Music Boss for Pebble hands-on

Action Launcher 2.0 hands-on

Action Launcher 2.0 exited the beta phase yesterday evening. Version 2.0 had been in beta for sometime, but despite regularly using Action Launcher, we held off on installing the beta release. Well, after spending some time with v2.0 last evening and this morning -- we are now wishing we would have updated sooner. First and foremost though, along with some new features, Action Launcher 2.0 also brought a free and paid version.

Moto G Flip Shell hands-on

Following a lengthy series of rumors, Motorola officially announced the Moto G at an event back in mid-November. Since that point we have been watching the handset begin arriving. The North American launch began in Canada and that was followed up with an earlier than expected release in the US market. But along with the announcement for the Moto G itself, Motorola also detailed some accessories. With that in mind, we have recently been spending some time with the Moto G and for today, we have a hands-on with the Flip Shell.

Camera Awesome for Android hands-on

SmugMug recently released Camera Awesome for Android. This release came after a rather long period of being available for iOS only. But putting that to the side, the app is $2.99 and brings the obvious ability of being able to capture images or video along with quite a few features. To begin with though, the Camera Awesome app is able to capture images quickly, really quickly.
