They are always busy in their kitchens, cooking up the best and newest Android apps to help you with your various life needs — whether to satisfy your craving for entertainment, to find information fast, to tickle your funny bone, to give you your RDA of adrenaline, or to help you learn something new or develop your skills.

Who needs real life friends when you have all your virtual buddies online and available to chat with 24/7, right? If you’re rather partial to Samsung’s ChatON instant messaging app, the phone maker has just updated the app with more features and bug fixes.
The first thing you probably notice when you load the app is the new ChatON logo, but the other changes do go beyond skin deep. Being one of the major sponsors of the 2012 Summer Olympics, it’s only natural for the company to try and bring the excitement over to customers. Hence, you can now befriend an Olympic buddy on ChatON to get the latest on the epic competition.

You know that you’re old when they start remaking the movies you’ve first seen as a child.
The new Total Recall will hit theaters next week, and along with it, the now customary mobile game tie-in. However, for some reason, the mobile game has hit the app stores early. Developed by Jump Games, Total Recall for Android and iOS arrived today for $0.99, promising “non-stop adrenaline-pumping action” and an “unique look and feel inspired directly by the movie”.
Total Recall for Android is a first person rail shooter that closely follows the story line of the upcoming Total Recall. You’ll be playing as Douglas Quaid, and your mission is nothing less than to discover [...]
Dead Trigger was recently updated and soon after that Madfinger Games decided to offer the game free of charge in the Google Play store, instead of keeping the $0.99 price in place.
Then the developer revealed that due to the high piracy rate, it made the game free of charge on Android, a move that prompted one other app developer to explain why devs would rather choose iOS as the first platform to create mobile apps on – the reason is again piracy in the Android ecosystem.
At the same time, gamers that purchased the game, may have felt strange to hear that the game they paid a dollar for is now free.
With all that in mind, you [...]
The original Final Fantasy was published in December 1987 on the NES, at a time when it’s lead creator, Square’s Hironobu Sakaguchi, was about to give up on the game industry. It was success or bust. Fortunately, the title was a hit and went on to spawn an entire media franchise over the years, that currently includes 14 main titles and countless ports, spinoffs, anime series, and feature films.
Yesterday, Square Enix has quietly launched the legendary Final Fantasy to Android devices. The game follows Final Fantasy III, which made quite a splash a few weeks ago, when it was launched on Google Play for a hefty $15.99. The original Final Fantasy for Android is just [...]
Google Handwrite is one feature that Galaxy Note owners will be happy to get. The newly unveiled function will make the Note’s stylus even more useful – users can now search on Google by handwriting the words. And, while this sounds like the perfect application for the stylus of the Galaxy Note, Handwrite seems to work just as well with fingers.
To use the new Handwrite feature, go to your Search Settings at the bottom of the Google.com page and enable it. A small toolbar will then pop up at the bottom of the page on smartphones running Android 2.3+, tablets running Android 4.0+, and on all iOS 5+ devices.
The Handwrite input method will work [...]
The reason everyone is moving to smartphones is because of the endless possibilities made available to users thanks to the app world. There are 600,000+ apps available on the Google Play Store, enough to satisfy everybody’s requirements. Anything you can think of, there’s probably an app for it.
Yet, as consumers, we tend to ignore the person or team behind these apps. Most of the apps on the various app stores are created by third-party developers, who spend hours and works very hard to make our lives easier. Today, we give you a small glimpse into the thought process behind the design and creation of an app, with the Alarm clock app by DoubleTwist. If you [...]
I’ve talked before about how I wish we’d all move on from the ARMv6 architecture, now that we’re already getting so close to the launch of the 64 bit ARMv8 architecture within the next 2 years. The sad reality is that most devices, especially the low-end ones, are still on this decade old architecture.
Hopefully, with the launch of Cortex A7 next year, which is built on ARMv7, we’ll finally start to forget about ARMv6, at least for new devices. Google has already started doing that with Chrome, for example, which only supports the ARMv7 architecture, even if you have Android 4.0 on your phone.
Until recently, Firefox for Android only [...]
If you’re a Reddit fan you have hopefully came across Reddit Sync on Google Play. Widely considered to be one of the best Reddit apps available, Reddit Sync became popular thanks to all the ‘little things’ that the developer put in, and the new ones that come along with the weekly releases. So, what’s in these recent updates for Reddit Sync?Imgur album browsing
When someone links to an Imgur album on Reddit, you won’t have to use a micro-browser to view the pictures on Imgur’s site. Reddit Sync pulls them down as you view them in a Gallery-style image viewer. Each picture is numbered, and the total amount of images shown. Here is an [...]
