If you have a Samsung Galaxy Note II, then you’ll probably be happy to hear about a new app being developed by xda user LegendK95, called SPenBoard Switcher.
One of the best things about the Note II is the ability to use the S-Pen to write, instead of tapping keys with your fingers as you normally would. The stock Samsung keyboard includes this feature, but for those of us who prefer 3rd-party keyboards (such as Swiftkey), it’s a hassle to manually change over the keyboard when using, and not using the S-Pen. It doesn’t appear that you need root either, so all of you can enjoy this one!Google+ Profile
I’m not the hugest fan of cases on a smartphone. Generally speaking, they add bulk and ugliness to something that is more than just function, something that was designed to be beautiful. Why would you hide that? Well, one reason is to keep it beautiful, to protect it from bumps and falls. When I heard about the Tech 21 Impact Snap case, I was definitely intrigued.Google+ Profile
If you use your smartphone for more than just making calls and receiving texts, it’s probably same to assume you struggle with battery life. One of the great things about (the majority of) android phones is the removable battery. That means you can carry a spare or two and simple swap them out when you run out of charge. I have to say though, the Galaxy Note II is probably the exception to this rule thanks to the huge 3100 mAh battery included inside. But, the gadget freak inside me always loves having a spare battery around, you know, just in case!Google+ Profile
If, like me you have got yourself Windows 8 recently and you want a decent remote desktop app to hook up to then i definitely recommend you check out this app.Google+ Profile
I’ve spent a decent amount of time now with the ARM-based Samsung Series 3 Chromebook. The cheap price (£229 from PCWorld) and what seemed like gorgeous design won me over straight away, and since then I’ve been running the device through its paces to see how usable it is day in and day out.Google+ Profile
Generally speaking, I’m not a great believer in phone cases. Having said that, I pretty much always use on one my phones. However, I have very specific requirements around what is allowed to wrap itself around my beautiful (and expensive) smartphone.
I feel pain right down to my core whenever I see an expensive smartphone wrapped up in some bulky, ugly case. It’s just plain disrespectful, to both the phone and the engineers that spent (probably) months designing this thing so it fits in your hand perfectly, and making sure that it’s pleasing to the eye! (Well ok, sometimes those engineers probably deserve being kicked out of the door but we’re talking in an ideal world here!).Google+ Profile
A lot of people have a lot of thoughts about the price of the new Nexus 4 from Google, what this means for consumers, what this means for manufacturers. I though I’d chip in with my own thoughts to get this topic open for discussion! Feel free to let me know if you agree with me, or thing I’m talking a load of old b*11*ck$ below!Google+ Profile
1. Facelock for Apps Pro [FREE] and [$2.99]
Smartphones and tablets (PDA’s) could only be used with a stylus once upon a time, now we have very nice capacitive screens but the need for a stylus is not completely removed, you can draw, write, or just use the device without the need to use a finger… but finding a good stylus and certainly one at a good price is not easy at all, as I found out.
Then a company called MediaDevil approached me (on twitter) to tell me about a stylus they offered, the MagicWand, I did some research and decided to take a look at one, here is my views.
