by: Danic FilipMarch 22, 2012

If you enjoy playing tower defense games like Defense of the Ancients, you’ll find great joy in Defense Zone HD, a newly launched Android game that provides many hours of action-packed gameplay. Like any tower defense game, Defense Zone puts you into the role of a master strategist that must decide what defenses to build and where to concentrate firepower. DZHD is powered by the popular Unity 3D game engine, so you can expect some good graphics and visual effects. You can buy it on the Google Play store or download the Lite version from the same source.

Defense Zone HD Plot

Maxthon Android web browser: a solid and worthy alternative browser

by: Carl ParkerMarch 22, 2012

Whoever said that fast and efficient web browsing had to be limited to your computer? Though smartphones these days have been continuously getting smarter, a lot of people believe that the ultimate web browsing experience just cannot be found on mobile phones.

Maxthon Android Web Browser is here to debunk that theory. This browser claims itself to be the world’s “fastest and smartest Android browser” and looking at what features it packs, we’re pretty much convinced.

Maxthon Android Web Browser certainly packs functions that every web surfer absolutely must have. Tabbed browsing and lightning fast web surfing are just the tip of the [...]

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 [...]

by: Paul NuñalMarch 21, 2012

Facebook has become the social networking hub of many users these days and since its mainstream launch way back in 2006–2007, many users have already considered it a place to call online home. Today, Facebook hosts about 600 million active accounts ranging from mid-teen users to adults.

by: Ankit BanerjeeMarch 19, 2012

 

As more and more people realize that they want tablets but just can’t afford to shell out hundreds of dollars for one, consumers are turning to more economical solutions to fulfill their tablet lust.

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 [...]

Jawbone ERA: Hands-on review

by: Brandon SobottaMarch 19, 2012

 

When the Jawbone ERA arrived at my doorstep, it caught me completely off guard: I completely forgot it was heading my way for a review. But after spending some time with it, I can assure you, I will not forget the ERA anytime soon. I’ve never really saw myself as one to use a Bluetooth ear piece, because I was always under the impression that they were uncomfortable and clumsy. Is this the case with the Jawbone ERA?

Enjoying the ICS Camera on a non-ICS phone

by: Carl ParkerMarch 19, 2012

Whether you’ve given in to the Ice Cream Sandwich craze, or you’ve been trying to resist it, you can’t deny the temptation. When Ice Cream Sandwich arrived on phones, it brought more with it than just a sleek new look.

It also packed a stock camera app that was equipped with a user-friendly interface and functions that got everyone crazy over their cameras. With built-in file sharing options,  zero shutter lag,  tap-to-focus, integrated support for 180 degree panoramic shots, and face detection to name a few, shutterbugs loved their phones more than ever.

Thanks to Moblynx, even users of Froyo and Gingerbread will get to experience what [...]

Multilingual translations on Android with Babylon Translator app

by: Carl ParkerMarch 18, 2012

While being multilingual has its perks, you can’t deny having moments when memory fails and you just can’t remember the meaning of a certain word. Whether you’re reading an e-mail, a news article, or even a book, not knowing what a certain word means can drive anyone crazy.

Sure, you may have your language dictionary somewhere in your room, but what if you’re out of the house and you really need that translation on the double?

Thankfully, there’s Babylon Translator. Babylon, the world’s leading provider of dictionary and translation software, has long been a staple for multilingual individuals for their computers but only [...]
