[New App] FIFA

There’s a new way to keep up on the goings on in the world of soccer (or football, to most people in the world). The official FIFA app has hit Google Play with all the news and stats you could ever want.

The app includes coverage of 197 leagues from all over the world with match results, player info, and schedules. You can also personalize the app with your favorite teams to make the relevant data easier to access. The app itself seems to have a good handle on the Android design guidelines – there’s an action bar, some cards, and a hamburger menu. It also scales to tablets and phones correctly.

Perhaps the app will give you better insight into the mysteries of the game. I mean, you see that ludicrous display last night? Thing about Arsenal is, they always try and walk it in. The app is free, so check it out.

Dozens of themes to choose from and more added daily. Based on the Android theming website, MyColorScreen.com, Themer does all the hard work for you, setting up wallpaper, widgets, and icons in one click.

Features:
– The app is free and themes are free.
– Easily go back to your old homescreen setup (though we doubt you’ll want to!).
– All themes are customizable, or you can use them as-is.
– New “Favorites” tab in the app drawer lets you quickly access your most-used apps.

Basic Instructions:
– After install, Themer will apply a “welcome” theme to your device that explains how to find themes.
– Once you’ve applied your first theme, long press the homescreen and choose “Browse Themes” (or click the Themer icon in the app drawer) to return to the Themer menu.
– To make Themer your default homescreen, go to the Themer menu and choose “Set Home.” Click “Themer” and “Always.”
– To get back to your old homescreen, go to the Themer menu, choose “Settings,” “Themer,” and “Restore Old Homescreen.”
– After applying a theme, swipe down anywhere on your screen to see your notification bar. Swipe up to hide it.

Please check out our video tutorial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqfkumDYD2E) and blog (http://www.themerapp.com/blog) for more info.

Please note that Themer supports most but not all devices running Android 4.1+. We are working hard to bring it to more devices and older versions of Android. If you are using a custom ROM that affects DPI or alters screen dimensions (such as the removal of soft keys), you will not be able to see any themes. Please restore to original configuration for Themer to function properly.

Below is a list of screen resolutions that we support:

1920×1080
1776×1080
1280×720
1184×768
1184×720

[New App] Virgin TV Anywhere

 

Virgin Media TV customers in the UK, you can now watch your TiVo live television service or recorded programs on your Android device, anywhere! Anywhere with a WiFi connection, that is. Assuming that you’ve got a phone or tablet running Android 2.3 through 4.3, but not KitKat 4.4. Oh, and you can’t be rooted. Have fun!

All kidding aside, there seem to be some serious issues with Virgin’s new TV Anywhere app for Android, starting with the aforesaid KitKat support. Other early reviews are decrying the lack of support for older, non-TiVo Virgin DVRs and the rooted device restriction, which American football fans can probably sympathize with. Others want to watch TV over the mobile network, and again, this is a common restriction when it comes to live TV streaming. Device support is spotty as well: the Nexus 5, Galaxy Nexus, and Galaxy S4 are showing as incompatible for me, though your results may vary.
If you can get over all that, Virgin TV Anywhere offers a full program guide and remote recording, even when you’re on 3G. The app also works as a basic remote for the TiVo box to make searching for shows easier. The interface isn’t great, but it does at least follow the general look of the TiVo menus. Naturally you’ll need to be a Virgin Media TV customer to log in to the app.

Gravity Screen Pro – On / Off v1.73.1

 

Current Version: 1.73.1

Requires Android: 2.2 and up

Category:   Tools

v1.73.1 update: – – –  v1.73.3 – – –

Fixed: – crashed if the app was started in landscape mode. Let me know if still experiencing any crash. – infinite timeout If the app does not work properly after the update, try to re-install it to solve the problem.

Overview: – Install it only if you have difficulty to Unlock the Free version by In-app Billing or the Free version does not work for you for some reason. –

Using your phone often? Tired of the On-Off switching? This app turns automatically your screen off when you put your phone into your pocket or onto a table and turn the screen on when you take it out or up. No need to touch any button and you are ready to go.

