The Biggest Violoncello for Android Update Ever!

Hey, everyone! While there have certainly been some very major Violoncello for Android updates over the last year or so, this one might just take the cake in terms of importance. While version 1.9.0 might initially seem like yet another incremental upgrade over the previous release, it actually brings a lot of frequently requested features to the app. So, without further ado, here’s what’s new!
  • Main Menu: Of all of the changes that come with this update, this is probably the most noticeable of them all. Gone is the old menu, located in the top-right corner, replaced with a sleek, easily reachable, and spacious grid of tiles for different browser functions. I am very proud of how this new menu has turned out, and I think it's definitely a massive improvement over its predecessor!
  • Tabs: Yes, you read that right. At long last, Violoncello finally offers tabbed browsing! The tab manager can be accessed from the new main menu, or you can alternatively hold the menu button to get there. Tabs work pretty much how you would expect, and they certainly make browsing easier.
  • Huge UI Updates: Aside from the aforementioned main menu redesign, Violoncello has also seen many smaller user interface improvements in this update. UI elements are now generally easier to reach, less cluttered, and more visually consistent.
  • Other Changes: While I have covered most of the major changes in this update, there are some notable smaller tweaks that have been made, too. Some less important features have been removed or significantly altered, many things have been rearranged, and some bugs have also been fixed. While these changes may require you to relearn some parts of the app, my hope is that it will make it more intuitive and user-friendly in the long run.
To conclude, as you can undoubtedly tell by this point, this is no tiny update! I have really enjoyed making it, and I sincerely hope that you find the features it introduces helpful. As always, thank you so much for reading, and you can get the latest version of Violoncello for Android from the Play Store. Enjoy!

This is Violoncello's handy new main menu.

Tabs are finally here, too!

Late 2014 Mac mini in 2022 - Still Worth Buying?

About a year ago, I reviewed the 2014 Mac mini on this blog. Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that it was still an excellent machine for productivity tasks, but it could also handle some more intense things you threw at it. Thus, it became my daily driver up until I upgraded to a 2017 MacBook Air a few months ago. That being said, I’ve still been using it some, so I thought I’d briefly share how it’s holding up these days. Here are my thoughts on this miniature Macintosh one year later! Performance  Over the last year, I’ve been impressed by how much this Mac can handle. It’s rocking a 2.6 GHz dual-core Core i5 with 8 GB of RAM and a Samsung 860 Evo 1 TB SATA SSD. What all that jargon essentially means is that it’s a moderately powerful little computer, although it certainly isn’t going to put newer Macs to shame. Regardless, I’ve been able to do lots of coding, video editing, and schoolwork on this computer, and it has generally worked pretty well. Granted, it can take a while to

Violoncello for Windows is finally here!

Hi, everyone! Ever since I first started working on it over a month ago, I have spent countless hours creating and perfecting Violoncello for Windows. Featuring a slick and minimal UI, lots of customization options, and support for Windows versions going all the way back to XP, I am very pleased with how the Windows version of Violoncello has turned out. As a result, I am very excited to announce that Violoncello for Windows has finally been released! Violoncello for Windows is packed with features, some of which are found in the mobile version, and others that are not. Some of these include: Open in main browser: Easily open the page you are currently viewing in Violoncello in your default browser! Custom search engine: Choose from Bing, Google, DuckDuckGo, Wikipedia, or set your own. Lots of customization: Change the background and text colors, and choose a font. Bookmarks: Easily manage and visit bookmarks. Jump to top: Quickly jump to the top of a page. (0, 0) Those are most of the

September 2023 Photo Dump

Hey, everyone! It's been a while! I'm glad to say that I am not dead; I have been going to the gym, doing school stuff, and taking a bunch of photos. I recently acquired a Canon Rebel T7, and it should be no surprise that I have been using it a lot lately. I have taken it around my hometown, on a trip to Elk Rapids, Michigan, and to the neighboring town to get some pictures of some friends' cars (2011 Camaro & 2017 WRX). So, for the first new post in forever, I wanted to share some of my favorite recent photos. Sit back, relax, and enjoy! Shot with a Canon Rebel T7. Lenses used: Canon 18-55mm EFS mount lens (the one that comes with the T7) and a Canon 75-300mm lens (EF mount). All pictures were shot in manual mode.
