How to Download The Latest ShowBox Version

If you’re one of the people who love watching movies as often as possible, then probably you’re familiar with the ShowBox APK. It’s one of the most recent entertainment apps that has been quite the hype among the movie lovers. With it, you can make sure that you have access to the most recent movies and TV shows, whether you prefer the old or new ones. It is a huge database of TV shows and films that you can simply access with your device.

What’s more, you can stream any video directly on the device. If you want to watch them later, then you have the option of downloading them. Even so, you won’t find the app on the official app stores, such iOS Store or Google Play Store. This doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy it though! Read on to find out how to download the app.

Downloading the App

Needless to say, the latest version is better than the previous one. All the issues have been taken care of by the developers and now you won’t see the app freezing or crashing even if the server is overloaded. It is ideal to download the app from official sources, so you can use this link: http://showboxappdownloads.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/Showbox%204.92.apk in order to get it. It is important to download the latest version, since it has some impressive features.

The developers made some improvements to the interface, which looks lighter now. It is more responsive than before and all in all, the app is more stable. You can now filter out the movies, as well as the TV series based on the rating they have on IMBD, the genre or the release date. Moreover, the size of the updated version is smaller than the previous ones, so you shouldn’t worry about that.

The mystery of Solitaire – What makes this basic game so popular?

It’s pretty nuts when you think about how popular this game is despite all the obviously more advanced games and applications that have come out in the past decade. Or at least they seem that way, but given the fact that Solitaire always manages to slip in the top computer games of all time lists, it’s not so certain.

The fairest way to put it is that there is a time for everything, so while triple A games and pastime applications have their own place, there are also moments when you need nothing more than Solitaire. If you’re among the people confused by the success of Solitaire you’ve come to the right place because we are looking to what makes this old, simple and beloved game remain so popular.

It’s easy to get in to

When you look at other games, they just might not be for everyone. Even if they’re not particularly complicated, people that don’t play that many games in general might find it hard or unsatisfactory to invest time in them. That’s never the case with Solitaire as everyone has seen a deck of cards before. Solitaire is a card game that you play on your computer or your phone, and anyone of any age or interest can find it entertaining. It’s easy to get, too. Companies like MobilityWare have seen to it that people can easily play it on their phone as well, which is pretty neat especially since it’s available for both Android Solitaire and iOS Solitaire.

It’s challenging and addictive

The thing about Solitaire that takes people by surprise is how hard it can actually be. The game sure looks simple when you watch someone else play it, and the goal of the game isn’t that complicated to follow. Simply rearrange the cards that you’re given so that you complete four rows of cards each pertaining to a different suite.

Getting there however is harder than you might think and for that reason many people pour hours upon hours in attempting to beat the game and beat their own records. It can get really challenging from that perspective and people are addicted to games that make them sweat. In a sense, you could say that Solitaire is the grandfather of Flappy Bird.

It’s relaxing

Despite what we’ve just said, Solitaire is not an intense game. It is quite the opposite if you don’t aim to beat the game as fast as possible. If you’re just after the base experience of getting the job done, you will find that Solitaire hits the spot in terms of relaxation.  Most games today have you running around looking for stuff or trying to beat the clock. It’s nice to be able to just sit back and take your time for a change of pace.

Image to Word: best Android OCR converter

image-to-word-best-android-ocr-converter

As we have already previously mentioned Cometdocs and PDF to Word mobile app converter in one of our earlier articles, it’s only fair that we update you on the progress they have made since then. Since the moment we published that article, they have worked long hours, day after day to bring us new and better tech gems. Today, we will be talking about the localization of several Cometdocs mobile apps, the potential behind OCR conversion apps and what is the future of mobile app data management.

What is app localization and why do it?

App localization is a very important thing to have in mind when trying to expand your reach and fan base. Having an app in English is great, because it’s one of the most common languages, and most used in the world of tech. However, having an app that can work in different languages is as important as having it in English. As the trend of owning mobile phones and tablets spreads to Asia with immense speed, so does the demand for apps localized to the Asian market grow as well. It is of the utmost importance to have your app translated into at least some of the more popular languages such as Chinese (Mandarin), Hindi, Indonesian, etc.

Another reason why localizing Android apps is a great idea is the fact that most Android users aren’t from the US. Only a small portion of Android users are from the US. Other bigger segments belong to China, Australia, and several other major countries (with the exception of Japan which favors iOS), meaning that the potential to spread to these countries is huge.

Cometdocs has localized 7 of their apps in the last couple updates, making it so that their best converters are now available in Spanish, Portuguese, German, French, Italian, Indonesian, and Japanese as well. This opens up several big markets, mainly central and south America, and most of Europe.

OCR apps and what’s next?

OCR or Optical Character Recognition is a type of technology that has been developed over the last 10 years or so with moderate success here and there. Google defines it as “the recognition of printed or written text characters by a computer.” but it comes down to this – OCR is a tool for converting printed or image-based files into digitally recognizable files that you can edit.

Two of their more notable OCR apps are Image to Word and Image to Excel — a prime example of what OCR apps do and the way they work. These apps are perfect for converting text-rich and sheet-based images, respectively. Combining the power of the industry leading OCR engine, with the impressive speed at which conversion is done, Cometdocs has once again outdone themselves.

