Love to shop? Love to shop on the go? Love to shop while shopping? If you answered yes to any of those questions (especially the last one) then you need to grab the new app from online retailer Zappos. It offers all of the Zappos deals that you've grown to love, but it also has the features that you would expect from a good shopping app. Of course you can search and buy, but it also has product reviews, a sharing feature that works over bluetooth, and a wishlist style feature.
This morning we told you about RIM's plan to bring Blackberry Enterprise Solution to Android and iOS, with a brief mention of Android apps running on the Playbook. No sooner than we posted the aforementioned article did we find out that RIM had demonstrated just that at Blackberry World Conference. Take a look at the video:
Each Android app will run in its own virtual machine, but will seamlessly integrate into the Blackberry ecosystem.
Judging by the comments in the post where Brad described his experiences with the Sprint + Google Voice integration after receiving his beta invite a few weeks ago, many peoples interest was piqued. Luckily, the wait is over for those of us who weren't fortunate enough to get an early invite to the program - they've now opened the doors for the rest of us.
The announcement comes courtesy of a post on the Google Voice blog, and outlines the 2 options available:
Option 1: Keep your Sprint number: Your Sprint number becomes your Google Voice number so that when people call your Sprint mobile number, it rings all the phones you want.
Ever since my visit to Google I/O last year, I've been waiting for this year's event with great anticipation - after all, I/O still remains the most exciting conference for Android fans and developers. To help attendees navigate around it, this morning Google updated the official I/O app that has been sitting idle for almost a year.
If you're trying to manage all the sessions on your own, just stop - this is exactly what the I/O app will do for you.
Twitter has been pushing its own official clients onto more and more devices - including Android - for some time now, and the idea of them buying out another popular Twitter client is certainly not a new one. That's why it won't come as too much of a surprise to hear that Twitter has reportedly acquired TweetDeck for the sum of around $40 - 50 million, a purchase that includes cash and Twitter stock.
I really, really love apps that let me remote access my phone. In the past, I've used apps that let me take screenshots remotely, access my SMS remotely, and do a few other simple tasks without ever having to touch my phone.
Today, though, I've come across the mother of all remote control apps, and it's appropriately named LazyDroid Web Desktop. This thing is super cool - it lets you access your phone over Wi-Fi or USB through a desktop-esque application inside of your browser.
Last weekend, a developer (and redditor) posted on Andreddit to promote his new game, Clever Contraptions. He said he was "inspired by the classic game 'the incredible machine'[sic]" - a promise that triggered my nostalgia and prompted me to download it immediately. In the days since, I've managed to spend a bit of time with the game, and I have to admit I've come away pleased, despite a few minor niggles.
Up until now, if you needed a file manager on your Honeycomb tablet you were stuck using one that was designed for phone versions of Android, which didn't always translate well to the larger screen. Software developers Rhythm Software saw this issue, grabbed it by the horns, and took care of it. The end result? File Manager HD.
File Manager HD is the first file manager specifically designed for Honeycomb tablets (according to the developer).
If you're an HBO subscriber and just can't get enough TV, then I've got good news for you! HBO has just released its official watch-it-on-the-go Android App, HBO GO. Of course, you have to be an HBO customer in order to use this app, but that's the only prerequisite as far as I can tell.
The app allows you to watch all of your favorite HBO content directly on your mobile device, including movies and HBO original content.
