3 Apps You Need to Own Right Now

Apps are what make our smartphones so important to us, not just the phone itself. Without so many great applications available on Android, then who knows, maybe we would all have iOS devices. Thankfully, that is not the case.

Whenever we are setting up a new device, there is a set list of apps we instantly download from Google Play, as using our phones without them would just be unfulfilling.

Below, we will go over 3 apps that always get loaded onto our devices. The point being, if you don’t already have these apps installed yourself, then we recommend you check them out immediately.

Asana Finally Gives Android Users a Native App

Asana, the popular teamwork productivity app, finally has a native Android app. For those of you who have had the unfortunate pleasure of using the previous HTML5 app, you know how big of a deal this is. The new app took six months to make, not only because the Asana team wanted to get it right, but also to make sure it kicked booty. The new app marries Asana’s visual design with “the best of Google’s new Material Design,” along with months of research and development.  (more…)

Motorola pushed an update to the Migrate application this week, bringing not only an updated Material Design look, but more functionality for users.

This Icon Pack is Hot: Difft

In the past, we have taken in icon pack submissions from you, compiled the best into a single post and then shared in an ongoing “5 Fresh” series. Today, we are doing away with the “5 Fresh” series, so that we can get you awesome icon packs to consider on a much more frequent basis. It’s not that we didn’t love putting together those lists, it’s just that there are so many good icon packs out there that need to be shared while they are hot, not a couple of months down the road when we find time to put together five of them. So, enter the “This Icon Pack is Hot” feature that we will attempt to post much more regularly to get you the goods quicker than anybody.

To kick off the new feature, we thought we should take a look at Difft, an icon pack that wants to be different.  (more…)

Hilarious Turn of Events: Carrier-Backed Payment System That Tried to Block Google Wallet Might be Bought by Google

You remember Isis Mobile Wallet don’t you? That would be the mobile payment system that carriers – specifically, Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile – created to be the only payment system you would need on your phone. That would also be the payment system that carriers used as reason to help block, but not admit-to-blocking, while still blocking because it was “different,” Google Wallet, for years while they took their sweet time getting Isis ready. And let’s not forget that the service has already been renamed to Softcard because of the growing entity known for terrorism that the original name matched. All caught up on Softcard and Isis?

According to a late Friday report out of TechCrunch, the payment system has been a massive failure to this point and is now in talks with Google to potentially be acquired.  (more…)

Friday App Sales: Metal Slug Titles, Back in Bed, Remote Desktop Client, and More

If you head over to Google Play at this very moment, or at least sometime over the next couple of days, you can find a few great deals on apps to help keep you busy this weekend.

To top it off, a launcher called TSF Launcher 3D Shell is available at 50%, one which you may recall from a couple of years ago. It might be considered one of the most over-the-top launchers available. Finally, a great game called Back to Bed is on sale, which can provide hours of entertainment for just $2.
