  • Hypernotes iPhone app review‬: Create connected notes!
  • Note-taking used to be pretty straightforward. Take a parchment, ink, and scribble away your thoughts. However, it becomes difficult to juggle the fast-paced life, track random ideas on the go using the conventional methods, and collaborate with colleagues or people. That’s where Hypernotes – a new app by Zenkit, comes in!

    A digital notebook that is easy to use, super organized, quick to create ideas, collaborate, and accessible offline on mobile devices.

    But is it the perfect iPhone note-taking app to suit the comprehensive needs? Moreover, can its collaboration feature make it ideal for professional use as well?

    Let us dig in and find out.

    Hypernotes: A convenient digital notebook

    Hypernotes is an intuitive app aiming to marry the idea of note-taking and outlining with the linking of ideas (here, pages) through hashtags. The neat user interface had me hooked in the first look!

    Moreover, when I tried the app, it gave me the feel of conventional notebooks. The basic idea is to create a notebook for separate topics and document your thoughts by creating pages within each.

    It may sound a bit complicated on paper, but it’s super easy to follow. Besides, there’s a guide (notebook) within the app that gets you onboard smoothly.

    Let’s take a closer look at its offerings.

    A peek into Hypernotes’ features

    Notebooks

    Once you download and sign up, the app creates your first notebook. This is where all the magic happens. The next step is to add a new page. A Hypernote notebook (like a physical notebook) can have many pages. And on these pages, you can add your ideas, projects, notes, and anything you desire.

    You can rename your notebook, add a cover image, description, etc. For this, open the notebook and click its name at the top. Finally, select Settings.

    One cool tip: From the first app screen, you can open the notebook like an actual book by swiping right to left on the cover. You will see the index page!

    Cool Tip for Notebooks in Hypernotes

    Writing inside Hypernotes

    The idea behind this app is to make sure you read or write more in a short span. Thus, the app lets you insert references, drawings, links, images, pages, tasks, and more effortlessly.

    For this, tap / (forward slash) from the top of the keyboard and choose an option. It is effortless!

    Writing inside Hypernotes

    Everything next to a bullet point, like a line of text you write, or an image you insert, etc., is a block. Double-tap the bullet point dot or tap the outwards arrow icon to open the block in full screen.

    Referencing

    When you visit a website like ours or Wikipedia, you might have seen that a post has several interlinks related to the text. When you click one, you can go straight to learn more about that word or phrase.

    Hypernotes lets you do the same. You can reference another page or block.

    The easiest way to do this is by prefixing # before a word. Other ways include using the square, circular, single bracket.

    Anytime you wish to see which page(s) reference to the current one, just tap References from the bottom row. The Referencing tutorial page within the app will help you learn more.

    Referencing inside Hypernotes with Hashtag

    Knowledge graphs

    When you are inside a notebook, page, or block, you will see an option called Graph (or Focus). Tapping it opens a mind map graph that shows the interlink/relation among the mentioned elements (pages and notes).

    The more things you add, the larger it grows. Once you are on the knowledge graph page, you can zoom in and out, drag it around, add new notes to an existing one, and double-tap to go to that page.

    I find it super addictive even. However, with the growing number of pages, this map gets more confusing. I wish there was another way to sort it out better!

    Graph or Focus mode in Hypernotes

    Collaborative space

    Much like Google Docs, Hypernotes allows you to see all the activities, changelog and comments sent & received. The comments tab is feature-packed like a chat application.

    You can insert photos, videos, drawings, files, voice messages, etc. The set of tools feel rich and helpful for collaborative work with multiple team members.

    Comments in Hypernotes

    You can add members by opening a notebook and tapping its name from the top. Next, tap AccessAdd Member.

    Additional highlights of Hypernotes

    Hypernotes has added tricks that make it a loaded, potent note-taking as well as professional app.

    • You can also make a notebook public and then copy its link and share that with someone. This permits them to click the link and view the contents. No need for the other person to be a user of this service! Pretty neat.

      Make a Notebook Public in Hypernotes
    • You can connect Hypernotes with other apps offered by Zenkit to have a seamless experience. This includes Base, To Do, and Zenchat.
    • Hypernotes makes it convenient to add tasks, add to favorites, and use arrows (on the screen’s top right to navigate).
    • Daily diary is another neat option that encourages you to write every day.

