Sky GO for ICS 4.0 Coming Soon (Again)

If you are Sky TV customer in the UK and were enjoying using the Sky GO application on your gingerbread android phone, then upgraded to ICS thinking that Sky had already taken the update into account, only to find that the GO service didn’t work on ICS! Sky did release an ICS compatible version by mistake it seems and some users were again able to use the service until Sky blocked access!  Hold tight the update should be out soon??

A post on the Sky help forums from an advisor states:

‘Hi ————,

Last week a Sky Go update for ICS was prematurely released.

We’ve had to recall this release as we are still experiencing bugs/stability issues within the app, and need to complete all necessary testing to make sure we continue to deliver our customers a high quality experience.

We realise that this will come as a disappointment to customers who’ve been looking forward to this update, and apologise for the error. We are working hard to resolve these issues, and will provide more details on launch dates as soon as possible.’

Galaxy SIII Launch Imminent, Today 19:00BST

Samsung will launch the awaited Galaxy SIII model this evening at an event in London at Earls Court. Kick off is at 19:00 BST and if you are unable to attend the event in person you can watch a live stream online on ‘Samsung’s Facebook‘ page or by downloading the UNPACKED 2012 app from Google’s ‘Play Store’. If you download the app be aware you may be faced with a black screen and that is all, it doesn’t appear to be compatible with ICS 4.0 and Samsung have even updated it today in the hope of resolving the issue for many users.

 

The Galaxy SIII is expected to come with a 1.4GHz Exynos 4 quad-core processor, a 12 Megapixel camera, 4.8in HD display, Bluetooth 4.0 and access to a new cloud service (do we need one!) and of course the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich O/S.

Digitally Imported App Update v1.3

If like me you are a fan of electronic/dance music then you may have heard about the Digitally Imported Radio (DI) website/app before? DI is an audio streaming service both on the web and mobile, it caters for officianados of the dance music genre! The update today allows you to share what you are listening to via Facebook, Twitter and Email and also includes a sleep timer which i think is a very handy addition especially when you are listening to a Trance or Chillout station in bed!

   

3 new channels have also been added to the excellent lineup including Vocal Chillout, Cosmic Downtempo, and Deep Nu-Disco. You will also find stations for a lot of tastes including:

  • Trance
  • House
  • DJ Mixes
  • Drum ‘n’ Bass
  • Techno
  • and more…………….

Moborobo Desktop Management For Android!

I have downloaded ‘Moborobo’ desktop management for Android tool on Win XP, you may have seen a recent review of swiFTP which i use all the time? This app however has much more to offer than just wireless file transfer upon first look! This review comes straight off the back of using the app for a minimal amount of time but has all the features you could want from a desktop sync management tool!

Upon first look it will provide you with a place to control your contacts, apps, pictures, SMS and more!

GO Launcher EX (snApp review)

If you are anything like me you will have tried a few of the alternative launchers available from the Google play store, there are many to choose from such as Launcher Pro, ADW, Apex, Mobo Launcher etc. I have tried a few but have settled on the excellent GO Launcher EX as a replacement to HTC Sense on my Sensation XE! Now there isn’t anything really wrong with the Sense UI but it doesn’t really tick enough boxes for me, I would love to use a mixture of both Sense and GO but I don’t think that’s possible.

GO Launcher EX is a complete makeover including theme support, homescreen effects, dock customisation and much much more to boot! The homescreen is the first noticable thing when you first start the application, icons magically change and a new shortcut bar appears on the bottom of the screen. You can change the transitions between screens with cube, barrel, star and many more effects.

Twitter Updated 3.2.0, Gets Notifications!

The official Android app saw an important update today and currently sits at v3.2.0, whilst i’m not a massive user of Twitter i do dabble and get the blog posted to the Antics twitter account and, I have a personal account where I follow people of interest from all walks of life. The thing I like about Twitter is the short messages posted and not a whole epic drama written for all to snooze over!

The connect tab has been updated to show both interactions and mentions in one place, the discover tab now shows who your friends follow, when their lists are updated and which tweets are retweeted and faved. Possibl the biggest update comes in the form of push notifications when someone interacts or retweets you.

swiFTP Server (snApp review)

If you are looking for a simple solution to transfer files without, connecting your device physically to your computer and without, any major headache setting it up then check out swiFTP from the Play Store. I’ve been using it for a few weeks without any problems and it’s a breeze to navigate your entire drive space on your phone and transfer files wirelessly.

  

XP Setup

The setup process is simplicity in itself, download the app from play store and install on your device. Go to the setup screen the app will determine an ip address itself, enter a username and password and keep the port number as default and folder location. Save and then start the server, your ip address and port will be shown on the splash screen!

Chrome Browser For ICS 4.0 (snApp review)

After using the stock browser on ICS 4.0 for about a day and feeling really un-impressed with it’s limited features and bland looks, I decided to venture into the other browsers available! I used Mozilla firefox for a short time before i got fed up with it being slow and clunky. I don’t think the desktop idea has really tanslated well enough to the mobile version yet for me to be impressed, and this was deleted within two days!

Chrome Beta is only available on devices running the latest O/S IceCream Sandwich 4.0 and in certain countries, check with http://goo.gl/6ARvc to see if your country can get it yet?

If you are running ICS4.0 and want to download Chrome do so at ‘Google Play Store’

The browser is just that, a straight forward page viewer and isn’t fancy in the smooth, sleek or sexy department. It is however rather functional, it will link with the beta desktop Chrome version and show any open tabs from both devices on each others browser.

  

Pages look well rendered and clean, pages load quickly enough but when you have more than 2 tabs open it does slow down a little! The only beef I’ve had is the fact that the Chrome desktop browser can eat RAM rather quickly!
