Mobile Minute: Free EA games for UK and Ireland Palm Pre users!

With Palm's webOS App Catalog finally starting to roll out paid applications around the world, EA Mobile and Palm seem to be enticing folks to start using the App Catalog with a trio of free games. Unfortunately, in order to nab the three downloads -- Need for Speed Underground, Monopoly and The Sims 3 -- you'll need to be in the UK or Ireland. If you're one of the folks with a Palm Pre in you...

Facebook for webOS loses its Twitter envy and finally becomes useful

It's been a little while since Facebook launched their (admittedly barebones) application for Palm's webOS devices -- that's the Pre and Pixi to you and I. However, in amongst the news of the webOS 1.4 update dropping earlier this week, Facebook have also released an all-new version of the application that adds a number of useful features. Whilst the original version was handy for checking on y...

Mobile Minute: Palm's 2010 plans for webOS

In case you're wondering why your RSS reader has gone into overdrive, it just so happens to be Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week -- and that means that all the mobile companies bar one (Apple!) are announcing their new devices and software. Today's turn is underdog Palm, who've been outlining their plans for the webOS platform. [Images courtesy of our brethren at Engadget]...

Mobile Minute: Palm webOS 1.3.5 is now available

It's been just over a month since Palm last updated their webOS devices, however today the Palm Pre has seen webOS 1.3.5 released (well, at least in the US). The update is notable, albeit for the items that the update does not address: video recording is still missing, and there's no sign of the Pre's iTunes syncing being re-enabled with this new release either. That said, if you're sporting a ...

Mozilla on Firefox Mobile: All your app store are belong to us!

Oh my... not content with finally being at the stage where they're ready to release a working version of their 'Fennec' mobile web browser (albeit only for the Maemo based Nokia N900 initially), Mozilla seem to be on something of a mad world-domination-power-trip at the same time. Why? Well, Mozilla have declared that Firefox Mobile will render all existing device application stores redundan...

HTC offers additional Hero / Droid Eris widgets via Android Market

In a move that marks a change of direction for the device manufacturer, HTC have just released four additional Hero / Droid Eris widgets for download in the Android Market. The initial release offers 'Battery', 'Dice', 'Tip Calculator' and 'Today in History' widgets for download free of charge, though it should be noted that the widgets are Sense UI widgets rather than standard Android widge...

Evernote for Android is finally here

If you're currently a user of Evernote, the awesome note storing solution AND you're packing an Android device, then today is the day to finally rejoice as the Evernote client for Android is available now, free, on the Android Market! Comprehensively featured (yet with 'big plans for 2010'), the new client allows you to collect text based notes, camera images or audio clips for synchronisati...

Nimbuzz brings multi-network chat to the BlackBerry

There are plenty of competing chat apps for iPhone and Android, but BlackBerry users have, thus far, been left out in the cold in terms of multi-service chat clients. Nimbuzz is stepping in to plug that hole, though, with a BlackBerry-native app that allows you to chat over AIM, Gtalk, MSN, Skype, Facebook and more. Being a native app means Nimbuzz can run in the background and take advantage o...

SEVEN on Android - Ah, push it - push it real good...

The SEVEN Beta setup is an interesting one. As a company, Seven (enough capitalising already!) sell their excellent push e-mail products only via mobile operator channels, however their Beta program is an excellent way for users on unsupported carriers (that's likely you and I) to enjoy their software. Available in a variety of editions on a variety of platforms, Seven's software allows y...

Opera 10 Beta for Windows Mobile released

Over the past few years, Opera Mobile has become the browser of choice for the majority of Windows Mobile users. Shipped as the default browser on many devices and available as download for others, Opera Mobile addresses the many failings of the preinstalled IE browser with better performance, variable zoom and text reflowing as well as a polished and intuitive UI. Pushing the mobile bro...

Mobile Minute: Palm WebOS 1.3.1 is out!

If you're one of the folks sporting a Palm Pre, it's time to check for updates as you'll want to grab the WebOS 1.3.1 update that dropped over the weekend (at least for Sprint customers in the US). Whilst there's no new applications, the update (which weighs in at 126MB) packs a tonne of features and improvements that you'll probably want add, including support for Yahoo! as a synchronization a...

Mobile Minute: Open GL and Flash support coming soon to your Blackberry

Not being pretty and white, nor slender, shiny and fashionable, the BlackBerry devices don't get as much attention as its SoCal sister the iPhone. But that doesn't mean the clever folks over at RIM aren't busy developing and releasing exciting new technologies for their latest OS 5.0 devices! You just don't hear about them quite so often, which I hope to rectify with this little bit of news. As...

Palm makes WebOS app catalog browseable on the web - you know, like Apple's should be

Sometimes I'd like to see what new apps are available for my iPod Touch on the App Store on a system that doesn't have iTunes installed. In their infinite wisdom, however, Apple has decided that this just isn't the way things work on the desktop. You'll use iTunes and you'll damn well like it, buddy. Palm Pre owners (and curious types) can now enjoy a bit more open experience. As it turns out,...

Mobile Minute: DIY cradle from cardboard coffee sleeve

It's amazing how expensive cradles are for mobile devices. Most users realize that there is a big premium being charged for what amounts to a formed piece of plastic, and it makes them less likely to pony up the big bucks for a device that holds their phone. Luckily, this is an area where a little DIY creativity can help. A Download Squad tipster pointed us to their YouTube video describing how to...

Mobile Minute: anonymous browsing with TOR comes to Android

When it comes to anonymous browsing on a desktop PC, getting set up is pretty straightforward. The widely used Tor Network provides a software bundle to install on your machine which allows you to connect via a virtual proxy to their network, which reroutes your traffic between constantly varying nodes. This makes it impossible for you to be traced as you go about your business on the web and it...
