3 Fun Free Racing Games [Android]

Do you ever feel the need to cruise down an open highway, hitting pedal to the metal, going as fast as you can? Well, in case you don’t live in Germany (where there are autobahns with no speed limits), you may have to make do with a simulated racing game. On the bright side, should you choose to play that game on an Android device, you’d be able to play it while in an actual car (just don’t do it when you’re trying to drive)!

Improve Your English & Learn New Words With Vocabulary.com

When communicating online, your vocabulary and the quality of your writing are a key part of the first (and second) impression you make. It’s important to be able to communicate clearly and come across as an intelligent human being, whether you’re just posting a quick tweet, applying for a freelance (or full-time) job, or even using a dating website.

Robo Defense – A Huge, Addictive Tower Defense Game [Android]

Robo Defense – A Huge, Addictive Tower Defense Game [Android]

Let me start with a key detail. Robo Defense for Android has a free version, but I will be reviewing the full version, which costs three bucks. I still decided it was worth writing about, because it is just so addictive. You won’t find killer 3D graphics here, nor will you find a very engaging soundtrack. What you will find though, is a deep, lengthy game with a serious habit-forming potential.

Why Windows Is The Way To Go: A Microsoft Fanboy’s Perspective [Opinion]

Everywhere I look these days, I see people proclaiming the wonders of Mac and Linux. Well, I’m a die-hard Windows user, and have been one ever since the days of Windows for Workgroups 3.11 . One kind of blog post I don’t really see often enough is “why Windows rocks”. I’m going to try to explain why exactly I stick with Windows, even though I can easily switch to Mac or Linux.

Create Stunning Panoramic Images With Pano [Android]

Today we’re going to be looking at Pano, a camera app that currently goes for $2 on the Android Market. Pano has no built-in effects; it doesn’t have advanced shutter controls or a built-in timer. It doesn’t do Lomo, and you can’t say “cheese” to have it take a picture. It does just one thing, but something no other camera app I reviewed so far can do – it helps you take large, beautiful panoramic images.

How To Take Control Of Your Ringtones With Ring Commander [Android 1.5+]

Ringtones are a very subjective thing, so it’s nice that Android comes with such a large selection of them. But once you’ve settled on a few ringtones you like, having to scroll through a lengthy list of irritating sounds just to swap between those few can get old pretty fast. For some reason, Android’s designers didn’t include a way to easily delete built-in ringtones.

Create Compelling Screenshots With SnapDraw Free 3.20 [Windows]

Creating screenshots isn’t only for tech writers and bloggers. Screenshots can also be very helpful if you’ve ever had to show your elderly aunt how to print something from her Internet Explorer 7.0 browser and you felt the need for a good tool to make illustrated screenshots for her. Today we’ll be looking at SnapDraw, a free utility for creating screenshots that make sense.

Read Entire Books On Your Smartphone With Moon+ Reader [Android 1.6+]

While I dearly love my Kindle, my smartphone is always with me. Also, the Kindle doesn’t have a backlit screen (which is the whole point of a Kindle really), and sometimes a reading lamp spreads too much light – such as when your significant other is trying to catch some sleep and you want to read in bed.

Boost Your Brain Power & Memorize Important Information With AnkiDroid [Android 1.5+]

Alfa November Kilo India. That’s how you spell “Anki” according to the NATO phonetic alphabet. And no, I didn’t need Wikipedia to come up with that. I just know the phonetic alphabet now. And I can also phonetically read many words in Russian, when a month ago I couldn’t. This is all thanks to AnkiDroid, a free Android application for learning things using flash cards.

Speak Your Email & Text Replies Instead Of Typing Them With FlexT9 Keyboard [Android 2.1+]

Typing on a tiny touchscreen is not an inherently fun activity. I can’t remember the last time I heard someone say “Gosh, I love how I keep making embarrassing typos with this tiny keyboard!” Thankfully, there are some very smart people who are working to make typing on a portable device a more bearable experience.

Read Magazines On Your Android Device With Zinio [2.2+]

I really enjoy reading books. I have a Kindle and I use it all the time. But sometimes a book isn’t always what I need. There are times when I have just a couple of minutes to fill, or when I’m somewhat distracted. For those times, a magazine works much better, and while I can read newspapers and magazines on the Kindle, I was intrigued by Zinio which offers paid magazines for Android.
