Question: What audiobook and music apps(s) do you recommend for the SGP5 (basic mp3 files)? I read about Mort Player (?). Not including Overdrive or Audible - since I won't really be able to use them.
I am making a list of apps to download so I can get the device(s) setup in the US. Loooong list!
Still a bit of a muddle on the KFHD, although I've decided against another ereader (PW). I setup a 7" KFHD for a friend so I had it to play with for 3 weeks, and loved the screen/speakers. The GUI didn't bug me and I could play most everything I needed to - so that was all good. I just found the 7" too small for reading papers, playing online Bridge, magazines and most webpages. All that page moving around gave me a headache. I don't mind holding the DX at 9.7" - I just prop it up. I do find my husband's 11.6" Sony to be quite large and bulky, but OK for sometime use. I thought that 9" might be "just right"
Figure I'd use it for browsing, online Bridge (the 7" doesn't have enough screen size) and occasional magazine/paper reading. Amazon has removed the free 2-day delivery option now (and some of the other KFHD product discounts), so I may have to decide sooner. Or not at all.
If it is this much of a decision, I should probably just wait for the next generation!
PS - I haven't sewn much lately, basically some crafts for charity bazaars. I am trying to use my (huge! - I am in a textile-producing city, Thessaloniki) fabric stash now to make casual clothes since I am now retired. Perhaps I should get a new serger in the US rather than the KFHD.
Sears stopped selling sergers. Which is where I got mine, it was actually a serger made by a Japanese company (can't remember) so don't look there, lol.
The Apps I use and can remember are: Advanced Task Killer Free (from Google Play) Moon + (from GP) Screen Dim (Amazon or GP) HD battery (I was using Gsam battery, but noticed it seemed to drain my battery and it was the paid version, I may try again sometime) Talkatone (GP) MortPlayer (GP) and Mortplayer widgets (GP) Wi-fi Switch (Amazon I think & GP)
I would get the bigger KFHD if that is what you like, why not? Between the SGP5 and KFHD seems like you got it covered for everything.
The MortPlayer Audiobook I use I like, the Samsung earbuds control the player. For some reason they don't work on the Audible App. The Moon + Reader Pro also will sync with Dropbox, haven't tried it yet, but it is suppose to.
In another thread I mentioned I force closed Audible and my battery life is great now on the KFHD. I used The Advanced Task Killer for that. I like it better than the Gsam battery for killing apps, it was too confusing for me. I guess everyone is different on what Apps they end up liking.
