Not all users are familiar with their phone’s hardware and specifications. Most of the time, users don’t bother to check them out or even take notice of the many things that their device can do. For tech junkies and hardware enthusiasts, however, knowing what your device is capable of and how you’re using your device is important. That’s where benchmarking comes in.
The Google Play Store is chock full of benchmarking applications that each serve a specific purpose. For those of you who really care about getting hardcore information, here’s an app that is designed to get information about your camera usage.
If you’re a photography enthusiast, [...]

There’s nothing better that running in the streets with intense music in the background to fire up your adrenaline. Pumping up energy with music during a miles run is a great way to boost your stamina and makes exercising more fun. Yet, though technology has made almost all our daily activities more entertaining, it isn’t perfect. In fact, one of the most common problems runners and sprinters face is having to manually switch music tracks. Can you imagine jogging up a hill while listening to soothing jazz? It isn’t quite the same level of epic you can get from other tracks.
If you’re one of the many users who use their smartphones to listen to music [...]
Whether you’ve grown up playing the classic arcade games or you saw some of those games in movies and dreamt of being born a decade earlier, you are all probably familiar with Atari. The famous gaming developers didn’t have an easy time in adapting to the new age, but their most recent Android title doesn’t look half bad.
Centipede: Origins, recently unleashed in Google Play, is a rehashed version of the Centipede arcade game that made quite a fuss back in the ‘80s. With a fun and quirky storyline and decent visuals, Centipede: Origins might be worth your attention. And while it would have been nice for the game to have been made available for free, I’m sure that [...]
Asphalt 6: Adrenaline is considered by many the best mobile racing game in history, so it wasn’t an easy task for Gameloft to meet the expectations with the next iteration of the series.
By all means and purposes, Asphalt 7: Heat looks better than its predecessor (at least on paper), so we’re unbelievably excited to let you know that there are only four days left until the game will hit Google Play.
Already released in Apple’s App Store (boo!), Asphalt 7: Heat should be up and running for Android devices starting next Monday. The pricing hasn’t been officially confirmed just yet, but we have no reason to think that we will be (furthermore) discriminated, so it’s [...]
Flipboard, like Instagram, held off for a very long time from coming to Android, and it was unfortunate, because Flipboard is one of the apps that people like most on iOS. At the same time, it’s one of the most popular newsreader apps out there, thanks to the innovative way it shows content from social networks and other sources.
Thanks to Samsung, Flipboard came exclusively with the Galaxy S3, although unofficially this exclusivity was short lived, thanks to a leaked APK file. After a short beta period, Flipboard developers have officially launched an Android app that is available in the Play Store for everyone.
Google made an offer to buy the [...]
Most Android fans know that Google’s OS is the only mobile OS that currently supports Live wallpapers, although on a personal level, I’m not exactly sure that a GIF-like background for your smartphone is worth all the hype that surrounds this particular feature. However, an exciting new app from UK developer Jack Hunter, plans to make live wallpapers a thing of the past. Hunter’s app will actually make your wallpaper come alive, hence the name of the app: Alive Wallpapers.
According to its developer, Alive Wallpaper is the first app that allows you to run video backgrounds behind your homescreen icons. While there have been other apps who imitated this [...]
Even though the U.S. launch has been fumbled by carriers and Samsung so far, the Galaxy S3 is rolling out in more and more markets as we speak and the South Korean Android maker is trying to make the most of its 2012 Android flagship handset.
Pocket-lint reports that Samsung is especially interested in accommodating the needs of current iPhone owners who may consider switching to Android, or more specifically, to a brand new Galaxy S3.
One of the obstacles smartphone fans can encounter when deciding to move from one mobile platform to another is the difficult process of accessing their digital content purchased on the old platform and [...]
What’s this? Windows XP on your Android device?
Well, not quite, it’s XP Mod Launcher. A team of developers called team.fluxion have taken upon themselves the very complex challenge of making Android look exactly like Windows XP. So, in effect, it’s a mod, or a more advanced launcher for your phone or tablet, that replicates the XP experience down to the smallest detail.
Users can go and explore through folders by using the appropriate (Android) apps. You can even copy, cut and paste stuff on it, much like you would in a real XP environment. Of course, the XP mod for Android mostly concerns the interface, as the back-end stuff is still handled [...]
