Proxy + Privacy Browser for Anonymous Surfing of Blocked Websites on Android

by: Paul NuñalMarch 26, 2012

The Web is a fun place to learn new information, socialize, interact, and play games to kill the time. However, there are certain Internet areas that are limited to access, or blocked by either a corporate firewall or banned country-wide.

An interesting Android app called Proxy + Privacy Browser, developed by Smartwebs Innovations, lets you access banned websites all in the comfort of your mobile smartphone. Virtually any site can be unblocked, including many social networking sites, web hosting services, blogging platforms, entertainment sites, and news channels, just to name a few.

Apart from giving you an all-access pass to your favorite sites, the [...]

SMS Popup App: Reading SMS Without Leaving Currently Open Apps

by: Carl ParkerMarch 23, 2012

Don’t you just hate being in the middle of something and getting interrupted? You can be in the zone, playing your favorite game or watching a movie, when suddenly you get the notification that you’ve got a new message.

And, if it’s a message you’ve been waiting for, you’ll need to leave whatever app you’ve currently got open, to read the message and reply to it through your inbox. From there, it’s back to the app you had been on until the next message arrives. Rinse, repeat.

Thankfully, there’s SMS Popup, making the problem of interruption non-existent. SMS Popup allows you to quickly read and reply to SMS [...]

Quick review: Angry Birds Space, the best in the series

by: SamMarch 22, 2012

The Angry Birds are back, and so are their enemies, the green pigs! The birds have taken flight into outer space, but that still isn’t enough to avoid the pigs, who use spaceships to steal the Angry Bird’s eggs. You know the drill by now. It’s time to deal some payback, but with astrophysics!

I’ve been playing Angry Birds Space for about an hour now, and I am thoroughly impressed. In fact I think this is the best version of Angry Birds that Rovio has ever released.

What’s New?

As you’ll soon see if you give ABS a try, the physics of the game have been entirely done over. There are two types of “space”, best [...]

Unofficial VLC Media Player app: A taste of the consummate media player for Android

by: Ken EastMarch 19, 2012

There are numerous media formats. It’s a great thing if your media player supports all of those formats. But, most of the time it’s not the case, especially if you are using your Android device. You can convert (transcode) your files using a converter, but that would mean extra steps.  Besides, transcoding can affect the quality of the files.

That’s why it’s really cool to have VLC because it can read and play almost every existing media format. Now, it’s also already available for your Android device.  Aside from its famous read-all-format feature, there are also some new features added to this app just for you to enjoy it more in your [...]
