Almost 4 years after Windows 10’s release in 2015, Microsoft has just released its May 2019 update (1903), which finally gives back full control of update scheduling to users.

Instead, I had tested Cleanfeed and Hindenburg Journalist Pro on macOS (on a Macbook Air) and the Auphonic apps on both Android and iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch). Now, I have attempted to use some my favorite audio applications on ChromeOS, specifically on a 14” IPS matte IPS Chromebook.

In the past few months, I have purchased two quite different Chromebook models, and used them to write, produce and publish two more books. The first is a CTL J4 Plus Chromebook laptop with 11.6” IPS matte screen, 801.11ac dual-band WiFi, HDMI up to 4K UHD and a physical inboard Spanish keyboard, and costs around