      Hypernotes Daily Diary
    • Hypernotes has a helpful notifications icon, a powerful search button, ability to duplicate, schedule, or archive a page – all welcome additions.

    Things Hypernotes missed out on

    There are two things that I miss in the current version:

    • You cannot go back by swiping left to right on the edge of the iPhone screen. This is something that I would want in its next update.
    • You cannot add # (to make a reference) if the phrase has a number. For example, I tried to add # to the word M1 (Apple’s latest in-house processor for Mac). I wanted it to be #M1. However, it only added the reference to the alphabet M and not the whole ‘M1.’

    Additionally, I came across the ‘An error occurred. Retry‘ popup on a few random occasions. After refreshing, the error vanished, but it hindered my experience.

    Hypernotes: Our verdict

    Overall, the app is thoughtfully built. Its developers strive to give you almost everything you might need to have an enjoyable note-taking and outlining experience.

    The color scheme is pleasant as it is not flashy or crowded. Everything is well spaced and appears light on the eyes. The dark mode is another addition if you dig that.

    Apart from the few things that I missed in the app, Hypernotes feels exceptionally well built. Right from the signup process to creating your first note, things are super easy and interactive. The tutorial notebook is pretty helpful.

    Once you create a few pages (notes), you will understand the app’s full potential. Things will just keep unfolding and becoming organized, enjoyable, and productive.

    The best part?

    The app is free for personal use. Additionally, it is available not only for iPhone but also for iPad, Mac, Windows PC, Android, and even the web!

    Price: Free

    • Plus: $8 (per month per user)
    • Business: $19 (per month per user)

    Get to know HiTune T2 better: Features

    With HiTune T2, UGREEN combines the latest acoustics innovation and enhanced audio-to-video synchronization. Let’s dig deeper into the earbuds to understand how good or bad they are.

    Crisp, punchy sound 

    Thanks to the high-performance acoustic architecture and the 14.2mm dynamic driver, HiTune T2 offer peep, punchy bass. Further, the ultra-lightweight PU and titanium coated composite diaphragm ensure detailed and accurate midrange and treble.

    I won’t call them the best for sound output, but they are certainly way above other competitors in this price range. Plus, they also boast a pretty decent on-call experience with zero wind noise.

    Each earbud boasts two advanced microphones, one to reduce ambient noise and the other one to enhance the voice. Add in HiTune’s signature DSP algorithm, and you get crystal clear phone calls, even in a noisy background.

    Low latency, why does it matter? 

    Most budgeted earbuds come plagued with a common problem, lag between picture and audio, especially during CPU-/GPU-intensive apps and games.

    UGREEN HiTune T2 employs a 60ms ultra-low latency to keep this issue at bay. A quadruple-tap on the earbuds takes you into the Gaming Mode, wherein you get expertly tuned bass, vocal, and treble performance.

    Moreover, the mode enables 3D soundscape, lag-free gaming, and live streams.

    And whether you like PUBG, Fortnite, or any other shooting games, these earbuds could lend you an upper hand as they can catch and relay ambient sounds like footsteps and gunshots in real-time.

    Lightweight and comfortable to wear

    HiTune T2 earbuds are designed keeping general ergonomics in mind, thanks to which they lend a snug and secure fit. Additionally, they smarty disperse pressure to ensure all-day comfortable wear.

    And since they are sweatproof and weigh just .19oz, you can use them anytime, anywhere, whether gymming, jogging, zoom meetings, etc.

    Galore of touch control 

    Probably my most favorite feature is that you can control your music and modes with a few taps. And I love, love that you can control the volume as well. The feature isn’t available in some of the high-end earbuds.

  • How to use Taptic Time on Apple Watch: A detailed guide
  • With the watchOS 6 update, Taptic Time on Apple Watch became a part of the Sounds & Haptics section and made it possible to know the time without looking at the watch.

    Once you activate it, a variant length of haptic taps will notify you about the current time. Moreover, you can select the patterns of the distinct haptic feedback you will receive, from hourly long taps to Morse code taps.

    It is helpful not only for visually challenged but also for power users who are always busy or on the move.

    Let me tell you what is Taptic Time on Apple Watch and how to use it.

    What is Taptic Time on Apple Watch?

    Apple’s Taptic Engine featuring vibratory motor offers innovative ways of marking time with vibrations (or taps) with watchOS 6, called Taptic Time. This enables you to feel time in silent mode through haptic feedback. Fascinating, isn’t it?

