Feel Who Is Sending You Anything with WhoIsIt for Android
You are probably familiar with ringtone assigning programs for Smartphone devices. Basically, the apps allow a group of users or individual users to have a specific ringtone, so even without looking at the screen, you will know who calls you when. XDA member awjones has taken this concept a few steps further out with WhoIsIt Beta. The app allows the user to assign ringtones and also vibration patterns to specific users or groups. However, this not only applies to phone calls like most other apps. You can set this for SMS, MMS, and even e-mails, so in essence, you will know when you got that important contract by e-mail, even if you don’t look at your device.

Other features include:
You can find more information in the application thread.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
