Dear Developer, This Is Why I Won’t Buy Your App

In my line of work, I get to test a lot of apps. I hunt for them, I judge their usefulness, I try them out, and then when I find an app works well enough or addresses a real problem, I review it for our readers. It sounds like a fun job and as I’ve continued to test and review more and more apps, I’ve picked up on tell-tale signs of what makes a good app. But I’m not overly clever to pick up on these signs; it’s a by-product of experience and where I can identify if an app is good or bad just by looking at the screenshots and reading a brief description, it isn’t a foolproof check. Developers are just as clever (if not more) at the game  than I am and they give me the slip. It’s times like this that the true test of a good app comes down to one thing, and one thing alone; features...

Sleep Better Tells You How Well You’re Sleeping

Scientists still debate over why we sleep. There is no doubt that we need to sleep but the effects of sleep are simply amazing and worth every bit of research that is done about it. While scientists are figuring out the many mysteries of sleep, the REM cycle, why we dream, sleepwalk, talk in our sleeps, and that one time when Professor Utonium began robbing toy stores in his sleep, we wake up to the shrill call of our alarms wondering why it feels as though we haven’t rested at all. Sleep Better is an iOS and Android app by Runtastic, a popular name in heath and fitness apps, and it helps analyze your sleep patterns telling you how efficient your slumber was. Sleep Better integrates with iOS 8’s health app...

Oops! AppLock Uses A Volume Key Pattern To Prevent Access To Apps [Android]

Android Lollipop, when it finally rolls out to the masses, has a very interesting and exceptionally useful feature that lets you create guest accounts on your phone. This guest account has restricted access and is a great way to hand your device off to a child or a friend without fear of them poking around or deleting anything important. Until it rolls out, and it might be a considerably long time before it does for some devices, we will continue to keep our personal items safe some other way. Oops! AppLock is a free Android app that locks apps you select. The key to unlocking the apps and gaining access to them is what sets it apart. Where normally, users would fiddle with swipes or taps on the screen, codes, or patterns, this app unlocks from the volume keys...

What To Do If Android Device Is Not Listed After ADB Devices Command

A good while ago, we did a post on what ADB is and how to install it. If you’re even slightly adventurous with your Android device, you probably know what ADB is and why it’s so important. Overclocking? Xpose? Custom ROM? Rooting? It’s only possible after you have ADB installed on your desktop. Now, installing it is pretty simple and you need only read our guide to confirm it yourself but installing it is really the easy part. As you start on your journey to rooting an Android device, learning the terminologies, and downloading the seriously large files needed to modify your device, you will also encounter the many odd errors that occur seemingly without reason or cause. Some of these errors effectively stop you from going ahead with whatever you’r doing and you end up looking for a solution to them instead. One such problem is when the adb devices command executed in the Command Prompt doesn’t list your device when previously, it did so. Here’s a quick solution to fix it...

Here Are Some Security Improvements In Android 5.0 Lollipop

Android Lollipop was rumoured to roll out on November 3, 2014. The new Nexus devices are now available and those who get their hands on one will be among the first to use the stable Lollipop OS. Android updates are not like iOS updates; they roll out over extended time periods that are months long, and they aren’t made universally available to all devices running Android. Many device owners will wait a considerably long time for an update to become available. This is a given when you decide to use Android but with Lollipop, there is more excitement and anticipation surrounding this release and you may be wondering why this update, of all the others, is such a big deal. The shortest answer we can give you is Security. Android Lollipop is big on it and we’re detailing just what the new security features are...
