Chainfire’s Hotspot Control Removes WiFi Tethering Restrictions From Unrooted Android Devices


Native Wi-FI tethering support has been a feature of Android since version 2.2 (Froyo), but it is disabled or hidden from the Settings in many devices, thanks to their manufacturers or the carriers that sell them. On certain devices, the feature automatically gets disabled if no SIM card is present in the device. There have been several solutions out there to bring this functionality back to such devices, but almost all of them require root access. If you’re unlucky enough to have this feature disabled on your Android device and don’t want to root it to get it back, Chainfire has a solution for you in Hotspot Control. Just released on Google Play Store, it is a tiny app that allows you to easily toggle Wi-Fi hotspot mode on your unrooted Android device on which the native feature is present but hidden or disabled by the device manufacturer or your carrier...

How To Install & Run Facebook Home On Unsupported Android Devices


As announced at Facebook’s “New Home on Android” event, and a few days after its APK was leaked to the interwebs, Facebook Home was released to the Play Store today, but only in the US, and that too for a limited number of devices, namely HTC One X, One X+, One, Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S4. Where Facebook might be justified in localizing their product, we’re sure there are countless users pouting in disappointment at having such a major release kept out of reach, and that too without an ETA on support for other regions and devices.
Now, if you’re a resident of the US and happen to own one of these devices (two of which are yet to hit the shelves), you needn’t read on. If you own a supported device, but are in an unsupported region, you should only need to sideload the APK of the final release. If, however, you don’t fulfill any of these requirements, as should be the case with quite a majority of Android-toting Facebook users around the world, join us past the break for a step-by-step guide on making your device Facebook Home-compatible!!!

Cinemagram Brings Its Vine-Like Short Video Sharing App To Android [Review]


Creating and sharing GIF files has been a long time internet tradition, dating back to the 90s when broadband wasn’t widely available and most people didn’t have much of a choice but to use GIF animations due to their small size compared to traditional video formats. The concept has seen a recent surge, thanks to apps like Vine from Twitter. Almost a year back, we had Cinemagram that allowed users to do the same, but both Vine and Cinemagram were released for the iOS platform. While Vine still remains iOS-exclusive for now, Cinemagram has finally made its way to Android. In case you haven’t heard about it yet, it lets you record, edit and share ‘Cine’, which are basically small 4-second animated clips or cinemagraphs. The app still has its troubles on certain devices when it comes to editing and the final file output. Let’s dig deeper into it and take Cinemagram for Android for a spin right after the break...

Overlays Turns Any Android Widget Into A Persistent, Floating Panel

Just when you thought apps that could be run as overlays – such as Tiny AppsFloating Browser Flux! and Super Video – were all the rage, Overlays for Android comes along with an offering that further builds on the concept. Overlays works with widgets, not apps, allowing you to use the widget ofany app anywhere in the OS, all neatly managed through a robust profile system. Widgets can be resized and repoistioned freely, that is, they do not snap to a grid while you do so. Even better, you can do all this after the floating widget has been set and you are running your priority app. For a more closer look at what could be a step in the evolution of Android widgets, read on after the break...

Twitter For Android Updated With Holo UI, @/# Suggestions & More


The world’s favorite microblogging (and often ranting) platform has had its apps available for every significant OS out there and while the iOS app has been quite polished for quite a while, the UI of its Android counterpart had been long due for an overhaul. The wait is over, as Twitter has finally released the update, bringing the critically acclaimed Holo UI introduced in Android 4.0 ICS to the app. In addition to the Holo UI overhaul, Twitter for Android also gets a few feature additions, most notably automatic suggestions when you start typing a @username or #hashtag, integration with other services to install or launch their apps from tweets containing links to content on them, and a new font...
Many people had been wondering what’s taking Twitter this long to update its Android app to meet the UI guidelines set by Android starting with version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and continued in Jelly Bean. Better late than never though, as the Holo UI update seems to be definitely worth the wait. The navigation buttons for Home, Connect, Discover and Me in the top bar have been replaced with Holo tabs, and the whole top UI has been flattened to remove any hint of a pseudo-3D look. You still get the exact same functionality from all the tabs, with the added benefit that you can now swipe sideways to navigate between them.

