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.

OfficeDrop: Capturing documents, scanning PDF files, and sharing them in the cloud

by: Dan EvansJuly 16, 2012

Before cloud technology and online collaboration were possible, file sharing and collaborating were a nightmare. Sure, you could email files to your group mates or colleagues, but if you didn’t have a streamlined system for organizing your files, you’d soon discover a quickly growing mess of files. You should have seen my thesis computer folder.

The days before Google Docs and Dropbox were indeed dark, hilarious, and cluttered days. Syncing important files across computers is now possible and you don’t even have to bring a USB stick with you when you have a presentation. Technology, however, has been continuously pushing the envelope and today we’ll be taking a look at [...]

Best movie game apps for Android

by: Dan EvansJuly 11, 2012

Some people are just really enthusiastic about showing their burning passion for a certain cartoon, anime, TV series, or movie.

There’s no limit to how you can express your love. If you’re a huge fan of something but you don’t quite have the drive to purchase every bit of official and unofficial merchandise you can get your hands on and you don’t have the talent to contribute fan-made things, don’t despair.

by: Dan EvansJuly 11, 2012

It’s easy to get carried away with our mobile devices. There are a number of things that can just take up countless hours of your time.

Candy Island Android game: Saving the island from running out of candy

by: Dan EvansJuly 10, 2012

As you can tell from its name, Candy Island – The Sweet Shop will certainly bring you sweet treats when you play it on your Android device.

Best phrasebook apps for Android

by: Dan EvansJuly 3, 2012

A few days ago, we put together an app list for tourists and travelers to help them on their trips abroad, whether for business or leisure. You might have equipped yourself with all the right apps to aid you on your trip, from booking your hotel to getting around cities, but are you completely ready? Aren’t you forgetting something?

If you’re traveling to a country that is predominantly English-speaking, there’s no problem there, but if you’re off to a country that doesn’t have English as its first language, then you might want to consider gearing up with phrasebooks.

Of course, it would always be better if you’ve had some [...]

Best aquarium and fish live wallpapers for Android

by: Dan EvansJune 29, 2012

There’s just something so calming about watching fish swim. Perhaps it’s the way they seem to be in no real hurry. Regardless, it cannot be denied that watching fish swim around in an aquarium is just so relaxing. Managing a real aquarium, however, can take a lot of work and money, so why not get an aquarium on your Android device? Live wallpapers are snazzy inventions, allowing you to interact with your screen in more ways than the usual navigation. Unfortunately, live wallpapers can also suck your device’s battery dry.

If you’re willing to sacrifice your Android device’s battery for the peace that fish swimming around on your screen can [...]
