The video above demonstrates an awesome new app that optimizes your battery use to help improve your device's battery life! We have all watched as phones have improved over the years. We have seen the advancement from single core processors to 8core octa processors, we have seen clockspeeds improve, the jump from 512mb of ram to 2gb of ram, and these phones have become more powerful than many laptop and desktop computers. The only thing that we have not seen any real improvement in over the years is battery technology. It seems like companys spend tons of money each year developing battery tech that never really pans out. This has birthed the development of special kernels, and all kinds of roms that require root and custom recoveries to flash, and some Oems have just decided to put enormous batteries in their phones to improve on battery life.
OnePowerGuard Pro seeks to solve the only real problem that exist with smartphones today. OnePowerGuard Pro is the culmination of a 2 year project by developer "OneXuan" to develop an app that really does optimize battery life. The app includes several features which are covered in the above video. Head to the link below to grab this app for FREE!

During this long four day weekend you may find yourself doing some chores. I mean when else do you have time to do these things?! You may find yourself on a long road trip. The best way to pass the time is with music. I have found that I can do pretty much anything as long as I have some good music to listen to. It seems to help pass the time, and take your focus off the agony of what you are doing (ie running, raking leaves, etc.). Beats is a new app that can help you navigate through your locally stored music and even music that is stored in the cloud. It includes a unique feature. The Floating controls are wherever you need them. They will float over any app, and give you the ability to play, pause, go back, and go forward. This is better than having to close another app just to change the song. The app is fully customizable and includes swipe animations, action bar color, and list style.
One other cool feature is that you can decide the path where the app finds music when you first boot up the app you can choose google drive or dropbox. Beat also includes an equalizer that allows you to boost bass. The best part about this app is that it is free, and has NO ADS! Head to the link below for the download!

I can't believe how quickly this year has gone by. Many of you went out today and battled the crazies to try and find some incredible deals during Black Friday hoping to find the perfect Christmas gift. If you didn't finish your Christmas shopping today your days are numbered. Today marks the day that many children begin the countdown to a visit from Santa Clause. Developer "Mario Ostwald" has put together a widget which makes this tradition easier than ever. His 3-2-1 countdown widget will display the number of days until your particular event. I wish that I would have found this months ago as I am taking my family to Disney World on Monday. My daughter would have loved this widget to help her count down the days until our vacation!
This app is available on the play store for $1.47 and there is also a lite version for free. Head to the Play Link below for the download.

All the Nexus devices are beginning to get the update to Kit Kat. If you happen to own a device with an OEM skin like touchwiz or sense you may very well be getting the update to Kit Kat soon, but you still won't get the new icons and wallpapers that come with the new Google Experience Kit Kat update. Developer "Alessio94x" has put together an icon pack which includes all of the Kit Kat icons. He has also put together some Kit Kat wallpapers which can be downloaded and applied to your device. The Icon pack should work with most third party launchers. Head to the link below for the download.
The Nexus One was the first ever Flagship Smartphone to be released by Google. The phone was the patriarch device in a lineup of awesome devices that were meant to be the standard for all other OEM devices. The Nexus One was released in 2010, three years ago. The Nexus One was a pretty exciting device when it was released. It was sold exclusively on line and sought to change the way that we bought our devices. While it didin't make much of an impact in the beginning Nexus phones are now sold at incredibly reasonable prices, and are unlocked so you can carry them to whichever carrier you like. Now the big four carriers are even beginning to get away from Subsidized prices with Tmobile's financing of phones, and Verizon's edge plans.
If you are still holding on to your Nexus One you will probably be happy to know that while Google has stopped updating this device, developers haven't forgotten about it. There is now a custom Rom for the Nexus One based on Android Kit Kat 4.4 by developer "texasice". The name of the Rom is Evervolv. It includes all of the basics like extended power menu, battery %, volume button music control, trackball wake, and theme manager.
Some custom features include sixbar signal strength, lockscreen dailpad and other lockscreen mods, a switch to turn on off all custom features to give you the true AOSP feel, and a custom updater. Head to the link below for the download.
Everyone loves Tetris! I can remember the days of my childhood when I spent many hours a day playing Tetris on my GameBoy Classic! I had several other games but I always seemed to make my way back to tetris. It quickly became a family favorite and I can remember many Holiday weeks spent battling for best score between my parents and brothers, and the cousins that happened to stop by. Today there is no need to pass the GameBoy around as we can all grab our cell phones and download whatever game we like. Developer "Alexyhuy" of Msoft has released a simple and intuitive game that is based on the original Tetris.
Controls are incredibly simple and are as follows. Swipe right (move block right), swipe left (move block left), swipe down (move block quickly down), swipe up (rotates block). The music is also reminiscent of the original Tetris. Check out this retro game this Holiday weekend. The game is yours free at the link below.

Cyanogen Mod released an installer app to the play store about a month ago which allowed several devices to install a totally new rom to their device with a simple click of a button. The app did the whole process for you automatically including unlocking bootloaders, installing a recovery, and flashing the CM Rom to your device. Google asked Cyanogen Mod to remove the app from the Play Store as it is in violation of the Google Play terms of service. Cyanogen Mod decided to voluntarily remove the app from the Play Store, otherwise google stated that they would be forced to remove the app administratively. The issue with the app is that it enables usesrs to void their warranty by unlocking the bootloader. If you were interested in the app you can still download it. Head to the link below to download the app.
Recently Motorola announced that they will indeed be releasing an OTA update to bring Kit Kat 4.4 to the Motorola Droid RAZR HD. Who knows when this update will arrive. If you have an unlocked bootloader and a custom recovery installed you can experience Kit Kat on your RAZR HD now! The video above shows the process for installing this rom. Head to the link below for the downloads.
Anyone looking for a phone we got deals popping all over the place...Good luck with your decisions !! Android it UP !!
AT&T, Sprint or Verizon Galaxy S4 free with contract via Best Buy
AT&T, Sprint or Verizon Galaxy S4 free with contract via Best Buy, promo valid until November 30th..
Black Friday is almost here, but if you are looking for a deal on a new Samsung Galaxy S4, there’s no need to wait. Best Buy is currently offering the 16GB version of the handset for free with contract for AT&T, Sprint and Verizon subscribers. Aside from standard carrier colors like black and white, Best Buy also features its own exclusive “Artic Blue” colorfor those looking to get a hold of a version of the handset that will stand out in a crowd.
Although there are many of us who would rather free ourselves from contracts altogether, there are still some folks that prefer subsidized handsets and don’t mind signing a contract to get them. If you’re the type of buyer that prefers the contract model, you’re going to have trouble finding a better deal than this one. Besides the contract, the only other catch is that you’ll still need to pay an activation fee for the device.
