Mess With Your Friends With Network Spoofer

While the term “hacking” is often used incorrectly when dealing with Android, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t opportunities to actually hack something. While we certainly don’t condone malicious hacking, a friendly prank played on friends and family often doesn’t hurt. Users looking to play some jokes on their pals via their internet connection now can using an app that does all the hard work for you.

XDA Senior Member EdgaBimbam lets us know about Netwoork Spoofer, which allows users to have a little more control than is typically necessary on unsecured internet connections. As EdgaBimbam explains:

Network Spoofer lets you mess with the internet on other people’s computers.
Network Spoofer lets you mess with websites on other people’s computers – flip pictures, change Google searches, redirect websites, swap YouTube videos and many more features to come.

Of course, with any application that can be misused, you have your standard boilerplate warning:

DISCLAIMER: The developer(s) of this application are not in any way responsible for it’s use or misuse; only use it for demonstration purposes on networks for which you have permission to do so.

In other words, don’t do anything illegal. However, if you’re looking for a fun prank and have been given permission to mess with someone else’s network, it may be worth a try.

The app itself can be found on Google Play. To get in on the discussion, visit the original thread.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
