Varidesk Pro Review

varidesk-slider-standing

Off the back of a number of recent reports about the health problems associated with sitting at all day there is increasing interest in other ways to work at a desk. Now standing desks and even treadmill desks are becoming – at least ever so slightly – more common sights.

But let’s face it, completely changing your desk for a standing one, let alone installing a treadmill, just isn’t practical for most of us, which is where the Varidesk comes in. Instead of a wholesale swap to an upright desk, it sits on a normal desk and offers the ability to switch between standing and sitting.

New Google Camera App Review

Google has just released a new Android Camera app that’s free to download from the Play Store for any phone running Android 4.4 KitKat or later. I’ve taken it for a spin to see how it performs compared to the previous standard Android camera app and several others that are available, including the standard Samsung Galaxy S4 camera app.

 

The first thing you notice with this new app is that Google has stuck largely with the clean design ethic of the previous Android camera app. After briefly appearing for a moment to hint at where they can be found, the main menu controls disappear off screen leaving just the shutter button (which will either be black if the camera aspect ratio is 4:3 or semi-transparent if 16:9) and the ‘…’ that signifies the settings menu.

 

Tapping the settings menu brings up options for turning on a guidance grid, toggling the flash and switching to the front camera. Just tap on the image to choose your focus point or let the autofocus do its thing.

 

Further options can be brought up by swiping in from the left edge. Here you can access the photo sphere mode, panorama and lens blur modes, as well as select the normal camera and video modes.
