Move Android Apps APK from Internal Memory to SD Card

Normally phone internal memory is normally not enough to install all the required applications of our choice, thus it becomes very difficult to manage all the applications and use them accordingly. The Android version 2.2 allows us to move applications to SD card so that we can install applications on the SD card and thus use all the required applications as and when wanted. The application namely MoveToSD will help with the problem as easily as putting a dot. This application is very easy to use as it has a very simplistic UI which helps in easy application management.
MoveToSD is just the right application for those who want to manage applications, thus applications can be moved from internal phone memory to SD card and can also be moved from SD to internal phone memory as per requirement. The very simple UI makes the job easier as we can very easily reach the columns, here there are two columns, one for applications installed on SD card and another for applications installed on phone memory. Along with that the application also displays the amount of memory left free in phone memory and amount of memory left free on the SD card, thus we are very much aware of the memory that will be used up and the memory that will be left free on the SD card as well as phone memory.
MoveToSD can also perform normal operations like force stop, uninstall, clear data and clear cache. The only setback for this application is that only one application can be moved to SD at a given time, thus batch operations are not possible. If the application is used in order to save phone memory then batch operations are really not required. For example, if an application is frequently used then that particular application can be left in the phone memory and games which take up most of the space can be moved to SD card in order save phone memory. Application is only supported on Android devices with version 2.2 and above.

Wave Alarm for iOS DEVICES

Wave Alarm is a handy alarm clock application for iOS devices that uses a motion control technique to snooze or silence the alarm. Unlike usual alarm clocks, the user has to grab the device and click on the “Dismiss” or “Snooze” button to silence the alarm. Wave Alarm just requires the user to wave over the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad to snooze/silence the alarm.Apart from the usual alarm clock, Wave Alarm also has Real Time weather allowing users to know the native weather even before they get out of bed. With a beautiful and user-friendly layout, Wave Alarm is a unique alarm clock that is a must try app for every iPhone user.
One drawback of the application is that motion detection does not work if the application is not open, meaning that you must open the application before you go to bed. In case you forget to open the application, the digital alarm will not play.


  • Free to use.
  • Just wave over iPhone to silence/snooze alarm – no need to touch device.
  • 10 beautiful alarm sounds to choose from.
  • Alarm music can be picked from iPod Library.

Robinson v1.18 apk+data

Build a paradise all your own! Escape the dusty city and go for a tropic ride! The adventure begins today!
The plane has crashed, and you are the sole survivor. You look around and see palm-trees basking in the tropical sun a€” this could be a nice place to live, after all. It may take a bit of work to make it the home you deserve, but it still beats the heck out of sitting in an office. First you have to clear the workspace. Trees, rocks and grass make excellent building materials. Chop a little kindling to get a fire going. And you may just find something of interest beneath those moss-grown boulders or inside tree-hollows.
Coming up next is your own farm. Or a botanical garden. Or, better yet, an orchard or a rancha€”you name it. As luck would have it, there is a whole shipment of seeds and
continental animals on that plane. Different strokes for different folks. Mango and papaya ain’t no fun? Why, grow cabbage aplenty! Giraffes too gaudy? You can keep a
chicken or twenty and a herd of pigs. What could be better than greasy scrambled eggs-and-bacon to start a tropical morning with?
Nature takes its course, and predators are abundant on the island, but so long as you got brain to go with brawn, your sheep and goats will be safe. Once you build a workshop, you can work a piece of ironwood into a hefty club. Fasten a knapped quartz rock to it, and you get a hand-axe to ward off that pesky wolf. Don’t stop therea€”more adventures await!
Adventures on the island are many and varied. What’s in the treasure chest that washed up ashore? Who’s on that mystical ship rocking in the waves? And is that a pirate’s ghost creeping about? You can’t fight apparitions with a hand-axe.

Half of all Smartphone Users in EU, US, and Australia Prefer Android

The latest figures published by market analysis firm Kantar Worldpanel ComTech have revealed that Android smartphones are by far the most popular type of handset in the United States, Europe, and Australia. The analysis used data from a period lasting twelve weeks, which ended on the 10th of June. Over that three month period smartphones that use Android accounted for over half of all smartphones sales in the countries analysed. This is certainly a milestone to be recognised by Android’s creator, Google, because never have Android mobile devices been so popular.

Breaking Down the Figures
Out of the three continents looked at, Europe saw the biggest change. The five biggest markets were analysed, these being Great Britain, France, Germany, Spain, and Italy. The biggest increase was witnessed in Spain, where the number of Android smartphone sales more than doubled, from 41.3 percent in the previous year to 84.1 percent this year. This means that now 4 out of 5 smartphone owners in Spain use Android. Germany followed, with an increase of 27.2 percent in Android users, from 41.3 percent this time last year to 68.5 percent now. Italy came third in the rankings, up 24.3 percent, from 25.3 percent in 2011 to 49.6 percent this year. Fourth place was France, with Android sales increasing 21.3 percent from last year’s figure of 37.5 percent. The smallest increase was seen in Great Britain, where Android smartphones sales increased 8.5 percent between 2011 and 20122, up from 48.7 percent to 57.2 percent.
In similarity to markets across Europe, the sale of Android smartphones in Australia also rose significantly, from 36.4 percent last year to 56.9 percent this year, marking an overall 20.5 percent increase. Out of all the countries surveyed, the United States was the only country where the sale of Android smartphones actually decreased, down 6.8 percent, from 57 percent last year to 50.2 percent this year. Interestingly, the United States was the country that saw the largest rise in the sales of iOS mobile devices like iPhones and iPads. The only other country that saw a rise and not a fall in the sale of iOS mobile devices was Great Britain, where sales of Android mobile devices rose the smallest.

