Keep Track Of Where You Park Your Car With Auto Finder For Android

Finding a parking spot in a big lot can be a headache, but what’s worse is forgetting where you parked your car. East garage? 3rd floor? Spot number 84? It’s not unusual for this to happen after, say, a tiring day at work. Fortunately, there’s an app for almost every problem nowadays and this one is no exception. If you’ve ever experienced the frustration of parking your car in a massive parking lot or a packed area and had trouble finding it later, then give Auto Finder a shot; a simple but functional app for Android that lets you mark your location whenever you leave your car. In fact, the app can also be set to do this job on its own whenever it detects you’re leaving your car via sensors such as Bluetooth...

View The Countries & Organizations Android Apps Send Data To With viaProtect

Following numerous leaks and revelations about NSA’s ‘PRISM’ internet surveillance program and other similar projects by international security firms, it’s become almost unthinkable to browse the web without some form of protection. On Android, there are already numerous ways to check what apps are sending or receiving data from the web, but the new app viaProtect goes a step further. The app – which is still in its preview stages – shows you the countries and services that each app’s internet traffic is going through, along with other security information and an overall security risk rating for your device...

Official RAR Archiving App Now Available for Android

For the uninitiated, file compression utilities can be fairly confusing due to a bewildering number of file formats out there, many of which are only supported by specific applications. For the power-users among us, a compression tool must also carry advanced settings to tweak every little detail. Most people used to employ file compression tools on computers, but since the advent of powerful smartphones, the task has become common on mobile devices as well. Finding a good file compression app, however, can be a confusing task unless the app is from an authoritative developer. The free RAR for Android from RARLAB – the team behind WinRAR – aims to help...

Google Now Launcher Hits The Play Store For Nexus & GPE Devices; Download APK Here

There are only so many times we can introduce Android with some variation of the phrase “is infinitely customizable”. We have discussed launchers like Dodol, Buzz, Smart Launcher and so many others to death already. However, these third party customizations have never been able to help alleviate that feeling of alienation. They might be excellent, but they don’t feel right; even the recently reviewed Aviate is no exception – it’s brilliant, but alien ground. Until now, that is. Google decided that its stock Android launcher should be available to download and released it to the the Play Store under the label Google Now Launcher...

bitmado For Android Auto-Switches Between Wallpapers From Its Very Own Social Community

Just when you think there are plenty of free wallpaper apps available at the Play Store, along comes another with more to offer. Called a ‘shuffling wallpaper engine’ by its developer, bitmado is a free addition to the genre that delivers a constant supply of new backgrounds so you don’t have to view the same old boring home screen every time you unlock your device. It’s a live wallpaper that automatically cycles through different backgrounds, selecting them from the content and feedback of its Reddit-like community, which lets users upload images of their own, and upvote or downvote those uploaded by other bitmado members. It’s like Muzei, but with social elements replacing extensions...

Disconnect Search Comes To Android; Allows Tracking-Free Google, Bing & Yahoo Queries

If you talk to people about NSA’s PRISM program, most will seem disinterested, probably because they fail to realize how much of their data is being monitored. Though, if you’re like me, all the hullabaloo that the program’s outing caused must have scared you. After all, it is believed to be collecting and analyzing data from pretty much every tech giant (Google, Facebook and the like), and could be listening in on your phone calls, monitoring your emails or checking in on your cloud drives. In October last year, the folks behind Disconnect – a Chrome and Firefox extension that blocks online data tracking – released another tool for the same browsers to protect your privacy while using search engines. Their latest solution, called Disconnect Search, has made its way to Android with the aim to provide a safer search environment on your mobile device by masking your IP address...

SwiP Is A Free Profile Switching Automation App For Android

Task automation has become quite popular among mobile users thanks to apps like Tasker. Tasker allows you to configure different scenarios based on current location, time, event and so on, and automatically trigger different actions based on those scenarios. For instance, if you want your phone to automatically switch to silent mode when connected for charging, or need to turn off WiFi when you’re on the road, you can easily achieve that using Tasker. The only caveat with Tasker is that it’s a paid app, and even though it’s worth every penny, most users rather not shell out the cash. If you’re looking for a free, or better yet, open-source alternative, give SwiP a go. Developed by XDA-Developers memberFlow-Chi, this new app automates switching between different device profiles. It is nowhere near as flexible or feature-rich as Tasker, but what it offers should be enough for the casual user. Plus, its simplicity makes it much easier to understand. Details after the jump...

Muzei Is An Amazing Android Live Wallpaper That Switches Backgrounds From Configurable Sources

Android stands tall over its competition in a lot of areas, mainly when it comes to customization possibilities and changing the overall look and feel of the device. One such element is the choice of wallpapers. If we look at the primary competitors, iOS started offering wallpaper customization pretty late in the day, and even those are not much use except on the lock screen, since the home screen is usually riddled with app icons that hide whatever you’ve set as the background. Likewise, Windows Phone wallpapers are visible only on the lock screen. With the variety of launcher and home screen choices that you get with Android, that’s the platform where having a different background truly shines...

CALCU Is A Powerful Android Calculator App With Gestures & Themes

Calculators, for most users, usually fall among the least used apps on smartphones, but as they are one of the essentials, all the current major mobile operating systems come packed with one. Though, be it Android, iOS or Windows Phone, the stock Calculator app is fairly basic. We’ve featured some powerful and unique third-party alternatives for Android, such as DLD Calc, MyScript Calculator and AirCalc, all of which bring a unique functionality to the table. A new addition to this genre called CALCU: The Ultimate Calculator, on the other hand, aims to rethink the entire experience. CALCU has actually been around for quite a few days and has already received some rave reviews from users. Apart from letting you carry out all kinds of calculations, the app comes with support for gestures, themes and interface customization...

Fancy Switcher Brings HTC Sense & Cover Flow-Inspired Multitasking To Android

There was a time when even the most diehard Android users would argue against the number of apps available for the platform. This no longer applies now, as Android has not only dominated the market by becoming the most widely used mobile OS, but the variety of apps has also increased. Developers now pay close attention to Google’s open source OS in order to provide unique app experiences not found on iOS or Windows Phone. Fancy Switcher is a new app from XDA-Developers member JKab that takes advantage of Android’s multitasking capabilities, and lets you switch apps in a fancier manner, showcasing app previews in neat cards (reminiscent of the HTC Sense app switcher) coupled with eye catching animations...
