Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on December 15th, 2010

If you are lonely, the ”Honey, it’s me!” app will help ease your pain. It was developed for the iPhone by Nabix and is for lonely South Korean men looking for love or something creepy. They used a cute 22 year old Korean model, Mina, for this ‘video-call’ application that has her saying all kinds of things that real women won’t say to you, while talking into the camera.

She will wish you good night or tell you to eat breakfast among other things, helping single guys feel like they have a woman in their life. She’s basically a virtual girlfriend. The app is free and the developers even plan to launch English, Chinese and Japanese versions of the app.

Android Market gets ‘Related’ apps tab without Android 2.3

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on December 5th, 2010

Google has updated its Android Marketplace to deliver the highly requested ‘Related’ tab to help shoppers looking for similar apps. The feature which makes apps more easily discoverable, was at first thought to be unique to the forthcoming Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) update. But users with a Droid 2 and Nexus One running Android 2.2 (Froyo) have discovered the tab appear on their devices overnight.

However, judging by the initial screenshots, the accuracy of the recommendations seems to need more tweaking. Users have reported finding related apps that are more relevant to their search up to a page down.

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on November 21st, 2010

AutoBot is a new iPhone and Android app that works with a Bluetooth OBD-II dongle and lets you diagnose engine problems, keep track of maintenance, and even locate your car via GPS if it is stolen. It can even be configured to automatically send a text to loved ones if you get into an accident, telling them your GPS coordinates.

The app recently won a startup competition at i-Stage 2010. It sounds great, but sadly it isn’t slated to be available until 2012. When it does ship it will cost $300 for the hardware and the software, with an extra fee to get rid of pop-up ads.

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on November 16th, 2010

The app lets users make outbound calls using a Google Voice number at its reduced rates and also supports free outbound messages. You can also check texts and voicemail with push notifications when they come in while the app is closed.

The app needs a Google Voice account of course. This comes after more than a year of controversy over its appropriateness for the store. Apple says that it never rejected the app but had let the title languish for months even after an FCC investigation. But it’s here now.
