MyColorScreen's Themer is already an impressively powerful app for making your phone look cool. But for something that's supposed to encourage customization, it's surprisingly limiting - you can choose from a wide variety of user-created homescreens, but there aren't many options for tweaking them. With the latest update, Themer gives end users the ability to add some flair of their own via icon packs.
Themer should work with the vast majority of icon packs that are already in the Play Store and designed for more typical launchers like Nova and Apex.
What were you doing exactly a year ago? Tweeting a picture of your food? Complaining about the weather? With Timehop, you can look back on past-you with a kind of self-awareness that, quite frankly, might be a little depressing.
Back in the day, people used to go on runs with nothing but a loose pair of shorts and whichever shoes were comfy. Now such an idea feels downright preposterous without earbuds, music, podcasts, a fitness band, or an activity tracking app. Runtastic's offering is one of the first that comes to mind, and today it's getting bumped up to version 5.0. Runners, here's the promotional video.
In an announcement on its official blog today, Twitter said that "photos just got more social." What has actually happened is that social just got more photos. In an update to both iOS and Android mobile apps, Twitter will allow users to tag each other in photos, with the ability to upload four photos at once starting on iOS and coming to Android and the web "soon."
Users will be able to tag up to ten other people in their photos, while maintaining all 140 characters for brief, micro-blogged commentary.
It's easy to forget that Amazon has cloud storage products on Android now that Google has started pushing the envelope with Drive and Play Music. Amazon does offer its own photo backup app connected to a free 5GB Cloud Drive block. The app wasn't great, but now that's being addressed with a significant update.
Cerberus Anti-Theft is the type of app that users install for peace of mind. The service offers the ability to track a device's location, record audio through its microphone, lock it, or wipe it remotely in the chance that it falls into the wrong hands. Unfortunately, this line of defense could be a person's worse nightmare if their account were compromised. That's why it was no small deal when Cerberus recently sent out this email to some of its users, alerting them that a number of usernames and passwords were stolen in a recent data breach.
Few -if any- password managers have gained a following quite like LastPass. It's secure, extensively cross-platform, and easy to use. When up-and-coming competitor PasswordBox hit the scene last month with the ability to insert login credentials directly into native apps, it left many LastPass users anxiously requesting the same feature. The wait is finally over as LastPass for Android has been updated to enable automatic fill-in for apps and Chrome.
LastPass blocks screenshots within the app, thus the photos
Like PasswordBox, LastPass is using the Accessibility Services API in Android to enable automatic fill-in.
The Aviate launcher has been in alpha/beta for so long, it feels like a Google project. After all, the software runs solidly and has garnered millions of installs. Yet as an app in active development, the new features continue to roll in. Today's update adds badge counts for a handful of apps, including missed phone calls, text messages, Gmail messages, and apps that support notification badges in TouchWiz.
Being a student is expensive. Unless Mom and Dad have this one covered, you have to foot the cost of classes, books, and food with just scholarships and loans to help. The positive side? You can now get a Spotify Premium account for 50% off. That's right - all you can eat music for $4.99. It's like a meal plan you can actually afford to have.
