Du Battery Saver

DU Battery Saver & Widgets is an easy to use free battery saver app for Google Android which easily increases the battery life of your Google Android Smartphone and tablet by stopping background apps from running, and optimizing Android settings like brightness, wi-fi, screen time out, sync, data, etc for maximum battery life savings to extend the time before you need to charge your device.  Du Battery Saver stops background apps when you hit the optimize button, and agree to stop them.

By stopping background apps, your phone or tablet will also run faster because they are not using up RAM, and CPU cycles after DU Battery Booster stop them from running. In the paid/pro version of Battery Saver there is also a auto clear background apps, and clear apps when screen is locked to help save battery life, and also free up RAM and CPU resources for better performance by stopping background apps from running. You can also set Du Battery Saver to not stop certain apps like chat apps in the settings menu.

Du Battery Saver claims to increase your battery life time by up to 50% for the free version, and 70% for the paid pro version which you can get from installing free apps which reward Du coins from the Toolbox tab.

By charging your mobile less, you will also save some money on electricity over time, and also your battery won’t wear out as quickly as charging it multiple times a day.

I like the line graph which shows me how fast my battery is draining, and charging, and the design of the different skins for the battery widget looks nice. The modern design of DU Battery Saver also looks very nice. The battery widgets for Battery Saver also look very nice.

MX Player video player app

MX Player is a free video player app which can open many types of video files. I can open MP4, divx, avi, mkv, and many other different types of video files with MX Player. It also supports subtitles. Video playback in MX Player is pretty smooth with no stuttering or slow frame rate problems when I use MX Player on my Asus Google Nexus 2012 tablet.  MX Player opens pretty quickly after tapping on its shortcut icon on my tablets home screen.

MX Player is great for watching video offline without a wifi or data connection, or worrying about going over your data cap, and paying overage fees because MX Player can work offline without needing to access the internet to stream video like YouTube. [click to continue…]


SPlayer video player

SPlayer 3.7 is a free, fast, lightweight, and easy to use video player program for Windows. It works well at opening 1080P HD MP4 and MKV video files in Windows 8.1 in my experience. It can also play all video formats which I use like MP4, MKV, AVI, etc. There is also a full screen mode which plays files in full screen mode. SPlayer also supports many different types of video files. It can even play audio files, DVDs, and Music CDs. The video playback is very smooth with no slow down problems or stuttering, and the sound quality is good when playing back video or music.

Splayer also does not use much RAM, or CPU resources, so I could even use it on older Windows XP computers without much slowdown. It starts up pretty quickly when I open it by clicking the Splayer shortcut on my desktop, or clicking on a video file on my computer. There is even a high performance mode in Splayer for older and slower computers. The low computer resource usage of Splayer should help you save a little bit of battery life, or electricity while watching video or listening to music, and multi-tasking should be faster as well.

SPlayer is also very stable, and never crashes when I use it to play video on my computer.
