App Review: VPN Connections
I have been using Wade Mealing’s VPN Connections application for a few months now and I am very impressed.Â While it took some time to get Exchange support on the G1 (I currently use NitroDesk TouchDown – future app review), I could not take advantage of it until I got a proper IPSEC VPN client.Â Enter VPN Connections.
The UI is clean and simple and it allows connections to password and RSA protected VPN concentrators.Â If there is a drawback for this application I would say that it’s only because it works on a rooted Android device at the moment.Â I have heard, however, that the developer is rumored to be working with Google to develop a production version for stock Android.
The app gives you a network alert anytime the VPN loses connection with the option to reconnect.Â I have found this app to work just OK on EDGE but exceptionally well on WiFi and most 3G connections.Â This application can be found in the Android Market.

Music is one of the major ways on how we define ourselves. Many of us carry around our MP3 player, along with our smartphone. With larger SD cards, we’ve started to save our music on there, and move to one device, but let’s be honest, we still get sick of the same playlist over and over. Streaming radio has definitely become a solution, but apps like Pandora are only available in the US, and only certain phones offer FM radio, so Winamp has found a solution with SHOUTcast.
