T-Mobile CEO John Legere took to his company’s newsroom today to talk about how his crew is “firing on all cylinders.” In other words, T-Mobile is still killin’ it for the most part.
The wireless carrier added another 1.5 million new customers in the last quarter, making this their 5th consecutive quarter with at least 1 million or more net adds. In the past 15 months, T-Mobile has brought in a total of 7.6 million new customers, which is well, a lot. In fact, according to T-Mo’s numbers, they topped all of the other three major carriers combined in terms of postpaid phone adds. Not bad, right? (more…)
A massive update is now available for Wunderlist, titled Wunderlist 3, which the company claims to be the biggest update the app has ever received. With Wunderlist 3, users can create fantastic lists, but list-making isn’t the most important aspect of the app.
What sets this app apart from many others is that it is cross platform supported, as in supported on iOS, Mac, Android, Windows, Chrome OS, and Kindle Fire devices. That is quite the list of supported platforms, with Windows 8 and Windows Phone following along shortly according to the developers. (more…)
Another month down, another list of the best Android apps available is ready.
For the month of July, you can tell that we reconnected with an obsession over wallpaper apps, since three made it onto the list. Outside of eye candy, we also found an amazing app that lets you toggle system settings through Google Now without root, checked out the new NPR One app, and watched as Google brought Material Design to one of our most used apps, Chrome Beta.

The end of July as come, so it’s time to look at the best Android games that crossed our desks. This month, we saw the release of a few great Indie games, meaning that the titles didn’t have major backers funding their development. In a few cases, these games end up being some of the best, but of course, there is no doubt that big time publishers can push out great work too, as we saw with Gameloft in the release of Modern Combat 5: Blackout.
A couple of the games we list this month feature addictive characteristics, meaning it is easy to die in the game, but even easier to press “replay.” In addictive games, you want to try again, hoping to do better than you did the last round. Other games for this month include a puzzler, platformer, and a FPS title.
Starting today, after updating the official Hulu Plus app in Google Play, Android users are being treated to free content, courtesy of Hulu. For some odd reason, Hulu has granted Android users to sample free content, just as you would on their website from anywhere you are, as long as you have a data connection.
Undoubtedly an attempt to get you signed up for their monthly service, which runs $7.99, Hulu is allowing access to the latest and past episodes of a few good shows, including America’s Got Talent, and more.
Here is a excerpt from the company’s announcement. (more…)
