image thumb11 Facebook Messenger For Android Arrives To Kill SMS.. Well Maybe In Time

Goodbye SMS, BlackBerry Messenger and everything else as Facebook launches its Facebook Messenger [download]. That is exactly what the hype is all around though I doubt this messenger ousting any of the existing instant messaging apps on a mobile device. Had it been that way, many other apps would have already got  a better chance to oust these mobile applications.

image thumb18 Cydia Search Lets You Search Cydia App Store On Your ComputerFor all those with a jailbroken iPhone, Cydia is an absolute necessity for being the App Store for the jailbroken apps. I have in particular disliked how one can get lost searching through its categories for something you aren’t fully aware of where to find. That to on your iOS device like the iPhone, iPad or the iPod Touch. Think of the same being done on your desktop or your Macs, easy isn’t it? Well Cydia Search from Plant-iPhones is all about doing the same.

App Store fever is coming to Microsoft as well as images of the Windows 8 App Store were leaked on the Internet. The app store is highly likely to feature in Windows 8 and from the images, it seems we will have quite a desktop like feel to it. That’s just my opinion though.

The idea of suing someone sounds fascinating. Of course not being sued is something I wouldn’t personally like being tried upon. There had to be a way to get this going online especially with all those friends on the social networks you are a part of and who are often found doing many things they deserve being taken to court for. Poking on Facebook is one of those irritating habits.

image thumb77 Android Market now Offering 100,000 Apps, Still Quite A Distance To Compete The App Store

The Android Market has just crossed the 100,000 App mark. That’s just what came in as a message on Twitter from the AndroidDev as he shared the Google Mobile OS surpassing a major milestone. I bet the Apple fans are going to jump in with comments slurring that this is no thing compared to what the App Store has to offer and an equally large number of apps for the jailbroken devices. But that’s not the argument for this post.

Google only recently expanded the territories of the Android Market by extending it to over 20 countries. 20 countries plus and an open sourced mobile OS is all you need to attract the brainy developers out there to add more apps, be they utilities or games to the market. The Android only recently took over market shares from the Apple iPhone in the US and it continues to expand exponentially. And while the apps for the iOS based devices might be thrice as many as those n the Android Market [around 280,000 Apps], I can see that the number will be crossed easily in the next year.
