This is not a new app but it’s something that we’ve just recently discovered and one that we thought is useful, awesome and amazing enough for us share it with you.
AirDroid is a simple to setup and easy to use application that allows you to manage your Android device wirelessly from the web browser on your computer. The app is a really great way to access stuff on your Android device. You can manage files and documents on your device’s micro SD card, you can drag and drop files to and from the device, and even access your contacts, call logs, emails, and a whole host of other things too. You can also text using the app as well as download and install apps on your device all wirelessly from the web browser of your choice on your computer.
The interface is pleasant and you don’t need to root your device to access most of the cool features of AirDroid. You don’t even have to install anything on your PC either. Just key in passcode or scan a QR code and you’re done.
This is something we really recommend you try out. Download the free app from Google Play here or just scan the QR code below.

After months of waiting, Instagram is now officially available for Android version 2.2 and above. Currently Instagram has more than 15 million worldwide on iOS and finally the photo sharing app has expanded to the Android platform. Previously Android users had to make do with alternatives such as MOLOME. We wonder when will Instagram roll out a Windows Phone version as well.
Head over to the Google Play Store to download.
Instagram is coming to Android, everyone knows that. What we all don’t know is when exactly this will happen. Well it looks like the popular social photo sharing app will be available for Android user sooner than very soon.
Instagram has opened registration for Android users, saying that those who register will be among the first to receive what would most likely be a beta release of the application on their device. You can register here.
The registration is simple enough. All you need to do is enter your email address and you’re done. You will receive an email right after that saying that the people from Instagram will get in touch “soon” – we so hate that word.
First, watch the video. Done? Ok good. Now awe in amazement knowing the fact that that video was made entirely using iMovie on the iPad. It’s amazing what such a simple device can do. Just think, if a novice can crack a decent quality video edit, imagine what a pro can do with the the iPad. The possibilities are indeed limitless.
And if you consider that 48 hours of videos are uploaded on YouTube every minute, you can see how the iPad with the new iMovie makes a compelling case for consumers. Videos are the next frontier in user generated content and the new iPad, with its quad-core graphics performance, the 5MP camera with backlit sensor and enhanced optics, and the updated iMovie, is primed to make the most out of this surging trend. Imaging shooting a concert in 1080p, editing it right after and uploading it immediately when you’re done. Or imagine a roving reporter shooting, editing and uploading the content right from the field. Imagine the advantages and potential.
More and more people are uploading videos online and even more want to make their videos look good. Similarly, these same people don’t want the fuss, complication and cost normally associated with full editing suite.
Apple’s combination of easy to use yet immensely powerful software and the gratification of being able to create amazing user generated content so quickly and easily on an intuitive device like the iPad will be the biggest pulling factor for consumers to hit Apple stores come launch day.
In yesterday’s iPad announcement Tim Cook said “Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you can’t create on an iPad”, we can certainly agree with what he said. While we still think that there is still very little to get excited about with the new iPad, overall Apple has once again shown why it is unbeatable in the tablet market segment.
With the iPad and easy to use yet amazingly powerful apps like iMovie, Apple has created the perfect marriage of software, operating system, applications and cloud solutions that all work seamlessly together to give the user a simple yet immensely rewarding and satisfying experience.
And this, ladies and gentlemen is why the new iPad doesn’t need to be revolutionary, because as it is right now, it’s already perfect.
Chillingo — the developers behind the oh-so-cute Cut the Rope iOS game has announced that they will be refreshing the title with 25 new levels along with new game mechanics and features. In the update, you can feed the game’s main character, Om Nom, with various types of foods and there are also new obstacles and challenges to tackle.
Chillingo has also added a easter-egg/treasure hunt element in the game where you look for drawings in the various levels. Finding those drawings can apparently unlock prizes, like the chance to gift the game to a friend on Facebook.
The update (version 1.4, called Toy Box) should be available in the game soon.
On top of there the makers of Cut the Rope will also be releasing a series of seriously cute Om Nom plushies. The On Nom dolls come in various sizes an expressions and are expected to hit stores in the US sometime in October.
We’re wondering if Android and Angry Birds paraphernalia online store The Taken Shop, will be bringing this in as well.
And yes, these Om Nom dolls are too cute!
Check out a video showcasing some of the new game play coming to the latest update of Cut the Rope right after the jump.
What are they?
The Magic Fiddle for iPad is an app that emulates classical string instruments like the violin and the fiddle. There are various modes in which you can play the virtual instruments and the app even allows you to play together with other players from around the world right within the app itself.
The Magic Piano for iPad offers roughly the same features but instead of playing string instruments, you play the piano.
But theses two apps are not just fun and games. You can use the apps as a tool to learn how to play the instruments that they emulate. Either way, both apps serve up bucket loads of fun.
Check out the demo videos of the apps right after the jump to see what we mean.
The frequent travelers will know this very well. You’ve landed in a country where the natives don’t speak your language and you don’t speak theirs. So what is a traveler to do? In the good old days, we’ve resorted to sign language, sometimes a mini game of charades and even win, lose or draw in the streets. Well with this new app from Google, you will never again be the laughing stock of the locals.
Google Translate is a very useful app that provides simple and quick translation for more languages than you’ll ever need.
There’s a nifty speak to translate feature where you just say the word you want to translate and the app will do the rest. After you’ve translated the word, you can have the app say the word or sentence for you as well. Currently Google Translator understands 15 languages and speaks 23.
Google Translate also includes the ability to view dictionary results for single words, star or mark regularly used translations for quick reference as well as go through your translation history. The app also supports romanized text like Pinyin and Romaji.
As far a cool apps go, this one is pretty high up on our list.
Zilla is a vehicle telemetry app that gives you data on acceleration, braking and cornering G forces, speed and air temp, just to name a few, right from your iPhone. There’s even a graphical weight transfer data that shows information in real time. Other than that, you can customise the layout in which the data is presented.
The thing that makes Zilla so cool is that the graphics look just like the ones you see on the Nissan GT-R. Zilla retails for US$3.99 (about RM12), way, way cheaper than saving up for a real GT-R, don’t you think?
