Imagine a world where everyone looks almost the same and wears the same style of clothes (with the same colors). That is definitely a world so bland, completely bummer, and entirely fun-free. Would you survive a day in that kind of world? I know I won’t. I will miss out on a lot of fun.
There’s fun in differentiating oneself and in asserting individuality in a world of uniformity. Even in the world of smartphones and tablets. Towards that end, DecalGirl has been, for a long time, in the business of making smartphone and tablet skins that give electronic devices a character of their own. The Decal Girl skins practically make every Android device dress up in many [...]
Our phones are usually with us when we go out – however, there are sometimes when we can’t immediately access out phones. It may be because we left it behind somewhere or we’re currently preoccupied.
This doesn’t mean that we should just leave people hanging when they message us. It maybe urgent or something similar. An immediate reply may be needed – and people can sometimes get angry if you don’t answer them ASAP. This is why this new app should be useful to anyone. Txt Msg Away Message is a simple app that can automatically text a reply whenever you’re not available. This app can be used while you’re away or inside a meeting [...]
Taking care of yourself can be a dicey proposition. Accidents can happen and sometimes they can happen when you’re all alone. This is why Nuvel’s vSOS, a digital Life Alert service, is a great way to ensure your continued safety and the safety of those who you consider close to you. Originally only available on the iPhone, Nuvel has branched out and has released an Android version of the app – which can alert emergency response teams wherever you are in the US, and even in some other parts of the world.
The app works on two levels. First, owners can add their own personal medical information to the app – disabilities and allergies are some [...]
The summer film Cowboys & Aliens may not have been a blockbuster hit, but you have to admit it had a pretty fun and awesome concept to it: aliens and cowboys going up head-to-head against each other. Alien invading is pretty much one of the oldest tropes in the SF genre, but putting it in the old west is a pretty unique twist. So if you enjoyed the movie, you may be willing to try out Gameloft’s Android app adaptation to it.
The Cowboys & Aliens app centers around the title character of Zeke kicking alien butt. It’s done in a rather unique style for Gameloft – instead of the usual 3D adventure, you get a traditional 2D side-scroller. The [...]
We’ve already talked about Samsung’s legal troubles before. But it seems the Korean company has managed to get a little break from its problems with Apple over the legal wrangling about the Galaxy Tab 10.1. A German court has lifted a few of the restrictions on sales of the tablet in the European Union.
As a brief refresher on the issue, here’s what happened so far: Apple filed a suit against Samsung because supposedly the Korean company’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 was just a cheap knock off the iPad 2. At the beginning of the case though, a German court let Apple have a preliminary injunction.
This was last week and it has been a very painful week [...]
Japanese mobile carrier SoftBank has a couple of handsets that are probably going to be the envy of phone users outside of Japan.
First of all, is their new Yahoo! Phone. It may be a surprise for Western users, but Yahoo! is still a powerful force in Japan. It’s actually the country’s biggest website and this carries a lot of weight. The fact that Softbank is also Yahoo Japan’s biggest shareholder is also a contributing factor to the handset’s release
So what does it offer? It’s actually a version of the Aquos Phone from Sharp and shares many of the same features. Running on Android 2.3, it has a 4-inch LCD with QHD resolution, an 8MP CMOS [...]
Cheap Android tablets are what we expect from Chinese manufacturers. After all, it’s a boom market and with the ease of making a tablet, it should be expected. However, it maybe easy to make a tablet, but its hard to make a good one. That’s why the LY-F526 from Shenzhen Lingyunxianfeng is actually a bit of a surprise. This is because from its specs it actually looks to be a good tablet for under $200.
Packing a 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 dual core processor, it’s not exactly in the Tegra 2 territory of the more high-end stuff. However, its backed by PowerVR graphics, 1080p HD video playback support, 512MB of RAM, and your choice of 4GB and 16GB of storage. [...]
It’s football season once again! Although a few people may dislike the sport, it’s still no doubt one of the more popular sports in America. So what does this have to do with Android?
Well, this season has a few highlights in the technology department, but the main one is the recent release by DirecTV of their NFL Sunday Ticket application to a whole set of Android devices. This includes the Motorola Xoom and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab, along with Motorola’s Android phones. The press release says one thing though, while the Android Market entry says another – it seems that the app is compatible with more than those two. They include the Kyocera Echo and [...]
If you were part of the US Army, you probably banked with the Navy Federal Credit Union, it being one of the country’s largest credit unions and which happens to service the entire Department of Defense and their civilian dependents. That’s a lot of people serviced right there.
Banking’s always been a bit of a chore, so a lot of banks and credit unions have been putting out apps to make financial dealing not so onerous. And the NFCU is not an exception as the credit union just put up their app in the Android Market.
The mobile banking app does all that you expect out of a mobile banking service. Members can immediately check their account [...]
Android malware is on the rise and it would be best to take a look at your security measures. Android tablets are similar enough to desktops and laptops that a normal antivirus designed for the Android platform should be enough. But how about phones? There are quite a few pieces of security software already available on the market for your phone, but having another one made available is great at expanding a person’s choice.
Symantec has a previously had Norton Mobile Security as a beta – but it seems that the company is satisfied enough with it that they’re finally rolling out the final version. Coming in two setting, free and for-pay, Norton Mobile Security [...]
