was really obvious for me to conclude that it was coming for Whatsapp. The developers being very active, kept on constantly adding new and useful features to their app. In fact, recently they just released a new video showing-off their 7-year journey of evolution! In 7 years, Telegram has grown to 400 million users and about as many features. Here’s a look back at some of the best updates (and memes) since 2013.https://t.co/OOnVmWPXlupic.twitter.com/i72Eruhapf — Telegram Messenger (@telegram) August 17, 2020 Whatsapp launched in 2009 as a paid service (Yes!!!) - $1 / ₹50 per year (back then), then eventually in 2016, they made it completely free for everyone due to the growing number of users and users = data = totally worth it ! February 2014 was when Facebook acquired Whatsapp (and even also the data inside!) for $19b. Reiterating: users = data totally worth it ! With some history being presented let…

Taskito - A refreshing take on ToDo, Planning and Journalling

Another week...another app...
I am sure (pretty sure) that many people need and in fact be using ToDo lists no matter in what manner...PC, mobile apps, notepad, emails, etc. I don't say any method is wrong or should not be preferred (everyone has their comfort zone!). Speaking of the apps, (you very well knew this was coming, Hehe!) there are tons and tons of apps available to use, and we have a recent addition over here - Taskito (seems like a magic spell right?). Launched just a year back, let's dive-in for what this has on offer! The Premise Open the app and you will be greeted with the dashboard in the form of a timeline and a calendar sheet which is expandable from the bottom...that's it, the app completely wants the tasks to be shown in the form a timeline...all of your past, present, and future tasks just some scrolls away!

So...it's been more than a month! my exams are over and I am finally back to reviews!
This is one of the things that I like about android - the functionality to explore stored files like a directory...just like the Windows File Explorer! Android's default file explorer ('Files') has really evolved since its inception and is now better than ever in Android 10, but it has been only recently that it has reached to a level that I would call as 'usable'
In 2016, Neatbytes (dev) had deployed a huge overhaul to Solid Explorer which really caught my attention (UI things, you know!), coincidentally a few days after that, it was up for grabs ₹15 (roughly 2 cents) and it was a no-brainer for me and I grabbed it! It is 2020 now and I am still stuck with it for all the good reasons...read on! Design, micro-interactions, etc. I can't start this review without the thing that is prima facie visible - the design. Honestly, the app is so …