Tiny Apps For Android Combines Five Handy Floating Tools In One Package


There are quite a few computer users out there who have sticky notes stuck across their monitor’s border – and why not, since that information is always available at a glance. These notes made their way to computer users in form of note widgets for their desktops as well as apps for their smartphones and tablets. However, why stop at merely taking notes? Enter Tiny Apps – a package that contains five floating apps that act like omnipresent widgets. This reminds me of Small Apps for the newer Sony Xperia devices, but Tiny Apps has quite a few extra tricks up its sleeve. You get quick access to a sound recorder, music player, painting canvas, calculator, and of course, notes from anywhere across the OS, floating atop all other apps...
Floating apps such as the ones offered by Tiny Apps are much better suited to a tablet given the large amount of screen real estate and the ability to actually go about working with your other apps without having the floating app get into the way of everything. That said, the apps can still be quite useful on phones as well, especially since they can be minimized into their small floating icon...

Add Stylized Weather Info To Photos With CamWeather For Android


We have seen countless weather apps with several different approaches, but CamWeather delivers on what has crossed my mind quite a few times, and I’m sure there would be others out there too who have wanted something like this. The app works on a simple yet novel idea – it fuses local weather and social elements together, enabling users to share not just the weather for their location with others, but also add a picture to it for their friends to see. In short, let’s say you’re out on a vacation and want to share with others how it is there; you run CamWeather, take a photo, overlay your location and weather information on it, and share away via Instagram, Facebook and more. With several weather layout presets and an interface that even a child can easily understand and use, the app gives a whole new dimension to weather info sharing...

We’ve covered quite a few tools that let you move files between your phone and your desktop. What most of these apps do is let you transfer photos over the same Wi-Fi connection.

Easily Manage Or Delete WhatsApp Data On Android With WCleaner


WhatsApp has become ubiquitous as the free mobile texting solution of choice for millions of users around the world. The service enables you to not only send and receive text messages but also images as well as audio and video clips. The messages are stored on your SD card in an encrypted format that isn’t directly readable in general purpose file viewers or text editors. Over time, all this content can keep on accumulating over your device, consuming significant amount of space and not serving a purpose for those who don’t care about keeping all their old conversations. Therefore, it may be desirable for many to periodically delete it. Also, if you are selling or giving your device away to someone else (lets say a family member) without performing a full factory reset, you’ll likely want to manually remove your personal content from it, including all those Whatsapp conversations. WPCleaner Beta is a free app that lets you view all the content sent and received over Whatsapp categorically, and allows you to quickly delete any or all of it. Let’s find out how after the jump...
Whatsapp creates a folder on the SD card that houses its ‘Messages Backup’ files as well as all your sent and received pictures and videos. However, audio clips are stored in a different location, and WCleaner lets you open and delete those as well.

Copy Offers File Sharing, Cloud Storage & Sync With 12GB+ Free Space


File sharing has become immensely easy over the past few years, thanks to the fast internet availability in many parts of the world, and services like Jumpshare and Dropbox. The aforementioned file sharing solutions help users share files with much more ease than they could just a few years ago. In addition, such services also provides them with virtual cloud storage to back up their content as well as access it remotely over the internet. Copy is a great new file sharing and cloud storage service that I recently discovered and took for a spin. Available for desktop, mobile and web, the service makes file sharing as well as collaboration simple and intuitive...
Copy’s web interface is quite clean and minimalistic. To share files using the service’s web UI, you can either drag and drop them on the page, or double click the upload area and select the files. Once selected, copy instantly starts uploading files to the cloud – it’s that simple. You can share files without even creating any user account that most other similar services often require.

