Netflix VPN PayPal Payments

Netflix gets unexpected help in quest to cut your VPN access

Netflix gets unexpected help in quest to cut your VPN access

Just when we thought that Netflix is about to lose the first fight against VPN service providers that help international users access any Netflix movie catalog (especially the U.S. one), we learn that the popular streaming service is getting some unexpected help from another popular online service: PayPal.

The payments company announced that it’s cutting off payments support for VPN sites on copyright infringement concerns. That means you can’t pay with your PayPal account for the VPN service you need to unblock Netflix USA content.

It also means you can’t pay with PayPal for VPN services regardless of what the purpose of VPN use is. More →

The simplest way to improve your iPhone’s battery performance by 15%

It can’t be said enough: Uninstalling the Facebook app does some wonderful things for your phone. Last week we pointed to some tests that showed uninstalling Facebook from your Android phone could improve its battery life by as much as 20% and now there are new tests that show you can get a similar battery boost by uninstalling the app from your iPhone. Specifically, The Guardian’s Samuel Gibbs has found that “uninstalling Facebook’s iOS app and switching to Safari can save up to 15% of iPhone battery life.” More →

While some users may have intimate knowledge of the way WhatsApp works, others might be new to the chat app. If you’re one of them, the following 15 tips and tricks should come in handy.

Another crucial reason why app developers prefer iOS to Android

While the fight between iPhone and Android persists, the fact is that no matter what platform you choose, you’ll get a great experience. There’s great hardware on either side and amazing apps to complement them. Sure, iPhone has definitive advantages over Android, but, in turn, Android outshines iPhone in some ways.

However, there’s still one key area where iPhone always wins that Google has not managed to address. More →

Most Popular Smartphone Apps

List of most popular iOS and Android apps is dominated by Facebook and Google

Whether you’re an iPhone user or partial to Android, one thing smartphone users across the board can enjoy equally is an absolutely endless selection of apps. Today, both the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store each house more than 1.5 million applications. Even better, the days of top applications being exclusive to one platform or the other appear to be winding down.

That said, if we look at a list of the most popular apps, it quickly becomes apparent that the mobile app experience is still dominated by big time players.

Best Email Apps For iPhone

The only 5 email apps iPhone users should consider using

The only 5 email apps iPhone users should consider using

There are a few cases where a pre-installed iPhone app made by Apple is the best tool for a particular job, but the Mail app certainly isn’t one of them. For light email users, it’s a nice clean option that offers a fairly basic set of features and a nice user interface. For the rest of us, we need a solution that offers a broader feature set than Apple’s Mail app will likely ever offer.

I’ve personally been back on the hunt for a new email app ever since my email solution of choice was shut down by Dropbox. And no, I still haven’t forgiven the company. I’ve gone through more than a dozen apps in my search for a Mailbox replacement though, and in this post I’ll save you the pain and suffering that I’ve had to endure. More →
