HTC First launched with AT&T back on April 12 and while the handset hasn't even been available for a full month, it has already been given a price cut. Or maybe a bit more accurate here, a price slashing. The handset had been selling for $99 on a two-year agreement and as of today, those interested can pick it up for under a buck.
Facebook Chat Head type feature. Paranoid Android decided to take Chat Heads and turn it into a unified notification system for Android, and put it on steroids. You might love it, or hate it, but this is what makes Android great. Read on for more details about Paranoid Android's HALO feature.
Angry Birds Friends, which has a social connection to Facebook and as of today it looks like we have the release of another social-minded game. This latest is Bejeweled Blitz, which comes by way of Electronic Arts. The release of Bejeweled Blitz has the game joining the previously available Bejeweled 2.
Facebook's latest features. Most notably, the Chat Heads messenger system. Many love the feature, but don't want to use Facebook. That's where Paranoid Android comes into play. We detailed this earlier today, and now have a video of their awesome new feature in action.
Facebook had a pretty busy few weeks releasing Facebook Home, the HTC First phone, and of course their new Messenger application with tons of new features. The only thing we really liked from Facebook's new arsenal was their unified messenger system called Chat Heads. Little bobble heads on the edges of the display for seamless communication. Soon we'll be getting that, without Facebook.
Instagram app update has been announced. This update brings a new feature called Photos of You, which is said to be the answer to the question of who. To give a bit of a background on that, the folks at Instagram have said he Photo Map answers the where and the captions and hashtags answer the what. With that in mind, Instagram users now have the Photos of You feature for the who.
Facebook has launched their latest password security option. This one is called Trusted Contacts and it has the user picking a few trusted friends who will be used if or when you ever find yourself unable to access your Facebook account. Basically you pick a few friends you can trust and if you are ever locked out of your account they will provide the security codes that will allow you back in.
Facebook Home launched in the US on April 12 and then internationally on April 16 and quickly reached the 500,000 download milestone. While the argument can be made that 500,000 still only accounts for a small number of Android users, it is hard to ignore the reviews and average rating. At present that rating is sitting at 2.2.
Facebook had said they would have Chat Heads and stickers available for everyone over the next few weeks. Those stickers were later found to be hidden and available for those willing (or able) to tap a tiny little spot next to the plus button. As of today though, Facebook has once again updated the Android Messenger app and this time they have added the sticker support.
