 Motorola Droid BionicMotorola Droid Bionic

Here we go again, folks. Yet another Motorola Droid Bionic review (of the pre-release nature) is under way in our Droid Bionic forums. And along with some great info, Joe the Insider’s given a few of the clearest hands-on pics we’ve seen thus far.

As for Joe’s thoughts on the DB? In his own words:

Initial thoughts. The phone is extremely light  [Read More…]

Android App Review: Kinetic Clock

Kinetic Clock SteamPunk Theme

I’m a sucker for clock widgets. I have the time displayed clearly on my lock screen, in my notification bar, I even have a watch I wear semi-regularly, but none of them compare to a clock widget. A lot of our readers seem to agree, as most “post your home screen” threads are quickly dominated by a large half-screen widget that lets you know the time. Maybe scientists will diagnose  [Read More…]

Android App Review: Real64

To be fair, I know this looks like a direct copy of strikingly similar to N64oid. However, N64oid isn’t on the Android Market and Real64 is, so that’s why I’m taking a look at it.

As far as emulators go, Real64 works fine. Most games seem to run, although the level of problems with any particular ROM seems to vary. In my experience (and as evidenced in the video), Pokemon  [Read More…]

Android Weather App Review: BeWeather

When it comes to weather apps on Android, HTC’s pretty much had the market cornered in terms of design. But look out, there’s a new kid in town. And in addition to being gorgeous as well as extremely useful, BeWeather has the added advantage of not being locked into one manufacturer’s devices. Indeed, for $ 2.99 $ 3.59 an apparently fluctuating price, anyone can download this app, powered by the also excellent  [Read More…]

HTC EVO 3D review (European version)

HTC EVO 3D

HTC isn’t always first to market with new smartphone technologies, but we’ve found that its products are usually worth the wait. The Sensation, for example, wasn’t the first dual-core smartphone on the block when it launched back in May, but when it arrived it proved itself to be a speedy and stylish device with some of the best software we’ve seen on any Android phone.

Now, without much fanfare or hype,  [Read More…]

Android Game Review: Office Jerk

If you’ve ever worked in an office (even I have, once), you probably knew someone like this. Snarky, stuck up, and the consummate overachiever, the Office Jerk sits right in front of you and needs to be put in his place.

How to do it? By throwing things at him, of course. You can toss all sorts of things at him, ranging from harmless (a wadded up piece of paper) to downright deadly (a stick of  [Read More…]

Review: Classic Notes for Android

If you haven’t heard of Classic Notes by Fluffy Delusions, you’re definitely missing out. Classic Notes is the most functional, usable, versatile app I’ve ever come across, and that’s saying something. It allows the user to take notes and make to-do lists, as well as a host of other things. 

These include:

Vizio tablet review

Can you really get a decent Android tablet for less than $ 300?

Vizio tablet

It seems like every week we see a new Android device from a company we either haven’t heard of, or one that’s not known for portable computers.  More often than not, these devices end up at a discount store or on a television shopping channel at 3 a.m. on a Tuesday.  The Vizio tablet has a couple advantages  [Read More…]

Sprinkle (Review)

Late last week we informed you of Sprinkle hitting the Android Market, a game where you help an alien species inhabiting Titan, one of the moons of Saturn. Earthlings have crashed through Saturn’s rings, sending meteors crashing into Titan, it’s your job to help this alien race by taking command of a water cannon mounted on a crane to extinguish the fires before they engulf the Titans homes.
