Looking for Parking in the UAE?

Wait, what… Why in the UAE? OK, let’s take a few steps back first. Have you ever had a hard time finding parking in your city, any city? With so many cars on the road, that’s quite the universal struggle now. This is also something that XDA Recognized Developer GadgetCheck‘s app mPark is hoping to fix—even if it isn’t applicable to your area just yet.

The aptly-titled mPark app uses the SMS-based mPark parking allocation system. How it works is that it automates the process of sending a tediously-crafted SMS to reserve spots using the mPARK system so that you don’t have to. While there are certainly many more significant annoyances in life than struggling with SMS parking allocations, this should shave a significant amount of time for those using the service often. The app lets you pre-define cars to be used with the service so you don’t have to manually enter your vehicle’s tag number every time you wish to reserve a spot. It then allows you to select how long you wish to reserve a spot, as well as in which zone you wish to park.

Currently, Dubai is the app’s one and only supported city, so this certainly isn’t for everyone. However, more will be added in the future, and since mPARK is used in many large cities globally, this can become quite useful in the future. If you’re looking for hassle-free parking in Dubai or want to check out the app in hopes that your mPARK-enabled city is added soon, head over to the application 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...
