9 spooktacular Android apps for Halloween 2012

by: Carl ParkerOctober 27, 2012

Halloween is that one day in the whole year when people get to dress up in the skins of creepy crawlies and monsters that hide in dark places to haunt parties and peoples’ doorsteps for sweets. Halloween isn’t just about the costume, of course. It’s also about that distinct feeling that horror is in the air. With technology present in almost every aspect of our lives, is there still room for that feeling of being “not alone in a room”?

Mobile devices can still factor into Halloween, of course. There are apps on the Google Play Store that can help you creep up the mood, letting you share ghost stories with friends, and even do a bit of [...]

7 sizzling new Android apps of the week (October 26 issue)

by: Carl ParkerOctober 26, 2012

You just have to love app developers. They’re always hard at work breathing life to their ideas, getting them out of their heads, and onto our mobile devices.

Thanks to these little idea seeds, our lives are much easier. We don’t need to waste time waffling over getting this or that, or tossing and turning all night in bed, waiting for sleep to claim us. Apps also let us get ahead of our business competitors and keep us reminded of the things we need to do.

This week, we took a look at the menu in the Google Play Store kitchen and handpicked seven of the most interesting, most useful, or most promising new Android apps fresh out of the [...]

AutomateIt: Automating actions according to rules and triggers

by: Carl ParkerOctober 26, 2012

Most of us depend on our smartphones for many of our day-to-day activities. We depend on our smartphones to wake us up or remind us of our tasks. We set them to silent mode when in a meeting or watching a movie. When boarding an airplane, we change them to flight-mode as instructed. Our smartphones are like assistants in all that we do.

Wouldn’t it be nice if our smartphones could remind us, send messages, turn on/off, or even change profiles and settings automatically? Won’t it be nice to be able to program your phone to do something at a set time so you can go on with what you’re doing?

AutomateIt!, an app developed by SmarterApps Ltd, can [...]

Talk2Phone Desktop SMS: SMS, call notifications, and more from phone to Google Talk

by: Carl ParkerOctober 25, 2012

Imagine waking up twenty minutes before your shift and rushing to work after chugging some milk and cereal. In your hurry you end up stuffing your things inside your bag before trying to catch the next trip to your workplace.

Unless you have your phone around your neck or if you’re someone tied to Facebook or Twitter, you won’t really remember checking your phone especially when you have three pages worth of e-mails to reply to. You’ll find out later that you’ve had around ten missed calls and twenty-five messages from your boss, colleagues, partner, mother, and your landlord.

All those messages may have saved you from booking a meeting [...]

Diskobolos: Survival game against bionic bugs

by: Carl ParkerOctober 25, 2012

Hello 80’s and 90’s kids! Let’s take a trip down to memory lane with an interestingly addictive game called Diskobolos, brought to us by Conquering Bytes. At first glance, you’d think that the game’s going to be like most of those shooting ping-pong type ones that loses its luster faster than you can finish your tea. Diskobolos is anything but that. It seems simple but is fairly challenging. The arena, bionic bugs, and level of difficulty change as you play longer.

Diskobolos is a survival game that would have made Charles Darwin proud. Instead of conquering levels, the aim of the game is to beat The List and make it to the top. [...]

Janetter: New full-featured Twitter client with multi-account support

by: Carl ParkerOctober 18, 2012

Twitter is one of the most famous social networking and microblogging services in the world. Even though Twitter has its own official Android app, third-party developers have been making client apps for Twitter. Since such apps apps are usually limited, developers tend to add extra and interesting features to the apps. For example, some Twitter clients for Android allow sorting followers, adding filters, creating groups, or even to silencing (muting) some users without blocking or unfollowing them.

Recently, a newcomer to the Twitter client apps development scene has appeared in the form of Janetter, created by Jane, Inc. It also has versions for Windows and [...]

FaceDropt: Auto-uploading photos to Facebook

by: Carl ParkerOctober 18, 2012

Facebook is undoubtedly one of the most popular social networking sites. People post status updates, upload media, and share photos every second. It’s no small wonder that a lot of Android app developers are creating apps geared towards Facebook.

Talking about uploading photos, Twitter has a lot of third-party apps that allow you to attach photos to your tweets. However, these third-party apps have their own sites to upload your images to, such as Twitpic, TweetPhoto, Pikchur, Yfrog or Lockerz.

In contrast, Facebook has similar third-party apps, although most of those apps tend to create new albums on your Facebook profile and then upload the images into [...]
