Flashify For Android Offers Easy Flashing, Recovery & Kernel Cloud Backup

If you’re an avid Android user who frequently keeps flashing ROMS, tweaks, hacks and mods via ZIP files, you’d likely be aware of the hassles involved. You have to reboot your device and enter the recovery mode for the said purpose. While there are benefits to rooting your Android device and flashing all kinds of stuff to take it beyond what it can do in its stock form, it can be a tricky world for beginners. Flashify is an extremely useful app that allows you to flash boot images (kernels) and recovery images without having to go to recovery. In addition, you can also flash zip files using the app, and the phone will then reboot into recovery to perform the specific operation without any further input from you. If you have TWRP recovery installed, you can also use the app to flash multiple zip files in a batch, and wipe data, cache & Dalvik cache with the flashing. Flashify can also backup your device’s kernel and recovery to SD card or Dropbox, and restore it from there when required...
A few of things should be noted before using Flashify: your device or operating system can be harmed if you end up flashing an unsupported or corrupt file, so utmost precaution is advised. Moreover, Flashify requires a rooted Android device for it to work. When launched, you’re presented with two tabs at the top: Flash and Backup/Restore. When you flash something, the flashed files appear under the Recent entry. You can tap this entry to reflash the file right away. Flashify also asks you if you would want to wipe data, cache or dalvik cache during the process. If you have TWRP installed and want to flash multiple files, simply select to flash them one after the other in the app, and specify any wipe options with the last one only...

Access Android Photos, View & Send SMS From A Browser With FoneLink

Smartphones were invented to boost our productivity but if used the wrong way, they can also destroy productivity like nothing else. You could be on fire one second getting more work done in an hour than you have the whole day when suddenly, your phone will alert you to a new message and the next thing you know, you’ll be completely indulged into the conversation. For me, once I have my phone in my hand, even if it’s just to read a message, checking me email, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter becomes unavoidable. The only way to avoid a dip in your productivity is to stay away from your phone while working, but that isn’t always possible. FoneLink is an Android app by the developers of BlueStacks that works with its web interface allowing you to read and respond to your text messages and view your photos right in your computer’s browser, regardless of whether you are on a Mac, Windows PC, a Linux based system, or even a tablet. The Android app is what creates the connection between your phone and the service’s web interface...
You must sign in to the app using your Google account. Launch the app on your phone and it will automatically detect the Google account(s) you’ve added to your phone. Just make sure the right account is selected, tap ‘Finish’ and stow your phone at a safe distance where you won’t be tempted to check up on it.

Official MEGA App For Android Now Available In The Play Store

MEGA - the rebranded file sharing service by the infamous Kim Dotcom that gives you 50GB of storage space for your files – now has a smartphone app for Android. Strictly speaking, it isn’t entirely new; MEGA has actually acquired an existing app and modified it to match its web interface. While it’s no match for the file manager offered by MEGA’s web interface, it can do just about everything that can be done from the web interface. You can view a complete list of files you’ve uploaded to your account, select and download any of them, upload files from your device, and organize them into folders. The app has a search feature and files can be downloaded directly from a link as well. The app can also automatically back up photos from your device’s camera to your MEGA account. With the 50GB of space you get, this beats backing them up to Dropbox or Google Drive...
Sign in to the app with your MEGA account and wait for it to fetch a list of files you’ve uploaded. The files themselves aren’t automatically downloaded to your device, so the list will load fairly quickly depending on how many files you’ve uploaded. From left to right, the buttons at the bottom allow you to upload a file, update files list, create a new folder, download a file from a link, and visit your profile.

Boomerang Is A Gmail Client For Android With Scheduling & Mailbox-Like Reminders

Email applications for Android come in all shapes and sizes. All modern smartphones ship with an email app as a part of the operating system itself to give you a head start. In addition to that, Gmail users have the official Gmail app by Google available on most major platforms as well. However, if you want to try out something different for a change on your Android, give Boomerang a shot. It might sound a strange name for an email app but it does a great job of handling your inbox. The app (initially a browser extension) only supports Gmail and Google Apps Accounts as of this writing, though support for additional email services is in the pipeline according to the developers . The main question, however, is why would anyone want to use Boomerang over the official Gmail app? The answer lies in Boomerang’s intuitive and elegant interface, not to forget its host of unique features like the ability to schedule emails for later and snooze email messages for later, customizable gestures and more...

