Bring Your Friends Together with GroupMe

Written on March 25, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

Save yourself some typing and dialing with ‘GroupMe’, a group-texting and conference-calling app for your Android phone.

GroupMe allows you to send out mass email or text message to a group at once, making it very useful if you have a number of people you need to stay in touch with.

According to AndroidApps.com, “There are a ton of different possible scenarios where GroupMe would be really useful: If you’re working on a group project with classmates, if you run some kind of Internet business and need to keep in touch with your employees or freelance employees who don’t live nearby, or if you have a very close group of friends who get together often.”

Get started by creating an account, and then make groups for your contacts. The app gives you a few suggested topics like family, college friends, etc., but you can create as many different groups as you’d like, with whatever titles you think are better. Then, you can start adding contacts to each group.

Other GroupMe users can also request to join your group: There’s an option in the app to make a group joinable

When you’re don sorting your groups, you can already send out group texts and even make conference calls. Another cool feature of GroupMe is that the app gives each group a unique phone number, allowing any member to dial and initiate a conference call.

Aside from being practical, GroupMe is easy to use and navigate – it’s positively worth checking out.

Android App Review: A Music Journey with Shazam

Written on February 27, 2011 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

"If you believe that: Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul, then don't let music get away just like that, Shazam is here." ---AllWeLike

Can you actually live without music? Can you carry on a day without listening to any song? Can you spend 24 hours without humming a tune? The answer: NO. Believe it or not, music is a part of you.

This saying seems to remind us that we can’t have it all at the same time. Never expect everything is within reach all at the same time. Just like our sentiment over music. You just can’t grab it and feel free to grasp it as long as you want to. Making it yours to live on forever. There will be some sad times where you stand in the middle of a crowded street and you hear something, then suddenly you fell in love with it but you just know you just can’t get it all of a sudden. Then poof! No more song, no more love. However, keep a little faith. You can actually have it now.

The Kindle for Android Upgrade is Now Here

Written on September 24, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

With voice search, annotations and other significant add ons, who would say that Kindle is not the e-reader of the millennium?

Amazon released today an upgrade for its Kindle for Android app. And it’s FREE! Giving Android users a numerous convenient features that were available on Kindle services. With the ability to perform full-text searches of e-books by type and voice, browse Wikipedia and a lot more. Readers can also put notes and highlights to the texts, automatically syncing their e-readers and Kindle apps on other mobile devices.

Although this is just an upgrade to the original version, it still lacks some functionality on apps for Apple products. Such as the embedded audio and video clips. It does not allow you to change fonts, navigate by page number etc.

Even if there are a few flaws, we still think it’s brilliant. Let us know your views.
