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.

    Most Tweeted This Week

    I’ve seen some of these apps pop up over the last week, and while I haven’t used most of them, I have been able to check out Twheel.

    Twheel is currently a direct port of the companies iOS app, and it shows in the design. While there are an abundance of Twitter clients out there, this one is definitely different. The wheel in the center is more like a spiral of tweets. Circling clockwise moves forward in time, while counter-clockwise moves you back in time. The tweet you have selected displays at the top, images show as a thumbnail in the lower right corner of the tweet. Besides navigation, the other stand out features of the app are VIP settings and statistics. You can mark anyone you follow as a VIP, and what this does is change the color of their tweet spoke from orange to yellow, making them easier to recognize. And while you are looking at the wheel, each tweet shows a visual represntation of the activity of the tweet as if each was a bar on a bar graph. The more activity on a tweet, the higher up the spoke the bar goes.

    While it is an interesting concept. And I use it intermixed with my other twitter client, the price is a little high for what is really just a new interface and statistic tracking of twitter. If the price came down to $0.99 I could see spending the money on it.

    This is my go-to place for app discovery. Love the fresh meat articles. Now it’s time to watch duck dynasty with the History app. Thanks Android and Me!

    Can someone please share the APK of boomerang? :)

    A column like this would be helpful to me only if it identified the recurring costs of subscriptions for the recommended applications. For example, I looked at Neat and Boomerang Email Client. Both are listed as free in the store, and neither mentions fees where they should–in the Google Play Store description. Only by reading reviews was I able to learn that a typical subscription costs more per month than I like to pay one-time for an app. As an example, reviews report that Neat costs $14.99 per month.
