Notif-review

Ever since Android saw a total revamp of it’s pulldown notification system, I’ve been impressed. I’d always wondered, though, how could I create my own custom notifications? After doing some research, I discovered Notif.

Notif allows you to create four different types of custom notification, and it does it all for free. Interested? Find out more after the break.

hotels-by-orbitz-android-app

Orbitz.com, one of the market’s leading resources for travel and booking online, has recently released an Android app, Hotels by Orbitz, where users can find, book and indulge in hotels at thousands of venues spread across the globe, whether it be for the night or the near future.

Fibble

When you think of Crytek, what comes to mind? For most of us it is games like Far Cry and Crysis. Don’t let these titles fool you into thinking that Crytek can only do hardcore gaming, though. The casual-oriented Fibble – Flick n’ Roll quietly landed on Android back in September, offering a dramatically different kind of gaming experience.

google play search

Back in the day Google’s search engine made directory type sites (like Yahoo!) obsolete because now everything could be found using a search tern, but the Google Play Store is essentially a directory of apps. Every time I use it to try and find an app I think I am back in the mid-90s. Surely Google must be able to take the mighty power of its search engine and combine it with some clever technology (like the bits that power Google News) and come up with a better way for Android users to find apps. The fact that services like AppBrain exist means that Google has more it could do.

Modern Combat 3

Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4 might be just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation isn’t worth picking up in the meantime. MC3 not only has reasonably good graphics and fast-pacing shooting mechanics, it is also dirt cheap. You can get the game for just $.99, today only.

We’ve all been there, anxiously checking our phones, making sure we didn’t miss that important call we’ve been expecting. Maybe your wife is pregnant. Maybe you just interviewed for a new job.
