Copy Bubble: A Floating Clipboard Manager That Saves Multiple Snippets [Android]

Copy-Bubble_Intro.png
For PC users, the clipboard feature is as natural as anything else. It allows users to easily copy and paste text, files, folders, and more. Luckily for Android users, the copy & paste functionality has always been there too but akin to the default clipboard feature of desktop, the clipboard of Android can store only one item at a time. Copy Bubble is a new nifty little application that improves the default single-purpose clipboard in Android by allowing you to save multiple text snippets to it and use them any time you want. But since there are many similar apps we’ve seen before, Copy Bubble makes itself stand out from the crowd by presenting everything in a floating window giving you access to clipboard items on the fly by tapping an always-accessible hovering bubble.

Angry Birds Epic: The Birds Are Back & Charged With New Skills [Review]

Angry Birds Epic
Angry Birds was one of those games I was crazy excited to play when I got my first smartphone and I wasn't disappointed. The franchise is one of the most successful ones in mobile gaming and a movie is slated for release in 2016 but the guys at Rovio are still developing new Angry Bird games with Angry Birds Epic being the latest to hit the Google Play Store. Unlike its previous versions that have a variation of the old sling-shot gameplay, this new game is a turn based RPG. The story is of course the same; bad piggies have stolen the birds' eggs and the birds are angry. Read More

Sort Preferences In The iOS Settings App Into Groups [Jailbreak]

PreferenceTag
Apple has good reason behind the way everything in iOS is laid out and as Jony Ive will tell you before each new iPhone or iOS version is announced, a lot of thought went in to making it happen. iDevice owners who jailbreak their devices would disagree; the mobile OS is great but they can think of a few things they would like done differently. If one of your areas of contention is the Settings app and how the different settings are listed, then PreferenceTag is a tweak that will let you change it completely. It's available in both the BigBoss and Insanelyi repositories and it allows you to group different settings into tags. You have complete control over which setting will be grouped under a certain tag and if you aren't into creating tags you can just hide the preferences you don't use. Read More

Shader Gives You A Basic New Tab Page With A 3D Background [Chrome]

3d new tab
The New Tab page in Chrome, or in any other browser for that matter, is a very important page. Google redesigned this page in Chrome only a few updates ago and Firefox has also made some changes, albeit subtle ones to its new tab page. So, if the developers of these amazing browsers rethink the new tab page, it only stands to reason that developers and users alike will have an opinion on what they want or don't want, hence the very healthy list of extensions in the Chrome Web Store that look to make the new tab page better. We have our own list of amazing extensions for modifying the new tab page. Shader - 3D New Tab is an extension that overhauls the new tab page giving it a seemingly 3D background. It's very clean and focuses on giving you essential information only. You get the date and time, a direct link to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+, and Github, and a search bar. The extension has eight themes for you to choose from and it is surprisingly fast considering the background is animated. Read More

Hangar-Widget-Two.png

Floata: Add A Floating Button To Your Screen To Tweet From Any App

Floata_Main.png
I’m no Twitter junkie, but I’m absurdly picky when it comes to mobile apps that are created for it. Since the humble beginnings of Android, I’ve seen plenty of 3rd party Twitter clients making their way to the Google Play Store. That probably means that the competition is tough for new developers to bring something fresh to the table which can enhance your Twitter usage besides offering something unique. Floata is just that app which I found particularly helpful if you need to tweet something quickly whenever, wherever you want. Because, unlike traditional Twitter applications, Floata can float over other apps, allowing you to access it by simply tapping on its miniscule icon. Read More

How To Add & Read RSS Feeds In The New Firefox For Android

home feeds
Firefox 30 for both desktop and Android is out and one of the new features in the Android variant is a way to read RSS feeds from your home page. It's the perfect way to turn Firefox on your Android device into a fairly basic feed reader. The feature is tied to an add-on called Home Feeds which has been developed by a Mozilla developer but does not carry the company name for some odd reason. In addition to allowing you to read a feed from your home page, it also makes it super easy to add that feed to the page. Being basic, it does not have any buttons for marking an item as read or unread. You get the twelve most recent items in the feed. Read More

Ready-beta-testers-Community-Google.png
Here’s one thing about contact apps; they are all practically the same. But Ready for Android, on other hand, has tried to reinvent the wheel by bringing the most common communication options, that is making phone calls, sending text messages or exchanging emails, right upfront. Instead of bogging down your device with obtrusive features, Ready wants to make things simpler than ever. And on top of that, Ready’s beautiful interface is incredibly intuitive and easy to use.

