FrostWire for Android brings quick, slick P2P file sharing to your phone

Until now, there hasn't been a true peer-to-peer application for Android, or indeed any smartphone. There are a slew of helper apps, like the excellent Transdroid, but their main purpose is to allow remote, on-the-move management of your installed-at-home BitTorrent and Gnutella clients. FrostWire is different: it brings P2P transfers to your phone -- yes, FrostWire shares ringtones, camera...

iOS Browser Review: iCab Mobile

Apple's mobile incarnation of Safari on iOS is certainly one of the best mobile browsers in the business. It's pretty fast, handles rendering well, and will even sync bookmarks with your desktop. But it's not perfect – there are many things it can't do, and although Apple won't allow browsers on the App Store that use their own rendering engines, there's a whole host of WebKit-based...

DLS Review: TweetDeck for Android seamlessly integrates Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and Google Buzz

I initially wanted to review TweetDeck for Android back in August, but ruefully I discovered that it only works with Android 2.1-and-later devices! Now, however, via the power of hacked Russian ROMs, I am using Android 2.1. Without further ado, then, TweetDeck for Android. Android apps with sensible interfaces are few and far between. Interfaces can vary so much between apps that it becomes...

Yahoo! Messenger: Is the iPhone-to-PC (and Android) video calling app a FaceTime challenger?

There was once a time when FaceTime was the only iPhone 4 video calling gig in town. Fring entered the ring first, but now Yahoo has joined the video calling party, with an update to their Yahoo! Messenger app. Unlike Apple's current implementation of FaceTime, Messenger allows you to video call over both Wi-Fi and 3G, but if that wasn't enough, you're no longer limited to iPhone-to-iPhone...

GetGlue is a slick, useful media check-in and recommendation engine

With all of the social networking and "check-in" services that are available these days, you might think you've seen it all. But there's one currently untapped, check-in-able experience left and that's media. GetGlue, a free app by AdaptiveBlue, thinks it has that niche covered, and in essence, it's like Foursquare for media. The idea is that every time you watch a TV show or movie, listen to...

Instagram photo filter and sharing app for iPhone

Here at Download Squad, we're always on the lookout for cool little mobile apps that are both fun to use and useful. Sometimes that involves tickling our creative side and that's where Instagram comes in. Instagram, like many other apps available on the iPhone, allows you to take an image and apply effect filters to it. Some like 'Lord Kelvin" age your photo, others such as "Inkwell" desaturate...

Google Goggles comes to iOS

Google Goggles has finally made its debut on Apple's iOS. Having been snapping pictures and searching the Web for a while on Android handsets, Goggles has now been rolled into the already feature rich Google mobile application for iOS. This means that big G now gives you three ways to find what you're looking for on an iPhone -- voice, photos, and plain old text search. Given the accuracy and...

DLS Review: Dolphin Browser HD is an amazing browser for Android

The stock Android browser is quite powerful and fast. For most users, it should be more than enough. Then again, there are those of us who always seem to need that bit of extra oomph – those power features that many users never find out about, or don't feel they would use. This is where Dolphin Browser HD comes in. It's an alternative browser for Android that is a study in great mobile UI...

DLS review: System Ninja complements CCleaner, doesn't replace it

Using the word "ninja" in the name of an application is a good way to grab a geek's attention. Enter System Ninja, a CCleaner-like cleaning and tune-up utility for Windows. After reading about System Ninja this morning on Freeware Genius, I decided to give it a go. In addition to performing file clean-ups, System Ninja includes a handful of other utilities. However, I don't need to use a...

DLS Review: Live Documents is almost like Office, but for the Web

I first got word of Live Documents via our trusty tipster, Forboden (Thanks!). And I have to say that it's impressive! The idea of an online office suite is far from new; Google Docs is the largest player in this market, but of course there's Zoho and Microsoft Office Live. So, what's Live Documents' claim to fame? Basically, they say that their solution is "more powerful than Microsoft Office"...

PSX4droid brings thousands of emulated PlayStation games to your Android phone

Earlier this week I reviewed NESoid, a tidy little Android app that lets you play the vast library of NES games on your smartphone. It's no surprise that my 600MHz smartphone can emulate the NES's 8-bit 1.8MHz (really!) processor -- but boy was I shocked when I installed PSX4droid and found I could (almost) play Final Fantasy VII on my phone. Note: just like the NES emulator, it's almost...

DLS Review: Add real-time chat to your website with Olark

I have been wanting to add visitor chat to my company's website for a while now. I think that when you have a fairly small site (for a small company), chat is a great way to get to know your customers and make them feel at home. An added bonus of using visitor chat is that it gives you a bit of real-time tracking data; you (the operator) can see approximately how many visitors are on your site at...

SwiftKey for Android is like Swype, but for hyper-conservative Amish types that love tap-tap-tapping

If you own an Android phone, I hope you have Swype installed. I don't think I'm overstating it when I say that Swype is by far the most awesomest input mechanism ever invented for software keyboards. But maybe you don't like swiping your finger across your screen. Maybe you like jabbing away at a hard, low-feedback, RSI-inducing touch screen. Maybe you're a closet masochist who likes...

Swype, the high-speed on-screen keyboard for Android opens up for public beta testing (and a video review)

Swype, if you've not heard of it before, is a new on-screen keyboard input method. It does away with the abhorrent, RSI-inducing finger-tip tapping method of input on today's smartphones. In fact, judging by the 'Swype vs. iPhone' video that TechCrunch pushed out last year, Swype might even be as fast as those little BlackBerry keyboards. But enough talk of iPhones and BlackBerrys -- Swype's...

Hands on with Fring, the all-in-one VoIP and IM app for Android

Today... my Android phone arrived! Yes, I finally bit the bullet and bought one. I had hoped that someone would send me a review sample of a sexy HTC or something, but alas... cheap bastards... Anyway! This means you'll now be treated to reviews of Android apps. Most of them will be free and available from the Android Marketplace, but I will also occasionally turn my attention to the slightly...
