The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.

TrueCaller version 1.30
CallerID is an old technology that many people have been using for a long time for home phones. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was something similar for smartphones to help them live up to its name?
User namiran has developed TrueCaller that will recognize the origin of the phone call and display the registered name for that phone number. The application can block incoming calls, report and notify the user of calls coming from spam callers. There is a plethora of features that may be extremely useful for even a casual user.

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