Prism Is An App Focused Launcher Geared Towards Simplicity [Android]

Prism-Launcher.png
A great user interface is one of the most important factors of whether to download an app or not, but it shouldn’t have to be the only one. When it comes to application launchers for Android, the opinions between design and simplicity will greatly vary among users. Some people fancy loads of customization options and gorgeous UI but others simply want a launcher app that works and provides quick access to the installed apps and important Android settings. There’s really no shortage of app launchers on the Google Play Store, but Prism Launcher is purportedly geared towards users who need a bare bones launcher replacement. The app is still in early BETA so don’t expect too many features out of the box. Read More

Vibify Brings Smart Alert From TouchWiz To All Android Devices

Vibify_Intro.png
For most smartphone aficionados, Samsung's Galaxy line of phones has much broader brand recognition than all other Android devices combine. And among those, the ‘S’ nomenclature has always been the top notch offering from the South Korean giant. Back when Samsung released their Galaxy S3 device, the company unveiled a rather convenient feature called Smart Alert that notifies users of any missed calls or text the next time they pick it up by simply vibrating the device. XDA-Developer member spirosbond’s new app labeled Vibify brings this feature to all Android devices. And the interesting bit is that it lets you set vibration for more than just incoming calls and messages. Read More

Pine Is A Beautiful Bookmarks Manager Housed Entirely In Your Browser [Chrome]

Pine
My bookmarks are a mess; partly because I'm lazy and don't always attempt to keep the links I save organized but also because Chrome's bookmarks manager doesn't offer a very functional interface as far as bookmark organization is concerned. Pine is a Chrome extension that adds an aesthetically pleasing and fully functional bookmarks manager to your browser. It lives entirely in your browser and has no service working behind it. Not only can you see the many links in your bookmarks library but you can organize them, add tags, rename them, and move them to a different folder. Read More

Reddit Vibrant Is For Those Just In It For The Pictures & Videos

Reddit Vibrant feed
As great as the content shared on Reddit is, OC or otherwise, the one type of content I will always prefer over others is pictures. DIY projects, cats, kittens, huskies, landscapes, and anything that's lol-worthy is what I click on 99% of the time. Reddit Vibrant is an Android app available in the Google Play Store for Redditors who prefer photo and video posts only. The app lets you sign in to your account, up/down vote whatever you want, and read and post comments. It's a filter for image and video content for the front page and every single sub-reddit you are subscribed to. Read More

Hush Is A Password Protected Bookmarks Manager For Private Browsing [Chrome]

bookmark
Hush is a secret stash for your bookmarks; to be exact it's an extension made for bookmarks you want to save in Incognito mode because it lets you password protect the links you save. The saved links are not saved to the default bookmarks manager. The extension has a very neat and clean interface for viewing and editing bookmarks that you've saved and it lets you import or export them, securely. The extension works only in Incognito mode and that's actually the downside of the extension because it's something a user might want to use instead of the default bookmarks manager. Read More

Saving Instagram Photos To Your Mobile Device & Desktop

get link
Instagram is home to some of the best filters and amazing food shots. Most of use Instagram to snap a picture, apply filters, and maybe use the many new photo editing features to make the picture look absolutely perfect, before we share it with the world. For others, Instagram, or rather using Instagram requires additional knowledge of how things work. The app and its backend service are notorious for not supporting upload from any other app or even its own web interface and that's not all it limits. Saving pictures to your hard drive without needing a third party service or maybe saving your photos to your camera roll is not as obvious or as easy to do as it should be but here are a few fairly simple ways to save Instagram photos.

WakeUp Automatically Turns On The Screen When You Pick Up Your Device [Android]

WakeUp_Main.png
Your smartphone is resting on your desk, you pick it up, and its screen automatically wakes up. You didn’t press anything — it just knows. Magic? Or maybe an alien race swapped your phone with some interstellar gadgetry. Who knows. But all this mumbo jumbo aside, the free little app called WakeUp will now enable your Android device to turn itself on without pressing any power or home button. The app uses the built in tilt sensor of your Android to automatically wake it up when you pick and tilt it towards your face. Read More

Gecko Dialer: Access Dialpad And Google Search In Floating Window [Android]

Gecko-Dialer_Button.jpg
We all know that Android can easily handle two different tasks simultaneously. But Google’s open source OS doesn’t offer true multitasking a la Windows or Mac OS X. Even though manufacturers like Samsung have already tried to fill this gap with their Mult-Window feature found on the company’s top end Galaxy phones and tablets, other OEMs are yet to bring similar functionality to the table. Recently though, floating apps are becoming the de facto standard for performing multiple tasks at the same time, because these apps enable users to access certain tasks within another application  (Facebook Messenger, anyone?). Gecko Dialer is one such handy tool that lets you access the dialler interface in a floating window, enabling you to easily input long numbers and extensions inside another app. Read More

Perfect Tip: Calculate How Much Should You Pay And Tip When Splitting The Bill

Whether you eat out alone or with a group of friends, tipping is common etiquette (provided you get good service of course) and we all know that 20% is the standard rate.  Perfect Tip is a smart and simple little Android app that not only helps you calculate the right amount to tip based on the percentage you should be tipping, (percentage is customizable) but also divides the final amount among the group of diners. It also uses subtle visual cues to let you know if the amount our tipping is fair or if you're stiffing the serving staff. Ready to eat out? Read More
