VoxyPAD – Indie app of the day

Posted by wicked September - 1 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

What is VoxyPad?

VoxyPad is a real time collaboration tool that allows you to connect with another person and work on virtually anything. Collaborations take place over what the app refers to as “calls” and allows you connect with another person. It’s currently free to use.

The interface is pretty simple. There’s a large space that covers most of the screen where content you and your collaborator work on can be seen by both parties. Below that is a toolbar that allows you to do things like switch input tools (handwriting, text, etc), insert images, and access other tools that you can use. You can also use the toolbar to open websites and share files on cloud storage. You can even use voice if you need to.

It works fairly well over T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network and over WiFi but we imagine there will be hiccups here and there based on your connection speed. Some tools and edits are synced on command while others are synced automatically. In our tests and the video above, things seem to work pretty well when it comes to collaboration.

You can use this for a number of things. The app description recommends things like making customized photo albums and the like. We can’t see this being used as a serious productivity tool but it does have a solid foundation to grow into one.

VoxyPAD review

Collaboration made easy.

PROS
  • It works pretty well for how new it is.
  • Lots of tools including hand writing/drawing, photo insertion, emoticons, and text input.
  • You can access cloud storage files and annotate them with other people.
  • You can also use your voice to talk to people during sessions.
CONS
  • Serious productivity tools like editing cloud files aren’t present.
  • New app means bugs for people that haven’t been reported yet.
  • May be laggy or slow depending on your connection speed.

7.5

Overall, this is a pretty fun tool to have in the old app drawer. It’s free to use and while it lacks many serious productivity features, there is enough there to make this app useful.

11 best new Android apps released in August 2014

Posted by wicked August - 30 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off


August is coming to a close and that means a lot of things are about to happen. IFA is going to show us most of the autumn lineup of smartphones, people are going back to school, and the holiday season is officially almost here. Before all those exciting things happen, let’s take a look at the best new Android apps released in August of 2014.


Blur Launcher icon new Android appsBlur – A Launcher Replacement

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Blur is a new application from the makers of EvolveSMS and Talon for Twitter. It brings with it Google Now Launcher style functionality and alongside Google Now, it allows users and app devs to create cards and customize the experience. It’s brand new but it’s definitely worth a shot if you like Google Now Launcher but wish it could do other things too.
Get it on Google Play


Device Unlock new android appsDevice Unlock

[Price: Free]
T-Mobile’s Device Unlock app is in its infancy right now but it’s primed to be a must have app for T-Mobile subscribers. The app’s premise is simple. It will unlock your device to work on other networks. For now the selection of phones it supports is very slim but eventually it should support more so keep your eye on it.
Get it on Google Play

Duet new Android appsDuet

[Price: Free / $3.00]
Duet is a fun minimal brain teaser game where you control two balls that revolve around a central point. You must spin the balls to avoid obstacles and continue on. The game features a bunch of levels for free and you can get more stuff if you fork out the $3.00 for the full version. It’s a lot of fun and the core game is free to play so why not try it?
Get it on Google Play


Google News and Weather new android appsGoogle News and Weather

[Price: Free]
The once dead Google News & Weather has come back to life and is now available in the Google Play Store. The revived app also comes with a brand new card UI that brings a modern touch to the old app. It’s free in the Google Play Store right now if you want to give the revamped news and weather app a try.
Get it on Google Play
Google News and Weather


Guardians of the Galaxy TUW new Android appsGuardians of the Galaxy: TUW

[Price: $2.99]
One of the best summer blockbusters of the year also came accompanied by a pretty decent mobile game. This is an action adventure game that also has some RPG elements. There are no in app purchases which will appeal to a number of gamers and it’s pretty cheap all things considered.
Get it on Google Play


hangar best new android appsHangar

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Hangar is an application that essentially puts a small app dock in your notification pane so you can get to your favorite apps more quickly. It’s a great tool for minimalists who don’t like apps on their home screen or people who heavily multitask. You can customize it yourself or let the app choose based on your tastes.
Get it on Google Play

Locket Lock Screen best new android appsLocket Lock Screen

[Price: Free]
Everyone remembers Locket Lock Screen as the app that used to let you tap on advertisements on your lock screen to earn money. Now it’s marching to a different tune as a news aggregator lock screen replacement. It’ll feed you news you want straight to your lock screen for you to check out every time you turn your device screen on. It’s in beta, but it’s also free so it’s worth checking out.
Get it on Google Play

