Apps of the Week

The best apps we have installed and are excited about this week

The weekend is a leisurely time where we all pull out our phones or tablets and find a new app or two to keep us entertained or productive.

81
M8 SIM tray

Or how a $3 piece of plastic can ruin your $600 phone

The HTC One M8 is the third high-profile smartphone to use a nanoSIM. Unless you already use an iPhone 5 or later, or a Moto X, you probably don't have a nanoSIM. But this is the way forward, and eventually every phone will be using the new standard. In the meantime, if you find yourself switching phones around a lot, you may need to adapt — with an adapter — any time you need to go bigger.

We went over switching from a microSIM to a nanoSIM and the various ways to go about it, but we only briefly touched on the dangers of a crappy SIM adapter. Let's talk a little more about that, and why you really need to be careful.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 still has a menu button, it's just hidden

Samsung Galaxy S5

You just have to know where to look for it

With the Galaxy S5, Samsung has at long last done away with the capacitive menu key and replaced it with the fast app switcher. The stock Touchwiz apps in their new form all sport a proper, on screen menu button now, and all is right with the world. But, what about when you come across a really old, but still totally necessary app that still uses a legacy menu button? Well, Samsung took it away...but not completely.

Read on to see where you'll find it on the Galaxy S5.

8

One of the value added bonuses you're privileged to with the purchase of a new Samsung Galaxy S5 is 6-months free music courtesy of Deezer. Well, in countries Deezer is supported, in any case. But it's not immediately clear how you need to go about claiming this, especially since there's no pre-installed app or anything. So here's the run down.

John Legere has a Gold Galaxy S5, too

51

I love goooold. That's probabably what John Legere is thinking right now. Earlier today he went to Twitter to promote the Galaxy S5 that came to T-Mobile today. HTC wasn't too happy with all the attention that T-Mobile's CEO was giving the S5, so they supplied him with a shiny new HTC One M8 wrapped in a brilliant 24-carat gold finish. Did you really think Samsung would take that sitting down?
