Yo gets reinvented into a true notifications app for 150 sources


If you downloaded Yo last year, chances are it’s now collecting dust in one of your app folders — after all, how many times can you send the word “yo” to a friend before it becomes annoying? Now, its developers are attempting to entice people to use it again by turning it into an app that notifies you of the newest and most relevant content from a number of websites. The idea behind this redesigned Yo is to give people a way to get notified of new articles, videos or images from its partner websites without having to download standalone apps. All you have to do is subscribe to the channels you like via the brand new “Yo Store.”

We’re talking about notifications or “Yos” from Buzzfeed, TechCrunch, NBA, Cosmopolitan, Beyonce’s Instagram and even internet feline celeb Lil Bub, among many others. What’s great is that the app wasn’t designed to flood you with Yos for every new post. For instance, you’ll only get a Yo from TechCrunch for every article that gets 250 retweets, from Lonely Planet Local for places near your location, and from Huffington Post for its daily good news. Some services, like Coinbase, even send you notifications (the current bitcoin price, in its case) only if you ping it first. It could also be used as an Internet of Things button, sort of like IFTTT. You can access the Yo Store from within the now-more-useful app, or you can visit its website if you want to give Yo a second chance.

Launcher Lab review



People often ask me about what my favorite thing about Android is as a user. For me, that is the customization. I can completely change the entire look and feel of my device quickly and easily. This is even possible without rooting the device.

I do however have an arsenal of apps to help me accomplish this task. Among the apps that I use are Zooper for custom widgets, a variety of icon packs and a third party launcher. This last app changes from time to time.

Recently, I found a new home replacement app called Launcher Lab. Always open to try something new, I jumped straight into it.

Initially, Launcher Lab was only available for devices on 5.0 and above, but that has changed. Here is how Launcher Lab fairs on my Moto X (2013) and HTC One M8.

Launcher Lab feels like Themer with Lollipops. The launcher includes a theme store where beginners can turn to pick up already created themes and apply them to their own phone much like Themer does.

There is a wide variety of themes to chose from, but there currently is no way to filter through them. You just have to keep on scrolling until you find one that you really like.

There are some cool features available in Launcher Lab that I enjoy. The feature I enjoy the most is the ability to set a different wallpaper for each new screen. As a heavy themer, this allows me to go have numerous different setups that are completely different from each other all at the same time.

More than just wallpapers, Launcher Lab lets you use gesture controls. Swipe up and you are rewarded with an iOS styled quick settings widget. This allows you to do things like toggle airplane mode, Wi-Fi, data connection, Bluetooth, ringer modes and your torch. You can also adjust your screen brightness, ringer volume and a few other options.

Double taping on empty spaces will give you your app drawer which is ordered alphabetically by default. A downwards swipe will give you an app search. Then you have your usual left and right swipe to cycle home screens.

Tapping and holding on an empty space gives you your tools. Here you can add elements to the screen, upload an “X-Screen” (I will touch more on this in a bit), enter a screen overview mode, open your app drawer, or open the theme store.

The theme store is like Themer. You have a bunch of premade screens that you can download and use. The difference is that you get to pick which walls out of a theme you use. If you download a theme with an app home screen and a music widget screen, you can chose to only use the music widget screen, so you are not stuck with the entire theme.

 

 

In a similar fashion, you have the ability to mix and match various walls from various themes. The coolest feature on Launcher Lab, in my opinion, is the X-Screens. There are two different types of walls in Launcher Lab.

With regular walls, you can use the launcher how you would use any other launcher. You have your grid for various apps and widgets along with your app dashboard on the bottom housing five different apps.

The fun really begins when you start messing with the X-Screens. These X-Screens act like one whole widget. With the X-Screens, you get access to widgets similar to Zooper widgets. You have the static texts, shapes and dynamic texts.

The advantage you have with X-Screens over Zooper widgets is that you can see the background while you are working. Every edit you make is done on the homescreen, so you know exactly where each element is positioned in relation to your wallpaper and other elements.

In addition to a powerful widget, X-Screens also offers independent walls. What I mean by this is that each X-Screen could have a completely different wallpaper than the previous walls. You are not limited to a single static or scrolling wallpaper.

Launcher Lab also boasts unique icons and animations that are suprisingly smooth and don’t lag up my device. Warning, your results may vary. If these icons aren’t to your liking, you can apply custom icons through Launcher Lab, but you have to apply them one by one and find the image from within the icon pack manually.

Over all, I found Launcher Lab to be a pleasure to use and simple to set up. Applying my preferred icons was a pain, but well worth it in the end. The end result was a unique homescreen that left me happy and content.

Only issue here is that it might be too resource intensive for older devices to handle, but you can always try it. It is a free app, so you have nothing to lose, but there is everything to gain.

SpeakerPhone Ex – Never worry about putting your phone on loudspeaker again



Putting someone on loudspeaker doesn’t have to be a frustrating experience anymore, thanks to a little app called SpeakerPhone Ex. No doubt you’ve been in a situation where you’ve had to put someone on speakerphone and have missed a section of the conversation in the time it took you to pull the phone down from your ear, the screen to wake up, and to find that speaker button?

That’s where SpeakerPhone Ex comes in; the app sits in the background and will activate itself during a call to give a ton of options. The main feature is that it will activate and remove the loudspeaker using the proximity sensor on your device. So to activate loudspeaker during a call, just remove the device from your ear.

In addition, SpeakerPhone Ex can auto-answer a call by placing it to your ear, as well as auto-hangup. The basic features, such as auto-answer and auto-speakerphone are free, but the PRO version is required for additional options like the auto-hangup and additional customisation options.

You can grab the free version in the Google Play Store by using the link below.

Score Snapchat videos with songs from your phone


Have the perfect song in mind for a Snapchat video? Well, now you can play music from your phone while filming it. Thanks to an update, the ephemeral sharing app no longer pauses whatever track is playing while it captures a few seconds of video footage. Of course, the music is recorded with your handset’s built-in mic, so don’t expect high-quality audio. However, you can play tunes stored on the device or streamed from services like. The update is available now for iOS devices, and we expect it’ll arrive for Android soon enough.

Tweetdeck lets you share accounts without sharing passwords


Until now, if you wanted to share Twitter log-in credentials with members of your team, it meant sharing a password. Thanks to TweetDeck, you no longer have to use the same info. The 140-character social network now offers TweetDeck Teams for its popular app: a tool that allows groups to employ the same account with admin and contributor roles. When you need to add a colleague to the social workload, all you have to do is authorize that user, and once they accept the invite, they’ll be good to go. As you might expect, access can be revoked at any time by the admin, and those folks have control over the password. Contributors can tweet, follow/unfollow, schedule tweets and make lists, but they won’t have any access outside of the app. The new feature starts rolling out today for TweetDeck on the web, Chrome and Windows.

paperwear_app_icon

Watch any television show from days gone by and chances are good you will see someone break out a newspaper to get caught up on current events. The advent of online news sources delivered via computers and then mobile devices like tablets, smartphones and e-readers have changed the way “news” is created and how it is delivered. The explosion of interest in smartwatches is leading some to look to these new devices as yet another vector to deliver news as seen with the new PaperWear app released to Google Play.

PaperWear pulls top articles from sites like Medium.com, Vox.com, qz.com and others and delivers them to a users smartwatch running Android Wear. The app will automatically refresh the article list every 12 hours although users can pull a refresh manually. If reading an article on a smartwatch is a bit too much trouble, users can save articles to a service like Pocket or read the article on their smartphone.

To get PaperWear, hit the Google Play link below.
