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.

    Flighttrack is pretty nice. I think it has a live wallpaper too but haven’t had a chance to try it out.

    I guess I just don’t see the need for apps like Spendee when there are apps like Mint that will do the same thing, but that link up to all your accounts and keep track of the transactions for you. Maybe if you don’t use a checking account for your regular purchases and just use cash for everything?

    • Arthur

      Apps like Mint are sometimes too heavy, too many unnecessary features for some. Been a Mint member since it was released before it was bought by Intuit but have been using it less and less the past few years in favor of faster, simpler apps to keep track of spending.

    App Ops 4.3/4.4 KitKat is very useful

      oh yeah?

  • smeghead68

    how is F-secure compared to Lastpass? Any different? I already have Lastpass but wondering if there is anything better out there?

  • Andrew

    Disappointing to see the author recycle the same apps for the last 3 Fresh Meat and Top 10s…