PowerLine For Android Adds Bar Indicators To Screen Edges For Battery, WiFi & Several Other Stats

Widgets on your screen take up space that you would otherwise dedicate to your favorite apps. While many beautifully crafted widgets greatly compliment your screen, having way too many can make it look quite cluttered. Widget developers therefore have to get creative with how they design their widgets, and keep a lot of aesthetic details in consideration. If you are a minimalist who wants to keep monitoring key stats of their Android device such as battery level, signal strength, Wi-Fi strength, unread messages, missed calls, memory, processor consumption, internal/external storage space, give PowerLine a shot. It is an Android app that adds on-screen indicators for all these stats in form of entirely unobtrusive colored lines along the edges, meaning you don’t have to use any widgets to clutter up your screen for viewing this info at a glance. These lines show whether the item in question is on a healthy level, riding low, or in the danger zone. With the free version of the app, you can add any two indicators on your screen at a time, while the paid version removes this restriction...
By default, PowerLine adds one indicator for battery charge to the top edge of your screen. The app runs in the background and can be set to start on boot. To edit the indicator, tap battery. You can tap the plus sign to add a new indicator. In the screenshot below, you can see the blue line at the top indicating the battery charge.

Dialapp For Android Magically Predicts Who You Want To Call Next Based On Context

Want your phone to predict who you are going to call whenever you pick it up to call someone? If your phone is running Android, you’ll be delighted to learn about Dialapp - an innovative call log and dialer application that comes with quite a few surprises. Dialapp is designed to predict the person you want to call based on your context, which can consist of time, calendar, location, conversations and so on, using your Google account to deliver these contextual predictions. So whenever you hit the call log, the name of the person you wanted to call “magically floats to the top”. The app doesn’t explicitly explain the technique it uses to make these predictions, but it can be pretty accurate. Details to follow after the jump...
To get started, you need to sign in using your Google account. The app allows you to integrate your Google+ and phone contacts. You can also use Dialapp without signing in to your account, but that would like totally defeat the purpose it’s designed for, since it won’t be able to make contextual predictions.

Track Stocks & Maintain An Investment Portfolio On Android With JStock

The finance section of any newspaper, be it online or print, isn’t something that everyone reads or understands, but Stock market information, specifically the changes in stock prices is often used as a measure of a company’s current position in the market, and such information is critical for every investor. If you follow stocks, JStock is an app that can help you  keep up with fluctuating stock prices for different stocks being traded across the world. The application previously only had a desktop version for Windows , OS X & Linux, but now it has gone mobile with an app for Android, allowing you to keep up on the go. You get a large number of stock indices to choose from, and the app historically track the changes in their prices. You can also maintain your own portfolio of stocks you’ve purchased to measure your capital gains or losses as the prices fluctuate...

DuckDuckGo Brings Its Anonymous Search & Rich Results To Android & iOS

After the latest revelations by Edward Snowden regarding NSA’s project PRISM, everyone has suddenly become more privacy-conscious. Almost all tech giants have admitted that they have made the data of their users available to authorities on several occasions. Even if a service doesn’t provide data to the government, your private information is rarely 100% safe due to the threat of server raids and hacking. This is why DuckDuckGo has suddenly become more important as a search engine than it has ever been. Unlike other search engines, DuckDuckGo offers truly secure and anonymous searching, since it doesn’t save any of your data at the backend. Probably to take full advantage of the PRISM leaks, the search engine has come up with official apps of its own for both iOS and Android. You can use DuckDuckGo on your web browser (or even as the default search engine in mobile Safari) of course, but DuckDuckGo Search & Stories makes the whole process really convenient. An added bonus is the app’s ability to double up as a news reader, accumulating the latest stories from around the web...

