Amazon Appstore for Android hands-on review: Android Market is in trouble

Earlier today Amazon released its long-awaited Appstore for Android. Fundamentally it's very similar to Google's first-party Android Market or the third-party AppBrain, but it has a few Amazonian differences that could set it apart from the competition very quickly. First and foremost, Amazon is promising to give away one paid app for free every day. Today it's Angry Birds Rio, and it only...

Corel releases VideoStudio Pro X4, we go hands on (video)

Corel seems to be on a roll lately; after releasing WinZip System Utilities just last week, this morning the company announced VideoStudio Pro X4. VideoStudio Pro is aimed at home users and small business professionals who want to create professional-looking videos, but without the hassle, steep learning curve and price of Adobe Premiere Pro and the likes. This new version introduces...

IMDb Android app update brings major redesign, trailers, global showtimes, and more

The official IMDb app for Android just got a big update, and it does not disappoint. Along with a complete design-overhaul, the app has been stuffed full of IMDb goodness to the point that it's now more enjoyable to use than the actual website itself. The redesign is very sleek. They've basically taken the original palette and layout, expanded it all, and turned up the sexy. As nice as it...

Twitter for Android hands on: Voyeur mode and a sleeker interface await you

Twitter's official Android app got a pretty hefty update today, which brought some added features along with a complete makeover. All in all, the update is a positive move for Twitter, since it brings the app into a more current style of design while giving Twitter Search a bit more prominence and functionality. For one, the app now bears a striking resemblance to Twitter for Mac, which makes...

CorelDRAW tutorial: Trace, vectorize and modify a simple logo (video)

This is the second CorelDRAW tutorial in a series of four. Last week we looked at how to make a Polaroid-like image, and this week I'd like to show you how to vectorize a simple logo. I use the Android logo in the video, but you can do this with pretty much any logo other simple graphic. There are many reasons why you might like to vectorize an existing logo. Perhaps you need to modify it,...

Swype vs. SlideIT: Battle of the Android keyboard swipers

When you've got an itty-bitty touch-screen and need to pound out a quick email, the last thing you're going to want to do is type. I mean, tapping out a text message is fine every now and then, but when you're forced to type more than a couple of lines when you're on the go, sliding is definitely the way to go. Sliding keyboards utilize the fact that each word, as it is typed, tends to create...

CorelDRAW video tutorial: Make a Polaroid-like image in five minutes

When most people hear the words "vector graphics", the first thing that comes to mind is Adobe Illustrator. While Illustrator is a wonderful application, it's certainly not the only game in town: I've been using CorelDRAW for several years now, and I just love it. I'm not a graphics pro by any stretch of the imagination, but I do need to turn out a few pretty pixels here and there for my day...

Hands-on: Gentle Alarm for Android is a beautiful way to wake up

When I listed Gentle Alarm as one of my top Android apps, I promised a more in-depth review -- and here it is! Here are the key features of the app that's been (successfully!) waking me up every morning for the past several weeks. Profiles One of the best concepts in Gentle Alarm is that not all alarms are exactly alike. The Profiles screen lets you set up individual alarm "types". As you can...

Camera + 2.0 hands on: iPhone shooter makes a triumphant return to the app store

It's been a long time coming, but TapTapTap's Camera+ -- one of the best camera apps for the iPhone -- is now back in the App Store and updated to version 2.0. The new version loads more quickly, feels snappier, and adds plenty of new features and photo filters. Unfortunately, Camera+ users have to make do without the "volume snap" feature that got the app pulled by Apple earlier this year....

NetFront Browser for Android: Hands-on

NetFront is a free browser for Android with a few features I haven't seen on any other browser. I took it for a spin, and created a gallery for your viewing pleasure. Now let's look at those features: Tilt Mode Reading webpage text on a tiny screen can be pretty irritating. In portrait mode, the characters are tiny -- and in landscape mode not many lines fit on the screen. Most people just make...