    After enabling it, you have three options – Digits, Terse, Morse Code. Let me tell you more about each before advancing to enabling it and understanding Taptic Chimes.

    Digits

    If you select this, the Apple Watch will feature:

    • a long tap for every 10 hours
    • short quick taps for every subsequent hour
    • long taps for every 10 minutes
    • short quick taps for every subsequent minute.

    For example:

    If the time is 11:24 AM, there will be one long tap that signifies 10 hours, one short quick tap that signifies 1 hour. This equates to 10+1 = 11 hours.

    Now, there will be a short break followed by two long taps signifying 10+10 = 20 minutes. Next, there will be four quick taps signifying 4 minutes. It totals to 20+4 = 24 minutes.

    Terse

    The principle behind this is the same as Digits. The only difference is that if you select Terse, there will be:

    • long taps for every five hours.
    • short, quick taps for the remaining hours followed by a break.
    • long taps for every quarter-hour.

    For example:

    If the time is 11:24 AM, two long taps signify 5+5 = 10 hours. One short, quick tap signifies the next one hour. This totals to 5+5+1 = 11.

    Then there will be a short break. After that, one long tap signifies one quarter. If the time is 11:30, you will feel two long taps signifying 15 + 15 = 30 minutes.

    Morse Code

    If you select this, your Apple Watch will tap each digit of the time in Morse code.

    How to enable Taptic Time on Apple Watch

    1. Press the Digital Crown to see all your watch apps. From here, open Settings.
    2. Scroll down and tap Clock.

      Open Apple Watch Settings and tap Clock
    3. Tap Taptic Time.
    4. Switch on Taptic Time and choose one of the options – Digits, Terse, Morse Code.
    5. Press the Digital Crown to reach the watch face. Now, long-press the watch face with two fingers to know the time via vibrations.

      Tap Taptic Time enable it and choose one option

    Alternative Method: Open the Watch app on your iPhone and tap My Watch. Next, tap ClockTaptic Time.

    And voila! Now, you can feel time on your Apple Watch when it is in silent mode without having to hear or look at it.

    What’s more? With watchOS 6, Apple also introduced another Taptic Time feature that allows you to set hourly chimes on Apple Watch. Let’s learn more about it.

    What is Taptic Chime on Apple Watch and how to use it?

    Taptic Chime allows you to stay in tune with the time in a more fun way. Besides setting an hourly chime, you can also select to get alerts every 15 or 30 minutes. I use this feature as a reminder for drinking water every 30 minutes, which I almost always forget to juggle multiple tasks.

    To enable and use it, follow the below steps.

    1. Go to Settings on Apple Watch.
    2. Tap AccessibilityChimes. Toggle it on.
    3. Tap Schedule and choose the alert time – Hourly, 30 minutes, or 15 minutes.
    4. Go back and tap Sounds to choose either Bells or Birds.

      In Apple Watch Accessibility Settings tap Chimes and enable it

    Alternative Method: Open the Watch app on your iPhone and follow the above steps from #2.

    If you are unable to access Taptic Time, learn the possible problems.

    What to do if Taptic Time is not working on Apple Watch?

    Turn on Haptic Feedback

    One reason for Taptic Time not working on your Apple Watch could be that Haptic Feedback is disabled. Here’s how you can enable it:

    1. Go to Settings on Apple Watch.
    2. Tap Sound & Haptics.
    3. Switch on Haptic Alerts.
    4. Now, long-press with two fingers on the watch face and Taptic Time should work.

      In watch Settings Tap Sounds and Haptics and enable Haptic Alerts

    Disable Speak Time

    In addition to telling you the time via vibrations, you can have Apple Watch announce time by long-pressing the watch screen with two fingers. But when this feature is enabled, Taptic Time won’t work. Here is how to disable Speak Time.

    1. Go to Settings on Apple Watch.
    2. Tap Clock.
    3. Switch off Speak Time.
    4. Or, set it to Control With Silent Mode.

      In Apple Watch Settings turn off Speak Time or set it to Control With Silent Mode

    If you choose this option, Taptic Time will work when you long-press with two fingers on the watch face if the watch is in silent mode. But when the watch is in normal mode, the two-finger long-press on the watch face will speak the current time. Best of both worlds! 🤲

    I hope the above guide helped you use Taptic Time on Apple Watch seamlessly.

