HERE beta version now available for other Android devices

A few months after making the beta version available for Samsung Galaxy devices, offline mapping app HERE is now, well, here for other Android devices. The app can now be manually downloaded by all compatible devices and its developer Nokia (yes, that Nokia!) says that it is much improved as they based changes on feedback from those who have previously accessed the beta version through their Galaxy smartphones.

Checky app tracks how often you check your phone

Have you ever wondered how many times per day you check your smartphone? Many of us probably check our phones lots more than we realize. A new app is available for Android devices called Checky that will track exactly how much of a phone checking habit you have.

Flock messaging: communicate and colllaborate for work purposes

We know what you'll say after reading the headline: do we really need another messaging app, with all the FB Messengers, Vibers, LINES, WeChats, Hangouts out there? But Flock claims to be different from all these as it has one purpose only, and that's not to talk about the boss behind his back while at work. It's a messaging app created for you and your team to be able to collaborate and communicate while working on projects, both at the office and if needed, when you're outside.

Notif Widget lets you access notifications from any screen or app

Notifications should be plain and simple but there’s no stopping developers from improving on them. Why should notifications be boring when you can have fun with them? This NotifWidget is a new app that let’s you interact with notifications right on the lock screen, DayDream screen saver, or home screen. This is pretty much like the Notify! app we featured a few months ago.

Blunt + Tile tag = no more lost umbrellas

When you've misplaced the remote control or your handkerchief or your wallet for the nth time, haven't you ever wished you could ring it up or you have an app that could detect where it was? Well the advent of GPS and NFC and Bluetooth tags can actually make that possible (although putting a GPS on your handkerchiefs seem a little too extreme right?}. Blunt umbrellas have teamed up with tag marker company Tile to come up with an umbrella that you will not be able to lose (unless you misplace the tags as well).

Talon (Plus) for Android 5.0 released, Classic unpublished

It is a bittersweet week for fans of Talon for Twitter from Klinker Apps, who also develops EvolveSMS and Blur Launcher. The developer has just released Talon for Twitter (Plus), a new and improved version of the popular Twitter client, but one that has been designed for Android 5.0 and with Material Design in mind. But sadly, that also marked the death of the Classic version of Talon that works on other Android versions, due to Twitter's rather restrictive authorization token limit.

Spotify Family gives discount for multiple accounts

Listening to Spotify in all its unlimited access and ad-free glory is pretty much a requirement for most people these days (especially if you're sick and tired of that Spotify guy's voice) and it will not cost you an arm and a leg. But what if you have an entire household clamoring for their very own account? The expenses of paying for multiple subscriptions would then get to you. Your favorite music streaming service is trying to help you out with that by giving you big discounts with its Spotify Family package.

Bing Rewards program comes to Android

I thought rewards points are only for groceries, shops, credit cards, and plane tickets. I had no idea Microsoft has gone geeky about it too. The software giant has released the Bing Rewards app for Windows Phone devices earlier and now it has come to Android. This means more ways to get points for using Bing’s many services to exchange for prizes in the future. Actually, we've heard about this rewards program earlier this 2014 but no mention when it will be launched.
