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.

    A big omission to your description of Timeshift Burst is that it only works with Sony phones!

      Good to see new apps getting some print time but unfortunately the only app I was interested in was incompatible with my device…Timeshift Burst…Sony only?!?

  • penguins

    Indeed, these are very interesting apps that you have to watch out for. I bet they are useful to our daily living.

  • donger

    Movie Tube is pretty awesome.

    Unrelated Question: How do you tell, the difference between a newly, posted app and one, that has been redressed and renamed; repeatedly.

    I got really excited reading about time shift burst; it sounds like a really fun app to use, but the author Steve left out the most important fact about this app, which I’m sure by now has already disappointed millions… Its only for Sony Xperia Z.
