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.

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...
