Android application for your mobile security

Posted by Bloglovers on December 31, 2011

Now that Google’s Android mobile OS has been released to the public for some time and now thoughts of security are floating around in our minds. I am sure that many people just want a simple app to take care of security for them. Well, the good news is that since Android is based off of Linux inherently it is less susceptible to malware. The the flip side, Android users should think about their own private security since even Android developers say that their product is not completely secure due to the fact that apps must intercommunicate. Ultimately you will need to decide how much security you want on your phone. offers several free security apps to help you browse the internet, text your friends, and talk as securely as possible.

Secure SMS

This app will allow you to encrypt and decrypt your texts. This can be great for users who communicate potentially sensitive information via texting.

WaveSecure Mobile Security

WaveSecure is an app that takes action when your phone is lost or stolen. Via a secure website you can destroy or recover data, track changes to your SIM card, lock the phone, or back-up your personal data remotely.

Anti-virus Free

This little AV is all about protecting your phone from malware and exploits with real-time scanning. Additionally you can have it filter SMS so that you never have to read or pay for an annoying SPAM message again.


This little piece of software allows the smartphone to connect to a secure shell server which typically run on UNIX-based servers. Several shells can be open at once and controlled by the user. This Android app is typically used by power users and not general users as you do need to know shell commands in order to truly use the app.

Although ConnectBot 1.6.1 is out I thought you might be interested to watch the basic features.

Keeper(TM) Password & Data Vault
Keeper is certified by the U.S. government to keep your passwords, notes, logins, and other sensitive information safe from prying eyes. This little Droid app has AES encryption that will make breaking into it tougher than sneaking back into your parents house after a night of partying.

Do you ever take sensitive pictures that you do not want just anybody to see? If you do then LokPixLite is perfect for you. Encrypt as many as 25 pictures, import, export, capture, and view pictures without a worry that someone else will see your work. Get this above application for your mobile and make sure you keep away from hackers and malicious attacks.

Why Most People Switch to Android

Posted by Bloglovers on December 25, 2011

Now days Android is a very popular platform. In fact, over 700,000 new Android devices are activated daily! Many of these are from people who are switching to Android from Nokia, Blackberry, iOS, or webOS. If you’re one of them, then this “Quick Start Guide” is for you. It is designed to give you a quick overview of the Android platform, and then point you in the right direction for learning more!

Introduction to Android
Android is unique in that it can look surprisingly different depending on the brand of phone or tablet you have. This is because Google builds the basic operating system, and the various manufacturers are free to customize it as they see fit. They all run Android at their core, but HTC has Sense, Motorola has Blur (though they seem to be phasing that name out), and Samsung has Touchwiz, to name the main ones.

Despite various customizations, however, there are certain Android features that are consistent across brands. Nearly every Android phone has four main navigation buttons: Back, Menu, Home, and Search. Back brings you back one step in an app, or back a page in a browser. Menu brings up additional options for an app or your Android home screens. Home takes you to the main home screen and Search brings up the search bar, either within an app or globally.

Another basic Android feature is Widgets. Widgets are essentially “mini-apps” that provide at-a-glance details. Popular widgets include clocks, weather forecasts, speed dial contacts, calendars, and more. You can arrange widgets across multiple home screens on your Android device, designing a layout that fits your style.

Finally, every Android device has a notification bar at the top of the screen. Swipe down from the top and you’ll be presented with a list of all current notifications. A single tap will take you to an email, text message, calendar event, etc. This menu is accessible from any app and is the fastest way to see what you missed while you were away.

Some Must Have Applications for Android
In today’s digital world, most smart phones are only as good as the apps you put on them. On Android, Google has built in the Android Market to facilitate this. Where we used to suffer from scarcity, now we are burdened by the tyranny of choice. But if you just got a Android phone what are the first 10 apps you should download? This story is for you.
To get you started, however, we’ve included a list of our “must-have” apps below. Click the links to check them out in the Android Market.

The Android Market has more Twitter apps than you could count, but Twidroyd appears as one of the best, especially since it is a free application. As with most Twitter clients, you can easily meet with @ reply to people and send direct messages. A complete set of options is available if you hold down a specific message. You can also easily send links from the stream to the browser of the phone and the software has no difficulty in managing more than one link at a time. If you are a fan of Twitter, you may become addicted to this application.

Angry Birds
Every mobile device, in my opinion, is naked without Angry Birds! It is the most well known mobile game in the world right now, and as frustrating as it can be at times, it is also awesome. When you want to pass some time doing something mindless, this is definitely the app for that moment. Angry Birds is FREE, so there is no excuse to not have it on your Android.

Evernote – Evernote is a universal note taking app. Keep notes from your Android, your computer, and even your browser all synced up. It’s fast, free, and easy to use.

Android Users can set MP3 as ringtones rather easily, but what if you do not want the first 30 seconds of a song? This is where Ringdroid comes in – it lets you select an MP3 file from your phone or memory card and modify it so that your ring starts and ends exactly where you want. Speaking of MP3s, if you have all your music in iTunes and want to sync it with your Android phone.

Kik Messenger – One of the best ways to chat with friends, family, and peers without using text messages. Kik Messenger is similar to BlackBerry Messenger, and it’s available on Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and even BlackBerry. So skip the text message plan – use Kik!

We’ve only touched the beginning of what Android has to offer. There’s a wealth of information out there and much more to discover. The above information should be enough to get you up to speed on what Android is all about.
