MyScript Calculator is essentially the magical oracle of mathematics many of us always wished we had in school. If you're still in school, well, you're probably using the hell out of this app. Either way, good news – MyScript Calculator just got an update with a ton of new stuff.
Samsung Milk is probably the most straightforward music streaming app I've ever used - and that's exactly the kind of response Samsung is looking to get from it.
Wacky name aside, Milk is an interesting, well-designed app that is set up to get you listening to music as fast as possible. No ads, the absolute minimum amount of loading time, and a music selection interface that you'll never struggle to locate.
It has been a long, hard week and you deserve some relaxation time. Well, I'm assuming you do. If you've been slacking off all week, please disregard. Go pay full price for your apps. Everyone else, read on.
MTV wants you to know that its new MTV Artists app is now available in the Play Store, and that the offering makes it easy to discover musicians you haven't yet grown accustomed to. It contains thousands of music videos, free tracks, and a sizable selection of photos highlighting artists doing what they do best. You can also use it to discover the name of a track by letting the app listen to a sample of the song.
Despite the silly name, Samsung's Milk Music service seems like a handy thing to have. It offers unlimited ad-free streaming of hundreds of music stations with the ability to create and refine your own stations. However, it's only for Samsung phones. If you have root access, there's a way around that and it's not even very hard.
For Pebble owners, getting good apps and watchfaces has been akin to settling down in the Wild West. There are a handful of websites that do a good job of organizing content and making it easy to install via QR codes, and there's no way we can overlook the immensely useful Pebble apps app available in the Play Store, but these made things no less exciting when, back at this year's CES, the Pebble folks announced that a centralized app store was finally on its way.
If you purchase a Samsung phone in the near future, you're going to have yet another option for listening to music. However, unlike most of the other streaming services, the newly announced Milk Music is free and has no ads. The Milk Music app is live in Google Play and it's compatible with the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Note 2, Note 3,, S4 Active, S4 Mini, and Mega at this time.
Those torrents aren't going to download themselves. You're going to want yourself a solid bittorrent client, and since you're running Android, you're in luck. The BitTorrent app underwent a big 2.0 redesign just last month, and now µTorrent is starting to do the same. It's a much needed change too. Just take a look.
AllCast developer Koushik Dutta has added DLNA server support to his media Chromecasting app. Now anyone with AllCast installed can stream media straight from their DLNA servers to a Chromecast device with minimal effort.
A competing app, LocalCast, recently added the ability to cast network storage files via Samba. The catch was that you had to stream files to your Android device first before sending them out to a Chromecast.
It's hard to overstate my love for AirDroid, the app that hosts a tiny, web-based interface for managing your phone with a desktop browser. And it just keeps getting better: the latest update has added notification mirroring, a la PushBullet and Notifications+. That means that once you enable the setting in AirDroid and Android, you'll get visual indications of incoming notifications on your AirDroid desktop.
Enabling mirroring is easy - you'll get a prompt the first time you start the updated application, so all you have to do is check the box in the linked settings dialog.
