A new version of WordPress for Android has been released on Google Play, bringing several tweaks, improvements, and bug fixes to the mobile blogging app. WordPress is the most widely used blogging platform in the world (WP powers Android Authority too), so we’re sure the new update will please a lot of people, from high profile journalists to blogging moms.
WordPress for Android v. 2.1 comes with an autosave timer, so you can edit posts on the go and know that your work is safe. The autosave feature will spare you from the agony of having to rewrite a post if the app somehow freezes or closes mid-writing. Posts will be autosaved by default every 60 [...]
It’s amazing what one huge hit can do for the fortunes of a company. Rovio, the Finnish game developer behind the Angry Birds series, has reported revenues of $106.3 million in 2011, an amazing 963% of the revenue posted in the previous year. Interestingly, Rovio says that 30% of its total revenues came from its ever-expanding consumer products line, which includes anything from clothes and toys, to candy and other merchandise.
By the end of 2011, the company has clocked 648 million total downloads across its game lineup, an impressive figure that has grew since then to reach 1 billion! Rovio announced yesterday that their Angry Birds franchise reached the staggering 1 [...]
If you like to dork out, you know that science isn’t just limited to physics or chemistry. With several other branches, science attempts to explain our world and show us how things work. Science wasn’t just that subject you had to struggle through in school–it’s something all around us. If you’re the type of mind who wants to absorb more information about things smaller than the human eye can see or about the galaxy that’s far beyond the reach of our telescopes, you’ll be thrilled to find the Google Play Store stocked full of apps for you. There are thousands of science facts for you to learn and more than you can share with your [...]
Apps, apps, and more apps! It takes more than just a fancy device sporting an incredible HD display, a great camera, and amazing processing capabilities to make a phone truly “smart”. Honestly, it’s all about the apps. An “app market” is a one-stop shop for getting games and other Internet applications such as Google+, Angry Birds, and more. It’s easy to say that without app markets, your smartphone might as well just be called a dumbphone. Here’s the rub: The Android Market (Google Play) entered the game after Apple did, and the Windows App Market was not even released until one year after Google broke ground. We [...]
Technically, the brain isn’t a muscle, but if you don’t use it, your brain gradually turns to mush. It starts with your swearing that you know a word or a name and that it’s at the tip of your tongue. Over the years, you start forgetting things and the rest is pretty depressing. Though retaining a sharp mind and a keen brain is partly because of our diet, engaging our brains in regular mental exercise helps, as well. We may not quite be in our old age, but there’s no harm in starting as early as now. We’ve put together a list of 10 brain exercisers and memory games to keep you on your toes and to make sure that your brain won’t get [...]
So much for the Flipboard app exclusivity on the Samsung Galaxy S3. Barely a week after the big announcement, one member of XDA-developers forum that goes by the nickname Valcho, has managed to extract the APK file of the social news magazine app out from the Samsung Galaxy S3 – making it available to install on other Android devices several weeks before its official outing.
Since the particular APK was probably made specifically to run on the Samsung Galaxy S3, we can expect that the app itself wont run perfectly. From what we can see from the feedback so far, it appears Flipboard works great on many Android phones and tablets, with the widget functioning well, [...]
Apps people, apps! What good are our tablets, smartphones or phablets with massively powerful multi-core processing under the hood if they don’t have apps that can push the hardware to its limits? That’s possibly the thinking behind Samsung’s Smart App Challenge 2012, a global competition that the Korean company hopes will help boost the number of proprietary apps for their Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Note. Sammy has divided the contest into two categories – “Samsung Apps Super Apps” and “Best S Pen Apps” – and will hand out $4.08 million in prize money to 80 winners. That’s a lot of moolah, folks. And Samsung, that’s a terrible name for a contest, just [...]
Gone are the days when a cloud used to be just something you’d gaze up at the sky to see, something that signaled a sunny day or heavy rain. Now, in the 21st century, the cloud has taken on a whole new meaning, and tech companies such as Google, Apple, Samsung, and LG, to name a few, have dished out their own offerings of cloud storage services to appease our growing need to have access to our files anywhere and anytime.
Apps are also gaining just as much headway in the cloud storage department, with apps like ZeroPC Cloud Navigator, Dropbox, Lightbox, CloudMagic, and Best Buy’s Music Cloud, among others. Not one to be left behind, the new MegaCloud app, which has been [...]
The advent of the smartphone and the emergence and increasing popularity of tablets has changed the way people communicate. Voice-calling has almost taken a backseat, with a lot of users primarily using their handhelds for internet browsing, email, and some, even for writing complete documents, spreadsheets, etc.
Capacitive touchscreen technology and the increasing size of smartphone screens has made it easier for users to type long messages, emails, and notes on a full QWERTY virtual keyboard. Remember the time when typing a “C” required you to tap the 2 key on the phone number pad three times, in quick succession?
Unfortunately, for [...]