    FAQs of Taptic Time

    Q. What is taptic time speed on Apple Watch?

    Taptic Time speed on Apple Watch is the intensity of vibration you feel when you use Taptic Time. You can customize it by opening the watch Settings app → Accessibility → change TAPTIC TIME SPEED.

    In Apple Watch Accessibility Settings change Taptic Time Speed

    Q. How do I get my Apple Watch to announce time?

    Apple Watch can announce time if you enable the feature known as ‘Speak Time.’ For this, open watch Settings → Clock → enable Speak Time. Now, long-press the watch face with two fingers to hear the current time.

    Q. Can I make my Apple Watch chime every hour?

    Yes. To make Apple Watch chime every hour, open the watch Settings → Accessibility → Chimes → enable Chimes → tap Schedule → choose Hourly.

    Q. How do I make my Apple Watch vibrate harder?

    To make the Apple Watch vibrate harder, open its Settings → Sounds & Haptics → ensure Haptic Alerts is enabled → choose Prominent.

    Q. What are quick ways to know time on Apple Watch?

    You can raise your wrist to see the time or summon Siri on Apple Watch and say, ‘What is the time?’ Additionally, you can hear the time by enabling Speak Time or feel it on your wrist by enabling Taptic Time.

  • #AppyWeek with AK: Wakeout! for quick home workouts
  • All thanks to the Pandemic, our work-life balance has gone for a toss. Whether you have gotten a grip on the situation or are still struggling towards it, Wakeout! – Exercise breaks claims to help you out.

    Awarded by Apple as the iPhone App of the year 2020, Wakeout! boasts over 1500 creative and fun mini exercises to keep you healthy, happy, and energetic.

    Looking into my current stasis of just staring at screens, either my Mac’s or iPhone’s, it was the perfect app to pick for #AppyWeek with AK. So, did it keep me moving? Was I happier and healthier at the end of the week?

    Only one way to find out; read on!

    Wakeout! Review: Testing the iPhone App of the Year 2020

    Traveling, restaurant hopping, socializing, etc., are limited currently due to obvious reasons. While I am not happy to admit it, I am desk-, sofa-, or bed-bound for almost all day long, either typing away, testing apps/products, or binge-watching some thriller movies on Netflix.

    And many people are sailing in the same boat!

    Working Work From Home GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

    However, small steps lead to significant changes, and Wakeout! is designed to encourage you to devote 30 seconds to 2.5 minutes towards a healthier you.

    Wakeout iOS app is designed to encourage you towards a healthier life

    The best part is that the app adapts to your environment. Whether you are at the home, office, a coffee shop, or traveling, sitting, standing, or typing, there’s a regime.

    How Wakeout! helps you stay fit and focussed!

    Can a 30-second session help me reach my fitness goal? Well, it won’t. Wakeout! is not designed with that mindset, and that’s what sets it apart from other apps.

    The brief exercises are meant to break the sedentary pattern of your day-to-day life. This, in turn, helps to enhance your mood, be more productive, and reduces stress.

    How Wakeout iOS app helps you stay fit and focussed

    Everything from the app’s logo to its UI carries a feel-good factor. And quite like the exercises it boasts, Wakeout! is pretty easy to maneuver.

    The exercises

    As soon as you enter the Wakeout! app, it encourages you to take a quick break. A random one-minute easy and fun exercise break to wake up the sleepy muscles.

    The exercises feature in Wakeout iOS app

    Next, there are the Wakeouts, a library of all exercises broadly divided into four sections:

    • Home Wakeouts
    • Workplace Wakeouts
    • Travel Wakeouts
    • Outdoor Wakeouts

    Each section further divided into categories such as Morning Energy, Bedroom, Foot Massage, Hand Health, Animalistic, Stairs, etc.

    Customize your routine with Wakeout iOS app

    Amazingly, these sub-categories have exercises segregated as per:

    • Moods – Relaxing, energizing, intense, and fun
    • Time durations – 
      • 30 seconds
      • Short Routine – 90 seconds (3 exercises) 
      • Long Routine – 2.5 minutes (5 exercises)

    The idea is to allow you to choose a custom workout depending upon where you are and what you need considering the time availability.

    Furthermore, you can choose the default music app offers or play your tunes in the background.

    Although, I feel the app needs to improve its music listing. It boasts basic, happy-go-lucky instrumentals, nothing pumping or energizing.

