Netflix, the hugely popular subscription service for watching TV shows and movies, has come a long way since its original release as an Android app back in March 2011. In just over a year, the service has been updated several times and it now offers support for pretty much any device running Android 2.2 and up, while covering 43 countries in addition to the regions it was first made available in.
The latest update to the Netflix for Android official app has just been released, and, while it’s certainly minor compared with most of the updates from the past months, it should bring some notable changes and improvements.
According to the official changelog, Netflix [...]
Staying connected has never been so easy, thanks to the modern-day smartphone, keeping us in touch with our friends even when they are out of reach. With advancements in the field of communications, smartphones have also evolved in how we communicate with other people.
Thanks to VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology, users can now get in touch with the special people in their lives by using the Internet connection on their phones. Since VoIP relies on the Internet, calling someone is relatively free of charge, with the exception of possible charges for using the Internet data connection.

More than half of the world has mobile phones which serve as peoples’ everyday mode of communication with their loved ones, for texts and calls, or even for exchanging flirty messages and heartaches. After a while, that routine gets boring. There are times that not a single text or call arrives on your phone, which results in your being afflicted with boredom. That’s one of the greatest issues of having a phone in your pocket. If you just receive simple texts like “How are you?”, “Hey!”, “Hi”, “What are you doing?” and make replies like “I’m OK,” “Yeah!,” “Hello,” and “I’m fine,” it gets kind of boring, too.
It’s a good thing that one great Android [...]

Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform has been released for more than a year and a half, but it has struggled to become a worthy competitor to Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS. The small number of devices running WP, as well as the relatively poor ecosystem have led to sales of just 2.7 million Windows Phone gadgets in Q1 2012. The mobile operating system powered only 2.6 percent of the smartphones sold worldwide in the first three months of 2012, which is disappointing for a product developed by a company that is so used to dominating markets.
While the poor sales will probably go on for a while, as far as apps go, Microsoft is [...]

Initially called Windows Commander back in 1993, Christian Ghisler’s file management software, now Total Commander, has had an Android version in the works for quite some time. Back in August 2011, the app had its first rc1 (release candidate) version and, ever since then, we’ve been waiting for Total Commander to hit Android Market (now Google Play).
After so much time, it is great to finally welcome Total Commander for Android in the freemium app world, especially considering the fact that initial feedback is great. The app has been put up for download on Google Play a couple of days back, but there are already around 350 user reviews that unanimously praise Total [...]
Updated with workaround for Samsung’s restriction. See below. Thanks, Frank!
While not everyone is enamored with the design of the Samsung Galaxy S3, apparently people don’t mind getting an early taste of the phone’s smart software. It started with Flipboard, a supposedly exclusive social magazine app for the Galaxy S3, which was extracted from the device merely days after its introduction. Then came the wide availability of the Galaxy S3’s ROM, which gave way for even more goodies to come. One of said goodies is Samsung’s answer to Siri, the Samsung S Voice.
The APK for Samsung S Voice was highly sought after, and it did make its way to other Android [...]
