Quickoffice Pro HD launches for Android Honeycomb tablets (Download Squad)

Mar 28th 2011 5:41PM This is what I assumed would happen. Big Android developers would eschew the Fragments API for double-dipping into their customers wallets. No need to sell one app for both their phone and tablet when you can sell two!

Must-have Firefox 4 add-ons for Chrome and Internet Explorer converts (Download Squad)

Mar 22nd 2011 1:40PM @clondike7 You must not pay attention. There's plenty of Chrome articles, and even some IE articles (sadly).

Firefox 4's best restartless add-ons (Download Squad)

Mar 22nd 2011 11:28AM @rl78 FF still has to reload all the tabs and restart addon sessions. For people who have quite a few tabs, or whose extensions keep track of varying information, a restart is still a jarring experience.

On the other hand, a browser restart can clear up some of that precious virtual memory that Firefox can tend to hoard, especially if you're a heavy visitor of Youtube and other flash sites.

AppBrain vs. Android Market Web Store, which one will rule supreme? (Download Squad)

Feb 3rd 2011 12:46PM I've been using Cyrket for a while, even with AppBrain out there. The official Android Market site is even more attractive. Why? AppBrain has TOO MUCH clutter. It's hard to sort out what's important, like a description, reviews, comments (from users) and a way to install, versus all the social links or extraneous verbiage and linkages. I'd prefer to take in all the information in a glance, rather than sit on a page for several minutes, hunting for the information I need.

So while AppBrain gives us more information than the Android Market site, it delivers an overload of that information and consequently scares away many potential users. Sorry, I'll stick with the official site.

Kongregate Arcade pulled from the Android Market for violating terms (Download Squad)

Jan 19th 2011 9:38PM @levyshai Amazon would likely partner with manufacturers, especially for devices outside Google's normal paid market regions, or devices that don't fit Google's standards for market, like the Streak and Tab.

Zeam hands on: a lightweight and minimalist Android launcher (Download Squad)

Jan 11th 2011 1:45PM @Sebastian Anthony *Scratches head* Not sure if the last comment I made went through. Comment system glitches and all...

I'd be nice to see a review of ADW launcher. It comes standard in Cyanogen as well as quite a few other roms by now. I think there's even some testing done that shows ADW's memory usage is less than the stock Android launcher's.

Zeam hands on: a lightweight and minimalist Android launcher (Download Squad)

Jan 11th 2011 1:30PM Again, DLS is reviewing an Android launcher, but they have yet to review the two most popular ones: ADW and Launcher Pro.

Sparrow, the minimalist Mac email client, now has Gmail shortcuts and quick labels (Download Squad)

Dec 21st 2010 2:45PM And Thunderbird is still cost free and ad free.
