2 cool free apps

Post by drcoolmor » December 22nd 2016 - 9:41 pm

reading Computeractive UK 21 December 2016, these 2 cool apps caught my eye.


Kodi® (formerly known as XBMC™) is an award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media center for playing videos, music, pictures, games, and more. Kodi runs on Linux, OS X, Windows, iOS, and Android, featuring a 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote controls. It allows users to play and view most videos, music, podcasts, and other digital media files from local and network storage media and the internet. Our forums and Wiki are bursting with knowledge and help for the new user right up to the application developer. We also have helpful Facebook, Google+, Twitter and Youtube pages.

Disappearing messages for Signal

The latest Signal release for iPhone, Android, and Desktop now includes support for disappearing messages.
The timer has come

With this update, any conversation can be configured to delete sent and received messages after a specified interval. The configuration applies to all parties of a conversation, and the clock starts ticking for each recipient once they've read their copy of the message.

Disappearing messages are a way for you and your friends to keep your message history tidy. They are a collaborative feature for conversations where all participants want to automate minimalist data hygiene, not for situations where your contact is your adversary — after all, if someone who receives a disappearing message really wants a record of it, they can always use another camera to take a photo of the screen before the message disappears.

The disappearing timer values range from five seconds to one week, giving you a range of options for ephemeral message history.

Kodi is definitely a nice Media Center. If you're one of those people who have your machine connected to your TV. Get Kodi! Remote control with your phone and a gazillion of addons for all kinds of streaming media content also some "piracy" addons. I am not sure though if it is particularly good for your own collection.
