Webkey For Android: Take Full Control Of Your Android Device Using A Web Interface From Your Computer

Everyone knows that smartphones are awesome, but it’s hard to beat using a large screen and full keyboard to control a device. Developers Peter Mora and Zoltan Papp believe they have come up with a compelling compromise: Webkey, for Android. Webkey allows users with a rooted Android device to text or call contacts, view SD card contents, and more - all from a web based interface.

Webkey Final 4

The Interface

Webkey's interface leaves a lot to be desired, as it is more bare and utilitarian than polished and perfected.

The barren desert that is gaming on Android has been with us for as long as the platform itself, and it appears that it is only now changing, with the release of games like Angry Bird and Fruit Ninja.

[App Of The Week] DiskUsage Helps Uncover Your Phone's Internal And SD Card Fat Deposits

Camera ZOOM FX Review + Giveaway

  

When it comes to photo editing on the fly, there are usually two kinds of apps: those intended for mindless fun, and those intended for actual work. Without a doubt, Camera ZOOM FX falls into the latter category, along with its mediocre UI, strange (though not necessarily poor) selection of effects, and (relatively) low price tag. So is it worth a look? A purchase? Read on for the full Android Police review.