Vine For Android Gets Front Facing Camera Support & Upload Manager

Instagram introduce 15 second videos a very short while back, effectively taking away the ‘Instagram for videos’ title from Twitter’s Vine that had started the whole short video sharing craze with its 6 second long videos. While Vine has Twitter’s user base to count on for users and growth, Instagram has both its own and Facebook’s users who are clamoring to join it and upload their 15 second videos. Naturally, this means stiff competition for Vine, which is very likely going to fight back. It has just released an update for its Android app, which now supports the front facing camera on your device and has an upload manager for reviewing failed uploads. The app has also added support for more devices, made some improvements to the settings and tweaked the camera to load faster...
Vine now supports the front facing camera on your device. Tap the camera icon at the top to open your camera and you will notice a new button (it looks something like a refresh icon). Tap it to toggle which camera is in use. You will record a video the same way you used to when using the default camera i.e. by tapping and holding the screen. The upload and share procedure also remains the same.

Hide, Passcode-Protect & Backup Photos & Videos On Android With Sectos

Photos on your phone are usually only kept secure by any lock that you’ve placed on the screen itself. Once the screen is unlocked, your photos can be accessed easily from the default Gallery app.Sectos aims to offers security for the photos you take on your Android device. Apart from letting you set a passcode for viewing the photos, the app also hides them from the Gallery and renders them inaccessible from any file manager you might have installed. Pictures can be organized into albums and edited from within the app. You can add a photo to Sectos from the app itself or from the photos app. The app automatically locks itself each time you switch to another app, ensuring no one can access your media files without entering the correct password pattern. For ease of access, the app lets you ‘call’ it, i.e., open it by dialing a number in the phone app. There is also Dropbox support to keep your secure photos backed up to the cloud...
Before you start hiding your photos, you will need to set up a password pattern and, optionally, specify an email address that can be used to recover a forgotten password.

How To Check-In For Friends On Foursquare & Allow Them To Check You In

In every group of friends, there is always that one person who is really into using a lot of social networks, and can be counted on for updating their status or checking-in whenever you go out. While broadcasting that you had a good time at a café on Facebook or Twitter is solely for bragging purposes, Foursquare is a bit different;  the popular location-based service and others like it have been designed to let users help their friends in real life, by providing tips related to different places. Apart from that, Foursquare makes the whole experience fairly competitive too, by giving badges and making people mayors of different places based on their check-ins. Foursquare has a lot of casual users who only perform check-ins at infrequent intervals. Thanks to the app’s latest update though, the chances of your forgetting to check-in to a place have diminished a great deal, because now even your friends can perform check-ins on your behalf...

One-Click Install CWM Or TWRP Without A Reboot Using Recovery Tools

Flashing a custom recovery on your Android device, such as ClockworkMod or TWRP, doesn’t take much time if you’ve got all the required tools at hand and a little bit of spare time. However, the process can be quite cumbersome to new Android users who aren’t familiar with technical Android terms, ADB commands and/or the procedure to flash recovery image via fastboot. Thanks to XDA-developers forum member DsLNeXuS, we have a nifty little Android app that makes flashing a custom recovery on your device a one-click-process. Recovery Tools allows flashing a custom recovery without even rebooting the device or using any ADB command. Why would you need it when it can be done using ROM Manager or GooManager, you ask? With this application, you can flash both ClockworkMod Recovery and TWRP (one at a time, of course), though the available options may vary from device to device. Recovery Tools already supports a wide-array of Android phones and tablets, and comprises of a very minimal and intuitive design. Details to follow after the jump.
The application only works on rooted Android devices. Everything is entirely done within the app; no rebooting into bootloader or using ADB/fastboot commands required. A major benefit it offers is that if you have CWM installed and need to switch to TWRP for something, you can simply use the app to quickly flash TWRP and the next thing you know, you’ll be booting into TWRP! It works equally well the other way round too.

