How To Get Your Android App Fix From Anywhere In The World

by: Aerol BibatJanuary 13, 2012
One of the Android operating system's main draws is its enormous library of applications. This can range from simple calculators to high-performing games. The only problem with this is that Google is dead-set on making sure users only get to use them in particular countries – making some apps available only to specific locations.

Techradar Does A Hands-on Report On The Grid 10

by: Aerol BibatSeptember 19, 2011

Fusion Garage’s latest release, the Grid 10 is an Android tablet is a rather unique Android tablet. This is mostly because it technically isn’t an Android tablet. Using a new operating system called Grid OS, which is based on the Android kernel, its main feature is that its basic operations are still Android-based, but with a different graphical user interface. This lets it run Android apps while delivering a completely different user experience.

The Grid 10 has some fairly basic specs for a 10.1-inch tablet. Running on an Nvidia Tegra 2 chip backed by 512MB of memory, it only has one 1.3MP front-facing camera and only 16GB storage. The price is another matter. [...]

Honeybar App Helps Hide Notification Tabs On Honeycomb Tablets

by: Aerol BibatSeptember 14, 2011

Honeycomb tablets are becoming a more popular option nowadays. This is because of the fact that the new Android version is optimized for use on tablets. However, it isn’t exactly perfect. One of its failures is that it doesn’t have a true fullscreen option. Whenever you’re watching YouTube videos, looking at images in the gallery, or even playing games, the navigation bar is always present. This can get irritating for many users.

Here’s a solution for that. HoneyBar is a simple way to temporarily hide the navbar on a Honeycomb tablet. The main requirement is that the tablet be rooted.

Upon installation, HoneyBar will launch itself and [...]

PowerDVD Mobile Lets You Stream On Your Local Network

by: Aerol BibatSeptember 14, 2011

Streaming media is a great way to use your tablet. Since it’s a portable device, a tablet can be carried around the home with ease, while leaving all of those media files in your main computer.

One of the several apps to let you do this is the new PowerDVD Mobile software. Designed for Honeycomb tablets, this app finds your video, music and photos on your PC and helps stream it over your local network. The main limitation to the streaming is that streaming remotely is not available yet.

To get this app up and running, you will need to have PowerDVD Ultra 11 installed on your PC and the PowerDVD Mobile app on your tablet. It doesn’t work on Android [...]

Android Apps Outselling Apple Apps

by: Aerol BibatSeptember 12, 2011

Here’s some more good news for Android fans. Ovum, a telecoms analyst group, projects that over 18 billion applications will be downloaded this year. Of these 18 billion, only 6 billion will be for the Apple OS. A sizable number, but the remaining 12 billion is being shared between its rivals. The lion’s share of this bounty is being gobbled up by the other dominant OS force in the app market: Google’s Android.

This also means that despite the large application library available to them in the iOS platform, most smartphone users are abandoning the iTunes apps store in large numbers. This supports Ovum’s claims that Android [...]

Samsung Announces An Android Phone/Tablet Hybrid

by: Aerol BibatSeptember 12, 2011

Samsung’s been busy this week. Everyone knew about the release of the long-awaited Galaxy S II smartphone for the US market. The big surprise of this week was something else: an Android smartphone/tablet with a stylus called the Galaxy Note.

Looking at it, the device’s big attraction for consumers is the large 5.3-inch HD display. Using Samsung’s Super AMOLED technology and having a 1280 x 800 resolution, it’s pretty impressive. But it does make the phone a bit huge – which sets it beyond the normal smartphone category.

Which is correct since Samsung is classifying the Galaxy Note as a “Smart Mobile Device” with [...]

Conceptual Ice Cream Sandwich Theme For Your Android Installation

by: Aerol BibatSeptember 9, 2011

The next iteration of the Android operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich, is still in development, but that doesn’t mean that there’s no anticipation for the product. The prospective design shifts and operational improvements should be a boon for any Android user.

Still, the waiting can make a few people impatient. This is why some enterprising hacker has cooked up their own conceptual theme for it. @AndroidAtNight on Twitter has put in a lot of effort in designing this amazing homescreen based on what he feels what Ice Cream Sandwich would look like.

Taking a look at it, you have to admit that it looks pretty nice. Called the Nite UI, the theme takes a lot of [...]

Android’s Drive To Dominance Unstoppable

by: Aerol BibatSeptember 9, 2011

Android is on the warpath and it looks they’re getting a bit unstoppable. Last Monday revealed that Google managed to corner 47.1 percent of the UK smartphone market in August. This is more than double of 22.9 percent this time last year. This joins the US stats released last month that placed Android at 52 percent in the second quarter of 2011. This definitely shows that Google’s operating system has got the chops to hold its own.

Android’s rapid growth can be contrasted with the weak performance of the iOS, which is down 20.8 percent from 28 percent in 2010. This can be blamed on the fact that no iPhone has been released recently. Apple’s [...]
