HoneyGram web app for Android Honeycomb Tablets

June 27th, 2011


We are still waiting for an official Instagram app for Android… everyone will have to settle for the next best thing.

HoneyGram…an Instagram web app. This particular web app is made for Android Honeycomb. It takes advantage of the touch screen and gestures to see and share all of your pictures.

There really is no sense waiting for Instagram to come out with an app for Android when they clearly aren’t interested in doing so. If I was to make a guess…maybe they have been tempted by a ‘magic’ Apple and have decided to abandon all thought of a liaison with a little green Android.

All the usual Instagram perks work. Users can see all the popular images on Instagram, images based on location, search tags and put a widget onto your homescreen.

Many more features are unlocked when you log in with your Instagram account. Authenticating allows you to view your images, your friend feed, view other user’s images, follow/unfollow users, view more results for tag searches, and add 3 more types of widgets to your dashboard. (my friends, tag search, my pictures)

See the history of your Facebook Status posts

June 27th, 2011


Facebook is great for current events… and Facebook is great for sharing how you feel about any given topic. Facebook really dominates for posting the latest photos that you just took with your phone.

Facebook does a lot of things really great…except the past.

Facebook sucks when it comes to your Facebook past! It should be much easier to find that one important conversation where something was said and you can’t quite remember who said it… or how it was worded. Maybe it was the date and time that you couldn’t remember.

Facebook remembers all this information. But doesn’t make it very easy to get to.

Now there is a solution…

Take a look at StatusHistory.com

StatusHistory will take you down Facebook memory lane… the easy way!

Simply go to StatusHistory.com and login with your Facebook user name and password.

Depending on how popular you are on Facebook, you’ll soon be browsing some interesting stats about your status and actually viewing your past status posts and the comments associated with them.

Here are some stats that indicate that I don’t spend as much time on Facebook as Mr. Zuckerberg would like!

I have dug down a bit deeper and found some useful information that I had recently forgotten. I am glad that I found StatusHistory.com and that it has helped me to find lost information.

We document our lives on Facebook. We share our thoughts, insights, and observations on a daily basis. But where does this data go?

StatusHistory.com is my attempt to take a look at all of this data. Who is my most active Facebook friend? What status update generated the most “Likes”. How many Status updates have I posted in the past two years?

I hope you enjoy as much as I did taking a look into my Status History. If you did, tell a friend.

Hulu Plus Available for Android

June 23rd, 2011

Hulu Plus is now available for Android. Unfortunately, it’s only available for a limited number of devices. I’m assuming this is due to hardware limitations?

The folks at Hulu call it “the first phase of the Android rollout,” and it means that Hulu Plus is available on six devices: Nexus One, Nexus S, HTC Inspire 4G, Motorola Droid II, Motorola Droid X, and Motorola Atrix.

There may be support added for more Android devices later on this year and into next.

The app is a free to download and install, but to use it you have to be a subscriber to Hulu Plus.

GGTracker Trojan imitates Android Market to fool you

June 20th, 2011

Check out the above image.

This is how the latest piece of Android market malware will be trying to trick you into installing it. By trying to convince you that you’re at the Android Market. This malware is called GGTracker, and it will attempt to sign you up for premium text messaging, which will lead to extra charges on your cell phone bill.

Lookout came across it, and wanted to be sure we all share the not-so-good news about how this one operates. It happens when you click a malicious in-app advertisement — your browser opens to the URL in the image, looking just like the Market, in hopes that you’ll install the fake (in this case a Battery Saver app) application. Also spotted was a version that claims to be an adult app (com.space.sexypic). After you click to install it, you’re directed to install via the download notification. For now, it doesn’t appear that this one is in the Android Market — which means it might stay around for a while.