    The balancing act

    Doubling as a neat little productivity app, Wakeout! also offers a timer, to enable up to 90 minutes of focus time.

    The balancing act feature in Wakeout iOS app

    When the timer is done, you can choose between going back to work, a 5-minute coffee break, or a one-minute active break.

    The app also has a wind-down mode. Sadly, the section contains just one activity set, nothing like the currently available sleep aid apps in the market.

    The quirk

    I totally love how the developers have smartly and subtly incorporated colors and elements to makes things fun. Everything from the name of the exercises to the tutorial carries a swag.

    The quirk feature in Wakeout iPhone and iPad app

    Some of my favorites exercise titles are Show Me The Money, Scrambled Eggs, and Whipe Shoulders off.

    What’s more?

    As you complete an activity, Wakeout! shows your activity levels with some uber-cute animations. Totally Adorbs!

    Activity levels with animations in Wakeout iPhone app

    The Companions

    To make things more fun and approachable, Wakeout! brings plenty of tricks to the table:

    Apple Watch App – Picking your iPhone for a 30-second Wakeout! can be more distracting than helpful. So, if you happen to own an Apple Watch, you can squeeze in exercises from your wrists.

    Reminders – The aim is to inculcate a habit of taking active breaks. And for that, Wakeout! enables you to set up to 4 reminders throughout the day.

    And though I don’t understand the logic of sticking to just four reminders, the company promises that more options are on their way.

    Reminders feature in Wakeout iOS app

    Home Screen Widget – A small-sized widget that will take you to an active one-minute workout in a tap.

    Things I didn’t like about Wakeout! – Exercise breaks

    The silent tutorials do not instruct properly when you should breathe in or out.

    Plus, once the novelty of things mellows down, it gets dull and boring. There is a definite lack of encouragement and inspiration.

    And for some reason, Wakeout! doesn’t log the activities in the health app. So, your iPhone and Apple Watch will consider you inactive during that time.

    Though it works as a tremendous habit-forming app, I now consciously take breaks between my long sessions. You could try this one out if you end up sitting for hours.

    It will surely help you break the circle and inculcate a habit of moving.

    Did Wakeout! win AK over?

    In just a week, I have consciously started to take breaks. So, if you sit stationary for hours at a time for work or leisure, this might be the critical break the vicious circle and inculcate some habit.

    Although I must say that it works as a tremendous habit-forming app, I expected to fall head over heels for it.

    Overall, the $4.99/month price tag is justified for a few initial months, and later you can decide whether to continue and skip.

    What is #AppyWeek with AK?

    Apps can make our like super smooth. And I love discovering apps that are helpful, fun, innovative, and easy to use. But finding the right app isn’t an easy task.

    So, I pick an app and use it thoroughly for the whole week. Each feature and element is tested on various criteria to observe the app’s overall performance.

    In the end, I share my honest experience to help you decide whether the app is perfect for you or not. So, do follow this space for more exciting and unique apps.

    Fellow history buffs will be delighted to know that the game has been created in collaboration with Native American scholars to help lend a more nuanced and respectful representation of indigenous groups to this historic release.

    That’s pretty unheard of in other video games I’ve sampled and makes this one worth checking out. 

    As for gameplay, you have to build your travel party and embark on 12 playable journeys filled with hard choices, mysterious dangers, and unexpected situations. From blizzards to sickness, exhaustion, snakebites, and more, do you have what it takes to beat the odds and survive?

    I love the level of variety this game offers, with hundreds of events where each choice you make affects your party and future events. It tests your strategy skills while keeping you immersed in role-playing – the best of both worlds!

    Moreover, it retains the charm of the original game while adding fresh new elements.

    4. Sudoku Simple

    I have loved sudoku since before it was possible to play it on mobile. I enjoy how it challenges the mind and keeps you hooked. This game is a godsend to Apple Arcade because it offers a simple way to learn and master this ancient puzzle. 

    I thoroughly enjoy how it leverages the power of color to train your brain to understand the puzzle logic. Start off easy and gradually increase the difficulty level until you master it. 

    This is remarkable because sudoku is traditionally black and white, which can strain the eyes. Although there are other colored sudoku games, they don’t match this one’s beautiful simplicity and effectiveness. 

    Moreover, instead of directly attempting the full-fledged 9×9 puzzle, you can start with smaller ones to ease into it. Once you get into its groove, it’s quite an addictive game and good for your brain!
