Nissan And Infiniti Are Going To Start Processing Car Lease Returns With An App

Have you ever found yourself annoyed that returning a leased vehicle to the dealer takes too long and requires too much paper? Well, if you're a car dealership, you actually might find this to be a real hassle. And it's a problem Nissan has decided to tackle in the US. Starting this month, Nissan and Infiniti dealers will use an app (for iOS or Android) to return a customer's leased vehicle to the dealership.

It works pretty simply - the camera takes a picture of the VIN barcode (vehicle identification number), and then sends that to Nissan's backend database to retrieve the lease information.

[New App] TriggerTrap Offers Android Users Remote DSLR Controls For Nearly 300 Camera Models

TriggerTrap, a remote DSLR trigger app that's already made a name for itself among iOS users, hit the Play Store today (with an Amazon App Store launch coming soon), bringing some impressive remote controls to DSLR-toting Android users.

The app, which costs $4.99, offers a surprisingly long list of fully customizable trigger modes from time lapse to distance lap (your camera will take a photo every 30m), long-exposure HDR, star trail mode, bulb ramping timelapse, and a cable release mode that supports exposures up to a full 24 hours.

This isn't the first remote trigger app we've seen for Android – Chainfire introduced DSLR Controller Beta just over a year ago, and Helicon Remote offered similar functionality back in February.

[Screenshots] CyanogenMod Doubles Down On Core Android Functionality, Adds Stopwatch And Timer To Stock Clock App

Part of the fun of custom ROMs is seeing how devoted developers improve upon the stock Android experience. Yesterday, we saw a fantastic example in the graphing calculator that's been released to the Play Store and will soon be integrated into CM10. Now, the team is bringing a new improvement to the stock clock app: stopwatch and timer features.

Screenshots taken during development. Actual features may appear different (in fact, almost certainly in the case of the left shot).

The stopwatch and timer features have already been merged. They may not be rolled out to the nightlies just yet, as we tried out the most recent build and were unable to find them.

[New Game] Judge Dredd Vs Zombies: No Man Is Above The Law, Even If He’s Already Dead

In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a new Judge Dredd movie coming out starring Karl Urban (who should know a thing or two about remakes… darn it, he’s an actor, not a doctor). To build up some mobile hype, a new game has hit the Google Play Store. And since it is a mobile game, old Judge, jury, and executioner has come to finish off what plants, samurai, and Barry Steakfries couldn’t: zombies.

Judge Dredd vs Zombies is a rather typical top-down shooter: clear a room of undead crawlers via your gun, exploding barrels, or any other means, and you advance to the next one.

Modified Calculator App With Advanced Options Released To The Play Store, Will Become The New Default In CM10

The calculator. Such a trivial part of smartphone software that most of us probably don't spent too much time thinking about its existence. While it can be used for the most basic functions, advanced options beyond that of the stock calculator are sometimes needed.

With that in mind, developer Xlythe yanked the stock calculator from ICS and JB and went to work. He modded it to perform advanced functions - just take a look at the feature list:

  • Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division. Really, if I broke this I'm sure you guys would find a way to give me negative stars.
  • Advanced functions like log, sin, cos and irrational numbers like pi and e.

[New Game] Critter Escape Is An Adorable Stealth-Based Adventure

KizStudios released a nice little adventure game called Critter Escape to the Amazon Appstore a while back, but it has now arrived in Google Play. In Critter Escape, you pretty much do what the title says. You're a critter of some sort, and you have to escape from a diabolical animal research facility. On the upside, some of the experiments offer helpful powers that improve your chances of escape.

There are two control schemes: a virtual thumbstick (which is bad) and a tap and drag system (which is good). There are over 120 levels in Critter Escape, each one filled with guards, barriers, and other hazards.

[New Game] One Single Life Is A Platformer That Kills Your Character And Your Enthusiasm

Odds are pretty good that you’ve hear this phrase from grizzled SNES-era gamers entering their thirties: “Games are too easy these days!” (Of course, younger gamers will use the same tone to complain about a lack of regenerating health and auto-saves.) If you long for the days of three lives and no continues… then even you might not be hardcore enough for One Single Life. This freshman game from developer FreshTone takes the “permanent death” idea to extremes by allowing you, well, one single life.

That isn’t just one life per level, by the way – it’s one life per game.

US Cellular Releases 'Wi-Fi Now' App, Automatically Connects Applicable Devices To Quality Wi-Fi Networks To Save On Mobile Bandwidth

Now here's a novel idea - a carrier actually helping you save money on your bill. That's exactly what US Cellular is providing with a new app that just landed in the Play Store.

Basically, the app sits idly in the background, watching for "partner" Wi-Fi hotspots. Once it locates one, it automatically connects, which ultimately saves you, the customer, money on your bill (or at least conserves some data). Pretty rad, no?

2 1[5]

According to the Play Store listing, "WiFi hotspots are tested for functionality and quality service," so you can at least feel (somewhat) comfortable connecting to seemingly random networks.

[Hands-On] Maluuba Is A Google Now Replacement You Might Actually Want To Use

I make no bones of the fact that I find 3rd party voice assistants to be increasingly redundant, especially with the arrival of Google Now on Jelly Bean.

But Google Now doesn't do certain things. One of those things has annoyed me since the early days of Google's Voice Actions: you can't make calendar events through voice input. And as a person that absolute despises digital calendars, this is something of a "must have" feature. Creating a calendar event in an app, to me, is like having a root canal - in that I wish I could be unconscious for the entire experience.
