Must Have Android Apps For Your Smartphone - Part II

Recommended Posts

The popular browser add-on Adblock Plus, used for blocking online advertising, is now available for Android devices. The open-source project released the first version of its Android app on November 27.

The free app is available on Google Play for free as a 1.8MB download. Users without access to Google PLay on their Android devices can download it from the AdBlock Plus for Android website.

AdBlock Plus "works in background and filters out ads in almost all Android browsers and apps. Android 2.1 and higher is supported, the app uses the same filter lists as the Adblock Plus browser extensions," says a post on the AdBlock Plus blog.

I used it and really annoyed by the consistent notification icon.

UnitTab - Unit Converter v1.5.6
Requirements: Android 2.3+
Overview: This is a Universal Unit Converter. UnitTab (old name: Smart Unit Converter) is packed with 1200+ units separated into 90+ categories


This is a Universal Unit Converter. UnitTab (old name: Smart Unit Converter) is packed with 1200+ units separated into 90+ categories:

- No ads (but require Network Access to get Currency Exchange Rates)
- Easy to select a unit by typing anything related to it ("km", "length", "distant"..)
- Currency Converter with Smart (and configurable) live-update rates.
- Precision level is configurable base on your needs.
- History of recently used units.
- Target filtering.
- Clean interface and Smart behavior.

In order to make a conversion, most of Unit converter Apps requires to select a category, then select a base unit, a target unit.. UnitTab is the only one that filter text to quickly select a unit and simplify the procedure. (The traditional procedure is also supported anyway)

Almost conversion data is built base on ConvertPad - the most popular Unit Converter app on the Android platform.

** About the filtering **

For example: you want to convert from °F to °C. You type "f" to search for °F. You'll find many results (because there are many units which contain "f"). You want to narrow the filter, however you might not know the full name of °F (is Fahrenheit). But you know that °F represents a temperature, so you can search for "f temp" ("f" space "temp").. and bingo!

** About currencies exchanges **

- Most currency converter use two-steps conversions, for example: to convert 500 EUR to JPY, it firstly converts 500 EUR to USD then convert from USD to JPY. So these apps have to store (and update) only the exchange rates data of USD. If they support for 160 currencies, they will store and update only 160 rates numbers each time.


- But the 160^2 rates numbers are too much to be available or to be retrieved from the Internet. UnitTab implements a sophisticate calculation policy to make currency conversion as accurate as possible depends on data it needed and data it can retrieve. Basically, It makes direct-conversion whenever possible, otherwise inverse-conversions or two-steps conversions to give you the best approximation.

- You can force UnitTab use two-steps conversions (like others Currency Converter apps) in Settings > "L.U Only Usd Rates" > "Yes". For some currencies, this way might give a more accurate result.

- The exchange rates data of UnitTab comes from TheMoneyConverter.com (for 90 principals currencies) and from Yahoo Finance (for the others). Please let me know if there are more reliable FREE data sources.

- Background Update of Currency Rate is not supported for now. So nothing run behind your back.

** About the interface **
- No fancy icons or images to keep the app package as small as it should be.
- Highlight relevant information.
- UnitTab does not want to change the default Android interface. But a minimal of theming (tweaks) is necessary to keep a professional looking across different Android versions.

What's in this version:
1.5.6
- Speed up the calculation (Give a good rate here if you are impressed).
- New: increase [setting > Input Delay] if you feel a little lag while input values.
- New or Normal users are recommended to select [Explorer > Menu > Enable Commons units]

This app has NO advertisements

Swiftkey Flow Beta is here..

SwiftKey Flow Beta APK (smartphone) >> http://bit.ly/skflowbeta

SwiftKey Flow Beta APK (tablet) >> http://bit.ly/skflowbetatab

Today we’re making SwiftKey Flow beta available and we’re very excited about it. SwiftKey Flow is so much more than another gesture input keyboard. It redefines touchscreen typing with a series of incredible innovations.

Most notably, SwiftKey Flow lets you write an entire sentence without letting go of the screen. All you need to do is pass your finger over the space bar between each word that you trace out. Let SwiftKey Flow do the rest, and you’ll see the words you want magically appear on the screen. We call this ‘Flow Through Space’.

Just saw and bought this great new Launcher...

Details: HERE

Play Link: Action Launcher PRO...

Move over, Apex and Nova, there is a new Action Launcher for Android in town

Move-over-Apex-and-Nova-there-is-a-new-Action-Launcher-for-Android-in-town.jpg

We can never get tired of Android launchers, and days when we have brand new kids on the block are always exciting. Friday was one such day, as a brand spanking new idea appeared in the Play Store ready to be taken for a spin.

The Action Launcher is done by Chris Lacy, the creator of Tweet Lanes, which is a merit alone, and introduces something the developer calls Covers, essentially souped-up folders. You tap the Contacts folder once, for instance, and the app gets launched, tap twice, and your favorite contacts appear, simple idea with a lot of practical applications like this one. The way it works in practice is a bit hit-or-miss, and the dev admits there's still work to be done with Covers.

The other interesting addition is that the app drawer can be called by swiping your finger from the side of the screen, instead of delving into endless pages with app grids. Action Launcher is $3.99, and you can take it for a spin from the source link below. The great thing is that if you are using another launcher, like Apex or Nova, your homescreen layout will be kept intact and transferred to Action Launcher, so you won't have to rearrange things again.

Answer calls simply by putting the phone to your ear!
ProXimity Talk automatically answers calls as soon as you hold your phone to the ear. Additionally it can automatically transfer the call to the speaker when you move the phone away from your ear, or end a call by putting the phone face-down. The main features are:
* Answer call by proximity
* Action after going off-hook (incoming and outgoing calls)
* Turn speaker on after going off-hook (only if phone away from ear)
* Turn speaker on/off by proxmity
* End call by turning the phone face-down or shaking
* Go to home screen or stand-by after ending a call
* Decrease ringer volume when phone gets moved (no false detections when shaked only)
* Silence ringer by turning the phone face-down or shaking

ProXimity Talk simply helps you to save unnecessary key presses:
* Just look on the phone to see who is calling, and hold it to your ear to answer.
* You often have to look up your calendar during a call, but do not want to turn on and off the speaker all the time - then ProXimity Talk is the right tool for you.
