Description

Outsmart your smartphone and make it act more like the phones you are used to. Simple and uncomplicated, FastHome delivers a light-weight solution for a home screen replacement. If you are looking for new and cool features, then FastHome is NOT for you. If you are tired of waiting 10, 20, even 30 seconds for your home screen to load, and you don't want to do a factory reset, then FastHome is for you. (This is a problem seen on the Motorola Droid, newer phones may not have this issue). If you don't really want to learn how to use all of the features of your "smart" phone, and all you really want is just to use the phone as a phone was intended, then FastHome is for you. FastHome caches your applications so you dont have to wait for them to load as they sometimes do in the default home or other home replacements.FastHome is not meant to compete with other home screen replacements for Android, such as 91 Panda Home and ADW / ADWLauncher EX. These applications are intended to offer more features. FastHome goes the other direction. Strip out unneeded features to simplify and increase performance. While home screen performance may not be an issue on newer phones, simplicity is always needed. This idea was forged watching people of all ages fumble with their phone or complain about how complex and complicated smart phones are, or specifically Android phones.

  • Google confirms it will pay $1.1 billion to acquire HTC’s Pixel team and license technology

    The rumor mill was working overtime over the last few weeks as everyone speculated what a Google acquisition of HTC would look like. Would it be a Motorola situation? Maybe more like Microsoft acquiring Nokia? In the end, it’s nothing so extreme as an…

  • [Hands-on] Assassin’s Creed Rebellion, a fresh take on an aging franchise

    At first glance Assassin’s Creed Rebellion looks quite a lot like Fallout Shelter, which isn’t a surprise considering they were both developed by Behaviour Interactive. But unlike Fallout Shelter, Assassin’s Creed Rebellion’s gameplay is centered arou…

  • Android 8.0 Oreo finally arrives on Nexus Player

    The Nexus Player is getting pretty long in the tooth, as it was released in 2014. It’s still supported with software updates though, and was one of the devices to receive Android O Developer Previews earlier this year. However, a nasty bug was discovered close to official release, which caused the Nexus Player to upload a massive amount of data for no apparent reason.

    The director of Android TV at Google later confirmed to us that because the problem was discovered so late in development, the fix would arrive with the final Android 8.0 build.

  • Best Android browser for porn [NSFW]

    When privacy and malware-blocking matter more than ever.

    A lot of people want to use their phone to look at online porn. According to Pornhub’s statistics, 72% of their total traffic (SFW Pornhub stats and press blog link) comes from mobile devices. And since Pornhub is listed as the 44th most popular site on the internet, that’s a lot.

    We don’t judge here. What we want is for you to get the most out of your phone, whether that be fantasy football or porn. With that in mind, let’s talk about the best Android browser for porn.

    Firefox Focus

    Firefox Focus is the best Android browser to use to watch pornography on your phone. But best is very subjective here, as it is in all things.

    The reasoning behind this pick is that if we’re going to pick one app as best, it has to do two things better than the rest: block potentially malicious ads and leave no trace of what it was used for. By default, most online ad networks and tracking services are blocked when using Focus. The same blocki…

  • [Update: $889.99] You can already buy a dual-SIM Note8 on eBay for $899.99

    Samsung has a history of releasing Dual-SIM variants of their devices, and the Galaxy Note8 is no exception. Since the phone is so new, availability of the Dual-SIM is limited, and it doesn’t seem to be on sale at all in the United States. But if you want one, you can buy one on eBay for a penny shy of $900.

  • U.S. carriers offer free calls, texts and data after Hurricane Maria and Mexico City earthquake

    Carriers are offering free calls, texts and data following Hurricane Maria and the latest Mexican earthquake.

    As Hurricane Maria continues to make its way along the East Coast of the United States (after already destroying numerous Carribean islands), AT&T and T-Mobile have announced they will be waiving fees for calls and text messages sent to affected areas, as well as offering unlimited calls, texts and data to customers inside the affected regions. We have not heard if Verizon or Sprint will offer similar service, but we will update this post if and when we receive that news.

    At the same time, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon have released statements saying that customers could make free calls and/or send free text messages to Mexico following yet another deadly earthquake. AT&T also stated that Mexican customers would be able to access free calling, texting and data. Again, we will update this post if Sprint makes a similar offer.

    Regardless of service fees, those with …

  • Unlocked Moto X4 with Motorola software will come to the U.S. this year

    This is really good news for Motorola fans.

    One of the big questions coming out of Google’s announcement of the Android One Moto X4 coming to Project Fi was what impact this had on the release of a “normal” Motorola version in the U.S. Thankfully, Motorola has confirmed to Android Central that there will be a standard, unlocked, Motorola software version of the Moto X4 hitting the U.S. this year.

    That means it would no longer be part of the Android One program, and would offer all of the Motorola-specific features and tweaks so many of us enjoy using. On the other side of the coin, it’s also likely to have more relaxed standards in terms of a commitment to software updates.

    It looks like a really nice phone, but it’s probably not worth changing carriers for.

    This is a big sigh of relief for those who were intrigued by the idea of the mid-range Moto X4 being a great phone at a reasonable $399 price, but weren’t willing (or able) to switch carriers for it. While the Android One…
