App Review: StreamFurious

Streaming music application that delivers on its promise with nothing extra. It doesn't chew up system resources or slow performance down. It's small enough that this app ought to stay on your Android handset once it's installed.

App Review: TeleNav GPS Navigator

If you don't already own a GPS device then you need to grab this for your Android handset. It's everything you expect from a stand alone unit in a convenient size. One of the most fully realized apps I've had a chance to play with.

App Review: Tippobillosplitamus

A fresh take on the same old, same old. Clean, easy to navigate interface makes it stand out from all the other bill splitting and tip calculator applications we've played with so far. Not short on options either.

App Review: SMS Popup

SMS Popup is one of those quiet, under-rated apps that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. We’ve yet to see it show up on those “must have” lists that other sites and magazines put together and we can’t figure out why. It’s loaded with features that enhance your messaging options and looks every bit as good as the Google stuff that comes loaded with Android.
