Carbon For Android

Twitter users are applauding the arrival Carbon for Android Twitter Client app which was just recently released. Carbon joins a growing arena Twitter Client apps that are vying for attention. A comparison between Carbon and the most popular Twitter app, Falcon Pro, reveals two great apps, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. This post seeks to explore each app's pluses and minuses.

A review of the new kid on the block, Carbon for Android, reveals sleek graphics and a seamless performance. It offers a great library of animations and, perhaps most important of all, its free and it not paid for by advertising. A visual inspection of the app finds an extremely attractive screen with displaying a contrasting light-on-dark interface that's smooth as silk. The screen is easy on the eyes and is absent the lines and boarders found in Falcon Pro's screen. The Avatar icons marking that mark the tweets do not detract from the clean visuals. The inline media thumbnails are hefty, but in keeping with the over-all graphic scale.

Smartphones With "Smart Plans"

Are voice plans going the way of the dinosaur? Increasingly, free services are offering consumers an alternative to the traditional voice and text carriers. That’s great news for smart phone owners who are getting weary of paying high prices and being locked into multi-year contracts for a service that may prove to be redundant. As the quality of voice-over-IP (v-o-IP) continues to improve, many are toying with the idea of getting rid of their mobile phone carriers altogether. This is occurring as the traditional carriers find themselves in an increasingly competitive environment and new technology is making it easier to circumvent their services all together.

Interestingly, the very existence of the carriers was predicated on our need for the ability to communicate voice and text messaging on our cell phones. Now, new technology is killing the goose that initially laid the golden egg of mobile voice communications. Tech companies like Facebook and Skype are offering alternative delivery services that may eventually make companies like Verizon and T Mobile an extinct species. V-o-IP offers a significantly lower cost and reduced maintenance platform and accomplishes the same task.

It's A New Year

The future of Android app development is looking pretty rosy right now. Demand for Android apps development is on the rise as consumers seek ‘best of breed” operating software and few platforms can beat the reliability and functionality of Android OS. As a result, Android app development for Android is on the upswing. In spite of a slow start, Android app development is about to take off as Google and Apple app store are displaying an equal number of available app selections.

Android is a Linux-based operating system designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices. Since its inception in 2007 by the Open Handset Alliance, an open source group represented by hardware, software and telecommunications companies advocating open standards for mobile devices. Currently Android development is comprised of device manufacturers’ wireless carriers and an enthusiastic community of app developers.

The Modern Day Sidekick

For years, it seemed like the only companies that would actually change the world and how we communicate was going to be computer and technology manufacturers. With search engines like Yahoo! and Ask simply offering us news feeds and search resources, they just seemed like another website that provided a service that people actually needed, but it never changed how we interacted with each other with all that much impact. So when Google was found in 1996 as a research project, people didn’t think much of it. However since then, it has not only changed the world and how we communicate, but it has redefined several features of the internet. It’s even come to have its own catchphrase created by the community themselves…if you’re looking for something, just “Google It”.

Google Maps3

One of the earliest evolutions that came about from Google was Google Maps, now complete with variations, including Google Earth. There was once a time in the 1990’s that people would use flat 2-dimentional maps on sites like MapQuest, which often featured complicated directions that would only lead to frustration. Google Maps gives people the opportunity to get a 3-dimensional look at their directions and where they’re going. Additionally, nature enthusiasts can use Google Earth to get a realistic topography map of layouts around the world.

The Battle - Apple Vs. Samsung

Here’s one that should keep you turning your head to the side in confusion for quite some time. Apple has yet again decided to take Samsung to court for what is allegedly the copying of the iPad designs. While patents are there to protect the corporations and their inventions, the case is anything but open and shut, and this one could go on forever. Thankfully, the judge in the case has made it clear that each side will only have 25 hours to present their case. There is no definite ruling on patent cases, as it seems every judge has their own outlook on what should be considered a breach of patent.

Apple is contesting that ever since the invention of the iPhone and the iPad, that Samsung has completely copied the overall design and feel to both their units as well as the operating system that comes along with it. We’re not going to argue that fact too much, as the one bulky Samsung phones have certainly taken a striking similarity to the iPhone. What we can say is that the Samsung isn’t exactly like the iPhone, and the technology has got to be quite different here. Apple is also claiming that copying the iPad has led them to lose potentially billions of dollars in revenue, which has obviously gone to Samsung in the process.
