Music apps these days either play music or recognise music that’s already playing. One app in particular does both, and more.
musicXmatch finds the lyrics of whatever song you are currently listening to on your Android. It’s great if you are a death metal listener but can’t really understand the screams.
The world we live in is beautiful. Photographs allow you to see far more of it than you could ever dream. Occasionally, I come across one or two fantastic pictures of great scenes that amaze and astounding me. Till now, it’s been hard to find a tool which compiles all of these into one database – but 500px could be it. Transferring the quality and class over from the popular webpage, this new Android app has a promising future.
500px gives you an enormous variety of images, all high quality and superb. Taken from an enormous amount of photographers you can easily pick out the best.
Phone calls have pretty much been the same since the advent of the telephone. You make a call and you converse. Only the basic exchange of auditory communications goes on. I know today there are apps that communicate in many other ways, such as face-to-face video calls (Skype and the like), but the everyday phone call remains the same.
The creators of the Sidecar app have something to say about that though. Sidecar, and the sharing it enables during phone calls, has the potential to change the way we think of phone calls altogether. Imagine being able to share photos, video, contacts, and even your location all during a phone call. Sidecar makes that possible.
As you’ll be able to see, if some of the tools that Sidecar offers take off, the phone call could be changed forever.
I have been a big fan of Basecamp from 37signals for years now. I think it’s the best project management system; easy to use, you don’t need to log in to use it (thanks to email integration), and it has some great features. Plus it’s mobile! Well…it was until they upgraded to Basecamp Next, which got a new API and a new design that doesn’t have a mobile friendly interface. This was a big bummer for me. Luckily, Everest came to the rescue.
There’s no shortage of zombie games in the Play Store, but Zombie Café is the only one in the Cooking Games category.
I’ve seen many tower defense games pitting zombies against all sorts of enemies but I guess no one really thought about zombies as viable characters for a restaurant management game – until now. The result is a thoroughly engaging and witty gastronomical experience you’ll never forget.
Have you ever needed a way to jot down great ideas or notes quickly and easily, while still keeping them well-organized? If so, you should give mind mapping a go – and Mindjet is my favorite app for that. It allows you to easily mind map ideas, schedules, payments, or anything else you need to know and organize on your Android phone or tablet.
You have probably already heard about Evernote, one of the most popular cross-platform note taking applications out there. Over the years, Evernote has built quite a reputation for itself as the universal note taking and information management platform of choice, with its free apps available on pretty much every desktop and mobile platform out there.
So when they decided to start addressing niche markets with their contact management and food related apps, I was a bit disappointed – because they were only available on iOS! Having used Evernote and pretty much locked myself in its ecosystem for years now, I wanted to check out how these apps improved on the already robust feature set of the parent app. When Evernote Hello finally came to Android earlier this month, I was quick to jump on the bandwagon and take it for a spin.
Kinectimals is an advanced cyber-pet game in which you can name, play with, stroke, tickle, wash and feed several baby animals. It features a range of extremely cute cubs to nurture, including a cheetah, an African lion and leopard, a panther and a Royal Bengal tiger.
With realistic graphics, incredible sound and thoroughly intuitive gameplay, maybe you have time in your life for an virtual animal cub? Read on for more info… and get ready to emit more ‘aaah’s and ‘oooh’s than you will want to acknowledge.
SketchBook Mobile from AutoDesk accomplishes what I believe many apps fail to do: provide a simple yet powerful way to make drawings on Android. This app is well thought-out, designed, and built. This effort pays off as the app in the right hand can produce some amazing results. Check out theSketchBook Flickr group for some amazing showcases, and read on for my review of the app itself.
For people who are not gifted singers, their affinity towards music may be limited to sound mixing or song writing. I’m not a strong singer, but I can write. With an app like Songify, that’s all you really need to do. You don’t even need to write down the lyrics, just recite them on the go and the app takes care of the rest. Find out how Songify can become your very own mobile recording studio.