Image to Word is available on iOS as well

Future of data management?

It is becoming more and more obvious that the future of data management is not at risk. It is also safe to say that data management has found its place in the world of mobile apps with cloud services becoming more and more integrated into them.

Cometdocs seemingly does not lack the audacity to make the next step, as there have been rumors of some kind of a universal mobile app converter undergoing development. However, at this point those are just rumors as we don’t have the sufficient information directly from the source. We can only hope to find out more in the upcoming months so make sure you are following the Cometdocs blog and social media. As of now, all we know is that they have shown to be persistent and successful, so give them a couple of months and in the meantime make sure you try out their new line of OCR apps and let us know what you think!

Bouncy Kingdom for iOS

You know about bounce castles in the real world and have likely enjoyed one at some point in your life (hopefully!). Well, Bouncy Kingdom by Kongregate brings them to another level in the app store, and it may just be the most fun-loving, casually enjoyable mobile game to come out in months. In a time when app developers seem intent mostly on creating the most realistic or innovative experiences possible—mimicking console quality to the best of their abilities and trying to build deeply immersive games—Bouncy Kingdom plays like a cartoon that’s having a little too much fun existing.

So, what is it exactly? Picture a hollowed out castle with bouncy interior walls, where hula hoops appear spontaneously in mid-air. You control a tiny cartoon character (The King) bouncing around delightedly in this environment, trying to fly through all the hoops before they disappear, and avoiding obstacles (such as ghosts) as you go. If you fail to get through a hoop before it disappears (each one only stays visible for a short time), or you collide with a dangerous obstacle, your round is over. Then, you’ll need to start all over or watch an advertisement video for a chance to revive without losing your streak of hoops.

That’s pretty much the whole story as far as gameplay goes, but oddly enough it’s the atmosphere in this simple experience that makes it a real winner. Well, that and the fact that you’ll be hooked after a single round and might not stop trying to beat your top score for hours.

Bouncy Kingdom for iOSAs basic as it is, I find the castle background to be unexpectedly pleasant. Medieval settings are rarer than it seems they ought to be in gaming, and when they do pop up they tend to be dark and harsh, steeped in dark fantasy or gothic atmosphere. This is a win for the cheesy castles of Disney and children’s storybooks, like little else in gaming aside from Gala Bingo’s castle-themed bingo room. That game presents an idyllic (though cartoonish) castle on a hill and invites bingo players to become “king or queen of the castle” by way of winning games. Bouncy Kingdom essentially asks you to do the same thing in a different way (bouncing, not bingo), but the castles are oddly similar; it almost looks like Bouncy Kingdom is what takes place inside the bingo castle’s walls! It’s fitting enough, because again, this is a rare shout-out to cheesy castle graphics (which I mean in a good way).

Then of course there are the characters to consider. You start as The King (odd, I thought, that you aren’t some sort of peasant at the beginning), and he’s animated by, as a review at Inside Games Latam put it, “next-gen ragdoll physics!” That means The King is essentially flopping around as carefree as can be while you bounce him off the walls, floors and ceiling, and it’s almost hard not to chuckle while you do it. But The King isn’t the only person you can control. Through a combination of game rewards and in-app purchasing, you can gain access to a whole cast of amusing characters: The Queen, The Knight, The Wizard, The Peasant (I knew there’d be a peasant!), and even some strange ones like The Astronaut and The Yeti. Different characters even have different abilities within the bouncy castle.

That pretty much says it all. A lighthearted, fun soundtrack adds a lot as well, as does the fact that the controls are as simple as tapping the screen to boost your bouncing character. But it’s really the castle atmosphere, the characters, and the gameplay itself that combine to make Bouncy Kingdom a surprise hit.

Windows Media Player Free Alternatives for Windows

Windows Media Player Free Alternatives for Windows

Most people would prefer not to use Windows Media Player but instead, use some other third-party software to watch their videos or listen to their music. If you have been looking for one, look no further as we have some of the best alternatives for you.

VideoLAN Codec (VLC)

Considered to be one of the best alternatives there is, VLC allows you to get input from your DVD drive, Audio CD and many other formats that you can possibly think of. Besides that, it also support many subtitle formats as well which is something that Media Player lacks. VLC is available not only for Windows but just about any other platforms you can think of.

Media Player Classic

If you have used the old version of Windows, you would have noticed a vanilla version of Windows Media Player called Media Player Classic. It has since been put as an open-source application and as such, it supports just about any common video and audio files that you can think of. Like VLC, it is also free and there are no advertisements or toolbars bundled with the application.

KMPlayer

If you want something that looks a bit more sophisticated, KMPlayer will be the alternative application to go with. It has a lot of features and can read most of the audio and video formats that you throw to it. Besides that, you can also apply adjustments such as noise reduction, image stretch and many others. KMPlayer is also available for free to whoever that wishes to use it.

XBMC

XBMC is most probably the one that stands out the most out of the ones that we have mentioned. This is because it is more like a media center as compared with a video player. It sorts your videos into films and TV shows. Besides that, it will also download the synopsis of the video as well.
