In Need of Some Random Inspiration?

Can’t decide what password you want? How about a random number between 17 and 86291037? Need a quote to start off that essay? Don’t know what to name your 10 pet tadpoles? We’re all accursed by that inspiration-blank, spoiled with choice yet not knowing what you want. Perhaps the application Random can help you out.

Developed by XDA Senior Member plbelanger, Random is an app that generates random numbers, passwords, dates, colors, and more. The app presents a clean and simplistic user interface that’s easy to navigate and free of clutter.

Pressing on a category will bring you to a screen asking for various variables that you may want the app to filter through such as the number of answers to generate, maximum amount of characters, male or female or unisex names, as well as many others depending on what category is selected. There are also refresh and share buttons. Categories include:

  • Numbers
  • Passwords
  • Number sequences
  • Calendar Dates
  • Quotes
  • Colors
  • Dice Roller
  • Names
  • Patterns
  • Color Palettes

Kudos must also be given to plbelanger for their activity in the XDA forum thread implementing requests for additional categories that users may want to see in Random in the future.

Random is available to all devices running Android versions 2.2 and newer, and is available for free from the Play store. So if this sounds useful to you, make sure to check out the original thread for more details.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
