is there more than 15/20 apps worth using?
Granted most of my 38 out-of-date apps I wouldn’t miss that much (mostly occasional games and stuff to keep the kids amused) but some I’d quite like to keep:
SynthCam – takes nice synthesised shallow focus and tilt-shift photos by combining multi angle shotsPosted 6 months ago
MAVideo – motion-activated video recorder. Useful sometimes.
OSMTrack – used to records GPS traces for OpenStreetMap
Pushpin – used to edit POI for OpenStreetMap
SnowForecast – ski reports
Civilisation Revolution – mobile version of Civ (good for long flights etc)
Gourmet Society – quick look up of restaurants where the card is valid
PlayTales – interactive stories for the kids
Humax Remote – for when I can’t find the real one
Met Office – for the weather obv
BLE Utility/nRF UART/nRF Utility – Bluetooth diagnostics stuff that I use for work to test Bluetooth, simulate BLE devices etc
Resistor – nice simple resistor decoder
Skyfire – my secondary browser of choice for gentleman’s pursuitsjambalayaSubscriber

re battery issues – as an example, the action centre toggle does NOT disable bluetooth if you find that re enabled upon updating as I did despite never using bluetooth products)- go into settings and you’ll find it still on. Its worth googling/ youtubing battery tips for ios11- I’ve always done that and there’s a bunch of things to turn off that you genuinely don’t need (looking at you ad tracking location etc) take a moment and look them up, you’ll be surprised what is running you don’t need. And no, it doesn’t cripple the phone. Never found anything unusable after turning the majority of location and background tasks off etc.
Battery calibration is NOT the solution, unless your phone is only 24 hours old. Proactively look up the tasks that use battery resources and turn them off.Posted 5 months ago
