Discount Spreadsheet

3 08 2018

You find lots of sophisticated and powerful apps in Apple’s App Store. Some of them are shining examples for simplicity and plain design and follow the KISS principle (Keep it simple, stupid).

One of them is

Discount Spreadsheet by Luminant Software, Inc.

It got an updated UI
and a long awaited new keyboard in July 2018.

The app is simple to use, restricted to the basic needs of a spreadsheet application and lets users focus on relevant tasks. No bells and whistles.

These kind of apps can be effectively used to teach and discuss simple things with young people. It’s a first step to improve knowledge and knowledge is the basis of creativity. Transferring knowledge and initiate further discrete thinking seems to be easier than ever because mobile devices initiated a shift in paradigm of teaching and learning. It’s because a touchscreen is much nearer to human activities than any other device or textbook could ever be. What we do is mostly what we do with our hands. It’s our first approach to new things.

Lots of developers implement more and more features into their apps but only apps like Discount Spreadsheet are perfect for explaining and learning the basics of creating spreadsheets.

Learning targets could be …

learn the common actions cut, copy, paste, undo and redo which are provided by all operating systems

build a sum with cells in a column or row

enter a simple expression where the arguments are cells

insert or delete rows/columns and see that a spreadsheet app automatically adjusts the cell coordinates in a formula to new appropriate rows/columns

create a graph

access the iOS app specific folder via a browser by using a http address

etc.

Try it out and you’ll think twice before you use the turbocharged apps Apple Numbers or Microsoft Excel.

Thanks for reading.





Microsoft Edge for iOS

9 02 2018

Another highlight from Redmond

Microsoft’s browser EDGE made for Windows 10 is now available for iOS. And it’s fast, easy to use, and gives a continuous browsing experience from your iPhone to your Windows 10 PC (which in my opinion is still better than a Mac).

“Your stuff syncs in the background, allowing you to browse across devices, without skipping a beat.”

After opening a website on my iPhone I can easily open Edge on my Surface and display the site. That works pretty smooth. Using Google+ is also much better than with Chrome. It’s way faster and lets you return exactly to the point where you left the post stream.

If you ask me personally I would say it‘s way better than Google Chrome for iOS.

Emojis, Animojis, Hamojis

28 01 2018

Did you know that 44 likes iPhones?

But there’s more. Since years the world was looking for these little cute images of the Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton.

“There is an app for that.”

Lewis Hamilton’s official Hamoji app gives you access to over 200+ new & exclusive emoji, stickers and expressions, all handpicked by Lewis Hamilton himself.

And yes stats tell us that Apple’s App Store offers a lot more than 2 million apps (2018). Sadly too many of them are as useless codings as Hamoji.

Btw, I can’t recommend this app.
I mean, you have to pay for this bullshit.
Better invest in a 44-Case to protect your iThing.

One last thing …

Developers, please make the world happy with Tanimojis animating Donald Trump when explaining alternate facts to the world.
