Push Notifications for Facebook – Android
XDA member rosenbaa29 told us about the publication of Push notifications for your Android device. Using Facebook and Twitter on an automatic refresh cycle to check for new messages can KILL your Androids battery, this application is presented as a solution for this.

Another option to have in mind, tell us what you think about it.

Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched. The hashtag "#TheNextGalaxy" does indeed point that the event will be the launchpad for a Galaxy device,...
Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures.
