Catena Gives Anonymous, Location-Based Chats

There are many ways to chat with people on our mobile devices, ranging from dozens of IM services, IRC chat, and many more. After all, one of the most wonderful things about the Internet is the ability to communicate with people everywhere, regardless of geographical location. Now, there is a chat application that connects you anonymously with people in your general area.

XDA Forum Member Jeffail has posted an application called Catena. It’s an application that connects you to chats with other people based on where you are. It has a number of interesting features as well. Jeffail explains the app further:

The main purpose of Catena is to give you an anonymous outlet for calling out to others in your local area and meeting new people, without the burden of identity. Catena lets you chat in a typical instant chat environment, but also lets you post semi-permanent messages on a shared map, for the whole world to see!

This app has a lot of fun and practical uses for people who want to interact with others in their area. If you’re into that sort of thing, this is an app to try out.

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
