You can use your Android phone to remotely access and control your computer through a technology known as VNC or virtual network computing. This is one of those solutions that can help out in situations... like say you want to travel light and leave behind your laptop, or you’ve forgotten an important file in your desktop at home, or even remotely assist a friend with some technical issue on his PC. There...

As you may know, Hulu has some strange policies for their service. You can’t watch the free version of Hulu on your phone or tablet for example, even though you can on your PC. It seems... like an artificial restriction meant to squeeze more money from their customers in my opinion, but hopefully all this will change if Google buys Hulu.

But until then we have something else that...

The rise of smartphones marks the decline of SMS era. It’s a no-brainer that users will opt for the free apps offering free communication to other users across all operating systems and mobile... carriers, rather than going for paid texting plans. Here’s a list of some of the best apps that definitely give SMS a run for its money.

As a long time user of Fraps on PC, Screencast came as a blessing. Screencast is an app for Android that has the ability to record exactly what is happening on my phones screen, much the same as Fraps... can do on my PC. The possibilities of this app are endless, and the developers at Media Solutions make it easy, as long as your device is rooted (which is to be expected). When I opened Screencast, I wa...

Here’s some more good news for Android fans. Ovum, a telecoms analyst group, projects that over 18 billion applications will be downloaded this year. Of these 18 billion,... only 6 billion will be for the Apple OS. A sizable number, but the remaining 12 billion is being shared between its rivals. The lion’s share of this bounty is being gobbled up by the other dominant OS...

I’ve wrote about GetJar before, the app marketplace where every app is free to download. It seems that giving away free stuff works for them and they’ve ventured into giving away even more... free stuff, which is of course great for us Android owners.

GetJar Gold is a premium service that will offer free full versions of games like Age of Zombies and Fruit Ninja THD and apps l...

Netflix-support

That took a while, but better late than never. I actually didn’t expect them to bring the Netflix app to all Android 2.2 and 2.3 devices so quickly, mainly because they’ve said it’s... a DRM issue, and they want to protect the content on the behalf of the content owners. Either those content owners changed their minds recently, or Netflix managed to convince them that it won’t be so b...

Whether you want to escape the tiered plans or the throttled data from T-mobile, now you have an opportunity to do that (but do it while it lasts). A developer has managed to create an Android... app called Smozzy that looks very much like a browser, but it works completely different from one.

In a way I suppose it works a bit like Opera Mini, since it compresses the webpage into an image...

I grabbed myself a few free Android games a while back from GetJar and the Market recently, and all of them were quite excellent. Here’s a quick rundown of my thoughts on each of them

Robotek... HD

This game is from the makers of Totemo and Everlands and offers a very rich tactical game for the low price of free. You play the last hope of mankind during a time when machines rule the w...

VLC Media Player, a popular cross-platform and opensource multimedia player, is about to make inroads into the Android platform. VideoLAN recently announced that it is currently about to put its VLC... Media Player app in private beta testing.

Android users who wish to participate in the beta testing for the Android version of the VLC Media Player will have to register for the program. The be...
