If you've ever received a notification and thought to yourself, "I really wish my phone would play some colorful and fun animation every time I get a message," then there's no doubt that Pops is the app for you.
Calling itself the "ringtone for the smartphone generation," Pops is an app that lets you customize notifications for certain apps, namely Gmail, SMS, Facebook, and Twitter, with full-screen animations. To get a better idea of what it's all about, here is a video showcasing most of its features:
Samsung and NVIDIA joined forces today to unveil the newest member of the Tegra 2 family, the Galaxy R. As Samsung's newest addition to the Galaxy line, The 'R' is sure to make its namesake proud, with some pretty powerful specs under the hood:
4.19 inch WVGA Super Clear LCD display
1GHz Tegra 2 processor
5MP rear camera, 2MP front cam
8GB built-in storage with microSD slot
Android 2.3 with TouchWiz
Of course, since it's packing the Tegra 2 processor, not only will it bring outstanding performance to the table, but access to exclusive games and other apps in The Tegra Zone.
It looks like Facebook is putting its purchase of group messaging app Beluga to good use, as it just announced Messenger, a mobile app for Android and iOS that acts as a sort of extension to Chat. In addition to the aforementioned group chat ability, Messenger's goal is also to simplify all your conversations, whether it be through Chat, Messages, email, or text. Photo and location sharing options are also available.
Gmail for Android hasn't received much love lately, but Google definitely hasn't forgotten about it. The new version 2.3.5 (curiously, it matches the latest Gingerbread release version), which showed up tonight, brings a host of new features, including one that I was *just* thinking of yesterday after clicking the "Show Pictures" button for the 1800th time.
The new features are:
Save bandwidth and battery by only syncing priority mail
Use label notifications to mash up filters, labels, and ringtones
Remember ‘Show Pictures’ for senders
Turn off sticky message actions in landscape or all orientations
Better TalkBalk support for accessibility
As I mentioned, my favorite is definitely the sticky "Show Pictures" setting, which means I won't have to click the annoying button in every email that I receive from all the deals sites on a daily basis.
As if Amazon hasn't already helped make our mobile life easy enough, today it released AmazonFresh for Android into the Market. If you've never heard of AmazonFresh you're not alone, as I hadn't either. As it turns out, it's Amazon's take on grocery shopping, complete with fresh produce and home delivery.
The Android app looks to be a key companion to the website, offering many of the same features, including complete grocery listings, doorstep and attended home delivery, past purchase access, barcode search, order placement, and the ability to edit an order prior to delivery.
