Which App Shall I Review?

So you can all see that the ‘Android App Review Show’ is back up and running. I no longer have the stress and strain of University to distract me, and I have a degree in Multimedia Technology and Design under my belt to help me make a professional …

Android App Review Show – AllSport GPS

This weeks feature video is a look at Allsport GPS. Trimble Outdoors were kind enough to send me their Pro version of the app and put me in contact with testing team so that I could get to know the app a little better. Check out the video …

Sony Ericsson Xperia arc review

The Sony Ericsson Xperia arc has a lot going for it. A curvy yet painfully thin design, with an 8.1 megapixel camera, HDMI output, a massive 4.2″ screen and HD video recording with constant focus. It has the Sony Bravia display engine for a crystal-clear display and something …

Twicca | A Fun, Feature-Packed Twitter Client for Android

There are  a huge amount of Twitter applications over in the Android Market, so choosing the right one can be pretty confusing. While there are some good apps, many of them are, quite frankly, pretty terrible. When I used to own an HTC Hero, I was using Twidroid, …

HTC Desire S Review

We’ll be up-front about this from the start. The HTC Desire S has a lot of the same characteristics and specs as the original HTC Desire. We almost felt a little let-down when it first appeared in Barcelona, especially up-against dual-core 1GHz phones. Somehow I felt insulted that …

HTC Incredible S Review

HTC have been around for ages it seems and their handsets seem to get better and better with time, especially in the Android range and the Incredible S is another device which fits into that category. This review device was sent to us by the kind people at HTC …

Samsung Galaxy Tab – Too Small Or Just Right?

The Samsung Galaxy Tab has been around for a little while now and along with the Apple iPad started a new craze of tablet devices to keep people connected on the move. I first got hands on the Tab last October at a Three event in London and …

Advent Vega Initial Thoughts

You may have noticed that Dixons have reduced the price of the Advent Vega to £199. If not they have and here is the link. I bought one recently and I thought I would share my initial thoughts about the device to try and help potential buyers make …

Zeemote Bluetooth Game Controller Review

I recently bought a Zeemote. It is a bluetooth game controller that has drivers available for Android, Windows Mobile, Blackberry, Symbian and Windows. Here are some pictures of the joystick. This joystick has been around for a while now, the manufacturers Zeemote originally bundled these with various Nokia …

HTC 7 Pro Review

The HTC 7 Pro is a handset which was announced back in October along with the other HTC Windows Phone 7 devices like the Mozart and HD7 but has only just been made available here in the UK recently and at present is the only Windows Phone 7 …

Samsung Galaxy Ace Review

Available on Three a lot of people have already confused this with the Samsung Galaxy S II. Sure, it’s not as powerful as the S II and the camera isn’t as high resolution but hey, this is a good looking phone with a lot to give. OK, first …

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro Review

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro is a big name for a diddy smartphone. It’s not a whole lot different to the X10 Mini we reviewed before Christmas but the key difference here is the sliding QWERTY keyboard. The shape and size of the phone makes it …

LauncherPro – Android customisation done right

Ask any geek why Android is great and more often than not the answer will include the word open. One of Android’s biggest purported benefits is it’s openness, which we’re told leads to more innovation and greater customisability. Unfortunately, I’d argue that in practice it’s also a big …

The Italian Job

What a trip!  Well, as I promised a little while ago here is a review of some apps that I used while trying to navigate around Rome and Florence on a fantastic sightseeing trip.  To make it easier (and shorter) I will list the apps and what I …

Galaxy Nexus Review

Android is becoming an unstoppable force in the mobile industry. A wide range of manufacturers, each have their own spin on the OS, have cranked out device after device.  Google, however, has released the unbranded, vanilla version for a select few handsets which go under the brand ‘Nexus’. The Nexus …

HTC Desire Z Review

The HTC Desire Z is a rather interesting creation packing both a high resolution touch screen with Android and a slide out full QWERTY keyboard.  This is the handset known as the T-Mobile G2 over in America, not to be confused with the T-Mobile G2 here in the …

HTC Media Link Review

The HTC Media Link is a tiny box with two small outputs. What it does is fairly magical and quite cool. Plugging it together is simple enough. A familiar miniUSB charging plug goes into one hole, a miniHDMI plug in the other. After hooking the HDMI into your …

Motorola Defy Review

We’ve never had anything like this before. A phone that’s water-resistant, dust proof and scratch resistant. In theory this should be life-proof. Inside there’s Android 2.1 with the tweaked graphical user interface called “MOTOBLUR” to bring your social networks together and make navigation a little easier. A 5 …
