Huawei File Manager and Cloud+ Drive for All ICS Devices

With new devices comes new software, and with new software invariably come ways to bring that software to the masses. Whether it’s Beats Audio from HTC, Bravia stuff from Sony, or even TouchWiz from Samsung, developers often take OEM-specific software and spread them to other devices. On that note, anyone running Ice Cream Sandwich can now take advantage of some new Huawei software, namely their File Manager and Cloud+ Drive.

XDA Forum Member harisn has posted the applications for anyone running ICS. So far it’s been tested on at least the Samsung Nexus S. The file manager is simply a file manager, and really it only stands to add options to the already solid list of file managers. It should be noted, however, that it does not always work right with devices lacking a MicroSD slot. Says harisn:

SD Card option in File Manager will not work / crash on Android phones with no (or virtual) SD card slots i.e Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Rest of the app works great!

Cloud+ Drive gives users 5 GB of free, and thus might be worth installing even if you’re not the biggest fan of Huawei. Of course, you need to have the  File Manager installed before trying Cloud+ Drive, as the two work together. It should also be noted that if these work well for enough devices, harisn plans on releasing the following apps:

camera, music, keyboard, sound recorder and Huawei’s DLNA apps that works perfectly fine on my phones!

So if you’re looking for some Huawei goodness, check out the original thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

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...