CloudCube Allows Combined Management Of Google Drive, SkyDrive, Dropbox & More On Android

The file sharing and cloud storage space is very crowded, but many users still find it perfectly manageable to use two or more services at once. Cloud aggregator apps make this all the more easier and there’s a fairly large number of such apps available for just about every platform. CloudCube is yet another cloud aggregator app for Android that allows you to connect your Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, SkyDrive, and Yandex Disk, letting you access files in each account from a single app. Users can not only browse and save files from these accounts to their local storage, but also upload files to any one of the connected accounts. CloudCube lets you upload individual files or entire folders at once and has a dedicated tab for monitoring file upload activity. The app indexes all files on your cloud and local storage and offers a central search feature that allows you to search for files and folders from the connected storage accounts...
After installing the app, the first thing you want to do is connect your cloud drives. Tap ‘Available storages’ to add your first account, and the actions button at the bottom to add additional accounts after that. You can switch between different account by opening the navigation drawer. For each account, you can enable two-way upload/download as well as automatic sync, and also manually download new files added to an account to your local storage.

Soundwave Offers Social Music Discovery & Auto-Scrobbling On iOS & Android

Like the recently covered #nwplyng, most scrobbling apps force users to manually keep track of the songs they listen to, or scrobble only the songs played within the app. This might be fine for those who don’t rely on multiple song sources but for everyone else, sharing that way isn’t likely to reflect their true taste in music. Soundwave is a new app that solves this problem by tapping into multiple sources and automatically scrobbling all the tracks played on your device. Another big advantage of Soundwave is that the app is available on both Android and iOS, increasing the potential user base. Soundwave can even be used as a proper social network, since it has an elaborate follow system of its own. You won’t have to rely solely on the shares from people you follow for music discovery, as the app is capable of combining data from various sources to come up with interesting song suggestions...

TWRP Manager App Released For TeamWin Custom Android Recovery

One of the really spectacular things about Android is that users can flash all sorts of custom ROMs, kernels, themes and mods on it through its recovery environment. Don’t like the stock ROM? Fret not! You can always flash CyanagenMod, MIUI, AOKP or Paranoid Android instead. Don’t fancy that ugly Samsung Touchwiz? We neither, so grab a flashable theme and get rid it. Even if you don’t use recovery for flashing anything, it still has other uses like backing up and restoring a complete image of your phone.  When it comes to flashing anything on Android, ClockworkMod Recovey is perhaps the first to come to mind because not even a couple of years ago, it was the sole mainstream custom recovery available for most Android devices. But things have changed quite a bit since then, with TWRP  (short for TeamWin Recovery Project) fast becoming the custom recovery of choice for many. Like ClockworkMod has ROM Manager that lets you schedule recovery operations from within Android that are to be performed automatically in recovery later, TWRP users now have TWRP Manager that does the same for devices running TWRP recovery. And what’s more – it boasts an interface identical to that of TWRP itself too!!!

Scatter Offers Auto P2P File & Clipboard Sync Between PC & Android

Sending files between two computers, whether they’re both Macs or PCs, is quite easy; you can share them over your local network, use a file sharing service or P2P file transfer apps, or simply transfer them using a USB flash drive. Same goes for sharing files between computers and mobile devices, but sharing text is a whole different story. Unless you have something like Messages and iMessage as is the case with Macs and iOS devices, sharing text between computers and mobile devices isn’t all that easy.Scatter is a free app for Windows and Android (coming soon to iOS) that is an all-in-one solution for sharing clipboard content and files between a PC and an Android device. Not only does the app make P2P file and data sharing simple, it also syncs your data between two or more devices...
To start using Scatter, you need to install it on at least two devices. To sync data, you must sign up for a free Scatter account. After signing up, simply sign in with the same account on all devices that you want to sync and send data between. If you’re syncing between an Android device and a PC, the first thing you want to do is visit the app’s Control Panel. Here, you can select the location for saving incoming files, limit how much clipboard content is captured and synced how long the files and data in your inbox are kept, and view your connected devices.

Instagram Gets Vine-Like 15-Second Video Sharing On Android & iOS

Even since it was released, Vine has been gaining popularity at a decent pace, but since Facebook and Twitter have been fierce rivals for quite a few years, it wasn’t likely that the service was going to have an unchecked run for too long. In a clever move, Facebook has decided to put the loyal user base of Instagram to good use in their bid to stay relevant in the video sharing market. The latest Instagram update isn’t exactly like Vine, since the videos you create using it are not fixed, six-second looping animations. Instead, Instagram videos can be up to 15 seconds long. The biggest plus, however, is that you can use the beautiful Instagram filters with your videos as well. To top it off, you are sure to appreciate the undo capabilities while shooting videos, too...

