I wanted to share some of my favorite Android applications that have made it to my smartphones homescreen. I’ll try to make this a regular feature and highlight apps you might not have noticed that are worth a look:

Spare Phone: Spare Phone formerly gVoice is a $1.99 Android VoIP app developed by guidology that allows you to use your data connection (WiFi, 3G, 4G,EVDO) to place voice calls using a Google Voice Account. gVoice essentially turns your phone or tablet into a free wireless phone when using the application over WiFi.

Plume: Plume formerly Touiteur is highly customizable Twitter client that has many desirable features including the ability to colorize your timeline, pull to refresh your timeline, handle multiple twitter accounts, picture preview, autocomplete Twitter hashtags, the ability to mute select users and much more it is my current Twitter client of choice. There is a free ad-supported version of Plume as well as a premium ad-free version of Plume available for $4.99.

The time is finally here, the Sprint version of Galaxy Nexus is now up for pre-order. The announcement came via Sprint’s Twitter page, revealing that the Nexus will be sold for $199.99 and would be coming to stores April 22nd. All signs had been leading to a tentative release by Sprint and now it is a reality.

With Sprint being the only major cellphone company that does not throttle unlimited data plans, will you be making the jump to the Sprint Network?

Dropbox offering additional free storage, for referrals!

by George Heymann | @techeadlines

Dropbox has been one of our most used Android apps, it was selected as a must have Android app by us in the past.

Dropbox is a cloud based file storage, sharing and syncing service. It allows you to access your files stored within your virtual Dropbox from any other device (PC, Mac, Phone etc…) that has the software installed. Great way to share files across devices and platforms. I use this software daily to share files between various devices without the need to carry flash drives or disks.

Dropbox is now offering to expand your free storage up to 16GB. You can take advantage this offer by inviting your friends to Dropbox! For every friend who joins and installs Dropbox, they’ll give you both 500 MB of bonus space.

If you don’t currently have a Dropbox account  start here, once you sign-up for service you can invite your friends with your personal referral links, email, or by utilizing Facebook and Twitter.

Google introduces a new local search experience across your devices.

by George Heymann |@techeadlines

technology-headlines.com

Google has simplified sharing searches between devices by making those searches available under a new “Recent” icon on the Google Search screen. So next time you go to Google.com on your Android phone or iPhone your recent web searches will be available for users who have web history enabled and are logged into Google when doing their search.

It used to be a multi-step process to share information between my desktop browser and my mobile phone. Typically I would perform a search on my desktop browser then use chrome to phone to share the link to that information with my Android Smartphone.

Smartphone Briefs

By Chris Coleman|@PhoneKnack

Starting February 13th through the 14th, Verizon is allowing users to tweet their most creative confessions with the hashtag #TweetHeart in order to win a free colored Droid RAZR. If you don’t like purple, simply give it to that special someone of yours. Until then, be on the lookout for the contest on Verizon Wireless’s official Twitter page.

PS. your partner may still like a romantic date even if you win the free phone.

For those who happened to miss the Samsung Galaxy Note Superbowl ad, the ad is simple no longer shall customers have to wait in long lines in order to buy a subpar phone such as iPhone, instead the Samsung Galaxy Note shall be your savior. It was a quirky and funny commercial, some may say it was a tad over the top, but the stage it was premiered on, sometimes over the top is better.
