IOS and Android list is in no particular order:

  1. Facebook.IOS. Android. No intro needed
  2. Todo. IOS. AndroidMac and Windows. Great app to keep your todos. Best part is that you can sync list across multiple devices i.e Android, IOS, Mac, PC.
  3. Shazam. IOS. Android. Don’t know the song you’re listening to? Shazam it.
  4. iTV Shows. IOS. Android Tv Show Fav. If you’re like me following a number of different TV shows then this app is perfect for you. It gives you the airing date of the chosen shows with a brief intro. It can also send you alerts when your shows air.
  5. Team Viewer.IOS. Android. Mac.PC. It provides access to your windows or mac when you’re away.

Life Straw

We depend on water for survival.More than 40% of the worlds population is deprived of household safe piped water. Thanks to population growth, global warming and pollution clean water is becoming less and less. The demand for water is doubling every 20 years and before 2030 this demand will exceed the world’s supply by over 50 percent.  All this is where lifestraw comes in.  Read more »

Fabrik Reader Android App.

Fabrik reader is new on the Android market. What makes this reader different from others is the ability to sync your ebooks with your dropbox. Now whats great about this feature is that it also sync’s the reading progress on multiple devices, so if you’re reading a book on your tab and for some reason decide to finish it on your phone, you can. The tablet optimized two column landscape reading mode makes it ideal for any tabs.

Supported E-book formats include txt, ePub and mobi formats with support for more to come soon.

Check out Fabrik free on the play store

Withings Baby Monitor

In todays day and age parents are becoming more and more obsessive about monitoring their kids especially infants. There are numerous baby audio and video monitors available in the market for this purpose. Heck…..Ive got a few of them in my house as well

The most annoying part for me at least is setting up the camera especially if one wants the feeds to be accessed when your away from home. It usually involved getting a static IP or paying a premium for port forwarding services. Then of course theres the added expense for the App(Android, IOS, Symbian etc)

Withing has come up with a great product. Setting up is simple. You pair it with your device via bluetooth and it takes care of the rest. What I really like about it is the fact that it uses a rechargeable battery so you could just pick it up and put it in different rooms without any hassle. Since its bluetooth capable you can take it places which don’t offer WIFI and still monitor our kids. Read more »

Root Galaxy Note 10.1

Android without root is like a cell phone without an expansion slot. You can still use it but limited space means all your great videos, Photos, Mps etc cant be there.

One of the 1st things I do with an android is Root it to unleash the true potential. Titanium backup root and Custom Roms alone are worth rooting a device.

Galaxy Note 10.1 is one of the fastest tablets around and courtesy rootgalaxynote.com and androidroot.org an indepth root video tutorial is available.

Please note that I will not be held responsible if you mess up your device in any way.

Below is the link to all the files required to Root your Note 10.1(N8000)

Root and CWM

Being an android fan one thing which is of the utmost importance to me is Rooting the device and trying custom ROM’s. It is only when you do this that one realises the true potential and capability of the Android OS.

The note 2.0 when launched in a weeks time will be the most powerful fablet there is. I cant wait to get my hands on it. Luckly for me and people alike CWM and Root is already out. Chenglu, a member on XDA has released a kernel which has both root and recovery. Head over to XDA and download the files and root away next week 🙂