The Fall of Symbian
Many people may have completely forgotten about Symbian, or perhaps never heard of it if they are new to mobile phone technology. Once a leader in the market of smartphones, the demise of Symbian now seems imminent. There have been huge losses for Symbian in every country analysed apart from the United States, where the sales of Symbian devices actually rose, but even now they only hold a 0.5 percent market share. In Italy, where Android sales where highest, Symbian sales dropped a whopping 36.8 percent, from 40.2 percent to 3.4 percent. Last year Symbian and Android were neck and neck with just over 1 percent between them. The picture is much different now, with Symbian losing much of its smartphone market share within the space of a year.

Reasons for the Rise of Android
The Consumer Insights Director at Kantar Worldpanel, Mr Dominic Sunnebo, had this to say about why Android has ended up on top. “We are seeing much of the Android sales growth being driven by consumers trading up from feature phones to smartphones. Android handsets currently offer an easier platform to enable these consumers to upgrade, as many first time smartphone consumers state ‘price of handset’ and ‘multimedia capabilities’ as their main reason for choosing an Android device.”

The Rise of the Smartphone
More and more people are migrating from standard mobile phones to smartphones, and it is a trend that is predicted to continue. The future of these powerful mobile devices looks bright, and that fact that every year more and more hi-tech handsets are released onto world markets signals there is no lack of demand for them. New smartphones are blurring the boundaries of exactly what the device is, a mobile computer or simply a powerful mobile phone, and has caused home gadget insurance companies to revaluate how they provide cover for such expensive items. With all the different accessories and apps available to customise smartphones, they can be used for thousands of different purposes, from a credit card scanning machine at a shop checkout to a computer gaming device. Only time will tell if Android can hold the lead and become a word that is synonymous with smartphone and tablet.

Mobile Gaming at E3

Over the past few years, mobile gaming has seen a dramatic increase. Nokia Snake is no longer the pinnacle of mobile gaming and as the hardware improves so too do the games. So perhaps it doesn’t come as much of a shock that this year, E3 has seen an influx of mobile gaming companies, clamouring to showcase their wares to the world. So put away your next-gen consoles and your super fast computer – mobile gaming is taking the world by storm. Here are some of the highlights:
GREE: The Facebook of Mobile Gaming
Most ‘hardcore’ gamers simply cringe whenever they hear the world ‘social’ applied to their beloved gaming. So while social games might not have been at the top of the agenda for E3, social-giant GREE were determined to make themselves heard. This Japanese social gaming network led the charge for mobile gaming companies, showcasing 6 snazzy new games while flexing its virtual muscles. These brand new titles include:
  • Resident Evil VS – The classic survival horror arrives on the mobile platform, complete with social integration. Soon, you’ll be able to shoot, stab and attempt to survive the undead apocalypse. All from the comfort of your mobile phone.
  • Gang Domination – A social card game akin to Mafia Wars, albeit with a Texas Hold’em slant. Run your mob and take on other gangsters – even engage in some PVP with your friends.
  • Wacky Motors – Essentially a social version of Mario Kart, this new racing game by GREE has a lot of potential. Race alongside your friends and customize your vehicle, from cool paintjobs to awesome vehicular weaponry.
But that’s not all. GREE will also be teaming up with 2K games to produce social versions of the gaming classics, Civilization and Pirates! If that’s not something to be excited about, I don’t know what is… social integration could be exactly what’s needed to breathe new life into these old, classic formats. So it seems that GREE have pushed out all the stops for E3… could this be a sign that the mobile gaming industry is becoming that little bit more hardcore?
Upcoming Games Announced
Of course, there are plenty of other awesome new titles just around the corner. Whether it’s beat ‘em ups, puzzle games or online RPGs, it seems there’s something for everyone.
  • The Amazing Spiderman – One of the most exciting announcements for mobile gaming, The Amazing Spiderman promises stunning 3D open world gameplay. Take down criminals and swing from building to building in Gamesloft’s action-packed adventure game.
  • Motley Blocks – This inventive new puzzle game by Square Enix puts a brand new spin on the mobile puzzle genre. A strange mixture of Tetris and join the dots, Motley Blocks requires quick wits and dextrous digits if you want to stay ahead.
  • Demons’ Score – A weird and wonderful combination of Guitar Hero and Quake 3, this rhythm-based fighting game is like Parappa the Rapper but with hordes of evil demons. Based on the Unreal 3 engine, Demons’ Score is highly original… if a bit messed up.
  • Project Dragon – Previously known only as ‘The Project’, this amazing concept is a cross-platform MMORPG that will run on Android, iOS and even PC. Project Dragon aims to bring PC-based MMORPG gaming to mobile devices and from what we’ve seen so far, it just might succeed.
Android Gaming Pads
Not content with a massive new range of games, the mobile industry has pushed the boat out even further, in the form of some brand new gaming pads for Android devices.
  • NVidia have taken to the mobile market, helping Nyko to create the PlayPad, a slim-line gaming controller for Android devices. It’s both sleek and portable with all the retro style of an old-school NES controller. But with Bluetooth connectivity and button remapping, it’s a hell of a lot more.
  • The Power-A by MOGA is an awesome new controller that shows real progression in mobile gaming. This controller just screams ‘next-gen console’ and a quick glimpse reveals obvious inspiration from the Xbox 360 – a design which most gamers will be very familiar with.
So as you can see, there have been some real developments in Android gaming this year, but will they lead to mobile gaming being taken more seriously? At this rate, we’ll have to wait until E3 2013 to find out.
