Timetablr Helps You Stay in School
Back when I was in school, I had quite the difficult time remembering which classes to attend every day. In fact on more than a few occasions, I found myself in the wrong classroom—at the wrong time—when I could have been sound asleep. Eventually, I ended up carrying a weekly planner with me to see my schedule at a glance. However, this is far too analog of a solution for the digital world of today.
Now that we’ve been given the gift of nearly ubiquitous Android-powered devices, wouldn’t it be nice if our smartphones could make us… smarter? Thanks to the new application Timetablr by XDA forum member Ravrahn, this is now a reality. Timetablr is a class scheduler that keeps track of what classes are on your daily agenda so that you don’t have to. It isn’t very complicated, but its simplicity is part of the appeal. Combine the convenience with aesthetics that fit handedly with the new Android design guidelines, and you’ve got yourself a winner.
In the words of the developer:
Timetablr is an app that does one simple thing – store a school timetable and display it. I’ve never found any decent apps for displaying my school timetable on my phone, so I thought I ought to make one myself. Hopefully, I did a decent job, and I thought others might find it useful. It’s my first Android app, so forgive me if it’s too basic and slightly rubbish. I hope to make more, better apps in the future, and if you like this one, expressing such through the Android Market’s ratings system would be most appreciated.
Those looking to get started can find Timetablr in the application thread.

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
