MX Player: Powerful media player with background playback and new HW decoder

by: Alvin YbañezOctober 3, 2012

Our Android devices are our pocket-size media hubs. We store our music files in them and listen to them while on the road. We also store our favorite videos so we can watch them whenever we want. Our Android devices have default music and video player apps that can play media files. But, if you want a player with more features, you should try installing third-party media players on your Android device. The Google Play Store offers numerous media player apps and one of those is the MX Player.

The MX Player has been sitting on most Android devices due to the fact that it supports a lot of file formats. If that wasn’t enough, the app has also been recently updated. [...]

Best new Android games (late September edition)

by: Carl ParkerSeptember 30, 2012

“Game over” is a non-existent term in Android game developers’ books.  Day in and day out, new Android games sprout in the fertile soil of the garden known as the Google Play Store.  Popular games today started as new games, and went on to become well-liked and well-recommended.

We don’t know what will become, months from now, of the new Android games that we feature in this late September edition of our twice-a-month roundup of the best new Android games.  But, we do know they’re worth checking out.  We find these games carrying great potential.  Do you think so, too?

There’s only one way to find out: try these games.  And, [...]

New and fresh Android apps of the week (September 28 issue)

by: Carl ParkerSeptember 28, 2012

We’re just a few days away from bidding goodbye to September and saying hello to October.  Yet, when talking of Android apps, we hardly need to say bye-bye; rather, it’s mostly a case of saying hello, especially to the newest and the freshest goodies from the Android app market.

In this last week of September, say hello to some of the best new and fresh Android apps that were unleashed upon the Google Play Store this week.  We scurried and bustled about in the Store and filled our shopping basket with an app for:

crunching and computing discounts while you go shopping; searching for locally installed apps and launching them; random selection of items [...]

AireTalk: Free voice and video calls, SMS, and file sharing

by: Dan EvansSeptember 28, 2012

Keeping in touch with friends through your mobile phone is great, but it’s also rather costly. Even if you’re on a postpaid plan, constantly communicating with someone can lead to a painful bill at the end of the month.

You might like: What is SMS?

Thanks to smartphones, however, we can opt to use services such as Skype to call the ones that matter to us via the Internet. We can even go on Video Call if we really want to see our friend’s face. Skype, however, is rather limited in the ways we can communicate with our friends. PingShow has developed an app that goes beyond what Skype offers you.

AireTalk may be packed with the same [...]

Could You Survive: Zombies?

by: Dan EvansSeptember 28, 2012

I must have been about 10 years old when I saw the classic “Night of the Living Dead” by George A. Romero. Little did I know that that was the start of my love affair with zombies. Those shambling, rotting but deadly corpses certainly haven’t gone of out style and they’ve been reinvented so many times that people just can’t take them seriously anymore.

There are the scarier types, of course, the ones that run instead of slowly walk towards you, and then there are the hilarious vegetarian zombies from terrible movies (Day of the Dead, anyone?). Max Brooks certainly reignited the fear that the dead horde can bring with his Zombie Survival [...]

Telly: Sharing your life in video to social networks

by: Dan EvansSeptember 27, 2012

Though a picture can speak a thousand words, there’s nothing quite like taking a video. Capturing a picture is one thing, but a video can tell viewers a whole lot more, not to mention really immerse them in the memory. Social media has expanded way beyond just telling people what you’re doing or thinking of in 140 characters or less and taking pictures of where you are and what you’re eating and throwing a filter on it for a chic look. YouTube allowed people to create video blogs (vlogs) so that they could connect better, and services like Keek let users take a 36-second video of whatever they wanted to share.

There’s another way of keeping in [...]

Style Jukebox: Cloud-driven music syncing convenience

by: Dan EvansSeptember 27, 2012

Having a mobile device means that you can take your work with you when you step out of the house, read your latest RSS feeds when you’re on vacation, and stay connected to the music you like. Unfortunately, unless you’re very religious in syncing music between devices, chances are you’ll forget a song at home and your playlist just won’t be complete without it. You might not be able to enjoy your newest music find when you’ve left it on your computer and you completely forgot to load it up on your phone.

Imagine that scenario happening when you just have one mobile device. But, chances are, you don’t have just one gadget that you [...]

MyScript Calculator: Handwriting recognition for math computations

by: Dan EvansSeptember 27, 2012

One of the things I hated the most about statistics was not the fact that I was working with numbers but that I had to deal with long and tedious equations. It’s one thing to write the equation out on paper but a completely different thing to slowly work your way through solving it. Scientific calculators are certainly handy in tackling them, but punching in numbers can be tiring. Wouldn’t it be great if you could instantly solve your handwritten equations?

MyScript Calculator is perfect for the person who wants to manually work on math without having to actually manually solve it. Write a number on the screen with your fingertip and MyScript [...]

Battery Doctor: Diagnosing your phone’s battery health

by: Dan EvansSeptember 26, 2012

The more powerful the phone, the more things it can do. Unfortunately, the more things a phone can do, the faster its battery will drain. You can’t expect a person to multitask and not get tired, after all. It’s easy to abuse our phones. When you have a powerful processor and a lot of storage space available, it’s pretty hard not to install and use a lot of apps at one time. Though theoretically a device can last, say, up to 12 hours, you might find it kicking the bucket at only 8. It isn’t a device malfunction, but it’s the way you’re burning through your battery power. What’s an Android user to do when she or he has to stretch the [...]
