Intuit Releases A New TurboTax App With Modern Looks To Help You Manage This Year's Taxes

Intuit has released a new version of TurboTax into the Play Store that shouldn't look jarring on your Lollipop-powered device. Despite focusing on something as dense and complicated as taxes, the app is rich with color and comes with plenty of whitespace. This is about as friendly as taxes can look.

[Deal Alert] Get The PowerA Moga Pro For $37.49 (25% Off) And Free Shipping With Coupon Code

The PowerA Moga Pro is a step up from the already adequate Moga controller. A little bit bigger, with a better grip and an included tablet stand make this iteration a worthy successor. Assuming you can make do with the limited selection of supported titles (or don't mind working with some key mappers to make it work yourself), that is.

This Weekend, File Your Taxes For Free Using TurboTax For Android Tablets - A $62+ Value

Haven't filed your taxes yet? Maybe it's a good thing you waited, because this weekend only TurboTax is offering Android users a free Basic or Deluxe return through their Android app, including the Kindle Fire version on the Amazon Appstore. This includes a federal and state return (savings of $87 for Deluxe, $107 for Premier, $127 for Home and Business).

The catch? You have to start your return (from scratch, if you've already begun in the online or desktop versions) between now and April 1st, and use the Android app to do the whole thing (you can't start in the Android app then finish online).

TurboTax Launches SnapTax - A W2-Scanning Tax Filing Android App

Nobody likes to do their taxes but, unfortunately, the tax season is almost upon us, and I'm dreading and counting down the days until April 18th (this year's tax day is not the 15th). However, those of you who have relatively simple taxes have a new option to file this year, one that wouldn't even make you touch a computer - TurboTax SnapTax for Android.

If you've made less than $80K, the income was all a result of W2s, interest, or unemployment, and if you don't claim any dependents or real estate, SnapTax is for you. Not only can you e-file your Federal and State taxes straight from your phone but snap pictures of your W2s too - just like those mobile banking apps help you deposit checks, SnapTax helps you scan your income form.

AT&T Motorola Bravo And Flipside Now Available For $130/$100 From AT&T, $0 From Amazon And Wirefly

No matter what you say about AT&T (i.e. how long can they keep locking down sideloading no their Android phones?), at least their commitment to Android has definitely picked up compared to only a few months ago.

Today, as expected, 2 more new Android phones are available on AT&T, namely Motorola Backflip and Motorola Flipout.

Motorola Bravo

The Bravo is a slightly more upscale of the two, but still fails to impress me in any way other than being DLNA-enabled. To refresh your memory, here are the Bravo specs:

  • TI OMAP 3610 800 MHz processor
  • No physical keyboard
  • 512 MB RAM, 2 GB ROM, 2GB microSD preinstalled
  • 3.7", 854 x 480 FWVGA screen
  • 802.11 b/g/n WiFi
  • MOTOBLUR
  • 3MP camera with auto-focus (ugh)
  • DLNA-enabled
  • 1540 mAh battery
  • Android 2.1

The Bravo is available from AT&T for $129.99, but also showed up on Amazon for $0.01 and Wirefly for free.

Deal Alert: T-Mobile's Samsung Vibrant $0.01 Again On Amazon, This Time Including Upgrades For Existing Customers

T-Mobile's Samsung Vibrant is still a pretty hot phone, but with the release of the G2 and the upcoming myTouch 4G, Amazon decided to throw a blowout sale for only 1 penny again, just like it did back in August.

This time, however, existing customers upgrading their handsets and extending their contracts are no longer left in the dust. As always, no taxes or shipping fees are involved. But you already knew that, didn't you - it's Amazon after all.

And I still remember the time when $150 was considered a good deal...

[Deal Alert] T-Mobile G2 Drops To A Low Tax-Free $99.99 At Wirefly

Wirefly, notorious for launching the best mobile deals on the web, did not disappoint us today, which, if you remember, is the official T-Mobile G2 launch date.
