Android is Dan's last thought before she closes her eyes at night and her first thought upon waking up in the morning. And, between waking up and sleeping, Android is still in her thoughts. That's how hooked she has become to Android ever since she started covering Android news and writing Android app reviews.

Daily Yoga: For beginners and pros alike

by: Dan EvansNovember 19, 2012

There is no shortage of yoga apps on the Google Play Store. Some of them are basically collections of the various poses of yoga, while others go the extra mile and demonstrate how yoga is properly done with animated images or videos. Unfortunately, some of these apps still make the yoga poses too complicated and some beginners might be demotivated to learn.

Sony Xperia J full review [video]

by: Dan EvansNovember 14, 2012

When people think of entry-level phones, a sleek design isn’t exactly the first thing that comes to mind. The Xperia J, however, is here to change the way we perceive entry-level phones.

Sony’s latest entry-level phone offering gives you a sleek design, a 5 MP rear camera, smart illuminations for your notifications, and — the best part of all — long battery life.

There’s a lot more than what meets the eye for this attractive phone, however. Keep on reading as we examine the Sony Xperia J in more detail, or jump right away to our video review.

LG Optimus G review [video]

by: Dan EvansOctober 24, 2012

Just because all you’ve been hearing and reading about is Samsung this, HTC that, Asus this, Google that, it doesn’t mean they’re the only players on the field. LG certainly hasn’t bowed out of the game and this time, it’s giving people something to look forward to.

If you’re dying for a large screen with great colors but something that not everyone else has, the LG Optimus G might just fit your needs. After playing around with a test unit of the Korean variant (F180K) of the Optimus G, we realized that this, so far, is the best phone that LG has ever produced. We found the hardware and display to be superb (with personal [...]

SUMIONI Demon Arts THD: Fighting enemies with ink and brush

by: Dan EvansOctober 16, 2012

When we hear the words “Art Attack” we don’t really think of it literally. Well, you’ll need to hold on to your ink and brushes because SUMIONI Demon Arts THD takes art to a whole other level.

A long time ago in Japan, a game of politics led to the exile of an Inkmaster and the thinning of the wall between this world and that of darkness. The Inkmaster, desperate to save the capital, gives up his life to summon a powerful demon. Unfortunately, the demon named Agura is less than interested, but with the Firebird and the Lion Inkgods by his side, he’ll have no other choice but to carry out the Inkmaster’s [...]

iGallery: Enjoying the iPhone’s Photos app on Android

by: Dan EvansOctober 3, 2012

It wasn’t all that long ago that we took a look at a launcher that turned your Android tablet’s UI into a dead ringer for iOS. Some people find iOS attractive and clean while others may beg to differ. If you’re one of those people who admire Apple’s software then you can appreciate the neatness of iOS’s Photo app interface.

If you want to admire that neat UI and functionality on your Android device, then this app by XDA Developers member mehul_crazybound is definitely for you. Introducing iGallery, a photo app that brings the neatness of the iOS Photo app on your Android device and might make a good alternative to your stock gallery [...]

AireTalk: Free voice and video calls, SMS, and file sharing

by: Dan EvansSeptember 28, 2012

Keeping in touch with friends through your mobile phone is great, but it’s also rather costly. Even if you’re on a postpaid plan, constantly communicating with someone can lead to a painful bill at the end of the month.

You might like: What is SMS?

Thanks to smartphones, however, we can opt to use services such as Skype to call the ones that matter to us via the Internet. We can even go on Video Call if we really want to see our friend’s face. Skype, however, is rather limited in the ways we can communicate with our friends. PingShow has developed an app that goes beyond what Skype offers you.

AireTalk may be packed with the same [...]

Could You Survive: Zombies?

by: Dan EvansSeptember 28, 2012

I must have been about 10 years old when I saw the classic “Night of the Living Dead” by George A. Romero. Little did I know that that was the start of my love affair with zombies. Those shambling, rotting but deadly corpses certainly haven’t gone of out style and they’ve been reinvented so many times that people just can’t take them seriously anymore.

There are the scarier types, of course, the ones that run instead of slowly walk towards you, and then there are the hilarious vegetarian zombies from terrible movies (Day of the Dead, anyone?). Max Brooks certainly reignited the fear that the dead horde can bring with his Zombie Survival [...]

Telly: Sharing your life in video to social networks

by: Dan EvansSeptember 27, 2012

Though a picture can speak a thousand words, there’s nothing quite like taking a video. Capturing a picture is one thing, but a video can tell viewers a whole lot more, not to mention really immerse them in the memory. Social media has expanded way beyond just telling people what you’re doing or thinking of in 140 characters or less and taking pictures of where you are and what you’re eating and throwing a filter on it for a chic look. YouTube allowed people to create video blogs (vlogs) so that they could connect better, and services like Keek let users take a 36-second video of whatever they wanted to share.

There’s another way of keeping in [...]

Style Jukebox: Cloud-driven music syncing convenience

by: Dan EvansSeptember 27, 2012

Having a mobile device means that you can take your work with you when you step out of the house, read your latest RSS feeds when you’re on vacation, and stay connected to the music you like. Unfortunately, unless you’re very religious in syncing music between devices, chances are you’ll forget a song at home and your playlist just won’t be complete without it. You might not be able to enjoy your newest music find when you’ve left it on your computer and you completely forgot to load it up on your phone.

Imagine that scenario happening when you just have one mobile device. But, chances are, you don’t have just one gadget that you [...]

MyScript Calculator: Handwriting recognition for math computations

by: Dan EvansSeptember 27, 2012

One of the things I hated the most about statistics was not the fact that I was working with numbers but that I had to deal with long and tedious equations. It’s one thing to write the equation out on paper but a completely different thing to slowly work your way through solving it. Scientific calculators are certainly handy in tackling them, but punching in numbers can be tiring. Wouldn’t it be great if you could instantly solve your handwritten equations?

MyScript Calculator is perfect for the person who wants to manually work on math without having to actually manually solve it. Write a number on the screen with your fingertip and MyScript [...]
