google-play

With only a couple of days left until the big reveal, those who are interested in getting the pure Google phone are already strategizing on ways to secure the Nexus 4. If you live in Canada, there’s a good chance that you’d be able to buy it off Google Play.

Sometime today, the 8GB Nexus 7 went from “In Stock” to “Coming Soon” in the Google Play Store. Could this mean that the 32GB Nexus 7 is on the way, or could it just be a lot of people who decided to buy the Nexus 7 when they saw how much even the cheapest iPad Mini would cost?

Notif-review

Ever since Android saw a total revamp of it’s pulldown notification system, I’ve been impressed. I’d always wondered, though, how could I create my own custom notifications? After doing some research, I discovered Notif.

Notif allows you to create four different types of custom notification, and it does it all for free. Interested? Find out more after the break.

google play search

Back in the day Google’s search engine made directory type sites (like Yahoo!) obsolete because now everything could be found using a search tern, but the Google Play Store is essentially a directory of apps. Every time I use it to try and find an app I think I am back in the mid-90s. Surely Google must be able to take the mighty power of its search engine and combine it with some clever technology (like the bits that power Google News) and come up with a better way for Android users to find apps. The fact that services like AppBrain exist means that Google has more it could do.

We’ve all been there, anxiously checking our phones, making sure we didn’t miss that important call we’ve been expecting. Maybe your wife is pregnant. Maybe you just interviewed for a new job.
