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 [...]

Charming Your Social Contacts with Charm App for Android

by: Ken EastMarch 17, 2012

With our busy and sometimes very hectic schedules, we often forget to keep in touch with the people who are close or special to us. It’s definitely very frustrating, and to some extent embarrassing, if you miss a very special occasion such as your and your partner’s anniversary. Things like these could result in serious quarrels or could mean the end of a relationship, which of course, you don’t want to happen.

All you need is someone to remind you.  Go ahead, hire a personal assistant.  But, if that’s not feasible, why not give the Charm app a whirl.

Charm, essentially, is a reminder app that does more than just remind you of the [...]

by: Vinny MarinoMarch 16, 2012

Samsung produces the most successful line of Android devices in the world. For their tablets, they have taken a novel approach by creating a variety of choices 7-inch, 8.9-inch, 10.1-inch and, now, 7.7-inch tablet.

X-Link App: Sharing Files Wirelessly Among Multiple Android Devices and PC

by: Ken EastMarch 16, 2012

Sharing files from an Android device to a computer or vice-versa often requires the use of a USB cable.  Though relatively faster, such wired connections are also more cumbersome in comparison to wireless file sharing.

As for wireless file transfers, there’s Bluetooth, which you can use among phones/tablets, and between a phone/tablet and a computer, provided the computer is Bluetooth-enabled.

Here comes another way to share files wirelessly: X-Link, an Android app that lets you share files remotely with other Android devices and even to a computer.

X-Link is a file sharing tool developed by XDA Developer member joschi70. Based on users’ [...]

Lenovo IdeaPad A1 7″ Tablet Review

by: Brandon SobottaMarch 15, 2012
What’s good:

A well-rounded tablet for the price. The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 has everything you could need from a slate, including a decent screen, GPS, Bluetooth, and a front and back facing camera. It’s a fully-functional, ultra-portable, and very affordable tablet.

What’s bad:

The specs leave something to be desired. Almost all of the hardware and software on the tablet is from the top of the line phones of 2010. While, today, the A1 will do almost everything you want it, it’s definitely not future proof.

The short of it:

The Lenovo IdeaPad  A1 is a great entry-level 7″ tablet. Its lightweight, durable, and versatile. While there are other [...]