Play Starcraft: Brood War & Caesar III On Android With Winulator


The concept of emulation, particularly for game consoles is not exactly a new one on Android. We’ve seen emulators for Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Play Station, Game Boy Advance and many more gaming systems since the advent of smartphones running this open-source OS. Now, the PC has been added to the list as well, and while it may not be a console, PC games have their own charm at times. Smartphones have become powerful enough to emulate many old classics, and Winulator proves just that point. To show things off, the Windows 95/98 app emulator supports the famous classicStarcraft: Brood War from Blizzard Entertainment. Not only that; Impression Games’ Caesar III has also made the cut.

Run Android Apps In Full-Screen Mode With Access To Notifications & Navigation


Accessing notifications, options and navigation controls can be a daunting task on an Android device when you’re using an app in full screen mode like watching a movie or playing game. This is most problematic in case of tablets and large phones. Also, there are occasions when you wish the status bar could just disappear so that an app can gain some more screen estate. full!screen is an app that takes all of these scenarios into consideration and delivers functions that will be hard to let go of, once you get used to them. The app will not simply hide the status bar, but will also provide you with two translucent, configurable on-screen buttons that remain available whether you’re watching a video, surfing the web, or just using the phone normally with the status bar hidden. The buttons can also be configured to your liking. Let’s take a closer look at how the app functions and what else it has to offer.

So you’re driving, listening to your favorite tracks and have just reached your destination. You pick up the phone and realize you have a bunch of unattended calls, consequently realizing the phone was on silent and the vibrator buzz was just not loud enough in all that music.

Vonage Mobile For Android Updated With Video Calling


Skype has always been the top VoIP choice for many when it comes to making voice and video calls over WiFi, 3G and the recently introduced LTE. The service has provided an unparalleled medium of communication that enables us to get in touch with friends, family, coworkers and clients no matter where they are. Though that doesn’t make Skype the only player in the game fighting to claim the top VoIP service crown, with apps like Viber and Tango giving it a run for its money on smartphone platforms. Previously, we covered a powerful VoIP app for Android called Vonage Mobile by Vonage, which we found to be one of best VoIP apps out there after Skype. For those unfamiliar with Vonage, it’s one of the top VoIP and SIP service provider in US, Canada and UK. When we first reviewed it, the app only allowed to make voice calls, but today Vonage has updated their app to a new beta version that includes a video call option as well. Let’s take a closer look at this new feature...

Robird Is A Balanced, Holo-Themed Twitter Client For Android


Holo themed Twitter clients for Android have been around for some time now. Robird is another such app aspiring to make its mark in that area with the developer giving the app a very minimal and clean look. The simple and clutter-free nature of the app’s design is well complimented by the intuitive and simple interface for navigation and using the various functions it has to offer. While it falls short of extensive customizations and settings that the competition may offer, you have to keep in mind that notall users are comfortable with such fancy settings, and many just want to keep things simple and effective. However, Robird does sport the basic must-have settings any casual twitter user would like to make use of. We take a look at how the app fairs, after the jump...

How To Set Your WhatsApp Status To Invisible On Android


Let’s face it, I love how WhatsApp shows me who’s actually seen the message I left them and the fact I can tell when they were last online on the world’s most popular free instant messaging service. However, I dread the fact that people can tell the same about me when I have to open the app to read a particular message left for me, and in turn register my ‘Last Seen’ time. This is manageable by turning off the WiFi or mobile data connection before you open WhatsApp, but is annoying if you have to practice this frequently. Moving on, we come to the ‘typing’ status, – an ingenious implementation on all messaging services these days to keep you updated on the other person’s activity during a conversation – that can be really embarrassing when you’re speechless and your contact can see you’re taking ages for typing what ultimately turn out to be one or two lines. You can turn the internet off, again, or you can installWhatsApp Shadow Beta. Be offline while you read your WhatsApp conversations or send messages without your contacts knowing that you’re typing. We’re sure you’re going all “OMG what?! How? Show me!”, so read on for all the details...
The app works on a very simple principle; toggling your active WiFi or data connection on and off. More of an extension, WhatsApp Shadow integrates itself in WhatsApp and does so without any complications or major changes. Simply put, you can shuffle between online and offline mode with the tap of a button, all while staying in the app...

Get Screen Standby & Remote Control On Android When Connected To External Display
