I don’t think I can appropriately describe how much work it would take to pull me away from Swype. One handed, there is no better way to type. Period. I’m
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.
A little bit of CyanogenMod, XDA, some hard work by the Android Community and what do we get? In one word, Awesomesauce! This one is truly a piece of work.
We received a tip from FrugalGames earlier this evening about their first Android game, Flee. After checking out their YouTube video and blog, I was intrigued and decided to download it and try it out. Two minutes into playing it, I was immediately transported back to the late 80s’ where I was usually found face down in a Tiger handheld.
I think the chief complaint behind companies who insist on having the own software overtop Android, be it Blur, Sense, or TouchWiz, is the delay in updates. Here I am,
Unlike a certain fruit based crowd, us Android users have been enjoying multitasking on our devices since, well… the dawn of time (that being the beginning of Android, anything beforehand being too insignificant to be regarded as “time”). However, there has never been a really great way of switching between open apps; sure you can use the “recent apps” feature by holding down the home button, which will probably satisfy most, especially since the amount of apps shown was increased to 8 in Android 2.2. For other, more picky people like myself though, the functionality offered natively is never enough.
I don’t know anyone who does not use Torrents for something. Everyone uses it for something, I won’t get into details as to WHAT you use it for – you
The phones we purchase are nice devices, we spend the money to get the best. Some people spend as much on their phone as they do their PC or maybe
There is literally a virtual keyboard for everyone, even people who have not used a virtual keyboard since the days of the original Palm handhelds. Remember those weird little pads at the bottom, where you could spell out every letter or number? I got pretty fast on mine. The software that drove that was called Graffiti, and now that software has been brought to Android.
The Instant Messenger is one of the first huge changes to the internet that, in my opinion, brought on a great deal of its early popularity for teen audiences. When
I started dabbling in geocaching late last year as my son and I wanted something fun to do on days off. Being he was six at the time, he was only too eager to help daddy hunt down treasure in the real world. We bounced from one Android app to another, trying each out to see what we liked best. Due to memory limitations of my G1, I was constantly uninstalling applications and games to make room for new stuff. Couple that with a quick-draining battery and it was becoming tough to stay enthusiastic or spend much time in the field. Suffice it to say, we got out of the game for a few months. Then all of a sudden, last month’s official Geocaching.com announcement put us right back on the hunt.
As some of you may remember, I did a review of ProOnGo Expense when they added Android support. My friends, they have been working hard since then to make this
Given a typical day, there are a stream of updates and messages coming to our Android Devices. Calls from friends, co-workers, clients, and numbers we don’t know. Often, we can’t
