While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
Create a Shopping List by Speaking to Your WP8 Device with Speech Shopper
Grocery shopping isn’t the most riveting activity one can think of. You grab your list of things you need to purchase, drive to the nearest supermarket, and buy your groceries. Perhaps you have your shopping list on your phone, written in a simple notepad app, or maybe you prefer a certain app because of its features and functions. If you’re an owner of a Windows Phone 8 device and are looking for shopping list app, you may want to check out Speech Shopper.
Developed by XDA Recognized Developer sensboston, Speech Shopper is shopping list app with one main feature that makes it stand out from the rest of the market: speech input. Having to simply dictate what foodstuffs and other groceries are needed as they come to your mind is perhaps much easier and more convenient than having to type them out when shuffling through your fridge and cupboards, although text input is still an option. Additionally, Speech Shopper’s user interface is both logical navigation and easy on the eye with its simple and clean look. Due to limitations of Microsoft’s speech, however, some words and names may not be recognized, so you may have to type in some of the more ‘creative’ product names.
If you’ve been looking out for a capable app to serve as your shopping assistant on your WP8 device, definitely give Speech Shopper a go. Head your way over to the Speech Shopper application thread for more information.
