See What You Were Missing With Smartwebs’ Privacy Browser

If you are among the thousands of people who browse the internet while at work or in places where your access is somewhat restricted due to firewalls, pesky IT people (no offense to anyone), or simply because your country does not allow you to visit certain sites, your troubles are close to over thanks to the efforts of XDA Forum Member smart_desk. Privacy browser allows you to bypass any and all security measurements by redirecting your browsing experience by the magic of proxy surfing.

The app can do many things such as hide your IP address, makes your surfing experience entirely anonymous, allows for modifiable cookies, and provides you with a large list of proxy servers and multiple IP addresses among other things. The app also has a rather simple and easy to use interface, so you have to do very little to allow you to enjoy the web as it was meant to be. The dev does mention that streaming video is not supported unfortunately, and that the app contains ads to help pay for external server costs.

So, if you feel that you are missing out on important Facebook updates because of your company policy, now is your chance to get back on track. Please leave some feedback for the dev if you happen to try this out.

Studying in a college where social networking site like facebook is blocked ?

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...
