AT&T has just released a new app on the Play Store and this one is dedicated for its THANKS rewards program. Previously, Thanks was part of the myAT&T app, but now it's getting its own dedicated app, because AT&T can't settle for having just one icon in your app drawer. Gee, thanks!
Anyway, the new app lets you view available offers like Ticket Twosdays, presale on concert tickets, and free same-day delivery and setup of your shiny new devices. You can redeem any offer, track it, view a history of your rewards, and get notifications when new offers are available. Read More

Baby monitors are so old school now. You have smart cameras that are tailored for baby monitoring, and if you don't want to buy new gear you can use your phone that's several times more powerful than the regular speaker/microphone combo of a baby monitor. Apps that let you do this are all over the Play Store, but one of the best ones is now discounted to 10 cents. If you have a baby/toddler or you might soon have one, this deal is for you.
Baby Monitor 3G uses two devices (phones, tablets, desktop computers) connected over WiFi, 3G, or LTE, one as a baby station and the other as a parent station. Read More
You wouldn't know it, but you probably only use a small fraction of all the apps that Google has released for Android. Gmail, Chrome, Drive, Maps, Photos, these are only a sliver of Google's portfolio, which is now growing with the addition of one new app: Home service ads.
Like the name suggests, Home service ads is aimed at home professionals, like cleaners, locksmiths, plumbers, painters, and various repair and building businesses. It's under the AdWords Express umbrella and helps handymen and companies get listed and found through a Google search, but also lets them manage communications, quotes, and scheduling with their customers, while also receiving reviews for their work.

I honestly have no idea why AT&T threat defender exists. At first glance, you may think this is yet another horrible security app pushed out by a carrier, but sadly the actual situation is a lot worse. AT&T has essentially created a game out of an advertisement for their security services, and yes it's as bad as you are thinking. Read More