Surgeon Simulator new Android appsSurgeon Simulator

[Price: $5.99]
Surgeon Simulator is already a classic on PC but it’s not available for Android. In this slightly twisted surgeon game, you’re supposed to operate on people and save their lives. Keywords there are supposed to. In reality you can do pretty much whatever you want and you can have a lot of admittedly grotesque fun with it. It’s a paid game but there are no in app purchases.
Get it on Google Play


Swing Copters new Android appsSwing Copters

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
While I personally dislike this game, I can’t deny that its popularity and ability to kill time by making you hate yourself is something to truly behold. It’s not a fun game but it isn’t not fun if that makes sense. It’s free to play and you can hate yourself right along with all the rest of us who have played it.
Get it on Google Play


TapPath icon new android appsTapPath

[Price: $0.99]
TapPath is a potentially useful application that allows you to control how your device reacts to tapping on links. For instance, a single tap will open the link in a browser while a double tap may add it to Evernote and a triple tap will let you share it on social media. The possibilities are nearly endless and if you deal with third party links a lot then you should totally have TapPath.
Get it on Google Play


Wally best new android appsWally

[Price: Free]
Last and certainly not least this month is Wally. This is a beautifully designed wallpaper app that really shows off the elegance of material design. It has a really good wallpaper selection and it’s just really fun to use. If you want some new wallpapers, give this app a shot.

5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week – Google Play Weekly

Posted by wicked August - 29 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off


Welcome back to Google Play Weekly! This week we talk about Rocket Player’s return to the Google Play Store. Google has cleaned up all of the Swing Copter clones which is a good thing. As it turns out, Amazon bought Twitch and not Google. A new study came out that shows that mobile usage trumps desktop usage but people aren’t using that many apps. T-Mobile’s Music Freedom promotion added a number of new streaming services, but still no Google Play Music. Finally, here are five Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week.


Locket Lock Screen Locket Lock Screen (beta)

[Price: Free]
First up this week is Locket Lock Screen. You may remember this as the app that let you click on ads to make money but they have since changed their tune. Their new app is a lock screen replacement app that shoots news directly to your lock screen. It’s pretty well designed and works well even though it’s in beta. It’s also free which is nice.

Google News and WeatherGoogle News & Weather

[Price: Free]
Google News and Weather was brought back from the dead this last week and with it came a huge update. First and foremost, it’s not available in the Google Play Store free of charge. It’s also received a huge UI update that brings the popular card UI into the mix. It’s rolling out right now so it may still read as incompatible for some. Otherwise, why not check it out?

PushBullet Android appsPushBullet

[Price: Free]
PushBullet got an update this last week that seems pretty innocuous except for one big thing. With this update, you can now reply to text messages directly from your computer (using any app) instead of just seeing the notifications. This practically doubles the usefulness of PushBullet and the app is free to use so why not right?
Get it on Google Play


Lockable Android appsLockable

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Lockable is an application that lets you put a lock screen on your Android Wear device. It’s a fairly simple premise and lets you do things like have a pin on your Wear device so that you can keep it secure. The app is free to use but to get the pin and pattern unlock, you’ll have to pay for it via in app purchases.
Get it on Google Play

Nova Launcher Android appsNove Launcher

[Price: Free / $4.00]
Last up this week is an update to Nova Launcher. Along with the usual bug fixes and performance improvements you’ll also get several new app drawer transitions to let you customize your app drawer more. The transitions are circle, slide up, zoom, and fade which are pretty self-explanatory. If you’re a Nova user already, the update should be rolled out by now.

Mobie360 Launcher – Indie app of the day

Posted by wicked August - 28 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

What is Mobie360 Launcher?

Mobie360 Launcher is an app that’s currently in beta. It wants to be the end-all-be-all of your launcher selections and has a lot of features to that effect. We’re not just talking about launcher features, but features you’ get from others apps too.

First and foremost, Mobie360 Launcher is a launcher which means it’ll replace your stock launcher. It comes with three lock screens. The left screen is your device health, set up status, and various other phone statistics. You can also check your device’s security there because this launcher comes with built-in anti-malware features.

The middle screen is your main screen and it features a wheel of app icons. The apps change based on information like your location, your interests, the time of day, etc. In the center is your app expression button. By pressing it you can select things like Chilling, Catching Up, etc to show a whole new list of apps that (should) correspond with the name of the expressions.

