CaughtU Pro lets you catch the thief, takes an intruder selfie

Intruder Alert. Intruder Alert. Some people want similar security for their Android devices so they become less attractive to thieves. A new app called the CaughtU Pro will probably discourage snatching and theft because it takes photos of anyone who’s been trying to access your phone. It’s another security app that helps the owner to find his lost smartphone. If not, at least, have an idea who has his phone or who was last person who accessed it.

FloatNote allows you to place reminders for people you call

There’s always that time when someone calls and you know you have to tell that person something important, but as we tend to do, we forget. FloatNote is an app that was created with that situation in mind, and admittedly, we need all the help we can get – evidence being the multitude of apps out there designed to remind us of things.

SlideUP Launcher development takes an unusual Kickstarter turn

We've said it before and we'll say it again: Android will never have a dearth of app launchers and homescreen replacements. There are different kinds of different qualities, appealing to different tastes and different needs. SlideUP is yet another one of those vying for your attention, but admittedly, it is a curious one that, at the very least, deserves a second glance. Not only does it offer useful functionality, it seems to be trying out a slightly new way of development, at least as far as Android launchers go.

Firefox for Android Beta tests out browser casting feature

There are still people who use Firefox as their browser on both desktops and mobiles, although that percentage is growing smaller and smaller by the year. Last year (2013), that percentage was 20.09%, if the guys at Statcounter are to be believed.* But that is not stopping Mozilla from continuing to develop the Android version of their browser, now coming up with a “mirroring” feature that enables devices to cast a tab of the browser to a Chromecast or Miracast streaming device.

AutoInput plugin automates almost any app, no root needed

Let us bottom-line this for all of you out there – if you’re wondering what’s so amazing about the Android OS (and ecosystem), it is because of rockstar developers like “joaomgcd” who developed a lot of the AutoApps plugins for Tasker like AutoVoice, AutoRemote, and AutoNotification. He’s back with a new one – AutoInput – which is another Tasker plugin that will allow you to automate clicking on app buttons and typing text on input fields.

Whisper calls The Guardian piece on privacy issues ‘vicious lies’

Whisper, the app that lets you post whatever you want under the guise of anonymity, says that a recent Guardian piece, which accuses them of various privacy violations, is a pack of "vicious lies." The British newspaper recently claimed to have inside information that despite the premise of the app, they were tracking user information and even going as far as giving out details to various government agencies. Officials from the app immediately refuted these accusations and will give out further statements to prove their innocence.
