      I just wanted to share this great email app with you all. It’s Mailbird! I have been using Google’s Inbox through a browser (thanks to @woody for recommending it in his For Dummies books), and really liked it, but this program is more or less unbeatable! One thing that would make it way better, in my opinion, would be if it was available through the Windows Store and had a live tile. But other than that, it is quite innovative. You can connect A Lot of different accounts to it (Facebook, WhatsApp, Hangouts, Calendar, etc.), and monitor them through a cool sidebar. For example, you can keep an eye on what people are posting on Facebook while scanning your inbox, or pull up your calendar to check on appointments while composing an email. Here is a good summary of it.

      I am curious, what are some favorite methods of yours? Anyone using Outlook? 🙂 If so, are you enjoying it?…

      My favorite app of all time is Microsoft Movie Maker. Unfortunately, this extremely useful app is no longer available. In fact, for some reason it wouldn’t install in my Windows 7 VM; it did install in my Windows 8.1 VM. So whenever I have a video to edit, I open the Windows 8.1 VM and get with it.

      I have found that if I first copy the video to the VM’s hard drive, then open it in Movie Maker, it is a lot faster than if I try to edit the video directly on my shared drive.

      As for apps which are currently available, I would say that Audacity is my favorite. Sometimes I teach, and I always record my lectures. Audacity allows me to easily cut out the empty space before and after the actual lecture, as well as things like coughs. And I can amplify the volume in those places in the recording where someone in the class is asking a question, allowing their question to be heard on the recording.

        Yes, Audacity is one of my favorites, I use it for digitizing cassette tapes.

      I’ve been using Thunderbird since I don’t know when and don’t plan to change.

      Posting an affiliate link (where you get a reward for recommending a product) is a no-no. Unless I do it, of course, for the benefit of the site. So I edited out the affiliate part of the links.