The right home screen simply holds the last expressions you accessed. That way it doesn’t disturb any of your other home screens. Across the bottom is your standard 4-icon dock and the app drawer is your standard, horizontal, paginated drawer.

Really the best way to get acquainted with this launcher is to use it for a few days. You won’t see many of the features within minutes after installing. Mobile360 Launcher requires some time to get used to your usage habits, your locations, and all that jazz just like any other contextual launcher.

Mobie360 Launcher

It’s something a little different.

PROS
  • It’s a unique premise. There are other contextual launchers but none of them present like Mobie360 Launcher.
  • It has a number of other features like a battery life calculator, built-in anti-malware, mobile data usage calculator, and other stuff.
  • Simple to use. Three home screens and most features are laid out in a manner that makes them easy to access.
  • There is a lot of set up, but the app does pretty well after that at figuring out your routines.
CONS
  • No widget or icon pack support.
  • Beta = bugs.
  • Simplicity comes at the price of customization featuers.

7.5

If you decide to give it a shot then you should remember that it is still in beta. That means there will almost certainly be some bugs that still need ironed out and some features that still need to be implemented. That said, it’s an interesting take on the Android home screen. It doesn’t have the customization or freedom of other launchers but with popular apps like Aviate, sometimes people just want something more simple.

Meet the Devs – Chengdu Everimaging Co., Ltd

Posted by wicked August - 26 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

developer interview
Welcome back to our Meet the Devs segment! In this piece we take a little time to get to know the people who really make Android what it is today and that is the app developers. In this week’s developer interview, we are talking to Sharon Lee of Chengdu Everimaging Co., Ltd.

Name: Sharon Lee

Developer Name: Chengdu Everimaging Co., Ltd

Country: China

Website: Fotor Official Website

Google + Profile/Page: Everimaging

How many people on your team? 80

developer interview

Apps

Fotor Photo Editor

What level of experience do you have with coding and development?

As we all know, the level that a product can achieve is no longer decided by the coding and experience of some individuals. The level of the product is decided by the experience and capacity of the whole team. After years of development, most members of the Fotor team have more than 6 years of experience with large-scale project development. In the meantime, we kept building the team’s structure. The average age of the team is 25-28, so we are full of energy and able to respond quickly. The Fotor team is powerful and maintains sustainable development capacity in the industry.

What level of experience do you have with design?

Everimaging has been developing mobile apps since its establishment in 2009, starting with iOS. One year later, we began to develop Android versions. With rich experience in the design field of mobile UI and UE, the design team has kept in touch with developers all over the world and learned from them all the time. In light of this, we are quite right in believing that our team is good both at home and abroad.

What apps have you made?

Fotor Photo Editor, Fotor HDR, SnapStory.

How do you monetize your apps?

In-app purchase items.

What can Android do to improve?

The issues of severe fragmentization show up in aspects such as various devices, brands, versions and resolutions, which causes so many headaches for the developers.
As for the normalization of the apps, GooglePlay did provide the developers with a way to submit apps uniformly. However, it is not the only one. Every area, every language and every brand has their own application market. In order to make the apps popular, the developers would consistently work on the standardization of the versions, the compatibility and multi-language, but still the needs of the customers cannot be met.
As for the utilization of the devices, the multitasking background of Android provides humanized solutions under lots of situations, but it also occupied a great amount of system resources, which makes the users’ devices slow and causes crashes. And these all lead to bad experience for the users.

Why did you choose Android? Do you develop for other platforms? What are the differences between them?

Because Android is an open platform, it’s easier to find partners than other platforms so that developers can complete and promote products in a way of their own, without being forced to go a certain way. Therefore, Android can expand to more markets easily. We do develop for other platforms. As a unified platform for the software and hardware, iOS has forged the best user experience. But Android has given everyone a chance to use smartphones. From the very beginning, Android has covered the mid-lower mobile device markets. And in the process of rapid development, Android is not only used in mobile markets, but also in the field of laptops, televisions, even washing machines and refrigerators.

What are your thoughts on iOS and Windows 8?

IOS: closed, devices are unified, users are high-value (they are more willingly to pay for apps which reflect a good experience.)
Windows8: Open but authority-requested, apps have better normalization, too few users.

What do you think of the Android design guidelines?

Design instruction does bring us some convenience in some aspects:
It helps to define a new design standard, which allows the android devices of different versions and brands to maintain unity and normalization in aspects such as colors, interactive operation and component using.
It is not compulsory, and developers can still realize the goal according to their original product design.
It can help to combine the system design and the product more closely and reduce the learning cost of the customers and improve the user experience. Besides, it can help to reduce the communication costs between the designers and developers and make them achieve the product goals more easily.

