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.

Quickoffice Creates Its Own Cloud Drive, Lets You Put Your Documents There... For A[n Unreasonable] Price

A PR just hit our inbox from the guys over at Quickoffice detailing their new "Connect by Quickoffice" app. Since we like Quickoffice, we decided to take a closer look.

[Hands-On] DataSync Is A Quick And Easy Way To Keep Your App Data In Sync Across Multiple Devices

If there's one thing that I hate about having multiple Android devices, it's the inability to easily keep application data synced across them. For example, I love hidden object games and usually play them on my Transformer Prime. But, if I want to play the same game on my Nexus, I can't pick it up from where I left off on my Prime. And that's just lame.

Enter a new [badass] app called DataSync.

Titanium Backup Updated To Version 4.8.4 With Box.net Integration - Finally Gives Those 50GB Accounts A Purpose

Titanium Backup, a widely popular backup solution for root users, got an update today to version 4.8.4, adding a handful of improvements and functions, not the least of which being support for Box.net backup syncing.

If you're wondering why Box.net support is significant, the reason is this: until now, mobile users have had little use for the cloud service's free 50GB account option, which caps the size of uploads at 100MB, and is only compatible with mobile devices (meaning there's no desktop syncing capability).

Microsoft OneNote Arrives On The Android Market, Uses Your SkyDrive To Sync Notes, Is Gorgeous

Google Docs on Android is, to put it politely, crap. While the app was recently updated with a nice tablet interface for viewing documents, editing them has always been kind of a pain, and ugly to boot. Microsoft is stepping up to save the day with their simple, elegant OneNote app for Android. Because screw your expectations.
