Tips for Android Application Development through a Third Party Developer

May 22, 2011 by  
Filed under Android

Socialjitney.com is the premier android application development company. We have tremendous experience building applications for iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Android, and Symbian.

Of the things that have revolutionized the way in which we use our hand-held devices, applications are perhaps the foremost. These days, we use these devices as more than just as phones and organizers. Apps have been developed for functions as diverse as guiding tourists around in an unfamiliar
city to recording the heartbeats of patients. In fact, these apps are deemed as so reliable that even doctors are using these instead of stethoscopes.

You must have heard stories that are people making fortunes within short periods of time through Android application development. You must not think that all these people managed to be successful just because they had remarkable technical skills related to the languages in which these apps are
written in. The fact of the matter is that they managed to make apps that subsequently proved to be popular because these actually added value to the devices on which they were installed.

Even if you are not a whiz in the languages or platforms in which Android application development is done, you need not worry because the experts can handle the technical aspect of the development if you tell them what service you wish to provide through your app.

While choosing experts who will do this job for you, it is always a better idea to go for the experts who are part of a company. If you give the assignment to a company, you will be able to be sure that there will be someone to provide you technical assistance even if the expert who actually
designed the program is unavailable for some reason. Moreover, well-organized companies manage to achieve more within a short period of time because they can enjoy the advantages of dividing labor according to the specialization of the people.

While deciding which company you will opt for, you must remember that there are quite a few fly-by-night operators trying to fleece people like you. Therefore, you should be careful about choosing a company that has been providing services for quite a few years.

You must also be careful about the financial arrangements that you agree to because there are Android application development companies that will make you agree to terms that makes you financially obliged to them in spite of the fact that you came up with the idea in the first place.

With Apple enjoying a monopoly in the market of sleek and stylish gadgets, one would have wondered would there ever be a competitor who could come close to what they are offering if not the same? But brace yourself as there finally is some competition for Apple’s iPad with the introduction of the
unbelievable piece of technology called the 10″ Android Tablet.

This gadget has taken the industry by a storm because of its functional competence as well as the stylish element it brings with it. Why would Apple iPad with such a large market share be worried about the 10″ Android Tablet? It offers the best cheap tablet android deal which is as less as two
hundred dollars than the price of an Apple iPad. Quite fascinating indeed.

The 10″ Android tablet weighs only sixteen ounces compared to iPad’s twenty four ounces which again gives it a competitive edge. It makes it even easier to carry. Just slide it in your bag and you’re ready to move. It has been made more sturdy and firm with a stainless steel frame protecting it

Its relative low price makes it ever more attractive for gadget lovers. However there is a slight dark side to things as well. The 10 Android Tablet has its own online application store and is currently offering only five thousands applications which is only a small fraction of the twenty give thousand Apple is offering. This is something they are working on and will surely come up with more
interesting applications for its users.

The model number is an indication of the screen size as well as the hard disk size.

The Best Free Android Apps For Sports Fans

May 22, 2011 by  
Filed under Android

Just like all the other categories of Android apps, the sports apps available for your Android phone are extremely diverse. In my opinion, this particular category may be the most diverse simply because of all the different sports that are played throughout the world. Of course with every sport
comes hundreds of Android apps.

If, for instance, you’re looking for an app that will allow you to keep up with the many European soccer leagues, you need to have at least some help before you start downloading apps. If you go in blind, chances are you will download ten apps that sound like they would do the trick before you
find one that does half what you would want it to do! That’s just how it is. I just hope that if you go about finding apps that way, you are doing so with free apps- otherwise you could be out hundreds of dollars pretty darn quick.

One last note: I am going to concentrate on free Android sports apps that are popular now and will be popular in the future. Well that’s obvious, right? Not exactly- a lot of the apps fly to the top of the rankings because it’s a certain time of the year or a huge sporting event is going on
(World Cup or the Olympics). I’m also looking into the pure quality of the app and the developer of the app. This way, if you want an awesome Football App (either US Football or regular Football), you should be pretty happy now and in the future with the one I list…

Although there are a lot of Android sports apps that do many more things than providing sports news, I’m concentrating on free Android apps for sports fans on this particular list.

