Removing built in applications from Android Tablets?

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

We’ve received another email today that has got us stumped! Janar writes:

I bought Samsung Galaxy GT-P1000 tablet in Saudi Arabia. In this tablet some of the applications like Quran, prayer timings, direction for Khbha etc. can not be removed or uninstalled. Can somebody give solution in this regards.

I had no idea that this sort of thing would occur anywhere in the world, but if you know how to remove these applications from a Samsung Galaxy tablet please comment to this post and we’ll try to let Janar know the good news.

Alternatively, if someone would like to send me a tablet so I can have a play, that would work just as well :-)

Remote Camera App

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

We had a question sent to us the other day asking if we knew of a good remote camera app for Android phones. Now I suppose it depends on exactly what that means but I took it to mean an app that could be used to remotely take a photo on another camera… From my own research I can’t find anything that is suitable, there are a few camera apps that allow you to use your phone as a webcam or remotely turn the camera on your phone on/off from your PC but they’re mostly not very good.

Now, there is a DSLR camera remote app for the iPhone, created by onOne and maybe if enough people ask them they will port it across to Android phones:

Please let us know if you’ve found any apps that would work or if you know of a high quality remote camera app for Android submit it to this site, don’t forget screenshots when you submit.

SatsportsNA use Pressitt for Satski

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

We’re pleased to see SatsportsNA use our sister site Pressitt to launch an online news release to promote their excellent skiing app: Satski

View the release on Pressitt

Anyone visiting Revelstoke, Lake Louise, Panorama or Moonlight Basin (or their websites) this winter may find offers for Satski, an interactive GPS trail map that may one day make the traditional paper trail map a thing of the past.

The resorts, scattered throughout BC, Alberta and Montana, are just a few of the North American resorts that have recently partnered with SatsportsNA , pioneers in GPS app development, to offer skiers and riders Satski, an app for their smart phone that provides navigation, live stats, Google Earth replays, safety features, resort information and more.

Smartphone Coasters

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

Well, this is something new for us – we’re reviewing an actual tech gadget! The smartphone coaster comes from a simple idea – instead of laying your smartphone flat on your desk, why not have a little stand that allows you to see the screen easily.

Great for checking emails and text messages as they come in and even better for watching video on the phone while on the move. If you’re in a meeting use the coaster to keep your phone in view so you don’t need to keep on playing with it to view incoming messages or to check the time of your next appointment, just prop it in front of you while giving a talk and keep track of your timing.

With a variety of uses this would be a great little stocking filler. If you’re wondering why most phones don’t come with stands, this little gadget proves they don’t need to!
