access with one hand.
You choose your favorite pin apps on the home screen, and the rest are within easy reach of your thumb under an
alphabetized list on the right side of the screen. It’s quick and very responsive; you can either tap or swipe up
and down to scroll your app list on the portion of the alphabet you’re looking for.
By swiping across any app to pull up a list of choices, such as setting a new timer in the clock app or starting a
session with Strava, Niagara also enables you to take quick action from the home screen. A summary of
notification material on the home screen will also be displayed by favorite users, and a tap will extend this to
display the full text without opening the app.
With the free edition, these basic features are available, but to further customize your home screen with additional widgets and display your percentage of battery life requires an upgrade to the paid pro version, which costs
$6 per year.
Niagara features a clever interface, and on a large phone it will really come in handy. I would also have liked it on
my Before Time standing-room-only bus commutes, when for dear life I always clung to a rail with one hand while
checking my email with the other. On a smaller phone, too, it is pretty convenient for a more detailed look at your
updates without needing you to open an app.
No ads are included in the free version, which is another bonus. But while the launcher provides the basics,
without paying for the update, it’s a bit of a letdown that it doesn’t let you add anything as simple as a
weather widget. Overall, though, for those of us with one-handed woes,
Niagara provides a clean look and a unique solution.
The newest wireless earbuds from Samsung are the Galaxy Buds Pro. They come in Phantom Silver, Phantom
Violet, and Phantom Black, and for $200 today, they are affordable. These earbuds have preserved all the good
components or the Galaxy Buds that have come before them with sturdy microphones, a sleek design, and
reasonable battery life. But all their additional features are what won them their Pro title.
