As they say, "there's an app for that", viz. List My Apps.

Thank you! I should have thought that there might be an app for that  :)  I'll try it and edit my previous post with the appropriate links

Also, I didn't know the "viz." expression. English is not my native language. So now I know something new (even though it's technically latin, but still)

BTW, I don't know if this is still valid, (it's four days old and I've already upgraded so I can't check), but both the standard free Android and iOS version of City Maps 2Go can be upgraded to the Pro or Premium version for free via an upgrade code. [HotDealsUK]

Android: CityMaps2Go Plan Trips Travel Guide Offline Maps
iOS: CityMaps2Go Offline Map

Codes: PROSUPP or PREMSUPP for Pro or Premium upgrade, respectively.

Thanks! I've just tried it and it still works

Thanks for this useful little tool

I can confirm that MSE on Windows 7 still detects it as malware. I had to add it to the exclusions list

A small bug (?) that I noticed: Systemus doesn't detect the MAC address of my PCIe wifi card. It just displays "N/A"

is there anything else that could be particularly useful that you might want?

I think the Default Gateway and/or DNS Server(s) would nicely complement the IP address

After a (fairly) long hiatus, I'm posting in this great forum again  :)

Here's a list of most of the interesting Android apps I'm using. I didn't include some I use a lot because they are either too niche or local (country)-specific

These are the ones that I think will be of most interest to other forum members:

    [*] aCalendar+: a different user interface for Gmail calendar (needs Gmail calendar as the back end) with some great additional features
    [*] Adobe Acrobat: the Android version of Acrobat Reader. I just prefer to read pdf files with it than with other, more general, readers
    [*] Bromite: in their own words "Bromite is Chromium plus ad blocking and privacy enhancements". Not my default browser, though
    [*] CPU-Z: the Android version of the program. Lots of information about the smartphone's hardware
    [*] Droid Info: similar to CPU-Z, but with some different info reported about the smartphone's hardware
    [*] Flipboard: a magazine/RSS reader with a great interface. Can be customized with your own interests/news sources
    [*] FolderSync: allows you to sync folders either within the device (including the SD Card, if present) or between the device and a cloud folder (Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, etc.)
    [*] Forvo: pronunciation app. Ideal for example for when you're wondering how to pronounce that difficult foreign word
    [*] JuiceSSH: a nice SSH app. Can be enhanced with plugins
    [*] Keepass2Android: a great app to keep your Keepass database available on your smartphone
    [*] LAN drive: allows you to have a SMB server on your phone, accesible by your PC, for example. I use it to transfer files wirelessly between the phone and PC
    [*] Moon+ Reader Pro: a wonderful reader app. After trying a few others, I settled for this one to read eBooks on my phone
    [*] Movie Mate: an app that connect to your Trakt account and allows you to manage your movies (Watchlist, History, Ratings, etc.). There's alsoSeries Mate for TV series
    [*] Network Cell Info Lite: gives you information about the signal strength of both your cell connection and your wifi connection. Lots of other info available (cell towers, maps, etc.)
    [*] Nodescope: the best storage usage app I could find. If you're wondering what's using your phone's internal memory, as well as the SD card, this app has a very intuitive way of presenting that information
    [*] Nova Launcher: to me, the best launcher for Android. It's a matter of personal preference though as there are a lot of diferent launchers out there (Lawnchair Launcher seems to have good reviews, for example)
    [*] Opera: my default browser. I just prefer its user interface to Bromite's. Otherwise, I would use Bromite
    [*] Phonograph: a music (/audio) app. Not too different from others, but simple and with a nice interface
    [*] Ping Tool: as the name implies, a ping app to check different (customizable) hosts. But also with a lot of other features: DNS lookup, IP scanner, etc
    [*] RealCalc: a calculator app. Has the interface of a classic scientific calculator
    [*] SD Maid: a maintenance app. Allows you to free some space by deleting unnecessary files and folders and to "vacuum" SQL databases
    [*] SkyView Free: just point it to the night sky and discover the names of the stars you're watching. Also planets, the ISS, the different constellations, etc. Wonderful app for those interested in astronomy
    [*] Snapseed: a great photo editing app. Bought by Google a while ago. Very powerful, but at the same time not too complex. I just wish it would allow me to use a custom folder to save the edited images
    [*] TED: the official TED Talks app for Android. Lots and lots of interesting content there (as those familiar with TED Talks know)
    [*] VLC: video player app. I don't do a lot of video viewing on my phone and VLC is more than enough for my needs
    [*] Wifi Analyzer: for quickly finding the signal strength of the local and neighboring wifi netwoks

    List made using List My Apps

    I apologize for not including the links to each app. Most of them I install from either Google Play or F-Droid
    List updated with the links for each app, thanks to the suggestion of List my Apps by rjbull

    Hey!  :)

    Another "lost one" here. You can strike out my name from the list :D

    It's true, I haven't been here for a while, but I'm glad to see that this great community is still going strong. Thank you Jesse for being the driving force behind it. And congratulations everyone for this 10th anniversary  :beerchug:

    I'll try to come back more often and hopefully make a post or two before the 20th anniversary  :P
