AVG LiveKive to launch as Dropbox alternative

When you think of AVG, you probably think antivirus -- probably because it has sat near the top of Download.com's list of most downloaded apps for years. AVG has been tapped by tens of millions of users for malware protection, and the company now hopes those same people will turn to it for synchronized cloud storage. Called AVG LiveKive, the new service will launch in beta form next week --...

Firefox 4 beta 11 released, more bugs stomped, beta 12 still to come

While the main Firefox beta website has not yet been updated, Firefox 4 beta 11 is now ready to be downloaded from Mozilla's FTP site. [en-US build / en-GB build] As far as we're aware, this is just another milestone on the way to the release candidate; in other words, it's a bug-stomp release, so it'll be both faster and more stable than beta 10. If you're still holding off because of its beta...

uTorrent Android app manages torrents, pushes downloads to your device

We've played with some good remote torrenting apps in the past, but now, at long last, the most popular desktop torrent client has a companion app as well. uTorrent Remote for Android is available for download from the Android Market, and it's one of the slickest mobile torrent apps we've seen. With uTorrent Remote you can fully manage your uTorrent desktop client: add and remove downloads,...

iOS 4.3 Beta 3 available to developers

Apple has just released iOS 4.3 Beta 3 to developers. This is the third Beta of the upcoming version of iOS in as many weeks, and it's called 8F5166b. It's available, as you can see from the picture above, for iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation. A separate package is also available for the 2nd generation Apple TV. According to AppAdvice, the iOS 4.3 betas allow...

BlackBerry OS 6 beta available to download and try

Though it's currently only available for three of its devices, RIM has posted a beta download of BlackBerry OS 6. If you own a BlackBery Bold 9700, Bold 9780, or Curve 3G 9300 and you happen to be a T-Mobile customer, head on over to the Beta Zone and download OS 6 for your device if you'd like to try it out. Sure, the 9780 already ships with OS6, but the beta version will give you a glimpse of...

Avast 6 beta buffs up free antivirus with better sandboxing, new Web protection

It may have taken a long time for Avast to move from version 4 to 5, but that's not going to be the case with Avast 6. A beta version has been made available for download, and there are plenty of new features that will make Avast 6 a worthy antivirus program for Windows. Two technologies which were introduced in paid editions of Avast 5 -- the Web Script Shield and site blocking -- have been...

Songbird app for Android goes beta, we go hands-on

Using Songbird on your desktop or laptop to listen to your cavernous collection of digital music? Good news -- the Songbird team has been working in "super seekrit" (their words, not ours) on bringing you a pocket-sized version for your Android device. Even better, they've announced the availability of the first public beta of Songbird for Android -- and we took it for a spin. Here's the quick...

Internet Archive Wayback Machine introduces new beta version with calendar view

The Internet Archive's Wayback Machine uses open source software to search archived webpages going back to the days of the dotcom boom, and it just got a lot more useful with the addition of a new beta version. The beta includes more archived webpages than ever before, as well as a new calendar view that makes it easy to find the specific version of a page you're looking for. The Internet...

RealPlayer for Android gets an improved interface, landscape mode, and more

The RealPlayer app for Android has gotten a major update, and it's all because of user input! OK, so Real may be playing that angle up a bit in its official blog post, but it's clear from playing with the updated media app that it's taking suggestions and criticism seriously. In addition to a generally improved and more polished interface, RealPlayer for Android has added a landscape "now...

Mflow is a snazzy new music discovery Web app

Mflow is a new music discovery app I came across in the Chrome Web Store -- though as with many "apps" there, it was little more than a bookmark with a pretty icon. In truth, the mflow (yes, it's all lower case...) beta works in any browser. Sign yourself up, or simply log in with your Facebook account and choose a username. After that, it's all about searching, following, and "flow"-ing. When...

Apple iOS 4.3 Beta and 4.3 SDK now available to developers

iOS 4.3, the next iteration of Apple's mobile operation system, is now in beta. Apple just posted both the new version of the OS and the new SDK in the iOS Dev Center. There's also a beta software update for Apple TV, which will allow iOS 4.3 apps to stream media to your Apple TV via AirPlay. MacStories is reporting that iOS 4.3 also brings new 4-and-5-finger gestures to the iPad, including a...

Internet Explorer 9 beta downloaded more than 20 million times

The downloads keep on coming for the Internet Explorer 9 beta. According to a new post on the Exploring IE blog, IE9 has now been downloaded more than 20 million times since its release in September 2010. It's also worth noting that IE9 market share has nearly reached half a percent -- not bad at all for a beta browser, especially one from Microsoft. And it's not just end users who have been...

Firefox 4 beta 3 for Android hands on: Mozilla browser hits the Market

Mozilla has released a new beta of Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo to keep the mobile browser in step with its desktop cousin, and it packs a number of important improvements. Perhaps the most noticeable one on Android is that you can now find Firefox in the Market, meaning future updates will be a smoother process -- just make sure you uninstall any previous beta versions before downloading from...

Firefox 4 beta 8 now available for download

While the main download link hasn't updated yet at getfirefox.com/beta, the latest beta release of Firefox 4 is ready for download from Mozilla's FTP servers. With Beta 7 already being feature complete, Beta 8 is all about squashing bugs and shining up the browser in anticipation of its release. It was a little slow in the coming, but frankly we're just glad to see FF4b8 surface before time ran...

Weet Twitter client for Mac hits beta, already looks promising

Mac Twitter junkies have been waiting quite a while for a replacement for the much-neglected Tweetie for Mac, and it may have just arrived. Weet for Mac has just entered Beta, and it lives up to the excellent iOS version of Weet, albeit with some kinks to work out. The general line on Weet (both the iOS version and the Mac beta) is that it's what Tweetie would have become if it hadn't been...