Dolphin Browser For Android Gets New UI, Web Store & Better Speed Dial

The developers behind the ever-popular Dolphin web browser for Android have rolled out an update to the app, bumping it up to version 10. The latest release sports a complete UI overhaul, improved search, an all new Web App store, and enhanced speed dial integration with support for up to an impressive 60+ shortcuts. It’s a substantial update and an important release by the company that has been hard at work to refine users’ browsing experience ever since 2010 – the time when Dolphin went out on Google Play for the first time. Let’s take a closer look at what the latest release has brought to the table in terms of features, functionality and, of course, looks...
If you currently are or have previously been a Dolphin user, you are surely going to welcome the change. And even if it’s your first run with the app, just get ready to be blown away by its flattened design and snappy internet browsing. The obvious mainstay of the app is its revamped UI. I’ve never been a fan of flashy textures anyway, so I found Dolphin’s new minimal looks even more appealing. Tabs look fantastic, navigation is intuitive and the whole design just looks better. Pressing menu now pops up a horizontal bar at the bottom where you can perform actions like exiting the app, opening bookmarks or accessing the settings.

Rockmelt Brings Its Personalized Mobile Reader To Android

Back when we covered Rockmelt for iOS in December last year, the app left us utterly impressed with its distinct approach towards user-curated, personalized content from around the social media, along with Rockmelt’s own tailored stories gathered from popular sources. Despite initially launching as a socially focused web browser, the app eventually turned into something more like a Flipboard-inspired service with a similar design language. Up until now, it was only available on the iOS platform, leaving the almost billion-strong Android user base in the dust. Looks like the company has finally listened to its followers as today marks the release of  Rockmelt on Android, and it looks absolutely awesome with a drastically revamped and much improved UI, loads of features and impressive design...

Collaborative Multimedia Note-Taking Service Moxtra Comes To Android

Earlier this year, an ambitious group of former employees from WebEx – an on-demand collaboration, online meeting, video and web conferencing company by Cisco – launched their Evernote-esque project by the name of Moxtra. It is basically a cloud-based virtual binder for sharing and collaborating on all sorts of content. It allows groups to collect and collaboratively work on videos, pictures, documents, notes etc. – something that a lot of services have already been offering for a while now. Back in January (the time when Moxtra was initially launched), it was only rolled out as iPad and web apps but after almost six months since it inception, the service has finally expanded to other platforms as well, including desktop and Android. Akin to its iPad counterpart, Moxtra for Android not just works great, but also looks fairly elegant and intuitive...

MPme Radio Now On Android; Lets You Find Live Radio Stations By Genre, Artist & Song

Radio apps and services are beginning to look as common as file sharing services but with music, it’s always a question of taste and whether or not an app can give you what you like. For me, Pandora has no parallel as far as online radio stations are concerned and I’ve found great music there. Though that doesn’t mean there aren’t any other worthwhile options around. MPme Radio lets you listen to music from radio stations grouped by genres, and while initially launched as an iOS app, it has now made its way to Android as well. You can either search for the right station by picking your favorite genre, or browse the ‘On Air’ radio stations to find what you like. Artists and radio stations you ‘favorite’ can then be quickly accessed and played any time from the ‘Favorites’ tab. In case of your favorite artists, the app searches for stations that are playing songs by them and automatically redirects you to them. From our tests, it appears that some stations have ads while others don’t. Listeners can share songs and also buy the ones they like from Google Play Store for offline playback...
The app sports the latest version of Holo UI that’s developed according to Google’s guidelines, and looks impressive to say the least. When you first launch the app, you land on the ‘On Air’ tab by default, which lists all stations that are playing songs live at the moment. You can switch to specific stations by opening the navigation drawer and switching to the ‘Genres’ tab...

How To Send Video Messages To Your Offline Contacts In Skype

Voicemail lets you deflect calls when you’re busy in order to be able to access the recorded messages later.

