Firefox 14 beta for Android brings new UI, improved performance, and Flash support

by: Bams SadewoMay 17, 2012

Google Chrome may have taken over Mozilla Firefox’s place to become the world’s second most widely used browser, but Firefox, now on the third place, still has approximately 25% of worldwide usage share. With such a huge user base, you’d think that PC Firefox users would love nothing more but to continue to enjoy the Firefox experience on their Android device.

This, unfortunately, hasn’t been the case, as Firefox for Android hasn’t really lived up to its name, mostly due to its sluggishness – at least in the earlier versions. While performance has improved with each new iteration of the app, what can we expect from the latest version of the mobile [...]

Number of malicious Android apps grows by 2200% year over year

by: Gary SimsMay 16, 2012

You might be asking yourself if you read the headline to this post correctly. A 2200% growth in the number of malicious Android apps, can that be right? Unfortunately it is. According to the Mobile Threat Report Q1 2012 (PDF) released by security company F-Secure, the number of malicious Android application package files (APKs) they received in the first three months of the year grew from 139 in 2011 to 3063 for the same period in 2012. Similarly, in 2011 security researchers discovered 10 new families of Android malware. Move forward twelve months, and that number has grown nearly four-fold with 37 new families and variants discovered in Q1 2012.

So why the growth? For one [...]

Facebook mobile app to get Instagram-like picture treatment

by: Bams SadewoMay 16, 2012

With more and more people accessing the web on their mobile devices, web companies strive create apps that can recreate a full web browsing experience, albeit in a simpler package. A consistent user interface across devices can drive people to use it more, which is vital for companies like Facebook, that increasingly depend on mobile ads.

The latest revision of the Facebook app for Android and iOS, as well as its mobile site, brings an improved design for the posts in news feed. Gone are the days when you had to squint your eyes to figure out the thumbnail pictures in the news feed. The photos in the feed will now show up three times bigger. Aside from that, the [...]

by: SamMay 15, 2012

Other people just don’t like the ‘privacy policy’ in the Google Terms Of Service, which must be agreed upon when you join. Whatever your own thoughts are on the matter, here are the best alternatives to Google Drive as a web storage service.


You knew it would be here. It’s safe to say that with the arrival of Google Drive, Dropbox is feeling threatened to say the least. Here is what the CEO sarcastically tweeted regarding Google’s [...]

Point-and-click adventure game Machinarium now available on Android for just $3.99

by: AdrianMay 14, 2012

Back in the day, indie video games have not been quite that popular on Android, but things started to change not long ago, especially due to initiatives like the Humble Bundle. Android users began to realize that indie does not necessarily mean poor quality or glitchy. So it should come as no surprise that several promising independent games are making their way to Google Play.

Machinarium is the latest indie game to be made available for Android. While its name might not say much to some of you, Machinarium is a pretty successful game for PC, PS3, and the iPad 2. In fact, it has won quite its share of awards back in 2009, when it was, for example, a PC Game of the [...]

Leaked Flipboard app for Android gets OTA update, better performance and stability

by: AdrianMay 14, 2012

Flipboard, probably the most popular news and social aggregation app for iOS, was due to get an Android version for a pretty long time. After what was for many an excruciating wait, the app was announced as available exclusively with the Samsung Galaxy S3 last week. That would’ve meant an additional couple of weeks to see Flipboard’s full Android debut and another few weeks (or even months) to see the app hit other phones or tablets.

Fortunately, Android is by definition an open ecosystem, so the “exclusive” app got leaked just a couple of days after its initial announcement. The APK file was made available by the good guys at XDA-developers for pretty much [...]

Hey, wannabe DJs, goes Android, still US only

by: Bogdan PetrovanMay 12, 2012 (with a lowercase “t”) was founded in early 2011, with the goal of providing a social music service that would emulate the experience of listening to music in a “real setting”. Users can join virtual rooms where they listen to the tunes played by “DJs”, which are other users that take turns at choosing the playlist.

Users get to vote tracks up and down, and if many users “boo” a track, the app skips to the next DJ. While listening to music, users can have a chat, and, whenever a DJ spot is free, they can hop on the stage to prove their mixing mastery.

Music is better with friends is the motto of, a simple, fun idea that [...]