HOW IT WORKS:

It monitors the orientation of the device through the gravity sensor. When your phone is pointing downward by its top, below a certain angle, it’s likely to be out of use. In this situation the proximity sensor is activated to determine if it is covered. If yes, the screen turns off because probably you placed the phone into your pocket or onto a table. To keep the battery usage low the program turns on the proximity sensor only when it’s really necessary. Moreover, when it turns your screen off and the proximity sensor is covered it puts your phone into deep sleep state to save as much energy as possible.

MAIN FEATURES:

– Pocket Sensor: Recognizes if your phone is in your pocket. – Table Sensor: Detects your phone is lying on a table and turns the screen off. – Turn Screen On by Motion: If the screen is off and it’s facing up the device can be woken up by any movements, for example lift up by hand. – Keep Screen On by Motion: It’s a Screebl like feature but it’s relying on the small movements you are doing by your hand while holding the phone. If small motions are detected while the screen is facing up the feature keeps the screen on because it can be suspected that the phone is held and probably you are reading something. If the phone is steady the normal screen timeout will apply in any position you leave your device. – Exclude Apps option: The app pauses itself anytime if selected app is running, it’ll resume when you close the app. Useful when playing games etc. – Tasker, Llama, Locale supported by plug-in.

BATTERY USAGE:

It should be not significant. I experienced about 6 per cent extra consumption on the test device. However it can be much higher by often using the Turn Screen On by Motion feature. Thus, keep your phone face down if you want to save energy.

IMPORTANT:

On some devices (e.g. HTC One) the alarm clock is switched off by the app after it had gone off! Please check if it’s the case for you. If, yes, use a third party app, for example: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vp.alarmClockPlusDock

SIDE NOTE:

– The app was not widely tested. Hopefully it will work fine for you. But, if you experience any issue or just have a question, please email me.

FREE vs. PRO VERSION

In the Pro version the screen can be turned on by motion up to 16 hours instead of 15 minutes. Also, in the Pro version the Table sensor is more accurate.

FAQ

Q: The screen not always turns off when I put my phone into my pocket, why? A:The proximity sensor not always accurate. It can fail recognizing some materials specially if they are very close to it. If it happens to you often, you can activate the False Turn-On Protection feature which effectively reduces the number of accidental wake-ups.

Q: I’m experiencing high battery usage, why? A: The app should use about 6 percent extra energy per day if you are not using too much the Turn Screen On by Motion feature, for example keeping your phone face down when it’s on a table. Moreover, please, keep in mind that the android en-built battery consumption measurement can show much higher results if it’s based on a short period of time.

Q: The Turn Screen On by Motion feature does not work for me, why? A: It’s likely that your device is stopping the acceleration sensor when the screen goes off and we can do nothing about it unfortunately. More info: http://www.saltwebsites.com/2012/android-accelerometers-screen-off

[New App] SidePlayer | SidePlayer Pro

 

If you’re listening to music while using your phone or tablet for something else, you don’t always want to stop what you’re doing to fiddle with the song. If you’re in a game, for example, you may have to exit to the home screen just to get to your music controls, but SidePlayer offers an alternative. It pops a small control panel out from the edge of the screen when you need it, and hides it when you don’t.

SidePlayer ties into various music players like Google Play Music, PowerAmp, n7 player, and several OEM music apps. Just drag in from the right edge of the screen and the controls appear. Drag back, and they recede. This works in any app, even a full-screen game. The free version of the app is limited to this basic functionality, but the $1.75 pro edition includes themes, metadata display, more layouts, active area positioning, and more.

This app doesn’t make a lot of sense for devices that can show the notification shade in full-screen apps (like Samsung devices and stock KitKat), but it could be great for others. You can give it a shot for free, so why not?