Sporting News Pro Football
If you’re a huge NFL fan, this app should be on your phone. This is a great app to have for game day or if you’re like me and like to look up every stat for every player! The user interface is classy and not too crowded.

CBS Sports Pro Football
I really shouldn’t have two pro football Android apps on my list, but it’s the most popular sport in the US and after thinking about it, why not have three? Maybe I won’t go that far. This is a great football app for everyone, but it’s really geared towards those who play Fantasy Football
through CBS Sports. Just login and you will have complete control over your fantasy team!

NBA Game Time Lite 2009-10
This is the official NBA Android app from last season. This coming season’s app will surely be even better! It provides all the player and team stats, real-time scores and even TV information so that you can find out what channel your favorite team is playing on! If you’re an NBA fan and you
want a standalone pro basketball app, this is your best option.

F1 LIVE RACING
Are you a Formula 1 fan? I’ll tell you what, honestly, I’m not much of a fan but that doesn’t mean I don’t love this app. This free Android sports app provides more than just live updates for every F1 race around the world. Plain and simple, the graphics and the features are fun. If you
download this app, you won’t be disappointed!

FotMob 5.0 – Live Soccer
The best soccer leagues from around the world are followed on this app. Some of them include the Premier League, Serie A, Primera Division and Allsvenskan. I could go on and on, but I really wouldn’t have a clue about what I’m talking about, haha. I’ll admit that I’m not the biggest soccer
(football) fan, but I’ve looked through this app and it’s a very solid, professionally built app that I would recommend to anyone.

ESPN ScoreCenter
I really shouldn’t have to say much more than this is the official ESPN app. Heck, I’m not going to: ESPN is “The Worldwide Leader In Sports” after all!

SportsTap
This is again more of a sports portal. All of the big sports are covered by this app and it’s obvious why hundreds of thousands of people really like it! It’s tastefully done and you’ll never complain about a lack of stats or information.

If you’re looking for just one free Android sports app to satisfy your sports-fix, you can’t go wrong with either ESPN ScoreCenter or SportsTap!

Major League Baseball News
There is borderline too much (not in a bad way) baseball information crammed into this app! If you can’t get enough of MLB, you need to download this free Android app now. Along with all of the standard stats, standings and results, each team has their own page and you can customize your own RSS
feed through this app!

MMA News
All the latest results, upcoming matches and octagon gossip you’d ever want! If you’re into Mixed Martial Arts, this is the app to get. IMO, it blows away any other MMA-related Android app.

Sports Radio Droid
This radio app gives you the capability to listen to just about any sports show in the country! There’s a healthy list of stations that are covered and I literally NEED this app when I go on vacation. Heaven forbid I’d be away from my sports talk show for a few days, haha. It’s also a great
app if you’re living far away from your hometown and your favorite team.

Ten Great Free Android Weather Apps

May 22, 2011 by  
Filed under Android

There are hundreds of great free Android weather apps that more than make up for the lack of paid weather apps in the Android market. The fact that there are more free Android weather apps is a great thing for those of us who like to thoroughly inspect an app before choosing to make it part of our
permanent collection. This list is quite a diverse one with many different specialties. Here are ten of the best free Android weather apps around.

Weather

This aptly named free Android weather app, developed by Michael Bachman, is one I would recommend to those who just want a plain and simple, easy-to-use app. It’s fast and very reliable; this is an app to try if all you want is a simple forecast and not many other bells and whistles.

iMap Weather

This app provides radar images and forecasts. It can also give you detailed current weather conditions (for local and international locations). If you choose to check out this weather app, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the great visuals!

Moon Phase

A very simple free Android weather app developed by Udell Enterprises, Inc, it obviously shows you the particular phase of the moon for the given data. Although this app lacks some additional add-ons to make it truly spectacular, it does exactly what it promises quite efficiently.

