Talk2Phone Desktop SMS: SMS, call notifications, and more from phone to Google Talk

by: Carl ParkerOctober 25, 2012

Unless you have your phone around your neck or if you’re someone tied to Facebook or Twitter, you won’t really remember checking your phone especially when you have three pages worth of e-mails to reply to. You’ll find out later that you’ve had around ten missed calls and twenty-five messages from your boss, colleagues, partner, mother, and your landlord.

All those messages may have saved you from booking a meeting [...]

by: Dan EvansSeptember 28, 2012

Keeping in touch with friends through your mobile phone is great, but it’s also rather costly. Even if you’re on a postpaid plan, constantly communicating with someone can lead to a painful bill at the end of the month.

You might like: What is SMS?

Thanks to smartphones, however, we can opt to use services such as Skype to call the ones that matter to us via the Internet. We can even go on Video Call if we really want to see our friend’s face. Skype, however, is rather limited in the ways we can communicate with our friends. PingShow has developed an app that goes beyond what Skype offers you.

by: Dan EvansSeptember 19, 2012

When you hear the name ClockworkMod, you instantly associate it with the custom recovery that almost all Android phones are using. Though ClockworkMod Recovery is certainly very handy, that isn’t the only thing Koushik Dutta, also known as ClockworkMod, has contributed to the Android community.

Some of you may already be familiar with his other apps, but DeskSMS, in particular, is an app worth noting because it allows users to send texts from their device’s phone number via Google Talk, Gmail, or their [...]

Premium-rate SMS malware survived in Google Play for weeks

by: Gary SimsJuly 12, 2012

Based on image from Symantec

A nasty bit of malware known as Android.Dropdialer has been hiding out in Google Play since June 24 and has managed to generate somewhere between 50,000 to 100,000 downloads.

The malware managed to remain undetected for so long because the malicious components where downloaded separately, from a Dropbox account, and did not form part of the original package submitted to Google Play. “What is most interesting about this [...]

by: Carl ParkerMay 25, 2012

One of the greatest things about having an Android phone its ability to display messages, like popups, anywhere on your phone. Everything goes according to our expectations except for one thing: pop-ups don’t work when you’re playing games or using apps in full-screen.
