But on delving deeper into WhoSampled, it really does become an engrossing encyclopaedia of musical connections. Although you can easily enough rummage through artists and tracks the app deems &lsquo;hot&rsquo;, &lsquo;most influential&rsquo;, or &lsquo;most connected&rsquo;, you can also search to find your favourite tracks and artists, to discover how their music has been used (or the music they used).</p> <p>On pulling up a track, you&rsquo;ll see sample, cover and remix links in relevant directions. Tapping on an individual sample brings up a head-to-head comparison screen, which often enables you to flick between YouTube videos of the two tracks in question. Helpfully, there&rsquo;s also a prominent &lsquo;buy&rsquo; link, to grab songs readily available from online music emporiums.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/ipod-classic-obituary-thank-you-music/feature">iPod Classic obituary: thank you for the music</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="App of the Week: WhoSampled" alt="App of the Week: WhoSampled" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/whosampled-2.jpg?1413197283" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Cost-free on Android </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Originally released for iOS (where it was selected by Apple as an App Store best-of-year), WhoSampled does have a couple of changes for this Android remix.

That&rsquo;s because it&rsquo;s full of one-for-one deals at great restaurants all around Singapore, as well as hotels around the region. </p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/melvin-tang" title="View user profile.">Melvin Tang</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> MEAL FOR TWO, PRICED FOR ONE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr">What&rsquo;s better than a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant? Saving money while you&rsquo;re at it, and that&rsquo;s exactly what Entertainer does. Basically, every voucher in the book lets you get two of something for the price of one, though you can only use one voucher for every two people present. You&rsquo;ll also need to check with each vendor what&rsquo;s eligible for use with the voucher beforehand &ndash; usually you can&rsquo;t use it with anything with portions for more than one person &ndash; and public holidays and their eves are off-limits. </p> <p>When you can use the voucher however, it&rsquo;s great. For example, each full purchase of Entertainer Singapore gives you three one-for-one vouchers for main courses at the <a href="http://www.fat-cow.com.sg/">Fat Cow</a>. With mains setting you back between $58 and $288 each, that&rsquo;s theoretical savings of approximately $180 to $870. If you were planning to splash the cash by eating there already, it&rsquo;s phenomenal.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Uniquely Sing-app-orean: Entertainer review" alt="Uniquely Sing-app-orean: Entertainer review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/meal%20for%20two_0.jpg?1412822976" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Get Entertainer here </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr">Price: Free (you still have to purchase membership to unlock the vouchers)</p> <p dir="ltr"><a href="https://itunes.apple.com/sg/app/the-entertainer/id702813714?mt=8" target="_blank">Download Entertainer for iOS</a></p> <p dir="ltr"><a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.theentertainerme.entertainer" target="_blank">Download Entertainer for Google Play </a></p> <p><a href="http://www.windowsphone.com/en-sg/store/app/the-entertainer/3bf61016-a92d-4e7d-b78f-246363ea3271" target="_blank">Download Entertainer for Windows Phone</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> SPOILT FOR CHOICE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr">The Fat Cow is just one of 383 merchants where you can use Entertainer vouchers in Singapore.

There are a couple of spas, attractions, and activities in Singapore that you could use vouchers at too.</p> <p dir="ltr">Overseas however, is a different story &ndash; instead of meals, the app has offers for 126 hotels and spa treatments across Asia, including popular destinations like Bangkok and Bali. That means you could get two nights&#39; hotel stay for the price of one on your next holiday.

