Friendly App Makes Browsing Facebook on Mobile Tolerable Again

Facebook’s mobile clients are considered one of the most resource-hungry smartphone apps available out there. Their aggressive memory usage has led to many ditching them (including me) and switching to its web counterparts. However, there are some third-party apps available to overcome these issues at a native level and one of such, which we think is the best among these, […]

Pinterest Lens is Available to all in the US…and is Kind of Cool!

It might not attract as much attention as Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter, but Pinterest is a social network that has been chugging along at its own speed, building up a dedicated community, with its concept of sharing “pins” that contain interesting information.

OK Golf Review: Golf with a Touch of Zen…and Myst

OK Golf Review: Golf with a Touch of Zen…and Myst

I will admit it right off – golf is not my favorite sport (football and tennis are – cricket of late having been baseball-ized, but THAT is another story).

Super Mario Run Review: Mario? Yes! Run? Yes! Super? No!

Super Mario Run Review: Mario? Yes! Run? Yes! Super? No!

Hype is a dangerous thing. It builds up expectations, which more often than not are very difficult to deliver on. So Nintendo was clearly dancing on the edge of a particularly sharp digital sword when it made a right royal fuss about its iconic Mario character coming to smartphones (well, on iOS ones initially at least) on December 15. Yes, […]

Why I Moved to Simplenote and Probably You Should Too

As I was jotting down notes for a story on Google Keep, I noticed something peculiar – a major part of the file was missing.

I made some searches and ask a bunch of my colleagues to see […]

Photo Scanning the Google App Way… Well, it Just Works!

Google surprised a few people when it announced the Photo Scan app a few days ago. The app is basically designed to well, take better pictures of pictures. In simple English, you use the app to take digital copies of your printed photographs (the ones that came on that wonderful material called “Paper”, remember?) and store them. Preferably on Google […]

Google has been trying to bring the VR to the masses with its DayDream project and in the meanwhile, a group of talented developers who associate themselves with the Android Experiments has come up with a great new app called Sprayscape. The Android Experiments wing was created a year ago to showcase the great stuff developers are coming up for […]
