March 23, 2015 Leave a comment

One thing I hate is unwanted programs especially ones I never use taking up space whether there good or bad

My 13 apps needed March 2015 the rest get BINNED

Windows movie maker (not the best but it works for me and what I need PLUS side its free)

Acestream vlc (this is a must but you need firefox to make it work)

Bonjour (this makes the tablet remote work with KODI, no install no remote)

Garmin Virb edit (add the speed/power overlay onto video’s, needed till SHIMANO GET THERE LAUNCHED)

Google Chrome (works for me)

Firefox (needed for Acestream)

Java (needed for some website still 😦

KODI (XBMC media players a bit like netflix but free so better)

Libre office (why pay for MS word or excel when these guys do it free and better ??)

Mediatek drivers for the N speed dongle (no drivers no action/speed)

Quicktime (needed for kodi stuff)

VLC player (acestream is the same really but tweaked for ACESTREAM links)

So that’s my current top 13 programs / apps I need the rest get binned, can’t wait for the new SSD to arrive I hope it so fast it makes the computer sing 🙂