Snowstorm weather widget

This is another very specific free Android weather app. Snowstorm gives you forecasts regarding snowstorms and beyond. If you’re like me and you live in snow country, this is definitely an app I would suggest for when you’re out and about during the snow season.

Radar Now!

If you want an app that will visually display the current weather through radar, Radar Now! Is your best free Android app option. Simple and fast, Radar Now! gives you what you need without any hassle.

AccuWeather.com

This is a GPS-based weather update app and is great for getting worldwide forecasts. As you might have guessed, this app was developed by the same people behind Accuweather.com, so you’ll be sure the information you get is accurate and reliable and that this app will only get better!

Weather Widget – Free

Although there is a paid version of this free Android weather app, this one remains to be quite adequate in giving quick and reliable weather updates. This is one of the weather apps that will do just about anything for you. Trust me, this app would be a great addition to your Android phone. To
enhance this app, get the Weather Widget Forecast Addon, another free app that does just what it says. If you try the Weather Widget and like it, download the free Forecast Addon and you’ll have a winning combination!

WeatherBug

Another great free Android weather app that offers local weather updates as well as just about anything else you’d want to know about general weather. The updates are accurate and the add-ons (including maps and videos) are amazing. This is one of the very few free Android apps that are up there
in a league of their own.

The Weather Channel

Easily the best free Android weather app available in the Android Market; it’s also the most popular Android app in the weather category. The official Weather Channel app provides weather updates straight from one of the most respected weather sources. You can set a default location to get regular
updates without doing anything else. The last thing I’ll say about this app: you should download this app for your Android phone.

Pros And Cons Of The 10 Android Tablet

May 22, 2011 by  
Filed under Android

The best cheap tablet android deals that are being offered everywhere have been the talk of the town for quite a while now but what is it exactly about them that everyone is going absolutely nuts after them. On the other side, there also have been certain issues people have faced with the 10″ android tablet. With this article, we will be reviewing the pros and cons of the tablet and see what is there that people like or dislike about the 10″ android tablet.

Pros of the 10″ android tablet

Design

The initial series of 10″ android tablet were more focused on the functional aspect of the gadget. They were technically more correct and appealing for the users. But with the advent of the new ones they have incorporated sexy design looks which make the 10″ android tablet physically more attractive. The tablet is covered with a metal chassis made out of stainless steel which makes it very durable. In other words, it provides sturdiness with an element of style and fashion. The weight of the 10″ android tablet is an astonishingly low four hundred and eighty grams making it all the more convenient for the users. It surely gives a different option to the customers who want to enjoy the usage of a sleek gadget.

Android

The use of Android is what makes this 10″ android tablet so fascinating. The touch of the screen is very sensitive which means you do not have to keep rubbing your fingers against the screen to make it work. Just a slight touch of the pen or your fingers and you are ready to go. With the latest
version of the operating system, it becomes more enjoyable to use.

Display

A display that is 10.1″ in size makes it uses even more fascinating. It has a resolution of 1024×600 which provides a very crisp and vibrant color front to the user. The screen is non-responsive to sunlight which means it usable even at times of high sunlight unlike some of the other gadgets available. It has a multi touch option which makes the use of touch screen an absolute joy.

Kickstand

One great advantage of the 10″ android tablet is that it comes with a kickstand in case you want to place it on a table and use it. This makes it more convenient and also saves money as you wouldn’t be required to buy some costly accessory to serve as a kickstand.

Price

Its competitive advantage to quite an extent is the relatively low price it offers. There are best cheap tablet android deals for the users to explore and take advantage of.

Cons

Speed

One thing the 10 Android Tablet lacks is processing speed as compared to some of the other types of gadgets available. If you want to open a web page with flash or other heavy data, it becomes too slow and affects the overall processing of the gadget. The 256MB RAM is perhaps a major problem.

Apps

It has its own online application story but the problem it has is the limited number of applications available. If you compare it to the number of applications Apple’s Ipad offers, they only have a fraction of that.
