The life of a mobile application developer is a tedious one – they're not only responsible for building apps but also ensuring they work on as many of the 900 million Google-certified Android devices that have been activated over the last five years as possible. Of course, Android OS versions start to die out over time, and new versions – along with new handsets – emerge, making this a never-ending cycle of test-update-test-update.

We've looked at Moborobo and all it has to offer once before, but the team has been hard at work bringing new features and tools to the already-useful application. While it has always been a full-fledged Android management suite for end users, the new features really focus on bringing increased functionality for phone vendors, telecom operators, and the like.

For starters, Moborobo makes it incredibly easy to transfer contacts from iOS to Android and vice versa – a perfect solution for both phone vendors and end users who are switching platforms.

We briefly touched yesterday on Bitdefender's new privacy protection utility Clueful, but today we'd like to take a closer look at everything the app has to offer, along with what makes it stand out from the crowd.

For those who may not have caught yesterday's post (where we're also giving away two Galaxy S4 i9500s and two HTC Ones), Clueful is best described as a "personal privacy consultant" that offers full details of what your apps are actually doing behind the scenes.

We talked a little bit about Bitdefender's new antivirus offering earlier today in our giveaway post, but now we want to dive a little deeper into the app and explain what makes it good, how it differs from Bitdefender's paid mobile security service, and how it compares to similar antivirus offerings.

The first question you may have is "since Bitdefender's Mobile Security app was already free(mium), why release this?" That answer is actually pretty simple: as of today, the model for Mobile Security has changed to a trial period-only.

Android phone management is a bit of a double-edged sword. And by that, I mean that the devices themselves are self-contained and self-managed. Whereas iOS devices require iTunes to transfer data and the like, Android can do those things without the need to be tethered to a PC. However, that comes at a cost. There's only so much that can be done on the device, and what can be done is sometimes cumbersome.

When it comes to chat applications on Android, there's no shortage of options. We have Gtalk, AIM, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Skype, and many, many others. Still, in a veritable sea of instant messaging options, Samsung has managed to provide a useful, unique, and feature-rich experience with ChatON.

ChatON is Samsung's way of connecting people - regardless of which platform they use - to their friends, family, and coworkers. It works across all major platforms, including Blackberry, Android (of course), iOS, Bada, and even on feature phones.
