How to Uninstall Windows 10’s Built-in Apps (and How to Reinstall Them)
Via Windows Secrets

"Windows 10 includes a variety of universal apps, and there’s no easy way to hide them from the “All Apps” view in the new Start menu. You can uninstall them, but Microsoft doesn’t allow you to easily uninstall them in the usual way."

Combating “Fake News” With a Smartphone “Proof Mode” – Guardian Project
"... ProofMode, a light, minimal “reboot” of our more heavyweight, verified media app, CameraV. Our aim was to create a lightweight (< 3MB!), almost invisible utility (minimal battery impact!), that you can run all of the time on your phone (no annoying notifications or popups), that automatically adds extra digital proof data to all photos and videos you take. This data can then be easily shared, when you really need it, through a “Share Proof” share action, to anyone you choose over email or a messaging app, or uploaded to a cloud service or reporting platform."

Software Defined Radio App Store | Hackaday
" LimeSDR is an open source SDR with a crowdfunding campaign. By itself, that’s not anything special. There are plenty of SDR devices available. What makes LimeSDR interesting is that it is using Snappy Ubuntu Core as a sort of app store. Developers can make code available, and end-users can easily download and install that code."

10 Powerful Audio Recording Apps - Android.AppStorm
November 25th 2013 "Unless you’re a radio producer, the days of needing dedicated voice recorders are long behind us. Mobile phones and tablets have built-in microphones that are perfectly acceptable for private use in listening back on interviews, meetings, lectures, or random musings. And they even tend to do alright nowadays with music at concerts. But to get good-quality audio, you still need to do some tweaking. And there are apps for that. I’ve searched high and low for the best advanced audio recording apps, all of which include powerful features that help you get the sound just right. If you only want to record quick voice memos, these will all be overkill, but for the professionals who need clear, crisp audio on a budget, they might be just the ticket."

Google Searches for Role in App Age - Mar 2014
"As Smartphones Undercut Traditional Web Browsing, New Tack Is Needed for Ads" "Its name has become a verb meaning "to search," but as users shift to mobile devices, Google Inc. is suddenly faced with the threat that its search engine—and its advertising business—are becoming less relevant." "In response, Google in the fall launched an initiative to better see—and direct—what smartphone and tablet users do on their devices. The effort seeks to mimic what Google built on the Web, with an index of the content inside mobile apps and links pointing to that content featured in Google's search results on smartphones." "Facebook is ahead of Google with this type of advertising." "Besides encouraging app downloads, Facebook is now betting that it can get users to "re-engage" with apps they already have on their device. In October it launched "mobile app ads for engagement" that allow app developers to buy deep links pointing back to apps users have already installed"