What are your favorite apps?

  • Dropbox: the stable speed and function of synchronous data, a preview of various kinds of files, good synchronization algorithm of different files and various kinds of ways to promote free space.
  • Evernote: multi-platform, write down and look through at any time, nice mobile recording experience.
  • Any.do: Clean interface, full functions, synchronizes with Google calendar which is key
  • Path: wonderful user experience and UI design
  • Instagram:clean and plain interactive experience
  • VSCO: excellent filters can help users edit great photos.

developer interview

What has been your experience working with Google?

Google is worth being respected. Its ability to innovate, team concept and unrivaled courage is an example for us. Indeed, Fotor’s Android Team is growing.

What does the future of development look like?

In the process of Fotor’s development, many complicated and professional techniques are used, all of which reflect the wisdom and hard work of engineers and the professional requirements of program development. However, this is not the future. Times are changing, programming languages are getting simpler to develop and easier to learn. Meanwhile, developing tools are stronger and easier to use. We will find that everyone is able to transform his/her idea to a relative product using a strong and easily-used tool. In the future, “developing” will be not only referred to developing something, but a real creation process. Like pianists just need a piano to play the melody that is just taken into shape so he doesn’t need to care about how the keys work.

What tips do you have for aspiring developers?

There is a request in Fotor: Never stop learning, never stop trying, and never stop thinking. That’s because we are creating the future.


We want to thank Sharon Lee for chatting with us in this week’s developer interview! If you’re a developer and this looks like something you’d like to do, check out our Meet the Devs form! We look forward to hearing from you.

5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Google Play Weekly

Posted by wicked August - 22 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off


We have a lot of stuff to cover so let’s get right into it! First up, an awesome new wallpaper app came out that helps show off the awesome Material Design. An adult entertainer application was announced which brings strippers and clients together like Uber does. A judge in Brazil has ordered Google and Apple to remove Secret, an anonymous application where people tell secrets, from users’ phones. Firefox will probably be getting Chromecast support soon. There’s a new Sega Humble Bundle that came with some awesome changes to the Humble Bundle website. Finally, Google Drive and Google sheets got updates that add some new features and improve performance. Now let’s check out five Android apps that made a big splash this week.


Ignore No More Android appsIgnore No More

[Price: $1.99]
Ignore No More is an app that made waves this week because it was developed by a housewife who got sick of her kids not returning her calls. The premise is easy, you have a parent account and you can add your kids as child accounts. If you try to get a hold of them and they don’t answer, you can remotely lock their phone until they call you back. It’s a great tool for parents but kids are probably not going to like it so much.

Surgeon Simulator Android appsSurgeon Simulator

[Price: $5.99]
Surgeon Simulator is a game that’s new on Android but an old favorite on PC. In this game you play a surgeon who must perform operations on people in the line of general medicine and dentistry. You essentially just perform the surgery while keeping the patient alive. However, thanks to the loose game play, you can have some macabre fun with this game. It’s a tad expensive but it’s pretty fun.
Get it on Google Play


OneNote Android appsOneNote

[Price: Free]
Microsoft OneNote received a pretty substantial update this last week that includes new handwriting recognition and a tablet optimized UI. The handwriting recognition is a fun feature and you can write with a stylus or your finger but by far the more interesting part is the tablet UI because one common complaint with Microsoft apps are their lack of tablet support. Here’s hoping this translates to more in the future.
Get it on Google Play


Swing Copters Android appsSwing Copters

[Price: Free / $0.99]
Swing Copters is the spiritual successor to the wildly popular Flappy Bird game that was made popular and subsequently killed off earlier this year. If you were hoping for something different, you’re going to be disappointed but if you were hoping for pretty much the same thing but horizontal instead of vertical, you’re going to love this game. There’s a free and paid version but otherwise what you see is pretty much what you get.
Get it on Google Play


Blur Launcher icon Android appsBlur – A Launcher Replacement

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Last up this week is Blur. Blur is a launcher from the makers of EvolveSMS and Talon for Twitter that offers a Google Now Launcher style experience but without Google Now. Instead, developers can create custom pages for their applications and when users swipe to one side, their pages will show up along with everyone else’s. It’s definitely a neat premise and you can check it out for free right now.
