I was first introduced to Android with the Samsung Fascinate and I've been hooked ever since. I love the customization that Android offers the user to personalize their phone. I enjoy writing and have been blessed with the opportunity to share this passion for Android with others.

    Downloaded ActiveNotifications.

    Since I have a Samsung phone, it ended up being redundant since TouchWiz has a Text bubble notification that showed up before ActiveNotification’s notification. It did work well with email though.

    You guys need to remove “HighCrypt” from your list ASAP. It is a 100% rip-off of Safe In Cloud – all they changed was the color of the cloud in the icon.

      ^ This. HighCrypt is a cheap and nasty rip-off of Safe In Cloud – which I’m already running and love.

  • SGB101

    Active notifications is great on cm.

  • Roxing

    Triggr is somehow nice. I like when things are connected. :)

  • SGB101

    What is with the trolling mark downs lately. I really think hope the voting and posting becomes members only. It’s starting to piss me off a touch!

      Sorry about being a guest. I’d really like Android and Me to use Disqus so I don’t have to create another account.

      I can’t see any down votes on this articles comments. In general I do notice trolling down votes here as well as everywhere else too. The hidden comment feature frustrates me because sometimes those hidden down voted comments are more insightful than the rest of the comments.

      • SGB101

        It’s funny, every post was negative last night, looks like a few peeps have countered them.

  • donger

    Cheapcast lol.

  • MOSW

  • Yanhr

  • Lisa Marie
