Handy Emergency Widget For Your Android

People who travel all over the world normally don’t take heed on other people’s warnings. Because of that, many of them get in trouble and really have no idea how to ask for help or who to call. Each and every country (or at least most of them) will have a number to call in case of emergency. In the US as well as in several other countries, this number is 911. However, when you truly are in a bind and can’t really get to your dialer, you have to ask yourself… if only my Android device had an easy way for me to call for help. Thanks to XDA member oeN, now you can sit back and relax. His series of widgets include several different widgets that will dial various emergency numbers from all over the world. We feature in this article just one of them, but there are several which will suit your needs depending on the country that you are in.

Please leave some feedback if this was useful or if you have suggestions for the dev.

The 999 Widget makes it easier to dial the emergency number 999. Just place the widget in your home screen and use it everytime you find yourself in a emergency situation.
*Don’t forget to rate and comment the app*

You can find more information in the widget thread.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