Skype has just added the feature and you can now send video messages to your Skype contacts even when they’re offline. On free accounts, a video message can be 3 minutes long, but with a premium account, users can send video messages of any length.

Identify & Scrobble Music The Social Way On Android & iOS With #nwplyng

Although Shazam has gained a host of social features with the passage of time, it is still a far cry from some of the services that are designed exclusively for sharing your taste in music with friends. #nwplyngcombines scrobbling and song identification in a really organized manner, but there is more to this app than just that. There are a number of ways you get to share your choices with your friends. You can search for a song on YouTube and post it to your feeds, identify it using your device’s speaker, or simply enjoy the tracks shared by people you follow. #nwplyng is available for both Android and iOS, and works identically on both platforms. Other than a neat commenting system, #nwplyng also offers a collection of badges that can be unlocked by accomplishing different targets related to the app’s usage...

CPU-Z Comes To Android; Shows Detailed SoC, System, Battery & Sensor Stats

For as long as one can recall, CPU-Z has been one of those tools that are considered must-have for any PC enthusiast, whether an avid gamer or a graphics guru. The popular desktop tool provides detailed information about your system such as processor make and model, clock speed, voltage, fabrication technology, bus speed, cache, motherboard, RAM size and much more. It’s about time this nifty little tool has landed on the Android platform as well. CPU-Z for Android is still in beta, but can tell you every bit of info about your device that you could ever seek. Akin to its desktop counterpart, the mobile app also sports a barebone UI that focuses solely on showing you detailed system information about your SOC, system, battery and various sensors in its flat-out tabbed interface...
Navigation between the tabs is fairly snappy, and the app itself is well optimized for most devices. The SOC (System on Chip) tab displays CPU and GPU info including CPU name, architecture, number of cores, fabrication process, clock speed, cpu load, as well as GPU vendor and renderer. The System tab is also quite elaborate and carries information including model, manufacturer, board, display size and resolution, total and available RAM and internal storage etc...

Social Media Video Curating App Vodio Now Available On Android

Thousands of videos are uploaded online across different service each day; some go viral, others are important because of their subject matter and end up on your must-watch list. With so much video content being uploaded and shared daily, it’s extremely difficult to keep up with what’s necessary to watch and what’s viral, and still get your daily dose of video entertainment. YouTube handles this well by allowing you to subscribe to channels and also showing you what’s trending or viral when you visit it, but it’s still  not enough because not all important videos will go viral. Vodio is a fairly popular mobile app that takes care of all this; it allows you to follow channels that are based on interests such as technology or sports, and at the same time, lets you connect your Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube accounts so you can continue to view trending videos from your network. The app takes it upon itself to find the videos you need to watch, and its list of videos is constantly updated so that no matter what time of the day you check it, you’re always presented with the latest content. Initially exclusive to iOS, the app is now available on Android as well...
Vodio has a simple and easy to browse interface. Swipe left or right to switch to the next channel, or swipe from bottom to top to view the channel switching tray and pick the channel you want to watch videos from. Each video thumbnail shows who uploaded it and how old it is, in addition to its length.

Google Cloud Print For Android Allows Remote Printing On The Go

Printers are one of the most useful computer peripherals around, but they’re also, quite possibly, one of the most frustrating to configure. Then there are also the problems of managing multiple printers on a network, and making sure they are all running fine and ready to accept print jobs. Google, however, has made printing considerably simpler with Google Cloud Print that has been available in Google Chrome across desktop, iOS and Android. Though if you want to print something outside Chrome from your Android device, the new Cloud Print app that has just debuted on the Google Play Store will take care of that. The app allow you to print anything from documents to photos from your Android device...
Once installed, the Cloud Print app will show up as one of the options under the ‘Share’ menu. Just open whatever you want to print and select the Cloud Print option from the Share menu, and you will switch to the app itself (pretty much like adding an attachment to an email). The first thing you must do is select which printer you want to print from. Users of Google Cloud Print will know that both cloud printers and classic printers can be added to your Google account, and the list of printers you see will include both. An alternative way of printing files is to tap the printer icon in Cloud Print and select the files you want to print.
