SOS Application for Android

Simple but very concise and to the point, this app does exactly what it is meant to do, nothing more, and nothing less. An incredibly useful application to request help whenever this may be needed, from whoever we deem necessary. Created by XDA member giuvilas, version 1.3 of this came to the scene just a day after its original release.

The app basically sends an SMS to whoever you chose as the recipient. This message contains your location (coordinates) gathered by the GPS. The dev is still working on this app and will be glad to receive any feedback he can get.

Hi guys, finally Google has activeted my google app inventor account..so i started making my first application..that was the first thing that i thought.

Basically what this app do is to send with a text message your GPS position (address from google maps, latitude, longitude and accuracy)

The use is simple. You have to choose a contact (with the search button) and then touch the picture.

Yeah here there are really serious developers..but this application even though simple, useless..got my day!  ..btw i’ll try to improve it 

feedbacks are appreciated

You can get more information in the application thread.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