From the brief, it seems only more experienced Ingress players will be allowed to create missions though Niantic plans to eventually open up the missions to level five players and above.</p> <p>Why do the missions matter? They add a new purpose for players, especially those who are either new to it or starting to get bored. What happens is that a mission objective is created and thus you start a walking tour of sorts that has a beginning and end, with the reward being virtual medals.</p> <p>Each mission will have ratings and estimated completion times so you will know if it&#39;s worth your while. This could be a fun way for Ingress users frustrated at the slow levelling time it can take and how difficult it can be for solo players just starting out. Leveling is done by capturing portals or attacking enemy portals and at low levels, it&#39;s harder to collect points unless of course you&#39;re in an Ingress territory with plenty of people to help weaken portals for you.</p> <p>So if you spend a lot of time travelling and want to play a game that you can pick up from wherever you left off, then Ingress&#39; low-commitment (though highly battery-sapping) premise just might be for you!</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:</strong> <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/app-week">Why not check out our fun Apps of the Week?</a></p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2014/09/25/ingress-missions/" target="_blank">Engadget</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/NPIWrOvHogg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/ingress-gives-you-more-reason-play-new-user-generated-missions/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/ingress-gives-you-more-reason-play-new-user-generated-missions/news#comments Android apps Android games Apps and Games Fri, 26 Sep 2014 06:38:23 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1448622 at http://www.stuff.tv Bleep, Bittorrent's new private chat app is now downloadable http://www.stuff.tv/sg/bleep-bittorrents-new-private-chat-app-now-downloadable/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Currently in alpha version, the Bleep app is now open to the public after a private testing phase </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Bleep, Bittorrent&#039;s new private chat app is now downloadable" alt="Bleep, Bittorrent&#039;s new private chat app is now downloadable" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/bleep_01.jpg?1411016616" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Remember that time when we told you about <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/bittorrent-thinks-it-should-help-you-share-chats-now-new-app/news" target="_blank">Bleep, BitTorrent&#39;s take on a private, secure app</a>?

Starting with its new app, presumably.</p> <p>&quot;So this is a conversation about privacy. About the ability to freely have conversations. Privacy should not be up for debate. And privacy should not be hard to achieve.&quot;</p> <p>How does Bleep help with privacy? For one, it&#39;s a peer-to-peer app, there&#39;s no central server that can be used to store data and keep track of users. Bleep can&#39;t track who you are or who you&#39;re talking to, providing just its services to connect to another user while not being able to snoop on your communications.</p> <p>The signup process needs only an email or mobile number, with no information that can use to personally identify you being necessary. One caveat, though. You can only sent texts and call up contacts where they are online. To add contacts, there is currently an option to either invite friends or you can import your Google address book.</p> <p>There are some bugs that still need working out. For instance, you can move an existing account from the desktop to Android but not vice-versa. Not to mention the being unable to send messages or attachments to offline contacts.</p> <p>If you&#39;d like to err on the side of privacy, you can now <a href="http://labs.bittorrent.com/bleep" target="_blank">download the app</a> for free on PC, Mac and Android.</p> <p>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/there-are-lessons-be-learned-celeb-iphone-pic-thefts-they-re-not-what-you-might-have-heard/fea">Lessons to be learned from the iCloud hack</a></p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://blog.bittorrent.com/2014/09/17/bittorrent-bleep-alpha-goes-public-introduces-mac-and-android-apps/" target="_blank">BitTorrent </a>via <a href="http://www.theverge.com/2014/9/17/6338417/bittorrent-bleep-secure-chat-app-public-alpha-released" target="_blank">The Verge</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Bleep, Bittorrent&#039;s new private chat app is now downloadable" alt="Bleep, Bittorrent&#039;s new private chat app is now downloadable" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/bleep_02.jpg?1411016616" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/bleep-bittorrents-new-private-chat-app-now-downloadable/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/bleep-bittorrents-new-private-chat-app-now-downloadable/news#comments Android apps Apps and Games Thu, 18 Sep 2014 05:03:36 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1447963 at http://www.stuff.tv Adidas adds diet tracking to miCoach by hooking it up to MyFitnessPal http://www.stuff.tv/sg/adidas-adds-diet-tracking-micoach-hooking-it-myfitnesspal/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not satisfied with logging your miles, Adidas decides to track what you eat too </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Adidas adds diet tracking to miCoach by hooking it up to MyFitnessPal" alt="Adidas adds diet tracking to miCoach by hooking it up to MyFitnessPal" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/micoach.jpg?1411008552" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Fitness tracking isn&#39;t exactly new by now but with the the space getting rather crowded, it&#39;s no wonder Adidas is trying to up its game.</p> <p>Adidas&#39; miCoach platform is somewhat similar to Nike&#39;s though it doesn&#39;t embed its tracking into its shoes the way the latter does.
