There’s more and more content consumption through our Android. Following that, today I bring to you Evaristo’s app review, which:
(..) has news, has blogs, has useful contents as also useless ones, something to make laugh and to make you think, it has what you need to start the day, or to review what happened, it has a lot of things…
Right from the start we can tell that the name of the app wasn’t given by chance, it originated in a known Portuguese sentence.
Evaristo, my man, ‘got a can?
An app of Portuguese origin, developed by MeshApp, Evaristo promises to offer a great variety of contents, in an array of formats, in an organized and easy way to access.
The simplicity of this app is without a doubt welcome, and it’s verified in the moment we start the app, here we can find several types of contents organized by categories, which in turn are organized in a set of topics for an easier access to the desired content. Some of the categories are updated throughout time, according to the events that are occurring, or the topics that may be in headline at the time, to this day the ones that exist are:
- Most Recent;
- Most Popular;
- Rally Special;
- Only Blogs;
- For Women;
- For Men;
- Looking for a Job? ;
- Looking for a House?
For example, in the starting menu, if we click in the sports category, we will find several topics such as Football, Surf, and Tennis etc. Choosing the topic we’ll go to a timeline with several types of information available, on which we have photos, videos, links, status, audio e retweet. On the upper right corner, inside of each topic we can choose what type of information we want hidden or not, this way we aren’t “bombarded” with contents that don’t interest us at the moment.
On the upper left corner we can find the app’s main menu, where we can access our favourite topics (Interests Menu), our saved articles, the share button and the app’s configuration menu. As you would expect the configurations are scarce due to the app’s simplicity.
Despite the high competition on this type of apps, Evaristo manages to distinguish itself by its way of display an enormous amount of contents in an appealing way, simple, customizable and quick, all in one app. On this app we can count with many hours of contents, more than 100 sources of information, to satisfy all of our curiosities, to keep updated or just to kill some time. Still in Beta version, on a short term we await for news about new functions.
Performance e battery consumption
Performance wise, no change was noted on the performance of the device. The same can be said about the battery, no change regarding time and battery life was noted while using this app.
Certainly all of us will find in Evaristo some content that will pique our interest, whether to read an important or not news, whether to spend those 10 minutes that we’ll have to wait for something, or even to relax on the couch after a long day’s work. All of this characteristics make this app an excellent addition to our app list on our Android devices.
