Waffles hold a certain appeal for some individuals. Chances are, just saying the word "waffles" brings a particular image to mind (and a rumble to the stomach). Be they Belgian waffles, with their deep pockets waiting to be filled with deliciousness, or chocolate waffles with their deliciousness woven right into the batter, waffles present a challenge in that there are so many possibilities, yet only one breakfast per day.

Screenshot Maker Pro allows you to create screenshots with a digital photo of your iPhone as the frame. The app doesn't offer clear instructions and lacks some features that would make the editing process a lot more customizable, but the digital iPhone looks great and the resulting screenshots are perfect for sharing or even for using on your Web site, as a promotional tool.
When you open Screenshot Maker Pro it will show a picture of the iPhone you are using for your screenshot borders. This can be changed in the settings menu, as well. You can then add … Read more
slideshow Maker creates quality slideshows from any number of photos that you can then enhance with your favorite tunes. It's a free app and doesn't come with any watermarks, which makes it worth trying out.
Before you get started with your slideshows, you have to deal with an ad agreement. If you accept it, the app will insert ads all over your phone, including in your browser and status bar. slideshow Maker loaded our entire gallery pretty fast and, with just a quick tap on each, we were able to select as many pictures as we wanted to … Read more
Creative Collage Maker breaks the mold of template apps to help you create collages that look just like the ones you can manually create with printed photos. Despite its annoying adds, it remains one of the most dynamic collage apps available on Android.
Instead of giving you a bunch of collage templates like other similar apps, Creative Collage Maker turns your photos into resizable Polaroids that you can organize in any way you want. The end result looks a lot like the handmade collages that teenagers make from magazines and display on their bedroom walls. You can choose from 20 … Read more
Video Maker Pro Free allows you to create custom videos, add basic effects, and edit them. This app is far from perfect, though, and it suffers from lags and glitches that make creating and editing videos a less than enjoyable experience. On top of the performance issues, there are a lot of ads to deal with, as well.
You shouldn't be deceived by the nice interface and fetching icon pack -- what's underneath the hood is far less impressive. We experienced a noticeable lag time when trying to open a video, and then had to deal with frequent … Read more
With a competitive $199 retail price, the Cuisinart SS-700 is a handsome-looking kitchen appliance with thoughtful design and durable-feeling construction. It is designed to make single servings of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate in less than a minute by way of a K-Cup brewer design licensed from Keurig. If you're environmentally conscious, using the nonrecyclable K-Cups will likely not appeal to you, but unlike three of the five other brewers we tested, the SS-700 includes a reusable coffee filter. That fact, along with its sturdy construction and a generous three-year limited warranty make the Cuisinart SS-700 a sound choice … Read more
When its patent on the highly successful K-Cup technology expired in 2012, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, which acquired Keurig back in 2006, needed a new gameplan. Its answer: the Keurig Vue, a single-serve coffee brewer that uses the new Vue pack, a coffee pod that's patent-protected through 2021.
Does the new design make the $199.99 Keurig Vue V700 a worthy addition to your kitchen? For many coffee drinkers we say "yes." If you're committed to pod-based coffee, the V700 and the Vue pack make a better-tasting cup than the K-Cup equivalent. And, unlike the K-Cup, … Read more
With a retail price of $179, the Keurig K75 Platinum Brewer sits in the middle of the price spectrum among the sub-$200 single serve brewers we've reviewed. Overall, it is a reasonably priced, reasonably sized brewer that performs only adequately compared with its companions on the market. It has the ability to make coffee, tea, or hot chocolate using the brands available in the Keurig K-Cups or your own ground coffee or tea with the purchase of a separate reusable brew basket. One of our primary complaints about the machine centers around its construction, which seems light and … Read more
We targeted high-end, single serve coffee makers in one of our first appliance round-ups, and we were surprised at how much diversity we found. We expected some differences in their features--different programming options, maybe a unique brewing mode or two--but what really stood out for us was the differences in flavor between each unit, even using the same kind of coffee.
Features and usability are important, too. For many coffee drinkers, all that matters at 6:30 am is that the caffeine comes fast and easy. If that's all you care about, you don't need to spend more … Read more
