App of the Week: Tap Hero

I've expressed my disdain for idle clickers in the past. For the most part, they seem pointless to me. They're built to waste time, and like many mobile titles, lack any meaningful engagement. There is no progression, no sense of reward, and no real motivator to keep playing. Tap Hero tries to change that.

Relaxation is important. Being able to take a moment and let the world around you disappear while you collect your thoughts is critical. So much is demanded of us on a daily basis. From work to families to our entertainment itself. Many apps only reward daily diligence and demand players continually play to make any progress.

App of the Week: LastPass Authenticator

LastPass Authenticator
Publisher: LastPass
Platform: Android, iOS
Price: Free!

Security is super important when dealing with anything on the Internet. In addition to having a strong password, it's always smart to enable two-factor authentication if you are able to. Some providers will allow this through a text message sent to a designated phone number. Others rely on an authenticator app to provide a randomly generated pass code.

I already trust LastPass with my life essentially. So, trusting them as my two-factor authenticator was a no-brainer. Setup is easy. When enabling two-factor on an online account, a QR code will be presented. Line it up with the camera within the LastPass Authenticator app and the account will be added. Should that not be an option, you also have the choice to manually add an account via a code. The app can be secured with a PIN or fingerprint, helping to beef up security.

LastPass Authenticator is easy to use and it comes from a company I already trust. If you're serious about your security, definitely install this.

I have a problem. At one point, I was in a very abusive relationship with a game. World of Warcraft consumed my life for several years. It was all I would play, all I did, all I would talk about, and all I would dream about. It started with a friend letting me try out his account. The night elf dance and Hogger quests sucked me in. I quickly acquired my own days later. It eventually got to the point where I ran my own private server.
