Best Android apps for poets and poetry lovers

by: GeneApril 20, 2012

“Yet if hope has flown away, in a night, or in a day. In a vision, or in none, is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream.”

Today’s new generation of poets have adapted the best of what technology has to offer in their work. Whether it’s the latest Android smartphone or tablet, coupled with the best apps in Android’s infantry, [...]

Android Apps that will turn your Android into a TV

by: GeneApril 9, 2012

Television – you either love it or hate it. Or love-hate it? Anyway, we all have a deep, if sometimes ambivalent relationship with our TV sets. We use TV to relax, to get informed, to stay in touch, to learn things, to lose time, to forget about problems, and the list can go on and on. It’s no wonder that many have tried (and mostly failed) to offer a truly portable TV-watching device.

And then the smartphone came along, bringing the brains of silicon and the looks of hi-res screens to the mainstream consumer. The increasingly-large smartphones these days can double as TVs without problem, provided you have the right apps. So, for all of you TV maniacs, we [...]

Best Android apps for coffee lovers

by: GeneApril 3, 2012

It’s a lazy Sunday morning. Or just another manic Monday? Either way, thanks to our friendly cup of coffee here, we are still able to write amazing Android stuff for you, day in, day out.

Coffee is probably the next best thing after ice cream and chocolate, at least for us. So it’s mind-boggling to know that it was first discovered by a goat. Yeah, the one with the beard and the horns. In the 9th century, a young boy named Kaldi noticed that his goat acted weird when eating some specific cherries. Turns out, the goat ate coffee cherries. The rest, as they say, is history.

We can’t probably recall the numerous times coffee has helped us pull [...]

by: GeneMarch 20, 2012


You love movies. Moreover, you are also an obsessive-compulsive collector of videos. Just about any category, from action movies to chick flicks, you are crazy about them.
