When I bought my Xoom 5 months ago, I really wanted to wait for a quad-core tablet, but needed it for school. Since the purchase, I have been really¬†disappointed¬†with the performance of Honeycomb running at stock speeds, and even when overclocked I still wasn’t¬†quite satisfied. Last night I installed Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) on my Xoom, and I have to say I am very impressed. ICS at stock speeds runs amazing, browsing on the web is more impressive on ICS than it ever was on Honeycomb. As you can see on the hands on video below, everything is absolutely buttery…

I am a HUGE fan of word games. So when I found out my next review was going to be a word game that I have never heard of before, I was excited. ¬†Well, the first thought I had was what is Megawords and what¬†separates¬†it from all the other word games out there? Based on¬†MegaWords little corner on the Android Market, it describes itself as “a multiplayer word game that combines the rules of Boggle and Scrabble.” To be honest, when I first read it I was kinda confused, I haven’t played Boggle in years and have no idea what…

The ICQ app strives to merge many of your social networking features, and text messaging into one package. ¬†It seems like a tough goal to meet, and can it live up to its efforts? While it does manage to achieve some of its goals, some of the rest may just be out of reach. Let’s take a look at what it succeeds in, and where it fails. Video The Good – Consolidation I really enjoyed this app for what it was, an app to chat with people and follow feeds. I could talk to people from Google+/talk, Facebook, ICQ, and…

It seems like Motorola has been hard at work addressing the issues that owners of the Droid Bionic have experiencing. In the last few weeks the members of forums such as XDA, and¬†androidforums.com¬†have been playing around with a non-official update that has escaped¬†Motorola/Verizon’s¬†grasp. ¬†The update known as 5.5.886 seems¬†to have addressed some of the bugs, and problems¬†that we outlined a while back. Some of the issues include loss of data connectivity, poor battery life, sluggish camera, and on and on.¬†So far most Bionic owners have noticed such benefits from the update such as better battery life, quicker camera, and better…

It seems to be a common theme of Motorola as of recently, that when a new phone is being launched, leaks of a future phone find their way to the public. It happened when the Bionic was about to be released; the Bionic was pictured with the soon to be released Droid RAZR. Now that the RAZR is about to be released, images of the Droid 4 have been leaked to the good folks over at Droid-Life. The Droid 3 was criticized by enthusiasts for its pentile screen, lack of 4G, locked bootloader, and its “limited” 512MB Ram (1GB seems…

For people of you who are fans of the hardware of Motorola phones, but not such big fans of Motorola’s skinned UI known as Motoblur, we have good news. Yesterday, Kejar31 and Jurmmy16 released the popular Liberty3 ROM for the Droid 3. This ROM gives the user a more ‘vanilla’ Android experience, something many enthusiasts prefer over such skinned interfaces such as Touchwiz, Sense, and the previously mentioned Motoblur. The ROM is by no means in perfect working order, but¬†its amazing how well Liberty3 is running thus far. Some of the bugs popping up for some users have included the…

Quick Note is exactly what you think it would be, which is a little ¬†note app that gives you the ability to put notes, as widgets, to yourself on your User Interface (UI). You can either place a note on your UI, or in the app itself, which is more like a to-do list then sticky notes. When creating your note there are a few options you can adjust, for both the in app experience and for the way the widget is displayed itself. You can chose to customize colors, a few styles, font size, and the alignment. The only…

As a long time user of Fraps on PC, Screencast came as a blessing. Screencast is an app for Android that has the ability to record exactly what is happening on my phones screen, much the same as Fraps can do on my PC. The possibilities of this app are endless, and the developers at Media Solutions make it easy, as long as your device is rooted (which is to be expected). When I opened Screencast, I was first greeted with the need to grant the app Superuser permissions, and after that, the option to either view the tutorial or…
