I’ve said it before – even with high-end devices nowadays featuring quad-core processors and HD displays, it has always been the “simple” games like Angry Birds and Temple Run that have rocketed to the top of the charts on both the Android and iOS platforms. But there is a reason that we all want multi-core processors and high resolution displays, and checking e-mail in HD just isn’t that reason.
It might just be me, but one of the reasons I wanted and bought a device with high end specs is for cutting-edge gaming. While Angry Birds is a lot of fun and I had to force myself to stop playing Temple Run so I could write this piece, it’s [...]
Bat-and-ball games, for some reason, attract a hefty number of fans the world over. Baseball, softball, and cricket are three of the more famous variations of bat-and-ball games, cricket being the most famous.
Surprised it’s not baseball? Apparently cricket sits in the second spot as the world’s most popular sport, next to football. The sport’s popularity is mainly due to its large number of fans in India, Australia, and some parts of Asia and Europe. The sport was the brainchild of the British, so it’s really not surprising to know that those areas got hooked with it, since these places were once colonized by the British Empire.
One of the greatest trials a couple can go through is being in a long distance relationship. Less time to see each other, shorter conversations on the phone (especially if you are particular about phone bills), longer nights without the other, and a lot more that could pose a threat to your relationship. Being far from each other is, most of the time if not always, coupled with trust issues.
Whether you’ve been together for eons or for a couple of weeks, trust is key to every relationship, especially when both of you are separated by thousands of miles.
Frequent text messaging, calling, and chatting are probably the first three solutions you’ll [...]

If you are the type of person who loves seeing things in order or in correct, uniform categories, then managing your music library is probably more of a pleasure than a task. Most people would just dump their music files on their phones, not taking into mind if the files are named and sorted properly. Just as long as the audio file plays, everything else is not necessary.
But, then again, not all of us are under the umbrella of “most people”. Some of us would still want to organize our music files even to the most minute detail. The only thing we need is an application that does just that, and probably more, without even touching the [...]
We recently did a post about the best Android apps for mothers and moms, so now it’s dad’s time to shine. The father is often called the King of the House, but he’s more than just that. He’s also as involved as mothers are in the household chores, work, and taking care of the kids.
That’s why we’ve put together apps that can help dads manage the house, keep track of the kids, put together a special meal when it’s his turn of the week to cook, and keep updated with his favorite sports.C25K Couch to 5K by RunDouble

With the surge of various applications developed for Android, almost anything and everything can be done using a smartphone. Smartphones today are not just utilized for calling, mailing, and other basic functions but are also capable of a few more uses that most of us haven’t even thought possible.
There are apps that showcase utility and entertainment at the same time, some are purely for fun, and some are mainly focused on function. Users download and purchase apps, thinking that these apps could come in handy in one or a number of occasions, or these apps could occupy their free time from work or school. Whatever the purpose is, apps are must-haves for Android [...]
There are many replacement keyboard apps floating around the Play Store, but some simply don’t stand up to the acid test of daily use. While some of these keyboard apps are “smart” enough, they disappoint in the usability department. Others are intuitive and easy to use, but don’t add enough functionality to warrant a change from the stock keyboard on your device.
For app developers, it’s not easy to come up with an app that satisfies the needs of power users, without pushing away the more casual user base. It takes a lot of tweaking, usability testing, and listening to feedback, and as a result, many Android keyboard apps simply [...]
If you’re like most people (and I bet you are), you instantly turn to your smartphone or tablet when you’re (1) bored while waiting for the bus, (2) trying to look busy to avoid small talk, or (3) pretending to be looking for something on your phone to avoid an awkward situation.
Whipping out your device and scribbling doodles on a sketchbook app may prove to be a great escape. Or, maybe you just really want to practice some brushstrokes and painting styles, intent on making a masterpiece that will give Michaelangelo a run for his money.
Whether it’s just curbing your boredom or actually trying to refine your artistic skills, you’ll find [...]
Always make sure to protect your privacy. In this digital age, this means setting powerful passwords and carefully picking codes that should be impossible for other people to figure out. Unless you’ve memorized them by heart or you’ve written them down somewhere, we might have the tendency of forgetting complicated passwords.
Unfortunately, your phone wasn’t built to tolerate multiple failures to input the correct code and you might find yourself locked out. Today we’re introducing you to an alternative to unlocking your phone without having to memorize a series of letters or numbers.
