Now that Facebook is slowly converting profiles into the new Timeline version, a new Android app has made things easier for those who want to change their cover photos. The app, called Facebook Timeline Covers by D33P, is the first 2D-to-3D Facebook photo app. This means that through the app, Facebook Timeline cover photos can be created using the user’s own photos or even the cover arts produced by D33P. “The Facebook Timeline design has already been adopted by users around the world, and the design has the cover photo and the profile picture placed tightly together. This layout has…

I never thought the “Facebook phone” idea will catch on, because I don’t think Facebook is “enough of a service” to warrant making a whole phone around it. Plus, this was most likely a push from Facebook than anything else, which means it didn’t really come into the market in a natural way, and the market rejected it. The “INQ Cloud Q” Facebook phone apparently wasn’t very successful in the market, and neither were some of the Facebook phones of HTC. So this idea is pretty much dead now. Plus, HTC needs to do a whole lot more if they…

Many people just love the way their list of contacts is brightly lit with photos from their contacts’ Facebook accounts. If you have hundreds of contacts on your list, seeing photos of your contacts can actually help you find contact information more easily. Synchronization has always been an integral part of Android. From calendar, contacts, weather, to Facebook friends, everything is automated and information is wirelessly synced with your phone. In Android 2.3 Gingerbread, enabling Facebook sync was a rather straightforward and uncomplicated process. Just launch the app, choose to sync all contacts, and you’re good to go. The case…

  Near Field Communication (NFC) technology has become the next big thing these days as many manufacturers are bringing the technology into many of their mobile phones. If you ever thought that NFC-enabled phones are primarily being used for wiring monetary transactions, well, think again. While the majority of Android phone users are beginning to adopt Google Wallet as a means for wirelessly paying for their purchases, don’t you know that you can also do other neat stuff with your NFC-enabled phone like adding friends to your Facebook account? For the latter, you have the Add Friend (Facebook) app available…

Facebook has earned the allegiance of Taiwanese manufacturer HTC to build a smartphone fully integrated with Facebook services. The device has been given the codename “Buffy” and is reported to run a modified version of Android with services from Facebook deeply integrated in its system. According to AllThingsD sources who have insider information about the project, it will also run HTML5 as a platform for its applications. Speaking to AllThingsD, a spokesman from Facebook declined to comment about Buffy. So did HTC. But, the Facebook representative did say that the company thinks that every mobile device will do well when…

The headline last month was the release (finally!) of Facebook’s own Messenger app. There were other choice picks in there as well, so let’s look at some of the ones devs have released recently that keep you productive on the go. 1. Facebook Messenger (free) Wait, Facebook has a productivity app? Well, it does streamline your messages and let you connect with your contacts more quickly on the go. That’s the main gist of the new Messenger app. Great for organizing get togethers, not so much for calling meetings. 2. Seller Tool for Amazon ($2.99) If you’re a US Amazon Pro merchant, I’m…

The race for the top social network isn’t over yet, Facebook. Giant search engine company Google expands its realms to the social networking world with the announcement of Google+, a site that could be mistaken for Facebook, if not for the logo and design. Google+ has its version of Facebook Groups with Circles (plus easy-to-use privacy settings for each ‘circle’) and Facebook Chat with Huddles (plus a video chatting feature called Hangouts). What would possibly dethrone Facebook, experts say, would be the integration of Android for photo uploads. Google+, while it appears to be like Facebook in more ways than…

Building an Android application first, then creating a counterpart for iOS is said to be more difficult than normal, but the people behind Lightbox Photos for Android is doing exactly this. Unlike photo-sharing newcomers Instagram and Path which are both run only in iOS, Lightbox takes the Android-first stance. “Android is going to take the market position of where Nokia is today,” said Lightbox CEO Thai Tran. “Android phones will, within two years, be just as cheap as the non-smartphones you buy today.” Tran further explains that Android users are offered with inferior applications compared to counterparts offered to iPhone…
