griffin helo

So recently I got asked to review the HELO TC helicopter and I have played with it for a good while and I honestly realy like it!

Facebook has been one of the worst when it comes to app development on any platform although the worst is Android. Facebook is now forcing its employees to use the Android mobile Facebook app in an effort to speed up the process of getting a fast, reliable app developed.

A Hundred 5-Star Reviews For $150 (Or: How Cheaters Game The Android Play Store Using Mechanical Turk)

picWay back in the day, if you wanted to know if a piece of software was safe, reliable, or usable before you opened the package, you were out of luck.

Instagram is out for Android, here's a review

intagram logoToday, Instagram for Android was released and here is our review of the shiny new application.

My first impressions of the app were really good, and it appears to be a nice solid application which appears to be fairly stable (no crashes for me yet). The interface has some iOS elements with the bottom bar, but the rest of it looks fairly Android-alike which is really nice to see. The bottom bar was probably included to make it look similar and recognisable as being Instagram, but unlike some other applications it is actually Android-styled.

spotify

Spotify is a pretty popular application, considering over 5 million people have downloaded but the problem is it hasn’t been updated since sometime in November of 2011.

The Android Market Is Now Google Play - Integrating Apps, Games, Books, Music, And Movies

google_playGoodbye, Android Market, hello, Google Play. Just moments ago, Google let loose the re-branded Android content hub. What's new? Actually, not all that much (yet).
The change in name is largely an exercise in product consolidation. Google Books, Google Music, Google Movies, and the Android Market are all now under the "Google Play" banner, in an attempt to bring all of Google's content services to one place.
