Control The Camera Of One Android Or iOS Device Using Another With Remote Shot

Just recently, one of my AddictiveTips colleagues covered WiFi Camera, an iOS app that, by pairing a couple of iDevices together over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, allows one to snap photos with the camera of the other. As is often the case, whenever an interesting app arrives on one platform, users across the other platform tend to become curious about the availability of similar apps for their devices. While it is unknown whether or not WiFi Camera will be made available to Android users, we do have a very fine alternative for our readers. Remote Shot is a free Android and iOS app that works in almost the same way as WiFi Camera, meaning that you can remotely view and capture whatever the camera of the other device is looking at. However, connection can only be established over Bluetooth. Once paired, you have complete control over the camera of the target device, including toggling between front and rear camera view, capturing images or videos, selection of flashlight mode, and triggering the self-timer or burst mode...

Wild Blood Review

The mobile gaming industry has been updated once again with the introduction of the Unreal Gaming Engine. Gamefloft’s all-new RPG – Wild Blood – has ushered in a new era in tablet/mobile phone gaming and it looks like it will go a long way. That being said, it does still have a long way to go. So here’s a quick look at this third person RPG set in a magical medieval time, tested on the iPad 2...

In case you’re not too familiar with the tale of King Arthur, here goes. Once upon a time in a place called Camelot, there lived a King and Queen. King Arthur, thought to be a wise and just man, loved and married the lovely lady Guinevere. Shortly after they were married, a lonely Knight named Lancelot (the black Knight to some) came strolling along into the kingdom, bringing with him a drama that could have very well been the start of the first soap opera.

Google+ Update For Android & iOS Adds Support For Pages & Post Editing

There can be no denying the fact that Google+ has not yet proved to be the Facebook-killer many people initially thought it would be, but Google’s social network does have its positives. While there are great features like Hangouts for individual users, Google+ Pages offer businesses a convenient way of interacting with the user -base en masse. It has always been a source of disappointment to the social network’s Android and iOS-using fans that the Google+ clients for these platforms do not support Pages and work only for individual profiles. Thankfully, the issue has finally been addressed in the latest update. While support for Pages is the only major change in the Android app, the iOS version also lets its users edit past posts, and if you are on an iPad, you can find people and posts via the search option present in the main menu (a feature hitherto only available on the iPhone)...

Protect Your Android Device From ‘Dirty USSD’ Hack Using ESET USSD Control

Just recently, we discussed in detail about a vulnerability in Android’s stock dialer app that can allow certain USSD codes hidden behind web links to completely wipe your personal data, and how you can prevent such hack attempts using the Bitdefender USSD Wipe Stopper tool. Available in the Google Play Store for free, ESET USSD Control is yet another handy solution coming from a trusted company that helps you protect your Android device from falling an easy prey to ‘dirty USSD’ hack attempts.

The Best Video Players For Android

I remember the days when the coolest cellphone was the smallest and most compact one and in the course of a few more years, out came PDAs; some with phone functionality and some as a personal assistant. The screens on those things were huge but they made for some very good multimedia players, something that carried into what we now term as Smartphones. Phones were again headed for an increase in screen size and a larger screen soon became sought after. Phones were soon judged by their screen quality and the ability to play videos. Today however, most smartphones have decent screens in terms of both side and resolution and furthermore, their CPU, GPU and RAM specs are also adequate enough for the job. So now the question isn’t which phone plays videos better but rather whichapp is able to play videos better than the other. Of course, a countless other questions arise, like, ‘which player will support 1080p playback?’ or ‘does this player support subtitles?’ or if you’re more aesthetically conscious, ‘which player has the best UI?’. In what follows, we will try and answer these questions and a few more, as we list down some of the best Android video player apps out there today.


Better 3D Maps, imagery in iOS 6 Maps now

After Apple introduced iOS 6, the brand received an incredible amount of flak for its under-par Maps service. This prompted Apple CEO Tim Cook to issue an apology to its users. He even went as far as suggesting alternative applications to use until Apple meets customers' expectations. As per a report by MacRumors, it appears that Apple is already putting the effort in, and moving quickly to address issues with its default mapping application. It now has improved coverage for 3D maps, and better imagery.

As per MacRumors, “While improvements have been ongoing, MacRumors forum members yesterday began noticing what appears to be a larger set of additions to the 3D content in the Maps app, including both the satellite/aerial imagery and the standard maps. One region that was among the first to be noticed was the New York City area, with a number of improvements including new 3D imagery of the Statue of Liberty being seen.”

Bitdefender USSD Wipe Stopper Protects Against ‘Dirty USSD’ Remote Reset Hack On Android

Android might be making steady progress as a hyper-customizable and user-friendly mobile operating system, but on the other hand, it also doesn’t seem to part ways with the various system-level vulnerabilities that keep rearing their heads at frequent intervals. The latest threat to haunt Google’s mobile OS is perhaps the most destructive of the lot. Initially detected in just a handful of Samsung phones (starting from Samsung Galaxy S III), the problem has reportedly spread across a broad range of devices, including Motorola Defy (running the custom CyanogenMod ROM) and HTC One X (running HTC Sense 4.0) etc. Apparently, it’s the Android’s stock dialer app that is reported to be accepting certain unauthorized USSD codes (from malicious code that could be hiding behind links on webpages), which results in your device being wiped completely. Numerous security companies have been releasing solutions to tackle the issue, and the familiar name of Bitdefender too has come to the forefront. The company’s latest security tool, USSD Wipe Stopper, does exactly what its name implies. Once installed, the app displays whether your device is infected by the ‘dirty USSD’ attack or not. In addition, it lets you select the default dialer app that should confront any such remote attacks...
