One of the nice parts about iOS is that file management is relatively easy. Just connect your iDevice to iTunes and manage away. Syncing content and moving material back and forth between a computer and an iDevice is easy. Unfortunately for Android fans, there’s no official equivalent for Google’s flagship mobile OS. Sure, doubleTwist can handle your media files, but it won’t do quite as much as iTunes will do with an iPhone. iTunes can do backups, restore the iPod, etc. That stuff isn’t in doubleTwist. It is, however, in QtADB. Don’t let the awkward and generic name fool you.

I did not understand custom lock screen apps or why anyone would possibly want one. That’s why I embarked upon an epic quest to the Android Market. I resolved to try out some of the most

SwipePad does this job effectively by allowing you to configure a number of slots to your liking and access them from anywhere. SwipePad can be accesses from anywhere – may it

While there are a number of options to customize your Android handsets, there are but a few options to customize a screen that you perhaps see the most – The Lock Screen of your device! Lock screens are important from security point of view (assuming that you use some sort of screen lock, else it’s just a formality). That point noted, the lock screen is still a hindrance in quick access to the apps. Suppose you often need to check your SMS or access the Internet, unlocking the
The number of apps that we install on our Android device is ever-increasing. Accessing these apps by browsing through the app drawer is not the most convenient solution. A convenient options is to add widgets or shortcuts to the homescreen. Adding shortcuts to the phone’s homescreen is an easy way out but you will soon feel a space crunch there too. There is no dearth of customizable widget apps but not all are efficient enough to get most use of the available space. Multicon offers highly customizable widgets that can accommodate a large number of apps and create widgets that
