Moborobo Is An Insanely Powerful Desktop Manager For Your Android (Or Other) Device

Google has never really made it a priority to give Android a desktop syncing and management client like iTunes is for the iPhone. For the most part, it hasn't been missed that much. Google can perform cloud-based backups of app data, contacts, email, photos, music, and just about everything else you might need. If you use all of its services, of course. Moborobo, on the other hand, is a beautiful client that does all of that and more right from your desktop.

One of the nicest features of this device is that it can operate entirely via a WiFi connection, so whether you're backing up/transferring contacts, managing your apps, or fiddling with your photos, you can do it all without ever plugging in your device.

T-Mobile HTC One S Review: The Future Is Now

An Android phone is like a Leatherman Tool. It does a lot of things - without a doubt, a triumph of function over form. Android is the world's most versatile mobile operating system, the most tweakable, the most adaptable, and the most fully-featured. It just does more than any other comparable product out there. But if Android is a Leatherman, the iPhone is the basic Swiss Army Knife - compact, simple, iconic, and good enough for the vast majority of people, even if it does do a little less.

Building on that analogy, Android users, even die-hard fans, actually look at their phones more like tools.

Samsung Files Trademarks For Galaxy Metrix, Velvet, and Legend; Motorola For Electrify Icon

Looks like Samsung and Motorola have been hanging out at the local trademark office again, as both companies have registered names of some upcoming devices.

Samsung registered three new names (because we know how much they love to release at least one new Galaxy device every month week): the Galaxy Metrix, Velvet, and Legend (cough HTC cough). Aside from that, we only know that all three names were registered as "goods and services: mobile telephones, smartphones." Surprise, surprise.

Motorola also trademarked the name of an upcoming device: the "Electrify Icon," which can be assumed to be a sequel to last year's Electrify smartphone (aka Photon 4G).

Draw Something Updates Something, Now You Can Say Something, Undo Something, And Refresh Something

To say that literally every person on the entire planet is playing Draw Something right now would be an understatement. So, when OMGPOP updates its beloved drawing game, we take notice. Now, users are able to comment on drawings, undo their last line, and can use the now-familiar "Pull down to refresh" gesture to update their list of current games. Great!

The features make the already-popular game even easier to use. The undo, in particular, will be a welcome change to anyone who's ever drawn something imperfectly all the time every time. I'm sure there are at least a couple of you out there like that.

Google Updates The TV & Movies App For Google TV, Adds Personalized Suggestions, More Show Info

Google TV still exists. It's important to be reminded once in a while because, while Google TV promised to be our deliverer from the evil world of crappy cable box interfaces, so far the company has yet to deliver. Today's update to the TV & Movies app, though, is a step in the right direction. For starters, Google has finally done what we've all wanted since there were more than three channels: now you can see what shows are on just your favorite channels on a single screen.

Using Google TV to augment your existing cable/satellite service, you've always been able to add your favorite channels to a special tab.

[For Developers] ADT 20/SDK Tools r20 Previews Are Here - Brand New Property Editor(!), NDK Support, Performance Improvements, Bug Fixes Galore

As an Android developer, I like to keep tabs on the tools I use every day, especially ones as important as ADT for Eclipse and SDK Tools. As was the case several times before, the Android team in charge of both of them posted previews of upcoming releases of ADT 20 and SDK Tools r20, available for manual download ahead of the final releases.

Yup, you heard me correctly - 20, not 18 or 19. Even though the previous major release was 17, 18 followed up shortly after with some minor changes, and 19, even more minor, wasn't even posted to the downloads page (see here for the reason).

Motorola Droid 4 Set To Receive A Small Bug Fix OTA To Build Number 6.13.219

Looks like the RAZR Twins aren't the only ones set to get an OTA from Big Red - a changelog just hit the support docs page for the Droid 4 that outlines a small bug fix/enhancement update for the fourth-generation slider:

2012-04-18_14h25_41

If you just can't wait to get some update action on your device, Droid-Life already has the 18MB update available for download. Since it's an official build, it will break root, but rumor has it that Voodoo Rootkeeper is letting users keep root access once the update is finished.

Flashing Instructions:

  • Download the file to your SD card.
  • Turn phone off.
