MessagEase Keyboard: Optimized keyboard layout for faster typing

by: Ken EastApril 13, 2012

Do you have very big fingers? Many users have problems typing on their mobile phones because they have big fingers, which in turn causes inaccurate typing because the letters on the onscreen keyboard are so small.

Because of this, many users have a hard time in composing messages and consume a significant amount of time just to type several words. To solve this problem there is now a new type of onscreen keyboard called MessagEase Keyboard which is developed to optimize the number of words that a person can type. The keys of the keyboard are larger than that of a usual QWERTY keyboard, which makes typing easier.

As described by its developers, MessagEase is a [...]

by: Mike AndriciApril 11, 2012

Handcent SMS 4.0: Sending text messages by hand, the easy way

by: Ken EastApril 10, 2012

Some people don’t really mind the stock messaging app on their phone and would prefer it as it is.  But, of course, some want a messaging app that can do more than what stock has to offer. If you are one of the latter, I bet that you would love to have Handcent SMS. The app has several features like scheduling a text message, blacklisting annoying contacts, voice input/output, and more.

WO Mic: Using your Android phone as a virtual mic for your desktop

by: Ken EastApril 9, 2012

Our Android phones and tablets can perform numerous functions besides mere phone calls, SMS texting, and web browsing, but often take these things for granted because most of the time we use it for playing games, watching videos and using other apps. In turn, we don’t get to know some of the things that our Android devices can do for us.

For example, maybe you don’t know that you can actually use your device as a backup modem, speaker, and virtual microphone–with the help of an app such as WO Mic, that is.

Why on earth would you make your phone as a microphone if you can just buy a backup mic?  First of all, that’s kind of bulky, and [...]

Smart Statusbar: Accessing the statusbar even from fullscreen apps

by: Carl ParkerApril 9, 2012

While an app’s taking up your whole screen may be useful when you’re watching a movie or playing a game, it can be distracting to not see your statusbar. Every few minutes, you’ll want to pause your movie just to check your statusbar details, whether it’s to check for the time, or how much charge you’ve got left on your battery.

Smart Statusbar, however, removed the hassle of having to exit your full screen application to check your statusbar. Instead, you can check your statusbar while you’re making complete use of your device’s screen. Swipe your finger from the top edge of your tablet to the bottom and you’ll be able [...]

A look at Google Maps 6.5: HD graphics, ICS support, improved navigation, and more

by: Carl ParkerApril 9, 2012

When you need to get somewhere, knowing how to get there is your top priority. But what can you do when that new place your friends want to meet you at isn’t on the map yet? Nowadays, we can no longer rely on physical maps when a new shop and a new business crops up every day. A physical map can get outdated really quickly in this day and age. We can always Google the establishment’s address, but if you’re not familiar with the area it’s in, you’ll still get lost. Thankfully, with how easy it is to be connected, we also have access to Google Maps.

With a slogan like, “whether you need directions to your destination, the closest good [...]
