Never Miss a Show Again with TeeVee
If you’re the kind of person who sees an ad for a TV show and must watch it, this app might just be of use to you. TeeVee is an application developed by XDA Forum Member Masterwork that allows you to search for your favorite television shows and view their upcoming (and past) schedules. It even syncs with your Google calendar, so you can always be reminded about something you want to watch. Sure, most set top boxes will allow you to set a reminder, but that only works if you’re forever sitting in front of your television, and I’m sure most of you aren’t. However I’m pretty confident that most of us here are never more than three feet away from our phones.
The app itself has a pretty simple interface that allows you to search for your favorite shows and group them together, allowing you quick and easy access to their schedules. There’s also a widget for keeping the info right on your home screen. The app runs on Android 2.1 and upwards, and is available from the original thread, so go download it now and never miss an episode of Ugly Betty or My Little Pony Ever Again.

Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
