About me…

With a degree in History, and later, in Documentation, I have over a decade of experience testing and writing about apps: reviews, guides, articles, news, tricks, and more. They have been countless, especially on Android, an operating system that has no secrets for me and that has evolved to become, in my opinion, the best of the existing ones thanks to its versatility. And I do it by trying to offer the most valuable features for the user, highlighting those details that usually go unnoticed, and always attentive to the latest news in software, no matter how difficult they are to find.

Although I had made other plans for myself, Malavida offered me an opportunity that I did not hesitate to take. I approach technology with great curiosity, but also with a certain skepticism because I understand it as an excellent tool to make our lives easier and not as an element that can enslave us. Technophile, yes, but with an existentialist approach.

Travel mates are more important than the destination.
Some short questions…
  • What operating system do you prefer or use the most?

    I prefer Windows and Android, which are also the two I use the most.

  • In your opinion, which is the best mobile operating system?

    Android, but just above the rest of them. I have nothing against iOS. Both have their pros and cons.

  • What application is a must on your computer?

    Google Chrome and Spotify.

  • And on your smartphone?

    WhatsApp, Spotify, Evernote, Wikipedia, Chrome and FlashScore.

  • Do you have a favourite game?

    I can’t get the Need For Speed and Call of Duty sagas out of my mind but the best game, without a doubt, is Bud Spencer & Terence Hill - Slaps And Beans.

  • Fond of social networks? Which is your favourite?

    Yes, I like them, despite their few lights and many shadows: if I had to choose, I’d go for Facebook to know what my closest ones are up to and be able to express all those mad ideas that I can’t and shouldn’t write on Malavida, Instagram to see loads of food pics and feel extremely hungry, Twitter to see how low mankind can fall and some great memes; and Tumblr because of its unfiltered content (although they’ll end up mucking it up).

  • If you had to choose, which would you say has been the greatest technological invention of the last century?

    Are we talking about the 20th or 21st century? The Internet in the 20th and the smartphone in the 21st.

  • Who do you consider has contributed most towards the development of software?

    Everyone in general and nobody in particular: every single minor progress has laid the path for the next one (although Richard Stallman is worth a mention…).
