As good as it is, there is...

Control Your Computer from Your Mobile with Monect

One of the key advancements in the mobile industry is the fact that people want to break away from the chains of a desktop (and even laptop) computer. Not having to carry 5-7 lbs of tech on your back is always an interesting point to consider when deciding what you want to get for work/play....

Show Your HotSpot App Who’s Boss with HotSpot Control

HotSpot functionality: the forbidden apple of mobile telecommunications.

Add Your Favorite Mods on the Sony Xperia Arc

Not too long ago, we started covering how-to guides in the Epic 4G Touch section.

You run the risk of finding yourself with the dreaded bootloop if you forgot one simple step in the installation process. On top of this, the whole process is extremely time consuming, on many...

UNCOPT File Browser for all Your File Management Needs

Since the introduction of Ice Cream Sandwich, Android has been rather stringent on developers because of the whole Holo requirements set forth by Google.

Minimalistic Text Editor for Android

As mobile devices have evolved, so have the tools for performing every day tasks.
