    Recommendation: Awesomely useful app. Especially with the Chrome Addon. You can instantly share what you are doing on your browser to your Android device. This app taps in to the amazingly rich Android Notification System that has gotten better with each new release of Android.

    The Chrome Addon is what gives life to this app.
    -Wanna view something thats off-limits at work/college :p
    -Stepping away from your PC/Laptop but wanna continue browsing that page. (Chrome does that by default I know but this is quicker)
    --- Just PUSH that link to your Android and it instantly pops up in the notification.

    You can push small files, messages, links, ToDo lists instantly.


    1. Install App on your Android.
    2. Goto www.pushbullet.com. Add your device using your Google Account and your're set.
    3. Install Pushbullet Chrome Addon.

    .. and you're set. :)

    Recommendation: Since the release of the Ice Cream Sandwich & Google's continuing tiff with Facebook over sharing user data. Android has permanently removed Facebook direct integration withing the Operating System. Most notably missing is the ability so sync your FB contact to your address book and merge them with your Google Contacts. Since the Release of Android 4.1 JB, Google has allowed for high-res Contact images in the People app. However the missing integration with Facebook which has the latest on your friends makes the app feature pretty useless.

    ENTER HaxSync ... since its initial release this app has matured quite a lot. Originally meant as a work around to syncing your Facebook contact info with your Phonebook. Now with support for HD contact images you can add high-res Profile Photos of your friends right from Facebook into your Phonebook.
    - The app intelligently recognizes matching contacts and updates them with the Facebook Profile Picture
    - Creates a new Calendar in your Google Calendar with the Birthdays of your Facebook contacts. It can also include Facebook events.
    - Creates a link directly to Fb profile in the Phonebook Contact.
    - Add Facebook activity to your Contacts personal stream.

    So if you're an obsessive-compulsive who likes to keep his info formatted and presentable, This App is an in-disposable tool.

    Bottom line. It integrates Facebook into your Google Contacts as well as Google+ does. :)

    MUST-HAVE-APP.

    I can never come to spending money for Mobile Games .. :p ;)

    Unified Remote is especially great if you connect your Laptop/PC to your bigscreen and want a wireless KB/Mouse type interface.

    Recommendation:
    How WW works. WW will take any size image and set it as your wallpaper; which means you are no longer forced to Crop a large image to set it as wallpaper (Auto resize images). Images are found by a media scan. No Scroll is not compatible with all Home Apps. LauncherPro & ADW work well.





    Recommendation:
    Camera360 (in Chinese Pinyin ‘Xiangji360’) is a worldwide popular camera app. It is ever honored as one of Top100 Technology Products all over the world by PCWorld in 2011. It is easy and fluent. It has rich Effects and has won 80 million users around the world so far. It is pioneering in phone photography and leads fashion of that.
