Backup and manage your Android phone or tablet with a desktop PC using SnapPea


Tuesday 04th of December 2012 / talkandroid.com
We recently reviewed Moborobo, which allows you to manage and sync your Android phone with your desktop, but I wanted to tell you about another one that I found called SnapPea. SnapPea has a clean and easy to use interface that is perfect for the Android beginner, but advanced users might want to check it out as well. It has some pretty cool features and you will most likely want to recommend it to your newbie friends and family since it’s a great application to backup and manage any Android phone or tablet. //SnapPea is easy to get up and running. For starters, you have to download the software for your Windows PC and install it. After that, grab the app from the Play Store (you can actually skip this step) and install it on your phone or tablet. Then it’s a matter of connecting your device to your PC and opening the software on your PC and starting the app on your device if you installed it. If the device was never connected to the PC before, SnapPea will download the appropriate drivers and connect to it. Not only that, it will also install the app on your device if y

Enhance video experience with Android and VLC Media Player


Thursday 13th of August 2009 / androinica.com
VLC Media is the ultimate desktop application for multimedia. It plays almost any format or codec out there, and it even has the ability to convert and edit video. Whether you’re on Mac, Windows PC, or Linux, VLC is a program you probably should have installed on your computer.You can also use Android to get more out of VLC and vice versa. For starters, VLC includes a feature that allows users to record portions of DVD’s , downloaded videos, or music files, and convert them into mobile friendly formats to put on your Android phone. This Sync Blog article explains how to edit or convert video using VLC Media Player.There are even options to control VLC from your Android phone. Several apps are designed specifically to control VLC using the HTTP protocol, and we already know that Android streaming/remote app Gmote has the power to control a computer’s media. Personally, I feel Gmote is the best and easiest option, but the VLC Remote and VLCMote apps aren’t anything to sneeze at.If you haven’t already, download and install VLC 1.0 or higher on your compute

How to Update the HTC Rezound to the Official Android ICS 4.0.3 Firmware


Monday 14th of May 2012 / android.gs
We’ve seen many phones receive the Official Android ICS 4.0 update, either leaked of fully functional, and today we’re going to show you how to install the ICS 4.0.3 firmware on the HTC Rezound. As I’ve mentioned before, many official leaks have been flowing and this Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 is a leak for the HTC Rezound. We don’t know when the OTA update or HTC Sync will come, but until then, this will suffice.No one but yourself can be held responsible for any damage that your device could suffer, which is very unlikely if you follow the steps correctly.The HTC Rezound doesn’t have to be rooted in order to install this firmware. If the device is rooted, after the update is completed, your phone will lose its root access. Take the necessary precautions and backup the phone’s data, charge the battery to a minimum of 80%, Enable USB Debugging (Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging – make sure it’s checked) and last but not least, make sure to uninstall or disable any anti-virus program on your PC and phone.Now that you’re ready for the storm,

Saturday 14th of July 2012 / androidauthority.com
It started its life on the first-gen Xbox, but the cross-platform multimedia hub developed by XBMC can now be found running on PC, Linux, Mac OS X, and various iOS devices.We’ll have to add Android to the list soon, as the developer has announced the coming of XBMC for Android. As the developing team pointed out, this is a real app that you can easily install on any device powered by Android – set-top box included – with no rooting required, and one that provides a hassle-free media streaming and content management solution for all of your multimedia files.The Android version will have the same features found on its cousins. While the demoed video below shows XBMC for Android running on a set-top box, they said  it’ll play nicely with Android phones and tablets.

To make sure that it’ll be ready for prime time faster, however, XBMC will be offering the APKs for interested bet

Acer D255 Netbook Seen Running Android OS!


Sunday 07th of November 2010 / talkandroid.com
The PC market is in trouble with the onslaught on tablets gaining popularity. How do you battle smartphones and tablets in sales? You install a mobile OS on a PC, in particular, if you’ want to make a good run at increasing your PC sales, you install the most popular mobile OS available…Android.//Here you see an Acer D255 netbook running Android. It looks like it’s Android 1.6, but we can’t be sure as they may have had to alter many areas of code to get it running on something that doesn’t have a touchscreen to begin with.I don’t mind netbooks, they’re a lot more powerful than any tablet or smartphone currently, and I like having a physical qwerty keyboard too. It would be interesting to see if PC manufacturers decide to release Android on netbooks for sale. The benefits are the same that Google discussed when Chrome OS was first announced to the public.Would you grab a netbook running Android instead of a tablet?[via Android Central]» See more articles by Jesse Bauer//
